Security in Document Control

Hi experts,

Could you tell me what facility Excel has for document
control.  I am aware of sheet protection and passwording
etc but is there any way of doing the following:

1. Making the file unsavable (even with a different file
name) so changes can be made, printed out and submitted for
inclusion in the master file.

2. Having the file self delete after a certain period of time.

I just only want one copy of this file in existence, bar

thank you

Private Sub Workbook_BeforeSave(ByVal SaveAsUI As Boolean, Cancel A

If SaveAsUI = True Then
MsgBox "Restriction on FileSaveAs location!", vbCritical
Cancel = True
Exit Sub
End If

End Sub

there is no way to prevent someone from copying this file from th
explorer. this macro will only prevent saving it at another location o
another file from within excel.

Custom Record Selector Controls that don't work like the built-in ones
Hello, I've created my on 'Previous' and "Next' controls for record selecting over Access's built-in record selectors.because I wanted to get rid of (hide) the selector bar at the bottom of my form. My controls work fine up until I add a new record (using a custom control for that too). Once I add a new record, my 'Previous' and 'Next' controls no longer toggle through the existing records that I have. If I use the built-in selectors I do not have this problem, as everything works fine. I figure its because my record source for this form is...

Why can't I type beyond the first line of WORD document?
After months of working normally, new document in Office WORD 2007 will not allow me to type beyond the first line. I must have accidentally hit some function key which has thrown off the template? I've tried rebooting. I'm able to type more than one line in WordPad, paste it into a new WORD document, and continue typing normally. How can I restore normal function? What happens when you get to the end of the first line and continue typing? Does it still happen in Word Safe Mode? From Start | Run (Winkey+R), type in winword /a and press Enter.

Where can I download an open-document format add-in for Office 2004 for Mac?
Where can I download an open-document format add-in for Mac Office 2004? There is no such add-in, sorry.

Saved to invalid directory-is there a way to access the document?

Proper Security Settings on Exchange Install Folder?
I am trying to nail down the security of our Exchange 2003 servers before we start a mass migration off 5.5. One issue I am dealing with is securing the Exchange install directory, in my case c:\program files\exchsrvr I have a Microsoft Press Book "Secure Messaging with MS Exchange Server 2003" that talks about doing this on page 144, but the details aren't as clear as I would like them. For example, they say to remove the everyone inheritance. I don't have that. (thats not my question - but right away I'm seeing the book completely different from what I have) Th...

HELP trying to open Microsoft Works document from PC on a Mac
My daughter has been given a .wps document from the PC version of Microsoft Works. Does anyone know how to open and view this document on a Mac? I've tried Appleworks 6, Office 2004, OpenOffice, TextEdit. Thanks! The Microsoft Works format is slightly obsolete, as the Microsoft Works word processor has been gradually phased out over the years to be replaced by Microsoft Word. One solution would be to find a Windows PC with Microsoft Word on it, since Win Word has a .wps converter, if I remember correctly. Or better yet, you could ask the person who sent you the document to save it in...

Outlook 2003 Security

When i try and do this i get the box popup that says that i have to allow access, so i press 10 minutes and allow. The only problem is that i have too much stuff i think and it takes longer then 10 minutes to sync. Its also through a serial cable, so it doesnt help. But when the 10 mins is up, then it wont allow the sync to finish and so it drops the connection with the nokia without finishing what needs to be done.

Better control of axis ranges
I would like to make x-y charts in Excel 2000 with dynamic source data. That is, the user can select what data set he wants to display. To do this, I need better control of how the axis limits are defined. This can be achieved in one of two ways: 1. Use numbers from cells to define xmin, xmax, ymin, ymax. 2. Define in some way how auto-scaling decides what the min and max values are (I often find that the data gets "scrunched" into a small portion of the plot area). Method 1 is preferred, but 2 may also work. I would prefer to do this without writing a VBA macro, if possib...

Lebans Transparent Image Control
