I know the Include Field will include part of the text from an Include File if it is in a bookmark. The format is {IncludeText "File Path" Bookmark}. I have 2 files: Source and Target.

Source is a form template. I included a Text Form Field and gave it the bookmark AA. I also included other text in a "normal" bookmark, BB.

In Target I have 2 fields: {IncludeText "C:\\" AA} and {IncludeText "C:\\" BB}. The text from BB shows up, but the one for AA is blank.

If I go into Source and look under Bookmarks, both AA and BB are there.

BTW, I have tried it with the Source form both "Protected" and "Unprotected" and it didn't make any difference.

Any idea why this is happening, and more importantly, any idea on how to make this work? If not, it seems like a real bug in Word 2003 as they are both definitely considered to be bookmarks.

Thank you,

I support a software program that has a proprietary menu item when you right-click a calculated field. It has been this way for 10-15years and has worked in WinXP through Win10 with never an issue. This past week I had 3 different customers tell me that when they right-click one of these fields to access what is normally the Cut/Copy/Paste/ menu that also includes our menu item, they are now getting the Windows default cut/copy/paste/Right to Left Reading order/Show Unicode control characters/ etc menu. The only thing I can think of that they all have in common besides these are all Window 10 64bit pc's, is that they all have one update to Adobe Acrobat (17.012.20098).
I was able to resolve for a moment on two of these workstations by having the user go into Language/Advanced settings and actually selected "English (Unites States) from the "Override for Windows display language" even though that settings is implied by the "recommended". But after the pc was turned off over night and back to it the next day, the problem is back and that setting is still selected. All language and regional settings on all the pc's are defaulted to English/Unites States. I do not know what other avenue to go in. Could something hae been switched on or off in Windows (by this Adobe update perhaps?) that would make the context text menu switch to Windows text default right-click menu?

Any help is appreciated!

hello y'all

I've been having this "problem" (little, tiny one) lately: when accessing my yahoo mail in the BR domain the text size automatically decreases (just as when you go to View\Text Size and decrease it automatically). This doesn't happen when I access another email account in the UK domain. I also noticed that, when browsing from one mail message to the other or from one folder to the other, the text size briefly returns to normal just to decrease again once the mail message/folder/etc has been fully loaded?
Do you have any idea why this happens? It's not really a problem, it's just annoying
Thanks in advance

It "feels" as if the keyboard buffer is not being read quickly enough. The delay is very long when more than just a few characters are entered. I am writing this in IE8 and the text appears immediately after any keystroke.

It also appears immediately in Yahoo mail when using Chrome.

Why does it happen in IE8 and Yahoo? I am not aware of having the same problem in any other software/program when in IE8.

Answer:Text very slow to appear when typing in Yahoo Mail/IE8

Hey dmb06851, one of my email accounts is Yahoo Mail, are you using New Mail or Classic ?? When I type using IE8 the text is about normal, maybe just alittle lag, but everything else loads very slow, even clicking on Inbox is slow, but in Firefox and SRWare Iron everything is much faster. It maybe a compatibility issue with IE8.

At work, I know the company blocks some things and doesn't have the most up to date software but things were working OK for quite some time. This morning, without any notification that anything had been changed, Yahoo Mail for myself and 2 others lost the rich text capability and the toolbar.

A search hasn't turned up any help.

I did find something that says Yahoo Mail has limited capabilities under IE7, but it was working fine until this morning.

The "rich text / basic" option under the Subject bar in the email isn't there now, either.

The "new improved" Yahoo Mail isn't. In fact, it's vexing, mortifyingly slow, and no longer allows open folders while creating new messages so you can't copy and paste with both items open. Since Yahoo won't permit going back to the old, reliable version. So, I'm seriously considering a switch to Mozilla's Thunderbird v 24.0.1 on my Win7-64 desktop and my wife's Win7-64 laptop. She uses the paid version of Yahoo and I'm on the free version.

