Macro to email word doc as attatchment thru outlook

Question: Macro to email word doc as attatchment thru outlook

I have created an evaluation in MS Word and would like to include a checkbox at the end of the evaluation in which once clicked on (using a macro), the form is sent via outlook as an attachment to a specific email address. I have looked through tons of macros and VB scripts but cannot come up with exactly what I am looking for. I'm pretty sure this is an easy code to come up with, but I am not that strong in using VB. If anyone can help, please let me know!!!

Preferred Solution: Macro to email word doc as attatchment thru outlook

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

I have a word document that includes a form the user must fill in. I want to create a button that will do all of the following:
1. Update all fields
2. Attach the updated word document to an email
3. Enter an address I have stored in the macro into the To field of the email.

I have one module which does the first part:
Sub CommandButton1_Click()
Dim oStory As Range
For Each oStory In ActiveDocument.StoryRanges
oStory.Fields.Update
If oStory.StoryType <> wdMainTextStory Then
While Not (oStory.NextStoryRange Is Nothing)
Set oStory = oStory.NextStoryRange
oStory.Fields.Update
Wend
End If
Next oStory
Set oStory = Nothing
End Sub

I found that if I add this to the before End Sub it attaches the updated Word document to an email:
Application.Options.SendMailAttach = True 'Or False
ActiveDocument.SendMail

However, I can't figure out how have it put a specific address into the To field of the document.

So I tried another tact. I have the email address as a hyperlink in the document, and set a bookmark at the hyperlink. Then I created a module that will go to the bookmark and open the hyperlink. However, this will not add the document as an attachment:

Sub Open_Hyperlink()
Selection.GoTo What:=wdGoToBookmark, Name:="hyperlink"
With ActiveDocument.Bookmarks
.DefaultSorting = wdSortByName
.ShowHidden = False
End With

Selection.Range.Hyperlinks(1).Follow NewWindow:=False, AddHistory:=True
End Sub

Answer:Word Macro to attach doc to email, then send address email

I found a solution, but I think it is a bit bulky. It seems to work but I'd love to know if there is a simpler solution:

Any advice please

Answer:email with pdf attatchment

If Adobe warns that the file is corrupted or problematic then the file did not get recieved properly. It has to be resent. Nothing you can do.

Is there anyway I can find out if the attachment was deleted before I got it?Thanks

Every now and then when i send a Word doc as an attachment to a client, they will say they recieve the document but when they open it it's blank. But not every time, its very random. It's weird i sent one yesterday to a co-worker, he got the doc but it was blank. so i sent the same doc to him a half-hour later and he got it and it opened just fine. What's up with that?
 

Answer:Blank Word Docs as Attatchment

Sometimes this will occur when the document in question is actually still 'open' on your computer and the cached version can be interfering.

Another option that this would be occuring is when it's trying to 'upload' your attachment file but it isn't given enough time to fully attach itself (most common with web-based e-mails).

Which e-mail client are you using to send the e-mails?

Answer:Opening a email attatchment

From what I can find xls files are created by Microsoft Excel. You would have to have it on your system to open the attachment.

watch out for this new malware attack method by email
http://myonlinesecurity.co.uk/invoice-519658-colin-fox-pdf-malware/

This email contains a genuine PDF which has embedded scripts that will infect you. So far none of the automatic analysis tools can find any malicious content but it is trying to send multicast messages.

I am being told that this evil pdf when opened in adobe reader drops a word document containing macros, so DO NOT SAVE OR OPEN THIS PDF FILE: Just delete the email and any attachment as soon as it appears in your inbox. There appear to be several different versions of the PDF malware dropper although all are named the same and every copy that I have seen is the same file size ( 23kb) The malicious Macro inside the dropped word document ( VirusTotal) from one of the malicious PDFs downloads and executes -> hxxp://bepminhchi.com/83/61.exe ( virus total). There will almost certainly be different download locations depending on which version of the PDF you originally received.

Luckily enough Adobe reader in recent versions has Protected view automatically enabled and unless you press the button to enable all features, you will be safe from this attack
If you do enable all features, then you have a second chance to protect yourself, by pressing either cancel or never allow opening files of this type on the pop up warning.

