    I have someone who is sending me a tif file. He scans in a document with 3
    pages but when I get it I can only see one page. He has a newer version of
    Microsoft Office I have Microsoft office 2003. What can we do so I can see
    the whole scan?

    MS Office Picture manager will only show the first page of a multi-page TIF
    file. You can possibly open the file in XP's Fax program if you have that
    or download and install irfanview (Google for it.) It can view and create
    the multi-page tif files.

    Open it in Microsoft Office Document Imaging, that is what it was
    designed for.

    According to Wikipedia, the association for *.tif files was removed for MODI
    in Office 2003 SP3.

    The OP could download and install IrfanView. That has the ability to view
    multipage tif files.

    "SP3" broke it, here is the fix

    TTIF, TIFF, and MDI files are no longer associated with Microsoft Office
    Document Imaging (MODI) after you install Office 2003 Service Pack 3 or
    certain post-SP3 security bulletins

    Irfanview works really well. You can manually scroll through pages using the
    bar at the top of the screen once installed. You will also need to install
    the plugins and Ghostscript too.

    Go to -
    http://download.cnet.com/IrfanView/3000-2192_4-10021962.html?part=dl-IrfanView&subj=dl&tag=button

    to download Irfanview.

    to download the needed plugins. Click on TRY IT FREE

    And go here - http://pages.cs.wisc.edu/~ghost/doc/GPL/gpl871.htm

    to download Ghostscript. Scroll down the page to the Microsoft Windows
    section.

    The plugins, perhaps, but why GhostScript?

    There is a postscript plugin built-in to Ghostscript that helps view, modify
    and print certain aspects of .tiff files properly.

    Ah, I see what you mean. I think at one time it didn't require this (which is why I
    asked). The version I have now does, though. Pops an error message box about how
    it needs GhostScript if you try to go past the first page of a multi-page TIF.

    Thanks.
