"Urgent" use script to share the workbook

Hi all, 

I have this case
I put the excel file .xls in the server, and use some vba script to protect 
the workbook and add some validation too, now when the user open this .xls, 
it copy the workbook to the user local harddisk c:\program file\.....somewhere
so when the user save the xls, it only save to its harddisk, not the server 

Any professional can tell me what should I do ?
It is a urgent case for me >_<

Thanks very much

Hey man,

Consider this.  If users did save back to the server (if it let them), it'd 
overwrite changes made by other users who saved earlier.  Have you 
considered using Tools, Share workbook?

Somewhat Urgent
Good morning list...some background: My new EX07 server is called app7.myddomain.com. It is a single server (no edge role) and user mailboxes are therefore on app7. I publish mail.mydomain.com as the external SSL certificate and access point. The SSL certificate for IIS is registered to mail.mydomain.com Access to https://mail.mydomain.com/owa works great. User mailboxes are configured to look at Exchange as app7.mydomain.com inside Outlook (it is also what is 'autodiscovered'. Two questions: 1. Users inside the firewall, when opening up Outlook 2007, get an SSL warning that th...

OWA/IIS has started playing up
Hi everyone, this is the 3rd time this has happened. The box is running Exch2k with OWA. The IIS server is using a SSL cert from a 3rd party supplier and it was working for the last 8 months. Last week, users (OWA) started receiving "The page cannot be displayed" errors. Checking the IIS virtual folders, 2 had the red "STOP" on them: Exchange (M:) \Public folder and \MBX. When I manualy browsed to the folders they seemed to be fine again but the OWA only works after a server restart. I have tried restarting the IIS services from within IIS and that does not fix it either....

Urgent! Domain controller lost
I used to have two 2003 domain controller servers (SERVER1 and SERVER2). One of them (SERVER1) broke down and it's not available anymore. I need: - To safely remove SERVER1 from DC list in AD (in SERVER2). - To install a new server as DC (SERVER3). I googled a lot searching info on removing a failed DC but it doesn't seem like an easy task. What security measures must I take on SERVER2 before removing? Thanks a lot! Hello Gaspar, See my article about metadata cleanup, this includes also the information about the running DC: http://msmvps.com/blogs/mweber/arc...

Restricting Chart Colours
We have implemented a corporate chart template by inserting the corporate charts into the user-defined charting section. I am finishing here tomorrow (Friday Australia time), and they have decided that although the charts have the required colours they would also like to restrict the charts to those colours. Can someone in the know just tell me it can't be done so I can tell them that please. (although if it can be done let me know that as well so I can at least tell them what to do). Thanks Derek Derek - I suppose you could change everyone's color palette. The bottom tw...

Invisible Pictures
Never had a prob before, but since yesterday, when I try to put a picture into MS Publisher (2003) it's invisible. It's there, because the placeholders adapt to the new shape and size - but no picture is actually visible. I've tried it with images I've used previously just to make sure it wasn't anything to do with the actual image I was trying to put in, but no joy.

The archive option is also enabled, and it is archiving email correctly, however nothing is being moved to my junk email folder. I assume that I do not need to have the junk email filtering on in outlook do i? Outlook is currently not set to do any junk email filtering. I was hoping that exchange would move the mail to the junk folder rather t...

Hi, We had implemented CRM in native domain. Since some users are complaining regarding the slow performance, we plan to redeploy the same data into new server under the same domain using the same OU.
