Office 97: How to display Office Shortcut Bar?

I have apparently permanently closed the Office 97 Shortcut Bar.
How do I have it start up each time I reboot my computer?

All you need to do is to create a shortcut in your startup folder which points to program files\microsoft office\msoffice\osa9.exe

this is for mso2000 but you should also have a similar file called osa.exe or osa9.exe

hope this helps

Your answer made complete sense to me,
but didn't work according to what I did.
I found "osa.exe" in
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office.  It even has the
correct icon.
However, when I run it from Windows Explorer, my hard drive makes a quick sound but nothing happens.  I even
tried putting it in my startup folder and re-booting, but it does not appear when I reboot.  Any ideas?
Maybe this question is more complicated than I realized, so I increased the points from 50 to 75.
Thanks

You have to look for:

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\MSOFFICE.EXE

and put that one in the start-up folder.

Thanks, deond and calacuccia.
I looked for "msoffice.exe" on my hard drive, but it was not there.  So I copied it from a friend's harddrive.
That worked, although I was given the message "The Office Shortcut Bar is missing necessary folders.  You can use the Office Shortcut Bar, but the built-in toolbars will not be available.  Run Office Setup again to create the built-in toolbars."  I haven't used the Office Shortcut Bar in years, so probably I didn't even install it when I last installed Office, so that explains it.  Thanks for all your help!
