>Is there a way to open Word with the clipboard toolbar (or any other >toolbar) enabled? Hello Bob, Yes. In Word 2000, at least, you can go to the Tools -- Customize item, and= select the toolbar you want to be loaded by default. That's it. The next= time you open Word, that toolbar will appear again. When you use the View= menu, Word assumes you only want to view it for the current session. I don't have Office97 installed, and I don't have access at all to Office= XP, to check those versions. But I'd bet it's the same or similar.
