Hello,

This works in Word 2010
MyRibbon.ActivateTab("MyRibbonTab");

But I also need it to work in Word 2007.
It doesn't error out, it just doesn't work.

Please help,

Nick

Hi Nick,

It cannot work in Word 2007 because the Office 2007 ribbon doesn't support this. Workarounds are discussed at http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en/vsto/thread/d37084bf-5599-4be2-8a6e-0438bdfa5291.

Thank you Andrei, I was afraid of that.
At least I have some concrete proof of a Microsoft limitation to show my client, I thank you for that. :D

Take care,

Nick
