Clickable menu in Word 2000

Q: Clickable menu in Word 2000

In setting up an elderly aunt's computer, I am trying to create a detailed "How to..." file for her in Word 2000. I would like to create a menu at the top of the topics I have How To articles on and make them so she can click on them and it will go to that subject. Then place a Back to top for her so she can go back up to the menu with a single click like I have seen in html files. Can this be done in Word? If so, can you tell me how or tell me what to search for in Word to find the instructions?


Preferred Solution: Clickable menu in Word 2000

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.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Clickable menu in Word 2000

Ideally you'd go for a Table of Contents, but that can get quite complicated, IMO.

If you won't have too many topics (say no more than a dozen), try creating a bookmark for each topic title (in the menu and the document) and hyperlinking to the article from the menu and vice versa.

Another way would be to forget the menu, use a style (e.g. Heading 1) for each topic title and then use the Document Map to navigate (the Document Map button ought to be on her Standard toolbar -- looks like a magnifying glass over a table). I've seen quite a few ppl say "avoid Document Map like the plague", but if it's just plain text then it might be worth a try.

I tried to open an RTF file a few hours ago, and it crashed word about halfway through opening. I then reopened word and found that all of the text options (File, Edit, View, etc) from the toolbar are gone and that there are only icons left on the toolbars. I tried fiddling with the toolbar options to reset it, and I even reinstalled word, but the damn text pulldown menus are still gone. What can I do to get them back?

A:Word 2000 Text menu is missing

Hi RevAnthony,
Welcome to TSG. Sounds like you have a corrupted normal.dot file. Make sure Word is closed and run a search for normal.dot. It is a hidden file, so you may have to set your search to show hidden files and folders. Delete any instances of it that you find. Re-open Word, and normal.dot will be recreated. Your menus should be back. Hope that helps.

Help! I have suddenly got only a full screen view for Word 2000. I am running 98 on an older computer. It's just for office stuff (work computer @ home), but kids from time-to-time play very simple online word games from Real Arcade. About a week ago, I noticed Word was in a Full Screen view mode. I tried alt + v, esc, ctrl+ everything. I remember before when I did this, if I rested my pointer at the top of the page, I'd get the menu. I don't have file, edit, view, etc., much less all of my formatting toolbar. I am a church secretary from out of a home office and I really need my menus! I tried un-installing the whole Office Suite and re-installing it, but it didn't help. None of the other programs from the suite (Excel, Publisher, Outlook) are having this problem. All scans, NSW, etc are up-to-date and clean. Can anybody make any suggestions?

I am doing genealogy for my family. I use Word 2000 to record my family group sheet
I don't know what it's called but I'd like to be able to click on someones name and have it bring me to the place where I have that person's information. I've believe I've seen that capability in some documents.
For example, I have my parents family group sheet in which I am listed as their son.
Then on another page is my familys group sheet
So I'd like to be able to click on my name Lawrence (which I expect would be in blue underline font) in my parents family group sheet and be brought to my name Lawrence (I don't know whether or not would be in blue underline font) in my family group sheet

I was trying to configure Word 2000 to send email, but I can't seem to find the means to configure the bloody thing. I have tried help files, but wasn't much help.

Anybody plz?


A:Microsoft Word 2000 aka MS Word 2000 - Sending Email - Need Help Configuring

Word itself does not send (or receive) e-mail messages. You may configure Word to be your e-mail editor, but it still requires an e-mail program (such as MS Outlook) to send messages.

You can send e-mails from within Word by using File, Send To, Mail Recipient (or Mail Recipient as Attachment), but this still uses Outlook to do the sending and receiving.

