Right Clicking a form gives users wrong power

P: n/a
Re:Access 2002

In my application when the main Invoice input form loads,
I have an Access app that has all the normal security (hide the
container, hide the toolbars, menubars, etc.)
Right now, when the main input form is displayed, the user can right
click anywhere on the form space and choose "Design Mode", and they can
have a heyday.

Anyway to lock them out and disable the right click on a form so they
can't do this?

(If your answer is "just build an .MDE", yes, I will agree that is a
good option to lock them out of form design. However, that would
create another issue in that the users have another requirement in this
project to have the ability to create ad-hoc reports in this app. I
don't think they can do that with an .MDE can they?)

Ideas?

Thanks.

Disable Default Shortcut Menus in the Startup properties.

No
Ideas?


Personally I would tell then to use a separate app of their own for
creating ad-hoc reports.
