I have copied a portion of a pdf file into my word doc. I sent the doc to a
friend and now my friend says when they open the doc it is blank. But when
they print the doc everything shows up printed...HELP?
Does your friend have the option set to show picture placeholders, rather
than the pictures themselves?
Hope this helps.

I have a HP 4L LaserJet printer correctly configured in my system. Normally,
I sent text files to print on that printer (invoices, credit notes, etc.) and
I want to have this text output from the spooler to be in a text file instead
of the printer. Can you help me doing this?
Thank you very much.
If I understand you correctly, there is definitely no easy way of
accomplishing this. You will most likely have to add code to your app to do
this yourself - remember that Windows is a graphical user-interface, where
you position strings at specific pixel-locations, whereas you wou...Fill function with file reference

My problem is that Excel crashes when i open one of my files.
I have experienced this only ones before in all of theese years I hav

The file that causes Excel to crash:

An IT expert converted all of my Macintosh Clarisworks files to Excel/Word

save them. I keep getting a "read only" message. I have checked Excel help
and followed the directions, but I get the same "read only" answer. How can I
open these files, change them, and then save the new files? Thanks.

...How to insert the date the file was last altered on PP slide
In slide master ... I know how to get the current date that the file is being
printed to appear on the slides, but how do I get the date that the file was
last altered (or saved) to appear on the slides? The current date I am
printing the document is really irrelevant if you have the last saved/altered
date. I am not a programmer, just a frequent user of PowerPoint.
What version of PPT?
The wrong information is readily available in the meta data for the file.
The last update date is usually when it was last opened. The best way to
get this would be to set up a save event ca...must use "Save As" after opening Word Perfect files
We have one user who, when he opens a WP doc, the document does not open with
the document name (i.e. Sales.wpd), it opens as Document 1 (or 2, or 3,
etc.). He can't just hit "Save" to save the document, the dialogue box comes
up as "Save As".
What could be causing this? It's only an issue with one user. No one else
had this problem.
Is the user opening the file from within Word or from an Explorer window
(such as My Computer)? If the latter, then it would appear that the default
action for .wpd files has been set to New rather than Open (althoug...OL2000 files on server

What type of mailbox do you have? The reason that I ask is that offline

microsoft exchange server and said mail is kept on the server.

I'm using Excel 2007. I've saved an updated version of a file over the
old version of the file. Somehow the old and new version are now
linked. If I try and run a macro I'm told that it is not available or
that the macros are disabled. (The macros are enabled) At this point
the linked file is opened. If I break the links between the two files
then the macro buttons are disabled and I can't get them back. What am
I doing wrong? Seems so simple.
Try reassigning the macro to the button (or object) that starts your macro.

Yes it is! Click on the Options button in that email and under Delivery

Unless Sphygmic can export to a file format that Excel can
understand (xls, txt, csv, etc), then Excel cannot read the file.

#1. Are you working off a floppy? If yes, then don't do this.
Use windows explorer to copy from floppy to harddrive and work from there (and
save there). Then use windows explorer to copy back to floppy.
#2. You're saving to a location that you don't have permission to save to.
#3. Your diskdrive is out of space???

I am using EXCEL2000 and trying to compare two similar multisheet workbooks

both recommended in other tips. The software is managed corporately so I
