can't save changes to workbook; ready only
We use and Microsoft Excel Workbook as our database and I am the primary
person that makes changes and those changes are saved on the other two
people's copies who work in the office.
This morning when I tried to save changes it would not let me and changed my
copy and their copies of the workbook to a [read only] [shared]
[compatibility mode] database.xls
This when I clicked save a box came up stating that there over 265 persons
using the database at this time. Which can't be possible since we only have 3
people in our office who use it only a daily basis.

This Macros out is a report which is printed on a Worksheet in the

this is because I dont want the new file to contain the Macro .
The problem is , the formatting of the Output sheet (Column lengths ,

My computer crashed but not before I saved my Outlook folder. The problem is
how do I import all of the data (emails, contacts, calendar) into the right
places? The old was 2003; the new is 2007. As of now, the old "Outlook"
folder is sitting on my new Desktop, which probably doesn't make the most
sense. The main issue is that all of my contacts are listed as "Personal
Contacts" when I really want to make them just "Contacts" in general and
create a subset of truly personal contacts. Thanks.

textboxes2 & 3 are for plus and minus tolerances. I am

I have a strange problem:
- I have a Access 2003 db in 2000 format
- I have a report in that database
- I am printing the report to different printers or pdf
- Suddenly the default for Number of Copies is "4" and not "1" in the Print
If I am importing the report to a new db, the defualt setting of 4 number of
copies is still there. There is no code in the report and the problem is
there even if I are in design view or not.
- Tthe 4 must be in the report, no other reports have the default 4.
- It is default 4 in every printer
...Copy a folder and objects
From a workbook I wanted a button that would copy a folder to another
drive. After dinging around I came up with this:
Set CpyFolder = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
CpyFolder.CopyFolder "c:\TestIt", "d:\TestIt", overwrite
This works but I have no idea why. The CopyFolder only works if you use
a Set = something then use the Something.copyfolder. This seems just
idiotic and useless.
Why not just "Copy c:\folder, d:\folder" and make it easy? What is the
purpose of adding the complication of objects?
Also... the copy process was...Print Group Permissions
Am wondering if there is a quick way to generate a report that will print
out group permissions for my database objects.
I can always write them down, but it would be very time-consuming to note
each level of permission for each and every database element.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
The built-in Documenter can do this:
Tools | Analyze | Documenter
I prefer to use my own tool for this:
My tool can document many areas of your database and usually with less pages than the Documenter.
...Printing two colors without color separation
I am using Publisher 2007 and have struggled for a year to get adobe to
create two color separations. The postscript print driver just doesn't work
for me or a colleague that is working on the same file in another city
(although I used to be able to print two color separations). Since our
printer requires a PDF file I wondered if there was a an easy way to print
two separate PDF of the same publisher file by creating a different color
scheme or creating unique fonts that print some headers only in one color
and rename the same headers with the font colors and lines set to white. I...cannot change part of a merged cell
This is the error a user receives when he tries to copy one cell into
another made up of 3 merged cells.
Sometimes it works and other times it doesn't.
Is this a fluke?
Copying one cell to a merge of three cells should work.
Are you "sure" it is only one cell that is being copied each time?
Maybe "sometimes" it is one cell and "other times" more than one.

Is it possible to modify fields through VB on pivotcharts? For instance I
have a chart that shows sales per date. And I'd like to use the same chart

Click once on the particular bar where you wish to have
different color, system will select all bars in the chart.
Click once again, the system will select only the bar
that you are clicking on. Call out Format Data Point and
select the desired color or pattern.

Hope you can help.
I am exploring a huge dataset of data by U.S. zip codes.
Each row is a zip code, the state the zip belongs to, the state number,
and a count of widgets.

widgets as the y-values. The resultant plot shows the distribution of
widgets for each state very quickly and easily and all on one graph.

In FP 2000, Reports view, how may I print out a hard copy of

have not been able to get a hard copy to print out. Even when I
do an Edit - Select all - Copy, then open a text editor, or MS

I can do an Alt - PrtScr and get a hard copy of that part of the

Any guidelines would surely be appreciated. Gordon
