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.

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...problem with BOLD. ITALIC...using Word as editor

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.

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
2007 - this is not a consistent crash when we carry out the same operation it

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

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.

While there is a function that I can call to make sure that the XML document

Do I have to understand the DTD/XSD and code my module so that the XML

Depending on how you opened the file and the version of excel, not every file

Recently Used file list).

won't appear. (xl2002 (I think) changed this behavior.)
