  • 1. Publisher 2000 won't start
    I've installed Publisher three times as part of Office 2000. On startup the program the screen is grayed out with no options available and the catalog does not appear. All I can do is Alt-Cntrl-Del to get out of it. In the message bar at the bottom of the screen it says "unfinished document". As an alternative, if I double click on an old Publisher document it does start. I can then go to the options menu and disable the Catalog on startup. It then will start ok but locks up when I try to manually start the Catalog to begin a project and I'm back to where I was and have to manually shut down. I am installing on a new new computer and never had this problem on the old one. Can anybody help? Simply unable to use it this way. Thanks - Dick
  • 2. Pub2003 - calendar start day
    Hi, the old Publisher wizard let you choose your calendar start day (monday or sunday). There is no option in 2003. I have checked the regional settings on my pc. We basically need Publisher to give us an option to start the calendar on a monday or a sunday. Thanks for any ideas Ric
  • 3. Problem with tabs after saving 2002 newsletter as 2000
    I update a weekly newsletter in Publisher 2002 and send it to someone as a Publisher 2000 document. I have been doing this for over a year, but just recently have run into a problem. When I save the publication as a Publisher 2000 document, all of the tabs disappear so the text becomes flushed left. I have tried this on several machines where it worked at one time (home and work), but it is no longer working. I have tried fixing the document on another machine that has Publisher 2000, but when I attempt to "tab" I get a space instead and I end up retyping the entire newsletter. Any idea why this would happen all of a sudden? I haven't installed or upgraded any software. I'm using Publisher 2002 on a Windows 2000 Professional system at work and Publisher 2000 on a Windows XP Home system at home. Thanks!

    Can I install Publisher 2000 (from the MS Office small bus edition CD's) onto my computer which has office 2003 (educators version, so no publisher)? How do I do it? I am afraid I will mess up my computer if I try. Thanks, Lora

Sorry Ian. Unfortunately, no version of Publisher comes with a macro recorder.

After managing to set up OE-QuoteFix on his new PC, Ed reads a message

However, you can use Shortcut Manager for Publisher, available at
 http://www.**--****.com/ , to assign keyboard shortcuts to commands in
Publisher, and you can use the Visual Basic editor to write macros.

5.Can you record a macro in Publisher like you can in Excel?

In Excel I use the feature to Record a Macro.  Excel records the keystrokes 
and converts to VB.  Does Publisher have that option?  In my version,

don't know how to code VB.
