You have to install it in the operating system in question to be able to 
run it. Accessing an installation that is installed in a different 
operating system can not be used without reinstalling so the registry 
entries and other files needed are in the required locations.

My bet is that it was only installed in XP and then he is attempting to 
run the installation from that partition.

Publisher 2003 #28
How do I make text automatically flow to subsequent pages when I need to insert a picture into a page that is already filled. The text boxes have to be linked.

Access 2002-2003 not accessible by Access 2002
I have Office 2003 and I created database using 2002-2003 file format.I spit front end and back end. make an mde file. However, when I give this mde file to people with office XP, their access 2002 cannot open my mde file saying it's not correct version. (strange). then, i convert my database to 2000 file format, but i cannot make mde. what did I do wrong? thanks. Unfortunately, you must create the MDE in the same version of Access that the user has.

Hi All, I created a database to keep track of workshop sales. I am trying to create a form with fields from 2 tables. The subform is the part that is giving me the problem.

Outlook 2003 Freezes when opened
My Outlook 2003 freezes upon opening. My most recent email which Outlook defaults to doesn't get the chance to be fully visible. I can't go into menu options to check for settings. Each time I open it up I have to CTL+SFT+DEL to get out of it. It only started this morning after working fine for months. My Outlook.pst file is 138mb, so not too big. Additionally, I can't open a web page until I have shut Outlook down, as IE hangs. I have saved my Outlook.pst file in case I have to delete thn re-install Outlook.

When I've been working on entries, she is not able to open the database. She claims that with her previous assistant, they were both able to be on the database at the same time, and thinks that the fact that I have several applications (Word, Firefox, Outlook...etc) open at the same time is ...

Huge File size
This issue started as an excessive e-mail size for just text, but seems to be more of a HTML problem. When using Outlook 2000, using Word as the e-mail editor, writing a simple e-mail in HTML format with a few colors of text, (no graphics or attachments) the e-mail file size becomes either 32MB or 44MB in size. (Yes, Megabyte) When the text is cut and pasted into Word, and saved as a "doc" file, the file size is very small, when re-pasted into a new e-mail, the size increases again. Acting on an earlier response, I found the following... E-mail file size = 44Mb, yes Megab...

having 2 accounts in outlook 2003 and deciding which one to send as
Hi, I have 2 accounts in outlook 2003. One is my exchange work account and the other is my home account. When I send e-mails, I would like to choose which account I can send from. I think Outlook Express has this feature, does Outlook 2003 have it? Thanks. Yes, it is the Accounts button.

Slow Printing w/ Publisher 2003
I have a user printing a document with a size of 1.6 MB. When she sends the job to a network printer (HP LaserJet 4550C) it prints VERY slowly. It will print a page, then pause, and then print another. I had this problem once before on the same model printer, in that case it had a low toner message for yellow so I changed the cartridge and I was back in business. This printer does not have a low toner message, but her magenta is at 8%. Is this a problem with Publisher? She can print at regular speed when printing from any other application. Any ideas for me??
