linked files

When I open a file it says it is linked to another file.  When I check the 
links it is linked to a file I no longer have.  How do I find where the link 
is coming from and get rid of it.  Going to the Edit Links doesn't seem to 
get rid of the file.

Shared excel file dissapears

Macro syntax to open file in current explorer folder
Pt 1 : MS Excel 97 SR-2 ----------------------- I would like to use a macro code line starting Workbooks.OpenText FileName:=".\AmsAll-1.prn", _ to open the tab delimited file "AmsAll-1.prn" in the folder from which I launch the Excel application. However the ".\" path qualifier always reverts to the C: drive, not the K: mapped drive that I access all my project files from.

Publisher 2003 file not updated on save
Hi, I have a client using Publisher 2003 under XP. The file she is working on,, is stored on a Windows 2003 server which she accesses via a mapped P: drive.

Today when she came in she opened the file, only to find that it was missing much of her work. I checked and in fact the latest version on the server is from about 1pm. I had no luck finding a temporary version on the XP machine's C: dr...

delimited file format issue
i get reports from (idx) a program that are delimited files. the columns are all fine but 1 and i can't figure it out. its supposed to be money and comes across as 11500. in the original program (idx) it would look like 115.00 and that is how i want it to look in excel. i tried the easy stuff like formatting and i keep getting 11500.00 or 1150.0 in my simple mind i thought it would be easy to move that decimal but its not turning out that way. i have thousands of line items so doing it one by one is not the optimum solution. any help is appreciated. excel 2003 os XP You really wa...

Conversion to pdf file problem
I have MS Publisher 2007 and Windows XP. I created a document which will be printed on 11 x 8 1/2 paper (landscape style) and folded in half- booklet. The individual page is 5.5 x 8.268 and thus two pages are printed on one landscape sheet. I can use the Print Preview and the publisher document looks fine but when I convert and publish it to a pdf document, the pages are screwy. The pages are narrow with text cut off . What am I doing wrong? Are you using the *save as a PDF* add-in from Microsoft? How did your booklet lose a quarter of an inch? Try the add-in, see if it converts c...

Which class should handle the request to open a file
Hi! I'm writing a simple game (sdi, doc-view) and new games are started by opening files from a menu item (more on what the actual game is about below). However, I find it difficult to figure out what I should handle where. I was thinking of handling open file request (ON_COMMAND()) in the main frame and if the user selects a valid file then notify the document class about it (let the document class do the actual reading of the file). The files contain a text-represation of a maze and the user is supposed to control a character that must find its way out of the maze. The faster an...

I have password protected a file, and now that the untrustworthy employee is gone, need to unprotect it.

Changing of Cell protections after saving Excel File (2002)
This problem occurs when I protect a document using a macro 4.0 function: =PROTECT.DOCUMENT(TRUE,,,TRUE,TRUE). When I use the function within a macro4.0 macro, on an original file, everything works fine. The sheet has unlocked cells, and when the sheet is protected, it allows me to access those cells. But if I save the file, or another name, then the fun begins. The enable selection of the sheet( view codes) has gone from 0-xlNoRestrictions to -4142- xlNoSelection. This locks me out of doing anything in the sheet. When I unprotect and then re-protect the sheet using the T...

ProbleM: when I restore a mailbox using Exmerge with a pst file, nothing is transferred.
Hi, I am practising Exmerge for a big remote site migration in a couple of weeks. One thing I dont understand is that I can backup one test mailbox fine using Exmerge (I know this works, as I have opened the mailbox pst file within outlook and everything is there), but when I perform the restore using the pst file, nothing happens. There is no error messages, and Emerge goes through the motions (though it finishes supsiciously quick), but when I open the mailbox, no emails have been restored. Although it is great that Exmerge is working for the backup part of the stage, I am disappointed it i...
