Adding a menu bar items to a form

P: n/a
RLN
I was at this link to add a menu bar to my Access app.
http://office.microsoft.com/en-s/acc...890341033.aspx

I got the menu bar added, but had some more questions about it.

In the link above, there was mention of assigning it as the "Global
menu" bar, but it does not indicate how to specify a custom menu bar as
the global bar.
Any idea how to do this?

After I created my menu bar, I need to add multiple tiers across my menu
bar like example below, but am unsure as to how:

-"Title:Queries" "Title:Forms to Launch"
-Launch qryABC -View Accts(starts frmAccounts)
-Launch qryXYZ -View Employees (start frmEmp)
.....etc. .....etc.

Thank you for the help on this.

Go to Tools - Startup and you will see where to specify a custom menu bar as
the global bar.

Regarding multiple tiers across your menu ...
You can add two types of buttons to a menu:Custom and Menu.

When you need to perform a single action such as opening a form or report,
use a Custom button. When you need to drop down a list of menu options from
a parent menu, use a menu button. You add a menu button to the parent menu
then you add custom buttons to the menu button. You can also add another
menu button to a menu button then add custom buttons to that menu button.
Then when you click on the menu button on the main menu, you drop down a
list of menu options which includes the second menu button. When you click
on the second menu button, a sub-list of menu options drops down.
