You can use the AppTitle property to specify the text that appears in the application database's title bar. For example, you can use the AppTitle property to specify that the string "Inventory Control" appear in the title bar of your Inventory Control database application.


The AppTitle property is a string expression containing the text to appear in the title bar.

The easiest way to set this property is by using the Application Title option in the Access Options dialog box, available by clicking the click the Microsoft Office ButtonFile menu button and then clicking the Current Database category. You can also set this property by using a macro or Visual Basic .

To set the AppTitle property by using a macro or Visual Basic, you must first either set the property in the Access Options dialog box once or create the property in the following ways:

  • In a Microsoft Access database, you can add it by using the CreateProperty method and append it to the Properties collection of the Database object.

  • In a Microsoft Access project (.adp), you can add it to the AccessObjectProperties collection of the CurrentProject object by using the Add method.

You must also use the RefreshTitleBar method to make any changes visible immediately.


If this property isn't set, the string "Microsoft Access" appears in the title bar.

This property's setting takes effect immediately after setting the property in code (as long as the code includes the RefreshTitleBar method) or closing the Access Options dialog box.
