"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Hello Alex! Generally, Addins' macros (even public ones) are not visible in a Macro window drop-down list

If you are planning to store your macros in an addin then you can call them in the following ways:

     1) Create a button on a QAT and assign it to a specific subroutine
     2) Create an object on a sheet (button, shape etc) and assign it to a specific subroutine
     3) Create a custom Ribbon button and assign its click event to calling your subroutine
     4) Call your subroutine from another external procedure, which is stored outside the addin
