Hiding a Button on the menu form

Last Modified: 2017-11-21
I have created a form menu in my application which has buttons created where people are able to choose where to go , but they are created using the macro wizard not VBA.

(1) Is it possible to hide  these buttons , for example , the objective here is that there some button which are allocated to administrators, accountants , managers  and data entries clerks , I want my form to show only those buttons  relating to user rights. For example the current application does not allow anyone to use all the buttons unless one is not a data entry clerk.

(2) I was also thinking of ways of creating drop downs menus  instead of buttons is it possible in access? I do not to use access built switchboard , it is not okay for huge projects

Regards

What Access version? What project type? Cause I prefer using the Ribbon for that.

And why have you tagged your post Golang? This is the Go programming language from Google..
