Out of interest... what does the naming of the temporary folder OLK6F represent?

Excel or Word attachements opened directly from emails or from web sites put a copy in the temporary OLK6F folder.

thanks - but what does OLK6F mean? or is it just a random letter/number sequence?

I expect the person that developed that bit of the program gave it a name that meant something to him. Maybe it's the registration number of his first car;-)

Seriously though you would go crackers trying to work out what temp folder names mean. I've just look in my temp folder and some of them have alphanumeric names in excess of 20 characters long.

The 6F could be hex.
