    Mouse not Working Word Only (2003 All Updates)

    I have posted here as the problem is only occurring within Word. My mouse - new Microsoft Comfort Optical Mouse 1000 (corded, not wireless) has stopped working in Word only. I can get mouse movement showing but when I click with either button, NADA
    Any suggestions
    TIA

    Re: Mouse not Working Word Only (2003 All Updates)

    Hi Steve,

    Since mouse actions are controlled by the Windows API, rather than Word, the only way I can seem Word interferring with this is if there's an add-in taking over the API functions. This might be by design or error (eg the result of a dll conflict). Have you tried running 'Detect and Repair', or Phil Rabichow's "Systematic Approach to Behavioral Problems in Word (97/2000)" in <post#=197827>post 197827</post#>?
    Cheers,

    In case other loungers have had this similar problem: I bought a Dell Dimension 9200 with Office 2007. The mouse wouldn't work with Office. You need to get a fix from the Dell website (odd that they didn't do it before shipping it, though).
