I am modifying the "Standard " toolbar for Excel to add custom macro buttons.  If it is not visible, I want to make it visible,  which I can  do, and dock it at the top,  which I can't find a property for.  Is it posible to forcs it to dock?

Have you looked at the Position property of the CommandBar object?

Commandbar(1) gave an error.
Toolbar(1) gives no error, but still puts the bar in the middle of the screen

Well in that case we need to post:

CommandBars("Standard").Position =msoBarTop

....so that any link to this question has the correct answer.

Chrynoble,

I'm not going to sweat it either, quantz can distribute the points to whomever he believes helped him the most.

If he wanted a specific code example as opposed to checking out my doc reference, then that is fine with me.

I often post comments and provide pointers because I feel people learn better by doing to bit of research and work on their own. I don't generally don't like to give full complete code examples, but that seems to be the nature of the biz over here if you want the points. ;-)
