Arabic numbers

Q: Arabic numbers


I have a form where two languages be entered at the same time, I have got the words and text entered in english and arabic , but when it comes to numbers and dates , it just stays as english . I tried through the control panel and change the neccassary but still the numbers stays english. If I completely in the control panel changed to arabic, all the english date and numbers are in arabic.

Is there a way that when pressing the ALT SHIFT the numerical also change to arabic ( text is fine in arabic ).

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Arabic numbers

First, what program are you using?

it happens when you dont have an arabic font installed and selected as your text style. For example, if your default font is Times and you switch to arabic keyboard, it will let you type arabic but won't type the arabic numerals.

if you are typing in word, try to change over to an arabic font (not Adobe Arabic).

P.S. you will be able to type english numbers when you switch the keyboard to english and your font is an arabic font.

I need a smartphone that I can put a document with addresses and phone numbers on and the smartphone will hyperlink the number straight from the document.

I currently use iPhone 3gs and a app (Documents by Savy Soda) and it works: wifi doc to phone; open app; open doc; touch phone number and WaLa! it calls the number

I tried Windows phone thinking with Word and Excel on it, the phone would call from the document. NOT! I sent a file to a friend who has and Android phone and it won't do it either.

I'm not fond of Apple, so my question is:


Moderator note: drgerry, no need to shout.

A:Smartphone that will hyperlink phone numbers from document?

Stick with the iPhone then. But I know with Gmail if you open a doc with cell number on it will launch Android phone apk. I haven't tried that with Window smartphone with Gmail.

I was having some trouble with my graphics card and borrowed one to test from a friend, the thing is after i checked the Windows Indexing numbers i was surprised to see the 'smaller memory' card had a higher score and wanted to know how the scores are marked on the graphics side.

My card is a ASUS EAH 4350 1Gb Silent card and had a Graphics score of 3.8 and a Gaming Graphics score of 5.8

Friends card is nVidia Geforce 8600 GT 256MB and has a Graphics score of 5.9 and a Gaming Graphics score of 6.4

I thought mine having larger memory would of been a higher score but apparently not?

A:Win 7 indexing graphics numbers

memory is only a part of the card more is not always better the other card is better overall for gaming imo.

It took me all day to figure it out but I finally got my printer to share from my PC to my Macbook...but the only problem now is that when I print from my Macbook my printer just prints out random strings - letters and numbers. It also will just constantly spew out these pages - it doesn't stop unless I cancel the print. Doesn't matter what I print. I read on another forum that it might be related to missing fonts, but I can't verify this. Any ideas?

I have an HP Photosmart All-in-One C4200 series printer.
Sorry if this is posted in the wrong place.

I have a HP laptop keyboard that isn't responding correctly. It displays a "1q 2w 3e 4r 7u 8i 9o 0p" on the screen when the respective letter is typed. I undestand how the "Fn" key and the "Num Lock" key works but this is not the issue. Any advice to remedy this would be appreciated. I've had this laptop for 18 months and it just started doing this. I can't seem to find anyone on the internet that is having the exact same problem. They only have what appears to be a similar issue but not this exact number letter combination.

I ordered an nvidia fx5200 and it came with some funky dms-59 output connector...tried to check the nvidia site and they say "they don't manufacture cards, only chips" which seems totally wrong, as my card says "nvidia" right on it

anyway, I need a vga connection - which everything I could find said the fx5200 has - but this card only has the dms-59 connector (which seems very rare)

anyone know of a listing of fx5200 model numbers, so you know what to order and what you will get?...I ordered this from ascendtech (which may be part of the problem)


A:Are there model numbers for the fx5200 cards?

They make the GPU but not the actual card. Are you sure that isn't a DVI connector? Did your card come in a retail box? A DVI to VGA adapter usually comes with it but if not, you can buy them separately.

Hello everyone, I hope you can help me here.

