You can set this property by using the form's property sheet , a macro , or Visual Basic .

It can only be set in form Design view.

Remarks

Setting the ControlBox property to No suppresses the Control menu when you:

  • Open the form in Form view from the Database window.
  • Open the form from a macro.
  • Open the form from Visual Basic.
  • Open the form in Datasheet view.
  • Switch to Form or Datasheet view from Design view.
