How to Add Popup Menu Item in Excel/Word using VBA

Create Popup Menu (Right Click menu) using VBA

Here is a simple snippet that will add a menu item to the popup menu and assign a macro to it


Sub Add_To_Popup_Menu()

Dim ctlNewMenu As CommandBarControl

Dim ctlNewGroup As CommandBarControl

Dim ctlNewItem As CommandBarControl

On Error GoTo Err_Trap

On Error Resume Next


On Error GoTo 0

Set ctlNewMenu = Application.CommandBars("Cell").Controls.Add(Type:=msoControlPopup)

ctlNewMenu.Caption = APP_SHORTNAME

'--- Button - Load Raw Data ------------

Set ctlNewItem = ctlNewMenu.Controls.Add(Type:=msoControlButton)

ctlNewItem.Caption = "Process Data"

ctlNewItem.OnAction = "ProcessData"


If Err <> 0 Then


Resume Next

End If

End Sub

The above will create a new Group and add the “Process Data” control to it.
