I have received e-mails with publisher-files attached. When I try to open
the files, my Publisher comes up with the error-message (translated from
danish to english): "Publisher can't open files, which are created in another
version of Publisher."
When I look in the properties of the files, I can see the author's name, but
not the version of the publisher, with which the files are created, or the
Publisher-format of the files. (It should have been a goo...Dropdown menu

I have a strange problem when I try to open an Excel file from My Computer or
Windows Explorer. I get an error message to the effect that "Windows cannot

Not too sure what I've done, but any help fixing this problem would be most
One possibility is that the file is nested too deep in the filing system.
There is a limit to the number of characters that can be used for a file
path. For Excel I thing this is about 234; for Windows it is more.

Need to be able to enter first several letters of a name and have the
dropdown pick them up as I type in the name. Had it on a demo worksheet in
my "learn" files BUT lost it somewhere. Please refer me to where I can
pick up some samples to use.. Thank You..

My mother-in-law doesn't want to pay for an upgrade to Quickbooks to
manage her small rental/sales property business. Has anyone found it
fairly easy to duplicate the effort in Excel so that one could just
stick with that? Or, is there a template out there that you would
recommend using to do this?

I have a number of classes in one assembly. I'd like to use XSD.exe to
generate a schema for just one class ("Parse Rules") and its nested child
classes. Is there an attribute that will allow me to do this?
I tried running XSD on the entire assembly, with the plan to delete the
unnecessary classes from the .xsd afterwords. However, it complained that a
certain class "cannot be serialized because it does not have a default
public constructor." (This was true, but irrelevant for my purposes -- I
didn't need a schema for that particular class.)

The "News" option is gone from the Go menu in Outlook 2003. I have read the

know what to do about it?

How are skins used in MFC dialog applications.
When a skin is loaded on a dialog, certain areas
of the skin should map to the various controls.

the button is circular in shape. How do I achieve these
I don't think there is anything built in to do automatic skinning in MFC.
