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.

I am given a document that has 72 pages worth of employees, salaries, and jobs. I know how to scan it in and I am putting everyone that works for the same company together. This is in the 4 word in each sentence. I am using if statements to see if it equals "police" that it will write to a file police. I am stuck on how to write the array back to a string and then put it in a file that is designated for each company.

How do I reprint the array I checked as the string it started as?
How do I get it to print to a document called "police" or "Engineer"?

File does not have to be created before hand supposedly.

I need a progra to sort and put them in different files with what company they are workig for.

PowerPoint (Mac) How to Expand/Collapse All Sections??

I have a pitch that grows and grows, now with dozens of sections. Sometime, I need them all expanded, like when I want to search on a key word. Other times, I want them closed.

Is there a menu option or keystroke that does this??

Thanks

"I am using MS word. I run a report every month that is generated as a Word Document. The 1st part of the document is a Table, I then need to write an analysis of the Staff member based on Data in the table. Rather than re type the Data I would like to know a way that I can have MSWORD get the data from the table and insert it where I want it. Is this possible? It all happens in the Word document and using EXCEL is not an option. it MUST be MSWord.. Thanks"

Office 2016/Win10:

Recently, when I run a spellcheck, the ADD TO DICTIONARY button has been grayed out in Word. It was also grayed out in Excel, but came back after I rebooetd.

Has anyone else experienced this issue recently? Maybe there's been a problematic Microsoft update? Is there a fix/workaround?

Thanks,
Steve

Breaking up my PowerPoint seminar

What features exist in PowerPoint to organize my seminar? I see how Sections can be made and named. How can I use those sections to:

- Create an outline?
- Skip a section to the following section?

What other methods exist for this in PowerPoint?

And what other things can be done with Sections in PowerPoint?

Thanks.

I have an Excel spreadsheet with a named range which feeds into a combo box in Word.  I need to have multiple copies of this combo box which takes the data from the same named range in Excel.  The problem I am experiencing is that VBA automatically populates the first combo box but does not populate the other combo boxes.

Private Sub Document_New()
'Populates combo box with contents of an Excel named range.
 Dim xlapp As Object
 Dim xlbook As Object
 Dim xlsheet As Object
 Dim i As Long
 Dim subject As String
 Dim bStart As Boolean
 Dim ffield As FormField
 Dim oCC As ContentControl
   On Error Resume Next
   Set xlapp = GetObject(, "Excel.Application")
   If Err Then
      bStart = True
      Set xlapp = CreateObject("Excel.Application")
   End If
   On Error GoTo 0
   Set xlbook = xlapp.Workbooks.Open("C:\combo file.xlsx")
   Set xlsheet = xlbook.Worksheets(1)
   With xlsheet.Range("A1")
      Set oCC = ActiveDocument.SelectContentControlsByTitle("TestComboBox").Item(1)
        For i = 2 To .CurrentRegion.Rows.Count
          Debug.Print .Offset(i - 1, 0)
          oCC.DropdownListEntries.Add Text:=.Offset(i - 1, 0), Value:=.Offset(i - 1, 0)
        Next i
   End With
   xlbook.Close
   If bStart = True Then
     xlapp.Quit
   End If
End Sub

Word and Excel hangs when saving as on iMac I just get the spinning circle forever.

It was working perfectly, but my iMac died and I re-installed OS.

This then happened immediately.  I installed from Office 365.

On the left it has recent folders as just onedrive.  But I do not use onedrive and I have tried uninstalling that.

it will save an existing document, but not a new one.

I have also tried uninstalling Word and Excel as well.

Thanks Terry

The macro that we have been using to format a word doc is adding an extra space now. When we ran it in Word 2002 it works just fine. We are now using Word 2010 and this extra space gets created.

