    PlaceBar (2000)

    As the Placebar is no longer available, does anyone have the old beta version to send to me?
    best program I ever found for Office, such a shame you can't even buy it, let alone get it for free!

    Hi nightsneak,

    You can still get it for free along with WOPR 2000 with <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.wopr.com/office2000/placebar.htm>"Using Microsoft Office 2000, Special Edition"</A>.

    (Which is well worth the mere $30 or so! <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>)

    However in the interim, here are a couple of utilities that allow you to customize the places bar:

    COM Add-In Version from MS: (I haven't tested it yet):

    **GeoffW - Hyperlink Added**

    Well, I FINALLY got the MS one to load right. I won't go into that story, but it appears that MS is in the process of changing their knowedge base, so here is the correct link to their placebar option. It also does not extract like it is supposed to, and I had to play with things to get it to load. Be sure to read the readme.doc!

    I also could not get the other one to load, although it seems to have downloaded correctly, it tells me that my macro security settings are set too high, and I don't care to lower them.

    Thanks for your replies. I can't live without this program *G*

    My link1 for Romke Soldaat's program is <A target="_blank" HREF=http://http://forums.compuserve.com/gvforums/default.asp?SRV=MSOfficeForum&SEC=7&FID=3676>http://http://forums.compuserve.com/gvforu...&SEC=7&FID=3676</A> which may be the same as was provided earlier. You may have some problems with CompuServe if you ever had a CompuServe account and allowed it to lapse.

    An alternative link is <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.msofficepro.com/features/2000/07/vba200007hk_f/vba200007hk_f.asp>http://www.msofficepro.com/features/2000/0...a200007hk_f.asp</A> which is to the OfficeVBA article and download. Note that this is a subscription-only site but you can get free access for 30 days (or more) by asking them to send you a free sample issue. This isn't one of those things where you have to provide credit card information and you don't have to cancel. If you don't actually pay them, they just don't send you any more issues and eventually pull your access to the site. (I found it so useful that I did subscribe.)
