Why do I get "Publisher cannot open that file" on all files I sav.
All the new files I save, and previous files I created, I can't re-open again
after saving them. I re-installed the program again, it was no help. I'm
using Publisher 2003. I made sure it is saving them as "Publisher files".
Are you on a PC?
If so, locate the folder all your .PUB files are in.
Right click on one of the *.pub files, click on open with, and see if
the Publisher icon shows up. If not, find your way to the MSPUB.EXE file
and tell your PC to use that file to open up your *.pub programs. See if
that works first. If not.....you may be doomed...OST file location bug
Here's how to bring Outlook 2003 to its knees:
1. Configure Outlook 2003 to use Cached Exchange Mode. Use the default
location for the OST file, and roaming profiles.
2. Allow a user to log on at a dozen or so computers.
3. Have the user get married, take her husband's last name, and request that
her user name be changed to reflect this.
4. Watch the fun that ensues every time she tries to run Outlook 2003 on a
computer she didn't log onto while single, when Outlook looks for her OST
file in C:\Documents and Settings\<MaidenName>\Local Settings\Application

I recall that previous versions of Access were smart enough to capitalize the
first letter of each sentence when adding information to a memo field but
Access 2007 is incapable of this. Is it possible to accomplish this task in
an easy manner. Some of you may suggest using "Autocorrect" but it just don't
work. Try adding text in a memo field and you will see. Type a work and end
with a period. Begin a new sentence and as soon as you press the space bar
the previous word will be capitalized.
Again, any suggestions how to do this?

In a magazine article that I read, it said that when moving from Outlook 2002 or
earlier to Outlook 2003, you should convert the file to the new format that is

BTW. I don't want to loose all of the documents and setting that are already
associated with the current file

2) search for a particular text string, for e.g., ABCD in all the

vary and so does the names of the files). Is it possible to specify
