Microsoft Word is a commercial document editing program that is part of the Microsoft Office suite. It features numerous text-editing tools for creating richly formatted documents, along with tools for the use of macros in Word documents. Word's native file formats are denoted either by a .doc or .docx file extension. Plugins permitting the Windows versions of Word to read and write formats it does not natively support, such as the OpenDocument format (ODF) are available. Word can import and display images in common bitmap formats such as JPG and GIF. It can also be used to create and display simple line-art.

IT just installed Microsoft Word 2016 on my computer, so now I have both Word 2013 and Word 2016.  When I double click on a DOCX from within Windows Explorer it launches 2016 even though I:

Used Control Panel->Default Programs->Associate a file type or protocol with a program:

I associated both DOC and DOCX files with "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office15\WINWORD.EXE" which is Word 2013.

Any ideas on how to set a previous version of Word as the default?

Thanks in advance,

I am weary of dealing with web host companies that have creative pricing plans that drive me up a wall. I  would like to know the name of a company that charges ONE rate from the word GO all the way through at least 5 more years of renewals. I am a VERY low user of data. I simply want a reliable host with 24/7 technical help available for photos and emails. Can anyone recommend one or two? I am with one now that is demanding more than DOUBLE what I paid for the first few years! It isn't going to happen.

In the Part 1 one of this question,  als315 helped me to populate [word] column where each word contained in a sample doc file is recorded separately in a new row.
Index  
For this question, I have a 3-page sample doc file and the word column is handled perfectly via the attached MS Access database. Both DB and the sample DB files are attached. The sample doc file is kept in the DB folder.

Question: In addition to item 1 below, could you possibly help me to read items 2 through 6 from the doc file? I have included the portion of the vba code recording the [Word] column which could be modified to do the rest. I also, have included the database itself in case you are more comfortable doing it by trial and error.
 
1- Word (Already Done).
2- PageNo (Must Have this one)
3- ParagraphNo (Optional, if you can do it)
4- LineNoInThePage (Optional, if you can do it)
5- LineNoInTheParagraph (Optional, if you can do it)
6- ChapterNo (Must Have this one)

Dear experts

I have the source document with vocabulary, meaning and its usage, each identified separately.
I need the help of the experts with a macro which can do the following onto a excel sheet:
Step1: Strip the word starting with bold and ending before the colon=>Put this in cell A1=> Example- abstruse (adjective):
Step2: Strip the words after the colon in step1 above but ending in the same line in cell B1=> difficult to understand; incomprehensible
Step3:Move to next line and copy entire stuff after step2 but before the next word beings in cell C1 example=> Physics textbooks can seem so abstruse to the uninitiated that readers feel as though they are looking at hieroglyphics.

Repeat the above steps by moving to the next word accolade (noun): and copying them in row 2 onwards.
The word document has 95 pages in it.
Each page starts with the logo (gif and the name below given in url). This detail need not be extracted.
I sincerely believe there is no copy right violation.
Kindly help.
Thank you

Does anyone know OR know of a good Office 2016 reference book(s) that may have this information and actually other really good AND easy to read/comprehend for Office 2016?

Thank you.

I have the attached doc file in (C:\Book1\SampleText.docx). This sample file has 276 words. I want to...

1) read words it contains one at a time (and eventually in a future question enter them in an access table along with data points described below),
               
2) for each word and its occurrences, I need to read:
     2a- Page Number
     2b- Paragraph Number
     2c- Line Number in page
     2d- Line Number in the paragraph
     2e- Chapter Number (given in the page headers)

I intend to use VBA in Access to perform the above tasks.

Thank you.

I am having issues with Word 2013 grammar checking. An example is when I type the sentence as below:

Great for when all your washing is complete.

Word tells me that "your" should be "you're" is there something wrong with the Word grammar checker or have I got something set incorrectly?

Hi-

I want to Delete Word Bookmarked Text and paragraph Data using OpenXML in .Net.

