new excel files not saving across wireless network

In the past I have been able to save a new excel file back to the desktop 
server.  Now when I try it indicates that the save location is not available. 
 But if I save the file locally first and then back to the desktop server it 
saves ok.  Is this an excel setting or some network condition preventing save 
of new excel file?  Thanks.

Default properties for new folders
How does one set the default properties applied when creating new email folders? Currently, when I create a new folder, it is created with the AutoPreview turned on by default.

Need to Transfer Files Between Money and Quicken
I've got an interesting problem here. I need to transfer files between Money 2002 and Quicken Premium 2004. The first four attempts at having Quicken read exported QIF files has been a disaster.

There is supposed to be a tool to convert the file format, but the fine print says it is for converting between previous versions of Quicken and Quicken 2004, but it "may work" for converting Money files. A Quicken guru says I need to export Money files to XML in order to bring the files i...
