Help !!!!!! I have a Laptop running XP / Office 2003 - has been sweet as a nut since purchase 18 mths ago ....than all of a sudden we cant open any files in MS Word / Excel, Powerpoint. The application can be opened OK a new document or spreadsheet can be created or saved but it cannot be subsequently opened. I've tried uninstalling office and re installing it to no avail. When office is removed from the machine the office files can be opened using wordpad. I've tried opening files created on another macine via floppy no good. All non office applications are fine. I'm really struggling now - any ideas ???? :tazz:
