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 am experiencing a problem with Microsoft Office Professional 2010 (Word and Excel). I have been using this for more than a year now without any issues. Today when I created a new Word document and trued to insert a table, I was presented with the matrix of squares that are used to define the number of rows and columns as normal but after about 4 seconds the option disappeared. I tried several times with the same results. I also have the same problem when right-clicking on a Word page; the options pop-up appears and after approximately 4 seconds then disappears without having clicked anything or even moving the mouse. the same thing happens with Excel when right-clicking on a  worksheet.  This only seems to be affecting Microsoft office. Right clicking a document in Notepad works as expected without any problems.
Are there any settings in Microsoft Office which might account for this behaviour ? This is seriously affecting the operation of Word and Excel on my PC.

Did you know SD-WANs can improve network connectivity? Check out this webinar to learn how an SD-WAN simplified, one-click tool can help you migrate and manage data in the cloud.

I need to develop a mail merge for my client.  The mail merge will be initiated from my Access 2013 application.   I have done mail merges many times but always with a one to one relationship between the data and the fields on the document.

In this case I need to develop a mail merge that will have a varying number of 'detail' lines in the body of the document. It's not an invoice but an invoice is similar in construct.

There are certain fields that are only on the document once, such as customer name and address at the top.  

In the body of the document, a detail line (Qty Purchased, Product Purchased, Item Price, Extended Price) may appears one or many times.  If the customer only bought one item it only appears one time, if the customer bought 10 items that line will appear 10 times and the invoice may overflow to multiple pages.  

After all of the purchased products print there is some total information and legal chatter.

Is this construct possible in a mail merge document?     I have heard of placing blocks in a mail merge document to accomplish this type of thing but have never done so.

Example:

John Smith                                                                  08/17/17
123 Main St.
Hulu, HI 443434

Items purchased
Qty                Description                                Unit Cost                   Extended Cost
2                    Widgets                                            1.79                                   3.58

I'm working on a macro that inserts a style separator before the first period in every heading level 2 paragraph. It is also set up to skip any paragraph that is not heading 2. Currently it only works as many times as you specifically trigger it, but I would like it to continue looping until the last style separator is inserted in the last heading 2 paragraph. I can't figure out how to loop this without creating an infinite loop. I'm new to the macro writing game so please excuse my code:

      
 If Selection.Style = "Heading 2" Then
            Selection.MoveUntil Cset:=".", Count:=100
            Application.Run MacroName:="LWmacros.basHNum.InsertStyleSeparator"
            ActiveWindow.Selection.GoTo wdGoToHeading, wdGoToNext

ElseIf Selection.Style <> "Heading 2" Then
             ActiveWindow.Selection.GoTo wdGoToHeading, wdGoToNext

End If 

Open in new window



 I'm not sure what sort of condition I would need to set for the Do Loop for it to end after the last heading level 2 paragraph is found.

I have a client who created a document is Word 2013. She made some changes to it, saved it and closed Word. She came back from lunch and opened the document. All of her text, images and everything is gone. The 8 page document is now 225 pages. I verified that show hidden text was checked, but nothing. I copied the document and opened it in WordPad and I can see all the text and images.

Any ideas?

I use VBA to create custom toolbars for MS Office applications.  For Word 2007, 2010, 2013, and 2016, I've always deployed global templates as a .dotm file in the user's AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Word\STARTUP folder.  For Excel and PowerPoint, either .xlam or .ppam in the AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\AddIns folder.  

Clients are asking me whether these same tools can be made to work in Office 365 where the applications are cloud-based rather than installed on the local machine.

Do global templates and Add-ins work with the cloud-based versions of O365 applications?  Can they be deployed as-is, or do they require modification, or do they need to be recreated in an entirely new language?  Can anybody point me to some documentation on this topic?

Thanks

Hi,

We have noticed in various occasions that Microsoft Word when exiting, it display a screen (see pix below) with contents of the documents in order to sk us permission to send to Microsoft.  Usually we don't have problem  with this but we noticed  working with key sensitive files we don't want to be sending MS our contents.  How can we disable this altogether? never ask or do  any "sending" to Microsoft of our data?"

Hi

A user contacted me because she can't use the context menus in Word, Excel or Powerpoint 2016 (Office 365)

They appear as normal but quickly disappear before the user has had the time to select the required option

The right click (context) menus work fine everywhere else in Windows 7 64bit, even under Outlook

I created a new user profile and logged on to test the same Office apps and they worked fine so I guess that it is with the current user's profile that the problem lies

Any ideas ?

thanks

Good Morning Experts,

This is the situation

We use a case management system to produce word files, they are created and a initial save done back to the server when the users has finished and closes the document it saves again and then save into the CMS.

What I want to know is this - when it first saves can I store the directory location into VBA and use it to save document back at later date.

For example

1.) User creates a letter in CMS and it opened in word and saves to \\server\location\123.docx
2.) I want to record or save \\server\location\123.docx somewhere
3.) I then want to save the document locally on the C:\Drive with the same name
4.) when uses is finished I want to save back to \\server\location with the original file name

At the moment ifI change the file location to local and then exit back to CMS - CMS doesn't reflect the changes.

I've a reason  want to try and achieve this, but not sure if it even possible?

Let me know points up for grabs

I'm using Microsoft Word 2013.

I noticed when I use the vertical scroll bar to scroll up or down.

A little box shows up that displays the page like shown in this image:
This is really annoying. When I keep scrolling the page, the page in the little box changes but the page stays in place.

-word.PNG
I noticed that the vertical scrollbar used to just move the page up or down.
So if I would scroll down, that little box wouldn't show up but the page would just scroll down as long as I kept scrolling down on the vertical toolbar.
I want the vertical scrollbar back to working like this.

I don't want that little number box that is shown in the image above. That's annoying.

Anyone know how to change it back so when I scroll up or down, the page im scrolling down to shows up?
Not that annoying little box with the page number.
