Saving a mail merge document as a normal document

Question: Saving a mail merge document as a normal document

Hi....
I'm using word 2010.
I have a Mailmerge document (actually a company letter with header and footer, used by a package called "Cash4Windows" [C4W]). This document usually has the recipients name and address etc. inserted by C4W.
The document is a template - "xxx.dotx".
What I want to do is strip out the Mailmerge fields and save the document as a normal Word 2010 document, 'cos the User wants to have a blank standard company document available.
I've spent a long time fiddling with the Header and Footer to get just what the User wanted, and I know i could just cut-n-paste the Header and Footer into a new document, then save it as "xxx.docx", but when I looked on various help sites the normal method in Word 2010 seems to be
on the ribbon tab
Select Mailings
Select "Start Mail Merge"
Select "Normal Word Document"
then save the Word document.
I've tried this and it has absolutely no effect, as when I close and reopen Word and select the previously saved document, I still get the "Opening the document will run the following SQL command" splash screen!
I've tried saving the "normalised" document with various different extensions, but nothing seems to get rid of the SQL.
I've also tried opening the VBA editor (Alt+F11) to see if I can find the SQL, thinking that if I can delete the SQL it might cause Word to avoid the prompt, but I can't even find the SQL!!!
I know I'm getting obsessed with this issue, but PLEASE can anyone explain WHY I keep getting the SQL warning screen (not morally, I want to know what causes it to be displayed), WHY Mailings/Start Mail Merge/Normal Document seems to do nothing, and WHERE the SQL lives.
Any help will be gratefully received....

This morning when I tried to access a mail merge document the follwing came upInvoices is a mail merge document. Word cannot find its data source.C:\...My data Sources\Customers.mdb.What does this mean even when I tried to run my back up copy the same message appeared. In the end I had to reinstall all the addresses. Is there any why I can print these out or save them on a disc in case this happens again.

Answer:Mail merge document

It looks like the ODBC connection between the database and the word file had been lost. In some cases these can be setup as system variabls in other cases they may be document specific.If you had gone to the mail merge helper you may have been able to re-set your datasource.I think the message is basically saying "can't read/find the database" so can't merge anything.

When saving a Word 2007 document as a webpage (htm, html), an extra folder is automatically created besides the hmtl document itself. This folder contains background information like pictures, wallpaper etc. Is there a way to prevent that folder from being created in the first place? I've got Word 2000 on another computer, and when I save my word documents as html files over there, that extra folder is not generated. The only time that folder is created in 2000 is if my documents contain pictures, wallpaper etc. In Word 2007, it is created all the time, even though my documents are just plain text.
 

Answer:Solved: Word 2007, saving document as html document: how to get rid of extra folder?

Managed to find the solution, it was very simple after all. One has to save the document as a filtered webpage and click "yes" when a box pops up warning you that you will use certain featuers which are specific to Office2007, such as the background. Then the document will save without that extra folder and files.

How can one make a mail-merge document undeletable, but still have it merge (with an Access query)?

Have tried setting the "read-only" property. MS Help on the subject of "read-only" says initially "To prevent unauthorized changes OR DELETION"... but you can delete a read-only document any time you want.

So the question is: Is there a way to make a document undeletable except by password? And if you impose a password on it, will it work as a merge document?
 

Answer:Make mail-merge document undeletable

No, Don. But this can be done by rights on the server folder in which the file is stored.

The thing is...you should make it a template. Then, File-New to access it. That way, it is less likely to be deleted...

We have several Word documents (PO's, Quotes, etc.) that currently are used with ACT! to do mail merge (only to import contact info to a single document). We are moving to Prophet (which works with Outlook) and want to continue using these documents. Office help says you have to have matching versions of Outlook/Word (we don't).
Is there a way to make Outlook 2003 merge contacts as needed into these Word documents without upgrading everyone to Word 2003?
Thanks.

I have word 2010 and have created a source document in mail merge. I cannot print the source document out which contains about 40 lines individuals with data like email address, telephone numbers etc. How can I do print the source document

Answer:Print source document in mail merge Word 201-

Hi if you created the source file using the merge wizard it would have asked you to name it and save it. It would have saved the source file (if you didn't tell it otherwise) inC:\Users\yourusername\Documents\My Data SourcesIs this what you did? If so, can you find the file that was created?The default format would be .mdb which is an MS Access database.If this is the case your best bet to print the information is to complete the mail merge. If you can, the best way to create a source file is using excel which most people find to be a little friendlier than Access.Once you find your source file or recreate it in Excel you can run your mail merges. If you need help with that, just ask - we're happy to try.

