When I start Outlook (2002) Microsoft Word also opens. I tried unchecking "use Microsoft Word to edit e-mail messages"
This stopped Microsoft Word from opening but I lost the ability to format any fonts and also to use the spell checker for outgoing e-mails.
Anyone have any ideas?

When you send an e-mail or receive one from outlook, by default it looks for the person in your contacts and puts the display name up instead.

But when reading the e-mail it displays

John Doe [mailto:[email protected]]
To: Jane Doe

How do you get rid of the mailto:etc,etc ??? I would prefer a hyperlink instead of the mailto because then it reveals the person's e-mail address.

I know you could just hover over it or click on the hyperlink to find out the e-mail, but I'm just asking for the purpose of printing. I don't want my e-mail address shown in a long stream of E-mail send's and replies between a friend when I print it.

If there is a setting in Outlook to turn this off, please let me know, I fooled around with everything and I cant get it to work.

A:PROBLEM: Microsoft Outlook 2000/2002/2003 E-Mail Display

Under "tools/options/prefrences/e-mail options/advanced e-mail options " You can select "automatic name checking" which I think will convert the mailto to a name if it is in the global address or contacts list. I don't know what that does to people you send to I would think it depends on their setting...

I have created in Microsoft Word 2003 on an XP OS some lengthy documents. I created them using a view setting of 150%.

I sent them to my employer, who is using Windows 98 and Microsoft Word 97. My boss opened them with his system and they displayed on the screen at a view of 200%. He wants me to send him Word documents that he can open from the CD-R that I send that will automatically display at 100% view on the screen so that he does not have to set the view for each document as it displays.

So what is the answer.

Is there a way that I can save my created documents so that when my boss gets them on a CD-R that they will open on his system at a view setting of 100%.

Is there also a way that his system can be set to default to 100% in reading from the CD-R.

My boss does not want to copy the documents to the system hard disk from my sent CD-R, preferring to read and copy directly from the CD-R that I send, so that the original documents will not accidentally be changed.

Any help would be appreciated.

When I go to run Microsoft Word it always starts with an old document I wrote a couple years ago. How do I fix this so I get the normal blank screen? When I click on new or blank screen the same document pops up.

A:Microsoft Word 2002

In Word, there is a default template that all new documents are based on. In your case it sounds like that template has accidentally been saved when the old document was created.

Easy to fix.
Close Word.
Using Start - Search, look for all occurrences of ""

Make sure you have enabled searching of hidden or system files.

If you do not find at least 1 instance of the file, you have not set the options correctly, it will exist.

When you find the file, delete it/them.

When Word next starts it will create a new clean "" file with standard default settings.
All you will lose is any specific default settings for Word that you have made, just redo them if you need to.

Vista Home Premium SP2

Secunia PSI tells me that Microsoft Word 2002 is insecure. Threat rating is category 4, HIGH! There is a Download Solution button provided, but I can't access anything when I click on it. Then I have the situation below and I wonder if that is the same item as this one in PSI.

Windows Update gives me an important update of 52.3 MB and it is Office XP Service Pack 3. I have tried to install this item 3 times. It runs to a certain point and then tells me that I have to insert the disk. My system is OEM and I don't have any disk. So what do I do?

A:What do I do with Microsoft Word 2002

Although not certain, I believe the two problems are related and actually are describing the same problem - the fact that the program is not fully updated.

Check out the following article: Service packs, updates, and security patches may require the Office XP CD-ROM. More information is here: Download details: Office XP Service Pack 3 (SP3).

But perhaps of greater importance, Word 2002 is not compatible with Vista: Windows Vista Compatibility Microsoft Microsoft Office Word 2002 and that may be part of the reason you are having troubles with it. You need to upgrade to a more recent version.

I hope this helps.

Good luck!

How do I delete a saved file in the document recovery task pane in Microsoft Word 2002. I have clicked on my documents and deleted it there. I have also clicked on more documents in the recovery task pane and deleted it there. When I right click on the saved doc. it says What's this. Please help.

A:Microsoft Word 2002

I have Word 2003 but I assume it's pretty much the same.

That list is populated based on what you see when you click on File in Word which shows the last documents that you opened (Recently used file list). Deleting a document doesn't remove it from the Task pane but you won't be able to access it since it no longer exists. All you need to do is open existing documents until that particular one no longer shows in the list.

If you don't want that many to show you can change it by clicking on Tools - Options - click on the General tab and change the number there.

Sometimes I get a "not enough disk space"

Microsoft says there is not enough disk space - as if a few gig is not enough space for a 4.5 mb word file.

Other hints.

The structure of the document is tracking status of hundreds of items, and hyperlinking among them.

