Office for Mac

Apple MACBOOK PRO

Specs: Mac OS X, Intel Core Duo - 2GB
I have been using a Mac for a few months after 100
years of using a PC. I installed MS Office 2008 for the
Mac, and it works well enough. Except: when I open a
Word document, more than half the time the Mail Merge
Manager dropdown box, well, drops down. Nothing in
the document has anything to do with mail merge, nor
did it ever.

I can, of course, close it, but it's annoying. Any ideas
about how i can stop this? I've been into the DOT
template (or whatever it's called in Mac) but can find
nothing in there having to do with this issue.

Thanks for your help.

Have you tried:

Click the Microsoft Office Orb,
then click Word Options.
Click Resources.
Click Diagnose

See if that helps.

Thanks Mike. I cannot find the Office Orb. I know what it
is, but it's nowhere on any of the component of MS Office
2008 for the Mac (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc.). Do you
know where I can find it? As I said, I'm new to Macs.
Maybe the Orb isn't used on them. Thanks.

When you open Word, it's the fancy new icon they use, in the upper left corner.

Thanks, but there's no such icon in any of the Office
components. My guess is that it didn't come over to Mac
from PCs. Is there any other place I can get to Options,
Resources, Diagnose, etc.?

Thanks again.

Bob

Don't know about Mac's, if it's not in the upper left corner...
Try doing a HELP in Word on Diagnostics and see if that leads you to it.
