    I don't see "Merge to new document," so I proceeded to customize the ribbon by adding the command button. Well, the customize dialog said I have to add a "new group" to the ribbon. Did that, and then...

    A-ha! I knew there had to be a way ... . Now, wouldn't it make sense for this message box to give some helpful information—such as what you just wrote—instead of that "you can't get there from here"...

    Can't send a catalog ... to a printer

    I've built a dummy Word document that will create a "catalog" with merge fields that get their data from an Excel file. The Excel sheet has just four records. I went through the steps, and I can...

    Thanks, RG. I'm looking for anything that will work, and simpler is better. A "Report Sheet" is a totally new thing to me. I'll need to read up on all that—looks very interesting!

  9. Should I install Java on new Windows 8.1 machine?

    I've just bought a new Windows 8.1 laptop for my granddaughter. I poring over it and, to my surprise, there's no Java! Every Windows machine I've owned or used has had Java, but I don't remember ever...

    Mike, you and others have given me more information than I ever expected! I thank you. The business in question, as I said at the outset, is very small. There's no shipping. Just one customer gets...

    In fact, Mr. Jim, this is one approach I've considered—very simple and straightforward. I like the Access idea, but the people who will use whatever I put together are emphatically not prepared to...

    Chris, this is one of the most interesting replies I've gotten. I know almost nothing about Square beyond the fact that my friend can now accept credit cards. (Getting the Square greatly enhanced his...

    Rules for Office 365 Business or Personal?

    A friend who owns a small business has decided to subscribe to Office 365. I've built for him an Access database, so he needs more than the Office 2013 Business version on his computer. His business...

    Good point about the Android OS. I looked very briefly at QuickBooks, but I got the impression that it's a bit more tool than he needs. Now, I hadn't looked at the Home and Business line. Thanks!

    I've looked at Office 365 Business and Business Essentials. Anything more robust would be gross overkill for a business this size. We have not discussed a POS system, but I don't think the owner sees...