Ok, Im out of Ideas. My boss (uh oh) has estimates made in Excel XP emailed to him (Outlook XP) everyday from 6 locations.

Everything was working fine but now, 3 of the 6 attachments will not open nor save. When trying to save them, I get the error message, "Outlook could not save the file." which to me would indicate wrx permissions for the drive or directory.

When you try to Open Attachment, I get the error message "Cannot create file: [filename]. Right-click the folder you want to create the file in, and then click Properties on the shortcut menu to check your permissions on the folder."

Ok, once again, this would indicate a permissions issue. Only problem is the account has Administrator rights for all drives and mapped drives.

Hello, I just recently started receiving an error when trying to create a new email message, new document, etc through a word-based application such as Outlook and Word 2003. The error I was receiving:

The function you are attempting to run contains macro or content that requires macro language support. When the software was installed, you (or your administrator) chose not to install support for macros or controls.

Please note that this error just flared up recently and I have using these programs for a good 3 months without receiving this error. I have tried installing all the macro features in Word. I have also tried turning down the macro security levels to low. Thank you for your time!

G'Day everyone,

Firstly, thank you for this super-awesome website. I can spend my whole day trawling through the gems here which make my life so much more easier!!

I have a question:

I am trying to write an Outlook 2007 Macro which has me a bit stumped.

We get a system generated email which tells us which staff is late for which department. The Managers then send an email to their departments only extracting the info from this email.

I have a rule currently set up which dumps this daily email to the "Sick and Lates" folder. I then go there everyday at 9:30 am, copy the names of the guys in my department and send an email to the DL.

I am trying to automate this so that whenever a sick and late email arrives, Outlook will pick up the names of the people in my department only, chuck them in a separate email addressed to a specific distribution list and fire away.

I had a look at other posts but am stumped.....help, please?

Hi,

I am developing an add-in for outlook that consists of creating a customized send button next to the standard one. when outlook is configured to use the word editor, when I add the customized send button to the command bar of the mail in edit mode, the add-in is also added in word document. The reason is that the word editor is activated in outlook. How can I tell my add-in not to add the button in word as well. I don't want to deactivate the editor word. There must be a way how to detect the opened application. I searched for my problem on the internet and people said to test if the kind of the document is word mail or word document. Here's part of my code that didn't work correctly:


//event triggered when item is opened

private void Inspectors_NewInspector(Outlook.Inspector i)

{

//some code to test if it is a maiitem, etc.



Word.Document document = (Word.Document)i.WordEditor;





if (document.Kind.ToString() == "wdDocumentEmail")

}

I have 2 options in mind:

How do you keep a macro running until you reach the end of a page? Currently I just hold down the control or Alt keys. I have long documents so holding down the Alt + whatever key is not always practical.

Here is a sample macro. How do I make the macro run until the macro reaches (in this case) the top of the page?

I think the "do until" feature is used in the code but I do not know the syntax for "do until".

Code:
Sub DelimitBoldSentenceOnRightWithATab()
Selection.Find.ClearFormatting
Selection.Find.Font.Bold = True
With Selection.Find
.Text = "*"
.Replacement.Text = ""
.Forward = False
.Wrap = wdFindContinue
.Format = True
.MatchCase = False
.MatchWholeWord = False
.MatchWildcards = True
.MatchSoundsLike = False
.MatchAllWordForms = False
End With
Selection.Find.Execute
Selection.TypeText Text:=vbTab & vbTab
Selection.MoveUp Unit:=wdParagraph, Count:=1, Extend:=wdExtend
Selection.MoveLeft Unit:=wdCharacter, Count:=1
Selection.TypeText Text:=vbTab & vbTab
Selection.MoveLeft Unit:=wdCharacter, Count:=3
Selection.Find.ClearFormatting

End Sub

Thank you in advance for your replies.
 

