I will attempt to describe the situation... I had a two-page document that I prepared in Publisher (2007). I wanted to send it to a co-worker as an e-mail attachment. As a test, I sent myself a BBC. My co-worker stated that he could not open it and when I attempted to open it, it was just an outlined blank page and a notice came up stating that due to problems, and in the interest of protecting the computer, microsoft would not open the document. Any suggestions as to what I am doing wrong? Norm

This may be a problem with the Temp folder. Go to C:/Windows/TEMP or C:/TEMP and see if it even exists. If it does not the extra files that are created when you save must be somewhere and must be existant when the program is open. If there is no TEMP folder please reply.

2 things, first thing first, we have a forum dedicated to Microsoft Office issues. I have moved your thread there.

Second, I have no idea what this would have to do with Temp folders. There could be a number of reasons this failed.

Does your partner have the same version of office. Most people have not switched to 2007 yet. 2003 is still the king, and it cannot read 2007 documents. If he does not have the same version, then you need to save it in the correct format so he can read it. 2007 came with a PDF printer, I recommend that you print it as a PDF file and send it to him that way.

If he does have the same version, then I recommend you zip the file and send it to him. Some antivirus scanners on email servers will snag Office documents.

Post back with some more information and we'll see what we can come up with.
