    Access: Lost menu bar...part solution.

    I have some databases which I have inherited.

    When they open they quite often (99% of the time) do not show a menu-bar.

    I've found from some searching that I can solve this each time I open the database by :

    Open Access then go to the Immediate window (ctrl G). Paste
    commandbars("menu bar").Enabled = true in the window and hit "enter". This
    restores the Menu Bar!!

    However I would like to go one step further and for these databases where it is a problem have this command run as the database opens.

    I've tried messing with the Macros, created one called autoexec, which ran at startup but I could nt seem to get the code:
    "commandbars("menu bar").Enabled = true" to activate.

    Any advice appreciated.

    Hmmm so is it just on some databases or is it on all databases didn't realise some could turn off the menu, have you opened the database on a different machine etc? only ran into it being disabled by user error before and we just cleared the profile all sorted.

    what version of access / microsoft office is it ?

    I think if you go to view --> options or something like that you can force it to keep the menu bar or something weird like that.

    commandbars("menu bar").Enabled = "true"

    try that

    If you let me know what version I can load windows and have a play.