Recently upgraded my other computer operating Win 98 from Office 97 to 2000.
All is finally well with the settings after seemingly endless tweaks and changes except for one nagging problem.If I use Word as the email editor in Outlook (html), the "text" portion only of the email (not subject box-it is black text) is sent and arrives in a very light lime green color! You can barely read it.If I remove Word as the editor, then the text is in black--nice and clear.
I have spent hours playing with the settings in Word changing between automatic and black.I have checked and rechecked the Outlook settings.I can't shake this light lime green text with Word as the editor and I want Word as the editor--very frustrating..And something else important and related....
When you use Outlook to fax,(Symantec Fax Starter), the text arrives on all fax machines, but it is very "faint", however the subject and cover sheet are dark normal text, which makes me think it is being transmitted as light lime green, but showing up faint black as fax machines have only black shades.
Is there a setting somewhere in Windows that is impacting on Word? I've buzzed around the control panel and no success. I don't know why I can't pinpoint this--probably too easy and right there staring at me..........help!

A:Access 2000/Word 2000 Mail Merge

Read other 10 answers

Hi folks,

I have this problem that is hard to search for on Google. We have a lot of word 2000 documents connected to a simpel text data file (data.doc) that is used with mail merge.

Here is our process:
1.) data.doc is opened, filled with all variablenames we can use in our documents (name, country, etc.)
2.) data.doc is opened, filled with the actual data (from a database) belonging to the variables name (Kees, Japan, etc.)
3.) Our vb.net 2008 application does step 1 and 2, then starts a template word 2000 document which has that data.doc file attached for mail merge. The template is now filled in with the correct data.
4.) vb.net 2008 application tells MS Word to print the document.
5.) Works fine and we have ourselves a nice document filled in with data we specified in the vb.net 2008 application.

Now comes the problem, some new computers will have office 2007 instead of office 2000 installed, during testing we have encountered that it does not error but the office 2007 installed computer does not fill in the data and just shows mergefield names <<name>> <<country>>. Also when printed out. So it seems like the datafile is not connected when opening the template in word 2007.

If we let our vb.net 2008 application show us the document visually first, we can re-attach the data file again and we can print the data, however there are 3 thing wrong with this approach:

1.) More user input which is not needed.
2.) MS Word is opening and showing, somet... Read more

Hello, I am a consultant in central Texas and I have a customer that does not recall the chronology of how he got into this situation but basically, I'll attempt to explain. He has Word 2000 installed on an XP Pro machine. He wants to do a mailing that 2000 is unable to handle. We found that 97 will do the desired process with no problem. I tried to install Word 97 to his computer but the setup program indicates that 97 is already on the machine. There is no trace of Word 97 that I can find. The customer thinks that he has vacillated between 97 and 2000 at least twice. I just want both on this machine at the same time. I could uninstall both and then reinstall 2000 then 97 and I think it will work but I was hoping to avoid the uninstalls. Any ideas?

A:Unable to install Word 97 on Word 2000 machine

It sounds like Uncle Bill left some fragments in the registry (or, hopefully, just a file used to flag Word'97's presence).

Hopefully you are using "My Documents" to save everything created in MSWord (either version); that will make it pretty easy to back up the files you don't want to take chances on. Burn a couple CDs or DVDs as needed/if available.

Check the Add/Delete Programs- to see which version/s are installed. I would uninstall each one- re-starting the computer between uninstalls.

With operating systems it makes a difference in which order they are installed; I would follow the same rule for the same reasons--- install the older one first (Word 97). Paranoia makes me want to shut down & reboot between versions. Then install Word 2000.

Good luck.

One of the features I really liked in the DOS version of WordPerfect 5.1 was the ability, when highlighting, to simply type a character or string of chars. near the end of the relevant portion to be highlighted and have the program take the highlight directly there.

Can WORD 2000 do this? So far, all I can figure out is how to highlight either an entire word, sentence, or line, but none of them with the precision that WordPerfect 5.1 allowed.

I have had a search of the forum and can't find a solution to this, so apologies if it is a known / obvious fix for the experts!

