  • Goto the Navigiation Pane. Right-click on the panes title area and goto Navigiation Options. Check Show System Objects. Now you should see a table named USysRibbons.

  • Well, can you purge the database and put on OneDrive?

  • although this string is marked as answered I will add my 2 cents.  In my experience a custom ribbon does not have a good cost/benefit.  Which is to say it takes a lot more development time.  It is typically far more efficient, development time-wise, to hide the regular ribbon altogether - and then put the features you seek to be available into the user interface - i.e. forms using command buttons to print, etc. 

    I realize this may not be true if there are many forms involved or some features - but in general I have found this to be true.

  • Ok, it's a menubar, part of the start form: mmenubalk. It's a legacy.

    You should switch to ribbons. Cause menubars are no longer supported.
