hi i would like all the code for EXCEL VBA (office 2003) - Windows 2003 to create a right mouse click menu activation event to add to my automated excel spreadsheet. I want to add this so that i can add selections to this menu that will activate other functions.

Excel already has a right mouse click menu on the worksheet. What you can do is add options to that menu.
Here's a sample code to add 3 more options that will open 3 userforms.

Sub AlterWorkSheetPopup2()
    Dim oCtrl As Object
    Dim arr1 As Variant, arr2 As Variant
    arr1 = Array("Click Here", "Click Now", "Click Next") 'Button names
    arr2 = Array("UsrfrmShow", "UsrfrmShow", "UsrfrmShow") 'Macro Names
    With Application.CommandBars("Cell")
        'Add a new menu
        For i = 0 To UBound(arr1)
            With .Controls.Add(msoControlButton)
                .Caption = arr1(i)
                .OnAction = arr2(i)
            End With
        Next i
    End With
End Sub

This sample code add options to the right click menu that will fire macros.

Sub AddItemsToRightClickMenu()
Dim myBar As Object, newItem As Object

Set newItem = CommandBars("Cell").Controls.Add(Type:=msoControlButton)
With newItem
    .BeginGroup = True
    .Caption = "My Macro Button 1"
    .FaceId = 49
    .OnAction = "PERSONAL.XLS!MyMacro1"
End With

Set newItem = CommandBars("Cell").Controls.Add(Type:=msoControlButton)
With newItem
    .Caption = "My Macro Button 2"
    .FaceId = 50
    .OnAction = "PERSONAL.XLS!MyMacro2"
End With

' Add more items here...

End Sub
