Hi all, I have a problem with viewing my Word 2000 documents under Word 2002. I format a document under 2000 and when I look at it under 2002 the margins on the top and bottom are shifted upward. The margin settings are the same size when I look at the document under 2000 and 2002 but the 2002 documents are offset. My text boxes and pictures are shifted somehow. I was thinking there might be a hot fix for this issue. Anyone know what is causing this?


Thank you
Matt

are you flipping between 2000 and 2002?

why not use the same version of word on both computers?

i ran into a different problem with office '97 and 2000 and changed all systems to 2k.
i'd run a 97 or 2k word doc and was always asked if i wanted to change to the other format, sometimes i did, sometimes i didn't.

i have a feeling you try to look at a doc done in 2k and want to view it in 2002.
when you finish you're probably asked do you want to revert back to 2k and that's why you're having problems.
if you change it to 2002 it 's supposed to be backward compatible with 2k and you don't say if this is happening one time or every time.:cool:

Well the deal is this. The department at work has some people on Word 2000 and others on 2002. Most of the documents they have, which are 100’s, are done on Word 2000. So the Word 2002 users look at the documents created under 2000 and the margins are offset even though they state the same size under the settings. It’s like some of the graphics shift up just a little bit. I can't just change to 2002 for everyone because then they have to modify the 100's of documents that were created. I don't understand why it would look different between 2000 and 2002. It happens every time and it does not prompt me with any errors its just how 2002 looks at the document.

Hope this gives you a better picture.
