Turn off Shift Bypass key in .adp

Turn off Shift Bypass key in .adp

Turn off Shift Bypass key in .adp

The following code works great in a .mdb but not for a .adp.  This is the module I use to turn the Shift Bypass key off. Does ANYONE know what I need to change to get it to work?  

Public Function SetProperties(strPropName As String, varPropType As Variant, varPropValue As Variant) As Integer

On Error GoTo Err_SetProperties

Dim db As DAO.Database, prp As DAO.Property

        Set db = CurrentDb
            db.Properties(strPropName) = varPropValue
        SetProperties = True
        Set db = Nothing
Exit Function

    If Err = 3270 Then 'Property not found
        Set prp = db.CreateProperty(strPropName, varPropType, varPropValue)
        db.Properties.Append prp
        Resume Next
        SetProperties = False
        MsgBox "SetProperties", Err.Number, Err.Description
    Resume Exit_SetProperties
End If
End Function

RE: Turn off Shift Bypass key in .adp

Good Afternoon!

Below it the title of the article that relates to the startup properties of a Project.  The article covers programming in both the *.adp and *.mdb environments.  I have used it to set a few of the properties for my applications.  Sorry, I have not used it for the ByPass key yet.
Setting Startup Options Programmatically in Access 2000

' *** Here is some of the code ***

Public Sub SetADPAppTitle()
   Dim dbs As CurrentProject
   Dim prp As ADODB.Property
   Dim strTitle As String


On Error GoTo ErrorHandler

   Set dbs = Application.CurrentProject
   strTitle = "Setting *.ADP Startup Options"

   'Try to set the property, if it fails, the property does not exist.
   dbs.Properties("AppTitle") = strTitle

' *** Here is one of the start up properties ***
   dbs.Properties("StartupShowDBWindow") = False

   'Refresh the title bar to reflect the change.
   Set dbs = Nothing
   Set prp = Nothing
   Exit Sub

      ' Create the new property.
      dbs.Properties.Add "AppTitle", strTitle
      Resume Next
      Resume ExitLine
   End If
End Sub