I have created a document in Word 2000 that includes some "Windings" symbols. In opening the document on other machines in Word 97, some of them have changed font colour and turned into "Wingdings 2" and others have remained in "Wingdings" but changed font colour.
Wingdings is definitely an installed font on the machines I have tried, and it appears to be a consistent change on those different machines (i.e. replaced characters are the same and colour changesare the same).
[We are all appear to be using the same printer drivers and are using Windows 98]

A:Changing symbol font from Word 2000 to Word 97

Slight error in the above. Gone back to original machine and checked document. When opening in Word 97 the font isn't actually changing as I did use "Wingdings 2" in the original anyway, but clolours are changing and the actual symbol used in "Wingdings 2" has changed.

So basically the two problems are:

1 - font colours are changing on all the symbol font characters (whether "Wingdings" or "Wingdings 2").
2 - a different symbol is being used for those in "Wingdings 2" on the Word 97 machines.

Hi all, I have a problem with viewing my Word 2000 documents under Word 2002. I format a document under 2000 and when I look at it under 2002 the margins on the top and bottom are shifted upward. The margin settings are the same size when I look at the document under 2000 and 2002 but the 2002 documents are offset. My text boxes and pictures are shifted somehow. I was thinking there might be a hot fix for this issue. Anyone know what is causing this?
Thank you

A:Word 2000 Doc's offset under Word 2002

are you flipping between 2000 and 2002?

why not use the same version of word on both computers?

i ran into a different problem with office '97 and 2000 and changed all systems to 2k.
i'd run a 97 or 2k word doc and was always asked if i wanted to change to the other format, sometimes i did, sometimes i didn't.

i have a feeling you try to look at a doc done in 2k and want to view it in 2002.
when you finish you're probably asked do you want to revert back to 2k and that's why you're having problems.
if you change it to 2002 it 's supposed to be backward compatible with 2k and you don't say if this is happening one time or every time.

The first thing I would suggest is to get a clean default template. It cures most Word problems and is the easiest to do.

Enable the viewing of hidden and system files.
Do not have Word running.
Search for and delete all occurrences of the "normal.dot" file.
There must be at least one, if you find none, you have not enabled the viewing of hidden and system files.

When you next run Word, a new "normal.dot" file will be created.

I an new to all of this and have been slowly figuring out the things I need but I am stumped on a few issues.

I am revamping a Access 2000 datafile that I got from a friend. I have made all the changes I need in my form but have the following problems. I have an autonumber field on the form. I want to reset the number to an number other than 1 or 0. I also want it to increase it by 1 rather than a random number for each new record. None of the books I have seen discuss how to rest the number to a number that I want to start at.

Also I put a text box in between the autofield label and autofield box. I put a "K-" in this box. I wanted it to be like a prefix for the autonumber when the form is printed. The "K-" is there in design mode but when I switch to form mode, some other characters are in the box. I do not know where they came from. When I switch back to design mode, by "K-" is back in place. How go I fix this.

My Access datafile is set up to print the form. Then I want to go to Word and use the information in the fields to merge into various documents. If I open a document and do one merge, then Word sort of freezes. When I go to open another Word document, the open file screen is set for data files rather than Word "docs" and it will not let me open a regular Word doc. I have to back out of Word, restart it and then I am okay. I heard there was some similar problem in Acess 97. Is this the same problem. How can I fix this?

I have Windows ME and have made a list of my collection of stamps as a WORD Doc. I now want to amend this list/s with Catalogue numbers, values,etc but find that when I enter new tab positions to enter these extra details these tab positions change without apparent reason. Suggestions on where I can get a short course (or read about) word processing.


A:Word Processing with MS Word 2000

My suggest:

Do it in a table instead.

Turn your show hide button on.
It looks like a backward P on your toolbar.
Then, Insert-Table and tell it how many columns you want, and just choose 2 rows for now.

In the first row, type your column headings and bold them. In the second row, put your first item. When you hit tab within a table, it will:

a) take to you the next cell to the right
b) create a brand new row for you if you're already in the last cell of the table

Select JUST the text (not the backward Ps at the end of each of your lines, and not the arrows, which represent tabs) and then click and drag them into the appropriate cells of your table.

To get more rows, click in the last cell of your table and hit tab until you get the number of rows you want to work with for now.

