Right click and choose images to add an imagelist for the icons.

Then open the properties pages, use Groups to set up the different sections, Items to add the clickable items.  In groups properties, use Links to map the Items to a click index link.

I used it in a VB project, dunno if there are any issues with Access.

You're welcome.  There is a sample project that shows the code for interpreting the click, basically I only had a few icons so I manually gave each item it's UserData value.  Then I used code similar to this to respond to the item click.  The UserData Value is passed to the Sub.  In my case, I just opened a few other forms so it wasn't complicated. (VB, not VBA)

Private Sub dxSideBar1_OnClickItemLink(ByVal pGroup As DXSIDEBARLibCtl.IdxGroup, ByVal pLink As DXSIDEBARLibCtl.IdxItemLink, ByVal GroupIndex As Integer, ByVal ItemLinkIndex As Integer)
    Dim mark As Variant
    Select Case pLink.Item.UserData
        '
        'Main grid
        Case 100
            fx = 0
            ShowGridByIndex (fx)
        '
        'Quick Entry Grid
        Case 101
            fx = 1
            Dim f101 As New frmQuickGrid
            f101.Show vbModal
            Unload f101
        '
        'Edit tabbed form
        Case 102
            fx = 2
            Dim f102 As New frmEdit
            f102.Show vbModal
            Unload f102
        '
    End Select
End Sub
