I know the Include Field will include part of the text from an Include File if it is in a bookmark. The format is {IncludeText "File Path" Bookmark}. I have 2 files: Source and Target.

Source is a form template. I included a Text Form Field and gave it the bookmark AA. I also included other text in a "normal" bookmark, BB.

In Target I have 2 fields: {IncludeText "C:\\Source.dot" AA} and {IncludeText "C:\\Source.dot" BB}. The text from BB shows up, but the one for AA is blank.

If I go into Source and look under Bookmarks, both AA and BB are there.

BTW, I have tried it with the Source form both "Protected" and "Unprotected" and it didn't make any difference.

Any idea why this is happening, and more importantly, any idea on how to make this work? If not, it seems like a real bug in Word 2003 as they are both definitely considered to be bookmarks.

Thank you,

Stuart

I support a software program that has a proprietary menu item when you right-click a calculated field. It has been this way for 10-15years and has worked in WinXP through Win10 with never an issue. This past week I had 3 different customers tell me that when they right-click one of these fields to access what is normally the Cut/Copy/Paste/ menu that also includes our menu item, they are now getting the Windows default cut/copy/paste/Right to Left Reading order/Show Unicode control characters/ etc menu. The only thing I can think of that they all have in common besides these are all Window 10 64bit pc's, is that they all have one update to Adobe Acrobat (17.012.20098).
I was able to resolve for a moment on two of these workstations by having the user go into Language/Advanced settings and actually selected "English (Unites States) from the "Override for Windows display language" even though that settings is implied by the "recommended". But after the pc was turned off over night and back to it the next day, the problem is back and that setting is still selected. All language and regional settings on all the pc's are defaulted to English/Unites States. I do not know what other avenue to go in. Could something hae been switched on or off in Windows (by this Adobe update perhaps?) that would make the context text menu switch to Windows text default right-click menu?

Any help is appreciated!

I have several pages that have several body tags per page. I am using a compination of ASP, JS, SQL and HTML. Depending on the actions/decisions of the end user, any one of the body tags on a given page may load in the client's browser. See below.

html>
head><Title></title></head>
BODY background="images/waterback.jpg">

form>
INPUT id=txtEmployerName name=txtEmployerName tabindex="0">
/form>

/body>

body>
form>

INPUT id=txtEmployerNumber name=txtEmployerName tabindex="0">
/form>

/body>
/html>

In one body tags I have txtEmployerNumber and in the other I have txtEmployerName. Each receives focus at different times and only one at a time is sent to the client's browser.

How do I get focus (place the cursor) in the txtEmployerName box if that is the set of body tags that is sent to the browser?

Thanks.
 

Answer:focus on a text box

Add the onLoad= parameter to your body tag.

For instance, let's say your form is named "form," then the body tag that goes with txtEmployerName would resemble this....

body onLoad="document.form.txtEmployerName.focus();"

Good luck,
Richard

Greetings! I've searched everywhere for the answer to this issue. It must be common, but I can't find it anywhere. I'm using MS Word 2007, but the problem was the same in 2003. I sometimes get a text box that is behind regular text. I need to move it. One normally just selects a text box and drags, or cut and paste, it where one wants. However, when it is behind text, it can't be selected. I have found no way to select normal text and "send it behind."

How do I get to this text box that is behind my regular text? I've been told to "move the regular text out of the way, then you will be able to get to your text box." But the text box moves with text!

Thanks,

First I thought it was my mouse, then I thought it might be OpenOfficeWriter, but then it happened in notepad and while typing text into this forum as well.  It is pretty darn annoying for sure.While typing the cursor changes focus from where I am typing to some other place in the previously typed document. Does an(there it goes again, this time completely gone from the text field altogether) does anyone have any idea what could cause this?Anyone know of a virus that has done this?

Answer:Cursor losing focus while editing text

My first thought would be to check and see what other programs you have running.Does it usually just put the cursor back at the beginning of the textbox you have open, or does it jump all over the place?Also, a virus scan wouldn't hurt.  Make sure your virus scanner is up to date before scanning as well.

