Please refer to the online help or documentation of the host application to determine how to enable macros.' I did a Google search and Adobe had a fix for this know problem with Office XP, but it did not work. I would like to upgrade her to Office 2003 to see if that fixes the issue. My question is, would it be better to uninstall Office XP first, then install Office 2003 or can I just install Office 2003 and will will remember the Office XP settings and keep her Outlook Archive files and other information of that nature? Thanks.
back when I had office xp, when that error came up I just enable macros. I trust adode.
this is how I fix a problem. I figure it out. but sometimes after I figure it out, I come to a conclusion it was better to rebuild, repair because figuring it out was too much a headache.
who care about how you fix it. as long as you fix it and you are happy.
on my business card, my claim to fame was fixing your computer without reformatting. but with all of the BS viruses and trojans out now, I reformat 7 out of 10 times now. it's just easier to do and the people won't bring the computer back with another problem.
I also partition their hard drive. 1 part is a 15 gig OS drive, the other is their document drive so that they will never lose their data on a new format, because a fresh install is the easiest thing to do on a computer. losing your data is the hardest
