I have reviewed several post on this subject, but still fail to achieve my goal.  In MS Access there is a drop down beside the quick access toolbar.  This drop down allows the user to customize the QAT.  I need to either disable that drop down OR disable the more controls option on that drop down.  I don't care which.  I just need to block users from being able to add the design buttons to the QAT which would allow them to access the back-end.  I have my switchboard opening as Modal, so I'm close to locking this down to end users.  I just have this last problem.

I do have a custom ribbon.  I have removed all from the QAT and have my ribbons working correctly.  I just don't understand how to make the QAT where the end user cannot customize, or control what they can customize.

Thanks in advance for all help.

Are you using start from scratch in your ribbon XML?

You can also try adding empty QAT tags to your ribbon xml:

<QAT>
</QAT>


If that doesn't help, can you post the ribbon XML ?

I had tried that, thanks.  Here is my code.

<customUI xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/office/2009/07/customui">
  <ribbon startFromScratch="true">
  <qat>
    <qat/>
<tabs>
      <tab idMso = "TabHomeAccess" visible = "true"/>
       <tab idMso="TabCreate" visible="false" />
       <tab idMso = "TabDatabaseTools" visible = "false" />
        <tab idMso = "TabExternalData" visible = "false" />
       </tab>
    </tabs>
   </ribbon>
   </customUI>
