I'm using Office 97 in Vista. I know, many really weird quirks, but at least it's been functioning normally for what I'm using it right now.
I've had files for weeks, months, and sometimes years that I occassionally add to and resave with the same name. Normally no problem at all. Sometimes I open one and it's read-only; how did that happen?
