i tried to attach but the net is weak enough to upload and thats why duplicate. I will write what the two boxes show:

first one: says: u cant close the Microsoft office box because a dialogue box is open. click ok, switch to word, and then close the dialogue box.

second one: says: which is behind the first box: word has encountered a problem.

and nothing worked.

I have a word document that includes a form the user must fill in. I want to create a button that will do all of the following:
1. Update all fields
2. Attach the updated word document to an email
3. Enter an address I have stored in the macro into the To field of the email.

I have one module which does the first part:
Sub CommandButton1_Click()
Dim oStory As Range
For Each oStory In ActiveDocument.StoryRanges
oStory.Fields.Update
If oStory.StoryType <> wdMainTextStory Then
While Not (oStory.NextStoryRange Is Nothing)
Set oStory = oStory.NextStoryRange
oStory.Fields.Update
Wend
End If
Next oStory
Set oStory = Nothing
End Sub

I found that if I add this to the before End Sub it attaches the updated Word document to an email:
Application.Options.SendMailAttach = True 'Or False
ActiveDocument.SendMail

However, I can't figure out how have it put a specific address into the To field of the document.

So I tried another tact. I have the email address as a hyperlink in the document, and set a bookmark at the hyperlink. Then I created a module that will go to the bookmark and open the hyperlink. However, this will not add the document as an attachment:

Sub Open_Hyperlink()
Selection.GoTo What:=wdGoToBookmark, Name:="hyperlink"
With ActiveDocument.Bookmarks
.DefaultSorting = wdSortByName
.ShowHidden = False
End With

Selection.Range.Hyperlinks(1).Follow NewWindow:=False, AddHistory:=True

I have been told that one cannot just attach your resume that is in Word to my Yahoo email. Told it isn't viewed properly. Am told there is a way to do it but can't get anyone to tell me how nor can I find where to get the info. I only know computer basics.

Thanks,

Answer:How to attach Resume in Word to Yahoo email so it is viewed correctly.

If you attach it in attachments and it will be sent by Yahoo! email.

How it would be shown depends on where you sent it and how the receiver opens email (using email clients, web mail and then what kind of web mail). In most email clients and email websites it would be shown as an attachment and wont be opened unless you click on it. While other email websites like GMail would give you an option to view it as html, view using google documents or download.

So it all depends who opens your email and how.

Hi,

I am developing an add-in for outlook that consists of creating a customized send button next to the standard one. when outlook is configured to use the word editor, when I add the customized send button to the command bar of the mail in edit mode, the add-in is also added in word document. The reason is that the word editor is activated in outlook. How can I tell my add-in not to add the button in word as well. I don't want to deactivate the editor word. There must be a way how to detect the opened application. I searched for my problem on the internet and people said to test if the kind of the document is word mail or word document. Here's part of my code that didn't work correctly:


//event triggered when item is opened

private void Inspectors_NewInspector(Outlook.Inspector i)

{

//some code to test if it is a maiitem, etc.



Word.Document document = (Word.Document)i.WordEditor;





if (document.Kind.ToString() == "wdDocumentEmail")

addsendbutton();

}

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



I have 2 options in mind:



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

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

I am trying to attach an xml file to a Microsoft Word document.
I would normally attach a file by selecting Insert > Object, then browsing to the file I want to attach. This works in that it attaches the file I want but when I double click the icon that is created, Internet Explorer opens up and says it cannot display the webpage. The xml file I am trying to attach and open is a chat log from Messenger Live.

Does anybody have any suggestions as to why this keeps happening?

By the way, im aware that the xml chat log references an xsl file, I have removed this reference so at the very least when I click the attachment it should open Internet Explorer and display the file unformatted.

Thank you in advance.

If you are using OE then type the sentence the way you wish it to read and then highlight the word you want to appear as a hyperlink. Once highlighted select the insert tab up top of the E-mail and select Hyperlink. Type your URL in there and click OK.
There are other options such as Mailto and so on.

In Firefox, when I click a picture and try to save, it does not crash when the folder navigation pops up -- but if I try to change the folder, thats when it will crash.Also, sometimes, when attaching files, like in gmail or this forum, it will crash as well.I feel I should note, I recently had the google redirect virus three times...I guess it never fully cleared.

Hi guys! I've been sent a word doc. via email and when I open the attachment or save, I can only see boxes! It's in Russian Cryllic language.

I have Word 2000 and run XP Pro.

