I had a large address list in Microsoft Publisher 2003 I used for address label mail merges. It resided on a Windows XP3 Service Pack 3 machine. I upgraded my machine to Windows 7 32Bit and MS Office 2007. Mail merge address list Edit attempts now says "An operation cannot be completed because of database engine errors" report. Any suggestions on exporting that data or synchronizing to the new database form? Can I extract the data from this old database into some other format and import it to the new Publisher...or do I have to...eek... re-enter all the data and create a new database?
I often write in several languages (French, Dutch, and English) and so I use multiple keyboard layouts (on Windows 7) and multiple editing languages (in Microsoft Office 2007). I find that when I have Word open and I change the keyboard setting in Windows (from US to US-International or vice-versa), Microsoft Word will change the editing language back to English (United States), Word's default language, no matter what other language (Dutch or French) I was working in at the time.

Can you reccomend me a good Excel 2007 Book? I'm currently studying a foundation degree in Renwable Energy in the UK, and am struggling with Excel 2007.

After buying Office 2007 (Standard) on my Vista system, I can no longer change file associations. I migrated from a mixture of Office 2000 Professional and Windows office XP. When I go to the file association dialog box, it recommends odd programs, and no Office 2007 options, hence nothing opens in the new format. It won't change even if I point to the correct .exe file in Office 12 folder. The menu doesn't even offer any Word 2007 options. HELP! Nothing on the web or on the Microdouche website. [more inside]
