    I have a shortcut to an .xls file set that suggests that it be opened as read only. When I click the link the system actualy opens the file twice - it prompts me to open read only, opens, then prompts me again. The open method as defined in Folder Options is as follows: Application used to perform action: "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office12\EXCEL.EXE" /e "%1" Use DDE DDE Message: [open("%1")] Why is this behaving this way?

  • 5. Revert to Office 2003 Professional
    I Give Up! Last weekend I upgraded from Office 2003 Pro to Office 2007 Enterprise which I got under a Home Use Policy. Ever since installing Office 2007 each application installs and configures itself when the application is launched. Outlook also goes through the routine frequently when it checks for new mail or sends mail. I have accepted the fact that MS has no fix for this and want to revert to Office 2003 Pro. - What do I need to do so that my Outlook files and accounts remain intact and useable? - What do I need to do so I don't get some error message should I try to re-install Office 2007 at a later date? I'm thinking something like 'Office 2007 is already installed on this computer' type error. - Should I delete Office 2007 before instally Office 2003? - Any other helpful information I may not have considered. Thank You in advance.

Hello everyone,

I'm having a strange problem with Excel 2000. After i click for the first
time my left mouse button, the mouse enters selection mode, as if i was
pressing the shift key.
I've browsed the net for a solution, even the MS support site with no
success.
Has anyone ever had this problem? Or has a clue of what could be appening?

Thanks in advance,

Paulo Silva

Hi Paulo,

Have you tried using another mouse? I've encountered this issue with
Excel in the past. Only Excel exhibited the behavior.

If the problem still occurs then do you have a wheel mouse? If you
click the wheel in Excel then it will go into a selection mode.

Also take a look at the Status bar. If you see "Ext" then you are in
Extend Selection mode and it can be turned off by pressing F8 or Esc.

1.Excel Mouse selection problems

I am having a problem with excel.  Every time I open a 
workbook, when I select a cell with the mouse(left button 
click), the program seems to want to just highlight more 
area when the mouse is moved.  I can do nothing in the 
excel menus etc.  I try pressing enter to complete the 
selection and nothing happens.  I suspect my 2 year old 
has screwed something up when my wife lt her sit at the 
computer desk.  Any help would be appreciated

3.Opening Outlook - Mouse Selection problems

When I open Outlook the program runs through its setup and automatically 
checks for messages. Problem is, when it has finished the pointer on the 
mouse will move but will not allow me to select or 'click' on an item. The 
only way to rectify is to perform an Alt Ctrl Del. As soon as I perform the 
same the mouse is able to select items so I simply close the task manager 
window. This is becoming very annoying and only happens when opening Outlook. 
I am running Office 2003. Please help. 

4.Outlook 2003 crash after drop down list selection with mouse

Each time I select a drop down list in the Tool Option window, outlook 
crashes and show the standard message to restart Outlook and send report to 
Microsoft.  This append for differents drowp down list like Message Format, 
Signature selection, Language selection etc.  In the Event Viewer I can see 
that failing module is user32.dll I tried everything like recreate the 
profile, reinstalling Office from scratch, using different logon profile, 
using differents outlook profile, running outlook in safe mode, but the bug 
is still there. I am running Outlook 2003 SP2 on Windows XP SP2 with all the 
updates for XP.

What is strange is that Outlook crashes only when I select item in a drop 
down list with the mouse.  If I make a selection with the arrow on the 
keyboard, outlook don't crash.

Can anyone advice please?
