When I try to load up excel, the menu bar with file edit does not show on top of the screen.
I have tried to right click on the toolbar, go to the customers and check to see if the spreadsheet checkbox is checked but to no avail.
I am wondering what the problem might be.
CONTROL BAR NOT APPEARING WHEN LOADING UP EXCEL
I believe I will be able to help you find a solution to the problem since it has been experienced before and fixed, although you need to specify which version of Ms Office you are using. The cause of the problem might be probably that it has been coded out using VBA.
What you need to do in this case is to check whether the Minimize, Restore, Close window is there, if they are, then you may click on Restore window to return to a normal windows view or click on the Close Window to the full screen box and it should restore to its original state to display the menu bar which wasn't visible.
If this doesn't work, these are the steps you are going to take;
Still on the Ms Excel window, press and hold ALT+F11. This will open the Visual Basic Editor.
In the menus at the top of the Visual Basic Editor, click on Insert > Module.
Copy and paste the following code to the clipboard;
Application.CommandBars ("worksheet menu bar").Enabled = True
Paste the macro into the white editing area.
The menu bar should appear at the top of the screen.
I hope this solves your query.
