  • A Nasty in Office 2003 SP3

    Found a nasty gotcha today in Office 2003 SP3. There is a new group policy setting that controls whether you are allowed to open documents from previous versions of Office. However the default is No. You need to create a group policy to allow it. We have two customers already that simply didnt know that a heap of word and excel docs were in a previous format until they couldnt open them.
    Thanks to Daryl Maunder of the Melbourne SBS Users Group for posting that one.

    How do you create this GP exactly? (may as well turn this thread into a bug and fix thread)
