I am moving to Access 2019 from Access 2010. Initially I had a problem with hiding the ribbon on opening because it seems that the technique used in 2010 no longer works.
I have now successfully hidden the ribbon when opening the application by using a commend in an AutoExec macro.
That is working fine.
But now testing in more detail I have a problem with my reports. I currently have a custom tool defined for all my reports. All this does is to show the Close button and the Print dialogue button at the top.
It seems that these are no longer supported because the buttons are no longer displayed when running the application in Access 2019.
I have done some research and it looks like I will need to create a custom ribbon and call that from each Report. This requires coding in xml which I will have to mug up on because I have never done that before.
My question is - is this the way that this should be done? Any tips to make this simple?
Or is it easier to just add two separate buttons to the footer of each report (although this would be more work because each report would have to be editted.
