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
I have an excel sheet with Names, email and passwords
I want to send an email to each individual on the list with their password, also with some text explaining what it is used for.
I guess I could use word and merge the excel sheet data
But don't know how I can get it to send separate emails to the individual
Any ideas or guidance please

Got a lot of macros in my

normal.dotm

Word template.

When I send a document along created with it...do all my macros go along with it, too?

Many thanks,

I like to use a dark blue background and white to grey text for Word files.

Just seems easier to read.

If I set up my

normal.dotm

template to this...does that mean that OTHERS will see my documents as blue background and white text?  I mean, do my

.dotm

preferences get sent with the document?

And, if so, what options do I have if I want the documents to open without all my idiosyncrasies for easier viewing?

Thanks,

Hi:

For the first time in almost a year of using Office 365, Outlook just today started giving me an error upon trying to open Word document attachments.

It gives me that error message saying that Word experienced an error trying to open the file.

This error even appears if I save the attachment on my desktop and try to open it.

I tried several suggestions that I found online, but none of them work.

And, this issue only occurs with Outlook Desktop - not Web Outlook.

Please let me know how to eliminate this issue.

Thank you!  Much appreciated!

Need to figure out the best way to convert a Word Document into a form fillable PDF?
Looking for the tool to be low cost if possible
Does not have to be Adobe although that might be my only solution
I am open to third party tools of any kind that can do this.

Hi,

Word 2016.  

Ran the Quick Repair.  

Then, the online Repair which entailed me...reinstalling Office.  

Still having the same issue: Convert Table to Text - it WORKS but....only with paragraph marks as a separator.

Used to be you could select

Tabs
Comma
or, even a unique character:

Did it just last week!  For some reason, now, it's stopped working.

What do you think is happening?

Thanks,

I need a MS word macro which does the following:

1. Brings the blinking cursor to the left side of the line of text (i.e. beginning of the line.)  The cursor could be anywhere in the middle of a line of text.
2. Select all the text on that line (including the hard return symbol).
3. Delete the entire line of text.

A long, long time ago...

For those of you of a certain vintage like me, that should cue up a nice song!

It's a good preface for my question, too.  For, in that same way I was once able to map a keyboard shortcut to a single line up and down inside of word.

Can't find out how to do that any more.

If you right click on either of the scrollbar's arrows in an open word document, you still get the options for Scroll Up and Scroll Down (among others).

I recall long ago being able to find that same command in the All Commands list, and then add a keyboard shortcut to it.

Can't find it anymore.

Is there a way to create a keyboard shortcut so that the document is moved up or down a single screen line down as measured by the scroll bar?

If not via grabbing the arrows' own command, any other way?

Please note that the keyboard's OWN arrow down follows the text, jumping to the next page once it runs out of text. I need only to move the page downward independent of any text that may be on the page itself.

Here's a video of this now un-keyboard shortcuttable item: https://streamable.com/5t2hw

Many thanks,

PS: But WAIT!  What was that song? https://open.spotify.com/track/1fDsrQ23eTAVFElUMaf38X :D

Please help me write a macro.

I would like to:
1. search for the word degree.
2. stop the search.
3. bring the cursor to the beginning of the line.
4. select the line up to and including the hard return (paragraph symbol)
5. Delete that selection
6. prompt message box:  Would you like to repeat this macro starting at step 1. YES (go to step 1) NO (end macro)

for some reason my macro recorder does not record "searching".

I have a fairly long Word macro.  Parts of it work; parts of it don't.  

What works:  It applies Normal style to the entire document.  It applies plain text to the entire document.  It removes punctuation.  

What doesn't work:  It is supposed to replace gonna with going to, gotta with got to, sorta with sort of, kinda with kind of, wanna with want to, vs with versus, cuz with because, ya with you, and ad with A.D.  

I created this macro by recording all these search-and-replaces, not by programming it.

Would somebody kindly look at the code and tell me why the replacements don't work?  Thanks in advance.

