    caculator (2003 sp2)

    I would like to place the caculator on the tool bar of excel and even MS Work.
    I know how to get to C:WINDOWSSYSTEM32calc.exe, I can have a shortcut on the desk top, I do not like the clutter.
    I tried placeing the access inside a quick start folder and changing the name to (7 Caculator), ;but I know someone out there is smart enouth to teach or show me how to have it as a tool bar option? Thank you <img src=/S/bow.gif border=0 alt=bow width=15 height=15>

    I have to ask: why would you want to open the calculator when you are in Excel, which is pretty good at calculations!?

    Actually I was in MS work when I wanted to open the Caculator, but I like neat, so if I do something special to one of my tool bars I normally do the same in another?

    You would need a macro that uses something like:
    <code>Shell "C:WINDOWSSYSTEM32calc.exe", vbMaximizedFocus</code>
    then assign that to a toolbar button. I don't know if it works the same way in Works as I've never used it.
