I have an Excel 2000 data file that is corrupt and I can't open it with the
usual steps (e.g. excel viewer, web file save, linking, etc.) Now, when I
try demo versions of some advertised file recovery utilities, they seem to
work, but since it's only a demo download, I can't get more than a few lines
of the spreadsheet. Retail costs vary for the utilities, around $200-300+.

I need to create a new field in GP that will hold the file path to the file.

this isn't as easy as you might expect.
You don't say whether or not this is a vba form or a GP form.
Assuming GP form:
1. use modifier to add a button to the window
2. use modifier to add a field to the window
3. write vba code to call the common dialog to open the lookup window for

It is not obvious why you'd want to combine two XML files with Excel.

The users in my network are complaining about this problem:
They open Excel files from shared folder location and after changes in the

that the file with the original name disappears from the location, the
E0720002 file is there but with no (xls) extension and the users are left
without a clue about where the file is -- usually they do not read the
