  • 1. New User Accounts
    I'm still a novice XP user and when I tried to add a new user account it only allowed me to set it up as an administrator, even though I'm set up as administrator. So I now have 2 administrator accounts and can't delete either one as I get an error message which tells me that I must create a new administrator account before I delete one! Can anyone help me to delete one account, the new one I created, keep my account as administrator and then set up a new account that's not got administrator rights?

Contact list became corrupted when I used Intellimover Transfer Your PC from 
Windows ME Pentium 2 (Office 2000) to Windows XP Pro Pentium 4 (Office 2003). 
 Unfortunately Microsoft used same data file extensions (*.pst), but stored 

Also, Outlook 2003 contact list is not synchronized with e-mail contact 
list.  When I change info in my contact list, it doesn't change in my e-mail 
To: or CC: lists.  Or, it has the first and last name reversed, or it has a 
totally different name than the Outlook contact list.

Any one else have same problem?

2.Using Access 2003 and getting an "Access 2000 File format" in head

I have created a new database using Access 2003.  Why does the header read 
"Access 2000 File Format"? I have reinstalled Access 2003 recently.  I have 
also opened Acc2003 first and then opened the file.  What's up? 

3.file format change between Office 2000 and 2003

We have about 10 users runnning Office 2000 + Outlook 2003 
(came as part of SBS2003) - and I am upgrading one 
computer to Office 2003 so that I can email merge (not 
possible with Word 2000 + Outlook 2003).

Are the file formats for Word 2003 and Excel 2003 the same 
as 2000 - or is this going to cause problems, with the 
newer Excel/Word version always having to "Save As..." in 
an older format?

Cheers for any info




5.Using the new Office 2007 File Format or Stay with the old format


We at a company of 500 people are going to upgrade to Office 2007 from 
Office XP. All the files on the network stay in Office XP format untill the 
special feutures of 2007 are used. Until that time new files would be saved 
to the Office XP\2003 file format. 

How is the rest of the world using the new file format? Question in that 
could be: What to do with outgoing e-mail? What to do with my documents on 
the general website of the company? As an ICT department you can't ask youre 
customers to install the Compatibility Pack because WE are working with the 
new Office 2007. The are a lot of company's wprking with the old versions of 

So the question is: How do most people configure there install of Office 
2007 File Format on a network. (You can set options containing standard file 
format by GPO)
