syncing excel 2007...

hi all community members...

I have excel 2007 and sync all my
office 2007 files to a online backup.

unfortunately for excel this is not done
I have to restart my computer 
(windows ultimate) for it to be synced
(the company is ‘humyo’ which I think is 
one of the best...)

I phoned them up and was told I must 
have ‘some sort of lock’ on these 
workbooks.

I have been through the settings and thought
it was privacy/personal information 
but am lost.

can someone please help and I look 
forward to a reply.

very much appreciated.

Paul.

I can't think of anything that is "some sort of lock" that would
prevent your backup from handling Excel files. Does the backup work
for other files in a folder where an unbacked up Excel file resides?
As far as the backup is concerned, there is no difference between file
types -- all files are treated as just a big stream of bytes.  Do you
have the file open when the back up is performed? 

I use Carbonite for offsite backups and I have never had any problems
related in any to Excel (no problems for any files, really).

hi Chip Pearson

sorry for the delay to my response.

yes, it seems to sync now, that I
updated the software (humyo).

....but have to close Excel for it to
sync...

better than nothing.

thanks for your input and advice.

Best.

Hi Paul,

I'm part of the UI Team over at humyo.com. The problem that you are
describing is caused by Excel locking the file while it's being used,
this is done to prevent any other application making changes to the
file while you have it open. As soon as you close the file humyo will
instantly start syncing the file online.

Our Development Team do plan to improve this in the future by
implementing "shadow copying" functionality which would get around the
file lock, how ever I'm not currently aware of any time scales for
this feature.

You would be best getting in touch with out support team or
subscribing to the SmartDrive change log to be notified of any future
improvements.

The changelog for the Windows version of SmartDrive can be found here

Outlook Creating Sync Problem Folders.....HELP
When Outlook 2003 perform the send/receive action. My mail comes in/out, however a box pops up showing there was an error. This error then goes into a sync folder as an email. I DID NOT create this folder. If I delete the sync folder, it re-creates itself. Any ideas on how to stop this madness? The sync folder is a system folder that Outlook needs and uses.

Excel updating from XML file
I'm having a littl edifficulty getting Excel to dynamically update from an XML file. The XML file is generated from a program and I would like the Excel file to dynamically update. Problem is that the location of the XML and Excel file can change, that is they can be anywhere on a hard drive but both are in the same directory. The mapping of the XML file in Excel appears to be a complete file path C:/data/report/.... but the location could change. They could be in C:/data/report/run1 or run2, I don't want to have to re-map each time a report is generated. Ideally I would like t...

POS Sync After Every Z Report
Hi All~ I'm wondering if it's the expected behavior to have a POS on another station sync every time a Z report is ran? Should the database sync every time? I thought only when the POS was in offline status. I don't believe the POS is offline everyday, but everyday when we take a Z report, the database syncs with the POS with the database. Is this expected? Hi Jerry, It syncs every z because there may be changes to the items, taxes and other databases. -- * "Jerry Penna" <jerrypenna@msn.com> wrote in message news:3ac97809.0411161303.32f35868@posting.googl...

Macro error after switching from Excel 2000 to Excel 2003
My company recently switched from Excel 2000 to Excel 2003 and now a macro I created does not work. It gives me the error 1004 and highlights the line of code where I set it up to open certain files in a folder. This macro has been working for 6 months without fail and only has problems opening the Excel files I created after the switch to 2003. Any help would be appreciated. Without any other info the only suggestion is to see if your sheets have different names. For example, a statement like: Sheets("Feb Sales").Cells(i, j+5) = k might cause a 1004 error if the new workb...

Outlook 2007 and digital certificates
Hello, I've been using Outlook 2007 for a while with a digital certificate I have from Comodo. It is annoying how every signed e-mail I sent, Outlook has to ask me _twice_ about granting access to the certificate in order to send _any_ e-mail I want to sign. I have already trusted the certificate using the Trust Center in Outlook but it doesn't help. If the window for granting/denying access showed up only once I would not be bothered at all, but why twice? I didn't have this problem in Outlook Express nor in Outlook 2003. Is there anyway to fix this? I'd be very thank...
