    Disable double-click Toolbar Customize dialog box (2000 SR-1)

    I am writing a school management program using Excel 2000. In the process, I encountered some problems which I hope you can kindly help to throw some light on.

    (a) How to disable Customize dialog box from activating if one (left) double-clicks on an empty space beside the toolbar? I can only disable the Customize dialog box due to right-clicking on the toolbar using :
    CommandBars("Toolbar List").Controls("Customize...").Enabled = False
    CommandBars("Toolbar List").Enabled = False

    ([img]/forums/images/smilies/cool.gif[/img] Is there any way to modify the message appeared on a built-in dialog box? For example I want to change "Do you want to save the change you made to xxxx ?" when one closes an Excel session to a native language which is unavailable from Microsoft.

    Why is it that a Winzip-compressed protected workbook is much larger in size (triple in fact) than the same but unprotected Winzip-compressed workbook?

    Thanks in anticipation.

    I can't answer your first question, but I will take a shot at the other two:

    ([img]/forums/images/smilies/cool.gif[/img]- As far as I know, there is no way to change what appears in the built-in dialog boxes. I think your only alternative here is to build your own dialog using the Before Save event routine and User Forms.

    - The reason that the protected file is larger when compressed with Winzip is because the encryption algorythm that Excel uses to protect the workbook makes the file almost uncompressable.
