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.

Hi,

Here is what I wish to achieve:

I want to automate sending a large number of mails using Word 2007.
First I have the Word 2007 document that contains the basic invitation message.
The invitation message has to be populated with data from a excel sheet containing the columns First name | Last name | Application name.
Next, I would like to bulk send the mail to each of the users containing the application name I'd like them to test for me:

Hi [[first name]] [[Last name]],

I would like to schedule a appointment to test [[Application name]].

Open in new window


What would be the best way to do this?

Since moving to Office 365 I have had very sluggish performance in Excel.  I typicall work in workbooks stored in my one drive folder.
Often, when scrolling through cells with the arrow keys the entire workbook will freeze for several seconds.

I noticed in the File Screen, that I do not show a listing for our One Drive Business ....just a personal one which I do not use.  It also shows 'Loading services' that never changes?   See screenshot.

All shows normally in Word and Powerpoint, so this is just an Excel thing.  I have tried uninistalling and reinstalling Office 365 from the portal, but the problem remains.   I have also tried running both repairs from Control Panel - CHange..... still no different.

How can I correct?

Dear All,
I am new and hope you might help. I use Windos 10 Home and MS Office / Word 2013.

This is the story.
1) I create a Word document on a USB stick
2) I saved the file onto the USB stick.
3) I edited many times the document at different times and in different days but always working on the USB stick.
4) the file was never saved on the hard drive (always edited on the USB stick)

Question:
1) Is there any viable possibility (eg. forensic investigation) that some trace or info of the document (the one that has always been on the USB stick) have been stored in the PC?
2) Should this have happened, where could said traces have been stored (swap files? tmp files? any other location')
3) Could these traces be retrieved somehow (eg. filename or even the contents of the doc file)?

Regards

Word 2016/Win10:

Hi,

In a longstanding Word document, I saw the following after clicking File.

XML warning.
The doc has no macros (if that would make a difference.) Any idea what the XML represents, or how I can find out?

Thanks,
Steve

Since we have upgrade to Office 2013 users can no longer open up a Word document with read/write access when another user has the document opened up in read only mode, specifically if the document contains a password to modify the document.

For instance user #1 opens the Word document they get prompted either to enter password to modify or open in read only mode. They click "Read Only", User #2 tries to open the same document and they get a warning that the document is locked for editing by user #1 even though document is read only.

In testing we've done the same exact thing in Word 2010 with the same document and user #2 gets prompted to enter password to modify and they can enter password and edit the document while user #1 has the document opened in read only.

This happens with all documents that we have set up this way, including those that were specifically created in Word 2013.

Has something changed between Word 2010 and Word 2013 that this functionality no longer exists, or are there additional settings that need to be changed to make it work, Any guidance on this issue would be greatly appreciated.

Is there a way to create a drop-down choice menu on a custom tab in Word 2016?  I know how to put custom macros into a custom tab/group but that just puts a button.  I have 15 similar buttons that I want to group into a drop-down menu like style choice or the font size drop-down menu.  Can't figure out how to do it.  Does anyone know how?

Client uses Word 2016/Outlook 2016 has an Office 365 subscription. The spell checker keeps forgetting learned words.

File has been deleted and recreated. Rogue entries deleted from registry. Re-creation of RoamingCustom.dic has been invoked through software via Proofing Tools set up menu.

Word 2016 open, spell checker taught new word. RoamingCustom.dic file time stamp changes indicating file has been touched. Outlook 2016 also open, e-mail composed and newly added word is spelled correctly and not flagged as wrong.

Outlook 2016 e-mail composer using RoamingCustom.dic also taught new words. Time stamp of RoamingCustom.dic modified and Word 2016 also knows newly learned word.

Both apps, open at same time with AppData/....RoamingCustom.dic file being modified to prove both applications are teaching the new word to the shared dictionary file. So both applications are clearly touching the same file modifying it, updating it and using the shared file.

Works for a few days then stops working. What is causing the failure?

Many thanks.

Hello Everyone,

We have a client which runs Perceptive Workgroup Search (made by Perceptive Software- formally ISYS Search software) to do searches across their network, A single Search query lets them simultaneously search across a wide range of formats, including word, excel, PDFs, XML data, SQL databases, web pages and emails. They have multiple indexes each one covering different parts of the system, however the software is not reliable anymore and the schedule maintenance tasks keep breaking causing the searches to fail, freeze or to give out outdated results.

In general, We are not happy with the reliability of the software and the support from the vendor is terrible. Can anyone recommend any similar software that can replace this program? Thanks in advanced.

Regards,

We recently replaced an old HP LaserJet 4015 with an HP LaserJet Pro M26nw in our school office. Now when we try to print anything with the school letterhead the images on either side of the school name print so large that they are unrecognizable. We are printing from Office 2010 and the operating system is Windows 7 Pro. I have already changed the setting within Word to letterhead but that made no fifference. What settings need to be changed to get the letterhead to print properly?

Thank you.

I had this question after viewing Word 2010/VBA: How to email Word doc as attachment and insert body text?.

Firstly, I am a relative VBA newby, so please forgive my ingnorace :)
I send different users a 'survey' form created in word 2010 with fillable fields.
I have used the above vba code to make it easy for the users to send the survey back, however it doesn't retain their entries. I have tried adding the line
ActiveDocument.Save
This works fine for me, but when the recipients click on the submit button, it comes up with the Save As box and even when they save, it will give them an error.
should I be using something like
ActiveDocument.SaveAs2 FileName:="H:\Completed Questionnaire.docx", _
                                              FileFormat:=wdFormatDocumentDefault

and are there other components I should include?
save-sendvba.txt

I just inserted the OLE control. And then assign the object (with the type 'Microsoft Word 97 -2003 Document'). Now I changed the object type to 'Microsoft Word Document'.

The last 2 lines of code below, if it can depict the issue better:

ole_1.object.application.Documents.Open( i_s_blm_dir + i_s_report_name, 0,1) --- i_s_blm_dir  = 'C:\Credit\'  and i_s_report_name = 'ABC.docx'. Here ABC.docx has the mail merge done with ABC.xlsx.
ole_1.object.application.ActiveDocument.MailMerge.Execute() (where it fails).

Error (PowerBuilder Application execution error (R0035)):
Error calling external object function execute at line ...

We have a Server 2012 R2 RDS Farm with 4 servers.  We have several users who modify their AutoCorrect file lists frequently.   MS Office stores those files here C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Office.  
The problem is, the RDS Farm is set to load balance, so the users randomly connect to 1 of 4 RDS Servers. And the M****.acl file gets modified and stored on whichever RDS Server they are connected to.  So, the next day, they potentially could connect to a different RDS Server which will not contain their new AutoCorrect entry.  
I cannot find a way to redirect the location of the M***.acl file to shared folder where all the RDS Servers could utilize.  
Any thoughts?
Thank you
