Welcome to the TechRepublic How do I... blog


So much of being an IT professional revolves around either knowing how to do something or knowing how to find out how to do something. This blog aims to be one of your primary resources for finding out the exact procedure you need to follow to achieve a specific goal. Each blog entry will show you the commands, screenshots, wizards, configurations, and procedures necessary for success.

The TechRepublic How do I... blog will also be a conversation. I want to know what How do I... you would like to see in the blog. If you think you have a How do I that other TechRepublic members would be interested in, I want to publish it. If we publish a How do I... and you think you have a better way to achieve the same result, I want hear about that too.

The TechRepublic How do I... blog is all about practical tutorials to solve your practical problems; step-by-step procedures to help you achieve a specific result. I am looking forward to it, I hope you are too.

I have a Word document that I e-mail to customers (or they dowload from the intranet) for specifying work to be done. The title of the document is compiled from several fields in the doc. How do I get the fields in the title to auto-update when the information is typed in? Currently I have to right-click each field and select 'Update Field'. Can it be done...? Regards

How do I find someone who can write Linux drivers for my hardware? -OR- How do I learn how to write Linux drivers for my hardware myself? -OR- How can we get manufacturers to supply Linux drivers for their hardware products in the FIRST place? ...You get the gist of where I'm heading? ;) B-)

I'm attempting to get a commercial adaptation of a rail traffic-control simulation model to interact with a home-brewed program duplicating the dispatcher's thinking, previously written (without any I/O interface) in BASIC a few years ago, now being redeveloped in C++. The commercial program has a fully-developed external I/O interface using a set of text files which reside in the same folder as the application (O/S is Windows XP Pro). I can generate commands, which should cause changes in settings on the commercial application when recognized, but am not familiar with the technique to enter them on the input file, which apparently can't be relocated to my program. Any help would be appreciated. - Thanks!
