    Mix and match Word 2003 and Outlook 2002 (Word 2003)

    We have a site which upgraded all Word to 2003 but only two Outlooks. Word works. Outlook works. But Word 2003 doesn't seem to want to talk to Outlook 2002.

    How can I point Word to use their old outlook?

    Re: Mix and match Word 2003 and Outlook 2002 (Word 2003)

    Just a question for my understanding

    Did you mean that:
    * Outlook would not fire Word up to create mail message
    * Word could not see contacts for mail merges?

    or some other relationships or symptoms

    Hi Judith

    Is your problem is with using Word as the e-mail editor? Outlook 2002 can not use Word 2003 as its e-mail editor. Outlook & Word must be the same version to use Word as the e-mail editor.

    Initilly the problem appeared in a VBA module that grabbed address info for a Word document. It wouldn't after upgrade. I tried to find what defined the "default address book" with no luck.

    So then I thought I'd see if I could set it by using the Envelops & Labels address button (similar to setting up an envelop printer for a macro). This time I got:
    *Error Message
    "Unspecified Error"
    Check your mail set-up. You must have version 1.0
    or higher to use this feature.

    At this point the boss suggested I ask the Lounge. So here I am.