Photoshop stopped working on my computer, if I tried to open the program, it would start to initialize and check settings and then it would just disappear. I decided that I should uninstall Photoshop and then reinstall it (which may or may not have been a good idea). Before I unistalled Photoshop I wrote down the serial number which was 20 numbers ( I am absolutley positive of this). After I put in the disc to reinstall, it asks for a serial number but it wants 24 numbers...what is going on? Can somebody please help me? Thanks

In my past I worked in a music store and took a handful of cd's home everyday to put in my computer, most of them are .WAV about 40 or 50K though I do have 15 or 20K MP3's. Is there a program available to sort through all this mess, and maybe help me remove some of the doubles I have recorded. It's becoming a nightmare to deal with, I have 8 250GB usb drives full of music, I figure if I rip the wav's to MP3 I can put the songs on just on or two harddrives, I just need some software that will let me do it in an orderly fashion. Any help will be really appreciated.

Anyone have any idea what I need to do in Windows 10 to get my Numbers Lock to stay on all the time?
Each time I start the system I have to remember to press the Numbers Lock button. On my Windows 7 it stayed on all the time unless I purposely turned it off.
It's no real big deal to push a button, but it's just a pain in the rear to type in a password or user name and discover it didn't work simply because this darn button was turned off by the system.
Oh, I did do a "regedit" and changed the numbers in the box to #2 and restarted the system. When the system restarted the Numbers Lock light was on and I figured I must have fixed it. However when I booted up today it was off again.

Hey all;

Working a mail merge issue in Word 2010 with the data list in Excel 2010. We have a column of truck numbers in one column that fills to a field in the mail merge. The numbers are formatted as 81112, for example. When we have one truck number as shown there is no problem. We have some contractors, however, with more than one truck so the cell contains several truck numbers as, 81112 & 81032 & 82044. When we run the merge the field in the word doc shows a zero. I can't seem to figure a formatting solution to get all three truck numbers to show in the field.

Any help or direction is appreciated.


A:[SOLVED] Mail Merge runs zeros in certain number fields instead of numbers from list.

Hi mduffel,

The problem is caused by the mixture of numbers and text in the same column (anything string containing non-digits is not a 'real' number). When evaluating a datasource for mailmerge, Word queries the first 10-15 rows to determine the type. If the data are all/primarily numeric, the mailmerge will evaluate any non-numeric field as 0. A workaround is to ensure the first few rows have non-numeric data, either by inserting some dummy data rows, or by ordering the data accordingly.

I am creating event tickets and would like to add consecutive #s for raffles. I started with a business card template. I tried to use the page #s in a footer, but each page of tickets carries the same # on all tickets.

I am not very experienced in Publisher at all, and don't know how to create a macro (saw that suggested on the Microsoft website for gift certificates).

Is there a simple solution to this?

Thanks for any help.

Hi all Not sure if anyone here can answer this question Thought I'd ask here before I register on some other forum I've written a book and I'm having a bear of a time with getting the page numbering to work properly Here's what I have Section i Title page - page 2007, Word page properly alternate numbers won't number on the right which is correct ii Copyright page - page number on the left which is correct Section needed to keep the table of contents starting at i i Table of contents - page number on the right correct ii Table of contents - page number on the left correct iii Table of Word 2007, page numbers won't alternate properly contents - page number on the right correct iv Acknowledgements - page number on the left correct v Introduction - page number on the right correct Section After this point all page numbers are on Word 2007, page numbers won't alternate properly the left side So all even pages are incorrect Page - on the left which is correct Page - on the left which is incorrect Page - on the left which is correct Page - on the left which is incorrect If I try to change Page to have the page number on the right side it fixes page and every page after but it causes all the pages prior to Page the roman numeral pages to now be on the right which means all even pages are incorrect The simplest way to explain it is that at the point where I have marked with I have two choices I can have the page numbers alternating before that point if I do this all the page numbers after that point will not alternate Or I can choose to have the page numbers before that point not alternate in which case all the page numbers after that point will alternate I tried adding in a quot this page intentionally left blank quot page to see if this would change the behavior it does not At this point I'm stuck I don't know how to get this weird behavior to stop Any thoughts

Hi everyone and Happy New Year!

Can you advise me why CloudFlare gets in the way so much. It seems to be when I use a VPN and click on a link. For example I clicked on a link in a post in this forum, and instead of the link, I get CloudFlare with the requirement to type in a couple of numbers into a box before I can access the page.

