OK, the Remove Office tool is operating correctly, there's something else
wrong.

Check back in a few days, I'm escalating this one to Microsoft...

I'm wondering if permissions in the prefs folder may be set wrong, but I
would expect that:
A.  the 'remove office' routine should report a failure to remove the prefs;
and:
B.  there would be symptoms in lots of other apps as well.

However, it is a relatively trivial exercise to run 'repair permissions (in
Disk Utility) before running the remove office routine.

Worth a try!

Yep: That's what I imagined.  I don't have a response from Microsoft yet, I
think all those who might know the answer were at Mac Word.

Of course you KNOW that Apples are programmed to suffer some kind of
gruesome failure right before Mac World, don't you?  :-)

Cheers

Is there a downloadable trial version of Microsoft Publisher?
I have read through quite a few of the posts on here but haven't found a definitive answer. It seems from browsing the Office Online site that Microsoft only ship CDs but some people have mentioned a download and it does seem much more practical (not to mention cheap and quick-i am in the UK) to be able to download trial versions. I want to download a trial version ASAP as I have to produce a work newsletter within a fortnight and the painfully slow IT people where I work will take 10 days to process purchasing a licence for my office computer.

It says it's either a BCP install or ODBC issue. Re-installed everything, same result. Would anybody have a clue?
