Problem put my excel 2007 email database to outlook 2003

Q: Problem put my excel 2007 email database to outlook 2003

Please can someone help me.I manage a band and we have a database of 3,000 contacts. The headings are name,location,email, website. I wanted to put all this into my contacts sheet so that rather than getting a mailing list program I'll just use outlook and distribution lists. I was going to set up different address books for each location. i.e USA.

A box saying you have not named the ranges keeps coming up. Honestly i dont have a clue and could really do with a step by step, baring in mind i know nothing.

Problem is that it wont import from Excel into Outlook. Im getting desperate now their album is out in February and i have not used the direct mailing yet.

I cant find a step by step idiots guide to doing this anywhere.

Can someone help there is a free album in it if you can lol

Please help.

I need to send an email notification(To Outlook Inbox) to specific users that, the excel/Access database has been updated and saved by an user with his name.

This notification should be sent everyday at a specific time.

Can anybody help me out in achieving this using macros or by any means.?

Thanks in advance!!!


A:Send email notification from Excel/Access Database to Outlook

Have you looked at the "sendObject" method?

DoCmd.SendObject , , , "YourEMAIL", , , "TEST"

Leave the Object name /format blank and you can send without attachement, you can do with a macro or VBA....this is from Access only, if you need Excel let me know, it is different.

Not clear on how you want to trigger, because essentially the UPDATE, should be the trigger, but you mention same time everyday...that may not be relevant because what ever action does the update maybe able to trigger the send.

I also use this to get around Outlook security...

I just recently upgraded my Outlook from 2003 to 2007 and although some of the icons and things are flashier, I am having loads of trouble trying to figure out how to do a mailmerge. Currently, I have all of my email addresses in an Excel 2003 file under two columns "Name" and "Email".

Can anyone help me figure out how to do a mail merge from Excel to Outlook 2007? I basically want to have an existing message where it will insert the "name" into the message and send it to the "email" listed in Excel. I could do it no problem in the old version.

I know that 07 Word saves files in a .docx file that is not usable by the 97-03 Word and same goes for PowerPoint and Excell. My question is does this occur with Outlook 2007 also? I have a friend who said that he can't read my Outlook 2007 email to him (he uses the older version of outlook). Is there a way to change it so that I can send 2007 Outlook emails to people with the 97-03 versions?

I just got Outlook 2007 but only have Word 2003. I want to set Word as my email editor. I've looked at all the Outlook Options and checked the Microsoft website but can't find how to set Word as the editor. If there is a way, please let me know.

The reason I want Word as the editor is I send a lot of screen snapshots and I used to be able to crop them in Word editor. I can't find a crop option in Outlook 2007. If there is a way to crop screenshots in Outlook editor then I don't need Word.

I have just been upgraded to Excel 2007. I find that some of the macros that were recorded in Excel 2003 no longer work in Excel 2007. We use the Analysis Toolpak VBA add-in and I have added this in to 2007 ok, but when running a macro I get a run time 1004 error ATPVBAEN.XLA cannot be found. After some searching it would appear that some of these functions have been renamed in 2007 e.g. it is now a .XLAM file rather than .XLA which is why the macro code can't find it. I guess I could manually edit all the macros and change the fucntion names but there are other colleagues in my team that are still using 2003, so I don't want to break things for them. Is there any solution to this? Thanks

Thanks for taking a look at my issue. I new to the boards but not new to the IT industry.

I have a user running Windows XP on a desktop and until recently he had Office 2003 loaded. I've done an email (exchange) upgrade migration that required me to upgrade his 2003 to 2007. I uninstalled 2003 completely and then loaded 2007 fresh. In the new 2007 Excel, when I open a document created in 2003 (a .xls) everything looks great except for a few subtle differences that I can deal with. The problem is when I try to print or even do a print preview, some of the cells in the workbook shift to a different location further down the page. I have loaded the Office file converter program and saved the .xls to a .xlsx with no change. I am able to open the same file on my Win7/Excel 2007 desktop and it previews and prints as it should.

Any ideas?

A:Building 2007 Excel database

welcome to the board.

