Slidng windows in Ms Access

P: n/a
Hello,
In the database that I'm making, I would like to introduce sliding windows
menu system like Word ( file, edit, etc.) that, if you click on open down
toward and then you can click on one option.
Is there some tool in Ms Access, that implements this kind of windows? If
there is, what is the name of it in the toolbar? Is there OLE tool for it?
Are there some useful tutorial that explain how I can use this tools in the
database?
Thank you?

The process for creating a new menu in Access is the same as for other
Office applications;
start with View - Toolbars - Customize.
I'd recommend creating a separate toolbar, because that can be stored with
your application and used on other desktops; if you customize an existing
toolbar, it's not nearly so easy to move to a different PC.

You most certainly can build custom menu bars that cascade to sub-menu bars.

Here is some screen shots of ms-access, and some menus I made:

Here is tutorial on how to make these:
