Window location at program start
Running Windows XP Media Center Edition.
Using two 19' monitors.
One particular program starts at the right side of monitor 1, with the other
half on monitor 2.
If I select maximize on the properties window, it starts using only monitor
1, but full screen of course.
Is there a switch I can add to the start command to get it to run, in normal
window, on monitor 1?
Its usually on option of your dual monitor software

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?

I upgraded from office 2000 to 2003. My wife was sending e-mail
messages to her sisters phone in Japan before the upgrade and she
could read them. Sending e-mail with Outlook 2003 she can't read them.
I set Outlook 2003 to use Plain Text/Japanese (Shift-JIS) after Auto
Select didn't work, and she still can,t read the messages.
Is there a fix for this?
Do you know what is wrong with the messages? Are they not using Japanese
fonts, have garbled text, ASCII characters etc?

...Value of non-numeric characters in a formula
As pretty much an Excel newbie, why does Excel (97 and 2002) treat a
non-numeric character as having a value of 1 in a =PRODUCT formula? It
treats the same character as a 0 in a =SUM formula.
Make C1 =PRODUCT(A1,B1). Then, e.g put 5 in A1 and 3 in B1. C1 shows 15.
Fine. Now try putting 0 in B1. C1 is now 0. Fine again. Now try putting
an e or a comma in B1. C1 shows 5! Why?
Try the same thing with C1 = SUM(A1,B1). The result will be 8, 5, and 5.
TIA for the explanation. I'm sure it's there somewhere in the Help info,
but I can't see it.

I'm using Excel 2003 if it matters ... I'm wondering if there is a
known bug/issue on this. For what ever reason, when I try to save a
new file (or for that matter open something done previously) with a
name that has more than 45 characters or so (might be off by a
couple), I get message that it can't save and then gives me a bunch of
reasons (file path might not exist, might have too many characters,
folder might be read only, etc).
I know file exists in the folder I'm checking - I can email myself the
file and open from the email so its definitely there!
Any sane insight?
