I have an Access 2002 database that we want to put lmits on what people can see as far as the tool bars. We have disable toolbars on start up. I have put a control on the menu bar that shows - will this show on any one who opens that database from a different comptuer?

For example - If i customize the menu bar that has file, edit, view on it and add a button to import a file - will this show up on another computer if they open the database.

No.
Those changes are just on your machine.

If you want to include a menu or toolbar for your application you have to create a new one.  And you also have to assign that new toolbar to each form or report where you want it to appear, using the form/report properties.
