  • 1. File permission request.
    I am trying to open a document in my A drive. Although the document is shown as there and using 'search' verifies this, when I click to open it I get a message that it cannot be opened and am told to *check file permission for this drive or document. How do I do this? -- Thanks for any help you can give fivebees
  • 2. convert works 7 word document to Office XP word document
    Hi, After changing from Works 7 to Office XP Pro 2002 I now find that my old Works 7 Word documents cannot be imported into Office. None of the formats are correct and all the text is just garbage. Is there no way to convert Works 7 documents for use in Office XP?

  • 4. Word XP MACRO ! ... err now what ?????
    I have been given a Macro (source code) for Word (I use Word XP). What *exactly* do I now do to install/run the thing? The macro writer gave me the following cryptic steps, but I am not seeing what he expects me to see, so I can't use them:- When in Word: Tools->Macro->VB Click on run type a name in the box then it opens up with Sub () End Sub Simply copy program code via Notepad Things go awry after Tools->Macro I don't have "VB", but I do have "Visual Basic Editor", so I've selected that. In the blank window that then appears I have clicked on "Run", and sussed out how to create a new macro; pasted in the code, and saved the whole document. On re-editing the macro is still there!!! But won't work. An initial statement of "zz = 0" fails as "Invalid outside procedure" So I notice that the "Sub ()" and "End Sub" aren't present as per instructions, so I added them before/after all the code, and now get error "Expected: identifier". Only other thing I can think of is to say 'where-I-am' in Word. I'm 'in' the macro editing, in an edit window with title of "MyMacro - UserForm1(code)", and with a couple of one liner pull-downs above the code: top-left = "(General)" and top-right = "(Declarations)". errrr ..... how DO I get the macro to install/run?
  • 5. HELP .. how do I get rid of email toolbar in Word?
    I've been sent a document. When I open it in Word (OfficeXP version), it has an email toolbar. I can't see how to close / get rid of this toolbar!!!!! It's taking up so much of the screen ! It doesn't seem to be one of the normal tool bars like Formating, Mail merge. There's no View option or Edit option or ANYTHING AT ALL that I can see anywhere that relates to this sodding tool bar. How do I get rid of it please???? Many thanks

I want to purchase XP for my home use, my work runs 2000.
If I bring files from home to run at work will 2000 be 
able to open them? What (if anything) will I need to do to 
share files between the two versions?

Hi Ed,

You should be able to open and edit the files in either version as the
file format has not changed.

If you want the documents to appear the same in either version then in
Word 2002 go to Tools/Options/Compatibility options set your default
compatibility for Word 2000.

Note these are slight changes and you may not even encounter them.

Please post all follow-up questions to the newsgroup. Requests for
assistance by email can not be acknowledged.

1.Viewing a shared folder in either Office 2002 (XP) or Office 2000

I am using Office 2003 and in Outlook I know how to share and view others 
shared calendars. But others in my office have different versions (Office 
2002 and Office 2000) and I am unable to view the shared folders.  I know how 
to set up the permissions and everything, but I can't figure out how to view 
the actual calendar. For instance, in Office 2003 it is right there under 
calendar then "open a shared calendar".  ANY help would be greatly

Is there a certain configuration for sharing your calendar
