how can now if the file is unicode or ansi
and if is ansi how can i convert it to unicode
According to Microsoft all Unicode text files should have a Byte Order
Marker (BOM) at the start of the file that is ignored by applications, but
gives them a way to use the file. ANSI files do not have a BOM so that
becomes the default:
I typically read the first three bytes (a UTF-8 BOM is three bytes) and
check the file type.
There are applications, like Notepad, that use the IsTextUnicode() function

lines with 8 columns per line) into an electronic excel file!
What is the best way to get a scanned document ito excel format so that
each cell is represented in the same way as the printouts?

I would like to close all attached PSTs (particularly archive) from
Outlook upon shutdown. In effect, when the user again launches
Outlook, he/she must manually attach their archive folder. Is there a
way to do this? Would prefer using group policy or putting this in the
Office transforms. The reason is the psts are located over a WAN and
would like to limit the hit on the network.
How would that limit the "hit"?
Note that psts over a lan/wan are not supported by Microsoft.

...wmf files not printing properly from mac office applications
Our office recently made the switch to Macs. We're now tasked with
brining in a lot of material developed on PC and updating it. We're
running into issues with files that have wmfs embedded. They look
fine on screen, but a lot of weird lines appear when printed. We've
tried printing to different printers (laser jet and ink jet), no

I use Outlook at home via a VPN and when I get to work I
need to restart the server in order to reconnect to my
pst files. How do I fix this?
If I understand you correctly, you are accessing a PST file that is stored
on your server, remotely via VPN? Note that this is pretty much guaranteed
to cause some problems (although I'd suspect more with data corruption in
the PST than anything else).
MS does not recommend accessing PST files from network drives - and a
network drive mapped over a VPN connection is going to have even more
serious potential for problems.

Normally when you click on a csv file excel opens it witout problem. However
I have one user who when they click on the csv file finds that it open in an

all the data is formatted correctly. I am able to open this file without
problem on my machine.
In order to try and fix this I uninstalled and reinstalled office. I also
tried doing it under another profile on the same machine to see if it was a

If you open a .csv file in Notepad you will see that it has no format.
As it's name implies, it is Values, Seperated by Commas.

Outlook can open them - if you're using Outlook Express, you won't be able

not send it as an attachment.

We're setting up an Access 2007 application that requires a ODBC connection
as well as having a specific folder added to the Trust Center. I want to

1) The entries are in two different locations in the registry. Once I've
exported them using the EXPORT, is it just a matter of copying and pasting
the contents of the two files together? I'd like a single reg file to make
it easier to setup.
2) When reg files are merged in, if any entries already exist with the same
values, are they ignored...
