View Full Version : MS Works Database File Formatting Bug



15-10-2001, 12:21 PM
I am having an annoying time with MS Works database documents that insist on retaining a shaded field here and there upon opening.(Same fields each time...)
Doesn't seem to matter that I've repeatedly reformatted the offending fields to have 'no shading', before saving and closing the files - next time they're opened, there they are again - SHADED!
It never used to bother me, but after months of reformatting, it's REALLY bugging me!
Any suggestions please?
Thanks in advance
Lynne
PS : I KNOW there's way more important things to eat yourself up about, but there you go, it's sent me mad!

Are those fields shaded when you open a 'New' document? If they are, try saving a fixed empty document as the default...

Hi Graham
Nope - I can build new database documents and they behave themselves just fine!
