Solved: Copying dates in Word forms

Q: Solved: Copying dates in Word forms

I have a Word 2003 form in which there are currency fields and date fields for the user to fill in. That's all fine, I can format the fields and calculate with the currency field to create properly formated currency fields that I generate.

On the last page I want to copy some of these fields. Currency ones are fine. What I can't do is copy a date field. I set the text field type to "calculation", and the expression to "=arrival" (the field I am trying to copy from is called "arrival"). Now I can't get the format right. If leave the number format field blank, I get a number that isn't anything sensible, and if I copy the date format from the original field into the new one I get nothing at all (it's offering me a number format, not a date format, so I suppose that's not surprising.)

This surely should be easy. What am I missing?

Hi there

Last year I created an Appraisal form that we use at work for about 500 people. It's a Word protected form with form fields set in a number of seperate tables

For this year, I need to add a function that allows a user to open up last year's form, copy one table from it and paste the data into a different table in another copy of the same form

The table with the data in it is 4 columns wide but may have any number of rows in it. Row 2 onwards needs to be copied across

The table for the data to be pasted into is 6 columns wide and may not have enough rows to accommodate the pasted data so would need some sort of error trapping to pick up that it needs extra rows adding before pasting.

Data should be pasted into row 2 onwards and should sit within the first 4 columns of the receiving table. The idea is then the user fills in column 5 and 6 adding comments about the data they have pasted in

If any extra cells are needed to fit the incoming data they should have form fields in columns 5 and 6 too for entering the comments above

Phew...hope this makes sense

My experience of this kind of thing is limited to modifying other people's VB code/macros to add some functionality myself. This is a bit beyond me!

Hi all,

I am currently using Excel 2003.
I have a column of dates which display the following format 17-Feb-2006. I would like to copy theses from one cell to another, but not in a date format, but as text. Problem is, if I copy into another cell and change the cell format to text, it diplays the cell valuation of 38765.
I also try the data>table to columns route and it does show the cell as text but in this format: '02/17/06'

I believe in excel 97 I could simply copy>paste special>text only, but this seems to have been removed from excel 2003.

I have also simply tried to insert an apostrophe at the beginning of the data in the cell, but this also goes on to display the following format; '02/17/06'

Does this make sense and if so, can anyone pleeeease help.

Many thanks

Greetings whoever will have the kindness in their heart to assist me with my problems.

I have attached a copy of my relationships window. This is my database. Its supposed to be a place where I store information regarding inquiries for the program, keep track of the waiting list, and print intake information to pass along to my superiors for reference during the client interview process. This is the third version of the DB that I have designed in the last 1.5 years. The first one worked the best, probably because I didn'tít really design it. I took the Northwind contacts DB and modified it. The problem was that it was very unattractive. Version two was really pretty Access 2007 is good at that, but not very user friendly; and my ultimate goal is to store this DB on a server where our meager staff can all access it and use any time someone calls with an inquiry. So here I go again, but before I move ahead any further I thought I would cry out to the net for guidance and help.

I really do think that the DB is normalized for the most part. I only have duplicated information in one place. The HOHís first and last name, DOB, and Social are duplicated in the case information table. That's because I couldn'tít think of a way get it there that worked, other than to duplicate it. This is the way I envision the form. Case information + plus HOH information at the top of form. Then a tab object with tabs for the information contained in all the other tables listed i...

Hi,

I have created a form in MS Word and have encountered a problem. The form does not hold its structure. I have fields within the form which potentially could expand to multiple pages. At the moment though the field will only expand to a maximum of 1 page and one order to do this it seperates from the original structure of the form. Does anyone know a way around this? I used tables to create the structure of the form.

Regards

I am trying to merge data from an Excel S/sheet to a Word doc and this data includes dates which I need in the format of '28 September 2005'. I've changed the format in both Excel & Word and for some reason it still merges the dates as '9/28/05'. I've even gone to the extent of putting a character in front of the date so Excel doesn't recognise it as a date but surely I don't have to do this everytime? I have pages & pages of Word docs to go through and edit this extra character out of.

