...mail merge to Word
Does anyone know why I can't get my zip codes in Excel to merge into mailing
labels in Word 2000? On the first worksheet I get a very few to merge, the
rest are blank. On the second worksheet where I've copied and pasted some
random names and addresses from worksheet 1, the zip codes do merge but they
all have a decimal and a zero at the end. I have gone to Format and chosen
Text, but that doesn't seem to help. I've even cleared and re-entered all
my zip codes. That made no difference either. Does anyone see a clue where
I'm going wrong? TIA
...Problems with Word and Adobe Distiller
OS X question:
I have installed Adobe Distiller, and when I open Word, it hangs for about
20 seconds and then places Adobe icons on my toolbar. Evertime I go to pen a
file or create a new file in Word, Word hangs again for 15 to 20 seconds. It
is driving me crazy. Removing Distiller does not help.

Sure. One easy way is to copy to Word, select and choose Format-Change case.
However, you can do this using a macro, which you might want to store in
your personal.xls file.

How can I get my browser to choose the spread sheet from Open Office instead
of Microsoft Works' when trying to open an XLS file?
As it stands the latter automatically opens it.
Windows Vista Home Premium SP2, 32 bit and IE 8.
The reason: the file doesn't open properly as is, IOW a calendar shows up in
sections of four and incomplete as such.

I opened a word file I already worked before and updated and saved it - it is
normal so far. After keeping working for a while, when I tried to save it, I
got a message saying I cannot save it. The existing file name, while it is
still open and i am working now, is suddenly changed to "xxxx.tmp". I had to
save as with other name.
I used MS Word 2007 Enterprise and worked under 2007 Office Groove.
Any comments are welcome.

Could anyone tell me what Microsoft's "Best Practice" is for a company to

this out to the company - does best practice remain the same as in Word 2003?
Or has it changed with the inclusion of the default document settings and

I have a pop-up modal form where in design view the right edge of the form
is right next to the most right field on the form. When I open the form
there is about 1-2 inches space between the right field and the right edge of
the form. How I get rid of this extra space?
In form design view, drag the right edge of the form closer to the text box.
I refer to the "box" containing the form, not the form's width property.
Access seems to ignore the width property if it has extra space to fill.

I have just discovered that when you double-click a Word file attached
to an appointment item (although I imagine it will be the same for other
items too), Outlook does not open the actual file, but takes a copy and
puts it in the temp folder and opens that.
This is a pain as it mucks up some of the automation coding I have done,
but what's worse is that the copy doesn't seem to have the custom
properties I have set.
Is there any way of forcing Outlook to open the original, instead of a
copy? Failing that, any ideas why the custom document property would

In earlier versions of Word, there was a check box in Page Setup for "Mirror

Margins tab of Page Setup.

I would prefer to have separate folders for Excel & Word. Is this possible,
advisable or not advisable & how do I do this?
Create 2 different folders like Excel and Word under My Documents and make
these folders as default file locations.
In Excel: Tools – Options – Default File Location.
In Word: Tools – Options – File Locations – Documents.
All your future files will by default go to these folders.
Segregate your present files by clicking File Type in Windows Explorer and
put into the appropriate folders.

In Word 2003 you can define a new number format list with Number style
(None). It is not possible in Word 2007 because the OK button is not
activated when (None) is choosen.
To create a list like this is useful if you want to repeat a text on every
line in a list without a number.
My work around for this time was to do a list in Word 2003 version and then
copy it into Word 2007.
I look forward to get an answere from someone out there.
It is true that you can't do this for simple lists in Word 2007, but you can
do it for multilevel lists; see
