How do I disable the creation of the backup copy?

Don't confuse backup with Excel's requirement to maintain
two copies of a file while working on it. If this involves
diskettes you should be aware that you should never access
removeable media directly from Excel or risk loss.
You might wish you didn't stop creating a backup copy (.XLK) for your file, but

This is the second time this has happened to me. :( I had to restore
ms money 2005 from a backup after moving the program to another
computer or reinstalling the program after wiping a computer.
I very carefully backed up the data first. It's all there, all except
the reconciliation data! It looks like I've never reconciled my bank
What am I doing wrong? It's bad enough I can't seem to figure out how
to print a reconciliation report showing uncleared transactions, etc.,
after performing a reconciliation.
Thanks for any suggestions.

Hello - I have a portrait folded card (tent card) that I am using to make
place settings. The name of the person is in a text box at the bottom of the
page as normal, then at the top the text box is rotated so that the name is
upside down -this way when the card is folded in half the name is rightside
up on both sides.
The text in the box that is upside down is being barely cut off when I
print, just as if the top third is being shaved away straight across. Is this
a publisher issue because the text is flipped or could it be my printer?
It is the limitation of your printer...Problem Copying Charts to PowerPoint

I would go to the Microsoft FAQ's but no apps will actually start on the PC

Do a search for *.mny, and that should find all your money files and then
you can select the ones you want.
