If somebody is sending you a Publisher file, and you do not have MS
Publisher, you have a choice.. you can buy Publisher or ask for the sender
to convert the file to .pdf format which can then be read with Adobe Acrobat
Reader.. do a Google search if you do not already have Adobe Reader.. it is
a free download..

Within my main form, I have command buttons that run query searches that open
a new window based on the search information I input. It always opens in a
new window, and also leaves the main form open. Is it possible to have the

Not really. A Sekect query opens as a datasheet form.
You could create a subform on your main form and make the record source of
the sub form the query you are running.

I can't get my file from money '99 to open in Money '04.
I get the message: "Money can not locate c:\( . . . )\my

is read only, or you have no permission to change it, or
drive is write protected."
Its not read only. I've reloaded '99 and open it. Any
ideas out there?

I'm at a loss with this one. There are 4 computers at my location. All of

All the latest updates and service packs (except XP SP2) have been applied
to all of the installations. All of the installations use internet only

hotmail account setup.
The problem is that on two of the computers, when ever a hotmail folder is

Excel 2002 SP3
Win XP HE
If I click on an xls file in Windows Explorer, it properly starts Excel
and opens the file.
However, if I need another file opened, and click on another xls file
within Windows Explorer, instead of opening the file only, it starts up
a new instance of Excel.
So I can find myself with 3 or 4 (or more) instances of Excel running
simultaneously. It's not a huge problem but I believe not necessary and
would like to see if I can find a way of only opening the file in
question once Excel is already opened, etc.

Hi, <br><br>I have a spreadsheet created with Windows Excel 2003. When it is opened with Mac 2008, some of the links in the spreadsheet become broken. Not all of the links, only a few. The spreadsheet has multiple pages, and the page name is stripped out of the links by Mac 2008. This makes this not clickable. Any Ideas? Does the service pack 1 fix this problem? <br><br>Thanks.
