  • 1. Upgrade eligibililty
    I paid for a boxed version of Access 2000. I have an OEM version of PowerPoint 2002. I have a trial version of Office 2003 and the trial runs out on Jan 31. I want to buy the Office 2007 professional upgrade. I see on the MS site since I have Access 2000, I should be eligible for the upgrade price. Problem: 2007 will probably not be available by then. So I'm considering buying the 2003 Office Pro Upgrade, and then submitting for the free 2007 upgrade. However, the 2003 upgrade appears to require a previous version of the entire office, not just Access. Interesting, though, when I installed the office 2003 trial, it said it was going to update, since it found a MS office component already installed. SO, what can I economically do to maintain a working copy of Office?

  • 3. Jan 10, 2007 update breaks Outlook Contacts
    Removing the GOOD CONTACTS add-in and program cured this problem. It must be incompatible with the latest patches.

  • 4. Lastest Update
    I have recently updated my Office package with the latest update to find that after having installed the update both EXCEL and ENTOURAGE have dissappeared. Can anyone help me to refind them? What has gone wrong...?

SR3 Trashed some buttons in my Excel work book

I just updated with Office SR3.  I have an Excel work book that is the heart 
of my business with some radio buttons that do not work now.  First, do you 
know of a fix for this?  Second, how can I uninstall the SR3 to get back to 
the good old days?  If neither, will System Restore get rid of SR3 for me 
(I'm a little chicken to 'system restore').  Third, what idiot at Microsoft 
needs a major re-boot!!

OK, I sort of take it back.  The new Excel had defaulted the security for 
Macros to 'High' from 'Medium', so my Macros and buttons were disabled.  
Everything is back to normal now.  Scared the hell out of me though.  The guy 
at Microsoft can keep his job, but could be reminded not to mess around with 
peoples settings.

I had to laugh at your posts Brian. I just upgraded over the weekend and have 
had nothing but headaches since. So many things were changed, settings, the 
SP2 or whatever the latest greatest flavor of "security" has caused me 
NOTHING BUT HEADACHES and I wish now I had never upgraded. 

Good luck, hope you get everything straightened out, I am still working on 
many things with Word, havent had the heart/nerve/etc to go to Excel yet.

2.Making a button to open a work book

Here is what I have.  I have a work book with one sheet in it, I call it IQS_2.xls.  I have another workbook that links to it and grabs info from it and enters it into the designated cells, I call this one EMQS.xls.  Is it possible to have a button on the IQS_2.xls sheet to automatically open EMQS.xls and save it with the prefix Quote_LLXXXXX (the XXXXX would be changed to a number; I would also like to have it save in a specified directory.  Any help suggestions would be greatly appreciated.




4.Outlook 2000 trashes my Address Book !!!

I have Win Xp, Office 2000.  I just switched from OE to Outlook, and
am learning my way around, as I expect to be in an office workplace
rather than at home in the near future.  

I imported my address book entries into Outlook, and then edited them,
deleting many entries that do not relate to my business work.  

Now the Address Book, which I gather is not part of Outlook, reflects
the edits.  All of my personal and hobby email addresses are gone!
(Fortunately, I have a backup of the address book elsewhere).  

I gather that Outlook does not use the Address Book, but uses
Contacts, which are in a pst file.  

Q:  Why did editing the contacts in Outlook also impact my Address

Q:  How do I make sure Outlook doesn't trash my Address Book again?
