Hi,

I need assistance in the following problem.

The following bugs in Microsoft Word were discovered by Whittaker in 2001:

a. Launch WORD
b. Go to: Insert-> Reference->Index and Tables
c. Change "Column" field to 5
d. When we click OK, the wrong message appears twice
We have also discussed a few other bugs in Microsoft products. These bugs have been reported to Microsoft, but most are still there.

Why doesn't Microsoft correct these and other bugs mentioned in the enclosed document?

Thanks & Best Regards

Accounting: Instructions for the Microsoft Excel Templates

Instructions for the Microsoft Excel Templates

Detail and information on Excel is contained within the manual.

Striking the "F1" key or following the path "Windows>Excel Help" will invoke the Office Assistant
and bring up one of several help menus.

Type your name into the cell to the right of the label "Name." This will be copied by formula to the rest of the pages as required.

Type the due date of your problem into cell to the right of the label "Date."

Type your instructor's name into cell to the right of the label "Instructor."

Type the course identifier into cell to the right of the label "Course."

The problem is identified in the text of the challenge.

In "DATE" cells enter the date in any of several formats and Excel will format it correctly.

If more than one page is preformatted into the problem, page breaks are preset and formulas are
set to copy the header into the remaining pages.

Place the proper account title in the cell where the word "ACCOUNT" appears on the template.

Place the amount in the cell where the word "AMOUNT" appears on the template. A formula may be placed in some of these cells.

Enter a number like 914 to signify units or gallons where the word "NUMBER" appears.

Write a formula into cells where the word "FORMULA" appears. In these cells, an amount calculated outside of Excel can be entered into Excel if desired.

Place the explanation for the entry in the cell where the word "EXPLANATION" appears on the template.

Insert the account number where "ACCT #" appears on the template during posting.

Insert the journal reference where "JOURN #" appears on the template during posting.

Insert the title in the cell where "TITLE" appears on the template.

The print area is defined to fit onto 8 1/2" X 11" sheets in portrait or landscape mode as required.

The gray filled cells define the perimeter of the problem and the print area.

The problem is formatted for whole dollars with comma separations (no cents) except where required.

The display may have "Freeze Pane" invoked so column titles remain visible during data entry.

Negative values may be shown as ($400) vice -$400.

Enter a string like: ($259,417 X 12 months) + (0.3651 X 5,434,631) where the word TEXT appears.
