Default Reinstalling Office 2003

Hi all,

I am having problems with Outlook 2003, and I am probably going to have to
uninstall & reinstall all of MS Office in order to fix things in Outlook.

I tried the repair option, but no luck there. My question is...If I
uninstall Office 2003, will I have to reinstall all of the security updates
all over again? I have dialup, and it took a long time to download some of
the updates!

Wonder if MS has a CD rom with all of the Office updates on it?

Sounds like taking a sledgehammer to crack a nut.
What problems do you have?

Default Reinstalling Office 2003

I cannot use the Import, Export function (I am getting an error message that
says--"Internal Translation System Error").

Nor can I add contacts to the address book.

To what and from what do you wish to export?

You don't add contacts to the address book. You add them to a Contacts
folder. The address book contains no information.

I will have to research your answer, since I'm fairly new to Outlook.

The first time I installed Outlook, I was able to import my address book
from OE6...Why the error now?

cannot be opened.

Default Reinstalling Office 2003

Correction, I can add contacts to Outlook’s address book…It’s just that I
cannot import them from Outlook Express 6. In fact, I cannot use the Import
and Export wizard at all in Outlook 2003.

It keeps giving me the same old error message —“Internal Translation System
Error”.

I have tried Google, Dog pile, etc, and cannot find anything related to this
error message.

I’m paving new ground here I reckon. : -(

When does the error message arise during the Import/Export process? Give
more detail, have you exported the Windows Address Book (that is part of
OE6)? What format did you choose?

Default Reinstalling Office 2003

Hi Ernie,

I guess I need to start from the beginning.

I installed Office 2003 about 2 to 3 months ago, but my system resources
could not quite handle Outlook, so I uninstalled it for the time being, until
I could get more ram. But before I uninstalled it, I had imported my
contacts from OE6 (.csv format--This was stored on a USB drive) into Outlook.
After deciding to uninstall Outlook, I decided to delete the .pst (?) folder
that had been created, and thus deleting my contacts with it.

Finally, after installing more ram this week, I reinstalled Outlook. But now
I when I click on "File" / "Import and Export"--I get the error message.

I've tried a repair install a couple of times, but it has been of no help.

Just to be absolutely clear, the Import/Export Wizard does not appear, but
the error message box does, when you click Import/Export on the File menu?

I assume, from your subject line, that you have done a complete reinstall of
Office 2003. I am out of ideas, but you *might* get an answer from a search
of the MS Knowledge Base rather than Google.

Good luck,
ern.
