    Attachments (Outlook 2003)

    When I close an attachment in an email that I have not changed in any way, sometimes I am asked if I want to save changes and sometimes not. Why is that?

    Thanks You for your time.....

    Any particular kind of attachment?
    I find (for example) that after opening with Excel 2002 a spreadsheet saved with Excel 2000 and *not* making any changes, I am asked if I want to save the changes I have made.

    Re: Attachments (Outlook 2003)

    Are you asked by Outlook or by the application in which the attachment opened? I know that if I open a message, then open the attachment, then reply to the message, then close the attachment (without making any changes) and then go to close the original message, it asks if I want to save changes because tracking information (the time of the reply) has been added to the message. But there are many possible scenarios and since most applications cannot tell you what the change is, I think you just try to figure them out as they arise.
