Access 2013: Customize sub-menu for reports
Posted on 2014-09-18
Reworking a legacy Access database. Found the opportunity to improve performance of many reports. One change was to set the reports to pop up = yes. Makes them easier to see and work with; many are several hundred pages long.
Challenge is the right click menu has functions we don't want exposed to user and functions we used to get on the ribbon are not available in ribbon or right click menu. Best example is the Save As option in right click menu of a pop up style form. The default in Save As is to save a copy of the Access report, not a copy of the report info. for example save as a .pdf which is something we use regularly.
How to either customize the right click memo in pop up report, or alternatively get the ribbon functions operating on the pop up view, to allow print and save as .pdf functions back in front of users?
