Importing into Excel from a Text file
We have a text database of about 7,000 rings. It is in a fixed format.
Unfortunately some where we have about 4 or five rings whose format is
screwed up. We figured by importing to Excel, we should be able to find
where the records are to fix them. But, we just can't get the following
format to import into excel. If anyone can help us, we sure would appreciate
Each record begins with Begin Product
Each record endswith EndProduct
a semicolin seperates each record
Also there are para symbols at the end of every line

When I create a hyperlink to an existing excel file and then click on it,
explorer opens to the folder that the file is in instead of the excel file
opening. Just to test I pointed it to a word document and the doc file
opened fine. How do I get a hyperlink to open the excel file? Thanks.
Are you sure it isn't to the folder instead. Only way I can reproduce that
is if I select the folder instead of the file when I create the hyperlink.
As expected if I use a hyperlink to a particular file it will open..

I have two similarly structured XLS file. One file "A" is much
longer...perhaps 2000 rows long...when saved as a htm file it is around
500KB. I take another XLS spreadsheet that looks like the same
structure...rows and colums...only about 560 rows...when I save this as
webpage .htm it ends up being 11.2MB. What the heck happened? How do I get
it down in size. There is no apparent reason why a smaller file ends up
being 11 time larger that the smaller file when saved!

Push the Insert Key on your keyboard.

I was wondering if someone could tell me how to read a single line from a
text file. I tried using getline, but my MFC program does not recognize the
getline function. Nor does it recognize <string> or <string.h> or using
namespace std. So is there another function that I can use in MFC?
Take a look at the CStdioFile MFC class.

Using Windows XP and Office 2007
Is there a reason that Publisher files keep growing in size? We have a
weekly bulletin with some static information and some information that
changes from week to week.
On Monday, we open last week's publication, delete the no-longer-relavent
text boxes and pictures, and add new text boxes and pictures for the current
week. That has been our standard practice. I just noticed that the file
size is increasing exponentially which leads me to believe that even though
I delete things, there is still some sort of "ghost" material left in the...SP3 Problem
Ever since I installed SP3 for Office XP, I have been
getting the following error - "A program is trying to
access email addresses you have stored in Outlook. Do you
want to allow this?"
I get this error only when I use Word as my email editor.
Hence what is happening is that Outlook thinks that Word
is a rogue program trying to send unauthorized emails.
My question is, is there a way to prevent this - a
whitelist of programs for example?
Disable the PDFMaker addin. (See
http://www.slipstick.com/outlook/ol2002sp3.htm#problems for details on how
to do this.)

What permissions setting is used to prevent users from moving or deleting an
Excel file on a network?
This is more of an network operating system setting question.
I would think putting the file on a share that the users only had readonly
access would be enough.
But this would mean that the users could still copy (not move) the file.
And they wouldn't be able to update the workbook.
