Create and Share Office Documents on Facebook with Docs.com

With FaceBook becoming larger than life, the chances of  finding most of your family members, school-mates, colleagues, buddies, friends, coworkers, university mates, or old any other acquaintance is not too difficult. You could easily share media files with them, but exchanging documents was a problem.

There is a solution for this problem, and it is, a result of joint effort of Microsoft fuse lab and FaceBook. They, together, have been able to provide online document editing suite. In a nutshell, it is an office web application which is customized for Facebook users.

Officially, the Docs.com was announced by FaceBook founder “Mark Zuckerberg” on the April 21, 2010, which was at the FaceBook f8 conference. By utilizing the strength of “Office web Apps” and inbuilt office 2010, it enables users to create, edit, view and also share the Excel spreadsheets, Word documents, OneNote and PowerPoint presentations. This move brings in convenience for the FaceBook users to start using office documents, and makes it easier form them to share those documents with anyone listed in their contacts.

The application also allows for uploading office documents from the local computers. The saved files and documents will be securely hosted on cloud computing servers, and they can be shared with friends very easily on FaceBook.

Docs.com enables users to mark the files as private documents. Such documents can be managed only by the account holder or by the people who have been assigned with the editing rights. You could easily add more editors by using a button that is available on the right side of the documents.

Docs plug-in with Facebook, also allows users to find the document shared by his or her friend on their wall post. They could also share it further. You can also incorporate a new tab on profile, which will contain the details of shared documents with the friends.

Therefore, Docs are able to take the benefit of common features of Facebook such as hitting “Like” button and comment for public discussions. If you want to use Docs.com, then you have to first request for permission on FaceBook Docs Applications.

You don’t really have to worry about sharing the documents anymore. You could easily upload them to your profile and use them according to your needs.

We feel that this is an excellent feature by FaceBook. Additionally, you might also want to check on Google docs which allows for similar features but from your Google account. Here Facebook is a better option because it happens in a closed environment, but if you use Google docs feature, there are lot of over heads when it comes to sharing !

Also, we feel that it is better to download the document to your local computer, do your work and then upload them again. This way you will be able to use more office features of Microsoft word / doc,  especially those which are not are not available in their online counterparts. Obviously, Microsoft office in the offline more responds better to your commands.

Use Works Database Converter To Convert Microsoft Works Database (.Wdb) File To Excel Or CSV

Use Works Database Converter To Convert Microsoft Works Database (.Wdb) File To Excel Or CSV

Microsoft Works has been integrated with word processor, database and spreadsheet. It is basically an entry-level home or office productivity software version. Most of the Windows-based computers are packaged with Microsoft Works. It allows the windows users to create their own workbooks, documents and databases. This is more helpful to those users who still do not use the upgraded Microsoft Works.

Now days, lots of users selected to utilize Microsoft Office including all the features along with Word, Access and Excel. Most of us are not using Microsoft Works. When you use the Microsoft Works for very short time and then uninstall it, the files created using Microsoft Works cannot be opened. It happens because of the database which is created in .wdb file extension using Microsoft Works.

Unless any program is installed in the system which supports the Works database file, the file cannot be opened or viewed or extracted and finally it is considered lost. However, Works Database Converter, a third-party program will help you to save the important data present in the database file.

Software utility “Works Database Converter” is helpful if there is a database file which is only created by Microsoft Works. The Works Database Converter utility converts your old Microsoft Works Database (having*.wdb extension) files into a spreadsheet. This spreadsheet is compatible with all editions of MS Excel.

The extraction of the data in the database file is carried out on the basis of ‘best-effort’. If there is only one table of data per file which has to be processed, the converter software works sensibly well. Some numeric fields are affected by compatibility of software.

To run Works Database Converter successfully, Java program must be installed on your PC as the software is Java applet. You may also run this software using Java Webstart application.

Setting To Hide, Suppress Or Remove #DIV/0! Error In Microsoft Office Excel

Setting To Hide, Suppress Or Remove #DIV/0! Error In Microsoft Office Excel

In the Microsoft Office Excel spreadsheet program or Microsoft Excel, when you divide any value by zero (0) or else a blank cell inside the procedure, the cell will shows the answer which displays an error value #DIV/0!, as the answer of the computation.

The error value possibly will present weird feelings to readers particularly whilst the manual or worksheet is still in groundwork. It is also very awkward when you get the “#DIV/0!” mistake value when some formula is applied to several cells by copying and dragging.

This error value is takes place as it is incapable of dividing any value by 0. On the other hand, it’s likely to get rid of or take out the #DIV/0! Error value in the cell intended for unconfirmed or unacceptable dissection method with using IF worksheet utility.

To restrain or suppress #DIV/0 error value or for preventing the error from showing whenever it takes place. Apply the next formula on behalf of the normal division formula:

=IF(denominator=0,"",numerator/denominator)

The term “Numerator” stands for the number which is to be divided, and the “Denominator” stands for the divisor.

Such as, for rule of “A1/A2? (cell A1 divided by cell A2), the rule to go through into the answer cell is like given below:

=IF(A2=0,"",A1/A2)

The rule ensures to make out if the denominator is equal to zero (or is blank). Therefore, an empty unit is exhibited. If not, the unit that encloses the utility will exhibit the result of the rule term after the calculations.

Note:

In order to view other data in the unit if the divisor is empty or zero, enter the essential data in the rule everywhere, which is inside the quotation marks (“”). If you would like to show text, enter it in between these quotes. If you would like to show something else (values), you could enter the values in place of the quotes.

There is another IF worksheet formula which can be operated by using the “ISERROR” situation.

Following is the syntax designed for the formula bit is:

=IF(ISERROR(numerator/denominator),"",numerator/denominator)

Such as,

=IF(ISERROR(A1/A2),"",A1/A2)

Over here again, to exhibit extra information lying on the units, if the computation answer is wrong, then alter the value of the core limit (text string needs quotes).

After entering the mistake treatment method as per the instructions given above, you can drag in order to apply the rule to affect to other cells, and the created rule will automatically be applied to them as well.
