How to view total editing time updated in Real time in Word 2007


The total amount of time that a document has been edited is useful for lawyers, consultants, and other professionals who bill for their time.
Knowing how long you have spent working on a document enables you to provide a more accurate accounting of your time.
If you have a time budget that you’re trying to stick to, you may find yourself constantly checking the document’s Properties dialog box to view the Total editing time value.
Rather than wasting time performing that chore, add the EditTime field to your document.
Word’s EditTime field displays the total time, in minutes, that the document has had the system focus (and, presumably, has been edited) since the time at which the document was
created. This is the same as the Total editing time value displayed in the Statistics tab of the document’s Properties dialog box.
Follow these steps to add some code that displays the total editing time with the word minutes added for clarity:

1. Type some descriptive text (such as Total Editing Time).
2. Press Ctrl+F9 to start a new Word field (signified by the { and } braces).
3. Between the field braces, type the following:
EDITTIME # “0 minutes” * mergeformat
4. Press F9 to complete and update the field.

Now all you have to do is update the field (or simply press F9) to check the total editing time instead of going in the properties tab to see total time worked on the document.

hi everyone.. i have made a payment using my credit card for my telephone bill amount.. first time it should an error processing the request and the second time the amount of 866 was credited.. however i received 2 statements saying that 866 was credited twice.. wat shold i do?.. i am in a big fix..


First of all, this is not a operating system problem.

  1. If your billing company has good service, you should call them up and get the excessive amount refunded to your credit card. They won't do this unless you ask them to.
  2. If you are using telephone banking trying to pay off your credit card debt, you should not be worried, the credit will stay on your card for you to use. If you really want the excessive amount to be refunded consult step 1.
  3. You should easily find the service number on the statement.

car accident - airbags did not deploy


Definately not infinity, since they do not have any way of knowing car history, unless they do repairs. Likely not the dealer, unless they withheld info, ie:had prior knowledge and did not disclose. But quite possibly the previous owner, since on transfer, they have a responsibility to acknowledge previous car damage if it amounts to more than 25% of the vehicles value at the time of the repair. Good Luck! I hope you find this to be very helpful!

electricity bill coding in java


First think how you would solve this problem yourself on a piece of paper. Then try programming it using the things you learned (if they've given you this assignment without teaching you to multiply, subtract and use if's, drop the course).
Well here is an idea.

Take the total kilowattage and send it to a function. What the function will do is subtract 14KW from the total Kilowattage and add the amount for the first 14KW then subtract 85KW from the total KW and add the amount for the 85KW. But once you subtract the number of KW from the total make sure to check if the total KW isn't negative, if so just break out of the function and return the total due.

Or if you have formula for how much the rate grows over how many miles.

For example lets say the rate grows by $1 every time the KW doubles you could have something like

int rate = 1; //Begining rate
int KW = 14; //First flat rate
int amount; //total amount they have to pay
while(totalKW > 0)
{
totalKW -= KW; //subtract the first rate
if(totalKW <= 0) //check if too much subtracted
break; //if so break
amount += rate; //add the rate to the total

rate += 1; // Add $1 to the rate every time
KW *= 2; // KW is doubled
}
