A menu is created in two steps. First, you add a menu button to your form. This is the same procedure that you use to add a command button. Then, you open the Menu Designer for the menu button and create the menu items.
To add a menu button
Open the form in the Form Designer.
Open the Toolbox and select the Menu Button tool.
Select the menu button and open the Properties window (SHIFT+F4) for the menu button. Because a menu button does not have a relationship to data—field or variable—the Name and Caption properties are set to default values (such as Control7). Change the caption to the appropriate text. If the text contains an ampersand (&),the letter following the ampersand is used as an access key.
