Word '03 IF Field w/ References

Q: Word '03 IF Field w/ References

I am currently trying to make an IF statement in Word 2003 that will be conditional on (and auto-fill with) information in 2 different Text Form Fields.

The two fields are bookmarked as "Own1" and "Own2"

I would like it to simply display the input information in the "Own1" field if "Own2" contains no data, but display "Own1 and Own2" if Own2 does contain data.

Just to be very clear, here are the two different examples.
Ex. 1 - Own1 = John Smith ; Own2 is empty

Print - John Smith

Ex.2 - Own1 = John Smith ; Own2 = Jane Smith

Print John Smith and Jane Smith
{IF { FORMTEXT Own2 } <> "" "{ FORMTEXT Own1 } and { FORMTEXT Own2}" "{ FORMTEXT Own1 }" \* CHARFORMAT }

I currently have this as the IF statement and it doesn't work as I want. All it will display is "FORMTEXT" (I have tried this with REF in place of FORMTEXT and I get the same result), unconditional of any text being present in the "Own2" field. It seems as though the IF statement never gets to the comparison part of the IF statement.

Thanks for any help!

I'm writing my dissertation. I am using cross-references for both Tables and Figures (Word 2003). I'm also using EndNote for my references (I have no idea if this has anything to do with the problem).

The problem is that EVERYTIME I print, it does something weird and puts in a large amount of white space before a cross-reference. On average, 3/4 of a page of white space. If I click to the right of the last word before the reference, it highlights all the space as well as the cross-reference for deletion. If I put the cursor right before the cross-reference, I can just back space and delete it all. I delete it all the way back to the word before the cross-reference and add the proper spacing, save and print, it still does the same thing.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I am using word 2007 for an academic paper. I have a lot of examples that generally look like this:

(1) a. this is part one
b. I continue here
c. some more text here

When I add a cross-reference to the example, Word only allows me to choose the example number (1), but sometimes I would like to specify that I am talking about e.g. (1a). If I just add the letter in the middle of the reference, it disappears every time I update the field. Adding the letter outside of the reference, e.g. (1)a is not an acceptable option for many journals. Is there a way to make the letter stay inside the reference and not disappear after I update it?

Thank you!

Three editors on my project have all experienced the problems listed below in several documents. We were all using Word 2007 with SP2, not SP3 (Ive now installed SP3). I have found two other posts online with the same problems, but no responses.

The documents have Next Page section breaks between sections and appendices. Heading 1 is numbered 1, 2, 3; Heading 7 (the appendix heading) is numbered A, B, C. We use the Figure label for captions in the document body and a custom label, apxFigure, for captions in the appendix.
1. When a caption is inserted in the appendix, all figure captions in the body (Figure 1-1, etc.) change to the appendix label (apxFigure) and the numbering changes to A-1, A-2, etc.
2. One or more captions do not appear on the cross-reference list despite numerous reinsertions of the table of figures (TOF).
3. One or more captions are not included in the table of figures list.
4. Sometimes, the TOF will display the caption, but it wont be available in the cross-reference and vice versa.
We have tried:
1. Replacing all captions (sometimes corrects the problem, sometimes not)
2. Copying and pasting the document section by section (without the last paragraph marker) into a new document, thinking it might be corrupted. No difference.
3. Updating all captions and cross-references, both individually and collectively.
Does anyone have an explanation -- better yet, a solution? Does the service pack have anything to do with this?

As many of you know there is suddenly a problem with opening the old word Documents in the CRT contracts directory. It takes a long time to open them. This is because they were all created in the old bas(CRM Tool), and there is a reference to the old avenue server which is now turned off.

If you remove this reference then the file will open normally. Unfortunately I know of no way to do this to all the files at once, you will have to do it file by file. Is there a way to get all the files fixed at one time? Please help!

I'm having some incredibly frustrating problems with the INCLUDETEXT command - here is what I want to accomplish.

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,

Dear Forum,
I am working on a long document in Word 2007 at the moment (high-performance laptop, Vista Home Premium SP1). Among other things, I am using charts, copied from Excel into table cells to keep them in place, within the document. These Charts have captions (Figure 1, etc.) and within the text I am referring to these figures with the help of cross references. This works fine until I try and print these pages. I have tried printing to a printer and printing to PDF file format and in both instances the documents gets screwed up. I have attached a pdf file with an example. As far as I can see, what happens is that the chart that the cross reference refers to, pops up itself where the cross reference is embedded. This not only occurs on the output, i.e. printout or pdf file, but appears after the print command in the document itself.

I would be very greatful if anyone had some advice on how to fix this.
Kind regards,

However, Word screws up the document and puts an additional figure into the correct crossreference itself. I do a fair amout of editing, deleting the double figure, but when trying to print the document (update table, numbers, etc.) the double figures are back. For me it is still a mystery, since not every figure is put twice in .docx. Can anyone help me with that? Many thanks in advance!

I have a unique problem. I am trying to use the INCLUDEPICTURE field code. The document I'm using is linked to a very sophisticated database software program and I have received instructions on merging data from this database INTO the INCLUDEPICTURE field to create the filename for the photo files. An example is typed below:

{INCLUDEPICTURE "G:\\START\\IMAGES\\PHOTOS\\{MERGEFIELD "PROVIDER_LAST_NAME"}_{MERGEFIELD "PROVIDER_FIRST_NAME"}.GIF"}

In the above example, the photo filenames are all matched up to the fields referenced in the formula (last_first.gif). These are the correct field codes, and the double slashes are important, I have been told.

