Save Changes? #2

Sometimes, but not always, Excel asks if I want to save the current file, 
even though I've made no changes.  Does anyone know why this occurs, and if 
there is a setting I can change to avoid the prompt unless actual changes are 
made?

Thank you.

There are a number of functions that will update themselves when 
the workbook is opened, and this causes Excel to act as though 
the workbook has been changed. These functions include NOW() , 
TODAY(), ROW(), etc. See Volatile Functions in help for more 
info.

Excel window keeps changing
Hi, I have a weird problem on my home computer while using Excel. If I don't use the screen for a few minutes, the Excel window shrinks to about a fourth of its size.

Handling of savings accounts and 401k accounts in the budget
I noticed that Money treats money that I contribute to a 401k account or transfer to a savings account as an expense. Basically, the more I contribute, the worse my budget looks. Is there a way to prevent this from happening? Right now, I exclude transfers to my savings account from the budget and it solves the problem, however, I shouldn't have to manually do this each time. For 401k contributions, I cannot find a way to do this. Why does it show up as "an expense" (what Category???) instead of something like Transfer Out of Budget Accounts? The 401k cash account sh...

FileNotFound returned by Bitmap::Save() when saving to stream
I have a little chunk of code which is supposed to take a bitmap image and save its PNG encoding into a block of memory. The problem is, I keep getting a FileNotFound error back from Save().

Save to unProtect a Document?

How could I protect the documents so that when they open them, they dont make changes to the server version, but save their OWN version and do what they want?

I take this to mean that the links are not absolute references. Is there any way to do this without having to reconstruct the links? Thanks ...
