I have code that inserts a picture into the comment box of an Excel cell.  I created this for a project where I had to do a mass population of a spreadsheet.  I would now like to add it to the context menu of the comment box that appears when you do a right click on the comment box.  

So I need to know how to create this item and execute my code when its selected?

Hi,

pls try

Sub Menu_Modify()
Menu_reset
With CommandBars("Shapes")
    .Controls.Add(Type:=msoControlButton, before:=1).Caption = "&Add my Thing"
    .Controls("Add my thing").OnAction = "'" & ThisWorkbook.Name & "'!" & "myCode"
    .Controls(2).BeginGroup = True
End With

End Sub


Sub Menu_reset()
CommandBars("Shapes").Reset
End Sub

Open in new window
