    Custom menu does not display (Word 2000)

    I have created a template with a custom menu which is visible while I populate it.
    When I close the template and then re-open it, the custom menu is not visible.
    Right clicking on the toolbars and selecting Customise, displays the menu!
    Any ideas? The menu should of course be visible in the template as well as in the documents created from the template not so?
    Regards

    Have you created a custom toolbar or a custom menu bar that should replace the standard menu bar?
    A custom toolbar should be displayed automatically if it was visible when you saved the template. Do you have add-ins that might influence the behavior of toolbars? Are you using a document management system such as DocsOpen?

    It is a custome menu item (called Research) that I have added just after the Help item on the File, Edit... menu bar. There are about 7 items (that run macros from the template) that I have added.
    The custom Tool bar displays fine.

    Have you checked carefully that you have saved the custom menu in the template, not in Normal.dot? See screenshot.
