Are you sending the message as text only? If so all formatting will
disappear. If you want to retain your formatting you'll need to send your
messages as HTML. You can check this in your Outlook options.

...Formatting Lost in Excel 2007
I've spent a lot of time googling but all I really came up with is
that it may be due to links (which I have deleted) so hopefully
someone out there will have an answer.
We have a very large workbook that has been used since before 2005
that we have never had a problem with. Two months ago, we started
using Excel 2007 but had no issues. In about mid-April when opening
the file, all of the formatting is gone! So we assumed someone saved
it as the wrong file so we copied an older version of the file and
reformatted the entire thing. Saved it and reopened and no f...Windows XP: Open file in read-only: Word, Excel, Visio
I'm often sharing files on a network drive with someone. Often, one
of us knows that we don't need to open a file for modification, and we
only need read-access. Is there a way to open a file in read-only
mode so that when someone does need to open it for modification, the
read-only user is not blocking that?
If there is not a way to do this native to Windows XP, is there a way
to do it from the three applications that we use most, namely Word,
Excel, Visio? All are 2003 versions.
I used to save files like this in "read only recommended" mode.

The reason you aren't finding anything is that word wrap is automatic
in Word unless you turn it off, or possibly if something is broken.

I am trying to set up Auto save in Excel 2003 Pro. I found auto recovery but
that is not what I am looking for. I think it may be an add-in.

If you're running xl2002+, then if you can find a copy of the autosave addin

Anyone know of a formula that will extract the last word from a cell.
For example if cell contains the text: Best available title
How could I produce the result: "title"
(And preferably be able to fill the formula down the column to get the
last word from other cells in the column as well.)
Thanks for any suggestions.