Question: Text Field Issues

While the main reason for this help request is to help me fix the text field problem Im having, there are a couple other problems as well.

It has become an ongoing problem, no clue what causes it. In certain games, so far only Mabinogi and Test Drive Unlimited, when I go to type something in a text field, my computer pauses, and people talking in Ventrilo repeat themselves over and over for a couple seconds. The same thing happens when I exit a text field in said games. No one else I have talked to has this issue, and I am fairly certain they have slower computers than me, so no clue what the issue is.

The other problem is my graphics card. I have an ATI Radeon x800 card, and when I am playing games, I get errors when it does not even seem to be taking up much memory. I was playing Test Drive Unlimited which I just got today, and I was getting a report error window for ccc.exe about every minute in game. If I ignored it, I could keep going, but eventually another error window popped up saying the same thing, so I shut the game down. I meet the minimum requirements, but I have no clue why its doing this. My computer has a history of overheating, but I don't know if its due to that.

Also, is there a program I can use to monitor the heat in my computer? I'd like to know if that is truly the problem here, as I have been told that my card could be damaged by now if it is overheating.

Answer:Text Field Issues

How do I deselect/unselect text using dhtml/dom?

background:
I like my forms to wrap when the user tabs through them, (ie pressing tab on the last element takes you to the first. Pressing backtab on the first takes you to the last).

I have keydown event handlers that I attach to the first and last elements of each form that make that happen. It is a big convenience to the user.

The problem that I have is that when wrapping out of a text field that is selected (and they all are by default when you tab into them) the field stays selected. This makes sense because I "cancel the default action" which would include deselecting the text. I have tried every dom method that I can think of to unselect or deselct the text. I have tried giving focus to itself and to other text fields, I have tried the click() method on it (clicking with a real mouse deselects the text but the dom click method does not.) I have not tested this in other browsers to see how they handle it. If there is a dom select() method, should there not be an unselect method? And whild we are at it, should there not be two parms for select that tell you the first and last character of text to select with the default being select all? If that were the case I could select(0,0) on the element and acheive the needed result.

Ok, first, I'm running Windows XP Pro SP2 on an HP Pavilion 8760c. It originally came with Windows 98, but the previous owner upgraded it to the XP sometime before giving the computer to me. I do NOT have any disks, neither the original system disks nor any restore disks, nor does there seem to be any restore partition on the hard drive.

First problem is -- for some reason when I try to type into any text fields in any windows based programs, the cursor goes into hyperblink mode, won't click into any text field, and won't let me type in any of them. I first noticed the problem when I tried to use internet explorer, I went to Google like normal and while it will let me type in the address bar at the top, it won't type into the Google search field. I have since found out it is NOT IE specific, but it won't let me type into the windows help search field, or the field where you enter a name for a restore point when manually setting it, or in the captcha box on a game program I use or pretty much anything windows based. I downloaded Firefox and I can type in Firefox with no problems, which is fine for searching the web, but does not fix the problem.

Second, with the system restore... this computer used to work fine. I used it occasionally at my old house, then we moved and the computer sat idle for about nine months, and I just hooked it back up last week. When I did I found problems with the sound as well as the problem with the text fields I mentione... Read more

Answer:MS Access 2010 Text Field Question

There are 3 ways to do this.
1. This method uses a query to combine the data, but it will not store the combined data and it will not refresh on it's own if you add or change the data.
2. This method combines the data in and Unbound field by making it the Control Source of the Field. This will not save the data to a table but will automatically update.
3. This method uses VBA in the After Update Event Procedures of the 3 fields and will automatically update the data and also save it to a table if required.
The choice is yours.

I thought I read somewhere that it was possible to do a search on a reserved character by putting "" around it. I made the mistake of annotating some appended text fields with "**" (without the quotes) so I would know which records had been added. At some point, I want to remove those two asterisks. . . but, of course, I suddenly realized that Access recognizes an "*" as a wild card meaning something/anything, not the "*" character. So a search using Like "***" or "*'**'" either finds nothing or finds every record with anything in the field.

So the question is, is there a way to search for a literal "**" in Access? OBP. . . are you home today?