All the message says is that the expected value in one of the fields is not what the formula can work with, it's either an empty field where no 0 values or null values are allowed or whatever.

With this information and no access to the source data it's like looking for a needle in a pitch dark room with no flashlight.

What I mean to say is I think insert a new (empty) worksheet and then put each value in a different cell and see what you get in return:


A1 ='Core Database'!$H$2:$H$8400=$B4
A2 ='Core Database'!$M$2:$M$8400=$C4


Then you can build the formula based on A1, A2 , etc and see what happens with which one.

Step-by-step will get a longer way than running when you keep tripping (wow that's philosophical )

I mean, just try this, I'm sure the problem is quite simple since it worked before.

Good hunting.

I posted a message yesterday and that issue was more or less solved, but today I've discovered a new issue. I had office 2007 and while I liked some of the new features, I found it in general to be way to slow, so I downgraded to 2003. I've had a number of issues (I think many of which had to do with dll file versions. I've worked through most of the issues and nearly everything seems to be functioning as it should... EXCEPT.... When I try to hit "reply to all" in Outlook, I get the following error:

The messaging interface has returned an unknown error. If the problem persists, restart outlook.

Needless to say, restarting outlook does not help. It was suggested that I type Regsvr32.exe %Windir%\System32\Ole32.dll
in the command line. That didn't help either.

Any thoughts anyone has would be greatly appreciated!

A:Downgrading Office 2007 to 2003 - Outlook problem

Another user on another forum had the same exact problem and managed to solve it like this (Other users tried this method and it worked for them too):
07.03.2008 at 07:31AM PDT, ID: 21925812
This is not the only solution to this issue. I had the same exact issue. I was using office 2007 and downgraded to 2003 and my reply to all button was not working at all. With some trial and error and some searching on the internet I found this solution and it worked very well without having to completely rebuild and reimage the computer, which was not an acceptable solution for the time that it would have taken to do that.

The solution that worked for me was this:

First make sure outlook is closed. Because you are using an exchange server it should be no problem to delete your .ost file. Go ahead and delete that as well. Then go into your control panel and click on the Mail icon. When the profile box comes up go ahead and remove your email profile. I didn't have to reboot but you may want to go ahead and do that. When the computer gets back into windows then reopen outlook and it will ask you to rebuild your profile. Go through the profile rebuild and select the cached mode in your outlook to rebuild your .ost.

That fixed the issue for me and now my outlook is working as it should. I would say try this before reimaging your entire machine, but definitely try this first.

A:Outlook 2003 email problem

Welcome to Bleeping Computer, jscatam1128.

Here is the solution to your issue:

Turn off your computer.
Disconnect your PC from the cable modem. Now launch Outlook. Outlook will try to do a send/receive cycle, but it will fail pretty quickly. Now, you can open the outbox and delete the stuck message. Close Outlook, turn your computer off again, reconnect the PC, boot up, and you should be back in business.

A:Solved: Some Excel 2003 & Excel 2007 applications won't open on Windows Vista

Hi there,

If I said I was confused that'd be an understatement I think. You cannot open executable files (*.exe) with Excel. Recognized file types are things like .xls, .xla, (for 2007) .xlsx, .xlsb, .xlsm, etc. I don't know what your exe file is and I'm not sure I wanna know, but it certainly doesn't open in Excel. What is it exactly? If you don't know I wouldn't open it. Or if someone told you to open it with Excel then it's probably a virus. Unless I'm missing something here.

With the file in question which won't open, assuming it's not this strange and unknown exe file you're talking about, sounds like the file may have been corrupted. Does it open on any other machine? And if you uninstall Excel 2003, did you re-install 2007? It seems strange. I would try cleaning out your application and reinstalling 2007 fresh. You can't install 2003, then 2007, then take off 2003 and put it back on, you're gonna get things screwed up. I bet your registry doesn't know which way to turn here. Some good info on it can be found here...

Also, I would highly recommend you completely uninstall all versions, and I'm talking a deep cleaning, then reinstall. For that deep cleaning, take a look at this article (which I'd highly recommend you do) and then reinstall...

