Assigning VBA Macros to Quick Access Toolbar Buttons
Typically, a VBA macro is assigned to a shortcut key. In legacy versions of
Excel, it was easy to customize the menu system to add commands to invoke
macros. Excel 2013 offers a weak interface for adding custom macros to the
QAT. In the Excel Options dialog is a drop-down called Macros. If you select
this group, you see all public macros in all open workbooks. You can select
a macro and click Add to add that macro to the QAT.
Initially, every macro added to the Quick Access Toolbar gets an identical
flowchart icon. However, you can select an icon in the Customize Quick Ac-
cess Toolbar list box and click the Modify button. The Modify Button dia-
log that appears enables you to choose from 55 available icons for a macro
as shown in Figure 3.24 . Most of these buttons are similar to icons that are
already popular. For example, the Print icon is fairly well known and has a
meaning. In addition to choosing from the 55 icons, you can type any text for a
display name. The display name does not appear next to the button. However,
if you hover your mouse over the icon on the QAT, you can see the display
name in a tooltip.