If I use the acImport or acLink I get the same results. Which is an error importing (I get all the data just not the text values in the column) or a null value in the link when view from Access (even though you can open the spreadsheet with excel and see the true data). If I use the import Wizard and change the Field to text it that data is fine.

I also tried acImporting to an existing table with the field set a text but it changes it back to numeric and screws up.

I have a vision impared user and I need a button click to get this data into access.

Thanks for reading my post.

Hi everyone!

I'm sure this is probably something very simple that I'm missing...

I am creating a document template for a specific document type.

I have two rich text controls added to a document via the developer tab.

The first is the document's number in a series of documents to be created. The second is the actual document title.

In the footer area, I want these to be shown in reverse - i.e. the document name, then the document's number, so I am making it very easy to check the number of the document when flicking through a physical folder.

I tried to do this with bookmarks and cross-referencing, but the bookmarks are not saved when you create a new document based on that template.

I tried with a macro, but after recording the macro, it didn't really do what I wanted.

Is there an easy way to get this working? If not, is there a way I can assign names to the rich text controls in my template to run a macro more efficiently?

Is there a way in Access to have a report with data like BB900, 10/1/2006 behind a barcode? Then have a form with two columns. The user would scan barcode.

As I stated in my previous post, I'm creating a survey to send out in Word 2003 using text form fields and check box form fields. When typing comments in the text form fields, if the comments go above a certain word count, it is impossible to see what you are typing.

As it appears there is no way to make these text form fields scrollable, it is possible to make the text form field expandable when typing in it?

Currently when I type enough characters in the box the next text form box moves to the next tab location. How can I make each box "freeze" where it is before I start typing in it? Any Suggestions?

Embed the form field inside a frame. You can then set the frames border so that it is invisible so that it can't be seen.

I was in settings today and It gave me a message telling me I had to reset my settings because something or another was corrupt. I did so and most stuff works fine (Had to sign back into a bunch of stuff) but I do have one problem. Text fields no longer seem able to remember anything I've put into them. For example when trying to sign in here I usually just click the username box, "Bad-People" comes up and I click it to enter it automatically. But "Bad-People" doesn't come up anymore.
 
I figured resetting things just erased the history. That would have been fine but it also doesn't remember anything I enter new. So if I signed in here, then signed out, and then tried to sign in again "Bad-People" STILL wouldn't show up. This is a feature I use A LOT on a number of sites but it no longer works on any site I've tried.

We use Oracle's XML Publisher to generate reports. This is where an XML file is merged with a .rtf template to generate an output (usually PDF). We design our .rtf templates using Microsoft Word 2007. I have a need to print something in the same position on the last page of every report (in this case.. customer invoices). I am placing this logic in the footer so it will print in the same position. I also have logic in there that determines when it is the last page. It isn't working and I need some help. Right now I have { if {NUMPAGES}>{PAGE} "Not Last Page" "Last Page" }. I am getting "Last Page" on every page. (This isn't the wording that I really need to go there, I was just testing this functionality). I read an article from Microsoft Support (Article ID 211755) that says this is supposed to work with version 2000. I'm hoping it is still valid for 2007. If you have accomplished something like this or can help me I would appreciate it.

In Access I have a field "Age" which is formatted as text.

I import a txt file from Excel where the Age data contains some ages and some txt such as "Staff".

7
11
Staff
24

etc.

How can I force the ages to have a leading zero so that they appear in sequence in reports?

I know if I format the Age field as Number they appear correctly sorted in reports, but then I can't use text as well in that field.

Thanks for your help,

Answer:Importing txt file into Access text field with leading zeros

It might be simpler to modify the input data from Excel, so they are correct, or perhaps a little bit of vba code might be useful to whip through that field's data to modify those records which have a number to have leading zeros.

Hi,

I am currently using Word 2003 and have created a template. Within the template are text fields. My current issue is that if I make a change to formatting in one of the text fields, it replicates to all of the text fields. To give an example in the screen shot if I enter text then change the formatting under Point 1 (Project Statement) that change remains with that text field. If I go down to the next form field, and before entering any text, make formatting changes, that replicates to all of the form fields below. Similarly if text is entered first, then a formatting change made i.e. bullet point, that then seems to replicate through to the rest of the text fields. Can someone please explain as to why this is happening? thanks.