Answer:Word Macro: How to keep macro running until end of page is reached

You can evaluate the current page number using the following property:

Just use a loop and have it execute while Selection.Information(wdActiveEndPageNumber) = 1

hi there,

i'm having some trouble with a word doc, then using the built in email to outlook functionality, sending it as a message, not an attachment. attached is the word doc so you can get an idea of what it is supposed to look like (the 7zip attachment "template5 - copy")

and then once it gets to outlook, the text does not respect the indentations and stretches to the window size. so if it's maximized, the text falls out of the limits of the book background (clipboard3 jpg)

and finally, once it does get emailed to outlook, how can i make it so that it's centered in the window? as you can see in that jpg, it hugs the left side. i want that book bg to appear centered aligned to the window.

any help would be appreciated...

Hello experts...My step-dad's 3 week old Dell 3000 running XP-Pro with Comcast broad band is having email problems using Outlook and Word. His MS Office 2000 was loaded and his Outlook connection was set up by a "friend". I'm a newbie and he's not even born yet as far as his computer knowledge.

He's starting a new business that requires a lot of email contact...and Word, from which they email, is now freezing after each "send". The problem is with Word's email function primarily, but he's experienced problems in outlook as well...actually FIRST. Worked fine for 2 days then the freezing began. An obvious indicator that there's a glitch, is that the tray icon blinks ORANGE and the top bar blinks LIGHT BLUE at the same time after trying to close Word. Ctrl+Alt+Del is the only way out. Happens every time. Could his friend have set this up wrong (I checked in properties to be sure both in & out mail addresses were the same)...does M$ have a "gotcha" in Office 2000 code if the guy used a CD-R copy to download...could it be an undetected "bug"?

Answer:Word document saved in Outlook email

The easiest way to figure out where your document went is to open an email message that includes an attachment, open the attachment, then go to File--> Save As. The Save As default path is always the same for emails, and the reason the search doesn't find it is because it is hidden in a temporary internet file folder. (Something like C:\Documents and Settings\user\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\OLK) Chances are as soon as you click Save As, you will see the document sitting in the temp folder. Then instead of saving the dummy doc you opened, simply right click on the doc you want, and hit copy. Then paste it somewhere (like your desktop for easy access), and there it will stay! Hope this helps!!

I cannot find any way of changing the email editor / word processor to MS Word in Outlook Express although I have friends who say there's is automatically using Word. I know I can use Word if I go over to MS Outlook but I don't want to do that because of the limitations that Outlook places on receiving attachments. I cannot be using Word at present because the familiar Word screen with the rulers etc is missing and so are many options such as 'Graphs & Tables'.

Answer:Changing the email editor to MS Word in Outlook Ex

I'm fairly sure you can't use Word as the email editor in Outlook Express - nothing in the help, google or the menus indicates you can.The limitations on Outlook receiving attachment can in most cases be overcome.Think you will have to decide which you would rather have. Easy of attachments or Word as email editor.

I have been having difficulty opening email attachments (Word or Excel). Our new computer came with XP and a trial version of Office 2003. When the trial ran out I uninstalled Office 2003 and installed my Office 97 version. Now when I try to open an attachment in Outlook I receive the following error: C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\.....doc is not a valid Win32 application.
Doing a right click-shift does not allow me to save the document as a word or excel file either.
Also when Outlook downloads the file from my internet service provider, the software icon changes from a MS icon to a wordpad icon.

Any suggestions?
Thanks

I have Windows XP sp2, Outlook 2002 SP3, Word 2000 SP3.

Now here is what happened. i had Outlook 2000 installed and i was able to use word as my email editor. Then i had to install outlook 2002 so that i could syncronize my "IPAQ" hand held.

now when i send email messages i word does not open. Now i have gone into tools/options/Mailformat to change the message format to use word as the email editor .......... AND here is the problem. I am not able to select these 2 boxes as they are greyed out. i am able to select the "compose in this message format" I am also not allowed to change the stationary. but i can change the fonts
i do have a signature.
I followed the help procedure

Turn Word on or off as your e-mail editor or viewer
Do one of the following:

Turn Word on or off as your default e-mail editor for all new messages

From the main Outlook window, click the Tools menu, click Options, and then click the Mail Format tab.
Select or clear the Use Microsoft Word to edit e-mail messages check box.
Turn Word on as your e-mail editor for one new message

But as noted above i was not able to do that.

secondly i tried the following

On the Actions menu, point to New Mail Message Using, and then click Microsoft Word (message format).
i tried this but i got the following error message
MICROSOFT OUTLOOK "Can't create the item"

please advise what could be wrong here.

