When you delete a section from a Microsoft Office OneNote 2003 notebook, any audio note files (*.wma) that are associated with pages in the deleted section do not delete from the folder that the notebook resides in.


To work around this problem, you must manually delete the *.wma files from the notebook folder. To determine the *.wma file that belonged to the pages of the section that you deleted, the file name of the first *.wma file will be the same as the page title with the file name extension of .wma.

Additional audio note files on the same page will also have the same name as the page title, followed by a hyphen and a number, starting with the number two(2) and then followed by *.wma.

For example: If the page is named "Test page", the file names of the audio notes for that page are "Test page.wma", "Test page - 2.wma", "Test page - 3.wma" and so on.


Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
