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.

My customer has been using Sharpdesk to do OCR conversion from a PDF to Word so they can then edit the Word Document. Sharpdesk is kind of ugly especially since they no longer have Sharp copiers.  Is the a simply way to convert PDFs to Word so that the Word Document will be editable?

   They have tried opening PDFs with Word but some of the PDFs are pure graphics so the OCR is important,....

Cloud Class® Course: C++ 11 Fundamentals

This course will introduce you to C++ 11 and teach you about syntax fundamentals.

I recently replaced a users PC, upgrading from Windows 7 to Windows 10 and also from Office 2013 to 2016.  The user creates envelopes in Word obtaining the address from the current Word document he is currently working with.  These documents are all saved on a server.  The issue is that when he clicks on the Envelopes under Mailings, the Window only opens to Envelope Options and not the dialog box that contains the delivery address and return address.  I found a temporary fix that if he clicks on Start Mail Merge and selects Normal Word Document the correct dialog box will appear.  He does not want to have to do this for every document as he works on hundreds of documents a day.  It worked fine in Word 2013.  Any ideas as to what could be causing the issue and what would be a permanent fix.  THanks for the assistance

I have a function that makes my .doc lose functionality, but it works for me in .dotm...
The function is "ActivateReferenceLibrary"; it runs on both the "Document_New" and "Document_Open" stage.
I know it is this function that is causing the issue because when I comment out the call function for it everything works.

Any ideas as to why this is happening? What am I doing wrong?

Thanks!

Windows 10 has a "mouse radar" feature that I like: I click on the control key and concentric circles "zooms in" on the mouse.

Does anybody know if there is a "cursor radar" that will do the same thing for  the MS Word cursor which marks the insertion point?  (I am using MS Word 2010, but I will give points for any version.)

In the past I once assigned a macro to Control Alt R.  But that approach was pretty ugly and I eventually abandoned it.

The macro was something like this.
Sub CursorRadar()
    Selection.TypeText "O"
    Selection.MoveLeft Unit:=wdCharacter, Count:=1, Extend:=wdExtend
    Selection.Font.Size = 15
    Selection.Font.Size = 30
    Selection.Font.Size = 40
    Sleep 500
    ActiveDocument.Undo
    Sleep 500
    ActiveDocument.Undo
    Sleep 500
    ActiveDocument.Undo
    Sleep 500
    ActiveDocument.Undo
End Sub

This course will teach participants about installing and configuring Python, syntax, importing, statements, types, strings, booleans, files, lists, tuples, comprehensions, functions, and classes.

I am a French student intern in a construction company who charge me to create a database linked to pdf documents.
I would like to create a connection between pdf forms filled in to my MS Access database, is it possible without to much programming ?
If it is too complicated, maybe it is possible with forms on word or excel, but I prefer the pdf forms...

Hope to hearing from you soon

Kind Regards

Display Issues when remotely connecting to client server using Labtech ConnectWise Control.

Since beginning to use Connectwise to the Server to work in Microsoft Access 2016 I get this odd behaviour with the Property Sheet cascading the image -- and am unable to clear it unless I move to VBA or set the focus outside the application and then return to it.

All the usual graphics settings were changed/reset back, Access settings for Client and Application settings changed/reset back, etc. Client IT support people looked into it and determined it appears to be isolated to Microsoft Access. Word and Excel do not exhibit this behaviour.

Any ideas?? See attached file. Thank you.

I have some MS Word VBA which runs 10x more slowly when adapted to run within Outlook 2016. I'm hoping someone to help me identify why that might be the case. Aikimark developed the VBA code in this question (which deletes all duplicated paragraphs in a Word document) which I adapted to run on a Message in Outlook 2016. My adapted code is below:

Sub STRIPPER_RepeatedTextParasAikimarkLast()

Set objWord = objDoc.Application
Set objSel = objWord.Selection

Hi everyone, what tools are commonly utilised by Enterprise to target and collect a paticular staff members data? By data i mean emails, local documents, files and folders, deleted items, downloads. Key word content sweeping, login / logoff details, credentials and passwords. I am the business owner but im being targeted by my business partner and i currently have a litigation case against him before the supreme court. Besides our company he has an IT managed services company and runs my businesses infrastructure. We are using Office 365 Enterprise, domain server and exchange server. My laptop is logging non-stop and many of the logs are hidden and the ones that arent are enough to male me paranoid. I even feel like they have physically been in my machine via Screen Connect client or teamviewer perhaps. There seem to be more and more 'Machine Users' S-1-15-21 DDDAFDEKXTNKWLP type user. And my laptop will suddenly and violently start blinking on and off like a strobe light. Its not the screen or a connector and if i put on Aeroplane mode it stops. Ive run Malwarebites and shows nothing. All drivers and updates are up to date.... help please how can i prptect myself? What am i looking for to detect internal corporate spying locally? Visiual Studio; SQL Server; .NET framework, Power Shell are all running locally on my laptop also. Thanks Rob

Is it possible to send an email through Word VBA (0365), where I can add 2 attachments, use a specific email template that is stored on a network drive and have that users signature added to the email template.

I have got several different attempts working using code examples off the net that allows me to send emails but only at the sacrifice of one of the above requirements.

I’ve been working on the ‘Delete_All_Bookmarks_in_Selection’ macro so that I can remove all bookmarks in a selected range. It works fine if the selection is outside a table, but if I select only part of the table, it removes more than the bookmarks in that selection.

