Ribbon Control In Access 2013
Posted on 2015-02-02
I've been using Access for over a decade but I'm new to 2013. I'm upgrading a 2003 app to 2013 for a client.
Based on EE advice I purchased IDBE Ribbon Creator 2013 to create the legacy menu's in the ribbon format. It worked great, all of the menu's that I want in the top ribbon are created and functional.
My ribbon displays on start up of the app but the built in 'File', Home and Add-Ins tabs are the first one's displayed left to right. My tabs are displayed to the right of those.
Question: How do I suppress those built in tabs from showing. As a rule in our development, we always take the standard menu's away from the user and only give them the options we want them to be able to use. In the 2003 version of access we did this by populating the Menu Bat and Shortcut Menu Bar properties on all forms, with our menu's. How is this accomplished in 2013?
How can I get the menu I created in IDBE to display in development mode. I don't see it anywhere but IDBE inserted it as the startup menu. Do I have to execute one of the routines in the modules that IDBE generated?
