Inserting link in Office 2007 Word document?

Question: Inserting link in Office 2007 Word document?

In a Word document in Office for XP if I type in a URL or email address it immediately turns into a link (Coloured blue). This does not happen with Word in Office 2007. Is this by design and how do I get a URL or email address to appear as a link please?

Hello, Welcome to SF,

Try these steps and see whether it works

In Word 2007, go to Office button > Word Options > Proofing > AutoCorrect
Options > AutoFormat As You Type tab, and check the box for "Internet and
network paths with hyperlinks".

Hope this helps,
Captain

AAm I the only one to have ever come across this problem? I actually find that it is repeatable and here is how I managed to do it.

Step 1 - Under the insert tab click on the "Picture" to insert a picture. In case it is important the picture I am inserting is a .png file.

Step 2 - Press Enter to insert a space below the picture that has just been inserted.

Step 3 - Under the references tab click on insert caption.

Now this is where things get interesting because Word has to think hard about this one. By the time the Caption dialog box shows up so that I can tell it what kind of caption etcetera, the document I was working in appears to have vanished except for a few thin verticle lines off to the side.

Step 4 - Hit cancel.

Everything is gone, however hitting ctrl-z does restore the document so that at least now it is viewable. The trouble is that clicking anywhere in the document now results in the cursor going back to the beginning of the document. On top the document now being basically useless, with rare exception, all of the options under all of the tab menus (Home, Insert, Page Layout, etc.) are no longer highlighted! I cannot use any of them.

Worse, I cannot figure out how to restore my document to the point before I inserted the picture!

Any ideas about what is going on and how I can fix/avoid this problem?

Thanks,
Jeremy

I have Office 2007 and I downloaded a 2010 calender template. It's just about what I need and fills up the page nicely, however I've noticed that there is room to stretch the calender on the page. Trouble is I can't figure out how to do that! The little grabber thingy on the top left of each month allows you to pull it but not re-size it.

Hi,

I need help with word 2007. When I open my document (.doc format), word automatically reformats it during loading. After this, I see a lots of garbage in the contents list. This garbage are in fact lines from my document. In the document they look just like other text, but they appear in the list. When I update the style of these lines (for example it uses normal and I just click on normal style), they disappears from the list. I save the document but next time word reformats it again and I have the exactly the same garbage in the contents list. I realized I can stop the formmating during document open by ESC, which at least does not corrupt the document again, but how do I repair the document permanently?

What is wrong with my document? How do I repair my document?

I have found that when I run word 2007 or any other office 2007 program and go to the open a file icon, you then get the open file window that has all of my word documents. Since I saved them with thumbnails, there is a thumbnail of each document saved. Now here comes the problem; over on the right there is the preview pane and when you click on a file for preview, I get the error message: "This file can't be previewed because of an error in the Microsoft Office Word previewer". Of course I have googled this problem, but I haven't found much info other that to run the program with the /a on the end of the desktop short cut which turns off many of Words add-ins and other things that I really don't know about. Yes when you run it in this mode, the preview handler does work as it should. Does know the cause of this behavior and have a solution?

Answer:Office 2007 Open Word Document Window

Since running the program with the /a locks out plug-ins and such, I should of known that a plug-in was causing the problem. I disabled Adobe plug-in and it now works. How about that.

I was wondering if anyone knew how to insert a pdf document into word without it just being a link to a file on my computer or without using.. 'embed as icon'. For example.   I want to have the filename in my document like so: blah blah blah  filename.pdf blah blah.  And if I click on filename.pdf within the word document it will open up the pdf.  I know how to do this as a simple hyperlink, but then i can only open the pdf on my computer. I need to email this word document and have other people be able to click on it and open the pdf too. any ideas on how this works?

Answer:inserting PDF into a word document

I don't think that is possible. PDF is a proprietary format that Word can't even open so I don't really see it doing anything else with a PDF file. And honestly in my mind it would be a huge security risk if Word could open some arbitrary file simply by opening a word document. But then again Microsoft have had their share of huge security mistakes so maybe you can do it.But if it was me I would simply attach both of the files to the email and be done with it.

