    From the extension on the file name of the download it looks like it was made in Excel but a newer version. If the originator would save it as a older version of Excel then more people can open it. I had the same problem with a co-worker of mine. I have Excel 2000! It's hard to imagine it's 10 years old. Works for what I need to do.

    Hello

    On Page 1 (one) I had posted the acronyms in a few different formats for you to download.

    Other options are:

    I can send you a PM with the list with instructions on how to get them on your own computer.
    You private message (PM) me with asking me to email it to your home address!

    I hope that this is helpful to everyone out there!

    I don't have all the acronyms remembered, I still have to look them up! :oops: As there are 9 pages worth with 340 plus acronyms! Some will come with ease, while some you will have to look up over and over! :!: However that is the FUN in it!

    WOW! (that stands for WOW!) lol

    It's faster for me to type out the word then it is to figure out some of what they all stand for.

    But it is interesting to see just how much we have shortened our spelling for the sake of being faster and then we also wonder why our kids don't know how to spell. Two ways to look at things I guess.

    I'll have to print it out LTR - NTN (No time now) :lol: :lol:

    You know, I have to agree with you! Granted it's much easier to write lol than laugh out loud, or HAND for Have A Nice Day!

    So in short, I must say that I am a fence sitter on this one! LOL :thumbup:

    Have a great day!

    All I did is take what someone else had already done and changed the format for everyone to be able to read and use!
    I too am still puzzled by some of the acronyms!

    almost everything used here is used elsewhere in texting. here is a list of all texting acronyms. what we use can be found alphabetically. ignore the rest.
