Hello there,

Sorry, there is no way to do this. If you did so programmatically (as is generally recommended) it will add another tab labeled Addins and put a little icon there with your menu. Customizing the Ribbon is much more intense and cannot be done with VBA alone (technically you can, but it is such a PITA you don't want to go there). You need to write some XML and is best used wtih VSTO (Visual Studio Tools for Office). In fact, there is a book called VSTO for Mere Mortals which is for people going from VBA to VisualBasic.NET.
