I am trying to develop a ribbon and whilst some success with various GUI tools my access DB and clean access DB's will not display a test Ribbon for some reason

As I say I have created a blank database with the following ribbon defined in USYSRIBBONS

Access 2007 SP1  - Vista 32 SP1

Havent got other machines to test as I am onsite today

Amended Database Options and selected this ribbon

When I load the database it does not display

I have been creating the Ribbons in Ribbon Customizer by claton hendricks

Please advise

As a side issue is there a better customiser - I saw a really good customiser for Word but not Access 2007

Thanks in advance

Paul

Hi Paul

I think your Ribbon XML has two groups both named skips. Try to rename them, so they are unique. Also I am usure what the line
<tab idMso="TabHomeAccess" visible="false"/>
is for, maybe leave it out.

I use the excellent Ribbon Creater from Gunter Avenius, found at:

http://www.ribboncreator.de/en/index.php

The shareware version is restricted to two tabs, three groups and ten controls. Full version is US$23.50

I have modified your ribbon code in the Ribbon Creater (see code). It uses VBA code modules to handle the ribbon events...