So maybe it's late and I'm cranky, but I didn't see this thread already.

I'm trying to mail merge my Outlook Contacts/Address book into a printed document to carry between computers. It works great using "use address book" and looks fabulous if I do say so myself.

Hi, I am really hoping someone can help.

I am working on a MS Word mail merge document (whose format I do control). I need to populate a table on my document that lists the Fund #, Name and Value for up to 7 funds (3 columns and up to 7 rows). However, they do not want to have any empty rows in the table - if there are only 3 funds in the datasource, only 3 rows should show in the table.

Hi All,

First time poster here and pretty much a beginner. Here's the problem: I have a number of martial arts articles, each one a separate ms publisher document. I would like to merge them into one complete document. I am not finding any way to do this in Windows 7. So I began a cut and paste into one doc. At first it would copy and save easily. I get to page 96 and the damned thing won't save. It quits responding and I lose all the additional work. This is a real pisser.

So, is there:

Any way to merge them in the existing system?

Any download program that isn't illegal that will allow me to merge documents within Windows 7?

Is there a patch or something like that I can download to fix the inability to save the document once it gets up to page 96?

Any help would be appreciated and don't forget to talk to a newbie regarding computers. I have a couple of friends who talk "geek speak" to me and I damned near go into a coma each time.

thanks in advance,

I have done typing over the Internet for years. My regular computer is in being fixed and they have given me a loaner. The only strange thing about it is that when I used my own disk to load Word 2003 on the loaner computer, it came up with its own product code - you know those letters and numbers you have to put in -- anyway, I tried to enter my own, but it would not work. I had to use the ones that automatically came up. I don't know how they got there. The only thing I can think of is that the previous owner of the computer had loaded Word and that this was his product code!

Anyway, my work requires the use of templates that are merge documents. I have to install a certain SQL file in C:\WINDOWS\Temp. The file is there. I have checked. But when I open a document it says its looking for the SQL file in C:\WINDOWS\Temp -- but it can't find it.

I have tried and tried all morning - emailing the company back and forth in the UK and it just will not work. I am completely baffled. The file is there - the path is correct and yet it says Word cannot find it.

Does anyone have any suggestions? The only thing I can think of is that the previous owner - the owner of that product code - had some kind of administrative blocking on the computer.

Anyway, I am not making money and would like to figure it out so appreciate any help.
 

Answer:Word 2003 merge document problem

Hi Purley,

How did you get the SQL file into ...temp?

You need to have the SQL file point to a data source; the SQL is just a filter against a data source somewhere else and that connection needs to be established first.

Is the source database on another Server e.g. at the Company you are doing work for?

You should contact the company's IT admin to make sure you have connectivity.

Hi guys,

So here's what I'm trying to do. Basically I need to create a word document report from data in an access database. The access database basically contains risk items for different entities. So, the report will contain all the risk items for one specific entity and a summary.

1 High Risk

6 Low Risks

Answer:Saving MS Document

Hello,

I'm a bit confused about your problem. You state that the document doesn't save. Do you mean that the changes you wrote in the document aren't saving? Or do you mean that when you save it, the changes you have made ARE saved but it is saved in a way that allows you to make changes to the document, hence the blinking cursor?

First choice will normally be whatever's appropriate to what you are trying to change. So if you're in Word, it should normally be as a Word document, if you're on the web, it will be as a web page.If you're in Word (you don't say) - go to Tools - Options - Save and change the default to whatever you want.

If it's not a CD-RW you can't update files already burned to the CD.

If it's a "write once" CD I believe you can add more files if you did not do a "finalized" burn.

Answer:Document Saving Location

2 ways to do this:

1. On your desktop.. Right-Click on the 'My Documents' folder and then click on 'Properties'. Under Target folder location you can chose 'Find Target' and change the location there to the folder you created. It will still be called 'My Documents' but it will be the location of the folder you created.. this way is good to do if you have several user accounts because you can do it for all the accounts and everybodys 'my documents' folder will be the same location.

2. On your desktop.. Right-Click on the 'My Documents' folder and then click on 'Rename'. Now type the new name of the folder there.