A:Outlook 2003 Address Book/new Email Problem

Hello to all,

I have resolved my issue with address book. It appears that my address book was opening up off screen on the right hand side. I am not sure what had changed in regards to why it had opened off screen or why it now has restored to the middle of the screen. The only thing that I had done recently was to send an email to a friend and typed in the email address then clicked send. After that when I tried to create a new email and select the address book it would open the window in view.

Basically I'm a moron but had to post the resolution to my problem anyways.

I'm not sure if it because the files are 2003 or not? When I try to open them an error message appears stating, "...the file you are trying to open is in a different format than specified by the file extension. Verify file is not corrupted and is from a trusted source..." These are my files. The interesting thing is that if I try to open the same file that I have saved within the last year (before I got 2007) then I can do it? That is, I have a cache folder of files that I go get to do calculations then save in a new job folder. The ones in the new job folder will open (also 2003), but the ones in the original cache will not? I would truly appreciate any suggestions. Thank you.

I purchased Excel 2007 to take advantage of the larger number of rows and columns. My SS applications are very large and I run out of columns. But after trying my Excel 2003 in the new 2007 software, I find that 2007 runs 10-20 times slower, making it completely unusable. Googling the problem shows it's a widespread issue. MS help desk essentially no help. Any suggestions?

A:Excel 2007 Runs MUCH Slower than Excel 2003

The biggest thing that slows Excel 2007 is also what you wanted it for - the greater number of cells. If your formulas have cell references like A:A or $1:$1, then that is a lot more cell references for it to process.
Read this and maybe you will get some ideas on how to make your files process faster.

Hi can anybody tell me hoe to copy macros from excel 2003 to excel 2007?
The excel 2003 is running under windows xp and the 2007 under windows vista.
(The two versions of excel are installed at differnt computers)

A:Copy Macros From Excel 2003 To Excel 2007

I don't know Excel 2007 nor Vista.
But the usual way to copy macros brute force would be to open the VBA toolbar, get into the Modules, select each, and Export one by one. Then import into 2007 modules if Excel 2007 VBA permits that.
If export/import doesn't work, you can always copy out the entire text into Notepad text files, and copy/paste from the Notepad into your 2007 Excel.
If the VBA language or object model has changed between 2000 or 2003 and 2007, then some tweaking might be in order, but I suspect they left it alone, and the error messages, if any, might suggest what to fix.

Since these are different computers, either network them and share some common directory, or use USB flash drive for transfers of the, say, Notepad files.

Export is good, because it names the modules. They get saved someplace in your local settings. Notepad will not name, and doesn't matter really.

Why does the second line of the code shown below produce an error in Excel 2007 and not in Excel 2003? The error is:
Run Time Error ‘1004’, Unable to set the Text Property of the Characters class

Selection.Characters.Text = "Prepare Job Summary" & Chr(10) & "for " & CurrentJob

CurrentJob is defined as: Public CurrentJob As String

In this case it equals: RockMont Rev 7-9-04

No problem at all in Excel 2003 and earlier. If CurrentJob is something shorter (e.g. MyFile), there is no error. I don't think the spaces are a problem either because I still got the error after adding Chr(34) before and after CurrentJob in my code. Any ideas? Thank you.

A:Error in Excel 2007 but not in Excel 2003

Hello, welcome to the board!

The text is too long. Use an ActiveX control instead of a Forms control. Then you can use similar code...
Public Const strCurrentJob As String = "RockMont Rev 7-9-04"
Dim btn As CommandButton

Sub FooTest()
Set btn = Sheet1.CommandButton1
btn.Caption = "Prepare Job Summary" & Chr(10) & "for " & strCurrentJob

A:Issues importing large contact list in Excel 2007 to Outlook 2007

Hi hbsurfer

Try going about it backwards.
Create one Contact in Outlook 2007, then Export that one Contact to a .csv file.
Then you will be able to see the format Outlook 2007 is using and reconfigure your headers in the Excel spreadsheet.
When all headers match, you should be able to Import it. Or copy the excel information to the one contact .csv file and Import that.

Let us know if that works for you or not.

