Developer Tab disappeared from Access 2007 ribbon

Medium Priority
Last Modified: 2012-05-06
For some unknown reason the developer tab (used to launch the package wizard) has disappeared from the ribbon. Uninstall/Re-install of developer extension does not help. Only workaround for now is to run on the package wizard on a separate machine.
- Where should I look to find the ribbon configuration
- Alternatively can I launch the package wizard manually (i.e. like in 2003)

You can "lose" this in several ways (for example, switching between versions of Access, for some unknown reason). To re-enable it:

Click Office Button > Access Options > Add-ins > Manage: COM Add-ins > Go... > Check Microsoft Office Access Developer Extensions COM Add-in > Ok > Close Access Options