Answer:saving new document as WORD

In Internet Explorer (assuming that is your browser of choice) right click a balnk part of the IE toolbar at the top and select "customize"

Then add the "edit button" (assuming it's not already on the toolbar) and it should offer you the choice of "editing" the webpage in Word.

If on the other hand you are "Saving as" a .txt file, simply change your file associations to open txt files with Word will achieve a similar result.

As it stands, from reading your post its quite unclear exactly what you are doing.

I have two questions regarding documents created in Word 2007...

1) Can links be created within a Word document? For example, can I click on and item my table of contents and have the document jump to that particular section of the document?

2) Also, is there a way to make sections of the document hidden until the user clicks a specific word or graphic in the document?

I'd like to specify a particular instruction and include a "Show example" link that would make a detailed example appear for those who needed the extra help.

Thanks everyone!

Answer:Word 2007 - Links within a document? Hide/Show sections of a document?

If you created table of contents through References - Table of Contents, you can hold Ctrl and click on the item in that table, word will take you there. This feature is standard.

Also, to navigate inside document you can use bookmark option.
Insert bookmarks. Word 2010 Bookmarks
Then insert Hyperlink - in the window select second tab "Place in This Document" and choose your bookmark.

As for hiding parts of document, I do not think that is possible.
You can create that in HTML document with javascript, but not in Word document.

If you leave Word open with a document (no matter what size) and come back to it later this is when the problem happens. I started to get around it my saving first then closing, but this no longer works.

This might be kind of tricky.

We're trying to streamline our RFQ-to-Quote process, which currently utilizes a combination of digital forms and hand-written forms passed among several departments. My boss asked me to modify the RFQ form to save him some typing (because he has to retype all the information in the final Quote), and I--not understanding the complexity of the process--very stupidly told him that it could be done fairly simply using form fields and bookmarks. He's been kind enough to grant me a lot of leniency because for him anything would be better than the current situation, so as long as I can improve on what we use now, he'll be happy.

I thought about creating form templates for each of the departments, then as the original RFQ circulated from one department to the next subsequent forms would be appended to it to create a rolling document. I'm not too happy with the that idea; there's all sorts of room for user error. I thought about creating a single document template containing every department's form, but a) I don't want any single department to be able to modify information gathered during another department's process, and b) certain departments must generate a variable number of copies of their form.

I told my boss the best way to accomplish a secure and low-maintenance RFQ-to-Quote would be to create a stand-alone Quote Generator application, but we both agree the effort is not condusive to the timeframe by whic... Read more

Hi all.

The other day whilst in the throws of fixing another unrelated problem I came across a strange and annoying Word Document problem.

When I bought this word document up it present a very unusual icon. It was grayed out and part of the title contained a ~$ then the name of the document.

When I tried to open it, the word document only opened up to the gray page just before it should turn white displaying the text, and there it froze.

Nothing worked after that! The freeze was so bad that the only way to close the window was to turn the computer off at the tower.

After rebooting I tried it again 2 more times with the same problem freeze occurring in the Word document.

Today I again found another document that caused the same problem, this time the icon for that document was normal but right beside this icon was another malformed grayed out ~$(name) icon.

When I tried to open either of the 2 icons I got the same freezing up problem, just as before.

I tried a previously suggested step in that I opened "Word" and from there navigated to where the bad files were located.

In turn I only hi-lighted each, and at the bottom of that window clicked on the arrow for the drop down box.

I was advised that one of the presented options was to repair the file. No such option was present.

So there you have it. Any advice on this problem please?

Hi all.

I may resurrect it at a later stage if the problem re-presents it's self.

In a nut shell. I spent a lot of time today searching sites and performing tests including searches on my computer program.

I ascertained that all the aforementioned "defective " Word documents originated in the same folder. After performing several search functions with the criteria as ~$.doc no other such files were found on my computer, other that the already mentioned.

All tests suggested would not repair the said documents.

I have now deleted the offenders and I will monitor the situation. If I run into problems again I will re-post.

Thanks anyway.

Do you have Adobe Standard by any chance? If so, you can open that program and scan the document by importing from the scanner, then send the scanned document, which will be a PDF file, as an attachment.

The issue is when I go to save the PFD as a .doc format (word) it converts without issue. But, when I go to open the word format, the word document has nearly doubled in pages and the file size has grown vastly.