Once I get Thunderbird going, does anyone know how I can:
get mail addressed to me at Yahoo forwarded to me in Thunderbird?
import my Yahoo contacts into Thunderbird?
import my Yahoo folders and their contacts into Thunderbird?
I'm not a techie, so I'd greatly appreciate learning how I can go about this. Thanks in advance.

How do I get Firefox to remember something typed into a specific field? This text box pops up after I select 'Merchant Accept Liability' from the dropdown menu.

One of the best rated form fillers is Roboform. It works in Firefox and IE.


Quality Artificial Intelligence
RoboForm is really smart in filling in forms; it is the most precise form filler on the market. We use Artificial Intelligence techniques to achieve this kind of precision and we test RoboForm thoroughly.

Selective Form Filling
You can ask RoboForm to fill just a part of your form, rather than the complete form. Simply select (highlight) the fields that you want RoboForm to fill and click any form filling button -- only the selected fields will be filled.

You could also try one of these Firefox addons:




Automate Firefox. Record and replay repetitious work. If you love the Firefox web browser, but are tired of repetitive tasks like visiting the same sites every days, filling out forms, and remembering passwords, then iMacros for Firefox is the solution you?ve been dreaming of! Whatever you do with Firefox, iMacros can automate it.

Question: Text Field Issues

While the main reason for this help request is to help me fix the text field problem Im having, there are a couple other problems as well.

It has become an ongoing problem, no clue what causes it. In certain games, so far only Mabinogi and Test Drive Unlimited, when I go to type something in a text field, my computer pauses, and people talking in Ventrilo repeat themselves over and over for a couple seconds. The same thing happens when I exit a text field in said games. No one else I have talked to has this issue, and I am fairly certain they have slower computers than me, so no clue what the issue is.

The other problem is my graphics card. I have an ATI Radeon x800 card, and when I am playing games, I get errors when it does not even seem to be taking up much memory. I was playing Test Drive Unlimited which I just got today, and I was getting a report error window for ccc.exe about every minute in game. If I ignored it, I could keep going, but eventually another error window popped up saying the same thing, so I shut the game down. I meet the minimum requirements, but I have no clue why its doing this. My computer has a history of overheating, but I don't know if its due to that.

Also, is there a program I can use to monitor the heat in my computer? I'd like to know if that is truly the problem here, as I have been told that my card could be damaged by now if it is overheating.

Answer:Text Field Issues

First heer is a link to the site that has a monitor for CPU and Heat along with a few other things. It is called MBM and about the 11th item down. It is Freeware.I would also suggest getting any Driver updates needed. I do not know what system you have but you can go to the manufacturers site and retrieve them from there. Do these two things and then try the game again so we know if it is a heat problem which it sounds like back and let us knowThank you Jitaa

I have a table consisting of 8 columns by 26 rows. In each cell, I'm adding a Text Form Field. Is there anyway, besides doing it cell by cell, where I can just copy a row, then paste the same Text Form Field with text length maximums in the other 25 rows?

Answer:Word - Text Form Field

Sure, Brian.
Create first row.
In Print Layout view, take your mouse pointer to the left of the left-most cell in the row, and it should turn into a 1:00 pointing arrow. Click to select the whole row, then Ctrl+C to copy. Place your cursor in front of the paragraph return just below the table OR in the left-most cell of the row that you want a new row above, and hit Paste.

Ok, first, I'm running Windows XP Pro SP2 on an HP Pavilion 8760c. It originally came with Windows 98, but the previous owner upgraded it to the XP sometime before giving the computer to me. I do NOT have any disks, neither the original system disks nor any restore disks, nor does there seem to be any restore partition on the hard drive.

First problem is -- for some reason when I try to type into any text fields in any windows based programs, the cursor goes into hyperblink mode, won't click into any text field, and won't let me type in any of them. I first noticed the problem when I tried to use internet explorer, I went to Google like normal and while it will let me type in the address bar at the top, it won't type into the Google search field. I have since found out it is NOT IE specific, but it won't let me type into the windows help search field, or the field where you enter a name for a restore point when manually setting it, or in the captcha box on a game program I use or pretty much anything windows based. I downloaded Firefox and I can type in Firefox with no problems, which is fine for searching the web, but does not fix the problem.

