Renaming Nave Pane Category Groups in Code

I have a FE that I distribute to use on multiple projects. Previously there were multiple copies all with differenct names. I now get the name of the project from the BE and display it instead of having to manually change the name fo the app for every copy distributed.

But the Nav pane uses Groups and the Category needs to reflect the project name.

I can manually rename the Category in Navigation options but I'd rather use code at startup to rename it from a record in the BE.

So how can I manipulate the Nave Pane Category Name using VBA?
