Re: instructions adding in winmail

 

Mark,

         Are you trying to add contacts from scratch?  You are right that there can be a number of things that are one-time setup that are peculiar since the People app and the Mail App are separate.  One of those is, if you have multiple e-mail accounts, you need to set one as default on which new contacts will be added (though you can shift to any other as a one-time exercise or change the default if you have a batch of new contacts you want to add).

         It would be helpful to know where you're getting stuck and what it is you're trying to accomplish at that moment in time.

A straight range would also work, if there are any values in that range at all. That always worked for me when I was figuring grades.

Joe,

There may be another function for averaging that avoids any zero values.
Otherwise, create a formula that first finds all non-zero values, and then
adds them up and divide by the total count of non-zero values. That takes a
few functions, but workable. I recall doing something like this several
years ago. First try to find a built-in function that averages all non-zero
values.

Also, check the Excel help function to look for any web-sourced solutions to
your question.

the problem being at the moment not all the cells have a number in them and

the formula i have tried is =AVERAGE(B102 D102 F102 G102 H102 I102 J102 K102
L102 M102) but with this fromaler as far as I can tell the advridge of
these numbers all need a number in for it to show anything.
for example if b 102 and f 102 have numbers in I still get nothing in the
average cell.

I you want to use the formulas dialog, press ALT+m, then f. Tab to
the categories and choose all, then tab once more and find
average. You can fill in range after range after range, tabbing from
one to the next. Tabbing will *never get you to the okay button,
because it just allows for another range. Pressing enter might do
the okay, or shift+tab till you get back to okay.

I always  recommend The Old reader. www.theoldreader.com

It’s a web based RSS service.

I have it  set as my homepage. I hank the first 100 feeds are free, but for more or  if you  want more features, it’s $2.00 a month  or $30.00 a year. I choose to  pay  and support the service.

It also works with Feedller Pro on  iOS. Thus  allowing  for cross-platform synchronicity.

There are keyboard commands and is fully accessible with Jaws.

Hi Robin and Everyone,
That is Exactly what I do. I do not have the auto correct on, because I do not like the interruption while I am typing, and do not want to figure out where I am in my thoughts and words. However, I do not send or save anything without doing a spell check, with the (insert F 7). I am a pretty good speller, but a fast typist. In fact, I never thought about this, until you said it, but I have learned from listening to the spelling.

Re: editing a draft in windows live mail

 

Ryan,

           How you receive your messages should have nothing to do with drafts being saved in the Drafts folder.

           As an aside, and I think it needs to be said as a general point, it is rude to ask for help in public, in a forum where others may be experiencing the same problem or problems and be helped by the answers, and immediately request private responses.  I won't do that, period.  If you need to turn on digests or to follow your own single thread rather than a digest via the web interface that's what you should be doing.

For my work, we use Kronos, and lucky for me, they have the lite version available for my machine where I go to get into it, otherwise that's one whose regular interface uses a lot of flash which gets unpredictable to where it will go in the activities section that we don't use instead of letting me punch in, and I wouldn't be able to approve easily. I can't see how much vacation I've earned with the lite one, but at least I don't have to create additional lost time or artificial lateness when help can take a long time to arrive.

1) Go into settings center using insert+v.
2) In the search box" type "link activation".
3) In the search results, find "link activation".
4) Press the space bar once to change the setting from "enter simulates mouse click" to "enter presses Enter key", or something to that effect.
5) Tab to OK and press Enter to exit settings center.
6) Re-test the application; if it doesn't fix the issue, restart Jaws & re-test.

Re: excel questions

That shouldn't matter. I tried it by putting in random numbers in column
a1:a10. I put the formula =average(a1:a10) in cell a11 and it came up with
an average. Not all cells had numbers in them. If you don't want the error
showing up you can try =ifError(average(a2:a101),""). The formula will show
a blanck cell if there is an error. As far as getting it to the other cells
I would just do a copy paste. I hope this helps.
