  • 2. Office Install on TS Messed up... what happend to settings if I remote it?
    Ever since we upgraded our TS to Office 2003, things have gone down hill... Users Cant find Word 2003 for use in Outlook, though they can run Word 2003 on its own. Excel complains about stdole2.tlb not being there Lots a VBA Subsystems/environments not available or able to initialize.. Everything works if you are a Domain Admin.(Local Admin Does not do it) I didn't remember the first time if I installed Office in Install Mode, so I Reinstalled (not uninstall/reinstall) on top of the Existing install and made sure it was in install mode. I was thinking about completely removing Office and reinstalling it... Though I'd like the user's setting for Outlook and Signatures, etc to be there when I reinstall it... What would be my best action to take? Thanks, Scott<-
  • 3. Manual Uninstall Office
    How do you manually uninstall Office 2002. I need to clean out the registry because I am still getting prompted for a password on my outlook PST file, even though no pst file exists and I did a reinstall twice. Thanks for any help as I haven't had a reply in several posts yet. Sincerely, Luke
  • 4. Office 2003 VBA Help will not install
    I have a site license for Office Pro 2003. I've installed it many times on many systems. I always choose the custom options and make sure I add the VBA Help option. I have one system (Win XP SP2 on a new Dell Latitude D810) in which everything appears to load, but when I click on a VBA item in the help screen, nothing happens. I've tried this from within the Excel Visual Basic environment and the Word Visual Basic Environment. I've tried detect and repair, I've tried removing the feature then reinstalling it, I've searched for help all over Microsoft's knowledge base, many forums, etc. all without success. I find many references to people that did not know they had to specifically install the help file, but nothing on people that have properly installed the option yet it will not work. Your help and insite would be greatly appreciated. Thank you. Richard -- rzernow

I recently purchased a new computer which came with office 2007 small 
business edition. I want to know if it is possible to make the componets of 
office 2007 appear like older versions of office, ie get rid of all the 
stupid themes and colour schemes etc so it looks like the older versions I am 
used to. If not I will be force to downgrade back to an older version

When you buy a new car, do you make it look like your old one?

It looks like you'll be downgrading. You have three color choices, period.

Hello; just a comment regarding cars... When I buy a car I expect the 
steering wheel, pedals and all other important controls to be where they used 
to be. In case of MS Office 2007 - the steering wheel is in the trunk, the 
break pedal - in the glove compartment and the lights switch - on the roof. 
We have been forced to learn Office all over again. Unquestinably, learning 
itself is a good thing to do, keeps your brain active and this is supposed to 
be good for the brain. However, I dare to say that many people would prefer 
to spend their time in a more productive way - learning for instance foreign 
languages. Why on earth is the new tab [Home] called "Home" when it deals 
with text formatting ..why "Insert a footnote" is under "References" while 
all other things that you "inser" are under "Insert". Things we all have 
mastered for years, things we could do with closed eyes - we now have to 
learn all over again. I find the new interface absolutely horrible and 
non-intuitive. Apart from this - it consumes about 20% of the screen area.

It looks nice - not sure why I want to spend another $30 after
spending $500 on office 2007 and the two days it took to install.
Wish Best Buy still carried Office 2003.

I have addintools installed. I like it. I try using the ribbon as much 
as I can to get used to finding the features that I use, but more 
often than not I cannot find some of the more unusual functions and I 
have to go back to the add-on to use the function.

My personal opinion to M$ is that they should have made office work 
like IE 7 works. Have the ribbon be the default but, when you push 
Alt, the old menus appear. This would encourage us to use the ribbon 
but would short circuit the frustration of not being able to find 
things.

Hi Brian,

While pressing Alt doesn't bring up the old menus in Office 2007 apps, the old keyboard shortcuts do work for the most part, both
Alt and Ctrl ones and if the keyboard shortcuts are displayed in your Add-in you may want to then also try that sequence in the
ribbon.

For example, in Word, to get to the options menu you can use
 the 2007 shortcut of   Alt, F, I
 or the pre-2007 one of     Alt, T, O

For a variety of interactive, viewable and printable was/is 'maps' this link may be helpful. :)

I am so with you - I made the mistake of purchasing Office 2007 instead of 
2003 and am completely regretting it.

I have had it for several months now (albeit only on our business PC - not 
on my home PC or any of the PCs I use at work). So I only use it one day a 
week but I just can't get to grips with it.

I am an IT professional (MCSE, CCNP, Citrix etc) and I use new applications 
all day but this new office is just doing my head in. I'm reluctant to give 
up MS Office as I would consider myself to be an advanced user (VBA coding 
etc) but I'm seriously considering embracing Open Office. Microsoft PLEASE 
give us a way to get our old UI back!!!!

Eileen, while you're at it why don't you go back to driving a Packard or an 
Edsel.

Until you familiar with new ribbon UI, you can use free addins to use old
classic menu of office-2003 in Office-2007, from below page.

Office 2007 IS the Edsel. I sure wish I had used the trial version
before buying.

The whole POINT of Office '07 is to give us a new GUI. The new GUI is the 
main complaint against it too.

1.compatibility of office 2007 with old version and mac version offi

Recently I installed office 2007 on my pc, windows xp.  When I tried to open 
an email attached old version excel files (from a mac user), the office 2007 
could not be pumped up, instead, the windows installer wanted to install the 
old version office which had been uninstalled by the installation of office 
2007. So I had to open 2007 excel program first and then find the file and 
open it (incompatible with mac version?). In order to avoid the conflict 
between the old version and office 2007, I thought it would be better to 
completely remove the old version. So I clicked contral panel "add or remove 
program" . On the program list, i found the old version office xp still 
there. but when I clicked the remove button, i was told "this patch package 
could not be opened." (how can i completely remove the old version office xp?)
Thanks,

3.Preview what Excel 2007 will look like in older versions

Hi all,

Just wondering, when save xlsx files as xls files, I've gotten the
Conditional Formatting Compatibility message like many others.  Anyone
know if there is a way to preview the spreadsheet the way it will
actually appear on a version of say excel 2003?  For example I made a
column chart with 3-D formatting, saved it as an xls file, and opened
it on another machine that had the old version of excel and it just
changed the 3-D bars, to shaded 2-D ones.  Any way to preview without
moving to another machine?  I've checked a bunch of online sources and
couldn't find anything saying yes or no. Thanks for any ideas.

4.Can Excel 2007 title bar be made to work/look like earlier version

anyone who has any long time experience with earlier versions.
