You can save it and replace the name to something different and it will change it back, then if you would like to change it back to the original name you can and it will not be read only

How to open Book1.xls file.?


To open an Excel spreadsheet, you need a program that understands the .xls format. You can get the free Excel Viewer from Microsoft: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=10 . This is the latest version and will work with computers running Windows XP through Win7. There is a Mac OSX version available but I'm not sure of the URL. If you have an older OS, you can try searching for an older version of the Viewer.

Another option is to install any office suite that includes a spreadsheet program or just the spreadsheet program. Microsoft sells Office in several versions and you can buy Excel separately. There are several other spreadsheet and office suite software options that will also read Excel files. Open Office and LibreOffice are both free office suites which can read any Excel file. (www.openoffice.org and www.libreoffice.org ) Open Office and LibreOffice have versions that work under almost any OS.

I hope this helps.

Printer "out of memory"


The problem isn't your printer. The problem is with your Microsoft Works software. I know of six solutions that may work.

1) Download the latest service pack for .NET Framework 1.1. http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=A8F5654F-088E-40B2-BBDB-A83353618B38&displaylang=en

2) Go to this website and download the update. http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=65f5b806-e6a1-4f92-a656-e56eeda67e3d&displaylang=en

3) Uninstall printer completely (again). Unplug the printer from the computer. Reboot computer. Download the lastest driver from HP website. When installing the driver software, choose (type)a different directory,( ie. C:\MYHP\HP4180\ ). Plug Printer back to computer.

4) Go to this website. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/841220

5) Click START, click RUN, type SPOOL. Double click printer folder, clear (delete) any files in this folder.

6) Download the latest version of Microsoft Works 9.0.

Let me know if this works.