Second, with the system restore... this computer used to work fine. I used it occasionally at my old house, then we moved and the computer sat idle for about nine months, and I just hooked it back up last week.

Answer:MS Access 2010 Text Field Question

There are 3 ways to do this.
1. This method uses a query to combine the data, but it will not store the combined data and it will not refresh on it's own if you add or change the data.
2. This method combines the data in and Unbound field by making it the Control Source of the Field. This will not save the data to a table but will automatically update.
3. This method uses VBA in the After Update Event Procedures of the 3 fields and will automatically update the data and also save it to a table if required.
The choice is yours.

I was in settings today and It gave me a message telling me I had to reset my settings because something or another was corrupt. I did so and most stuff works fine (Had to sign back into a bunch of stuff) but I do have one problem. Text fields no longer seem able to remember anything I've put into them. For example when trying to sign in here I usually just click the username box, "Bad-People" comes up and I click it to enter it automatically. But "Bad-People" doesn't come up anymore.
I figured resetting things just erased the history. That would have been fine but it also doesn't remember anything I enter new. So if I signed in here, then signed out, and then tried to sign in again "Bad-People" STILL wouldn't show up. This is a feature I use A LOT on a number of sites but it no longer works on any site I've tried.

Hi everyone!

I'm sure this is probably something very simple that I'm missing...

I am creating a document template for a specific document type.

I have two rich text controls added to a document via the developer tab.

The first is the document's number in a series of documents to be created. The second is the actual document title.

In the footer area, I want these to be shown in reverse - i.e. the document name, then the document's number, so I am making it very easy to check the number of the document when flicking through a physical folder.

I tried to do this with bookmarks and cross-referencing, but the bookmarks are not saved when you create a new document based on that template.

I tried with a macro, but after recording the macro, it didn't really do what I wanted.

Is there an easy way to get this working? If not, is there a way I can assign names to the rich text controls in my template to run a macro more efficiently?

I am creating a document template for a specific document type.

I have two rich text controls added to a document via the developer tab.

The first is the document's number in a series of documents to be created. The second is the actual document title.

In the footer area, I want these to be shown in reverse - i.e. the document name, then the document's number, so I am making it very easy to check the number of the document when flicking through a physical folder.

I tried to do this with bookmarks and cross-referencing, but the bookmarks are not saved when you create a new document based on that template.

I tried with a macro, but after recording the macro, it didn't really do what I wanted.

Is there an easy way to get this working? If not, is there a way I can assign names to the rich text controls in my template to run a macro more efficiently?

I thought I read somewhere that it was possible to do a search on a reserved character by putting "" around it. I made the mistake of annotating some appended text fields with "**" (without the quotes) so I would know which records had been added. At some point, I want to remove those two asterisks. . . but, of course, I suddenly realized that Access recognizes an "*" as a wild card meaning something/anything, not the "*" character. So a search using Like "***" or "*'**'" either finds nothing or finds every record with anything in the field.

So the question is, is there a way to search for a literal "**" in Access? OBP. . . are you home today?

I have an excel file with a column with values like 100, 200, 500, 500-02, and 500-04.
Access wants the column to be a number because 500-02 is not one of the first records.

If I use the acImport or acLink I get the same results. Which is an error importing (I get all the data just not the text values in the column) or a null value in the link when view from Access (even though you can open the spreadsheet with excel and see the true data). If I use the import Wizard and change the Field to text it that data is fine.

I also tried acImporting to an existing table with the field set a text but it changes it back to numeric and screws up.

I have a vision impared user and I need a button click to get this data into access.

Thanks for reading my post.

As I stated in my previous post, I'm creating a survey to send out in Word 2003 using text form fields and check box form fields. When typing comments in the text form fields, if the comments go above a certain word count, it is impossible to see what you are typing.

