Access to Excel Custom Lists
Excel allows us to modify nearly every part of Excel. One of these parts is the standard Excel CommandBars, or Toolbars. Sometimes you may have a macro that you wish to enable users to run by right clicking in any cell and choosing your macro from the Cell shortcut pop-up menu. The code do do this is relatively simply and is shown below.
Note how the code first deletes any existing menu option called "My Macro". This stops the code adding an additional custom menu options and ensures only one custom menu option is available at any one time. The use of Temporary:=True ensures this menu option is deleted whenever Excel closes. Without it, it's possible to have you custom menu option showing in another Workbook. This is also why we make use of the Workbook_Deactivate Event. That is, if we activate another Workbook while this one is open, the custom menu option is deleted.
The macro that is run whenever this custom menu option is clicked is called "My_Macro". You should change this, and the caption, to suit your needs.
The code below should be placed in Private Module of the Workbook Object (ThisWorkbook). To get there quickly, right click on the Excel icon, top left next to File and choose View Code.
Private Sub Workbook_Deactivate() On Error Resume Next With Application .CommandBars("Cell").Controls("My Macro").Delete End With On Error GoTo 0 End Sub Private Sub Workbook_SheetBeforeRightClick(ByVal Sh As Object, ByVal Target As Range, Cancel As Boolean) Dim cBut As CommandBarButton On Error Resume Next With Application .CommandBars("Cell").Controls("My Macro").Delete Set cBut = .CommandBars("Cell").Controls.Add(Temporary:=True) End With With cBut .Caption = "My Macro" .Style = msoButtonCaption .OnAction = "My_Macro" End With On Error GoTo 0 End Sub
