I'm using Office 2003 Pro and have been trying to insert a Greek letter into my newsletter. For some weird reason, the only Greek letters that I have available to insert (are basic mathematical symbols (pi, omega, delta, and sigma). What happened to the rest of the alphabet? My earlier versions of Office Pro had the entire Greek alphabet to insert as symbols. I need two letters, gamma and theta, but the entire set would be nice to have. I custom installed Pro to include everything, so this can't be it. I've also tried to insert Greek letters using other Office products like Word without success.

I've had to restore a customer's Win XP laptop to factory settings, prior to the restore it had Office 2007 Home and Student Edition and Publisher 2002 installed and working fine. I now need to install this software again and get both programs working fine as before. Now that I've completed the restore I can see that the computer originally came with OneNote 2003 pre-installed, the customer has supplied the CDs for Office 2007 and Publisher 2002. I'm not sure which order I need install Office 2007 Home and Publisher 2002 so that I achieve the original result of both programs working fine and OneNote 2003 removed. The customer doesn't remember uninstalling OneNote 2003 so presumably it was upgraded during the Office 2007 Home installation. any other relevant info would also be very much appreciated.

publishing to web causing error

If I publish to a web server whose owner has told me runs Windows 2000 Server with the most recent frontpage extensions, I land up waiting forever and then get an error message. "An error occured while attempting to save the document. Pages created may not be valid." I am able to publish to a web that is based on my own computer's hardrive and I am able to upload the entire web to a server but when I try to publish directly to the server it bombs out.

Publish Blog Entry from Word

Version: 2008 Operating System: Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) Processor: intel I've used both Office versions for PC and Mac, but one thing I was wondering was whether there is a way to directly publish a blog entry written in Word to my website. I know there was a way with the PC version of Office because it had an option that said "New Blog Entry," which would format everything and publish it to the website you set up. I don't see this for the Mac version of Office.

Trusted Publisher Store vs. NET Runtime Security
5 replies , 5/12/2008, 2:35:01 PM
Re-Posting per conseirge: I'm trying to find a definative answer concerning security requirements of COM ADD-INs created using VSTO and VB.NET 2005 for Excel 2003 and 2007. I have people in my organization that feel having signed all the dlls with my Publisher's Cert. and having that certificate in the "Trusted Publishers Store" should be enough to run the COM Add-IN in Excel (2003 and 2007). They feel we should not have to give explicit permission to the Publisher in the NET Framework Runtime Security if the Publisher is already in the Trusted Publisher Store. I can only get it working on a client PC by setting the Runtime Security. Our CA is in Trusted Root Certificate Authorities and my Publisher's Certificate is in the Trusted Publisher's Store. It's even visible from Excel's Trusted Publishers list. However, the COM add-in only runs if I add myself to the NET Framework Runtime Security. I need something that clearly states that the Trusted Publisher Store can or cannot be used and whether or not using the Runtime Security is the only way to allow a VSTO/ VB.NET 2005 COM ADD_IN to run. -- J

Hi everyone, I'm hoping someone can shed some light on a subject for me. I have a client with an SBS2003 that is performing flawlessly. I have an internal website published that can be accessed on site by typing http://intranet. They are on a scheme. I can VPN into the server through the firewall appliance (Fortigate 60 works great, btw) and I can access the server. My home office network is on a scheme, if that helps, so they are different. If I type the http://servername into the browser, I can get to the server home page. From there, I can click remote work place and finally access the companyweb default home page. I can't access the intranet set I've created, however. Page cannot be found. If I just type http://companyweb, I get page cannot be displayed. If I just type http://intranet, I get page cannot be displayed. My laptop that I'm using is a member of my office domain, although I logged in local, non domain mode. Ideally, I'd like outside users to be able to access the internal intranet for this client, and also use applications that are dependent on data located on the server. Does this post belong in another group? Thanks for your help. Steve

Microsoft Publisher 2007 problem publishing
1 replies , 5/4/2009, 8:58:32 PM
I am going crazy trying to publish my website! I'm using microsoft publisher 2007 trail version, and I'm able to use all the tools and start the process of publishing, so I don't -think- that that's the problem. I follow the directions to the "T", but I just keep running into problems. First when I try and put my web address in the file name box it comes up saying it's either too long or illegal characters. OK, so I took out the http://. I hit save and a little window pops up saying it's publishing, but nothing else happens. It never asks for a password or anything like that, and nothing has changed at my website. I was using frontpage and I have the frontpage extension installed on my hosting site, which is lunarpages. I asked lunarpages for some advice and they said to keep the extensions installed. I am without a doubt a beginner at this and it's very frustrating. I have searched and searched for a solution with no luck. I am -begging- for some help:confused:. Please someone have mercy on me:D.

