comment Insufficient rights to copy via Windows Explorer but can copy via DOS
I downloaded a Windows Explorer like program, Xyplorer, and was able to copy files into folders that Windows Explorer required Admin credentials to be entered before it would allow it. So, if this is some sort of corporate policy in place, it isn't a very secure one.

comment Insufficient rights to copy via Windows Explorer but can copy via DOS
Policy certainly is preventing me from performing the copy but I am puzzled why it's only smart enough to stop me from using Windows Explorer. I am trying to figure out if I should try installing other Windows Explorer alternatives to see if they are also exempt but I am trying to avoid unnecessary installs.Strange again, I only have rights to install, not to uninstall. I cannot tell you what "Elevated Rights" comprises of because I dont know where it is defined and I seriously doubt that I have visibility to this sort of configuration/

I cannot provide the Admin password because I am not intentionally provided such info.

comment User specific folder rights vs group membership rights
That could also mean that the lower of the two rights are applied. For example, if the group was given read access but the individual write access, what happens?

That is my also admittedly limited and not rigorously tested experience. Thanks!

comment Read Only flag. A property of the folder, too? (not just file objects?)
@Harry: I agree with your last comment. Even the ATTRIB cmd, not just the GUI, fails to display the value of the folder RO flag. No issues with the Hidden flag.

comment How to determine if a Service account has login as batch rights to a server
I want to check to see if Service Acct "A" has Logon As Batch rights on Server "B". Do I have to run this SysInternals command on the server "B" to determine this? I presume so.

comment Entering a null value from the keyboard or using menus
CSV fields have the concept of NULL if field delimiters are used and Excel handles CSV files, though poorly. However, the only way that I know to get a null value into the file is using Notepad.

comment Looking for an explanation of this VLOOKUP function
Ah. I didn't recognize $C$4 as a reference to the C4 column. I expected it to be written simply as C4. Is this an alternate syntax?

comment Why is Excel removing leading leading zeros when displaying CSV data?
Yeah, I was already looking for a CSV editor. I saw CSVEd. My initial impression is that it looks like a confusing ametuerish interface. I think "Tabular Text Editor" looks better. Thanks for your help.

comment Why is Excel removing leading leading zeros when displaying CSV data?
Here's a complication: After importing it as you describe, I then want the ability to modify the file and to save it back as CSV. It presents me with a convoluted ugly dialog box (c'mon microsoft-design a custom dialog form for this instead of using the MessageBox Windows feature!). I choice the option to "keep it in the same format". When I do so, it defaults to a tab separated format. To ensure that the txt file is saved with a comma separator, you have to change the file name extension back to "csv." Is this ugly of what? After 10 versions of Excel we have this?

My issue was that my file had a csv extension and the Import dialog never comes up. when I renamed the file to have a text extension, I was all set and knew where to go. ty.

comment Why is Excel removing leading leading zeros when displaying CSV data?
Robert was not my aunt. :-) I thought I had success doing that before, but it didn't work. Try it. What confused me is why formating the cell as text does not result in the value "02" being dispkayed with a leading 0 left justified.

comment Giving a printer a more meaningful name
Looks like it may be a permissions issue: microsoft.com/resources/documentation/windows/xp/all/proddocs/…. Note though that I only want to change it for me, not for everyone.
