    Find file with attached toolbar (Excel 2003 SP2)

    The other day my IT person called and said she had to replace my PC. I managed to move my personal.xls file to the network. But I couldn't remember right away how to save my custom toolbars. So I attached them to a file, thinking that would pull them across. Now, I can't remember which of my ten billion Excel files I attached them to. Is there a way to find the file other than opening them one at a time? Yes, it's been a long week. As always, thank you very much.

    AFAIK, not only must you open each of them up, but you must check them manually. I don't think VB has access to the Workbooks.Commandbars collection only the Application.commandbars collection. The Workbooks.Commandbars collection is only populated when the workbooks is embedded and opened within a different application [eg in WORD or Powerpoint].

    And if you have "ten billion Excel files" and it takes you just a second to open and check each one, if will take you have only 3 centuries to find it (presuming you do it 24/7). <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15>
    It may be simpler (and faster) to recreate your toolbars... <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    Would the Excel workbook still be in the list of most recently opened files in Excel?
    If not, you can use Start | Search (in Windows) to look for *.xls files that have been modified during the last two days.
