Ribbonx - how to create two ribbons?

Can someone tell me what I am doing that is incorrect? I can create a
single ribbon, but when I try to create two it fails.

<customUI xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/office/2006/01/
customui">

<!-- Add Custom group to the Home tab in the ribbon-->
<!-- The example add three buttons to the group and a menu button
with 5 options-->
<!-- Click on the "generate Callbacks" button in the UI editor to
create the macro(s)-->
<!-- You can copy them in a module in your workbook then and add
your code-->

<ribbon>
<tabs>
<tab id="TabBobsTools12" label="BobsTools2"
insertAfterMso="TabView">
<group id="customGroup12" label="Group 1"
insertBeforeMso="GroupEditing" >
<menu id="MyDropdownMenu12" label="My Menu2" size="large"
imageMso="TextAlignGallery" >
<button id="customButton42" label="Caption 4"
onAction="Macro4" imageMso="TextAlignGallery" />
<button id="customButton52" label="Caption 5"
onAction="Macro5" imageMso="TextAlignGallery" />
</menu>
</group>
</tab>

</tabs>
</ribbon>


<ribbon>
<tabs>
<tab id="TabBobsTools" label="BobsTools"
insertAfterMso="BobsTools2">
<menu id="MyDropdownMenu" label="My Menu" size="large"
imageMso="TextAlignGallery" >
<button id="customButton4" label="Caption 4"
onAction="Macro4" imageMso="TextAlignGallery" />
<button id="customButton5" label="Caption 5"
onAction="Macro5" imageMso="TextAlignGallery" />
</menu>
</group>
</tab>

</tabs>
</ribbon>
</customUI>

Hi be?????????????????

You can not create two ribbons.
You can create 2 or more tabs on the ribbon if you want

Do you want to create two custom tabs on the ribbon? (I have not read the xml)

Must go now but will reply this evening with a example if this is what you want.

Maybe this is what you want (Just a example)

<customUI xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/office/2006/01/customui">

<ribbon>
<tabs>

<tab id="customTab2" label="Favorite Groups 2" insertAfterMso="TabHome">

<group idMso="GroupClipboard" />
<group idMso="GroupSortFilter" />
<group idMso="GroupInsertIllustrations" />

<group id="YourCustomGroup2" label="Favorite commands">
<button idMso="VisualBasic" />
<button idMso="SheetProtect" />
<button idMso="ConvertTextToTable" />
<separator id="MySeparator2" />
<menu idMso="WindowSwitchWindowsMenuExcel" size="large" />
</group>

</tab>

<tab id="customTab1" label="Favorite Groups 1" insertAfterMso="TabHome">

<group idMso="GroupClipboard" />
<group idMso="GroupSortFilter" />
<group idMso="GroupInsertIllustrations" />

<group id="YourCustomGroup1" label="Favorite commands">
<button idMso="VisualBasic" />
<button idMso="SheetProtect" />
<button idMso="ConvertTextToTable" />
<separator id="MySeparator1" />
<menu idMso="WindowSwitchWindowsMenuExcel" size="large" />
</group>

</tab>

</tabs>
</ribbon>
</customUI>

Hi Ron

Thanks. I was able to work out adding multiple tabs by looking at the
examples on your site. I had hoped that I could create two distinct
ribbons to easily group several sets of tabs together.

Thanks
