How do you stop run-away scrolling in Word?

When I start to scroll through a document in Word or PDF, something takes 
over and scrolling will not stop until 1) the end of the document or 2) I hit 
"abort" (Control, alt, delete) and get out of the document. What can I do to 
get control over this scrolling? Really frustrating!

I doubt that it is a Word problem. How are you trying to scroll and what are 
you using: mouse, mouse wheel, touchpad?

Have you changed the mouse settings through the Control Panel, MOUSE app?

open encrypted word 2003 file with word 2007
Word 2007 will not let me open Word 2003 files that are encrypted. Does anyone know how to fix this? What version of Word 2007? There were some issues with SP2 (and/or a security patch) but I can't recall the details off the top of my head. There was a hotfix which caused more problems, and ultimately another hotfix - number 970924. If this isn't your situation (and I'm not sure even this affected encrypted 2003 format documents), I have not heard of anything else. Are you sure you have the correct password? -- Enjoy, Tony "K...

Edit Legend Wording
I've been trying to alter the wording of the legend text in my line graphs, but can't figure it out. My data table has headings such as "Year", "Communication Score", and "Professional Score".

Error After Multiple Runs
This is a follow-up: My dialog-based app seems to crash after it is used some 50 times in a row. The error message is something like: A required resource was unavailable.

images with word automation
Access 2003 (2000 format) I've done quite a bit of Word automation from Access to build forms for clients but I'm stumped.

Hold shift to stop Auto_Open() not working in 2007

Now that my primary machine has 2007 on it, I find that I cannot prevent the Auto_Open macro from running by holding the shift key down when opening the files. I know in 2003 if you set the macro security level to low the shift key stops working. However, I’ve tried changing several settings in the Trust Center (such as trusting the files’ location) but to no avail. I also know that if I leave the location untrusted it will allow me to not run the macro, but if I then ...
