I want to be able to click a button and have a menu header display the options below it. For example, click a command button (not the menu header itself) and the options within the FILE menu header be displayed (NEW, OPEN, SAVE, etc.). This sounds like a simple command request, but I've tried repeatedly to no avail. Any suggestions??

Use the SendKeys command as follows...

Private Sub Command1_Click()
    SendKeys "%F", True
End Sub

Of course this requires the Keyboard access key of 'F' for your File Menu.
