    I searched the web to find meanings to different abbreviations. This is what I came up with! I did this to understand what people were talking about.

    I got them off various websites, so if there is something that offends someone, let me know and I will delete it.

    I'll try and redo it. Do you have excel as that is what it is in. I will have to do it later though.

    Yeah, thanks. I have been able to figure out most of the abreviations, but this really helps.

    Hi

    You need a program like Microsoft Excell. I can put it in a note pad file for you if you wish. I had a difficult time until I transferred it to a Word Perfect Spread sheet.

    Let me Know!

    I tried to open it in an Excel program but got gobbledegoop... Is it possible to put it in a Word Program? Sure would like to see it. Thanks

    It was only because I figured if I had that much of a difficult time, then why not help everyone else!

    Hope this is useful to all quilters!

    :( Well this old dinosaur does not have those microsoft programs, so I guess I'll guess. I had it before my computer went kAput a few weeks back, forgot to put it on a CD. Most I am learning but I still guess at those acronyms.

    Thanks for trying.

    Blessings,
    Ruth

    These acronyms remind me of the government and all the initials they use.

    Hello

    That would be up to the moderators, the list is about 4 pages long printed, so that would take a ton of space on their server

    Yup, I would have to agree with you! My husband works for the gov't and my son is in the reserves, so one works for DVA and the other one is a RECCE for the DND! I on the other hand is a MOM! Lol
