    format font error (Word 2000)

    I have one document that when I try to do any font formatting (strikethtough, change font, etc) a Microsoft Word box pops up and says "The number must be between 1 and 600" The only choice is to click okay or X out of it. The document was not created by us. The error comes up on 2 different computers, both Word 2000, Windows XP and the font functions work fine on other documents on both computers. Any thoughts?

    This refers to font scaling, probably. Try this:

    - Select the entire document (Ctrl+A)
    - Select Format | Font...
    - Activate the Character Spacing tab.
    - Enter or select 100% in the Scale dropdown.
    - Click OK.

    I tried that before but unfortunately when I click on the Character spacing tab, the error message came up and I can't get to it to change it. The document does have character scaling at 0% according to "about this"

    Does this work?
    <UL><LI>Activate the Visual Basic Editor (Alt+F11)
    <LI>Activate the Immediate window (Ctrl+G)
    <LI>Type or paste the instruction

    ActiveDocument.Content.Font.Scaling = 100

    and press Enter[/list]
