Add custom button to existing group Excel 2007


V

Viresh Parmar

My employer just recently converted to Excel 2007. I'm trying to
figure out how to customize the ribbon for a few add-ins I use. I'm
using Custom UI Editor to run the XMLs to edit the ribbon.

There is one piece that I'm having trouble with - how to add icons/
buttons to an existing group. For example, I want to add 'Run Report'
button to Editing group. I use the code below, but it doesn't work.
Can someone help me figure out what is wrong with my code? Not even
sure if editing an existing default excel group is possible.

Code:
<ribbon>
<tabs>
<tab idMso="TabHome" >
<group idMso="GroupEditingExcel" >
<button id="RunRpt" label="Run Report" size="normal"
onAction="MacroRpt" imageMso="Calculator" />
</group>
</tab>
</tabs>
</ribbon>

Thanks Ron! So I guess I have to hide a group and then re-create it
with the desired changes? Doesn't seem that difficult. Thanks!
