    I have had XL 2003 SP3 installed on my machine at work in place of XL 2000 SP3.

    Although my Personal.xls is still in XLStart, my personalised toolbars and menus have disappeared. Can I recover these or do I have to recreate them again?

    TIA

    Toolbar customizations are stored in a file with extension .xlb, usually found in C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application Data\Microsoft\Excel. You can open this file (by double-clicking it in Windows Explorer) to add the customizations to your new installation of Excel.

    Please look at my new post, 14-Apr-2009 19:30. Does your answer, here, apply to my post also? Do I just find the *.xlb file on my PC, and copy it into the appropriate folder on the LAN share drive?

    I assume that the problem has been solved in the meantime by Jan Karel's reply Post 770582.
