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.

Does anyone know how I would re crate the attached Word Art images in Word 2016. I inherited these and 1/10 (tenths) is missing and I need to recreate.

(For wife for school)

I'm having an issue opening a Word 2016 document in Protected View I was hoping for some expertise with.

When I try to open on local drive, I"m getting this error:
OS Not Configured
I then look at the properties and have the option to "Unblock" in the security settings as shown here:
Unblock
Issue:

    This does open in "Protected View" on another workstation I have but NOT in my VDI environment.

    • All policies are the same, and "Protected View is Enabled in both environments - therefore the issue is I cannot open in Protected view in my VDI environment - on LOCAL storage.

    • Note 1:  If I copy the file to One Drive, or Sharepoint online and open with either Word or Word online - I do not get the error and it opens without being in protected view.

    • The only real difference I have noticed is with "Trusted Publishers".

    1. On a workstation where it opens without issue in Protected view, here is what the Trusted Publishers looks like:
    2. trustedpublishersworking.JPG

    1. On my VDI, where this does NOT open in protected mode and errors out, this is what my Trusted Publishers looks like:
    2. trustedpublishersNOTWORKING.JPG

    Other than turning off protected mode in each app for 2016, is there a reason for this or other work-around or explanation?

    Thanks in advance experts!

    I got this script here, and I thought it was working but appears to run when other controls are clicked as well. Is there  solution. I only want the macro to run if I select either Item 1 or Item 2.

    Sub MainMacro()
        Dim cc As ContentControl
        Set cc = ActiveDocument.ContentControls(1)
        Select Case cc.Range.Text
            Case "Item 1"
                Call Macro1
            Case "Item 2"
                Call Macro2
        End Select
    End Sub

    Sub Macro1()
        MsgBox "One"
    End Sub

    Sub Macro2()
        MsgBox "Two"
    End Sub

    In VBA, I'm having trouble with a very simple piece of code.  I've been staring at it for an hour but can't figure out what I'm doing wrong.

    I'm working in Word (365 perpetual) on Windows 10.  At one point I want to write the value of a series of userform checkboxes out to an Excel file.  I need to write them as numeric values instead of "True" and "False."  So I added a function that's supposed to turn a True into -1 and False into 0.  It has worked fine before, but tonight for some reason it always returns 0.

    xlsheet.Cells(nextrow, 34) = booltodigit(Me.CheckBox1.Value)
    xlsheet.Cells(nextrow, 35) = booltodigit(Me.CheckBox2.Value)
    xlsheet.Cells(nextrow, 36) = booltodigit(Me.CheckBox3.Value)
    xlsheet.Cells(nextrow, 37) = booltodigit(Me.CheckBox4.Value)
    xlsheet.Cells(nextrow, 38) = booltodigit(Me.CheckBox5.Value)
    xlsheet.Cells(nextrow, 39) = booltodigit(Me.CheckBox6.Value)
    xlsheet.Cells(nextrow, 40) = booltodigit(Me.CheckBox7.Value)
    xlsheet.Cells(nextrow, 41) = booltodigit(Me.CheckBox8.Value)
    xlsheet.Cells(nextrow, 47) = booltodigit(Me.CheckBox9.Value)
    'etc.
    
    
    
    Private Function booltodigit (ByRef bool As Boolean) As Integer
    MsgBox bool
    If bool = True Then
        booltodigit = -1
    Else
        booltodigit = 0
    End If
    MsgBox booltodigit
    End Function
    

    Open in new window

    As you can see I've put a few MsgBox commands in my function to verify what's going on, and no message pops up, so it appears it's not even calling the function.

    Can you spot what I'm doing wrong?  It must be so simple but I just can't see it.  Most frustrating is that this worked in the past but not now.   Thanks!

    I have a collection of about 250 related documents.  I'd like to be able to search easily through all of them  as one document.  

    I'm intrigued by the idea of Word master documents.  What might be the upper limit of how many subdocuments can be contained in one Word master document?  Thanks

    Microsoft Word VBA

    I'd like to run a macro based on the selection from a control content drop down list. Is this possible.

    If not, how do I copy the content to another cell, and maybe run the macro based on the new cell value.

    I am comparing column 4 to column 39. in table 7. Is there a easier way. It works, but seems to much. I have to compare about 30 columns to 39 , and would have to copy all each time. I think I asked before but can't find my question.

