Q: Insert a text file into a Word 2000 document

Can someone give me a code sample to insert a small txt file into a completed document. I have a Word 2000 template with a custom userbox and in one of the fields on the userbox, I want to give the option to insert a very small notepad text file into the document, if that option is selected, and I don't know what the code should be. Thanks.

Hi,
I insert a visio drawing into a word document by menu Insert|Object|Create from file|link to file then select or enter the visio file name. I double click the object and select the page which I want to view in a word document. But whatever I select, only the saved default active page can be viewed in word document. My question is if there are many pages in a visio file, how can I set a linkage to a appointed page of visio file?

Many thanks for any help.

I'm trying to create a macro in Word 2010 that will allow me to insert text from file but pauses when it takes me to the specific folder so that I can select which file to insert. I have a folder containing over 50 files from which I want to choose.

In Word 2000 under Insert Hyperlink, Word maintains a listing of recent files or browsed pages that you can use to insert hyperlinks into your document.

Is there someway to "flush" that list, when it become so long or so outdated as to begin to lose utility for the end-user? There must be some way to do that, since I noted that my files list (either at home or work) recently was zeroed out in the last couple of weeks or months.

Okay, we have at least a partial answer to this question. Apparently if you flush your recently visited internet page history from your default browser, you will simultaneously delete the recently browsed pages under Insert > Hyperlink in Word 2000.

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
appver 9.0.0.3822
Modname: kernel32.dll
modvers: 5.1.26002180
offset 0001eb33

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

Hello,

I'm new to this and word 2007, so please be patient with me.

i need a bit of help. I've got approx 200 word documents (template.rtf documents) that are unique to our system and i have to back them up (in case they are changed/amended or deleted by users, and also so that we can look at these and decide where we can condense them i.e. similar letters into one document etc).
Anyhow I have managed to copy these over into a folder but the problem I have is that the name of the document is not on the actual document so when these are printed out an passed over to a third party to look at and change it looks like i am going to have to write the name of the document onto each one.

Is there a way of automatically inserting the name of document into the actual document (the footer maybe) without having to open them up?

thanks

I have a report containing columns of figures, and I would like to have lines drawn above the totals at the bottom of the columns. For reasons that are too complicated to explain here, I'd prefer not to use tables to accomplish this.

It's easy enough to get a solid line above the row of totals, but if I select one of the totals and bring up the "Borders and Shading" dialog, it won't do anything but draw a box around the selected text. The four buttons for top, bottom, left and right all do the same thing, toggling the entire box on and off, when I would expect them to affect only the corresponding segments. If I have no text selected, the entire row of text will get a line, and the buttons function independently.

Is this a bug in Word, or am I missing something?

A comment box will appear at the bottom, type in what you want, then click Close. The outlined word will know have intials after it, and if you hover the mouse over it, a comment box with whatevr you yped will appear above the word. You can double-click the initials to change the comment text.

Recently upgraded my other computer operating Win 98 from Office 97 to 2000.
All is finally well with the settings after seemingly endless tweaks and changes except for one nagging problem.If I use Word as the email editor in Outlook (html), the "text" portion only of the email (not subject box-it is black text) is sent and arrives in a very light lime green color! You can barely read it.If I remove Word as the editor, then the text is in black--nice and clear.
I have spent hours playing with the settings in Word changing between automatic and black.I have checked and rechecked the Outlook settings.I can't shake this light lime green text with Word as the editor and I want Word as the editor--very frustrating..And something else important and related....
When you use Outlook to fax,(Symantec Fax Starter), the text arrives on all fax machines, but it is very "faint", however the subject and cover sheet are dark normal text, which makes me think it is being transmitted as light lime green, but showing up faint black as fax machines have only black shades.
Is there a setting somewhere in Windows that is impacting on Word? I've buzzed around the control panel and no success. I don't know why I can't pinpoint this--probably too easy and right there staring at me..........help!

A:How To Copy E-mail Text To A New Word Document

That should be quite straightforward. Open your email client and find the original email - there will probably be a copy in the "Sent" or similar named folder. Double click the email to open it in a full window.Press Ctrl+A (i.e. hold down the 'Ctrl' key and press the 'A' key at the same time.) Then press Ctrl+C You can close the email window and minimise the email client at this point.Open word with a new blank document and press Ctrl+V the text from your email should appear in the Word document, the font will be changed to the default Word font but otherwise the text will be the same.Hope that's what you were after.

Is there a simple way to capture a block of text in a Word (2007) document and paste it in another Word document as a graphic image exactly as it is in the source document?

I then remove the link by selecting the image and using Ctrl+Shift+F9.
 
I guess I had never copied an entry from the middle of a numbered list before. When I did that just now, I discovered that Word renumbered the list so that it showed up as "1.".

hi there - my father is working on a large word document in word 97 - he is not very computer literate and has not been backing up his files. He has somehow managed to delete virtually all of the text on around 160 pages, and this version of his document has been saved (he only has 2 characters on 1 page in total). I have gone into the versions option in the File menu, but there are no previous versions listed, I guess because he had not activated this function. Everything points toward the information being lost, except that if i look in the file's properties it seems that the file still appears to be about the right size (around 660kb). Does this mean that his text may still exist somewhere in the file, and may then be recoverable? (i would have thought with virtually no text the file should be much smaller). It also says that there have been 98 revisions of his documents. Is there any way to access an earlier revision, prior to him deleting all of this text?

