Despite this difficulty, the benefits far outweigh the challenges.  Having a centralized repository of information from an organization’s numerous disparate information systems provides many unique opportunities to present data in new and useful ways.  It greatly accelerates the speed to production for new reporting. It also enables an organization to put information into the hands of the business users, enabling them to create their own reporting. Where do I start? The first step to the implementation ...

Word provides a handy shortcut that allows you to quickly jump to either the top or bottom of a column in a   table . This can be quite helpful, particularly if you are working with very long tables. If you press  Alt+PgUp , you are taken to the first cell in the column, where the insertion point is placed just before the first character in the cell. Likewise, you can jump to the last cell in a column by pressing  Alt+PgDn . This moves the insertion point to the last cell in the column, where it is positioned just before the first character in the cell. If you try to use these shortcuts outside of a table, they have no effect. From   WordRibbon.Tips.Net

Email Reading Format in Outlook 2016 is Stretched-Out   Reading emails had become a chore because, for most of my emails, I have to use the scroll bar to read the content. The email body is positioned at the center, with a large amount of space on both sides of the reading pane, resulting in having to constantly use the mouse to scroll to the right to read them.  This seems like a known issue when viewing HTML emails in Outlook. "Microsoft has noticed this issue and our product team are working on it." I hope this issue will be fixed soon. BUT – the following works for me:  Go to File > Options> Mail. Uncheck the option "Reduce message size by ...

Hello - We've had Office 2016 and Windows 10 in place for months now, and we continue to experience the grayed-out print button in Outlook.  For us, the issue occurs with any version of the HP Universal Print Driver.  If we switch to another driver, the issue goes away.  We'd really like to resolve this with the UPD since our tray settings and macros are all configured with that driver.  So far HP and Microsoft have not been much help, essentially blaming the other for the issue. I know others have experienced this, and I'm just wondering if there are any further developments.  Has anyone made any progress on this issue?  Thank you!!
