In the Occupation column I have a places or another persons name rather than an occupation, do I key the place names or leave blank... accross the columns above it says 'Field Supts' maybe this is the occupation of the individuals???

I would not key anything but an occupation in that field. Could you provide a screenshot? It sounds as if Field Supt could be a possibility.

I copied this from Paulmd199 so he gets the credit!

On any version of Windows since Win95.

Hit the Print Screen key, nothing appears to happen, but an image of the desktop has just been copied to the clipboard.

Open up any graphics editor, MS paint is built in, and will do. But so will a couple of dozen more.

Paste the image (ctrl-v). Crop and save.

To upload:

Create a new thread (or reply to an old one)

Type some text in the body of the message. At least one word.

Click on the link that reads "attach a file," it will bring up a button that reads "browse."

Click on the Browse button. This will bring up a dialog that allows you to select a file.

Find your file, click "open."

When you are satisfied with your message, click on "post."

(Sorry I'm late with this as I was away from the computer.)

Or if you have Windows 7 you can use the snipping tool.

You're quick! Looks as though they are "field supts" and there's possibly another section of names with the heading "gangers or gaugers, " next, etc. If so, I'd key them as such, too. (Which ever may come up in the pop up dictionary)
