Supposing you have created a VBA script named MyMacro in your Excel, and now you need to add this function to the context menu for running the code just by clicking it. Please do as follows.

1. Press the Alt + F11 keys simultaneously to open the Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications window.

2. In the Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications window, double click ThisWorkbook in the left Project pane. And then copy and paste the below VBA code into the ThisWorkbook (Code) window.

VBA code: Add custom button to the context menu in Excel

Private Sub Workbook_Deactivate()
    On Error Resume Next
        With Application
            .CommandBars("Cell").Controls("MyMacro").Delete
        End With
    On Error GoTo 0
End Sub

Private Sub Workbook_SheetBeforeRightClick(ByVal Sh As Object, ByVal Target As Range, Cancel As Boolean)
    Dim cmdBtn As CommandBarButton
    On Error Resume Next
        With Application
            .CommandBars("Cell").Controls("MyMacro").Delete
            Set cmdBtn = .CommandBars("Cell").Controls.Add(Temporary:=True)
        End With

        With cmdBtn
           .Caption = "MyMacro"
           .Style = msoButtonCaption
           .OnAction = "MyMacro"
        End With
    On Error GoTo 0
End Sub

Note: In the code, please replace all “MyMacro” with the Macro name you have created in your Excel.

3. Press the Alt + Q keys to exit the Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications window.

Now you return to the Excel interface, after right-clicking on a cell, you will see the new button with the specified name is added into the right-clicking menu as below screenshot shown. Click the button will trigger the corresponding Macro immediately.

    Thanks
    Does that working for all workbooks even after restarting Excel, or only for the selected workbook which saved the macro in?

    Add VBA button to context menu works well. Thanks. How do I add more buttons ? (not good at VBA, hence the question).

      The following VBA code can help you solve the problem, please have a try.

      Private Sub Workbook_Deactivate()
      Dim xArrB As Variant
      Dim xFNum As Integer
      Dim xStr As String
      On Error Resume Next
      With Application
      xArrB = Array("MyMacro01", "MyMacro02", "MyMacro03")
      For xFNum = 0 To UBound(xArrB)
      xStr = xArrB(xFNum)
      .CommandBars("Cell").Controls(xStr).Delete
      Next xFNum
      End With
      On Error GoTo 0
      End Sub

      Private Sub Workbook_SheetBeforeRightClick(ByVal Sh As Object, ByVal Target As Range, Cancel As Boolean)
      Dim cmdBtn As CommandBarButton
      Dim xArrB As Variant
      Dim xFNum As Integer
      Dim xStr As String
      On Error Resume Next
      xArrB = Array("MyMacro01", "MyMacro02", "MyMacro03")
      For xFNum = 0 To UBound(xArrB)
      xStr = xArrB(xFNum)
      With Application

      Set cmdBtn = .CommandBars("Cell").Controls.Add(Temporary:=True)
      End With

        This doesn't work for me, I have done exactly the same as the above macro with only one menu, Does it work for anyone else or am I doing something wrong?

        Thanks
