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

When copying worksheets in excel it is possible to duplicate range name
causing local (worksheet specific) range names. Sometimes Excel warn
you when this is going to happen, sometimes the warning does no
appear. Could anyone tell me the rules as to wether the warning i
given or no

I think you get the warning when there are formulae on the sheet you are copying referring to range names that could refer to either the new or the old workbook.

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?
I have a problem with outlook. When they send a message to me that demands

confirmation does not come received from the sender. Someone knows from what

Nothing built into excel that I know.
But if you're just looking (not printing), then change the window's zoom to 39%
(or smaller) and you'll see the names of the ranges.

In projecting cash flows over time, I want to name the summary rows
(revenue, expenses, capital expenditures, etc.) so that I can easily get
each row's value for a specific period, for further processing.
I have seen the method where columns and rows are named, and the
intersection of a column and row is named using their combination, separated
by a space (as the intersection operator).
Can anyone recommend methods which have worked for them?
Thanks for any help.