What am I doing wrong???

Hi there,

I'm creating a document containing form fields in Word 2007.

I want to have drop-downs and so I've added the drop down list control. Viewing the properties, I created options for user's to select from.

There's also two further options in the Properties:

Content control cannot be deleted
Contents cannot be edited

Now, here's the thing...when I Restrict Editing on teh form to Form filling only with the first option selected for the drop-down, users cannot delete the control, they can make a selection from the available options but they can edit the option they have selected (including deleting all the text).

Enabling the second option displays the currently selected item for the drop-down only, i.e. the user cannot select any other option.

Entirely useless. I want to have a list of options that the user can select from but not edit in any way, shape or form.

The only way I've found to get round this is to use the legacy drop down control. I shouldn't have to do this.

FYI, I'm NOT using compatibility mode so it's not that.

Anyone else had this issue?

thanks

Hi there,

If you use a table instead of text boxes for the Strengths and Weaknesses section, you will be able to insert a Text Form Field in each box which enables text to be entered when the document is protected (make sure the option to allow 'filling in forms' is selected in the Restrict Formatting and Editing options.)

That's what I do anyway

Hope this helps!

I am having an issue with a document created in Word XP. The doc has a table of contents, with links that jump you to different sections of the document when you click them. The doc also has a number of forms and drop-downs that I'd like to protect. However, my problem is that when I select "Protect...Forms", the links in my table of contents becomes deactivated and can not be used. With the forms unprotected, the links in the table of contents work fine, but I lose all the functionality in the drop-downs (they stop being drop downs!).

Can anyone tell me if there is a way to have the best of both worlds here, and keep the links in my table of contents active while still protecting the forms?
 

A:Solved: Word XP - Protecting forms & keeping links

hi nerdlyman,

caveat: I've never got to the bottom of this and sometimes it seems to work and othertimes not, need to spend time experimenting.

however, you should try these:

1. protect forms via the padlock icon on the FORMS TOOLBAR rather than the TOOLS menu.
2. if 1 doesn't work, then try putting your document into sections (Insert \ Break \ Section Break) and from the menu TOOLS / PROTECT DOCUMENT click FORMS and then also click SECTIONS then untick the section that contains your TOC.

I do not have the install disk for Publisher and the HD that it's on is way too small to swap in to replace either of the new comps HDs. Is there a way I can transfer the entire contents of the old HD onto one of the new ones and have Publisher work? Is there another program that can open .pub documents that is inexpensive? Can I buy a used copy of Publisher somewhere?
If any of this legally questionable??


2. recommendation on a cheap (or free) and SIMPLE forms creator. All I need to be able to do are invoices, expense reports, and proposals.

I recently reinstalled Windows, but not before making a backup of the entire hard drive, and now that I've got the system more or less working fine I want to copy the documents I have on my old drive. Problem is, using Windows file copy modifies the file creation dates - and I really don't want those to be changed.

I tried using Robocopy, but it kept complaining that the file location names were incorrect - apparently because the source folder has a space in the name... So I'm looking for another tool that can do the same without giving me headaches.

Can anyone help? Thanks!

Hi Ė I need some help.

On another sheet I have dates starting 1/1/2003 incrementing by a day up to 2013. What I am looking for is a way to count how many times each of the dates falls between (or on) the date in each of the ranges.

I just started using Word 2007 and am having some difficulty adjusting to the changes. Unfortunately this is the software I am stuck with and no upgrade to 2010 is possible.

Specifically, I have created a lot of forms in Word 2003 by using text boxes to be filled by the user. I've also used links and references so that the user doesn't have to re-type some of the duplicated information throughout the form.

After creating these forms, I protected the documents and other people within my organization use them as templates. These forms need to be uniform throughout the department.

Several problems. I'm having a hard time familiarizing myself with Forms in Word 2007. Another issue, is that I can't get the Forms Spell Check to work like it did in Word 2003. I want my users to be able to check the protected portion of the document. They also need to be able to unprotect the document if they have to make some changes in the form.

