Can you transfer custom menus/toolbars

P: n/a
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.

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.
