    When I try to insert a pic from my files to a doc in word all I get is a sizing box and not the file I need. I have tried downloading old files that I have used before word 2007 and they do the same thing.

    thats a large file and a quite a large resolution so it maybe the image is off the page

    you may want to edit the image a little

    open the file in any image editor and see if you can resize and save with a different name

    It's not large it's enormous!

    Have you checked that in Options> Advanced you DON'T have Show Picture Placeholders checked?

    would like to say thanks for all the help. I really like this site and will use it more in the future. I found the answer to my problem where I thought it was all along, in setting up word. All is well on the home front

    So what did you do in setting up Word to allow you to insert the picture?

    I felt like all along that my problem was with word 2007 and sure enough it was. I went thru word set up and redefined my parameters for how word would handle and present pages and their layout formats.
