Will there be any updates (more features) with the IE8 Developer tool coming
soon? Firebug just released their updates and some of their newer features
are very handy (i.e. the new Quick Info) using FireFox.

I haven't been active here in a while, and may be busy for a few more days, but I'm doing
something useful in a different direction for a while. I'm off proving the infamous "CBS

rest of the newsgroup.

...Excel spreadsheet opening in IE8 instead of Excel 2003
I have an excel spreadsheet on the network but opened through
Sharepoint Small Business Server 2003.
All the PCs on the network correctly open the XLS file in Excel 2003
except for this one particular PC that insists on opening it in IE8.
This has happened before but after a few days solved itself - so we
never got to the bottom of it. I have confirmed that XLS files are
associated with Excel but it is still happening
Anybody any thoughts.
I've never used any version of SharePoint, but this is what I'd try.

I have ATT DSL and have been using IE8 since it was available. Recently I
had to uninstall/reinstall it and SP3 for a problem and when I reinstalled

noticed that it is still provided by Yahoo. I think it is a little less
stable, or slower maybe, but I don't want to remove it and install IE8 just
on a whim. It was not fun. Does anyone know what the diffierence in their
operations are, and what difference it will make? Thanks.

Excel 2002 search function does not find values N.00, that is values ending
in the number .0 or .00, that is "decimal 0" or "decimal 00". This is a
problem since I am keeping track of my expenses using Excel.
Why is that?
Is there a fix?
My version of Excel is 2002, SP3.
Excel is looking through the values. And if your cell contains 123 (formatted
to show 123.00), the value is really 123.
If you search for just the significant digits (like 123 or 123.1) does it work
ok for you?

My company is using an Access based program. We use an Auto Correct file

After a hardware upgrade (to an Athlon II x2 Regcor 245 chip and new

set to "protect critical programs," if I recall the wording correctly, not
to protect all programs. Although the latter setting is supposedly the
default, the "critical programs" setting showed the radio button when I
looked at the DEP settings the first time.
