When I try to insert clip art on a particular workstation running Office 2003 Pro it used to have an option on the bottom right corner of the screen called "Clip Art on Office online".  Now that option is missing.  Also when I go into the Microsoft Clip Organizer the "Clips Online" button is greyed out.  It is working fine from other workstations on our network.  Does anyone have some ideas on how to get this going again?

Have you checked here for updates as well as downloading any available clipart for your environment to see if this helps?

All updates are installed.  I referenced the KB's you mentioned but they did not seem to help either.  I'll try the repair option next.

At one point, after upgrading XP to SP2, had some related problems and it was "pop up" blocker related, so this may apply to you as well:

I tried the re-install and disabling the pop up blocker, but still no dice.  At this point I think I may need to try completey uninstalling, the re-installing Office.  I'd like to find a more elegant solution if possible.

If you're not in an urgent time-based situation, wait, others may have remedies.

I'll most likely remove and re-install tomorrow.  Any last minute ideas?

I hate waiting for the web-based on-line help, so I have turned that feature off. As a result, I lost access to the on-line clip art feature.

To restore it in Excel 2003, I just did the following:
1) Open the Help...Microsoft Excel Help menu item
2) In the resulting task pane, choose "Online content settings" (at the bottom of the list in middle of task pane)
3) Choose "Online content" tab
4) Check the boxes for and under "Show content and links from Microsoft Office Online"
5) Close Excel, then restart it
6) You can now access the online clip art using the "Insert clip art" icon on the Drawing toolbar, or using the Insert...Picture...Clip Art menu item. The "Clip Art on Office Online" icon now appears at the bottom of the resulting task pane

I went a little too quickly and did not split the points.  Moderator, can you please split them as defined above?

Thanks.

Points are not that important, really.  Can't buy bread with it (smiling).

But if you feel that I added value to your process here, you can always use the "feedback" link next to one of my questions to let me know.

Bottom line, I'm happy that you are.

Thaaron,
Asta may have been reluctant to reopen the question for a proper point split, but I'm not.

I would have never tried answering the question without Asta's specific request.
