I just installed Office mac 2004 student teacher edition on my brand new MacBook. I can't seem to use equation editor. Since I am a math teacher, that sucks - to say the least! Error message says somethng like - make sure it has been installed, or maybe it has been renamed etc. All I did was install. Short of using my 2nd product key to fix the problem what can I check. Find brings up no info on equation editor.
I don't think Eq Ed is automatically installed with a standard installation
of Office 2004 - it needs to be included in a custom install or added later.

Operating System: Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard)
I created a document (.docx) using the Office 2008 version of MS Word some time ago (2 months or so). Recently I wanted to correct an equation in that document and re-opened the document (on the same system and with the "same" copy of Word) and attempted to double-click the equation to edit it. Instead of the equation editor I get the "Format Picture" dialog box. In the interim I did install an update (I tend to try to stay up to date) and am at 12.2.4 (100205). <br><...Linear trendline:wrong equation
I created a bar chart in Excel from the following data:
The SLOPE and the INTERCEPT functions returned -0.136 and 16.4448
respectively. The resulting equation is Y = -0.136X + 16.448 which seems good
enough to me.
Then I added a linear trendline to the chart. Excel displayed the following
equation: Y = -0.9X + 7.5, R ^2 =1 which is way off (and it's not a rounding
The data seemed farly linear to me, how come Excel can't come up with the

I was trying to form a trendline with following data :

0.0318x + 1.1429 and R2 = 0.9998

I've been searching the queries here and can't find an
answer to what I'm hoping is a simple query . . . I want
my equation to ensure that any minus values are returned
as 0 but positive values should remain true. THis needs
to be within the original equation as opposed to a
separate equation doing a find and replace. Appreciate
any answers (preferably by e-mail!).
Try using IF(), for example:
Put in C1: =IF((A1-B1)<0,0,A1-B1)
which will return 0 if (A1-B1) results in a minus value
with zero & positive values remaining true
Hope the above helps.

When I type a number divided by a fraction using the Stacked fraction and
Small fraction templates on the Equation Ribbon, the Stacked fraction bar
automatically resizes to fit making it difficult to easily differentiate
between the two fraction bars. (Think: 3/2/3 written vertically. Is this 3
divided by 2/3 or 3/2 divided by 3?) Is there a way to prevent the resizing?
I want the Stacked fraction bar to be noticeably longer than the Small
fraction bar. I know I can use Linear or Skewed instead of the Small fraction