As it appears there is no way to make these text form fields scrollable, it is possible to make the text form field expandable when typing in it?

For a 'Yes/No' data type, my MS Access 2013 does not allow me to change from the default 'check box' to the 'text box' option under lookup field properties - display control. It was originally able to but I think something has happened to it.

The problem is not table or database specific as I have tried other tables and databases. I even reinstalled MS Access to make sure it was not the application's fault. It still exists and I don't know what went wrong.
Could someone please advise?

How can I force the ages to have a leading zero so that they appear in sequence in reports?

I am currently using Word 2003 and have created a template. Within the template are text fields. My current issue is that if I make a change to formatting in one of the text fields, it replicates to all of the text fields. To give an example in the screen shot if I enter text then change the formatting under Point 1 (Project Statement) that change remains with that text field. If I go down to the next form field, and before entering any text, make formatting changes, that replicates to all of the form fields below. Similarly if text is entered first, then a formatting change made i.e. bullet point, that then seems to replicate through to the rest of the text fields. Can someone please explain as to why this is happening? thanks.

Hey there, long time reader first time poster!

(If you know of a great advanced tutorial on Access, please let me know. I know how to set up the basics, now I'd like to know how the program really runs)

I'm currently working on a form that allows users to search for equipment. The category of the equipment is slectable through a combo box, and the searched text is entered in a text field. The results are displayed in a list box.

What've I've tried is using a 'Find' button to enter this sql query into the RowSource of the list box:

Private Sub Equipment_Find_Click()

Me.Equipment_List.RowSource = "SELECT Equipment.Type, Equipment.Manufacturer, Equipment.Model FROM Equipment WHERE (((Equipment." & strQuote & Me.Equipment_Search_Category.Column(0) & strQuote & ")=" & strQuote & Me.Equipment_Find_Text & strQuote & "))ORDER BY Equipment.Type DESC;"

End Sub

The result i get is a pop up window with a text field. If i re-enter the text in that feild the info pops up nicely. What am I doing wrong, and how do i get rid of that popup?

Hey folks. This may sound like a minor problem but give it a read please. I noticed that when I happen to hold my left mouse button down on the desktop and slide it all the way up to the upper left hand corner of the desktop, then a two symbol wide invisible textfield is highlighted (see attached image "bluethingy").

I recall that having come across this anomally in the past that it occorred in conjunction with some malware but remember no details. There is something slowing down my computer at the moment but none of the malware seeking programs (ive gone through the list that majorgeeks recommend) that I have run has taken care of the lag, or this blue thingy. Does anybody have any insight into this blue thingy? Ill send the hijack this file if anyones interested, but am mostly curious about the blue field.

*** Curious about another thing: When visiting websites (using IE) with textfields for me to enter text, in some phases of my computers life the cursor when in this field blinks like a mad dog. This usually lets me know that theres some malware doing its thing and that its time for me to clean up a little. My question is if you have seen this happen: What kind of malware is doing it or where does it reside? - is it a helper? - is it unrelated to IE? Or is it not malware at all and just annoying?

I've been experiencing an annoying issue when navigating through web browsers such as yahoo, google, etc. When using the search engines, I'm often re-directed to some random site that looks like it's either mimicking a search engine or selling something. If I hit the 'back' button enough and re-click on the search item a 2nd time, I'll usually get the page I originally wanted. However, this happens on every search I perform and occurs every time without fail.

Another issue that may be related occurs when in Yahoo!'s email service. I'm often redirected when navitgating in-and-out of email messages. I fear my computer is being used in a malicious way and my security, compromised. None of the anti-virus or spyware tools on my computer have caputerd or identified a problem (yet I KNOW one exists here).

Hey, I'm not sure if there is a solution to this, but is there any way to keep mail merge from striping out all my codes? I have a program that runs mail merge on a document, entering information in various fields, but then I have other form codes throughout the document that need to have information added after the original mail merge runs. The problem is that when mail merge runs the first time, it strips the code out from all the fields.

