Hi Experts

I have a spreadhsheet which I have created a custom ribbon tab - using the custom UI editor, I have disabled all other ribbon tabs, but the file tab  is still present and active - im guessing this is mandatory - is there a way I can use VBA or the custom UI to edit what commands are in the file tab, I dont want the save or open command avaiable.

You are correct.  The FILE tab is like the old Office button.

However, Ron's got some good times to handle exactly what you need, re: backstage:

Thanks,

I have 'pinched'  some of the backstage code XML however I dont know where to put it on my exsisting code - the below isnt working

<customUI onLoad="RibbonOnLoad"  xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/office/2006/01/customui">

  <ribbon startFromScratch="true">
    <tabs>
      <backstage>
                         <button idMso="FileSave" visible="false"/>
                 </backstage>

      <tab id="MyCustomTab" label="Investec Nav" insertAfterMso="TabHome" getVisible="GetVisible" tag="rNAV">
                        
          <group id="customGroup1" label="Tracker">
          <button id="customButton1" label="Add/Update Fund Benchmark" size="large" onAction="psLoadBenchMark" imageMso="AdpDiagramIndexesKeys" />            
        </group>

      </tab>
    </tabs>
  </ribbon>

Upload your workbook, non-sensitive data, of course.  All I need is your workbook with code and I can help more effectively.

Here's your XML with the menu item you want, and also the backstage with no file open or save options - I included all the backstage with true/false settings, rather than just omitting those we don't want to deal with.

I took out the GetVisible syntax, so we can focus on what your original question was addressing, and that would require me to add a bunch of code, so trying to stay in scope with your request.  Next time, it would be useful for you to provide a template of your workbook with the code you already have to work with and thanks for that!

Also, note, I used the Excel 2010 schema, as your question appeared to be focused on that, though your schema was for 2007.  Also, note, the BackStage view is only for Excel 2010.

<customUI onLoad="RibbonOnLoad" xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/office/2009/07/customui">
<ribbon startFromScratch="true">
	<tabs>		
		<tab id="MyCustomTab" label="Investec Nav" insertAfterMso="TabHome">		
		
			<group id="customGroup1" label="Tracker">		
				<button id="customButton1" label="Add/Update Fund Benchmark" onAction="plsLoadBenchmark" imageMso="AdpDiagramIndexesKeys" size= "large"/>	
			</group>		
		
		</tab>		
	</tabs>		
</ribbon>
    <backstage>	
        <button idMso="FileSave" visible="false"/>	
        <button idMso="FileSaveAs" visible="false"/>	
        <button idMso="FileOpen" visible="false"/>	
        <button idMso="FileClose" visible="true"/>	
        <button idMso="ApplicationOptionsDialog" visible="true"/>	
        <button idMso="FileExit" visible="true"/>	
        <tab idMso="TabInfo" visible="true"/>	
        <tab idMso="TabRecent" visible="false"/>	
        <tab idMso="TabNew" visible="true"/>	
        <tab idMso="TabPrint" visible="true"/>	
        <tab idMso="TabShare" visible="false"/>	
        <tab idMso="TabHelp" visible="true"/>	
    </backstage>	
</customUI>	

Open in new window


I've attached a same file to demonstrate it works.

Cheers,

Dave
