    I initially posted this query some time ago and downwitchyobadself kindly gave me some advice (many thanks). Due to unforseen circumstances I have not had chance to look at the problem since. Anyway, I'm back - and still with the problem!

    The original problem was... "Converted an app from 95 to 97 but now faced with a CommandBar/Menubar (?) on top of my forms which I do not want. Does anybody know how to remove this? In design or form view, the option to remove this by using Toolbars/Customise etc does nothing. "

    To which downwitchyobadself replied.... "Are you talking about the thing that's right under the label saying "This is the command bar..."? With just the resize and close buttons on it? Just asking because that's a title bar, not a command bar. Which changes what you have to do: open the form in question in design view. Make sure the form properties window is visible. Find a property called Border Style, and set it to none."

    Ok. Since then I have had a look again, changed the border property and nothing happens. And yes, I am talking about the thing that's right under the label in the attached .bmp saying "This is the command bar..."

    I have attched the bitmap again showing the CommandBar/Menubar/Title bar I'm trying to remove.

    Any help greatly appreciated.

    Just a thought - How is the form called up?

    Is it possible that it's being called by a macro or event procedure in which the borderstyle is also set? This might override the property sheet settings. DWYBS would probably know if this is possible.
