SCOUG OS/2 For You - May 1999


 Dear Mr. Know-It-All 

Mr. Know-It-All has the answers to even the really tough questions.


Q.  Dear Mr. Know-It-All,

When I sum a column of calculated numbers in Mesa 2, sometimes the result is off by a penny. I've set the display format to currency. What am I doing wrong?

A.  The display format has no effect on Mesa's calculations. Mesa 2 uses actual values for all. You need to round the intermediate values yourself. For example, if you have the formula:

=B25*.775

This will often result in more than 2 significant fractional digits. Change the formula to:

@ROUND(B25*.775,2)

and your columns will sum the way you expect.


Q.  Dear Mr. Know-It-All,

I just installed an S3 video card in my system and now whenever I maximize a DeScribe window, the display is fuzzy. DeScribe is my favorite word processor. What can I do?

A.  In DeScribe under Options->Preferences->Document, turn on Vertical Rulers. This changes the font sizing and corrects the display. The fuzzy display can also occur for non-maximized windows. In this case, just change the window size enough to correct the display.

Do not try to edit a document while the display is fuzzy. This will eventually crash DeScribe or the Workplace Shell.


Curious or in doubt, you can ask Mr. Know-It-All
OS/2 is his specialty and sharing solutions is his passion
