When you view a report in SirsiDynix WorkFlows, you can use Excel 2007 to sort the data to make the information easier to read & use. For example, you can sort titles in alphabetical order, call numbers or zip codes in numerical order, or whatever suits your needs.

As a follow-up to a recent Ides post on Sharing Word 2007 Documents, I got a call from a library director — who just migrated from Office 2003 to Office 2007 — asking how she could set it so every Word and Excel document gets saved in 97-2003 format, instead of the Office 2007 format.
To find out how you can do it too, view these brief instructions at the How-To Geek:
If someone sends you an email with a Word or Excel file attachment you're supposed to revise, first save the attachment to your computer before you begin editing it. Then — when you're finished editing it — attach the revised document to your email reply.
If you instead work directly on an attached e-mail file, chances are good the edits you made will be ignored, and when you reply all the person will see is the file as he or she first sent it to you.
