Good luck!  Every thing loaded Ok for me,  but when i 
tried opening Word files or Access files created in Office 
97,  my computer kept crashing and rebooting itself.   The 
only way i could get at my information was to re-copy the 
individual file from a back-up CD.  
((My data files had been copied over wireless network to 
the new computer,  but that should not have affected 
If any one knows about a patch to correct this problem,  
i'm more than ready!

3.Gremlin in Excel 97 running on Windows XP Home edition

When transferring Excel files to Excel 97 installed on 
Windows XP Home Ed. from Excel 97 installed on Windows 95 
or 98, the "Save as" window shows only the first letter 
of the file's name and will not accept the full name of 
the file even when completed manually by typing it in. 
The file saves only as "(First letter).xls".

The file name must be completed in Excel once the file 
has been saved by going into the "Open file" menu window 
and right-clicking on the file name, then typing in the 
full name. However, it then automatically adds in 
the ".xls" suffix a second time.

Excel 97 appears to be working normally otherwise. I have 
also installed Office service packs 1 and 2 since this 
problem was noticed, but to no avail.

Any ideas anyone?

Tks in advance
