July 2004 Efficiency Newsletter

Technology does not create productive people. We do.

This has been another exciting month here for SET. Fortunately some of that was spent on vacation; if you haven't been to a beach with warm, clear water then you're working too hard. Call us, work smarter & faster, then take a break.

We've been working on a lot of template development in Excel-if you have needs for beautifying and improving the functionalities of your Excel spreadsheets then give us a call. There is still room available in the upcoming National Business Institute seminar I'm delivering with Scott Stevens, MLS, to present internet research tips and techniques. More information is available here: http://snipurl.com/nbifast.

Tip of the Month

Saving multiple attachments at once in Outlook

We all receive messages with attachments. Somewhere along the line you probably learned the lesson that you should save attachments to your file system, rather than leaving them in your inbox. This way you can always locate the files and modify them without losing your changes. However, it can be tedious to manually save ten attachments that come in one email.

What you may not have tried is the Outlook command to save all the attachments at once. Once you've opened an email message in a separate window, you can select File and choose "Save Attachments..." Outlook will prompt you for a directory to place all the attachments at once. Press OK. Now you've saved yourself a bunch of steps!

Tool of the Month


Most of us turn to Google for internet research, and rightly so. Google does an excellent job of searching websites, Adobe Acrobat files, and many other file formats throughout the web. However, much of the internet is only accessible by being searched directly. For instance, Google cannot be used to search U.S. Copyright Records-you have to visit the US Copyright Records office website: www.copyright.gov/rb.html. Sites like these, which can only be searched directly, compose what's known as the invisible web.

Fortunately, one of the handier lists of the directories on the invisible web is available for free at www.invisible-web.net. Try it when you're looking for public records, real-time data or other information that isn't readily available on the general web.
