Get rid of "Add or remove buttons" dropdown menu on custom toolbar

P: n/a
Access 2000 and 2003.

I have made a custom toolbar to allow users to filter by form, etc.

The only things I want to appear on that toolbar are the 3 buttons to
control filtering. At the right end of the toolbar there is a little
arrow pointing down, and if the user clicks it, it says "Add or Remove

I tried the properties, etc., but can see no where to get rid of this
command. I have the toolbar set to allow no changes, so hypothetically
the users can't do anything anyway, but I don't even want them to know
it is an option.

Is there a more general option I need to change somewhere?

Thank you,

You need to use a menu bar, and not a tool bar if you want to get rid of

just change your tool bar to a menu bar. Doc it up top, and then turn off
the allow moving, re-sizing etc.

You will get a resulting standard windows menu that most applications have.
You can see some screen shots of menus I made here:
