Text field and restore problems

Question: Text field and restore problems

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 mentioned above, so I went to restore it to a point before we moved, only to find that my system restore calendar doesn't show up, so I can't see any restore points to restore to. System restore has been turned on all along,I already verified that it was on and the amount of memory allowed to system restore was already set to the max allowed. That is when I looked into setting a restore point manually to see if it would make the calendar show up, but of course I can't set one because it won't set one unless you name it and I can't type in the text field to name it because of whatever the above problem is. (I already fixed the sound issue)

The computer has not been hooked to the internet until the past week, AFTER I discovered the problems, when I hooked it up so I could download replacement sound driver files, etc, to try to fix these problems, so I think it's safe to say it's not a virus of any kind. Any ideas??

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!

How do I get Firefox to remember something typed into a specific field? This text box pops up after I select 'Merchant Accept Liability' from the dropdown menu. I have to type 'We accept liability' into the text box at least 200 times a day. If there was some way for Firefox to remember this, it'd be extremely convenient. Attached screenshot.

One of the best rated form fillers is Roboform. It works in Firefox and IE.

Quality Artificial Intelligence
RoboForm is really smart in filling in forms; it is the most precise form filler on the market. We use Artificial Intelligence techniques to achieve this kind of precision and we test RoboForm thoroughly.

Selective Form Filling
You can ask RoboForm to fill just a part of your form, rather than the complete form. Simply select (highlight) the fields that you want RoboForm to fill and click any form filling button -- only the selected fields will be filled.




You could also try one of these Firefox addons:

Fireform

iMacros

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.

I have a table consisting of 8 columns by 26 rows. In each cell, I'm adding a Text Form Field. Is there anyway, besides doing it cell by cell, where I can just copy a row, then paste the same Text Form Field with text length maximums in the other 25 rows?
 

Answer:Word - Text Form Field

Sure, Brian.
Create first row.
In Print Layout view, take your mouse pointer to the left of the left-most cell in the row, and it should turn into a 1:00 pointing arrow. Click to select the whole row, then Ctrl+C to copy. Place your cursor in front of the paragraph return just below the table OR in the left-most cell of the row that you want a new row above, and hit Paste.

Hi,

Help, I am a novice at Access 2010 and am attempting to write a custom [COLOR=green !important][COLOR=green !important]database[/COLOR][/COLOR] from scratch.
How do I get data from multiple text fields to show up combined in a seperate text field. I want to combine the First, Middle Initial, and Last Name fields so they will be combined in a seperate field I named Complete Name.

I typed the following into the Validation Rule of the Property section for the Complete Name text field however, the Complete Name text field remains blank in Form as well as Table.

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.

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?

I have an excel file with a column with values like 100, 200, 500, 500-02, and 500-04.
Access wants the column to be a number because 500-02 is not one of the first records.

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 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.

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?

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?

See Word Variables etc. Editor which will allow you to easily map content controls to achieve what you want to do.

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?

Thanks a lot.
 

Answer:MS Access 2013 Yes/No Lookup field properties can't select Text box

lycen, welcome to the Forum.
I am not sure how you managed to change it to a text field, as you can't do it in Access 2007, only to other types of "On/Off" type fields

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.

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.

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,
Ken
 

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.

Okay this one is a little freaky. I built a new PC recently and installed a fresh 8.1 . Few days later it starts randomly (maybe 1-2 per day, sometimes never) opening two new tabs.

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?

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?

Been perusing the "blurry text" threads, but my issue seems only to be present in the text rendering in MS-Edge/IE11, so I was wondering whether there's some setting to improve the HTML rendering in the MS browsers???

Text in everything else is crystal clear, but anything in a MS browser is rubbish (as can be seen here on the left - the text in the dialog on the right is fine - though that's now looking a bit less clear when viewing the image in the browser )
I've got the latest v1511(10586.11)

Answer:More Blurry text problems, but only text rendering in MS browsers

I see exactly the same in IE 11 and Edge vs. Firefox or Chrome - based browsers like Maxthon, Baidu etc. This is on desktop and laptop screens running at 100% native resolution.

The images in the above post show the problem clearly when opened and expanded to full size.

It's due to antialiased monochrome text in the MS browsers, rather than sub-pixel rendered text in the others. MS does it this way to allow rotation of screens like tablets, etc., with little change in appearance.

Did you try installing the latest patch for the game? There's been a few releases already, there's a good chance that the latest patch will fix it. Other than that, be sure you have the absolute latest drivers, sometimes when a new game comes out, companies release drivers that day, because they're optimized for certain game fixes.

I'm doing a quick-and-(very)dirty design as a proof of concept. During this process I fat-fingered the word Description, as Ddescription. No problem, I know what it means, right. But it annoyed me, so I changed the underlying table (where the error occurred), deleted the control from the form, and added the (now correctly spelled) control.

