Hi all

I'm using Word 2010 and I'd like to create a customised ribbon that would include maybe a link to a Word FAQ sheet and/or Word tips. I can create the ribbon ok but wanted to know if I can add links to other documents to a ribbon or create something like a button that will display a Word tip?

I hope this makes sense and all suggestions and pointers welcome.

Thanks in advance.

We use a custom application to track court cases. This application has been in use for over 10 years now.

We recently upgraded all users to Office 2010. We upgraded some users to Windows 7 as well.

The custom application allows users to run a Word document merge from within the application and pull names and addresses into a merge template.

Recently all the users have been getting this message: "An error has occurred. The error is: 4160 bad file name." For the XP users, if they click OK, the document is there, and formatted properly ready to print. Everything works fine.

For the Windows 7 users, they click OK, the document is there but the tool ribbon does not work. Nothing is grayed out, it's all there, it's just inactive. Keyboard shortcuts don't work either. You can type in the document itself, right click works, you just can't use the ribbon.

If the user minimizes and then maximizes the document, the ribbon is then active.

The application programmer is working on the Bad File Name error, but just wondering if anyone has any ideas about the ribbon issue.

Open a new document.
Create 2 text boxes
Link them
Enter some text

All the while it is possible to use the Styles ribbon to change the formatting in the text boxes.

Now Restrict Formatting and Editing by
Formatting restrictions -> Limit formatting to a selection of styles

Editing Restrictions -> Allow only No Change (Read only)

Select entered text

Exceptions -> Groups Everyone

Start Enforcement - Click Yes, Start Enforcing Protection and enter password

It is still possible to use the Styles ribbon to change the formatting in the text boxes.

Now save the document

The Styles ribbon grays out and it is no longer possible to use the Styles ribbon to change the formatting in the text boxes.

Even if you close and re-open the document or break the link the Styles ribbon stays grayed out.

If you Stop and Start protection the Styles ribbon is no longer grayed out and if there is a legacy textbox within the document by clicking it the Styles ribbon is no longer grayed out.

Please can someone explain what is the issue and a way round it.

We currently switched from WordPerfect to Word 2010. In WordPerfect we had a macro for the letterhead where you typed in your information (or picked from a drop down list in some places) and then it would bring up your document for you to continue typing in. I need to set up the same thing in Word and thought of using forms etc. but I want to keep it as close to the WordPerfect way as possible.

I am relatively new to VBA so please bare with me.

The company I work for has multiple business divisions and each business has multiple branch locations.

The letter template needs to allow the user to select their business division in a combobox in a userform which will populate that field in a table in the footer.

I then need to populate the address and contact details, also contained in a table in the footer. I would like this information to be pulled from an excel spreadsheet which will allow for updates by administrators who may have very basic level knowledge of Word. The other option, I believe, is to use docvariables, but I am unsure of how they work. I can only assume that the information is manually entered into the userform and that the document remembers the information?

Any assistance is greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Ok, so I created a custom template and saved it as such (.dotx). And when I want to use it, I go File>New>My Templates>APA Format.dotx. All of that is fine, and the template works fine.

My question: can I have my custom template show up NEXT to the My Templates folder, Blank Document template, etc. Right now that top row of Available Templates has: Blank document, Blog post, Recent templates, Sample templates, My templates, and New from existing. I want to simply add my custom template to this row of options. That would allow me to select New> APA Format.dotx.

I am running Word 2010 on a PC, running Windows 7.

I cannot figure out how to make changes to the "normal" template and have those changes apply to old word files.

In old versions of Windows and Office, I used to be able to make changes to the normal template by going in through the Appdata, and the changes that I made would be reflected in both new documents created, and old documents when selecting "normal" as a text style. However, now I cannot even make changes to the normal template by going through file locations and saving changes.

I can only make changes to the normal quick style icon (by right clicking on "modify" and then applying all changes to "new documents based on this template.") However, this does not alter the "normal" quick style icon in files saved prior to making the changes to the normal template. How can I get my updated normal template to apply to all documents, not just new ones?

OR- maybe there is another solution...

The reason I need the normal template to apply to all documents is that in the new word, I cannot copy and paste and maintain source formatting (even when pasting special and selecting "keep source formatting".) The paste always takes on the destination style, and if the destination style has a "normal" template that is different from the source "normal" style, it automatically selects the destination style and WILL NOT keep source formatting.

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.

A:Word 2013: If I add a template to a document then update the template

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.

Is there a way to get the E-Mail button to appear on the ribbon using 'Defaults Shortcut Menus'? When I google I get the idea that to make custom ribbons you need some XML to import and customize...I haven't fully researched, Hoping someone had a simple answer for this.

I'm restructuring Access 97 mdb to a 2010 accde with a SQL back end (mostly). Since I didn't have 97, I imported every thing into a new db and so far so good. It had a custom tool bar (and other stuff) that I didn't get with the import. Not a big deal so far. But...
When the user does a print preview of a report they need the ribbon option of 'E-mail" which I get when the option "Allow Full Menus' is selected. If I chose 'Allow default shortcut Menus' I don't get the E-Mail button.

