There can be various reasons.

 

1. Ribbon Creator can only process XML files generated by Ribbon Creator.

  • Ribbon Creator uses pre-fixes to display controls.

      btn = Button
      tgb = ToggleButton
      lbl = Label
      cbx = Checkbox
      ddc = DropdownControl
      sep = Separator
      ebx = EditBox
      gbt = ButtonGroups
      mnu = Menu
      sbt = SplitButton
      gal = Gallery
      cmb = ComboBox

  • The "Tag" attribute is used to load information (user-defined pictures, defaults).
  • There are "<- Comments lines ->" used to finish controls / control groups which have to remain present.


2. Ribbon XML must be well-formed. (Try to open the file using Internet Explorer.)

With version 1.1016 of the RibbonCreator the module "basRibbonCallbacks" was adapted, and in the Ribbon XML the callbacks "getEnabled" and "getVisible" were added.

  • Either follow the steps as described in FAQ Point 5 or
  • Replace in your module "basRibbonCallbacks" the functions "GetEnabled" and "GetVisible" by the following functions:
    Public Sub GetEnabled(control As IRibbonControl, ByRef enabled)
        ' Callbackname in XML File "getEnabled"
       
        ' To set the property "enabled" to a Ribbon Control
        ' For further information see: http://www.accessribbon.de/en/index.php?Downloads:12
        Select Case control.ID
            'Case "ID_XMLRibbControl"
            '    enabled = bolEnabled
            Case Else
                enabled = True
        End Select
    End Sub
  
    Public Sub GetVisible(control As IRibbonControl, ByRef visible)
        ' Callbackname in XML File "getVisible"
       
        ' To set the property "visible" to a Ribbon Control
        ' For further information see: http://www.accessribbon.de/en/index.php?Downloads:12
        Select Case control.ID
            'Case "ID_XMLRibbControl"
            '    visible = bolVisible
            Case Else
                visible = True
        End Select
    End Sub

1. The database in that you want to export must not start an autoexec macro.

2. Don’t open/save databases from mapped drives.

3. The database in that you want to export must not be secured by an ".mdw" access workgroup file.
    See also: Using RibbonCreator with secured MDB files

4. The database in which should be exported must not be password protected.

5. The database in which should be exported must not have a start-up form.

6. In rare cases it may help to start the RibbonCreator with administrative rights (Context Menu --> "Run as ..." --> "The following user" --> Administrator)

7. Run "Microsoft Office Diagnostics"

    Office Button / Button "Access Options" / Resources / Button "Diagnose"

8. If in additional to Access 2007 Access 2007 Runtime is installed:

   a) Uninstall Access 2007 Runtime.

   b) Install Ribbon Creator.

   c) Reinstall Access 2007 Runtime



9. If next to Access 2007 other Access versions are installed:

   It is recommended not to install other Office (Access) versions in addition to Access 2007 on the same machine.

   The best choice for development with Access 2007 is:

   a) Create a virtual machine e.g.:(Microsoft Virtual PC 2007)

   b) Install operating system (Windows XP or Vista)

   c) Install .Net 2.0 Framework (.net Framework download site)

   d) Install MS Office 2007.

   e) Update your virtual machine using Microsoft Update .

   f) Install RibbonCreator and other required tools.

   Use the snapshot function provided by the VM to save the state between steps mentioned above.
