How do I stop my movie playing with sound but appearing black?

I have followed all instructions in insering a .AVI movie into a Powerpoint 
presentation yet when I start the slideshow the sound plays perfectly but the 
screen remains black for the duration - there are no images or movie scenes.

Try:
Delete the existing vid
Put the presentation in a folder with a short path (c:\ppts\ maybe)
Put the vid in the same folder and re insert.

If it's still black you probably don't have the correct codec installed

Getting Solid Black Boxes with Boarders on Text Boxes
Help! We just installed Publisher 2002, running on XP. When I pulled up a document that printed fine prior to the new version of Publisher being installed, the text box that I have with a border line around it looks fine until I print it out...then the box totally fills in with black. Is this a Publisher problem or a printer problem? How do I remedy this? Any suggestions?? Thanks Strange. This will be caused by a printer driver issue.

How do I stop printing a header after the third page?
I have selected the row header to print for pages one and two but I don't want it to print on subsequent pages. How do I make this happen? The bad news is that if you don't include the rows to repeat at top, then more stuff can be printed on each page. For instance, in my test data, I set it up to use rows 1:2 as rows to repeat at top. I didn't add any manual page breaks. Page 1 showed 1:2 and 3:52 (52 rows) Page 2 showed 1:2 and 53:102 (still 52 rows) I removed those rows to repeat at top and tried to print pages 3-??? But excel figures that without the header, more rows ...

Contact Forms appearing in emails!
It seems there is a serious glitch in Outlook 2003 when it come to creating forms. After publishing a custom address form into the Contact folder, Outlook suddenly imbedded the custom contact form in every email I have received for the past two years. In other words, when you try to preview an incoming email in the reading pane, instead of the usual view, you see the first page of a standard Contact form with the body of the email imbedded in the Notes section of the form. And this has happened three times in the past week, for no apparent reason. The last time, I was simply adding a ne...

Error bars plot black triangles
In Excel 2007, when I try to plot vertical error bars on a chart with no zero or negative values it gives me the standard error that "Negative or zero values cannot be plotted correctly on log charts." Then when it actually graphs the data there are strange black triangles stretching across the chart that should not be there. I know that if I uncheck the "logarithmic" box it will show correctly, but the x-axis needs to be logarithmic for this to work for what I need. There is another thread here that I am aware of but the solution that worked for that person did no...

How do I stop WMP adding files to its library?
Sorry, posted this first in Windows Media, realised it was the wrong forum. XP Pro I do not want WMP to search for or add file to its library, either when I play them or for it to search for them. iTunes is my default audio player. I have gone into More Options and told it to Ignore most folders but I cannot get an option to ignore the RIP folder in My Music As far as I know, WMP will always monitor the Rip Music folder and there's no way to disable this. The best you can probably do is change the Rip location to a dummy, empty folder. Regards -- Tim De Baets ...

I am making a spreadsheet to do simple arithmetic for pupils at my school. The sum is displayed and the pupil has to put in the correct answer. If the correct answer is given 'Correct' is displayed and if the an incorrect answer is given 'Try Again' is displayed.

Can't Stop Mail going into Junk-Email Folder
In Safety Options, I have selected the "Do not Filter Junk E-Mail" option. Yet, mail keeps going there. None of this mail is from senders on the "Blocked Senders" list. What am I missing? Two other potentials, your antivirus program may be filtering email, and gmail may be filtering email. Have you looked at the settings in those places? FYI - you don't really need antivirus email scanning anyway. It is a redundant layer of scanning that often causes problems. Email is just a file, and it will be scanned by the normal file scanning processes ...

Type a number and data appears from another sheet
I have a document that lists volunteers and their personal info (name, email, phone etc.) with the Week number (1-5) of the Sunday when they help out. Some volunteers are in age group K-2nd and the others are in 3rd-5th. What I am doing at the moment is sorting by Week number and then filtering by week number (e.g. 2 for the second Sunday of the month). I then copy that information to another sheet in the same workbook. What I would like to do is just type a week number e.g. 2 in A1 of "This Week" sheet and then somehow *magically* have all the people from both K-2nd and 3rd...

Cell fill colors don't appear to work...
Odd thing here and I hope it's very simple. I use color fills for certain cells in my spreadsheet. Cells with figures below goal have a red background, while cells with figures above goal have a green background. This is not the case. The numbers in these cells take on the color that I want the who cell to be (red or green) while the background remains white.