Have two problems:

1. I recently installed Office 2010 Professional on my laptop. I absolutely hate the ribbon concept, but feel I have to move forward. One thing I'd like to do is reduce the vertical height of the ribbon. While that's not a problem on a desktop monitor, it occupies almost 1/8 of the vertical space on a laptop screen. Is there a way to reduce its size?

2. Although not directly related, I tried asking this question in the Microsoft Community Forums. However, my password doesn't work. When I click 'forgot password' and enter my e-mail address and the anti-spam characters, and tell it to reset the password, it says it will send the password to my e-mail address. It doesn't; never get anything. Been this way for a year. How can I ever become re-registered there?

Let me see if I can explain this so that others will understand.

I am using MS Office 2010 Pro. I have used Access many times.

Today I pulled up a database that I've been working on. I open a form, need to make a modification so go to design view. When I do this, the ribbon isn't showing everything it should. I see "Home", "Create", "External Data", "Database Tools", a personal one I've created. Missing are "Design", "Arrange", "Format". When I first create a form, I can see all the tabs. As soon as I view using Form View, and then go back to design, I no longer see the tabs.

Anyone ever seen this? Any ideas how to get it to show correctly? It really is getting frustrating, and it only started happening today.

I have tried to clear all the cookies & temp files from my computer (in case something strange was happening in the background), I've restarted my computer. Neither of these things corrected the issue. I have also tried to create a new database from scratch to see if it does the same, and it did. Strange ...

I have a small (4,500 records), SINGLE table database with a backend and a frontend that are both displaying the same behavior. Users are complaining because they cannot click the Cut and Copy buttons on the MS Access 2010 ribbon. They are still able to use keyboard shortcuts as well as right click to cut and paste, but they insist on needing the buttons. They swear it was not this way before some unspecified time. The database is in Access 2000 format and a .MDB on both ends. Other databases in this same format with the same configuration are not having this problem! I have tried, converting both ends to the newest version, rebuilding the front end form, logging into the computer as a different user (it is Win7), repairing and compacting both ends, etc. The problem only seems to be occurring on two PCs at this time which would seem to point to a problem with either the application or the user profile, but I have ruled that out since other DBs aren't having the problem and I logged in as a different user on one of the PCs and the problem still occurred. This is strictly a data entry DB and is nothing fancy. The table is 29 columns wide, but I do not think that would be the problem since this fact has not changed recently. Could there be an invalid character in a field somewhere? How would I figure out where if that were the case? If anyone has any idea what could cause this, please help!

Thanks, Casee

I was wondering if it is possible to trigger a macro when an particular custom tab is clicked.
This is part of my XLM code from the Excel file:

<!-- Add Custom group to the Home tab in the ribbon with one button-->
<customUI xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/office/2009/07/customui">
<ribbon startFromScratch="false">
<[COLOR="Red"]tab id="customTab" label="Inzet Planner" insertBeforeMso="TabHome[/COLOR]">
<group id="customGroup1" label="Planner Maand Selecties" >
<button id="cG1B1" label="Huidige Maand" size="large" onAction="BtnOnActionCall" imageMso="ArrangeByAppointmentStart"/>
etc ....

It all works perfectly for the buttons, that's not the issue.
What I am looking for is that if CustomGroup1 is pressed a macro is triggered. An then of course I have a series of groups and that can be a different macro or no macro at all.
I tried sendKeys and so but that does not work well.
Like the Button Id has an onAction function, is there something similar for when a Group is selected?

Hello Techies: I'm looking for an easier way to have a table checklist (it was copied and pasted to email from Excel) on outlook that's emailed to me daily to be a saved template on Outlook as opposed to the person sending it to me to go back into the previous email and write over previous data?
This is a checklist a person does everyday and updates a grid like table which I had copied into an outlook email. The subject is always the same so I have a folder rule whereby these daily emails are stored. The person goes into the previous day's email and copies the grid/template to a new email with the same subject tittle and enters the new data. I wonder if I can save a template of that grid so whenever the person clicks new email the template/grid automaticallly appears with the same subject tittle, thus avoiding the extra work of copying from an old email?

I recently installed Office 2007 on a new Vista 64 bit system. I was unable to install my previous version of WordPerfect Office 12. When using WP on my previous Windows XP system, I was able to go into the word processor, click open, go to the wp folder (where I kept all my documents) and do a search based on a particular word I was looking for. For example, I could type in the word "hebrew" in the files box and each document file that contained that word (not only in the file name but in the contents of the file) was listed. I could then preview the contents of each document file and open the one I wanted.

Does this feature work in Word 2007 under Vista 64? I have only been able to find a file name with the word I type, even though I know many other document files contain the word I type in the files box. This has been very frustrating because it means I have to preview every file to find the one I want rather than just the files with the typed word in its contents.

Thank you for your time in this matter.

