Can i use Windows Search to find a number within Excel?
If i use Widnows search of the CONTENTS of files (not file names), i find in
Excel, that for cells that contain text, they can be found. But, it does
not appear to me that numbers can be found. Of course the number as Excel
stores it may differ from how it is displayed. But, does anybody know if
this is possible?
For instance, i have a cell with the number 3,709,227 in it, as it appears
in Excel (as formatted). I tried typing the number both with and without
the commas, into WIndows search, but Windows search still does not find the
Excel file that contains that number.

...excel 97 filename truncation in Windows XP Pro
I have a legacy application that runs in Excel 97. I have
Excel 97 and Excel XP loaded on a new machine that runs
Windows XP Pro. The legacy application fails because the
filename of a workbook is truncated during the saveas
command. When I do a manual saveas in Excel 97, the
filename truncates to the first letter. If I do the same
thing in Excel XP, the saveas works normally.
There have been a few posts describing the same problem. I searched google and

When you record a macro you have the option to save the macro
in this hidden workbook so you can use the macro in all your workbooks.
You can find the file in your Xlstart folder