In Office 2007, go into the Word doc where you want the image, put your cursor exactly where you want the image placed, go to the Ribbon, open Insert, and select Picture. This opens Windows Explorer; browse to the image you want to insert, and double-click it. That inserts the image into the document.

Then, right-click the image and select: Text Wrapping, and select Square. Or, there are other options for different kinds of text wrapping, but essentially, that's all there is to it.

I have been using Word and “Microsoft office 2007 - Document Imaging” for doing OCR and passing text to WORD. Recently it has been doing something very strange. When I try to send the OCR’d text to WORD (“Send text to Word”), WORD gives an error message:
“Server Busy. This action cannot be completed because the ‘document 1 - Microsoft Word’ program is not responding. …”
If I can minimize the empty Word document window, a small dialog box appears asking me “Do you want to convert from
[list of file formats] to WORD?” If I select HTML, The text finally appears in Word. Sometimes the Word/Document Imaging programs hang up completely and I have to go to “Task Manager” to get out of the predicament.

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.

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.

Answer:Inserting Bullets in a table in Word 2007

One way to get your text aligned is to select the bullet, right click and then select "Adjust Line Indents" from the menu that pops up.

You can manually change the list level for each line by selecting it and then pressing SHIFT+ALT+RIGHT ARROW (or LEFT ARROW) to send that line lower (or higher) in the list level respectively.

You can also align a line by selecting it, going to the ruler, and dragging the tab/indent to where you want it.

We are trying to make a form where people can select one of X options. To do this we are using the Insert Option Button from the Developer tab but when we go to make the next line of option buttons for the second question, it's linking the 2 lines so when you select an option on question 2 it deselects the one from question 1.
How do we separate the groupings?

Related but separate, when my coworker creates the buttons she has no trouble changing the text associated with the button but when I do it, it won't let me change it. Our Word versions seem to be a little different but the properties both say 2007...

Thanks.
 

Answer:Word 2007 - Inserting Option Buttons

Hi

For your first issue you need to define a group for each set of options. You'll find this in the Properties for each option button as Groupname. So, define the first set as (e.g.) Grp1 for each button in that set and Grp2 for the buttons in that set etc.

As for the second issue - would only be guessing. A long shot would be to compare the References you have against the ones your colleague has. You can find them in VBA/Tools/References.

If all else fails you can try a "Repair".

I checked the default Autosave location - not in there.
I checked the recycle bin - the doc is not in there and neither are any ~ files or autosaved files. I haven't emptied my recycle bin for months.

2. it may not be a link, rather, just a pleasantly blue underlined formatted text string.
3. if the url is not embedded in the text, then you can't convert text to an (unknown) url unless that text string is a wellformed HTTP anchor that resolves to a valid domain. The sort of quantum mechanics to predict where a word(s) should be hyperlinked to has yet to be developed

I have a document that has form fields that when I use it I tab through the various form fields filling out the information and when done with that I un-protect the document (previously I had put a "protect form" button in the tool bar). In word 2007 it seems to be a more drawn out process. Is there any way to just add a protect form button again and make this a one step process? Thanks in advance!
 

Answer:protecting a document in word 2007

You could surely record a macro and assign a button to the macro, no? Alternatively, see if you can't find the menu command to protect under customizing toolbars (Tools-->Customize in 2003)

I'm working on a Windows Server 2003 Terminal Server. We have 9 users in our office connect to this server to do everything they need to do. All users are having the same problem. There were some documents that got saved to the auto-recovery (this was several months ago). Since that time, every time we open a word doc, it shows the auto-recovery list on the left. when we close Word it asks:
"The document recovery task pane contains some recoverd files that have not been opened. Would you like to view these files the next time you start Word?"
Yes, I want to view these files OR
No, remove the files, I have saved the files I need.

We click NO to remove the files, hit OK and it tells us it "can't delete the file, can't read from the source file or disk.". then we have to click OK 6 times for each file that is in the auto-recovery pane on the left.

Any idea how to make this go away??

