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
My guess: Because the file extension was .doc and the default file format in
Word 2007 is .docx

I have a very strange problem,
we have a network with exchange server, and outlook 2002
where the users work mostly offline, and syncronize their
OST's every 15 min. One user when attempting to drag and
drop a mail item from his "sent items" folder to another
folder, the "From:" field (which should contain his name)
of the receiving folder remains blank.If he works online
that doesn't happen. That only happens with his name, and
only with his account. The other user don't have that
problem. I'm out of ideas, help please!

Have you tried right-clicking the folder, choosing "Properties", and
checking the "Hidden" checkbox?

I have just installed Outlookfolders product as found at

workstation also. Using Outlook beta 2.
After fiddling with some settings, I got an error.
Now, when I try to open Outlook 2003 beta, I get the following message:

The set of folders could not be opened. The server is not available. Contact
your administrator if this condition persists.
Well, I am the administrator!
Looks like it is trying to find folders on the Server and cannot see them.

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

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.

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.
