Been doing more junk in Word and Excel. In Word(Office 98)the number pad is dead, so any data points I add to tables or text body have to be entered on the top row of numbers vs. the num keypad. it sux. I thought I might be able to force the num pad on, but apparently not. I called Apple yesterday and had the poor guy stumped too. After conferring with his co-workers he said "some" apps use the numlock but had no specifics. Instead, I have downloaded all the patches for Office 98 and will install after reading all the warnings. Hopefully that will get me 10-key access again.
