Extending Excel Context Menu

The SaveToDB add-in allows extending the Microsoft Excel context menu.

There are three available submenus:

  • Actions
  • Open URL
  • Table Views

Actions Context Menu

The Actions menu allows executing various tasks:

  • Executing stored procedures and SQL queries
  • Executing HTTP requests and opening URLs
  • Executing VBA macros

Users can customize the menu using the context menu elements of the Reports tab configuration.

Developers can customize the menu using the event handlers with the ContextMenu event type. See Developer Guide.

Below is a sample of the context menu:
