Thanks Crystal
(Access 2016 doesn't have the above menu options (I go via 'what do you want to do' / options))
Either ways, we definitely don't wish to switch off blocked-content warnings, just the 'save-as' bar.
The issue isn't related to blocked content, it is triggered by the read-only parameter in the command-line, and remains unless the user saves as a different file (not valid).
If the /ro is omitted from the command-line them there are no messages.

try opening the database using a shortcut icon as opposed to opening it directly

tried that - same problem - (I'm sure this worked in previous versions of Access)
even if I agree to the 'save-as', and make a new file, every time I use the command-line with '/ro' on the new file, the 'save-as' prompt returns.
thanks

Couldn't you use the runtime switch:

    /runtime

/gustav

Crystal and Gustav. I was looking for a quick way to stop people editing data. Was hoping the /r would facilitate this. Instead it stops people editing the actual design of the fe.
Not sure if the /runtime will be any different to /r.
Will close question. Thanks.

you're welcome

> "stop people editing data"
that has to actually be implemented in the code for the forms in the user interface.  Most folks do not open tables directly if there is a menu interface -- especially if you mark the tables as hidden (right-click)

Thanks.  One can also set form insert/edit/update properties to false instead of coding a solution

yes, that is true. If you set the Recordset Type on the Data tab of properties for the form is set to Snapshot, users will not be able to edit. The reason I mentioned code is because usually the same forms are used for those who can do data entry as for those who are read-only.

Generally, you do NOT want to make a form not able to be edited because this will affect the ability to edit any control, including unbound controls that are used to find records.  Better is to lock individual controls programmatically -- using code to determine privileges of the user and then looping through controls and setting the Locked property  to True (Yes) or False (No).
