Table tools add-in

Based on an idea by fellow Excel MVP Frédéric le Guen I have created a new small Excel add-in which makes your life using tables in Excel slightly easier. It sports a ribbon tab which contains a drop-down containing all tables in your worksheet so you can quickly jump to them and another one which displays all columns in the current table. Both items are also available in the cell right-click menu. The former when you right-click on a cell not in a table, the latter when you click on a cell within a table.
It also has an enhanced “Insert table” dialog which enables you to enter the name of the table and has the Headings checkbox turned on by default no matter what:
Insert table dialog

Building an Excel Add-in

Hi there!

Only recently I read this quote somewhere: “If you want something done, ask a busy person”. I found two entirely different people as the originator of this quote: Benjamin Franklin and Lucille Ball. I wonder which it is…

Well, turns out I’ve been quite busy as of late. So I decided it was time to dust off some old stuff I prepared to add to my site but never came round to finishing (I must have become less busy when I was almost done :-) ).

If you’re about to embark on the journey to create an add-in out of a set of macro’s you have been using for some time now, this article is a nice read as it takes you through most of the steps needed when building an add-in for Excel.

Enjoy!
