I remember seeing a company that made this add-in for Office, but I can't seem to find it now.

Every version of Excel can open Excel files created in older versions of Excel; you don't need any other software for that. The same applies to Word, Access, PowerPoint & Outlook.

Thanks, but I am looking for information about the number of menu commands that the company had to create to work with Excel.

Presumably, then, you're referring to an addin; that would have to be re-written to work as desired with the Ribbon. There are also addins available that give the same kinds of toolbars, etc., that Office 2003 & earlier had, but I would recommend against using any of those; the old toolbars, etc. aren't coming back and you should by now have learnt to use the Ribbon.

Thanks, but I won't be using them, just asking them a question. I had a question on how many menus they had to create to match.

All custom toolbars & commands of old workbooks created in Excel 2002/2003 will appear after opening in Excel 2007+ in the Ribbon's Add-In tab, just find it in that place
