Or this?

Dim I   ' Declare variable.
   For I = 0 To Frm.Controls.Count - 1
      If Not TypeOf Frm.Controls(I) Is Menu Then
         Frm.Controls(I).Enabled = State
      End If
   Next I

I don't know how to determine that.  There may be some trick with type library code, but I have no experience with it.
