Mail Merge to Microsoft Word
I have a user who is trying to use mail merge to merge
financial data in Excel into a Microsoft Word document.
The data is formatted for currency in Excel but when she
merges it into Word, it comes out as plain numbers with
many decimal places after it.
How do I get this data to hold it's currency formatting
when merging into Word?
Thank you very much!
I gather you're using XP. This is a new "feature" in mail

add a numeric field switch. You'll need to toggle the
field code for the field to change this. Depen...How do I select records were a field contains a key word??

Microsoft Word will only start in Safe Mode ever since Adobe Acrobat was
It seems related to Adobe's automatic installation of toolbar objects in
both Outlook and Word.
Word reports that there were problems starting Word and tries to recover
documents. It then wants to send an error message to Microsoft and then
refuses to open unless the Safe mode is chosen.
Anybody have this problem before? Any ideas on what the resolution is? I

My company has just switched over to Office 2007. One issue that came to
light this morning is that if a document has Page Break Before codes to force
new pages, the document appears fine if you've got Show/Hide turned on. If
Show/Hide is turned off, then the Page Break Before codes seem to disappear
and the pages appear overlapped.
Specifically, my document has pages 2, 3 and 4 set with Page Break Before
codes and all four pages show (overlapped) on page 1 when I turn off
Is there a setting that needs to be turned on to make the document appear

I was wondering if it is possible to link a word drop down list to an outside
source such as an Excel list or and Access table.
I have created 70+ locked templates that use some similiar drop down lists.
These lists include Judges, Lawyers, and Arbitrators names that can change
monthly. So i was looking for a better solution than me editing every drop
down list on each template.
I would like to be able to link a drop down list to say an MS Access table

In a word doc I need to copy several lines of text and paste them into one

You can either double click the cell or press F2 key to get into edit mode
for the cell, then the text pasted would all go into the cell.

...Why can't I search for Excel files knowing a word somewhere inside it?
Knowing that I had a spreadsheet with a sort macro in it somewhere that I
created about a year ago, I used the search feature of File Explorer in
WinXPPro to search for all files named *.xls, containing the word "sort" in
a folder with subfolders I knew it should exist in, in a range of dates.
The search did not find it, but after looking through my old emails I found
the name of the file, found it in one of my folders, and it was named *.xls,
it did contain the word "sort" as both a worksheet name and in the macro,
and it was in one of the folders I searched in, and...Question about Word/Works
Is the Word in Microsoft Works Windows 7 the same as Word 2002, though
slightly updated? Why does the interface look so different? It almost
resembles more of a cartoon of Word 2002. There's a flatness to its
appearance, and I don't like the flap off to the right. I want everything in
a streamlined window as in Word 2002.

When working in Word the active window frequently becomes invisible. I
can still type and use keyboard commands. If I do any of the following
the window reappears:
- cmd+tab off Word, then back on
- save the document
- select Window > document name from the menu bar
When working in Excel I have the same problem with the same solutions.
In both cases, this happens so frequently that both products are
essentially unusable. Any ideas?

I am using MS Office 2002. When I do a mail-merge from

though it is sending something, but the messages never
get sent. Does anyone know what my problem might be?

In a numbered list, I keep encountering random changes in indent settings
part of the way through a document. For example, if I have a) as the fifth
level set with indents at 2.0 and 2.25 at the outset, for no apparent reason,
in the middle of the document, word will suddenly start indenting level a) at
2.5 and 2.75.
I've spend hours fiddling with this, to no avail. It really destroys the
format of an outlined list when the same level is indented at random points
throughout the document.
