Access: How to call VBA methods from custom ribbon?

I'm having trouble getting a custom ribbon to call methods in a module. The sample code is like this:
Option Compare Database
Option Explicit

Public globalRibbon As IRibbonUI

'Get a global reference to the ribbon object when the ribbon loads
Public Sub onRibbonLoad(ByVal ribbon As IRibbonUI)
    Set globalRibbon = ribbon
End Sub

'Open the form that is specified in the ribbon control's tag property
Public Sub ribOpenForm(control As IRibbonControl)
    DoCmd.OpenForm (control.Tag)
End Sub

Open in new window


but I can't get it to compile as neither IRibbonControl or IRibbonUI seem to be included in the Access 2016 object library. Has this changed, or do I manually need to add some reference? The compiler error is "User-defined type not specified" (for both)
TIA
Dennis

You need a reference to the Microsoft Office 16.0 Object Library.

Yes, thanks, I just found that. I didn't notice the difference to Microsoft Access 16.0 Object Library.  Guess it's time to call it a night ;-)
