  1. ICT Tip #34 - Save As with Libraries

    by , 5th March 2013 at 05:00 PM
    Afternoon all! Another tip that may be entirely useless to you this week, as I know not everyone uses Libraries in their environments. For my part I devoted the time necessary to hack them into shape suitable for a network environment, not that Microsoft made that easy - but that's a rant for another time.

    Anyway - tip #34 - Using Libraries to navigate quickly around the Save As dialog: ICT Tip 034 - Save As with Libraries.doc.

    by , 10th December 2012 at 11:30 AM
    It's that time of the year again when I have to start looking at disabling spell check on Word for various Mock Exams. If only Wordpad had headers and footers, I wouldn't need to go through this every year...

    Anyway, having updated to Office 2010 over the summer, my previous group policy objects aren't going to work with Office 2010, so time for a new way of doing things.
    First of all, I'll credit the website where I got the info, and feel free to follow them rather than my ...

ID:	7599The two latest versions of Office handle paragraph breaks differently to Office 2003 and this seems to cause negative reactions from some users. Lately I have been exposed to a group of people who were new to the Office 2007/2010 way of spacing text and have discovered that they dislike the default settings.

    I think that the issue is not so much based on usability but more based on inertia with regards to previously learnt behaviour. The standard behaviour ...

    Excel
    Excel is the flagship product for the 64 bit line of Office applications, as Excel itself now has no row limit on documents it is only limited by the memory available on your computer. Excel is in fact the only program that Microsoft recommends from their 64 bit offering for users working with large worksheets of millions of rows (note: this was not from the presentation but a recommendation taken from several different Microsoft presentations). ...

The second part contains information on Excel, Office extentions like Ribbon Hero and PowerPivot along with a small amount on SharePoint, Live@Edu and Expression Encoder.

    I arrived ...
  6. Office 2010 joins our Windows 7 Journey

    by , 6th May 2010 at 11:08 AM
    Our Windows 7 Testing is continuing. Testing is going well and so far so good. A few little issues to be resolved by third party software suppliers which I'm hoping will be fixed soon.

    Had an issue with a new Dell Optiplex 380 that wasn't playing nice with WDS, but Fatmas seems to have fixed that now.
