No ribbon or Menu options in my database...

Hello All,
I recently inherited a split database that only displays an 'Exit' button along the top of the screen on the front end (the DB was written in MS Access 2003).  There is no File button when I use Access 03, nor an 'Office' button (or any other ribbon icons) when I use Access 07.  Can someone please help me restore the menu bar?  I'm pretty sure the ribbon is coded out, but I am clueless as to how to get to the code.  Thanks in Advance!

    I stumbled upon the solution myself!

    I was unaware that if you open the DB while holding down the 'Shift' button, it will open the DB in a normal view.  From there I was able to restore the ribbon.  Thanks Anyway!!!
