File locked for opening
I'm sure I've seen this before, but my memory is failing ;-)
For the last two days, a worksheet that I use constantly opens with the
"File is locked for use by TA" message, and the usual dialoge box about
opening as Read-Only, Notify, etc. Although I'm networked, AFAIK, I'm
the only one with access to this file (and yes, it's on my own machine).
Anyway, I opened it Read-Only and saved it with the same filename in
another folder. So far, so good.
This morning I opened the "new" file, and got the same "File locked"
message. Also, when I activat...Error opening XLS file.

Yesterday, I exported my contacts from Outlook 2003 to use on another
PC. This export worked fine.
Since then (may just be coindidence), when I try and back up my
personal file using Outlook Personal Folders Backup, the "save backup"
button is blank and clicking on options gives the legend "No Personal
Folder files are currently open"
The last succesful backup was 3 February at 22:36.
Well, the Outlook file must be open as all e mail, calendar, contacts,
tasks & notes are available and working.

I get this error in Windows Media Player when trying to run a playlist made
of .jpegs - after some
try I found the problem is the .jpgs size being 4000x3000 pixel, the memory
size being about 3MB, while all is ok with another group of jpegs sized 3MB
too but with 2800x2100 pixels. The first group comes from digital photos
taken with the setting "12MB normal resolution" while the second group has
been taken by setting "6MB fine resolution". Is there some option to set to

...Corrupt File, Help with Possible Solution
We have an Access file that we believe is corrupt. The Access file contains
one table with 21 records and one form that shows all the fields in the
table. We can open the file, but when we open the table, Access crashes
instantly (it says Access has to close and do we want to send an error
report, no error message more descriptive than that I'm afraid). A box then
opens asking if we want to make a backup of the database - if we try this,
Access crashes again in the same way.
If we open the form, we can view the all of the records up to the 20th
record. If we try to move on...How to open registry file both ASCII and Unicode versions

or Unicode in the first place?

I'm trying to offload some messages in my Outlook Personal Folder.
I exported a folder as an ARCHIVE .pst file.
In outlook, it said the folder was 300mb. It seemed to run quite a while but
finally the PST file stopped incremeting in size at around 700mb. I let it
sit for a while and after it didn't increment anymore, I quite Outlook and

Now every time I launch Outlook, it creates a new '~archive.pst.tmp' file in

Yes, it does. Log on to Outlook in offline mode (on the General tab of

Two problems seem to be happening after moving my Outlook
files to a new computer. I've moved the Outlook.pst file,
as well as Outcmd.dat, and files such as .nk2, .fav, etc
from the Outlook directory. (Outlook 2002, Windows 2000).

for any .pab files, but none seem to exist. How can I
either move my address book, or get Outlook to recognize
my contacts as my address book?

some other method that can be used to automate this task.

You could modify the macro in the article "Find & ReplaceAll on a batch of

My mother has some files created with an older version of Publisher (she
doesn't remember which one). She is now using Publisher 2003 and it will not
open them. A search of this discussion forum revealed a solution to this
problem having to do with Norton Anti-virus; she does not have NAV but
instead runs Symantec Anti-virus Corporate Edition, which has no Office
plugin as NAV does.
I think she should go to Symantec and inquire. There are many support documents and
discussions about Windows XP service pack 2. Does she have a script blocking option?

I do not know what I did, but one of my excel sheet seem to have a lot of "empty" cells which doesn't seem to go away, ie, it is causing the scrollbar to become very thin vertically. I tried doing a Ctrl+Down Arrow to go to the last row of excel then select all rows beneath my data, then I tried delete rows, clear format, clear contents and all don't work
1) What caused this
2) How do I salvage this
Most of the time it is caused by (temporarely) entering something in a cell
"far away" from your real datacells or formatting such a cell.

A problem I run into is when I want to remove the jump drive. Even after I

maintains a file lock on the file. Why does Outlook do this?
Some common reasons why Outlook will not shut down completely when you click
either the X or Exit:
1. PDA synchronization software with your PDA in the cradle.
2. WinFax Pro (especially 10.02 in Outlook 2003) - contact their support
