Looks to me like it is a custom menubar within the database and if it is not yours then you should be able to delete it by going into the customize menubars option.
Cheers, Andrew


I have de-selected all of the menubars in the customize option, and yet it still appears.
There could be code making it appear so seach for the menubar name in your VBA modules, there could also be a property set on one of your forms are in the Startup properties. Deleting the Menubar would atleast get you to an error to find the code.