Hi,

For a 'Yes/No' data type, my MS Access 2013 does not allow me to change from the default 'check box' to the 'text box' option under lookup field properties - display control. It was originally able to but I think something has happened to it.

The problem is not table or database specific as I have tried other tables and databases. I even reinstalled MS Access to make sure it was not the application's fault. It still exists and I don't know what went wrong.
Could someone please advise?

One searches omegle in google but doesn't open it, the other goes to rcc.edu. It also sometimes enters the same piece of my Skype history into the text field. This piece of skype history shouldn't be on this computer since the logs are from a few months back, thus left on the old computer.

Hey there, long time reader first time poster!

(If you know of a great advanced tutorial on Access, please let me know. I know how to set up the basics, now I'd like to know how the program really runs)

I'm currently working on a form that allows users to search for equipment. The category of the equipment is slectable through a combo box, and the searched text is entered in a text field. The results are displayed in a list box.

What've I've tried is using a 'Find' button to enter this sql query into the RowSource of the list box:

Private Sub Equipment_Find_Click()

Me.Equipment_List.RowSource = "SELECT Equipment.Type, Equipment.Manufacturer, Equipment.Model FROM Equipment WHERE (((Equipment." & strQuote & Me.Equipment_Search_Category.Column(0) & strQuote & ")=" & strQuote & Me.Equipment_Find_Text & strQuote & "))ORDER BY Equipment.Type DESC;"

End Sub

The result i get is a pop up window with a text field. If i re-enter the text in that feild the info pops up nicely. What am I doing wrong, and how do i get rid of that popup?

Hey folks. This may sound like a minor problem but give it a read please. I noticed that when I happen to hold my left mouse button down on the desktop and slide it all the way up to the upper left hand corner of the desktop, then a two symbol wide invisible textfield is highlighted (see attached image "bluethingy").

I recall that having come across this anomally in the past that it occorred in conjunction with some malware but remember no details. There is something slowing down my computer at the moment but none of the malware seeking programs (ive gone through the list that majorgeeks recommend) that I have run has taken care of the lag, or this blue thingy. Does anybody have any insight into this blue thingy? Ill send the hijack this file if anyones interested, but am mostly curious about the blue field.

*** Curious about another thing: When visiting websites (using IE) with textfields for me to enter text, in some phases of my computers life the cursor when in this field blinks like a mad dog. This usually lets me know that theres some malware doing its thing and that its time for me to clean up a little. My question is if you have seen this happen: What kind of malware is doing it or where does it reside? - is it a helper? - is it unrelated to IE? Or is it not malware at all and just annoying?

We want to be able to put a check in a box and have that line print as well as the text box that accompanies the topic if there is information in the text box. If a topic is not checked or if a text box is not used we do not want it to print out.

I am experiencing an erratic text insertion point.
When using MS Word, WordPress, or other typing endeavors, the text insertion point jumps around while typing.
The result is;

1) what I type is inserted into text that is already written,
2) text is placed elsewhere on the page, or
3) written text is erased --- this may be a few words or a whole paragraph.
Typing is like playing a game --- can you type and watch where the words are placed or erased and still finish a sentance.

Afternoon,

I'm having trouble extracting text from the middle of a text string using Excel.

I've been searching around and there are a few ways this can be done however most really on using a function to search for the text after a specific letter or seperator.
For example singling out the middle initial of a name:

Jeffery J. Skilling
John D Doe

In Column B the First Name will be extracted using the following formula
=LEFT(A2,SEARCH(" ",A2,1)-1)

in Column C the Middle Initial will be extracted. for middle init use this formula
MID(A2,SEARCH(" ",A2,1)+1,1)
My problem is that i can't single out anything to search by to be able to define what needs to be extracted.

Below is a list containing some of the items from my list. As you can see they differ in number of characters and have multiple dashes "-". What formula/process can i use to extract the bold numbers from each of the text strings. I have about 27000 lines to process!

