Emailing files changes formatting

I am regularly emailing an excel file back and forth.  For some reason, the 
page set-ups (page breaks, paper orientation, paper size) are altered when 
the file is opened on the other end.  We're both using office 2002...  I 
can't figure out why the formatting goes wonky by emailing the table.  I 
don't have problems emailing it to anyone else.

Nothing to do with emailing...

Printouts may, and probably will, be different any time a workbook is 
printed from computers with different print drivers or installed/default 
fonts, or from different printers.

To minimize the problem, make sure you're using standard fonts and font 
sizes, your default fonts and font size (Tools/Options/General) are the 
same, and all machines have the same (usually latest) print drivers.

Can't forward to an external email address...
We have a user that uses his external AOL account as well as his company email account. He has asked me to forward all company mail to his external AOL account. I figured I'd be able to just go into the delivery options on the "Exchange General" tab for his user profile and forward to the appropriate address. However, you cannot enter just any address in there, it forces you to select an address from the directory - of course his AOL address is not there. Is there an easy way to forward all mail from his internal account to an external account? I tried creating a rule on his Out...

Email
I have created a simple Access database that our HR department will use to input demographic information on a new employee, as well as what software, access, etc. a new employee will need. Again, it is VERY simple, but what I can't figure out is how to create a button that the HR staff can click on and the file, with all the information, is emailed to our IS department. Can this be done? You can setup a report to based on your current record and email it using SendObject or using Outlook automation. This does require a minimal amount of VBA programming in either case. If you sear...

Publisher Can Not Open Files from a Dif. Version--Help
I have Publisher 2000 version SP-3 (what a strange version!) I'm trying to open a publisher file that was created in Pub 2000 version 6.0 and it won't let me.

outlook email questionaire
I want to send an email to clients that has a questionaire on it with text answers. I want them to be able to answer the questions and then click a button at the bottom of the page that will send it directly to my email without them having to enter my address. How do I do this? Well, i's possible to do what you want (mail a form to someone that's editable on the receiving end and runs code to send mail when done) but is not easy. Check out www. outlookcode.com for some ideas on how to approach this. If you are not using an exchange server, I'd recommend using Form Regions...

My date format will not work.
If I type a date, 02/28/05 in a cell, it changes to somthing like 06/02/1955. Even when I change the format, date, and change selections, 2/28/2005, or Monday, February 28, 2005. It will default back to some other month, date and year. I know that it worked correctly on Friday, 2/25/05, does anyone know of a bug or update that could have caused this problem?

email addresses in memory
An outlook 2003 user states that when sending out an email and when they type in a letter in the "to" area the email addresses that were in memory when you type a letter or name are gone. They said they didn't do anything different. The addresses are in the contact list but there is nothing in memory so you have to type the whole address in. Is this possible or can address in memory be deleted or removed? They are stored in the *.nk2 file located in Docs&Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook (by default) You dont have to type the address in, just click the &...

Unlinking tracked emails in CRM 3.0
I find that once an email is linked to/tracked by CRM (Customer, Client, Activity) it can't be unlinked! only deleted.

Missing text in email
I recently installed Exchange 2003. From time to time when my users send email outside the company there messages are missing text upon arrival. The text missing could be two sentences at the end of a paragraph and the next one starts okay, or it could be a very words missing here and that. Any ideas of this Michelle P. Michelle: I know you have probably thought about this already, but do you have any type of content inspection system installed on your Exchange server? Or anything installed that stamps a message disclaimer on the message. Is the message changed by the clien...

Emails not leaving outbox
Hi all - I am having what seems to be a common problem, but all of the suggested fixes I found did not work. I have set up SQLServer to use MAPI to email notifications. I have Outlook 2000 installed and configured and working. The SQLServer notifications part isworking too. The only thing I can't figure out is the emails never leave the outbox until I start Outlook and click Send/Receive. Then they are all sent fine. I read some articles mentioning MAPISP32, which appears to be the culprit. From what I see it's supposed to spool emails that are in the Outlook outbox. I found after I ...

linking to external file based on cell value
Hello folks, I am wondering if it is possible to set up a link within excel that references an external file using a cell value in the main spreadsheet. For example: this is the current setup =[expense_allocation.xls]Jan04!$G$5 instead of the Jan04 in the link, I would like a cell reference I tried this but it does not seem to work: ="[expense_allocation.xls]" & A1 & "!$G$5" where A1 = Jan04 Any ideas would be appreciated.

file name and workshet name function?
Dear group: I have Soooo many worksheets (since 1985 with many software types!) that I have a hard time recalling where a past work sheet is in my hard drive these days. Like Date and Time, I wish that I could apply a function that would list the workbook file name as a direct display in a cell on any given work sheet. I have often done this as the Header so that when I print it, that information appears without fault. I put the date and the time on the upper left, and the worksheet name & the workbook filename on the upper right, in small pint type. That way, whe...

How do I convert Organizer 6.0 file to text file for import to Outlook
Many people have said to just export an organizer file as a text file, then import to Outlook. I can't even get past that step. I am using Organizer 6.0 and Outlook 2002. When I open Organizer and go to Export, there is not even a file available to export. The only file I am aware of is an .OR6 file, but that is not one of the options on the export function.

Outlook Client
Hi all, In the web client there is an email icon available from the views which allows you to send a direct email to the selected records in the view. Does anyone know if there is any way to call this from the Outlook client. Appreciate it :) cheers Nathan Hi, I'm afraid I can't help you out on this one. But I found that it's not only the icon missing in the Outlook client, but as soon as the Outlook client is active, the icon disappears in the Webclient also.
