  • 1. Databases - Contacts vs. Spreadsheets

  • 2. Basic Office 2003 question
    Where do I find out how to make my own business cards? So I can print them;I think I saw business card templates somewhere but can't find it. A friend said it was in office publisher;and I have Office 2003 Student/Teacher and can't find "publisher"? Thanks, Jeff
  • 3. Copies of a business card
    How do I reproduce an existing business card? I have a scanner, a printer, Office 2003, and blank Avery business card stock (template 8371). Any ideas?
  • 4. Workgroup Templates from a file server crashing recipients?!
    I've created a bunch of office-related templates that are stored on our shared file server. All of our clients have their "Workgroup Templates" pref pointed to see these templates. The problem is that whenever we send out a Word/Excel document created using these templates, the recipient's machine insists on trying to find OUR file server, as if there's some sort of link embedded in the template to it! The templates have two simple graphics in them (header and footer) neither of which are stored extraneous to the template file itself... I'm at a loss and this is causing major headaches. Anybody have any idea what I could be doing wrong?
  • 5. Office Documents Do Not Print; All Other Applications Do Print
    I have not been able to print in Office applications since I recently replaced my old notebook (WinXP Pro, MS Office XP Pro) with a new notebook (WinXP Pro, MS Office 2003 Pro). I print through a shared printer on a wireless network. All applications except MS Office 2003 print fine. Other applications that print OK include IE 6, MS Streets and Trips, Adobe Photoshop, etc. When I try to print in any MS Office application (Excel, Word, PowerPoint, or even Outlook), the application hangs every time. I get the following message except the application name changes depending on the Office application. Message is: Microsoft Office Word has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience. The information you were working on might be lost. Microsoft Office Word can try to recover it for you. . . . . "Just-In-Time Debugging states: An exception 'Unhandled Win32 Exception' has occurred in WINWORD.EXE." (Or whatever app is in use.) OS: WinXP Pro (Up to date on updates) App: MS Office Pro 2003 SP 2 Print server is WinXP Pro. I don't think it is relevant, but the printer is an HP Color LaserJet 2600n. I have tried doing a repair on Office to no avail. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks, Bill

File Name Too Long For Recycle Bin - Cannot Delete

Postby TWFyayBTdGV2ZW5zb24 » Tue, 11 Nov 2003 08:01:10 GMT


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.

Have you tried Shift-Del to delete while bypassing the recycle bin?

You may also want to try the following:  http://www.**--****.com/

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.
