  • 3. Office will not Save file when using the Save icon
    Hello: Strange thing here. I have some users that are working in either Excel or Word that will update files then click the save icon, close the file and the changes are not saved, sometimes. It is random. It performs the save progress bar and does not generate errors either. It will always save when the user goes to File->Save. thanks, Mike
  • 4. failed reinstallation of Office 97 Professional edition
    I have for years been running the CD rom of this program (minimal installation). when I went to reinstall there were lines missing at reinstallation. The installation failed. It appears that I must get back the missing lines to succeed in this reinstall. Is it possible to do this? How may I do this?
  • 5. Document imaging problem -- any expert out there?
    Is there anyone responding to the issues with scanning? I had posted something and have not heard back, and see other document imaging / scanning questions not being responded to. I want to use my scanner and printer so that, together, they behave like a copier. I want to scan something in and then print it. I find, regardless of settings, that the Office Tools in XP (document imaging / scanning) distort the picture in some way. Either it becomes smaller, moves around etc. Is there hope or should I move to a different imaging suite. Thanks Lynn

File Name Too Long For Recycle Bin - Cannot Delete

Help!!!

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.
