red x in place of embedded pictures in Word 2003
Hello everyone,

I am new to all this so I apologise if I am doing this all wrong!

I have a user who has created a number of Word 2003 documents and inserted embedded images. We have just recently (i.e. today!) replaced his machine and now everytime he opens any of the word documents he created in this way he gets the red x instead of an image.

Now, as these documents are on the company network, I have opened them on my machine and the images are there, I am an administrator so am not sure if this makes a difference. The replacement machine is XP Pro -which is the same as his previous machine, and the reason for upgrade was to give the user dual screen capabilities.

If anyone could shed some light on this for me that would be great.
