Is there a way in code or macro to minimize  the navigation pane?  Still want to be able to click on it if needed.  Just want it to open my form with the navigation pane minimized.
Thanks, Pat

DoCmd.SelectObject acForm, , True
RunCommand acCmdWindowHide

In this case, you select the nav panel. Then hide it.

Code for a couple buttons to show/hide pane (adapt to your own code needs):

Private Sub cmdShowNavigationPane_Click()
DoCmd.SelectObject acTable, , True
End Sub

Private Sub cmdHideNavigationPane_Click()
DoCmd.NavigateTo “acNavigationCategoryObjectType”
DoCmd.RunCommand acCmdWindowHide
End Sub


I haven't tested this to see if it works, but I don't see why it shouldn't.

You both appear to be hiding it.  What if I just want to minimize it.  Is there a way?  Still want to see the >> to open it back up,
Thanks, Pat
