Word hangs when I try to edit text
Operating System: Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard)
I can open documents, but when I select text to edit, try to add a return or a shift, it hangs. All I can do is force quit. It's really annoying! All the updates are up-to-date, and it worked just fine the other day. <br><br>What's going on? And how can I fix it? <br><br>Thanks!
That sounds like a corrupt document.
Try saving it as a web-page, then quit, re-open, and re-save as a Word

I inserted a picture (a bitmap), cropped and sized it to fill the page

I then clicked on Insert Caption and got the usual panel offering
"Figure 1" as its label. Instead of simply inserting a paragraph in
Caption format as usual, it inserted a text box with the caption label
in it. When I typed the content of the caption, the following body

the list of values in the combo control and when I close this second form
the new value is recorded but again the form goes to the first record and
doesn't stay with the current one. Anyone any ideas where I can start

want to look for in this method.

...Using a Text / Data output as a cell reference
I am trying to use the end of a column as a divisor and need to convert what
i guess is text into an actual cell reference if possible.
In column A, say there are 13 data points ending at cell A13.
I then try to turn that into a cell reference with the formula
="A"&TEXT(COUNTA(A1:A13,),"0") I put this formula in B1
the output of this is then A13
what i need this to do, is be able to divide any cell by A13.
The reason I am going through all this trouble is that there are many
columns and each has a different # of data points.
I hope this is somewhat clear. Thanks ...TEXT TO SPEECH CHANGES

We migrated a set of enterprise global fields from 2003 to 2007. However,
some of the post migration changes to these fields can't be reflected into
project professional for all plans.
Example, we have a project outline code in 2003 called Portfolio, which is a
hierarchical set of values. In 2003, we allowed selection of non-leave node
and didn't allow multi-selection. After migration, we changed the settings of
the field to allow only leave node and multi-selection. However, these
changes are neither picked up by migrated project plans nor newly created

No, it's not a bug. It's a "feature" of XL using IEEE double precision

You can use ROUND() to round to zero if it's necessary.