It happens in both versions when saving a file created with the other version and it will occur for almost all files. Basically it's because the data within the file gets saved twice. Once in the original format in which it was saved, and then again in the format you are saving it to.

Everything copied over, but I could not see the manual folders at first until I double clicked the Inbox folder in the side panel and then they spilled out. I would look for them in that panel and double click anything there starting with Inbox, Sent etc. Also try doing a search for any subject or address of an email you may have saved.

When copying over the pst file I think everything is copied. Appears you did not just copy contacts for example, but the complete pst file. I think the folders are there as Sub Folders, just hidden within one of the main folders such as Inbox.

Hi everyone,

At work we have outlook 2003 and I cannot upgrade that computer, at home I have recently upgraded to outlook 2007 but it left me with a little problem.

I use tasks to delegate jobs out to my team and I have it set up so categories are in fact their names. I used to send task requests with the name of the employee in the category section and when it arrived in the work inbox someone would accept the task and it would immediately go into that particular employees task category.

Now I have 2007 Outlook and although I have set categories up as they used to be (employee names) the task request gets accepted (at work) and instead of going under the employee name it goes into it's own category with no specific category.

Can anyone tell me (short of going back to outlook 2003) how to solve this issue?

The problem was that the address was changed somewhere. His name is spelled with a j but somewhere along the line, it was changed to a k and so there was no such person and therefore was returned to me.

What could have happened? This is a new one on me.

Welcome to board.

I'm guessing "check macro security settings" at the other board didn't help.

There are various flavours of UDF for this; tried this one?

Function SumByColor(InputRange As Range, ColorRange As Range) As Double
' returns the sum of each cell in the range InputRange that has the same
' background color as the cell in ColorRange
' example: =SumByColor($A$1:$A$20,B1)
' range A1:A20 is the range you want to sum
' range B1 is a cell with the background color you want to sum
Dim cl As Range, TempSum As Double, ColorIndex As Integer
' Application.Volatile ' this is optional
ColorIndex = ColorRange.Cells(1, 1).Interior.ColorIndex
TempSum = 0
On Error Resume Next ' ignore cells without values
For Each cl In InputRange.Cells
If cl.Interior.ColorIndex = ColorIndex Then
TempSum = TempSum + cl.Value
End If
Next cl
On Error GoTo 0
Set cl = Nothing
SumByColor = TempSum
End Function

For earlier versions of Office products, MSFT published a number of KB articles that describe the issue of having more than 1 version of Office in OS, andthey did list some significant potential problems.

Some of the articles were KB 292491, 218081, 828956 and 290576.

In any case, you would really have to uninstall 2007 before installing 2003.

I am seeing an issue with the compatibility pack for 2007. If an Excel 2003 spreadsheet is opened then try to open a second file that needs to be converted, the second file never gets converted. All files in Excel 2003 must be closed in order for a 2007 file to be converted. Is there a way around this?

A:Excel 2010~2003 to 2007 debacle

First of all, welcome to BC !
Try coming at your problem from a different direction. Go into Windows Explorer and pick on one of your Excel 2003 files - any one will do. In Windows Explorer RIGHT click on the name of this poor innocent file. In the menu that will open, click on 'Open with...', this will bring up the 'Open with' dialogue box.
In the centre of the box you will see an Excel icon. Do NOT click on this, instead click on 'Browse' at the bottom right hand side, and browse to excel.exe (Office 2003). The path is :- C:\Program files (or Program files(x86) if 64 bit systems)\MS Office\Office 11.
Office 2003 is listed as OFFICE 11. Here you will find an excel.exe file with the familiar icon beside it. Click on this to select it, then put a tick in the box on the other side of the 'Open with' dialogue box, the one that says 'Always use this to open files of this type'. You have just changed the attribute of all the Excel files in your system, and they should now all open in Excel 2003.
You are correct, you need the 2007 compatibility pack to open 2007 and later files in 2003, and there will be a pause of a few seconds while the software translates from .xlsx to .xls, but it always works for me.

