Hi,

 

I will try to help you with this. Do you have Microsoft Excel installed on your system (it is part of Microsoft Office). If so which version?

I got a spreadsheet ,but how do i look at it and get your answers at the same time ?
Expert:  John D replied 3 years ago.

Were you able to open the spreadsheet and see the small data table inside?

 

If so what does it say in the title bar at the very top of the spreadsheet window?

 

 

Customer: replied 3 years ago.
safari file edit view history bookmarks windows help
Expert:  John D replied 3 years ago.

No that is your browser not the Excel application. Please close all windows and files (including Safari browser) so that you have nothing in view except your desktop. Look on the desktop for the file that I sent you and open it. Check what it says in the title bar at the top, then open your browser and come back here and tell we what it says in that title bar

 

Expert:  John D replied 3 years ago.

 

When you open the file that I sent you, a spreadsheet should come up as shown in the screenshot below.

 

The title bar on top, contains the name of the application (i.e. Microsoft Excel), and the name of the file (i.e. sample spreadsheet.xls)

  • Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill Bill M. Schenectady, New York
