    My MS WORKS 2000 began "acting up" so I've reinstalled it. I received the following message during the install and would like to know if I should worry about it or not.
    Missing Key 'Oracle Name" in C:\MSSETUP.T\~MDAC.T\odbckey.info

    I was downloading from the original disk.

    Any advice/help would be appreciated.

    Thanks...Joelle

    I'm having serious printing problems. It prints about 1/2 a page then the rest of my document is blank.

    I already checked the updates and have been searching for the missing file...no luck so far.

    You referenced "'Oracle Name" in C:\MSSETUP.T\~MDAC.T\odbckey.info" are you running an oracle database? Or do you even have a database on your system? Oracle is not a part of Microsoft Office, but ODBC is a database function. If you have Oracle on the system you might want to uninstall and reinstall that as well. Start as clean as you can on an install. Scroll through add and remove programs and search for all of the office products. Don't do the updates until you have a fully functional MS Office. Hope this helps.
