pl;ace your cursor in the white window of the Contact.  Then Insert | File, 
single click the file you want and use the tiny drop down arrow, bottom 
right corner to select: Insert as Hyperlink.

In the past, when downloading and .ofx or .qif file, I was asked whether to save or open the file. If I saved it, money opened it the next time I opened Money. If I open Money and there is a .qif or .ofx file waiting for import, will it know what money datat file to choose?

MS Delete Links Addin (Wizard)
I need to delink charts from their source data before posting the workbook on a network. Each worksheet has 8 charts. There are about 12 worksheets. There are bar charts and line charts.

Excel not detecting that a file is currently being edited
I am having a problem with Excel files located on our NetWare 6 server. I am not sure if it is a NetWare issue or an Excel issue.

We are use both Excel 2000 and 2002 to edit the file. This problem has just started in the last few ...
