I have a macro that creates a custom button on the toolbar. I want it to be automatically assigned to another macro.  Here's the code:

Dim msoButton As CommandBarButton

Set msoButton=Application.CommandBars("standard").Controls.
Add(msoControlButton, 2950, , 4)
   
I tried:

msoButton.OnAction = call print_claim
msoButton.Execute = print_claim
etc
etc

Nothing works.  Please help?

leekk,

This example adds a command bar control to the command bar named "Custom" and sets the macro named "MySub" to run whenever the button is clicked.

Set myBar = .CommandBars("Custom")
Set myControl = myBar.Controls _
    .Add(Type:=msocontrolButton)
With myControl
    .FaceId = 2
    .OnAction = "MySub"
End With
myBar.Visible = True


looks like for your macro the syntax should be:

           msoButton.OnAction = "print_claim"

that should do the trick for you. If not, let me know what happens.
