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 have gone from Windows 2000 running Outlook 2000 to Windows XP Pro running
Outlook 2003. When I try opening my saved .pst file in the new Outlook I get a message
saying "File access denied. You do not have permission required to access to file
mailbox.pst" I am logged on as Administrator, as I was on the old install. How do I open
my saved mailbox.pst or archive.pst? TIA
How did you try opening it? is this a local .pst file? If it is not on
your C: drive, is it marked Read-Only?

Thanks in Advance
The pst file is stored in the profile path of the MSOUTLOK
Since the path of the pst can be varied by the user, as can its name, ie it
neednt be in the install default path, your app would first have to search
for the pst, then you would have to figure out if it/which was the current

I want to allow the group Everyone to have read-only access to a calendar in

particular user). However this also allows people to to do everything (ie:
they become read-write users).
I notice that every mailbox in the system has 'Read permissions' granted to

I have Excel 2003 running alongside 2007.
Double clicking an excel file causes it to open in 2007; how do I force 2003
to open the files instead?
You most likely have to reset your file association from 2007 to 2003.
Close Excel first and On the Windows Taskbar
1) Start>Run "excel.exe /unregserver"(no quotes)>OK.
2) Start>Run "excel.exe /regserver"(no quotes)>OK.
See the space between exe and /regserver
You might have to designate a full path to excel.exe for Office 2003
In that case Start>Run "C:\your path to\office11\excel.exe" ...Read mail arn't marked as read anymore
After an SP upgrade of my Office 2000 the priviewed mail

seconds but nothing works. The only way to mark a mail as
read is either to open it or right click it and chose

Is this a bug or has some setting changed with the SP?

I will attach the file to see if someone can figure this out for me.