If you've got TONS and TONS of items already tabbed the way you previously described, send me your file, and I'll hook you up with the tables in about 5 minutes. But it would take me an hour to tell you how to do it.

I change to for the portrait section it always prints like the letters are stretched. Have any ideas
on how I can make this print the way I want it too?

I wish to remove a program from the startup, but do not want to delete the program. How can I do this easily? With 98there was a simple command, but it won't wok with 2000.

You could install msconfig in win 2k and simply disable it under the startup tab.


Alternately, you could delete the registry entry for it. Most startups are located in


some will be in the RunServices key.

You can delete an entry in the Right hand pane by right clicking onit and deleting it.

I would strongly encourage you to use msconfig though.

I'm using Access 2000...

My Menu Bar isn't working correctly. When I go to "File >> Get External Data" nothing happens. The "Import" or "Linked Tables" options doesn't appear.

The only way for me to get it back is for me to "customize" the menu, create a new menu from the commands, and create my own "Get External Data" option. However, it only applies to "that" respective database.

Kindly let me know what I have to do so the "Import" and "Linked Tables" are there automatically as they should be (for all new databases).

Note: I created a number of databases in which I created a Custom Menu and removed the "Get External Options" section. I'm not sure if that caused the problem...

Does any one know how to put the list in the Control Panel expanded menu in order?.
I am using Win 2000 Pro.

Thanx in advance

A:windows 2000 menu

I don't understand what list you mean, and what order you want it in. Are you referring to the icons in Control Panel?

Click on View, and you will see you can have 4 different views (Large Icons, Small Icons, List, Details). If you select Details, it will let you view 2 columns (Name and Comment). Clicking on the title bar will allow you to arrange the icons in Alphabetical or reverse alphabetical by either column.

Below them you will see Arrange Icons with an arrow to the right, meaning the folder expands that way. You can select to arrange the icons by Name or Comment.

If these methods are not what you are referring to, then please clarify what you want to do.

I have a computer to fix and it's not cooperating with me! This is what happens when you don't keep up... anyway, the admin/main user profile is saying 'access denied' when loading, and it takes you to a default screen. Also, I can't access IE, I get the same message when trying to surf. The start menu is also not responsive - it highlights, as if it should pull up the menu, but it doesn't. IF I boot up in safe-mode though, everything is fine! I managed to backup the documents and settings folder, and the profile to a different folder in case I need to do anything drastic. The person I got it from said that McAfee found a virus but only found where it was after he disco'd from the internet - found it in documents and settings and the only option was quarrantine. He did that, not realizing it would quarantine the entire folder! Oops. I looked in the quarantine folder for McAfee and there isn't anything listed. I can't believe it's a win 2000 problem though, since all is fine in safe-mode?! In running Ad-Aware SE just now, McAfee detected a virus, but it hasn't been plugged into the net so it must be the same one. Suggestions are useful, I can post a hijack-this log if necessary.

HI everyone,

I have a question about this project I am working on.. I want to put 10 application in one database. So I can have one Menu with 10 buttons and when click on one an specific application will open. Right now all this application are on a different databases.. We do have split the databases to back and front ends.
I tried to leave the application like that and just have a menu application so when they click a button I direct them to the database but then another access will open and ask for password so everytime they click a button it will open access and asked for a passwords kind of annoying. That's why I wanted to just move all the forms, queries, reports, etc to one database.
It that would be okay or there is a simple way to do this. I would appreciate any suggestion you may have.

AMD, there are a couple of ways to tackle this, you could bring all of the Objects (tables, queries, forms and reports) in to one database by simply "Importing" them, however you would have to reset the various "Relastionships" between the tables.
You could bring all of the Queries, Forms and Reports in to on database (front end) and leave the tables where they are and "Link" to them in the new database.
If the database are connected in any way, say by using common Parts, or Customers or Suppliers then in the long term it would be better to Import everything in to one database and then "Rebuild it" taking advantage of those "commonalities" to reduce the number of tables, queries, forms and reports.
