Tip - Right Click - "Filter For" found

P: n/a
I did a lot of searching and found many who said this couldn't be done.

After searching I didn't "seem" to turn up anyone who provides this
solution. If you posted or found something on this great... but don't nuke
me for not hiring a private a2kX investigator to find it.

If you are deploying the Runtime of any of these versions of Access you can
get the right-click context menu to show the "Filter For: <textbox>" option
by doing the following:

Customize toolbars
Click New, name it
Check "Shortcut Menus" toolbar on and click "Table" then "Datasheet View
Drag the beautiful "Filter For: <textbox>" menu item over to your new

This part is well known, but in case you don't know:
To make that show up on runtime right-click you need to do properties-type
on that new toolbar and select "popup". Then on the db startup options
select your toolbar from "Shortcut menu bar". This only shows up when you
are running in the runtime environment or possibly with the /runtime switch.
