Can't open file
I loaded MS Powerpoint (I was one of the unlucky ones who purchased the XP
Office version that did not include it), and two of my files will no longer
open in Publisher. They are based on an inventory template. Other existing
..pub files I had created do open, but these two do not. The templates
display, then an error message pops up saying "Microsoft has encountered an
error and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience". The program
then shuts down. The error report contents are long. I have tried
uninstalling and reinstalling the program, but to no avail. Any ideas...Save a new file with the name that is in cell "C7"
Here is what I want to do:
Open up a template. Enter information. Click on save, and when the window
shows up asking me to name the file, I want it to automatically use a file
name with the value in cell C7.
As an example, if cell C7 has "Milton 287-12", I want to automatically name
the file"Milton 287-12" when I save for the first time.
Is this possible?

1. Is there a simple way to convert JPG files to Viso?
2. Or is there a way to scale them to a Viso drawing?
3. If 1-2 can't be done what if I was to draw lines on top of the imported
jpg floor plan layout using it as a guide then save that as a vsd file?
jpgs are bit oriented and cannot be converted to visio. you might consider
inserting your image into a background page and then create your drawing on
an associated foreground page (using page setup). I'd probably use the

Does Excel have versioning (ala the versioning option in Word under file)?
How do I use Excel's versioning feature, if it exists? If it doesn't exist,
are there some reasonable alternatives?
There's no automatic version control in Excel. You could choose
File>Save As, and give add the date to the file name at the end of each day.
You might want to do something similar in your Word documents too. The
built-in version control can cause corruption, according to this article

I am planning to copy the .pst file from my desktop to my laptop to ensure I
can work away from my desk.
The laptop accesses the internet using a mobile bradband dongle and uses
slightly diferent e-mail settings to the desktop.
When I transfer the .pst file will the e-mail settings transfer to the
laptop or can I use settings just for the laptop and keep them even when the
..pst transfers across?
Account settings are not part of the .PST file, just make sure Outlook is
closed on BOTH machines when doing the .PST transfers.

Senior Engineer...Pivot Tables
I have a excel file a fairly large database in one sheet and another sheet
for pivot tables from that databse. once the pivot tables are loaded the
capacity jumps from a mere 175 or 200 kb to 9 or 10 mb. and gives me
difficulties in saving the file in network drives. how can i keep the file to
low capacity and also keep the pivot tables information. I refresh the Pivot
tables only once a week and the result stays as it is till the next week.

Thanks to some good help from a previous post, I have been able to create

small problem. When I add new xml to the log file, the new nodes are
appended to the original file. What I really want is for the log file to
grow as "report nodes" are added. Also, I am a bit concerned about
performance, particularly as the file grows in size. I must write to an xml
file (vs. a database) and am trying to understand the best way to do this. I

This was very straight forward using Easy CD Creator.
How is this done? It this possible?
Thanks in advance.
In WMP, press F3 and in the dialog that appears, add the folder

No - if you open a document and use SaveAs to save it with the same name you
won't get a prompt. If you use SaveAs to save it with a different existing
name, you will.

I used PHP's 'fgetcsv'
(http://us3.php.net/manual/en/function.fgetcsv.php) to write data to a
..csv file. The data pretty much formatted when I opened it in 'Context'
(http://www.context.cx/) but when opened in Excel 2003, one column which
contains data like *"$105,138"* is showing as *########*.
When the cell is hovered over it shows *$105,138* in the tip but shows
*105138* in the top textbox (the one next to fx label)
How do I 'tell' Excel to display *$105,138* instead of *########* ?
