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.

I have created an Access 2000 application that I now wish to distribute to
users as an MDE file. The Access 2000 Package and Deployment Wizard does a
fine job of storing the relevant installation files on a CD, exploiting A2K
However, I would prefer to let users download my application from a website.
The Package and Deployment Wizard offers a 'Web Publishing' deployment option
that appears to address this need. My only problem is that it doesn't work
for me. I get the following error message,

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.

If you are using Outlook 2000 and are trying to archive to a file created
with the the Outlook 2003 unicode file format, it will not work. You need
to save your archived mail to a 97-2002 compliant ansi format archive.

We have a word add in that programatically inserts an auto text table then

2007 - this is not a consistent crash when we carry out the same operation it
happens in no specific sequence. The only place we are able to track it down

When you are ready to print, in the print dialog, you will be able to change the page

the top margin to .5, change the gaps to zero.

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

While there is a function that I can call to make sure that the XML document

Do I have to understand the DTD/XSD and code my module so that the XML
document is valid? Or, are there tools available to do this? What if the data
is in SQL Server but I have to create an XML rendition of the data that

Depending on how you opened the file and the version of excel, not every file

won't appear. (xl2002 (I think) changed this behavior.)