I've also tried downloading service pack 3 from microsoft, as I'm always prompted to on start-up, but it always keeps asking for me to insert the Office disk with Frontpage... I never got a disk when I bought my computer.

I've saved the emailed 'boxed' Word Doc. and was wondering if I forwarded it to anyone in Russia, if they'd understand it.

Any help would be appreciated... From this Dumb Aussie Chick.
 

Answer:Russian Word doc. is all boxes!

Other people may correct me but it sounds like you don't have the font installed (also why it is asking for the disc, it wants to install it for you).

Your PC is displaying square boxes for Russian characters where it doesn't know what they look like.

I'd either email the person that sent it over and ask them to change the font to something you have, ask them to send you the font (last time I looked they were small individual files) or you may be able to find it by Googling the name of the font.

My only other question. If it's in Russian, can you read it anyway? No point in getting it to display correctly if you can't read the language.

Good Luck.

Hi
When I format a table cell in Word 2007 to show the Marlett font, a little square appears - even in a blank cell. If I then enter the 'a' character on my keyboard, in order to create a 'tick' mark in Marlett, the tick mark appears as expected but the unwanted square remains.

I have read elsewhere that the square is caused by the end of cell marker formatting symbol or by the end of row marker (both normally hidden) but I am unable to get rid of it. Nothing I do seems to remove it. Surely there must be a way to use Marlett font in a table cell. Can anyone offer a solution?

I?ve just come up against a little niggle with MS-Word 2010.
I decided to make a Tenancy Agreement Form for my neighbour. He was really chuffed with my efforts,,, until he tried to type into the boxes.
He could only type into the first box at the top of the page, but not the others.
It looks like I only made ?boxes? on the form, instead of ?TEXT boxes?. ?No probs? thought I. I?ll just replace ?em all with said text ones.
For some reason, I can?t seem to replace the rest of the boxes (about a dozen) with text ones.
I deleted the second box, and tried to copy/paste the first one,,,, but that wouldn?t take. So I tried to Insert another text box, but that won?t take either.
I?ve used Word for many years, but havn?t come across this before.
Any ideas what I?m doing wrong please ?

Answer:Text boxes in MS-Word 2010

I only have Word 2003 but using the "Forms" toolbar and creating a Form might be the way to go. You then create the fields into which data can be added and the rest of the document is "locked" so that it cannot be altered. A password can be used to prevent the form from being unlocked again from the Forms toolbar.

Using MS Word 2000.  If I group 2 or more text boxes together, the contents of those text boxes do not print.  This happens if I group the text box with an image also.  Particular image in question is in WMF format when inserted.One of the text boxes is a black fill with white lettering.  It prints all black when grouped with another text box that is no fill with black lettering.Actual document I am working with is one of the default templates accessible via....File - New - Publications - BrochureOn top page far right column, I deleted the default image and text.  Added 2 images (Company logo and another clipart image)  Two Text boxes as described above.  One (black fill) simply has phone number in it sized at 20pt, the other (no fill) has the web address.  The one with the web address slightly overlaps on top of the one with the phone number.  The text doesn't overlap, just the lower tip of the box for formating purposes.Again, when I group these two boxes or I group them with the images above them, it will not print the text, just the images.When doing a print preview, it shows the text like it should print it just fine.  Any help in solving this issue is appreciated.

Tried opening in WordPad or Notepad but no joy, also tried Word's recovery options......Any ideas? I can't help feeling the text is somewhere under all those square boxes. Really don't want to have to type all that in again   (can't remember it for a start). Please help!thanks so much x

Answer:Word - text turned into square boxes

What happens if you cut all the text and paste it into Wordpad?Sometimes font errors will self-correct after a reboot.  Have you tried that?

Whether it is an exisiting document or a new document opened in word tiny boxes appear on the worksheet which will not turn off.
Originally I thought they may have been just gridlines but when you toggle the hide/show gridlines more lines just show up or disappear leaving the original lines (Boxes) intact.
I have never seen anything like this before and am stumped.

Hello.

I was trying to configure Word 2000 to send email, but I can't seem to find the means to configure the bloody thing. I have tried help files, but wasn't much help.

Anybody plz?

Thanks.
 

Answer:Microsoft Word 2000 aka MS Word 2000 - Sending Email - Need Help Configuring

Word itself does not send (or receive) e-mail messages. You may configure Word to be your e-mail editor, but it still requires an e-mail program (such as MS Outlook) to send messages.

