    Re: macro problem (2003, SP2)

    Thanks to everyone for helping me out. You all certainly have a lot of patience, and I really appreciate it -- especially since we now have a much better macro than we did.

    Re: macro problem (2003, SP2)

    Both suggestions here are great ideas, but I'm such a novice at code that I can't figure out how to get either into my macro & have it work; I've tried lots of different ways and nothing works. I am...

    Re: macro problem (2003, SP2)

    sounds like a good idea, and I'll have to find someone that can show me how to do that -- I've never used a message box either so that would be a learning experience too.

    macro problem (2003, SP2)

    Our group of 4 will be working on docs with lots of tables. Our table border & heading row shading need RGB values entered, so I've recorded a macro to do this. Trouble is some tables have more...
  7. Re: Cross References and Paragraph Numbering (Word 2000 SP3)

    I've got Word 2K at home & just checked your comment about no place to specify tab location in the format numbering menu. It lets you specify where your text position indents, however. You can...

    Re: Table borders (2003)

    Once you choose a border style and a color, you have to make a choice from Settings, or the border is never applied. Once you choose a setting, it will stay that way. You can also use the little...

    Re: fields in Word 2000 template (2000)

    Have you tried using tables? Most of the forms I see where I work are done in tables and that's how I would want to do a fill-in form. Put each field to be completed in its own cell.

    Re: Powerpoint Slides in Word (2003)

    If you select one image & reveal field codes (shift-F9), you'll find that all images are actually embedded slides. If you right-click on the image (at least in Office 2003), you'll find that you can...

    Re: Table styles issues (Word XP)

    I contributed some to this thread before. Since then (11/06), we've used "Table Normal" table style in all our docs. We work proposals with many different writers; our docs go thru several rounds of...
  13. Re: Placing a picture on same page as a point in t

    I know I'm late getting in on this discussion, but we use frames all the time to position figures with their captions; also tables with their titles if they are small and can be placed beside text. ...

    Re: Two tables/charts side by side (2003 SP2)

    Have you tried inserting the charts & corresponding tables into a 1-row, 2-column table? That way you wouldn't have to deal with section breaks because of the switchover from 2 columns to 1 column. ...

    Re: Special symbols (Word 2003)

    Glad I saw this -- sure is better than my list of symbols to get with Alt+4-digit numbers on keypad. Can't remember all the numbers so have to keep it close to my monitor. This will be much easier...

    You can set the default for table styles in Table Autoformat -- you can choose Table Normal from the list and click Default . This will make all your tables have NO style, which is what every table...

    Re: Table styles issues (Word XP)

    Thanks so much -- works great. If table end-of-row markers are already "Table Normal", all is left alone -- borders & alignment stay as it was. Only the ones that are different have these things...

    Re: Table styles issues (Word XP)

    Thanks for the macro -- we're changing ours to read "Table Normal" instead of "Table Grid" because we want to stay as far away from Microsoft table styles as possible and Table Grid is one of those. ...
