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 tried to find a way to hide or show a customized ribbon tab from VBA in Word.
I have tried to do this with the Custom UI Editor and created XML scripts, but I have not been able to use these scripts from VBA.
The only examples I have seen are modifying tabs, groups and controls in the ribbon. And then the controls can run a macro.
I guess I am trying to run XML scripts from VBA. Is that possible?
Or is there another way to do this?

I am curious to know how Click to Run of Office 365 and the sign in is acting as it is supposed to?
To me it looks like my SSO is working properly.
I enter my user name and I do not need to enter in my password, but is it also supposed to prepopulate the user name when I am using a domain computer.

Here is what I am getting when I click "Sign In".

In order to post my book on Amazon, I need the PDF to be less than 650 MB. I found many PNG files and cut their sizes dramatically by converting to JPG. I also reduced many JPG files' size equally drastically. But the PDF output does not get smaller.

I use Word for Mac 2017

What could the problem be?

Word (Mac) 2017:

I find the PDF I create is huge and suspect not all images are JPG.

How can I convert them the easiest? One problem, Word has lots of images tools but the filename and file type seem to have been lost on import.

Thanks.

I have a PDF that was created base upon a table in Word 2010.  After I turn on forms control and forms typer in Nuance Power PDF Advanced ver 1.2 I begin to enter in names. In the first column for names, when I add someone's name, as I move to the next cell in that column, if I begin to type someone else's name that has the same first letter as a previous entry in that column, a pick list will pop up to allow me to choose the name I typed in earlier. Is there a way to turn this pick list off?

Thanks,

I am starting to send lots of faxes as part of my marketing plan. I work from home and send for free with my all-in-one, with downsides:

- While the send it taking place, my landline is busy and I can not make calls. They are free to send but costing me a fortune in opportunity lost.
- I must create a cover page using Word, print it, then throw it away. (wastes effort. time and laser toner)

Is there a way for me to get my PC to send faxes over the Internet? Would this require a distinct piece of hardware?

Are there outside services that offer free end services? (I figured I ask, but do not know why they would be free)

I could get a dedicated fax line to keep fax and phone distinct, which would help. The monthly fee for a new line is not free, but at least has a fixed value, not based on the number of faxes I sent.

Suggestions?

I have Office 365 Home Premium plan and when I restart my computer Word 2016 auto starts twice. The only thing I have running on startup is:
Windows Defender
Greenshots (screen capture program)
Malwarebytes
TeamViewer
and OneDrive

I think this has to do with OneDrive, when I go to task manager it does not show Word on the list.

I had this question after viewing VBA Code to copy Text from different rows in one table to a single row in a different table.

  Diagram
The goal I need for the macro I need will be very easy to understand if you look at the diagram provided with this question.
The left half of the diagram shows how 5 tables look in my Word document. The right half of the diagram I would like the tables to look after the macro has done its job.

Bascially I have 5 tables in a Word Document. The first 4 tables have data in some rows and columns and some rows do not have any data in column 2. At the bottom of the document I have the 5th which does not have any data before the Macro Runs. I would like my Macro to copy data from both first and second column of the third row from Table 1 to Table 4 to Table 5.

Hello,

How do you create a custom command, assign it an icon, and include it in the Quick Access Toolbar (QAT) in Excel (2010)?

As an example, [Ribbon > View > Show (section)] includes the option to show or hide (Row & Column) Headings.

I looked for that as an existing shortcut (to add to my QAT) by going to:

        File > Options > Quick Access Toolbar > All Commands

However, although I looked under [Headings], [Hide Headings], [Show Headings], and [Unhide Headings], I could not find it.

Can someone explain how to create a custom QAT shortcut for that function?

Thanks

I have an HTML signature file with a dot separator that I see gets a bit mangled.

It looks thusly:

 OH 43026 • USA

What character can I embed in the HTML template that will be a small round centered dot, that can make it through, the way a dash can?

Thanks

I'm using VBA code in Word 2010/2016 to add a comment to the selection range in Word.  Works fine, but it opens the Comments pane at the bottom of the screen and positions my insertion point down in that pane, which I don't want.  I just want my insertion point to be inside the newly added comment bubble on the right margin, the same as when I manually add a comment.

I tried newcomment.range.select or newcomment.edit, but both still put me down in the bottom pane.  