You can send e-mails from within Word by using File, Send To, Mail Recipient (or Mail Recipient as Attachment), but this still uses Outlook to do the sending and receiving.

I'm hoping someone has some insight into this, as my web searches are coming up empty. I am trying to create a template in Word 2010 that will consist of a series of text boxes that can be filled in. I have set up the typical size of each text box and aligned them. I have also set the properties (shape properties) of each text box so that it will grow if the text entered is larger than the size I have set up. In Format properties position, I have unchecked Allow Overlap, hoping that as a text box grows, the boxes under it would move down the page. Once, this actually happened but I have not had consistent luck with it. I have experimented with all the options, including move with text, etc. but nothing works. I would appreciate any help with this issue.

Hi

I have a word document with a table on it, some of cells are shaded different levels of Gray with text over the top and this prints fine.

I haven't seen the original doc, but a colleague edited the table and it all looks fine on the screen and fine on print preview, but when the document is printed 5 of the boxes just print out completely blank???

I can't for the life of me figured it out?

I have checked table > borders and shading and on the 5 cells in question the settings match all the other cells that print ok

If I add a text box over the cells and type something then this shows on the printout, but I need the text physically in the table

Any suggestions???

Well i did a big report on my computer with Word Perfect i couldnt print it so i took to school on my flash drive. IN my first class i edited it on Word 2007 and in the class i could print it they had Word 2003 and i couldnt open my file and now i cant even open it in word perfect.

Answer:Solved: Word Perfect- Word 2003 - word 2007

If you saved the file in the "new" Word 2007 format (with a file extension of .docx) then you will be unable to open it in the other applications.

For Word 2003 you can install a converter, but I know of no XLM converter for WordPerfect.

When using Word 2007 you need to "save as" Word 97-2003 format to retain backwards compatibility.

I have this form that I made on my 97-03 version of Word. I had inserted check boxes (that work when you click on them) and fields where you can enter information. In the old version of word, there was this protection button that looked like a lock and you can click it to protect the document in which case it would only be useable in the fields where you can type and the check boxes.

Hey folks,
I have a document with almost 40 pictures, each of which has a caption in a text box grouped with the picture. Today I opened up my document to discover that for every single one of these, the numbers of the captions were missing, i.e. "Picture 2: A potato" became "Picture : A potato".
I should make it clear that the fields are still there:

By right-clicking just before the colon, I get "Update field", "edit field", and "Toggle field codes" as options, and when I go into "edit field" the field code appears correct;
All cross-references in the document referring to these captions have their numbers intact, even after manual updating;
Adding a new caption to the end of the document comes up as it should, "Picture 39"
Copying and pasting "Picture :" into a different place in the document causes the number to reappear, so long as it's not being pasted into one of the affected text boxes;
Hitting Alt+F9 (after the text box has been ungrouped from the accompanying picture, of course) doesn't give me the field codes, however: those, too, are invisible. New fields of any type that are added to the affected text boxes are also invisible. Field codes added to new text boxes are, however, perfectly fine.
Now, I could obviously separate each of the text boxes from its picture, create new captions in new text boxes under each picture, and manually copy-paste the text of each caption int... Read more

Greetings all. I have a slight problem with one of our employee's computers. When they go to open a file using Word 2002 (XP) they do not see images in documents, instead it is simply a white box with a black outline. We know this is not a problem with the document as the images are visible on my own machine, 2003, and an older version of Word, 2000.

Also what is weird with this, is that when the person prints the document the image is visible on the document.

I've found nothing on Microsofts website regarding this matter.

I have been emailed a job application form which I need to get back to the employer ASAP. But I don't have a printer. Filling in lines and text boxes is not a problem but there are the usual page of (non)equal opportunitites c**p to fill, with a hoard of tick boxes.

I think the form designer has used emtpty square symbol from Wingdings or something similar - I don't think they are bullets because of their position on paper.

The only option I can think of is to create a right size square in image editing program and draw X into it, but it is harldly desirable, not just because it is usually still obvious and in tight spaces tends to knock other things out of alingnment (I'm not applying a job in IT or office rat, my skills in word are nowhere nearly that good).

Obviously it would be preferable to find a solution that would work with all forms with same scenario. Oh, and I have opened the document in Word 2000.

- - -
Last time I filled in an emailed form, it turned out they were, forgot the name so please enlighten me, editable yes/no boxes (although just looking at them you wouldn't know it.) Not elegant solution but I found one that worked, even if it was a bit tedious.

