    We recently upgraded our admin PC's to MS Office 2003 from 2000 but for some unknown reason some but not all of the old documents layouts are messed up. It mostly happens with tables or images that seem to end up either on top of each other or the layout is not as it was when in 2000.

    If I open the docs back in 2000 they are fine., off2003 has all the recent updates but we are still getting this odd behaviour, anyone any ideas?

    Thanks in advance, Si

    Doesn't o2k3 have a backwards compatability option where you specify that it treats documents as o2k? or is that just when you create a document with it?

    Si are you veiwing the doc in the reading layout view? If so look at in the print layout. Does it still do that?

    No, I'm not viewing it in reading layout view. The docs are like it when printed out too, odd I can tell you, I gave up as had more pressing thing to attend to but I would still like to know why it does this. It does seem to be documents that have tables rather that the text docs. ?????? :(

    I really don't know Si, because there are not suppose to be any compatible issue with 2003. I open up my school docs that were made on office 2000 and I now have 2003 and it didn't do it for me. Is there anyway you can send me a partial sample to see?

    Were the tables set up in Word originally, or in Excel and then imbeded perchance?

    Funnily enough, that happened to me too, only backwards.
    I did a word document in 2003 as a presentation and took it to a printers. They are using 2000 and it came out all over the place.

    I was just creating a reply and I had an idea of what it could be and figured it out. For some reason the page vertical alignment is set to center? Not sure how this has happened as its done it in multiple documents so I don't think its one of the users thats done this, plus its fine in 2000. But hey, Si just earned a few more brownie points on Monday. :)
