Why won't Yahoo won't export contacts to .csv file?

I'm trying to create a csv file with all of my yahoo contacts. I hit the "export all" the file for a yahoo.csv, screen shows a file downloads but no contact data is included in the excel file. Its just an empty excel file that includes headers...ie first name, last name, address, email etc...but none of the contacts' data is included?
What am I doing wrong?


Answer

Could be a prblem in that file format
Try open it in Notepad

Also, try add some more contacts then export again

Did you try another format?

How to print a chart in Excel 2007?

Help! I have an assignment due tomorrow where I had to make bar graphs in Excel 2007. The graphs are showing up perfectly in print preview, but the actual bars won't print. The X and Y axis and chart title prints only. I have a HP Officejet 6210. I have no idea what to do. Thanks!


Answer

You need to do these steps as they are the most popular reasons for problems like this

1- Clear history and cookies
2- Delete temporary internet files
Both 1 and 2 are in Internet options from Control panel
3- Delete "Temp" folder content (and not the folder), it is in your C: > documents and settings > YOURUSERNAME > Local settings > Temp, this will solve a lot of problems
4- Restart computer and try again

Do Step 3 if you are using WinXP, if you have VISTA, then step 3 would be
3- Delete "Temp" folder content (and not the folder), it is in your C: > Users > YOURUSERNAME > AppData > Temp, this will solve a lot of problems

When I want to print ,it shows the messege"WINSPOOL.DLL" not found.What should I do?I am using XP5.8?

I have installed urdu software name 'inpage'.the excel and word files are easily printed but the files from inpage urdu are not printed.


Answer

It looks like your program can not recognize the XP printer style and still using the old fashion way

The best way to do it is to print the file you have into a program printer (Office has one called "Office Document Image Writer" or "Office XPS Writer")
Or you can install a free PDF printer here (Http://www.prismpdf.com) and print to that printer
This will generate a file that you can easily print using its application

So you are using a third application to print yours since you can not print using your own application

good luck

I have added new users to Windows XP. In each of these new accounts the Firefox addons have disappeared.?

Recently I have added new user accounts to Windows XP. Since then I have been experiencing numerous problems regarding the use of Mozilla Firefox. All bookmarks, add-ons and customizations have disappeared completely. I've solved the bookmarks problem by importing my old bookmarks list into my new account. In addition customizing Firefox to back my likings was a breeze. However the problem of the missing add-ons remains. I've painstakingly been searching Google for the missing add-ons are re-downloading them one by one.

This brings me to my question. Is there a way to copy Firefox add-ons from one XP account to another? Can I somehow copy add-on files from their location in one users account to another? If such a feat were possible it would save immense quantity of time and reduce my download usage. Help is much appreciated.


Answer

Who said copying addons files will copy the addons itself.
If you are sure of that, you can do this:
1- Open the Documents and settings, you will see a folder for each of the users
2- Open the main user (The one that was active when you installed the addons), then go to Application Data folder
3- search in there for the firefox addons files (It should be there in the folder named "firefox" or something like that)
4- If you found nothing there, try the folder "Local Settings" then "Application Data"
5- Copy it into the exact place in all of the users folders
6- restart computer and try again

I still can not think that copying these files will enable them into firefox, any way, you can try

Getting xp boot cd to format?

i am having problems with my XP cd.. half way through the setup the storm turned my comp off.. now i cant boot up using my cd because it was a copied version and i have to be logged in to be able to install it.. is there a way i could use a install cd that booted up and installed. i already have my bootlist having cd boot frist... anything i can download?


Answer

If you are formatting, you don't need to log in.
All you need is to boot from CD and - following instructions of WinXP setup - install new windows.

But If you are upgrading, installing WinXP from WinXP, I am afraid you need to format it.

There are alot of tools to download, but all will not fix your program, they will recommand you to format.

Good luck
