I know it's here somewhere...

Have you ever looked for documentation that you know exists, but haven't been able to find it? Me too. All the time. Here are two "search" related tips.SearchSCLS

Searching www.scls.info

If the info you seek is on the www.scls.info site, you may be in luck. There's a search box on the main page that will search the site and display the results. Hopefully that will get you started in the right direction.

Searching your PC

Did you know that you can search for documents on your PC by name, file type, date modified, and even words or phrases contained within the document?

Just navigate to Start->Search to begin. LINK staff PCs are most likely set to "Advanced Search" by default. Non-LINK PCs may have the search companion enabled. In either case, you should be able to enter your criteria and have a list of matches returned.

If you don't know the exact name of the document on your PC, you can search using wildcards. An asterisk (*) maybe be substituted for zero or more characters.

Ex. *.doc  will return ALL Microsoft Word documents.

A question mark (?) may be substituted for a single character.

Ex. class?.doc will return classy.doc or class1.doc, but not classifications.doc.

More info about searching in Windows can be found here on Microsoft's site.

Very helpful...one thing I have done is to keep a Wordpad list of tips and tricks since I work with many program types and files and am not as organized in my folder system as I (or my boss) would like.
