    Actually only three. I'm working on a Physics lab report, and I'm new to using Word for something like this.

    First, I need to know how to display a number in scientific notation.

    Second, how to import an AutoCAD .dwg file

    Third, if any additional software is required to use the equasion editor, or, how to enter it.

    Any and all help is greatly appreciated!

    Well...in Excel, it might look something like 1.23+E, so why not just type it? Otherwise, can you provide a link to some website that shows a sample of what you want to depict?

    Insert-Picture-From file. If it doesn't work, you may need to export from Autocad to a different format, or you may need a 3rd party app to do it for you. I used to get DWG files, but Word wouldn't recognize them...of course you could TRY changing the extension, but it likely wouldn't work.

    Even their converter pack at http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;212265 only has DXF format.

    I don't understand this question. Can you use the equation editor? Insert-Object...and it's in the list if you did a FULL install of Office or Word.
