Paste Values not working in Excel 2003 (?)

Using Excel 2003 with Win xp Pro

I copy a range of cels, then I choose EDIT > PASTE SPECIAL > VALUES and it
does NOT paste ALL the cel contentent... It does paste all the cels, but
only the first 3 lines of each cel's content.

Is there any limitation in the number of characters ?

Paste special treats cells as a picture
I just got a new computer, and a newer version of excel, which is great, but whenever I try to copy from one file to another, my paste special function treats the copied cells as a picture. Instead of the normal paste special popup, where it asks me how I want the data to come out, I get a different popup that shows the source as a "Microsoft Office Excel Worksheet Object." It asks me what format I want the picture to come out as, and gives me a list of different file formats. If I try to just paste a link, it puts a picture of the other file on the new one.

I have a spreadsheet set up in a table format with several column with headings. I then have hundreds of rows of data. Is it possible to set up a word document that I can transfer each row into a different word document. i.e a word document that contains the same heading except rather than across the way the headings are set apart in a formal fashion in the word document and I can then just set up a link or something similar so it imports only the data i need it to import hope that makes sense??

Client archive of Outlook 2003 folders...
I recently setup an Exchange Server 2003 (SBS 2003) environment for my company email. I am using DNS/SMTP to send/recieve all emails and the exchange databases (as opposed to my .pst files). My question is regarding the archiving of client (Outlook 2003) mail folders (inbox, sent, deleted, etc...). I am use to doing it at the individual workstation level. Does that change with Exchange or am I still setting up each workstation to archive to a .pst file based on my settings? Also, I would love to find a way to lock down the Outlook clients to all look and act the same. Is that desire a ...
