MS Access 2016 - Prevent Printing from Datasheet view

Greetings.. . .

I have a unique challenge, my Client has a security issue. He does not want the user to print or export data from his database as it can lead to Fraud. What he requires is that the PRINT option on the Datasheet view must Blocked/Deactivated. Can anyone advise if this is possible?

Even if you could, the user could still easily make a screenshot.

So either the user has access to the data or hasn't.

I agree with Gus.  There is no way to prevent misuse of the data.  Once someone has access to the data, you can't stop them from using it for other purposes. However, I understand the need to make it as difficult as possible to get large quantities of data.

If you deliver the app as an .accde and rename it to .accdr, you can remove all the built in menus and ribbons and supply your own.  Your ribbons do not have to include a print function.
