These instructions walk users through the process of transferring a file created in LUapps to Course Site.  There are a number of ways to accomplish this, but to specifically assist off-campus students, we'll use the following method:  1) save the file to your computer's desktop, and then 2) upload it to Course Site from there using a browser on your computer.

1.  While in Microsoft Excel via Citrix, click the floppy disk icon to open the 'Save' dialog.  (If you've already saved the file previously, click on 'File' and select 'Save As . . .')

4.  Continue navigating by double-clicking on the 'Users' folder, and then to _your_ user folder by double-clicking it.  It will be named with your username on that computer.  In this example, the username is 'dab406'

Navigate to Local Computer Users Folder

5.  Now, double-click on the 'Desktop' folder, typean indicative name for the file, and click 'Save' in the lower right.  Note the path shown in the window's address bar.
