Windows 7: Curious mouse behaviour in Office 2003

Curious mouse behaviour in Office 2003

I have a MS optical mouse with the wheel-click set to double-click. Every program on my machine accepts this double-click setting accept for MS Office 2003 Professional; it accepts it as a simple single click no different from a left click. I have always d/l and installed all Office 2003 updates and I am curious/frustrated why this is happening. All other MS programs (win7, wordpad, notepad, etc.) accept the wheel double click but not Office 2003 Pro (all components). Very interesting! Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

Incidentally, I tried another couple of mice and the same thing happens.

I have Office 2003 Professional. I tried it on MS Word and it will not work in mine either.

BTW, I'm in the process of dumping the old Office 2003 as it is in the same Microsoft non support status as Windows XP.

I'm trying out Libre Office and it seems to be doing OK. I'm trying Mozilla Thunderbird as an Outlook 2003 replacement as I don't like Windows Live Mail.

I have installed the latest LibreOffice and I am truly happy with it; the only complaint is converting files with tables to doc files. I also installed Thunderbird and used it for a month but it took so long to load that it got on my nerves and I decided to give WLM a chance. So far, it has been behaving well and doing everything it is told to do. You may wish to take a quick look at a thread I created about writing an entire email and then at the end discovering you have the default set on the wrong language. But with the help of this group we got that solved too.

Thanks for your reply. Regards.

I've been using Thunderbird for about a month and haven't had any of the problems you have had. The only negative is the addressing. In Outlook if you click on the "To" or "info", it will bring up the address book listing and allow including what addresses you want. Thunderbird does not do that, or at least I haven't found out how to do that.

In Thunderbird, it automatically copied over all my Outlook folders and address book. In WLM, everything has to be done manually.
