  • 2. 25 diget key...?
    I bought a computer acouple of years ago that had office in it (which I'm not sure). It also came with 2 disc's that would allow me to upgrade to office 2000 later if I wanted to. I had no problem installing the first disc...but the second is asking for a 25 diget key. Of course the seller who made these copies is no longer around. Is there anyway I can figure out what the key is...or do I have to go out and buy another recent office version? I'd appreciate any help.....K.
  • 3. Excel file keeps saying it's in use... but no one has it open?!
    Hello, I'm having this issue with one specific Excel file. A user "Schan" opened the file, edited it and saved then closed it. She went back to the file a few minutes later and the File was locked for editing by "Schan". When others try to open the file it also says its locked for editing by "Schan". We have tried saving the file as different names and placing in different directories on the network all with the same conclusion. I have closed out all the sessions on the server and even rebooted it but no luck. The only way I have found to circumvent this is to save the file to a local drive. This seems to allow editing. I would have them create a new Excel file but it has a ton of formatting and such so it would be a serious hassle. Thanks, Blaine
  • 4. Office Suite 97 difficulties/XP
    I am having some difficulties running Office 97 templates in both Word and Power Point in XP. (This problem did not occur with Windows 98SE). When I attempt to launch a new document I recieve the error message "cannot open the templates in the Workgroup Templates location you selected). I receive the same message in PP. I don't know whether this is a configuration problem or corruption issue. I have tried uninstalling/installing with no success. Any help would be appreciated. (PS - There is another message which I have posted concerning an unresolved problem playing audio clips in Clip Art 97 with XP. I hope these are the only two problems with running the Office 97 software in XP. Should there be any other potential issues, a "heads up" would be appreciated.) Thanks Vince Addante
  • 5. Unwanted small .gifs inserted in outgoing emails
    When I send an email, 8 small green squares (.gifs) are attached to the outgoing email. They don't appear in the sent email in my sent folder, I only know it is happening because people come back to me asking why they are there. I have removed and re-installed Outlook 2002 and they stopped for a day or 2 and now they are back in my sent emails again. I am using Word as my editor and they look a bit like bullets - could that have something to do with it? Where are they coming from and what do I do to stop it? Thanks and regards

File Name Too Long For Recycle Bin - Cannot Delete

Postby TWFyayBTdGV2ZW5zb24 » Tue, 11 Nov 2003 08:01:10 GMT


Somehow when transferring old emails from one IBM T40 to the My Documents folder on another, identical, IBM T40, much of the body of the text of an old Outllook email message somehow became part of the file name.  XP will not let me delete the file and gives me an error message that the file name is too long for the Recycle Bin ... and it will not let me rename it or move it either.  It is in a subfolder of My Documents and I have tried deleting all of the folders above it as well and I get the same message.

I have been on the phone for several hours with IBM Techinical Support and they have no solution as well, other than to call Microsoft.

5.Can you retrieve-If you DELETE the file 'Inbox' from the Recycle bin on desktop

I was trying to delete some files that involved several 
pop-up banner ads & windows from interfering with my 
search for telecommuting jobs.  While clicking around on 
the internet, somehow this SPYWARE program began to write 
itself on to my hard drive, so I went into Windows 
Explorer to FIND FILES or FOLDERS to find it & DELETE 
whatever was associated with it!  Well, in the process, I 
ended up sending these files to the RECYCLE BIN on my 
desktop to get rid of them.  However, in the process of 
DELETING them, I also deleted a file 'Inbox' that I 
thought was part of the problem.  I pray there is a way to 
retrieve these emails I accidentally deleted!!!  PLEASE 
HELP ME!  These were very important emails regarding 
employment!  Thank you.