The original PDF is 60 pages, but when it is saved in .doc format the word doc increases to 120ish pages. The reason for this is easily noticable too, it leaves in a blank page nearly every other page for some reason. Any ideas why this is happening or what could be done to remedy this issue? Thanks!

Hello,

Was curious if anyone else has heard of this problem. When working with a word document that I have opened and (saved) closed many times, I now open up the same document, still named the same and it is blank.
Weirder still, one of the word documents "somehow" changed the icon over to an excel icon and that is blank as well when opened in excel. Tried for the heck of it to rename but that of course made it completely unreadable.
The only rhyme or reason I can get from this is it seemed to all happen on the same day Mar. 17th.

So has anyone ever heard of word or excel deleting the contents of your document / spreadsheet when you save or do I start the standard virus and malware scanning?

Office 2003 Professional SP3

thanks,

Answer:Word Document blank after saving

Hi Spline,
Is the file extension still .doc or did it change to .xls? What happens if you right click the document and choose "Open With" and select Notepad? If there's still content there, you should see it, even though it might be garbled.

I keep a journal and try to update it daily. This morning I updated the journal and got an error message that Normal.dot was being overwritten and did I want to do that? No. Then I got another message that said my file was read only. Hmm. I look again and it says Normal.dot is read only. I click on cancel, and everything closes. Curious, I open my document again--and it can't be found. I looked in temp, Recent, everywhere I could think and the document is gone, though it's listed in Recent. When I do a search it lists the document as 548kb, but when I click on the link, it says it can't be found, and when I click on "open containing folder" there's a shortcut but no document.

I have a backup from a couple of days ago, but since I'd updated the journal I'd really like to find it again. Is there any way to do that?

And yes, I realize World 2003 is an old program, but it's worked for me up to now, and I don't like the newer versions.

I was working on a Word document that someone sent me by email in form of rar and saved the document. I now can't find the revised file and I have lost about 8 hours of work. Any ideas on where I can find this file? I looked in the email that was originally sent, but it is still the old file. I have also done searching on my computer with no luck. Help, I'm desperate!!! I have Word 2007. Please give me reply as soon as possible.
 

Answer:Cannot find the saved revised document in Word document

If you were only hitting "Save" and not "Save As" the document is likely, unfortunately, gone. You can try opening Word by itself and going through recent documents to see if it shows up. If you opened it directly from the email and the email was in Outlook, you might be able to find it in the Outlook Secure Temp Folder. To get to this folder, the easiest way is to send yourself a PDF file, open the PDF from the email then go to File | Properties and on the General tab (this is from memory, so I might be off a little bit) you'll find a location that you can click on. In this folder, you have a slight chance of finding the modified file. The only other option you have, that I can think of, would be digging through your temp folders hoping to find a .tmp or .doc file in there that has the content, but I give that about a .01% chance of happening. Good Luck!

On my previous computer with Windows 2000, I was able to make incremental backups of a Microsoft Word document while it was being created by me. The advantage of this was that if an "accident" happened and the document was lost or corrupted before it was completed or saved to a folder, the partially completed document could be retrieved from a special folder somewhere in C-drive. I was able to specify how often a new backup was created (ex.: every 3 minutes, ex.; every 10 minutes, etc.). It is possible that this special folder also contained backups of all previously saved Word documents, which were also being re-backed up every few minutes. -- I cannot find any reference to this on my new computer (Windows XP and Microsoft Word 2002) in the Windows search engine, or in the Word user interface "Help". I cannot remember how I found this feature on my previous (W~2000) computer. -- Thanks

Hi,

I work at a small non-profit and we have updated two computers with new computers running Windows 7. We use MS Word 2003. I have checked all threads on forum related to this issue, but nothing seems to correct our problem. I would be grateful for any help.

Description of issue: With a Word document open, one should be able to click "File" > "Send To" > Mail Recipient As Attachment", or any of the other mail options, and have the email composition window of Thunderbird pop up. What happens is that Word is attempting to send the attachment via Windows Live Mail. The computer basically freezes. If you try and abort or get out of Word, and error pops up stating you can't close Word until the email has been sent. Finally, you have to force a shut down of the computer.

Internet Explorer shows Thunderbird as default email client. I have check all of the other obvious places for setting the default email client, but I can't seem to find a conflict anywhere on the computer showing Windows Live Email as default client.

