Hi,
I have both Windows XP and Office XP. Currently, I'm working on a Word document in which I need to set the margins all around to 1.5". My software, however, is only giving me measurements in cm.
I tried, following some advice, to go into my computer's control panel to regional settings, and then to the numbers tab. Unfortunately, my computer has no numbers tab. It only had a general, languages and advanced tab.

Any help would be appreciated.
Thank you.

If all else fails just do the conversion off line and enter it as Centimeters.

1 Cm = .3937 inches

2.54 cm = 1 inch

1.5 inches = 3.81 cm

In Word XP, on the Tools menu go to Options- General - Measurements and change from cm. to inches.
