copy paste formulas in excell

Mark Furness
 

There was a way to copy a formula in one cell then paste it in several other cells and excel would correct the formula to fit the new cells position.

Hitting shift f10or application key and picking formula does not work.

Could my problem I’m using excel 2007?

Re: excel column title reading

 

I reassign this key combination in the keyboard manager, due to the fact that I lost a couple of fingers on each hand in the accident in which I also lost my sight this is an impossible combination for me.

The old combination was Insert+Control+Shift+R and the same with C, for some reason the “R” comnbination for rows always seems to work the “C” combination on some of my computers does not so I use Insert+Control+Shift+E for the column titles which seems to work.

Hello Mark,

With the cursor anywhere in the column header row press insert control alt C.

With the cursor anywhere in the row headers column, press insert control alt R.

It takes a little dexterity; I put my little finger, right hand, on insert, index right hand on control, middle finger left hand, on C, and thumb, left hand, on alt.

Cheers Kevin.

Re: Outlook 2016 performance problems with jaws

 

Hi Tom,

That most likely is your problem, Microsoft actually doesn't even recommend using the 64 Bit version of Office on a 64 Bit computer, the only time it is a good idea to use it is when you have huge spreadsheets and I mean huge as in maybe several Gigabytes huge. I would simply uninstall your Office if you use Office 365 and reinstall the 32 Bit version and I guess 95% of your problems will go away.

Regards,
Sieghard

Jason:

I'm still using Windows 7 here with Jaws 17 and Outlook 2016.

However, I am using the 64-bit version of Office 365, which I installed because this laptop is a 64-bit machine.

Perhaps that is part of my problem.

Maybe I need to go back to the 32-bit version of Office 365, but am in the middle of a relocation right now, so won't be able to do this any time soon.

My Jaws SMA is also good through Jaws 18, so perhaps installing the new Jaws version will help as well.

I've had very serious reliability problems with older versions of JAWS and Microsoft Outlook, including JAWS 16 and early releases of 17.

Re: excel column title reading

Poppa Bear <heavens4real@...>
 

To set the titles fore the roes and columns in JAWS it is Insert/alt/control/C for Column and Insert/alt/control/R for the Row, it is a tricky finger combonation. If you want to do the columns you would start at say cell A-1, press the combonation for setting column headers and then arrow right until you get to the end of the column titles that you want Jaws to read and press enter, the same goes for the roe, press the keystroke and then down arrow until you are at the end of the row headers and press enter. Now when you are moving through cells JAWS will announce the row and column headers.

Re: removing headders in Word 2016

Mcginnis, Barbara
 

I have Word 2013 and I remove header by press Alt plus W for View, H for header, and R for remove header. All headers are removed from the documents. Since I don't have 2016, I can speak for that but I know this works for 2013 and I am almost positive the same feature was in 2010. Just checked Internet and it says it works the same for 2016. If your document has sections, you have to do it for each section.

Re: excell column title reading

Ann Byrne
 

The JAWS shortcut for columns is insert+alt+control+c; for rows insert+alt+control+r. This creates a JAWS file that associates itself with your document. If you move or rename the document, you have to redo the association.

The Excel/JAWS way to do it is

With the cursor in the row/column that is the header Press ALT+m, then m; JAWS will say "Define name dot dot dot".
2. Press enter.
3. For both row and column titles, type 'title' and press enter.
For column titles only, type columntitle and press enter.
For row titles only, type rowtitle and press enter.

If you have more than one region on a page, check out the JAWS training materials for additional instructions.

This method creates a bookmark in the Excel file. If you do save-as and make a new workbook, the bookmarks come along.

Good luck!

Ann

If you mean the UEFI boot partition, it's just a FAT file system on the hard
drive that you should be able to recreate easily. The operating system
installation tool will then put the necessary system files there. It might
even recreate the boot partition automatically for you - just try running a
Windows installer.
