Actually, in the downloaded accdb, the two forms in discussion DO open in the Backstage. I also see no reason to do that, but it can be done by creating a custom ribbon.

Inasmuchas the Backstage is where you find things like "Options" and "Account" in a non-customized accdb, it could make some sense to put application-level information there, although most of us would probably not think to do that.

No, you are correct as far as I can see.

The Navigation Pane does appear in the user interface and can be used to set up a simple "menu".

The Backstage is exactly where you put the two forms in your custom ribbon, as shown in the screenshots on my other post.

While it's not a typical approach, as we all agree, it's certainly doable and it does have its own logic as I said elsewhere.

Perhaps I'm being slightly pedantic here. The two forms can be opened from the backstage but aren't actually part of it.
Instead they are acting like popup forms 'floating above the backstage'.

If its a result you want, that's fine but I can't see it being something I'll use myself.

Actually, it's good to be precise. They are opened from the Backstage, not part of it.

So, is Backstage just another name for NavigationPane?

No. It’s the new name given for the area shown when you click the File menu

friends.

allow themselves to be called that.
Here, in Brazil, there are ways to interact colloquially that diverge from you.
I know some countries of the English language, but I do not live day by day with them.
exist:
customs, habits, slang and others that interfere.
I ... I'm just another access lover, who throughout my life (53 years), who knew and loved.
I saw many of the programmers here not hear the "end" of the tip. ie the user.
I work in the medical expertise business (I'm a doctor here) and saw an opportunity to add $ and product.
There are only 2 software here, which forgive me the "owners" are ridiculous. Not to say a bad word.
I decided to study and add value to what I do through the absence of adequate tools.

good...
As a doctor I don't see why I don't use this area.

however as I said I have no familiarity with the "middle programmer".

I am sorry for my english.
After all ... I think in Portuguese and I try to write in English.

however...
I accept suggestions and I will never, ever go against a "thing" that the programming profession recommends not doing.

I apologize to everyone for any inconvenience you may have caused.

Hi Dale
You win!. I've only been using it for around 22 years
See Start Backstage with the File tab
It doesn't mention Access for some reason!
Also see Backstage View in Access

That explains it Colin.

I don't have 365 installed on any of my computers yet. I do have several clients running it, but rarely use the File option on the ribbon, so have not noticed it yet.

Hi Dale
Backstage view has been around since A2007 though I'm not sure it was originally called that.

As for 365, I'm tempted go say you're not missing much of any consequence.
Although I do have that in both 32-bit & 64-bit, I still use A2010 as my version of choice.

It's been Backstage since it was introduced, I think. However, it's not discussed a great deal with regard to user experiences because it's essentially a management tool for developers (setting options, designating account information, etc.)

I liked 2010 a lot, but I'm really pretty comfortable with 2019/O365 too, so far as the environment itself. On the other hand, newer versions come with built-in adventures, so to speak. ohyeah.gif
