problem with BOLD. ITALIC...using Word as editor
I compose a msg using Outlook. Word is the editor. I set a word in bold
ot italic. I send msg to myselg, reading in Outlook. The bold or italic
is gone. What to do?
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.

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.

Any ideas on how to get 01/05/2003 in the text field?
Many thanks in advance.

We have a word add in that programatically inserts an auto text table then
adds rows to it. This works ok in Word 2002 but occasionally crashes in Word

to is the auto text table inserting rows. Word itself is crashing.

I'm having a problem with Excel. Some cell text is not being displayed.
However, the text does display in the formula box if you select one of the
"bad" cells. The
files that do this are on a network share and work fine on my other
computer. I've uninstalled and re-installed Office and the problem won't
go away. I also tried copying the files over to the computer in question and
that didn't help, either. If anybody has any ideas, I'd love to hear them.

Is there a way I can limit the number of

of characters in the Textbox by the Maxlength value. Also, is it
possible that a message

him about that. Do I need to use VBA code or do the inbuilt
