    Talking Unanswered: finalizing aplication

    I have finished my .mdb and now want to do some "finalizing". At first I want to hide access's menus on startup. How to do that ? How can I protect my vba code (I don't want users to see it, of course)

    lock ur VBA code up too matey

    also protect your vba code:

    1. go to vba editor
    2. Click tools <database name> properties
    3. Click protection
    4. Under lock project put a tick in 'lock project for viewing'
    5. Enter a password
    6. Hit OK

    Now they cant look at the code without entering the password!

    user level security perhaps? You can't easily protect it DRM-style if that's what you're thinking. The best you can do is make it unusable to anyone without proper credentials via passwords, location etc etc.
    oh yeah... documentation... I have heard of that.
