  • 1. Clipboard capacity
    I have 1 Gb of PC memory and Office Xp + Winxp Sp2. When using graphics in WORD I find that after only a few edits WORD starts to perform incorrectly, toolbars missing etc. I find that removing items from the clipboard solves the problem and normal Word performance restarts. I assume that the memory used for the clipboard is being limited. Can I increase the capacity it has. Checking Windows Task Manager shows that only a very limited memory is being used viz. 28M when there is no other applications using the remaining memory
  • 2. Help, please! Microsoft Forms Dialog Box
    My OS is Windows XP. I have had to reload Office 2003, which I have now actually done twice. Whenever I open any of three Office applications -- Word, Powerpoint or Excel (but not Outlook!) -- I initially get the following error message in a Microsoft Forms window: "[exclamation mark in yellow triangle] Could not load an object because it is not available on the machine." I click OK, the message box goes away and everything seems to run fine thereafter. I've also noted in Word that I cannot get any text to highlight or any text boxes to flood-fill with color! Are they related? How can I get rid of the error message and how can I restore the "color options" in Word? Thanks so much for your help!
  • 3. Daily bits of miscellaneous info

  • 4. can I set up a document to use the enter key to move between fiel.
    I am wondering if there is a way to take an existing file and set it up so that i can add information to certain locations in the document however not change the format of the documentation. This is a form I use with every client I work with, in which I have to enter information such as name address, and information about the houses they have for rent or are renting. I would like to set up a way so that I can use either the tab key or enter key to go from just one place to the other. Currently after I type in information I have to then either backspace or delete the extra characteristic which are added after I put in the client information. If I have to retype the document in using a new format that is ok, I am just not sure where to look for this. Any help would be great. I am using microsoft word currently. Thank you very much
  • 5. Word Document with Image. Not visible on open
    I have a user who has a brand new Dell PC with a fresh install of Office 2003. When opening forms (saved documents). The company logo(image) isn't visible, but when the print preview option is selected the image is visible. When the print preview is closed it's then visible in the document. Granted it's a near fresh install, but the user has had control of the machine for around a week. So she's had more than enough time to taint the machine. This isn't a huge issue, but if anyone has any ideas I'd love to hear them. Thanks, Dan

You need to use Outlook 2003 to create a Outlook 2002 compatible data file 
{*.pst file}.  Once you create the new data file, you move the contains from 
the Outlook 2003 file to the new one.  Outlook 2003 Help provides detailed 
directions on how to create a new data file.

Thanks for replying, I kind of figured that would be the case... I'll
have to call one of the field guys in next week and use Outlook2k3 on
their thinkpads to do it. Thanks!

1.downgrading from 2003 to 2002

I am replacing Outlook Student/Teacher 2003 with Office XP (2002) Outlook.  
The datafiles used with 2003 were migrated from 2000 so they are all 
compatible.  My problem is that the contacts folder (which still contains all 
its entries) is not by default used for the address book.  When I go to email 
accounts, view existing address book it already shows the outlook address 
book, but when I go to the properties of the contacts folder, it won't let me 
select it for use with the address book (the box is grayed out).  What am I 
doing wrong?

2.Problems after downgrading from Outlook 2003 to Outlook 2002

7 months ago I installed Office 2003 Beta. When the trail period expired
recently I removed Office 2003 and reinstalled Office 2002. Unfortunately I
did not make any backup of my Outlook files. Office 2002 could read only the
file (outlook.pst) that was made before the Office2003 trial period. The
file that was generated during the trial period (outlook1.pst) could not be
imported into Outlook 2002.

I have now learned that Outlook 203 uses a file format different from that
of Outlook 2002, so I re-installed Outlook 2003, but I still get an error
message when trying to import outlook1.pst.

I really hope to recover the mail from the 7 moths' period, so any advice
will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

3.How to DOWNgrade from Outlook 2003 to Outlook 2002

Recently got a new home computer with a three month Office XP 2003 
trial. Now as part of my college license I can install Office XP at home 
but they have not upgraded to Office 2003 but have stayed on 2002.

Installed, everything working fine except Outlook 2002 which says unable 
to open default email folders then closes.

Register problem? Any ideas? TIA CB

4.Downgrading from Outlook 2003 to Outlook 2002

I need to downgrade one of our users from Outlook 2003 to Outlook 2002, to 
try to solve issues with an iPAQ PDA. The HP people are telling me to intall 
Outlook 2002, as the iPAQ shipped with it and there may be issues with 2003 
(I suspect that they haven't tested the iPAQs with the latest version of 
Outlook). The problem I am having is that Outlook 2003 seems to be leaving 
files/info behind when I uninstall it, so that when I install Outlook 2002 it 
will not work. When I do a "test account setting" in the email account set 
up, everything works fine. When I do a "send and receive" I get an error and 
no mail comes in. When I reinstall Outlook 2003, all of the settings are 
still there (I don't need to set up an account or point Outlook to the pst 
file) and the test messages from Outlook 2002 then come in. Is there any way 
for me to completely remove all reference to Outlook 2003, so that the system 
believes that there has never been Outlook installed before? I have looked at 
the system restore points and they do not go back far enough for me to 
restore the system to before the point that I installed Office 2003.
