Compatibility Issues with WIndows ME

I am trying to open an excell documet that was created in Excel 98 for
Mac on a machine running Windows ME over our network. If I copy the
file from the Mac to the PC over the network, it opens fine, but since
multiple people use this file, I need to be able to open it remotely
(I don't want people to overwrite eachother's changes).

Although we can open this file from a Mac if we leave it on a PC
without any problems, we need to do the reverse (keep the file on a
Mac and open it from a PC). Unfortunately we get an error message
every time we open it on a PC. The error message lists the directory
path and says the file cannot be found (although we can see it right
there in the file browser, and we can copy it to the desktop of the PC
if we want to).

We've tried this on two different PCs with the same results. Both PCs
are running PC MACLAN (an AppleTalk converter). Our Macs are running
OS 9.2.

I'd use something other than ME.  That was the shittiest Windows that
Microsoft ever made.

Try adding ".xls" to the end of Excel file-names and ".doc" to the end of
Word file-names when making them in Excel 98 and Word 98 (or afterwards).
Does that help? It may just be that Windows can't see the Mac-format file
system.

Formatting/Page Break/Printing Issue
I set up a new excel file to match a 33 page hard copy document, and spaced the rows so that my document put the right text on the right pages. The text in each row spans past the columns that are set to print, however the print preview still looks correct (not cutting off any words, even though in a page break preview, the ends of each line fall in the grey area). When I copy this sheet into an existing excel file, the pages all change, and the text is cut off on the right side of the page. Any ideas? Thanks ...

Double-check the settings under the ### key as well. Hi, Yes I updated the Hooks count to 1, then under...

Long Delay copying xls files in Windows Explorer
I have created several Excel files ranging between 2Mb & 4Mb i filesize. Why does Windows Explorer treat xls files differently from every othe file type, in that when I single click on one of those xls files, o right click on one of them, it seems to take forever (up to over minute) before I can do anything else. For instance, I want to make a backup copy of one of my xls files, so go to the folder using Windows Explorer, then I right click on an xl file, I then have to wait for up to a minute or so, before the dro down list appears, then I can choose "Copy", and the drop down ...

Anyone know if CRM Client for Outlook works with Windows 7 Beta?

Windows 2008 and 2003 TS

We can only afford to purchase one more box, and would like to keep the current 2003 Server as a TS only. We would purchase a 2008 STD Server to be the new DC. We have some questions: 1. Can a Windows 2008 Std Server as a DC exist with a 2003 Terminal Server in the same domain? 2. The 2003 TS would also be the licensing Server..is that a problem? 3. Due to partition size issues on the current server, we will be reformatting...
