Excel Regional Date Format Options
A client of ours in NZ is complaining that date format options for English
(New Zealand) have changed from older versions of excel (they are using 2003)
Some of their spreadsheets have dates formatted as dd-mmm-yy, mmm-yy and
dddd,dd,mmm but these options do not exist anymore.
Is there anyway to add options to this list without using the custom format
I just compared the Excel 97 and Excel 2003 built-in date formats and they
are mostly unchanged. 2003 has a few more but I don't think there were any
subtractions. The formats dd-mmm-yy and mmm-yy are righ...MS Excel 2003 cannot auto calculate formula, need to press F9 each time
I don't know why my excel 2003 new worksheet cannot auto calulate

show the new figure. there is "calculate" word at the left hand bottom
of the screen.

any advise is greatly appreciated.

Is there a setting to make Word 2007 default to use "No Spacing" under the
Styles of the Home Tab?
It's very annoying that it defaults to normal. I never use it!!! It's
especially when doing a Mail Merge and I have to put Name, Name2, Contact,
Address, Address2, etc.. all on one tiny label. Can't do that with the
spacing it does by normal. Each time I have to change it to no spacing.

...Windows XP: Open file in read-only: Word, Excel, Visio
I'm often sharing files on a network drive with someone. Often, one
of us knows that we don't need to open a file for modification, and we
only need read-access. Is there a way to open a file in read-only
mode so that when someone does need to open it for modification, the
read-only user is not blocking that?
If there is not a way to do this native to Windows XP, is there a way
to do it from the three applications that we use most, namely Word,
Excel, Visio? All are 2003 versions.
I used to save files like this in "read only recommended" mode.