So I need to understand how to prevent the Comment pane from showing altogether, or a way to close it once it does.

Appreciate any help.

I was making an assignment from last week and just completed it yesterday. Due to the power cut off, I can't save that file. But, today when I opened, all the 550 pages are there in the file. But, the information seems to be corrupted, as it is is in some other sign language type or I don't know what's that. Please help to recover the file, I want to get it done asap.

Thanks in Advance.

I have just "published" my book on IngramSpark. I am the publisher, but use IngramSpark as a print-on-demand service and to distribute the book.

They also offer ebook publishing, but I think I need to make that ebook.

Please give me an idea what options I have? What the effort is for each option? What feature my ebook would gain with various methods?

Thanks

We want to backup our documents folder, photos, music, etc.
Some of our word and PDF documents are on the desktop. In the documents folder are large video files. We'd like to put everything but the videos on the thumb drive. How when they are mixed in with other types of documents?

I guess we could create a new folder and move all videos to that folder.
Suppose that was not an option then how would we do it without a new video folder?

In a Word Document I have several tables. In my Macros I can chose to run some code on one or the other of these tables by referring to the index number of a table with a line like this
ActiveDocument.Tables(1)
or
ActiveDocoument.Tables(2)

I would like to determine in which Table my Cursor is by Running a Macro.
So basically if I run my Macro when my Cursor is in (any Cell of) the Second Table in my Word Document I would like to display a MessageBox showing “2” and if my Cursor is in (any Cell of) the Table 1 I would like to display a MessageBox showing “1” and likewise for any other tables in my Word Document.

In a Word Macro I have a line that closes the ActiveDocument like this
ActiveDocument.Close
However, when the above line of code runs, I get a message box giving me three options: Save, Don't Save, Cancel.
I am wondering if there is a way closing ActiveDocument without letting this Message Box popup or to close this MessageBox through the code so that the user does not have to chose from the three options. I would like to always Close with Don't Save Option in Macro.
So basically I am looking at a way of closing the ActiveDocument without having to manually say Don't Save.

Word 2016/Win10:

Hi,
Please see the attached, redacted Word doc. I need to insert (in very small orange font) the word "DogID" below the horizontal arrow which point from Cats to Dogs. (I know it's a tight fit, but that's not my question. :) )

I tried to copy the instance of DogID on the left of the page, but I can't. In fact, it seems like it's tied into the adjacent text box. Unfortunately, it's been a while since I created this doc, and I can't recall how I entered "DogID" in the first place.

From this doc, can someone deduce how I entered "DogID" and how I'd get another instance of it below the horizontal arrow?

Thanks!

Hi Experts

I am trying to use the following in VBA to make sure the file format of the current document matches the current version (2016) but it errors telling me that the parameter is invalid. Please can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong?

ActiveDocument.SetCompatibilityMode (wdCurrent)

The error is 'one of the values passed to this method or property out of range for this file format'.

If this is not correct, is there another way to achieve this?

Many thanks.

Is there some trick/trap to this feature?

I had this question after viewing VBA Code to Copy and past text from multiple cells in one table to single cell in a different table.

The question I am asking will be very easy to understand if you look at the image included which shows data in two tables with data after the macro I need runs.

Basically I have two tables in a word document, each with two colums. Column 1 of Table 2 has some Titles, and Column 2 has Data. However, for some Titles there is no data in Column 2.
I would like the macro to copy both Title (from Column 1) and corresponding data from Colum 2, to a single row (Row 2) in Table 2, but only for thoses rows in Table 2 where there is some data in Column 2. That is those rows which only have a Title but not any data in Column 2 will not be copied to the row 2 of Table 1.

The data from the rows in Table 2 will be put in row 2 of Table 1, with a manual line break, but preserving the formating of the data.

Table Diagrams showing data in both tables before and after the macromFor the sake of simplicity I have put only 8 Rows in Table 2. My actual Table 2 can have many more rows than this.
Thank you for your help.

I have a couple hundred Microsoft Word Tables each with a cell with the following value
FY 2016
Actual

I need to increment the year and attempted this way which did not do anything:

dim newval
newval = "2017"
call replace(tbl.cell(row,2).range.text,"2016",newval)

Question:  How can I modify this code so that it replaces the 2016 with 2017?

If possible I wish to keep the original text and just replace the 2016.  
That way I do not loose the line break
