Please Help! Spanish has hijacked my Word 2007 spell checker!

I have saved (repeatedly in existing and new blank documents) all my settings 
to English, US.  However, my spell checker is marking everything in red.  
When I look at it, the spell check suggests spanish spelling of the words.  
The spell checker says Spanish, US.  I go back, all setting say English.  
Default language is set to English.  I don't know what else to try.

Make sure to turn off the "Detect language automatically" option in Review tab | 
Set Language. Note that once the language has changed in a document, you may 
have to select the whole document and manually apply the correct one by using 
the Language dialog box.

Printing problem from Excel 2007
Greetings, I am having an issue with printing from Excel 2007. Many users when printing from Excel with get several pages of non-sensical "junk" printed out on the pages. If it actually prints what is on the page, none of the items are in the cells, but look like they are just randomly thrown about the page. I have found that this most often is related to the Calibri font somehow, because I instruct them to change the font to Arial and all prints fine. That being said, if the user converts the Excel sheet into a PDF and print, it prints perfect. This is a great workaround, but kind ...

Macro help #12

Excel 2007 Need to permanently change Normal settings for gridlines
I am using Excel 2007 for the first time and find the gridlines delineating the cells are so faint as to be nearly indistinguishable. I can go into the cell formatting and modify the normal style, and it is just the way I want it.

Someone please help! Regards Leonard Priestley The changes you describe are changing the Border color and NOT gridlines. Go into Excel Options and cl...

How do I add a hyperlink to an individual word in an Excel cell?
I am using Excel 2000 (not by choice) and I need to add a hyperlink to an individual word within the cell, not the whole cell itself. For example in the sentence "Click here or here to go to the appropriate web page." I want the words "here" to each have a separate hyperlink. Any ideas? I can manage some VBA too if necessary. Thanks, Rosalie Hi Rosalie, You can't do that in Excel. You would have to use HTML or Word or some other means. You could fake it, the entire cell would be a link, but you could after assigning the hyperlink select another...

Question Regarding Excel 2007 Formatting Corruption
Hi Folks, I am having a problem with Excel 2007 files losing all formatting (merged cells, colors, borders, and data formatting (99% turns into 0.99)) when I open a file on our office server make edits and then save the new file on the server. Each sheet usually has a mix of locked and unlocked cells and I unprotect the sheet to make edits. Also, something is fundamentally changed with the file as its size doubles or triples. If I reopen the corrupted file and redo any of the formatting and try to save it none of the new formatting is retained either. Has anyone else ever experienced a pr...

Insert Page Numbers on Worksheet in Excel 2007
In Excel 2003, if you wanted to put page numbers on multiple worksheets in a workbook, you grouped the worksheets and then added a header or footer, using the page number function. All of your grouped worksheets would shows its own page number. But in Excel 2007, only my first worksheet is numbered when I do this (as Page 1). What's the problem? Do I actually have to put a page number, one by one, on each worksheet? I cannot replicate your problem with 2007. Grouped sheets behave exactly as 2003 did. After grouping and adding a header of Page 1 did you do a print p...

audio notes in Word Notebook
I have recorded an audio file using Word Notebook. I would like to send the audio file to co-workers but they cannot seem to open it. Any ideas Are your co-workers using Word 2004? Only Word 2004 can open documents in Notebook Layout view and use the special features like audio, I think. However, you could use Tools | Audio Notes | Export audio to get just the audio file out, I think it comes out as an .mp4 Then send that around, it should be a standard format that most any audio program can play, far as I know.

Putting Excel Charts into a Word document that's getting too big
I am creating a Word document (our Annual Report) in which I will have many charts and graphs that were created in Excel. Currently, there will be at least 26 graphs/charts in the document.

The document itself is only about 36 pages, but, as I mentioned, within the 36 pages are at least 26 graphs and charts. I'm looking for a way to copy the graphs/charts into Excel without it taking so much memory. One solution we thought of was to only paste the gra...
