Is there a way to turn off the defult menu bar? I do not want the user
to see the File, Edit, View, etc. menu.

How do you turn it off?

Michael,
Create a menubar of your own with only what you want the user to see. Then
have Access use that menubar when it starts.

In a form's Menu bar property set it to =0.

Menu bar: =0

I have tried creating a menu bar and telling access to use it, but it
errors when I start. I basically want a menu with an option to EXIT the
program thats all.

I will try the Menu Bar: =0 and see if that works.

Ok I tried the Menu Bar = 0 and it gave me a macro error.
I added a menu bar called BldBnk and then added EXIT to it.
I tried to set the menu bar to BldBnk but it says it is the wrong type.
I dont care if any menu bars are showing, in fact that is what I want. I
have a built in menu through forms.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance!!

I haven't used MGFoster's method, but I do use what allan suggested all
the time.

When you build your menu bar, in the menu customization "Customize"
dialog, under the toolbars tab, select the menu you've created and click
on the properties button. A tool bar properties dialog will appear. In
the Type drop down, there are three choices: menu bar (what you want),
Tool bar (what new menu default to and what your BldBnk is, most likely)
and popup (these provide short cut menus, ie, right clicky things).

Make sure the type is set to menu bar (and I always, below that, tick
the "show on tool bars menu", just to help me with the way i develop and
keep track of things).

Then, you may do one or combination of things. 1) in your mdb
tools->startup window, replace the default menu bar with tBldBnk - it
will be available from the drop down, or 2) in the Other tab of the form
proerties window, enter the name of the menu bar in the menu bar
property - you can use this property to have different menus appear when
different forms have the focus.

The above will work.
