Changes not saved

I run Office 2002 SP2. Some people had reported that they 
did minor changes in excel (such as changing a value in a 
column), saved it, close the file, when the file re-
opened, the changes has not been saved. Help! Any Ideas?

The only time I've seen things like this is when there are two workbooks with
the same name.  You make the changes to one of them, save it, close it, but
reopen a different one?

(You don't have any macros that stop the save--this one is pretty farfetched. 
I'd look, but not get my hopes up too high.)

You may want to sit with one of the users who claim this happens and watch with
an eagle eye.  These things don't usually happen with someone else watching

How do change the amortization of loan template to accommodate pa.
I need an amortization table that can compute on partial years. For example, my immediate need is to amortize $437,410 at 10% over 8.52 years. The current template only allows for years stated in whole numbers from 1 - 30. What are the individual periods of compounding interest? Days/Months/Years/Decades/Biweekly/Semimonthly/??? Once you know that, you can figure out the number of periods in 8.52 years. With that information you can 1) extend your table past the 30 lines you currently have to include the number of periods, 2) use the PMT function to get periodic payments and you'...

How can I allow other users to make changes in a shared workbook
I have everything set up properly and other users cannot make and save changes in a shared workbook. Any suggestions? What happens when they try to make changes? If the worksheet is protected (and that's what is stopping them, unshare the workbook, unprotect the worksheet, unlock the cells that should be able to be changed, reprotect the worksheet, reshare the workbook and try it again.) What happens when they try to save? (I don't have a guess here.) wrote: > > I have everything set up properly and other users cannot make and save...

Excel Worksheet does not save
I worked on the spreadsheet the other day, deleting some lines and merging some cells and I saved it. But once I close and reopen it or send it to someone, the changes don't appear. It did not save the formatting changes. Do you know what would be the problem or the solution? My bet is that you didn't re-open the file you saved. I'd look for that file in other locations... Maybe Windows Start button|Documents will show you the file you recently changed. Or open excel and use: File|open Maybe it'll show up in the recently used file list. Work related...

date formatting changes
I have a VB macro that changes all date formats to dd/mm/yy. This works fine. However, sometimes when I go back into my files at a later date, I find that the dates convert back to dd/mm/yyyy. Why does this happen when I have specifically set the format to dd/mm/yy? There are some custom date formats that don't belong to you. I'm betting that you happened to use the same format that excel uses to tell it to pick up the format from the windows regional settings (under control panel). xl2002 is more honest with the way it deals with dates. (I think it's new with xl2002, but ma...

Changing Text to Number Problem.
I have a problem when importing information into an Excel spreadsheet. We have a system at work that has a front end Web based application (asp) that accesses an SQL database. Not all of the software is written yet, so to sort/filter data I have to copy lists of information from the Web based application to an Excel spreadsheet. Much of the information that I import (copy and paste) into the spreadsheet are hyperlinks to other information in the SQL database. To get rid of the hyperlinks once I have the list copied to my spreadsheet, I (copy and paste special, values only) the information on...

How to Save All Open Excel Windows??
How can I easily save all open windows in EXCEL? [I have Excel 97.] Thank you. -- Pat (To respond by email please remove "MYPANTS" from the email address at the top.)

Numbering bugs when saving Word 2007 as Word 97-2003
Using both Word 2003 and Word 2007 on Windows XP OS Okay, I've been dealing with this problem for awhile now. but it causes a lot of extra work. Half our staff use Word 2003 (home workers) and the other half have upgraded to Word 2007. I use both Word 2003 (telecommuting) and Word 2007 (office) and I do the finalizing of these files here. We share large-document files among us, so we save the files as Word 97-2003 so everyone can access. This results in numbering getting completely out of whack after you save it and reopne. Also the heading formatting is lost sometimes (b...

Can a posting account be changed to an allocation account?
We have an expense account that is in one department. We want to allocate that expense to other departments. Can the existing account be changed to an allocation account? If yes, how? If not, we can add a new account, but the AP staff is used to using this account number. Bob, You cannot switch an account from one posting type to another. The only thing I can think of is using the Account Combiner/Modifier tool available from Microsoft to change the existing account number to something else, which will then free up the number the accounting staff is familiar with and you can create a...

How to change font for cross-references
I have been a WORD user for years, but I still cannot work out how to make a cross-reference appear as a link. When I create a cross-reference it just appears as normal text (unlike applying a hyperlink). Is this a default and somewhere you can opt for colored text and an underline? And what is the point of a x-ref that cannot be identified as a x-ref until you actually hover over it? Unless I am missing something really basic, that seems really stupid. Word is still geared toward print, in which a hyperlink is pointless and hyperlink formatting (blue and underlined) ...

Changes in columns from page to page

They have 2 columns (It's a cookbook.) and I insert column breaks at the end of a recipe to force a complete recipe to start at the top of a column.
