Access 2007 menu bar, toolbar...

Can anybody tell me how to create a menu bar, toolbar and shortcut menu in Access
My built-in toolbars and menus have disappeared. I want to return built-in toolbars that came with Microsoft Access to their original settings. I'm having trouble either pasting or resetting an icon image onto a menu or toolbar. I can't customize a toolbar. I can't see my entire toolbar on the screen. I can't show or hide a toolbar, menu bar, or shortcut menu. I can't find a menu command, toolbar button, or dialog box option. I created a custom toolbar and shared it with another person, but it looks different on their computer.

Designate a global menu bar or shortcut menu
By using your own global menu bar, you control what tasks users can perform in your Microsoft Access file by limiting and customizing the menus and commands that are available. The global menu bar replaces the built-in menu bar for all Microsoft Access windows, except where you've added a custom menu bar for a form or report. You also can define a global shortcut menu to replace built-in shortcut menus for datasheets, forms, form controls, and reports.

Keep dropping my Menu Bar
When I open my application I simply hide my Menu Bar then when I close my form I make it visible. This works when I step through the code but in real time I lose my Menu Bar when I hold the shift button and open my file. So now when I open every other Access database or even go to create a new one my Menu Bar is missing. There must be something simple? Any suggestions would be great! If posting code is necessary I can work on that - have it on my work laptop.

Startup options
You can use startup options to control how a Microsoft Access file looks and behaves when it opens. The startup options apply only to the current Access file. The startup properties don't override the property settings for a specific toolbar, menu bar, shortcut menu, form, or report. For example, the Menu Bar and Shortcut Menu Bar options in the Startup dialog box don't override the property settings for specific forms or reports that have a custom menu bar or shortcut menu. Thus, when you open a form or report, Microsoft Access displays the custom menu bar attached to the form or report instead of the global menu bar specified in the Startup dialog box. You can also create an AutoExec macro to carry out an action whenever an Access file opens. You can use the Startup dialog box instead of or in addition to an AutoExec macro. An AutoExec macro runs after the startup options have taken effect; therefore, you should avoid any actions in an AutoExec macro that change the effect of the startup option settings. For example, if you specify a form in the Display Form/Page box in the Startup dialog box, and you also use the OpenForm action in an AutoExec macro, Microsoft Access first displays the form specified in the Startup dialog box, then immediately displays the form specified in the OpenForm action.


Create Windows menu toolbar in Access 2007
I'm building some forms for an Access 2007 database and need to try and find a way of having all these forms called from the same environment, so in other words have a top menu as youwould in Word or Excel or another standard Windows / Office application, so you could have File -> Print, Exit, or Edit -> Copy, Cut, Paste, or Clients -> Add New, Amend and so on.

There doesn't seem to be a way I can do this in Access 2007, is this true?

I don't want to have lots of completely independent forms in my application, ideally they should all exist and be placed in the same environment so that all the user has to do is click theicon to launch the application, and do everything they need to do from within that, using the navigation menu at the top.

quick access toolbar for Access 2007/2010 runtime
I'm deploying an Access 2003/2007 project to a mixed environment of users -- some have Access 2003 full version, some Access 2007, some Access 2010, some Access 2010 runtime. I there a way to have one project that will display a Quick Access toolbar that has a couple of basic items on it? E.g. a button for Form View, one for Datasheet View, one for Print.

This was easy with Access 2003, and I can customize the toolbar for people with full Access 2007 or 2010. But I'm stumped on Access 2010 runtimes.

I looked into custom ribbons, but they seem to only work with Access databases, not projects.


Compact and Repair Database
In MS Access 2003 I used this code to compact and repair my database,

Public Sub CompactDB()

CommandBars("Menu Bar"). _
Controls("Tools"). _
Controls("Database utilities"). _
Controls("Compact and repair database.."). _
accDoDefaultAction
End Sub

But for some reason this doesn't work in MS Access 2007. That might be because MS Access 2007 does not have a Menu Bar.

How would I write the code to manipulate the menus in 2007 to compact and repair the database. This is a stand alone database.


How do you disable sorting?
Sort Ascending and Sort Descending are found in the following locations:

In the main menu under Records.
In the Form View toolbar.
In the right-click menu.

Customizing the menu and toolbar is a partial solution because the right-click menu will continue to offer sorting. Is there no straightforward way of indicating "Sorting=False" for a given form
