Default run time error 91

Using Office 2000, have all of the updates. When try to open Word, get
"Runtime error 91, obj variable or with block variable not set". I click
exit on the error and the program opens but no toolbars. When I close I get
the same message. It use to work and all of a sudden started getting this
message. I have uninstalled and reinstalled office and the service packs. I
have renamed Normal.dot and still the message.

Here's what Office MVP Beth Melton has to say about runtime errors:

A "runtime" error means that there is an error in a macro or add-in that is
attempting to run. Typically these macros are created by a third-party and
are not part of the Word installation. (They could also be caused by a
malfunctioning macro virus as well)

Many third-party applications will create an add-in and place it in the
Office\Startup folder or use a COM add-in (DLL) to integrate their software
with Word. Another common add-in, the "Microsoft Works Suite Add-in for
Word" can only be found in your Add/Remove programs list.

Aside from the Works Suite Add-in, to determine if you have any add-ins you
can check for them using the following:

Go to Tools/Templates and Add-Ins and see if there are any global templates
or add-ins listed. If you find any then chances are they are located in
your Office\Startup folder or Word\Startup folder.

The location of the Word\Startup folder can be found under
Tools/Options/File Locations and the Office\Startup folder will be located
in the installation path for Office.

If you find more than one add-in move them one at a time until you
determine which one is causing the problem.

As of Word 2000, Word can have COM add-ins, those that are added in via the
Registry rather than the Startup folders. To check for COM add-ins add the
"COM Add-In" command to your toolbar.

- Right-click any toolbar and select Customize
- On the Commands tab, select the Tools category
- Locate COM Add-Ins on the right
- Drag/Drop to a location of your choice

For more information on COM Add-Ins, see this article:

There was an add-in in the Word/Start folder. I moved it and am no longer
getting the error message when opening and closing Word.

I still don't have any toolbars though. What do I need to do to get them
back. The only things that show on the top is the bar that says Microsoft
Word and the ruler. Nothing else.

Thanks for your help.

I checked for the toolbars missing under the Discussion group and found the
answer. I did the run winword.exe /a and it worked beautifully.

Thank you for all the help.
