new to Access 2010.... converted mdb to accdb ... startup properties

Hi EE,

Under A2003:

Many years ago,  a colleague, who i lost touch with
      gave me logic to set up application properites

Although a user can break into a mdb using shift + f11
    he showed me how to use application properties
             to hide menu bars etc.  when want the screen to operate in prod mode
             to show menu bars etc   when want to test.

He taught me to create 2 transparent buttons.
        alt+p   - would set the screen to prod mode
        alt+t    - would set the screen to test mode

Uploaded a sample mdb that converted to accdb.
Made the 2 command buttons described above visible.

When i do alt+p, am getting an error when creating the start up form property....
              "type mismatch"

Could you pls help me fix this error,
tx, sandra

Arrange your References in this order

x
since you  are using Office 2010, the references with "12" should be "14"

Alt+P is the Print command, so I assume your colleague has included custom code to "set the screen to prod mode" and such. You'd have to find that code (most likely it's in a macro named AutoKeys).
