In 2000 it runs the  RunCommand WindowHide in the autoexe macro. However in 2007 this does not work. How could i accomplish the same in 2007

looking at the application more i noticed that the main form has on the property form open event: tools.hide toolbar and then on the close event: tools.show toolbar.  Maybe this is the problem and not my the runcommand windowhide. Please help.

thank you

Hi Rick

What is the window you are trying to hide?  Is it the Navigation Pane (which used to be the Database Window)?

If so, go to Access Options > Current Database and uncheck Display Navigation Pane

If you need it done via the macro for some reason, then before executing the WindowHide command you must select something in the nav pane:

SelectObject Table, , Yes

Note that you do not have to specify the table name.

Best wishes,

Sorry for not replying before. I was assigned to work on another task.

I put in the main_form open event:

DoCmd.ShowToolbar "Ribbon", acToolbarNo

and in a button that only shows for admins:

 DoCmd.ShowToolbar "Ribbon", acToolbarYes

This hides the ribbon but not the navation pane.

I will try to add the winodw hide.

Could you provide the specific commands to do this.

I understood from your original question that you were using a macro, not VBA code.  Not to worry - IMO it is much easier in code:
DoCmd.SelectObject acTable, , True
RunCommand acCmdWindowHide

Open in new window
