    Documents not opening on page 1 (Word XP)

    Can anyone help? I have a group of users who are experiencing problems with opening documents. When they are opening some documents they are being taken to different pages (eg on opening they are taken to page 33). I have ascertained that these documents are being shared in some way and am trying to find information on the internet to ascertain whether this is an issue with shared documents.

    In the recesses of my mind I had a feeling that if a user creates a document, then sends the document to another user, who makes changes. When the document is received back by the original creator, when opening it takes them to the last cursor position.

    Am I talking rubbish !!

    Regards

    Do those users have code in their Normal.dot that opens a document at the last position where it was edited? The code would involve Application.GoBack.

    Hi Hans

    I have checked the code and have found a reference to WordBasic.GoBack. Fortunately this template has nothing to do with me, very worrying that there is WordBasic code still floating about.

    GoBack is probably the explanation for the behavior you reported.

    (WordBasic.GoBack could be replaced with Application.GoBack in Word 97 and later; there are some things that can ONLY be done using WordBasic, however, even in the most recent versions of Word... <img src=/S/crazy.gif border=0 alt=crazy width=15 height=15>)

    Thanks as always Hans .... As mentioned this is an old piece of code that is at present live in the company, hopefully it will be replaced in the near future with the code I have been working on and fingers crossed all this little issues will dissolve !!
