Access 2010 Custom Ribbon question

Hi EE
I am just learning XML to customise the Ribbon menu and having trouble getting started
Here is what I have done so far
Access 2010
Created     USysRibbons   in a Test dB
Two fields
RibbonName  text
RibbonXml      Memo      

RibbonName = Standard
RibbonXml =
<çustomUI xmlns=”http://schemas.microsoft.com/office/2009/07/cusomui”>
<ribbon startFronScratch=”true”>
</ribbon>
</customUI>

In Ribbon and Toolbar options  I selected Standard from combo box

When I open nothing happens. The article stated when start the Ribbon wont be there.

Are there any books on the subject I have done a search but can't find anything

any help appreciated

Official documentation is about nil, so the recommended place to start is here:

    http://www.accessribbon.de/en/?Links

and:

Also, if you wish to learn about the XML while you work, the MontaRibbons Tool is an option:

Thank you for that info appreciate. I have IDBE Ribbon Creater 2010. You mention MontaRibbons Tool. is one better than the other or on par

Most consider IDBE Ribbon Create for the best Tool, but some prefer MontaRibbons because of its educational capability.
I haven't used it myself, but a free trial is for download, so you could check it out yourself. Much depends on personal preferences, I guess.
