Adding Custom Menus, Toolbars, and Shortcut Menus to Your Forms

You can create custom menus to display with your forms and reports; there's no limit as to how many you can use. You can attach each menu to one or more forms or reports. Quite often, you will want to restrict what users can do while they're working with a form or report. By creating a custom menu, you can restrict and customize what users are allowed to do.

Designing a Menu

Prior to Access 97, Access users could create a custom menu bar by setting the MenuBar property to the name of a menu bar macro. This function was supported for backward compatibility only. In Access 97, and all subsequent versions of Access, custom menu bars, toolbars, and pop-up menus are all referred to as command bars. To create any of these three objects, choose View, Toolbars and then select Customize. After you have created a custom menu bar, toolbar, or pop-up menu, you can easily associate it with forms and reports by using the Menubar, Toolbar, and Shortcut Menubar properties, respectively.