I would appreciate any information or advice extremely, even if it is just to clarify that he has lost this file for good.

Hello all,

I'm wondering if it's possible to insert an image in Word 2000 by link (URL).

I know that you can insert the image by link, but what happens is Word seems to download the image and insert the downloaded image into the Word document. This isn't what I want.

I want it so that the Word document opens up, and then the image is located and displayed (if it's not found, the little red cross should show). Similar to the way a webpage works.

I'm hoping this is possible so as to reduce the size of our Word documents. At this time, our header images are somewhat large and it's slow for users opening these documents on our VPN.

If anyone knows how, or can confirm that it's impossible (or an alternative method..), it would be much appreciated!

Thanks,
Sadiq.
 

A:Insert linked images in Word 2000?

ok, it can be done but it's a bit fiddly. And your file needs to be an .html file rather than a .doc, but it's globally compatible of course, and still perfectly editable in Word.

Firstly decide where you want the graphic(s) to go on your word page, in the header and footer for eg?

Then create a new document, but it needs to be an .html document rather than a .doc.

in the place where you want your graphic to go, just type something like GRAPHIC 1 HERE.

Go to the 'View' menu and select 'view html source' so you can see the source code. (if you want to put it in the headers and footer you will find the code available from the document on the right-hand side of the code editing window).

scroll down (or find; Cntrl 'F') your GRAPHIC 1 HERE text, and highlight it.

Then enter the complete url in place of that text, eg:

<p><img border="0" src="http://www.url.com/images/picture.gif" width="220" height="220"></p>

Then close down the source view window and select 'Yes' to save the page. Your graphic should now appear on the page and it will ask you to save the file as a .htm.

Give it a name and just save it on your desktop or somewhere you can easily find it.

That's it really, the graphic(s) will appear on your page and not be saved in the file.

I thought this was only a problem on my Gateway laptop, but now I have a new Dell and it's doing the same thing. When I use the "insert comment" function on either computer, the tag which indicates a comment shows up, but not the highlighting on the word. I usually will highlight one particular word and then "insert comment" but in my copy, whether editing or reading someone else's editor comments, the highlighting is missing. That makes it more difficult to find the comments because they blend into the text. I can READ the comments by clicking "view comments" but then I have to hunt them down inside the doc.

This isn't a problem on my desktop computer. The highlighting is precisely where it should be when I read or edit. When I got both laptops (the Gateway five years ago, the Dell in April), neither one had MS Office installed, so I did it myself. It's not only the same version as the one on my desktop (2000), it's from the exact same disk.

A:Ms Word 2000 "insert Comments" Problem

This isn't a problem on my desktop computer. The highlighting is precisely where it should be when I read or edit. When I got both laptops (the Gateway five years ago, the Dell in April), neither one had MS Office installed, so I did it myself. It's not only the same version as the one on my desktop (2000), it's from the exact same disk. When the Dell arrived, I sat down with it next to my desktop, opened the options in Word on both, and matched them up so the same things are checked and unchecked. All three machines are running Windows XP (Pro on the desktop and Gateway, Home on the Dell).If you have updated your version/s of office. It's quite possible you have a corrupt version of office. Are you licensed for 3 copies? If not, the fact you have 3 identical copies using one license, has possibly caused one or more versions to be corrupt.If you are not licensed for 3 copies.

I have an end user with Office 2003 Basic. In his Word application he is unable to select text with the mouse. The mouse will work in the toolbar and it works just fine in Excel. He can select text with the arrow key, he can edit the document so it is not protected and you can see the mouse down in the document.

I have uninstalled, reinstalled, did the support.dot, removed, renamed normal.dot as Microsoft as said to do with no luck.

Any help with this problem will be greatly appreciated.

So I am officially desperate! I worked on a project in Microsoft Word 2007. I then went to go open it the next day and all of the text was completely gone!! I am only a beginner when it comes to computers so I have absolutely no idea what happened.
To better understand the problem here were the chain of events:
I worked on 2 documents, saved them in a folder, and then closed MSWord
I then worked on them the next day not realizing that for some reason they were opened as "Read Only"
Seeing that, I copied the the text and saved them in new documents
I went to Documents and attempted to move the new documents into the folder with the originals but an error message reading something like "this action cannot be completed because the file is open in another program" when the file was NOT open
In my frustration I attempted to move it over and over again to no avail
I gave up and closed the Documents folder and turned off my computer
The very next day I went to open the project and both the original documents and the copied ones were COMPLETELY EMPTY!!!
the files were still there but the all of text was completely gone!
Through Microsoft forums I've repeatedly tried the "Recover Text from any File" and "Open and Repair" methods
They've remained completely empty
I don't think I can redo the project correctly in the time it is due! Please any info will help. Thanks

Also, if this helps- I tried to save another Document and MSW says... Read more

I have a legal form to fill out in WORD and it keeps printing the entries in the text fields in blue. The A text color tool is greyed out. How can I make it black again? I seldom use Office so I'm a newbie at this one.
 

