Document not opening properly

GroupWise 6.6 SP4

Most documents in the library when double clicked will show up as a background of grey

If I view the document I can see it

If I copy the document to the same Library or another library The result is the same

If I highlight the document and save it to a local drive I can open the local drive copy

This seems to happen primarily with excel files

Re: Document not opening properly

Which version of Excel, and which version of GW, there is no 6.6

Document not opening properly

I have experienced the same problem. I can see the documents,but when I
try to view them there is only "background of grey". I should say that we
experience more problems with Word-documents than Excel-documents.

NetWare 6.5, GroupWise 7, Office 2003

Some of the Excel-documents I can see in the Viewer but I can´t open them
in Excel.

I have now opened a new Library, exported all (almost) documents from the
GroupWise 6.5 and imported them into version 7.

Regards,

Göran Sjöblom

Re: Document not opening properly

Excel 2003 does seem to cause problems, you could try the 6.55 client to
see if that is any better. I'm still on Office 2000 here, so I can't
duplicate the problem I'm afraid.

Cheers Dave

Re: Document not opening properly

Does GW7 handle it any better, the latest FTF clients seem to cured a few
DMS problems
