Where to find default ribbon XML
Apply a Custom Ribbon to a Form or Report
The Ribbon uses text-based, declarative XML markup that simplifies creating and customizing the Ribbon. With a few lines of XML, you can create just the right interface for the user. Access provides tremendous flexibility in customizing the Ribbon UI. Learn how to display a custom ribbon when a particular form or report is opened.
I followed the steps at the below address yet the ribbon still does not hide. Is there a secret to this? I'm not much of an XML person so I may be doing something wrong. I copy and pasted the XML code and everything
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
Customize the Ribbon
The Ribbon - the strip across the top of the program window that contains groups of commands - is a component of the new Microsoft Office Fluent user interface. The Office Fluent user interface provides a single home for commands in Microsoft Office Access 2007 and is the primary replacement for the menus and toolbars in earlier versions of Access.

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
Customize the Ribbon in Microsoft Access 2007
The Ribbon is a new element of the Microsoft Office Fluent user interface. It's new in Microsoft Office 2007 and is a strip across the top of the program containing the commands. It replaced the old menu in the earlier versions of Microsoft Office. As you work with Access 2007 and begin to build applications that are more advanced, you might want to start customizing the ribbon in order to make your work easier. You can hide some commands, create new tabs containing only the commands you want to use. In Microsoft Office Access 2007, the ribbon can be customized by creating customization XML and then adding code or setting database properties that instruct Access to use that XML when it creates the Ribbon. XML can be used to hide or create new tabs, commands or command groups. This tutorial shows the user how to add commands that are built-in to Access (i.e.: Find, Sort, Save) and how to add commands that run Access macros that the users wrote themselves.
Apply a Custom Ribbon When Starting Access
The Ribbon uses text-based, declarative XML markup that simplifies creating and customizing the Ribbon. With a few lines of XML, you can create just the right interface for the user. Access provides tremendous flexibility in customizing the Ribbon UI. For example, customization markup can be stored in a table, embedded in a VBA procedure, stored in another Access database, or linked to from an Excel worksheet. This topic discusses how to apply customized ribbons when opening a database. Learn how to display a custom ribbon when Access starts.
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?
Adding Tabs and Controls to the Office Fluent Ribbon in Access 2007
Microsoft Office Access 2007 offers the ability to customize the Ribbon in your application. The Ribbon provides a new user model for exposing commands, and it provides easier, more discoverable navigation. You can create a custom Ribbon for an Office Access 2007 database by using only Ribbon extensibility markup XML and macros.
Hide the Ribbon When Access Starts
By default, Microsoft Office Access 2007 does not provide a method for hiding the Ribbon. This topic describes how to load a customized ribbon that hides all of the built-in tabs. Learn how to hide the Ribbon when opening a database.
Ribbons XML code to long for one text field
Im working on a .adp and I have alot of menus that need to be converted from access 2000. The problem is that the XML code for all my menus will not fit into the text field for the ribbon that will be loaded on start-up. I'm hoping that there is a way to break up the code into multiple ribbons(i.e. multiple rows in my RibbonXML table) and have them all loaded on start-up. Keep in mind that I am not using UsysRibbons because I cannot have the ribbons locally, it is all stored on sql server. The ribbon is selected under "Access Options-->Current Database-->Ribbon and Toolbar Option".
I have read a lot about this, but I'm very new to Access 2007 and custom ribbons and am having a really hard time figuring this out. I want to be able change the default ribbon depending on certain things.
So I started by creating a UsysRibbons table. The table has two records. One with a RibbonName of AdminTab and another with a RibbonName of AllUserTab. I want to programmatically display one or the other of the ribbons. I cannot simply change the form properties because I have way too many forms to do that. I need to be able to change the default ribbon.
So for example, code that would run when the database opens would say:
If certaincondition = True then
What code do I put here to display the ribbon named AdminTab? Else
What code do I put here to display the ribbon named AllUsersTab? end if
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
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.
Locking down the ribbon
I have a database I created (Access 2007), and I'm trying to lock down the ribbon. Specifically, I'd like to remove the Database Tools tab entirely, and certain groups in the External Data tab (I'm thinking I can do this by setting the visible property to false in XML) [In my opinion, these should not even be available in MDE files].
While I can find the MSO IDs of the individual buttons, I seem to be at a loss when searching for the MSO ID of the various groups and various tabs.
Therefore, I was wondering if anyone knew what Microsoft is calling their tabs, and how I can reference the specific groups in each tab.
XML data and Access
Microsoft Access provides ways to both import and export XML data as well as transform the data to and from other formats using XML related files.

Select Ribbon Name/Ribbon Name Property
I know there is VBA to load a ribbon in to the database but is there actual code to set the ribbon or code that corresponds to Access Options --> Current Database --->Ribbon and Toolbar Options --> Ribbon Name?
Using XML namespaces to your advantage in Access
Namespaces provide context for the data in your XML documents. By using namespaces in the XML documents created from your Access data, you can use the same documents for multiple purposes, thus increasing the versatility of your applications.

I have been using Utter Access; apparently their website is down. I downloaded a on-line public Ribbon sample db from them, incorporated only the ribbon table and module from that db into my testing db.
I would like to delete one of the Info buttons from the tab and and add an Export to Excel function button. I have read several articles ref creating Ribbons; however, it is hard to find an individual whom is good at editing ribbons.
From this site, if I send the script for the one ribbon table with the module, I am in a crunch in getting this done appropriately.
XML for the uninitiated
You may have heard of Extensible Markup Language (XML), and you may have heard many reasons why your organization should use it. But what is XML, exactly? This article explains the basics of XML - what it is and how it works. After reading this article, you should have the tools that you need to converse intelligently with an XML expert, such as someone from your IT department.
getEnabled for Ribbon part II
Ok the solution is working fine if you have only one tab in your ribbon. I have 3 tabs and I need to disable 3 buttons on second tab. Calling GetEnabled at logon to application never receives control.ID of the second and the third tab. I was looking for some event for tab change on the ribbon to run the Invalidate but can't find any way to do it.
