Customizing the Ribbon in an Access Database

If you want to add tabs, groups, or controls to the Ribbon in an Access database, you have to write XML and (optionally) VBA code — unlike customizing toolbars and menus, you can't just drag a command to a location on any toolbar or menu, as in previous versions of Access. The only manual customization available in Access 2007 is adding commands to the Quick Access Toolbar. In a major change from previous versions of Office, you can't programmatically add commands to standard Ribbon groups, or remove standard commands from groups, although you can hide tabs completely, and add new groups containing custom commands.
