Word: Create and print a booklet
Word XP makes it easy to create and print a booklet. With just a few clicks of the mouse, Word does the page layout for you; you just have to give Word the number of pages and add the text and graphics.
Follow these steps to create an eight-page booklet that reads from left to right:
Enter text, graphics, headers, and footers. When completed, follow these steps to print the booklet:
Nonduplex printers will print the front side of each sheet in your booklet and then prompt you to reinsert those sheets to print on the back of each.
Excel: Change the default currency
If your worksheet's formatting conforms to your regional settings, Excel's Currency button makes it easy to format currency values. This button uses settings from the Regional Options dialog box to set the default format. For example, if the Regional Options are set to English (United States), by default, the Currency button formats currency values for the United States.
Follow these steps to change the Currency button's default county/region settings by resetting them in Control Panel:
The next time you start Excel, clicking the Currency button will format the cells in the new format.
In earlier versions of Windows, you may need to restart your computer for the changes to take effect. In addition, changing the region in Windows also changes the settings for time, date, and number formats to those used in that region.
Access: Use subdatasheets to view data in a related table
Subdatasheets let users view related records in two tables that share a one-to-many relationship. For example, in a library database, the Authors table and the Books table have a one-to-many relationship; in other words, each record in the Authors table can have more than one record in the Books table.
Follow these steps to insert subdatasheets to view the related records in these tables:
The subdatasheets are inserted in the Authors Table, which is indicated by a small plus sign displayed in the first column of each record. Clicking the plus sign will display the related records in the Books table.
