Similar to using ampersands in headers, you have to double them up in the Caption property of CommandBarControls (CBCs). In CBC captions, the ampersand (&) denotes the hotkey for that control. A caption like
will underline the F and make that the hotkey. If you need an ampersand in your caption, use two.
I wrote this procedure to convert captions when I read and write them.
Function HandleAmp(sInput As String, _
Optional bWrite As Boolean = True) As String
If bWrite Then
HandleAmp = Replace97(sInput, “&”, “&&”)
HandleAmp = Replace97(sInput, “&&”, “&”)
