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

Our resource booking is done using Exchange. This is fine for our
Windows users, however our Linux users cannot book events. I have
figured out how to use OWA to let them view the calendars on the web,
however how can they book an event without Outlook? Is there a
specially formatted message they can send to the resource account
setup to auto accept?
...Use custom task form in Outlook 2003 when creating task in ON 2007
I have a custom task form in Outlook 2003 that I use for all of my
task-related info. I rely heavily on this form, and would like to have it be
the form that isused when ON creates a task (using any of the Outlook Task
tags). Is it possible to do this?
You might get better help if you posted this in the Outlook Forum since this
is an Access Forum.
Happy New Year!

I am currently using Outlook 2002. Some days it works
fine, but other days the minute I click anything it
freezes up. I could open an email, or respond to an
email, or try to create an email then it will freeze up.
I cannot minimize or close out the program without
hitting control alt delete. Can anyone help me with
this? If possible please send responses to my email
...Two cases of same Folder group in Outlook 2003
In my folders area I have two listings of "personal folders" and all

Even a cursory glance at the posts in this group will answer your question.
Importing a PST file always corrupts your Outlook profile. It is never the
correct way to transfer Outlook data.
Your profile cannot be repaired. Create a new one from scratch and migrate

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

A word 2003 document where I want to select a 'block' of text in order to
copy it in somewhere else.
How do I mark such a 'block' ?
I assume you know how to select text in general, so there are two possible
interpretations of "block":
1. If you mean a large portion of text that requires scrolling the screen,
click at one end of the desired selection, use the scroll bar to bring the
other end in view, and Shift+click there.
2. If you mean a vertical column portion of a wider block of text, use

After an SP upgrade of my Office 2000 the priviewed mail
doesnt get marked as read anymore. I have tried to change
the time (Tools->Options->Priview pane) from 2 -> 3 -> 4
seconds but nothing works. The only way to mark a mail as
read is either to open it or right click it and chose
Mark as read. Since I only use the priview pane this is
very anoying for me.
Is this a bug or has some setting changed with the SP?
...Archiving mail items with a modified date of "none"
Outlook 2003 BTW,
I am trying to use the archive function to combine a couple PST files
(archiving from one file to another). I set the archive date to a future
date to force all items to be moved. unfortunately some items have a
modified date of "none". These are left alone by the archive process.
Is there a better way to merge pst files or os there a way to include those
items in the scope of the archive?

I just upgraded from Outlook 2000 and was disappointed to find that, unlike 2000, this new version doesn't seem to notify me when I receive mail if the program is not running (after it has been opened previously). 2000 did this- any way to fix it?
Next, like 2000, this new version doesn't seem to be able to display the standard inbox and calender views next to each other unless you use the cheesy Outlook Today view. It doesn't seem to be too much to ask- any way to do it? Thanks!

But I am lead to believe the mail does not "vanish", it just enters a Bad
