    I need to send a word doc back and forth between myself and my assistant to edit and reedit. Is there a way to do this were the dodc doesn't have to be resaved to the hard dirve with the new changes and then emailed back. Maybe have it on the email which only has to be opened edited then replied to. Thanks for your time.

  • 4. MS Office 2003 Save My Settings Wizard
    I have a number of customized menu bars that are made up of different macros. For instance, I have one called "Forms" and when I click an object on the toolbar it automatically pulls up that form and another called "General" with other macros. I have used the MS Office 2003 Save My Settings Wizard (MSO2003SMSW) so I don't lose these customized menus, etc. My problem is that somehow, the items from one list appear on the wrong toolbar. The first time it happened I thought that I had just created them incorrectly. I went to the MSO2003SMSW and restored my previous settings. Then, I go back into Word and the menu bars are correct. So, I go back out and run the MSO2003SMSW again to make sure that it is saved. Things are okay for a while, but then the next thing I know I open Word and the menu bars are wrong again. I go back out to the Wizard and restore my previous settings and then I get a message saying that my macros are disabled. I then go to the Macros Settings and fix that problem, it works okay for a while, then, again, it has the wrong menu items on the menu bar and I have to start the whole process again. This is driving me crazy. I have spent a lot of time trying to fix this problem and was hoping that someone out there will have some ideas for me. Thanks. -- S
  • 5. when using office-tries to install again.
    I have Microsoft Office 2003 installed. When I try to open any program (Word, Excel, etc.) Office tries to install itself again. So I've tried to remove Office. When I try to unstall, I get the following error message: Error 1316. Setup cannot read from file C:\WINDOWS\Installer\PRO11.MSI. Check your connection to teh network, or CD-ROM drive. For other potential solutions to this problem, see FILES\PFILES\MSOFFICE\OFFICE11\1033\SETUP.CHM. How can I get rid of Office on my computer?

Excel Mouse Selection Problem

Postby Paulo Silva » Tue, 06 Jan 2004 21:20:51 GMT

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?
