    Hi all,

    I want to remove the background of the Access application with all the
    menus, menubar etc. and have the main starting form and the other forms
    (when opened) float on the desktop.

    Is this possible? If yes, how do I do it?

    Thanks for answers.

    It's cumbersome to do and limits the functionality of your application,
    because all forms must be PopUp and Modal. Showing reports in print
    preview is also very tricky, IIRC. This link shows you how to do it:

    http://www.mvps.org/access/api/api0019.htm
    API: Manipulate Access Window

    Note that, although that article only says that the forms must be PopUp,
    that's out of date; in more recent versions of Windows the forms must
    be both PopUp and Modal.

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!
