Look up Words or Perform Research Online

Summary: Research stock quotes, word definitions and synonyms, encyclopedia entries, and more from within Excel 2003.

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".
