Reading .wks file
Greetings...according to the Excel "help" file, as well as the file extension listing, I *should* be able to read an *.wks file, but Excel insists that it cannot. I am pretty sure the file was created in Microsoft Works. Is there a converter somewhere that I can download/install? Cheers - S2
Excel can read Works 2.0, not later. You have to save them in Works as excel
files or Works 2.0 or get a commercial

I am trying to import data from an Access database to an Excel
spreadsheet. I have imported several queries from Access into Excel
already. However the last piece of data that I am wanting to import
into Excel has VB code in the query doing a calculation automatically.
So when I go to Excel to import that piece of data, those queries that
contain the VB code don't even show up as import-able. Is there a way
to import these queries from access into my excel worksheet? I am
using Access 2003 and running on an XP OS. Is it possible to do it in
Excel 2007 if not available in Excel 2003?

...Suppressing DTD look-up via web access when loading XmlDocument
In one of our test suites we load an xml document (it's actually .svg).
I'm trying to find some way of stopping the eventual call to
HttpWebRequest.GetResponse which I presume it's doing when going to get
the DTD at "http://www.w3.org/TR/2001/REC-SVG-20010904/DTD/svg10.dtd".
The result is a time-out because this machine is isolated from the
database, the web, everything really :-)
I tried to pass XmlDocument a non-validating reader e.g. XmlTextReader
but the web request was still attempted. I also set its XmlResolver to
null but to no avail.

they become read-write users).

...Can't Convert Access 97 MDE File
I have an application that we have been unable to get to
work on Access 2000. I have created an MDE file and used
office developer tools to create a run time file for a
machine with Access 2000 on it.
I get the "You can't convert or enable an MDE file" when I
go to run it.
I know there is something you can change in the Office
Developers Setup Wizard to get this to work, but I forgot
what it was. Does anyone know.
Thank You in Advance
No, you can't convert an MDE.
You have to use Access 97 with the 97 MDE,

You can always save the data in .csv form and read it in after parsing.
