Program to allow you fill out an application/doc in PDF format without printing it?

Question: Program to allow you fill out an application/doc in PDF format without printing it?

Hi,

I would really like a program that would allow me to fill out an application/document right in the PDF file, without printing it out first and then scanning it back onto the computer.

Is there anyway to do this?

Preferred Solution: Program to allow you fill out an application/doc in PDF format without printing it?

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.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello,

I'm working on an Excel project. I need a Macro to find duplicate values in Column D and when a duplicate is found, format the font color and fill color for that row, column A thru E. Any ideas?

What I currently have finds the duplicates, but only contionally formats items in that column. I don't want it to be conditional, but here is what I'm using:

Private Sub btnDuplicates_Click()
Columns("D:.D").Select
Selection.FormatConditions.AddUniqueValues
Selection.FormatConditions(Selection.FormatConditions.Count).SetFirstPriority
Selection.FormatConditions(1).DupeUnique = xlDuplicate
With Selection.FormatConditions(1).Font
.Color = -16383844
.TintAndShade = 0
End With
With Selection.FormatConditions(1).Interior
.PatternColorIndex = xlAutomatic
.Color = 13551615
.TintAndShade = 0
End With
Selection.FormatConditions(1).StopIfTrue = False
Range("E2").Select
End Sub

Any idea how to do this?
 

Answer:Non-Conditional Format: Duplicates Values in 1 Column Format Fill and Font Entire Row

I got rid of the conditional formatting you recorded, because I thought the best way was to loop through the cells in the column and try to find them in the range above and below, and it found them, to format the range of cells from A:E associated with the cells. The problem with using conditional formatting is that you can't loop through cells containing a certain format, because the cell object is not actually formatted. I hope this helps...
Code:

Sub Test()
Dim cell As Range, strValue As String
For Each cell In Range("D1:D10")
strValue = cell.Value
Select Case cell.Address
Case Is = "$D$1"
If Not Range(cell.Offset(1, 0), cell.End(xlDown)).Find(strValue) Is Nothing Then GoTo Format
Case Else
If Not Range(cell.Offset(-1, 0), cell.End(xlUp)).Find(strValue) Is Nothing Or _
Not Range(cell.Offset(1, 0), cell.End(xlDown)).Find(strValue) Is Nothing Then GoTo Format
Continue:
End Select
Next

Exit Sub
Format:
' you can obviously change this to suite your needs
With Range(cell.Offset(0, -3), cell.Offset(0, 1)).Font
.Bold = True
.Size = 10
.ColorIndex = 16
End With
GoTo Continue

End Sub
[\CODE]

Hi! I'm trying to fill in forms at irs.gov. I can fill them out just fine, but when I go to print, it prints a blank form without any of the info that I have filled in. I filled out one of the forms at work and it printed just fine. Why can't I get this to work at home. I can't do our tax returns at work. Please help me. Need to get our returns done.

Also, there are several sites at irs.gov where you can provide your information and they will prepare your return. How secure is this?
I have prepared our returns and know which forms to use etc., but it would be nice to have it prepared by one of these services to double check my calculations. I am just a little leary of putting this information out there. Am I being paranoid?

Thanks for your help at this stressful time of year.

Question: Zero fill program

I am getting ready to install XP on my sisters computer that currently is running ME. I have heard that it is best to "Zero" a hard drive and then format with with the XP disc during install.

1- Is this correct information?
2- Where can I get a "Zero" fill program?
3- Why is this prefered?

Andy

Answer:Zero fill program

Zeroing a hard drive is what some people call doing a low level format - even though a true LLF can't be easily done outside a factory environment. It basically sets all of the data on the hard drive to 0's, hence the name. A zero can be done, but the XP partition/format util seems to do the job just fine for me.

To zero the drive properly, you will need to download the util off the website of your hard disk's manufacturer. DO NOT try to use one which is not designed for your hard-drive, as this may cause your hard-drive to become inoperable.

Some people like to do this as it completely wipes the hard drive of information, making it like it has just come from the factory floor.

Personally, I'd just go with the XP format, it works perfectly well.

Hiya,Yes, I know, what mug is still using DOS programs?!Well the program I use is very specialised & very good & used daily. However, I can't run the program in a full sized window in either W2K or XP like I can in 98SE. I've tried matching as best I can all the settings in the properties tab for the program's .exe file that are set in 98SE, but the program, whilst fully displayed, only runs in the top half of my screen's display. I now need to upgrade the machine I run it on & ditch 98SE.Any ideas how I can get it to display "normally"?Cheers.

