I want to create a mini-Lyrics book.
I want to print the book so each 8.5 x 11 paper will have 4 sections.
Each section will contain 1 Title, 1 Artist and 1 Song Lyrics.

I would like to store the data in XML (easiest format to update).
Excel and Access are too cumbersome.
So it will look something like this..

<title>Under The Sea</title>
<lyrics>The seaweed is always greener,
In somebody else’s lake.



Now how would I make Word to read this in,
and force it into my template of 4 Songs per page?
Can Mail Merge do it?
I would like to avoid VBA coding if possible
as I want to make this simple and painless.

I've written a small book and I'd like to format it into book form with Word. No matter what I do it just doesn't come out right. I've set it for 8.5" height 11" width and selected book fold, thus allowing me to fold it in half to resemble a book. I'd like to print on both front & back of the pages. I just can't seem to get the settings right. No matter what I do the print comes out vertical. Can someone suggest the page settings and printer setting that I would need to use.

At my work we have templates from Word 2003.

When we open them in Word 2007 they doesn´t work as they should.

We have for example a menu like

2 Electronics
2.1 Phones
2.1.1 Mobile phones

When you make an uppdate on the menu the sub-numbers disapear so it is
2 Electronics
Mobile phones

Also in 2003 you get a menu to the right where you can change in the list not only the types but also the numbering. Is there something like that in 2007?

A:Making Word 2003 templates work in word 2007

A couple of things.

Firstly here is an interactive guide for some of the features in 2003 - 2007. It is useful in some circumstances

In regards to using 2003 templates for 2007 - i noticed that not all things worked in the same way in 2007 especially when it came to printing (things would display differently to how they would print)

I work for a big company and i had to redesign alot of templates. Sorry.

In regards to changing the numbering, you now right click on one of the actual numbers within the document and you can change the numbering from there.

Hope that all makes sense.

Have been using WORD 2007.
No problems.

But, I just downloaded and installed Open Office. But I only want to use it for its Spreadsheet. However, it looks like its word processing component has taken over.

Now, my WORD documents are being opened by Open Office which I do not want.

I have created in Microsoft Word 2003 on an XP OS some lengthy documents. I created them using a view setting of 150%.

I sent them to my employer, who is using Windows 98 and Microsoft Word 97. My boss opened them with his system and they displayed on the screen at a view of 200%. He wants me to send him Word documents that he can open from the CD-R that I send that will automatically display at 100% view on the screen so that he does not have to set the view for each document as it displays.

So what is the answer.

Is there a way that I can save my created documents so that when my boss gets them on a CD-R that they will open on his system at a view setting of 100%.

Is there also a way that his system can be set to default to 100% in reading from the CD-R.

My boss does not want to copy the documents to the system hard disk from my sent CD-R, preferring to read and copy directly from the CD-R that I send, so that the original documents will not accidentally be changed.

Any help would be appreciated.

A:Does Vista Microsoft Word Support Old Format Microsoft Word?

I'm assuming you're talking about the new office 2007? meaning word 2007?

If that is the case, then yes it does run older versions of word. In the sense that if you have a word document that was made and saved in Word 2003 it would work in 2007.

Just like when you make something in word 2007 you are able to save it as a Word 03-07 document so it works on both versions of Microsoft Word.

hey guys, i just got this up and running yesterday and when in operation (but not actually transferring files to or from it) the drive makes a slight humming noise. my older WD 'my book' never made this noise.

is this normal? like i said, i only got it running recently and i don't know if this is apart of normal operation or not. is there any way to check? i did a 'quick drive scan' using the inbuilt software and that returned no errors.

if i did a more thorough scan and checked for bad sectors would this answer my question and solve the problem?

