cannot open a file
1...when i try to open file i get message,cannot open" need to know which
programme created it" I go to the web as directed where I find Publisher (iam
sure that was the programme used) what should i do next?
2.... if I do not know which programme created a file, how do I find out
which one did?
Look at the extension of the file. If it says .pub then it was created by Publisher.
If you don't have extensions turned on, right click the file, properties, it should
show the extension.
If you always want to see file extensions, in Windows Explorer, folder options, view

Outlook 2k3 opens fine and retrieves messages sort of
fine. For my IMAP account it has started only downloading
headers not messages, but selecting and requesting
download gets around that. The major problem is that it
freezes when I open a message in the inbox, any message.
This just started today. I've tried a number of fixes that
haven't worked. Hopefully someone out there has a

Unless you are using an Exchange server, there is no message recall. With
Exchange server, your chances are better. However, the best way to retrieve
a message is to not send it until you have reread it and decide that this
should be sent.
Milly Staples [MVP - Outlook...MDI within MDI?...
I have an MDI app where I want each child window to in turn host another MDI
parent, allowing a managed frame of children for each top-level MDI child.
The purpose is a "workspace" driven UI where the top-level children are

further framed windows within it.
I am not an MFC expert on MDI/SDI, nor on the underlying API requirements. I

...opening password protected ppt97-2004 file in ppt 2008 for Mac
Operating System: Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard)
Hello. I am trying to open a password protected ppt file (Powerpoint 97-2004) in Powerpoint 2008 for Mac. I created the presentation on Powerpoint for Windows, and I know the password. The problem is that Powerpoint for Mac 2008 does not give me the option of entering the password. (Unlike Word for Mac; I've had no problem with password-protected files there.)
The message I receive is "This presentation is protected by a password or Digital Rights Management (DRM). To access the presentation, you must have a ve...How to set MDI view as background view?
I am developing a MDI application and have the requirement to allow
for the definition of a single background view. By using a bulletin

background view would be the bulletin board and all other views would
be the flyers in the foreground. I have no problems implementing this
by changing the z-order of the desired background view by calling the
frame window's SetWindowPos() method, provided that no view is
maximized. However, I need to implement this capability regardless of
the window state; normal, maximized, minimize...macro code to open most recent file.
I am currently using the following code. I am trying to find some
additional code that will go to a designated folder and open the most recent
excel file and run the remaining syntax. So this new code would go to the
macros folder and find the most recent quote sheet1.xls and open it and run
the remainder of the macro it would do the same for the remaining quote
sheet files. If I had to save the quote sheet test1, test2, test3 into
separate folders I can do that as well.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
