how to create a profile for access 2010
Posted on 2011-09-14
In my organisation (a school) we have an access 2003 'application' used for pupil performance tracking. It is setup with a front and back-end mdb and users run it from a shortcut. They need to have full access 2003 installed.
We've upgraded our Office to 2010, including Access.
I've read that a conversion of the databases isn't necessary unless we need the new features, which at present we don't. So i've just updated the shortcut to use the Access 2010 executable. This works, but I first had to sort out the Trusted Locations setting.
Now it runs fine, but I can't find a way to remove the ribbon toolbar altogether.
I know there is a /profile command line switch, and I'm wondering if that is a solution?
Is it? and if so how would I create the profile in the first place?
any advice gratefuly recieved.
