My Client uses the right click option on all his forms (about 14) to bring up the popup that allows him to select a specific record.Popup.docx See attached copy of popup.docx. This popup appears if the user right clicks in a specific field.
The right click also allows the user to go into the forms design view which is a security risk. (If the right click is not on a specific field)
I have deactivated the right click option in the MS Access Option option when the 'File' option is selected and then "Current Database" and then un-click  the "Allow Default Shortcut Menus". This however deactivates the popup to do the filter bit.

Is there anyway that I can deactivate the right click mouse button, but allow the popup to do the filter bit.

Any assistance would be appreciated
