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 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

When viewing e-mail messages in CRM, a line appears saying "Unblock" to allow
the full message content to be read. Can this be made a configurable server
or security setting? We are trying to reduce "clicks" as much as possible.

I wonder if someone more experience with MFC than me could help me out
with a design issue.
We're creating a UI app for a controller running WinCE w/ MFC. It's
mainly a dialog app. When the app loads there is a main screen that
shows current status and has a few buttons to get to different areas
(which area dialogs) of the program.
We've had some internal discussion as to whether to make this main
screen another dialog, or a frame. What are the advantages of either
one? Should the main screen be a frame? Or should it be a dialog like
the other screens, except that it never g...The memory could not be "read".

You can't. It is not the file, but the media, that is read only. Even CD-RW

I have "Mark message read after displayed for" '0' seconds checked.
But in my Junk e-mail folder the messages don't get marked as read when I

reading pane for the Junk e-mail folder
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?

I have Vista Home Premium SPlatest. I recently purchased a Logitech MK250

I suppose the keyboard would have to be a receiver in addition to being a

would have to know)
I did not notice any CD with the keyboard.
I understand SetPoint is meant to show a Systray status, but I also read some

I've seen and religiously use the oft suggested technique to stop screen

I have one workbook, however, that merely switching between workbooks will

far as to include all three:
