Not enough memory to open Excel

I have been using MS Office Excel 2003 for months.  Last week it worked just 
fine.  The last couple of days, I receive the following message:  "Not enough 
memory to run Microsoft Office Excel.  Please close other applications and 
try again."  I have closed applications, deleted files (included all 
temporary files) and I am still unable to open Excel.  I have been instructed 
to insert the original CD which I have done.  The problem is on my laptop; my 
PC works fine.  Any help would be appreciated.  I have used computers for 
years, but I am a novice when it comes to specialized stuff.  I haven't 
installed anything new since last week when the Excel documents were working 
fine.  Thanks.

David, I posted the item for discussion and I received a message "An error 
occurred while sending your post.  We're sorry but there was a problem with 
the system and your post was not received.  The error has been reported to 
Operations and will be investigated as soon as possible.  Please try again 
later."  I also received the same message when I posted this item.  I replied 
to the other post with another question and I received the same error 
message.  So I don't know (or didn't know) if these messages were/are getting 
through or not.  Sorry.

Hidden Figure after closing then opening the Visio file
Dear all, I have a Visio file which has PNG/JPEG figures attached on it. However if I close that file, then opening it again those figures are gone? And whenever I saved the Visio file as EPS or other, I also can't see the figure. Strangely, I still can see the "dashed frame" of those figure in Visio file. It seems that the figures are still there, I just can't see it. Why is this happening? Is there a way to prevent or recover those figure back again?

Importing unopened worksheet into an open Workbook
If an unopened Excel Workbook only contains a single worksheet, is it possible to import the data from that worksheet into another Workbook that is open, without having to open the other file? You can write formulas in the open workbook that refer to the cells in the 2nd workbook, regardless of the number of worksheets it contains. This creates a "link" from workbook #1 to #2. If #2 isn't open when you open #1, you'll be asked whether to update the information from #2. This will happen without you seeing #2 appear on the screen. On Sat, 5 Mar 2005 15:33:03 -0800, "...

Days and dates in Excel
I'm tired of entering slashes to tell Excel that the numbers I'm entering are dates and colons to tell Excel that it's dealing with times.

Unfortunately, no one told me where to put this in Excel when I cut and paste it from the website.
