    Image Shows up as a Red X

    I am using Word 97. At work, I have a document, created by someone else, that is 350 pages long and contains a TON of photograhs tables. All display and print fine, except the 3rd one from the beginning of the document. It displays as a big red X. I tried deleting it when I couldn't figure out how to get it to display or print, but when I delete it, then the next image becomes a red x (it was fine before). This is driving me nuts! I tried re-scanning the photo as a jpg and re-inserting it. It will display/print fine on a one page document, but when I insert it into this large document, it returns to a red x. Is there a limit to the number of graphics you can insert into a document? If so, why would it be the 3rd one that doesn't work, instead of the last one in the document.

    Re: Image Shows up as a Red X

    There is an extensive article about this issue on the Microsoft Knowledge base: Q162349

    http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/ar...s/Q162/3/49.asp

    Basically: Get to sr-1 & better sr-2
    But that won't alter existing docs.
    The objects are still there. Select the object, do copy & paste into an image editor. Delete the object in word and recopy/paste from the image editor.
    But do this on 97/sr-1 ot 2 else the Big Red X can return.
