The link to download an Excel workbook with the legacy Office 2003 actions
seems to be this one:

http://office.microsoft.com/search/redir.aspx?AssetID=AM101938681033&CTT=5&Origin=HA100625841033
As of now, I can just copy and paste (and "unwrap") this link, and I will
get an immediate prompt to download an Excel file.
This file is a workbook with a number of tabs: an Introduction, and then
each tab after that matches its Office 2003 menu bar entry: File, Edit, ...
Is that your toolbar? Can you upload your Excel workbook in some web
site you control?
Also downloaded the interactive guide, but I prefer a more "passive"
content, such as a workbook. Both seem to have the same content.
Thanks so much for all your references!
Still, I have to say that I hold onto my post. None of these resources go
deep enough in the menu to get to the (lack of) gridlines issue. I had quite
a few users that think Office 2007 is broken just because of these gridlines.
Frankly, I was surprised there was no posting addressing this specific
question.
But, thanks so much, all in all!

       but I haven't paid that much attention since I already had the spreadsheet.

       Google helps, however. The online interactive reference guide is at
       http://office.microsoft.com/en−us/word/HA100744321033.aspx

       There's another article at
       http://office.microsoft.com/en−us/word/HA100625841033.aspx?pid=CH100487431033
       that has a link at the bottom to an .xls file that may be the one I have.

       There's a download at
       http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=9044790b−4e24−4277−b714−66d7b18d0aa1&dis
       that may be helpful (but it still requires Internet access to be used).

               Sorry if I sound clueless (I am), but where can I download this Excel
               spreadsheet?

       similar.


                                 If you miss being able to see the
                                 "boundaries" of where to type text

       on a

                                 template such as for Avery labels, here is
                                 what you need to do. Those
                                 "boundaries" are called gridlines.

                                 To bring them up:

                                 + Download and open your template. The
                                 only thing you will see is a

       funny

                                 symbol at the top left of your form. That is a
                                 Table Anchor. You can

                        play

                                 with it later, if you need to.

                                 + Look on the ribbon toward the right for a
                                 Tab called Layout, and

       click

                        it.

                                 Should be under a, shall we call it
                                 meta−tab?, called Table Tools. A

                        "new"

                                 ribbon contents should show up.

                                 + On the left, in the Table section of this
                                 ribbon, there is an item

                        called

                                 "View Gridlines". Click it, and your
                                 "boundaries" will show up again.

                                 Made this note as it took me close to 2 hrs
                                 and plenty of detours to

       find
