Export To Excel Menu
I'm working with a legacy app that was written long ago.  Whenever a report is generated and previewed on the screen a menu appears at the top, upper left of the screen right under the blue 'Microsoft Access line.

I attached a picture of that portion of the  screen

If I click on the first icon of the menu I get a drop down of:
Restore
Move
Size
Minimize
Maximize
Close

Immediatley to the right of that icon is an icon that looks like a miniature Excel logo with text that says 'Export Screen Contents To Excel'.  When I hover over the 'Excel' option it displays 'Office Links'.

I can't find anywhere that is placing that menu on the screen.

Where is it coming from?  What causes this to display at the top of the form?
How can I change the contents of it?
Or how can I supress it from appearing?

I've never seen it on any forms that I created so the prior developer wanted it there.
