2007 Outlook will not Open
I am running MS Office Basic 2007, on xp system
Outlook has been working fine until yesterday, now I can not get into it.
When I click to open it - I get the following message -
Outlook failed to start correctly last time. Starting Outlook in safe mode
will help you correct or isolate a startup problem in order to successfully
start the program.
Some functionality may be disabled in this mode.
Do you want to start in safe mode?
When I click yes I get a message that says:

I have been for a few months using office. I normally would send or print or
export a file to word to edit the appearance before printing. I worked just
fine. Just 2 or 3 days ago when I export the file Access shuts down and I
get no message. After I restart it wants to run diagnostics but finds no
problems with Access. I have tried with different files and nothing, it
shuts down with any file.
Any ideas? Thank you in advanced

We use Access for our mailing list and just today we encountered a problem.
Every time we make a change in design view (no one else is in of course) and

Only The computer who made the change will.
Computer A Makes change, closes.
Computer B Cannot open form, only Computer A.
Computer B now makes a change

The most recent computer to make a change in the database on our server now
is the only one that can open the form.

I am used to using Office 2000 and have a spreadsheet that I don't know
where to find a couple of thing, i wonder if someone could point me in
the right direction.
1. I have some macros / visual basic where I normally just drag the
modules into the newly created spreadsheet. Where can I find these on 2007?
2. I want to make the workbook smaller so I can see more cells, sort of
zoom out as it where, what button does this?

Microsoft Office Basic 2007, XP on a Dell Vostro 1700. After running

and re-installed a few times including 'updating' without success. Will
not run in computer safe mode or program safe mode. Message - A data
file did not close properly and is being checked for problems.

When automatically recording macro actions around formula-driven conditional
formatting, the recorder does not properly take into account Excel 2007's
ability to re-order conditional formatting rules.
For example, if one enters three rules to be sequentially applied to a
range, the recorder will (usually) create the VBA code that matches the
intended ordering. However, if the user re-sequences the order, the macro
recorder is not able to adjust the VBA code to meet the new requirements. It
took me awhile to figure out why the automatic code wasn't working.

...Outlook 2007 start problem
We have several users that cant open their Outlook 2007 on an Exchange 2007
server. No error message, just a yellow screen. Outlook web access is
working, so I dont think its a server problem. I tried many switches
(firstrun, resetnavpane etc), delete and recreate profile, nothing works.
Any idea someone ?
We gave the users admin rights on their desktop and Outlook is working
normally. So there is probably someone who changed a security setting with
gpo and that change affected outlook.

This is really a minor suggestion - it would be great if when I opted to
look at Contacts 'By Category', that all the groups were in a closed postion
.... or if I had the option to expand or compress all.
That's it. Thanks, DH

I would like to be able to zoom to a specific point on a page without having

cursor to a "Zoom Tool" and then drawing around the exact area I wish to see

Is there a way to set up a dummy Outlook account so that a user can share a
calendar by syncing from a PDA? Our new principal has an Outlook icon on
her desktop that does not connect to any mail server and she uses that for
her calendar. She wants to set up the same scenario on the secretary's
computer. Our company email is on an Exchange Server but she does not want
the calendar on the network, nor does she want to share the desktop. I have
looked at using profiles but that requires shutting down the secretary's
exchange login, which is not acceptable. Any ideas?

...Group And outline Settings in 2007
In Excel 2003, you could change the Group and Outline Settings so that
the Top Row is what is grouped, based on the detail below.
However, in 2007, that option doesn't seem to be available.
Is there a workaround for this, by chance?
Thanks for any suggestions.
