  • 1. Send mail from Word
    When I try to use the option "Send to Mail Recipient" from Word or from Excel, the program shuts down. I have Office 97, also tried reinstalling Office, but this problem persists. Any ideas? Thanks
  • 2. File date display annoyance
    Every time I open an old file (record letter mail out to third parties) the date of the letter automatically opens to the current date instead of the historical date when the letter was made. It freaks me out because if I have to print for record reasons the letter do not show the correct date of when it was made. As a matter of fact I need the letter for legal reasons I searched through all the editing, tools, property, there is no help on how to correct this. I do not want automatic updates, if I had wanted a new version of the same letter, I would have used "file, save as" option HOW DO I CORRECT THIS SITUATION?

    I am using MS Office XP Pro 2003 and for some reason every time I try to open a word document, it will not let me. I have tried to reinstall, and get the same message: "**.txt is not available."

Hi, I am serious need of help.

Word keeps closing without any error message or warning. 
This happens when I have multiple documents open and 
switch between windows.

Anyone have any idea what's going on with it?

1.Word Closes without any error msg or warning

2.Word 2003 closes without warning or error

When using Word 2003 with 2 documents open, I click and type several things 
in the first document, then taskbar over to the other document and make some 
changes.  I repeat this series of steps multiple times and after about the 5 
or 6 time, Word just disappears.  All instances disappear with no error or 
warning and no option to save appears either. 

Hardware & Software Configuration:
IBM Thinkpad T42 with Windows XP PRO SP2 and Office 2003 (no SP).  

Things I've tried:
Installed Office 2003 SP-1, did not resolve the issue.
Swapped out memory chip for T42.  
Did a detect and repair on Office 2003.
Reinstalled Office 2003.
Started the computer in Safe Mode, did not resolve the issue.
Started the computer with selective startup and disabled all startup options.

Possible solutions:
I experienced similar software issues like this on other IBM T-Series 
laptops, specifically with Quickbooks.  The problem was resolved after 
disabling several of the pre-installed IBM startup tools (which there are a 
ton of on a Thinkpad).  However, I have not had similar luck in this 

Has anyone experienced this?  My next step is to have the motherboard 
replaced.  Although I still haven't reinstalled windows yet, which you never 
know might do the trick.

4.Word 2002 closes with no warning

I am running WinXP Pro and Office XP. Problem is when MS 
word is open and I am working with other programs I will 
minimize word documents then when I attempt to maximize 
the docs all of a sudden the program is no longer open. I 
have tried to figure out if it is happening when Outlook 
is open (it usually is). MS word is my email editor. Has 
anyone heard of this? Better yet can anyone help?
