Hello

We have some templates (about 100) that have been designed in Office 2003, all the PC's have now been upgraded to Office 2007 and now some of the formatting options are greyed out. Once including the bullet point menu option.

The strange thing being, if we customise the toolbar and add a bullet formatting menu to the ribbon the new one works, the old one is still disabled but changes color as if it's been clicked....

I have attached a template as an example to see if it's just our machines?

I have managed to resolve this myself. The documents had been protected in Microsoft Office 2003 and a password applied. When  opened in 2007 it showed as unprotected. However a quick VB script proved otherwise.

So I then made an application to open each document, unprotect it and save it to a new location.

If anyone would like the source for this let me know.
