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 have created a template in Word 2010
It's say 10 pages. Pages 2-9 are identical. See rough sample attached in docx format
I'm wondering if it is possible to have the 1st page different to the rest of the template?
I tried this & it works to an extent but if I say try to move the table on Page 1 to the right of the screen,
it changes pages 2-9!
"On the View tab, select the Print Layout document view.
Double click the header area of the document.
On the Header & Footer Tools Design tab, in the Options group,
select the check box for Different First Page."

Is there some way to have an independant 1st page which I can format independantly?
I dont want to change pages 2-9. Just page 1
Any help would be much appreciated!

I have a Mac Air (running High Sierra) user whose images have been replaced with red Xs and the message "The image part with relationship ID rld8 was not found in the file" in word (o365) files from our offices shared network.

this typically happens when she works with the files on the network (vs saving them locally first).

so she will open a word (o365) file on the network, make an edit and save. it will take a long time to save and then when it is reopened (by any user, not just by herself) the images will be missing. this happens on site (in the office) and offsite (running form home through VPN) and it happened before she updated to high sierra as well.

i have read that best practice is for users to save files locally before editing and will encourage her to do that with more consistency but wanted to find out if there was anything else she should be doing  as well.

I have a PowerShell script that collects data from Active Directory and puts it into a nicely formatted Word Document and appends the date at the end of the file name when it is saved so I can see the different files and when they were ran.
I then run the Document Merge in Word to save the file with the differences indicated between the last two times the script ran.
***I want to automate this process.***

I don't want a third party application to do this.  I want to be able to do this with either PowerShell or VBS or a VBS called out from with in a PowerShell Script.

Your "How to insert printer commands into a MS Word doc to determine printer tray.  Posted on 2013-10-03" applies to HP printers using PCL5.  Is this technique applicable to other printers not using PCL?

I'm using an Oki 182 IBM compatible dot matrix with a driver emulating Epson LX Series 1 (80) and wish to inhibit the paper out alarm.  The commands for this in the Oki handbook are Esc 8 (for ASCII), 27 56 (for decimal) and 1B 38 (for Hex).   Which of these (if any) would be appropriate within a Word 2000 document?

I'm looking for direction on what I should read up. I can see there are (apparently) many choices for what I need.

I'm working on a Word application. I want to distribute the code in an Add In. I want to create a Ribbon that has the buttons to run the macros in the Add In. But, I want this Ribbon to appear only when the Add In is attached.

I managed to create a Ribbon using 'Customize Ribbon'. But, this way, the Ribbon appears always, which is not what I want. Also, this would require the users to modify their Word generally.

Thanks.

How do I Add code to a custom Outlook contact form to copy data from one field to another by clicking a checkbox

This is the code I was trying, which works in a Word form:

Private Sub chkNote_Click()
    If chkNote.Value = True Then
 
        txtExecutor.Value = Partner2.Text
        txtExecutor2.Value = Partner1.Text
        txtFinancialAIF.Value = Partner2.Text
        txtFinancialAIF2.Value = Partner1.Text
        txtHealthAIF.Value = Partner2.Text
        txtHealthAIF2.Value = Partner1.Text
 
    ElseIf chkNote.Value = False Then

    End If
End Sub

This is the code I tried under the Outlook VBA scripts:

Private Sub chkNote_Click()

    If Item.UserProperties.Find("chkNote").Value = True Then
 
         Item.UserProperties.Find("txtExecutor").Value = Item.UserProperties.Find("Partner2").Value
         Item.UserProperties.Find("txtExecutor2").Value = Item.UserProperties.Find("Partner1").Value
         Item.UserProperties.Find("txtFinancialAIF").Value = Item.UserProperties.Find("Partner2").Value
         Item.UserProperties.Find("txtFinancialAIF2").Value = Item.UserProperties.Find("Partner1").Value
         Item.UserProperties.Find("txtHealthAIF").Value = Item.UserProperties.Find("Partner2").Value
         Item.UserProperties.Find("txtHealthAIF2").Value = Item.UserProperties.Find("Partner1").Value
       
    ElseIf Item.UserProperties.Find("chkNote").Value = False Then
   
    End If
End Sub

Hello

I am using Word 2016 for PC. I need to put together a mail merge with a standard message, but need to reference individual attachments for each recipient.

