    Paste Smart Tag (2002)

    If you paste text then start typing, you'll miss the opportunity to click the Paste Smart Tag. Is there a way to invoke the paste smart tag AFTER it disappears?

    Kevin--

    I think so. This seems to work. Let me know if you're still not getting the chance after you paste. I also don't know if you're doing any pasting any smart tags into FrontPage, but I included a link for that in case.

    Paste the Way You Want With Smart Tags with FrontPage 2002

    <font color=448800>_____________________________________ __</font color=448800>

    "As expected, Microsoft has integrated various tasks within Microsoft Office suit and a good example of this can be seen in Excel in which users can easily access and update fresh data from the Web by using the "Smart Tag" feature. All that you do is to go to any Web site and copy the information (such as stock tickers, weather updates, or news) that you want to analyse. After you paste this information in Excel, you can select "create refreshable Web query" from the Smart Tag that will appear. The information will then be updated by either manually refreshing the data or by giving a time frame to the program, automatically keeping your spread sheets or databases up to date."--Log In Tribune India

    Also one way to copy an excel table into word without losing the formatting is to use the Paste Options Smart Tag>Keep Source Formatting:

    To copy a table from Excel to Word:

    1) Open both the Word document you want to copy to and the Excel worksheet that contains the table.
    1) In Excel, select the table you want to copy.
    3) On the Edit menu, click Copy.
    4) Switch to Word, and then click where you want the table to appear.
    5) On the Edit menu, click Paste.
    6) Using the Paste Options smart tag, select one of the following options:
    To keep the formatting applied in Excel, select Keep Source Formatting. (Or, to link the table so that it automatically updates with new data, select Keep Source Formatting and Link to Excel.)
    To match the style of a table already in your Word document, select Match Destination Table Style. (Or, to link the table instead of copying it, select Match Destination Table Style and Link to Excel.)

    HB,
    > after you paste.
    I think you misread my post. I get the paste options after I paste. What I want is the smart tag to show up at will. So, let's say I forget to use the paste options smart tag after pasting some text, but later I want to reformat a paragraph. Obviously, I can use the format painter, etc, but I'd like to see the paste smart tag re-appear. How do?