I want to create a macro that will add to my Word document at a defined bookmark the result of a formula based on a valued from a dialog box text box “2 * ClothingSections.DaysTextBox.Text”, (i.e. 2 x 18).  Is this possible?  I’ve tried and research a number of things but it’s not working or making sense.  Please see document and picture of form attached.Dialog BoxClothing-List.dotm

Hello Experts

I have a client who is translating some documents using Word 2010.  One document is over 45 pages long.  He needs to insert footnotes, but it stopped inserting them on page 33.  Once he got to Page 34, the function quit.  He can go back to earlier pages and enter them, but not past Page 33.  

I imported the document to test it and it does the same thing on my computer, also using Word 2010.

I copied and pasted pages 34 to the end to a new Word Document and it enters footnotes just fine.  He is on footnote 16 and in what I copied and pasted, it starts with number 1.  But I think I can make that work so it starts with the correct number.  So I've found a potential work-around, but I'd like to fix this.

Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks

I have this attached document and can't figure out why the headers are messed up.  If you look a quarter of the way down the document, the header and footer shows up and then sometimes it doesn't.  When I try to redo it, it still gets messed up somewhere else in the document.  Can anyone tell what is going on with it and why?

Hi Experts.

I have a custom template that contains hundreds of building block entries. Unfortunately, the file has corrupted and, whilst I have backups, they seem to exhibit the problem too. Is there any way to extract the building blocks? I was hoping that they might be accessible as one of the 'parts'.

Many thanks for any help.

Hi
We have Windows 2012 Domain controllers and we have a class room of 30 PC and the students who are going to do the exam will be using these Windows 10 PCs.
Old GPO is already is already applied on the students OU and when students login into the windows 10 PCs,  restrictions are applied on the PCs.

Now we have a new requirement and staff would like the students to do their exams on Windows 10 PC using the Word 2016 application.
I have now created a generic exam user called EUSER and would like this account to be used by all the 30 students and once completed their work will be saved to a USB stick.

Now, I want disable spell check and grammar on word 2016 on the GPO.
1)      I have created a new OU called EXAM on the AD and within this OU I have created an exam user called “EUSER"  
2)      I have copied the old students GPO, renamed it as “Exams GPO” and applied this GPO to the EXAM OU.

Please let me know the setting I need to apply on Exams GPO for the spell check and grammar to be disabled.

Please let me know if I am doing it in a correct way and any tutorials and help much appreciated
Thanks in advance

Structure of the Query
I would like to pass multiple parameters, from Word VBA, when prompted to [EnterCriteria] in the above query. For example, I might want results from all the departments listed in the database, or I may want only results for 'Engineering' and 'Development' ("Engineering" or "Development"). Is that possible or will I have to put the SQL query into my VBA code and pass the parameters that way?

Many thanks for your help.

I'm wondering if someone can come up with a formula solution for the following:

I have a table where I import my bank transactions. I want to use formulas in an adjacent column to check for keywords (which are located in a separate table) in those transactions and then replace them with those keywords (so I can then further act on those result by categorising them etc.).

For example, a transaction to Amazon might look like this: Amazon Marketplace 0065468, or like this: Amazon Mktplc 0066 etc. The keyword here is obviously Amazon. I have a separate table with 2 columns: Column 1 is the keyword to find, column 2 is the value to replace that keyword with. They are identical: I want Excel to check if the entire text string imported by the bank has the word Amazon, and if it does then replace it in the next column with the word Amazon.

The key problem here is obviously that I need the formula to check 1 text string against multiple keywords. I've tried many combinations of Index, Search and Substitute formulas but none seem to work.

I should note that I have achieved this result with a very long IFS formula, where for each keyword I add another ISNUMBER(SEARCH("Keyword", "Replace with keyword")) part to the formula, but this means I have to manually keep editing the never ending formula for each new keyword. As above, I am looking for a more efficient and streamlined way of doing this by way of a lookup table with the keywords.

I attach here a sample …

Hi Experts

I have a reasonable amount of experience in customising the Ribbon using the CustomUI editor and using VBA to dynamically populate menus. However, I just cannot seem to get my head around what I need to do to add a new Menu to an existing custom Tab using VBA.

I want to have a blank, already created Tab - I have already done that in the Custom UI editor.

I want to programmatically add new menu items to that Tab using VBA.

It would be useful to be able to know how to add a Tab programmatically as well but that is not essential.

Many thanks in advance for your help.
