Hello, I was just wondering if anyone could help me with a computer issue regarding the beginning of my training here. I don’t seem to have the proper program to open the files which contain the student workbook and introductory course. I’m pretty sure you need Microsoft Excel to open the workbook file, but as for the .pdf file the course uses I have no clue. Can someone computer-savvy please help me sort out this issue?
What programs do you have to view documents with? Are you using microsoft works? An apple product? You an always download open office, which is free and will read the standard documents, including excel documents. You can find it here: http://www.openoffice.org/
Download adobe, I’m really surprised you don’t have it since it comes with computers the majority of the time and is used in so many places. Once you have this you’re set, since all of our workbooks are in pdf (adobe) format. The worksheet is the only exception and that can be changed to a different format if necessary. However, the ability to read standard microsoft documents is pretty important so I’d download open office so you’re ready for future needs with other websites and schooling as well.
