problem with BOLD. ITALIC...using Word as editor
I compose a msg using Outlook. Word is the editor. I set a word in bold
ot italic. I send msg to myselg, reading in Outlook. The bold or italic
is gone. What to do?
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'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.

We have a word add in that programatically inserts an auto text table then
adds rows to it. This works ok in Word 2002 but occasionally crashes in Word
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
to is the auto text table inserting rows. Word itself is crashing.

Does anyone know of any key differences/issues between Word 2002 and Word
2007 that could cause such an error.

When I used to use Outlook Express, I could right click on links (to PDFs,
pix, etc) in message bodies and select the option "Save target as...". This
option doesn't appear to be available for links in emails in Outlook 2003,
and I'd be grateful for advice on whether this is a feature of Outlook, or a
setting I need to change in the options somewhere.
It is a setting in the OS and not Outlook.

I am trying to set up Auto save in Excel 2003 Pro. I found auto recovery but

If you're running xl2002+, then if you can find a copy of the autosave addin

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

Anyone know of a formula that will extract the last word from a cell.
For example if cell contains the text: Best available title
How could I produce the result: "title"

last word from other cells in the column as well.)

then Legacy Tools->Text box Field. The MultiLine

are default values.
Is there a way I can limit the number of
words to a certain number? I realize there is a way to limit the
of characters in the Textbox by the Maxlength value. Also, is it
possible that a message
appears when the user exceeds the maximum length informing
him about that. Do I need to use VBA code or do the inbuilt
features of word allow me to do that?
