I'm making ID cards for mineral specimens.
full sheets of letter size card stock
3 columns 6 rows
1st cell a picture of the specimen
directly below a description
this cuts up into 6 id cards per sheet
now I need to further speed up the process
I need to limit the size of the picture, so when I fold the card the back side with the picture is slightly smaller, it's too time consuming to resize every image manually. Ideally every other row would be a different size, I don't see a way to make format do that?
on the text half of the card I need to pre define fonts, size, justification
here's an example:
Features: dual shaped crystal structures
Metaphysical: Self-image, change, personal growth
The 1st line is a larger font & underlined/bold [center justified]
2nd line will always say Features:
I think you get the idea
I've been pasting this info in every description cell & changing the text as needed
this requires too much fussing around. I need dedicated blocks for each section of text
I want it to be easy enough to have nearly anyone enter the info...
I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.
I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.
You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I'm creating a template for labels we put on parts boxes for our company. The template contains a sheet of labels...They list a Stock field, Location field, Vendor field, and Part number field. In the middle of each label is a box, where two lines of description can be entered.
The only problem now is, when you go to type the Stock number next to the stock field, it pushes the Location field to the right, like any word processor would normally do.
My question is, is there a way to make all of the stuff in this template untouchable? So that an end-user can open up a new document using this template, and then throw down numbers and words in these fields without having to wrestle with the formatting every time?
Any help would be appreciated.
try using a table, with a cell for each entry item
then you can tab or mouse over from one to the next without disrupting the formating (unless the text entered is larger than the cell)
then adjust to look nice with the table options - ie cell margins etc

I am trying to make Avery 5168 Labels but get this message:
"The margins, label size, and number across or down values produce a page that is larger than the label page size."
I'm not entering my own custom label sizes here - I'm selecting an Avery label from Word's own list. After selecting the Avery product I click on Details. There I can go down to page size and select Letter or Letter Landscape. Both are 8.5 x 11", but for some reason Landscape gets me the error message.
I have already set my document to Landcape in page layout thinking that might be the problem but that didn't fix the issue.
Any ideas? Thanks, H.T.

Having upgraded my desktop PC to Office 2010, I need to import three seperate letter template files for use in Word. These were lost during the upgrade but are on my laptop, which still runs Office 2003, as .dot type files and I also have them copied to a memory stick. However, I am at a loss as to how and where to save them into the new programme on my desktop PC. If it makes a difference, I should add that I do not use Libraries and have disabled them.
Can anyone advise please?
Problem solved - with a bit of advice from a friend! Unsurprisingly, it's very simple.
- Open the document in Word
- Click "Save As"
- Scroll to top of folder list and, under "Microsoft Word", click "Templates"
- Name the template and select "Word Template" in the "Save As Type" list
- Save it
I still don't know where they are saved to but I can now call them up and use them.
At the moment Iím recuperating data do to a bad partition, I have a problem getting back the templates in MS Office that stores my labels.
Can anyone help me in letting me know which file holds this information, at the moment Iím running Office 2003.

HI guys I need to create a template of our letterhead in office
why do we need to do this?
This is so we can create a PDF invoice or general letter and email it. We are using Flash paper to convert files to PDF
We have 2 letterheaded papers, 1 is the mane letter head and the other is a continuation sheet.
What I want is to create a template in office 2003, when using this temaplet if I write an invoice and go past the first page. Office automatically adds the second page "continuation letter head" and continue to do so for as many pages I add.
So basically the first page should be the Letterhead and every page after should be the continuation sheet.
The letter head and the continuation sheet look very similar except the continuation sheet does not repeat our address phone numbers and so on.
Can you please help.

I have a search form, well actually two but they both work the same so.
The form frmEmployeeSearch has two text fields txtEmployeeID: and txtContactNo: as well as two command buttons cmdSearch and cmdEdit.
Entering either an EmployeeID and/or ContactNo and clicking search runs a query EmployeeSearchQuery and opens a report EmployeeSearchReport with details from the search.
Entering an EmployeeID and clicking Edit opens another form, frmEmployeeForm to the record related to the EmployeeID.
The problem I have is with the report.
Searching ID "1" results in employee 1, 10, 11 and so on. How can I refine the search to just "1"?
Here is the query's SQL
SELECT tblEmployee.EmployeeID, tblEmployee.Surname, tblEmployee.FirstName, tblEmployee.Gender, tblEmployee.DateofBirth, tblEmployee.Position, tblEmployee.Title, tblEmployee.DateHired, tblEmployeeDetails.ContactNumber, tblEmployeeDetails.Email, tblEmployeeDetails.Address, tblEmployeeDetails.Town, tblEmployeeDetails.PostalCode
FROM tblEmployee INNER JOIN tblEmployeeDetails ON tblEmployee.EmployeeID = tblEmployeeDetails.EmployeeID

Am wrapping up transitioning my users from Office 2000 to XP and have saved my power users until last. For many good reasons which I have been able to more or less solve up to this point.
However, I have one issue I can't get around and I someone here can as I'd like to know for my own self.
It used to be, in Word 2000, that you would click File-New and a pop-up would come up with all the templates magically available. Granted, I only use a few templates and usually went with the Blank Document option, but that does not help my user who is always doing memos and the like.
So, is there an easy way to create a keyboard shortcut that would bring up the dialog window without having to trawl over to the other side of the screen to bring the option up from the task pane? Or, alternately, can I make an icon to put on a taskbar that would accomplish the same task? Or maybe there is just a setting that I have not come across yet?
Thanks in advance for your help.
File >> New (the third one)
Drag the icon on the taskbar, click it and you have options. The last option brings up the window.

I understand that if a user installs Open Office on a machine with conventional Office 97-2003 that Open Office will use its own suite of products for each application. (Unless the user ops to use Office to open the applications by unchecking the corresponding application boxes during Open Office's installation.) But if a user chooses Open Office as the default for applications on a system that also has Office 2007 on it, how does Open Office deal with this if the OO applications remain checked as the default?
Does the current version of OO even understand how to DEAL with the new Office 2007? I understand that OO can not read docx documents, which is the default for Word 2007, (although this can be easily changed back to doc.) I found out that Open Office 3.0, scheduled for release this fall, will be able to read docx documents. What's so great about docx docs anyway?
Using my example, assume this situation on a new Windows Vista machine. (fresh installs of each program or Office 2007 OEM (factory installed.) What behavior would be expected here?
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.
...will the document update automatically?
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.

Just bought a new laptop with Windows7 64bit installed-my first exposure to Windows7. I had Office 2007 installed on my old Dell 32 bit machine. I had also recently pruchased Office 2010 and installed that on my new machine.
Now, when I try to open those 32bit 2007 files with 64bt 2011, Iget an error message that "no picture file is available", or words to that effect. When I try to "open with", the only option displayed is "Microsoft Office" with an icon that looks like a picture file. When I try to browse to the proper office program(Excel, for example), there are none of teh Office suite programs displayed, only "Microsoft Office".
I can navigate seperately to the proper progran, Excel, etc., and drag the file into the application, and it opens, and all seems to work OK. I "save as" the proper application file, but it still will not open with double-click on the file name.
I have not seen this particular item in the forums and would appreciate very much some help in fixing this issue.

I now find that I can't open the Word and Excel files I created with the 2010 version.

I have a 2003 SBS machine and have various clients connected through exchange to get mail. Users typically leave outlook running the whole day while they work on programs such as access/excel.
I have noticed that on some machines excel and word docs open very quickly over the network until outlook is left open and connected to exchanged. we are opening the files on a variety of win 2003 servers, however when they have their outlook exchange account connected I have seen the docs take anywhere from 3-5x the normal amount of time to open.
I have also noticed that opening email attachments such as xls and doc are also very slow while connected to exchange, but it seems to vary from file to file, some seem better than others.
does the connection to exchange complicate the process of opening docs on remote machines or does it sound like I have a misconfiguration somewhere? I would like to get the performance of opening a file (say a xls) on a network share to be the same as it is when outlook is not connected to exchange.
I do not have these PCs running in offline or cached mode as we have a shared calendar that does not display correctly when I enabled these features. Clients are running office 2003,2007,2010. Turning on cached mode does not seem to make much if any of a difference btw.

On my Win7 PC I have open office and on my WinXP Laptop I have Office 2007. Both have one major problem: the spell-checker does not work regularly for English and does not work at all for other languages, e.g., French, Spanish, or German.
I did read other threads regarding this problem and I did go through the routine of Tools-option-writing aids; and marked "check spelling as you type." I also have my abc on the menu bar checked and the adjacent ABC is underlined with a red wavy line (which means the spell-checker is active).
The problem is that when I activate the Eng language in my task bar and type a wrong word, it will be marked with a wavy red line-- which means my spell checker works for English. Now while I still have English on my language bar, if I type a word in Spanish, the spell-checker doesn't work because the foreign word is not marked with red-wavy line. If I change the language in my task bar to Spanish and write a wrong Spanish word, again the spellchecker doesn't seem to work.
Anybody has any idea what seems to be the problem?

I have a client that has Office 365. They have two people with this issue. It's not really a huge problem but more as an annoyance.

Here is my issue. The Company we consult for has not transitioned all of the way to Office 2007. We have a number of machines that still have Office 2003. Compatibility Pack works on almost all issues.
Current issue is one of our users received a PowerPoint 2003 that has embedded PowerPoint 2007 files. When the user opens the PowerPoint 2007 file Office 2003 shuts down. He has to download the 2007 file to his desktop.
From what I can see this is because the file conversion process shuts down Office 2003 before attempting to open the PowerPoint 2007 file.
Another issue that may be complicating the error is we had to run a Fixit patch from Microsoft that was causing Excel, Word and PowerPoint to be scanned which caused long opening times. I don't remember the KB article for that one at the moment but will find it if I need to.

I am running Office 2003 on Windows 7. My PC is only 6 months old and everything has been running like butter. All of a sudden Office files open slowly when double-clicked from their respective locations (they would normally blink up). If I open Word or Excel and then open the files from there, they open quick. Outlook on the other hand, is just slow to load up...which it wasn't before.
I did a ton of research online and couldn't get a clear fix. My thoughts are:
Anti Virus? (I'm using AVG Free)
Ad-Aware Free? (Ad-Watch live is on...however it was on before)
Windows update or office update?
But obviously I'm here to get your thoughts. It's a pain in the ass when I bought a new PC so it could perform quick, and now spreadsheets and email take 20 seconds or more to open.

i used to use OpenOffice.org - The Free and Open Productivity Suite but now i see there is LibreOffice Productivity Suite - The Document Foundation and they have succeeded in confusing me, can anyone tell me which one is the way to go for a windows office alternative?
Most here use Open office. It has been found to be compatible with the famous and expensive MS product Office.
It has been used by many and they are satisifed. I never heard of the other, which says something in itself.
The most important feature that you want is comapatiblity with MS Word, as most people use that. You want to be sure that you can send them doucments and it can be read. Well, you have that with Open Office.
I realize that this is not primarily a Windows7 problem, but it just bothered me to see one program stopping me from setting the file associations for another program. And I need to vent.
I have been running both Libre Office (LO) and Open Office (OO) for months now, not a heavy user, just trying to keep both going while I figure which one I liked best. These apps share file extensions, and are very file compatible, and I had always been able to open the same document in either
Both families of programs pinned to the Start Menu had, for months, contained file history of many documents, some documents showing as history in both app-families, and able to be opened in either LO or OO. Yesterday, I upgraded Open Office. First thing I noticed, the LO apps pinned to the start menu had their document history icons changed to OO icons. Sure enough, these documents, in the history list of a pinned LO app, open in OO. Rats, I think--I guess I will have to re-assign the extensions to LO. . . . No can do! I have never had this happen before, but I now when I use "Open With" on a file with the shared extensions, (.ods, .odt,...) then "Choose Default Programs...", then "browse" to set a new default, the LO app does not stick. So far, I am unable to set the file association to any of the LO apps.
I have occasionally seen software, usually pretty sleazy and undesirable software, that would hijack file associations, would take-over as much of the compute... Read more

Go to your (default) folder in Windows Explorer. Right-click it and hit Create Shortcut. Then, right-click the shortcut and hit Properties. Hit Change Icon. Give it the Open Office Document icon and also rename it to Open Office Document.
Copy or cut the shortcut.
Go to C:\windows\start menu and delete the old Open Office Document Shortcut and paste the new one in there.