For example: I work for a medical company. We enter the patient information into our program and run it. The program enters in the patient info into a .doc file that we use as a template. In the footer of this document I have a field code that puts a "Continued..." on the end of every page but the last page. When the mail merge runs and enters in the patient info in the document, it then strips out the codes and my "Continued..." becomes plain text and shows up on the last page.

Any ideas?

I thought I'd install Windows 10 Threshold 2 (not to make the same mistake twice, on a laptop I hardly use this time) to see if the built-in Microsoft apps are now any better than they were in July. Disappointingly, with the exception of being able to turn off 'Conversation View', the Mail app is just as diabolically poor as it was back then. But on top of that, another thing I noticed this time is that when you type a name into the 'To:' field, it doesn't even look up that name / email address from your 'People' app contacts. The auto-complete feature only populates for people you've previously emailed.

So basically, if you haven't emailed someone, it won't show their name despite their details and email address being listed in the 'People' app.

Of course, another problem with not populating the auto-complete addresses from your address book is that if a contact changes their email address and you update their details in the 'People' app, the Mail app will still use the old email address in the autocomplete dropdown, causing you to keep emailing the wrong address.

Did Microsoft seriously release a Mail app that can't even look up names in your contacts list?

Not sure if this is possible, but here goes.

I have SBC Yahoo DSL at home and use Outlook to get my mail. I also have a a regular yahoo mail account, the free one. Is it possible to just have my SBC Yahoo accoutn receive the other yahoo mail as well? I read on their site that I can use my SBC Yahoo account to recieve any POP mail account. IS regular free yahoo a POP mail account?

Been having this issue for a bit now. When I go to or I get this screen pictured below. Not what you'd normally see. Same thing happens whether I'm using IE 7 or Firefox.When I run an updated Ad-Aware scan it seems to go away for a bit but quickly returns. And I'm not visiting any odd sites that would cause this.I've run Ad Aware as previously mentioned, Spybot, Superantispyware, MalwareByte, and used CCleaner. I've run Hijackthis and don't see anything odd either.I thought I was pretty good at removing this on my own but this has me stumped.Here's pics....Firefox: 7: when I click on view --> source in IE 7 on that "page". are my logs as required per instructions...DDS (Ver_09-01-19.01) - NTFSx86 Run by Shawn Oen at 18:02:19.98 on Sun 01/25/2009Internet Explorer: 7.0.5730.13Microsoft Windows XP Professional 5.1.2600.3.1252.1.1033.18.2039.1314 [GMT -6:00]============== Running Processes ===============C:\WINDOWS\system32\svchost -k DcomLaunchsvchost.exeC:\WINDOWS\System32\svchost.exe -k netsvcsC:\WINDOWS\system32\svchost.exe -k WudfServiceGroupsvchost.exesvchost.exeC:\Program Files\Lavasoft\Ad-Aware\aawservice.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\spoolsv.exec:\program files\commo...

My problem is with the latest version of Yahoo Mail. I have recently upgraded to this version and initially messengers for Yahoo and Facebook opened there. But then these are not opening anymore. Whenever i click on the 'New Chat button, i get the message that "Yahoo Messenger is currently loading" or "Yahoo messenger is currently not available".

The biggest problem is that this new version does not allow one to go back to an earlier version. I have another yahoo account also where i luckily did not upgade to the new version. Here yahoo messenger easily opens in Yahoo Mail.

Any solutions?

Have your friends recently texted you about spam originating from your Yahoo Mail account? If so, that may be because you (and many of your friends) were hacked.

Yahoo acknowledged Thursday that attackers now own an undisclosed number of usernames and passwords to Yahoo Mail accounts. In a blog post, Jay Rossiter, the senior vice president in charge of Yahoo?s platforms and personalization products, wrote that the attackers had most likely hacked an external, third-party database and obtained the information there.

?We regret this has happened and want to assure our users that we take the security of their data very seriously,? Rossiter wrote.