As a side note, this employee was using Outlook Express as their email client prior to the computer upgrade and all setting were imported into Windows Live Mail, which was initially used. The employee did not like Windows Live Mail, so I installed Thunderbird. It is used as the default email client and the only issue has been with Word.

This problem started "out of the blue" a couple of months ago. I had a tech look at it, and the only solution he came up with was to create a new user account, which worked. The problem has just come back. I can't find anything online to resolve it, so hopefully somebody here can help.

When trying to save a document (could be from OpenOffice or LibreOffice or even a PDF), the Save As dialog opens and then immediately freezes. There is no way to escape--I have to "X" out of it and the document app crashes.

No new software has been installed since creating the new user account. We use Norton 360 and also Malware Bytes for protection.

This is a business computer, so obviously we need to get this resolved ASAP. Please help!

There is a known issue with this happening in LibreOffice on Ubuntu- Try upgrading to the latest version.

Also, get the absolute latest version of Acrobat or Acrobat Reader you can find

I found this, which is related:

Save/Print as PDF crashes Word - Microsoft Community

Make the error show up again, force the program out, and show us the Event Logs from exactly when it happened, maybe there is something in there that can tell us why it is happening.

I know OpenOffice has a Windows version, is that the same as LibreOffice? You might be better off just buying a stand alone version of Microsoft Word, if you can- That way you can save to PDF's and there won't be any problems. Both Office 2010 and 2013 have good Save to PDF functions.

Often I bring to the screen a windows 10 existing document for rereading and revision. After I've made the revisions, I click save. On my former windows system, that would save the corrections. On windows 10, this often leads to "Save as". I have to write in the title of the document, say where I want it saved again, then click on save. The next message is that that document exists; do I want this document to replace existing document. I click okay. Then the next message often is that it can't be saved , but will be repaired next time I log in. I click on "okay". When I log in again, the revisions are not saved. I have many glitches with the windows 10, and I'm slowly dealing with them. I can't seem to solve this one. How do I work on an existing document and save changes or additions I've made.

So when I save something on a floppy it also creates a backup on the computers hard drive. (Saves file on Floppy A:\letter.doc and creates a backup on hard drive c:\backups\letter.bac)

If I save an Excel file to my server, I frequently get a 'Document not saved' error. The file does not save and a TMP file appears in the save location instead.

I'm using Word 2007 as a part of Office 2007 on an Acer tablet running Windows 8.1 with all the latest updates.

I mostly use the tablet in portrait mode using the Hot Virtual Keyboard OSK. I'm pretty happy with the standard "Print Layout" view from a functional standpoint, but I wanted to try the "Web Layout" view to see if this would circumvent a bug with the OSK that causes the word prediction list to disappear. I'm about 100% certain the Word problem itself is completely unrelated to the OSK.

Here's the issue. Everything works fine when I'm using the "Print Layout" mode. But when I switch to "Web Layout," and then try to save my document at any point after this (including immediately after), Word will crash with the following error:

"Microsoft Office Word has stopped working

Windows is checking for a solution to the problem..."

Of course it does not find a solution.

I've run the Office Diagnostics, and no problem has been found. If I restart Word and let it do "repairs" to the document, then I fall down a rabbit hole into further, stranger problems. If, however, I delete any "repairs" and just reopen the original document, right back in "Print Layout" view, everything is back to normal again.

I would very much like to be able to use the "Web Layout" view, but of course right now I can't.

I don't even know where to begin in terms of trouble-shooting this issue,... Read more

Answer:Windows 2007 Crashes when saving a document under Web Layout view

Unless you plan on publishing on-line, I never found much use for the Web Layout view. Just a guess, but maybe the prediction was never made to work with the combo of the on screen keyboard and the Web view. Hopefully someone who does this can either verify yes or no for the function.

I am trying to save a word document containing a .oft font as a editable template to send to the office, and the font will not display correctly when saved, it converts into a different one but still has the downloaded font name displayed. The font is installed on all computers, confused as to why this is happening; would this be related to the font license? It is listed as editable? I have read you can't embed .oft fonts in word, which i presume would solve the problem(?). I was wondering if anyone knows how to fix this and embed the font or at-least save it so the font displays correctly.
Thanks

I am a teacher in Tennessee and I need to find a software that will enable me to edit and change a scanned document. I have some old tests and worksheets that I inherited from the teacher that had my room before me. I would like to make some minor changes to the documents without having to retype the entire set of documents. (Things like change the date and the teacher name on the heading, etc...)

