I am trying to key text beginning with non-sequential letters/numbers. I cannot make Word quit changing what I key to sequential letters.


I am unsure which version of office you are using. This is a function of auto-correct. You may need to turn it off to stop this behavior, and turn it back on, if you need it to help you compose documents.
( My directions will be using Word 2007, which is what I have installed on my system.)
You need to open the Word Options panel. and go to Proofing.
GO into this location several times in a row, so that you can remember it better, and return to re-enable auto-correct. Uncheck the boxes needed to turn off this behavior.

How do I enable a compaq laptop's keys


Compaq Presario computers provide users with a row of function keys for added keyboard functionality. Function keys can serve a dual purpose as well.
Function keys are located at the top of Compaq Presario keyboards.
By learning how function keys work on a Compaq Presario you can take advantage of time saving keyboard shortcuts.Purpose
Use function keys to access menus, save changes and create shortcut keys.
Various applications, including Microsoft Office, allow you to select a function key as a shortcut key for running specific tasks. These settings are usually found under the Tools, Settings or File menu.
Each Compaq Presario computer has twelve function keys.
The most common used keys are "F2," "F8," "F10" and "F12."
The first three are used mainly to access and use the Compaq BIOS. "F12" is used to access a set of run from options during the boot process.

How to Access
Access function keys on a Compaq Presario by pressing any of the keys on the top row of the keyboard. Access the key's dual purpose by first pressing the "Fn" key located on the bottom row of keys.
Use function keys as shortcut keys by pressing them anytime while in the desired application. Remember, you must set them as shortcut keys first.
Note that some programs may already have certain function keys set as shortcuts.
Open menus and view the shortcut keys beside each menu item before setting your own shortcuts.


Dual Uses Each function key has a dual use. Press "Fn" plus the desired function key for the key's other use.
Below each function number is a small picture within a square or rectangle.
This dictates the dual use. "F1" opens help and support. "F2" serves as a printer shortcut.
Open your homepage by pressing "F3."
If you use dual monitors, switch between monitors by using "F4." "F5" puts your computer in stand-by mode.
Quickly lock your computer by pressing "F6." "F7" and "F8" adjust the screen's contrast.
Play and pause your music in Windows Media Player or other default media player by using "F9."
Press "F10" to stop playing media. Skip ahead or rewind media by using "F11" and "F12."

Other "Fn" Keys

In addition to function keys, the "Fn" key is also provides other keys with a dual use.
Any key with a small square on the key has a dual purpose such as the "scroll," "insert" and "delete" buttons.
Since laptop keyboards have no number pads, certain keys serve as the number pad by pressing the "Fn" key.

Mouse pad stopped working


If you are referring to the "touch pad" on Laptop/notebook, if the touchpad on your laptop is not working and is unresponsive, it's not broken, you or someone else has accidently deactivated it with the function key.

Then you can try this,
Most laptops (if not all) come with a function key. The function key is labelled "Fn" and usually stands out from the rest - either the "Fn" is in a different color or the key as a whole. The function key works in conjunction with other keys on the keyboard especially the ones in the top row marked "F1" to "F12". The combination of function key with these keys lets you perform various tasks quickly such as shutting the screen, putting the computer in sleep mode, switching the wireless connection on and off etc.

By keeping the function key pressed and then hitting one of the keys ("F1" to "F12"), activates a task. You can activate and deactivate the touchpad by using the function key with the "F8" key.

Hope it helps.

I enter the puk code more than three time and now my sim is asking for puk code


Hi,

If you need the PUK ( Personal Unblocking Key ) for your phone, you will have to contact your mobile phone service provider.

PUK code is related to the SIM card you are using and not the phone. So, kindly call the Customer support of your mobile service provider and they will provide you with the PUK code free of charge.

Also, entering a wrong PUK code ten times in a row disables the SIM card permanently. So, please be careful while entering the PUK code.

Hope this solves your problem. Thanks for using FixYa.

