How do I do this?



  • 1. How do I change my registry policy setting?
    I keep getting messages on the screen saying that the file I am trying to open was created in an earlier version of Windows , and cannot be opened because of my "registry policy setting". I don't recall ever creating a "registry policy setting" and all the old files were available to me until recently. How can I change my "registry policy setting", to regain access to all my old files???

  • 3. Now this is creative
    I have a Dell Demension 5150 with XP Pro (including Office 2003), AVG 8.0.175 free, Zone Alarm 7.0.483.000 free, Spybot Search and Destroy 1.6.0 free, Spyware Blaster 4.1 and AdAware SE 1.06 free. The problem is I can no longer see non-installed fonts in the Word drop down menu screen. I used to be able to open and minimize 35 fonts at one time (before opening Word) with no problem (for making a card). But now, I am lucky if it works for one font. The weird thing is I can still do this in Publisher, but I really don't wish to have to use Gadwin PrintScreen to take a picture (make a jpeg) to place in a file to upload to Word. Unless there is an update that has caused this to happen, what can I do to be able to use Word without installing (and uninstalling) several fonts? I was able to open noninstalled fonts in ME with Office 2000, too. It's weird that it works in Publisher 2003, but not Word, although it used to. I'm guessing that it may have something to do with a security upgrade to either Windows, Word, AVG, or ZoneAlarm. I got the idea of using noninstalled .ttf fonts from several people who use different versions of PSP and Photoshop. All used different versions of Word and Windows. All were able to do this. I don't know if anyone of those people are having trouble now, but I haven't heard of this problem. Thanks, Joan
  • 4. disallowing certain words to be used
    Is there a way to automatically disable or to highlight words that you do not want allowed in your text in the case of a possible mispelling? Sincerely, Robin
  • 5. Graphic in a table
    In a simple 3-column table, I insert a (Visio drawn GIF) graphic in the middle cell. How can I set the text wrap around the graphic? Select the graphic and Right-Click gives the table menu, not the graphic menu. The graphic text-wrap defaults to what in a non-table document would be "In Line with text". TIA Paddy

I am looking for information on how to do something but I don't know what it 
is called.  Here is what I am trying to do:  I am making a template for a 
proposal.  In this template the Client's name appears approximately 30 times. 
 How can I set up the template so all the salesperson has to do is type the 
Client's name in one area and then everywhere else in the template, the 
Client's name should appear, it would automatically fill it in.

Any input would be greatly appreciated!

3.Doing a Word 2003 Mail Merge from Access 2003

Hi ,

I have everything in place from the access database side, i can select a
record, create a query in VB "ContractSelect" that contains one record that
i want Word 2003 to display as its datasource when it prints, but what
happens is that when ever i open/launch word from WITHIN Access 2003 it
always shows the last record data from the previous time i ran the program.

BUT if i start Word manually it says connect to SQL...blah and works

The access datbase is called Contracts.mdb
The Query in the datbase is called ContractSelect
strDocName Contains the full path and filename for the word mailmerge doc

The code in Access to open word i have created is this:-

Sub OpenWordDoc(strDocName As String)
Dim objApp As Object
' Opens the document
Set objApp = CreateObject("Word.Application")
objApp.Visible = True
objApp.Documents.Open strDocName
' This next bit maybe complete crap....but i cant find any help on doing it
objApp.Documents(1).MailMerge.opendataSource _
        Name:="C:\data\contracts.mdb", LinkToSource:=True _
        , Connection:="QUERIES ContractSelect", SQLStatement:="SELECT * FROM
' Execute the mail merge.
End Sub

using the above It opens the document but now comes up with the "data link
Properties box" Then the "Confirm data Source" dialog where I select MS
Access Datbases via DDE (*.mdb,*.mde), then i get an error saying "Word was
unable to open the data source."

Id very much appreciate it someone could help me with this begginers
