View Full Version : Word 2003 not accepting photos

28-03-2006, 03:47 PM
The system has Windows XP Pro, connected to a domain (server) and is one of eight PCs doing the same. All systems have Office 2003 SBE installed and all updates are complete. The user (just one of them) is unable to successfully insert a photo into word - the message that appears is a small text saying embedded(then a bunch of numbers).

Any ideas - I've searched the help, the micro. website with no success....

Have you tried the old trick of pasting an image in MS Paint, select all... Edit...Copy, and pasting it into Word.

Also use Edit...Paste Special, and try different options, if they appear. I like the "picture" option, if selectable.

Thanks for those ideas - will try that. If it helps, I could insert a picture into word using the insert function BEFORE I did a rebuild - after rebuilding and downloading all the updates for office and xp, I could no longer insert using the word function. Strange.
