Excel How To

Adding a menu item to EXCEL programmatically by taupirho
Posted: 29 Jun 04 (Edited 19 May 05)

Here's how to add a new menu item to EXCEL using VBA. The code below will create a new menu item labelled 'TEST' to the right of the current right-most item (normally the Help menu)

First of all delete the menu item if it already exists so we don't keep adding the same menu item on time after time.

For Each con In Application.CommandBars(1).Controls
    If con.Caption = "TEST" Then
    End If

'Now add the new menu item:

    With Application.CommandBars(1).Controls.Add(msoControlPopup)
        .Caption = "TEST"
        .OnAction = 'msgbox("You pressed the TEST menu item")"
    End With