I have below code using OpenXML and "Content controls". But my plan is to do the same using "Bookmarks".
I haven't found OpenXML solution to edit and delete text and paragraphs using bookmarks.

using (WordprocessingDocument myDoc = WordprocessingDocument.Open(destFilename, true))
            {
                MainDocumentPart mainPart = myDoc.MainDocumentPart;
                DocumentFormat.OpenXml.Wordprocessing.Document bodyDoc = mainPart.Document;
                IEnumerable<SdtBlock> ccBlocks = bodyDoc.Descendants<SdtBlock>();
                IEnumerable<SdtRun> ccRuns = bodyDoc.Descendants<SdtRun>();

                foreach (var item in cBO.map)
                {
                    
                    SdtBlock myBlock = ccBlocks.FirstOrDefault(ccb => ccb.Descendants<SdtAlias>().FirstOrDefault().Val == item.Key);
                    SdtRun myRun = ccRuns.FirstOrDefault(ccb => ccb.Descendants<SdtAlias>().FirstOrDefault().Val == item.Key);
                  
                    Text textContent=new Text();
                    if (myBlock != null)
                    {
                        textContent = myBlock.Descendants<Text>().FirstOrDefault();
                    }
                    if(myRun != null)

Hi,
I need to upload a Word doc from my hard drive to Google Docs to share it. Per the scrubbed screenshot below (cobbled together), I click on the hamburger icon on the upper right, but do not see any choices for uploading. I've also tried to drag the doc from Windows Explorer to Google Docs, but to no avail.

Google Docs - How to upload etc.
Accordingly,

1. How do I upload this document?
2. How would I create a folder in which to store this doc?

Thanks,
Steve

I have a memo template in word that is frequently used with nothing but the date and dollar amounts changing.  I'd like for the document to prompt (or put in just one time somehow) a dollar amount and have it automatically populate various tables in the document with that dollar amount (and in some instances it's the inverse of that input amount).  

Can someone help me do this?

Thanks.

I have a user who created a Word document, and embedded several Excel spreadsheets (XLSX) as Objects. When this user opens the Word document, the XLSX files open correctly. When another user opens this same Word document, the XLSX files are seen as Unknown Objects, and do not open. Within this same Word document, there are embedded Word documents (DOCX). These open fine for anyone. It is only the spreadsheets that are an issue.

I have seen this issue myself as well. I attempted to open the embedded Excel spreadsheets with the same result; Unknown Object, and will not open.

Hello,

I am trying to install the Grammarly plugin on a Citrix server for all users.
This is a Word and Outlook plugin (grammar and spell checker).
The plugin will only install in admin mode but will not install for all users.

The plugin will install itself in

C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\\Grammarly\Grammarly for Microsoft Office Suite 

Open in new window


of the admin user account. The .DLL used in Word is the following:

C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Grammarly\Grammarly for Microsoft Office Suite\6.6.116\09D34098D5\GrammarlyShim32.dll

Open in new window


I tried to copy this directory to the same location of a user account.
Then I open word and try to add the .DLL as an addin, but it doesn't work.
No error message, the addin/DLL will just not appear in the list.

I am not an expert with Office plugins, I would like to know if there is a way to activate the plugin for the standard users ?

I have an Microsoft Access Application that generates a contract using Microsoft Access reports.  I would like to setup contract templates in Microsoft Word and then use Microsoft Access VBA to export data to the contract and the Word document needs to be locked.  

I know how to code in VBA to export data to Excel, but I have never done it to Microsoft Word.  Also, I have never setup Word Document templates with fields.  

Can someone help point me in the right direction?  

Thanks!

I do OCRecognition with FineReader. It only highlights the uncertain ain characters with what MS Word recognizes as character:shading (in light cyan color), or at least the character:shading can override/clean this color (and also does the gray shadow custom option that is not in the basic ribbon, while heighlight does not). I want it to paste in Excel, or other places and still keep the uncertaint characters in color. What is a way to batch convert every shading [specific color?] into let's say font color:red or magenta? I believe all formatting in Word is a messy html that could possibly be converted.

I had this question after viewing Auto Close a Microsoft Word document with a VB MACRO.

It was very informative and was a macro for exactly what I wanted.

Unfortunately, when using that code and creating that macro then when I double click on the file then it would only open word and not the file.  
Once word was open then if I were to double ckick on the file, or opened the file from within word, then it would open and work fine.

I do not know if there is any way around this or what is specifically causing this in the macro itself that it does not open the document unless word is already running.

If you have any advice I would be most grateful!

Thank you,


Here is the original Macro instructions:

-Open the document you want to do this to
-From Word, press Alt-F11 to open the VBA/Macros editor (VBE) window
-Press control-r in the VBE to open/focus the Project window
-Look for the Project for the file you want this to happen on (should look like "Project (YourDocumentName)"
-Expand that project if not already expanded
-Expand the "Microsoft Word Objects" folder if not already expanded
-Double click on the "ThisDocument" object in that folder.
-In the code pane that opens up from there, paste in the following:

Private Sub Document_Open()
 StartCheckingIdle
End Sub

-Now, right-click on the ThisDocument object in the …
