[quote="hccdecatur"]I am having the same issue on Version 11 and spent all night trying to figure out what to do. I have looked at Microsoft and powerchurch's website as well, downloaded programs, and file downloads and still I cannot open an absentee report formatted in Word. What do I need to do? Are there any easy steps to resolve this?
I am on Vista and have Office 07 ver 2. I am unsure how the file was created, but have been able to view previous files just like that, as recent as last week.[/quote]
Just a friendly bit of advice, since this really had nothing to do with the Ver 10 maintenance release, it would have been a good idea to start a new topic under Membership. This question could have gotten lost.
Now to your problem, as has been pointed out, the problem is with MS Office, not Powerchurch. Powerchurch uses a report writer program that creates Word files in the format most often used. Unfortunately, this hits against Microsoft's penchant to 'do things for you', in this case increase security.
