Access 2000 /XP - Lost Menu Bar

P: n/a
ML
Across all of my Access 2000 applications, I have suddenly "lost" the menu
bar. File Edit ....... at the top.

I can't find any info on this "problem".

Any suggestions on getting it back will be greatly appreciated.

TIA

Does Alt+T cause the Tools menu to activate?
If so, choose Startup and you can then check the boxes for the items that
should appear.

If not, you will need to set the options with code.
Open the code window.
The open the Immediate window.
Enter:
dbEngine(0)(0).Properties("AllowBuiltinToolbars") = True

Other relevent properties to set include:
AllowSpecialKeys
AllowFullMenus
That should be enough to get your menus operating again.
