    Reviewing Toolbar Revisited (Office 2000-2003)

    <font color=blue>I searched here for ways to stop the Reviewing Toolbar from popping up when I open a file sent to me. It looks like <post#=316593>post 316593</post#> and <post#=354707>post 354707</post#> cover the subject but in playing with the toolbar I discovered things you can do without VB code: <UL><LI>If the Reviewing Toolbar is anchored (rather than floating) the popup is transparent . If you don't mind toolbar space being taken up you are good to go. At least you don't have to deal with the @#$% toolbar getting in the way.
    <LI>If you can't spare toolbar space (most of us can't) you can modify the toolbar so that it has no buttons. Then anchor the empty toolbar at the end of another toolbar. Voila! Toolbar banished!![/list]

    Thanks for the tips!

    I assume the first one only works in Excel 2003, I don't think earlier versions had transparent toolbars.

    The second one works well if you never ever want to use the buttons from the Reviewing toolbar again. If you might occasionally need it, this would be a nuisance.

    Hans, pardon my use of the word transparent - what I meant was that the fact that the toolbar had shown itself wouldn't be obvious to the user.

    If you need to use the toolbar you can select the little arrow (the only part of the toolbar that shows) and re-select the buttons that you need. This could be a nuisance if you do it often - but then if you do it often you probably aren't that bothered by the toolbar in the first place.
