Automatic shift of cursor while typing

I using Windows Office Word 2007. Often when I'm typing a document the cursor 
 automatically shifts from where I'm typing to another place in the document 
where I've previously typed. 

For example, I might be typing "the quick brown fox jumped the log" and 
while I'm typing, say, "fox", the cursor will jump to the middle of a 
sentence previously typed on that page. 

Has anyone else had this problem and, if so, can you tell me how to correct 
the problem?

Thanks.

Is there a reason why my Outlook 2000 doesn't automatically place meeting request on my calander?
I can get an email with cryptic information, but that's it. The same email address, when opened in Outlook Express, has the meeting request as an attachment. But, I really want it to auto my calendar, which it doesn't. Also, sending out meeting requests doesn't seem to work on other calendars either. Tried running hotfix, Hotfix didn't see a correct version of Outlook. And, pretty sure the license code for Office and Outlook 2000 was a bogus one. Just used it to get it up and running... ...

Can't hide far right columns:"Shift objects off sheet"??
I've got some constants and such in the far right-most columns, where my average user wouldn't have any need of going. Just to add an extra measure of safety, though, I wanted to either hide the columns or set the column width to something like 0.1. Excel won't let me do either - the error message is "Can't shift objects off the sheet." But there are no "objects" - just values in cells. What am I looking at? Is there another way to accomplish this? Ed Which version? Should be no problem in XL2003. BTW: Far right is not a good solution since it inflat...

Shading between lines chart type.
Currently I have consturcted a chart that shows a line for each column. The chart has a median column, upper 80% column, upper 95% column, lower 80% column, and a lower 95% column. This works just fine using Excel. XlChartType.xlLine Now I would like a line showing the median, with shading up to the upper 80% and down to the lower 80% of one color, and shading from median to upper 95% and down to lower 95% another color. Since the upper 95% is always greater than upper 80% the shading showing the 95% levels would only show up between the 80% and 95% levels. The xl3DStacked type almos...

Outlook crashes when typing recipient
Every time I try to send an email message in Outlook, it crashes as soon as I start typing in the recipient address. Does anyone know what could be causing this and how to fix it? I do not have any Add-Ins installed. Thanks. It would be helpful if you provided at least some basic information such as: 1. Outlook version 2. Mail account type 3. Information store 4.

Automatically Sort Tables
Is there a way to set a condition to automatically re-sort data as it changes on a table? Example: I have 3 column: A) Sales agents B) Items Sold C) Total Sales in Dollars the data is being imported into those colums from various sites and worksheets.

Automatically monitoring a file written by a 3rd party program.
I need to monitor a 3rd party program that is running on our computer system. This 3rd party program does not output the data I need in any convenient method like a COM port or socket. The only thing it does is output records to a log text file and this can happen at the rate of many records per minute. So I am thinking about having my program read the 3rd party program's log file once a minute. The program would read in the new message entries and then use the data. Obviously I can keep track of the old file position and jump to that point the next time I read the file. Is there any...

how to prevent a formula in a summary sheet from automatically updating when a row is addedto the referenced sheet
