Ms Access Custom Menu under Add-Ins

Hi all,

Still getting used to 2010. Does anyone know how to modify a Custom Menu from an earlier version?

I have a custom menu that shows up on the Add-Ins tab, which is OK, but I need to add a new menu item and I can't figure out how to do that.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
E

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You can't do in in A2010. No tool is available.  You will need to make the change in A2003, the convert or run inA2010.

Sad but true.

Your other option is to start using the Ribbon ... and the de-facto standard tool for creating custom ribbons is this:

Trust me ...  it's fricking maddening. Clearly, the 'old' menubars are supported ... all Microsoft had to do was make the original to AVAILABLE.  HELLO!
