    Hi,

    I'm having several problems with Office 2008 on Mac. I've installed it at the beginning of December (as soon as I got my new MacBook) and it is kept up-to-date. I have probkems both with Word (severe !) and Powepoint (mild). In Word, I simply cannot save or edit any type of document, whether it is something I created in Windows and ported to Mac, or created new in Mac. As soon as I open a document and then try to save it, after having added whatever character to it, Word crashes with the message "Word has encountered a problems and needs to close". So I basically cannot use it.
    In Powerpoint, I don't have problems in editing old files or create new ones, but I cannot add 'Objects' to a presentation (e.g. an equation). As soon as I click on 'Insert->Objects' I have the same message I get in Word ("Powerpoint has encountered a problem and needs to close"). Any idea what the problem might be ?

    Thanks for any help !

    Fab

    You might want to call tech support. If you bought a retail copy of Office 2008, you get two or three free calls to tech support. (Sorry, I can't remember which number it is!) They'll be able to help you troubleshoot.

    Regards,
