Posted by Taylor Ling On September - 12 - 2010

Paper wastage in printing is an issue that always bugged many industries, whether they are aware or unaware about the wastage, which can have an impact in environment and economy. According to a study, a typical service industry worker uses about 10,000 sheets of paper for printing every year, or one sheet every 12 minutes. And you’d surprised to find out that 90% of those printed papers are only used for a short while; the majority of them will be discarded without being reuse. Thus, to avoid and reduce such unnecessary wastage, there are some software built to assist the computer user to print smart, which will be introduced later in part 2.

Before going into the software that can assist in smart printing, there are a few techniques/tips for everyone which can be applied prior to any printing in order to reduce paper wastage: Read the rest of this entry »

Posted by Thomas On September - 9 - 2010

This is part two of a new series I’m writing, teaching you how to get more functionality out of your Excel. If you are not familiar with Macros I suggest you read the first part, before beginning on this one.

In Part Two…

In this part we are starting off  using some of the commands you should know, and then create a Macro that decide filename, which folder to use, before exporting the document to PDF-format. I am also going to show you how to create a button to trigger the macro.

As in the first part, I am using Office 2010. Even though the code and programming are the same in older versions of Excel, the images and buttons may differ from what you see on your screen.

Advanced Macros in Excel—Beginner’s Guide [Part 1 of 2]

Posted by Thomas On September - 8 - 2010

IF you are to really learn just one Office application, then you should choose Excel. Because it is the most versatile and powerful of all the Office applications.  With Excel you can almost get rid of the other Office applications all together. A side from the normal calculations you can write letters, create databases with powerful reports and analyze tools, create useful forms for everyday chores, and program powerful small applets. Within certain limits of course.

Using Advanced Macros

Most users have come across the word MACRO, one time or another using Excel. A macro is a recording of sorts, that stores your actions, step by step. Macros are used to eliminate the need to repeat the steps of common tasks over and over. Tasks such as adding or removing rows and columns, selecting a range of cells, or changing textcolor, fonts etc. In Excel, macros are written in Visual Basic for Applications (VBA). For those who cannot write VBA code, Excel allows you to record a series of steps – using keyboard and mouse – that Excel then converts into a macro.
In a few upcoming articles I am going to show you how you can create powerful and effective macros that hopefully will take your Excel experience to another level. How about letting Excel Copying Sheets, renaming them, Choose filenames, choosing between file locations and save the document as PDF sound ?

Sounds interesting ?
