Q: Solved: Word/Excel 2010 Adding text before each line in a Document

Hi all,

I'm looking for a way in either Excel or Word 2010 to add text to a line before the text. So, for example I have something like this:

Name1
Name2
Name2
etc..

And then I want to add "1 " before each line in a way that is copy pastable, so it looks like so:

1 Name1
1 Name2
1 Name3
etc..

Is there anyway to do this. it's mostly just to help with copying text from Word/Excel documents onto forums so it formats correctly. Any help at all is much appreciated

Cheers,
Matt

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.

A: Solved: Word/Excel 2010 Adding text before each line in a Document

Hi Matt,
It's probably a little cleaner to do it in Excel than in Word, but also a few extra steps. In Word:

You can run a find a replace. Without including the quotes, find "^p" (the paragraph symbol) and replace with "^p1 " (there's a space after the 1). This replaces the paragraph break at the end of each line with another paragraph break and then "1 " at the beginning of the next line. The problem with this method is that the first line won't have a 1 in front of it (because there's no paragraph break before that line) and the last line will have a stray 1 after it. But this should be relatively minor cleanup.

Alternatively, in Excel:

Insert a column to the left of your names. Without including the quotes, enter "1" in the first cell and copy it down your spreadsheet. Insert a column to the right of your names and enter this formula (assuming your names are now in column B):

=A1&" "&B1

This should give you the result you're looking for in column C. Hope that helps.

I have read previous posts on this but am unable to get text over to Word.
MS Office Document Imaging allows scanning directly to DI. The image transfers to Word OK but without the text boxes.
I suspect because the boxes are lines and and not text. In DI I can add the text but it does not get to Word. If I print from DI
all I get is the text that was added but not the rest of the form.
Where do I go from here?

Brian.

I have created a document in MS Word 2010 that has a textbox with a background color. When I print the document to my printer (have tried multiple printers) or print to PDF, the textbox prints but the text itself does not print. (see attached image)

Upon further investigation of the PDF, I found that the text is actually layered below the textbox. For some reason, Word is printing the textbox on top of the text itself.

When I take the textbox, copy it to a new document, and try to print, it prints correctly.

I have also checked my printing preferences and I believe all the settings are correct.

Does anybody know how to fix this?

Okay, I seem to be lucky enough to get all of the "weird" situations. I have a three page document and just two areas on page 3 show the words as totally being reversed. The original document was created in Word 2003 (on a PC) and the laptop uses the Microsoft Office 2010. When the document is opened on the laptop, this issue happens, but when I take the same jump drive and open it with the PC using Word 2003, everything is perfect.

Is there any way to fix this on the laptop documents? Any idea what causes this or why it happens?

I saw this before here at work but didn't even realize it had to do with whatever program is opening the existing document until today - duh!

Thanks!

I bought a new HP desktop computer about a month ago and upgraded Windows 7 Home Premium to Windows 7 Professional. I also installed Office 2010. All was running just fine but a few days ago when I tried to open a Word document, the splash screen would display but the document wouldn't open. When I run the mouse over the task bar for Word, I can see the correct document or at least a small version of it. However, clicking on it won't display the document so that I can edit it. I searched for normal.dot but couldn't find it. I was able to open the document with winword /safe but I don't want to have to continue doing that. Does anyone have any ideas?

I am a Word Perfect person and use Word only when I have to for compatibility. I want to add a text file that is in tab-delineated format in successive lines to a Word template with pre-set heading, tab stops and fonts. In Word Perfect I have no trouble. I can simply append the text file to the heading template and all the formatting follows for the entire document until it is changed. When I use Word, I come up against Word's "quaint" use of a separate paragraph style command at the start of each line of text. Is there a way I can edit the style to include the tabs and font I want and have it apply to each of the style entries that are being added? Looking at the document in Word Perfect, where I can see the coding for each line, I can see that there is a plain text paragraph style at the start of each line of text and I have lost the formatting that I have in the heading.

I've been trying to create a Task in Outlook from a Word Document that I have created on this computer. The idea is that a shortcut to the document is created as an Outlook Task. Click on the shortcut, and voila - there is the document.

The "Create Microsoft Office Task" icon DOES send the document to Outlook as a Shortcut in a Task, however, when I open the task, Outlook says:"Outlook blocked access to the following potentially unsafe attachments: Shortcut to 'document name'."

