using underscores in file names instead of spaces
We are building several new models in excel for financial
and management reporting. There are several excel files
that are linking to other excel files maybe 3, or 4
folders deep in a directory structure. Please note that
these files may eventually be posted to the web.
My question. Is there any advantage to using underscores
instead of spaces in folder names, file names, and tab
names within the workbook? Windows does not seem to
require them and spaces work fine and spaces also look
better and make it easier to read. Will spaces create

I have a shared workbook with track changes off. I turned it off because I
have a macro to arrange the rows in a certain way which created a huge log.
The problem is that the file keeps growing. It starts out at 570k and by
noon, it is at 15 Mb.
To bring it back down, I have to take the book off shared, and put it back
on and it is back to normal.
Does anybody know the problem or know someone's website with experience in
....CSV to .PRN
I am having trouble saving a .CSV file as a .PRN format - it is cutting the
information in the sheet off about 20 columns in - any suggestions? I am
doing the basic File - Save as.
Have you formatted the sheet with a fixed-width font so you can set the field
widths exactly? What is sum of field lengths? There used to be a limit of ~240
characters per line in PRN files.

I have a spreadsheet with a list of email addresses in the first column. I
want to create a CSV file. If I choose Save as---> csv and then open the csv
file in Notepad the list is saved as a list with carriage returns after each
email address and no commas. So how do i turn the list into a continuous list
with no breaks and a comma seperating each one? I'm using Excel 2007
Open the file in MSWord and do an edit|replace (or the MSWord 2007 equivalent)
to change the paragraph mark (under the More button and then under the Special
button) to a comma.

I had my Exchange 2000 mailbox set up so my local computer would keep a
synchronized copy of the mailbox (so, an ost file). We then switched
to Exchange 2003, and in the process, the server is on the fritz. Is
there any way to open up the ost file to extract the data in there as a

they are any good, but they do offer services like what you are looking for.

I am currently working on a project that invloves
importing of CSV files to Excel. Double-clicking the CSV
file opens the file automatically in Excel. We have
enclosed our data in quotation marks (i.e. "SomeData") to
prevent errors arising from strings that have commas as
part of the data. This works fine for us.
However, The problem arises when we import data that look
like numbers written in scientific notation but are
actually some other data which should not be expressed in
scientific notation (example "1E306" is expressed

I recently installed a German version of excel and now when I open m

When I had the US version installed the data was split up after eac
comma and distributed into the corresponding cell.
How can I achieve the same thing in the German version

We have altered the isv.config file to show additional tabs and

They do not show in Outlook.
Should this customisation show in the sales for outlook client?
if you look in your _resources directory under wwwroot on the crm web server
you will see a file called OutlookClient_sample.xml
you use this file for the outlook client config file. so you duplicate
anything in isv.config to this file and call it i think OutlookClient.config

Hello, here's the situation: I downloaded an .xls file from my broker and
opened it in Excel. The original file was delimited by commas and I had to
choose comma delimited in order for Excel to display it in columns/rows
correctly. I made some changes to the file, then saved it with a new name.
The problem is, I can find no way to save it as a comma delimited file
again. Saving it as a Workbook places quotes around the commas and creates
spacing between text (when I view it in Wordpad), and saving it as a Text
File (Tab delimited) does just that--makes it TAB delimited, not comma...Converting a file

My OS X system supports long file names just fine, but when I open these

Take a look at CStdiofile and CString::Format() (for output) and
CString::Tokenize() (for parsing input). You can use ReadString() and
WriteString() to access the file line by line.

I work with a lot of csv files all day and they have to be this format for
other applications and scripts to use them.
Everytime I save Excel prompts "filename.csv may contain features that are
not compatible with csv, do you want to keep this format". This is the case
even with Control S. The only formating is that I make the columns big
enough for me to read whats in each cell.
Anyway - can I turn off this prompt so that Excel just saves the file as csv?
