I have an Access 2003 database with a single custom toolbar that only appears on one form.  Other than that there are no toolbars visible.

To the right of my custom toolbar is a dropdown arrow with "Add or remove buttons".  The options within this are disabled, but is there any way to hide this dropdown arrow.

I don't think you can remove the Customize option, but of course you can disable it (but you seem to have done that already).

@LSMConsulting:
You're sure there's no way to do this through changing the Application.CommandBars object?!

I had a quick look and couldn't see it.

Well, it might be worth trying ;-)

Btw: obviously you can disable that button within access options menu (somewhere), so it will be greyed, if it helps?!?

Kind regards
Alex

Thanks Alex - It is disabled, it just seems a little pointless (in this instance).