(In case someone else comes looking for similar solution, this is how I did it, if I remeber it right: highlight, left click and a dialogue box will appear: choose ticked as the default option and close. You should now see the box ticked, usually with X )
 

Answer:Help! Filling a job application form (again): editing tick boxes in Word

Correction to my comment about the editable yes/no boxes (control boxes?)

On PAPER there is no difference but on COMPUTER you can see them with a grey background. To edit the tick box I do the following:

Please note: I have already set the defaul email program to Outlook (tools, internet options, programs etc) and this does not solve the problem.

I have a Word template which was created when I had Outlook Express installed. When I open the template (or create a new document from the template), Word opens with the Outlook Express email "from, to, cc and bcc" fields displayed.

When I press the "send" button (inside word), the email is sent successfully by Outlook Express, not by my default email program, Outlook.

This happens even though I have now uninstalled Outlook Express (control panel, windows omponenents etc). Yes, that is correct. I have uninstalled Outlook Express, but when I press send, the outlook express "send" window still pops up.

How do I modify this template so that the email is sent via Outlook and not Outlook Express?

If I recreate the template (a pain) the email is sent correctly through Outlook, but the document does not open up with the email fields displayed...is there a way to do this?

I am using office 2002 (all lates updates are installed) and have uninstalled Outlook Express!!!

Answer:Word keeps converting email

Word doesn't "convert" without being asked to. Open Word. Hit the File-->Open menu. At the bottom, does it say "recover text from any file"? Make sure it says "All documents". If it doesn't say "recover...", then go to Tools-->Options, Save tab. Make sure Word isn't set to save as some other file type. Make sure it says Word (your version) document. If your DOC files are opening in WordPad INSTEAD of Word, then it's a file association problem. See: http://www.officearticles.com/misc/files_dont_open_when_double-clicked_in_microsoft_office.htm

Answer:Email And Word Problem In Xp

I don't understand completely Is one machine hooked up to the net with a NIC card/LAN connection, then it has a 2nd NIC card and cross-over cable to the other machine? Which machine is hooked up to the provider's modem? This is where I get confused:
"I had both computers booted up and removed the network cable and everthing worke fine. i left the cable unplugged and rebooted the xp machine and it seemed to work fine then."

You left the network cable unplugged and it worked. How is this possible with no connection?

Hello all,

does anyone know how to save custom stationery in word 2000 for use with create new mail in outlook 2000?

At the moment I am using word 2000 as my email editor for html.

I created a custom background and header but everytime I click new message in outlook, I get only the default stationery in word and have to waste time swtiching and re-adjusting to my custom design.
I tried looking in the folders for MS Office under program files but cannot locate any folder or file that is relative to the stationery sets used by word. I thought I could add the name of a doc file to such a folder if it existed and then choose it from the list of available stationery in word.

Also, when I email my clients directly from word by clicking on "File>send to > mail recipient" i get the last email recipient subject and attachment fields" instead of ready fields,,,that is to, subject and attachment fields that are empty for new recipient info.

One of these days I worry I may inadvertently send the wrong email to the wrong person.

To summarize:
I would like to create custom stationery that will open in word when sending new mail using word 2000.
I would like, if i have to send a document straight from word, to not have to clear the fields of the previous recipient.

Many thanks for your replies and input,
Darren

I use Office XP with Win XP with Outlook express on my desktop. This suits me as I can use the email recipient function to send a copy of a word doc as it appears on the screen

I had the same setup on my laptop but since changing to windows 7 the send to recipient icon is grayed out.
I recently changed my email client on the laptop to Thunderbird.

I would like to use the send to recipient but have read that some files have been not been included in windows 7.

Please can anyone help me to resolve my problem?

My wife is entering a writing contest and the instruction state that she has to include the first 30 pages in the body of the email and not as an attachment. However, when I do a copy and paste from Word 2003 to Outlook 2003, the headers don't transfer to the email. Also some of the spacing goes from double to single, just a few 4-8 lines here and there. I don't have any hair left, pulled it all out .:crybaby
 

Answer:email MS Word with headers

Hi

Just a thought, first off save a duplicate of the Word Doc but use Save as and save it as a HTML file, Open Outlook and start a new message but click on the New Email window the menu Format and make sure HTML is chosen.

Then open the newly saves HTML version of the doc, copy paste it in the message body, should keep formatting ok.



*not tested this as I normally like to do before suggesting as the PC on now doesnt have Outlook installed.

You can only copy the text from a word doc into an outlook express email. You could attach the word doc though.
