    I have a database with several hundred companies that I have been using for
    quite a while with no problems.
    I recently put it on the shared network so my entire department can use it.
    So far so good. All the features on the application work.
    However I built a custom help menu for the new users with numerous help
    files. This all works great when I log on however when other users log on
    they do not see the custom help menu just the standard Microsoft one.
    What did I miss here?

    Thank you for your help RVF

    Did you create a totally new menu or did you modify a built in one? New
    menus and toolbars are part of the file. Customizations to built in menus
    and toolbars affect your PC only (and appear in all files).

    I edited some of the items on the existing menu and then added some new items.
    Please explain the difference between new or existing menu?

    "New" means that you create a totally new menu or toolbar that previously did
    not exist. When you open the Customize tool for command bars there is a button
    at the very top labeled "New...". If you did not use that to create a *new*
    menu then it is not part of your file and will not be usable anywhere but on
    your own PC.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
