    First port of call

    Well, waddya know.

    I had a problem with some officey bit, and before you could pause to take breath I was up like a startled hare and dashing off a post to the lounge. About halfway through, I realised that maybe - just maybe - Word help had the answer. Gosh, but it did too (most unexpected).

    Anyway, the lounge now appears to have become my first port of call for all help, even in preference to things that I've got on my PC. You hereby qualify for an OfficePleb "Top Place" award. Good on ya.

    I find myself thinking "I could figure that out but why reinvent the wheel." Of course it doesn't hurt my feelings if the responses I get are <img src=/S/rtfm.gif border=0 alt=rtfm width=24 height=23>. Especially since they usually tell you which manual and where.

    I reiterate this lounge is great.

    Ditto..but of course, in my situation...I DON'T know what to look/read in...so The Lounge is 99% the first port of call...case of 'what do you call it that I am looking for - thinking 'logical wording, not tech wording' <img src=/S/laugh.gif border=0 alt=laugh width=15 height=15> <img src=/S/doh.gif border=0 alt=doh width=15 height=15>

    Re: First port of call

    Ever since I saw that smilie ( <img src=/S/rtfm.gif border=0 alt=rtfm width=24 height=23>), I've been dying to see a post stupid enough to justify using it!
    We never really grow up, we only learn how to act in public.
