Save a Copy/Overwrite changes dialog box
All of a sudden, this dialog box pops up every time I want to save something
in Excel 2002. The box says,
"The file '<file name>' may have been changed by another user since you last
saved it. In that case, what do you want to do?
__ Save a Copy
__ Overwrite changes
even though I'm the only user that's changed anything in the past 3 years.
The shared workbook command has not been changed at all, so that can't be the
problem. The settings are the same as the ones I have at home for personal
spreadsheets that don't have this dialog box.
Than...Save a copy or Overwrite changes

The file 'Resources.xls' may have been changed by another
user since you last saved it. In that case, what do you
want to do?
You need to select Save a copy or Overwrite changes
and then you click OK or Cancel.
What can I check to make sure that I am set up properly
and stop getting this message?
I know you said it is not a shared workbook/file, but it
sounds exactly like what Excel ...Overwrite changes dialogue box

...Index Services overwrites last logon time
In Exchange 2003/SP1 I have used to open Exchange System Manager – Mailbox
store – Mailboxes and check the last logon time column , so I can get list of
users who did not use their accounts in the last x days….
The problem is that after I have enabled the Indexing feature in Exchange to
run everyday at 3:00 AM , it overwrites the last logon time of all mailboxes
, so I can see that the last logon time for all my users is 3:00Am
Does any one know how to workaround this problem?
Also it seems that the Index service can not login to the mailboxes of users
who have never logged on...Problems editing text in a cell...overwrites some characters

to re enter, can anyone tell me what is going on with this?

-----------------------------...combo box selection overwrite issue
We have a combo box on a form. When you start typing i auto populates with
the closest record and keeps it highlighted so if you keep typing it keeps
pulling the next closest. It works fine with all records except one. if you

keeping it highlighted so you can type over it changes to insert typing and
anything you type just goes after the Ho but all the other text it auto
populated is still there. So if you want to select any other record that
start with Ho you have to scroll through the list. I haev looked at...How can I overwrite the last line data in text or csv file from VB

I have a few excel 2003 users that have xls files on a server, but they
are the only ones using. Often, when they save, it tells them someone
else may have changed the file, rename or overwrite. They are a bit
concerned, It appears to be a mac services thing, I found the following
MS article in support.
But it doesnt mention a patch for excel 2003. Should the users just
get used to hiting overwrite?
For Excel 2003 no patch has been issued AFAIK
Follow the instructions for editing the Registry or continue hitting overwrite.
