Q: Microsoft Word

Please, someone tell me how I can print horizontally, as opposed to vertically?, I have tried, but haven't fathomed it out, it would be useful for banners / car stickers. Yes, I know there are sites for car stickers, but I'd like to be able to do it on "Word"

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Microsoft Word

Easy Peasy - Simply change the paper type from portrait to landscape in either:- file->print->setup or file->page layout

one of those two has the option, and then your paper should change in word (if you use layout view, if you use normal view you probably wouldn't notice)

Does anyone noe weather vista Microsoft word support the old formated ones? Or is there any plug-in needed to support?

A:Does Vista Microsoft Word Support Old Format Microsoft Word?

I'm assuming you're talking about the new office 2007? meaning word 2007?

If that is the case, then yes it does run older versions of word. In the sense that if you have a word document that was made and saved in Word 2003 it would work in 2007.

Just like when you make something in word 2007 you are able to save it as a Word 03-07 document so it works on both versions of Microsoft Word.

Hard to explain but here goes:

When I have a sentence that I want to move to the middle of the page, I place the curser to the left of the word and try to push it right by hitting the space bar and nothing happens.

This is only when the word is all the way to the left of the page.

Is there some type of formatting that would allow this to be free so that I can push words forward??

After recent full system recovery caused by one or more virus, I am unable to re-install Microsoft Word or Word Perfect on my Compaq Presario, which has Windows XP. Microsoft Word will sometimes start the process but then just stops, giving no indication of what steps to take next or what the problem is. Word Perfect seems to start the process each time but then gets hung up with updating what it describes as the SHFolder.dll. Have waited as long as 20 minutes for this update. The screen does show activity but it just never seems to get done. I cannot take the installation process past that point.

Any suggestions on how I can correct or cure this problem?

A:Unable to install either Microsoft Word or Word Perfect

Check here: for some help - probably the .dll is either corrupt or the path not recognized. Depending on whether or not this page helps, either fix it with that or lookup SHFolder.dll. on the net and download a new copy from somewhere like and install it.

Doing a fix for a friend, and this is a new one for me. Her primary concern was that all of a sudden, when she opens word, she can not type anything in a document. I tried it, and nothing happens. It opens like normal, and when you try to type, it is like the keyboard is locked out.

I found a few things on google that I tried to no avail. There was a .DLL patch I did, and I also removed so registry keys.

It is Win XP home, with 256 ram, and a P4 1.7 Proc. The version of word was installed with a software bundle that included Microsft Works.

I uninstalled Word, and reinstalled Office 2000 PRO, and the same thing is happening...

Dear Forum,

I'm just starting to learn about Microsoft Word 10, which was bundled within an Office 10 package. I'm noticing that as I type a document, the Word Count dialog box at the bottom left remains frozen at 0. When I right-click on it, it opens, but the Word Count is checked within it. So, it's not turned off or anything. I need to limit what I'm writing to a certain number of words. I have to complete this thing within the next day or so. Unexpected need for a troubleshooting solution.

Why isn't my word count going up? And the Characters seem stuck at 67. Maybe I clicked something I shouldn't have. Otherwise, I need some guidance here. Thanks. Steve

I have decided to try to fix a problem on my computer with the Microsoft Fix It thing that Microsoft lets us use. Unfortunately, it not only did nothing for my problem (Which I no longer care about), but it did something to Microsoft Works Word Processor, the one that comes with windows. I already tried a system restore, but I've had it for too long so my restore didn't go back far enough.

The error itself says, "Works cannot access one or more files it needs to run the Word Processor. The files may have been renamed, deleted, or moved. Try reinstalling Works, and then starting the program again." Unfortunately I don't know if it has actually been moved or deleted and I don't know how to reinstall it. Any help would be great.

A:Microsoft Word 2000 aka MS Word 2000 - Sending Email - Need Help Configuring

Word itself does not send (or receive) e-mail messages. You may configure Word to be your e-mail editor, but it still requires an e-mail program (such as MS Outlook) to send messages.

You can send e-mails from within Word by using File, Send To, Mail Recipient (or Mail Recipient as Attachment), but this still uses Outlook to do the sending and receiving.

