- Solving the Excel #VALUE! Error
Subscriber Tim S. wrote about an oft-frustrating error in Excel. It’s not that an occasional error is aggravating. The problem is when you’re building a spreadsheet into which you’ll enter or paste data at a later time.
The calculations that try to use those cells that are currently blank, will often display Excel errors, such as the ones about which Tim wrote:
First let me say I love receiving this!!
Do you give tips on excel spreadsheets? I keep having “#VALUE!” appear in cells if and when the range of cells within the formula are blank. Is there a shortcut or tweak I can add to the formula […]
- Outlook Express Now Spell-checks in French?
Subscriber David H. had a strange problem, or at least one that always seems strange when it happens to you:
Have a really weird situation on my XP machine — Outlook Express. Started last week — when I use spell check, the language is French?!?!?!
I went up to :
Tools-Options > Spelling
and sure enough, it is defaulted to French. When I use the drop down button, the only choice I have is French.
How could such a weird situation take place? […]
This Week Online — Blast From The Past
A Look at Articles from Past Newsletters
As I recently wrote, I have finally bought a notebook with Windows 8.1 on it. After all the things I had read about Windows 8, and the improvements in Windows 8.1, and the further improvements of the Windows 8.1 Update, I took the step […]
Subscriber Gary Cady has a nice system that he was ready to migrate to Windows 8, but some of his hardware wasn’t quite so happy with the change:
Hi Terry, thanks for the newsletters. I have a rather confusing problem.
I have an HP HPE h8-1237c desktop computer with: 10GB of RAM, 2-TB HDD, Intel Core i5-2320 Quad-Core processor, an 802.11 Wireless b/g/n PCI-E Mini card and LAN: 1000-Base-T.
This is connected wirelessly to my HP ENVY 114 e-All-in-One Printer — D411c through my N750 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Router. All works well when Windows 7 Ultimate is installed. I never lose my wireless connection to the printer.
But, once I installed Windows 8 Pro, I could print to my printer a couple of times then the printer said it was "Offline" […]
Unless you’ve been living in a cave for the last few months, you should be well aware that there’s a major change in Windows XP’s status coming soon.
On April 8, 2014, Microsoft will discontinue support of Windows XP SP3, the final service pack version. Support for earlier versions of Windows XP (without any service pack, or with service pack 1 or 2) have already been discontinued.
So, what does end of support for XPSP3 mean? Especially, what does it mean to me?
It means that Microsoft will stop doing updates for Windows XP, even security updates […]
With the advent of Office 2007, Microsoft introduced the Quick Access Toolbar. Located on the top line of the Window, above any other toolbars, the Quick Access Toolbar initially has very minimal functionality. But, it can easily be customized by you to add your favorite functions within that program.
The Quick Access Toolbar is different in Excel, Outlook, Word, PowerPoint, etc. That is, each has its own Quick Access Toolbar that can be configured independently. You don’t have to make any changes to it, but changes in one program are independent of the Quick Access Toolbars in the other Office programs […]

I love the redesign of my Terry’s Computer Tips web site — it makes article posting and maintenance much easier than before. I’m glad I switched to WordPress and the Genesis Framework. On my Terry’s Computer Tips site, I’m using the base Genesis Framework with a child theme of my own to customize it.