Ok, this is a mystery. I just recently bought Office 2007 Professional. Installed it on my Vista Business 64 bit O/S laptop and now I cannot open any .pub files created post 01/01/09 (I seem to be OK with any .pub files created prior to this date, go figure). The only message I get from Publisher 2007 after I open this file is "Publisher cannot open the file.". I have tried opening this from Open Files menu and also from clicking on the same file from Windows Explorer. So I installed Publisher 2003 from my Office 2003 Business suite on the same laptop. This same file that won't open in Publisher 2007 now OPENS in Publisher 2003! It's fine, all the content is there, saves ok, re-open ok, it's a normal .pub file. I tried again in Publisher 2007, still NO JOY. Huh?!?!? The source of this issue came from my colleague who also has a retail stand alone version of Publisher 2007 as he could not open the same and other .pub files created post 01/01/09, so we now have 2 different machines that won't open these .pub files. We could both open these files about a month something in the patch from M$ has screwed him up. Mine is a new laptop so I cannot say at my end but I seem to now have the same problem with my version of Publisher 2007. Suffice to say that if I didn't need these files, I would have ignored them but I need these files to work in Publisher 2007 otherwise what's the point of having the upgraded suite? I have put an email call to Microsoft Tech Support but have not heard back from them yet. Any tip, hints, fixes would be appreciated. Thxs! -- Albsterama

publishing a web page with visio
2 replies , 2/25/2004, 4:04:41 AM
I have published a web page with a visio doc, works great. My problem is this, it allows only one save, after that I can no longer get to any of the 12-13 pages of the doc using the html. it shows only the first page. and if I go back and delete the files associated with the \html and republish, it works great, till I try to republish again, with updates. guess It will only allow a new publish, not an update. I'm fairly new to visio, I am probably missing something. point me in the right direction please.

We are trying to take an existing Publisher document - it's a newsletter - and then copy and paste into a new outlook message so that we can perform an email merge and send out via email (Word is the email editor). When we do this, it looks a little fuzzy but the problem is that with multiple pages in Publisher, pages 2 and 3 seem to skew and not line up. If we had a one page newsletter everything would be acceptable but once we go into muliple pages it just doesnt look right. The goal is to send out this newsletter via email using the mail merge function and not adding anything as an attachment whether it be Word, .pdf, or other.

Hi I have Publisher files that are 18MB - 20MB in size. Most of the PUB files have only 2 or 3 pages (of course, with graphics). For ease of transport, I convert the PUB files to PDF files using PDFCreator software (freeware). After conversion, an 18MB PUB file is shrunk to a 200KB PDF file. Shouldn't Microsoft build this inside Publisher ? I wouldn't care if the file is PUB format or PDF format. I just need it to be small enough to email around. I mean...newsletters would be much easier to distribute around the workplace. For readers, people just want to read it (and not really work with it). So, it's much better to read a few hundred KBs file than 10-20MB file. For your comments Steve

Publisher 2003 images disappearing
2 replies , 10/5/2007, 6:00:00 PM
I use Publisher 2003 to make newsletters and other publicity materials for an organization. Unfortunately, I'm seeing an issue with images/graphics disappearing. Let me explain more clearly... When I create a file--a newsletter for example--I may insert images, either from ClipArt or from a jpeg on my PC. Everything will be fine while I am working on it, but once I have closed Publisher and then go back to it later, I can no longer see the images--only blank space. This is true both as I am working on the file and in the Print Preview. They DO, however, appear as normal when printed. I realize that this is what is really important, but still, it is quite inconvenient. Do you have any ideas? Thank you in advance for your help.