Is there a software out there that will allow me to scan a document in and then alter it? These are not copyrighted materials, so that is not an issue.

Preferably, I would like a freeware or shareware or trial version of something to make sure I can navigate it before I shell out a chunk of cash to purchase something.

As a teacher, it is important to me that my materials look professionally done, so I would prefer to edit them on a computer rather than use white out and pen.

thank you so much

Answer:document editing of scanned document?

You can use OCR, i.e text recognition. I'm not 100% sure if Adobe Reader does it, but Adobe Acrobat Pro definitely does. There's probably a few other free alternatives out there as well.

Hi, I am trying to edit somethings in a XML document and save it as a notepad or wordpad document. I open it with notepad or wordpad and it allows me to make the changes. However, each time I save it after opening it in notepad or wordpad, it then reverts back to been a XML document.

Answer:XML document won't save as notepad document?

In Notepad/Wordpad, choose Save As and save it with a .txt extension, or else make a copy and change the extension of that from .xml to .txt

Answer:i can not send a document as a pdf or e-mail

Does your email work at all (without attaching documents)?The message about POP3 implies that something is wrong with your email accounts setup.

Can a Word Doc. be E Mailed?

Answer:Word Document E Mail

Yes, just add it as an attachment to an e-mail message. Or, depending on the Word version, it will have a "Send To" option, in the "File" drop down menu with several e-mail options.

One note, most but not everyone is able to read MS Word documents. Make sure whoever you send it to can open it.

I would like to put an e-mail hyperlink in an Excel 2000 workbook that will not just open an Outlook Express message box (or whatever is your e-mail program), but will also simultaneously attach the document to the e-mail message. I can find nothing in Excel Help that says you can do this. Is there a way to do it?
 

Answer:E-mail hyperlink that will attach document

I don't know about a link, but this can be done with a command button and code.
Click on View, Toolbars, Control Toolbox. Click on the Command Button icon, and then click on the form where you want the button to appear. Tou can move the button anywhere you want to. then right-click it and select View Code. you should see a sheet open with
Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()

End SubClick to expand...

Insert the following in that empty space between the 2 lines.
ActiveSheet.Shapes("Email").Select
Application.Dialogs(xlDialogSendMail).ShowClick to expand...
So it should now look like
Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
ActiveSheet.Shapes("Email").Select
Application.Dialogs(xlDialogSendMail).Show
End SubClick to expand...

You can rename the button by right-clicking it and selecting commandbutton object, edit.

Good luck.
I know that you could probably have the To field automatically filled, but I can't quite get that right now. Maybe someone else can help out with that.

That's a good question.

Were you expecting these Word documents?

If not, it's inadvisable to, as many viruses come as attachments with hidden extensions like *.doc.scr, or something like that.

There must be something unique about the content of the document. Could be a specific format or control.

Also how can I make the mail merge button work on frmNz? I would like to be able to select companies from the subform and then press this button. I would then like this button to open MS Word with the mail merge facility, allowing me to send a letter (for example) to the selected companies.

I just sent an e-mail to a doctor but it came back undelivered--apparently the address was out of date. Rather than type it all over again, I assume I can simply copy my e-mail text to a new Word document using the Edit feature. What are the steps to doing that?
Davide

Answer:How To Copy E-mail Text To A New Word Document

That should be quite straightforward. Open your email client and find the original email - there will probably be a copy in the "Sent" or similar named folder. Double click the email to open it in a full window.Press Ctrl+A (i.e. hold down the 'Ctrl' key and press the 'A' key at the same time.) Then press Ctrl+C You can close the email window and minimise the email client at this point.Open word with a new blank document and press Ctrl+V the text from your email should appear in the Word document, the font will be changed to the default Word font but otherwise the text will be the same.Hope that's what you were after.

Is there way to transfer a document's material to an email and keep the formatting? I have graphics laid out in the word document and I can't figure out a way to keep the correct images & layout and transfer it to email. Is there another program I should be using? I need the shapes and graphics (some of which serve as hyperlinks) for the email, which is an electronic flyer.

Answer:Transfer from Word document 2010 to E-mail

I'd save the document as a PDF which would retain all formatting etc, and attach it to an e-mail. You can have embedded hyperlinks in it to still make it active linked to websites etc. http://voices.yahoo.com/converting-word-pdf-tips-preserve-hyperlinks-6360488.html
