How do I get rid of the parantheses in APA style citations?

I would like the APA style citations in the body of the paper to now 
automatically show parantheses on either side of the author and title.  
Otherwise the whole bibliography feature is useless.  Any ideas?

There is no on/off switch for the brackets. Your choices are to either keep 
them, or remove them altogether. If you want to remove them for all 
instances, you will have to edit the style by hand.

The short version: 
(especially 6 and 8 are useful)

The long version (in case you don't know XSL):

The styles are located in the


directory. Assuming a normal 32-bit OS with a default Office 2007 
installation, that directory is

  C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office12\Bibliography\Style

The style you want to edit is located in APA.XSL. Create a copy of the file 
and name it MyAPA.XSL. Open the file with a text editor (notepad, ...) and 
look for the following lines:

  <xsl:when test="b:OfficeStyleKey">

and change it to

  <xsl:when test="b:StyleName">
    <xsl:text>APA without brackets</xsl:text>

Now when you start Word, there will be an extra style in the dropdown list, 
labeled "APA without brackets".

Next you want to remove the brackets. Look for

    <xsl:call-template name="templ_prop_OpenBracket"/>

and remove it. This will remove the opening bracket. Then look for

  <xsl:if test="/b:Citation/b:LastAuthor">
    <xsl:call-template name="templ_prop_CloseBracket"/>

and remove it. This will remove the closing bracket. You should be all set

Getting Outlook 2003 to Download Header AND BODY of a Mail Like Outlook Express
A few months ago, I converted from Outlook Express to Outlook 2003, which I use against an Oracle Collaboration Suite IMAP server. Outlook Express worked flawlessly. I've still not been able to get Outlook 2003 to properly download all of my headers and bodies so that I can sync my mail and then unplug from the network and read the mail on a plane. I have configured my Send/Received Groups and changed the radio button for my IMAP "Inbox" folder to say (*) Download complete item including attachments", but if I do Send/Recieved, then unplug the network, all of the new mail ...

Getting "This page cannot be diplayed"
I have been getting the "This page cannot be diplayed" when I click on either the Investing, Planning, or Taxes button. When I am connected to the Internet it works fine, but sometimes I want to check my Debt Reduction Planner or check on how I am doing with my tax situation without having to get online.

How to get #value! to return a value of 0?
My formula is like this: =A2+B2+C2. However, some of the values in the B2 column are "--," indicating "not applicable". When I use the formula, it interprets this as text, of course, and returns the error value of #VALUE! I want it to treat these as zeroes. How can I do this? I tried doing a FIND AND REPLACE, but it did not recognize any of the "-- " values in the FIND. Can anybody help? =SUM(A2:C2) would be the easiest way.

Mail from one person not getting through to another
I have a very curious problem. We have Exchange 2000 running on an SBS 2000 server. All of our internal users are in the domain and all but two of them have Windows XP desktops using Outlook 2000. The two exceptions are graphics designers who have Mac OS/X machines, have domain accounts (and mailboxes) and access their email via POP3, using built-in Mac clients. The problem is this. One of the Mac users, call him M1, can't receive any mail from one of the XP users, call him X1. What's perplexing are these things: 1) M1 can receive mail from other XP users, 2) M1 can send mail to all...

How do you get the blue title bar back in excel?
The blue title bar at the top of excel has dissapeared, how do you get it back? Hi Craig depends on why it has gone, try view / full screen to see if that works (if it doesn't, do view / full screen again to return the screen to normal view) or if it is because of a resize of the screen, right mouse click on the excel icon in the taskbar and choose resize, then try and drag the window down before maximising it again.

getting RFC 821 compliant headers from FE to BE server
I figured this had to be covered already but I cannot find anything about it. when you view "full" headers in Outlook off of our backend server all it shows it the transfer from the FE server to the BE server, not the full headers starting with the originating MTA, and even then the headers on the FE don't include everything, there is some stuff, but it is definitely not a full header. I have turned on every bit of logging I can think of/find and nothing changes. so two questions: 1. Is it simply not possible to push the entire header all the way through to the backend serve...

Blank space gets inserted after text
For most columns, I am specifying a wrappable text format. Sometimes, after entering text in a cell, I get an extra blank line embedded at the end and I have to go back and manually close up the space. (So, if the text actually takes 2 lines, the row becomes 3 lines deep.) However, the problem is not consistent and I can't always reproduce it. Sometimes the height of the cell adjusts itself to the text just fine. I thought I may be inadvertently hitting the spacebar at the end of the last word, causing a wraparound, but that doesn't seem to be it. Any ideas? Hi Ros, Have you t...

Can we get back on track?

"OWA was unable to get to your inbox" after moving mailbox to ES2K #2
We are upgrading ES5.5 to ES2K with a new server. After moving mailbox from ES5.5 to the ES2K server, the mailbox shows the correct new home server in the Global Catalog in Exch Admin 5.5, but when users try to login to our OWA 5.5 they get the message "OWA was unable to get to your inbox". We are moving mailboxes incrementally to reduce impact on production, but users will still need to access OWA while the migration is in progress. Do we need to set up a second OWA instance, or is there a way to tell OWA 5.5 where to look for the mailbox on the ES2K server? You will need to conne...

Can I get rid of underlining in phone font?
When I open up a contact, all of the phone numbers are in an underlined font. Can I get rid of the underlining somehow? I tried Tools / Forms / Design this form and then changing the font to not underlined, but that appears to have created a custom form for just that one contact. So, now I also need to find out how to get rid of that custom form and replace it with one that applies to all contacts.
