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.

Hello,

I have a word document with around 300 total pages and 75 text boxes. The text boxes hold a photo and a photo caption. I used this arrangement so that the caption does not split from the image. That part has worked well.

I need to change the border around the textbox. I would like to select all text box at the same time.
I have to believe that WORD has a command or simple means for doing this.

I searched around and find 'solutions'  around what I need but could not locate something solid.

Thoughts?

Thank you in advance

It's easy! Check out this step-by-step guide for asking an anonymous question on Experts Exchange.

On 3 folders out of 100's When sending a attachment (from there 3 folders only) Outlook give a pop that in contains unsafe attachments and outlook user will not be able to open it (basically it drops the attachment before it reaches the recipient's inbox.
Outlook 2010
Window 7
The only thing I can think I did differently with the documents in these folders is that I saved the docs a word doc-then resaved as a pdf-then resaved in the other two folders.

I have a computer that is opening everything from the Network as Read-Only in Word.  I went into the Trust Center and allowed network locations to be trusted, and even added the location to the accepted list.  I saw something about, possibly, a Registry Edit.

I have the exact same settings in Excel and do not have this problem.

I have a personal OneDrive account.  I share it with 'John'.  It seems that when John accesses a file on his laptop (which also syncs with OneDrive), I can see the files that John accessed on his laptop while I am on my laptop.  So, in Word 2016, when I go to open a file all the files we have both worked on display in my recent files list?

Is there a way to change this, so that I will only see my recent files?

Do I have to setup a separate OneDrive account for myself?

I am developing a questionnaire for internal use and looking at various methods of doing so.

The question will have various free text entries, some date pickers and most importantly 12 Yes / No questions.

I have currently looked at 3 applications for this questionnaire and each seems to have a downfall with the 12 questions.

InfoPath
This application seems ideal as I can set the Yes / No options such that they can be only Yes / No and I can count the number of Yes answers for an automated decision based on the questions. The decision can then determine the Submission route/email. I can use Validation rules to check entries before submission.
Downfall - no longer provided after Office 2013 but I hear that something similar may be available through SharePoint. Our organisation does not use SharePoint.

MS Word
Format of questionnaire is easy to manage with tables.
I can insert Check Box option buttons but they are not related to each other, ie I can insert two check boxes in a table alongside the question, one each for Yes or No answers but the user can check both. The count of the check boxes has to be done manually to make the routing decision. The Word document has to be saved and emailed manually.

MS Excel
Similar issue with option buttons as MS Word. If I insert option buttons on a sheet, they all become related and I can only select one button. I can get round this by putting the pairs of buttons on separate sheets ie one question …

Hi,

Here is what I wish to achieve:

I want to automate sending a large number of mails using Word 2007.
First I have the Word 2007 document that contains the basic invitation message.
The invitation message has to be populated with data from a excel sheet containing the columns First name | Last name | Application name.
Next, I would like to bulk send the mail to each of the users containing the application name I'd like them to test for me:

Hi [[first name]] [[Last name]],

I would like to schedule a appointment to test [[Application name]].

Open in new window


What would be the best way to do this?

Since moving to Office 365 I have had very sluggish performance in Excel.  I typicall work in workbooks stored in my one drive folder.
Often, when scrolling through cells with the arrow keys the entire workbook will freeze for several seconds.

I noticed in the File Screen, that I do not show a listing for our One Drive Business ....just a personal one which I do not use.  It also shows 'Loading services' that never changes?   See screenshot.

All shows normally in Word and Powerpoint, so this is just an Excel thing.  I have tried uninistalling and reinstalling Office 365 from the portal, but the problem remains.   I have also tried running both repairs from Control Panel - CHange..... still no different.

How can I correct?

Hello and Good Afternoon Everyone,

          I am in the process of cleaning up a scanned document converted to a word document within MS Word 2013.  At this point, I am stuck with a problem involving a symbol left between 2 lines of text.  I can not exactly highlight it without some text above or below it being selected too.  However, the symbol is on a blank line because the body of the text is double spaced.  

           Any suggestions for removing the symbol without offsetting the content above and below it will be greatly appreciated.

           Thank you

Dear All,
I am new and hope you might help. I use Windos 10 Home and MS Office / Word 2013.

This is the story.
1) I create a Word document on a USB stick
2) I saved the file onto the USB stick.
3) I edited many times the document at different times and in different days but always working on the USB stick.
4) the file was never saved on the hard drive (always edited on the USB stick)

Question:
1) Is there any viable possibility (eg. forensic investigation) that some trace or info of the document (the one that has always been on the USB stick) have been stored in the PC?
2) Should this have happened, where could said traces have been stored (swap files? tmp files? any other location')
3) Could these traces be retrieved somehow (eg. filename or even the contents of the doc file)?