Ok--in the older versions of Word is was a failry easy process to just create a Macro and add it to a toolbar--that function is gone in 2007. I know however that there are add-on programs out there to create your own Ribbons. What I want to do is simple--just create my own Ribbon called "Macros" or something of that sort where I can place the most often used Macros.

I know I can create a tool bar in the older version of Word and use that as an Add-In but its clumsy and of course requires you to go back to the old version to make changes or additions or deletions.

Any ideas how to do this? What's the best Ribbon customizer?

Hello all,
I have a user who uses MS Office 2007 on a Win 7 workstation. When she is working in Word or Excel, and moves the cursor to the ribbon, that program closes. Just shuts down. Doesn't ask to save, and no errors, just closes.

It doesn't happen to me when I remote onto her machine and try to recreate the issue.

I have been on a live meeting with her and watched as this problem occurs.

Any ideas?


A:Word and Excel 2007 closes when cursor moves to ribbon

If that does not happen when another User is logged into the workstation, the issue most likely resides in this Users profile.
If this shows it is in the User Profile, I would rename the User profile (Admin Permissions required) to UserXBak, and then have this User log in, which creates a new profile. If all is good, all needed items like Documents, Pics, NK2 file, etc would then be copied to their locations in the new profile from the UserXBak. Printers will need to be re-added.
Note: Renaming is only adding Bak to existing name, not adding a period, like .bak)

Okay, so when I use a template for an email, it messes the whole thing up. Colors disappear, font changes, even bolding and underlining vanish, and I believe links no longer work. That is once it is sent, the "draft" everything looks perfect.

However I can take all the text from a template and put it in a new email and it will send as it should. I can even Forward the copy in my Sent Folder in Outlook and it will forward it as a Good email with no mess ups.

I could really use help with this as it is a nuisance when doing 10 or 20 emails based off of templates... I have tried to recreate the same templates but still have no luck with them. They were originally made with Outlook 2k3 if it matters.

Outlook1.jpg is how it looks before sending and how it should turn out..
Outlook2.jpg is how it gets sent back to me and anyone else viewing the email..

Hi all!
My daughter saved a document in Microsoft Word. Now whenever I open a new blank document her science report comes up as my blank template. She doesn't know what she did and I don't know how to undo this. I've tried deleting the text and saving it as a new document template but to no avail. That dang report is haunting me whenever I need a blank new document. Can anyone help, PLEASE?

Unless you want to keep it, the easiest way would be to delete the template. You didn't say what your operating system is, but should work in all. Go to search and in search files and folders> type: normal.dot this is the word template. Just delete it and Word will create a new one when it is opened. You can save the deleted template in the recycle bin and if you want to restore it, just open the recycle bin and restore the file.

I have created a word template which I have saved into a directory on a shared drive (not the template directory on my c drive that it defaults to).

When I open the document and enter data into it and then try to save it as a word document (and not a template), the option to change the document type is greyed out (so I can only save it as a template).

Is there any way of saving the template as a word document??

Many thanks

I have microsoft office 97 and work and am having problems with the tracking changes feature. Someone at the office has created a template and we use the normal.dot that came with word. If I get a document from someone that has previously had the tracking on with revision bars the first thing I have to do is accept all the changes and the revision bars are gone. Then I double click on the TRK at the bottom of word to turn them back on so I can make changes to my document and all of a sudden there are a lot of revision bars. Apparently, there are a lot of us with this same problem. Some people double click the TRK at the bottom then immediately click on undo and it gets rid of the revision bars, however that does not work for me. How do I fix this problem? Is this problem within Word, the template or what. Thank You.

When you send the document to each other, do you use the File - Send to: feature ?

If so, do not use the Send to "Mail Recipient" (for Review), use the Send to Mail Recipient (As Attachment) option, or the review bars will come up every time for the recipients.

Everyone has to do it the same however, if just one recipient on-sends it "For Review" it starts again.

I have created a MSWord Template, using MS Office Word 2003. I have established header and footer. In the footer, using "auto text", want to create the "filename". Once the header/footer info is set up, I save the template to be used later, However, when I open the template, the "Document1" or whatever the document number is, appears in the footer as the filename. I have tried to save the document with the name I want, but it remains as "Document1" (or whatever). It doesn't capture the filename on save.

What do I need to do?

I'm creating a template in MS Word 2000. What I'm rying to achieve is to have a drop down list with client names and when a name is selected, the diagnosis for that name is automatically entered in another field (labeled diagnosis). Can this be done with macros? I have no experience using macros but vaguely understand where they would be entered in the drop-down form field options. Any hints would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you,

I created a Word form template with check and text boxes. Close to the bottom of the page I placed a check box, then a description, then text box for a total of three across and seven down. I used the tab so the check boxes would appear in straight line down.
The problem is when you type in a text box the rest of the across line will move over and not maintain down alignment.
If someone could assist me with figuring out how to allow typing in the text box and not move the others, I would greatly appreciate it. I would send the form by email if you need to look at it.

Thank you very much for any assistance anyone could provide,
