how do I open files from other versions in Publisher 98?
I have Publisher 98, and am trying to open a Publisher file emailed to me
from someone else. I don't know what version they have, but I would guess
it's from Windows ME, because I know they don't have XP. And when I try to
open it in my Publisher, it says, "Publisher cannot open files from a
different version". Is there any update or anything I can download to fix
this, or do I have to buy a different version, or is there a way the other
person could save their file so that I could open it? Thanks very much.

I am doing queries on a large workbook of multiple Excel spreadsheets. When I query the data, the original data formats don't carry through to the query results. Is there a way to carry original formatting through to Excel Query results
Any insight would be appreciated
No, you can import the data, but not the formats. If you're importing
programmatically, you could apply the formatting as part of the import

I have found instructions on how to add a header/footer but can't find how to

I have a worksheet wih a full year's dates in the cells running down a

In case this is pertinent: the date series begins with the entry of one date

No, simply SAVE the workbook after you adjust it.
Next time, it will open at the size you want.

Calculation, auto or manual, is set by the first workbook that's opened. It

for a workbook you might have opened first that's been set to Manual and
