Is there policy setting to prevent saving file without extension?

I previously posted related question in Office Developer Add-in group...
....but I did not get any response, so I have reframed a more general 
question here.

In one particular environment (Terminal Services session on MS windows 
server 2003 standard edition SP2 with Office Professional Plus 2007 SP2), 
when I try to save a file (programmatically) withOUT .docx extension, the 
file is automatically saved with the extension.  (The file I opened had a 
name withOUT an extension.)  I have run this code in many environments 
before, including others that seem to be set up like this one, and the file 
saved successfully without the extension.  One additional note: when I do 
SaveAs, Office always adds the extension, no matter what environment I run in.

Could this be the result of a policy setting?  (Disclaimer - I know almost 
nothing about policy settings.) I have looked through the ADM template 
spreadsheet but I did not see anything that quite matched this situation.

Version: 2008 Operating System: Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) Processor: intel Hello Everyone, For some reason I'm having users send files that don't have file extensions. This is a big problem, as I know Mac OS X embeds file type into the actual file, windows does not and none of our clients can read these files because it doesn't have a file extension! Is there anyway I can make it so all Office applications save the filename+filext? Please help!!!

Non-standard extensions; Save to pre-2007 format
1 replies , 7/6/2007, 9:36:01 PM
I am working on a Word Add-in that uses different extensions than the ususal ..doc/docx. I can save a document for earlier versions of Word by providing a ..doc file extension. The question is, is there a way to do that using a different extension? (In my case they are .cbd/.cbdx). Document.SaveAs does not seem to have a parameter that affects this (wdSaveFormat apparently does not address this). Is the format totally controlled by .doc/.docx extensions with no other way to specify what is wanted? I also need to go the reverse direction using the Office Compatibility Pack from Word 2003. thanks in advance for any insights you can give here.

Query Analyzer Extension

Hello, I need to develop a tool for checking db schema properties and i just want to know wether is possible or not to add to SQL Query Analyzer an option in some contextual menu for fireing my app, that is, i want to be able to navigate through the SQL Server's tree until the tables/views list and then doing a right click over one of them selecting my app as just another option as for example the Open, Delete o Edit options. I have been searching a lot but i just find the customization menu at which you can add an external tool to the SQL Query Analyzer environment but without any kind of integration.

COUNTIF extension?
6 replies , 10/28/2005, 4:10:54 PM
Data array is 720 cells (90*6) containing integers between 1 and 49, is up to 90 user selections of 6 different numbers in each row. COUNTIF (repeated 49 times) returns the count of each of the 49 numbers, into a report - no problems. I'd now like to "cream off" the top 2 "counts", report the actual numbers, and the number of times selected Also, "cream off" the lowest counts, ditto. there could be more than one number with an equal count, in both instances. EXAMPLE the numbers "5" and "34" selected 17 times the number "13" selected 15 times (in practice, could be a dozen or so) and The number " 35" selected 3 times The number "17" selected 4 times Is this possible, if so, how?

I had a serious problem with my computer, and it also killed my backup drive. Long story, and not necessary here. At any rate, I had some of my files recovered, and I'm stumped about the extension on them. The recovered files no longer have their original titles, of course, so I have to open each one to figure out what it is. Some of the ones that were recovered and placed into folders for Office docs have the obvious ..doc, .ppt and .xls extensions, but a lot have an extension ".ole" that I've never seen before. Can anyone tell me what opens these? Thanks! -- Sandy sfoster 1 (at) earthlink (dot) net (remove/change the obvious)

Help with Access Developer Extensions Package Wizard
0 replies , 12/14/2005, 10:42:25 PM
Don't know if this is the right place to post this but I hope someone knows the answer. I am having problems using the package wizard. I can run theough the first couple of steps on the package wizard, but when it asks for a language to cache, it fails to install the necessary files. I have found the resolution on the MS KB site about copying the files to the HDD, and the renaming the exe file to SETUP.EXE, but whenever I select this file to cache, I get the following message:- 'C:\Source\SETUP.EXE' could not be copied to 'C:\Documents and Settingsusername\Application Data\Microsoft\Access\ADE11\Cache\1033\SETUP.EXE'. Verify that the source file exists, that you have write permissions on the destination folder. etc I don't think it is permissions, as it does copy the msi and cab file to that particular folder, it's just the SETUP.EXE file that it doesn't copy over. Has anyone experienced this before when using the Package Wizard?