It would be very helpful if there was a Word 2007 guide that explains the differences from word 2003 and offers an interactive training.

I'm desperate. Can you help me?

Hello...

I am trying to create a form that people fill in and then the data is transferred into a new document created from a template. The Form now opens when the template is open (thank you XL Guru) but I cannot seem to get the data to transfer...

I have created a 'textform field option' in a cell in word which I have called 'Price' in the 'Bookmark:' section.

I have then entered the following code into the userform module (my user form is called userform1):

Private Sub btnUserOK_Click()

End Sub

Private Sub TextBoxPrice_Change()
vprice = UserForm1.TextBoxPrice.Text
ActiveDocument.FormFields("bkprice").Result = vprice
End Sub

I am quite new to all this so you will have to excuse my ignorance if this is complete garbage...

Do I have to enter the code into the 'Userform1 module' or the 'thisdocument' module.

I then have an OK button which I want to click and the data then be entered into the appropriate 'textform field option'

Any help will be greatly appreciated..

Thank you

Word VBA is NOT my thing (dunno where Annie is lately).

Whatever button (AKA control) on the form you want to "do stuff", rightclick it & "View Code" and shove it in there.

eg:

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
vprice = UserForm1.TextBoxPrice.Text
ActiveDocument.FormFields("bkprice").Result = vprice
UserForm1.Hide
End Sub

I have a form which my customers use to request samples from me but when it comes through, the info order is mixed up (not garbled -- just not in the order of the original format). I contacted my server because I thought it might be a CGI conflict. They suggested I rewrite it through Word so that it was compatible with Microsoft Outlook which is my e-mail system. It didn't work!! Why is this happening? Does anyone have any suggestions?
 

A:Word Forms Formatting

You know, I can think of a million questions to ask you, but I think it would just be easier to ask you to email me a copy of your form. Send to [email protected] I'm very good with forms so I don't think you'll be wasting your time.

Off the top of my head it sounds like you are not protecting your form, or the users are unprotecting it.

Hi, I am creating a form in Word 2003 (Running over Window XP Professional). I have inserted a field called Sdate and on the next line Firstname. When I reference the field Firstname in other parts of the document, it also includes the field Sdate.
So my result looks like this:
Dear Sdate
Firstname
instead of
Dear Firstname

I am having no problems with referencing other fields, only these two. I have removed the date field and put it back in and still the same result.

Hope this makes sense and hope you can help.

A:MS Word 2003 Forms

Hi lotsacats,

Are you using Bookmarks as Field References?
Maybe the Ref for Firstname also spans the previous line including Sdate:

In Tools /Options/View tick the Bookmarks box and then check if the square brackets [ ] are like this:

[Sdate
Firstname]

If so, delete the bookmark for Firstname and recreate it ensuring it only covers the Firstname line.

I am attempting to create a letter template that contains a form for the operator to select various options. After the form has been populated and the okay button pressed, there are a number of message boxes to be completed before the letter can be finished.

I am trying to get the form to disappear from the screen whilst the message boxes are completed by the operator but have been unable to make this happen. Iíve tried using Ďhideí and Ďunloadí in the code but itís still there when the message boxes are displayed.

Any ideas how I can lose the form once I have finished with it?

It's works PC and we only have Office '97 - state of the ark!!

I'm stuck on these 3 things:

1)How to keep the autotext "document name" updated in a form/template (as the form is saved to a new name this doesn't change).

2)Is there anyway to get a TOC to work in a form/template? Clicking on a TOC entry in a template does nothing, but it's suppose to take you to that point in the document. I guess it needs to autoupdate some how?

3)Is there anyway to add row to a Table in a Form? In a typicaly table, if you Tab to the end of the Row, a new Row appears below. But this doesn't work in a Form/Template.

Thanks very much!

Hello, I am using word 2007 and have created a document which includes some form fields (a date field and several check boxes). The form works fine for me after turning on protection. When I email it to my coworker though, the form does not work for her (she also has 2007) and it won't let her turn on protection so that the form fields will work. Can anyone offer any suggestions on how to correct this problem?

