I downloaded some code demonstrating how to create custom menus and menu buttons for Access 2007. I'm receiving the user-defined error message. Checking solutions, most talk about a broken reference to DAO. I tried to reference DAO 3.6 but it said there was a conflict. See the code below.

It breaks on "Public objRibbon As IRibbonUI"
'declaration
Public objRibbon As IRibbonUI
 
Public Sub OnRibbonLoad(objRib As IRibbonUI)
 
Set objRibbon = objRib
 
End Sub
 
'our callback for the SampleButton
Public Sub OnButtonPress(ctl As IRibbonControl)
 
If (ctl.ID = "SampleButton") Then
 
MsgBox ("You have just executed the OnButtonPress callback when clicking" _
& vbCrLf & "the Ribbon SampleButton!")
 
End If
 
End Sub

It is in a regular module, named modTestRibbon, and shows up with all the other modules in the navigation pane under modules. The code shown is the only code in the module.

I tried this before your answer, and it worked, but your suggestion was spot on. Thanks.
