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.

Is there a way to enable spell checking in Word 2010 using a registry key change instead of modifying the installation? We have around 150 laptops in the field that need to have word spell check enabled, and I want to push a registry key, or a batch file out to the laptops to do this.

Thanks very much

I have a doc (Form.csv) I start in excel, copy and paste some data, close excel and open Form.csv in word. I run my macro and when it finishes I have my data in lines separated by ^p^p.
A few instances in my macro the find and replace doesn't work properly, so I am left with some lines of data that have ^p left in.
After the macro has finished I do a find: ^p^? which is all well and good, but means I have to search every line. I want to find ^p^? but not ^p^p

How can I find in Ms-Word a word and every place in the document I want to delete the word until the end of line/ paragraph?

for example: if I"m find the word "work"
and in the document, I have a line "walking to my  work from home every day "
the result will be
""walking to my"

Prefer not by macro unless no other way...

Thanks

Dear experts,

In my city in India I have the LenovoYoga520Q6IN, 7i3/4/1/FHD/MS14/W10 laptop.

Now i am trying to compare the features/strengths and limitations of the above laptop with Ipadpro 12.9inch.

My  primary focus of this new purchase is purely note taking/saving/extracting parts of pdf document and copying it on word (or equivalent) and saving the files on the hard disk.

Kindly let me know your views/experiences.

I need to find with Ms Word macro, all the strings that start with '{a}' and select the range after '{a}'  till the end of a line.

so for example, if my doc contains the following 3 lines:
aaa {a} sdfsdf sdgg
sdfsds sdsdfsdf
{a} 2345 dfd

it should find/return the following strings/ selections:
sdfsdf sdgg
2345 dfd

How can I do it  ?

Excel screenshot

How can I make cells in Microsoft Word look like the above.

This is what I have so far in the VBA in the Microsoft Word Document which is not bringing over the format from Excel

Set oExcel = New Excel.Application
Set oWB = oExcel.Workbooks.Open(ActiveDocument.Path & "\RevExpenditureTable.xlsx")

Application.ScreenUpdating = True

For Each t In xdoc.SelectNodes("//table")
    For Each r In t.SelectNodes("row")
        For Each c In r.SelectNodes("cell")
            If c.getAttribute("param") <> "" And c.getAttribute("package") <> "" Then
                oExcel.Visible = True
                oWB.ActiveSheet.Cells(1, 1).Value = 10000
                ActiveDocument.Tables(1).Cell(CInt(r.getAttribute("row")), CInt(c.getAttribute("position"))).Range.Text = oWB.ActiveSheet.Cells(1, 1).Value
               
                Application.ScreenRefresh
               
            End If
        Next
    Next

Why does Updating a table of contents generate TWO different sets of page numbers when I right click and select "Entire table" versus "numbering only"

I'm trying to understand the logic of why this is happening.  

I have attached the actual document in question and a video showing the table of contents numbering changes.TOC-Error.mp4

I'm trying to hook a Word docx (in Word 2010) to an Access accdb (access 2010)
I open the Word docx, and from the "Mailings" tab, I click "Select Recipeints", then "Use Existing List".
Then in the "Select Data Source" dialog, I browse to and then select the accdb.
Then it hangs.
Sometimes the dialog where you select the table or query will finally pop up after 15 minutes or so.
But other times, it hangs for so long I just end the process in Task Manager.
Any idea what might be happening there?

Thank

I've got a word document that has 3 pages of information and then the last two pages is more of a legal notice and then a flyer. I've run into the issue that if there is enough information on those first 3 pages, it will bump down onto the 4th page and then will split the legal notice and flyer into separate pages. Is there a way I can set it in Word that if the 3rd page goes long, to start a new blank page and leave those final 2 pages alone? Thanks.

Hi Experts

Could you point the better way to ensure a Wordpad content, by encryption or password ?

Also, what is the better way to do that?

By the way the file is opened by a VFP application

LOCAL oWSH

try
	oWSH = Createobject("wscript.shell")
	oWSH.Run(lcOutputFile, 2, .T.)

Catch To oErr
	oErr.UserValue = "Nested CATCH message: Unable to handle"
	=ALERT("PARE", "OK", 10, 10, "Wordpad não pode ser executado. Erro:"+oErr.Message )
Endtry

Open in new window


Any suggestion on decrypyt before it's opened and then after it's saved, is it a good approach?


Thanks in advance

Hi,

In MS Word (*.rtf) I have setup a document for Herma 4077 labels.
In each cel (label) I want to place a image an address and a footer.

Placing the image at the top right and the address in the middle is easy, but I need the footer to stay at an exact position at the bottom of the cel (label). Now this will move whenever the address has more or less lines.

Is there any way to accomplish this (preferably without using an image for it)?

Hi Experts,

We recently installed office 2016 and I'm having a hard time to get simple things working just the way they always did.
for example the following
1- When selecting and right clicking on a word typed in new email, why is the copy option not avail? (see attached)
2- When selecting a file to attach, I dont immediately get to see My Computer (see second attachment).
3- When I finally get to select a folder and realize have to move up one level, that option is gone..

Wondering how can I just get back my old tools/shortcuts working properly?
Thanks in advance.
