OK, here is a stupid question. I have looked at the spreadsheet of the items inventoried. I want to print some of them out to use as working copies BUT for the life of me I have figured out how to accomplish that task. Normal printed execution just prints one column of gibberish. What am I missing?

This coming up Monday the 23rd of December at 10:00 we will be having another workday, inventory day, to add to our ever-growing items that were donated here recently. Today we identified some areas that can be streamlined to further assist in this process. We were hoping that some of the other members of the club would step up to the plate and help with the inputting of the data, obviously not. We will be moving on though in light of this.
Harold has graciously printed out more of the labels we have been using. This will assist in adding the next batch of items to our inventory. This inventory has also brought to our attention the need to make sure that, Tubes, if you will, do not fall into the category of trash and end up in the dump. Some of these items have shown to be very very valuable to the Ham Radio community as well as antique radio collecting/restoring. The funds generated from this little expedition will pay for at least one radio I think. That makes it worth it in my book! One of our biggest goals was to restore the donors’ faith in Ham Radio, from what I have been led to believe we did accomplish this.
Radio Fiesta is coming up, and this Monday we will also try to determine what will and what will not be taken to radio fiesta. This onslaught of tubes has made us take note of the value of these items and what we should do with them to keep the “good ones” in circulation. Even the bad ones could be inserted into a non-working radio set to just show what was once used to make long distant communications possible. I guess all they have to do is glow! At this point in time, I think it would be in our best interest to solicit these tubes to the on-line tube re-sellers to get us more bang for our buck and keep our involvement to a bare minimum. But an inventory needs to be done to determine what we do have. Some of the items that we are putting into the system need to be either trashed or recycled. Most of this should be on a case by case basis to be determined at the time of picking it up and inspecting it. For all practical purposes once an item is handled a dispensation should be made as to what happens to it. Handling items numerous times is basically bordering on insanity! We need to get a little better at this.
Any and all who wish to join us this coming up Monday please feel free to do so…
