XL2K floating toolbars not showing up in XL 2007 ... (?)

I'm in a new contract and they have me playing musical chairs. I've
been assigned back and forth between 2 different cubicles and have
been given access to a laptop and then 2 computers since I'm floating
for colleagues that have gone on leave.

I now have XL 2003 on one machine and 2007 on the other. When I'm at
2003, my XL2K spreadsheets work just fine. I figured out how to save
the files so that they work at the office with either 2003/2007 and at
home with my own XL2K here.

But my floating toolbars don't work on the 2007 machine. How come? I
have several workbooks that use a floating toolbar since I start up
new sheets monthly etc. and the old system of buttons and macros would
make file get bigger exponentially after each new sheet copy was made.

The toolbar keeps the workbook small as no buttons on any of the
sheets yet it still gives me one-button access to the book's macros.
But it's not working in 2007. How can I fix this pls?

Thanks. :blush:D

Ron gave you links how to change your interface.

But if you look under the Addins tab in xl2007, you should find your toolbar.

I hope that's the case. 5 weeks later and I'm still hating 2007.
When you have customized toolbars with one-button access to
everything, the ribbon seems like an overblown, fancy piece of
garbage! And after reading up on all it would take to customize
beyond the very simplistic QAT, garbage!!! I'm guessing for licensing
issues, I'm getting the computer with Office 2003. You betcha I'm
going to be very quiet about it, and fight to keep it if they want to
"upgrade" to 2007!!! <lol>

Thanks for the tip. I'll look for my toolbar in the addins <crossing
fingers>.
