What you've asked for both is and is not straight forward.

If you're customizations are appearing in the addin bar then I suspect that you have the older style menu/command-bars... the ribbons use XML and a usysribbons table... in conjunction with VBA callbacks (I think Macros too; however, I don't use macros very often; thus, I haven't added them to a ribbon call)

Here is where you should start to learn about this "feature":

From there you should get a good book on Access2010 that covers the insides and outs of the program... as you will need a good reference for the XML objects.

You might find an example helpfull:


OK... I'll be in dail-up land the next week or so... so hopefully I've given you enough to work with (read) until I can return to the "real" world! :)

zmbd, thanks for your reply. I have done all I was needed. I've customized the ribbon via xml and crate routine that picking up new menu and menu buttons from tables. So my ribbon is dynamic. It could be easily modified by adding records to a tables.

I glad to hear that you have been able to solve the problem

As customizing the ribbon is really something new for a lot of people, would you mind sharing some of the details about how you were able to do so?
