Receiveing a Microsoft Document in Word

Hi Guys

Recently I was sent a word document by a colleague that contained
algebraic equations. Upon receiving the document I noticed that it had
black boxes where the equations would be instead of the equations. I
have Microsoft Office for Mac on my Powerbook.Fortunately I also have
VirtualPC on my Powerbook with Office Professional also installed for
emergencies. I was able to access the document properly that way. The
question I have is what might have caused this and can I correct this
problem. I was under the impression that with Office for Mac these
problems would be eliminated.

received date in saved items
Weekly I forward messages from work to my home e-mail address. When I used Outlook Express, messages that were moved from my inbox to my saved item folder would retain the original message date. Now in Outlook 2003, I am getting the date when I forwarded the message, not the original date. How can I retain the original date? Sorry, I wasn't really clear - I attach the e-mail messages to a cover e-mail. When I move the ATTACHED messages, they don't show the original date. They show the date of the cover e-mail.

Receiving Transaction Entry #3
Client is getting a "You cannot change the PURCH account at the sumary level. Change the inventory account for the line item instead" message when trying to change distributions in the Receivings Transaction Entry. I saw the KB article explaining why this was changed and what to do about it but it doesn't explain what to do if you have multiple accounts to be distributed. Not to mention what to do about changing the amounts. If you change the amount at the item level, it then changes the amount for the accounts payable account.

Major file bloating in Word97, is it fixed in Word 2003
I needed to do a document and also prepare a PowerPoint for use on a laptop. unfortunately, due to Murphy's Law, the only laptop I have in working order at the moment is an ancient Windows 98 system with Office 97 that I haven't used in years. I thought it might be easier to prepare the stuff in Office97 rather than worry about accidentally using something that would make my document incompatible.

how do I insert text in a word document converted by
I scanned a document into word2007, but in order to edit it, had to convert to pdf and then reconvert from pdf to word via the site. This was supposed to allow me to insert text, but I can't. What am I not doing? Did your scanning process did some kind of OCR or did it turn out a tiff or jpeg? To me it sounds as if you just scanned in the thing as an image (tiff, jpeg, ....), which you then put in a pdf. Converting the pdf back to Word wouldn't give you the text but once again the image.

My word documents suddenly hide all text...what to do?
All of my word documents now appear blank. However I can select and copy into another document -- as long as it isn't into another word document. Additionally outlook now can't use word as its editor. Is the software corrupted or did I inadvertently change a setting? It sounds as though your normal style has been formatted with the text coloured white, and that you have the automatically update styles option set in the style dialog. Only Outlook versions up to 2003 can use the matching Word version as editor. (Word 2007/10 have their own Word-like editors). This is ...
