automatic time formatting
In attempting to run mail merge with word, if the time format has the am / pm
in it, the contents of the cell are entered as a decimal. But if one can
enter the time as (9:15) the contents in the mail merge appear as they were
entered. trouble is that any time I enter a number such as above, it
automatically formats to (hh:hh:ss am/pm) how do i turn off the automatic
format! I have attempted to change the format to the custom (hh:mm)once the
extended time is in the cell, but though it is selected and entered, the
contents of the cell do not change. I have used excell mail ...Problems opening a database

...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

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

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?

You can't. It is not the file, but the media, that is read only. Even CD-RW
media does not allow editing a file on the CD. Copy te file from CD to HD,
mak edits and if a CD-RW you should be able to burn the edited file back to

I am trying to insert a database” from Access 03 into Word 03 using the

for this? Right now, it’s only showing about half my queries which is a

But in my Junk e-mail folder the messages don't get marked as read when I

even though I have "Show reading pane" checked in "Layout" a reading pane
doesn't display in the Junk email right pane.
Is this normal?

Read that message again. Hit Ctrl+C while it is open, then Paste into
Notepad so you have it for future reference. It says much more than
close and reopen.