It's NOT an unsafe attachment; Outlook WILL OPEN this document if I send it as an email attachment. Outlook will open .docx files types.

Hi all!

I'm working on a new workbook and I'm having trouble working-out exactly what I need to do to achieve the following:

I have two worksheets in my workbook. The first worksheet has a list of codes (budget reference numbers) in rows, and columns for each month within the financial year. Within the cells that intersect with these rows and columns I want to show dollar amounts that display the amount of money remaining in each budget. In my second worksheet I have a populated list of expenses (one expense listing per row), all assigned with one of the codes I mentioned before.

Now, what I would like to happen is for each cell intersecting with a code and month in the first worksheet to search through the second worksheet for any listings that fall within that particular month, and that particular code, then adding them together and producing the result.

I'm not sure I've explained this particularly well, but any help that could be offered would be greatly appreciated.

Hi

Our Budget Office are heavy users of Excel and Word. They do a lot of linking in Word to Excel spreadsheets, and they share the documents on the network.

Of 5 budget analysts, only 1 person is having issues. When she opens a Word document, Excel opens too, it asks about updating the links to which she says yes. Then when the Word document displays, the Excel spreadsheet is large and off the page.

When any of the other analysts open that same document, it updates fine, Excel does not open, and the spreadsheet in Word displays fine.

All budget analysts have the same OS - which is XP SP3 and the same Office Suite which is Office 2010.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled Word. Then uninstalled and reinstalled the entire Office Suite. Still have the same problem. It is specific to the computer, I signed on as myself, and have the same problem.

When the links were added, they were copied from Excel, then "paste special" as an Excel Worksheet object.

I can't understand why it works for everyone except this one user. Any ideas?

hi there - my father is working on a large word document in word 97 - he is not very computer literate and has not been backing up his files. He has somehow managed to delete virtually all of the text on around 160 pages, and this version of his document has been saved (he only has 2 characters on 1 page in total). I have gone into the versions option in the File menu, but there are no previous versions listed, I guess because he had not activated this function. Everything points toward the information being lost, except that if i look in the file's properties it seems that the file still appears to be about the right size (around 660kb). Does this mean that his text may still exist somewhere in the file, and may then be recoverable? (i would have thought with virtually no text the file should be much smaller). It also says that there have been 98 revisions of his documents. Is there any way to access an earlier revision, prior to him deleting all of this text?

I would appreciate any information or advice extremely, even if it is just to clarify that he has lost this file for good.

I am working on a simple word document and I have a font that has both black and white color to it. Is there a way to invert the color of the font? When I invert the color in Paint, it changes the white background to black, too, which I do not want.

I just sent an e-mail to a doctor but it came back undelivered--apparently the address was out of date. Rather than type it all over again, I assume I can simply copy my e-mail text to a new Word document using the Edit feature. What are the steps to doing that?

A:How To Copy E-mail Text To A New Word Document

That should be quite straightforward. Open your email client and find the original email - there will probably be a copy in the "Sent" or similar named folder. Double click the email to open it in a full window.Press Ctrl+A (i.e. hold down the 'Ctrl' key and press the 'A' key at the same time.) Then press Ctrl+C You can close the email window and minimise the email client at this point.Open word with a new blank document and press Ctrl+V the text from your email should appear in the Word document, the font will be changed to the default Word font but otherwise the text will be the same.Hope that's what you were after.

Is there a simple way to capture a block of text in a Word (2007) document and paste it in another Word document as a graphic image exactly as it is in the source document?
 
I just discovered that the method I have been using for years actually doesn't work as well as I thought. I had been selecting the text I wanted, copying it to the clipboard (Ctrl+C), then pasting it into the target document using Paste Special (Alt+Ctrl+V) and then selecting Microsoft Word Word Document Object. I then remove the link by selecting the image and using Ctrl+Shift+F9.
 
I guess I had never copied an entry from the middle of a numbered list before. When I did that just now, I discovered that Word renumbered the list so that it showed up as "1.". The same thing happens if I paste it as an enhanced metafile picture. Putting aside what I consider the idiocy of of this happening, I now need a way to get a copy that has not been reformatted or renumbered. (sheesh)
 
I tried saving the document as PDF and capturing that text. That's even worse. It comes in as unformatted text.
 
