Turn Off Filename Extension Warning

In Leopard, Apple fixed an annoying aspect of working with the Finder in Tiger. Previously, if you changed a file's extension, the Finder prompted for confirmation. But since no one has ever accidentally changed a filename extension, Apple thankfully added an option to turn that warning off in the Leopard Finder's preferences. Choose Finder > Preferences, and in the Advanced screen, deselect Show Warning Before Changing an Extension.

I'm doing a DT Trial right now. I've gotten the Kissell book and it's very good on many things but has not helped me figure out how to link documents to a sortable spreadsheet, which is my primary goal right now. Perhaps I will discovery I cannot do this with DT as I continue the trial.

I can't quite visualize what you're trying to accomplish, but if you can explain it in more detail I might be able to offer some guidance. Feel free to contact me by email; this might be too long to handle in comments.
