Well, you can try and email Steven - not sure you will get a response.  I don't have A2007 loaded to test.

ive got it in a VM

Ill try him... i just wondered if anyone else knew..

The problem is casued bc MS in the infinite wisdom chagned the background colour for the databse window in access 2007

We develop databases for clients of varying degress.

Many use real background images and button images and really look the part with images fading into the background giving rounded effects and non uniform shaped forms...

Really looks the part..

However now as clients updates, the graphics no longer seemingly dissolve into back bc the colour has changed.

Any help appreciated... I cant seem to find anythign else on EE that talks about 2007 and a fix for this

Thanks

Chances are low that someone has used this particular Leban's app in A2007 - but I could happen.

Take a look here also:
