Can you transfer custom menus/toolbars

In a 2000, can you transfer custom menus and toolbars to a new Access
database. My mdf file is not compiling and I'm importing all data to a new
database but don't see a way to get the menus/toolbars over.

Yes, you can. (I'm going to pretend I know what I'm talking about here, I
asked the exact same question a few days ago and got an answer) :-)

Go to File->Import, after selecting the database to import from, pick
Options>>>. It will expand and show a check box to import Menus and
Toolbars.

HTH,
Randy

I think all you do is use File/Get External Data/Import wizard. Click
the 'Options' button and check 'Menus and Toolbars'.

I have a database I have converted from Access2 to 2002. All code, forms,
etc are working fine after very little modification. However I cant seem to
get the toolbars across. Because of security I had to export the forms,
tables, etc into a new access2 database then upsize that, so the upsize
might work smoothly if I can get the toolbar out of one Access 2 db into
another.

TIA

Andrew.

Andrew,

In Access 2.0 the Toolbars are stored in the hidden table MSysToolbars
You can import this table to your second (unsecure?) Access 2.0 database.

Hope this helps

Dear Microsoft, The current "Windows.Forms" controls included in the .Net Framework are good, but in many ways they're pretty basic, and I think it's time that you take Windows.Forms to the next level. I really think that the menus and toolbars used in Office 2003 should be added to the .Net Framework as standard controls in the next release of the Framework and VS.NET, codenamed "Visual Studio .Net for Yukon." This would truly take...

I have had a corrupted database, and started a new one by importing all tables, forms, linked tables, queries, modules, etc. into a blank database. This all worked fine, apart from a custom toolbar I had in the old one. Is there a way to copy this toolbar from the old to the new database ? tia, Bas Hartkamp.

Hi all, I'm trying to replace the default shortcutmenus that you get when you right-click a form in datasheet view. By default you get different menus for when you click a column (you can hide and freeze columns), a row (you can delete and insert rows), or a single cell (you can filter on the cell contents). I can work out how to replace the single cell shortcutmenu (you assign your custom menu to the underlying control) but not how to...

I distribute an A 2000 app as a mde. On a few customers, my custom menus are overwritten. The top menu is generally there but the choices on the menus are gone or replaced by something else. I can't figure this one out. Any ideas on what may be causing this? It happens on machines with A 2000 and A 2003, Win Home and Win XP. I've yet to see a pattern but it happens on about 3 or 4% of the users machines.

I have an Access app that has been distributed with run-time installation to many different customers over many years. It is developed in Access 2000. The custom menu bar has had no problems in the past. However on one new computer it was installed on last week the custom 'Tools' menu (which normally contains items such as 'Backup Data' and 'Preferences..' etc) has been replaced by a single menu item under Tools that says 'Other..'....

A few months back I was "playing" with an Access 2000 application I created. I somehow disabled the delete option from all menus, toolbars, and context menus. Now I cannot do any maintenance on the database because I cannot delete anything. I do not have a database password set up, or users with security and rights. I cannot find an option for how I did this and cannot remember how I did it. Any ideas?????

I have an Access 2003 front-end database with custom toolbars. The toolbars work fine. One annoying feature is that at the far right edge of each custom toolbar there a small dropdown arrow. When you hover over it with the mouse, a ControlTip Text of "Toolbar Options" is displayed. If you then click on the dropdrown arrow, it displays a popup menu of "Add or Remove Buttons", with a fly-out menu with the toolbar name at the top and...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
