Access 2010 Ribbon and Custom Menu

Hi,
I am trying to convert and Access 2003 database to an Access 2010 database.    The issue is that the Access 2003 database has a custom menu bar that I need to include in Access 2010.  I know it generally comes in as an Add in in the ribbon but I do not want users to have access to anything other than the custom menu bar.  

I read online that I need to hide the ribbon in order to prevent access to the Quick Access Toolbar but I can't seem to hide the ribbon and use the custom menu bar from Access 2003.  

What is the best way to display the custom menu bar from 2003 while hiding the ribbon and quick access toolbar?

Thanks,

Josette

Thank you for the information.  I was able to do what I needed by changing the file extension to accdr.

I will have to start working on a custom ribbon.

Thanks.
