Microsoft Office SIG
Home Page

      This sub-group within CPCUG was in operation for about 10 years, until June 2008. CPCUG would like to continue this, but a volunteer co-ordinator and location are needed. If you can help provide either aspect, E-mail me, using the link at the bottom of this page.

    • Background for questions:
      • Asking almost anything means you'll be asked for background on your hardware, Operating System, Office version, etc.
      • Help the person trying to help you.
    • Hints and Kinks:
      • Using Microsoft help resources. From Frank Camp, Jan 06.
      • Updating your Microsoft OS & App Files. From Frank Camp, Mar 06.
      • Hard drives DO crash. Prepare before your irreplaceable information disappears.
      • Changing web page size. Using View/Text within Microsoft Internet Explorer(MSIE) to change text size doesn't work with all types of web pages. A bookmarklet will change the size of any page with most web browsers, including MSIE.
      • Renaming files en_masse.
      • Creating transparent text. MS Word was used to create a file that contains the word "office." Note that details of the background can be seen, which only happens with a transparent image file.