200-CP-57535-B
150-CL-3871-S
200-DMW-57135-B3
250-CL-57133-B3
80-SW-18363-X1
80-DO-57101-B

Once again your help is always greatly appreciated!
 

Answer:Solved: Excel: Extract text from the middle of a text string - Difficult

"multiple dashes": agreed, but in your sample all items have the same number of multiple dashes -- 3.

If that's a given, just use Data > Text to Columns with "-" as delimiter. Then delete fields 1, 2 & 4 from the results since it seems that "section" 3 is always the bold stuff.

HTH, if not post back.

hi DonnaR,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
When you highlight the text, are you doing a double tap & hold then drag to highlight the text or click & hold then drag on the touchpad to highlight? 
 
If it's the former then tapping might be disabled. Ensure that the Touchpad driver is installed and the tapping feature is enabled.

When I returned to my saved document, the mouse wouldn't work at all. I cannot edit or highlight any of the text! I've never had this problem before.

Answer:Created a text doc in Word 2007. Mouse can't edit text

Close the document (and the Word application) then re-open them.If no change, restart Windows and try again.It will probably be nothing more than a "glitch".There's no need to post the same problem twice in less than 10 minutes! Be patient and wait for a reply - it may take several hours.

For instance, if I highlight a word in a text-entry field, it's a very bright blue. This is also true in Firefox, Thunderbird, Word, OneNote, various fora, etc. but not in Excel.

Prior to installing Windows 10, the highlight in a text-entry field was either pale grey (on dark backgrounds) or darker grey (on light backgrounds), which is what I'd like to have back.

Any ideas?

User has text boxes within cells of a table in Word 2003. Originally files were created in Word 97.

Copies text boxes into another existing file and the text changes size and will not fully show inside text box ie. it is chopped off. If copies text boxes into a brand new document, the paste is fine, all sizes correct.

When doing the paste, smart tag option of keep source formatting is selected but this seems to make no difference.

Any ideas?

Since you copy into an existing file, have you tried to enlarge the text area into which you copy in the existing file - try doing it before you copy into the text box if that is possible.

Many times in the past when I would type plain text into cells of an Excel spreadhseet, I noticed that at point, the contents of a cell would turn into sharp signs (i.e. ####################). I did not know what triggered this, but I did notice that if I change the cell type from Text to General, the cell's text would come back to normal.

Today I had this happened again, and I was determined to find out what caused it. As it turns out, if you have a Text-formatted type cell and you type more than 255 characters in it, all the cell's contents will turn into sharp signs. In order to revert to the text you must either change the cell's format to General or truncate the text manually to a maximum of 255 characters.

The problem with formatting cells as General in a text-only spreadsheet is that you cannot use characters that make Excel think you are typing a formula; that is, you cannot use hyphens or "keywords" such as "not", etc, without prefixing them with a '. This is why I normally format all cells as Text when I know I will only type text in a certain spreadsheet.

Has anyone else noticed this, and is there a solution to have more than 255 characters in a cell without having to change its type to General? Thanks for any help.
 

Answer:Excel: Text in Text-formatted cells changes to ### after the 255th character

You might want to read this:
http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/excel/HP051992911033.aspx
- in general, 1024 characters is the maximum allowable in a cell, but, as you have noticed, at 255 characters they are no longer displayed in the cell normally, but you can enter 32,767 characters in total, but after 255 characters they can only be read in the formula bar.
Also, if your cell only contains numeric data, then changing the format to General will leave you with information using scientific notation.
Alas, spreadsheets are spreadsheets and not word processors.

Ok this is wierd I have a client using Office 2007 pro and some of her docs that she recently updated and the problem is when she prints the docs text that she deleted is printing over the top of new text she inserted into the doc.

Now when you have said doc open in WORD the deleted text is not there in any view and does NOT show in "print preview".

I opened said doc with WORDPAD and the deleted text shows up at the bottom so its still in the word doc somewhere imbedded so it prints over the top of the actual text in the doc.

Any thoughts this has me baffled.

