Hello Everyone!
Im am in desperate need for you help! Im working on a project for my company. Im designing a form, the form is 2 pages. On the first page there is a table that we fill in, is it possible that when we fill in a spot on the first table, on the next page it will fill in the same information at the same time without having to re fill it in??

If this doesn't make sense, please email me or post! Thanks so much! Happy Holidays

Hi all,

I have created a small Excel spreadsheet that fills roughly half of an 8.5x11 page in landscape. I want it to fill the entire page, ie larger cells. The only way I found to do this is to manually set the cell height and width. "Fit to page" seems to be useful only to shrink, not enlarge. Is there an easier way to do this? Thanks!

Creating a web page using frontpage2000. Inserted a photo then did a thumbnail on it. Fine. But when I clicked on the thumbnail, the photo filled up the whole screen. Why ?? How do I get it back to its thumbnail size ? Even the back tab, or arrow, up on the tool bar is covered up by the photo. I read up on the image size but I couldn't relate to a small photo blowing up to fill a 15 inch monitor.

Hello everyone

The following question was asked way back in 2004 but I can't find the answer, and I've got exactly the same problem today! I would be really grateful for help with this - I have copied and pasted a long article coming in at 288 pages and I want to reduce it to 144 pages!

Please help a humble, non-computerized soul out. I have pasted 161 pages of
text into word from an e-mail. I want to print it out, but each line only
goes halfway across the screen and then begins a new line.

The borders are maximized, and it should really be reduced to only 80 pages
in length, but I can't figure out how to make the pasted text fill the
document (side to side) without going through it, line by line, and deleting
the empty spaces (they seem to be the result of hitting enter).

I've done this before with short e-mails and usually I just go through, line
by line, and delete the spaces. But this time, it will take me hours and
hours to do that. There has to be a way to make the text fill the page...
please help!!!

Thank you!

A:Pasted Text Won't Fill Page - Please Help

I suspect that the 'copy' is also coping the 'end of line markers' off the original line length ... past your 'copies' into a non-formating writing program like MS Notepad.

Notepad will strip out any and all format except, I believe, paragraph returns. I may be wrong on the last bit. Then copy-n-paste into Word, or whatever you're using.

You will, however, have to reformat the whole thing to match the original.

Now, after saying all that, you could, if using MS Word turn on the 'formatting controls' so you can see where & what format has been set, then, once again you will have to go through the whole document to check the format to the way you want it.

Either way, I think you's in for a long haul, good luck, hoped that helped.

I'm creating a questionnaire form in Word 2010 with about 5 or 6 fields. Using the developer tab I have been able to set all of these up fine and its working however I would like one field to be automatically populated with the date of that particular day.

Currently the date field uses the date form option so you are given a drop down calender to choose the date or the option of selecting 'Today'. I would like this field to automatically show the 'today' date and then give the option of changing it if necessary.

I have a standard form that must be filled out & mailed for each patient in order for me to get reimbursed. I have scanned the form to a jpg format & would like to be able to "fill in the blanks" with Word 2007, print out the completed form & retain a copy on my PC for each patient. Can that be done? This would save me a lot of trouble.
Any help appreciated.

A:Word 2007 how do I fill in & print a form?

Hi Ron,
It can't be done if you've scanned it as just a picture, but if you're able to scan it with optical character recognition (OCR) then you might be able to copy it into Word or edit the jpg itself. You can download IrfanView, which is a free graphics program and it has an OCR plugin. But if the form is not very long or very complicated, you'll probably have better luck just recreating it in Word. OCR can be unreliable depending on the quality of the scan and you may do just as much work cleaning it up as you would retyping it. And of course the best option would be if you could contact the form originator and get it electronically. They may already have it in Word which would save a ton of time. Hope that helps.

I'm running Microsoft Office 2003 under Windows XP Pro SP2, with all known patches/updates installed.

I recently completed a document in Microsoft Word 2003 and decided to make some changes.

I created a border around some text. I highlighted the contents of the box and then I moved the mouse up to the "fill color" tool on the menu. I clicked the tool and no colors appear in the drop down menu. The "fill color" tool on the menu shows yellow, but you cannot actually click yellow and use it fill the box.

When I click the "fill color" tool and the drop-down menu opens, the area below the "no fill" option shows empty white boxes with no color. This is rather weird behavior. I used the color option about one month ago and it worked fine.

I don't recall adding any programs to my computer or installing any updates [I don't know if any were installed automatically].

Can someone assist me in restoring this option as I need it. I have a project which HAS to be completed and I really need this option.

