    Custom context menu limit - only one ??

    Hi,

    I have created 3 custom context menu, for different subforms, however It seems that only one can work. Is there a limit in Access for that, or is my code wrong ?

    Here is my code ( for one of the menus, all other are basically the same):



    This code is in a module
    Code:
    Sub CreateContextMenu1()
    
        Dim cmbRightClick1 As CommandBar
        Dim cmbButton1 As CommandBarButton
        Dim cmbButton2 As CommandBarButton
        Dim MenuName As String
    
        MenuName = "ContextMenu1"
    
        ' I also tried deleting other commandbars first, but not working
        'On Error Resume Next
        'CommandBars("ContextMenu2").Delete
        'CommandBars(#ContextMenu3").Delete
    
        Set cmbRightClick1 = Application.CommandBars.Add(MenuName1, msoBarPopup, False, True)
    
        Set cmbButton1 = cmbRightClick1.Controls.Add(msoControlButton, , , , True)
             cmbButton1.Caption = "Import"
             cmbButton1.OnAction = "Import_All"
     
        Set cmbButton2 = cmbRightClick1.Controls.Add(msoControlButton, , , , True)
             cmbButton2 = "Export"
             cmbButton2.OnAction = "Exprot_All"
       
        Set cmbButton1 = Nothing
        Set cmbButton2 = Nothing
        Set cmbrightClick1 = Nothing
    
    End Sub
    And this is in a Form_Load event
    Code:
    Private Sub Form_Load()
    
    On Error Resume Next
    
    Call CreateContextMenu1
    
    End Sub
    References are set to Microsoft Office 14.0 Object library. All context menu are set to subforms controls - via property Shorcut Menu bar, after 1st time running of codes as instructed by Microsoft.


    Any help much appreciated !!!

    Solved, finally :

    Code:
    Sub CreateContextMenu1()
    
        Dim cmbRightClick1 As CommandBar
        Dim cmbButton1 As CommandBarButton
        Dim cmbButton2 As CommandBarButton
        Dim MenuName As String
    
        MenuName = "ContextMenu1"
    
      On Error Resume Next  Application.CommandBars(MenuName1).Delete
      Application.CommandBars(MenuName2).Delete
      Application.CommandBars(MenuName3).Delete
      On Error GoTo 0
    
    
        Set cmbRightClick1 = Application.CommandBars.Add(MenuName1, msoBarPopup, False, True)
    
        Set cmbButton1 = cmbRightClick1.Controls.Add(msoControlButton, , , , True)
             cmbButton1.Caption = "Import"
             cmbButton1.OnAction = "Import_All"
     
        Set cmbButton2 = cmbRightClick1.Controls.Add(msoControlButton, , , , True)
             cmbButton2 = "Export"
             cmbButton2.OnAction = "Exprot_All"
       
        Set cmbButton1 = Nothing
        Set cmbButton2 = Nothing
        Set cmbrightClick1 = Nothing
    
    End Sub
    I just had to delete all context menu when clicking on other subforms, while DB allready opened.
