#### Can't open 'my money.mny' in Money 2005

I bought a new PC last week, reinstalled Money 2005, and now I cannot access
my carefully backed up money file transferred from the old PC and which
contains several years worth of accounts.  I'd be grateful for any help!

Phil

The message I get is:

"Money cannot locate 'my.money.mny' or cannot open it, possibly because it
was a read-only file, or you do not have permission to change it, or your
disk drive is write-protected.

If you have chosen the correct file and it cannot be accessed, you will need
to click OK and open your most recent backup file.

If the file is being used by another application, close it in the other
application and click OK to try again."

Void All Open Orders in a Batch
Hello, Is there a quick way to void a Batch full of Open Orders? We had an EDI data error, which generated over two hundred 'ghost' copies of one hundred legit Sales Orders. I've moved the good Orders to a new batch, and do not want to sit here and manually Void the 'ghosts'. Thanks There is no way to void a whole batch. One workaround, if you are confident that all orders in this batch are 'ghosts', is to allow deletion of orders (in Sales Order Processing Setup), delete the entire batch, then disallow the deletion again.

Opening Mulitiple Tabs In Pivot & Setting Print Area
Hi-All, Newbie here---- Is there a way to open multiple tabs of information in a pivot table at the same time, do a select all, and then select a print area or am I going about this the wrong way.

MsMpEng.exe slowing down the opening of folders
Hi, I recently reinstalled the OS on my 2005 Compaq from their disk set for making the laptop look like it just came out of the box. I had previously downloaded the install package for microsoft security essentials, and before going online, I used the Norton removal package to remove all traces of that, then installed MSE, then went online. The system has generally worked well since then. Occasionally, a folder is very slow to display its contents after a reboot.