Answer:copy email ids from excel to word or outlook

coolraz, seems to me you just need to create a csv file to create a list. Perhaps a list in your mail handler would be even easier for your purposes? You can edit a list to add, subtract members and send the same promo to each member of the list, Use BCC to send the mail and none of the others in the list appear.Creating the original list may involve C/P, dunno. Are they currently in your address book? If so, you can simply click on them to put them into a list.HTH.Ed in Texas.

Running Win 7 / MS Office Pro 2010
I am able to do an Email merge using Word for writing the letter and inserting fields from Access in order to personalise it, ie Title, Surname, and Membership Number. Then the email is sent using Outlook. Excellent.
However, the formatting in the body of the letter is not properly kept. When received, the text in the letter doesn't always 'wrap' to the next line, in spite of a 'return' command. Text boxes are out of line and such like. This is not acceptable as the presentation on receipt will look dreadful. Also, the way it presents in the recipients email will also depend on the size of the window it is opened in.
What I would like is to be able to keep the formatting and contain it within a certain size. I tried using a table but, on receiving the email, again it had lost formatting and was the width of the window.
Is there a way of containing the width and formatting of the letter when sending out a mass email using mail merge to personalise it, please.
I'd also like to be able to send a pdf attachmment but I understand that's not possible without an amount of coding, which I'm not knowledgeable enough to do.

Hi all,

It completely crashes and shows WinWord.exe as 99% of the CPU usage and simply will not work without ending the process and then unticking Word as the email Editor.

We decided to set a Group Policy to force Word to not be the email editor. Now emails aren't being spellchecked as it is using HTML/Outlook as the email editor.

What I did wrong: I couldn't get the Word 2003 to install a clean normal.dot, so after trying to trick it into making a new clean template, I used the repair option on the menu inside Word.

It went through its thing, asked for the original disk to find a file and said it was complete. (Only weird thing was I asked for all defaults, not to save customization, but it did anyway.) Now my normal.dot is fine.

It also completely wiped out my email--all records, plane and motel reservations, doctor communications, calendar, contacts--the works. WHY? Since when did Word control Outlook?

I haven't exported for many months so I have no recent backup, but I know somewhere on the hard drive the files must exist. At least I hope they do. I used to teach Outlook--but 2003 is a puzzle to me.

How do I get all my data back? I am using HTTP email--MSN DSL and mail is taken off the web when it is delivered to me, so no backups there.

Recently I send out a bulk email for our CEO (ya, that's right, the big guy!?!). I had a mailing list as my datasource, created the document in Word (as my email editor), attached two files and sent it off. However, once the merge was performed and everything was sent out the attachments either weren't on the resulting mass email, or only the icons for the attachments appeared. Simply, the attachments seemed to be stripped off the resulting email.

Does anyone have an explanation for this? I've looked on the MS Knowledge base to no avail. I'd really like to be able to explain it to the CEO so I look like less of a bumbling idiot!

Hi all, I don't have Office 2013 yet but I am intending to upgrade a computer to Windows 8.1 Office 2013. One of the primary uses of this computer will be email and currently the fastest way to do things is to send email directly from Word. I have looked it up on the net and found a website that says that you can do this with Office 2013:
http://www.howtogeek.com/172420/how-to-send-a-word-document-as-the-body-of-an-email-message/
The only problem is that right at the end it also says:
“Note that there’s no real record of your sent email except as a Word document. If you want to keep a copy of the message for yourself in your email program (Outlook, Thunderbird, etc.), select Bcc from the Options drop-down menu (the same menu where you selected to add the From field) and enter your email address in the Bcc field.”
Unfortunately as these will be important emails I really need to know if they have been sent, without having to just trust the user to remember to save or Bcc it. So my question is: Is there a sure way to have email come up in the sent folder in Outlook when sent from Word 2013? If not I may not get Office 2013.
Thanks in advance for any help.

