Word 2000: Creating a Master Document of document templates

Question: Word 2000: Creating a Master Document of document templates

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 which he wants me to manage this project. So here's my idea:

I want to create a Master Document template of document templates, so that my boss can create a new RFQ-to-Quote Master Document as needed while at the same time allowing each department the autonomy of generating its own documentation.

I don't think that's possible.

Has anyone else faced a similar issue, and if so, how did you address the problem?

Thanks.

chris.

I am running XP and Word 2000 and Nortons. Word will crash if you leave the document open for a while (there is no specific time frame) and then select close (icon). The error - Microsoft Word for Windows has encountered a problem and needs to close. The details are: AppName: winword.exe
appver 9.0.0.3822
Modname: kernel32.dll
modvers: 5.1.26002180
offset 0001eb33

This has pretty much happened since I got this laptop. I have reformatted and reinstalled everything (due to another problem) and still have the same problem with word. I have used the same CD on other computers to install word and they do not have the same problem.

I use a variety of templates and plain documents in my work and can not pin point it to one template.

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. The save completes and then I select Close and this is when it happens - you get the dreaded pause and then you hear the whirl of the computer and then you get the Microsoft Word for Windows has encountered a problem and needs to close. Firstly I could put up with it but is now just a nusiance.

They are listed at the right hand side of the "New Documents" window under "Recently Used Templates" Can anyone tell me how I can remove unused items from this list, please?

I'm trying to set up a master document in Word 2000, but can't.Each time I try to find out about Outline View, on Help, I get a message which tells me that either my security levels are set too high, or there's an error. I've set the security levels to the minimum, and I'm still getting the message so I assume I must have a problem that the error message is pointing me to, which reads:"Troubleshoot the installation of the ActiveX control Ouactrl.ocx located in the folder you installed Microsoft Office to."Can anyone help me with how to do that?Thank you.

Answer:Master document feature in Word

it could be your normal template is messed up. Find this and rename it to normal.old and then open word and it will put in a new normal. If this does not do the trick you can delete the new one and rename the old one.

I work at a small accounting firm and earlier this year we purchased some new laptops which run 64 bit Windows 7. Since then, we have started to upgrade Office on our computers. On one of the Windows 7 computers, I installed Office 2010 last week. We also use CCH's program ProSystem fx Engagement. Now, when opening Word inside of Engagement (not sure if this happens outside of Engagement because the user can't recall it happening) an error occasionally comes up which says "error creating obj document." The user hits okay, which is the only option, and then receives a second error that says "obj document is nothing." She then again selects okay and moves on. It doesn't seem to cause any issues with functionality so I'm not rushing to fix it but we want to get rid of the errors and hopefully have an idea of how to correct it in the future.

Please keep in mind I'm a CPA helping with computer issues. Since we are relatively small, we don't actually have our own IT department or person. We have to go outside. I do pretty well keeping my home computer up and running if I can research the issue and find a solution. I've looked for a while and can't find a solution in a dumbed down language that seems to fit the issue.

Can anyone try and explain this?

I can have a document open and already typed up; if I go back through it to edit it, instead of the characters being 'pushed along ' either by the space bar or by the letters inserted pushing them along to accomodate the inserted ones, the charaters instead get wiped off ; as I move the characters with the space bar, they get wiped off instead of moved along

I hope that makes sense more than 'clear as mud'

but can anyone hazzard a guess as to why this happens?

Answer:Oddity While Creating A Document In Microsoft Word

Step 4:Add text by moving the cursor to where you want the new text and begin typing, pushing the existing text to the side. If you want to erase the old words as you type the new, press the "Insert" key on your keyboard. You can toggle between the two choices; when you are in overwrite mode the "OVR" in the status bar at the bottom of the screen will be highlighted. Another option is to highlight the text you want to delete and begin typing. The text will be erased automatically.Sticky "Insert" key?http://www.ehow.com/

