How do you copy and paste one excel spreadsheet to another making sure the headers are lined up correctly.

right-click the sheet you want to copy, select "copy to", then either select the position within the current document, select annother document (needs to be open in the same excel instance) or select "new document". check the box "copy" to copy, leave unchecked to move.

Word docs open with a blank page.

Do your doc open correctly if you open Word first (open Word first, select FILE - OPEN and then the file, the DOC file opens)?

You can also open your word doc with IE or Firefox:
Launch IE, then at the File Menu, choose "Open" and browse to the Word File. You can also try Firefox the same way (or right click the doc and choose open with and find IE)

make sure your text wasn't accidently changed to white-then it would look like a blank page, see if you can highlight the text.

The files may have been saved as Macro enabled docs. Right click on one of the documents, click Save As. Choose Save As a normal doc. The next time you open it, it should open correctly.

This is a tough one

I have text documents saved, when i open it says microsoft program not responding, i can open it on note pad

Hi gvenkatmd

After typing the document, save it as a word document NOT as a text document. If you save it as a text document Microsoft Word will not open it automatically.
Hope this will work for you.

Is there a way to import an excel spreadsheet into quickbooks as expenses without the use of IIF?

You can save the file as a csv (comma seperated values) which will lose all the formatting in the excel sheet and save only the single worksheet. You should then be able to open this in quickbooks.

Saved document is now lost

I strongly suspect that the files have been saved to a directory that you were not intending to use, hence my suggestions to locate the files.

First option: Open the program (a blank document will do) and select File - Save As . . .

Look at the top of the dialog box and check where the files are being saved to. If the files are there and the location is not where you thought it should be - select the files you want and RIGHT Click these, select copy (for safety) and manouvre to the Folder where you want the documents to be located (use the drop down list at the top of the dialog box) - when you have opened the correct location, Right Click in the opened folder and select Paste.

You will still need to go into the Tools - Options menu in the program and find where files are automatically saved and change this to your desired location. This saves having to check the Save As . . dialog box everytime you want to save a new document.

Second option: Open Windows Explorer (not Internet Explorer) which can be found under the Start Button - All Programs - Accessories. In the Search box either type in the name of the document (if this is known) or just *.doc (or whatever the extension is eg *.xls). Note the "*" is a wild card symbol which means that it will match any and all letters or numbers in any combination and then followed by ".doc". This will find ALL documents that end in ".doc" not just the ones you are looking for!

The first search will only find files in the open Folder that match the query. I'm guessing that your files are not there. Now select Advanced Search and select C:\ to be searched. This will now find ALL files ending in ".doc" on the hard drive.

View the results as "Details". Locate your files (select "name" as the sort order to make this simpler). If you had a new document and just hit the Save button (or selected Save under File), then the files could be named as the first few words of the document - so look for this as well.

In the details section will be the Pathway to the files (eg C:\Samsung\Inprocessor\Drivers\Resume.doc). You can then go to this directory and using Edit - Cut (or Copy) remove the file from there, then open the directory that you want the file to be placed in (eg Documents) and again using Edit - Paste to put the file into that directory.

Good luck.

CSV file to Import correctly into Excel 2003


The key is to import the data and not open the file directly.

1. Open a Blank Workbook in Excel.
2. Data, Get External Data, Import Data. (Excel 2007 is Data, Get External Data, Data from Text)
3. Browse to your .csv file and Select "Import".
4. Import Wizard should appear.
5. Page 1 Select "Delimited"
6. Select the row which you want to start the import.
7. click "Next"
8. In the Delimiters, select "semicolon" and/or other delimiters you are using.
Note: The bottom half of the window will preview the way the data is to be imported.
9. click "Next"
10. highlight each column of your data in the window below. For each column you can specify "General", "Text", "Data", or "do not import column" using the radio buttons in the top left of the Wizard box. This is an optional step.
11. Click Finish.

I hope that helps. Please add a comment if it not clear.