No idea why but it is annoying and unwanted. I believe I am only seeing it when I run a VPN. I tried searching online for the answer, and it seems to be a protective mechanism for websites.

Any suggestions where it comes from?

I have managed to change most of the language options to English under the control panel, but the core of windows is still Arabic, I see this with the welcome message in the beginning and some install/uninstall and error messages.

After contacting Microsoft support, they said that I should contact the manufacturer (Toshiba) and ask for a new OS in English.

Can anyone help me?

I would of thought it was older due to .0002 being earlier than .6402 but would appreciate it if someone with some more knowledge in this are could clarify please. Most of the other software update version numbers I checked seem to be sequentially higher than my existing versions so makes sense to install but a couple seemed to be earlier version so just wasn't sure if should install or not.

I just newly reformatted & installed windows xp onto my computer.

Going through some web pages, everything seemed fine so far; but when i typed in a search on youtube, i got these characters that appear as boxes with numbers in them.

I tried selecting a diff encoding besides UTF-8 from view>character encoding, but i just got similar results...only with different unknown characters/symbols.

Is it possible i can maybe update my fonts/character list to fix this? i figured the character could not be rendered/recognized, because it was not available from the list...

or does anybody have a solution?


A:[SOLVED] Some characters appear as boxes with numbers in them?

If the encoding is correct the numbers indicate that these are japanese characters. Unless you are using a font that is capable of displaying these characters the above will be the result. Most Windows versions will have few if any of these fonts.

By configuring the fonts in your browser you may be able to display these characters. But unless you read the language it doesn't matter.

I would like to get a current year (2010) and a year after it (2011) in Windows Batch's script.

%date:~0,4% works very good and returns 2010 as expected

%date:~0,4% + 1 returns 2010+1

Is there a way to convert string(?) value of %date:~0,4% to a number and add 1 to it as a number?


A:numbers in batch scripts

To add 1 to 2010, you will need to convert 2010 from string type to integer data type. I don't think DOS Command Prompt can handle that easily.

Here is a biterscripting script that can do that.

var string syear ; var integer iyear
set $syear = gettime() ; chex "4]" $syear > $syear
set $iyear = makeint(str($syear))
set $iyear = $iyear + 1
echo "Next year will be " $iyear

That was the novice code. Here is the expert version of the same code, also in biterscripting. It will do the exact same thing.

echo "Next year will be " (makeint(str({chex "4]" gettime()}))+1)

Start biterscripting and enter the above single command. See what you get.

Check out this help page for functions that will make time manipulation a lot easy.

My PC came pre-installed with Windows, and the Windows sticker in the back of the tower has the product key listed. When I run the magical jelly bean program, the product key that comes up is a totally different number.
The product key that comes up for the Microsoft Office I have installed matches with the product key that came in the case with the software (retail).

What gives?

A:Numbers don't match

OEM's like Dell or HP image 1000's of drives with the same image of the OS package MS allows them to do so. It perfectly legal and normal if you should ever have to reinstall the tag on your pc is the number you should use.

I have a IBM ThinkPad was running Win98, but I just upgraded to XP with SP3. The problem I am having now is each I type a character, it turns out a number such as u becomes 4, i becomes 5 and so on....

A:[SOLVED] Characters become numbers


I think the Num Lock key may have been pressed.

You see, laptops don't have a number keypad like desktop keyboards do. Instead, they have secondary buttons.

Much like the numbers 1 to 0 can be change to an ASCII character by holding the shift key, the letter keys can be changed to numbers by pressing the Num Lock key..

Look for Numlk and press it

Can't copy files on wife's computer because all files have odd number/letter file names. example...2c502586a18972ee.
How can I change back to named files I can recognize ? Windows xp operating system. ???? thanks ezjim

A:drive "c" files have strange numbers.

These in the root of C: ?
Those are probably files/folders for windows update patches etc

What's stopping you copy them? They're just the same as if they would be called "file". It's just a name.

