    Disappearing Pictures! (Word 2000)

    Good morning Loungers. My problem today is with photo's/pictures/scanned documents inserted into Word documents.
    I have typed CV's for all our employees and inserted their photo's using menu - Insert, Picture, from file. Terriffic. The photo goes into the document. Only problem is, when I look at the document, all I see is a rectangle where the picture should be. Can't see the photo!!! Others within the company, using the same software, but different terminals, can view the photo's.
    I realise its probably just the way the computer is set up, and its just a switch flicked on or off, but its still very frustrating. Can anyone please set me onto the correct path? In plain language please. Don't understand softie-speak!! A thousand thankyous in advance!

    Hi Debby,

    Haven't got access to Word 2000 right now so the following is based on Word 97:
    Go into Tools|Options|View and make sure that the 'picture placeholders' box under 'Show' is not checked.

    The Word 2000 equivalent should fix it.

    Cheers

    Well...according to my dictionary:
    <pre>macro- prefix large + -pod suffix foot</pre>

    And no one has ever seen a picture of you? I think you set yourself up for that one. <img src=/S/laugh.gif border=0 alt=laugh width=15 height=15>

    Keep working on it, Jefferson.
    You're on the right track (so to speak).
    Hint: country of origin.
