Thanks to all.

A:MS Word Mailing Labels

Are you using some special labeling paper? I'm assuming it's a sticky label on one side. There should be instructions on how to do the File>>Page Setup... Then choose your appropriate type of paper. For the labels it should create a large table where you can input the many different addresses.

I searched a little bit, I didn't see it:

How do you shut off a Word document before sending it so the receiver of the document cannot back-track and see any changes you made to the document before sending it ?

I hope that made sense, but I read something about a year ago that said if you e-mailed someone a Word Document, that they may be able to pull that document into their system, and simply use the 'back' key to show any changes you made to the document before you sent them the version you saved as the final one.

Am I making sense ?

There is a way to shut this off so they cannot do that, I just don't recall how.

Hi everybody,
In Word 2000 there is an e-mail-button. How is that supposed to work? When I click it, I get the email address lines and so on at the tip of the screen. When I click the send button, Word (or some other program) immediately tries to send the mail, and complains, since there is no Internet connection open. If I click the send button once again (being stubborn), it starts to dial my default dial-up connection, but without the password, although Outlook Express and Internet Explorer always remember the password.
Can I get Word to put the mail in the outbox of Outlook Express instead of trying to send it immediately. Or, can I get it to remember the password, if it has to send it immediately.

When I looked in the Word help, it seemed more normal to combine word with outlook 200 than with Outlook Express. Does it make sense at all to try to use Word and Outlook Express together? Maybe it is better to simply write the e-mail message in word 2000 and then cut and paste it into Outlook Express?

I tried sending an e-mail in Microsoft word with the e-mail icon on the quick toolbar, couldn't send it and couldn't close Word. I got this message:
"This error can occur if you try to send a Word document by using the Email ( Microsoft Office Button | Send command) command. If Word hangs, or you closed Word and a new message dialog does not appear, it is possible that Outlook did not receive the request to start a new message.
To avoid this issue, restart Word and attempt to send the attachment again, but wait for Outlook to respond prior to attempting another action.
You cannot close Microsoft Office Word until the Send Mail Command is finished. Switch to the New Message first, and either send or close the message". I had to manully close down my computer, then restart it. I can use all my programs but everything is different, and Outlook background is grayed out.

Hi there

It's been quite a while since I asked for help. I can easily create mailing labels using Mail Merge. The data source resides in Excel. I automated the mail merge process by recording a macro in MS Word 2000. When I ran the macro it did exactly what I keyed in. I looked at the macro, which defaulted to Macro1, by going to Tools-Macro-Macros. The macro was there. I saved the Word file as Labels.doc in my C drive. I also saved the other file that had the fields in one sheet. You know the one that I mean.

Here is the problem. I e-mailed the 2 MS Word files and the Excel file to my co-worker. My coworker saved the 3 files into his C drive also. When he tried to run the macro, it did not work. As a matter of fact, when I went to Tools-Macro-Macros to see what went wrong, my Macro1 was not there at all. When I e-mail an Excel workbook with macros to anyone, the macros are attached to the workbook but this is not the case with macros recorded in MS word. How can I get around this??

I'm writing a thesis (100 pages). I switched from Word 2003 to 2007, which is now upgraded to SP1. I'm experiencing this very annyoing bug and the SP1 update didn't fix it.

When I'm editing text, just suddenly when moving the cursor with arrows or selecting text (just doing some very basic editing) something happens. Text is moved within the paragraph about the amount of one word or so. But the screen is not updated correctly, text is moved at a certain portion of the screen but the rest is not updated. So the result is a total mess and I don't know what is really where anymore. I have to enter some line breaks to update the whole text again and get the screen updated.

It might have something to do with hyphenation or something, but I'm really not doing anything special. I couldn't find any other complaints about this, so it's strange. I could only find answers like "your touching your laptop touchpad", but no, this is not on laptop and the screen update is clearly buggy.

Has anyone else encountered this problem?