Hello,

Basically at work we have these documents we need to fill out for each project which could contain up to 25 standard tasks. Each task is shown on a list and also has a table dedicated to it later in the document. The master document contains all 25 tasks and tables but not all are relevant to every job, so we have to go through and delete the ones we don't need. It'd be much more efficient if we could have a way of selecting the necessary tasks (e.g. from an index table on the front page) and having the document populated with only these tasks. I could easily do something similar in Excel using the VLOOKUP command, and if I can't find a better way then that's what I'll have to do, but this would still leave a bunch of empty tables to delete and isn't great in terms of formatting etc. so I'd rather have it all in Word if possible. Also, this would mean for some jobs the list of tasks would read e.g. 1,2,3,9,10,17 etc. when I'd much prefer it to be 1,2,3,4,5 etc.
Any advice and help regarding how to approach this problem would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks

I am preparing a chemistry textbook and have hit several interesting, undocumented limits in Word. I was able to bypass them by splitting the document into two documents and linking the second as a sub-document in the first. This introduced another interesting problem...

Each document contains several text boxes.

Observations
• Everything is visible is print preview.
• When I print each individual document, everything prints.
• [THE PROBLEM] When I print the complete document, some(?) text boxes in the first document do not print; all text boxes in the second document print. (Again, everything is visible in print preview, but not in the printed document).

Your thoughts...

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.

This is just one of those odd quirks I have run into. When I open a new document in Word, then open an older file, the new document closes and only the old one is displayed.Using Microsoft Office 2010, specifically Word.Windows 7 64-bitA bit of explanation, I often do research/writing for school or for fun. This issue has always happened, just one of those small annoyances.Here is the exact thing that is happening:1. I open a new (blank) word document, by clicking on the Word icon or by selecting "Open New Document" in the Word program.2. I open an older (saved) Word document, by clicking on the saved file, not by using the "Open" function in Word.3. The New (empty) document disappears, only the older document is open.

Yes, you are right. That is normal for MS Word.Do this:Open a new document. Type something. Even a single space. Save it with a name you want. Now open an older document. Both documents can be on the screen or cascaded.If memory is not an issue, you can haven two instances of Word.

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.

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?

Regards

Answer:[SOLVED] Word document freezes computer and document is corrupted

Hi all.

Just to advise that I am going to mark this topic as Solved......to a fashion so to speak.
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.

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

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!

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.

I can not give you any precise answer but it is maybe because of office specific settings or you press accidentally some key on the keyboard and on this way interrupt symbols entering.

First, welcome to the forum!!!

The best way for one of the Excel gurus to work on your problem would be to post your file, after you have removed any confidential data (make a copy and do the editing in it). If it is too large, zip it first (and zip is preferred to rar).
If you are unable to post the file (there seems to be a problem at times with people who don't have very many posts being able to attach files) just send me an email via my profile (include the URL link to this thread). I will respond to you and then you can send it to me, after which I will post it for you.

Operating system Windows XP home---Microsoft Word 2000

After just finishing up a 21 post session in Malware removal successfully, I have discovered a document problem in Word 2000! I am not a heavy word user, so 2000 has always worked fine for the personal tasks I use it for.

I typed in two short lines of script IDing a software program I recently downloaded, to tape to my tower to remember when to run the program. Now whenever I go to word, the two lines of script show up on the screen? I can highlight the lines and delete them to compose a new document, but the next time I go into word they reappear again.

In trying to permanently remove the lines, I have rummaged around in word and found in "file" - ( CCleaner optimization.doc) and when I click on that I get the following Microsoft Window that states:

The document or path is not valid. Try these suggestions.
*Check the file permissions for the document or drive
*Use the file open dialog boxto locate the document
C:\...\CCleaner optimazation.doc)

How do I find this document so I can delete the file and am concerned that everything I now type in word will create a new document file! There are three other document files above this one which I never wanted to keep.!

Can I just search in my C drive and find these files and delete them?

Also, just in case I can convince to leave in excel -- is there a way to print the excel file as one document without printing each tab separately? If so, how do I ensure the formatting looks good to print as a regular 8.5 x 11 document?Thanks for any help.

I have a very simple Word 2007 macro-enabled template that has a single ActiveX checkbox control and a simple one-line Document_New macro. When this .dotm file is stored in a network folder that has been setup in Word 2007 to be a trusted location, Word always aborts when creating a new file based on this template.

