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

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:

Excellent ribbon info on the that site ... most complete anywhere.

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