File Extensions

Using Office 2003 with Windows XP. Recently had a server (small office) rebuilt, so all of our settings were lost. When saving any document now, in the "save" or "save as" box I have to type the title of the document and the extension, such as .doc, .pub, etc. in the "file name" box. I did not have to do that before. And now if I don't, the document can't be reopened. Any suggestions on how to change it back to just the title of the document in the file name box, and maintaining the .doc, .pub in the "save as type" box. As always, thank you for any help!

In the lower section of the File Types tab is Details for 'MDB' extension. Opens with Microsoft Office Access. You have customized files with extension 'MDB'. To restore these files to their default type (Microsoft Office Access Application), click Restore. Why do I have a restore button instead of an Advanced button like I have for XLS and DOC files? What files would be customized and what happens if I click restore?

Opening file with changing monthly date extension
3 replies , 6/26/2006, 8:37:02 PM
Each day, a new file is created and named with a date extension. I would like my macro to open the last day's file from the previous month (20060531_Volume). My problem is that, every month, this would change (due to the date extension) and that every month the location of the file I want to open changes as our system creates a new folder for each month as the month is finished. This would mean 20060430_Volume would be in the 200604 Folder, 20060531_Volume would be in the 200605 Folder and so on. I would like the macro to work so that every month it would open the correct file without me changing anything in the macro. Is this possible? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

HTC HCR-160 Deluxe Mobile Clamp Rack with Extensions
0 replies , 5/22/2009, 11:16:34 AM
Price:$82.99 Image: Best deal: Not very well built. We loaded it up with Bessy clamps and the casters almost broke. Being commited to it I purchsed a better set of 4 casters MUCH better! Not really a quality built unit if I could have seen before buying I would have walked away. To bad it is a great idea and works well for the smaller shop (less bulky and heavy than a shop built wood frame dolly). Overall I was happy with the product, although I purchased 2 racks and both were missing parts. One was missing hardware, the other was missing 2 casters, 3 rods, and 4 hairpin clips. I called HTC and they sent them out right away. Besides what was missing, I was very happy with this product. Amazon says this item ships in 24 hours. I ordered mine Aug 16, it was supposedly shipped on the 22nd, with delivery to be on the 25th. This is the 29th and neither I nor Amazon have any idea where my order is. Amazon has started using a shipper called "Airborne Home". Never heard of them. This is the fourth order I have made that has been shipped via Airborne Home......all of them have been screwed up. One took 2 weeks after shipment to show up. They have no tracking, and Amazon won't let you cancel after the item is shipped. So you just wait and hope. I started using BestBuy and Barnes and Noble a few months ago.......they operate the way Amazon did five years ago; great prices and service. They and others will get my future business.

Office 2008 extension

Does anyone know if the new Office 2008 will change their extension to add the "x" at the end of every type of file (i.e. .doc becomes .docx and .xls becomes .xlsx) like they did with their new Microsoft Office Enterprise 2007 for PC's?

I've tried this on my PCs. On NT in Windows Explorer you can rename a word file (no extension visible) no problem. Stays as Word. Can do this in Word also with the File Open dialogue box. In XP in Windows Explorer you can rename a word file (no extension visible) no problem. Stays as Word. CanNOT do this in Word with the File Open dialogue box. The warning "If you change a file name extension, the file may become unusable. Are you sure that want to change it?" is prompted. Any clues how to make XP behave as our NT machines ? Juliet

I also want to install the neccesary dll's on our web server. On the MS Office cd there is a file called SetupSE.exe or InstallSE.exe (I don't remember which). I guess that SE meens Server Extensions. Is this the file to use if I want to install the OWC components on the server? TIA PO
