Unable to open Attachments (Environment Wide)
Going to post this in the Exchange group, as I havent had any luck in the
Outlook group. This may actually be a server security issue, but I am a bit lost
on a solution.
We recently migrated to Office XP at our corporate office. Since the upgrade, I
am having several complaints of attachments not openning. After researching the
issue, it appears be random and the current solution is to forward the message
to the receiver, and then launch the attachment. The attachments are not
blocked and are simple Word, Excel and PDF files. The user receives no error.
Double clicking the attachmen...File will no open in 2000
I have a Excel file that was developed in Office 97 and I
am useing office 2000. The error message comes up and
says Microsoft Visual Basic.......An Error occured while
loading Sheet...........Then it closes Excel!!!!
I have other Excel files that were created in Office 97
and they work fine. I think the error has something to do
with the VBS code that the micro is useing.
Any help or advise will be greatly appreciated.
Try opening your file while xl is in safe mode.

A quick question on the "Workbook Open" event: When I load up Excel and open
the workbook, this event triggers. If I then close the workbook, without
closing Excel, then open the workbook, it does not occur. Close down the
worksheet and Excel, then open it, it triggers.
Is this normal operation?
Could it have to do with the possibility the I had set
Application.EnableEvents = False, before exiting the workbook.

I did a database of names and addresses in Excel 2000 and would like to share
it with a Mac user. Any hope? To make matters worse, the Mac user is our

As long as you saved your database as an Excel file, it will open fine
in MacXL. Mac and Win Office file formats are identical for the last 4
versions of each.

I am using Excel's open dialog to locate a file that needs
to be imported. The only way I have found to set the
default directory for this dialog (so it is in the
directory I want when the dialog opens) is to change the
current directory to the desired directory, open the
dialog and locate the file and then put the current
directory back to the orignal directory when the dialog
closes. Too much directory hopping, if you ask me...
Is there an easier way to do this?
but this is the way how you have to do it :-)

My first guess is that opening excel files inside might be the problem.
But I just tried it (xl2002, MSIE 6.0, and win98), and the Options were ok
(except for one--statusbar).
What options are you writing about?
And if you are opening within MSIE, you may want to stop that behavior and just
open in excel.

There's a setting in Windows that you can change.
