    Adding items to default menu

    I want to add custom items to the default menu bar of my access database. I've tried the customise function but it only changes my default bar in every database I open - it doesn't change the menu bar for the database when other people open it.

    I can't find a way (in the "Customise" function) to delete the default menu bar and replace it with something else. I can do the VB but, the Access 97 Help says it's not needed.

    Can anyone help ?

    Re: Adding items to default menu

    Hi Garry,

    You'll want to create a new menu bar within the specific database. You can drag all of the necessary menu items form the standard menubar to the custom menubar (you can use Ctrl when dragging to make a copy of each item). You can also add your custom items.

    In the Startup Dialog (Tools|Startup...) you can assign the new custom menubar as the default for the current database. The custom menu should be the default menu for the database on any computer.

    Hope this helps.

    Great ! It works. Many thanks. The trick for me was the hint about Tools/Startup.

    Cheers.