I've searched high and low, yet I cannot find the answer to my question.

Basically what I'm trying to do is make a customer-editable lease contract document for a customer of mine. I know the basics of Word forms, and I've entered the various fields (ie. Lessee's Name, Address, Phone, etc), and there are a couple of redundancies in information (specifically names of Lessee and Co-Lessee, so text). Instead of making the lessee type out the same info twice, I thought that I'd set it up so that if they enter their name at the top, it would be entered at the bottom in the same field automatically. I can get this behaviour to work time and time again with numbers (quite simple really), but is this at all possible with text? No matter what I've tried, I can't get it to work, and I've tried everything except ask someone. I'm a reasonably logical and intelligent guy, but I'm at wit's end here with this one.

Thanks,

Hi guys,

Could someone please give me a hand with a little project I'm working on.
This is a little complicated, I hope you understand what I am trying to say

In MS WORD, I am currently able to make drop down forms.

Is it possible that if I were to have multiple drop down forms; I could use the first form menu to define what is listed in the other form menu's.

E.g. [Drop-down form 1] has 3 catogorys in its lists;
- Menu 1
- Menu 2
- Menu 3

When Menu 1 is selected from [Drop-down form 1], [Drop-down form 2] menu changes to whatever list I pre-define for menu 1. However if Menu 2 were seleceted, then [Drop-down form 2] will display Menu 2's list accordingly. Etc

Is this possible? I've seen it used many times before on website forms, but can I do the same in word?

If the above is possible... to take things one step further.. Can I do the same with the 2nd drop-down form; (any option that I select from it) to predefine choices for for a 3rd drop down menu?

Sorry if this is confusing, if there is any part you want me to clarify I'll be happy to do so.

Thanks for your help in advance.

I have MS Word forms that are filled out and saved. On all my machines (XP with Office 2000) all is well. We open the forms, all the check boxes and fields are seen and can be edited.
On one machine, also XP with Office 2000 all the forms formatting are not there. The forms tool bar is there, but protecting or un protecting the form does nothing. The text is there, but the fields and check boxes are missing.

Taking the exact same form to another machine yields the correct formatting.
It seems obvious that the copy of Word on my "bad machine" is missing some function.

Can anyone tell me what the problem is and how to fix it.
Thanks
 

A:Forms in word 2000

A bit of an update.

I downloaded from an on-line backup service we use a word document that has formatting. (Same file as opened on the host computer that is having problems.)

The newly downloaded file opened with the forms function intact!
It is not Microsoft Word!

The next most likely suspect is that I initially put the documents into the offending computer from a pocket PC. I set up a partnership between two computers and the pocket PC. The sync appeared to be successful but it seems that it may have stripped the formating.

I don't know if this is the correct forum to keep this post going.

Any help would be appreciated.

I am thinking of transferring the word documents into the second computer by a physical transfer such as using a flashdrive first. Then establishing a partnership?
Any ideas are welcome.

A:Printing Consecutive Dates in Word 2003

Hi lianinbandon, welcome to TSG.

It's surprisingly complicated to do things like calculations on dates in Word. It's not the kind of thing Word was set up for and you can do it, but it takes a lot of work. Your idea of a mail merge with Excel is a good one. You can enter the first date in Excel (choose the long date format to get the day with the date) and then drag down through the end of the year. Make sure you have a column heading (I used "consecutivedates"). Then you can go to your Word document and choose your Excel spreadsheet as your data source. Enter the "consecutivedates" merge field and you should get your document with a separate page for each date. Hope that helps.

Word 2000 has an autocomplete function for dates that I want to turn off but can't work out how. I can see how to turn off autocomplete for words but not for dates.
The date format used by the autocomplete is different to the date format we use in this part of the world and therefore will never be used.
 

A:How to turn off autocomplete for dates in Word 2000

I am not sure how to turn off the auto-completion of dates but if the format is not how you require it, maybe you could change that instead?

