Your comment "...tends to stress the machine's owner" sure caught my attention! ...and hit the nail right on the head...
The preface to my "clear picture" which launched me on my quest to slay the demons and dragons plagueing me and my pc, and, finally to build my own machine, was near mental and physical breakdown from the "stress" of these anomilies appearing on my screen and in my dreams.
The pleading wizard was not incl. with Office Standard 95 and I think it was omitted in Office 97 Standard (?)and Pro, if I'm not mistaken.
My fix, then, was to download the Wizard (using Win98se, Office 95))use the legal template to start,then, copy each completed doc-erase the text-and start all over with the legal 28 numbered line blank.
As indicated, I finally built my first machine 2 years ago and started with a fresh licensed version of win98se, which served me well until I built my current machine and bought a new licensed XP operating system after experiencing some missing file problems on the boot up from my 98 cd.
Next, as mentioned, due to some "anomilies" with Office 95, I decided to chance popping in the old Office 97 collecting dust for years; and I was doing fine until the "anomilies" and "apparations" began to resurface and my "APB" for "pc ghostbusters" was answered by yourself.
My own mental recovery began to take place when I first discovered the collection of misfits, demons, anomalies, and apparitions collected by Microsoft, captured, and coralled in their Knowledge Base at their website on the internet! What a relief! Maybe I wasn't as crazy as I thought I was! Microsoft was making programming errors-what a revelation! My epiphony!
I surmised, at first, that the "oversight" with the legal pleading wizard was Mr. Gates' personal distain for lawyers attributable to his legal problems....but not wanting to start any rumors or adverse folklore about his emminence I never mentioned it again and have no reason to pursue my suspicions...and being thankful that I have a computer to use in any event.
So, my thanks to you for, again, reminding me that this whole computer revolution is a process requiring some attention to the developments, updates, and progress being made. We all have an obligation and opportunity to participate.
I have downloaded the patches (sp1 and sp2) for Office 97 and installed them. I doubt that the Court will have much sympathy for my tardiness and travails but I am just now returning to my work and will let you know how things went. I'll just say, thanks, again, for your assistance, Dr. Bob. Best wishes.
