Hello pro,

Microsoft word is my world; all my document work is with Microsoft word. A bit I have a simple or common error which is resulting by adding or inserting an equation in the word document. Everything else is working to my knowledge. Using Windows XP operating system, so I need to reinstall Microsoft word? And I tried this in windows 7 same problem. Pro’s assist me to find the solution. Thanks.

The program used to create this object is Equation. That program is not installed on your computer. To edit this object, you must install a program that that can open the object.