In Word go to Insert > Date and Time and in the Language drop-down field choose the country which displays the format you desire. For example I have English (New Zealand) chosen. Once you have made your selection click on "Default..." to save your choice into the normal.dot file so that new documents will now display that format.

Hope that helps. If not, post back as someone else may have more ideas.

Well, you can double-click an unprotected text form field and give it an exact number of characters to allow. Sometimes, that won't work well, so what I do is put most of my form into a table (anyway), and put this specific field into a one-cell row, and then I set the height of the row to EXACTLY 14 or 16 points or whatever you like. That way, they can hit enter all they like, but it'll never show...

Hi, this is my first post on here.

I am looking to create a simple and easy to use quote form so our sales guys can rapidly generate a quote for our customers. Ideally I would like to be able to have the user select a product name/number from a drop down menu and have information from that product filled into the appropriate categories of the form. (For example the price section would be linked to our price book, and would dynamically update if a different product was selected). If possible I would also like to be able to edit those entries as well in case of custom orders etc.

I'm not sure if this would require linking to Excel or what the best way to accomplish this is.

Also because we haveso many products, I was wondering if it was possible to create some kind of a "drill-down" menu system; so that instead of seeing a list of 1000 products there's something like Category 1 -> Subsection 5 -> Poducts (1-54) (I stole the term from NewEgg)

I've looked at office online help and haven't come up with much. Not even sure if this is the right forum, but if anyone has any information, or could point me to a locale where people would, I would GREATLY appreciate it!

Thanks!

I'm thinking that a dropdown list of 70+ entries will not even be visible in the size of the average monitor. Perhaps you can break these items down into some kind of categories, even if it's A-F, G-R, T-Z?

Consider using Excel for this form too because Excel will let you do data validation within a cell: list, and select a range of cells to list.

The problem is that I can't get the [COLOR=#05408f !important][COLOR=#05408f !important]document[/COLOR][/COLOR] to be easily usable by others. Even if I disable Design Mode and save, the document always re-opens with Design Mode active, so users can't fill out the form as intended.

The only way I can use the checkboxes as intended is to disable Design Mode on the Control Toolbox toolbar.

Which is fine, but that toolbar still pops up as a floating toolbar whenever anyone opens the document, and it opens with Design Mode active again.

Greetings- I've had no luck trying to figure out a resolution to this issue. When I edit a doc with track changes activated, the original dates and times for comments always seem to change to the date and time when I save the other edits in the document. I've read about people experiencing changes in personal information when they save changes in a document, with their user name being changed to 'author', but my situation is different. The identification of the comment author is preserved, but the date and time are changed to current dates and times. I can't seem to figure out a way to do this under the 'protect document' drop-down menu either.

I should clarify that this applies to comments received from others in the past, and I'm working with a copy of the original edited document that I've saved separately, with these original comments included. The saved copy of the original doc, though, still kept these comments with their original author's name and date/time. It is only after I open, edit and save these copies of the original doc that the dates/times are changed to the current ones. Thanks.

I?d like to create a form which collects data using text fields and drop down menus and perhaps even some radio buttons. (ok that part I got)

but I then want to take the responses to the form and insert into a report template. (even this I kinda get, e.g., using legacy tools and ?calculate on exit?)

But the catch is I need to convert some of the responses to different text. Let me give you a for instance.

On the medical history form I have a question such as:

"Do you have a history of heart disease" (followed by a drop down menu with yes or no)

If the person selects "yes" then I want it to autofill into the report (later in the same word document) ?the patient reported a history of heart disease, or if they select "no", ?the patient denied a history of heart disease?
So I want to take the responses to some form content control objects and replace the text (e.g., yes=reported, no = denied) and insert into a place later in the document.

Hi There

This is not a macro question. I have been at this for hours now with no success. I have a picture in MS word 2000. The picture is text with a box around the text. See attached MS Word 2000 file. I want to copy this picture into Excel 2000. But when I do a copy and paste, it does paste into Excel but just the box shows up and not the writing. Can someone out there copy it and paste it for me in Excel 2000 and send it to me?? I can then copy it from your Excel spread sheet into my Excel spread sheet.

