Office 2008 Files: Read Only, POSIX, ACLs Frustration!
We have a fully patched Leopard server with SMB sharepoints.
I'll create a new folder using my Leopard client, we'll call it PermTest.
I wish to lock down this folder, so I set POSIX permissions to Owner:
Decker12, Read/Write, Group: Sales, Read/Write, Everyone: None.
I'll drop some Word and Excel files in that folder, and propagate the
permissions. I'll use TinkerTool System and "ls -le" to verify that the
permissions are set correctly on the folder and all the documents contained
inside of it.
I verify that from the client, Decker12 and members of the Sale...stream read error
I have a small excel file (200k) which worked fine until i changed the
file name (I cannot remember the original name as it was just letters
and numbers which was the reason for changing the name!). Now it will
not open and upon trying several Excel recovery programs some of them
told me it was a stream read error' and the recovery failed. Any advice
or is this file a write off?

I see many questions about how to enable automatic tracking of emails, but my
question is the opposiet. We want to disable all aitomatic tracking, both
between users and between users and contacts.
We don't use tracking tokens. We've tried every combination of user and
system flags, but can't get it right. I know it must be possible to do what
we want, so hope someone can point me the right direction.

Sometimes, the best way to learn is to turn the macro recorder on and then do
what you want manually.
Then turn the macro recorder off and look at the code.

If you record a macro while doing you will get something you can boil down
to something like this.

...outlook express not able to read news -- help wanted
I use outlook express 6 to read news. Before installing WINXPSP2 it
worked great but after that installation it no longer does.
When I enter a news group by clicking on its name I get the list of
posts as usual, but as soon as the list is loaded the group is closed
and I'm back to the list of my subscribed groups.
Is there anyone who knows a fix to this problem?

...I changed value scale numbers
I have a range of percentage data values ranging from 97% to 100% and the
chart starts the bar graph at 97%. I tried to override the "scale" numbers
but it goes back to start at 97%. I want it to start at 0% up to 100%. The
only way I can get it to start at 0% is to put a value in the data table of
0% but then it shows on graph and I don't want that. Why when I change the
minimum to 0 and max to 1 if refused to take it. It did not do this is the
