Question
Can I change database options to - show menus etc  while the database is open?
eg --> Can I do a Ctrl S (I'm looking for VBA code) and show the Navigation Pane, Show Full Menus, Allow Default Shortcut Menus.

I know
I can open the database with the shift key and see what I want.
I can Display Navigation Pane by using the below code
                  DoCmd.SelectObject acTable, "tbl_MyTable", True


A little more info
I set Current Database options so my users don't see some things I don't want them to see
    * Display Navigation Pane = False
    * Allow Full Menus = False
    * Allow Default Shortcut Menus = False

I want a way in code to show the above without getting out of the database.

Thanks in advance for your help.

I don't think so, ...the database must be restarted for these settings to take effect
(I will cheat and just run the Compact/repair utility)

Do you not get this message when you change the settings manually?

I know the command to hide and display the navigation pane from code is:
DoCmd.RunCommand acCmdWindowHide
DoCmd.runCommand acCmdWindowUnHide

Open in new window

I know you can completely restrict the ribbon and show it all again by doing this:
DoCmd.ShowToolbar "Ribbon", acToolbarNo
DoCmd.ShowToolbar "Ribbon", acToolbarYes

Open in new window


I'll play around with the rest and see what I can find.

Thanks for the info

I've tried with no error messages, and little success.

This works for me.
      *  DoCmd.SelectObject acTable, "tbl_MyTable", True

This does not work for me.
      *  DoCmd.RunCommand acCmdWindowUnhide
      *  DoCmd.ShowToolbar "Ribbon", acToolbarYes

Try these:

CurrentDB.Properties("ShowNavigationPane") = True    <-- not certain if that one is right

CurrentDB.Properties("AllowFullMenus") = True

CurrentDB.Properties("AllowShortcutMenus") = True

Out of all the solutions - this was the only one I could get to work for me.  I did it a little different.

1) On my Quick Access Toolbar I put two extra Icons (Note this toolbar is unique to my computer and does not follow the application.)
    * Compact & Repair
    * Close Database
2) If the database is open with >>no<< access to the menus and Navigation Pane, hold the shift key down, click Compact & Repair icon on the toolbar - your back up with full ribbons & Navigation pain.

3) If the database is open with >>Full<< Ribbons and Navigation Pane (held shift down while opening it) and you want to see what the user sees, click Close Database icon on the toolbar - you should see the database on the list under the file ribbon - click it.  You are back up with no ribbons or Navigation pain.

Hope this helps someone.
