Gregath has added several more full index to our free index offerings. These are PDF in format and searchable. The goal of these free, personal use, indexes is to allow a reader to see if particular names are covered in books that are in print (various editions). These are found, by title, on our website. Feel free to link to these. Please do not save, print, or reproduce these in any way.
More personal use indexes available free at GCI Monday, Oct 28 2013
October, 2013 Electronic Magazine – Marketing: Mail merge with dashes (-) Tuesday, Oct 8 2013
Plus-4 Zipcode and other dashes
Sometimes basic mail merge has problems with cells that contain a dash (-) such as a plus-4 zipcode (74370-0505) – it refuses to print anything for that area, or switches to gobbledygook. Simple solution for zips – make a base cell for your code and a +4 cell for the additional numbers and when setting up mail merge don’t forget to place a dash between the tags. For small lists and rural areas, some just use the base zip, but that sometimes slows delivery.

If the original work, for reprint, needs updating and it is preferred that new material be included within the original work, the copyright release being sought should indicate updating is expected or acceptable. Once the groundwork has been laid, decisions as to whether to insert new pages, leaving original pages untouched (except perhaps for renumbering), or updating an electronic copy should be made. Even if open ended, unlimited copyright release is given, it is never recommended original material be altered – much like cropping a photo for publication should not involve scissors on the original photo or negative. Technology has advanced sufficiently that original material never need be destroyed.
