    WORD- NO TOOLBARS VISABLE (WORD 2000 SR-1)

    EU called about no visible toolbars for WORD. Had him hit ESC in case he was in full screen mode. Not the case. I searched for NORMAL.DOT and renamed it. Did not work. I was not able to test it under my profile, but I'm sure it would have worked. Is there a fix before I re-create an new Windows Profile for the person???

    Thanks

    Hi Chris:
    First, make sure the toolbars are visible by right clicking the menu bar & choosing to show one of the toolbars.

    Second, try to change the resolution of the screen (e.g. from 800*600 to 1024*768). This will help if the user has somehow placed his toolbars off the edge of the screen.

    Third, open the VBE (Alt+F11) & open the immediate window (Ctrl+G). Then type the following line & press <enter>
    ActiveDocument.CommandBars(<commandbar name>).Position=msoBarTop

    where <commandbar name> is the name of the single toolbar you want to dock.

    If none of those work, follow the steps in <post#=197827>post 197827</post#>.
    Hope this helps,

    Oh man, that's one tasty name you've got there. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Now, with respect to toolbars, this comes up several times a year, so if the above doesn't work, please try a Lounge search for more tips.

    Hiya

    this issue happened to us here...however it was only 1 toolbar the 'Standard toolbar' which wasnt visible in Word 97.
    When I right clicked in the menu area> to display the toolbar list > the standard toolbar was not in this list.
    When I went to menu View>Toolbars> = not in list, then I went to menu View>Toolbars>Customise - to hopefully reset the Standard toolbar = not in the list.
    I then went to add a new toolbar named 'Standard' >clicked ok it displayed a message 'Standard' toolbar already exists.
    created code to force to display the Standard toolbar - result: no standard toolbar displayed.

    the fix that worked for me to display the Word Standard toolbar again is:
    delete the NT & local profile

    you may want to give that a go!
    cheers Diana :-)