I have a form set up in a table and I would like to have the text fit into the cell and not go below the cell. I have set the maximum length of the field but this does not really work for me. I have set the row to an exact height so it does not expand. It does not limit the number returns. So, you can hit the return key the text disappears in the cell (goes beyond the length of the cell)

Setting the maximum length does not allow be to fill the cell completely. If you type all caps the maximum length maybe 100. If set to this then all lower case letters will only fill half the cell.

Is there a way to only allow the user to type in the fixed sized table cell and fill it up completely without the text disappearing beyond the border of the table cell using VBA or some function in Word?

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.

This may be a dumb question, but is there some simple way
to select a column of about 400 entries in order to do a
"fill series" after typing in a formula in the first cell?

It doesn't work if I move to the first cell and then hit
"edit" and "select column". The only way I can get it to work is to click on the first cell and hold the mouse button down and scoll down thru all 400 entries. This gets time consuming if you are doing a lot of formulas that apply all the way down your 400 entries. Is there some way I can type a formula in the first cell and have it fill down all 400 without having to wait to scoll down that far?

A:Word Spreadsheet: column select for fill series

Just move the cursor over the top border of the required column until it turns from the "I" bar into a black downward pointing arrow, and then click. This selects the whole column. It's a little bit fiddly to get the cursor to change - easiest to start below the top border and move slowly upwards.

I want to auto-fill a Word 2010 Table from a Access 2010 Query. Here is what I mean:

I have created an Access 2010 database file called “MasterTestEquip.accdb” with a “MasterTestEquipList" Query. Using the Word Merge function in Access, I created a 5-column, multi-row Table in Word 2010 with the following Column names:

I want to be able to enter in the Identification # (e.g., 469-0068-601) and have the row auto-fill in the other information (Description, Manufacturer, Model & Cal Due). I have been trying to get the Mail Merge function to do this but I am stuck. I used “Insert Merge Field” and selected the appropriate name for each column. When I do a Preview, I can click on the right and left arrows and the information in the row steps through each one of my Identification numbers in my recipients list and the corresponding information is correct, but this is not what I want. I need to be able to manually enter in the Identification # and have the additional information auto-fill in.

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?

This question is about using "Page {PAGE} of {NUMPAGES}."

I've read many solutions for this online and in MS's help files. None of them are working, and it really has me perplexed because I consider myself an advanced user.

My document is a book:

The first page of my book is a cover page. It shouldn't be counted in page numbering.
Beginning on the second page, my book has a TOC and then 9 chapters.
The TOC and each chapter are set up in their own sections. (I do this because I include the chapter's name - which is the section name - in the footer along with page numbers. It also facilitates creating the TOC)
I want the TOC to be counted as Page 1
All of that works fine for the {PAGE} page number. To accomplish it, I told Word to start counting page numbers from 0, and I suppressed displaying the number on the Cover. Then for subsequent pages I selected "Continue from previous section."
My issue is that I really want to show both the current page and the total number of pages ("Page {PAGE} of {NUMPAGES}") in the footer.

When I try that, {PAGE} displays correctly, but {NUMPAGES} shows one too many. It is obviously counting the cover page.

Evidently what I did in #5 above only affects the count for {PAGE} and not for {NUMPAGES}.

All over the web I find the simple solution of using a formula field for {NUMPAGES} as follows:

Actually, I think that would do the opposite of what I want. I would probably have to... Read more

A:Solved: Word 2007 Page Numbering: Make {NUMPAGES} start counting from Page 2?

I was just messing with the same issue and found a solution:


This may look exactly like something you tried already but here is the difference:

Instead of typing in the curly braces ( { ) manually, you have to hit "Ctrl-F9" to insert a field, then do the same for the braces around "NUMPAGES". You wind up with a field inside a field. That way it interprets the "NUMPAGES" as your document property, returns a number like "42", then the next field takes the equation "= 42 - 1" and returns "41". If you don't use "CTRL-F9" to enter the "NUMPAGES" field, it sees the first curly brace and stops, seeing it as a syntax error.

Hope it works for you! It worked for me!

When you want to stop page numbering, create another section break at the end of the last numbered page in that section..Remember to enable/insert or not page numbering as appropriate for each section.

On my old computer, I would go to Ebay and begin typing in the first letter of what I wanted to look at, and several words would appear that began with that letter (items I've looked at before), and then I could just click on the one I wanted. Now I have a new computer, and it doesn't do that anymore so I am constantly retyping in the words.

I'm thinking there must be a simple place you go to turn this feature on, but I have no idea where/how. Can someone help me, please? Thanks.

In Word, I want to add automatic page numbering to my document. But suppose I have some X number of title pages that I don't want numbered. How can I have no numbers or headers at all on pages 1 through X, and then start the page numbering only on some arbitrary page X+1, and have the numbering offset, so that page X+1 is numbered p.1, page X+2 is numbered p.2, etc.?