Answer:Office 2007 Word printing deleted text over new text

First thought which comes to mind is, has your client pressed "hide" instead of "Delete"...

How do I find and remove hidden data and personal information in my Office documents?

You can use the Document Inspector to find and remove hidden data and personal information in Office documents that were created in Office Word 2007, Office Excel 2007, Office PowerPoint 2007, and earlier versions of these Office programs. It is a good idea to use the Document Inspector before you share an electronic copy of your Office document, such as in an e-mail attachment.
Open the Office document that you want to inspect for hidden data or personal information.
Click the Microsoft Office Button, click Save As, and then type a name in the File name box to save a copy of your original document.
Important It is a good idea to use the Document Inspector on a copy of your original document because it is not always possible to restore the data that the Document Inspector removes.
In the copy of your original document, click the Microsoft Office Button, point to Prepare, and then click Inspect Document.
In the Document Inspector dialog box, select the check boxes to choose the types of hidden content that you want to be inspected. For more information about the individual Inspectors, see What information can the Document Inspector find and re... Read more

Saw certain words start popping up as keywords tonight. First, I ran an MBAM scan which found nothing. I ran AdwCleaner a little while ago and it seemed to remove the Kerata (or something similar) part of the links. Strangely, I didn't get a log pop-up from AdwCleaner after the reboot. Enhanced-Text is still popping up. I created a new Google Chrome user profile, and the links had temporarily stopped appearing until I installed an extension. (AdBlock on this case) Help!

I have already disabled my CD Emulation Drives with DeFogger. I also have the attach.txt from the DDS scan if required.

Text files were created within excel by concatenating cells in each row. Each row became a text file. The contents of the text file are the contents of an html file. After the text file is created I change the file extension of the text file to html.

I need a mass replace text editor so I can replace the word (paramark) in the txt file (to be renamed as an html file) with a real paragraph mark that shows as a paragraph mark in Front Page.

The problem with doing what I am doing is when all the cells are concatenated in Excel, all the html contents end up on one line rather than having paragraphs separate the html lines.

Example: The Way The HTML Code Should Be
Code:
<html>
<head>
<title>Memory Master Bible Memory Program - NIV - 1 Peter 4:9</title>
<meta name="Microsoft Border" content="tlb, default">
</head>

Example: The Way The HTML Code Turns Out After Using Excel To Create The File

Code:
<html><head><title>Memory Master Bible Memory Program - NIV - 1 Peter 4:9</title><meta name="Microsoft Border" content="tlb, default"></head>
I can place text to be replaced (paramark) next to each paragraph mark so if I can find a text editor to mass replace a real paragraph mark in place of the word (paramark) my problem is solved.

I have four thousand files to process so I need to do a mass replace across files.

Thank you in advance for any replies.

I have created a document in MS Word 2010 that has a textbox with a background color. When I print the document to my printer (have tried multiple printers) or print to PDF, the textbox prints but the text itself does not print. (see attached image)

Upon further investigation of the PDF, I found that the text is actually layered below the textbox. For some reason, Word is printing the textbox on top of the text itself.

When I take the textbox, copy it to a new document, and try to print, it prints correctly.

I have also checked my printing preferences and I believe all the settings are correct.

Does anybody know how to fix this?

It's astounding to me that you remove so many buttons that most users rely on regularly, and then don't provide any obvious instructions or tutorials on how to use all this functionality. So I'm trying to do something incredibly simply with buttons -- select some text to copy or paste or cut. I'm using Windows 7 on a t440s. Apparently the only way to do this -- unreliably -- is to hold the trackpad down (press it all the way in -- not easy to do with one finger!), and try and get the whole thing you need to select in one swoop. If you've mis-positioned your finger on the trackpad to begin the operation, though, you'll run out of space before you get to the edge of the trackpad. And then you need to start over. And keep trying to do it, until you get it. So now an incredibly simple action I did a dozen times a day before the t440s has become nearly impossible. The 3 times I've tried to do it so far, it's taken me a half dozen times each time. It's not gotten easier. Which makes me believe I'm missing something here... So what's the easiest way to select some text on a page, and quickly copy it? If I get find a simple way to do this, sadly, this laptop might be going back. I can't believe this trend to remove the trackpad buttons amongst manufacturers. If I wanted to buy a Mac, I would've bought a Mac. 

