Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

My MS Excel vlookup function ASCII type table contains both upper case and lower case letters, characters like ( and % or *, and numbers. It seems to return the numerical equivalent of upper case letters only, not the lower case, and fails on numbers, returning #N/A. The upper case letters and most of the other characters work properly.

Keyboard not functioning


It may be a fault in the keyboard driver or in the keyboard itself. However if the character you need is not available on the keyboard directly it is possible to get any character by using the ASCII char code entry method. First off search the internet for a ASCII character number associating table (for a chart I like best, check here http://michaelgoerz.net/blog/2008/09/ascii-table/ascii.gif) now on this chart you have to use common fonts (IE: Ariel, times new roman, ect.) because some of the TTF fonts do not have all the characters in them available.
Now to practice using the characters, load Notepad and find the character you want to display from the chart (note: the number like 000d and 00h actually means 000 decimal and 00 hexadecimal, only use the number with the "d" after it with this method), on Notepad, after you pick out the character you want to display, press and hold the ALT key, and on your keypad (on most keyboards it is on the right side and resembles a calculator type keypad) while holding the ALT key down enter the number of the character you want to display (do not include the "d", only the number) then release the ALT key and that character should display for you in Notepad. Almost all standard fonts has the regular characters and some has the extended characters, you will have to check to see if the font uses them by trial and error. this method is a long lost forgotten means of putting characters into your documents which does not have keys on a standard keyboard (most standard keyboards only have 101 keys so this is the only way of using all the 255 character available in common fonts).
This is a built in function of all computers that uses Microsoft OS's and even DOS, HDOS, EDOS, (well all the DOS's), and you can use them anywhere you can type anything from your keyboard, (emails, letters, databases, spread sheets, etc.) if you can type from the keyboard to any program you can use these characters in this manner.
I hope this help you out!

Tip

Some letter key is not working on keyboard???


if any of the key on the keyboard is not working, you can use an alternate for time being. This is regarding ASCII. There are ASCII codes for every character on the keyboard. A - 65,B - 66........... So on a - 97, b - 98...........So on
Use these codes by pressing and holding Alt key on the keyboard. In order to type b character. Press and hold Alt key and type 66 from the numpad at the right side of the keyboard.

WE HAVE A SHARP ER-A610 CASH REGISTER WE WOULD LIKE TO CHANGE THE ITEM LABEL FOR EACH DEPARTMENT KEY BUT DON'T KNOW THE JOB # AND PROCEEDURE FOR DOING IT I DON'T HAVE ALL THE PAGES OF THE MANU


Sharp uses a 3-digit ASCII code for each character. The ER-A610 manual has a table of the codes, but if you've lost that part of the book, you can find ascii tables online, like this one:
http://www.ascii.cl/
Note that many of these show 2-digit codes; add a leading zero to those, so A is 065, B is 066, etc.
the 00 key on your ER-A610 has a special purpose here - it is used to enter each character's code, so to spell FOOD you'd enter:
070 00
079 00
079 00
068 00
where each of those double-zeroes is the double-zero key, not just two zeroes.
You need to know the number of each department you need to change. If you're not sure what order they're numbered in (It's completely customizable, so don't count on them being in order, unless you're sure.), print out your current department programming:
(In PGM1 or PGM2 mode)
1100 @/FOR CA/AT
will print out all the depts. CA/AT is the Cash key at the bottom-right corner of the keyboard. It stands for CAsh / Amount Tendered, which isn't exactly obvious, so some folks relabel it.
Note that on the tape you printed, the name is printed below the dept. number.
Now we're ready to start. In PGM2 mode, enter:
2114 . @/FOR (Is the decimal point after the 2114 visible here?)
[dept. number] @/FOR [character codes] SBTL
[dept. number] @/FOR [character codes] SBTL
[dept. number] @/FOR [character codes] SBTL
(etc. until done)
CA/AT
For [dept. number], enter the number on the keypad, not by touching the actual dept. key.
[character codes] is the sequence of 3-digit codes and 00 key presses, like the FOOD example above.
If the departments you're changing are sequential, life is a little easier. When you finish Department 6 (for example) by touching the SBTL key, it will automatically count up to 7. You can do a series of depts. by entering the first of them as above, then after using the SBTL key, go straight into the character codes for the next in line. Continue this way for as many are in series. You can jump ahead or back at any time by with [dept. no.] @/FOR and keep going from there.
SBTL in all the lines above, means the key that normally shows your subtotal including tax. It might be labeled #/SBTL. The MDSE SBTL key won't do the trick.
If you use PLU's in you register, their names are programed exactly the same, except that instead of starting with 2114, you use 2214. Simple, no?

Passwords changed


I wouldn't swear to it but passwords don't change unless someone changes them. If your account has been deleted and account password changed, someone hacked your password and has put the shaft to you. You'll have to create a new account. For security's sake, use a different password, make it at least 8 characters long using a combination of upper and lower case letters, symbols and numbers. It could look something like this: R1kL3t&. Change it quarterly at least.

Cant type upper case letters


If your caps lock is not working, a best alternative would be to hold down the shift key while pressing a letter and it will convert lower case to upper case.

Sounds like a new keyboard may be in the future for you.

Fix it utilities will not accept my Serial Number:8311-0271-00003-TBYW-MGG6-OVPA-4RPW


Serial numbers for some applications need to be typed in, not copy and paste. Make sure you use the correct case upper or lower.
Make sure the Zeros are the Number and not the capitol letter O.

In the number you give it looks like there are 5 number "0" and 1 letter "O"
Also if you did'nt actually buy the program but downloaded it from the internet the serial could be blacklisted by the software company. If you did buy the product and it wont accept the numbers then take it/send it back to the retailer.
