Ribbon group send right
The ribbon builds itself from left to right. Is there any way to send a group to the far right? All the other group can remain as is, but I'd like 1 particular group to the right-hand side of the ribbon.

Can this be done? Is there a parameter to control this type of thing that I am not aware of?

Access 2007 - Ribbon XML
I've created a custom ribbon that has 1 group and 3 buttons, each of which calls a macro to open a form. It works fine, but I'm wondering if there's something I could add to the xml whichwould allow me to display an icon to the left of each button?

Access 2007 Ribbon
I've been looking all over MSDN and have not been able to find a simple solution to my problem. I want to be able to keep the Print Preview ribbon open when a report displays, even if the ribbon is hidden in other scenarios. This being because my users will be using developer and I don't want them having access to edit the forms. Therefore I will be hiding the ribbon, and just want the Print Preview ribbon to display when a report is opened. At the moment the user has to click on "Print Preview" in the top left corner to see the ribbon. I am trying to avoid using XML and the "USysRibbons" table

Different Ribbons at Different Times
So I was playing with how to show a different ribbon for each form, and I get that fine. The db itself has no custom ribbon, while the form does. However, what about when no forms are open? How do you hide the standard tabs? I have a blank ribbon that only hides stuff. I tried making that the db's ribbon, but it seems to override the form's ribbon

Create a custom ribbon
I'm not sure where this would go, but I am trying to work on the UI for my application, and I would like to know how to customize the ribbon.

Ideally I would be able to open reports etc from that ribbon, but I'm not sure where to start. Any ideas? Or even a blank ribbon file that I can tweak?

Filter Form doesn't close
I have an Access 2007 form with a command button that does this on the OnClick event:

DoCmd.RunCommand acCmdAdvFilterSort

The filtering form opens correctly and I'm able to specify my criteria. If I right click and choose Apply Filter/Sort, the filtering works BUT the filter form doesn't close. Instead, my Access 2007 form appears in front of it and gets the focus but the filtering form stays open.

I'm using a customized ribbon and have tried two other ways to accomplish this. The first is:

idMso = "ApplyFilter"

The second is a macro that runs a function with this code:

Ribbon Bar Question
Is it possible to disable the 'File' tab on the ribbon through code?

At the moment I have a login form set up and depending on the access rights of who logs in the whole ribbon will either show or not show.

DoCmd.ShowToolbar "Ribbon", acToolbarNo

Whilst going through some testing it has become apparant that I do need a ribbon to show whilst in report previews but I do not want the users to be able to get into the 'File' tab.

I am about to start designing a custom ribbon but going on the code above I am assumig it would not show anyway? And I think the 'File' tab will always show even on a custom ribbon?

The Ribbon
Under the title bar, Microsoft Access displays a long bar called the ribbon. This is a description of the ribbon of the Microsoft Office Access 2007 interface.

Ribbon showing with RDP Connection
I am using the following code to turn off the Ribbon and hide the Nav Bar in an Access DB.

'turn off ribbon
DoCmd.ShowToolbar "Ribbon", acToolbarNo

'turrn off nav pane
strTableName = DLookup("Name", "mSysObjects", "[Type] = 1 AND [Flags] = 0")
DoCmd.SelectObject acTable, strTableName, True
DoCmd.RunCommand acCmdWindowHide

Furthermore, under File/Options I have turned off all of the options for the Ribbon and Nav.

When accessing the Database from the server side, everything works as I would want it. There is no Ribbon or Nav Bar showing at all. However, with an RDP connection, there is still a default Ribbon.

Adding to the Access 2007 Ribbon: First Effort
I'm a veteran Access/VBA/Sql Server programmer taking my first crack at adding to the ribbon in Access 2007, I've been following the standard reference documentation from Microsoft and from a couple of books, but they are only getting me to third base.

I'm using the . I'm able to successfully load my ribbon name into the RibbonName drop-down in Access Options; I able to do the same with forms. But in no case am I able to see any changes!

Can we programmatically set the default ribbon?
I'm working with a ADP in 2007 (not an accdb) in which I've defined a new custom ribbon. ADPs do not recognise the USysRibbons table, so it is not available to select through the Access Options screen. I've used the LoadCustomUI method to load the ribbon, and I can then associate it to particular forms, but I need instead to associate it to the application default.

In other words, I need to programmatically associate my ribbon to the same default parameter that the Access Options UI uses. I'm betting this is easy, like [B]application.SetOption "Ribbon Name", "MyRibbon"[B] or something like that, but I sure can't find it
