Hi all, a friend of
mine asked me this question.
He noticed a difference in behavior between Excel 2000 and Excel 2002,
in
opening a file. Infact, whilst Excel 2000 accept "parts of name" and
opens
the file, Excel 2002 does not, and constraints you to write the entire
name (or, obviously, to find it via MS explorer and click it).
I have checked Excel 2002 "tools-options" but i have not found any
parameter.
Please, may you tell me about it?
Thanks

Marco Guarnacci

Tell your friend that he could wrap the partial name with asterisks and hit
enter:

*book* (enter)
will show all the
book1.xls
mybookofexamples.xls
etc

(It's a little extra work, but I don't think I even notice it anymore.)
