Overriding Actions of Excel DropDown Menus and Poup Menus

    Does anyone have any idea how to override excel's (smart) menus.
    I got some ways to override some of the menus items but the technique looked
    like some sort of a workaround.
    Main problem comes when overriding smart menus that appear depending on the
    state of the sheet. e.g. 'insert copied cells' only appears in the popup
    menu when data is available in the clipboard.
    Other main problem comes in overriding menu items that are not listed in the
    active menus and then user adds it later when customizing the menus.

    any ideas?
    Regards,