My problem is that as soon as I save the document containing the above field, the underscores all change to "%20" and the field doesn't work!! No one at my software vendor's help desk can help me with this problem. Does anyone know anything about preventing this??

I'm using Office XP. I have a document merged with Access. Inside the Word document some of the merged fields are text, and some of the merged fields are currency. In earlier versions of Word, the merged results would be the same format as the format used in Access, ie. if you had a data entry in Access that was $5.00 it would show up as $5.00 in the merged field in Word. However, I cannot get the merged field in XP to show up as currency. It only is shown as The fields that are currency will not show up as a currency value, only as a regular number. I tried the numeric picture field switch in Word help, but that didn't work either. I have these merged fields in a table. However, I have also tried them not in a table with the same result.

While I'm asking, I would also like a field not to show up in Word if it is equal to $0.00. Is there any easy way to do that?

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.

Ok...I'm having the following problem/issue.

If I want to write a letter in word with inserting "fill in" prompts...and I want one of the prompts to be inserted a couple of times in the document (cause it's repeated ) but the rest to still prompt me everytime for typing by me cause they change....how do I do that???

Example:
I like {FILLIN "\" type name of animal I like\""} and what they do.

My {FILLIN "\" type name of animal I like\""} does everything I wanted him to do. But if you had a {FILLIN "\" type name of animal I hate\""} they are a real problem. They only seem to do the basic things in life. My favorite pet has always been a {FILLIN "\" type name of animal I like\""}

If I wanted the above to say:

I like dogs and what they do.

My dogs do everything I want them to do. But if you have had hampsters they are a real problem. They only seem to do the basic things in life. My favorite pets have always been dogs.


NOW...HOW DO I MAKE MY LETTER SO THAT I only have to type "dogs" once when the prompt comes up "type name of animal I like" so I only get prompted once. But yet, keep the prompts for the other stuff in the document to keep coming up because they are all different.

I have a long Word 2002 document (running XP Professional 2002) that includes several hyperlinks to several other Word documents. If I click on the hyperlinks, they work - i.e., I can follow them to the target. However, if I print the first file, the hyperlinks simply appear as text. Is there a way to print the file so that the hyperlinks are automatically followed, brought in and printed out along with the main document?

Some of the target documents themselves include references to other files, this time to PowerPoint slides. I'm not certain whether these are hyperlinks: they look like pictures dropped into the file (there is no file reference). These don't print either, but this time, if I attempt to print I get the message "Error! Objects cannot be created from editing field codes."

I have not been able to find anything on this in Word Help or on the Microsoft site: it's all about updating hyperlinks, changing the format of the link reference, etc.

Hi There

Does anyone know how to convert a merge field (for multiple letters) into a table.

I have a list of assets and values saved in an excel workbook seperated by a | and want to convert the merge field into a table once all records have been merged. Its impossible to split the cell in excel (truth be told theres more than one list and without knowing how many assets there are in each cell I will end up overwriting data and the excel file is already big enough)

For someone reason it converts the merge field into just one cell of a table.

I tried this on a just plain text (same data) and it works fine.

If anyone can thing of a way to do it hopefully as part of a mailmerge before/after event it would be appreciated.

The field is the DAY in the date field: 10//007. I put the insertion point in the DAY field, click on the Text Form Field icon and fill in the field attributes. Type=Number, Max length=2. I type in a Help description, click OK, save the file, and click on the Protect icon.

When I key in a 2-digit num and press tab, the next page comes up. The same thing happens if I try to put in alpha characters. My help message does not appear. I pressed F1.

I would appreciate any help with this issue.
TIA

All of a sudden, whenever I open a Word document, all the field codes are shown as the code, i.e., "{REF_Ref153783185}" rather that what it represents, i.e., "Figure 22." Why would this be happening? How do I change it?

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?

There must be a way to fix the text field lengths in Word for Windows 2002, so that the form does not change/collapse when an entry is made with fewer letters than are allowed in the field.

Can someone help me with this?

My sister had the same problem and she got around it by putting the fields in tables. She then set the tables as transparent.

Hope this helps,

I'm trying to create a word doc with text form fields. I have them in the doc but I want them to remain the in the same location after I type in each box. Currently when I type enough characters in the box the next text form box moves to the next tab location. How can I make each box "freeze" where it is before I start typing in it? Any Suggestions?

Embed the form field inside a frame. You can then set the frames border so that it is invisible so that it can't be seen.

Hi,

I've created a .dot template file (I've tried it with a .dotx template also with the same issue) and am launching it from an Access database. The Word template contains three fields: {FILENAME \* MERGEFORMAT} {DATE \@ "dd/MM/yy" \* MERGEFORMAT} {PAGE }. The problem is as follows:

1) The database names the new document, saves it under the new name and launches the Word template - and works fine
2) When the document opens, the DATE field and the PAGE NUMBER field work fine and when you click on them they are still fields which will update as normal.
3) The FILENAME field, however, is replaced with the name of the template - not actually of the filename. Worse still, this is no longer a field name so can't update with the new filename.

I've trawled the net and am baffled as to why this would be happening and what I can do to fix it. Hope you guys are cleverer than me!

Regards,

Andrew
