Hiding Access Options on the Office Button

I'm building an application using A2K7 and I need to be able to hide
the navigation pane from my users. That's easy. I just hide it using
Access options and then disable special keys so they can't bring it up
using F11.

But what good does that do me if the users can just click on the
Office Button and then Access Options and reverse those settings? Not
much, but I can't seem to find a way to hide the Access Options
button. I know I can customize the ribbons and the Office Button
menus, but can I hide the Access Options button?

Thanks.

There may be other ways of achieving this, but I've found that the
IDBE Ribbon Creator does the trick. As well as creating ribbons, it
removes the stuff from the Office Button that you don't want your
users accessing. Google for it. It's available as a trial and is
cheap to purchase. Hope this helps.

Looks interesting, thanks. But even after looking at the website I'm
not sure if it will remove the Access Options button. I know it can be
used to customize the Office Button menu, but does that extend to
"Access Options"?

Best way is to download the trial and have a play. What I'm seeing on
the Office button in an app that I've used this on is:

"New", "Open" and "Close Database" buttons down the left and "Exit
Access" on the bottom right. Nothing else. It also removes the user's
ability to customise the Quick Access Toolbar. The only options left
for it are "Show Below The Ribbon" and "Minimize The Ribbon".
