HI, I need to provide a solution to edit word and excel docs from an ipad pro and the files are stored on a windows 2012 server.
I have install FE explorer and word.

FE explorer allows me to open the word doc in a view format, then i can tell it I want to edit the doc, which word then opens and wants to make a copy.
this is the bit I don't won't.

Within word, it does not allow me to see the server share folder.

We do not have sharepoint or any other cloud based storage.

Do you know of any 3rd party app that will allow me to open and edit a word document saved on a server ?

Hi,

In a word document, I have a table with data pulled from a database.
The last row of the table is a formula field counting the number or rows in the table. ({ = COUNT(ABOVE) }).

I would like the sentence above the table to be plurial if the numbers of rows is greater than 1.
How can I achieve this ?

I'm trying to create an A5 sized book that has Headers and Footers.
I need it in both numerical order and alphabetical order, however I want 2 pages at a time per letter.
And for the footer, they are numbered, along with a text in the center.
So if we're looking at the book, the left page and right page would look like this respectively:
example
The problem is:
Header: I don't know how to get the header like that consistently without manually typing in letter every page.
Footer: This is a picture so not a word doc. But I can't get the text to stay centered without messing up the page Number, and vice versa.

Does anyone know hwo to do this or would I need to hire a professional

I need to replace all HRt (hard returns) in a Microsoft Word paragraph, with a space:  " "

I have a PDF that as 3 columns.  When I copy and paste a column in Microsoft Word, there is a hard return code at the end of each line.

For example:

If you already downloaded the trial,
it is fully functional for 30 days
and it has all of the agents to include:  
SQL, Exchange, Virtual Host and other
agents included.

I want to create a macro in word that will transform the 5 lines above to look like this:

If you already downloaded the trial, it is fully functional for 30 days and it has all of the agents to include; SQL, Exchange, Virtual Host and other agents included.  

I have been using this feature in WordPerfect and it works great.  

I hope I can do this in Microsoft Word as well.

I would like to know if it is possible to run a macro in word document by clicking on a table cell with a mouse - the macro that would be run will depend on the text content of that table cell.
I will explain:
In a Word Document I have a simple table. I would like to run a macro when I click with a mouse (Right or Left Click) on one of the table cell. The Macro that would get run on clicking the table cell would depend on the text in the table cell. For example if one of the table cell contains text “MacroA”, when I click on this table cell with a mouse, MacroA should run. I another table cell has the text “MacroB” in it, on clicking this cell MacroB should run.

I have a user running Windows 10 and office 365 (locally installed).  When she attempts to open a Word document from her desktop, it works just fine but when she tries to open a Word document from any other folder, she gets an error, "Word could not create the work file.  Check the temp environment variable."  

If she has a document 123.docx on her desktop, no problems.  If she creates a folder on her desktop "ABC" and moves the 123.docx file into it, she gets the error.  If she has a file in a folder and moves it to the desktop, it works fine on the desktop but not the folder.   She gets it from any folder on her computer other than her desktop.  I have tried to re-register Office, I have checked the registry for her appdata location, I've deleted her normal.dotm file, I've even repaired office.  I don't know what else to do.

Experts,

I have a need to insert a visio document into a word document programmatically what is the easiest way to do this?

A snippet of my code is as follows:

#Create word Instance
$merged_Object = ""|TitleHeadingBar
$Merged_Object.TitleheadingBar = "Test"
$Word = New-Object -ComObject Word.Application
#Make Word Visible
$Word.Visible = $True
#Create Blank Document
$Document = $Word.Documents.Add()
#Create Selection object
$Selection = $Word.Selection

#Alignment Options:
$Alignment = ""|Select Center,Left,Right
$Alignment.Center = "1"
$Alignment.Left = "0"
$Alignment.Right = "2"

#Create Content
$Selection.ParagraphFormat.Alignment = "$($Alignment.Center)"
$Selection.Font.Bold = 1
$Selection.Font.Italic = 1
$Selection.Font.Underline = 1
$selection.TypeText("$($Merged_Object.TitleHeadingBar))")

Open in new window


I Thought I might be able to do the following, but it fails with


$selection.InsertFile("C:\worddoc\wordmerge\Drawingvsdx.vsdx")

Open in new window


Word has encountered a problem.
At line:1 char:1
+ $selection.InsertFile("C:\worddoc\wordmerge\Drawingvsdx.vsdx")
+ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I have 7 Word documents complete with custom styles, formatting and screenshots - basically one document per chapter. I now want to put them all together. I tried Insert | Object and they are together but they seem to be embedded (so I am only seeing the first couple of pages)  rather than the whole 7-8 pages? Is there a better way to combine multiple documents?  I am using Word 365

I'm using Microsoft Word VBA to change the footer image in a business letter, depending on the office address chosen in a dialog box.   The letter has a different header for first page vs. remaining pages, so I need to update both the first page footer and the primary footer.  

I'm having no trouble with the first page footer, but when I go to successive pages, there is no footer image visible.  It does not give me an error so I wonder if it's there but just not visible?  BIG HINT (I just discovered while writing this):  If I reverse the order of my code and modify the first page footer first, followed by the primary footer, now I can see the image in the primary footer, but it's missing in the first page footer.  So I must be doing something wrong when switching between them?  I need to update both.  

Appreciate any help!

Private Sub OKButton_Click() 

Dim footerpngshp As Shape
Dim ftr As HeaderFooter

If Me.ComboBox1.Value = "" Then Exit Sub

footer2insert = contentlibraryfolder & "\Footers\Footer" & Me.ComboBox1.List(Me.ComboBox1.ListIndex, 1) & ".PNG"

Set ftr = ActiveDocument.Sections(1).Footers(wdHeaderFooterPrimary)

If ftr.Shapes.count > 0 Then
    For x = 1 To ftr.Shapes.count
        ftr.Shapes(x).Delete
    Next x
End If

Set footerpngshp = ftr.Shapes.AddPicture(FileName:=footer2insert, LinkToFile:=False, SaveWithDocument:=True)

With footerpngshp
    .WrapFormat.Type = wdWrapBehind
    .LockAnchor = True
    .LockAspectRatio = True

Hello Experts,

I have a client that say that they lost a Word file that they were working on. They say that when they were done, they just left their laptop on overnight and the file was gone. I am assuming that the laptop went to sleep.

They see the file under Recent Documents, but I guess they get a path not found. The file was downloaded before they worked on it.

I will be doing a remote session tomorrow, and if there anything i should be looking for?All I can think of is going to Windows Explorer under C:\and searching for the file name.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

She is using Windows 10, and probably Office 365
