Why does [group] appear after the filename in Excel 2003?
I upgraded from Office 2000 to Office 2003 this morning. An Excel document I
created yesterday in a shared network location that has never been touched by
anyone but me is now opening with [Group] status. I need to activate

also can't locate a definition for this setting or how to turn it off, nor do

When I create a hyperlink to an existing excel file and then click on it,

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 am working on a large spreadsheet full of numerical data. It contains

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

...Preventing Excel files from being moved or deleted
What permissions setting is used to prevent users from moving or deleting an
Excel file on a network?
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
access would be enough.
But this would mean that the users could still copy (not move) the file.
And they wouldn't be able to update the workbook.