Yahoo did not say how many accounts had been compromised, nor when the attacks had taken place. However, the company says it began notifying users that the attacks had taken place, and had begun using second sign-in verification to allow users to re-secure their accounts. Users who have been affected, unsurprisingly, will be asked to change their password, and may receive an SMS text to that effect, Yahoo said.Click to expand...

Hello all,

There was already a post on this issue but no straight answer that leaded to a solution. I'm having some weird issue with Yahoo web pages. Initially, when trying to open the browser will display a webpage selling online space for storage, the website was I thought it was some kind of virus and try numerous things to get rid of it but the weird thing is that if I plug this laptop to any other network with a cable or wireless, yahoo web sites will open.

Previously I was able to open yahoo mail by entering any other yahoo website but now nothing will open and will display "page not found". When I try the icon changes to a weird circle shaped image and now the website shows up as

I got so pissed up of not being able to fix this that I reimaged my PC thinking it had some virus I couldn't remove but to my surprise as soon as I tried the website again i got the same problem!. This is some problem at the wireless router but can't figure out what, I've been through all the settings of the wireless router and don't get to the problem, any other website opens ok. Any ideas?

I have been having problems signing into my yahoo e-mail and on to yahoo messenger. Everything was working fine this past Friday. When I turned my computer on,I was not able to log in. I kept getting an invalid id or password error message. I have not changed my password. I even went and opened a new yahoo e-mail account.I am able to sign into that,but yahoo messenger I cant. Even with the new account. Has anyone else been having problems? How can I find out what is wrong?

Answer:Yahoo e-mail and yahoo messenger issues?

Hi there, have you found a way back into your email? It's doing almost the same thing to me. My messenger has my password saved, so I'm able to check my email through there, but no other way. It won't accept what I type as my password.

When BT decided to drop its links to Yahoo, I set up a separate Yahoo email account and used this successfully until recently. In the last couple of weeks, however, every time I try to log in to Yahoo mail I am redirected to BT Yahoo. BT Yahoo does not recognise my "details" presumably neither the email address nor the most recent Yahoo password. Yahoo help (on their web page) say that according to their records my email account is with BT. My husband and I do have a BROADBAND account. The same email address, originally linked to BT Yahoo, was a subaccount of his As the fact that I only had a sub account, even though on a separate computer, was causing all sorts of other minor issues with my email. I wanted to get rid of it and when BT announced they were separating from Yahoo, I opted for a paid Yahoo address, using the same one. I suppose I should have changed the email address when I transferred from BT Yahoo to Yahoo. But there was never any problem using the old one until last week.

I do not seem to be able to find out what the position of Yahoo is vis a vis BT Yahoo. Are they now re-united ? Should I forget the Yahoo mail address and resign myself to losing all my records in YAHOO MAIL and take up the offer of a new free email address from BT ? Or will I end up with the old problem of only being allowed a sub account. It would not matter so much now as I have other addresses functioning see last para below. However, some of my older contacts are still using ... Read more

Each and everytime I try to log in to my email, I can see an advertisement by yahoo saying that they have Yahoo Mail Beta, which is 2x faster than the current mail, and we can try it because it is available in our mail. But I still can't see that kind of BETA option in my mail. Actually how to activate the Beta version? Is it good? My emails are very important to me, so I don't need anything to get messed up.

Thank you.

I have an excel sheet with dates displayed in European format dd/mm/yyyy :-)I import it into a letter ("you have been a member since") and it imports in American mm/dd/yyyy.I can't see how to properly format the merge field

Answer:Mail merge a date field screws the formatting!

It all has to do with how your Operating System Date is set up.If your in the US then the default is mm/dd/yyyyYou can change how Excel Displays the date to dd/mm/yyyy, but it Stores the date in the System Date format of mm/dd/yyyy.When you import the date to Word, the System Date format is used.See here for how to change the format:

The title says it all. I can stop it if I click, at the correct moment, on the red X at the side of the browser's address box.

Most infuriating and I have no idea how to stop it doing this.

Can you help please?

My OS is XP SP3 Home with all critical updates. Browser is IE8.
