Hide All Access Toolbars And Menubars

Nov 22, 2005

The below code will hide ALL menu bars and ALL tool bars. Ensure that you have a way to unhide the menu bars and tool bars before you hide them! You should place the hide all tool bars routine in your opening splash screen form for it only needs to be run once when the db is first opened.

This will hide all menu bars and tool bars
Dim i As Integer
For i = 1 To CommandBars.Count
CommandBars(i).Enabled = False
Next i

This will unhide all menu bars and tool bars
Dim i As Integer
For i = 1 To CommandBars.Count
CommandBars(i).Enabled = True
Next i

An added bonus is the right-click mouse button option is disabled if the menu bars are disabled with the above code.

Use the 'ShowToolbar' command if you need to display a tool bar or menu bar...
DoCmd.ShowToolbar "YourToolBarNameHere", acToolbarYes

This will hide a tool bar or menu bar when needed...
DoCmd.ShowToolbar "YourToolBarNameHere", acToolbarNo

This will hide the menu bar...
DoCmd.ShowToolbar "Menu Bar", acToolbarNo

You can also hide/unhide the database window with code...

Hide the database window
DoCmd.SelectObject acTable, , True
DoCmd.RunCommand acCmdWindowHide

Unhide the database window
DoCmd.SelectObject acTable, , True

Remove the "Type a question for help" on the default menu bar in Access 2002 or 2003
Application.CommandBars.DisableAskAQuestionDropdow n = True

This command will prevent the db from opening up a separate window tab on the Taskbar
Application.SetOption "ShowWindowsinTaskbar", False

The above commands have been successfully tested with Access 97 and Access 2003.

Open Password Protected Access 2007 Db In ASP

Feb 11, 2008

Hi, I have been opening password protected access 2003 databases with ASP / ADO for years now. However now we have updated to office 2007 everything gone bottoms up.

I have an access 2007 database (newly made, not converted from 2003), and a fresh asp page. I've gotten the new connection string information for Access 2007 from the internet yet the page cannot open the database.

connection string being used:

sConnString="Provider=Microsoft.ace.OLEDB.12.0;Data Source=" & strPath & ";Jet OLEDB:Database PASSWORD= password"

When I try to open the page the error i get is - "Not a valid password" - 80040e4d. I'm 100% sure the password is correct, the driver is right (the server has office 2007 installed, and the new access driver from the M$ website). Every page i've seen on the internet says that the code I'm using is correct, yet asp still can't open it.

If i remove the password from the database it opens fine, so it's not a corrupt database, or bad path in the code.

If you can shed any light on my problem I would be eternally grateful - been working on it for hours now!

Many thanks

How To Open Access 2007 From Visual Basic Program

Nov 22, 2014

I have a fully operational Visual Basic program that uses MS Office XP and it's related MS Access. Because of security concerns, I recently upgraded to MS Office 2007 and MS Access 2007. I can open MS Access 2007 using the shortcut on the desktop and run any of the database queries. When I try to run the Visual Basic program (called prjPathfinder) and open Access 2007, it says "Error 5: The type initializer for prjPathfinder.Upgrade Support threw an exception". It then shows the first form in prjPathfinder but does not open Access 2007. What am I missing?

Access 2003 To Access 2007 Split Database

Mar 8, 2007

Hi All,

Background Info: I developed our main department's Access 2003 split database which is on a server for 15+ Users. I've now been given Access 2007 for development -- Users still have 2003. There are also 2 other smaller databases that are not split (.mdb).

Problem: In the split database, I've saved the Application .mdb as 2003, relinked and made a new .mde. But the Users still cannot open the database. (I did this in a copy until I figure out the nuances with 2007.) The 2 other unsplit databases can be saved as 2003 version and Users can open OK.

I'm grateful for any suggestions on working with Access 2007. I've been trying to tackle the ribbon which is a whole other question.

Extension For Access 2007 Database.

Aug 21, 2006

Greeting All,
I am trying the beta version of Access 2007 and realize that when converting Access 97 to Access 2007, the new db in Access 2007 has an extension of .accdb. I rename the db file name to xxxxx.mdb and the VB app fails to recognize it.

Is there any way to convert the xxxx.accdb (Access 2007 beta) to xxxx.mdb so that I can try my app against the Access 2007 db?????

Thank you for your time,

Database Crash With Access 2007

Feb 29, 2008

I have built a database with Access 2007, and intend on sharing the database amongst two users.

I am running Vista, and the two PC's or on a peer to peer network. Both with Vista.

I have split the database, and put separate copies of the front end on each of the PC's.

The backend of the database is on the public drive on my PC.

Access opens and functions correctly on both PC's with 1 User logged in.

However, if both users are logged in, my collegues PC crashes when it tries to open forms. This does not happen on my PC.

Does anyone have any ideas on what I need to change. Thanks in advance.

Taking Ownership Of Database-Access 2007

Dec 12, 2007

Just upgraded to Acccess 2007 and have ownership problem extracting queries from a 2002 db.

When trying to import into a new 2007 or export from the 2002, get "you have no permission" message

Have created a new user tried to change owner of the db, but no permission
File security looks correct in that I am owner of the file with full permissions, but Access doesn't recognize me as the owner

Tried logging in as admin, but it isn't the owner either

This is not critical, just very time consuming, this is a test project, but it would be nice not to have to rewrite about 30-40 queries and equivalent forms

Any guidence appreciated

Creating Access 2007 Database Question

Dec 18, 2007

I am not sure where to post this question. I remember finding a forum just for Microsoft Access 2007 questions, but I couldn't find it again... Indifferent

Anyway, I have created a database, and have been testing it with my application. I have some data in this database. I was wondering if there was a way in Microsoft Access 2007 to create an empty copy of the database for release. In other words, I would like to create a copy of the database with all of the tables and columns, but without the data (rows) that I had entered as part of using my testing database...

Does anyone know if I can do this?

If anyone knows where this Access 2007 forum is, or resources that might answer my question, please let me know, as I would greatly appreciate that.

Thanks Again,

Access 2007 / Moving Database To Another Computer?

Nov 18, 2011

I'm using Access 2007 which I built a database that runs queries off of tables using ODBC. The database is all done in ms access, I've used no visual basic programing on it. I'm now trying to move a copy of the database to another computer's local drive in the office. When we try to open it on the other computer it gives me an error that says "There was a problem sending the command to the program" and Access hangs, which I then have to run task manager to end the program.

Specs Are: Windows 7 64bit (the db was created on Windows 7 32bit)

Microsoft Access Version 2007

Access 2007 Backup Menu Won't Back Up My Database

Jan 23, 2008

I'm using Access 2007, with what I think is a normal database that I've built up over the past month (maybe 15 tables, <1000 records, 20 queries, 4 or 5 reports and macros). I'm not an experienced Access programmer, so I don't think I'm doing anything fancy with security settings or any other such stuff. (If I have, it's surely by accident, not by intent.)

When I try to back up the db using the simple office button -> manage -> backup method, access generates a date-stamped backup filename and opens a file save dialog for me, but it ALWAYS fails to backup the database. I always get the same error message when I click save, whether I save on my machine, or on a network drive.

"Could not use '<path to the current database dir><backname>.accdb; file already in use."

This same error occurs when I create a new blank database with a single Table1 in it, so I don't think it's my database.

Does anyone have any idea why this might be happening? I scoured the net for help, but nothing. I checked various Access forums, but nothing. So I arrive here after I've done my homework... thanks

Disappearing Data In Split Database - Access 2007

Jul 30, 2012

I work with an Access 2007 database that I split into a front end and back end. The back end holds all of the tables and the front end holds the queries, forms and reports. It is also a multi-user database, in that we have 14 people having access to the same back end. Each of the 14 people have their own front end. I have one main table in the back end listing clients and their individual ID numbers. That table has a One to Many relationship with several other tables, such as Case Notes and Authorizations, to name a couple.

Here's one of my problems: Sometimes data that is entered by a user will disappear.

Example 1: User creates a new record in the Authorizations form. Sometimes it is created by duplicating an existing record, sometimes it is completely new. User then prints a report from that new record, which looks like it has been saved. A couple minutes later, or a couple hours later, or maybe even the next day, user goes back into the database and cannot find the record that was previously created. At that time I look in the back end and cannot find the record either.

Example 2: User creates a new record in the Case Notes form on Day 1. These are always completely new records. User returns to the database on Day 2 and the new record sometimes does not show up in the form or in the back end table.

I cannot MAKE these things happen and they are sporadic, which makes it hard to diagnose, but why this was happening or if there was a way to retrieve the lost data.

All Menus & Toolbars Missing In Access

I started access today and all my icons and menus are gone from the interface. I am forced to right click on all my queries and tables to perform any action. All I have at the top of my window is the usual "Microsoft Access" caption. Absolutely nothing else. Other than that, Access is fully functional provided I can use the right click commands. Has anyone encountered this? Help!

"how to COMPACT the DB by introducing delay of 10 seconds and then close the DB".In the Database, I'm able to accomplish the "Compact" the database using the function below.

Function Compact()
SendKeys "%(FMC)", False

General :: Error 3343 - Unrecognized Database Format (Access 2007)

Aug 19, 2015

I have a standard shared Access DB application (i.e. central BE on the network, multiple users running their own copy of the FE on their local machine) Has been in production for a while, no major issues.

New user has been added in recent weeks. My error logger has picked up an error he hit earlier today - doesn't appear to have been fatal (he hasn't come to me with a problem, suggesting he just "OK"d the error prompt and continued on - I need to confirm this with him though...)

Error was 3343 "Unrecognized database format 'C:TempMyDBMyDB.accde'."

Can see it was tripped on a particular form which queries certain data into a subform (so he was obviously able to open the FE and connect to the BE fine; it was several steps down the road where the error has occurred).