I believe that the document properties in Word 2007 (especially author) is being picked up from the login name in windows XP. I know how to change the document properties on a single document, however, I would like to know how to change the document properties for WORD -- period. In other words, I don't want my login name to be the author, I want my REAL name to be the author. Also, my company name is NOT in my login info, so there is no company coming up, I would like to change these properties so that everytime I start a document it's already there. So far everytime I change the properties, then close the document and start a new one, it goes back to the original. (I assume this problem is being perpetrated throughout the Office Suite...)

Is this an option?

Thanks for any information about this you can provide,

I am trying to compile an index for my collected travelogues. My intention is to have the Main Entry contain the name of a country and the Sub Entry contain a place in that country (eg England/Canterbury). From what I can determine it doesn't seem possible to set a default Main Entry (eg England) and then mark sub-entries (eg Canterbury) so that each time I mark an entry it automatically becomes a sub-entry of the main entry. It seems to me (and I'm probably wrong) that compiling an index for a 124 page document will be very time consuming as I will have to manually enter the main entry and sub-entry each time I want an item to appear as a sub-entry of a main entry.

Does my post make sense? A summary of what I want is:

MAIN ENTRY: England (default so I don't have to keep typing it in)
SUB-ENTRY: Canterbury (entered by Word when I mark it)

I compiled an index for another document some time ago in the same style but can't remember what I did.

I have just bought a new laptop with word 2007 installed on a free trial. I have just about got grips with it but cannot see a way to email a document as an email rather than as an attachment using outlook, which seems to be the only option. Previous versions of word allowed you to email the document in 'Outlook express' or 'Windows mail' as they now call it. Is there a way of doing this other than copying and pasting?

I'm in a bit of a muddle with a file. I run a Packard Bell computer with Windows 7 64 bit. I created a novel with word 2007, complete with an index. All seemed well until I wanted to change it in prep for making into an eBook. I removed the index marks and converted it to .doc format, and since then every time I do anything to the work it wont save it except as a new file in a new name. Then I can't delete the old file as it says it is still open (which it isn't). I can't change the name of it or move it or put it in a separate folder or anything. So now I have about six or seven of these frozen files scattered on my computer, getting confused as to which one is the most up to date, and I'm a bit worried that when I send one off for converting to eBook it might be rejected for being corrupted. I tried using an unlocker, and it said it had worked but the files are still frozen just the same. Help!!!

Answer:Word 2007 document frozen

identitycouch
Sounnds like you may be leaving temporary files around when the documents are saved/closed. Have a look in the folder where you document is stored for files with odd names starting with ~. These may be causing the problems.
For safety's sake do back everything up before deleting anything.
Hope this helps, but at least it will bring your post back to the top of the list and someone else might be able to give better advice.

How to remove preselected formatting Word 2007 documents. OR how to override existing formatting with different options ?

Answer:How to remove formatting from a Ms Word 2007 document

I'm not sure this is the best way to do this but you can make your changes such as tabs, borders, fonts etc and "save as" a template. Next time you run word you can click "New" and select "My Templates" and open the one you saved. I just looked into it and a better way to do this would be to make the changes you want to be the usual settings and then select the little arrow at the lower right hand corner of the "Page Setup" tab. Here you can select "Default" which will open a window that asks "Do you want to change the default settings for page setup" which is what I think you are trying to do. Good luck!message edited by chrisgraf2

Hello,

i need a bit of help. I've got approx 200 word documents (template.rtf documents) that are unique to our system and i have to back them up (in case they are changed/amended or deleted by users, and also so that we can look at these and decide where we can condense them i.e. similar letters into one document etc).
Anyhow I have managed to copy these over into a folder but the problem I have is that the name of the document is not on the actual document so when these are printed out an passed over to a third party to look at and change it looks like i am going to have to write the name of the document onto each one.

Is there a way of automatically inserting the name of document into the actual document (the footer maybe) without having to open them up?

thanks

Hi there

My appoligies if there is already a thread on this topic, but I have tried to go through everything and have not picked anything up. My problem:

I have designed a letterhead layout for one of my clients in Microsoft Word 2007(there is an image inserted into the top of the document, then I have inserted text boxes containing contact details etc), now when the client opens the letterhead, she only sees the the image, the text boxes are gone???

