weird symbol instead of comma in address?

I have Office 2007 and I am using the Publisher with the mail merge to 
populate the addresses in thank-you cards to be mailed out.  The only 
problem is that the comma between the city and state does not look like a 
comma but a small right triangle without the hypotenuse.  What do I need to 
do for the comma to appear correctly in the address?

Are you using a decorative font? I can't duplicate your issue. Is the comma in 
the city field or are you manually adding it? Personally I don't use the comma 
any longer.

I just type in a , and it appears like a -| only the | does not extend up 
and is joined.  I move the <<City>>,<<State>> to the address line in the 
merge and I type the comma , but it appears as that -| thing.  I thought 
maybe if I actually printed it on paper, maybe it would appear correctly. 
But it still printed the same way. I will try a different font to see. I did 
not think I was using anything unusual.

It was the font.  Don't know how I picked that one?
Thanks.

Weird Opening Document
Using Windows XP and Office 2007 I just received a Word 2003 document as an email attachment. When I opened the attachment, it launched Word 2003 on my system. Although Office 2003 still resides on my system, I am using Office 2007. I have received 2003 Word documents as email attachments before, and when I open the attachment it always launches Word 2007. Any idea what would cause an email attachment to launch Word 2003 this time??? My guess: Because the file extension was .doc and the default file format in Word 2007 is .docx Daddy "BK" <nosp...

Address Book Problem #5
I just copied my contact folder from my lap top to my desk top PC. Both have Outlook 2002. I have the names sorted last name first in my laptop. When sending a new e-mail, I select a name from the contact list, sorted in the same order. But, when I imported the same file to my desk top PC, the names are still sorted correctly (last name first) in Contacts but, when sending a new e-mail the names seem to have been resorted first name first. Upon reopening the contact list, everything is still sorted as I had intended. How can I get these 2 lists in sync? Thanks! Dale You did not cl...

Hiding Personal Employee Information in Address Book
First off the environment is Exchange 2003 SP1 with Active Directory 2003. Basically... our HR department was granted limited access to AD to fill in user information (Home address, telephone, etc...) and I then modified the default user ACL so that any member of "Group X" in AD was denied access to seeing the above personal information. This worked on the Global Address List as well.... But now there's a problem. We've been setting up users in Cached Mode, and those users are able to see everything. I believe this has to do with the fact that Exchange is generating t...

When I expand storage folders and try to scroll down to the last item and click on it, the list will jump up , it will frequently jump back up a couple of items, and I can't see the bottom of the list.

How to create address book view?
Exchange 2003 SP1 and Outlook 2003. I have 20,000+ objects in the GAL, and i'd like to be able to break this down into smaller chunks when users choose objects from the it. I can't use multiple GALs because a user can only see one GAL. For example, when a user is creating a new message in Outlook 2003, it would be be helpful is they could, in the address book, click the drop-down there the GAL is selected and select some other item that says, for example, "Marketing department" and see 1000 users instead of the whole GAL. So I understand that I might be able to use ...

Weird shifting
I have two odd things happening in my document that I don't *think* are related, but who knows...? I'm using Word 2007 and I have a template that I created specifically for this document. It is a very convoluted template based on obsolete military style guides that I have no say in. I have 7 heading levels and each heading level has numbered procedural steps. Each heading level indents one step from the next higher heading, so by the time I get to the highest heading level my left indent is about 3". Crazy, but like I said, I have no say in the format. Anyhoo... w...

Weird Spacing Problem
I have two users that when they type an email in CRM and then click Save, it adds about 15 to 20 line spaces at the top of the document. To test, I used the same Contact, clicked email, then Save and it didn't do it for me. But then I had him go in to that Contact and open the email I had just created and it immediately added 15-20 lines at the top (that he can't get rid of). If he sends the email it leaves the lines and appears like it's a big, blank email. Anyone seen anything like this? I thought at first maybe it was an OL 2003 thing because I'm still on 2000, but I t...

Weird Number Truncating
I am trying to create a spreadsheet for tracking items by barcode. Fo what ever reason, any number containing more than 15 numbers, exce changes all numbers after the 15th digit to zero.

Weird autoformat
We were just upgraded at work to Office 2002. I did not have this problem with earlier versions. I often enter text such as "A02-12" or "A01-03" into spreadsheets (this stands for Annealer 2, run 12 or Annealer 1, Run 3). However, now when I type it, for some reason Excel interprets that as a date with a very strange custom format. For example, A01-03, comes out look like a bunch of arabic with the number 3 after it. The format is B2d-mmm . If I change it to general format its the number 37686, which is the date March 6, 2003. Typing something like "B01-03&quo...

RUS updates addresses and default reply adress
Hi guys Im in a bigger migration from EX55 to EX2003 with several sites. Now RUS is updating all my mailboxes all the time. But this does happen only with one Recipient Policy (Site Policy, automaticly created during migration). This means he updates all the reply adresses. So if I switch a reply adress to a new one manually, he switches it back. Indication might be: We had some problems at the beginning with some fax gateway addresses in this site, which havent been properly removed, so RUS was not updating new mailboxes. So we removed those custom addresses in the exchange 5.5 enironment...
