Stop Word 2007 updates to fields before printing

I do not want Word 2007 to update the fields before I print a particular 500 
page document so I have cleared the checkbox (Word Options/Display/Printing 
Options). Even with this check box cleared, Word still goes through the 
motions of updating the fields. I need this option turned off or it takes 
several minutes just to print one page. Is there another location to turn off 
the update fields in Word 2007?

You can lock the fields to prevent them from updating. To lock all fields in 
the selection, press Ctrl+F11. (Later, if you want to unlock the selected 
fields, use Ctrl+Shift+F11.)

Note that if you have fields in the headers and/or footers, you will have to 
select and lock those fields separately.

Word documents should contain an embedded dictionary
When I write documents with many proper names, I add the names to the custom dictionary to permit Word to spell check the names throughout the document. That said, I would rather not keep proper names in my custom dictionary where I keep what I consider to be "global" or cross document language additions like acronyms etc. Also, when coworkers view my document in Word on their machines, it flags the names as misspellings since my custom dictionary is stored on my machine (needless to say it's not real pleasant trying to share and manage a document and external cust...

Median in Excel 2007 pivot-tables
HI, I am working on pivot table for data analysis, where I need to show the median. While working on this I found that "Median" is not supported in pivot tables. Is there any way I can use median function in pivot tables? Best Regards, Venkataramana AFAIK, you can't alter pivot tables, but you can certainly copy/paste special (perhaps a new sheet), and then do whatever you want to it (perhaps in an adjacent column). -- Ryan--- If this information was helpful, please indicate this by clicking ''Yes''.

Graphs in Other Files do not Update
Hi, I have a main file with graph (AP.xls) and several sub files with graphs that are linked to the main AP.xls file.

HOWEVER, when i open the other sub files, they aren't updated. HOWEVER, if the sub files are opened together with the main AP.xls file, and I insert the new column, t...

A few days ago while trying to balance one of my accounts, Money would start hanging and I had to kill the process and created a LRD file. My file is only 12MB and it has been fine until recently. I am using Money 2007. I should have put my system specs. I have a P4 3.8GHZ w/ 2GB RAM running XP Pro.

blocking specific text in Word
Hello- I am creating a document for a client. There will be certain areas that will be locked and certain areas where my client will need to input information. They wanted to know if there is a way that when their team types in their information that they can block out specific words so they wouldn't be able to type them in. For example, they have a long list of products and only want the client to be able to input certain product words but block out other ones. Is there anyway to do this? Thanks!

recipient policy stopped working

Quicken can't find my 2007 Money file

Stop all macros
I have a button on a form, which should do different things depending on 1. The data contained within the current record; 2. Whether the current record is a 'new record'; 3. Whether the current record is the first record in the form. On click, an embedded macro is initiated. Each step in the embedded macro has a condition and a corresponding 'RunMacro' action. All the conditions are mutually exclusive, and each sub-macro has a final step of 'StopAllMacros'. So the embedded macro should trigger one, and only one sub-macro. However, it appears that what is act...

Crosstab query and Lookup field problem
Hi there, I'm trying to create a Crosstab query that shows a Class of Business on the rows, Status along the columns and a total number of Projects as the values. The trouble is, the Project Status field is a lookup from another table, so though the Crosstab query works, along the top it shows 1, 2, 3, 4 etc as the column headings instead of Investigating, Estimating, On Hold...etc. I can't seem to find a way around this, can anyone help?

Money 2004 and automatic portfolio updates
I have Money configured to automatically download statements from my brokerage account for my 401(k). It downloads the statements correctly and notifies me for review. When I click on "Update my positions", though, I'm expecting it to record the new positions as purchases. Instead, it just increases my positions and decreases my cash holdings in that account, so in my monthly report I have an "Unassigned Expense" for the cash deduction, even though it's not really an expense. This also screws up my overall performance metric since it's not properly adjusting my...

Printing business cards: wrong size
I am using Publisher 2007 SP1 on Vista Ultimate x64. The printer is HP Office Jet 1140xi. I want to print business cards on Sigel LP798 2x5 cards per page. Publisher "knows" that the size of a card is 8.5 x 5.5 cm. However the printed cards have h=5.3 cm, the cards in row 5 are only partially printed living a bottom margin of 3.2 cm. This happens also when I print in PDF. When printing from other programs the bottom margin is under 1 cm. I modified the height to be 5.7 cm. Result: it prints only 2x4 cards. What am I doing wrong? Thank you very much, Are you sure of your printer...
