  1. Create the Menu Bar.
    1. View ==> Toolbars ==> Customize ==> New.
    2. Enter Name ==> OK.
    3. Select New Toolbar ==> Properties.
    4. Set Type = Menu Bar
    5. Set Docking Options ==> Close.
    6. Select the Commands Tab ==> Select Category & related Commands.
    7. Drag-N-Drop Commands to the Menu Bar which should be visible on the screen.
    8. These are just the very basic steps for creating a Menu Bar then associating it with a Form
  2. Set the Form's Menu Bar Property (Properties ==> Other Tab ==> Menu Bar) = New Menu Bar.

Click on this link, then scroll down until you come to the topic "Options Tape".

http://www.mstipsandtricks.com/tips-...-features.html

The Options Tape replaces the previous versions Menu Bar and toolbars. Also it provides the main commands in Office Access 2007. One of the main advantages is that it put in a single location the tasks or the entry points used to request the visualization of menus, bars of tools, task’s panels or other components of the user interface.

24) When a data base is opened, the Options Tape appears in the upper edge of the Office Access 2007 main window.

Just curious puppydogbuddy, how do you create Menu Bars pro-grammatically in Access 2007, something analogous to the CommandBars Collection?

This post is over 11 years old...Access has moved on as well has some of these posters. Probably better to start a new thread...?
