Viewing Fax Problem

I'm using Windows SBS 2003 and am viewing faxes throught Sharepoint.  I can pull up any fax but it only shows me the first page.  It opens with quicktime in internet explorer.  Any ideas?
Thanks,
Ryan

Is it an option to use Windows Picture and Fax Viewer?

If it is an option then you need to change your default viewer that views TIFF files.

Double Click on My Computer.  Click Tools > Folder Options > File Types.  Scroll down to TIFF, click on it and then click Change.

Under Recommended Programs, click Windows Picture and Fax Viewer.  now you should be able to read your faxes and see more than one page.

HOpe that helps,

Good suggestion but no go.  I made the change and it still opens in QuickTime even though it says Windows picture and fax viewer.  Must be something in explorer? I did restart my computer and double checked the file association.  I also saved the file to the desktop were it did open in the fax viewer however still will only show one page.  I have downloaded multiple faxes with more than one page to verify this.  Any other ideas?  Thanks :)

When you opened them in Widnows Picture and Fax viewer you did try click the left and right arrows that are at the bottom right?

I'd check Quicktime because I know there is a setting that will override associated file extensions.  I'd go ahead and uncheck that option.

Hehe...Yep I did try using the arrows :)   Okay I got it....Needed to change the file association from Microsoft Picture and Fax Viewer to Microsoft Office Document Imaging.
