    Question Unanswered: Access 2007: hide the office button ?

    Hi,

    I'm trying to migrate an Access 2000 project to Access 2007. I want that the frontend doesn't look like Access. This means: no ribbons, no office button, no Quick Access Toolbar, no database panel. In 2K, this was rather simple, but in 2007 I only managed so far to get rid of the ribbon (by replacing it with a blank ribbon) and the navigation pane, but I can't figure out what to do to hide the Office button and the QAT.
    Can anyone help me with this ?

    Cool Hidding Ribbon & Toolbars

    I have just tried using MSAccess 2007 on my 2003 application and I have got the same problem like what our friend is getting. Command like cmd.showtoolbars has no effect at all in 2007. I solve the problem temporarily by removing the check sign in ACCESS OPTION --> CURRENT DATABASE ----> RIBBON & TOOLBARS Option, all the option and I put my main menu macro at MENU BAR field, blank on Ribbon Name & Shortcut & Menu Bar but when I try to rerun my application it goes back to the original again because it didnt save the changes. I can convert my application from 2003 to 2007 but Im sure errors may arise. At the moment I dont have the time to see all these issues. But I will be following the subject. Thanks

    You CANNOT hide the office button. This is one of the things that makes the upgrade to 2007 so very un-desirable.

    Sure you can hide the office button. Just use an other icon.

    Under Access Options // Current Database fill the "Application Title" and "Application Icon".
