    Controling Window Scrolling (Word 2000-2002)

    <img src=/S/hello.gif border=0 alt=hello width=25 height=29> Loungers

    OK we all know that the users can some times drive us up the wall, but yet without them life will not be the same.

    I have a user who is having problems when he accidentally moves (scrolls) the window to the right, and thus loses some of his document beyond the viewable area.

    Is there a way to control the horizontal scroll bar to be maximum the same size of the document margin?

    That is to tie the scrolling of the main application window, to the size of the margins of the document while the window is maximized?

    Thanks for all the help. You Loungers are the best <img src=/S/cheers.gif border=0 alt=cheers width=30 height=16>

    In W97 it's Page Layout view but in 2000 it's Print Layout view. From the View menu. This will give your user a WISYWIG layout of the document that I've found easy to work with (best part is there's no scrolling left or right unless they zoom in and even then, they only run to the edge of the page, never off into nowhere).
    Hope that helps
    have fun

    I should have thought of that.

    This maybe the better solution and I like it because it will work with laptops as well as desktops. Its always good to have a bigger screen to see more, but sometimes you need such tricks. <img src=/S/cheers.gif border=0 alt=cheers width=30 height=16>

    To get the largest viewable area, go to normal view. Then go to the zoom button on the standard toolbar & click the page width option. You could also put an AutoOpen macro in the document or template that had the line:

    ActiveWindow.ActivePane.View.Zoom.PageFit = wdPageFitBestFit
    Cheers,