I am using Outlook 2002 and selected (1) html as email format and (2) "Use Microsoft Word 2002 to edit email messages." Problem is that Outlook attaches one or more empty browser documents called header.htm to each outgoing email. When opening this file (header.htm), it contains nothing.

If I deselect "Use Microsoft Word to edit email messages" no header file is attached. What do I have to do to send emails using the html format while using Microsoft Word to edit messages without this attached header.htm?

My operating system is XP with Service Pack 2 installed.

Thanks in advance for your help
 

Answer:Using Word as email editor in Outlook attaches header.htm files

From what I can find it "appears" to be in normal.dot

" It sounds like normal.dot or email.dot has been modified where text/fields
are included in the header/footer. You will need to make sure nothing is in
either of these two fields or the recipient will always receive the
header.htm file."

IF you have not knowingly customized the normal.dot then you can delete it and Word will creat a clean one.

I have recently upgraded to Office 2010 (from 07) and I perform a lot a mail merges. I have come across a few issues with this feature within 2010 and wondered if anyone has a solution. I am obviously running Windows 7.

Issue 1 - When performing the mail merge to emails (HTML), Word 2010 doesn't seem to recognise my IMAP email account, which is set as default in Outlook 10 it uses one of my other pop email accounts.
Is there any way to set my IMAP account as the default for mail merging?

Issue 2 - Once I have completed the email merge I then need to create them as a PDF, which in 2007 worked fine but the Acrobat addin in Word 10 doesn't do anything. (I do have Acrobat 8 prof installed as well) I have done a little research and can see that this is a problem but I need a solution to fix.
Otherwise I'll be reduced to uninstalling and re-install 2007!

Hello all,

I have been presented with a project that involves Forms that I am not able
to resolve.

Basically I have been asked to create a document template where other team
members can fill out a form that asks a series of questions, then to have
only the completed form results export to a new file.

I am aware that Word can export the form results to a text file, but when I
do this all of the questions that were on the original form are exported to
the new file.

What we are looking to achieve in the end:
If the end user is faced with 20 questions, but only 12 of the questions
pertain to the end users project, only the 12 completed form fields will
export to a new file.

I know that this should be possible with using a macro button to export the data, but that is where I need the help.

I tried searching for this exact situation, but I did not find any matches, hence the new thread.

Thank you in advance,

Hi,
Don't mind the curious ones, but I'm one of them. So anyway, almost one year ago now, the Word macro virus W97M/Marker.C was running rampant around Gordon College, with many teachers and students alike being infected. I was even infected with it thanks to one of my professors posting an assignment description document that had it. I was running AVG 9.0 at the time, and it was flagged many a time over. I think there were like six or so instances. My memory may be flaky, as my laptop has undergone many reformats since then, but what I do remember is trying to ignore AVG's warning, due to the fact that AVG has given me many false positives when I used it. The message Word gave me was that the document couldn't be opened because it wasn't available. But the strange part of that is that AVG had not removed anything from the file. I can think of two reasons why the file wouldn't run with the virus in it. Tell me which, if either, is correct. One is that Microsoft has since changed the macro format from 2003 and earlier versions of Word simply due to the many viruses that once existed for it, or two, that message was a very convoluted way of telling me that Windows 7 no longer supports Virtual device Drivers (*.vxd) as I was able to open the file after it had been cleaned up by Eset NOD32.

Answer:random curiosity about MS Word macro viruses and why (thank the Lord), they don't work in Word 2007/2010

I don't know the particulars of the macro virus you mention, but with Microsoft Office 2003, a significant change was implemented that effectively stopped the propagation of macro viruses.

Prior to Office 2003, macros were enabled by default, and opening a document with macros and auto-execute meant the macros were automatically executed (and thus the virus could infect and propagate).

With Office 2003, macro security was introduced. With a Microsoft Office 2003 default install, macros need to be signed with a certificate issued by a trusted root CA. Macros that are not signed will not be executed. Users have to explicitly lower the macro security level for unsigned macros to execute. Almost all macro viruses were unsigned.

