What do you mean by "add a key"? Do you want to put a link to a Word document in your application? Duane Minnesota Hook'D on Access MS Access MVP 2001-2016 RE: add user manual to menu bar Lhuffst (Programmer) (OP) 21 Dec 17 20:11 Duane, I created a user manual that I would like to have on a tab on the menu bar. Right now the menu bar has File, Home, create, external data ... I'd like to add "User Manual" and when they click that tab, have the ability to open the word document. I looked at the Quick Access Toolbar but don't see an option to include a link to a document. My intent is to have the document stored in the same folder as the database so it is accessible for updates. Any help/suggestions are most appreciated. Thanks lhuffst RE: add user manual to menu bar Andrzejek (Programmer) 21 Dec 17 20:25 "have the ability to open the word document" I use this Sub to open any document with its default application: CODEPublic Sub OpenDocument(ByRef strDocPath As String) Dim G As Long G = Shell("RUNDLL32.EXE URL.DLL,FileProtocolHandler " & strDocPath, vbNormalFocus) End Sub ---- Andy There is a great need for a sarcasm font.
