Hide the Message Bar


I found this piece of code on the Utter Access web site. unfortunately I am unable to attribute it to a particluar person. It was designed to solver the following problem.

I am trying to find a way to disable the "This database has been opened read-only" message bar that comes up when users open my front-end application housed in SharePoint. The application is designed to be "read-only" as all of the data is linked to a backend database and the frontend is an accde file being called from a SharePoint listview. The message only confuses some of my users so I would like to disable it somehow. I can only find references to forum where people want to disable it but have data in their frontend app which is a different issue.

Solution found:

This command should be called from the Form_Current event of the splash or startup form. The read only message bar looks to be triggered when the form actually connects to the data.