thanks guys

alright my problem is that i have already used microsoft word 2000 for awhile now and its been fine, no problems whatsoever then about week ago it started doing a lot of crazy stuff when i opened it. this happens every single time. i open it and it states that
it is preparing to install microsoft word 2000 (i already have it installed) then it states that it must gather the required information. At first i thought it was an update so i decided to let it continue. when it was finished it said that "the feature you are trying to use is on a CD-ROM or other removable disk that is not availible. please insert the microsoft word 2000 disk and hit ok" alright the thing was it wasn't an update. and i couldn't find my word CD because it hasn't asked for one ever since i installed it. I then hit cancel and everything went away and about a minute later my microsoft word 2000 came up and it had no updates and was functioning fine but it was going about half the speed it usually does. Other than that there were no other problems and i continued with my work. The only thing that really bugs me is that this entire process takes about 5 minutes every time I start up... so its kinda of a pain... is there any way to get rid of this? thx to all... Peace Out

I am trying to upload a book on I have used breaks for new chapters, formatting the pages for chapter headings and regular text pages, but when I upload and let Create Space create the PDF, I end up with a few pages that have only one line of text on the entire page even though in Word, it is a full page of text. I have carefully gone through this entire formatting procedure three times now, and nothing changes. Can you steer me to how-to step-by-step directions for formatting a full-length novel with trouble shooting tips for various outcomes? I've been at this for over a week now. I can't afford to have Create Space do it for me, so please help!

My question is about formatting a book in Word 2000.
I am using Windows XP, 1 gig ram, 120 gig hard drive

The book is not my own, I am limited to certain formatting requirements.

The pages are one per page.

page numbers go: i through vii
then become regular number for 8-175 or so

I am struggling to have both these styles of page number in the same document.

The document must stay in one piece.

Secondly, once number are in place,
I need to have all even numbered pages formatted:
0.75" for top, bottom and spine crease edge (right edge)
All odd numbers:
0.75" for top, bottom and spine edge (left edge)
(publisher's specs)

This has previously been done manually in the document, but with many changes is now all over the place.

I notced that on the page breaks tab there was a type of break for odd/even pages....and I wondered if that might be helpful for this...but I don't know how to apply it.

All graphics that remain to be inserted are full page. I would like to be able to set up the formatting (margins, page numbers) first AND THEN continue to add images and edit pages. I would like to set it up so that no matter what is added or taken away to the bulk of the document or individual pages, the margins for each page are locked in....

What HAS been happening is...for example, I change the font to a serif one.. (which is necessary) and that bulked up the document...

Now many pages look like this

A:formatting a book in Word 2000

Hi aidanbon, welcome to TSG. Let's take your questions one at a time. In answer to your first question about page number formatting, you need to create a section break between page 7 and 8. Once you've done that, assuming your page numbers are in a footer, select the footer on page 8 and unclick the selection for "same as previous". You may have to hover over the header/footer buttons to see which one that is. Then you can change the page format to be numbers instead of Roman Numerals. It'll keep counting, but it will say 8 instead of viii.

For the margins, you need to create Mirror Margins. If you go into the Page Setup and look at the Margins tab, there's a dropdown box next to "Multiple Pages". You can change that Mirror Margins, which will change your Margin options to "inside" and "outside" instead of "left" and "right" to allow for binding.

Hopefully these changes will take care of your other formatting issues, but please post back if they don't. I've also skipped several steps for things like how to access the footer, or how to insert a section break, so please let us know if you need more details. Hope this helps.

I've written a book using a combination of Word and Open Office. I put it up on the net for my friends to read, so when I was writing it, I did it in the internet style, ie a double break after each paragraph, no indents etc.

Now someone wants me to print it out for them to read and I need to change it into the printed novel style, with only a single enter after each paragraph and the first line indented. There are about 500 pages so I really don't want to go through and make all these changes by hand.

Is there a shortcut I can use on either Word or OO? I can get the paragraphs to indent but I can't for the life of me see how to eliminate the gaps between paragraphs.

In one of the Bar's at bottom of screen there's an Icon with a book and a pen that periodically moves, in all my other word 2K .doc files this pen hardly moves, but in one Word .doc only, this pen moves constantly and the cursor vanishes -- the dark vertical bar -- which is rather annoying. I let it run and at end of about a half hour the pen was still going. Just began doing this constant running today.

Any ideas on why it only does this in one .doc and no others? Any help appreciated. Looked in a couple books, but found nothing which looked as if it related to fixing this problem.

