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

I am trying to import data from an Access database to an Excel
spreadsheet. I have imported several queries from Access into Excel
already. However the last piece of data that I am wanting to import
into Excel has VB code in the query doing a calculation automatically.
So when I go to Excel to import that piece of data, those queries that
contain the VB code don't even show up as import-able. Is there a way
to import these queries from access into my excel worksheet? I am
using Access 2003 and running on an XP OS. Is it possible to do it in
Excel 2007 if not available in Excel 2003?

I want to allow the group Everyone to have read-only access to a calendar in

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

You most likely have to reset your file association from 2007 to 2003.
Close Excel first and On the Windows Taskbar
1) Start>Run "excel.exe /unregserver"(no quotes)>OK.
2) Start>Run "excel.exe /regserver"(no quotes)>OK.
See the space between exe and /regserver

Is there a way to trigger a macro whenever data changes in a cell? The

Yes. Put it in the sheet module, instead of a regular module. It should
look like this:
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
If Not Intersect(Target, Range("A1")) Is Nothing Then
MsgBox "You changed cell A1, you did."
If Not Intersect(Target, Range("A1").EntireColumn) Is Nothing Then

You can always save the data in .csv form and read it in after parsing.
Another more elegant approach would be to use automation and use

Use your worksheet to pull the relevant data together into a series. Do the
data manipulation in your worksheet, then the chart plots the series which
you have generated in the worksheet.
