Have your VBA Add-in autogenerate menus for easier access to your macros

  1. P_20160720_203804
  2. Storing your macros in add-ins (.xlam) has many advantages over personal.xlsm and similar document locations.
  3. One disadvantage however is that an Add-in macro is not accessible through the Excel macros dialogue.
  4. The community recommends assigning shortcuts for easy access. I did that and went a couple of steps further using VBE extensibility to
    1. depending on scope
      1. public procedures on your end users’ computer to whom you distribute your Add-in
      2. and also non-private on the developer  machine
    2. list your modules alphabetically
    3. list your macros alphabetically under your modules
    4. for each, find & assign a free (free within Excel only –  short of assigned windows-wide shortcuts  since in my current work environment, I am unable run tools that allow you to list these shortcuts) shortcut combination,
    5. automatically generate an Add-Ins menu of all that , to serve as a cheat sheet.
  5. Code TBA
