Excel 2010 :: Right Click Formatting Context Menu?
Jun 26, 2014
In Excel 2010 onwards (probably 2007 as well) there are two right click context menus that pop up on a cells.
The "Cell" command bar and also a smaller formatting bar.
What is this bar called and if you remove it how do you get it back when you have removed all the standard bars.
The above doesn't seem to get back the formatting bar. I did managed to get it back but through luck rather than judgement. Just through looping through every commadbar and printing it to the immediate window.
I've added the name of the context menu to each commadbar but the formatting one does not get a name put at the bottom of it. I've looked on this site and it doesn't seem to say anything about this new menu.
I'm using Excel 2003 and am unable to find the name of, and therefore customise, the right-click shortcut menu that pops up when you right-click on a line drawn from the 'Drawing" toolbar. Basically, I'm trying to do some technical analysis on a chart. I want to be able to right-click on the lines that I draw on the chart and replicate a parallel line.
Is it possible to modify the context menu for a chart? I want to create a menu option that runs a macro. I've found code that modifies the context menu for cells, but I haven't had any luck with charts.
I have added items to my "Cell" context menu but was wondering if there is a way to move one of the items to the Filter submenu. Below is the code I am using to customize the context menuI want to move the "Filter Status" item to the filter submenu.
Dim ContextMenu As CommandBar Dim ContextMenu2 As CommandBar
'This is for the normal view right click menu Set ContextMenu = Application.CommandBars("cell")
My fill down menu does not pop up once I click and drag down over several cells. I have checked my options, under advanced, and it is checked .
I can use the right click and fill down and THAT menu pops up, but I will want the regular left click menu to pop up as I am accustomed to using it. I am thinking it's a keyboard shortcut that I may have inadvertently clicked to disable it.
I have a validation drop down menu with the 12 months in it on Sheet 1. User picks the current month from the drop down list. I have 12 macros in the workbook, one for each month. Based on what month the user selects from the drop down, I would like to run a specific macro. The macro hides specific columns on sheet 2 of the workbook.
for example...user picks May from drop down which triggers macro MAY to run. If user picks Jun next month, macro JUN will run.
We just upgraded our machines to Excel 2010 and now I'm having an issue with copying forumlas down. In Excel 2007 (and 03) if you double clicked in the bottom right corner of a cell, Excel would autofill your formula (or data set) down until the last row of data in your range. Have tried all the settings in 2010 and can't get it to work. All I'm able to do is do a manual copy/paste or highlight all the cells and select fill down.
Using Excel 2010, I set up a simple workbook with a spreadsheet on one page and the ranges for data validation on another. I successfully linked the fields in the "Category" and "Tender" columns with the data on the second sheet, making nice drop down menus. Everything works fine on my computer. However, when we open the workbook on a different station, the drop down menus disappear. If you highlight any of the "Category" or "Tender" fields, the little drop down prompt is missing; they behave like regular, un-formatted fields. It appears that the data validation became un-linked.
We tried opening versions with certain fields locked (Mainly the Total, Breakdown, and Summary areas, but the fields with data validation were still editable), and also completely unlocked documents. Every time, the drop down lists were lost when opened on different stations.
I've attached the completely unlocked version : 00_FLEX TRAVEL EXPENSE REPORT_v3.xlsx
Forget to check a box or something? This seems way harder for me to figure out that it should be!
Hope this is fairly easy to solve. I have Screen #1 with a listbox with a CLICK event. The event populates a combobox below (with items based on listbox's selection). Listbox is NOT multi-select. Code runs fine manually, i.e., user opens screen selects from listbox, then can select from combobox.
I now what to open and make selections from another form/screen, Screen #2. I've written code to select the proper item from Screen #2's listbox but this does NOT trigger the listbox's CLICK event for me so the combobox isn't populated so I can then make that selection from Screen #1, also. I've tried setting focus to listbox first, then making selection, but that doesn't work.
QUESTION: Is there code that selects from a listbox in a way that mimics the user clicking the selected item in the listbox?
The alternatives I can think of are: 1) Change Screen #2's listbox code from CLICK to CHANGE event, but I'd rather not. 2) Move CLICK event code to sub-procedure and then call from both listbox CLICK and Screen #2 code 3) Some sendkey string like ENTER?
