Use the Load statement.

Load mnuYourMenu(n) where n is the value <> index of any mnuYourMenu created.

For ex, you can say Load mnuYourMenu(1)

Ofcourse you can change the caption of the menu as well by setting it's caption Property.

Okay, to get it more clearly try the following steps:

1. Start a fresh project (Standard EXE will do) with a form

2. Go to Menu Editor and add a menu, say with the properties Caption = &File, Name = mnuFile and Index = 0.

3. Add a command button to the Form.

4. In the click event of the command buttom add the lines of code
   Load mnuFile(1)
   mnuFile(1).Caption = "&New File"

5. Run the project and click on the Command Button.

On the first click, you will see one more menu coming up with caption New File. If you click again, you will get a run time error message saying the object already exists. That is because, the menu object mnuFile with index 1 already exists. Actually, at this point of time the menu object mnuFile with index 0 and 1 already exists. You will be able to create any more menus using mnuFile by only specifying the index > 1 now.

BTW, you can remove the menu by using Unload statement. You can try that by adding one more command button and adding the line of code Unload mnuFile(1) in it's click event.

Hope that helps, shoot if you have any more doubts.
