What host application do you mean?
Here I show how to do it for MS Excel step-by-step.

1. Create new add-in (File|New|Other -> Add-in Express 2.0 -> MS Office COM Add-in)
2. Add the TadxCommandBar component to AddInModule
3. Enter "Worksheet Menu Bar" to the CommandBarName property
4. Add a new popup to the Controls property
5. Enter 30002 to the OfficeID property (30002 is ID of the File submenu)
6. Add a new button to the Controls property of the added popup
7. Compile and register the project.
8. Run Excel.

If you're working with Outlook, here's another useful link:

This article includes a VBA macro you run in Excel to generate a spreadsheet of all Outlook CommandBar IDs.

We have created a small scanner that can work with all MS Office host applications (except MapPoint because it doesn't have the CommandBars collection).

Link to download:

NOTE! Scanned host application must be run before scaning.
To scan Outlook Inspector command bars and controls you should open a corresponding inspector window.