Regards

WS

First I need some advice...

If I have 15 chapters, each with between 5-25 footnotes at the end. Shall I try and keep them at the end of each chapter?

I plan to create a PDF and sell the PDF.

Does the existence of footnotes distract from the next chapter? Or is it a useful way to segment the footnotes?


If so, how do I do this with Word (2017 for Mac)?

Conversely...

If I decide to put them ALL at the bottom, after the final chapter, Word would do this automatically. I could easily update the footnotes, by inserting the Chapter numbers, since al the footnotes should, in theory, be organized sequentially.

What's your advice??

Hello, whenever I scan a large document using Paperport it has a small window that says "Nuance WIA" and it doesn't allow me to use other programs without jumping to the top. Very irritating when trying to process a word document. I have looked through many settings and can't seem to find a way to remove it. Any ideas? Thank you in advance.

Word 2016/Win10:

Hi,

In a longstanding Word document, I saw the following after clicking File.

XML warning.
The doc has no macros (if that would make a difference.) Any idea what the XML represents, or how I can find out?

Thanks,
Steve

Word 2016/Win10:

Hi,

In a manuscript, I have the word "fiance" where the "e" has an accent over it.

When I search on "fiance", it's not found. Doubtless b/c of the accent. Is there a workaround?

Thanks,
Steve

Since we have upgrade to Office 2013 users can no longer open up a Word document with read/write access when another user has the document opened up in read only mode, specifically if the document contains a password to modify the document.

For instance user #1 opens the Word document they get prompted either to enter password to modify or open in read only mode. They click "Read Only", User #2 tries to open the same document and they get a warning that the document is locked for editing by user #1 even though document is read only.

In testing we've done the same exact thing in Word 2010 with the same document and user #2 gets prompted to enter password to modify and they can enter password and edit the document while user #1 has the document opened in read only.

This happens with all documents that we have set up this way, including those that were specifically created in Word 2013.

Has something changed between Word 2010 and Word 2013 that this functionality no longer exists, or are there additional settings that need to be changed to make it work, Any guidance on this issue would be greatly appreciated.

Is there a way to create a drop-down choice menu on a custom tab in Word 2016?  I know how to put custom macros into a custom tab/group but that just puts a button.  I have 15 similar buttons that I want to group into a drop-down menu like style choice or the font size drop-down menu.  Can't figure out how to do it.  Does anyone know how?

I had to reload a HP ProBook laptop using the recovery partition to "out of the box" status.  Now I've updated all the drivers but there is no wireless network available; all updates have been installed also.  In the device manager Qualcomm Atheros AR9485 Wifi Adapter shows that it is working properly.  I've turned on the wireless switch on the PC...still no wireless.  Also I've installed Office 2013 and WORD and EXCEL work fine, but when I try to configure Outlook it tells me it's not connected to the network, even though I'm hard wired and can ping google.  Any ideas??

Client uses Word 2016/Outlook 2016 has an Office 365 subscription. The spell checker keeps forgetting learned words.

File has been deleted and recreated. Rogue entries deleted from registry. Re-creation of RoamingCustom.dic has been invoked through software via Proofing Tools set up menu.

Word 2016 open, spell checker taught new word. RoamingCustom.dic file time stamp changes indicating file has been touched. Outlook 2016 also open, e-mail composed and newly added word is spelled correctly and not flagged as wrong.

Outlook 2016 e-mail composer using RoamingCustom.dic also taught new words. Time stamp of RoamingCustom.dic modified and Word 2016 also knows newly learned word.

Both apps, open at same time with AppData/....RoamingCustom.dic file being modified to prove both applications are teaching the new word to the shared dictionary file. So both applications are clearly touching the same file modifying it, updating it and using the shared file.

Works for a few days then stops working. What is causing the failure?

Many thanks.

We are trying to get Word to add and display currency properly for our European offices.  While I can get a Euro symbol, to appear, I'm having trouble getting Word to add table cells that contain currency in the European format properly.  That format being that commas are the equivalent of decimal points here in the US.  Does anyone have any advice in properly formatting European currency in Word?

FYI...I have already made the suggestion that they insert an Excel Workbook and perform the calculations there (where it works beautifully!).   We have also tried changing all the Region and Language settings and still have issues.  Thanks in advance!