Hi folks!
Weird issue here. WHen I have an Excel spreadsheet open at the same time as Outlook, I try to copy and paste a portion of the spreadsheet to a new Outlook message. But as soon as I click on "New Mail Message"....Outlook stays open, but Excel closes immediately and what I copied to the clipboard isn't there any more.
I tried this on a second computer and it seems to work fine.
Any ideas on why this is happening on this one computer?

Any clue where else to look for it so I can try to repair it.

Is an Outlook 2003 data file compatible with Outlook 2007? I hope to be able to copy the details of my Outlook 2003 email accounts, emails, contacts etc into an Outlook 2007 installation on another machine. Can I simply copy the data file over to the Outlook 2007 installation and select it as the data file to use in Outlook 2007?

Will this process copy the passwords and settings stored in my Outlook 2003 installation? Or, will I have to reconfigure the email accounts and passwords again in Outlook 2007?

Any advice most appreciated.

Any ideas?

A:Outlook 2003 errors after Removing Outlook 2007

Found the answer.
had the answer, all you need to do is so a search for 'mapisvc.inf' on your C: drive. It will find 2 files, one in C:\Windows\System32, one in C:\Program Files\Common Files\System\MSMAPI\1033

I renamed both of them to mapiscv_old.inf - call it what you like, delete it if you are feeling game. Then run Outlook 2003, it will configure and put the file back there for you, and allow you to setup your account.

Intermittently, Outlook 2007 will crash while sending an email and, needless to say, the email is not sent. However I wanted to know if there is a temp or backup copy of that mail anywhere. I've looked in drafts and it's not there.

I've sometimes typed a very long email and then lost the whole email when Outlook crashes so I just wanted to know if, like Word, there is a temp file that may be created.

Hey guys,
First time posting here.

I have Microsoft Office 2003 & 2007 installed on my laptop and using windows 10. Laptop came with 2007 but 99% of my excel use is for work and they use 2003. So rather than downgrade (seemed silly) I installed 2003 also. Everytime I open an excel file either .xls or .xlsx it opens in 2007. Does anyone know if it is possible to set 2003 as the default program for all these files. I have done the basics like settings, default programs, but when I go to file type and find .xls & .xlsx the only programs I can set for these are Microsoft Office Excel. It does not let me choose between versions.

At the moment I have to open 2003 and then the file. Not a huge problem but if possible would like to make 2003 the default.

A:Default Excel 2003 to open all files over 2007

I don't have an answer for you.
Just to remind you that Excel 2003 can NOT open xlsx files, unless you install the compatibility pack.
Only 2007 and high versions are able to open xlsx by default.

Why don't you just use the 2007.
When you are ready to save the work > Office button > Save As > at Save as type, click the pointer and select Excel 97-2003 Workbook (.xls) > Save.
That way all your office excel 2003 computers will be able to open and edit it.

Hello. I'm having an issue with formulas not working in Excel 2003. I've created a spreadsheet with about 1200 rows in Excel 2007. There are two tabs, one contains all the data, and the other has my working formulas. When I save, I make sure that I save with compatibility to 1997-2003. This works fine when I initially open the spreadsheet in Excel 2003, but if I filter any one column once, my formulas on a separate tab all change to #NAME?

Is there something I can do to keep this from happening?

Let's say I have data contained in Excel with each piece of data in an adjacent cell...

Name: Rank: SSN#:
Smith, John R SSG 123-456-7890

How would I take that information and merge it into a memorandum in Office, all in separate documents?

So say the memorandum looks like this:
Whomever it may concern,

Smith, John R., SSG, United States Army, 123-456-7890 has been certified blah blah blah blah


So if I had 50 names it would produce 50 documents or something?

Is that even possible?

A:Merging Data From Excel Into Word (2003 Or 2007)

I think you can use Mail Merge to do this kind of thing.

I'm guessing your spreadsheet is in the .CSV format?

If you are using 2003, I'm not sure what the headings are at the top, but with 2007 you need to choose the mailings tab and then select start Mail Merge.

Select the Wizard and you should then have an option somewhere down the line to import a data source.

After doing this you should be able to insert the merge fields which should look like <<Surname>> or something like that.

From this you should then be able to create a template letter and print all the records out.

Hope this helps,