The attached document contains that macro and a test table whose bookmarks were created with the other attached macro, ‘Create_Bookmark_for_Each_Row_in_Column’
There are six bookmarks- three in each column of the test table. By selecting whole of column 2  and running ‘Delete_All_Bookmarks_in_Selection’ and choosing ‘No’ to delete bookmarks only in the selection, the macro removes all bookmarks in the whole table. I want it to delete only the bookmarks in that selected column.

If I restore all six bookmarks and then select the bookmarked text in row 1 column 2 (‘TestRow1Col2’), run the ‘Delete’ macro and choose ‘No’ at the first prompt, the macro deletes the ‘TestRow1Col1’ and ‘TestRow1Col2’ bookmarks and leaves the others alone. I want it to delete only the bookmarks in row 1 column 2.

I’m using the ‘Selection.Range.Bookmarks’ code to identify bookmarks in a selection, but evidently it doesn’t work properly in a table cell or cells. Can anyone suggest an alternative? Is it practical to loop through the cells in a table selection and delete the bookmarks in the selection that way?

Attachment 1 is an MSWord doc which when I print to "PDFill"
printer, the blue border at the bottom left always appear even
if I set the border to "colorless".

For the bottom right border (in red), if I set it to colorless, it will
not appear in my PDFill output : refer to attachment 2.

I can always delete away the last four rows but seems like the
border on the left will still appear in the PDF output.  

Need someone to edit the MSWord doc & test print to PDF so
that both the left & right borders don't appear anymore?

As long as the editing resulted in the same amount of the blank
space between the last row of the table, the line tt reads "This
statement does not include ..." & the green line at the bottomost.

Hello, the company has a custom MS Word Macro. I copied the macro from one computer. I saved it to another computer specifically to %Appdata%/Microsoft/word/startup. When I try to run the macro, I got message "run-time error '91':  object variable or with block variable not set. I appreciate your reply :)

I notice I can't open the VBS editor as well from MS Word.

If ever this successfully run, how can I add this custom macro into button at MS Word.

Hi Experts,

I want reformat a large word document (1000 pages) so that, wherever in the document the blue text ( as shown in the attachment) is discovered it converts it to a table


The text color should remain as the original, in the document before reformatting.
The font should be as the table
The items next to the blue text differs and should be the second column of the table. The table will be 2 columns and 7 rows.

I have tried to do this, using a macro, which logically i can see is possible but  I am failing...  I would really appreciate your help - Thank you in advance

Cloud Class® Course: Microsoft Windows 7 Basic

This introductory course to Windows 7 environment will teach you about working with the Windows operating system. You will learn about basic functions including start menu; the desktop; managing files, folders, and libraries.

I'm creating a Microsoft Word template. The document that will include a list of stated client goals, as a numbered list. Later, in another section, each of those goals will be fleshed out in detail. Now I know that I can create Cross References for each latter section, that will put in the names of the goals in that list. I can do that. But what if the total number of goals isn't known until the document is being generated?

In other words, what I'd like to be able to do is create a template that will allow me to create a numbered list, and then automatically create a sub-section for each item in that list, automatically. Sometimes that list might have 3 items. Sometimes that list might have 8, or 12, or 20.

Is there a way to have the document loop through the number of items in the list, and create the sub-sections on the fly?

Dear Experts,

Before I go into my question I want to give you information about what I am working with.

Programs and their version
• Word 2013
• Excel 2013
• VBA 7.1

Explanation of the problem
I have a Word document that has both checkboxes and textboxes in it. I am looking for an Excel VBA code that can check a specific checkbox in the Word document based on an excel cell saying “Yes” (checked) or “No” (not checked). Each checkbox thus needs to be linked to a different cell.

Word has 3 types of checkboxes:
• Check box content control
• Check box form field (legacyforms)
• Check box (activeX controls)

I am using the Check Box Content Control. For this checkbox I do not find any clear excel VBA codes online that are used to check these checkboxes in Word. Is there anybody that knows how this can be done. Please also inform me if it only works with the other checkboxes and not with the content controls.

Please be informed that I also placed this question on another forum linked here:
http://www.vbaexpress.com/forum/showthread.php?63148-Use-Excel-VBA-to-check-context-control-checkboxes-in-a-Word-file

Your help is much appreciated. Many thanks in advance .

kind regards,

I'm trying to create a static form in word. I have a table setup with 5 lines that will be for the customers name on the left and their customer number on the right. The names and numbers will be pulled from an Excel source. I have underlined and tabbed all the way across the column and have the variable name underlined as well. However, when it pulls over the name and numbers from the data source, the lines could be shorter or longer, depending on the length of the name or number. I've attached a sample of the Word document. Thanks.

We are using Amazon WorkDocs as storage.  We have a website that processes orders and sends out emails with attached Word documents.  We would like these Word documents to be sent into a specific Amazon WorkDocs location automatically.  

I was thinking I may be able to setup an email filter that forwards these emails to an address provided by WorkDocs, which would save the attachments on that email accordingly.  Maybe wishful thinking..??  I'm just not seeing anything about this, but before I give up on it I figured I'd ask here and see if somebody else has done something like this..??

Any  information on this would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks!

I have a MS word document in which I have embedded 3 excel files which have very large sheets which would be too small to read if I copied them into the file.  I have to send it out to third-parties and its been suggested it needs to be controlled better by issueing as pdf or ebook.   This will take a bit more time, but it appears it will still have the problem of needing to reduce the width and height of the sheets to fit in the document.
Any suggestions?