Now she has just sent me an email explaining her problem, but when I open the attachment I see the text boxes with their content and everything else. Are we going crazy here? The ONLY thing I can think of, that would cause this problem, is that I am using Office 2007 and she is using and older version, but what boggles my mind here, is that I have saved the document as "Word 97-2003 document" and my client still can't see the text boxes (only the image header). Am I doing something wrong here? Is there something need to install?

I am using Windows XP, Professional, version 2002 (Service Pack 3) with Microsoft Office 2007, my client says she is also using XP 2002, but with Microsoft Office 2003.

Anyone's assistance here would be greatly appreciated.

I'm going to tell the whole story incase the answer is somewhere lost in one of the steps I took. I'm writing a paper for school and it needs to be on Word 2007. I have two accesses to this type of Microsoft Word. At my boyfriend's house and at school. I started it at my boyfriends house and didn't have my flash drive, so I e-mailed it as an attatchment to my yahoo e-mail. When I was at school, I opened it and worked on it again. I saved it. Later still at school, I opened it, worked on it again and saved it. As I was saving it I realized that the one I had originally opened from my boyfriend's house was the file extention .docx and the file extention my school uses, even though they both are Microsoft Word 2007, was .doc. So I saved it twice just incase one file wouldn't open. When I got to my boyfriends house, I opened the .doc file. It came up and I finished my paper.

MsgBox "This document is read only."
'UserForm1.Show
End Sub

I saved it in a Normal code module and set a breakpoint. It does get executed every time a document is opened, but the readonly test is always False, even when the document has the Read Only flag set and the title bar clearly says "(Read Only)".
 
Is there a way to modify this macro so that the MsgBox statement will execute when a document is opened read only?

So I am officially desperate! I worked on a project in Microsoft Word 2007. I then went to go open it the next day and all of the text was completely gone!! I am only a beginner when it comes to computers so I have absolutely no idea what happened.
To better understand the problem here were the chain of events:
I worked on 2 documents, saved them in a folder, and then closed MSWord
I then worked on them the next day not realizing that for some reason they were opened as "Read Only"
Seeing that, I copied the the text and saved them in new documents
I went to Documents and attempted to move the new documents into the folder with the originals but an error message reading something like "this action cannot be completed because the file is open in another program" when the file was NOT open
In my frustration I attempted to move it over and over again to no avail
I gave up and closed the Documents folder and turned off my computer
The very next day I went to open the project and both the original documents and the copied ones were COMPLETELY EMPTY!!!
the files were still there but the all of text was completely gone!
Through Microsoft forums I've repeatedly tried the "Recover Text from any File" and "Open and Repair" methods
They've remained completely empty
I don't think I can redo the project correctly in the time it is due! Please any info will help. Thanks

Also, if this helps- I tried to save another Document and MSW says... Read more

Have you checked the recycle bin ... just in case? If it's not there try 'Recuva' freeware and often suggested here at TSG:

I have a weird situation opening a 'word' document. If we call this docA and I try to open it by clicking on it with 'Word' already running it will take 40 seconds to open. If I then close docA and open it again, it opens immediately. Similarly if I've previously opened docB then docA will open immediately. docA is only about 50k and other docs of various sizes are OK.
I've uninstalled and reinstalled Office XP which made no difference.
Any ideas very welcome.

Answer:Office XP Word slow to open first document

What is the brand and model of computer, and how much memory do you have?
There is a Microsoft Update for Office 2002 and XP that you should install if not already done.
First, I would run the free CCleaner, then consider others to remove congestion. Has your system been defragged? Have you run antispyware, adware, and antivirus scans? Suggest you run: Windows Defender, Adware 2.0.0.7, SpyBot 1.5.2. Or professional paid stuff such as AVG, SpySweeper, Spyware Doctor, Nod32, etc., if for no other reason than to rule out common causes.
Sometimes the problem is exacerbated by an install of a multifunction printer. HP, Lexmark, and Epson are particularly problematic. You would need to uninstall the printer, then reboot, and remove all evidence of it with RegClean, then reboot, defrag, then reinstall the printer.
