Yes ..
(make a backup copy of the db first --- just in case)

Basically ..

CommandBars("YourShortCutItemName").Enabled = False  ' True
CommandBars("YourShortCutItemName").Visible= False      ' True

I think it needs more.

I'm trying to do this in the On Enter event of the subform, where I can determine if I want to disable an item or not.  As a result I get a run time error 5 'An Invalid procedure call or argument'.

Wouldn't I have to identify the Shortcut menu, first?  Or something?

Well ... it might be like this:

CommandBars("SomeMenuName").Controls("YourShortCutItemName").Visible= False

The exact syntax escapes me at the moment ...
