  • 1. Windows Search Tool
    hello, I have a question for y'all regarding searching for files using the windows search tool. I have a few users that are still running Windows 95 workstations while others use Windows XP. My users store their documents on a network share and use the Windows search tool's 'full-text' searching capabilities to find some of the harder to find documents. There issue here is with WordPerfect documents. Many of the Word Perfect documents are given file names by DocsOpen 3.9.6. The reason why DocsOpen isn't being used for 'full-text' searching is because the Hummingbird search server has not been installed yet. It will be but it is still a few weeks away and the Windows 'full-text' search works pretty good in the meantime - but I digress. The issue is that DocsOpen gives WordPerfect files an extention of '.01 or .02' depending on the version of the doc. This extention is ambiguous to Windows XP, ergo: none of these documents are found in the 'full-text' search. Is there a way to enable ambiguous extentions such as I mentioned to be included in the 'full-text' searches? My people running Windows 95 do not have this problem, only my XP people are suffering from this. Please help.

As he does them, he will receive points toward an incentive he wants (toy, video, etc.). In order to keep him going, I'd like to create a poster that we can color in as he does the work correctly. Everything I've seen in Publisher is related to medical thermometers. I would appreciate any suggestions. Not necessarily the best or easiest suggestion, but what about using a program like paint, make an oval for base, and then two lines for the "body" of Thermometer, erase top of oval and viola, thermometer?
  • 3. Clip board issues
    I installed office 2000 on a mchine that had 97, if I copy something to the clipboard without having previously oped Word, there is no paste. When I try again with Word open no problem. Where is the switch that I need to flip to get this back to a coordinated function?
  • 4. Outlook Notes in fullscreen - why?
    Today, the Outlook Notes suddenly have begun to open i fullscreen format, and I have not been able to find a way to resize them to normal format. I have, of course, tried the setting in Tools>Options, but to no effect. Can anybody help? I am using MS Office 2000 with Windows 2000.

File Name Too Long For Recycle Bin - Cannot Delete

Somehow when transferring old emails from one IBM T40 to the My Documents folder on another, identical, IBM T40, much of the body of the text of an old Outllook email message somehow became part of the file name.  XP will not let me delete the file and gives me an error message that the file name is too long for the Recycle Bin ... and it will not let me rename it or move it either.  It is in a subfolder of My Documents and I have tried deleting all of the folders above it as well and I get the same message.

I have been on the phone for several hours with IBM Techinical Support and they have no solution as well, other than to call Microsoft.

I was trying to delete some files that involved several

whatever was associated with it!  Well, in the process, I

thought was part of the problem.  I pray there is a way to
