Printing in MS Publisher 2003

I support a department that uses Publisher to create its monthly calendar.  
The secretary creates the base calendar, then e-mails it to the department 
members for them to add their own events.

The secretary has a network printer as her default.  The department members 
have local printers as their default (in fact, two users only have one 
printer configured in their respective "Printers and Faxes").

The two users in question print the calendar, after saving it to their local 
machine, and it prints to the secretary's network printer.  Mousing over the 
print icon in the toolbar of Publisher with the calendar open shows the 
network printer address, not the local printer, for both users.

Even trying to File->print, and select printer,  sends the file to the 
network printer for the users.

How can I help my users print this calendar to their local printer?

Is the local printer listed and selected in the print dialog?

Yes, the local printer appears in the print dialog - and only the local 
printer - the network printer does not appear.

That's what's so baffling - two users have only a local printer configured, 
yet when they try to print, it goes to a network printer.

Hi the problem I suspect you have is related to Office Service Pack 2, if you 
go to file>page setup>printer and paper you will no doubt see the printer you 
wish to print to -  click OK and this will change the printer icon to the 
local printer. Be aware that this setting has been written to the document 
when you save it and therfore would need to be changed back when you want to 
print to the network printer

Lost admin password of Windows 2003 Server DC
Hi, A client called me to restore access to their Windows 2003 Server acting as a DC whose Administrators' passwords have been lost. Nobody can now log into the server.

There are lots of utilities that you can download and run from a bootable CD and clear out the passwords.

Disclaimers and Exchange 2003
Is there a way to add a disclaimer message to the bottom of all outgoing emails. Im using Exchange 2003. I know there are 3rd party tools, but you'd think it would be a feature built into EX2003. My clients use Outlook XP to send/receive emails. I suppose I could make it part of their signatures, but a user could delete or modify this setting. Download the trial version of GFI Mail Essentials which allows one disclaimer while unregistered, and continues to work when the trail period is over. P.S.

Outlook 2003 sent items gone
I have a user that is on Outlook 2003 and she was connected through the Exchange Server we have at corporate, but after a recent migration to another Exchange Server up there I was having a problem getting her connected to it properly.

Report from Access 2003 to 2007 problem

This works ok in 2003 but comes up as #Error in 2007 in the report generated. In 2007 report design, the text box has a green triangle on it indicating an error "Invalid Control Property: Control Source" & "No such field in t...

TCP/IP printing

Probably a better question to ask a networking forum but hey. Thanks can you access the printer through the printer IP address? -- ashvin :D Just chill -pls post your feedback on...

How do I stop my Publisher 2003 document from saving as a webpag.
