    Have you checked for updates? If there are none, try reinstalling MS Works over the existing one, hopefully it will repair the damaged file. Remember to make a System Restore point before doing this.

    Thanks for the reply Canuck. I did as you suggested and reinstalled Works from the CD. The same problem is there still, but now I can't even open an apppointment in the Calendar.
    I also noticed that all the data from the old Calendar (and also from my Address Book) is still there - shouldn't that have gone when I uninstalled Works ?