Hi everybody!
I have had it happening frequently, that I open a Word 2000 template (i.e. opening the template itself, not creating a document from it) and edit it, and Word 2000 crashes (I get "This program has performed an illegal operation and will be closed" or similar) when I save it. When I restart Word 2000 after that, the template I worked on is read-only.

I have found a sort of work around for it:
If I save it under a new name, that copy is not read-only. If I then reboot, it is possible to delete the template that was read-only before the re-boot, and rename the copy to the name I want it to have.

I would better If I could edit templates without Word 2000 crashing though. Does anybody know anything? What could I be doing wrong?

I hope I explain this properly. I sent my manuscript to my first editor who obviously had a "editing" program. When I got the book back I accepted or deleted her suggestions per red editing lines. Anyway she did a really bad job so I hired a new editor. The new editor wanted the already line edited version I went through(I also added 2200 words to the original) when she got it on her end..it still had alot of red boxes(accept/delete) plus misc things. On my end, the manuscript I sent was a clean, red box free, copy. We went back and forth for two hours. What she was looking at was: on the right side of my word document there were boxes that said deleted and formatted. I see NONE of what she is talking about on my end. Is it the editing software the first editor had or is it the new editor's software. I finally sent her the unedited original version but when it comes back, not only will I have to do normal revisions but I will also have to do them word by word because I need to add the 2200 extra words I put in the edited version. I just don't want this to happen again, and I'd like to understand why she see''s things I can't see on my end. Thank you. PS I am very new to WORD.

I'll try and explain what I'm trying to achieve.

We're on Office 2010 at work, and we use Word for our reports etc.

Someone creates the report, then its saved as a name etc. This is then checked by someone, and any comments seen are handed back to the author, who then goes back in and ammends this. It goes back to the checker, looks good/more comments.

After all this, its finally sent to QA for a review.

So, the question I'm asking is, is there a way to automatically create a new version of the report when ammending it?


Report_A_v1 - original
Report_A_v2 - ammended based on checked
Report_A_v3 - ammended based on checked

And then QA see's:


The reason we're after this, is that when its checked, and sent to QA, there may be a chance that the author ammends something without the checker knowing, so QA are looking at it, find stuff wrong with it etc, as its a completly different version (just Report_A)

So, basically looking for an automated way to create new versions on save.

At the moment, we're having to create, save (pw protect), then open as Read Only, Save as new version. But, if someone uses the pw instead, it doesn't prompt, and saves as original.

One person has sugested we use the MD5 numbers, as these are created for every file, and are different. However, these are very long, and could cause issues with 8 B etc, or 1 and l.

I need to scan in Company Logos and paperwork for editing. I need to scan in the whole document with pictures and text - in its entirety - for editing in Microsof Word.
When I used the M.O.Document Scanning and sent the file to Word it did not include the picture and the file was not an exact replica.
It has been while since I have had to scan like this about 3 years but I remember when I was using Jasc Paint Shop Pro 3 for this purpose everything was a lot simpler.
Am I missing something? I dont think it should be this complicated?
Please help?
Any information would be greatly appreciated!


A:Scanning Text and Images for editing in Word

When you scan in a document it only becomes a series of dots on a page. If you scan in a document of words, to your eyes a small section of the dots will appear as letters. To the computer it is only a picture and the computer doesn't know if that "picture" is a letter, or a word, or a dog or a frog, it just doesn't know dots from dots.

There is software that can make an attempt to decode the dots or a certain size and shape to be particular letters, and those letters might actually form words. That sort of software is called Optical Character Recognition (OCR), but it will never be 100% accurate.

As far as I know, Paint Shop Pro does not have any OCR within it. Sure you can scan in a document and it will look like a document of letters, forming words, but as far as Paint Shop Pro cares, it is only a picture. Try and see if you can spell-check anything you scan. If you can, then it must have some sort of OCR. Without having some sort of OCR software when scanning, all you got is a picture.
