Reading .wks file
Greetings...according to the Excel "help" file, as well as the file extension listing, I *should* be able to read an *.wks file, but Excel insists that it cannot. I am pretty sure the file was created in Microsoft Works. Is there a converter somewhere that I can download/install? Cheers - S2
Excel can read Works 2.0, not later. You have to save them in Works as excel
files or Works 2.0 or get a commercial

Hi, I've got a very large txt file that I need to import into excel. It has

If you're using xl2007, then that data will fit.
Open the .txt file and choose delimited by |
If you're using xl2003 and below, you could use your favorite text editor to
make several smaller .txt files (65536 rows or smaller) and import each into

The pst file is stored in the profile path of the MSOUTLOK
Since the path of the pst can be varied by the user, as can its name, ie it
neednt be in the install default path, your app would first have to search
for the pst, then you would have to figure out if it/which was the current

I have gone from Windows 2000 running Outlook 2000 to Windows XP Pro running
Outlook 2003. When I try opening my saved .pst file in the new Outlook I get a message
saying "File access denied. You do not have permission required to access to file

my saved mailbox.pst or archive.pst? TIA
How did you try opening it? is this a local .pst file? If it is not on
your C: drive, is it marked Read-Only?

I have Excel 2003 running alongside 2007.
Double clicking an excel file causes it to open in 2007; how do I force 2003
to open the files instead?
You most likely have to reset your file association from 2007 to 2003.
Close Excel first and On the Windows Taskbar
1) Start>Run "excel.exe /unregserver"(no quotes)>OK.
2) Start>Run "excel.exe /regserver"(no quotes)>OK.
See the space between exe and /regserver
You might have to designate a full path to excel.exe for Office 2003
In that case Start>Run "C:\your path to\office11\excel.exe" ...scrambled excel file

through GetData Back. It has an .xls extension, but when I try to open

I will attach the file to see if someone can figure this out for me.

...How to give other users read-only access to Calendar
I want to allow the group Everyone to have read-only access to a calendar in
a certain mailbox. I can do this by granting the permission 'Full mailbox

particular user). However this also allows people to to do everything (ie:
they become read-write users).
I notice that every mailbox in the system has 'Read permissions' granted to
group Everyone. This does not allow other people to open items in the
