Can't edit story in Word (Pub 2000)

I have Office 2000 SB Edition, running on Windows 98 SE.

When I am using Publisher 2000, and want to "Edit Story in Word" I get
an error message. It says it can't connect with Word, and to "close
other applications or free up memory", or to "reinstall the OLE

I don't have any other applications running, and I have lots of free
memory. I don't know what the OLE server is, or how to reinstall it.
Can anyone help please?

I have Office 2000 SB Edition running on Windows XP on another
machine, and I do not get this problem  there, just on the Windows 98

Thanks, Jeremy

Thanks to an earlier post from Ed Bennett, I have found the solution
to my problem. I turned off script blocking in Norton AntiVirus, and
now Publisher and Word work together nicely.

Thanks Ed!

Exchange 2000 OWA Upgrade
We have an existing Exchange 5.5 OWA server running on Windows 2000 SP4. We are planning an upgrade to Exchange 2000, is there an upgrade path for OWA or do we uninstall the existing installation of OWA and install the new Exchange 2000 OWA? TIA You can simply upgrade that Exchange 5.5 server to Exchange 2000. Owa is not an optional component in Exchange 2000 and installs only when you install the core Exchange 2000 components. Once you've upgraded the server, make it a front-end server (if it IS NOT going to host mailboxes) so that it will serve up the mailboxes rather than redire...

Improving legibility of word 2007 ribbon
My eyesight is somewhat poor. The font on the 07 ribbon is small and appears not to be a true black. Is there a way (besides changing the screen resolution on my monitor) to improve any of this?

Outlook 2000 (CW) Duplicate Messages in Inbox
We have a recurring problem with a specific user where she has some duplicate (and triplicate) messages in her Inbox. We CANNOT see them on the Exchange 5.5 side. Not all messages are duplicated.

Outlook 2000 printouts not obeying margins, letters cut off on left
Hello, I'm having a problem printing certain messages in Outlook 2000. I can't pinpoint the condition for the problem occuring, but it does seem to occur most often on fowarded messages to me. If I do a print preview on the message, it looks just fine -- with .5 inch margins on all sides. But if I print the message, it comes out with (what looks to be) less than 1/4 inch margins that cut off part of the leftmost characters. This happens on multiple printers, and only in this application. I have tried to reinstall the printer/print drivers. - Jared ...

MS SPLA Dynamics CRM Service Provider Edition 4.0 (QHH-00002)
OK, The Microsoft site indicates there are only three editions for CRM 4.0 with 90-day trial keys; however, our SPLA software provider has the media for the edition mentioned in the subject line. We've been told that the SPLA VLK edition of CRM 4.0 wouldn't ship till Feb. 1. We've also been told that the VLK is built into these particular binaries. Can someone clarify which edition a Service Provider needs to run in order to host CRM as a MS partner? I'm assuming this is the correct edition, however my only concern are the license keys.

How to Copy Outlook messages into Word?
I have been asked to supply the contents of an Inbox in some sort of document form. In other words, they want multiple messages as they appear in the reading pane, in a document. I am wondering if the messages in our Outlook 2003 clients can be 'copied' into Word 2003, but not as links, but the full e-mail text. If this is possible in notepad or wordpad, that will work as well. Hope this makes sense, and much appreciation in advance. Aloha Jim, Approx how many messages are we talking about?

Editing external data via ODBC
Hi, I'm in the process of transitioning an excel/access (2003) based solution to a web-based one. Right now, we have a dozen or so separate spreadsheets and a couple of access databases that get updated several times a day. I've managed to import most of the data into a mysql db which I've tried to normalize as much as possible. This will be the backend db for the webapp. I've set up an ODBC connection from excel to the db and it works like a charm; a few query tweaks and I can reproduce the data from all the separate spreadsheets. But now, how about going the other way? ...
