HOT: New Version of Classic Database MenuBar and Window for Access 2007

I have today uploaded v2.0 of this free sample Access 2007 database that gets you beyond the frustrations of the new Office Ribbon, and in v2.0, helps you learn the location of familiar commands in the unfamiliar Ribbon environment.

In version 2, I have added the full Classic MenuBar to the Ribbon Add-Ins tab. The Menubar is context-sensitive and button-clicks on commands in the Menubar as well as functioning in the normal way, also operate on the Ribbon to display the relevant Ribbon tab.

Download the Sample ACCDB file and import the two forms and one module into your Access 2007 ACCDB, after checking the Menus and Toolbars checkbox in the Import Objects dialog.

The following screen-shots show the sample ACCDB in action in Access 2007 BETA 2:
