Strange behaviour: show/hide formatting symbols reveals old change
In Word 2007, I'm getting some strange behaviour in a document that was
authored by someone else. Track Changes is switched off, all changes have
been accepted, and everything looks as it should in whichever view I happen
to choose (Print Layout, Draft, whatever). But when I click to show
formatting symbols (in whatever view) a whole lot of old changes - deletions
AND insertions, ostensibly all accepted, and from before the document got to
me - appear in the document, making it quite tricky to work with. These old
changes are impervious to anything I try to do with them

Is there any other way to do this?
please elaborate the process.
The easiest way would be to select all completed cells and format the text
blue when you first open your spreadsheet. To automate the process would
require the incorporation of a date/time cell, conditional formatting, VBA
or combination (depending on existing data).

I am trying to eliminate the spaces between digits in Australian

this that appears to work. I now want to call this function from a

I am trying to find out what the RGB composition is of a custom color

Operating System: Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard)
Whenever I hit an apostrophe, Word automatically changes the font of my document. Even with autocorrect turned off this happens. How can I make it stop?
It sounds like you may have smart quotes turned on and the font you are using does not contain them so it switches to one that does. Turn off smart quotes or change fonts.

Is there a way to check for a value at detail-onprint, if value true, stop

I have a check slip report with text box that is aligned to the 'pay to'
field. So, if the recipient's name is very long, it will grow to text under
the line. What I want is if the name is long enough to expand to the next
line, is push up the textbox so the second line is on the check line. Hope
you understand what I am trying to say here. :)

Not directly - width is a property of the column, not individual
You may be able to achieve the effect you want by merging cells.

Rules are set to fire when the e-mail is received. Only OOF is set to fire

Do yourself a favor and disable forwarding to the internet. Give them
