    I am trying to set this up on my Admin Installation Point. I must be doing something wrong because it is not updating the Office XP that I rolled out using Group Policy. Is there anyone out there with a good walk through or howto on this. I've found nothing I truly understand thus far. Thanks in advance.

    This is NOT Microsoft support. This IS a peer-to-peer newsgroup hosted by Microsoft. If you want Microsoft Office support then go to the appropriate web page.

  • 4. updating office
    I have scanned for need updates at the support website and three were identified: Outlook 2002 update: January 22, 2003; Excel 2002 update: October 16, 2002; Word 2002 update: October 16, 20002. All three came back "installation unsuccessful." I have reviewed troubleshooting and 1) there was no prompt for a disc; 2) I have disabled virus protection; 3) I have no special programs for the internet. What do I need to do to update these programs? Thank you.
  • 5. Office XP Reinstall to Custom Version
    I used the custom installation wizard to careat an install for the enterprise, but noticed the users that already had office XP did not get my customized version. How do I force the reinstall with setuppro.exe? Can I do it in the transform file or the setup.ini?

Active X files are stored in the folder Downloaded Program Files.  You may 
have a corrupt file in that folder that may be causing the problem

Suggest you go to Internet Options and on the General tab click on the 
Settings button. Then, click on the Objects button {bottom}. You will get a 
list of all files in that folder. Select all and delete all.

This action may not correct your problem, but will do no harm.  Active X are 
small files.  If you go to a web site that needs an Active X file not found 
in the expected folder, a new copy will be downloaded.

2.Send Files To FTP - Can't use Internet Transfer Control ActiveX

I'm new to vba and  I need to transfer files from my local drive to an ftp server. Everything I've read tells me I need MS Internet Transfer Control and it's really easy! However, when I try to reference it on my pc it states ""You Don't Have a License". I believe it's because I need a developer licence for Excel.

Is there anyway I can a copy of the control without developer edition as our company doesn't hold this edition
If I do get a copy, will it matter if the users who'll be running the program don't have developer editions
Is there anyway to do this without this control and not using batch scripts

Thanks in advance

3.Can't open excel file after saving and closing excel with activex

I'm using activex to write and save excel files in LabVIEW. My
application opens excel (not visible)writes a file, saves it, and then
closes both the file and excel.  When I try to open the file Excel
opens but the file is not displayed, I see the excel header and footer
but the file itself does not display.  My application is still running
at this point.  Any suggestions?

4.Why can't I paste an Array command from one file into another file

I readily admit to having only limited knowledge of Excel and would welcome
any advice on the following.

I have created a workbook which contains data covering a period of three
months. This file is named "Sept Oct and Nov"

One sheet called "breakdown" consists of a grid which relies on how the data
on the DATA sheet is interpreted. What I mean is that in the cells on the
grid I have an array command which  consists of the following formula


(It might look wrong above but it works properly on the Excel sheet)

As far as I understand it, the first instruction looks in row AD on the
sheet named "DATA" to try and find instances of the word "TEA".

It then looks to row G to look for "BOB" It then looks to row Z for an
indication that it "matters" (basically, on that DATA sheet I have entered a
"1" for when "YES" applies, otherwise the cell will be left blank)

I have similar formulae in other cells, looking for other things from the
"DATA" sheet.  This is probably very basic, but it works fine for me.

Having arrived at the method of doing this, I then tried to use the same
idea for data which relates to 3 other months (June, July and August).

I simply took my original workbook and deleted all data entries from the
sheet named "DATA" - I did not alter anything on the sheet named "BREAKDOWN"
I then used "SAVE AS" and gave the file the new name - June July and August

I had expected that when the data for June, July and August had been entered
into the right places on the new "DATA" sheet, the array from the
"BREAKDOWN" sheet would work in the same way as it did on my original sheet.
However, whereas the original version returned the totals in the correct
places, this attempt only manges to produce the result "#VALUE!"

All the data on the new (copied) version is of an identical type to that in
the original version so my (very limited) logic led me to expect it to work
satisfactorily but it does not.

What have i missed, or is it not possible to do this for some reason.

I am using Windows XP and Excel 2002

Many thanks

5.Why can't open excel files with MRU file links


Sometimes when I try open excel files with most recently used document
link, the file can't be opened. As I place the mouse pointer at
windows status bar, I just see the pointer plus a funnel but that
funnel never goes off. I need to reboot my windows ME OS to solve the
problem (sometimes I need to boot it several times to get problem

The problem will not happen if I launch excel first then open the
document from its file menu.

The described problem happens more frequently when I try to open excel
document just after my ME boots up.

I would like to ask is there anything abnormal with my OS or the
application ?
