Note to all SO beginner:

Please read (and embrace!) Jon Skeet's helpful hints on how to write a good question (or at least his short version here ) - one that has a chance that someone can answer it.


A Pascal/Delphi programmer and database freak at heart, I work as a C# developer on line-of-business applications (mostly ASP.NET).

I'm interested mostly in distributed systems (WCF), database (design and SQL), and Active Directory.


I'm an MCPD .NET 4 Web Developer, MCPD .NET 4 Windows Developer, MCPD Enterprise Application Developer (.NET 3.5), and MCTS for WCF, ADO.NET, Winforms and ASP.NET.

Attempt #2 - solved it! The workbook was shared, for some weird reason. Once I've removed the sharing, I was able to uncheck that "Protect Structure and Windows" option and that solved it - thanks so much !!

Thanks - I can see that that option "Protect Structure and Windows" is checked - but it's grayed out, I can't uncheck it..... any ideas??

Unfortunately, that "workbook protection" link refers to Excel 2003, and in Excel 2007, there's no "Tools" / "Protection" menu :-(

@CHris Thompson: yes, the MDI window is fixed, in position and size, and I can't seem to get it to resize or move anymore....

comment Downloaded chm is blocked, is there a solution?
no, it's still the same with Firefox - download a CHM with it and it's also tagged an "unsafe" and won't display until you manually unblock it...

comment What's the Minimum System Spec Recommended For Developer Laptop
PLus I'd strongly recommend a 7200rpm harddisk - makes a huge difference over 5400 or 4500rpm disks!

comment Archive Outlook mail items into SQL Server
Thanks for sharing - I'm still hoping to find a full-fledged solution. I'm amazed there doesn't seem to be anything out there - I would imagine a lot of people are faced with similar situations.

comment SQL Server 2005, Huge LDF file
@Scott: you can restore back to that *.bak file you have - no problem. You just won't be able to recover anything that happen since then (that would be in the transaction logs that you purge away)
