    Unanswered: Disabling Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V & hiding the Help drop-down

    I've searched high and low for this, but I can't find a way to disable Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V in Access. Does anyone know of a way? It's possible in Word and Excel, so surely it's do-able in Access?

    Also, does anyone know how to hide the Help drop-down that appears in the top right of custom menu bars in Access 2003? It's the box with the words 'Type a question for help' in it. Even if you don't put any items in your menu bar, it still appears.

    One way to disable Ctrl + C would be to look at using a macro called AutoKeys. An AutoKeys macro overrides normal shortkeys.
    If you set a new function to Ctrl + C (E.g MsgBox "Ctrl+C has been disabled") this will run instead of copying.

    Sorry for nto being too clear, but I hope this helps!

    That seems to work, however, it also cancels the copy and paste operations in design mode too! Any other ideas?

    Have a look at events:

    OnKeypress

    This will make it specific to a form, not the project.
