I need help with a Word Macro which will search for the word "apple" in a word document and change the font color of all the instances of the word ("apple") to green.
Thank you for your help.

Word 2016/Win10:

Hi,

In a manuscript, I have the word "fiance" where the "e" has an accent over it.

When I search on "fiance", it's not found. Doubtless b/c of the accent. Is there a workaround?

Thanks,
Steve

I had to reload a HP ProBook laptop using the recovery partition to "out of the box" status.  Now I've updated all the drivers but there is no wireless network available; all updates have been installed also.  In the device manager Qualcomm Atheros AR9485 Wifi Adapter shows that it is working properly.  I've turned on the wireless switch on the PC...still no wireless.  Also I've installed Office 2013 and WORD and EXCEL work fine, but when I try to configure Outlook it tells me it's not connected to the network, even though I'm hard wired and can ping google.  Any ideas??

We are trying to get Word to add and display currency properly for our European offices.  While I can get a Euro symbol, to appear, I'm having trouble getting Word to add table cells that contain currency in the European format properly.  That format being that commas are the equivalent of decimal points here in the US.  Does anyone have any advice in properly formatting European currency in Word?

FYI...I have already made the suggestion that they insert an Excel Workbook and perform the calculations there (where it works beautifully!).   We have also tried changing all the Region and Language settings and still have issues.  Thanks in advance!

Win10/Office 2016:

Hi.

I received a Win10 update overnight, followed by an Office update when I logged onto Outlook this morning.

Now, I notice that my Pinned files in Word look weird. e.g. Current file(s) missing and at least two files that haven't been there in ages have returned to this list.

Has anyone else seen this behavior? Is there a way to fix?

Thanks,
Steve

Hello,

I have a large word document with many hyperlinks to my C drive
I have moved the documents to a new location on my C drive.
I need to change, in mass, the hyperlinks to refer to the new location.

From what I know, if changing in mass, you should click Alt F9 for Draft view to see the hyperlink address.
then control H for find and replace.

I only need to change the following:
/AppData/Roaming/Microsoft
to
Documents

I made the change through Find and Replace but although I see the edit was made in Draft view, it doesn't show that edit was made when I close draft view and view the hyperlink by way of "edit hyperlink".

I am not sure what I am doing wrong.
Appreciate your help.

I have a word document which has a text that cannot be edited or removed.
It was created using a plug-in.

How do I access that particular text?
Not only can the text not be edited, it can also not be accessed at all with a mouse!
What method was used to create this?

Thanks for your help

see image below:
table view
You can see at the label  in the row 3 the last letter is "lolak" so because there is no space the style break the one word and send the last letter to the next row.

How can I say that if string break then send all the word to the next row?
there is any solution with javascript or css for this one.

Thank you.

I'm running Microsoft Word 2016 and something has changed to mess up the normal template.  When I create a new file now the file opens as below, where the first line is right below the top of the page:
word.jpg
Could someone tell me how to fix this? I have older Word files that still have the good normal template.  Is there a way to make their template the main normal template, or maybe save one of those files at the normal template, and then go in and delete the text on the template?

Thanks

We have a MS Access database which contains a bunch of queries (e.g. customers_NorthEast, Customers_SouthWest, etc.).  The queries return an email address & salutation so we can do customized mail merges like:  Dear John, blah blah blah

We were using Email Merge Pro which made it easier than native Word Mail Merge.  You could select one or more of the MS Access queries and it would ensure there were no duplicates across queries and create one email per recipient so that there was no chance of accidentally disclosing the entire mailing list.

What's the best & simplest way to accomplish this task now that we've moved to Office 365 (Outlook 2016) ???

Requirements:
We don't ant to use a service where we upload and have our customer lists in the cloud.
We want to eliminate any chance of mishaps in which we accidentally disclose our customer list to the other customers
We are CHEAP CHEAP CHEAP!!!
and our users are LAZY LAZY LAZY !!!

All thoughts and suggestions very much welcome,
Thanks,

Windows 10. Word 2016.

I have a 300 page document. I want to select (or block) from page 1-120. Normally I would press and hold down the 'shift key' and keep pressing 'Page Down'. But this can be tedious and easily go wrong for me.
I know that  'Find' function takes me  directly to a specific Page provided I enter the desired page number in the  'Go To' box.  Is there  any similar feature to select a large  block of text.

I have a Table in my Word 2016 .docx...I have colored various cells in the table down a single column. Looks fine on the screen but when printed or saved as a PDF the color in the cell bleeds (continues down beyond the cell). I have attempted splitting the table but the issue persists.

Any ideas on what I'm dealing with and how to fix?

Is there a non-code way to unlock a locked Word document in SharePoint 2013?

I went into "Library Settings - Version Settings" and turned off the Check-Out option/functionality but it is not Grayed out on the Ribbon. Why would that be?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

How do I get rid of the footnote rule which appears at the bottom left of my page (I don't have any footnotes and I inherited this document so I don't even know where the original footnote was located. ) There are no footnotes anymore and it's a one page document.

In Word 2016 a user cannot see all the document contents in print layout, but can see all in read mode.  I feel sure it is just a setting but cannot find what to change.  Has anyone else experienced this?

Hi experts.

Disclaimer as usual: please only participate if you have either experienced this yourself or have the possibility to reproduce it

I use word 2010 and 2016. I'd like to use a sharepoint based document template directory in the "workgroup templates" file location (see screenshot), https://sharepoint.mydom.local/sites/infonet/main/vorlagen.
ScreenshotWord does not allow that ("You cannot use an internet address here. Enter a path that points to a location on your computer or on the network"). If I map a network drive to that location (x: = https://sharepoint.mydom.local/sites/infonet/main/vorlagen), it still does not work with x:.

BUT: If I subst this network drive x: for a local drive using
subst y: x:\

Open in new window

it works with y:. Go figure...

That workaround is not very nice. Is there someone here who has a better solution?
Please note, that we'd like to keep the templates in sharepoint and not return them to a network drive.

Hi Experts!

    I have a word document that i use as a check-off sheet against forms I review.  There are about 30 items on this check-off sheet where I have placed a checkbox and manually check once I have verified the info.  For each review, I have to separately uncheck each of those checkboxes (resetting them back to null).    I'm curious, if someone has the .vba needed to create a button that would reset these all at the same time back to empty?  I tried recording a macro do this but while the macro is recording it does not allow me to remove the check from the checkbox.  Any suggestions are GREATLY WELCOMED!