A:Word 2000 Pen & Book Icon Problem

Hover over the icon for a couple of seconds and you should get a ToolTip telling you it's for "Spelling & Grammar status".

Is it a particularly large doc? Graham Mayor (MVP) states the following:

Automatic repagination will dramatically slow the editing of long documents. You can speed things up by using normal view (with repagination switched off from tools > options) and only switch back to print layout view when the document is nearly complete.

I hope I explain this properly. I sent my manuscript to my first editor who obviously had a "editing" program. When I got the book back I accepted or deleted her suggestions per red editing lines. Anyway she did a really bad job so I hired a new editor. The new editor wanted the already line edited version I went through(I also added 2200 words to the original) when she got it on her still had alot of red boxes(accept/delete) plus misc things. On my end, the manuscript I sent was a clean, red box free, copy. We went back and forth for two hours. What she was looking at was: on the right side of my word document there were boxes that said deleted and formatted. I see NONE of what she is talking about on my end. Is it the editing software the first editor had or is it the new editor's software. I finally sent her the unedited original version but when it comes back, not only will I have to do normal revisions but I will also have to do them word by word because I need to add the 2200 extra words I put in the edited version. I just don't want this to happen again, and I'd like to understand why she see''s things I can't see on my end. Thank you. PS I am very new to WORD.

For writing letters to travel by USPS, it would be very convenient to have an address book that I could just click on to copy a name and address to my letterhead. My OE address book has the mailing address but unable to make it go to the letter in Word without long series of clicks--faster to just type it all over again, which means to find it!
Can anyone give me a step-by-step and simple efficient way to prepare my mail?
Thank you.

If you are using Word, use the mail merge function. Go to tools > mail merge. The wizard pretty much goes through step by step and all you really have to do is select which address fields you want to go where in the document.

Hello everyone,
I run a small business,
I would like to ask a question,
I currently write the quotations to my clients in word 2002,
What I would like to achieve is:
When I type the address in the word document the address is automatically placed in my address book or outlook address book (I am running outlook 2003).
I have excel 2003 if this is any help,
The quotations are printed and sent via paper mail.
I think the answer lies with macros but I am not sure where to start.

All the best

My operating system is Windows 98. Somehow my Address Book file in Word Perfect 8 got corrupted. Now I can't gain access to Address Book to format envelopes. Please let me know what steps I can take to re - gain access to Address Book. with no luck! When I go to the start up menu, I click on Address Book under Corel WP 8 Accessories. Then Address Book appears on the task bar. Then I mazimize it and it opens. However, when I go inside Word Perfect and click on the Address book, the little hour glass forms, but nothing else happens. When I go to then format file and click on envelopes, I attempt to retrieve the Address Book to insert a name and address to format an envelope, the mouse freezes. I re-installed Corel Word Perfect, however this did not help. Since the file may be corrupt, perhaps a clean un installing, and then re -installing might help. Can I save the names and address in the Address Book in a file, and then un-install Corel Word Pefect ?

Could someone please help me do this because i am trying to make a book but i cant get MS word to be in a book form. If you know how to do this in MS Word 2000 could you please tell me.

Thanks in advance Steve

A:Solved: How do you make MS Word 2000 into book form???

If I understand what you actually want (and that is not guaranteed), the option you want is nothing to do with Word per se, but with the capabilities of your printer to print Page 1 on the first page, Page 2 on the reverse of the forst page etc (for spine binding).

For fold binding it gets more comples, but its more likely to be a funtion of your printer capabilities (if they exist) than Word.

For Word setup tips Google the following word string:

That will give you more help that can be provided in pages of posts here I suspect.

Here is a strange one. I have Microsoft Word 2000 on a computer running Windows XP SP3. I just began having a problem opening documents directly in Word. The documents will open but they are not right. For example, I have a document that is passworded out. Within Word, the document will open, but it does not ask for a password, and the contents of the document come up scrambled. Here is an excerpt of what it looks like:


This goes on for 20 pages.

However, if I go into Windows Explorer and open the document by double clicking on it there, it correctly asks for the password and opens fine. Weird, no?

