You may have a corrupted outcmd.dat file, which is the file that stores your
toolbar customizations. Try renaming or deleting your outcmd.dat file while
Outlook is closed. Renaming it might be the best idea if you have a lot of
customizations that you'd prefer not to lose; that way if renaming the file
doesn't solve your problem, you may be able to restore it later whe...Publisher's catalogue options

When I don't want to choose that design, I must close down Publisher to

In the catalogue task pane, click "Publication Designs." Or file, new... you wouldn't
have to close Publisher. In Publisher 2000, click "Design" in the task pane

Is there any reason I shouldn't change the option to allow users to change
their password from OWA? Microsoft must have had a reason to not make it
available by default.
It isn't available by default beause SSL is required by default in order to
be able to change passwords. Since SSL cannot be enabled until you have
installed a certificate, it makes sense to not have the ability to change
passwords via OWA on by default, right?

First, you must reinstall Office.

When I open Excel 2003 the splash screen hangs for 30 seconds to about a

All other office programs such as Word etc open quickly and behave normally.
If Excel is opened in safe mode , the program opens rapidly without any
splash screen at all.
Any explanations and indeed a cure for this behaviour ?
When you open excel in safe mode, you're not opening the addins or stuff in your

Thought this might be interesting. I have just heard that Scribe have added
a new licensing option. Currently they have a perpetual license for 3995
and a 90-day "migrate" license for 995. Now, they have added a 45-day
"migrate" license for 495!
This is a great option for an initial data load - now, you can use an
evaluation version to design and test your data import and then just get the
45-day license to perform it. Excellent for cost-concious sites.
P.S. I don't work for Scribe!

It's based on Server 2008 R2. A small note on my desktop just above the
