Windows XP: Open file in read-only: Word, Excel, Visio
I'm often sharing files on a network drive with someone. Often, one
of us knows that we don't need to open a file for modification, and we
only need read-access. Is there a way to open a file in read-only
mode so that when someone does need to open it for modification, the
read-only user is not blocking that?
If there is not a way to do this native to Windows XP, is there a way
to do it from the three applications that we use most, namely Word,
Excel, Visio? All are 2003 versions.
I used to save files like this in "read only recommended" mode.

Are you sending the message as text only? If so all formatting will
disappear. If you want to retain your formatting you'll need to send your
messages as HTML. You can check this in your Outlook options.

I have Publisher 2000. When I click on the icon on the desktop, the program
opens to the catalog page. When I click on 'existing files'. the program
closes down. I can open the existing file in Windows Explorer, but as soon as
I click on something, it closes down.
This is a relatively new computer running Windows XP Media Center. I have
been able to access my existing file before on this system.
Can someone please help?
Can you open Publisher in Safe Mode? Do you have a default printer enabled?

The reason you aren't finding anything is that word wrap is automatic