However, every time I try and ruin the form it wants a value for the now non-existent field Ddescription. I simpy click-through, and the form runs fine. When I look at the available fields in the form's View query's Field List, it still shows Ddescription, and i seems to think it's coming from the underlying table.

Any ideas on how I can remove this phantom field? I can't find anything called "The_View_for_form_FooBar" anywhere, but I know it must exist somewhere...

Answer:update field A in form based on entry in field b

Welcome to the forum, before answering you question can I suggest some improvements to your database.
Currently you do not have any "Key", "Indexed" fields in your tables and there are no relationships set up between the tables.
Also do you really need the Archive Table?
The data looks like it has been exported in from a spreadsheet, relational databases work quite differently to spreadsheets, so to make the most of their advantages you need to correctly relate your Tables.
Your UserID Roster also has some disconnect between the Field Names and the actual data in them, particularly the Name and Type feilds.
In the Supervisor Table the Birthdate does not seem to have Translated correctly.

I am working on a database that stores genus, species, and variety I want to sort the data with genus, then species, then variety.

Now the tricky part. Sometimes there is no species. When this is the case, I want the database to sort that record off of variety.

I have though of a way to do this, but need help with the code.

If I make a species2 field, I could create an expression that would look at the species field. If the species field is empty, it could copy the data from variety. If it is not empty, then copy the data in the species field.

Once the species2 field has the updated data, I could then do a sort

genus, species2, variety

The report would have genus, species and variety showing and species2 would be checked off to not show in the report.

I am using Microsoft Access 2000.

Any help would greatly be appreciated.
 

Answer:Access - if field is blank, copy field A, if not copy field B

You should not actually need another field to do this, just another column in your report's Query. Something like this as a Field header :-

dummySpecies: iif(isnull([species]), [genus], [species])

this should provide a column with the species in if it there and the genus if it is not, which you can use in place of your actual species field in the report for sorting.

1) First I went to the create the TOC, so I put {TOC \f C \o "1-1"}. I updated the fields and press Alt+F9 to hide the field codes and bring up the TOC. Now the TOC includes information that I have designated for Table B and Table D. In addition, it is showing levels 2 & 3 even though I have it designated to only show level 1 (i.e. \o "1-1").

2) The formatting only comes through for some of the fields that show up. Some bring through the formatting that I have for the headings in the document, but some just bring plain formatting. I have no idea why that is because I thought the formatting that is present when you Mark the text will be present in the TOC.

There was a garage text back up/restore app in the store a while back, but as you have upgraded before backing up I'm not sure if that would work.

Hi,
I've been using WP for a few years now and a great fan but one thing I've had a hard time is with restoring some text messages. Most of my single 1 user to 1 user messages just restore on their own and it's fine. However, any text messages with more than 1 person (group messaging), all messages are showing "Oops! The media content you're looking for isn't there anymore."
This is unusual because it has all the information about the message (who sent it, when they sent it, who else was part of the group, etc). I can understand if it was a picture that was sent and unable to restore but this is just text.
any ideas?

Answer:On my WP8.1, how do I restore text backup?

Even though it's just text, group messages are technically not SMS but MMS. That of course doesn't explain why they cannot be restored, but it explains the error you're seeing.

I am using a search function as described in thread click here. I have a keywords field and would like to search the whole field with the QBF function. Is there a way to do this as it will not recognise "art" in painting, art, drawing.Also can i search a number of fields at once with this Query By Form function?Thanks in advance.(If you have a script which is fairly large, just send it to me by email by clicking the envelope at the top).

Answer:Searching more than one field/any part of field.

Just a quick suggestion, have you tried to see if "%art%" will work in your search?The % is the wildcard character within SQL server, and may be simliar in access!R.

For some odd reason the text in several programs and applications has been changed from normal to italicized. Can someone assist me in returning to normal text. My efforts so far have been unsuccessful.

Answer:Need help to restore normal text from italics

It would help people to even start to have an idea of how they may help you if you list some helpful information such as which programs/applications are affected, what have you actually tried so far and have you installed any new software lately? Also please fill in your system specs by following the link in my signature.

