Hi,

I want to create a macro in word which will find words listed in excel and replace the words in MS Word Document.
For example - In my excel the sheet contains 2 columns, 1st column Words_to_Find & 2nd column Words_to_Replace!! The list of words are Abbreviation, (Eg: DBS -Deep brain stimulation) . I want to replace the first instance in the document. Suppose if the full-form is not written in 1st instance the replace it ,
For Eg    [ (DBS) has shown wide applications for treating various disorders in the central nervous system by using high frequency stimulation (HFS) sequences of electrical pulses. ]
In the above line DBS will be replaced by Deep brain stimulation but in the pattern of underline word in the above sentence. It will replace the word with "full-form (abbreviation)".
I am attaching Excel and word document.

Thank you.

I'm working with a client on an application which will display a list of files which are available for a user to review (file types: pdf, Excel, Word, PPT, Text).

The problem is that after these files are opened:

Application.Followhyperlink pathname\filename

The user has the ability to Save or Save As from the application (Acrobat, Excel, Word, PPT, NotePad, ...) user interface.  Is there any way I can open open the files with some form of command line switch which would prevent any of those applications from allowing the user to even see the File option on the application menu?  I only want them to be able to view and then close these documents.

How To:  
  1. Create a Desktop or Taskbar icon for the online version of Microsoft Word 365
  2. Make .doc & .docx file types open Word 365 online

Summary
I have lost Word 2010 Starter (free, ad-based version offered on limited PCs & laptops) when I had to rebuild a PC.  One free option is to use the online version of Word in Office 365.  I am using it now, but all my Word files no longer have a default app.

Being able to open a program via icon or double-click on a file is a time-saver.  I'm not sure how to set this up, though, for the online version of Word or Excel.  Or Outlook, for that matter.

Help!

Word Dialog BoxOne of our software applications calls up Microsoft Word in order to print customer receipts. Each time a receipt is printed, it halts midway through and we're presented with the attached dialog box. If we click yes, the receipt prints as normal but it really is disruptive to the workflow. Is there any way to suppress this notification within Word or add an exemption of some sort?

We're running Office 365 ProPlus v16.0.10730.20088

I can not print multiple MS Word documents (.docx suffix) that are in a single folder, from File Explorer, and the right click menu also does not work in the MS Word Open File dialogue box. All of this used to work when I was creating and printing .doc files, created with Word 2003 Pro. I currently have Word 2016 Pro. What is it about the file extension that determines multi-file printability? Can the same capability be made to happen for .docx files? TIA.

I'm trying to recreate a report for a client, and in that report they have three fields Night, Weekend, Holiday (0 or 1) which need to be displayed as check-boxes.
In Visual Studio, I've made the column for these values .2" wide, have set the font to Wingdings, and have the expression which looks like:

= IIF(Fields!Night.Value = 0, chr(0168), chr(0254))
& IIF(Fields!Wknd.Value  = 0, chr(0168), chr(0254))
& IIF(Fields!Holiday.Value = 0, chr(0168), chr(0254))

In VS, this displays like the following image:2018-09-05-SSRS-Checkbox1.jpgBut after I deploy the report and run it in SSRS it looks like the following, making it difficult for the client to review the data in the report.2018-09-05-SSRS-Checkbox2.jpgIf my client exports this from SSRS to a .pdf file, it renders properly, but the client needs to export the report to Word (so that it can be edited) and when they do, that column automatically resizes itself so that these stacked checkboxes display horizontally.  My client recognizes that they can simply resize the column, but would prefer not to have to do so.2018-09-05-SSRS-Checkbox3.jpgI've tried inserting a carriage return/line feed between each character in the report textbox expression, but that results in extra spacing between the checkboxes.

I've also tried using 'X' and 'o' with the wingdings font, which places an X inside the checkbox, but the formatting issue still persists.

Does anyone have any recommendations?

First, I'm using MS Office 2010 (both Word & Excel)

I have excel embedded objects in a word document and I'm trying to find a way to write some VBA to update the source links to all embedded objects.  Currently if the file moves the link breaks and I need coworkers to be able to create copies of the templates and link them together.  I've scoured google but nothing I'm coming across works.  Presently I have to right click the OLE Object, select "Macro-enabled worksheet object", select links, and then change the source one by one.  With over a dozen objects this is extremely cumbersome.  Any help would be great.  Please let me know if you need additional information or sample docs.

Need a plan for getting cross-links to my website

I would like to start writing articles about my research, and using them to get cross-links to other news websites.

I have a Wordpress website and wonder what plug-ins can help.

Also, what kind of conventional word counts and page formats are most typical for me enticing other sites to want to cross-link?