A:How to start Word's page numbering on a different page?

a horrible question

you're wanting to use section breaks to define specific parts of your document
- have some sections without page numbers, then some with page numbers
- and the page numbers starting at a specific number on a specific page and going in order from there
right ?

see Dreamboat's webpage for some initial info.

your first section should have the unnumbered pages
your next section should have the numbered pages

you create a section break by clicking on 'insert' from the menu bar and choosing 'break'
normally use 'next page' when it asks what kind of break you want
it helps to have the option selected to show all characters, marks etc so you can see where the breaks are (tools, options, formatting marks)

you format the numbering through page numbering, also in the 'insert' section (i don't use this option)
through the header/footer options - you can insert a page number, insert the number of pages, or format the page number (ie where it starts etc)

this is one of the most frustrating things to master in word (in my opinion ) because it seems to have it's own logic
- once you get the hang of it, it works well
is a very simple example [forum doesn't allow .doc attachments)
- no page number on page one
- page number on page two, starting at 1

note: when printing, your printer sees all pages without knowing what page number you gave it

Hi - quick question:

At work, when I go to insert a new page in a Word document, it places the new page (page 2) above the first page, instead of placing it below. When I go to a two page layout view, the second page is on the left, instead of on the right.

I have a problem. My office has many labs, but from a single lab when someone prints a word document onto a particular printer, it gives out an extra blank page. This blank page is not seen in the print preview unlike which was discussed in the previous forums.

This problem has been encountered only for word documents but not for .pdf files. I have tried even with a single page of word printing, it gives out another blank page. Can anyone resolve this problem. I dont think its the problem with the printer because it works well with other labs and .pdf files from this lab too. Anyways its a HP Laserjet 5SiMX.

A:Word document prints an extra blank page but that blank page is not seen in preview

Is the printer in question the default printer for the PC in that lab? Print preview shows how the document would appear based on the settings of the default printer - using another printer can cause changes such as this.

I am trying to do something which I found very simple in Word 2003 and 2007, but which is stumping me in Word 2010 even after half an hour.

I have a four page document, nothing fancy in it, just text, a few bullet points etc. I now want to add the following to each page:

-- in the upper right hand corner, in 9 point Calibri font, underlined, this header: "John Smith Bio, page [x] of [y]" where x is the current page number and y is in this case always 4.

(If making it automatically know there are 4 pages is a stretch, I can live for now, as I'm in a hurry, with "John Smith Bio page [x] of 4")

It would take quite a while to describe everything that I've tried. All the templates, wizards etc seem to let me do everything except what I want. What look like they are blue fields in Design mode don't seem to let me type anything in them.

Could someone please take pity and just tell me, step by step, what to do? I'd be very grateful. This is rather time-sensitive.

To view problematic fax cover,


How about a before-print macro that:

Ctrl-g to go to page 2
Hit backspace once to get to the bottom of page 1
Selects all from there down and deletes

A:page getting cut off in word when printing

Might be no use to you, we had random print problems in our office, we still don't know what the true cause was but switching the printers off and back on before going home at night cured it, it seems the printer memory does not completely clear and through continuous use they get 'confused'.

This might be completely useless to you, but worth a try before shelling out 299.99!

The other thing to watch would be your roaming profiles, ensure users don't change profile by selecting locally stored ones instead of their roaming ones, this can cause headaches and all sorts of random problems.

There is no automatic way to do that. You can set a different first page, but the i ii iii is the killer. Im pretty sure office 2007 can do this, but Ive never seen anyone do it with 2k.

The simplest way would be to have 2 different documents. First one has different first page with no header, then the i ii iii numbering, and the second document has the page x of y numbering.

I am using word 2003. Is it possible to set the page default style... for example I would like word have the page number and the file name automatically in the footer every time I start a new document?


A:word page default

Probably the easiest way to do this, but also the most dangerous I should think, would be to add your footer to Word's template. I say it's dangerous because is pretty easily corrupted (especially if it's modified) and can lead to some pretty major user headaches.

If you think that won't be a problem, do a search for (I think the default location is [system_root]\Documents and Settings\[user_profile]\Application Data\Microsoft\Templates). Once you find the file, right-click it and select Edit from the app-menu. Apply to the document any changes you want to see universally, then save and close.

However, I wonder if a macro couldn't do the same thing. If it could, that'd be the way to go in my opinion.

The reason I think a macro would be the best way to go is that you could apply it when you wanted using even a simple keystroke, rather than it being the absolute default. Unfortunately I don't have much use for macros so I never learned how to do any robust coding, but there are plenty of folks in this community who can.

