Greetings--new user; first post!
I have a rather sophisticated feature I'm trying to do in Word, but don't
know how to accomplish. I'm a technical writer and produce the user manuals
for our company. One product has sixteen different variations of the same
manual, 95% of which is the same with subtle differences peppered throughout
I have a new manager who has asked me to automate the structure of the
document so we have one manual that can be constructed as any one of the
sixteen variants on the fly. I don't know how to do this in Word. The ...Filter to select from various fields on opening a form
I have a form called TDC and want to filter data in the following fields on
opening the form: DiaryAction (text field); DiaryCategory (text field);
DiarySubCategory (text field); Company (text field); ContactType (text
field); DiaryItemClosed (a Yes/No field). At the same time, I want the
option not to select anything in each of these fields.
Please could somebody give me the steps to do this.
I am doing this in Access 2007, but am creating it as an Access 2003 database.

I have a large (30x20) grid of cells with data, and I want to extract
and then sum up certain numerals from this entire range. The catch is
that the data is mixed numerals and text, as you'll see below.
Here's an abbreviated 3x3 example, with a value in each of the nine

P1 A T
B V3 P4.5
If I just wanted to sum up the instances of "T" appearing, I could use
COUNTIF() for the entire range to come up with answer ("T" appears 2
times). Easy enough.
But, what I'm trying to accomplish is to sum up the numerals associated

This is the first time I have seen this happen.
After selecting different levels for section titles in a document I
generated the table of contents. Usually I can scroll through the table and
edit entries if needed, but this table the mouse pointer turns to the finger
pointer and when I click it takes me to that section title (normally I have
to hold the Ctrl key and click).
How can I change this so I can click in the table and not go to whatever

I am using this code to check for blank fields in BeforeUpdate:

It almost works, except the form goes ahead and closes anyway. The user
clicks the close button and the message box pops up if the field is empty,
they click OK and instead of keeping the form open and then setting focus on
the empty field, it closes the form.
How can I get it to interupt the close and keep the form open?

I do not understand how you think you have limited the size of the worksheet

www.stfx.ca/people/...extracting individual numbers from "ranges"
I'm trying to get EXCEL to extract stock prices quoted in individual cells
as 52-week ranges --e.g. 11.76-19.90-- and do the following calculation:

Obviously, this a problem because each cell appears to handle the range as
text or something. Is there are way to get EXCEL to handle the "text" (or
however else it is interpreting what's in the cell) as individual numbers?

I have a range that covers B5:XA160. For each row, data is entered in
11-cell groups: date, some numbers, description (a text value), more

many times certain descriptions appeared, because those were the only
ones we would see - or so the story went. Now, I need to extract the

Actually, I'm cheating a bit. I'm using SUMPRODUCT to return the
