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

  1. Open the form in the Form Designer.

  2. Open the Toolbox and select the Menu Button tool.

  3. 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.