I tried opening other documents from Word that do not have passwords. They open, but the documents include a bunch of formatting instructions that usually remain hidden. But from Windows Explorer they open fine. Here is an example:

Document opened with Windows Explorer

EVAN: English form of Welsh Iefan, meaning "God is gracious."

After recent full system recovery caused by one or more virus, I am unable to re-install Microsoft Word or Word Perfect on my Compaq Presario, which has Windows XP. Microsoft Word will sometimes start the process but then just stops, giving no indication of what steps to take next or what the problem is. Word Perfect seems to start the process each time but then gets hung up with updating what it describes as the SHFolder.dll. Have waited as long as 20 minutes for this update. The screen does show activity but it just never seems to get done. I cannot take the installation process past that point.

Any suggestions on how I can correct or cure this problem?

I recently purchased an ASUS Windows 8.1 64 bit computer.  I transferred my Microsoft Works Version 8.0 word processor and spreadsheet files from my old computer onto the new computer.  I just purchased the Microsoft Office 2013 Home and Student Edition (64 bit version) from an online vendor and installed the software onto my new computer. 
I have no problems opening my Works spreadsheet files in Excel.  However, when I attempt to open a Works word processor file in Word, I get gibberish.  I did some research online and found out that there is a Microsoft tool called Works 6-9 Converter which allows one to open Works files in Word.
I downloaded the Works 6-9 Converter tool from the Microsoft Support website and installed it on my PC.  However, when I subsequently attempted to open a Works word processor file in Word, a dialog box appeared with the error message "Word cannot start the converter Wks9Pxy.cnv" and the file did not open properly (i.e., I got gibberish).
I did a little more research online and found out that uninstalling the Works 6-9 Converter, then downloading and installing the Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Package, and finally reinstalling the Works 6-9 Converter may correct this problem.  I followed these steps, but unfortunately when I attempt to open a Works word processor file in Word, I get the same error message and the file does not open properly. ...

I believe that this can be done. First, move your cursor directly above the table, then record the macro. Use the arrows on your keypad and the shift button to select the rows that you want to delete and then point to edit, cut. Select the text the same way and change the formatting. Be sure the macro is saved in the "all active templates and documents file" so that you can use it on other files. Let me know if this works. If it doesn't, then your problem could be a corrupt file.

I recently changed an email address in Outlook. This address is included in a distribution list (MAPIPDL). However, when I sent out an email using this distribution list, it went back and used the old email address.

I went in and totally deleted the distribution list and the address of the recipient and then re-entered their address using wife's name first rather than husband's name first, thinking that might confuse it enough to use the corrected email. However, when I sent something out again using this distribution list, it went back and used the same old email address for this recipient.

There is no trace of that old email address left in the address book and I am dumbfounded as to how to get this corrected.

Thank you for your help.

What happens if you remove them from the "D" list and send an email out using it? As a last means delete them from your address book close Outlook then reopen it and add them back as a new contact. Open the distribution list and add their contact to the list and see what happens. Outlook picks the email address's from whatever is in the email area of the contacts details, so double check these details through the Contacts folder, rather than through the Distribution List.

A:Lost Microsoft Outlook e-mail and address book

8 more replies
Answer Match 47.88%

My employer has mandated that we use Lotus Notes for our email solution. How do I get the standard Microsoft default in PROJECT and/or WORD to recognize the NOTES address book vs requiring Outlook. I have set my internet defaults to NOTES. Specifics would be in trying to define RESOURCES in PROJECT or in using MS WORD/TOOLS/ENVELOPES and LABELS (probably anyplace in MS that selects an address book).

A:Using Lotus Notes address book from Microsoft Products

I don't think that is possible. Microsoft is very keen in making sure that if you use ms Products it needs to integrate with other MS Products. I could not find anything on that subject. Word does not have converters and does not recognize the names.nsf file. Now if you could convert that names.nsf into something like outlook express .pab/wab file that might be worth a Try. It may then be able to find the .pab file to use it as the address book.

