A text file has data in a format like the below:
Cell 1 data
Cell 2 data
Cell 3 data

Cell 11 data

Cell N data

insert the data properly in the table.

Has anybody stumbled upon a problem when you link a file
to an OE 2002 item or embed an object in it and then when
you double click it from within the item nothing happens.
Do you mean Outlook or Outlook Express? OE = Outlook Express but there
isn't a v2002.
if you mean Outlook and are referring to tasks and other special item types,
it's a known problem.

I created my video dsp plugin by visual studio 2005 and MS SDK 6.1.
For more codec support I also installed K-Lite codec pack.
The plugin worked fine for media files encoded in divx/xvid,
but when playing WMVs, WMP didn't call any of my plugin functions.
I tried to create another plugin in dual mode but result was the same.
Please help... Thanks.

I created a presentation in ppt2007 (so it's saved as .pptx). In it, I have a

then view it on a machine without ppt2007 installed, the link does not work.

I have had to place all my information from a word document to a csv file.
However, I notice that the formatting is not saved and the content appears in
lines without any line or para breaks. The formatting is very important in
the project. Each time I try to reformat, it goes back to the "non-formatted"
look. Does anyone know how i can save the formatting options in a csv file?

If you have the second calendar open, simply display it in a table format,
then drag and drop the files to the primary calendar.