I use Heading 2 for item title and headder 3 for status, so I can easily see problem and status in TOC.

Different folks have different tracking numbers for ths same item, and the same task will go through different phases. I have different sections in the document to handle this, and hyperlink, using heading 2 normally. I cut it and paste it in the new section, remove the heading feature and use it as a hyperlink back to the oringinal. Using ...hyperlinks.count, I count over 5000 of them, along with over 4000 ...fields.count.

Does not seem to be the problem.

I've been having this problem for a little while now. When it first occurred, I didn't think it was much of a big deal. I just assumed that it was a temporary problem and that it would eventually go away. Unfortunately, the problem hasn't gone away yet. It keeps occurring. It doesn't occur everyday, but it occurs every few days or so.Here's the problem: Sometimes, when I open Microsoft Word, it won't open. A box pops up telling me that the feature I am trying to use requires me to install it with my Microsoft Word installation CD. So whenever this problem occurs, I have to go get the Word CD and insert it into the CD-ROM drive and it installs whatever "feature" it says that needs to be used.I'm not sure what's causing this problem, but it is very annoying. I upgraded to Office XP SP3 and I also used the "Detect and Repair" feature from the Word Help menu, but none of this has seemed to help. Is anyone else having this issue with Microsoft Word 2002? Does anyone know what could possibly be causing this? I really would like to get this problem fixed permanently so that I won't have to keep having to get the installation CD. I also used the same installation disc to install it on my mom's computer, and it does the same thing on hers also.What can be done to fix this?(Moderator edit: post moved to more appropriate forum. jgw)

okay, i have another question that has stumped me and the company that wrote the NewsKing software, so i figured i'd ask it here.
we are using the most recent version of NewsKing here at the TV station (newsking is a piece of prompting/closed captioning/other assorted News related bits software), and whenever we restart the machines for any reason, newsking stops talking to MSWord 2002, or rather, the other stuff on the NewsKing toolbar stops working. What i mean by this is that the SOT inserts and other assorted News Script inserts stop working, like, you can insert them, but instead of them popping up teh dialoge box that they're supposed to, where you can edit how long the SOT is or how long the video rolls for or which anchor is speaking and so on, word inserts them and then autodeletes them because it appears to no longer be finding the data for how that inserted object, or whatever the NK software inserts are. >.<

i realize that this is a kind of specialized question, but since the newsking company can't seem to answer it i figured that someone out there in the huge community that makes up the Tech Support Guy forums, someone else might work at a small TV station with a tiny budget and may have found an answer to this particular question.

I opened up my Microsoft Word 2002 program and it informed me that I needed to install something with Microsoft Works Suite 2006 disc in order to run Word. This was the first time this has ever happened to me, and I didn't understand why it was happening. So I got the Works Suite 2006 disc with Microsoft Word 2002 on it, and I installed it. After I installed it, everything was fine, so I didn't think anything of it.

Well today, I ran the SAS scan on my mom's computer. There were only some adware tracking cookies on there, so I had SAS to remove them.

A little while later, my cousin opened up Microsoft Word on my mom's computer, and it also informed her that she needed to install something with Microsoft Works Suite 2006 disc with Word. So I came to the conclusion that it must have been the SAS scan that is causing this. I just started using the SAS scan days ago on my computer and my mom's computer, and suddenly this problem happens where I have to run the Works Suite disc and install something from it to install Word completely. This is weird and I don't know exactly what's causing it, but I am pretty sure that the SAS scan has something to do with it. Our Word programs didn't have this problem until after I ran the SAS scan.

Can anyone help me out with this? How can I prevent this from happening? I don't want to have to run the disc everytime I open up Word on our computers. What could possibly be causing this?

Hi everyone,

Sorry to bother you with this. I've been searching all day for a fix but has no success at all.

I've got Office 2002 installed on my new system. Previously had Office 2000 and things worked fine.

Since the install, Microsoft Word will not open .doc files when double-clicking on them from their file locations.

In fact, when I try to select Winword from the list of applications to use when attempting to open the file, it doesn't work at all. For some reason it will not come up in the recommended programs list.

The only documents that it will open with no problem are .rtf, which will open upon double-clicking.

However, when I open Word from the start menu (which works fine) I am then able to open the .doc documents from there -- which is infuriating!

Thank you for reading, and I'm hoping someone will have a good idea whats wrong.

Thanks again.

I don't know what I did, but I no longer have Word or Microsoft Words 7.0 or Microsoft Publisher on my computer.
These are the disks I have:

Microsoft Works Suite > 5 disks and MS Office XP and another one called Office XP Small business.
Can anyone tell me (step by step and easy for a dum-dum to understand) how to reinstall?

