Existing word documents made on PC
Operating System: Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard)
I have a number of documents made on a PC that include images - scanned, from the internet, etc. They look fine when opened by Word for PC, but when the same file is opened by me using Office 08 for Mac, some (not all) of the pictures appear absolutely minute, in the top left of the image box. The image box is still there, so the text alignment is not affected, but the rest of the text box is blank. I have even had a colleague open the file on her PC to show me the image is fine, then email me the same image - with the s...I need to compare 3 numbers and find the one in the middle

is there a function in excel that can do this?

Excel 2007's context menu includes Paste Special; Word's does not. I have
frequent need for Paste Special in Word and the many trips to the Ribbon get
tiresome. I'd like to know how to add commands to the context menu in
general, but a solution for Paste Special is the immediate need.

I have a small doubt could you clarify that???
That is I find duplicate name but I want to delete one name only, if I
filter DUPLICATE….. both names are showing…
1. Select the range of data including the header. You need to have headers
for these columns
2. From menu Data>Filter>Advanced Filter>Copy to another location
3. In 'copy to' specify the target cell and check 'Unique records only'
4. Click OK will give you the unique list

Ooooooooh, Mary...how do i get negative numbers in brackets in Excel
i find i cannot enter negative numbers in accounts in brackets
but this is the accounting convention
is it hidden in excel
or do i need a plug in
Enter numbers using the minus symbol, but format your cells: Format => Cells
=> Number [tab] and in the Type box, enter "#,##0.00_ ;[Red](#,##0.00) "
(without the quotation marks).

Has any functionality been added to 2003 for this? Or is there a non-
