have you tried recording a macro of you clikcing to make it visible?  if the macro turns up emtpy, its probably going to take an API call or something heavy duty to do this with VB....

if the macro truns up some code.. then you can use that codein your VBA

I got it to show like this by just sending the keystrokes:

Sub Macro1()
'
' send Alt A Y 2
'
Application.SendKeys "%ay2"

'
End Sub

Open in new window

Tx. Are you by any change able to interact with the add-in in any way - eg expand the selection or run a query?

Unfortunately not... I think that's the best you're going to get at this stage.
