Repost: "Officelink s" Problem On Menu Bar Under Access 2007

I have an Office 2003 database with custom menu bars that work fine
under Access 2007 with the following exception. The Officelinks menu
item, "Analyze it with Microsoft Office Excel" is grey out and won't
work.

Does anyone know why this is and what my options are. I'd much rather
stick with the menu bar rather than revert to 2007's Ribbon.

Check the menu items' OnAction property: if it is blank, then the
button will appear greyed out.

Hi,

AFAIK Access 2007 does not support any more the "analyze" item for at least
reports and also does not allow to export reports to excel.
Maybe this is reflected by the disabled menu item.

Ciao, Sascha

Thanks for the replies everyone. Yes, it is a report menu bar that
I'm seeing the problem on. Why would they drop this functionality for
reports in A2007? Doesn't seem to make any sense.

I don't miss it.
Reports exported to Excel or Word never looked great. ;-)
For Word I'd better build a template and automate it and for Excel I'd just
export data using transferspreads heet.

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".

Let's talk about the concept of autonomous AI software engineers and no-code agents.
