    Thanks Dreamboat,

    Still haven't relenquished the old PC to MIS so I'll get the Word and Outlook files off. Found the Excel file and IE Favorites by accident so I'm good there.

    That only leaves 2 (Powerpoint and Access) so I guess I can manually recreate.

    Thanks for your time and help.

    Start-->Run and type:

    regedit

    and hit enter.

    hkey_current-User\software\microsoft\office\foldername

    Where: foldername = application name.

    If you back up each application's folder, then get to your new PC...

    Back up these folders ALSO on the new PC. To do that, right-click the folder and hit Rename. Call them something like WordOld or OldExcel.

    Then, import the ones you exported from your old PC. You NEED normal.dot and *.xlb, but other settings are stored in the registry.

    You can try doing this, and if it doesn't work, delete the folders you imported, and then rename the other ones back the way they were.

    I BELIEVE this will get you Access and PowerPoint toolbars, but can't be sure. I've never heard this request (meaning AC & PPT toolbars) in over six years...