Answer:DOS program won't fill the screen in W2K or XP

Dual boot with 98se, Change the drive thats in for a new drive Load 98se on it, then remove it. after you put the old drive back connect 98se drive as slave then use a Dual Boot Manager to choose which you want to run at boot. Thats how I do it with 98se and XP home

These are sample requests that are sent through a form on our site. The site we enter the requests into is actually a different site so we don't database them or anything. Currently we copy / paste all the info line for line into the form and submit it. This gets very time consuming.

Hi,Really stuck here and looking for some help.I have an excel sheet that I want to use to record the times people work a shift at work. The sheet is set up as follows. D3 has the workers name that I manually type in.E3 has a drop down list of times of the day at half hour intervals (08:00, 08:30, 09:00 and so on up to 17:00). This is to represent the start time.F3 is the exact same as E3. This is being used to represent the end time.Underneath those cells on row 5 I have the timeline across the page. A5 has 08:00. B5 has 08:30. C5 has 09:00 and so on again up to 17:00.On row 6 directly underneath the times I have the conditional formatting currently set up so that when a start and end time are selected up the top the cell in row 6 under the chosen times turn green.Here's the tricky part. How do I get the cells (in row 6) between the chosen times to also turn green so that basically if I select 08:00 start and 16:00 finish I have a line of green cells representing the shift?Hope that makes sense?

Ok, I'm going to be honest with you here. This is a question for an assessment I have and I need some ideas. I don't expect anyone to answer the question for me but any suggestions / ideas would be appreciated.

Q) Imagine that you are currently working on the help desk for a large organisation. A staff member calls with a problem that they are experiencing in a MS Word document. They have a colour photograph that they scanned in GIF format. When they print their document the photo appears to be of poor quality. Write an imaginary dialog between yourself and the staff member that works through as many possible causes and solutions to this problem that you can think of. Your dialog should cover / include organisational requirements for logging, recording and following up the call.

Your answer / conversation should:-
a) determine the details of the clients problem,
b) prioritise the clients problems and hypothesise solutions
c) test the intended solution before implementation
d) carry out the agreed solution
e) check that the solution has worked properly
f) prepare a report

Sheesh! They don't ask for much, do they?

So far, I've come up with one solution that the staff member rescan the image as a BMP or JPG instead of a GIF as GIF's are best for 'flat images' made up of flat areas of a limited number of colours such as logos and line drawings.

Any ideas?
 

Answer:Printing a photo saved in GIF format

TIFF is probably the best format for a scanned image. JPG isn’t a good choice for that as you have to get into compression quality with them.

There is also a question of the resolution they scanned. If you scan at 300 PPI you are getting everything in a good photo. 200 PPI would probably be fine.

Word doesn’t have problems with images that are large from scanning at a high PPI. I just inserted a full sized 7Mp image from my camera that is 20Mb and Word sized it to the width of the document. It can then be resized easily in Word if that is too large.

I have been trying to reformat a 2004 Dell desktop with XP Service Pack 1a (sorry for the lack of specs; the computer is at work, and I'm not currently). I've reformatted twice. The first time, I reformatted, installed the drivers, installed Mozilla Firefox (as I hate Internet Explorer) and Avast Anti-Virus. Windows update had several failed updates. After clicking on Windows update, a "wupdmgr.exe Application Error 0x80000003" appeared. Then, every program I tried to open created the same error. I rebooted the computer only to find a message that the computer has been shut down and would not continue.

I reformatted again today and followed most of the same steps above. The first time I clicked on the Windows Update icon, the same message appeared as before. Could this be a problem with Avast or Windows Update? Should I try to upgrade from Service Pack 1a to SP3 before installing an anti-virus program or am I totally off on my theory?

Thanks in advance for any help with this matter.

Answer:[SOLVED] Application Errors After Format

No, it is best to install 1-2-3 as some modules are needed for 3 that are installed in 2. My personal opinion would be to try using another disk.

Hi there,

We have a user that is experiencing problems when trying to print spreadsheets that contain Pivot Tables.

It's Office 2000. As an admin I can print them fine from my machine however if i log into his machine as an admin it doesnt work. So I've kind of ruled out the possibilty that it is a permissions problem.

Have tried repairing and reinstalling Office but this has not resolved the problem. He has tried printing to a different printer and again it crashes.

This is the error message:

EXCEL.exe has generated errors and will be closed by Windows.
You will need to restart the program.

An error log is being created.

Thing is, an error log is not created, not in Event Viewer anyway. Can't find anything on the MS site either.

If anyone can help it would be most appreciated.

Thanks!

Have you tried printing from excel files in question with automatic calculation turned off? Go to tools - options - calculations - then click on 'manual' instead of automatic (default).

Please Help,

Hardware Profile & HijackThis attached below.

Description of problem follows:

On power up, XP boots but I get ctfmon.exe Application Error. The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000033).

Then I get "View Mgr has encountered a problem and needs to close".

Followed by "Dell Support has encountered a problem and needs to close".

