    Print on Context Menu (2002)

    What's with the context menu in the Open dialog? Print appears as an item, but righclicking a document and selecting Print does nothing. I must be out of the loop. This is a known issue, right? and MS promises a fix in Word 2003, right?

    Maybe there's a custom property that needs to be created first. Or maybe I need to delete ALL those Outlook generated properties, not just _AdHocReviewCycleID. Oy!

    I guess Microsoft has stopped "admitting" that it's an issue. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    It works from Windows Explorer and must be a hang over from there. I does work when in the Open file pane of Paint Shop Pro Version 8, but it prints a small image using the "MS Photo Editor".

    Just ried to do this from Excel and it hangs Excel <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15>

    This is on a Win XP Pro runninh Office 2002.

    Edit
    In office 2003 I get the same error message but still sends to printer and prints out the file.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    Dave,
    He's some more T&E info:

    It works from the Office 2002 ShortCut bar Open dialog for .doc and I assume any Office file.

    It works from the Word 2002 Open dialog IF the file has a .txt extension.

    This is what comes from having Starbucks stations within 30 feet of programmers' cubicles...
