This example searches the command bar named "Custom2" for a control with an Id value of 23. If such a control is found and the index number of the control is greater than 5, the control will be positioned as the first control on the command bar.

Set myBar = CommandBars("Custom2") 
Set ctrl1 = myBar.FindControl(Id:=23) 
If ctrl1.Index > 5 Then 
    ctrl1.Move before:=1 
End If