Followed by "Windows Defender User Interface has encountered a problem and needs to close".

Then Norton AntiVirus gives me a warning saying that my protection is out of date even though I have been updating it. Also the last scan date shown does not reflect my recent scans so maybe something is stoping this.

XP now finishes booting up but my printers are disabled and I can't reinstall them.

I have installed and run, in both accounts, Spybot Search and Destroy, Ad-Aware SE, Norton AntiVirus 2005, SpywareBlaster, and several other programs. CoolWWWSearch has been found and removed I think?

I'm having sporadic issues with many users connected over the network to a print server. If the printer is their default printer the application used to print will freeze/lockup until they log out / restart their machine. The only way to fix this (from my experience) is to set their default printer to something else (like Adobe PDF) or bypass the print server completely and do it by direct TCP/IP.

Has anyone ever heard of this issue and know of a fix? Think it is a driver related problem?

Answer:Application locks up when printing over the network via print server

right off the bat, it sounds like a driver issue or MAJOR dns issue. Are the default printer drivers PostScript by any chance? Are you offering both 64 and 32 bit drivers?

Hi again. I know some printers can do this. I would like to ask your opinion on

1) which printers are recommended and also,
2) if some software can do this so that a normal inkjet printer will work.

Some printers can take a document, any document being printed, and within the Printer's Properties, transform the 8.5x11 document into something four times as big (17x22), 16 times as big (34x44) or whatever (by area).

It does this by (say for the 17x22 printout) printing each 1/4 section of the original document blown up to a full 8.5x11 page. Thus, these 4 pages (or tiles) can then be pieced together to get a much bigger presentation. I've seen printers that can do this up to about 5 ft high by 4 ft wide (about six 8.5x11 tiles high by five wide). Of course you can print even bigger if the printer can handle legal or 11x17 paper.

Is anyone aware of such printers and can you make any recommendations? Alternatively, is anyone aware of software that can do this same type of task, where a regular color inkjet could be used?

This is for a non-profit organization, so cost would be a factor. Thanks a bunch!

Answer:Application to copy & paste text in a format

Where are you going to be copying the text from? If you are copying from the web you will likely need to paste into a document first. If you are already copying from a document then what you want should be quite easy using a VBA macro.

Hi,

I'm a screen printer so rely heavily on my Epson 4880 to print films and transparencies up to A2 in size.
I have had the printer for 2 months and have experienced no difficulties, in fact the complete opposite.

Today, no matter what size paper stock is in the tray or selected in my print driver menu, it will only print A4 in size onto the paper, essentially shrinking and cropping my image appropriately, as if it isn't taking on board the fact there is A3 paper in there and that is what the document size is.

I have tried all manner of driver and printer settings for the past 4 hours and am absolutely lost, and Epson's help is completely useless.

Can anyone suggest what may be wrong before i pay for a technician to come and fix it?

Thanks for any help, it needs fixing ASAP or my orders are screwed!

I have an old program that came with one of my older HP Photosmart 1215 printers called HP photo printing software. This program allows you to select a template like a page of wallets or a page of three 4 x 6 prints or a page of four 3 x 5 prints, a single 8 x 10...etc. Once you have that template up, you import photos into the left window pane and then drag which pictures you want to print into one of the template boxes.

I have just upgraded to Vista and although the program works in Vista, I thought there might be something a little newer out there that did the same thing.

Does anyone have any recommendation on any type of program that will do this same type deal. i.e. Let me print whatever size photos I want?

Hi, critical one this for me and desperation is setting in.

I have an application to load and assess for work before the end of the week. As a new expensive app it is USB "dongle" protected. When I try to run the setup.exe to install it I get the following error word for word:

"SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\VirtualDeviceDrivers. VDD. Virtual Device Driver format in the registry is invalid. Choose 'Close' to terminate the application". That address is reported incomplete without HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\, and why is VDD displayed unattached to its address, or am I just being too paranoid? I am then offered Close and Ignore as options.

The entry under VDD in the registry is:

"VDD, REG_MULTI_SZ, C:\Progra~1\Symantec\S32EVNT1.DLL" presumably a Symantec NAV dll. Symantec's support system is of course no real help.

Not being a registry wizard. can anyone else offer any insight as to what is wrong here?

I have installed a program (CD Label Print - Comes with Canon Pixma ip4200 printer) on my home computer.

Installation worked and the program is installed, however - when I go to open it up, it will not go into the actual program, as it recognizes the printer is not connected to the computer (which it isn't - it's on my desk at work!!)

My question is:

Is there anyway I can get into this program, without actually having the printer plugged into the computer I want to be able to get into the program to edit some labels, save them to a flash drive, then take them to work for printing...

