Appendix B. Tables of Tab and Group idMso Names

This appendix is divided into three main sections covering tab elements, contextual tabs, and built-in groups. The first provides a table of the idMso identifiers for the built-in tab elements that are common across all three applications.

The second section of this appendix contains lists of the idMso identifiers for each of the contextual tabs, and is broken down by specific application. It might be helpful to note that the terms may differ by application.

The third and final section holds tables of the idMso identifiers for Microsoft's builtin groups that are available in each application. These tables contain the individual group names and their default tab. This will be an invaluable reference, providing a fast and easy way to locate the idMso you need.

As an added bonus, we've included these tables in the chapter download, so that you can easily search, copy, and paste the names to avoid typos. This file (idMsoGuide_TabAndGroupElements.xlsx) can be downloaded from the book's website at www.wiley.com/go/ribbonx.

Common Tab idMso Identifiers

Table B-1 lists all of the idMso identifiers for the built-in tabs that are present in Excel, Access, and Word. The applications are listed in columns, making it easy to identify whether the tab name changes between applications.
