I had a Microsoft Access 2003 Application with custom menu bar - tool bar & context menu.
They were created via UI in Access 2003 (right clicking hte menu and selecting Customize)

After upgrading this database to Access 2010, the menubar and toolbar is added to Add-Ins Tab.
How can I remove them?

thank you.

They're not my custom menu and toolbar anymore.
After upgrading this access file, I have removed Access Ribbon and added my own customized ribbon.
See the image bellow.

Your solution hides them not removing them.
If they are hidden and not removed, any user of the application can check this option to show them again ,
which clicking them may show some errors (the macro doesn't exist) or may cause other problems.

many thanks for any other suggestion.

Well ... not sure you can remove it. Should be a way.  But re:

"If they are hidden and not removed, any user of the application can check this option to show them again "

If you hide the File tab, then user cannot get to those options ...

the easiest way is, in Access 2003,  remove the customized tool bars before converting/upgrading  to A2010

It is possible too use DAO to work with the old command bars.

You can also try this to delete one:

Application.CommandBars("My Toolbar").Delete

I've actually removed Option from File tab.
and have used  ChangeProperty "AllowBypassKey", 1, False to bypass shift+double click on the file.

But you know there's a lot of ways to open it normally.
The users don't bother to go VB and play with it, because they know it's not their section.
But when there's a menu and a toolbar with familiar titles, they may try it.

I wish I had done it. But now that I'm on 2010, I'm not able to save it as a mdb file. I'm receiving an error telling me that the database is using some properties that prevent saving it as a 2000-2002 version.

Sorry, I forgot to add the explanation.

The line <button idMso="ApplicationOptionsDialog" visible="false"/> will hide options


You need to add a table UsysRibbons table.