Or even, if I were to plug the printer in for the initial time I load the program, then if I were to unplug it, would the program load up a second time? Or give me the same error message that the compatible printer is not connected to the computer?

Hi all,

I have the program available to email to anyone who would be willing to see if there's a quick fix-around...it's just a little large (4mb zipped).

I'm sure this will either end up being a "yes, this can be done, and here's how <quickly>" situation, or a "no, it can't be done" situation...

And where do I find what I need to copy? :confused

Any help in this area is so appreciated.

Thanks.
 

Answer:Application vs. Program

Well basically an Application is an executable file such as Notepad.exe whereas a program can contain more than one application along with numerous other files such as DLL files.

Since the days when Windows had a registry it is far more difficult just to copy a program as it often has numerous entries in the registry which will point to locations of files within the program - this is why prgrams these days are generally installed. Only if the program contains a small number of files or is a self contained executable (such as Notepad which is both a program and an application rolleyes) can a program be copied.

Hope that's all clear. :confusedrolleyes

I know i can back up the whole computer using Norton Ghost but what if i just want to back up a particular software?

Answer:Backup program for a particular application

Not generally doable. When programs are installed, they make changes in the registry of the computer and in various parts of the Windows operating system. Simply finding a program that will copy over the files, will not copy the registry changes or any other changes..it simply copies files. That is why people who try this run into problems. To date I know of no program that copies applications into a useful format to save. There are migration programs and imaging software etc, but nothing for single applications to my knowledge.

Ive never done it, but I'd recommend looking into sockets, you can send data between a host program and server program and such.

i have recently noticed a problem when i download and install new programs. for example i downloaded and installed ashampoo burning studio and everything worked fine but when i restared the pc and tried to open it i got a message which read "the item has been changed or moved etc.. do you wish to delete this shortcut"

i thought that might just be a problem with the shortcut which suddenly displayed a generic icon but even the .exe file in the folder had the same issue.

this has happened every time i install this program and others as well which i have tested.

help would be greatly appreciated. thank you!

Trying to use a map making program for a video game. Worked fine for the past week, for whatever reason it suddenly won't show up in applications anymore.

I can load it and it seems to load fine (if I load another version and connect to the game server it gives me an error saying, "Client already connected").

When I look into Task Manager it is listed under processes, but not applications.

Please help.
TY!

Answer:Program in processes but not application.

Go to Task Manager, end the process. Scroll through the list and make sure there are no other process started associated with the program.
Start the program, it should start and run now.

Given the effort made to return my desktop to working order came to nothing - Still trying to use XPsp3. I remembered the fully ready but unconnected sata drive still sitting in the machine. I hooked it up and I am now back in the game.

I now want to reformat the SSD drive so that I plan to use acronis to copy the disk contents back to a clean ssd drive.

I would like to format the ssd disk in situ rather than using a usb caddy for speed reasons.
My question is what freeware program would you suggest?
Many thanks,
s.
 

Answer:program to format SSD drive

So with a little searching I came across the way to make a bootable usb drive http://www.techychennai.com/bootable-usb-pendrive/

So I want to run a dos format command from it...
Is this possible?

Greetings...

I have a dual monitor setup...a large screen and a small screen...

With the Task Bar on the small screen, when I click on the "Programs" button from the Task Bar...I can only see some of my available programs...
With the task bar on the large screen, I can see all of my available programs, but if I add any more, I won't be able to see them.

On my home system, the "Programs" listing is 3 columns wide, and all available programs are successfully displayed for my selection pleasure.

What setting can I tweak to cause this "multi-column" "Program" listing to occur on my machine here at work ?

Thanks!
 

Answer:Program List Format

Do you have little black arrows at the top and bottom of the list of programs? If so, try this:

Right-click your start button, then go to properties. From the Start Menu tab, click Customize (the one next to Start Menu) Now click on the Advanced tab, and scroll through the list until you get to "Scroll Programs", and uncheck it.

click Ok, then OK again, and test it out.

I'm selling my laptop with a HD and I need some kind of software that will do a deep clean. I remember a bootdisk software that was being passed around a few years that did a deep clean that took around 24 hrs.
 

Answer:Need a deep format program.

Lots of people will recommend DBAN - Darik's Boot and Nuke. Never personally used it, though.

I like Active@killdisk myself.

There are other options, such as making a BartPE disc, I suppose, or getting some *questionable* discs which I won't mention here.

This is a two-part question.

1) Should I replace Windows Video Player with another like VLC media player 2.1.3
and, if so, why?

2) Which is the best and/or smallest video format?

I DL and UL videos off the net....

Any assist would be helpful...
 

Answer:Video program and format?

1. I always use VLC a) because it doesn't spy on me or have services running in the background and b) it includes all the codecs so I don't have to run around trying to figure out what codec is missing when a video refuses to play.
