  • Try this. Highlight a group of cells in Access (might also work in Excel) and you can paste them into Wordpad! It even copies the column headers. Great for copying and pasting data from a file - you can focus on just the data you need, without having to swap programs. Example screenshot.
  • (Added: 11th July 2004) Highlight some lines of text, hold down CTRL + SHIFT and press L more than once. You now have a range of list styles you can cycle through, not just bullets. These include alphabetical list markers and Roman numerals.
