I have an Access 2013 database in which I am trying to hide the Ribbon. I have tried both DoCmd.ShowToolbar "Ribbon", acToolbarNo, and creating a custom Ribbon (using the USysRibbons table) and referring to that in File, Options, Current Database, Ribbon Name.
While this all works, there is still a few seconds where the full Ribbon is visible upon startup - we do not want to see it at all. Is there any way around this?
We have secured the database by doing the following:
o Hiding the Ribbon (VBA Code)
o Replace the Ribbon (VBA Code, Access Options, Current Database, USysRibbons table)
o Hiding the status bar (VBA Code)
o Replacing the right-click menu with a custom menu (VBA Code & Access Options, Current Database)
o Disabled the shift key (Bypass Key) so there is no access to the database window. (VBA Code)
o VBA code is password protected. (VBA Properties)
o Not displaying the Navigation Pane (Access Options, Current Database)
o Not allowing full menus (Access Options, Current Database)
o Not allowing default Shortcut menus (Access Options, Current Database)
