Select the cells across your page

Place check in "Merge cells"

Look under Format for the Merge and Center button

Firstly apologies if this is the incorrect forum but I was looking for
a general word forum and could not find one. Please point me to one if
I am trying to create a form where I want to specify what items need
to be filled in. (Review minutes from design reviews). I want to make
certain fields mandatory like the date, attendees and check list used
and want to block saving of the document with a warning until they are
filled in. Is there a way of doing this?
Also as a part of the review actions are filled in to a table.

Once I use the Text to columns feature in Excel, it seems there is no way to
turn it off.
Anyone know if there is a way to reset this so that newly pasted text will
not continue to get broken up (for example by the space delimiter)
Presently the only way is to exit Excel and restart Excel - then pasted text
all goes into one cell regardless of spaces.
Hope I explained that well enough
I may have been to hasty in making this assumption, it appears that the
problem I described below is only happening on one workstation - this may
indicate that the Excel Registry keys are in need of...What is 'Align Text to Base Line Guide'?

Sounds like they will have to involve OCR, which works fine for standard fonts but
