No problem thanks for trying, got a bit tied up with things. Has to smooth out sometime? Will probably just hang where I am at, but least is nice to know another option is out there. Just wish I could get something that compares with Access. Database has to be precise and can not differ when working from one to another! Otherwise, I do just fine with Libre. Was shocked the other day when a place I uploaded my resume was looking for .doc format???? Guess some of these folks will just not let MS Office 2003 go? Very perplexing to me! I guess that is my main problem with all this, am way to used to living in 2013, I just do not want to go backwards to say 2008??? Or 2002? Is a different world and just wish folks would catch up! Probably why I forgot some of that old stuff, just way too far back!!!! Has been nice living in 2013 for this week!

The only Office suite I ever paid for was MS 2007, which I bought on sale after the following release was out.

Was lucky enough to get 2010 with schooling which was paid for by the state. I did have Office 2003 I bought years ago and was just bizzare to see that in all those years was hardly a change at all!!! That is why I mentioned all I did!!! Guess is why I prefer Linux so much, cause change does come!!!! Usually is for the good, too! So that is always a major plus with all this. Got some updates again today for Libre Office. Seems those folks always want to ensure their product works! Judging from the link you had posted, same can be said for Kingsoft!!! This is the type of stuff, that is needed all over. We are all human, if we make errors correct them, do not sit there and insist it is the customer's fault!!!!
