To pull up the definition of a word inside a Microsoft Excel 2003 spreadsheet without relying on a desktop dictionary or visiting a website, just highlight a word with your cursor, right-click, then choose "Look up...". A "Research" pane to the right of your document will open up, displaying the highlighted word's definition.
The Research Pane also allows you to:
* Scroll down and find synonyms and antonyms by clicking "Thesaurus".
* Translate the word to different languages by choosing "Translation".
* Display stock quotes from MSN Money or company profiles from Gale.
* Research terms at eLibrary, the Encarta Encyclopedia, Factiva, or MSN Search.
You can also access the Research Pane by clicking "Tools" - "Research".
Press the "print" button on your browser or select "File" - "Print" to print this tip. Then, return to Microsoft Excel 2003 Misc - Look up Words or Perform Research Online.
