cleaning headers and footers history
Posted by Luc Rogge on October 31, 2000 9:20 AM
Hi Mr Excel,
My company made customized exports from our own applications to Excel,
using Excel template files
(that is: regular XLS files copied and filled with data).
The problem is:
the template files contain the history of the headers and footers used in the development stage:
- "adaptated by programmer X"
Some customers questioned us about those titles:
"have you the right to distribute those templates?", etc.
Those template are quite complex (with many named areas),
and customers may have adapted some templates
(that's the purpose of the template).
We thus can't just make new templates and overwrite existing ones.
My boss is about to kill programmer X because of that.
(you know how bosses are...).
Do you know any way to remove such information from the Excel file?
P.S. Programmer X has left the company before the problem appeared,
so the boss can't easily kill him.
So don't worry too much about him if you don't have a solution ;-)
