Two users on a network editing documents simultaneously in word 20

My office just upgraded from Word 2003 to Word 2007. We are on a network and 
share access to Word files.  In Word 2003, if one user tried to open a file 
in which another user was working, a message would appear stating that the 
file was "locked for editing by (user)." It seems that with Word 2007, any 
user can open a file (and edit it) while another user is doing so as well.  
We do not want this to be the case, and just want the settings to be as they 
were with Word 2003 (i.e. if a document is in use, another user cannot access 
it simultaneously).  Ideally, we'd like to again get the "locked for editing" 
message when this occurrs. 

Thank you.

assembly documents need to have an order form to print
When an assembly entry is made it should have a print out to be given to the person who will assemble the bill of materials that can be signed when completed. Each assembly should be able to be printed alone - not just in a batch. It should list how many finished products should be made and what each finished product would contain. These can then be posted when they are completed. Also, there should be one function that checks all existing assembly documents that are not released to see if they now can be released with a report telling which ones have been changed to released - i...

Changed user in AD, but can't change in CRM 3
Hello, I've got CRM 3 on SBS 2003, I just had a one person leave and a replacement come in. So I have renamed the account in AD, and thats working fine. But I cant change/delete the original account in CRM. I cant add the new persons account. When I try to add the new person, CRM seems to look in AD and says the account is already in use. Possibly a problem with the SID ? Anyone found a way around this, or come across it before? And I disabled the original account, and still could not add the new person. The following post discusses the situation... http://www.microsoft.com/Bus...

Mail-Enabled User Not Appearing on GAL
Hello folks I have a strange problem. We are using Win2K3Ent and Exch2k3Ent, with the latest service packs and hotfixes installed (that I know of). I am trying to create a mail-enabled user (internal user on the GAL which actually forwards to an SMTP email address externally). I am under the impression that once created, this user should appear for all clients in the GAL (this seems to be confirmed by 70-284 text). I create the mail-enabled user in Exchange Tasks, establish an email address without incident. But no matter what I try, the user will not appear in the GAL. If I do a ...

Difference between two dates?
I'm sure this is easy for someone who understands Excel (not me) but I can't figure it out. I want to take two dates, a start date and an end date and get the number of days elapsed. I also want to enter the dates quickly, as in 070808 for 07/08/08 (not having to enter the dashes). I have tried 00\/00\/00 and ##"/"##"/"## in the cells format, number, custom. Trying those formats, entering 070808 in A1, and 070809 for A2 and finally in A3 =DATEDIF(A1,B1,"d") to get the difference in days. What I get is 1 day instead of 365 days. So it's thinkin...

Retain formating from outlook email into word document?
As you can obviously tell from the script, I don't do this for a living. The script takes the contents of an existing email in outlook, removes some stuff from the header and then writes it to a new MS Word document. It is working. The next step is to get it to preserve the HTML formatting of the original email message. I tried Changing "$messagebody = $m.body" and "$selection.TypeText($wordcontent[1])" to "$messagebody = $m.htmlbody" and $selection.TypeText($messagebody)" but it didn't work.

Document belongs to another account
We are on GP 8.0, SP5. When posting a batch in SOP we are receiving this error: AccessDeniedError: Document belongs to another account. There is only one document in the batch and I can find nothing wrong with it. The document will not post. It does not go to batch recovery. It has many serial numbers attached to it so we really don't want to delete it. Any ideas of what could be wrong with it or how to fix it? Not that I doubt you exactly but are you sure that is the exact error message? It just doesn't seem quite like a normal GP error message. If you print an edit l...
