This was discussed in a thread or two previously, but I lost the thread and don't think a conclusion
was reached anyway. A brief description:
Word documents cannot be embedded in SW2001 drawings using Office 2000 on Windows 2000. Word docs
previously embedded using earlier software versions are now lost or do not open or do not show in a
Is there anybody running this particular configuration of software where embedding Word docs works?
To fix the problem, I have tried downloading and installing
1- critical updates package for Windows 2000
2- upgrades to Windows 2000 SP2
3- upgrades to IE 5.5 SP1 (what the hell, I was on a roll)
4- upgrades to Office 2000 SP2
One workaround is to use the Link option when inserting the object instead of embedding. I've also
heard that upgrading to Office 2001 (or is it XP?) solves the problem, but cannot verify this. I
reject the upgrade, even if it did work. I want a fix, not a forced upgrade.
