  • 1. How do I activate trial Office?
  • 2. Cannot print a range of pages in a mail merged document.
    (Word 2003, Xerox Phaser 4500 w/ envelope tray, Windows XP SP2) I've a document created from a list in Excel via the Mail Merge wizard to create a series of addressed envelopes. If I attempt to print a range of them (i.e. pages 1 - 50) the job fails. Well to be honest it doesn't fail, it just plain never appears to spool to the printer and shows up in the printer properties but never makes it to the printer. If I print to the same printer, Current Page, Selection or Entire Document, the printing proceeds just fine. Is there a reason for this? Something I'm missing?
  • 3. installing office 10 and accessing older version files
    I need to install a newer version of ms office. Will my old files still be accessible or do I need to back them up on a disk before removing the "old" Office and adding the "New" Office 10?

What is special about windows metafiles that deleting cropped area is not possible ??

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.

5.Can you retrieve-If you DELETE the file 'Inbox' from the Recycle bin on desktop

I was trying to delete some files that involved several 
pop-up banner ads & windows from interfering with my 
search for telecommuting jobs.  While clicking around on 
the internet, somehow this SPYWARE program began to write 
itself on to my hard drive, so I went into Windows 
Explorer to FIND FILES or FOLDERS to find it & DELETE 
whatever was associated with it!  Well, in the process, I 
ended up sending these files to the RECYCLE BIN on my 
desktop to get rid of them.  However, in the process of 
DELETING them, I also deleted a file 'Inbox' that I 
thought was part of the problem.  I pray there is a way to 
retrieve these emails I accidentally deleted!!!  PLEASE 
HELP ME!  These were very important emails regarding 
employment!  Thank you.