You didn't mention which version of Word you are using, but my reply applies to 2003 and 2000.

I write novels using Word 2003, and I insert Section Break after the title page to start the page numbering of the new section. Then, after accessing View/Header or Footer, I type in my last name/title and close. Next, I click on Insert/Page Numbers and indicate where I want them to appear, that I don't want the first page of the section numbered and -- this is important to you -- click on FORMAT. Down at the bottom, click on Start With (which deselects Same as Previous Section) and confirm that the appropriate page number appears or change it to whatever you need. Click OK and OK to get out, and your section and page numbers should work for you.

Say I'm doing a resume. The left margin is 1.6" and the right is at 1.0".

In the left margin I want to insert a keyword, like Product Management, or Logisitcs just to the left of the body, to act as a subject guide for the reader. They can hop around to what they want without having to wade thru the whole doc. Most people if they use these keywords at all... place them as a line entry just above where new subjects start. This takes more room and it's not eye-appealing.

How do I insert these keywords? Without disrupting the doc.

A:MS Word '07 - page layout option?

Make each line that needs a keyword into a paragraph (may have to adjust paragraph spacing in the paragraph dialogue afterwards). Then adjust the left margin to a size that will accommodate the key word. Not a very elegant solution, but I'm guessing you don't have too many keywords to insert, so it shouldn't be too time consuming.

A:Scanning a page for word document

I’ve been generally pleased with the progress of OCR as far as accuracy. The versions that come with scanners aren’t able to handle odd formatting like forms. But my experience has been pretty good with accuracy in plain text. You need forms capable OCR software if the formatting isn’t pretty straightforward.

Most OCR works best with black and white rather than grayscale, but whatever you are using try the other. Some integrate and don’t even give you a choice. You can also increase the resolution if you have the choice. A few years back my OmniPage OCR liked 300 PPI, but my latest Abbyy seems to accept higher.

Other than that I don’t know much you can do.

Thanks for any help anyone can give me.


A:Setting default page in Word

Tools menu, Options, File Locations tab, Documents path

You can edit and browse to where you want Word to look.

Example, I have:\My Documents\Word_DOCS
\My Documents\Excel_XLS
\My Documents\PowerPoint_files
Then I set the document path for each Office Application and it opens/saves there.

Is there a way to remove page breaks from Word 2013 so that it is a continuous sheet like WordPad ?
Those breaks get especially annoying when using a long continuous table .

A:Word 2013 no page breaks

I don't think you can stop automatic page breaks as they are required to print but if you change the view to 'Web Layout' you'll not see them on the screen unlike 'Page Layout'

Im a bit confused in the use of the page layout view in Microsoft Word. I have correctly set the paper size to letter(8.5"*11"), but when I place a piece of paper on my monitor the size and dimensions of the paper do not match the screen at 100% zoom. the paper on screen is much larger than the real paper. And if I choose less zoom (90%) to match the width of the real paper to the one on screen, the paper on screen is a bit longer than the real paper.

The sizes are not meant to match up.

Actually, Windows doesn't even have the facilities to take monitor size into account automatically. You can set the dpi manually to a custom value, but that will break many apps that depend on the WIndows default of 96.

Well, some people I my work have merged 100's of short documents in a veeeeeery large one (near 20000 pages). The problem is that Word XP only shows me the first 999 section numbers and the first 9999 page numbers. Although I can move through all the document, If I try to access to a Section/Page higher that these, I only get *** as Section #, and ****/**** as page #.

Is there a way to uncap that limit?

The chances of that document surviving long are low anyway.

Corruption in such a large document would be very likely, and its a highly unwise (not to say unprofessional!) thing to do.

My professor cannot get his page layout to switch from Landscape to Portrait. We go through the motions, but when he goes to print or view, it stays in Landscape mode! Anybody have any ideas?

Word: From the File menu, select Page Setup... click portrait

Confirm also that the printer has not been setup to print in landscape mode as well.

So I'm currently working on this paper using ms word 2007. I understand the whole ideal of page numbering where you go to the insert ribbon, go to page numbering a viola, the pages are numbered.

But, here is my dilemma. I have like 20 pages, but I only want pages 1- 15 numbered and I've tried everything to go about doing so including manually numbering the pages which, only makes the number the same on every page.

I want to know if there is anyway to only number like pages 1-15 and leave the rest unnumbered?

Your help will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

When I try to copy and paste text from a web page to Microsoft Word, and Word Pad I only get an "icon". It is a small square that contains a likeness of two red curved lines facing each other. I have no problem pasting to notepad. I am using Windows Xp and MS Word 2000. this is very aggravating to me.
Can anyone please tell me why this is happening and if there is a way of pasting into these documents.
