Why does [group] appear after the filename in Excel 2003?

Hi. My Outlook 2002 used to show whether I had replied to a message and on
what date in a yellow bar across the top part of the preview pane. I can't
seem to find out how to get that to show again.
Does anyone know how to set this option up? I have looked all around in the
menus and such but cannot see where to do this.
Anyone know the answer to this problem?

When I create a hyperlink to an existing excel file and then click on it,
explorer opens to the folder that the file is in instead of the excel file
opening. Just to test I pointed it to a word document and the doc file
opened fine. How do I get a hyperlink to open the excel file? Thanks.
Are you sure it isn't to the folder instead. Only way I can reproduce that
is if I select the folder instead of the file when I create the hyperlink.
As expected if I use a hyperlink to a particular file it will open..

I've recently been upgraded to two monitors (one of the few things IT

one on each monitor! Any solutions?

I am working on a large spreadsheet full of numerical data. It contains
several dozen bar and line graphs embedded across several worksheets. I have
a decent understanding of Excel and Excel graphs but do not use VBA.
The problem I have with Excel is that it sometimes – and unpredictably –
(vertically) shrinks the plot areas of the embedded graphs. This can happen
between opening the document and printing it. Other times, the plot area
would shrink if I click on the plot area with my mouse, and then click off on

I have crated a Pivot tabel with data I want to show in a Chart. My problem
is when I refresh data the colours of the "data series" changes.
For exaple I want one of my series "OK" always be shown in green colour, but
after a refresh of pivot all colours changes.
This problem is not only colouring. If I have made changes to my chart so
that one series ar plotted on a secondary axis, and I change it to another
chart type (e.g. the secondary should be shown as a line instead of column)
this also changes when refreshing the data. Most irritating!

This is more of an network operating system setting question.
I would think putting the file on a share that the users only had readonly

But this would mean that the users could still copy (not move) the file.
And they wouldn't be able to update the workbook.
