Repeat Last Command
Pressing F4 adds dollar signs when editing a formula. When not editing, F4 repeats last command.

Hi,

You will need to store your macros in your Personal.xls workbook to have them available to all other workbooks. (If you don't already have one, record a macro and choose Personal.xls as the destination for saving the macro).

Then you will need to create a menu for your chosen macros. To be available every time you use Excel the menu should be created in the Workbook_Open event of the Personal.xls. Eg.<pre>Private Sub Workbook_Open()
Create_Menu.CreatePopup ' Menu item
End Sub</pre>
Then in a normal module (called Create_Menu in this example), in Personal.xls, add a menu creation routine. Eg.<pre>Sub CreatePopup()
Dim cbpop As CommandBarControl
Dim cbctl As CommandBarControl
Dim cbsub As CommandBarControl

For Each cbpop In Application.CommandBars _
("Worksheet Menu Bar").Controls
If cbpop.Caption = "&My Macros" Then End
Next

Set cbpop = Application.CommandBars("Worksheet Menu Bar"). _
Controls.Add(msoControlPopup, , , , False)
cbpop.Caption = "&My Macros"
cbpop.Visible = True

' add a menu item
Set cbctl = cbpop.Controls.Add(Type:=msoControlButton)
cbctl.Visible = True
cbctl.Style = msoButtonCaption 'required for caption
cbctl.Caption = "My first macro"
cbctl.OnAction = "FirstMacro" 'action to perform

End Sub

Sub RemovePopup()
Dim cbpop As CommandBarControl

' Removes Custom menu if temporary not set
For Each cbpop In Application.CommandBars _
("Worksheet Menu Bar").Controls
If cbpop.Caption = "&My Macros" Then cbpop.Delete
Next

End Sub</pre>

The second routine is to delete your custom menu if you wish to.

HTH

EDIT: Oops - typos!