Thanks for your help in this.

Mario

Hi
I'm trying to figure out how to make it so that a very long checklist, which includes checkboxes and text boxes, can be transferred to excel. (I'm working with the Microsoft Office 2007 suite.) I've been reading about how you're supposed to enable the "Save Data as Delimited Text File" in the advanced part section of the 'Tools' Options tab, and then save it as a text file to import into excel, but when I do that it doesn't save any information, just two zeros. I've been looking at other forum questions and messing around with how the forms are protected or not, but I can't get it to actually save any of what's entered in to the forms when I save it as a text file. Any help on this would be very much appreciated.
I've attached a zip folder (I hope) with a section of the checklist in case that might help. Thanks so much!

I have created an auto fill form in Microsoft 2007, but my sample (directional) text does not the grey highlight behind it indicating to the user where each text field is located. If i manually apply a highlight, then the user cannot get rid of the highlight after their form is filled due to the document protection.

All the information I have found online indicates that the sample text should have the grey highlight which then will disappear once the user populates each field. Is there a setting to fix this, or am I creating the document incorrectly to cause this difference?

I have this form that I made on my 97-03 version of Word. I had inserted check boxes (that work when you click on them) and fields where you can enter information. In the old version of word, there was this protection button that looked like a lock and you can click it to protect the document in which case it would only be useable in the fields where you can type and the check boxes. When you click it again you could go back to editing the document.

I have jsut been upgraded to 2007 Word and I want to modify my document but I do not know where that little lock button is so that i can unportect my document and change the wording. Please let me know.

Have created some basic online forms. Now I am tasked with displaying each entire field length (visually somehow) so the user can see approximately how much room they have to enter test. Examples:
Name: Field length highlighted or shaded
Location: Underlining would work to indicate field length
Phone: ( Parenthesis might work )

If I type "Enter Name Here" in Properties, under Default Text, only "Enter Name Here" is shaded. The shading does not extend to the maximum length I selected. The field extends that far, but no indicator of the entire field length. Thanks to everyone for being patient. Attempted to be specific as my question seemed unclear in other unrelated forums. This forum/posting/threads, etc. is new to me. I am 62, so go figure!

Hi everyone!

This is my first post here so hope I am clear enough and someone can help

I am wondering if it is possible to do the following in word 2007. The reason I want to use this program is for easy access and completion by multiple low-level skilled people in my organisation.

I want to have a central word doc with employee data (ie names, addresses, phones, emails etc..) and have this data auto insert into a series of forms on multiple documents.

This data is used many times and figure this will make it easy to ensure all the data is current as it will all read off the one central document, also will the human error factor and lost time to enter the same data several times.

Is this possible?

Hope you can help

I am using Word 7.0 and I need some info on the following:

I am copying a series of items from different word documents into a new word document, I cannot remember how to do this in one operation.
What I am doing now is copying from one document then pasting it into my new document, then going into the next document I want to copy from and doing the same.
There is a way to just copy each one into a side panel in word then click each of these to paste into the new document.

Thanks

I have no idea if this is even possible, but I would like to create a spreadsheet that auto-populates a series of dates based on one date that the user enters. Let's say I have a goal date to complete a project, and for every project I work on, something needs to happen 6 weeks prior to the goal date, another thing needs to happen 4 weeks prior to the goal date, and something else needs to happen 1 week and 5 days before the goal date. I would like to set up 4 cells in Excel: one for the goal date, and three for the various things that need to happen leading up to that goal date. I would like to be able to enter the goal date into the main cell and have the other three cells auto-populate with the correct date based on what I enter in the goal date. For example, if I enter a goal date of 11/01/2016, I would like the other three cells to automatically populate themselves with: 09/20/2016 (6 weeks prior), 10/04/2016 (4 weeks prior), and 10/20/2016 (1 week and 5 days prior). Is this possible? Can Excel return dates in that way?

