    Quick Access Bar & Macros (Word 2007)

    We have a special setup in Word where the templates are on the c: directory in two sub folders. One folder called "AddIns" is set as the startup folder, the other "templates" is the template folder. I have set the file locations in Word to - Startup = AddIns folder, Templates = Templates folder. I have a global_template in the AddIns folder which has macro's in it. When I start word and attempt to put buttons onto my Quick Access Toolbar, the macros are not showing. This word setup cannot be changed (e.g. the location of the files). All other code, quick parts, building blocks etc work.

    Does anyone know what is wrong here.

    Open the template and change the Quick Access tool bar from there. The changes should show up in your documents. That is how I was able to add macros to my QA tool bar.

    Thank you Pam. Does the toolbar update every time you open a document based on that template or do I have to go to each PC, open up the template and then put the buttons on the Quick Access Toolbar - I have at least 20 PC's to do.

    On my home office computer (the only place I currently use Office 2007), it works just like the tool bars showing up in 2003. I'm not sure that I understand your file structure and pointers, so I can't say it will work the same for you. But I'd guess that if your users can see on their Ad-Ins ribbon the macros and tool bar icons from the templates in your Addins folder, then, yes, it'll work.

    BTW, I suggested an add-on template because that's where I keep my macros and too bars. But you could also put it in your version of Normal.dot().
