Hi,

I have lots of quotes stored an Excel spreadsheet.

Something like:

The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog.

Have already set the cells to Text format.

No matter what width I set the cells to, there are

CR & LF

inserted randomly into the text.  So that, if I try to copy the quote and paste into Word, it comes out as

The
quick brown fox
jumped over the
lazy dog

Same for Notepad.  Or Wordpad.  Any text-focused destination.  

Is there any way I can copy text from a cell in an Excel spreadsheet and have these CR & LFs suppressed or removed automatically when I hit paste.

Many thanks!

When previewing a Word or Excel document in Outlook, doesn't that use a "read only" kind of mode that just displays the data inside without running any macros or other embedded code? I've found a few things online saying it does not, depending on the version of Outlook used. I was just looking for something with more confirmation.

My reason for asking is we get so much junk mail at my domain that this morning a legit email was almost missed because the sender didn't put much in the body of the message to describe what the attachment was about. Basically, we're looking to see how save it is to preview Word or Excel docs in Outlook for those times where you can't quite tell if the message is legit.

Hello All.  I have a MS Word Document.  I have code to find "TBD".  When it is found, I need VBA Code to capture the Section Number.

I have a table with 2 rows in a Microsoft Word document.

Row 1 has a dark blue backgroud with the text in white:  go to "https://www.website.com" for more information.

Row 2 has a white background with the text in black:  sign up here for the webinar:  https://www.seminarname.com

See image below:


Hyperlink Issue in Microsoft Word


When I click "Mailing", "Email",

In the email message row 1:  Outlook has the hyperlink properties as dark blue (against a dark blue backgroup), which is very hard to read.  
In the email message row 2:  Outlook has the hyperlink properties as dark blue (against a white backgroup), which is easy to read.

How can I prevent only row 1 from turning the hyperlink dark blue?  I would prefer the hyperlink color to be white?

Can anyone explain why you need to provide the page and section information in order to print a specific range for SOME multi-section documents but not others?   I know how to print using p#s#-p#s# format but I need to know why.  I have two very similar documents and one requires me to put in the page and section info and the other does not.   I haven't found the answer as of yet.  We are using Windows 10, Office 2016 Pro Plus and everything is 64 Bit.

Should I purchase Helvetica?
I've been in a debate with a friend about Arial versus Helvetica. Or paid fonts in general.
Can I get some proof I can actually see that Helvetica -- or something else-- is better than the built-in Arial.  Or Arial narrow, etc.

I would like the sentence above the table to be plurial if the numbers of rows is greater than 1.
How can I achieve this ?

I'm trying to create an A5 sized book that has Headers and Footers.
I need it in both numerical order and alphabetical order, however I want 2 pages at a time per letter.
And for the footer, they are numbered, along with a text in the center.
So if we're looking at the book, the left page and right page would look like this respectively:
example
The problem is:
Header: I don't know how to get the header like that consistently without manually typing in letter every page.
Footer: This is a picture so not a word doc. But I can't get the text to stay centered without messing up the page Number, and vice versa.

Does anyone know hwo to do this or would I need to hire a professional

I need to replace all HRt (hard returns) in a Microsoft Word paragraph, with a space:  " "

I have a PDF that as 3 columns.  When I copy and paste a column in Microsoft Word, there is a hard return code at the end of each line.

For example:

If you already downloaded the trial,
it is fully functional for 30 days
and it has all of the agents to include:  
SQL, Exchange, Virtual Host and other
agents included.

I want to create a macro in word that will transform the 5 lines above to look like this:

If you already downloaded the trial, it is fully functional for 30 days and it has all of the agents to include; SQL, Exchange, Virtual Host and other agents included.  

I have been using this feature in WordPerfect and it works great.  

I hope I can do this in Microsoft Word as well.

I would like to know if it is possible to run a macro in word document by clicking on a table cell with a mouse - the macro that would be run will depend on the text content of that table cell.
I will explain:
In a Word Document I have a simple table. I would like to run a macro when I click with a mouse (Right or Left Click) on one of the table cell. The Macro that would get run on clicking the table cell would depend on the text in the table cell. For example if one of the table cell contains text “MacroA”, when I click on this table cell with a mouse, MacroA should run. I another table cell has the text “MacroB” in it, on clicking this cell MacroB should run.

I have a user running Windows 10 and office 365 (locally installed).  When she attempts to open a Word document from her desktop, it works just fine but when she tries to open a Word document from any other folder, she gets an error, "Word could not create the work file.  Check the temp environment variable."  

If she has a document 123.docx on her desktop, no problems.  If she creates a folder on her desktop "ABC" and moves the 123.docx file into it, she gets the error.  If she has a file in a folder and moves it to the desktop, it works fine on the desktop but not the folder.   She gets it from any folder on her computer other than her desktop.  I have tried to re-register Office, I have checked the registry for her appdata location, I've deleted her normal.dotm file, I've even repaired office.  I don't know what else to do.
