Adding ADXCommandBarControl to Excel 2007 'Cell" CommandBar

Within Excel 2003 and earlier, the "Cell" command bar is the right-click context menu. Adding controls to this works fine, as any normal command bar.

However, within Excel 2007, any attempt to access the "Cell" command bar throws an exception, resulting in an ugly ADXError message. Now I can just handle this with a try-catch, but I thought I'de let you guys know about it, incase you missed it. You did such a nice job seperating toolbars and Ribbons between the versions, I dont see why this toolbar isnt handled the same way???

Now onto my main question... if the "Cell" toolbar isnt the right-click context menu in Excel 2007 anymore... what is the new one and how do I access it???

Hi Tyson.

I have just added my custom button to the Cell toolbar in Excel 2007. It works fine. You can send me your project if you wish. I will test it.
