  • 2. How do I save a file instead of asking to overwrite each time?
    I am working on a network and each time I save a document I get a message stating that the file may have been changed by another user since I last saved it. In that case, what do you want to do 'Save a copy' or 'Overwrite changes'.
  • 3. Error Message when opening a linked document
    I have a user that opens a Word document that has links to an Excel spreadsheet. Normally she will open the Word doc then opens the spreadsheet, but now when the spreadsheet opens, she gets the following error: "A document with the name "0Xbook.xls" is already open. You cannot open two documents with the same name, even if the documents are in different folders. To open the second document, either close the document thats currently open, or rename one of the documents." She has been using this spreadsheet for a couple of years with no issues until the past couple of weeks. There have been no changes to her system at all. She is running office 2002.
  • 4. "Add to dictionary" grayed out in Office 2007
    I've just started using Office 2k7 and I've been having problems with the CUSTOM.DIC that I imported from my old Office 2000 installation. First of all, it didn't like that it was ANSI encoded, so I changed it to Unicode. Then, whenever I was doing a spellcheck in either Word or Outlook, the option to "Add To Dictionary" was grayed out. Some light googling revealed that this can happen if either a) the file is corrupt (it wasn't), or b) the file was read only (it wasn't) or, c) the folder containing the file was read only (it was). As the folder was C:\Users \MyUserName\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Uproof and therefore a System folder, I couldn't change the properties of the folder. When I moved CUSTOM.DIC to a new folder which was not read only, it all worked fine. So, is my only option to move the CUSTOM.DIC to a folder outside the Users tree, or is there some other way of setting the properties on the Uproof folder that I just don't get? Why would the application place the dictionary in a location that is by default read-only, thus clobbering the utility? Thanks Edward

File Name Too Long For Recycle Bin - Cannot Delete

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.
