Displaying Custom Menu Bars In Access 2007

P: n/a
I know that it is possible to force Access 2007 to the display custom
menu bars for an Access database developed in an earlier version by
using the customisation settings in A2007 to nominate a custom menu
bar to display on startup.

However is it possible to achieve this from within the earlier
version, perhaps by using code, so that one doesn't have to use A2007
to set the custom menu bar?

It seems that even if an application written in an earlier version has
a custom menu bar that displays on startup, A2007 ignores this and
displays the ribbon unless the custom menu bar is explicitly nominated
from within A2007.

I was seeing the same thing and I can't recall specifically what I did, but I
was able to get my 2000 MDE to display the same in 2000, 2002, 2003, and 2007
(no ribbon).

I will see if I can dig up what it was, but I'm fairly sure it was NOT something
I had to do in 2007's settings.
