SYMPTOMS

In Microsoft Word 6.x for Windows or Word 7.x for Windows 95, when you use the Word 97 Import Converter to open a Microsoft Word 97 file containing an OLE object, a border is added to the right side of the graphic.

CAUSE

The Word 97 Import Converters, Msword8.cnv (Word 6.x) and Mswrd832.cnv (Word 7.x), do not handle OLE objects appropriately when all of the following conditions occur:

  • Initially, the file was created with an OLE object in Word 97.
  • The file is opened in Word 95 using the Word 97 Import Converter.
  • In Word 95, the OLE object is edited in the Picture Editor, saved in Word 95 format, and then closed.
  • The file is opened in Word 97, saved in Word 97 format, and then closed.
  • The file is opened in Word 95 using the Word 97 Import Converter.
