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:

and:

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

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.
