    Reign in Word!

    <P ID="edit" class=small>(Edited by RudiS on 22-Oct-04 09:51. PS: On a blank page, type 4 3 2 one! And try the puzzle from that!)</P>Heres a word puzzle for the kings of MS Word!

    Without touching the keyboard, convert the text on the page to the word "throne".

    This time I will accept any method possible as the correct answer!
    Regards,
    Rudi

    <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">I highlighted the word, turned on dictation mode and said "throne" into the microphone.</span hide>

    <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">Select all text with the mouse.
    Select Tools | Language | Set Language...
    Select one of the variants of English
    Click OK
    Position the insertion point at the beginning of the line.
    Select Insert | Field...
    Select Seq in the list of field names.
    (The following is for Word 2002, it was different in earlier versions, if I remember correctly)
    Click Field Codes.
    Click Options...
    In the General Formatting tab, select One, Two, Three, ...
    Click Add to Field.
    Activate the Field Specific Switches tab.
    Select r
    Click Add to Field.
    Click OK.
    Click OK.
    Right-click the field.
    Select Toggle Field Codes.
    Select the word 'one'.
    Copy to the clipboard.
    Click after the word 'SEQ'.
    Paste.
    Select the number 3.
    Cut to the clipboard.
    Click after the switch /r
    Paste.
    Right-click the field.
    Select Toggle Field Codes.
    Right-click the field.
    Select Update Field.
    You should now see "three".
    Select 'ee'.
    Cut to the clipboard.
    Select the other text beween 'thr' and 'one'.
    Cut to the clipboard (this may take two or more steps).</span hide>

    Re: Reign in Word!

    Thats the general idea. Yes. You could use any field to insert the word "three" into the doc. Delete anything else and join three and one together deleting the "ee "!! <img src=/S/thumbup.gif border=0 alt=thumbup width=15 height=15>

    The method I used when initiating the puzzle!
    <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">
    1. Select 4 3 2
    2. Insert | Field
    3. Select the field called NumChars and select the format "CardText" (results in the code : NUMCHARS * CardText)
    4.Choose OK -- (Replaces 4 3 2 with Three which is the current character count!)
    5. Select the "ee" and choose Edit | Clear | Contents
    </span hide>
    Regards,
    Rudi