Thanks

I am working on a Word 2010 template (.dot). It contains some document variables that are automatically filled out by an external program. Even though I specifically mark them as not bold, when I open a document filled with values from the external program, then they are in bold. I think it started after a refresh of all fields, where there was a lot of "Error! No document variable supplied" texts for empty variables. These were in bold, but even after I change them to not bold, then they still become bold when I open a document based on the template.

MS Word mail merge rules seem unable to distinguish alphanumerics when the compared item leads with a numeral, e.g.:

Rule:      {skipif {mergefield "TRANS"} <> "351A"
Record:  TRANS = 351B
Result:    Record is NOT SKIPPED (but should be skipped[/b] because "351A" <> "351B")

but the following generates the correct result:

Rule:      {skipif {mergefield "TRANS"} <> "A351"
Record:  TRANS = 351B
Result:    Record IS SKIPPED

It seems to ignore characters after the last numeral, e.g.:

Rule:      {skipif {mergefield "TRANS"} <> "351"
Record:  TRANS = 351B
Result:    Record is NOT SKIPPED (but should be skipped[/b] because "351" <> "351B"

Is there some kind of fix for this?

I have 30 PDF documents located on a folder called Policies on our file server -shared drive. Each files contain various policies and procedures for our organization.
I would like to create a single PDF file, where it has separate links to open every file that is located on the Policies folder on the shared drive. Then I would like to copy this single PDF file to the staff desktops PCs and when required staff can open the single PDF file and click the appropriate link to view the files located on the policies folder.

I opened the word 2016 and insert- Hyperlink and put the file path on the address and the Text to display- Saved it as a PDF and when I click the “Organisation Holiday Dates” link it says:
 “Security warning “- This document is trying to connect to: file///E:/HANDBOOK/...
Please see the attached snapshot   which shows the error.

Please let me know as how to stop the security warning from popping when i click the “Organisation Holiday Dates” link on the single PDF file.
Or is there any other better way to achieve this
Any help will be great

    With ActiveDocument.Range.Find
       .Style = "Strong" 'Replace with the name of the style you are counting
       While .Execute
          l = l + 1
          If l > ActiveDocument.Range.Paragraphs.Count Then
             Stop
          End If
       Wend
    End With
    MsgBox l
    ResetSearch
    End Sub
    
    Public Sub ResetSearch()
    With Selection.Find
       .ClearFormatting
       .Replacement.ClearFormatting

What I am trying to do is create a line all the way (or at least most of the way) across the page, but then add a name to that part of the document and have the name underlined also.

In the attached document, I used Shift + Underscore to create an underline across part of the page, I then stopped the underline, typed a name, then continued with the line. I highlighted the name and used the underline icon to underline the name. It looks good on the document, but when you look at it in print preview or print it out, the line under the name is a little off and doesn't match up with the underline on rest of that line on the page.

Is there a way to have a name underlined, as well as have a line across the page and have it look like one long underline?

Thanks,
Underline_Name.docx

One of my users started reporting this problem last week.

When they print to a Canon printer from Microsoft Word, it prompts for a department ID and PIN.  As soon as this screen appears it crashes and will not accept any input.  The error that Windows shows is "Print driver host for 32bit applications has stopped working."

Operating system is Windows 7.  Version of Microsoft Office is 2010.

The printer is a shared printer on a print server.

The printer works fine on other computer and in different applications.

Here are the troubleshooting steps I've performed:

1.  Removed / reinstalled printer from the print server.  Same issue.
2.  Cleared our print queue manually and restarted print spooler.  Same issue.
3.  Reinstalled printer as a network printer with the latest drivers from the Canon website.  Same issue.
4.  Reinstalled with the PS and Generic drivers from the Canon website.
5.  Ran sfc /scannow.
6.  Reinstall Office 2010.
7.  Tried printing with different fonts in Word.  Same issue.
8.  Tried recreating profiles and trying different user accounts.  Same issue.
9.  Installed latest patches and updates.

How do I use Mail Merge, Excel to Word?

I have a file with the info I need but need to create the Word template for this merge.

I also need to combine fields, like:

City, STATE ZIP

And since I have state names, like Florida, I hope I can map that to FL as part of the import feature.

Please provide some guidance or a little video that can help.

Thanks

We have MS Word SOP's that require users to sign off after reading them.  The SOP text will be locked but their is a table the users fill out with their name will be editable.  

This document works fine on our local file server but I want to put this on Office 365 SharePoint so it will be accessible through the web for our remote workers.  

When I try this, the functionality is reduced where the Word app will be able to edit but the O365 web version of Word can't.

The Word documents were created by the same version of office Word 2016

I would also like users to be able to access these SOP's from their iPhone and be able to edit (sign off)

Is this possible?  It seems like an easy thing but Office 365 doesn't work as I would expect with sharing and editing.

Thanks in advance