When I look in add/remove programs from the Control panel, MS Works 7.0 is gone as is Word 2002 as is Publisher. All the others in the Suite are there.
When I click on the desk top shortcuts or from the start menu, I get this popping up (see attachment) for Word and Publisher.

Thanks in advance

I have Microsoft OUtlook 2002 that I currently use.

I woiuld like to update to 2003, I have a full version. When I went to install it the message indicated that I could not install it because there was already a previous version on the computer.

I can't go into add / remove becuase it is part of Micosoft Office Small Business package. I am also worried that I will lose the old emails, calender and contact info.

What can all of you suggest. Also because I updated WOrd to 2003 OUtlook can't find WOrd for the email editor and I don't know how to specify where to look.

A:Updating Outlook 2002 to 2003

You should make regular backups of your Outlook data. It's all stored in a .PST file.

You can uninstall Outlook 2002 by going into Add/Remove Programs and selecting Office XP. There should be a Change button. You change the installed components and can remove Outlook by unchecking that application.

Hi, I recently signed up for Verizon DSL and was hoping to use MSN Premium for e-mail. I tried to install MSN Premium numerous times unsuccessfully; I called tech support and was told I would have to buy Microsoft Office 2002 or 2003 to use it (I am currently using Office 2000 with Windows XP). Does this sound right? Is it worth it to buy a newer version of Office for the MSN email? I hate the Verizon email system and am hoping MSN is better. Thanks!

On one of my users machines, I changed from Outlook express to Outlook 2003 to give some of the bennies of 2003. When I did, all of a sudden the text area has started double spacing. The message shows up on the receiver's end correctly with the proper background etc. The signature is proper.

This user sends the copy to herself to make sure it has gone out and when she receives it, the text is double spaced and the background that she has chosen ends up as an attachment. I have found a statement about the signature from MS Outlook that she needs to edit her signature putting in "Shift Enter" rather than regular "Enter". When she receives it back, is there a possibility that this is what is causing the double spacing?

I have a client who always seems to screw up her outlook MS word editor. I recently uninstalled and re-installed her office 2002. For some reason when she goes to forward or reply a message or even create a new msg. The box pops up saying opening word editor, and it just hangs and then finally says can not find word or word is busy at the moment. it is running in the processes in task manager. I ended that process several times and following the stated procedure as above. Eventually it started working again. A few hours later the same thing. I really don't have the time to re-install office 2002 again and i don't think that a detect and repair will help. DOes anyone have some ideas to fix this problem. Also she needs to use word as the editor and html. I also know that she has a problem of keeping several e-mail messages opened at the same time either creating new forwarding and replying. I think this is the problem to this whole situation, but the stubborn user doesn't think this is the case.

At work we use Microsoft Outlook 2002, and one of the computer techs set up a calendar to be shared amongst everyone in our building. I can find the calendar, and I can add it to favorites, but I can't get it to come up as my primary calendar when I cilck on "Calendar" under "Outlook Today" (the tree menu on the right).

How do I select this calendar to appear as my default calendar when I open up Outlook, instead of having to open it via favorites?

Thanks in advance for any help!

A:Microsoft Outlook 2002

Hi Steve.
As far as I know, you can't switch default calendars.
What you can do is add a new calendar which will appear side-by-side with your default calendar in the same window.
In Outlook, click File>New>Folder.
Give the calendar the name you want then select "Calendar Items" from the drop down menu in the "Folder Contains" box then click OK.
Next you'll have to map it to the new calendar's location.
Right click your new calendar and select properties.
Click the "Homepage" tab and use the "browse" button to the location of the new calendar, click OK.
When you open outlook today, click "Calendar" like you normally would. You will see the new calendar you created listed under "My Calendars". Click your new calendar and it will appear side-by-side with the default calendar. You can toggle between the two as well if you like.
The only drawback is that reminders only function in the default calendar.

Where could I locate these lost files, such as: emails, contacts, calendar.

Try running scanpst.exe on your Personal Folder. By default scanpst.exe can be found here;

Try renaming outcmd.dat to .old and restart Outlook. All the Toolbars will reset then. This is quite a common problem with Outlook. The default location for this file is:
C:\Documents and Settings\%username%\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook

Try running Outlook with the /safe switch from your Start-> Run window. The command line should look like this (check your path to Outlook.exe);
"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office11\Outlook.exe" /safe
When this works run Help-> Detect and Repair

Start in safe mode again and disable all add-ons in Tools-> Options-> tab Other-> button Advanced E-mail Options?-> button Add-In Manager?/COM Add-ins?