If the ActiveX control is removed, or the macro code is removed, or the file is placed in a non-trusted location (and you select the option to enable macros when you get the security banner warning), it functions just fine. It's just the combination of ActiveX, macro code in a trusted location that causes the crash. I can e-mail the file for those that want to check it out.

Anyone got any ideas how to correct this strange one?

BTW, I have Office 2007 SP2.

Thanks!
 

Answer:Word 2007 aborts creating new document with macro-enabled template with ActiveX

This is a known issue with Word 2007 after installing another one of their hot-fixes (KB2251419). They applied a hot-fix (KB2449499) for it in October 2010

Hello,

I am trying to edit a large document about (69 pages) in Microsoft Word 2000 and also using endnote 5.0. The document constantly freezes and I have to Allt Ctrl Del to shut the document down. It only happens with this particular document.

I have turned off the option where Endnote loads up everytime I go into word.

There are no graphics in the document and I am using windows 98 O/S.

Can anyone please offer some advice as to why this would be happening.

Thank you.

Andrea.
 

Answer:Word 2000 Document Constantly freezes

Sounds like it's corrupt or just about.

Do you have Word XP available to you anywhere? It's "recovery" is better than prior versions, and it just might clear up the problem.

Sorry...never heard of Endnote.

The only other thing I can suggest is to clean up your hard drive, unless this occurs on other people's PCs too.

Answer:Word 2000 - can't get back to original document

Are you saying that Word opens with this document as default? If so, do a search of your hard drive for all instances of a file called "Normal.dot" (without the quotes). When/if any are found, delete them. When you re-open Word it will create a new Normal.dot file and use that as the default.

Hi can anyone help me?I have 'hyperlinked' to a Word document in Powerpoint 2000 and, although the document has opened, it is minimised in the taskbar and I can only view it by stopping the presentation which is not ideal.What I want is for the document to be displayed in full screen format, so that when I close it, I can revert to the Powerpoint slide that I opened the Word document with. (I have set the properties of the Word shortcut icon to 'maximised' but this hasn't helped).This used to work in XP and now I am running Vista on a laptop, (I don't know whether this is the problem). ps I haven't tried the presentation on a pc or laptop running XP yet.

I'm assuming this is something simple, it's on a friend's pc, and someone else has spent hours trying to fix it to no avail. What they tell me is happening is that when a document is saved (like a newsletter) all the formatting disappears and it's in the form of one big paragraph. It happens when saving new or when saving exsisting documents that are being worked on. It's happening on a nice old lady's pc, and I'd really like to help her get it fixed, but I'm a WordPerfect person. Any ideas what may be going on and how to correct it, other than reinstalling Word? Or should we just reinstall? Thanks!

BUT I want to have a "Related Documentation" field, which stores one or more documents relating to the call record(i.e. manuals or Microsft KB documents), so that when I look up the call I will have a copy of any documents that I used.

Dear Friends,

First of all I apologise as I know that this topic has been posted on the Forum previously but I have been unable to locate the Threads. The O.S. on our computer is XP Home Edition and we use Word 2000.

My wife is the Secretary of a local organisation and typed out three A4 sized pages of Minutes of a Meeting when she decided to end the session and resume the next day. Unfortunately in a "Senior Moment" she clicked the X in the top right hand corner and clicked no to saving the changes in the subsequent dialogue box. As a result she had to re-type the three pages.

In case this happens again I wanted to be prepared. I believe the "file" will still be on the Hard Drive until overwritten but that there is no way on XP that you can rescue it. I seem to recall however on a previous post that there may be some third party software that might be of help and I wondered whether any kind person has any information on this matter.

Thank you for reading this.

I recently responded to an email from a known contact, changing the title and deleting the message to start a new topic. I had forgotten that this email carried an Alphadex-Attachment-Warning saying:- The original e-mail attachment "Toastmaster Spreadsheet.xls.lnk.xls" is on the list of unacceptable attachments for this site and has been replaced by this warning message. I contacted Alphadex immediately by email but received no response - and in the meantime forgot I had received this warning!

I have been receiving this periodically updated spreadsheet for several years with an .xls suffix. On 20.11.2012, the spreadsheet first appeared with the suffix .xls.lnk.xls, which I have to admit I didn't notice. I was able to open it without problem twelve times between that date and the warning message which arrived on 16.5.2013.

