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 have created a template in Word 2010
It's say 10 pages. Pages 2-9 are identical. See rough sample attached in docx format
I'm wondering if it is possible to have the 1st page different to the rest of the template?
I tried this & it works to an extent but if I say try to move the table on Page 1 to the right of the screen,
it changes pages 2-9!
"On the View tab, select the Print Layout document view.
Double click the header area of the document.
On the Header & Footer Tools Design tab, in the Options group,
select the check box for Different First Page."

Is there some way to have an independant 1st page which I can format independantly?
I dont want to change pages 2-9. Just page 1
Any help would be much appreciated!

I have a Mac Air (running High Sierra) user whose images have been replaced with red Xs and the message "The image part with relationship ID rld8 was not found in the file" in word (o365) files from our offices shared network.

this typically happens when she works with the files on the network (vs saving them locally first).

so she will open a word (o365) file on the network, make an edit and save. it will take a long time to save and then when it is reopened (by any user, not just by herself) the images will be missing. this happens on site (in the office) and offsite (running form home through VPN) and it happened before she updated to high sierra as well.

i have read that best practice is for users to save files locally before editing and will encourage her to do that with more consistency but wanted to find out if there was anything else she should be doing  as well.

Please any one guide me.

I have a lengthy Excel VBA script that works quite well. I have recently added to it the VBA code to send certain worksheets by email to selected individuals via Outlook from inside Excel VBA. Now, I want to add code that will call six separate one-page Word documents (already written and saved to disk as six .docx files) and print 1 copy of each of these six single-page Word document files at the end of the Excel VBA script, just before the script terminates and Excel closes. I've never called a Word document to print from within Excel with VBA, but, like with Outlook, I know it can be done.

Do any of the experts have a code snippet or sub that I could try within my Excel VBA script that would do this?

Thanks!

Glenn

I have a PowerShell script that collects data from Active Directory and puts it into a nicely formatted Word Document and appends the date at the end of the file name when it is saved so I can see the different files and when they were ran.
I then run the Document Merge in Word to save the file with the differences indicated between the last two times the script ran.
***I want to automate this process.***

I don't want a third party application to do this.  I want to be able to do this with either PowerShell or VBS or a VBS called out from with in a PowerShell Script.

Your "How to insert printer commands into a MS Word doc to determine printer tray.  Posted on 2013-10-03" applies to HP printers using PCL5.  Is this technique applicable to other printers not using PCL?

I'm using an Oki 182 IBM compatible dot matrix with a driver emulating Epson LX Series 1 (80) and wish to inhibit the paper out alarm.  The commands for this in the Oki handbook are Esc 8 (for ASCII), 27 56 (for decimal) and 1B 38 (for Hex).   Which of these (if any) would be appropriate within a Word 2000 document?

I'm looking for direction on what I should read up. I can see there are (apparently) many choices for what I need.

I'm working on a Word application. I want to distribute the code in an Add In. I want to create a Ribbon that has the buttons to run the macros in the Add In. But, I want this Ribbon to appear only when the Add In is attached.

I managed to create a Ribbon using 'Customize Ribbon'. But, this way, the Ribbon appears always, which is not what I want. Also, this would require the users to modify their Word generally.

Thanks.

My users will open a new document from a .dotm template. Having run a small procedure on opening, the document then needs to break its connection to this template.

1. How do I remove the reference to that template please?

2. Similarly, I then need to attach another template (AddIn) that has the code to run against this (newly created) document.

Any help or direction will be welcome.
Thanks

How do I Add code to a custom Outlook contact form to copy data from one field to another by clicking a checkbox

This is the code I was trying, which works in a Word form:

Private Sub chkNote_Click()
    If chkNote.Value = True Then
 
        txtExecutor.Value = Partner2.Text
        txtExecutor2.Value = Partner1.Text
        txtFinancialAIF.Value = Partner2.Text
        txtFinancialAIF2.Value = Partner1.Text
        txtHealthAIF.Value = Partner2.Text
        txtHealthAIF2.Value = Partner1.Text
 
    ElseIf chkNote.Value = False Then

    End If
End Sub

This is the code I tried under the Outlook VBA scripts:

Private Sub chkNote_Click()

    If Item.UserProperties.Find("chkNote").Value = True Then
 
         Item.UserProperties.Find("txtExecutor").Value = Item.UserProperties.Find("Partner2").Value
         Item.UserProperties.Find("txtExecutor2").Value = Item.UserProperties.Find("Partner1").Value
         Item.UserProperties.Find("txtFinancialAIF").Value = Item.UserProperties.Find("Partner2").Value
         Item.UserProperties.Find("txtFinancialAIF2").Value = Item.UserProperties.Find("Partner1").Value
         Item.UserProperties.Find("txtHealthAIF").Value = Item.UserProperties.Find("Partner2").Value
         Item.UserProperties.Find("txtHealthAIF2").Value = Item.UserProperties.Find("Partner1").Value
       
    ElseIf Item.UserProperties.Find("chkNote").Value = False Then
   
    End If
End Sub

I have Word for the Mac and it has a font I would like to use in Adobe Photoshop for the Mac. However, the font is not in the Mac's Font Book and all the alternative versions on the web are not quite the same as the one embedded in Word.

How do I either export from the Windows compatible folder or use somehow the Edwardian Script font on the Mac? Any help appreciated.

Cheers

Dear Experts:

My current document features several tables.

There are cells in the first column of the tables that start with the string 'X_'

I would like to run a macro that deletes the whole row whenever table cells in the first column start with that string 'X_'

The macro is to tell in a Msgbox how many rows have been deleted, if any.

Help is much appreciated. Thank you very much in advance.

Regards, Andreas
