Word Count when saving large documents

On some large documents, but not all, there is a verrrry long delay when 
saving the document as it repeatedly recalculates the number of words in the 
document. Is there a way to turn off the Word Count function in such 
documents?? Thanks.

Hi Cyndie,

Getting the word count is almost instantaneous - and doesn't rely on the save process for an update. If you're working over a 
network, the *network* may be the cause of the poor performance.

Or maybe the document is corrupt?

Where is the Keep Text Formatting feature located in Word 07
I believe this Keep Text Formatting feature might be what I need, but I have been unable to locate exactly where it is located in Word 2007. I'm trying to rid a Word document sent to me of tables, text boxes, graphics and all other document formatting, while retaining the document's text content. It is unimportant to me whether the text formatting is retained or not. Thanks. Are you referring to a Keep Text Formatting feature in an earlier version of Word?

CDHtmlDialog and large fonts: Am I in hell?
Howdy, I'm writing an app which uses html hosted by CMultiPageDHtmlDialog. My problem is that the html (given to me by designers using Front Page 2003) breaks when the user selects large fonts. I note that in standard 96dpi mode that the base dialog units are 8 and 16, while with 120dpi large fonts they are, as you'd expect, 10 and 20 (i.e. 20% larger). Is there a way to force my dialog to use the same base units for both font size settings? For reference, here is the dialog resource from my rc file which describes my dialog box: IDD_ABOUTBOX DIALOGEX 0, 0, 235, 55 STYLE DS_SETF...

counting using multiple criteria
Hi, I have a problem for which I can't seem to find a working solution.

On the other hand I have a table which shows the number of employees in a particular age category (-20, 21-25, 26-30, etc) horizontally, and the number of years they have been with the company (again in groups: 0-5 yrs, 5-10 yrs, etc) vertically. ...

Why am I prompted to save?
Why is it when closing certain files that I�m prompted to save when I haven�t changed a thing?

finding common numbers in large lists
Hello, I have two large lists of numbers (on two seperate worksheets). By large, I mean that one list is 1000+ numbers, and the second list is 3000+ numbers (each number is in its own cell). The numbers are of the form: xxxx.xxx (that is, they are precise up to three places after the decimal) 1) Is there some quick way that I can find the numbers that are common to both lists? 2) Is there a way I can find the numbers in common to both lists using only the whole number portion (diregarding what comes after the decimal of each number)?

Excel could not save all the data and formatting you recently added
Hi, One of our users sent me an Excel file of 6 MiB. It has 7 worksheets. Most of them have <100 rows and AH columns, one sheet has 13160 rows and AH columns. The large sheet has autofilter enabled, but no actual filtering is done. (yet) 4 columns have validation: they allow a list of values specified in a range somewhere else in the sheet. There is also conditional formatting. It takes >30 seconds to calculate the sheet, however there are no real calculations, just a few concatenated string. My first impression is that this is yet another example of Excel (ab)used as a database. The p...

MS Word file extension changed through e-mail
MS Word .docx files sent as attachments are received without the x, as a .doc instead. The same is true for MS Excel .xlsx changed to .xls Speak firmly to whoever set up the email system. They have not applied their updates. When the file goes through, it is being recognised as a Microsoft Word file, but the extension is being wrongly changed. Some free-mail web services have a bad habit of doing this. It's not a Word problem, the change is being made either by the sending email program or the receiving email program.
