Ribbons Redux

Jim Pilcher

This month we take another look at the Microsoft Office Ribbon object model. Jim Pilcher will show you how to use the IDE Ribbon Creator as a creative tool, but will then venture into custom hand-written ribbons. Ribbons and VBA are tightly associated in Microsoft Access.Jim will show you some common techniques to get ribbons and VBA talking to each other. Jim will also provide an impressive and daunting list of web resources that can help you become the Office UI guru you always wanted to be.