Hi Robert

Have you considered using the PDF format. You can download free convertors, such as - this. Most people will have Adobe Acrobat reader on thier computer, if they don't a free download is available from Adobe - here
Using this format will also stop anyone editing your documents easily.

Alternatively just burn a copy of the Open Office .exe file to each CD and add a ReadMe First Note pad document explaining what to do if they don't have MS Word.

The part I am having difficulty with is "skipping" the read only recommended dialog box (and opening the document as read - write).

My code for this part of the macro is

Dim PathToUse As String
Dim i As Long
Dim myDoc As Word.Document

PathToUse = "P:\My_Documents\"

On Error Resume Next
Dim Subfolders As Boolean

With Application.FileSearch
.LookIn = PathToUse
.SearchSubFolders = True
.FileName = "*.doc"
.MatchTextExactly = True
.FileType = msoFileTypeAllFiles

If .Execute() Then
For i = 1 To .FoundFiles.Count
Application.DisplayAlerts = False
Set myDoc = Documents.Open(.FoundFiles(i), WritePasswordDocument:="xxxxxxxxxx")
Am I correct in thinking that the IgnoreReadOnlyRecommended cannot be used as an arguement in the last line?
And if so is there another method I can use?

Many thanks in advance,

I set this up, I don't use Filesearch as it is not supported in Office watch out.

I was able to adapt some code I use to import Excel files...

Public Sub test()

Dim strFile As String 'Filename

Dim intFile As Integer 'File Number
Dim path As String
Dim myDoc As String '
Dim fileStr As String ' string to open file

path = "P:\My_Documents\"

strFile = Dir(path & "*.doc")

While strFile <> ""
'add files to the list if meeting Criteria

intFile = intFile + 1
ReDim Preserve strFileList(1 To intFile)
strFileList(intFile) = strFile

strFile = Dir()

'see if any files were found
If intFile = 0 Then
MsgBox "No files found"
Exit Sub
End If

'cycle through the list of files
For intFile = 1 To UBound(strFileList)

myDoc = strFileList(intFile)
fileStr = path & myDoc

If GetAttr(fileStr) And vbReadOnly Then

' sets attribute to normal prior to opening
SetAttr fileStr, vbNormal

Documents.Open filename:=fileStr, ConfirmConversions:=False, ReadOnly:= _
False, AddToRecentFiles:=False, PasswordDocument:="", PasswordTemplate:= _

I have a HP Deskjet 722 printer, when I try to print from Microsoft Word, it takes much longer than usual.
Also when the print options pop up I can click properties it indents, when I click options it indents but when I click the ok it does not indents. It still prints but somthing is not right.
It still prints from word but somthing has changed to make it so slow.
I am operating Windows 98.
When I used Microsoft Word before it would pop right away, now it takes about thirty to forty seconds to finally come on the screen??
I believe that I might have a setting that is not right, and Microsoft Word is not going right to the printer?? I have checked all the printer options, they seem to be ok.
Hope this makes some sense.
I can use any help you may be able to give.

I'm working with a Tablet PC (using Windows XP Professional) and when I try to select Open or Save and then select the area to search file locations, it takes an extremely long time for the list of network drives to display.

This doesn't happen with viewing file locations either through My Computer or Windows Explorer. It does this wether the Tablet is docked or free.

I ran the Word 2002 post-Service Pack 3 hotfix package, but this did not fix the problem.

Anyone have any other suggestions? HELP!!!!!

I just formatted my drive, and realized I needed a word document that I didnt save.

I ran On Track, Easy Recovery software, and recovered my document.

The problem, is that its in some strange format, and I cant convert it to something I can see.

Ive tried Rich Text Format, Word, etc...

Isnt there some sort of way that I can convert the coding, to something I can read??

Ive attached a copy of the doc. Any help would be great.



A:Microsoft Word HELP!!

The header suggests it was an .rtf file, however I would suggest that the formatting of the drive has corrupted the file.

Thats hardly surprising as a format would seriously compromise any file, but the recovery software has obviously had a good try at recovering it.

The file is not recognised by my Word version, trying all the common Word file formats.