A:How can I auto-populate dates in Excel based on other dates?

Sure, it's easy. Excel internally stores Dates and Times as numbers. Each day is a whole number and time is the decimal portion of that day. See here for a pretty good explanation of how Excel deals with Dates and Times as well as links to all the various Date and Time functions that Excel offers:http://www.cpearson.com/excel/datet...As for your question, simply subtract the number of Days required from the cell with the Goal Date.With 11/01/2016 in A1, use this to return 9/20/2016:=A1-42(42 is 6*7, or 6 weeks.)I'll leave the other two formulas to you. ;-)Click Here Before Posting Data or VBA Code ---> How To Post Data or Code.

when copying the comments - see page 21, and pasting to a new doc, they all show as starting with 1. ?? not 1. 2. 3. 4. etc ?? can someone help?
 

A:word - copying comments

That is correct.

The "comments" reference the sequential number that was assigned to them as you created them throughout the text. That is where the number is derived from, an auto generated field.

By copying and pasting just the comments page, the source reference is lost so "1" is all that can remain. The "number" belongs to the entry on the page that it was referenced from and I think it's lost the moment that you select "copy"?

I am "Cutting & Pasting" a portion of an Excel file into a word document. When I copy it over -- the formatting does not stay put -- my margins are off the page & some info does not copy over. How do I do this without having to go into the Word doc afterwards & start resetting margins, etc? I have also used the "Paste Options" without success.
 

A:Copying Excel to Word

On e way to do it is to set up a blank spreadsheet in word with the number of columns and rows you want and then pasting the data into that. You have an icon on the standard toolbar in word that says "Insert Microsoft Excel worksheet".
The beauty of that is that you can work with it as though you were working in Excel.

Why would you expect Word to be able to handel columns and rows in the same way as Excel.
Chances are, that the data you are copying in is wider than the piece of paper in Word.

Have you also tried "Edit Paste as Hyperlink"

From that, I'm understanding that you do have the Office CD but don't want to install anything from it except Word. If that's the case, here's how it's done.

Put the Office CD in the CD drive, tell it you want to install Office. When you get to the screen that offers you the "Custom" install button, take that option.

When you get to the screen with the list of all the Office applications, click on each one you don't want to install, which will bring up a menu. On that menu is the option "Not available" which means the same thing as "do not install." After telling it everything is to be "not available" except Word, proceed with the installation.

I can't copy/cut and paste in Word 2003. When I right-click, all the buttons are grayed-out. Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V don't work, either. The clipboard instructions say something about a highlight tool, but I can't find that. I have tried SafeMode, and that doesn't help. I haven't found any viruses or malware. I can't copy/cut and paste in Notepad, either, if that suggests something to someone. Any ideas?

I'm running Win98 and IE....when I cut or copy any web page onto a new Word doc (Word 95), anything on that page that was underlined will not print. The response is always "Error, bookmark not defined" wherever the underlined phrase had been. How to fix?

Jack in Vancouver/Portland
 

A:Copying webpage to word doc issue....

What is underlined is probably a link to some website. Your Word 95 doesn't know how to properly handle weblinks. Later versions of Word do, but that doesn't help here.

Two ways I can think of that will probably get your text into the Word 95 doc, but the underlined text will not be underlined. That you can manually do, later, if you want to. Here's how:

After you copy the text, go to your Word doc and see if you have the command Edit>Paste Special, Unformatted text.

or
Open up a notepad window, (or any simple text editor), and
paste your text into that.
Then select that same text (now that it is stripped of all attributes) and copy,
then paste it into your Word doc.

Hi,

I have created an excel spreadsheet of approx 20 pages. I want to copy it to a word doc. I've formatted the spreadsheet to show gridlines and keep the title row at the top of each page for printing. However, I cannot seem to copy the spreadsheet into word so it is as shown in the print preview. The gridlines don't show and the title bar is only at the top of the first page.

Please can someone talk me through the process of copying what I see in excel print preview into a word doc before I cry. I'm using Office 2007.

Many thanks in anticipation.

Phil
