Default Grouping objects (mainly text boxes)


I have several objects on a Word 97 - 2003 document (see attached) which need to be grouped together into one object. I've looked at the Help function and I know where the "Group" button is. However, when I highlight the objects, the "Group" button is greyed out and I cannot click on it.

Assistance on this would be appreciated

Kind regards.

JimP will become famous soon enough

I had no problem grouping the objects. They are as attached (I added a second page with the grouped objects copied/pasted).
