annoying web toolbar

I like the idea of using hyperlinks in Access to open forms, macros, etc.  However, I find the web toolbar that pops up all the time quite annoying; it negates the usefulness of a hyperlink.

Is there any way I can permanently hide or disable the web toolbar?  Or at least in my database?

Edited text of question.
As part of your AutoExec macro or your first form's Load event, put in this line:

Action:     ShowToolbar
Arguments:  Web (name), No (show)

Docmd.ShowToolbar "Web", acShowToolbarNo

You may also want to reset the toolbar (acShowToolbarWhereAppropriate) when you exit your application. Otherwise there's a chance no one will ever see it. :o)

Hope that helps . . .

Access can't find the constant acShowToolbarNo.  Could you either give me the value or tell me what library I need to reference to?

Okay.  I think we have different versions of Access.  I'm developing in Access 97, and this is what the code should be:

DoCmd.ShowToolbar "Web", acToolbarNo

Thank you for your help.

What brewdog meant was acToolbarNo, not acShowToolbarNo.

sorry about the missed syntax there. I was going from memory since I was sitting at a Mac at the time. :o)
