Re: .vsd to .html

Unfortunately, no, you can't specify that you'd like to use a click to show
the properties rather than the mouse over. You can modify the files so that
it acts the way you want, but there's no way to specify that within Visio.

For the 2nd question, I don't believe the html output will automatically
resize the left frame for you if the properties extend past the current

You might check out the beta for Visio 2003

significant enhancements in the Save as Web Page output.

html opening
1 replies , 1/8/2004, 6:27:32 PM
I open excel then try to open a csv file with a txt extension excel displays "html opening" in the bottom of excel then excel locks. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. The reason I use the txt extension is so when I open the text file I get the import wizard that allows me to chnage the filed data types. IF i use a csv extension excel auto imports and messes up the data in my fields.

Cannot view HTML messages
5 replies , 5/8/2006, 12:30:02 PM
I have 3 Mac clients using OS X and Office 2004 that have all suddenly started experiencing the same problem. When opening HTML format messages using Entourage, the body of the message appears to be blank. If they open the same messages using Outlook or Outlook Web Access, the messages appear normally. We have checked the 'display complex HTML' settings, and they are turned on. The Office Update has been run on the client side, and the mail server (Exchange 2003 SP2) is fully patched. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

VS 2005 Validation problem with HTML 4.01

Hello, I'm attempting to create a simple HTML signature in Entourage 2008.

Issues w "send complex html"
0 replies , 8/7/2005, 12:51:39 PM
Entourage 11.1.0 (040913), OS 10.3.9 I've been using "Send complex html" for sending out a html newsletter for over a year. I send every mail to one of my own accounts to "confirm" each time. No problems at all. Two days ago, I didn't receive the mail. And after checking every possible way, it seems as if the script causes mails to be sent or not sent randomly - or if this depends on the html file: E.g. I have a file name "A" which sends perfectly. When I change the code in the body of the html file (which validates, etc) adding or deleting just a tiny little tag or a text sentence and save it as "B", the file sends but never ends up in the receiving account. Every other file, message or whatever sends and is being received by the very same two accounts. Additional info: I have rebuild the MS database I have fixed permissions I have downloaded and installed latest version of the script (created 12 Feb 2005) It's been working just fine for over a year and I have NOT done anything to Entourage or computer the past days that could have changed this. The issue remains: When I send from mail account A to account B, I can send anything without problems, even complex html mails I did a couple of days ago. But when I change the tiniest thing in that html mail, the file sends (says Entourage) but never arrives. This is one of the most bizarre problems I have encountered. What on earth is going on? TIA Jonny

Save Excel book as Html Page Using Macro

Ive created a button and that works fine. Is there a way I can get tricky with the name of the file it creates. Basically I would like the file name to contain a number that increments every time the macro is pressed. Id also like it to contain the date, and the company name which is from cell in the spreadsheet. eg. QuoteNo_1000_Company Name(Cell D10)_09022006.xls QuoteNo_1001_Company Name(Cell D10)_09022006.xls I guess i need to store the incrementing number somewhere in a worksheet of its own so it knows the number to call. Any help with the macro appreciated.

Creating HTML emails
1 replies , 7/18/2003, 4:09:52 PM
It seems this topic has come up before but I can never find an answer. How do I create HTML emails in Entourage? After I create the .html file and upload it to my server, instructions for Outlook say to "create mail - insert - text from file" and select the .html file I created. (Check out for full instructions.) I can't find comparable selections in Entourage. I've read that there are scripts you can run to accomplish this but do you really need a script to do what should only take a few mouse clicks? Any help is appreciated.

This request involves Outlook 2003 and Excel 2003. I send "cut & pasted" Excel spreadsheet data to various mail recipients via HTML messages. Since I run multiple computers on my network, I also have an add-in app that BCCs all my messages back to me. In order to reduce the size of my PST file, I prefer to go back into those messages and delete the actual data, but insert a link to the specific "sheet" in my Excel workbook. I've spent the better part of a day searching the web for details on creating a link for Excel to open to the particular worksheet. I've found numerous provisions for creating the link, but I can't for the life of me get any to work. I'm creating a "file hyperlink" via the "Insert/Hyperlink" menu in the Outlook message, but the best I can do is open the workbook - all references to the worksheet won't work. Apparently, the workbook will open to the last accessed worksheet. Since I add worksheets monthly, there is no standard in that function - I need the link to specify and access a particular sheet. The file resides at the following address: F:\My Docs\Act St\MDO chgs.xls Additionally, I've "named" the first line of the spreadsheet by the month, i.e. Mar_chgs, including the underscore as Excel requires. Including that "name" in the path doesn't force the sheet to open. I've tried the '#' sign and single quotations at various points, to no avail. Based on my file data, would someone provide me with the actual link address to force Excel to open to the specific page? I would greatly appreciate it!! Regards, Pamela

Stripping of HTML
1 replies , 3/15/2006, 12:06:16 AM
Sorry if this is a duplicate (or triplicate, etc.), but I searched for about a half-hour using every means I had and couldn't find an answer. One of my co-workers using Microsoft OE for Windows is sending me emails that are HTML formatted. When I receive them, they are still HTML, sort-of. Mostly, they're garbled messes. Anchor tags are gone, replaced by URLs in > brackets. Is there a setting in Entourage that can fix this? Is the problem even on my end? I would much appreciate an answer, even if it's just a link to some previous thread.
