Windows XP: Open file in read-only: Word, Excel, Visio
I'm often sharing files on a network drive with someone. Often, one
of us knows that we don't need to open a file for modification, and we
only need read-access. Is there a way to open a file in read-only
mode so that when someone does need to open it for modification, the
read-only user is not blocking that?
If there is not a way to do this native to Windows XP, is there a way
to do it from the three applications that we use most, namely Word,
Excel, Visio? All are 2003 versions.
I used to save files like this in "read only recommended" mode.

Sigh... what version of Outlook are you using and do you have Word being
used as the editor? Have you looked at the autocorrect options if you are
using Word? What troubleshooting have you already tried so we don't repeat
things that did not work?

Are you sending the message as text only? If so all formatting will
disappear. If you want to retain your formatting you'll need to send your
messages as HTML. You can check this in your Outlook options.

I doubt it is an Outlook problem. Either you entered the address into your
address book incorrectly or you were given the wrong address to begin with.
Outlook sends to whatever server responds to the address's domain. From
there, it's out of Outlook's hands.

Outlook 2002, SP3. I've noticed when I exit the program, as it is closing,
it puts up a rectangular message box (after the main window has closed),
then closes it immediately. It takes just a fraction of a second, just long
enough for me to see there's something there, but not long enough to see
what! If you have any idea what this could be, or how I could slow it down
so I could see it, let me know. The program seems to operate correctly in
every other respect, I just don't know what that blazing fast message box is
trying to say.

The reason you aren't finding anything is that word wrap is automatic
in Word unless you turn it off, or possibly if something is broken.

Maybe you have some objects that get rearranged when you hide the columns using
your grouping symbols.

If it's in a PST file you can just shutdown Outlook
