Menu System
Description
This a data-driven, multi-level menu system that has several advantages over the MS 'Switchboard':
• sits on the left hand side, so always visible
• faster
• looks better
• data driven tooltips and open arguments
• can handle submenus within submenus (see example in the Code Download under: Services / Service Locations)

Programming Notes

Captions on Main Menu buttons are manually added (these will rarely change - so little use data-driving)
All other menu entries maintained on table: App Menus
The 'Run Code' options are coded in the Form_Sub_Menu ButtonClick function
Please do NOT leave my logo on the background form
I have left in my code for dealing with attached tables
