  • 1. Recent Trouble Opening Files in Office
    This has started within the last couple of weeks. I try to click on a word or excel file to open it and I get usually (but not always) get the same dialog box: " Windows cannot find ___________ (file name). Make sure you have typed the name correctly and try again." What I usually do is open a blank excel sheet and then use the open feature from there to get to my files. Has anyone else experienced something like this?

  • 3. 4085 MB of memory but not enough to change assistant
    I am trying to change assistants in Office 2003 and when I click on Gallery to change the assistant I get message: There is not enough memory available to complete this operation..... According to task manager: Memory 1.13GB Physical Memory 4085 MB Cashed 3082 MB Free 30 I have Windows Vista and do not have anything else running except Microsoft Office 2003. I have the paper clip assistant running which was the one that was installed when I installed the program on my Vista machine. What is the problem, if I have 4085 MB with only 30 free What is all this cashed 3082 MB being used for. This is a terrible use of memory as far as I am concerned. I have not had a problem with not enough memory before. Tlhanks -- HP a6524p Intel Pentium dual core CPU speed 2.2 G Ram 4096 MB Microsoft Vista Premium Sp1 IE 6 Office 2003 Corp.

  • 4. Efficiently Managing Information Between Outlook, Excel, and Word
    Hello, I receive information from a person by e-mail in Outlook. In the e-mail, there can be three different pieces of information...A, B, and C. I have to search for each A, B, and C in Excel, and then copy the information I find in a table in Word and communicate this information in an attached word document in an e-mail to a different organization. The Word document also serves for me to track the flow of information, i.e. from whom it comes and to whom it goes. This process is very time consuming, so I am looking for a faster way to manage the information flow using this system (perhaps macros) or even better, to manage the information (like using another MS Office Product) or some kind of tracking tool. Are there any ways to improve the efficiency of my current system? Thanks

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.
