Access 2010 - Access 2016 Add-Ins RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am currently using an Access 2010 application which uses the 'Add-ins' ribbon option to run

    previously created Menus based on Access 2003 and earlier 'Macros'.  My company is updating

    to Access (Office 2016) 2016.  I understand that option is no longer available.  What is the best

    way to 'migrate' - update my DB so I can either use the old menus or convert the old menus to

    Access 2016 menus??? Help please.

  • Hi Karen,

    Although I can't think of any at the moment, it's possible there are third-party utilities available to convert the old toolbars into ribbons. If not, you may have to dig in and create the custom ribbons yourself.

    Just my 2 cents..

  • Hi Karen,

    It seems that you are using a third-part application. I would suggest you connect the application's support team for help since we do not have any idea how they develop the application. Thanks for understanding.

    Best Regards,

    Terry

    As you know, Menus are end support. I would suggest you replace Menus by Ribbon on the UI, if you did not use the VBA function which is not supported on Access 2016, there is no need to change VBA code.

    For consuming Ribbon, I suggest you refer below link.

  • Karen - The best site I know for Ribbon stuff is here. The author of that site also has a ribbon creator utility at a separate site. That site also has a converter for command bars.
