Hope someone can help, my mum is in a care home, and sometimes they play bingo, I am usually there to help her, she is partially sighted.
I am trying to make large squares on an a4 sheet, so I can send them to the home for her.
Every time I try I just get oblongs.
Can anyone advise please.

Many thanks

I take it that you are doing this on a computer, do you have excel? You could do it on an excel spreadsheet.

How many squares do you need in each sheet Junie I will make you one and if you PM me you e mail address I will send it to you to print out.

You could make a table if you have Microsoft word.
Make the cells the same width and height.

Scentia Sun 29-Mar-20 12:59:09

Is this the sort of thing you mean, do you need numbers in it?

Yeah I am still trying.
Not good at this, smile

Hi Scentia

Yes like that, but I am trying to make it
As big as I can.
You have a lovely name


Scentia Sun 29-Mar-20 13:21:41

Will you be printing it on an A4 sheet?

Hi all
Thanks all for your help.
Think I need computer lessons.
I have not used my laptop for a long time, as I use my phone for nearly everything.

Thanks again to you all
Back to keep trying

Perhaps someone can PM you and attach a copy? Or are you enjoying the challenge?

Marydoll Sun 29-Mar-20 13:31:05

If you PM me with what you need, I can email it to you, as an attachment, Junie.

You can't attach to PMs, needs an email address.

junie1 Sun 29-Mar-20 13:31:32

Yes Scentia

Marydoll Sun 29-Mar-20 13:32:23

It will take minutes to do.

Hi Marydoll
I think I need a refresher course
On excel or something.


Marydoll Sun 29-Mar-20 13:40:34

I wouldn't use Excel, I would make a table, that way you can fix the size of the boxes and add any graphics if necessary.

I was always making things like that in my teaching days.

junie1 Sun 29-Mar-20 13:45:28

What would you use Marydoll

junie1 Sun 29-Mar-20 13:47:51

Hi Sussexborn
It is a challenge, I need to learn
Will look for a refresher course
As we are in lockdown

Marydoll Sun 29-Mar-20 13:50:57

Microsoft Word and insert a table.
If you can wait until later, I will send you a screenshot of how to do it.

junie1 Sun 29-Mar-20 13:57:09

Ah Microsoft Word
Will give it a go
Thanks Marydoll
