Access: How do I programatically create and/or add a custom ribbon menu on file open?

I'd like a custom made ribbon to be added to Access (and the others hidden) when I open a specific file. I need a few buttons on it connected to macros (or directly to VBA if possible) with names and images. The ribbon should be automatically removed when the file is closed.

Is there a tutorial about this somewhere?

TIA!

Setting a specific ribbon to show when you open a specific Access file is fairly straight forward. You just add the XML to the USysRibbons table, and select the name in the Access Options - Current Database - Ribbon and Toolbar Options.

Far more difficult is actually creating the ribbon, which can be a HUGE PITA. In my opinion, if you must create custom ribbons the tool to use is Gunter's RibbonCreator:
