How do you make a Microsoft Word template repeat onto following pages

Q: How do you make a Microsoft Word template repeat onto following pages

A user created a policy form template (word .dot) with fields that can be tabbed/filled out. She wants the user to be able to fill out the form then be able to insert a blank copy of the same form (repeat page 2) at the end of the document. They want this for user who has to create mulitple polilcies.

I can't figure out how it can be done in the template which is attached in the zip file. Could possibly be done in Acrobat but not sure. Any ideas?

I forgot to add: Win XP sp2, office XP sp3

How do I make a field repeat in word. Example: If I have a field with text data and wish to have word populate other fields with the same data in other fields in the document. I do not want to use find and replace. Thanks!

A:How do I make a field repeat in word?

I can't claim a huge amount of experience using Word fields, but I have used them on a couple of times.

My recollection is that you can use the same field name in multiple locations on the Word document, so why not just do that, and embed the same field name where you need it to display? I haven't got a clue how you would have a field name ripple through into other fields.

If you take for instance: a tax form such as the inland revenue what’s the best way to us it as a template in msword. I tried scanning as a .bmp and putting it in as a background
But cannot get the A4 size to come up correct . I want to type in a template on screen and put he actual document in the printer and have he type come out in the right place.
Any Ideas please.
Regards ALAN

A:need best way to make template in word

Ouch, Alan.

If you can get the scanned form, I would cut off whatever margin you can from the resulting bitmap, put the bitmap in as a watermark inside the header. On the document itself, open the forms toolbar and insert the appropriate form fields so that the printed text will appear inside the "field".

Sound like a lot? Maybe, maybe not. Might be really easy!

(Windows XP) I've made a nifty letter template (called myletter.dot) with my return address and so on; now I'd like to make one for my son, who is a limited user. I copied myletter.dot from
Documents and Settings/me/Application Data/Microsoft/Templates
Documents and Settings/him/Application Data/Microsoft/Templates.
But when I log onto his account, Application Data does not appear under Documents and Settings/him, and I can't load the template.

Thank you.

A:limited user can't make Word template

You could just copy the the .dot template into his my documents or even his desktop. Then when he wants to use the template, all he has to do is double click on the file. It works exactly as if it was stored with the other templates, except it is now much easier to find.

Hi there, I'm new here and been searching for a solution to this but haven't found anything that particularly helps.

I'm writing a paper and I've had to use a supplied template. Whilst editing in Word 2007 when I try to print it 2 pages per side and duplex - whichever printer I use in the office - it doesn't do it correctly; doesn't do duplex and just makes the page a little smaller and higher on the paper and one page per sheet.

It works fine on any other document in the same program and in any other program, just not for documents created using this template.

Any ideas how a template would affect it?

I am trying to figure out how to delete unwanted graphic elements from Word templates. Specifically things like vertical design-type lines in the resume formats such as the ones that occur in Word 2003 and the newest one for Vista/2007.

I can't seem to find any way to remove these elements, nor can I see them in the document maps or format boxes.

Thanks for helping.

Hi, I have a .dot template containing vba that i would like to use for new documents. However, as soon as I rename or relocate this template, any document that I have previously created from it loses all inherited vba. I was under the impression all elements of a template (such as vba) were meant to be passed on (embedded into) to the new document at creation, instead of just the template passing its own path/folder reference so that the new document can be directed back to the template to read the vba when required.

As the documents created from this template will be distributed to various computers which may not even have a local copy of the template, this is a big issue. I am using Word 2003.

Thanks for your help.

So I know this should be very easy. I have a 285-page novel manuscript I'm formatting for submission. I have page numbers that start on the 3rd actual page, which is where Chapter 1 begins. I have a header but it only appears on those first two pages; it stops before Chapter 1. How do I have the header appear on every page of the doc? I googled it but it's confusing....it took awhile to get the page numbering right, because I wanted it to start where it does....I'm afraid if I mess with the header as it is, I'm in for more frustration. A simple step-by-step would be appreciated. Thanks!

...will the document update automatically?

A:Word 2013: If I add a template to a document then update the template

Do you mean if you created a new document from a template. Your very brief question is not very clear.

If you created a new document from a stored template then altering the template will not alter the document.

A template is a stored base design that you have stored for future use, so that it can be used to create a new document with the same format. Once that new document has been created & saved it is no longer connected to the template.

I have a rather large document that needs approximately a dozen pages have content printed on the backside of the page. Is there a way to format this within Word 2007, or is the only way to do this via printing the entire thing first then taking the pages I need to print on the backside and reinserting them the opposite way.


A:Word 2007 - Is there a way to make specific pages print on the backside of a page?

I believe Microsoft refers to this as "duplex printing" which can be done automatically if your printer supports that feature, or if not it can be done manually. There's a "Manual duplex" option check-box in the "Print" dialogue-box in Word 2007. More information here: http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/w...of-the-paper-duplex-printing-HP001154387.aspx

Is there a way to tell Microsoft Word to "guess" what I mean every time I make a typo? For example, I type "tsanding," and instead of changing it to "standing," it underlines it red. I know I can then right-click it, and select AutoCorrect > standing, so that, from now on, if the same exact typo arises in the future, in which I accidentally type "tsanding," it'll change it to "standing." I've thus far collected *hundreds* of specific typo corrections in this way. But that's very time-consuming, and is only a weak attempt at preventing typos I may be likely to make in the future (based on the fact that I made the exact typo at least once before). Is there any way to establish that I want Microsoft Word to go ahead and correct every single "underlined red" occurrence from now on, based on its best guess as to what I meant? (except in cases where the typo was so bad that it has no guess at all) That way, when it corrects something I *didn't* want corrected, I can then go back and add what I wanted to its dictionary, to tell it not to consider that word an accident from then on.

A:Is there a way to tell Microsoft Word to "guess" what I mean every time I make a typo?

Found this in the Word Help files. On the Tools menu, click AutoCorrect Options. In the Replace box, type a word or phrase that you often mistype or misspell ? for example, type usualy. In the With box, type the correct spelling of the word ? for example, type usually. Click Add. Is this what you're talking about?

With my Windows 7 Home Premium I use Microsoft Word Starter 2010, which came preloaded to my laptop. I save much information in it's standard 'document' page. When I click on a saved document, after about 5 seconds it displays the small window "Microsoft Word Starter 2010" and goes through some process, telling me it is 'starting', 'processing' and takes a further 10 to 20 seconds for the actual document to open.

I've got a document about 41 pages, broke into multiple sections. Track changes have been on, I've been able to edit the file for a while up until an hour. Now, when i make any changes this document just closes, this has been tried and same phenomenon occurs on 3 other computers, so it must be something with the file? Any idea would be appreciated.

Some interesting characteristics:
when change is made word shuts down.
but when you use auto recover and word opens back up, the change that caused word to close is actually made.

I downloaded a program BytescoutPDFViewer.exe that opens a pdf file and saves the file (converts) to txt, Word, or html according to the button you click at the top of the page. The program does what I need done. The only problem is I have thousands of pdf files I want to convert with this program. The program is all mouse based as far as I can tell. I have looked at macro makers but all the macro maker programs require some kind of programming skill I do not possess. Even a macro would have to be adjusted to move down the screen to access different file names in a given directory (like Win Explorer).

Is there any way I can make the PDFViewer repeat over and over via some kind of outside program where the outside program also supplies a filename to be opened?

Or, is there any way the program can be automatically opened with an Office program like Excel?

Or, is there any way to just batch convert the pdf files into text files using a freeware program.

Thank you in advance for your replies.

I have a customer using the Pages app for word processing. He has a template that he uses as an "invoice" for his customers.

This template has a header, footer, and "body". In the body of the template, there's a section (split as a table), where he can enter the customer's name, address, and other contact information.

The problem he is having is that in each section, he has a label to identify what should go in each "cell" in the table. So the first section says "Name:", the next one "Address:", and so on. After each label, he has a couple spaces, and from there he wants to have the person's name, address, or other info in a different font size, and in bold.

After entering the information into each cell, he can manually adjust the size and bold, but he wants this to be saved into the template, so all he has to do is type the person's name and such, and it will automatically be a different size and in bold.

I tried changing the size and bold without typing any data, then saving the template, but it keeps reverting back to the old font size and non-bold.

Any ideas how to change this so it "sticks"?

I have put some serious hours into to trying to make this invoice template work with Windows 7. It came originally with Office 97 and Office 2000 and was designed by Village Software for Excel usage.

I have tried everything to make this darn thing work and I really need it for my business. The file names that I copied over to Windows 7 are:


I pasted these files into location C:/Program Files (x86)/Microsoft Office/Office12/Library as many on the net have suggested in XP (except it would be Office11). I have successfully performed this feat in XP but not Windows 7.

I also do not get the number toolbar to sequentially increase the invoice number.

Unless you want to keep it, the easiest way would be to delete the template. You didn't say what your operating system is, but should work in all. Go to search and in search files and folders> type: normal.dot this is the word template. Just delete it and Word will create a new one when it is opened. You can save the deleted template in the recycle bin and if you want to restore it, just open the recycle bin and restore the file.
