Did ya ever have one of those lucky accidents that you like and would like to

I reopended the file, I noticed that the "refresh" button was activated and
would auto import when I clicked. The best part is that the import specs

I created a file in Excel on a WinXP PC that I called
pron.xls and saved it in the my documents folder, I then
decided to move it and using Windows Commander F6 key
(Rename and Move) I attempted to move it to a different
folder and rename it to prn.xls at the same time.
This process caused the file to disappear!!
I now realise that this was because prn.xls is an invalid
I tried to search for the original and new names but
neither existed. There is no sign of it in the recycle bin
Is there anyway of retreiving the lost data?

I am attempting to create a macro that will save a workbook with the
file name under which I save the workbook coming from the contents of
one of the cells in the workbook. Suppose that each time the workbook
was altered, a specific cell (A1 on Sheet1 for instance) contained the
desired file name for that workbook. It is my goal to create a macro
that automatically assigns said workbook a name based on the content of
that cell. Any help would be most appreciated.

I have been backing up my laptop Outlook info to PST files each month
and I have about 7 of these PST files and erasing some content like
email right after each backup so as to keep my main Outlook datafile

how AutoArchive works and realize the inconvenience in having so many
different files that overlap in data but do have distinct emails and
contacts. So I would now like to combine all of them into one big
file but I wonder if there is an automated and preferred way to do

My problem now is this:
The macro saves test.txt to Excel's current active folder, rather than the
folder that the current workbook is contained in.
For example, if I last saved an Excel workbook to c:\workbooks\, and the
workbook that I have open exists in c:\workbooks\workbook1\, when I run the
macro it saves the text file in c:\workbooks\. If I ...How do I merge two publisher files?
I am using publisher 2003. I am creating an 80 page catalog. I like to save
page 1-10 as file one, pages 11-20 as file two and so on. When I am finished
with my catalog I need to send one file to the printer. How can I merge all
of my pages together in one file?
Copy and paste. Or if you have Acrobat (not just the free Reader) you can
create a single .pdf file with the parts.

I had a hard drive "repair" and re-loaded Publisher 2000.
Now the program won't let me insert .jpgs (or any other
graphics file) -- I get an error message saying it can't
convert them. I've tried to re-install from the CD,
including the graphics section, but to no avail. Any ideas?
Maybe your graphic filters are corrupt
Look in a folder similar to this
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Grphflt
If you cannot insert any image rename the .flt files to something like jpegim32.old
and drag a new instance from your CD.

I downloaded a QIF file from my bank dating back to 01/01/2004. When I
imported this file into Money 2005 the balance was way off compared to the
bank's website. In comparing each tranaction I noticed some were missing in
Money. Each group of missing transactions were all on the same day and for
the same amount. Also, for each group one transaction would be in Money and
the others missing (ex. There are 5 transactions according to the bank but
only 1 shows in Money). I opened the QIF file in Notepad and can see the

Is it possible to have the MSMoney file in a shared directory on a LAN,
so that it can be accessed from two computers (each running a copy of

computers be running simultaneously, is there a file access lock (like
with Word), or is there danger of corrupting the file contents? Any
insight into the subject would be helpful.
PS. I know of the "share file" feature, but I don't want to use it,
since it seems to require that the file be exported to MSN first.

You need to explain exactly what you are trying to do, and what is/is-not
happening when you try.
