    Office97 to 2003 upgrade (Office 2003)

    I've read the previous thread on this subject but didn't see my problem addressed. When switching from one application to another using alt-tab or activating from the taskbar, the application does not seem to have full focus. I can see, for example, Word but cannot activate the file menu or the document close [x] but the master application minimize underscore, close [x] functions normally. Also in Access if I open a table then close it and attempt to move to another table using the scroll bar along the bottom, the scroll bar will not move until I click on the blue handle bar at the top. Of course this is not a consistent occurance.

    Other developers have mentioned this phenomenon also and some users have complained of their programs being frozen which I believe is the same problem.

    Does anyone have any insight into curing it?

    I don't use Office 2003, but occasionally in Office XP I have a problem where I need to click an extra time in the body of a Word document after switching to its window. This is rare and clears after a restart, so I really haven't seen enough of a pattern to track it down to a particular application or usage scenario.

    Thanks for the response, jscher. This is not rare on my PC, but I haven't tried a restart after each instance. If that is necessary then I would think there would be more folks complaining.

    I'm not sure how to describe the phenomenon in order to search for it on Microsoft's website, but I'll give it a try.