    If tbl7.Cell(3, 4).Range.Text = tbl7.Cell(3, 39).Range.Text And _
        tbl7.Cell(4, 4).Range.Text = tbl7.Cell(4, 39).Range.Text And _
        tbl7.Cell(5, 4).Range.Text = tbl7.Cell(5, 39).Range.Text And _
        tbl7.Cell(6, 4).Range.Text = tbl7.Cell(6, 39).Range.Text And _
        tbl7.Cell(7, 4).Range.Text = tbl7.Cell(7, 39).Range.Text And _
        tbl7.Cell(8, 4).Range.Text = tbl7.Cell(8, 39).Range.Text And _
        tbl7.Cell(9, 4).Range.Text = tbl7.Cell(9, 39).Range.Text And _
        tbl7.Cell(10, 4).Range.Text = tbl7.Cell(10, 39).Range.Text And _
        tbl7.Cell(11, 4).Range.Text = tbl7.Cell(11, 39).Range.Text And _
        tbl7.Cell(12, 4).Range.Text = tbl7.Cell(12, 39).Range.Text And _
        tbl7.Cell(13, 4).Range.Text = tbl7.Cell(13, 39).Range.Text Then

    How do I determine programmatically whether a Word picture content control if filled (has a picture added by the user) or empty?  I've seen the suggestion to use

    if mycc.range.inlineshapes.count>0 then  'it has a picture
    

    Open in new window

    However, the blue placeholder with the clickable image that Word uses to signal a picture CC is itself an inline shape, so even if the user has not inserted a picture you still get count = 1!  So this does not answer the question.

    Any help would be appreciated!

    When editing a page, specifically someone's Title, in Word Press, in wp-admin, the change was made, I hit Update, and Preview shows the change and it looks good.
    However when pulling up the live web page the change does not show?
    Why would this happen?
    Did I miss something?

    Hi Experts,

    I've got a Microsoft Word document that has all the images linked to external files (one per image).

    How can I create a new version of the document that has all the images embedded?

    I have done this a long time ago, but cannot remember how to do it.

    Regards,
    Leigh

    I have a PC that came with some sort of cheesy office version like "Office for those who use word on Thursdays" or some such nonsense.  The version came with the PC.  

    I own Office Professional Pro 2016 so i removed the cheesy version and installed the Pro version.  I entered a product key, activated and checked everything out.  It was good after three opens and closes.

    I go in today and wham, everything is asking me to activate office and when I do, I click the option to enter a key instead and no joy.  It just bounces back to the un-activated version.  I am running this as administrator.

    I have removed all vestiges of office and run the clean up tool and reinstalled, same problem.  Now, the email on the PC IS an Office 365 email address, but I have not installed the O365 version of office.

    I have also deleted the OEM registry keys as shown in the MS article.

    Anyone got any other ideas?  It's HAUNTING ME.  

    Thanks

    Starting over on Excel.
    a. We want all numbers on a row to be displayed as $1.92 for positive numbers and ($1.92) for negative numbers. I look at currency and accounting and no $.
    b. We want to highlight + and - currency amounts for 5 columns in a row and getting the summation of those 5.
    We are not seeing "sum" bottom right. We see autosum top right but it gets us nothing but a flashing cell and did not add the 5 numbers. I used this years ago and having to put a + after every number was not required. With that choice we might as well scrap Excel and do the calculation from a calculator on Word or even a plain piece of paper.
    c. In some cells laterally we have words. I want the word to be centered in the cell.
    This is Office 2007. I don't see what you may see. Thanks.

    I'm having a strange problem with the size of some files after I copy them.  Below you will find the properties windows for 2 different files in 2 different places.  I have done the following:
    1. Copy the file using PowerShell (overwrites the old copy)
    2. Deleted the old copy on drive E and then copy the file using PowerShell (creates a new file)
    3. Copy the file using PowerDesk 6 (overwrites the old copy)
    4. Deleted the old copy on drive E and then copy the file using PowerDesk 6

    All four result in the same thing happening:  The new copied file to the external hard drive (drive E) is larger in physical size than the original.

    I also checked the file size using PowerDesk 6 on the other external hard drive (drive F) and it is an EXACT DUPLICATE of the oringal.

    Drive E is attaced to my Linksys router and Drive F is connected directly to my desktop.  Both drives are the exact same make and model (Seagate).

    Does this possibley have something to do with the fact that drive E is a network drive?

    Seems like I am burning up disk space on drive E.
