    Question Unanswered: Hiding toolbars + menubars on forms

    Hi there,
    I started writing an access application about a year ago and since then its grown and grown as users have wanted more and more features.There is approx 150 forms 100s of reports and... well . When I started I didnt know about custom menu bars/ toolbars and now 80% of all forms have the access 2000 built in menus/ toolbars. I have created a module that includes the code to hide the menu and toolbar. Finaly my question - How can I make all forms look at this module when loaded without going in to each of the forms propertys individualy??
    If anyone has got the answer I would be very very happy!

    Thanks,
    Can anyone also tell me the difference between a menu bar and a toolbar. What are the 2 used for and when would you use a menu bar in preferance to a tool bar and vice versa??

    menubars are environment orientated, toolbars are object orientated

    Thanks for that...............................!
    So what is the difference between menubars that are environment orientated and toolbars that are object orientated and why choose one over the other?
    If I had a report and just wanted to "Print", "Close" would I use a menu bar or a toolbar? Or does it not really matter?