Start Outlook normally and see it works now. If it does enable them one by one until Outlook fails to load again. The add-on you last enabled is most likely the cause of your issue. Check with the vendor for updates or contact them for further troubleshooting their add-on

This appears to be a common problem, with many solutions, though I have yet to find one that works for me. When using Outlook 2003 with Word 2003 set to be the email editor, Word opens and works fine to CREATE a new email. However, when trying to REPLY TO or FORWARD an email, I get the error message "Microsoft Word is set to be your email editor. However, Word is unavailable, not installed, or is not the same version as Outlook. The outlook email editor will be used instead...," and when I click OK to that message the native Outlook email editor opens. Word 2003 worked fine with Outlook 2003 replying to or forwarding emails till this morning, but the behavior described above now applies. The OS, by the way, is Windows 10.

Then I moved the shortcuts to where I wanted them, changed the icons and renamed them. That solved that problem.Here is where they are located with Win XP Pro and Office XP: C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office10 The file you are looking for should have the Outlook symbol on it. To be sure you have the right file, just double click on it and outlook should open.

Try using the repair installation options by popping the disk in or by using the Change option from Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel for Office Xp (You will need the disk either ways.)

Now Everything is working EXCEPT my Outlook email 2002, I can go out to the web and outlook does not work. The settings are correct based Verizon looking at them although I CAN NOT recieve any email. The send and receive box does not even come up! The email does come and go from on their site although I can not send or receive through my outlook!

It is obviously very cumbersome!


Any help from anyone would be greatly appreciated.

Did you create a new Outlook profile or just edit the existing one?
Re-check the settings and verify with Verizon what their email settings are. Are you seeing any errors during the send/receive tests?

If you don't currently backup up your outlook PST files you should definitely start doing that to avoid any possible data loss.

I have reviewed the threads on this forum, but can't find anything that exactly pertains to me. Please help...

I purchased a new Dell XPS with Vista Home Premium x64 which came with Microsoft Mail. My old computer was an XP Home machine running Office 2002, including Outlook. I installed Outlook 2002 on my Vista machine but a known Vista/Outlook 2002 bug keeps having me enter my password everytime I run the program, so I decided to switch e-mail programs to the included Microsoft Mail on my Vista machine.

Here is my question... how can I get all of my archived messages from my XP/Outlook 2002 machine to my Vista/Windows Mail machine? Whenever I follow the directions on my Vista machine, it gives me the error "Messages cannot be imported from the MAPI client. MAPI is not installed on this computer or an error occured while initializing it." This message occurs as soon as I click on the 'Outlook' selection in the messsaging import dialogue box... I can't even get to the point where Microsoft Mail looks for the archive file to import.

In addition to this, I don't even know what type of file to export my Outlook 2002 messages into: Comma Separated Values (DOS), Comma Separated Values (Windows), dBase, Access,Excel, FoxPro, Personal Folder File (.pst), Tab Separated Values (DOS), or Tab Separated Values (Windows).

I looked for solutions on this forum and others, but can't find any that work. Can someone please walk me through this process? I would greatly apprec... Read more

Help, my Microsoft Outlook 2002 has just begun running extremely slow. This only started about one week ago. I have looked on all the sites that give advice for this and so far nothing has worked, I have deleted all of my email, sent, received and folders. I have run detect and repair. All other programs are running normally. I also did a virus check and spyware removal. I have a Dell with Windows XP Professional. Please help this is so frustrating. I know practically nothing about computer systems but can follow directions quite well. Thanks

Hi everyone. I have Microsoft Outlook 2002 Service Pack 3. Well, I am having a problem with it sending my e-mail. Sometimes I'll click an e-mail link on the web and it'll automatically open the compose new message window. I will then type out the e-mail message and click send. Well, it won't send it right then. I then have to go into the main Microsoft Outlook program and click Send and Receive before it will send my e-mail that I just composed. What is up with that? How do I fix it? Do I not have a certain setting right?

Hi Guys

You have to type in the product key exactly as it appears. It is case sensitive and make sure that you type a 1 for number and l for letter, same for 0 number and O capital letter.

With Word, I have words that i use that are correct, but it keeps underlining them in red and i know you can add the words into its dictionary so that this doesn't happen for those words anymore. I forgot on where you do it, i know i should know as i've been using word since Office '95. I just always click on ignore. Someone did tell me once, but i need my memory refreshed.

A:Microsoft Word 2003 - Need Help

The easiest way I found was to run spell check and when the pop up dialog box appears on words not in Word's dictionary( red squigglies) , there is an option to ignore, change, etc., or "add to dictionary". It is there that I make a decision whether to add or not, and I add it to the general dictionary. Check the HELP to determine how to set up a *special* dictionary, if that is what you want to do, just for these words.
Hope this helps.
