My boss and I were working on a Word (2003) document at work Friday and freaky things happened. (on our Windows PCs)
1. We had a Table with 6 columns we were filing in data and he tried to print it in Landscape and couldn't - no matter HOW he tried it always came out Portrait. SO.... "Mac to the rescue" ... I downloaded it ,set Landscape - shrunk to 90% and VIOLA ! printed in Landscape on my Mac. I emailed him the corrected file and he tried to print it out on his PC again and .... crap - portrait !! Beats the sh!t outta me what's going on !!
2. We had a conference call with other committee members at 1PM... one of my colleagues in Connecticut has Office 2007 at UConn. With Word 2007 he could only see 4.5 columns- the other 1.5 columns were cut off.. he was downloading the same file we were (in a 2003 version- we don't have Office 2007 at CDC yet) !! ...So the new Office 2007 isn't compatible with older files ? WTF !!
Conclusion: WHAT a fscking mess !! Well the good thing is that they BOTH shut up about my Mac ! At least I could function, whereas they were SNAFUed.
