  • 1. downgrade
    Hi. I installed office 2003 and it really messed things up. It interferes with our chat program. I did a system restore and now am having problems with my office 2000. I cannot open word any longer and every time I check my email it comes up with an install notice. I cannot use mail merge at either. I need to get this fixed. I tried to reinstall office 2000 and it says verify source or something like that when it goes to install. Does anyone have any ideas on how I can fix this and just get my office 2000 working properly again.
  • 2. Access to Beta Website
    I have Office 2007, Beta 2 (version 12.0.4017.1006) installed. It was a clean install; no other version of Office was installed before I installed the Beta version (I had reformatted the drives). Now when I try to provide MS with feedback, I cannot connect to the webstie. I click Help-->contact us and the page that opens is the "Microsoft Office Online Beta Authorization Error Page". I have followed the advice MS provides on the page and nothing seems to work. Evidently, the site knows I have the Beta since it detected it when I clicked on the "My Products" bar on the left. Any ideas on what I need to do? -- Fr. Gripshover St. John the Beloved Catholic Church McLean, VA

i've tried upgrading from the trial offer, after purchasing a hard copy.  my 
key code was accepted, and that's where everything stops.  i have limited 
features and when i save, i am still saving in '2003' not '2007'. 
help...my semester is half over and i need the other features!

You are not able to Upgrade a Trial version. You need to remove the Trial and all 
Office apps that is already installed and install the 2007 Home and Student 
providing it is not an Upgrade version

1.Why i do not buy Office 2007

I am not buying Office 2007 for the reasons below. It may well be that I have 
been unable to find the workaround of these problems, therefore anybody who 
could enlighten me is welcomed:

a) I cannot customize the ribbon. To use a keyboard shortcut I need to hit 5 
keys in order to get there, while in 2003 office I could fix my own shortcuts 
with &X on the toolbar. 
b) I cannot use word for email editor in outlook. All autocorrect & autotext 
entries in normal.dotm are not available in NormalEmail.dotm & vice versa. 
Settings that exist in word do not exist in outlook editor. The function to 
record a macro doesn exist in the editor of outlook and the macros of word 
do not work in outlook.
c) the way that the flags function in the new version is worthless. They all 
have almost the same color and if thhey had done it possible to customize the 
flags (to have a possibility of 25 customized flag colors), a user would use 
5 flags to assign the same functions that exist now.
d) dozens of more reasons which would make a book of this message. 

If you think I am wrong just ignore this message. If you think that I am 
reasonable you can forward this message to those who might be able to review 
what the potential customers have to say.


2.convert access 2.0 forms to 2007 without buying 2003

I'm thinking about buying Access 2007.  I have applications with many forms 
created with Access 2.0.  Access 2007 won't import them -- they have to pass 
through 2000, 2002, or 2003.  Is there a way to do this upgrade without 
buying an interim version of Access?

3.Why won't my word document convert to PDF??

4.Why does outlook 2007 convert HTML to text?

Every email that I receive is converted to Text.  Don't see an obvious way to 
turn off this "feature" in tools or in junk mail filters.



5.office 2007 asks to convert each time and won't activate

Everytime I choose to convert my office 2007 trial to the full version, it 
accepts my product key and goes through the confuguration process. After this 
it will ask me to close it out and restart so the changes can take effect. 
When I do so it'll ask me again to convert to the full product and will not 
activate. What should I do?
