[bksvol-discuss] Re: a really tough decision to make...

Hi Valerie,

        I don't know if the commands to open menus will work the same in
Word 2007, but pressing alt+a will open the tables menu in Word 2003, once
you have text selected to convert either from or to a table.  Will that
maybe open it for you too?

Mayrie

Word 2007 has no menus; just ribbons. YUCK!  I will poke around and see if I
can find them.

I hate the ribbons!  If I could go back to 2003, I would!
