  • 2. Exporting Word Table (2003) to Excel spreadsheet
    Can someone offer assistance. Under Word 2000, you could save using Text with Layout Converter. I have a table built in Word 2003 - that I want to export to Excel 2003. No matter how I try to do this, instead of placing items in one cell it will take multiple lines and make them into separate cells. Ex - one cell has three sentences all separated by paragraph mark. When I export I get three lines / cell instead of the three lines appearing in one cell. Any suggestions?

I have a saved word document that requires a password to open.  I want to 
send as an attachment in Outlook.  However, the recipients are not able to 
open and get alot of "gibberish."

Provided you used the Save AS feature to password protect the file. 
After you have saved the password protected document, open a new email 
and Insert the file.

Yes, I did use Save As to protect the file, and I did open a new email & 
inserted the document as an attachment, but recipients cannot open the 
attachment and get pages of gibberish in the body of the email.

Hard to know what the recipients are doing, BUT they should Save the 
file to their hard drive first, and THEN open it with Word using the 
password you provided. This assumes they have a similar version of Word 
as you, and we don't have 97 trying to open 2007 or Open Office involved.

1.Password Protecting an Attachment sent via VBA

I have the following code (kindly by Ron de Bruin) which extracts an excel 
attactment for e-mail. My problem is that I wish to password protect all 
sheets in the attachment and not sure how to do i. I do notice a statement 
within the code of " .ChangeFileAccess xlReadOnly" which I would have 
thought would have made the attachment read-only, but thats not the case.

Any help I would be grateful

My company sends attachments (office files) to clients via

Is there anyway to have outlook tell the user that the 
attachment does not have a password? Sometimes they forget 
to put the password on the attachment...

Thanks, J.R.
