    Hide Subform Navigation Control (Access 2003)?

    Is it possible by any means to remove/hide the navigation bar (ie. the forward, back and add new record control) at the bottom of a subform in Access 2003?

    Seraphelia,

    Welcome to the Lounge as a new poster.


    1. In design mode select the sub-form properties {right-click the little square in the top left corner of the form and click on properties}.
    2. Click the All tab.
    3. Scroll down and change "Navigation Buttons" to No.

    Note: In the picture the form is NOT shown in design mode so that you can see that the navigation buttons are not there.

    Thanks for the replying, RG.

    I must be missing something here. Following your instructions I see the Navigation Buttons option and indeed when I change it to 'No' the Navigation bar on the Form disappears but the Navigation Bar on the Subform remains visible and fully active when I go to Form View.

    If I select the subform there is no Navigation Buttons option which I half expected to see listed there. Is it normal for the Subform not to have that option?

    Seraphelia,

    The option should be there. Try editing the subform by it self, e.g. in the database window select the subform then click the Design button. Now right-click on the box to the left of the ruler, select Properties, select the All tab and you should find it.

    Thanks, RG. Your certainty that the Navigation Buttons should be there made me determined to get a result and I have now got the option to remove them. Not certain what's going on here but I deleted the subform and made another via the wizard and sure enough as you instructed the option was listed. I'm guessing but it seems that I had the properties for the subform control but not for the subform form. When I made the subform originally I must have linked something up wrong.

    Very confusing Big thanks!