Sample File to be formatted - format.txt
format.txt

Macro Code - macro.txt
macro.txt

What it looks like currently - Current.txt
Current.txt

This is what it should look like. - Needed.txt
Needed.txt

Hi - We are having a strange issue with our company policy, and several other word docs. We are storing it on a server, where if we open the file on the server, it opens and looks normal. If we open it on a computer, the entire document looks like its defaulted to a "bar code" font, and the font name is still the same and hasn't changed on both server and PC! No idea why this is happening - please see attached pic - any help is appreciated.

Hi. I’m getting the Error “Excel couldn’t start last time. Safe mode could help…” “Do you want to start in safe mode?”

I click Yes and nothing happens. I’ve tried everything with this problem, Repair, Uninstall/Reinstall O365, Reboots, etc. Has anyone had this nasty problem? I have the same problems with Word

When opening Word 2016/Office 365 version, the document opens and displays on screen, but there are two smaller white windows (looks like a resized Word doc with no boarders) behind it.

I cannot move them or close them from the screen.  When I hover over the Word icon in the tray, it shows 3 windows.

 I can click on the X in the two white windows when hovering over Word icon in the system tray and can close them.

They do not return if I open a second Word doc during the same session.  It only happens on a new doc opening.

This is happening on a Surface Book with two external monitors, running Windows 10 Pro with all updates installed.  

Ran Office 365 updates, did not help.  

Any help is appreciated.

Hello All.
I am working with a Visual Basic Studio Application to Find text in a Microsoft Word Document.  It was written by a guy who is long gone from the company.  
Since I did some Excel VBA, I was given the task of trying to work on this Application.  I have not done actual Visual Basic since the year 2000.

Please be patient and give me time to work on any submitted attempts.  I am rusty in VB and I will need time to check your attempt with his code without messing the whole thing up.

What Should be happening:
It should be looping thru MS Access Query to find Text (Acronyms) in the MS Word Document.  When is finds the text, it captures the Page Number from the footer.
The text is in the Document several times.  It should be capturing the text from the very first page it appears.  
Example:   The Term "ACBM" is in the document 10 times.  It is on Pages 7-31, 7-33,  7-35 and A-9.

The Problem:
It will loop thru the Document and find all 10 and capture the page number.  The problem is, on the VERY FIRST FIND and PAGE NUMBER captured is wrong. Once it starts looping thru the document, it finds all of them correctly.
It is very random.  It will show the very first find being on Pages 7-30 or 7-38.  It never shows 7-31 as being the first page.  I wrote code the compare the lowest page numbers as it looped.  But when the first page number it finds is before the actual first page, the code is useless.

Is there a way to search the MS Word Document and get …

Word 2016/Win 10:

All of a sudden, after I had to reboot my system: When I press CTRL-F, I used to see the FIND dialog box. But, now I see the navigation pane on the left of the screen.

How can I restore Word to function as before? And, what would explain this unintended change? (Maybe b/c I may have rebooted without fully shutting down Word)?

Thanks.

Hi Experts,

I am having an issue with Microsoft office 2016 Home and Bussiness.

Excel started to give me the issue when I tried to open files, all my files with chart seemed shrunk, and there is no option to adjust page size! (i couldn't see page size in Word either)

2018-05-12-15_44_24-MULINK-SUPPORT--.png2018-05-12-15_44_56-MULINK-SUPPORT--.png2018-05-12-15_45_48-MULINK-SUPPORT--.pngthe files are shared across the network and other PCs are working fine, i have tried another account on this PC but still the same.

so i decided to do Office repair, buI both quick and online repair didn't solve the issue. Then i had to uninstall then reinstall Office, however, there was still no luck. (i uninstalled twice, the first time through control panel, the second time i used Office uninstallation tool from Microsoft so it was clean uninstalled)

im Running out of options, any suggestions?

I had this question after viewing Cannot remove highlight text in email.

I am unable to remove highlighted sections of a table that is in an emailed document.  I cut/paste the table into a Word document but was still unable to remove the highlighted sections.  I had to retype the document which was ridiculous.  There has to be a way to delete color from affected sections.  Any suggestions would be appreciated.  Thanks.  Chaplyn
