    I have created a customer toolbar in Access. I have a number of other people
    who use the same database model. When I teach them how to use it, the most
    common question is can you move your toolbar to my computer.

    Can this be done?

    I am working with Acess 97 SR1

    Go to:
    File | Get External | Import

    Click the Advanced (or is it Options?) button.
    There's a check box for toolbars and menus.

    When I use
    File | Get External | Import
    On the Import dialogue box the files of type is showing Acess.
    When I click Advanced there is no place to click toolbar and or menus.
    Am I missing something.

    Also I am actually trying to copy the toolbar to take to another unconnected
    computer by disc (it shows up on the other computer that I am share a peer to
    peer network with). Are we on the right track?

    Thanks for the help!

    First off you can only exchange totally custom toolbars and menus, not
    modifications that you have done to the built in ones. To transfer a custom
    command bar you need to give the user a file that contains the command bar
    (since custom command bars are part of the file). He can then import that
    command bar from the file you give him into any other file he chooses. You
    have to press the [Options...] button in the import dialog to see the option
    for menus and toolbars.

    Changes you make to the built in command bars become part of your Access
    install (not any particular MDB file) and these are stored in the Windows
    registry. It "might" be possible to copy those to another system by copying
    the registry "branch", but I have never tried that.

    You MUST select the file you are going to import. You then get a dialog box
    with a bunch of options to import forms, reports, queires etc. Note on the
    bottom of this form there is a button called "options>>>"

    Click on the options button, and you will see a check box to import the menu
    bars...

    Hi.

    Thank you to everyone who answered my question. It took me a couple of trys
    to realize what you trying to walk me through but it worked. You have made
    some co-workers very happy.

    Thanks again.
