This is caused by the document using a "field" and not an actual date. Press <ALT+F9> to see the date's field code. You will probably see: { DATE } or { DATE @ "M/d/yyyy" } (NOTE: The M/d/yyyy formatting may be different for you; since this is personal choice). You can manually delete the field and type in your date. To automate this, open the TEMPLATE (*.DOT) and change the field by using: Insert > Field... and selecting "CreateDate" from the Field names list. Also - set your desired format too and then click <OK>. Save the change to your template and it will use the date you create the fax and keep that date if the fax is saved as a document and reopened in the future.

Following are three possible issues you can easily investigate and correct:

Upgrading DLS or Adding an Additional LabelWriter

A previous LabelWriter printer may still be installed with documents in the print queue. You must delete any documents in the print queue for all previously installed LabelWriter printers before proceeding with the installation.

1.Open the Printers folder. Based on Operating System and system configuration, the Printers folder can be accessed in one of the following ways:
Start > Settings > Printers
Start > Control Panel > Printers & Other Hardware > View installed printers or fax printers
Start > Control Panel > Printers & Faxes

2.Double-click on the LabelWriter printer, the print queue will open.

3.Delete any pending print jobs and close the print queue.

4.Reboot your computer and re-run the DLS installation.


Installing DLS and a LabelWriter for the First Time

Some antivirus or anti-spyware applications may prevent the installation of DLS and the LabelWriter printer. You may have to temporarily disable these applications in order to successfully complete the installation.

1.Restart your computer.

2.After restarting, temporarily disable any antivirus and anti-spyware applications.

3.Install DLS, connect the LabelWriter when prompted during the installation.

4.Once installation has completed, re-enable any antivirus or anti-spyware applications.

Virtual Printer Deleted after Windows Update....I Can't printing MDI from internet page ((( Help please ... Office 2003 SP2 Had Before This MDI Printer very Good


Hi,

First step, ( May be your print spooler service is not running )

1. See if you are able to find no printers at all in "printer and faxes" on control panel.
2. If not - go to start->run -> type "services.msc" and hit enter. Locate "Print spooler" service. See if that service is running on not. You might see "Started" in front of that means working. You can right click "print spooler" and restart once and check "printer and faxes" on control panel. If not follow step 2.

step 2:

You can reinstall the MDI printer by doing custom installation of Microsoft Office 2003. To do that follow below instructions
1. Go to Start->Run->Type "appwiz.cpl" and hit enter. This will open up Add Remove program wizard for you.
2. Now locate MS Office installation and click on "Change"
3. Check mark "add or remove feature" and click "next".
4. On the botton of the installation window check mark "choose advanced customization of application" and click "next"
5. Under "Microsoft office" expand "+" sign of "office tools"
6. Locate the object "Microsoft office document imaging". Click the icon and select "not available" and click on "update". This will uninstall the MDI drive.
7. Repeat the steps from point 2 and locate the object "Microsoft office document imaging" click the icon and select "run from my computer" and click on update.

Above steps will re-install the MDI drivers and you can find the virtual printer going to printer and faxes on control panel.

"this modification is not allowed because the document is locked"


Rename all instances your document template files (Normal.dotm or Normal.dot) to prevent formatting changes, AutoText entries, and macros that are stored in the global template (Normalm.dot or Normal.dot) from affecting the behavior of Word and documents that are opened, rename your global template (Normal.dotm or Normal.dot). Renaming the template lets you quickly determine whether the global template is causing the issue.

When you rename the Normal.dotm template in Word 2007 or the Normal.dot template in Word 2003 and in earlier versions of Word, you reset several options to the default settings. These include custom styles, custom toolbars, macros, and AutoText entries.

Windows word 2003 Autotext not working.


Not sure what problem you are having with AutoText. One problem could be that you do not have the show autocomplete suggestions checked off. To do this go to Insert, AutoText, then AutoText, and look for the tab AutoText. Make sure the check box marked show autocomplete suggestions is checked off. There can be other parts of the Auto text that is not working for you and you may be able to look around in the other tabs to find the part that is not activated. If you give me more information I might be able to answer a more specific question.

Keyboard locked out for microsoft word 2003


It's not the keyboard. If it was, it wouldn't work in anything.

It's possible that the "normal.dot" template is protected. This will result in any document created using that template also being protected. Try going into File -> New and creating something specific, for example a menu, that uses a different template. If suddenly you can use the keyboard, then you've found the problem.

Under those circumstances, use the Windows Search tool to find the file "normal.dot" and delete it. When you run Word again it will create a new, unprotected document template called "normal.dot" and Word should function correctly from then on.
