Saving Excel Icon to Desktop

I want to save an icon to my desktop for Excel, but first I want to remove
one of the toolbars checked in the program. I can find no way to send the
icon to the desktop after I do that. Is there any way around this problem?

Thanks in advance to whomever can can answer my question,
Candy

I need to save Excel files to a folder on the server that is Read/Write only,
not modify. This is not a problem with Word, but Excel creates a temp file
as soon as you type a file name in the save as box. This temp file has
nothing in it, but because it was created you cannot then save the original
file as the file does not have modify options. We cannot open the modify
option since we do not want saved files messed with. Does anyone know of a
work around other than saving to a desktop or other device and transferring
the file into the folder from there?


I recently bought a Buffalo network drive so I can access my files from both
my laptop and desktop. This works perfect for my Word documents and even my
Outlook PST. The problem is when I try to save an Excel (2003) file to the
network drive I get a message like

File xxx.Xls is possibly changed by an other user since you last saved it,
do you want to overwrite it or to save with another name.

(My Office version is not in English so this is my translation of the
message)

This only happens if I open an existing file, it happens even after I try to
save it immediately after opening. I can overwrite it so the file is not
locked (what would surprise me because there nobody else on the network)

It happens when saving files on both desktop or laptop.

The only way I found so bypass this message is to make every workbook shared
but that way I loos functionality.

I there a way to be able to save Excel files to a network drive without make
the Work book shared?

Thanks

PS. I'm using Win Xp Pro on Desktop and laptop

Gridlines print AFTER .docx saved - Excel linked to Word (MS Office 2007)

Scenario:
created Word 2007 document (.docx) with linked Excel object from Excel 2007 (.xlsx) via:
Excel: copy selected range [Excel GRIDLINES CHECKMARKED to print in VIEW tab];
Word: paste, paste special, paste link/Excel 2007 object).
After linking, saved file & printed.  Gridlines DID NOT print - which is what I wanted.
No other changes made; closed document; closed Word.

THE PROBLEM:
Later, opened Word, opened the same .docx document w/ linked Excel object;
have answered both YES and NO to '...update link...?' (same result below with both answers);
No changes made to document
Printed the document - GRIDLINES PRINT! (not the same as when initially created & not what I wanted).

QUESTION:
Why does it print fine initially (no gridlines) but after saving & closing Word then re-opening it PRINTS THE GRIDLINES?

I do not experience this problem if I'm using .doc and .xls files.  Any assistance would be appreciated.

can help me on this.

Hi

I am using Excel XP.

I have an Excel spreadsheet that contains a sales chart. This chart is
regularly updated and saved as HTML to be used in our Intranet Portal.

Although the chart is at the very top of the worksheet, when I save it as
HTML a space appears at the top of the file. I want to remove this blank
area, as space on the portal is at a premium and other content gets pushed
too far down the page.

Can the blank space be removed?

Thanks in advance for any guidance you can provide.

I want to transfer my Excel-icons from one computer to another. Some of them are custom buttons where I have added user-defined functions.

Is there any way I can do this? A list of icons with their function or purpose is OK as well.

I need to save Excel 2003 docs to a CSV with quotations around each item.
E.g., "Doe", "John", "123121234"

Whenever I save excel files to a cd or scandisk, they become "read only",
thus preventing me from working in them on another computer or on the
cd/scandisk.
