I use Excel 2000 with Windows 98SE.  I use a Logitech Cordless Mouseman Wheel Mouse.  Like in other applications, I can zoom in and out using the Ctrl key and the mouse scroll wheel.  However, in Excel only, I am limited to zooming in to only 100% - can't zoom to greater than 100%.  

How can I remove this limitation?

TOPIC OF THE WEEK: THANKSGIVING

Dear Subscribers,

If you are like me, reading is the source of great pleasure and relaxation in your life. Help instill this love of reading in your students by participating in this year's NATIONAL CHILDREN'S BOOK WEEK.

"Get Carried AwayREAD", this year's theme for the 82nd observance of NATIONAL CHILDREN'S BOOK WEEK, reflects the nourishment that kids get from a healthy and balanced diet of reading. NATIONAL CHILDREN'S BOOK WEEK is from November 12-18, 2001. Since 1919, educators, librarians, booksellers, and families have celebrated NATIONAL CHILDREN'S BOOK WEEK during the week before Thanksgiving. Check your local library or favorite bookstore for events highlighting children's books. The Children's Book Council (CBC) is a non-profit trade organization dedicated to encouraging literacy and the use and enjoyment of children's books, and is the official sponsor of Young People's Poetry Week and Children's Book Week each year. The Council's Members include U.S. publishers and packagers of trade books for children and young adults.

The Children's Book Council (CBC) has a wonderful website full of many ideas for teachers. http://www.cbcbooks.org/index.html

Do those Banner Ads on pages annoy you and cause concern for you with your students? Thankfully, there are ways to stop them from displaying. Several companies offer easily accessible, downloadable utilities for individual computers. You might want to check out three products in particular: Pop-Up Stopper, Junkbuster, and Guidescope. All block banner ads and can be downloaded free. On occasion, installation can be a little tricky, however. Try to have someone relatively tech-savvy standing by -- just in case!

In January, WVIZ/PBS will be offering 10 online courses for graduate credit. You may view our current offerings at

Have a great week and a Happy Thanksgiving,
Rita Bigham

3. TIPS AND TRICKS
~* ZOOM IN EXCEL WORKSHEETS WITH YOUR MOUSE WHEEL (97/2000)
If your mouse is equipped with a wheel, you probably use it to scroll up and down long worksheets. You may not be aware that you can also use it to change the zoom percentage for your view of the worksheet. To do so, hold down the [Ctrl] key and move the scroll wheel. Rolling the wheel down decreases the zoom percentage and rolling up increases the percentage. Unfortunately, the maximum you can zoom out to is 100 percent, so if you need to go beyond that limit you must use one of the traditional zoom methods. If you'd rather have your mouse wheel zoom by default, choose Tools | Options from the menu bar, switch to the General tab, and select the Zoom On Roll With IntelliMouse check box. After you click OK, rolling the wheel zooms and rolling the wheel while holding down the [Ctrl] key scrolls up and down in a worksheet.

But if i click in excel then use a CTRL + scroll the wheel i can zoom in and out to 400%
