Having trouble opening your files on campus...

We're guessing the worst thing that could happen to you if you are a student working on an assignment is that you spend hours pounding away on the keyboard at home and when you bring the file in to the university on your memory stick or on a CD, the file cannot be opened. We know this because we have seen many students come to the Learning Resource Centre in such a predicament.

All you have to do is to remember to save the file as a type that can be opened with Microsoft Office 2003, which is the application that we use here at QMU. Just be sure to select the type as shown below:
