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 want to use a Word document as a page in an Access Report. The Word page size is 8.5 X 11 with .25 margins on all 4 sides. The Access report page is set up exactly the same. The font on both document controls is Ariel 10.

The problem? When I copy the Word document over to the Access report page, the document expands to 10.5 inches wide and nothi8ng I do seems to work to get it to the 8" report width I need. I have attached two screen-shots to illustrate the issue.

Your assistance will be appreciated. I am reasonably proficient in both programs but I have exhausted my knowledge on this issue.

This code had been written for me some time ago, it worked great while needed but abandoned after there was no longer need for it.

I now have Excel 2016 and Word 2016 installed, and the Microsoft Office 16.0 Object library is referenced. (I think when originally installed, it was on Excel 2013).

 I tried reinstalling the code on a new pc,  Excel opens the appropriate Word doc ie: “Model 2.docx” and then displays Error #5941, the  “the requested member of the collection does not exist” when attempting to run it. Sometimes, its simply a VB message box with a Red X with no message.

I would appreciate any suggestions,

Thanks,

Does anyone know what the best pdf editor is?  I would like to be able to open a pdf file, add texts (mainly) for form filling and to be able to save what I have edited\added\removed.  And I would like the feature to export the pdf file to word too.

I am currently using Adobe Acrobat Standard DC but am trying to avoid having to pay a monthly subscription.  

I have other tools but they do not work as well.

Any recommendations?

Thank you in advance!

Is there a way to make this document open up in edit mode when I have the restricted editing to only forms? Right now when it is protected (with no password) it opens in a view only format. Can it be changed so that the document opens up in edit mode when restrict editing is on?

We have a set of template documents/standard folder structure for when we create a new customer file on a file server (windows server 2012). Due to the location of the standard templates (they are a mix of standard word.docx, standard excel xlsx and a few of the files are the macro-enabled equivalents, e.g. xlsm/docm), at present we cannot amend the NTFS permissions to lock them down e.g. only read only access to the standard users. For the time being I cannot re-locate the files to somewhere where the staff only have read-only access to the files/folders to stop inadvertent updates - which is a pain, but I need something in place until that gets resolved. Is there any obvious/automated ways where I can quickly identify, maybe once or twice per day rather than going down the path of email alerts, if any of the files have been deleted/updated/renamed etc? If I could get some sort of script to say "yes there have been changes", "no there have not been any changes", by comparing those on the standard templates folder, to a hidden golden copy only I can access - that would be great. And/or any other solution you can think to achieve the same? I was think MD5 hashes of the entire folders/or each file may be one possible path.

Powershell seems to have a solution for almost everything, or there may be methods within office/word/excel themselves to assist.

Hey, I need help with the VBA coding of this word document. What I want it to do is remove the content control wherever there is text. And because the document with be restricted to only content control editing, it will essentially lock the content in. I cant seem to get my code to actually delete the content controls where there is text thought. If anyone can help I would greatly appreciate it!!

Thanks,

Doing some calculations in Word using VBA.

Does anyone have any idea why on earth my code is not formatting my number with as $8,000.00. Instead I get $8000? I feel like I have my variables declared correctly. I'm using Single. I get the string and then store the string variable as a single variable.

Public Sub RefreshSubtotal()

    Dim oTable As Table
    Dim rwCount As Long, colCount As Long, i As Long
    Dim cl As Cell
    Dim rw As Row
    Dim col As Column
    Dim r
    Dim sQty As Single, sUnitPrice As Single, sSubtotal As Single
    Dim str As String
    Dim strTableHeading As String
    Dim strEstimatedTotal As String
    
    Set oTable = Selection.Tables(1)
    oTable.Select
    
    rwCount = oTable.Rows.Count
    colCount = oTable.Rows(2).Cells.Count
    
    Set cl = oTable.Cell(1, 1)
    cl.Select
    strTableHeading = Replace(pureText(cl), Chr(21), "")
    
    
    For i = 2 To rwCount - 1 'start at 2 as 1 is the header row. end row above subtotal
        If strTableHeading = "0" Then strTableHeading = "Heading Missing"
        Set cl = oTable.Cell(i, 2)
        str = pureText(cl)
        sQty = str
        Set cl = oTable.Cell(i, 3)
        str = pureText(cl)
        sUnitPrice = str
        Set cl = oTable.Cell(i, 4)
        sSubtotal = Format(Round((sQty * sUnitPrice), 2), "$#,##0.00")
        cl.Range.Text = sSubtotal
    Next i
    
    ActiveDocument.Fields.Update
    Options.PrintHiddenText = False
    
    Set cl = oTable.Cell(rwCount,

Is there a way to conditionally print a bookmarked section in an RTF?  I'm trying to create output reports from a program (not mine) that requires RTF's and uses bookmarks to display multiple rows/fields from a sub table related to the main table.  Unfortunately I can't find an easy way to NOT print labels or section dividers in the RTF if there is no data to print.  It results in a lengthy report with blank fields stuck in between other data.

THanks for any thoughts!

Hey,

I am trying to make a Microsoft word document that allows users not to edit content once the content controls are removed. My plan to do this was by restricting the editing to only filling in forms and then creating a code that removes the content control anywhere that there is text value. I am new to VBA and cant get the code to work properly. I can get it to remove the content controls when they are empty but when I try to remove them with content they do not disappear. I have attached the document that I cant get to work.

If anyone can help me that would be fantastic!

Thanks,

Max

I am formatting a book in MS Word 2016. I need to suppress the heading in pages that start a new chapter.  But choosing DIFFERENT FIRST PAGE in the Header & Footer Tools removes the page number, which I want to keep. Is there any way to remove just the header?

I often receive the below error message when attempting to open Word files.  At the time of the latest occurrence, 67% of 8GB of RAM was in use.  Rebooting the Laptop usually corrects the issue.  I can open a new blank Word file even after the error is received when trying to open an existing Word file.  

Does anyone have any thoughts as to why this is happening?  

I am working on a Lenovo Laptop that has the attached system profile.  The laptop has not been performing as I expected for a quite a while, but I don't know enough to  isolate any issues that are occurring with the software or hardware.

_____________________

Dear Experts:

I performed 'manual hyphenation' on a document.

I changed my mind and now I would like to reset the document to 'no hyphenation' . I got no idea how I can achieve this.

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

Using Read mode

Used to be Read Mode would show just one page at a time.

Now, selecting Read Mode shows me scrolling pages.

It does suppress all toolbars and strips away a lot.

Need to get the Read Mode to show just one page at a time.

What am I doing wrong?

Is there server specific coding needed for Web.config files  where the website is uploaded to a Windows server? Believe it or not; “Verio; my website hosing company does not know which version of Windows Server they are using --  they only know that it is Windows server!” Please look at my web config file and let me know if anything stands out.

Word 2016 "There is insufficient memory or disk space. Word cannot display the requested font."

I am getting this error on a newly upgraded HP Z840, we upgraded from Win 7 pro to Win 10 Pro, also Office 2010 to Office 2016. Its the same shared file system however we did upgrade servers to 2016 and completely renamed the domain and nuked the old one. I dont see any permission issues with the old file system and I have tried every internet remedy. Rename .dot, check permissions on font folder, make sure document is not protected. It does not seem to do the same thing on newly created files.

This is my last attempt before contacting 365 support.

Does anyone have any advice on how to rename .sam files to .doc files so they can be opened in Word instead of Ampiro or Lotus SmartSuite?  Or a converter that can do this for me that can handle multiple files at once?  I currently can open one at a time and save it manually in Lotus, but I have a few thousand files so this process is not ideal.

Thanks!

Dear Experts:

I got a strange phenomenon on my word interface, namely in the styles pane as well as the layout dialog field.

Symbols for paragraph styles and character styles have turned into black squares. I got no idea what is going on.

I have tried the following measures to get rid of this bug:

Reset normal.dotm template several times
Did a full repair of my office 365 installation over the internet

Nothing has helped so far. Any idea from the experts what I could do?

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

I recently upgraded from a Windows 7 computer to a Windows 10 computer. I have a Word 2003 file with several complicated macros. They do not run on later versions of Word so I installed Word 2003 on the Windows 10 computer. However the macros run about 3 times slower on the Windows 10 computer than on the old Windows 7 computer. I deleted the normal.dot file, switched to Windows 7 compatibility mode for word and checked that I have no add-ins in Word. None of this helped.

Any ideas?
Thanks