If this can't be done natively in Word, are their trusted/reputable third-party tools that can handle this?

Thanks

Hello,
I am using Outlook 2016. And I get emailed with excel and word attachments. I have a rule that puts these emails into a subfolder in my inbox labeled "TestMC"
I would like to run a PowerShell script that can go through all the emails in the "TestMC" outlook folder and save all the attachments into the folder "D:\MF".
Hello
I do not want to have enter a user / password in the script. And I don't want to open the outlook and just want to open the local folder "D:\MF"
The email that is getting the attachments is: "mcmc@MCtest.com"
I am very new to this and have tried reviewing other comments, but do not understand the code.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Hi All - I have exported an email from MSOutlook to an MHT file. I have found that an Outlook file saved as a MHT file includes a div and a style - the div/style - I can see this as a triangle on the right side of the word From.. when I click on the triangle - the entire section - with the msg, contracts - when I click it again - it expands - see pic below:

 Div/Style
Now what I would like to do is programatically from VB.NET, is toggle the style to contracted - and also how to delete them ...

Hi All,

I am starting Word through a Process ...

    Private WithEvents myProcess As New Process
    Private elapsedTime As Integer
    Private eventHandled As Boolean

    Public Event Exited As EventHandler

    ' Print a file with any known extension.
    Public Function PrintDoc(ByVal fileName As String) As Boolean

        elapsedTime = 0
        eventHandled = False

        Try
            ' Start a process to print a file and raise an event when done.
            With myProcess
                With .StartInfo
                    .FileName = fileName
                    ' myProcess.StartInfo.Verb = "Print"
                    .WindowStyle = ProcessWindowStyle.Maximized '.CreateNoWindow = True
                End With
                .EnableRaisingEvents = True
                .Start()
            End With

 ...

Open in new window


Once the process has started, how to can I access the Toolbars and Ribbons of that process and retrict the user to either closing the window, or saving the document - but nothing more (ie cannot saveas etc)

Hello All;

OK, I have applied a Header and a Footer (Numbered Pages for Footer) to my document.
There are 290 pages in total.
When I apply the Header and Numbered Footer, it only applies it to the first page.

My settings
Options
[x][Different First Page]
[ ][Different Odd & Even Pages]
[x][Show document text]

I have closed out of Word and Re-opened it, and still, it will only apply to the page I am on, and not to all pages.
Is there something I am missing?

Thanks

I have a user who is getting a long delay (5-10 seconds) when clicking on the fonts drop down in Word 2013 (and Outlook) and then it's really slow to scroll or select.  If I open in safe mode it's not an issue.  So I disabled the only add-on I could but that didn't fix it.  I tried repairing Office--full reinstall.  I tried deleting the user profile and logging back in and it's still slow.  So now I'm trying to mess with the fonts, but only managed to get it so we only see 2 fonts now and am working to restore it.  It's not a problem if I log in as a local account.  This user does have AppData redirected which is not ideal, but other users are not having this issue.

Dear Support,

While trying to open word or excel my pc screen goes black, need to remove and connect the power of the screen, then it will come back.
I tried a lot of ways but still could not fix the issue. Tried to change all power office in the PC, changed Screen, changed profile user account (I can login her desktop via team viewer while monitor goes off – her monitor only goes off, PC not going to power saving mode).

Its strange issue and this is the first time we are facing such issue.

Thanks

We have an issue that just started a few weeks ago. When opening a Word or Excel document from any server on the network, it will take 45-90 seconds to open. We usually get the Word or Excel splash screen but it will sit at Downloading \\path\ (0%) for most of that time. These aren't large files and if I run a ping test to these servers during that same time, I'm at or under 5ms so I don't think it's a connection issue. I don't have any add-ins enabled in either program and if I open a PDF from those same locations, it's pops up right away. Most of our users are on Office 2016 but we do have some 2010 and 2013 as well.

Could there be something in the server settings that would cause this?