A:can't change text color in WORD document fields

If the form has been designed as a protected Word document "form" (probably that is the case since it is a "legal form") then they may have formatted it in that manner because that is how they want it filled in, with your content in blue?

Hence the options are unavailable for you to change.

Hi everyone, this is my first post so pardon any mistakes...

I need to create word documents for our product line skus that contain descriptions, pricing an an image of the product. I would like to take the information from our database, create a document for each item and then save the document to a unique name (product#), all done automatically. My thought was to use mail merge for the text fields but I don't know if I can merge images as well. I came across an add-in for word called OnMerge that claims it can automate the merging of images.
My question is multi-part:
1) Has anyone done this using Word 2003 (on XP or W2003 server) ?
2) Has anyone accomplished this using other programs ?
3) Has anyone used OnMerge with Word to create documents as described above ?

Any information that will point me in the right direction would be much appreciated.

I have been trying to insert text from file into an e-mail, this has to be done this way because the recipient cannot accept attachments. I save the editorial as 'text only'. (HTML formatting is turned on) When I try to insert, I get the following message and outlook express closes down. OE6. Windows 98se.

MSIMN caused an invalid page fault in
module MSHTML.DLL at 0167:636bd8b8.

The editorial size is 2.04KB and has been saved as text. The one time I managed to insert this text from file, I tested it by sending it to my other mail address, although it shows as having been sent, it has not been received. This computer has recently been reformatted so OE should be ok.



Any Known Solution Pleeeeese.

Hello,

I read about the chain of discussions regarding the blurred text in Win10. I am not sure if my issue is related to Win10 hence this post. I recently bought an ASUS Transformer Chi300 tablet (1920 x 1080 resolution) to process my works, mainly MS Office Word and Excel. I tried to hop up my tablet with almost a dozen different brands LED monitor (in 1920 x 1080 resolution) but the texts in the MS Word or Excel are blurred. Since I have to work on the documents daily for at least ten hours, the blurred texts affect my visual. Anyone has similar observations and solution? Thanks.

the easy way to print or save any web site content is to first install a PDF print driver
I use cute PDF writer http://www.cutepdf.com/Products/CutePDF/writer.asp

then select file/print on the browser menu & select the new PDF writer as the printer
press print, Then a pop up will ask you where to saved the file and to give it a name.

Then it is a simple matter of browsing to where you saved the file & open it in your pdf reader

I can't advise you on the editing you need to do - however please make some back-up copies of the doc at various stages so that if something goes wrong you have a fallback to work from.
Back up to disc or flashdrive or online (possibly Omnidrive) or all three!! but please don't do what my friend did and lose their PhD work in the final edit stages...

Operating system Windows XP home---Microsoft Word 2000

After just finishing up a 21 post session in Malware removal successfully, I have discovered a document problem in Word 2000! I am not a heavy word user, so 2000 has always worked fine for the personal tasks I use it for.

I typed in two short lines of script IDing a software program I recently downloaded, to tape to my tower to remember when to run the program. Now whenever I go to word, the two lines of script show up on the screen? I can highlight the lines and delete them to compose a new document, but the next time I go into word they reappear again.

In trying to permanently remove the lines, I have rummaged around in word and found in "file" - ( CCleaner optimization.doc) and when I click on that I get the following Microsoft Window that states:

The document or path is not valid. Try these suggestions.
*Check the file permissions for the document or drive
*Use the file open dialog boxto locate the document
C:\...\CCleaner optimazation.doc)

How do I find this document so I can delete the file and am concerned that everything I now type in word will create a new document file! There are three other document files above this one which I never wanted to keep.!

Can I just search in my C drive and find these files and delete them?

Any help wouldbe appreciated. Thanks, Tom

I am preparing a chemistry textbook and have hit several interesting, undocumented limits in Word. I was able to bypass them by splitting the document into two documents and linking the second as a sub-document in the first. This introduced another interesting problem...

Each document contains several text boxes.

Observations
&#8226; Everything is visible is print preview.
&#8226; When I print each individual document, everything prints.
&#8226; [THE PROBLEM] When I print the complete document, some(?) text boxes in the first document do not print; all text boxes in the second document print. (Again, everything is visible in print preview, but not in the printed document).

Your thoughts...

The weirdest thing is going on here at work. When you open a brand new page (blank page) with microsoft word, it opens with the same 3 paragraphs of a document that we copied from a website to work with (however we never saved this as a document) Now everytime we go to open a blank document the same 3 paragraphs open with it and won't seem to go away.

I tried a detect and repair, reinstalling Office and even deleting all temp files but it still pops up, has anyone seen this before or know how to put a stop to it? I would greatly appreciate any help!

Hi all,

I'm looking for a way in either Excel or Word 2010 to add text to a line before the text. So, for example I have something like this:

Name1
Name2
Name2
etc..

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
etc..

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

Cheers,
Matt
 

A: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.
