    Exclamation Help needed when printing - Printing always opens the Navigation Pane, How do I stop this?


    I have built a database to look after our company Customer Details and Quality Complaints.
    The database is split into Front/Back end and the FE application is distributed between users.
    It is limited on the FE application so it only allows a startup form which then drives all other forms, queries & reports.
    The Navigation Pane is hidden as default in File/Options/Current Database.
    Many of the forms/reports are printable and have a button that has been autogenerated (add button) during the design phase.
    As soon as anything is printed the Navigation Pane opens and becomes accessible for all.

    I have looked at many forums and cannot find anything that remotely associates with this problem.
    I also cannot find any VBA that will stop this happening only VBA to hide the Pane.

    Please see pictures below:

    I will appreciate any/all solutions, ideas or assistance with this issue as the last thing I want is to give basic users access to the various forms, queries and reports in the FE application.

    I know I should really be using VBA. I am relatively new and self taught in Access and only just started using VBA.
    If there is a VBA alternative then I would be very happy to know about it c",

    Well, I can't fix the macro but VBA does not open the pane.

    DoCmd.PrintOut acPrintAll
