  • 1. Picture issue in Outlook
    I've been having a picture issue in Outlook 2003 (NOT Outlook Express) that just started recently. I compose an E-Mail in outlook and it has a picture in it. I send the message. Now I go to look at the message in the "sent messages" folder and the picture isn't showing up; I get an empty white box with the red "X" in the upper left corner. But get this: If I click "Forward", THE PICTURE SHOWS UP IN THE MESSAGE I AM FORWARDING. So, clearly, the picture never left, it is simply not being displayed. ***I have all security image filtering turned off, so that is not the problem.*** [e.g. EVERYTHING under tools / options / security, "downloaded pictures" (which this is not) is unchecked.] Anyone have any idea what is going on, and how to get pictures to display?
  • 2. .docx becomes .zip when opened from web
    I have installed office 2007 and I can open .docx documents when they are being open from the computer or a file share. My problem is when I open a docx from a website. It then asks me to save the zip file instead of just opening the document. I have tried to repair and uninstall/install Office 2007 but with same result. Does anyone have a tip to get Word to open docx files from web? -Salva

I want to add some clipart to a Powerpoint presentation which has a coloured 
background but the clipart border shows up as a white square.  How do I make 
this white square surround transparent so that it doesn't show up on the 
coloured background.

2.Red "X" in white square?

I'm running OE6 under WinXP Home SP2.

I have a feeling that this is an Operating System concern and not limited to 
OE, but I couldn't find anything under Help for either of those.

I get an email with an embedded picture of some sort but the picture doesn't 
appear -- just the little box with the red "X".  Is this something wrong at 
the sender's end or at my end?  What's my first step to resolving this?

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


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

<object id="pivot" 

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.
