Customise Word 365 Ribbon Tab using VBA

MonteDelMar asked
Last Modified: 2020-01-23
Hi Experts

I have a reasonable amount of experience in customising the Ribbon using the CustomUI editor and using VBA to dynamically populate menus. However, I just cannot seem to get my head around what I need to do to add a new Menu to an existing custom Tab using VBA.

I want to have a blank, already created Tab - I have already done that in the Custom UI editor.

I want to programmatically add new menu items to that Tab using VBA.

It would be useful to be able to know how to add a Tab programmatically as well but that is not essential.

Many thanks in advance for your help.
