Can I make my own picture into a symbol for use in word/excel?
I created some graphics that I want to insert as symbols (half circle,
quarter circle, full circle - pie charts). How can I turn into symbols that
can be added to the autocorrect feature on word?
Insert the picture into a document. Right-click the picture and make sure to
specify the Text Wrapping that you want. Select the picture and then display the
AutoCorrect dialog box (in Word 2007, click Office button | Word Options |
Proofing | AutoCorrect Options). In the "Replace" box, type whatever key
combinations should trigger the AutoCorrection. At "With," be ...Problem with Word table in Excel
Hope someone can help. Here's my problem.
I want to easily double the amounts in each row of a column in a
Microsoft Word table. I exported the table to Excel, inserted a column
(column B) next to the one I wanted to work with, and typed the formula
=A1*2. I then copied it to the rest of the cells in the B column.
Of course, it worked. All the numbers in the A column were doubled in
the corresponding B-column cells. But when I went to copy the doubled
B-column numbers into the A column, I got a circular reference error.
Problem is that I'm copying the formula, not the actu...Macro: cmd to open/save files in local dir?

"ROBERT" <R...opening old MS Word for Mac documents
I have many Word documents I cannot open on my present OSX.4.11
PowerBook G4 computer. All of them are from November 1992 and
before. I can open all later documents. The earlier documents can
open in Word or Text edit, but they only show the greeting of the
letter or the first few words of the document and then revert to
gibberish. Its hard for me to accept that all that historical
material is now lost forever.
You could buy MacLink Plus, as it can open older Word formats (all the way
down to Word 4). Also, some older Word for Windows application might be able
to open them.

Many (but not all) mailboxes are reported through System Manager and through
Outlook mailbox properties as being larger than they actually are. Often, a
lot larger. In one case, a users Outbox folder was reported as being over
50MB when, in fact, it was empty.
It also seems to be the case that for these mailboxes, users can't use

The RegisterShellFileTypes function call seems to register/associate

are not overwritten by this function call.
As in any PC, mp3 files are always registered to some media player. How
can I steal the file association similar to what Winamp does?
Is there a direct function call or should I modify registry directly?
