Menu Clicks in Office Apps

I thought that all my dreams had come true with COM AddIns.  I could add a menu item to the file menu, capture the click event in my DLL and process it to my hearts content.  That was, until I tried to make it work in Office 97 as well.

I need an "easy" way to add a menu item to Word/Excel/PowerPoint..., capture the click, so that I can "do something" in my external code (dll).  This needs to work the same in Office 97, 2000, 2002.  I cannot require the Office user to install/configure, etc.  I must be able to get this going via automation.

Any suggestions?
