I have created an RTD Server in VB.NET which is working great in Excel. However, I would like to create some helper functions that would be called from a menu item added to via an XLA. The helper functions would do things like show an about box, refresh some reference data used by the RTD server, etc. How can I make expose these functions so they can interact with the instance of the RTDServer class that is created by the RTD function in Excel?

Hi Cary.

To access the RTDServer class from a menu item you need to develop a COM add-in instead of an Excel add-in (XLA).
You can download an example using the following link:
