Does Word have a command that compares to WordPerfect Advance?
I want to advance text to a specific position within the line that is
independent of the number of characters that precedes it. Tab will not work
as it measures from the preceding character. WordPerfect has a command:
"Typesetting" "Advance" that I use for this. Is there a comparable command
in MS Word?
Word does have an Advance field, mostly for compatibility with documents
imported from WordPerfect. If you use the \x switch, it will position the
next character at the specified location. According to the help topic on the
Advance field, the \x switch &qu...reserved words

HELP ! This should be simple for someone but not me. I
used to have a number on the left side of my screen when
in my in-box that would tell me the total number of e-
mails in my inbox (normally around 200-300). This was not
JUST the new ones which are reflected on the folders
line. It was at the bottom of the page and would change
immediately if I deleted or added one.
I lost the number and want it back. How do I do that?
Thanks for any help anyone can give !

I have an issue with some .doc files when opening in Word 2007. In some
cases the word count in the status bar is different of the word count of the
"Word Count"- window (CTRL+SHIFT+G) or the word count in Word 2003
Example file: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=79595
Word 2007 (status bar) show 61019 words
Word 2007 (Word count window) show 61010 words
Word 2003 also show 61010 words

seems that I have this problem only with .doc files but not with .docx files.

Operating System: Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard)
After installing the 12.2.4 Office update, I am unable to open some Word files that I had password-protected with an Open File password. How can I open? Thanks
Basically, "you can't".
Sorry, the other passwords are crackable, but "Password to Open" is
effectively the encryption key. The entire file is encrypted, and unless
you have the correct password, you can't get it open.
However, are you sure you are not attempting to open files that were
