xls file format is not valid
Have an XP PC trying to open an Excel 97 file that is
stored on a Windows 2000 server named survey.xls and
getting an error that the .xls:file format is not valid.
We are using the same program that created it. How do we
open it. Thanks for your help!!!!
Try to copy your file and rename it making sure that the extension is .xls An extra period or space could make all the difference. Otherwise, you file could have been corrupted. Not a happy thought
Let me know if this helped you
I'd try to open a copy of the file from a local harddisk, too.

When you double click on a Word attachment and chosse to open it, you
get a 'Serious error' report with the option to restart Word. Sometimes
this works other times it just loops through the same.

Hello, I'm sure this is exceedingly easy, but somehow,
I'm screwing this up. I ultimately need to have a self-
updating PowerPoint file (client mandates a ppt file).
According to ppt's help, that means I have to use linked
Excel graphs, not embedded ppt graphs. However, my
programmer will be supplying me with tons of csv files.
When I try to create an excel file with a data link to a
csv file, it tells me that it can't update it unless I
open the source file. I *can't* take the time to open
each csv - there will be hundreds. What am I missing

...Import Palm files
Can anyone help me by telling me how to import palm files
(dat files) into outlook. I want to import contact,
Depends what you can export to from Palm Desktop. Personally, I've found
this messy. Why not just get sync software that can sync your Palm with
Outlook directly? Chapura Pocketmirror or Pumatech Intellisync are two
ideas....or your Palm CD may have come with this option.

Someone in my area has called me and asked for help. He had a hard drive
crash so he put in a new drive and reinstalled Media Center Edition. He
accesses the internet through DSL and a router. Another computer is also
plugged into the router and is working fine. On this computer, he has no
internet access. Under the "status" tab it says "connected" but under the
support tab the IP address, subnet mask, and gateway lines are all empty.
If he unplugs the ethernet cable, nothing changes. It still says it is
connected. Also, the icon in the tray that should appear...Installing office 2000 disk 2 with publisher on upgraded windows x

Last week she reported that every time she tried to attach a file to an

through with starting the debugger, she gets a variety of errors...
never a repeating error.

DID ANYONE ELSE NOTICE THIS?
Whenever I save an attachment, and go to the drop down

recent documents folder for Windows XP has been cleared.
This shows too much! Others using Outlook Express on the
same computer can potentially view the file names of
every document, image, and device recently accessed.
Where is the folder to clear this data out of?
