How to Customize Excel menu bar at run time?

Hello all
I need to add items to excel menu bar at runtime
and to load this menu as an Addin.

I prefer to see code that create a new menu item
(like file,edit,tools etc.) and add to it items
and sub menus with connection to event handlers

Sub Auto_Open()
  Dim myBlankPop As CommandBarPopup
  Dim myBlankSubPop As CommandBarPopup
  Dim myBlankBtn As CommandBarButton

  Set myBlankPop = CommandBars("Worksheet Menu Bar").Controls.Add(msoControlPopup, , , 11, True)
  With myBlankPop
    .Caption = "Test"
    Set myBlankBtn = .Controls.Add(msoControlButton)
    With myBlankBtn
      .Style = msoButtonIconAndCaption
      .Caption = "Test Button"
      .FaceId = 480
      .OnAction = "clickBtn"
    End With
    Set myBlankBtn = Nothing
    Set myBlankSubPop = .Controls.Add(msoControlPopup)
    With myBlankSubPop