I am going to skip the story behind this deal and ask how to get through to Windows and explain my delima I tried to activate [SOLVED] numbers bad XP PRO after a complete transfer from one disk to an oem [SOLVED] bad numbers disk with XP Home I was told that my numbers where bad after trying to activate and that was it I [SOLVED] bad numbers was not transferred or given a chance to talk to a real person just contact vendor to whom sold me the disc I had never had a problem in the past using this product I have had the disc for over a year now with no problems It has been installed several different times on [SOLVED] bad numbers several different computers I had bought the disc along with the sp update install disc It was selling as Windows XP PRO with SP Anyway I do not expect help in a matter concerning bootleg products but would just like to know a number I can use to get hold of Windows support personal and find out what the deal is I can understand to many installs but with that you can at least try and get new numbers and or talk to someone Donk

A:[SOLVED] bad numbers

Donk here again, It sounds as though I may be screwed. I Googled activation and found a site that has explained what the deal might just be. I new the disc had unlimited installs which meant an OEM install disc. Like I said, all had been good for a little over a year maybe two not sure, but they have now put into place a program that limits OEM install disc's. I just happen to have been sold said product. I had also noticed that after trying to return to said site it no longer offers my product, or any product dealing XP, Office, or Vista. I guess when you buy a product for a price that seems to good to be true well... it is. Buyer beware. It's called greed, I wanted something for nothing, and I got nothing.

Hi all,

I have a folder with around 80,000 files in it and would like to move them to 3000 files in each new folder.

Any suggestion?

A:Moving a fix numbers of files to a new folder.

just create your new folders then highlight the files you want and right click and drag to new folder created and select the 'move files' option
depending on how many files and the size of the files moving, it may take awhile for the process to complete every time you move a lot of files to another folder

I have a program written in Delphi which display a result in a box(editbox).
The signs is to big for the box - the last digit disappears. All the other text and numbers are the right size. The program work well on a identical PC with the same OS - Win XP home SP2. It must be something with the windows settings. Grateful for any help.

does anyone know where about in the registry serial numbers are stored.i uninstalled zone alarm pro,removed all registry entries,then reinstalled it a couple of weeks later and the serial was remembered.

A:Serial Numbers

Sometimes when you uninstall a program you have to make sure it deletes entirelly, sometimes they leave the main folder behind and that's why if you try to reinstall it will show you some of the options you had before, this may be the case.

A:Typing numbers instead of letters

Welcome to TSF.

This question should not be posted here. It will be moved.

I think it's probably the keyboard layout. Try going to Start->Settings->Control Panel and double click on Regional and Language Options. Make sure the Regional Options tab is set to English. Then go to the Languages tab and click on Details button. Make sure that the Keyboard has US under it.

A:laptop keyboard typing weird letters/numbers

Hi and Welcome to TSF!

Do you have a secondary keyboard to try?
Relevancy 32.25%

This seems to happen at random times and I cant get rid of it unless I restart the PC, which is what makes me think this is a software, not a hardware problem because my keyboard should be fine really. This only started happening a few weeks after I had made a fresh installation of Windows 7 (previously used XP).

Basically the problem: All of a sudden a random number of keys that are supposed to type letters type random numbers instead. The number of letter keys afflicted on average is probably around 10-30% of the total keys. Which keys are afflicted and what numbers they produce is random.

So when i type "This sucks" I might get instead "th5s 4u34s". Also functions bound to Q in a video game will not function when I actually pres Q in case it would produce a number while typing.

Consequtive numbers appear instead of letters. Using Acer netbook Win 7.

A workaround is by selecting a language in the multi language bar I use; however, when moving to a new text box the keyboard returns to enter numbers instead of letters and selecting a language in the language bar is required again.

This problem exists when using the browsers. MS Word seems not to have the problem. I did not try other applications.

Bought new SONY camcorder. I want to share videos with sources (options are facebook, utube, etc.). When I select video to share, and choose facebook, I must log in to facebook. When doing so, my keyboard only types numbers. But when I use all other sources like utube, the keyboard works fine - uses letters. Even SONY cannot figure this out. Any advise????

A:Keyboard using numbers ONLY in certain areas

Your keyboard switches to numbers on facebook only? I don't see why it should only happen on facebook. Ensure that you do not have "num lock" on when you are on facebook.

If it is only ever facebook that it happens, then it may be easiest to type your username and password in notepad first and then copying and pasting them into their respective fields - discarding the current notepad file afterwards.
