    Font Substitution (Word 2002)

    I opened a Word 2002 document (residing on the network) created by someone
    else in the office. In some places in the document the leading " symbol has
    been replaced by a capital A and the training " with the @ symbol.

    Some of the paragraphs use the Level 1 style, some use the Normal style.
    All the corrupted paragraphs are in Level 1, but not all Level 1 paragraphs
    have the problem.

    The document looks fine on the computer used to create it, but has the "A,
    @" problem on all other computers I have opened it on.

    Any suggestions as to what's going on?

    Thanks,
    Craig.

    Re: Font Substitution (Word 2002)

    The capital A and the @ are probably WordPerfect typographic symbols. These represent opening and closing quotes. Look to see if there are = where apostrophes should be. See if, when you select the capital A or the @, the font box reports Typographic symbol.

    I don't have that font installed on my machine (yet) so when I have to correct it I do a Find and Replace - Find @ (for example) and Replace with " formatted as Times New Roman (or whatever font you want to use).

    Hope this helps!

    Thank you, Anne. You were absolutely correct -- leftover WordPerfect stuff. I will have completed one of my life goals if I can ever convince everyone here to use only Word. This WordPerfect/Word mix could drive a saint insane!

    Thanks again,
    Craig
