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

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
a certain mailbox. I can do this by granting the permission 'Full mailbox
access' (under 'Mailbox rights', under 'Exchange Advanced', for the
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
group Everyone. This does not allow other people to open items in the
mailbox, but as I understand it, permits Exchange Server and Outlook to do

I have a pivot table with dates grouped by month.
In XL2002, if I want to ungroup them, I can use the PivotTable toolbar. I

How do you ungroup a pivot table in XL2000?
Please reply to newsgroup, not e-mail
You can right-click on the field button in the pivot table, and choose

OR, select the cell that contains the field button

Can anyone recommend an Anti-spam software that works with queues in CRM 3.0?
I would prefer an anti-spam software installed on our Exchange 2003 server.
However, I need the anti-spam software to process the e-mails before the
CRM-Exchange E-mail Router routes the messages to CRM.
I am looking at GFi MailEssentials, but I am unsure if this software will
work when installed on the Exchange Server.
Any comments on how to avoid spam in queues would be helpful! Thank you.

I have Excel 2003 running alongside 2007.

You most likely have to reset your file association from 2007 to 2003.

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

When viewing e-mail messages in CRM, a line appears saying "Unblock" to allow
