  • 4. Text Import Wizard
    Hi, does anyone know how to open a text file without going through the text import wizard? I open an .out file on a daily basis, and it's always delimited/space/general on the wizard options. Maybe there is a way to set default text import options, or open this file in a different way. Please advise
  • 5. Printing a mail merge issue
    Hi, Last time I ran a mail merge, I had an issues I could not resolve. The merged document looked fine on the screen. It was the correct font and sizing. However, when I printed it, half printed fine and the other half printed out funny. It came out in a completely different looking font - darker and more squashed. It had also inserted small boxes for any punctuation such as commas. I tried running the mail merge again, but the same problem occurred. I tried rebooting the computer and running it again, but it happened again. The only thing I could do in the end was pull out the most important ones and put in their addresses manually, and print them out individually. Does anyone know why this happened?And how I can prevent it happening again? Many thanks!

  Does Office 2007 have any flaws or does it run smooth after you install it 
on your computer?

I've not personally experienced any issues so I would say yes

What do mean by have any flaws? all software has a chance of having some 
type of issue for one reason or another that may or may not be found until 
after it is released to the public....

It's generally fine, but it has its issues like any piece of software. 
If you tell us more about your configuration and what programs you'd 
like to use, we can give you an idea whether you'll encounter any of

1.I am So Confused About Safe Sender List and Safe Recipient List


I am setting up Outlook in Microsoft Office 2003 and I want to add domains
to the Safe Senders list and the Safe Recipients list.

I am so confused. Are the people on my Safe Sender list people I send email
to or is the list for people who send email to me.

I know this seems silly but I became confused as I was trying to set up this

Thank you in advance for your kind help and comments,

2.I am using office 2003, is there a need to upgrade to office 2007

3.i am using office 2007 how can i put in exel the numbers in arabic


Since using vista my word document toolbars and colours which actually 
surround office document which I always use in print layout (not the page 
itself I know how to change colours on the pages etc) all the surrounding 
bits are now a purple colour which are not good for the eyes, formerly when I 
used office  in  to try to revert to grey and have noticed that anything 
shown on colours which say grey are actually this awful purple colour if you 
try them out on your actual document itself I have tried to alter the 
framwork of office documents by trying lots of different things e.g. 
Format/background in word, display properties, control panel, etc. tried 
everything but nothing works to change the colour and appearance of all my 
office documents.
I hope that makes sense and would really appreciate it if someone caqn give 
me an answer.  Thanks.


5.Cannot open docs or emails writen in Office 2003 - am using 2007

What do I require?  Compatibility Mode shows up on toolbar - does it need 
some specail action to allow it to recognize Word 2003 or other word 
processors?  This is frustrating when using my previous files that were 
written in Word 2000 or Works 8.0.
