Default How to handle all delete row events in excel

I want to handle all row deletes within Excel 2003. I have no trouble
with Worksheet Menu Bar/Edit/Delete because it is always there, but
what about the context dependant items like

Worksheet Menu Bar/Edit/&Delete Ro&w and

These menu items appear in Excel when the selection is within a

If I try to point a CommandBarButton to these items, I get "The
parameter is incorrect" error, possibly because they don't exist in
the menu at the time I am trying to create the object. If so, when
can I do this?

Not within the BeforeRightClick event for the sheet ( I have tried).
I don't see an AfterRightClick event or a MouseUpEvent within the
Excel Object Model.

I've reference KB213552 List of ID numbers for built-in CommandBar
controls in Excel 2000 without luck. I tried CommandBarControl Row
CommandBarButton Delete, but this produced the "Parameter is
incorrect" error.

The following works:

Dim mainCtr As Office.CommandBar
mainCtr = DirectCast(m_xlApp.CommandBars("Worksheet Menu Bar"),
Dim ctr As Office.CommandBarPopup
ctr = DirectCast(mainCtr.Controls("Edit"), Office.CommandBarPopup)

mnuEditDelete = DirectCast(ctr.CommandBar.Controls("&Delete..."),

But this does not:
mnuEditDeleteRow = DirectCast(ctr.CommandBar.Controls("Delete Ro&w"),

As an aside, I have not had problems with KB823988 and deletion of
rows within list (entire row is selected) - for the one menu item I
am able to handle.

I appreciate any insight on this topic
