Word 2010 beta: Cannot save my Normal.dotm file
Using the Word 2010 beta on Win7. I cannot save my Normal.dotm file - at
least not usefully. I can open the file, edit it, add macros to it, whatever,
and it will save (in the folder directory, the .dotm file will show a change
in file size). But when I close Word, or if I open a new document in Word, the
Normal.dotm file is reset to the default, losing any changes I've made.
I can save and use other .dotm templates; but not the default Normal.dotm

I have a chart which should get a title. However, this should be partly be
used from a cell e.g.
"counted with 5%"
5% should be taken from the cell and used in the title.
Is this possible?
Yes it's possible but all of the chart title needs to be in the cell. So you
may need to use a helper cell and concatenate text and value.

Suddenly I am getting the following message when I try to close a workbook:

The mysterious thing is that it does not happen consistently and that, after

What might be the cause of this error message and can the "invalid

I haven't used VC6 for some time, but if I remember right you can just open
the .dsp file and it will create a .dsw file for you. It typically goes in
the same folder with the code.

I know that I can use "File Locations" in "Options" so that whenever I use
the "Open..." command in Word, it will open to a specific folder. I'm
wondering if there is a way that this can be applied not to a folder but to a
specific drive on a network.
Our company has a main public drive and has also assigned each of the Staff
their own private drive. Is there a way to access the "main page" (for lack
of a better term) of my private drive each time I use "Open..." in Word?

I have a chart that has blank info in the legend. I want

To add information to the legend, you need to add to a series name.
Right click on the chart, select Source Data from the pop up menu, click
on the series tab, select a series, and either type something in the
name box, or click in it and select a cell with the mouse.

Hi, I'm using Word as my e-mail editor in Outlook 2003 and want to change
the default Style for e-mails from 'Normal' to 'Normal (Web)'.
The problem is that new e-mails and replies in HTML format use the 'Normal'
Microsoft Word 'Style', and this has no gap after paragraphs. The upshot of
this is that when sending an e-mail, I have to press return twice to create
a gap, but when the recipient views this, their software shows it as four
gaps (the extra carriage return I typed + their correctly viewed HTML
carriage return after each line).
E.g. I type this:
