Where to find default ribbon XML
Does anyone know where I can find the XML for the default ribbon bar on Access? I think it would be be easier to take away certain buttons than to start from scratch.
Thank you for taking the time to report an issue.

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
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
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
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.

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.

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.

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?
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.