How to get all balance sheet entries tally to excel


This is a very handy process when you're totaling or subtotaling columns. On the cell that you want the 'total' in type '=sum(column letter row number),(column letter row number). The first 'column letter row number' is where you want the first cell to be started in the total factor and the second 'column letter row number) is the last cell you want added in the total factor. The help (?) section is good at explaining formulas. Hope this helps, keep this process handy if you use Excel much because it'll be helpfull each time you subtotal or total columns.

Second monitor is connected but screen remains


Hi, Ronald.

If you look at the function keys (F1 through F12) on the top row of your keyboard, you should see a CRT/LCD label or symbol, typically on F4 or F8 (may be different for your laptop).

Press the Fn key (typically on the left bottom of your keyboard) with that function key and you would toggle through accessing your laptop display, your external monitor display and both displays (may not be in that order).

Hope this helps.

Flex Grid


The most common multidimensional array, the two dimensional array table, is best presented to your users in row and column format. The grid control offers a convenient way for you to display table data to your users. The users can navigate the table's values using scrollbars. Therefore, the grid control does not have to be as large as the table, because the grid control automatically displays scrollbars.
To add the flex grid control to your toolbox, select project and components. Add the flex grid control:
lesson97-1.jpg Once it is added, you will see the yellow flex grid control in your toolbox:
lesson97-2.jpg When you place the grid control on your form, you will have to resize it before the control takes on a tabular appearance. As you expand the size of the control, it does not look to much like a table. The problem is that the table's default number of rows and columns are two. To fix this problem, you must configure the rows and columns in the properties window:
lesson97-3.jpg lesson97-4.jpg lesson97-5.jpg The grid control supports fixed rows and columns. These refer to rows and columns in a grid control that do not scroll when the user clicks the scrollbars. The fixed rows and columns provides labels that describe the data. The fixed rows and columns are often called row and column headers.
lesson97-6.jpg When working with the grid control, much code is needed to provide the grid with functionality. Call statements are used to break the code required by the grid control into smaller, more manageable procedures. This is referred to as modular programming (which refers to the practice of placing code with a single purpose in a general subroutine procedure and then calling the code from a second procedure.)
Here is the code for the form load procedure (this example is based on the computer disk example used in the last lesson)


Private Sub Form_Load()
Call SizeCells
Call CenterCells



grdGrid.Row = 0
grdGrid.Col = 1
grdGrid.Text = "Single Sided; Low Density "
grdGrid.Col = 2
grdGrid.Text = "Double Sided; Low Density"
grdGrid.Col = 3
grdGrid.Text = "Singled Sided; High Density"
grdGrid.Col = 4
grdGrid.Text = "Double Sided; High Density"

grdGrid.Row = 1
grdGrid.Col = 0
grdGrid.Text = "3 1/2 inch"
grdGrid.Col = 1
grdGrid.Text = "$2.30"
grdGrid.Col = 2
grdGrid.Text = "$2.75"
grdGrid.Col = 3
grdGrid.Text = "$3.20"
grdGrid.Col = 4
grdGrid.Text = "$3.50"



grdGrid.Row = 2
grdGrid.Col = 0
grdGrid.Text = "5 1/4 inch"
grdGrid.Col = 1
grdGrid.Text = "$1.75"
grdGrid.Col = 2
grdGrid.Text = "$2.10"
grdGrid.Col = 3
grdGrid.Text = "$2.60"
grdGrid.Col = 4
grdGrid.Text = "$2.95"

End Sub
Notice how the form load procedure is used to populate the cells in the grid control. To control cell size and cell alignment, two smaller procedures are created and each procedure is called by the form load procedure.


Private Sub SizeCells()
Dim intColumn As Integer

grdGrid.ColWidth(0) = 1100

For intColumn = 1 To 4
grdGrid.ColWidth(intColumn) = 2200
Next intColumn

End Sub

Private Sub CenterCells()
Dim intColumn As Integer

For intColumn = 1 To 4
grdGrid.ColAlignment(intColumn) = flexAlignCenterCenter
Next intColumn

End Sub

Notice that the size and alignment procedures are only applied to columns 1 through 4. Column 0, which is a fixed column reserved for labels, is not formatted using either of the above two procedures.
Here is the final result:
