Removing a custom context menu in Access 2013 leads to problems
Posted on 2014-12-19
I'm converting an old Access 2000 database to an access 2013 (.accdb format) database.
In the old mdb there was a simple custom context menu (two macros) which was assigned in the startup options of the database.
I've converted the database to the .accdb format.
I have gone onto the 'this database' options and changed the context menu to (default) and turned off the check box for using context menus, closed the database and opened it.
The context menu does not appear when I right click the mouse :-)
Now I opened the database, deleted the two macros which are no longer required and started the database. The initial form shows :-) BUT I also get an error message that the macro can't be found :-((((
Obviously I can just leave the macros in and everything works as I want but that is really silly. Why can't I remove these unwanted macros ?