I tried using a screen capture tool (SnagIt). It works, but the resolution is not great.
 
After some fiddling around, I discovered a Rube Goldberg procedure that works.
Save the Word document as a PDF.
Open it in Acrobat and save it as a series of pages in png format.
Open the pages I want in something like IrfanView, draw a rectangle around the text I want, copy it to the clipboard, and then pa... Read more

A:Capture text in Word document as graphic

Which version of Windows?Windows Vista (as long as it is not Vista Basic) and newer has the Windows Snipping Tool. It can capture a portion of the screen as an image file than can then be imported/pasted into the document. It may or may not suffer from the same resolution issue you encountered with SnagIt.The other option to try is to turn off the "smart" lists in Word 2007. Personally, I tend to turn those off anyway as they tend to annoy me more than they help me. Here are instructions on how to do that:http://www.technipages.com/word-disable-automatic-numbering-and-bulleting

This is for a friend so I don't have access to the computer yet. She downloaded a word document from her hotmail by clicking on download then open instead of save. She was working on the file and then she stated she went to File > Save. She did not get prompted to save the file in a different location (that usually happens on other Office versions).

She went back to Word but cannot locate the file in her open section or the recent document list. She is on Windows 7 so I finally found the temp folder for her computer but could not locate the temporary file that would have been saved.

Is there any other locations other than the temp folder and the default folders that the file could have been saved? Personally I don't think it saved at all.

Thanks for any assistance

My wife asked me to create an excel document for her at home on my PC which I duly did but she tells me that the nice layout I had produced looks a mess on her work PC which is also running version 2010. I'm in a quandary as to why this has happened and how to fix this please.
I did embed the fonts so no issue there just the look of the document.

A:excel 2010 document looks different on work PC

This might be good to read Why does the document look different? - Office Watch

Also compare the DPI setting on the 2 PC's. In Windows do a search for DPI.

It's hard to guess what "looks a mess" means. A better description would help.

So I am officially desperate! I worked on a project in Microsoft Word 2007. I then went to go open it the next day and all of the text was completely gone!! I am only a beginner when it comes to computers so I have absolutely no idea what happened.
To better understand the problem here were the chain of events:
I worked on 2 documents, saved them in a folder, and then closed MSWord
I then worked on them the next day not realizing that for some reason they were opened as "Read Only"
Seeing that, I copied the the text and saved them in new documents
I went to Documents and attempted to move the new documents into the folder with the originals but an error message reading something like "this action cannot be completed because the file is open in another program" when the file was NOT open
In my frustration I attempted to move it over and over again to no avail
I gave up and closed the Documents folder and turned off my computer
The very next day I went to open the project and both the original documents and the copied ones were COMPLETELY EMPTY!!!
the files were still there but the all of text was completely gone!
Through Microsoft forums I've repeatedly tried the "Recover Text from any File" and "Open and Repair" methods
They've remained completely empty
I don't think I can redo the project correctly in the time it is due! Please any info will help. Thanks

Also, if this helps- I tried to save another Document and MSW says... Read more

Can someone give me a code sample to insert a small txt file into a completed document. I have a Word 2000 template with a custom userbox and in one of the fields on the userbox, I want to give the option to insert a very small notepad text file into the document, if that option is selected, and I don't know what the code should be. Thanks.

I have a legal form to fill out in WORD and it keeps printing the entries in the text fields in blue. The A text color tool is greyed out. How can I make it black again? I seldom use Office so I'm a newbie at this one.
 

A:can't change text color in WORD document fields

If the form has been designed as a protected Word document "form" (probably that is the case since it is a "legal form") then they may have formatted it in that manner because that is how they want it filled in, with your content in blue?

Hence the options are unavailable for you to change.

Hi everyone, this is my first post so pardon any mistakes...

I need to create word documents for our product line skus that contain descriptions, pricing an an image of the product. I would like to take the information from our database, create a document for each item and then save the document to a unique name (product#), all done automatically. My thought was to use mail merge for the text fields but I don't know if I can merge images as well. I came across an add-in for word called OnMerge that claims it can automate the merging of images.
My question is multi-part:
1) Has anyone done this using Word 2003 (on XP or W2003 server) ?
2) Has anyone accomplished this using other programs ?
3) Has anyone used OnMerge with Word to create documents as described above ?

Any information that will point me in the right direction would be much appreciated.