I have Windows XP and do medical transcriptions in Word Perfect 9. I'm trying to create an icon on the Tool Bar in Word Perfect that will open my Corel Central Address Book and allow me to insert addresses into the letters I type. So far, I've gone to Tools, down to Settings, Customize, Edit.......then I'm lost. I don't know how to write out the path that will make the connection. Could you give me some help on this link? Many thanks!

A:Solved: Creating an address book icon on tool bar in Word Perfect

Hi MelindaWH

Welcome to Tech Support Guy Forums!

I am looking at Word Perfect 10, hopefully the steps will be similar.
The following places a Menu label named Address Book on the Menu bar (File, Edit, View, Insert, Format etc.)

Right click on the Menu bar,
Settings > Menus tab > Edit button

In the drop down window under Feature Categories: select Tools.
The Address Book should appear in the window below, click and hold on the Address Book, drag it up to the Menu bar and release it.

Or, highlight the Address Book item and click Add Menu Item.
If you end up adding more than one , while the Menu Editor is open, click on the extra menu items and drag them off the menu bar.

Close the Menu Editor.
Click the Address Book menu item and the Address Book should appear.

Let us know if that works for you or not.

Is there a way to count the number of occurrences of a word in MS Word?

If not, is there a downloadable text editor or something that can do such a thing?


A:Counting occurrence of a word in Microsoft Word?

Replace the Word with something like QQQ .. or the the original word .. And it will tell you how many.
Then you can replace it back to what it was ... or just don't save the edited file.
be sure to include the spaces before n after the search word.

Okay, well, I"m not sure if this is the right forum, but I can't decide where else to put it.

I am trying to make backups of important programs and files from my computer on CDs.

A couple of years ago, I downloaded the THEN free version of Microsoft Plus! for Windows XP. I have since then (earlier this year) found out that this is now a paid-for program. At that point, I figured I'd better make a backup of this program, too, since I do like some of the games, themes, and extra sounds and such that comes with it. I have my computer customized using a lot of this stuff.

Unfortunately, at the time I downloaded it, I had not yet learned the benefits of downloading and SAVING the entire file first, which would have included the installation setup. At the time I downloaded this program, I simply told it to "run" from the download link.

I found the folder for Microsoft Plus! in my program folder, but when I copied it to the CD, it copies it as seperate folders that (as far as I can see) can only be run from the CD. Plus, there are some things missing, like the extra fonts, sounds, themes, icons, ect. that I use........ these things are all in their separate "sound" folders, "mouse pointer" folders, ect. and seem to be entirely separate now from the MS Plus! folder in the programs list.

So, my question is, is there ANY way that I can somehow get the whole installation file onto my CD? Like I would have had I told the download to &... Read more

A:Making a backup of Microsoft Plus! on CD

I doubt it. This is why it's important to keep the installer. I always put the installer, in the program's folder. You're sure it's not there?

When you install a program, it puts parts in different places. You have the folder(s), you have stuff in the registry, and there's probably an invisible folder or two somewhere.
I would sent Microsoft an email, explaining the situation, and see if there's anything they'll do for you.
Good luck!

I'm making a guide for a friend (he lives in another state, and dont want to waste talking minutes on the phone) , and I want to make a table of contents so he can click where he wants. The only problem is I dont know how to make it that way. Any help is appreciated. If you're are confused on what I'm talking about I will try to explain it more to ur specifications.

A:Making a Table of Contents for a Word File

To do this depends on if you have got office 2003 or office 2007 Office 2003
Office 2003

Make sure you have got the formatting toolbar at the top. to do this go to

View > Toolbars

And make sure that formatting is ticked. Then you want to highlight the Document title with the curser and on the formatting toolbar (one with font and size settings) click the down arrow on the drop down menu to select the style. The Style menu is the one with &#8220;Heading 1, Heading 2, Heading 3 etc. Select heading 1 for the title. Then for the sub headings highlight them and select heading 2.

After you have gone this for all the headings

· On the Insert menu, point to Reference, and click Index and Tables.
· Click the Table of Contents tab.
· To use one of the available designs, click a design in the Formats box.
· Select any other table of contents options you want.
