    Re: W97 Whats the max number of undo actions

    Well Diana,

    My word 2000 Bible says 100 is the maximum - Hmmmmmm

    I'm not sure about W97 - but I was not aware that they had changed this feature from 97 to 2000.

    Sorry I can't help you, but it's interesting to know.

    Re: W97 Whats the max number of undo actions

    Hi Diana,

    Quick question out of curiosity:
    How did you get up to 3200 undos, and how do you know you have 'em?

    Thx,
    Gary

    W97 Whats the max number of undo actions

    HI ya

    Quick query - what is the maxium undo actions in a word document.
    I saw somewhere it was 100 actions (was that in W95?).
    I now have over 3200 undos.
    Any ideas?
    TIA Diana

    Gary

    I was researching the undo button.
    I have to get back to my manager re undo button
    & just wanted to confirm if 100 was the max number of undo's (hey this is important!!! I didnt want to discredit myself of being the word guru around the company if know what I mean!!!)

    I was testing by just copying & pasting a word, then I thought I can increase my actions by copying a pasting a single character.
    I've applied different formatting etc & continued to copy & paste sentences etc.

    I'm now clocking way past 32,000 undo actions.
    I can undo & redo my actions - its just taking a little longer.
    Does anyone know whats going on?
    Diana

    I can't find documentation anywhere on undo limits.

    You'd better be careful as go past 32,000 - you might reach escape velocity and find yourself in orbit![img]/w3timages/icons/yikes.gif[/img]

    <P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1>Edited by Leif on 01/01/24 09:53.</FONT></P>Woops - just noticed this applies to W2000, not W97...

    I found this MS KB Article which states the number of actions is limited by document size and available resources.
    I also came across this article here which appears to give a breakdown of all operating limitations and parameters - apart from the undo limit...