When a Word 97 document is saved in the recommended manner but then recalled the format partially or totally has changed in format, that is it appears to be in ASKI or some other unreadable format. This also seems to happen when a document is sent to the Recycle Bin then recalled. Please HELP

A:Microsoft Word

What do you mean, "saved in the recommended format". If you don't save it as a Word document, and depending on what you save it as, it can lose some of it's formatting. If you are saving it in Word, and it is losing formating, I would be suspicious of a virus or a corrupted You can try renaming your to Normal.old and then trying it. If it works, then you know the was corrupted. If not, then delete the new one and rename the old one back since it has your personalized settings such as Macros and Auto Text.

I am working in Microsoft Word and have the following problem:

I have an 18 page document of genealogy. I want to put a border on four sides of each page and page numbers.

I clicked on Format and selected a border. The border appeared on the four sides of all 18 pages as well as the page numbers.

However,when I clicked on Print Preview the page number was there but the bottom border was missing. When I print the document the page number is there but the bottom border does not print.

I have changed margins, changed point size of the border etc, but nothing has worked.

I would appreciate any remedy if there is one.

Alright, my family just got a new computer, with all the bakery fresh software available. The problem is, Microsoft Word isn't backwards compatible, so the older files will not open. Some of these were files that they needed for work, so they're very important. I've searched online, and the only converters I can find are wps to doc, the exact opposite of what I actually need. Do these converters work the other way too? Or can someone point me in the direction of what I need? All help appreciated, thanks!

So, I hit the icon that displays all my choices & change to "List".

I have a question about a problem with Microsoft word 2010. I know the fix is probably easy but I can not figure it out. Recently, when using word I must have clicked something without even knowing. Usually there is a little space at the top of the page and when I click on the page the curser is below the space, like with a header, even though I haven't added a header. It's just the way it is supposed to be. My problem is now when I go to new word page my cursor goes directly to the top of the page and the only way I can get the space back is to manually add a header every time. How do I get word to go back to its default settings?Thanks

You probably inadvertently changed the View so under the View tab select Print Layout and it should go back to the way you want it.

do you mean that your doc's get opened in wordpad? or they get saved with a wordpad icon?

right-click on a document >> open with... >> if you see word on the list, select it, and make sure the 'always use...' box is ticked

if you can't see word on the list, youy have to use the 'browse...' button, and navigate to the word program (winword.exe), probably somewhere in your c:\program files\microsoft office folder (or similar, i don't have it installed here right now).

Is there anyway that you can download microsoft word to make different types of graphs on?? Or can you make them on Microsoft Word 97???

A:Microsoft Word 97

If you have Microsoft Excel you can. If you go to "insert" then to "Object" you can insert a graphic from excel or even Lotus if you have that. There is a way to create your own table in word. To do this go to "Table" then to "Draw Table." I recomend just either hyperlinking the graph from excel/Lotus or by inserting an object.

Also when trying to use the tool bar menus (such as the spacing selector) the menu gives the pre-drop image (faint image JUST before it actually shows its self) and stops, no menu.

It handles it automatically. If you have a lock-up or power failure, Word will open after you reboot with the saved file open.

It stores them in Windows>Temp with a .wbk extension, but I don’t think it even saves it as a temp file without an uncontrolled shutdown of Word without the opportunity to save the active document.

If im reading your problem correctly, when you copy and paste from a website it is not in the same format as the document you are writing. It is possible to only paste text without formatting by default by going to the office button in the top leftThen clicking word options.Then selecting advancedThen find the copy and paste section that looks like the picture below and change it to text only.hope that's what you wanted.

A:Microsoft Word

using 0ff2000 now, but recall it was the same with Off97

create your table
click on the cell you want to have the picture in
main menu bar: insert, picture, from file (or clipart)

if you have the insert picture icon on the tool bar, just drag it into the cell you want

right clicking on the picture afterwards gives you sonme formating choices and you can change the size by dragging the corner towards th emiddle

hint: click on the corner, hold the shift button, then drag
- this will keep the proportions the same

note: publisher may be better than word in some cases for having pictures and text (newsletters, brochures, flyers), depends what the document is
