    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    that's out of date; in more recent versions of Windows the forms must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.