Answer:How do I reliably select text or highlight text with t440s trackpad?

You can start by selecting a small portion of text, then release the clickpad, then hold down a Shift key and single-click at the end of the text to be selected -- the selection will expand to encompass the whole text segment ending at your last click.If you prefer tapping to clicking, in most apps you can start by double-tapping on a word (word gets selected) then use Shift in the same way as above, ending with a single-tap.

I just enabled these, and my fonts in a few places have changed.

I know it's rather minor, but the main issue of change has been in IRC-ish HTML chats, the font changed from basic arial to something I can't quite discern.

Descriptively, the pt size seems to be reduced about 80% (12 point is unnaturally small), _ is approximately half the width and > and < reaches to the maximums of a capital letter. " are diagonal slashes instead of vertical (and a bit elongated at that), the distance between the dots in the semi/colon are minor at best.

What brought this on was simply the addition of support for East Asian and Right to Left languages, and applies globally to all browsers.

Any way to fix this?

I am making a database that imports data from excel files. However, those files are not originally from excel. So, I have to pull data about once a week from a system that saves the files to a format that excel can read, but Access doesn't want to read because it is not in the xml format. I have to convert the data to excel (easy as opening the file in excel and saving it as an xml). I then go into the worksheet and have to change the first row, because it contains repeating data and they need to be unique fields of course. The first row is used as the header information. The first 10 columns A1 -J1 are fine as the data is unique in each. K1 is where the issue begins. K1 contains a year and other text. The following 13 columns L1:X1 contain other text without the year from K1. This repeats at Y1 having a year and the following 13 columns not having a year but having the same text as L1:X1. I need to take the year from K1 (the year will be the first four characters) and insert that year as text into the next 13 columns (as the beginning text of the cell) so they become unique. This needs to happen about 20 times, 2015 - 2035. This is tedious at best doing it by hand, but I have to do it for every piece of data I pull. I could do it by hand once and then copy and paste it into all of the new worksheets, however I'd prefer to have a macro I could run to do this.Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Answer:Excel 2010: Cell contains specific text, insert that text...

Try this. The code is written for the K1, L1:X1 situation. Expand/modify it to extend across all of your other ranges. As written, it inserts the first 4 characters from K1 and a space at the beginning of L1:K1.
Sub AddYear()
'Loop through Range
For Each myCell In Range("L1:X1")
'Insert first 4 characters from K1
Range(myCell.Address) = Left(Range("K1"), 4) & " " & myCell
Next

Optical character recognition (OCR) software has been around for a long time. But for the most part, it's still cumbersome and expensive. If you only occasionally need to turn an image of text into the real thing, there's no point in buying it. So here are two simple OCR solutions that won't make you go through a complex installation or pull out your credit card.

I've tried dozens of programs. I've websearched for hours. I now come to you on bended knees. First problem: I want to be able to set a hotkey, that inserts a pre-defined line of text into any text editor. I want to do a bunch of different ones. Say, ALT+SHIFT+D = [email protected], and ALT+SHIFT+C = I love you too, honey. I want to be able to do this so I don't have to get carpal tunnel typing in the exact same same word or phrase hundreds of times a week. I couldn't find a program that worked like this, or I couldn't figure out how to make it work (like AutoHotKey... I read the first page of their tutorial three times and each time I needed an aspirin afterwards), because I am not a propeller head and thus incapable of wrapping my mind around any language that isn't the king's English. Second problem: I want to be able to copy plain text and paste as plain text, but I do not want to CTRL+ALT+SHIFT+C or WINDOWS+V. [<Removed link by Moderator - ETAF> I just want to CTRL+C, CTRL+V like I've done my entire life. Like I've said, I tried a bunch of them, and the few that let you choose the hotkey, for some unfathomable reason pout and stick their noses in the air when you ask them politely to set it to CTRL+C or CTRL+V. Thank you and have a great week!