I have a Word database file that is 16 columns wide and several hundred rows long.

With the database open:

1. My macro opens a new document (Which I’ll call the “Working Doc”)
2. Activates the database file
3. Captures the information from all the cells in row 1
4. Activates the Working Doc
5. Inserts a Word file at the end of the document based on the information in one of the cells. This file is composed of a couple of paragraphs and a table
6. Inserts the information gathered from the database file into the table
7. Activates the database file
8. Captures the information from all the cells in row 2
9. Activates the Working Doc
10. Inserts a different Word file at the end of the document based on the information in one of the cells. This file is also composed of a couple of paragraphs and a table. All of the inserted files are a couple of paragraphs and a table

You can barely read it.If I remove Word as the editor, then the text is in black--nice and clear.
I have spent hours playing with the settings in Word changing between automatic and black.I have checked and rechecked the Outlook settings.I can't shake this light lime green text with Word as the editor and I want Word as the editor--very frustrating..And something else important and related....
When you use Outlook to fax,(Symantec Fax Starter), the text arrives on all fax machines, but it is very "faint", however the subject and cover sheet are dark normal text, which makes me think it is being transmitted as light lime green, but showing up faint black as fax machines have only black shades.
Is there a setting somewhere in Windows that is impacting on Word? I've buzzed around the control panel and no success. I don't know why I can't pinpoint this--probably too easy and right there staring at me..........help!

Hello,

I originally posted this question on November 3, 2010 in the Email section and in spite of many views, there were no replies. That is when I thought I might be going about asking the question the wrong way.

Windows XP - SP3 Microsoft Word and Microsoft Outlook 2003

I use Word as my email editor for Outlook. I had had a problem or two awhile back and I used the Detect and Repair Function that comes with Outlook 2003. Problems cleared up HOWEVER I got a new and IMHO worse problem: my emails that are advertisements like Newegg, TigerDirect, Overstock, etc. are fine but anything else that is actually text that is sent to me comes in very, very small and I can not find a way to change it. I have looked everywhere in Outlook; Microsoft online, and Google. Sample attached.

I can't find it and it is driving me crazy. If anyone could help, I'd sincerely appreciate it!

Thank you for your time.

Question: Word: macro bug

I have assigned keyboard sequence to a macro in MS Word 2002 that applies a certain style to whatever I happen to have highlighted at the time I hit the hot-key, but every time I start up Word from fresh, and several times while I am working on the same document, it stops working, and I get a Microsoft Visual Basic Run-time error '5941', stating [The requested member of the collection does not exist]. Since I don't know how to debug anything, I have to click END, delete the old macro, and record a new one. Any ideas? TIA, Tom.
 

Answer:Word: macro bug

Even though you say that you don't know how to debug, I would recommend that you try choosing "Debug" rather than "End" when the error message comes up. If you choose Debug, the macro contents (code) will be displayed to you in an editor window, and the specific LINE that provoked the error will be HIGHLIGHTED.

Now, you may surprise yourself. When you see the highlighted line, you may recognize some of the terminology in the line and be able to deduce what is going wrong. Even then, you may not know how to fix it, but I still think you should feel proud of yourself if you think you have pinpointed the issue.

Also, the following might be interesting to try: Don't delete the "bad" macro(s). Feel free to record new ones, but leave the old ones alone, and then compare the contents of the old macro(s) to the contents of the new one(s).

There are several ways to view the code in a macro. A good way for you to try might be this:

Open the "macro dialog box/window" in one of two ways:
1. press Alt + F8
2. Go to "Tools," "Macro," then "Macros..."

Highlight the name of the macro you wish to view, and then click the button that says "Edit"

In order for me to help you any further with this specific scenario (the "apply a style to the highlighted text" scenario), I would need for you to post the actual macro code. So you can follow some of the steps described above to view your code.

I'm looking to create a macro in MS Word containing an if/then/else statements.

