But can she not get the home option.She cannot print in italics or bold and cannot underline.I have office 2007 and hers is office 2003 but I would have thought it would be the same on both versions

For the future, in Word 2003's menus go to "View > Toolbars" and make sure there is a tick against Formatting.

This is the toolbar that has the Bold, Italic, Underline buttons as well as others such as font type, colour & size, paragraph alignment etc.

Are you sure that the words are underlined or are they words that are not in the Word 2003 dictionary, and it is querying the words or the grammar by high- lighting them

ponytail,

"I have office 2007 and hers is office 2003 but I would have thought it would be the same on both versions"

Nope. 2007 introduced the hideous (IMHO) ribbon replacing the conventional toolbars used in previous versions.

If none of the above advise works, open the document in WordPad and format it there.
