Can't use Word to Reply or Forward

If I try to Reply or Forward and e-mail while Word is set as my editor, the 
attempt results in a message about Word being unavailable or the wrong 
version.  If I create a new e-mail with Word and  type in an explicit e-mail 
address in the TO or CC fields, it works fine and sends the e-mail to the 
entered addresses.  But if I use the TO... button to pop up the list of 
contacts, then select a contact and click OK, Word gives me an error "No 
such interface exists" and doesn't return the addresses.

It was working fine Tuesday afternoon, but was broken the next time I used 
it on Friday morning.  I needed to get some more disk space back, so between 
those times I had uninstalled a few programs such as several old versions of 
Sun's Java, a couple audio editors I never used and a few other similarly 
unrelated software.  I also retrieved about 1.5 GB by deleting files that 
were older than one month  in various TEMP folders and deleting some Windows 
Update uninstall folders older than 2 months.

Word is version 11.8106.8107 and Outlook is 11.8010.8107 under Office 2003 

I have tried all the suggestions I could Google.  I tried all the applicable 
suggestions in KB 906307.  I tried running the "Detect and Repair" facility 
from both the Outlook and Word menus.  I tried running the Repair 
installation from "Add and Remove Programs".  I tried re-registering 
ole32.dll.  In desperation I even tried reregistering every DLL in SYSTEM32 
as one poster suggested.

I tried creating a new profile and using that, even removing my original 
profile. (I'm using Exchange Server, so it wasn't hard.)

I have uninstalled and reinstalled Office Professional five times.  The 
second time I uninstalled Office Meeting and never reinstalled it.  The last 
four times I uninstalled and reinstalled Visio and FrontPage as well as 
Office Professional.  I checked the status of the problem after initial 
installation, after applying Office SP2 and after installing each of two
batches of updates from Microsoft Update.  The problem was always there.

The last two times I uninstalled, I ran the Windows Installer CleanUp 
Utility, but could not find any Office stuff to clean up.

The last time I uninstalled, I also renamed the "C:\Program Files\Microsoft 
Office" to something else and deleted the registry keys and subkeys for 
"HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office" and "HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office" as 

I have a nearly identical setup running on my laptop without any problems. 
I created a program to compare registry dumps for the above Office registry 
keys and could not find any differences that looked remotely like it might 
have something to do with the problem.

Short of formatting the HD and reinstalling Windows XP, which would take 
about two weeks to get back up with all my applications, what else can be 
done?  I have spent about 30 hours on this so far and am beginning to get a 
little testy!

I am a veteran software developer (> 30 yrs.) and will boldly go where I 
haven't yet been if KNOWLEDGEABLE people can make intelligent suggestions, 
but I have to earn a living and can't make a second career of this.  I like 
using Word as my editor, but...

Please reply to the group as will not get to me.

converting tabular structures in a Word document into an actual table or reading data from the tabular structures using VBA code
I have a macro which can read the last cell/column of all tables in a Word 2003/2007 document and store the data in an MS-Access table. But, some Word documents have the data in structures like a table format but are not actually tables. The structure looks like a table, but the table borders are actually line connectors. These documents were created by a software(VeryPDF PDF to Word converter) which converted the PDF documents(the original format these documents were) into Word documents. 1.

How do I convert a word table into an excel document?
I have managed to get the info accross no problem but the formatting is all over the place. For instance - 07/10 meaning July 2010 is appearing as 07/Oct despite me going into format cells custom then enter mm/yy which has always worked previously. Any ideas? You can't use it like that regardless of formatting, you need to put in the whole date or else Excel will always assume the current year so any real date used for calculations needs to be numeric and needs a day, so you can enter (assuming US date format) 07/01/10 and use a custom format of mm/yy or if you don't need it for...

copy does not work in word 2003
I can't seem to copy from word 2003. I select text but it won't take it. I can copy from an e-mail and paste into word, but word doesn't seem to want to copy, either from one word document to another or into my e-mail. It's been working fine for almost four years, it just acted up. Any suggestions? The usual reason is some third party add-in that is messing with the Office clipboard.

Not using zeros in graphing.
I have a running workbook that has tons of information. I have added a sum page in order to have all the data summed up in one simple place. I have formulas that read back into the workbook to link to a cell. Depending on what moth it is, that cell could be empty as it is a yearly wookbook. For example, if this is August, then there is information in the workbook up to August, but none after. With that said, the sum page has the #DIV/0! in the cell which essentially equals zero. I also have graphs that I have linked to this sum page. My problem is in order to keep the graphs up to...

Using "fixed" decimal place function data for charts
Is there a way to graph data which utilizes the "fixed" function for decimal places? When I try this it will not graph, as the data has become text or something - even though I've selected number in the cell formats. If you've fixed the number of digits using only number formats, the values remain numeric, and they should chart just fine. This means selecting the range, going to the Formatting menu and selecting Cells, and on the Number tab, selecting Number in the category list, and setting a number of digits. I'm not familiar with a "fixed function". I...