Since using this email to start a new topic with my contact, the formatting of my filed word processing documents and custom templates have been corrupted; additionally, inserting the date from the software is displayed:{DATE\@"dd MMMMyyyy"} - although when I copied that to this message it appeared formatted in date form.

This formatting corruption is displayed on all filed documents, newly created templates and on documents filed on a USB. I am protected by AVG Premium Security 2012 and have run a computer scan which shows no virus infection.

Answer:Corrupted docs and custom templates since xls.lnk.xls document

I have now discovered that the corruption was not caused by the Excel document attachment, but by a Word document. I attempted to open this attachment following my initial post on this website and was warned that opening the document 'caused a serious error' last time it was opened, so it is patently this that has corrupted my word processing documents.

Apart from corruption of the graphics (a simple coloured rectangle with rounded corners encircling the text area) and the corrupted date format, our email address in the header of all documents and templates is shown as a hyperlink, i.e. {HYPERLINK mailto:.....} and contains an old email address.

I am in serious trouble here as all my documents and templates are corrupted in this way and it will be a massive amount of work to amend them all if I am unable to find a software solution via the good offices of one of you Tech Support Guys. I really hope someone sees this and can help.

Answer:Word Document within another document

The only simple way is to go to Insert, Object, Create from file and choose to insert your file as a link (these are 2003 instructions - would be similar in 2007, though.) However, you will then get a questions about the file having links and do you want to update...every time you open the file.
You could also just insert some text and hyperlink it to the other file.
Finally, someone could probably write some VBA that would insert the file and update it every time you opened it.

I would like to set up a template that can be used eventually to rewrite all of our SOPs.
I am trying to set up the template so that as each document is created for a different SOP it is given a document number. I have one that I am getting ideas from and this one has a heading box (It is in the document header, and appears on each page of the document).

The header details the name of the organization, Then it has a title, "Standard Operating Procedures".
It has a section title, in this case "Communication" then a document title "SOP- 170: Office procedures."
I know that that number changes for the different SOPs in this organization.
The header box also has a field on the right hand side that says "Issue 1". Under that is a heading titled "Date" and a there is a date ( I guess the date the document was printed?) and the page number ie: "3 of 7".

I am having trouble with creating the "rolling Document number". That was the first reason that I decided I was getting nowhere and that maybe I should ask for some help from someone who knows more about this than I do.

While I'm asking for help, I might as well mention that I'm also not too sure what the "Issue number" would be.

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!!!

In m/s Word 2007 is there any way of pinpointing sections of a large document where the style does NOT match the 'normal/default' style for the document?I have a large document of chapters containing images and text and have just noticed that some paragraphs are in another style - with different line-spacing, in particular. I can't select the whole document and check the spacing because I want all the images to be on the even pages and there are a lot of section and page-breaks. Also, the chapter headings have their own style.Many thanks for any help.

I have a .doc that im trying to use as an template in another program. I cannot simply copy/paste the document into this other app, I have to recreate it using textboxes, lines, rectangles, etc and its becoming a pain to get it looking exactly like the original document.
This would be so much easier if I can simply create image of the original document and embed it into my other app. However I'm now having trouble creating a high quality image of this word document. Doing a print screen and saving as TIFF or PNG in MS paint fails to preserve the original text quality.
Is it possible to do this some other way? thanks

Either you're doing it wrong (because it does preserve quality) or you're scaling the image, in which case you'd be better off with some kind of vector-based graphic, a la SVG.

Have an example of what you mean by 'fails to preserve the original text quality?'

The problem occurred without warning after many previous instances of trouble-free copying of Notepad text into MS Word 2010. Here?s an example of what happens:-1. I type a sentence into Notepad.2. I then attempt to copy and paste it into an open MS Word file.3. The cursor in the resulting MS Word file stops blinking on completion of the ?paste? process. A few seconds later, MS Word indicates ?not responding?.4. I press CTRL + ALT + DEL to open the Task Manager.5. On doing this and clicking on the MS Word document in the Task Manager and selecting ?End Task?, a message box stating ? WINWORDC.EXE is not responding?, with 3 option buttons, pops up. One of the 3 option buttons is ?Close program?.6. When I click on ?Close program?, another message box pops up saying ?WINWORDC is trying to recover your information?. Then, a few seconds later, the MS Word document closes (but without saving the text copied from the Notepad file).

