Blank White Square

Postby Jesslyn Hendrix » Thu, 16 Oct 2003 03:21:01 GMT

sometimes when working in Word, either switching between windows, after a
dialog box or switching between applications, users will get a blank white
square in the middle of their document where the previous window or box was
located.  The only way to get rid of the box is to close and reopen word.  I
have seen posts on Woodys, but no resolution and NOTHING on MS's site.
Anyone come across this and/or have a resolution or troubleshooting path to
follow?

2.Pivot Table showing white square instead of component on some PCs

Hi,

I have developed a pivottable application in ASP.NET and am using the code

<object id="pivot" 
classid="CLSID:0002E520-0000-0000-C000-000000000046"></object>

to show the pivot table on the apsx page, on some PCs this results in the 
page showing white square instead of component. Is this due to the CLASSID 
not being recognised or a security issue not loading the component?

All the PCs have Office 2000 or higher installed on them.
