Can any body tell me if it is possible to change the colour of the status bar and toolbar in the way you can edit the background colours of othe rcontrols?

Is it even possible?  Is it set by windows?

Yes you can do anything with Access
Put this behind a button.
This renames a table in my database called EXEPOS32 the name in my table is Test and I changed it to NewTest.

You must have the relevant Data object Library added in the references. In my case it is Access7 I have added the 3.51 object Library.  This works! Thank you in advance for the points - VoodooMan

Private Sub B_Rename_Click()

Dim db As Database
Dim rs As DAO.Recordset
Dim ws As Workspace
Set db = OpenDatabase("C:\Exepos32\exepos32.mdb")

db.TableDefs("Test").Name = "NewTest"

End Sub
