Resetting Dynamic Menus in Excel

If you're looking to reset your dynamic menus in Excel, there are a few things you'll need to do. First, you'll need to go to the "File" menu and select "Options." From there, select "Customize Ribbon" from the left-hand side menu. Once you're in the "Customize Ribbon" menu, uncheck the box next to "Developer." This will remove the Developer tab from your Excel ribbon, which is where the dynamic menus are located.

Next, go to the "View" tab and select "Macros." This will open up the Macro dialog box. In the Macro dialog box, select all of the macros that start with "DYNMENU_" and delete them. These are the macros that control the dynamic menus. Once they're deleted, close out of the Macro dialog box.

Now, go back to the "File" menu and select "Save As." Save your file as an .xlsm file type. This will save your file as a macro-enabled workbook, which is necessary for the dynamic menus to work properly.

Finally, go back to the Developer tab and click on the "Visual Basic" button. This will open up the Visual Basic Editor. In the Visual Basic Editor, go to File > Import File and import the DYNMENU.bas file. This file contains the code necessary for the dynamic menus to work properly. Once it's imported, close out of the Visual Basic Editor and save your workbook.

That's it! You should now have reset your dynamic menus in Excel and they should be working properly.
