Hi Ho All!

Sometimes I think I'm going crazy!
I'm using my home laptop and I tried to access the Symbol dialog box from
the Insert menu in WORD and it is not there. It is NOT just greyed out
either. It does not exist on the menu at all. Right now I'm using Office Pro
2003; but I didn't have it when I was using Office 2000 on the laptop
I just don't get it. I know it's supposed to be there because it says so in
Help. BUT IT IS JUST NOT THERE. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.
(Although this sounds odd, I'm beginning to think that it has something to
do with the program running on my laptop instead of a desktop. On my desktop
(runnning Office 2000), I can access the command.)
Has anyone out there ever encountered such an oddity as this?
