Custom Tab in Ribbon - How to attach to one particular file?

Custom Tab in Ribbon - How to attach to one particular file?

Custom Tab in Ribbon - How to attach to one particular file?

(OP)
I searched but didn't find this referenced to Excel 2010 or greater. I'm using Excel 2013.

I have a file that contains a table of items that I sort and manipulate and apply formatting and so forth using macros. I wanted to add those macros to a custom Tab, so I did. Problem is that Custom Tab shows up whenever I open Excel now, rather than just being attached to that one file (which is what I want).

How do I set up a custom Tab that only opens when I open the file that contains the source VBA?

Thanks!!

RE: Custom Tab in Ribbon - How to attach to one particular file?

Since you "have a file {...} using macros", you may as well add a little code to add your Tab to your Ribbon just for that file, and not the others:

CODE

Option Explicit

Private Sub Workbook_Open()
    AddMyTabToRibbon
End Sub

Sub AddMyTabToRibbon()
'Some code here to do that

End Sub 

Have fun.

And more to remove it when you close.
