Word 97, using index and references

Q: Word 97, using index and references

I have an 18 page manuscript that I need to create a reference table at the end. I know word has an index feature and I have gotten as far as marking the text but I need for one to number the references. Does anyone know how? I dont want to have to copy and paste each reference and number them manually.

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.

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,

I am working with a .docx file about 20MB. I included several figures (different formats, e.g. .eps, .emf, etc.) with numbered captions and crossreferences in the running text. 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!

Hi Everyone,

I'd be very grateful if someone would let me know if it is possible to "automate" an index in a Word 2007 document please.

By this I mean that any user, having selected a Title or Subject in the Index, can somehow click the adjacent page number, and be whisked away to that page immediately.

I realise there is a "Go To Page" function in Word, but the potential readers of this document have virtually no Word skills at all.

Many thanks,

In the remaining cards, put a cross-reference to the bookmark named "Title". When you type the title in, it'll auto-fill the rest. You'll need to learn a bit about forms:

Some entries come out bolded, italicized, or different fonts even though I did not mark them that way. I have meticulously gone though and made many corrections, but no matter what I do, I cannot change some of the entries.

I used Word Perfect 12 to write a book, and I now want to create an index (not through the use of concordance). I thought I had figured out every step, but evidently not, because when I press "generate" as the final action the indexed items appear but the index only shows them to be on the last page of the document. In other words, "John Smith" is found on every page of a 20 page document, but the index only shows him on page 20.

I tried going back to page one after defining the index at the end, and then the indexed items only listed page 1. How do I get the index to be created for the entire document?

But when I try to print a from Word 2007 a .doc file that was based on one of my .dot files for printing 3x5 cards, the better part of the text doesn't print on the card. It appears that Word 2007 is is trying to print on 8.5x11.5 paper, even though I'm using the manual feeder on my HP LaserJet P1006 printer, and have set the paper size to 3" x 5" in Word.

So I end up having to go to the other room, and and send the same file over my network from my old computer running Word 2003 to the same printer. Then the file prints out properly onto the 3x5 card.

Basically at work we have these documents we need to fill out for each project which could contain up to 25 standard tasks. Each task is shown on a list and also has a table dedicated to it later in the document. The master document contains all 25 tasks and tables but not all are relevant to every job, so we have to go through and delete the ones we don't need. It'd be much more efficient if we could have a way of selecting the necessary tasks (e.g. from an index table on the front page) and having the document populated with only these tasks. I could easily do something similar in Excel using the VLOOKUP command, and if I can't find a better way then that's what I'll have to do, but this would still leave a bunch of empty tables to delete and isn't great in terms of formatting etc. so I'd rather have it all in Word if possible. Also, this would mean for some jobs the list of tasks would read e.g. 1,2,3,9,10,17 etc. when I'd much prefer it to be 1,2,3,4,5 etc.
Any advice and help regarding how to approach this problem would be greatly appreciated.

As purchased, there was two primary differences between them, which were going to be resolved first thing: #1 had been subjected to the flawed and fairly well documented 2.05 bios update which caused machines to start reporting fan failures while actually causing fans to run at top speed with no temp/system governed control, and been loaded with the Win 10 64bit OS, while Win 7 Pro 64bit (the OS I intended for both to be using) was installed on #2.

I am using Firefox 6 with Windows 7, and periodically I find that, when I open, say, my bank information, my membership reference, etc., has not been saved, causing me to have to input it all again. I do tick the "Remember these details?" box, but perhaps two days later all the info has gone again. It is more of a nuisance than a desperate situation, but I would like to find out how I can prevent this from happening, if anyone has any ideas. Many thanks.

Hello Everyone,

I am utilizing McAfee as my protection of choice and I used to use xofsoftse spyware remover. I was thinking of trying a new spyware remover before I renewed xofsoftse. As part of Comcast internet toolbar it has a free spyware removal tool but I have always heard of utilizing multiple spyware software. Since there are way to many bad ones out there I wanted to hear if anyone has anything great to say about a particular program. Free is always better but a great working program is what im after. In past spyware removers I would scan and get things with one scanner that another would not find and then it would find them again right after deleting the spyware?

I have a 4year (1year hard drive) old dell inspiron 8600, Windows xp sp2, 90gb, (only half full) ,1.7 mhz processor, 512 ram. I generally communicate and photo edit with my computer with some video editing in there also.

I think AVG Anti-Spyware and SuperAntiSpyware Are Good Choices,
AVG also scans for trojans as well as spyware,
and alot of people recommend superantispyware,
both superantispyware and avg anti-spyware have paid and free versions I only have the free versions on both,
the avg anti-spyware starts as a paid version but after 30 days it reverts to the free version.

I have an Excel97 spreadsheet that refers to, and summarises, a number of other spreadsheets. The files are all within sub-directories of one single directory held on a NetWare5 file server. I want to be able to copy this complete directory structure to a CD and then onto a laptop to enable it to be updated elsewhere, and then copy it back to the network. The top level directory names are the same on the file server and the laptop.

The problem is that when I copy the files to CD, the formulae all appear in the form:

='\\Sample_nds\.SAMPLE_DATA.sampleltd\StockLists\GROUP 1\[Region 1.xls]Store Summary'!$A$300

with the full NetWare directory handle which is not recognisable on the laptop.

Is there any way of doing this, to allow the files to maintain their linkages when moving them between machines? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Evening Steve,

Have you tried clicking on Tools | Options | View and then making sure that the Formulas option in the Windows Options section is Unchecked? That should sort it out once you've finished transferring the pages, although why it would want to check itself just when copying to CD is something I'd have to work on...

I've checked all the /dev/tty* references under Linux (bash) but none work for COM* access (via Python in my case). I've enumerated all available tty references using a simple python script but still unable to "decipher" the right string for the
serial access. The equivalent Python code runs under Debian Jessie without any issues (of course, the COMx reference there is slightly different). Please let me know how to access COM ports using bash in Linux for Windows (build 14965). Thanks.