Is it possible to save a template as a document and name it automatically by using a name displayed in the first form field?

I do alot of reports for different companies and fill them out on a form template that created with several fields. The first field holds the company name. Currently the only way I can save the new document under each company's name is to Saveas>then type the company name for a file name> then close the document and then open the template again.

I am wondering if Word and accomplish this task without VB programing?
 

Answer:Word 2000 templates

Why can't you just save it? Usually when you just save word will change the extension to doc and you add the name of the company and you just keep on working and don't have to close.

It will save it as a document or what ever format you want and you shouldn't have to close out word.
It will still look like the template but the extensions will change as soon as you save it.

Hello,
I need some help creating a macro with some complex (I think) functions. This one might be tough!

I have a document that has fill in fields. The document is protected in order to enable the fill in fields.
Users will enter information in the fields depending on the answers to the questions in the document. The document is attached to show what it looks like.

What I need is a button (called "copy") at the end of the document that the user can just click and the macro will only copy text formatted as header and any fill-in fields that were completed.

Then the user can use the copied data to paste it somewhere else either by using their mouse (right click + paste) or using the Ctrl + v.

I'm not even sure if that's possible but we'll see if someone can help. It would be extremely wonderful if someone could figure this one out.

THANK YOU!

G'day,
When I download save or display a word document which is locked some of the fonts change and this makes the documant look bad and as a result it is not paged correctly.
I am using Windows 7 and MS Office Home & Business 2010.
If I use a different computer which is XP and 2003 the document displays correctly, if I copy this to the Windows 7 PC the document font is changed.
The lock document is a form which has been locked for easy completion.

Any assistance would be appreciated.

I am trying to add several existing documents to a Master document in Word 2000. The existing documents are all formatted with single spacing. I want them to have double spacing in the Master document. Even if I reformat one of the existing documents to have double spacing before I add it to the Master document, once I add it to the Master document, it now has single spacing. In the Master document I went to File/Open and then navigated to and opened the Normal Document Template. In the Normal Template I went to Format/Paragraph, and set Line Spacing to Double. It wouldn't let me save this document template because it said it was Read Only. Why is this so difficult?

Can anyone tell me how I can add multiple existing documents to a Master document in Word 2000, and then apply double spacing to all the subdocuments?

Thank you,

-Chris
 

Answer:Formatting Templates in Word 2000

When pasting to the master, choose Edit-Paste Special-Unformatted text.

See...you've got a Normal style in Document 2. But the Normal style in document 1 is single spaced. So either paste unformatted at an insertion point that is double-spaced, or copy the styles from master to document 2, and THEN copy over...

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")

addsendbutton();

}

The problem is that the button is still showing at word level. Visual studio is not launching the condition on all the windows. So he?s adding it in word as well, although word document is a wdDocumentLetter.



I have 2 options in mind:



1- The code must not be called at new inspector level. Because this trigger is not launched in the case of the word document

2- The inspector from which we get the word editor is not the right one for word document (Word.Document ... Read more

Hi everybody!
I have had it happening frequently, that I open a Word 2000 template (i.e. opening the template itself, not creating a document from it) and edit it, and Word 2000 crashes (I get "This program has performed an illegal operation and will be closed" or similar) when I save it. When I restart Word 2000 after that, the template I worked on is read-only.

I have found a sort of work around for it:
If I save it under a new name, that copy is not read-only. If I then reboot, it is possible to delete the template that was read-only before the re-boot, and rename the copy to the name I want it to have.

I would better If I could edit templates without Word 2000 crashing though. Does anybody know anything? What could I be doing wrong?

I have created a letterhead template with company logo LHS & address RHS in the header, page number & Investors in people logo in the footer.This template is okay for a one page letter but when I go to the 2nd page I need it to be a continuation sheet. I currently have to make a section break at end of 1st page, cut the headers & footers, then go to page setup and change to "different 1st page" then go back to the 1st page and paste the headers and footers in the 1st page and delete the address out of the header in the 2nd page.Is there a quicker way of doing this?
