Access 2010 Custom Ribbon Not Displaying

Posted on 2016-09-28

I've created a custom ribbon using RibbonCreator2010 and added it to my database. When I open the database, the custom ribbon does not display. If I click on Save Database As and then hit Cancel, the ribbon changes to my custom one. If I close the database and re-open then it shows the default ribbon again.

I have checked that the Ribbon Name is set under Options->Current Database.
Under Options->Client Settings->General, I have checked "Show add-in user interface errors" and there are none being reported.

How do I get the custom ribbon to display automatically?

Are you sure you have all the Modules generated by RibbonCreator in your db ?

It is my understanding that it creates 3 Modules:
  • basGDIPlus
  • basRibbonCallbacks
  • basRibbonGlobals

All 3 of these are present.

The SampleRibbon1.accdb database from the website works with no issues.

Standby ... I'm looking a couple of my dbs.
In the sample db ... see if you have matched all the settings in options under Current Database

Figured it out. My database has a startup form and I was using the shift key to load it without the form running. Turns out that opening the database in development mode disables custom ribbons as well as startup forms/macros.

Thanks for the help.

Don't know why you would have. I've been scouring the web for 2 hours and never saw anyone mention that.

Still ... I should have ask if you were holding down shift key, because all things being equal - which they appeared to be ... that is about the only thing that would result in this behavior.
Anyway ...
