Hi TeamWe,

by accessing the applications commanbars collettion you can enable or disable particular command bars
Application.CommandBars("Standard").Enabled = False

save your document. press alt+f11, this opens the vbe window, on the left you will see the project explorer (if its not visible, hit ctrl+R).
Expand the items and browse to where it says Project(your document name)- "Microsoft Word Objects" - "ThisDocument"

double click "ThisDocument" and paste the following code. change "Doc3.doc" to your document's name.
save the document and close it. the next time you open it, the standard toolbar will be missing. opening a new doc or switching to another document will make the toolbar appear, switching back to Doc3 will disable the toolbar again

--------------------
Dim WithEvents wApp As Word.Application

Private Sub Document_Open()
Set wApp = Application
Application.CommandBars("Standard").Enabled = False
End Sub

Private Sub wApp_DocumentChange()
Application.CommandBars("Standard").Enabled = IIf(ActiveDocument.Name = "Doc3.doc", 0, 1)
End Sub

Private Sub Document_Close()
Application.CommandBars("Standard").Enabled = True
End Sub
---------------------
