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.

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 have Publisher 2000. When I click on the icon on the desktop, the program
opens to the catalog page. When I click on 'existing files'. the program
closes down. I can open the existing file in Windows Explorer, but as soon as
I click on something, it closes down.
This is a relatively new computer running Windows XP Media Center. I have
been able to access my existing file before on this system.
Can someone please help?
Can you open Publisher in Safe Mode? Do you have a default printer enabled?
Insert your 2000 disk, select repair.

We have a word add in that programatically inserts an auto text table then
adds rows to it. This works ok in Word 2002 but occasionally crashes in Word
2007 - this is not a consistent crash when we carry out the same operation it
happens in no specific sequence. The only place we are able to track it down
to is the auto text table inserting rows. Word itself is crashing.

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.

Anyone know of a formula that will extract the last word from a cell.
For example if cell contains the text: Best available title

I created a Textbox in MS-Word 2007 by going
to the Developer option->then chose Design Mode,
then Legacy Tools->Text box Field. The MultiLine
and Enterkey properties are True and the rest
are default values.
Is there a way I can limit the number of
words to a certain number? I realize there is a way to limit the
of characters in the Textbox by the Maxlength value. Also, is it
possible that a message
appears when the user exceeds the maximum length informing
him about that. Do I need to use VBA code or do the inbuilt
features of word allow me to do that?
