A colleague has created a multi (15+) sheet workbook template in Excel that she wishes to enter information into on a weekly basis and convert to a Word document/report each month. Is there an easier way to transfer it to Word than copy and paste each sheet every time?I am not sure why it has to be in Word format, but she insists!!

Answer:Convert Excel workbook into Word document?

It can be done but not easily. A macro is here for an example - this would need an "outer loop" added to loop through all the sheets. And not much guarantee what the finished article will look like.I would query why it *has* to be in Word. If it is just going to be printed off, you can format Excel sheets so they print out as if they did not come from Excel.

URGENT!! (Isn't it always?) I need to convert a multiple tab excel document to a word document. I read that I can save as a pdf, then convert to word but I have only Adobe Reader. If this can be done, is there a way to conserve the original format and the links in the excel doc?I would prefer leaving in excel but the customer needs a word document. 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.

Anyone know if one can take a PDF document, such as this example and turn it into a MS Word document. I realize this can be done the opposite way, by converting a Word document into a PDF and making it fillable PDF, but is it possible to "undo" a fillable form once it is created?

Reason this is needed is because I have program that uses MS word templates...many government forms are in fillable PDF. It is extremely labor intensive to manually type everything in, and it would be nice to leverage the application by letting it fill in these fields automatically from a Word template.

I could type out and create my own Word template, but I'd really like to streamline this as much as possible since manually creating some of these documents would be pretty brutal; adding database fields is way easier than typing up a full document.

*I do not own a copy of Adobe Writer/Pro, but I'm also not opposed to purchasing software that can accomplish this (within reason).

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.

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.

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
Modname: kernel32.dll
modvers: 5.1.26002180

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.

This might be kind of tricky.

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

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

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

Hi all.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

Hi all.

Just to advise that I am going to mark this topic as 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.

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.

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!

I have a non-profit org that requires multiple forms of data and information collection. I am looking for shortcuts to make my life more sane. I have an excel document with a couple hundred lines of data, including client names, addresses, etc. I also have a Word document that requires the data that is contained in the Excel document to be filled into specific places. Can I have excel generate a new Word document form a template using the Excel data? I am using Microsft Office 2007. I would need a seperate document for each line.

Answer:Excel to Word document

I have just the thing!

I am a Macro novice so please don't expect me to be able to explain how this works.

If you create a button and assign this macro to it, when clicking the button it will export everything between two cells into a word document (as an image).

The important bits you've got to worry about are:

Set wd = wdApp.Documents.Open("C:\test.doc") - c:\test.doc is the location of a word document (you have to set this up).

Range("A1:G22").CopyPicture xlScreen, xlPicture - The Range between cells is what is coppied.

Sub PasteToWord()

Dim wdApp As Object
Dim wd As Object

On Error Resume Next
Set wdApp = GetObject(, "Word.Application")
If Err.Number <> 0 Then
Set wdApp = CreateObject("Word.Application")
End If
On Error GoTo 0

Set wd = wdApp.Documents.Open("C:\test.doc")

wdApp.Visible = True

Range("A1:G22").CopyPicture xlScreen, xlPicture

End Sub

Hope this helps!

Hi There

I'm not sure if this is possible to do using VBA. Here is an example only.

In an Excel spread sheet, suppose that I have the following in Column A starting in Cell A2 with the coresponding Numbers in Column B starting in cell B2 :

Revenues $100,000
NOI $50,000
Costs $10,000
I also have an MS Word document minimized that has the following words: The words obviously could change.

I have been working for this company for 1 year and have made revenues of $XXXXXX. My NOI are only $XXXXXX and I also know form my accounting department that my costs are now down to $XXXXX.
What I want to do now is the following. Instead of copying and pasting from the Excel to the word document the dollar amounts, I want to create a macro that picks the dollar amounts from the Excel worksheet an places them in the proper places in the word document where the XXXXX are. To create your workbook and the MS Word Doc, use the generic default names (book1 and document1)

I believe that I have expalained myself on what I want to do. keep in mind that the text in the MS Word document is not fixed. The XXXX can be anywhere. You can use the words revenues, NOI and costs as identifiers in the word document. Also, in the Excel workbook, the information need not be specifically in Columns A or B. But once again the identifiers are the same, Revenues, NOI and Costs.

Hi guys,

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

What I want to be able to do is enter all this information into the database and then automatically generate the report. The database is basically setup, including the queries I need. I just don't know how get the information over to word in the way need.

The main problem is that I need a summary section that lists the number and types of risks found above, and then the details of each individual risk below. So a very simplified example:

Report for ENTITY 1.

1 High Risk
2 Medium Risks
6 Low Risks

Risk 1: RISK 1's NAME

Risk 2: RISK 2's NAME
Severity: Medium

I know that this is not a standard "mail merge", but I thought it might be possible using VBA. I have used a (very) little VBA, but I am willing to learn more. I just need a push in the right direction as to where I might get the information I need.

The word document is used for the details of the user form in excel to be transferred to the word document.

I have created the forms and the word template and i am looking for a way the following can be done when the "SAVE" button is clicked on the user form in excel.

1) Have the details from the user form transferred into the word document at the top where the corresponding headers are.

2) The word document file name automatically created(using the issue title in the user form) and inserted into the excel sheet under issues for it to be reopen and viewed in Microsoft word.

I know it would be simpler to have all this in one form but the idea is to get someone to fill out the issue only then someone of higher authority can update the issue's progress but still allowing the issue creator( or any one else) the access to re-open it and see the updates in a read only format in word.

complicated i know but that's how its got to be.

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.

Hi all,

And then I want to add "1 " before each line in a way that is copy pastable, so it looks like so:

1 Name1
1 Name2
1 Name3

Is there anyway to do this. it's mostly just to help with copying text from Word/Excel documents onto forums so it formats correctly. Any help at all is much appreciated


Answer:Solved: Word/Excel 2010 Adding text before each line in a Document

Hi Matt,
It's probably a little cleaner to do it in Excel than in Word, but also a few extra steps. In Word:

You can run a find a replace. Without including the quotes, find "^p" (the paragraph symbol) and replace with "^p1 " (there's a space after the 1). This replaces the paragraph break at the end of each line with another paragraph break and then "1 " at the beginning of the next line. The problem with this method is that the first line won't have a 1 in front of it (because there's no paragraph break before that line) and the last line will have a stray 1 after it. But this should be relatively minor cleanup.

Alternatively, in Excel:

Insert a column to the left of your names. Without including the quotes, enter "1" in the first cell and copy it down your spreadsheet. Insert a column to the right of your names and enter this formula (assuming your names are now in column B):

=A1&" "&B1

This should give you the result you're looking for in column C. Hope that helps.

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.

on the ribbon tab
Select Mailings
Select "Start Mail Merge"
Select "Normal Word Document"
then save the Word document.
