Can typing macros be used in Word?
I was wondering, can I install (or program) text-typing macros into
Word 2007? The type of macros that I am looking for are the
only commonly found in other text editors, such as Emacs on Unix.
For example, if someone types the string "zfbi" into a document,
I want Word to immediately convert this string to "Federal Bureau
of Investstigation. Or, "zwww" should be replaced with "World
BTW, I have a master file of text strings (or macros) that I want
Word to recognize and replace with expanded strings. So, I'm
just wondering wha...Use Word 2007 to edit Outlook 2003?
I have Word 2007 from the teacher and student edition, so it did not come
with Outlook 2007. I use Outlook 2003 from an earlier package. I would like
to use Word as my email editor, but when I go to Outlook's Tools/Options/Mail
Format tab the boxes say Word 2003 and are grayed out; there is no option for
Word 2007, nor a way to click on Word 2003.
Is there a way to use Word as my email editor?
No. Version must match. It has been ever thus.

I just noticed when converting M4 to M8 that I have investment cash
transactions going all the way back to 1997. I guess one has to carry
investment transactions to determine when stocks are bought and sold. Is
there anyway to archive investment cash transaction. Seems like it would
decrease the size of the database?
Size, schmize. Who care? When 9GB DVD-R DLs are under 2 bucks and one can
buy 500GB disks for under $200, size isn't the issue it once was. Archiving
at best probably wouldn't shrink your file much and many of the long time
posters recommend against it.

I'm preparing an important manual for the Navy. I have a few tables in

properly. Thank you.

Whenever I paste Excel charts into Word, the fonts end up looking terrible.
Is there an easy solution? Pasting as a picture does not work. The only thing

then my chart is no longer a simple picture. Help!
