Re: Error code:1706 installation package "ProPlus.MSI" to be installed from XP CD Rom
I tried what you suggested and no joy...same message kept on appearing no matter which way I tackled it.
In the meantime, I have been able to acquire a CD-ROM of Office Pro XP and slotted this in at the appropriate moment when prompted and hey presto! The excell files came back to life!
Everything is now back to normal (on the Excel front).
Many thanks for your patience and advice. It is nice to know that there are experts out there who are willing to advise us amatuers in their hour of need.
P.S. Still don't know why the excell access dropped out of sync in the first place.
One of lifes little mysteries.
