How to control Word to open files in Draft layout and Document Map

I can't find how to control this. Sometimes for a long period all documents 
open in Draft mode which is what I want but sometimes they open in other 
layout modes and I have to constantly switch to Draft layout mode. Also the 
same happens with the Document Map view that appear on the left side. I used 
to have all documents open with that Document Map view but currently for 
about a month all documents open with Thumbnails view and I have to always 
switch to Document Map view every time.

You can use a macro like this:

Sub AutoOpen()
    With ActiveWindow
        .DocumentMap = True
        .Thumbnails = False
        .View.Type = wdNormalView
    End With
End Sub

and a similar one named AutoNew(). Read 
http://www.gmayor.com/installing_macro.htm for explanation of this and other 
things you can do when opening a document.

You should also look at

The view is saved with the document--so documents open the way they were saved.

The display of the Document Map, on the other hand, seems to be "global" in 
Word: the setting that was last used remains throughout the current session (and 
possibly even if you exit and restart Word). But note that the Document Map may 
be visible in Print Layout view and hidden in Draft view.

Note also that documents, even if saved in Draft view, will not open in 
Draft view unless you have explicitly selected that option in Office Button 
| Word Options | Advanced: General: "Allow opening a document in Draft 
view."

FRx 6.7: Accounts Not Displaying In Row File
I have successfully created Financial Statements for two of our three companies. However, I’m having a problem with the third one. In creating the row file, I specify a range from account 30000 through 99999. Most accounts show up in the list. Some don’t. The following account string will be my example of an existing account, with a balance, that does not show up in the row file: 00000-30035-00000 (30035 is the main account) If I manually insert a row into the row file, type in the description, and click the down arrow for the GL Link, the account does not display in the drop down.

How to open workbook from workbook template without hardcoding
Hi Thanks for the answer to my previous question but I left out a vital point sorry. Could anyone tell me how to open a workbook from a workbook template, where both files are in the same folder, without hardcoding the path. I have tried code like this without success. Workbooks.open (Thisworkbook.path & "\somefile.xls") This code works fine when opening a workbook from another workbook, but not from a template. Thanks in advance Mick If the file that contains the code was based on a template, then you're going to have to save it before it has a .path property. (If y...

Private EDB file
Hi, I am working with a client that has SBS2003 and is using Exchange 2003. There are 14 mailboxes with a total size of 4.5GB. When I look at the file size of the private edb, it is at 17GB.

Can't Open Calendar
Hello, User can not view her own calendar. The right pane says folder can not be displayed. Also, there is no checkbox next to her "My Calendar" only a small calendar icon. In addition, if she opens a shared calendar (also just has calendar icon, no checkbox), she can then go back to her calendar that now has a checkbox and open it. I don't understand why she has to go through all of these extras steps just to open her calendar. When she closes Outlook or goes back to her mail view, her calendar goes back to having the calendar icon and no checkbox and she can not op...

Customizing MailMerge Document Creation
I've been experimenting with creating quotes using the WordMailMerge add-on, as well as using the in-built mail merge functionality with CRM 3.0, and one issue has me perplexed- When I edit the template for the Mail Merge, I can't seem to customize certain fields that only populate once the merge is completed (e.g. outgoing address text box). Additionally, where in the template is it built-in to create a separate line for each product on the quote and pull the records from CRM for each of those quotes?