In a nutshell, here's what I am trying to do: I have created a form in MS Word for writing reports. 98% this form is protected so that all you have to do is tab between the checkboxes and text boxes. As needed, other sections can be imported into the document through a macro that has already been written.

However, at one point, the document may need to be unlocked because of the way the information for one particular section is entered. Yet, if you don't need this section, then the document remains locked. Confused yet?

Here's the problem, I need an if/then/else statements that will check to see if the document is protected or unprotected. If it is protected, then it does nothing an continues on with the rest of the macro. If the document is unprotected, the it protects the document and moves on with the rest of the macro.

Below is kind of what I'm working on, but I can't get it to work. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

If ActiveDocument = Unprotect Then ActiveDocument.Protect Password:="", NoReset:=True, Type:=wdAllowOnlyFormFields

End If

Thanks for any suggestions or help!!!!!!!!!!
 

Answer:If/Then/Else Macro in MS Word

azgambit,

the following Select Case statement demonstrates how how to determine what type of protection has been applied to the active document: -

With ActiveDocument
'MsgBox .Protect
Select Case .ProtectionType
Case wdNoProtection
MsgBox "No protection"
Case wdAllowOnlyRevisions
MsgBox "Allow Only Revisions (Tracked Changes)"
Case wdAllowOnlyComments
MsgBox "Allow Only Comments"
Case wdAllowOnlyFormFields
MsgBox "Allow Only Form Fields"
End Select
End With

To implement the usage that you require i.e. if the document is protected do nothing else protect and move on to next statement, use something similar to the following code snippet: -

If ActiveDocument.ProtectionType = wdNoProtection Then
'Document not protected therefore do something
MsgBox "Document is not protected therefore protect and move on"
ActiveDocument.Protect wdAllowOnlyFormFields, , "Password"
Else
'Document is protected therefore do nothing
'The else part of this
End If



The else part of the if-else-end if statement can be left out if you are doing nothing in the event of a protected document.

Hope the above helps,

Tom.

Hi,

I have a word document that has a table presented in a two column layout (See output.docx). The document is being generated using OpenXML SDK (the data comes from the database).

See odd.jpg and even.jpg (attached images) for screenshots of desired output

Things that I would like to accomplish:
----------------------------------------

PROBLEM 1: I have added a sequence to all items {SEQ lo \# "00" }. (Select "Toggle Field Codes" to see it ) But I want the numbering to start from 1 on each page. To do this I tried :-
Code:

Sub aA()

For i = 1 To Selection.Information(wdNumberOfPagesInDocument)

Selection.GoTo What:=wdGoToPage, Which:=wdGoToNext, Name:=CStr(i)

ActiveWindow.ActivePane.View.SeekView = wdSeekMainDocument

ActiveDocument.Bookmarks("\page").Range.Select


If Selection.Fields.Count > 0 Then
Selection.Fields(1).Code.Text = Selection.Fields(1).Code.Text & " \r1"
End If

Next
ActiveDocument.Fields.Update

End Sub

But that doesn't seem to work ( I am using Office 2007 BTW).

PROBLEM 2: See odd.jpg and even.jpg

I want to display the first entry on the current page in the header (for even pages) and I want to display the last entry on the current page in the header (for odd pages).

To do this, I was thinking...

Answer:Help with Word Macro

I figured that my problem is due to the fact that there are no page breaks in the document, so

ActiveDocument.Bookmarks("\page").Range.Select

Any way to overcome this? i.e, by creating a macro to add page break after every page??? Any ideas?

Hi,I'm trying to write a macro in a Word document (Testdoc.doc) that will print the file Testdoc.doc to a pdf file. This is the function (in Visual Basic) in the macro that does that:Public Sub bd2pdf_print(Printer As String, FilePath As String, OutputFile As String)     ActivePrinter = Printer  Application.PrintOut FileName:=FilePath, Range:=wdPrintAllDocument, Item:= _        wdPrintDocumentContent, Copies:=1, Pages:="1", PageType:=wdPrintAllPages, _        Collate:=True, Background:=False, PrintToFile:=True, OutputFileName:=OutputFile, _        Append:=FalseEnd SubPublic Sub bd2pdf_close() ActiveDocument.Close wdDoNotSaveChangesEnd SubThe parameters "Printer, FilePath, OutputFile" are submitted by a Visual Basic program that I have.So in that program, I open the word document and then use the command: docapp.Run "bd2pdf_close" (where docapp is Word application) to run the macro.