Hi all! I was hoping someone might just take a look and comment on this for me. I have been 'googling' and browsed this site and can't find anything pertaining to this at all. I have a small (no pun intended) problem with the System Restore function.Here's the lowdown:On firing up the System Restore window, I click on the option to "Create a restore point" and click 'next.' When the window opens to give your restore point a description, the box to type in is absolutely tiny. If I were to guess the text size I'd say about 1 or 2, i.e. too small to read. Strange thing is, you can still type a name, click create and it will do so - perfectly. What do you guys think?I've run malware/virus scanners just in case but they come up clean as a whistle. I can't see any dodgy processes running so I really don't think it's a trojan etc. Could it just be a setting in WinXP that I need to adjust to increase the text size or something? Nothing else on my system seems affected. Just as a sidenote: the only thing I have installed recently; since last using Sys Restore; is an upgrade from IE6 to IE8. Could this have interferred with it in some way?I'd appreciate anyone's input. I'm not unduly worried at the moment as everything looks fine, but you know as well as I that looks can be deceiving! Perhaps there's a nasty I don't know about. Thanks to anyone who takes the time to read this post.Regards to all,Phsyc... Read more

Answer:System Restore Point Name - text box is tiny!

Hello, I have never seen anything like this. It looks as if a file is corrupt but I am not sure. Perhaps running System File Checker sfc /scannow may correct something.For more information on this tool see How To Use Sfc.exe To Repair System FilesNOTE for Vista users..The command needs to be run from an elevated Command Prompt.Click Start, type cmd into the Start/Search box,right-click cmd.exe in the list above and select 'Run as Administrator'You will need your operating system CD handy.Open Windows Task Manager....by pressing CTRL+SHIFT+ESCThen click File.. then New Task(Run)In the box that opens type sfc /scannow ......There is a space between c and /Click OKLet it run and insert the XP CD when asked.

Hi,

Forgive me if this is fairly vague, but I'm contacting you on behalf of my "silver surfer" uncle of 87!!

He's recently upgraded from 98 to XP.

His eyesight's not so good these days and he has to enlarge the standard text size. However, he changed text size but the setup he got was too large for his monitor and he now wants to change back to the standard size.
Unfortunately, he hasn't a clue how to do it!!

I'm still running 98, so don't know plus, I live over 250 miles away from him

If someone could post simple details of how to restore to the original setup, it would be gratefully appreciated!!

Many thanks,

Carol

Answer:How do I restore original size text, folders, etc??

Hi Carol...

If you advise the silver surfing uncle of 87 to right click on a clear space on his desktop and click Properties, you will be able to access the settings to revert things back to normal.

If he's changed the theme and colour layouts, he can reset to Windows XP Style, default blue colour and normal size font under the Appearance tab.

Also under the Appearance tab is the Advanced button, if he clicks that, he'll be represented with a drop down menu with the various settings...default icon size is 32 and spacing (both horizontally and vertically) is 43.

If he uses MSN or Windows Messenger, you will be able to do this for him via Remote Assistance.

Alternatively, he can download third party programs such as TuneUp Utilities 2006 (shareware with fully functional trial period) or XP PowerToys (freeware) to perform the tasks with a few clicks.

Hope that helps you :-)

Using Advanced search in the Backup/Restore Center, I can search older backup sets by file name. Is there any way to search the text of backed up files? I'm looking for SQL scripts containing a particular string.

Thanks.

Hi
I got stuck in somekind of loop, when updating my L930 to the latest redstone build...
I had to use MDRT. So i ended up back on 8.1. I installed insider app again. I hit the fast ring and......just updated what turned up, with out reading anything.....
First surprise: In the past every time I had to restore it did so perfectly, it restored text messages and everything.
Does someone know if its possible to get my txt messages back?
Second surprise: I thought I got the newest redstone build, it turns out all my work (it took for ages with the gears-page) got me build 10586.107?????
I just checked for updates again, and now it tells me I can have .218???
Does someone know if this is normal?
Guess I was lucky when I did all the other insider updates - now I understand, what "the whining" is about. I am not whining though :-)

Hi,
Assuming I'm posting this is in the correct forum, I have a quick question: is there any way to insert visible line/paragraph breaks in a text file? Sometimes I paste a long passage of text into a text editor (notepad, notepad++, whatever) and it removes all paragraph spacing. It's not all one, big paragraph. It just has all the blank lines between paragraphs removed. I realize I can correct this by opening Word and use the "replace" function to accomplish the restoration of the extra line break. I'm just wondering -- since I've never found an answer to this question anywhere -- specifically whether it's possible to add the paragraph spacing **within a text editor itself** somehow.
Thanks. :-)

Windows XP 64bit (no clipbrd.exe apparently)
Microsoft Office 2007

Okay, here's my problem. I had a large amount of text written in word and copied it to the clipboard. I had cut it instead of copied it from the word document when I went to post it online, and out of habit saved the word doc before closing. So, I go to post it online and copy another piece of text before the post can go through. IE then decides to freeze up.

So, what I'm asking is, does XP or Office store previously clipped text anywhere? Or does Word have a function that will allow me to restore it to a previous save?

I really need some help here.

Answer:Is there a history of text copied to a clipboard, or can I restore a word document?

check your C:\Documents and Settings\User\Local Settings\Temp folder