Would be easier to just mimic the user click, if possible.

I am currently using a pop up calendar in Excel 2010 that with CTL+SHIFT+B that a calendar pops up, you select your date, and then the calendar closes. What I now need is to write a code or formula or something that when I click in any cell in column F lets say that the calendar opens automatically in that cell and then still close automatically after the date selection is made.
Just recently My Excel 2010 has decided to not let me right click to format cells, delete or insert rows. I can do these functions from the ribbon, but not via right click. this happens in both existing spreadsheets where I am the author, or even a brand new spreadsheet like in the image below. we have restarted the computer, Uninstall and reinstalled Office and still get same symptoms. I got here thru google but cannot find an answer anywhere.
I am very computer literate and even our IT personnel have looked at this with no answer. as you can see in the image, these options are greyed out.
Excel 2010, Win 7. I have attached a .xlsm file to an email. The contained macros run perfectly, and one of them is "public" so it shows up in "Developer - Macros", and "Customize Quick Access Toolbar" lists.
If the recipient clicks and drags the attachment to a folder, or copy/pastes the attachment, it works fine. (Macros are enabled, etc.)
However, if the recipient right clicks on the email attachment, and selects "SAVE AS" from the item list, the file saves, has the right name and extension, looks ok (the icon has the exclamation point, etc), and it is the correct size, but it simply will not load. You can double click, do a file open, etc. but it will not load. It's a hidden workbook, but if you "open it" and Alt-F11 to show the VBA editor, it isn't there!
It's not stopping the project - we simply tell them to click/drag, etc. but I totally do NOT understand why that happens.
I keep getting an automation error in excel 2010 when I click on the button that executes the macro. Excel crashes when the box appears. There is no code in the error box. Why I get this error message.
I have been modifying the options available on my right click menu, getting rid of about half of what was there and adding items I use quite often like Paste Values, Paste Formats, Paste Formulas, Sort..., AutoSum, and Format as Percent, as well as adding group dividers. I have it just the way I want it, but I have one issue. If the clipboard is empty, all of the paste buttons are disabled on the Standard toolbar and in the Edit menu as are the Paste and Paste Special... items on the right click menu, but the new paste items I added to my right click menu are still enabled. If I click on one, I get a "PasteSpecial method of Range class failed" error because I have no range selected. I got around this by adding On Error Resume Next to the macros of my added paste functions - not elegant, but functional. Is there a way to have those items appear grayed out and disabled on my right click menu when the clipboard is empty as opposed to my current workaround?
Question regarding the disabling of right mouse button click options and have used the code below to disable and reciprocal code to enable options. The code works well in Excel 2003 but have recently used the spreadsheet in excel 2000 and the code causes a runtime error 5 'Invalid procedure call or argument'. how to amend the code to have it also work with Excel 2000.
Is it possible to create a menu that could be called by a double click which would allow you to click on a value from that menu and insert it into the double clicked cell. I know I could use a data validation list, but that is tacky and you have to scroll down the list to find the data you would like. I'd like to have a menu pop up that stores different values in 6 columns and 25 rows. Any way without having to jump into an access database?
I've run into this really strange problem with my right click menu (popup command bar) The UF that handles the cb is loaded at workook open event and it's modal* When first right click, the commandbar is invisible, but it's there. Only shadow seems, and when click on arrow, starts showing menu. I could say that something like repaint needed. If i click on anything, next time it popups normally !!
The problem does not occur if: 1) i load the uf manually 2)* display the UF modeless
Right click menus are a well known topic but I am struggling to find information on what I want to do with them. I have seen it done so I know its possible. What I want to do is completely replace the right click menu with my own custom one on a worksheet.
I do NOT want to add things to the existing right click menu I want to effectivly disable the existing one and put on my very own one in its place. I have looked at the code for adding a menu to a textbox etc which seems sound but I can't trigger it with an event. I don't have any code to show Im afraid as I am just playing with other people at the moment trying to get it to work.
I used the commandBar to create a right-click menu on a userForm but unfortunately I get an error 400 every time I click on the option "Edit" and I don't understand what I did wrong.