For example: I have Word doc. Within that doc there may be a a range of data that I want the macro to select that takes up 2.5 pages and another, which is directly below the first, that may only be 1 page. I want the macro to select the 2.5 pages, paste that data into a new doc, save, go back to the original doc, select the next range which is 1 page worth of data, open a new doc, save, etc... The "ranges" within the file will be separated by peoples names.

Question: Word Macro

This is probably going to sound crazy to you Office gurus but I thought I would ask. Is it possible to have a Word Macro linked to the Right Click Context Menu in Windows Explorer. Currently I have a macro in Word that does what I need it to do but I am lazy and was just looking for another shortcut to make my life easier.

Basically I pull alot of fixed length text files off of our mainframe. I need to put them into a Word document before I send them to our sales people. So I pull them off of them mainframe and open them up in Word. I run a Macro that Changes the Page Setup to Landscape and the Font size to 8 and then saves it as a Word Document. This way it is formatted nicely in the Word Document.

I am basically wondering if there is anyway to right click on the text file and select a Context Menu that has my macro, which will launch Word and run the necessary steps in my macro and exit out of Word.

Question: Need a Word Macro

Hey guys, I need a Word Macro that enters a date (automatically enters the current date but DOES NOT update it automatically), then tabs, then enters some text, than tabs again and pauses for the user to input something, then puts whatever is input in that spot (i.e, where it tabbed to and then tabs and enters some text and then spaces twice. Thus, when the Macros is run, it will do this

5/22/02 24574 {pause}

The {pauses} is where it stops to get a number from a user, then after the the user hits enter or "OK" the info in entered where the pause is and then more text is entered, then it stops with the cursor two spaces after the last text entered. Thus, the finished line looks like this (assuming the user entered ".30"):

5/22/02 24574 .10 (Smith)

Thus, the only thing that changes is the date and the ".10".

I'm using Office 2000 by the way.

I received a suspicious email about a cancelled bpay transaction. It was tied to an email address of mine that has NEVER been used in a bpay transaction, so of course I didn't open it. It had a zip file attachment containing a word document (specified in the body of the email), so I fired up a linux VM, transferred the zip file to /home, and opened it with ark.
 
As expected, there was a word document titled  BillPay cancelled payment_95073.doc, so I fired up LibreOffice Writer to take a look. Interestingly, the zip file said "bpay" while the document said "billpay" - which is a bill-paying service of Australia Post.
 
Anyway, LO Writer warned me about the (expected) macros, and disabled execution. I went to the macro editor to take a peek at the code - which was mostly beyond my skills (I haven't done any Word coding for years), but I saw some things which set the alarm bells ringing, such as the autoopen module, constructing strings of windows pathnames from parts (e.g. "\app"+"data\lo"+"cal\t"+"emp"), obviously intended to obfuscate and not trigger malware scanners.

Hi,

Whenever I try to open a word document, I get the warning:
"The function you are attempting to run contains macros or content that requires macro language support. When this software was installed, you (or your administrator) chose not to install support for macros or controls."

I am at my wits end on this, as I have tried following the advice in the warnings (going to the trust centre), but these warnings keep popping up and I don't want to mess up my Office installation (that was done using the standard setting). After a few clicks it disappears, but also asks me about Endnote CWYW X4 ... I'm wondering if this might be the problem but can't find anything in the web to suggest it is.

Hello everyone,

I need a macro that will paste around highlighted text.

For example

I need to paste '{{c1::' and '}}' around the sentence: Jimmy has an apple.

I would like to highlight 'Jimmy has an apple' with my cursor and then paste around the sentence. Make sense?

so in the end it should look like {{c1::Jimmy has an apple.}}

Also what I paste around the text will differ, so I will need to assign different macros to different key-shortcuts.

Is this even possible? It would save LOADS of time.
