Default Navigation Pane unhides when creating liked table

I have a runtime/accde app to be distributed to users that can't have access
to the nav pane or objects, and even though I've disabled special keys,
including shift keys, and turned off the nav pane option, the nav pane
reappears during app startup. Found out using docmd.transferdatabase acLink
is the culprit.

1) does MS know about this and 2) what's the fix if I want to re-create
table connections during startup behind the scenes?

Use DAO to create the link instead of TransferDatabase.

This is indeed a bug and there's no fix for it. Other solution i heard for
this problem is to use a timer, do the action (transfer) and after the
transfer hide the navepane via code again.

It's a workaround not a solution bu maybe it points you to a tem solution.

Rick

Interesting suggestion. Can you tell me what that DAO statement/code looks
like? Does this actually work or is it just an idea? Thanks

If you want an automated DAO approach to relinking tables, you're
welcome to use our free J Street Access Relinker on our J Street
Downloads page: http://ow.ly/M56Q

It handles multiple Access back-end databases, ignores ODBC linked
tables, and can automatically and silently relink to back-end
databases in the same folder as the application (handy for work
databases or single-user scenarios). There's a ReadMe table with
instructions.
