Access97/Transfer Menubar

I am working in Access 97 and I have created a function that will query records based on user input and then create a new database.  I then export the new querydef and data as a table to the new database using the TransferDatabase method.  I am also exporting a report to the new database.  This report uses a custom menubar.  My problem is this; when I export the report, the menubar does not go with it.  Is there a way to transfer a menubar that is not a macro?  I know it can be done from an open database using the 'Get External Data' selection from the file menu.  But I need to export not import.  Any suggestions?

I do not know of any way to directly export a custom menubar.  I think the best solution would be to use the CommandBars.Add method, along with the necessary code to completely recreate your menubar in the new database.  This should be fairly straightforward, because you can simply copy the appropriate commands and code from the menubar you have already created.  The initial code would be written as follows:

Set MyNewMenu = CommandBars.Add(Name:="MyMenu", Position:=msoBarRight, MenuBar:=True)
With MyNewMenu
     .Protection = msoBarNoMove
     .Visible = True
End With
 Then, simply use the Add method to add your custom controls to the newly created menubar.
