Show Document Map as default



  • 1. Updating Excel Worksheets in Word
    I have created a Word doc with a number of Excel worksheets. These worksheets have links to external spreadsheets. Right now when I update the source document, the speadsheets in the Word doc don't update until I physically go into the worksheet. Is there a way to get the embedded Excel sheets to update as soon as the Word doc is opened? Thanks, jim
  • 2. How can I update a table of contents in a protected document
    My document contains an automatic table of contents. I have a section break before the table and another after. I then protect the document for sections and styles leaving the protection turned off in the section where the TOC is, and also turned off on the styles used in the TOC. However, when I turn on the protection and make amendments to the document, the TOC doesn't update. I can only seem to get around this by unprotecting the document then updating the field. I need to update the entire TOC and not just the page numbers. Can this be done? Thanks in advance. M

Show Document Map as default

How can I made the document map show as my default. It seems that whenever I 
close or save a file with it, when I re-open the file I get the Thumbnail 
View. Thanks.

>I am trying to open a document that I worked on yesterday (for hours, I'm afraid). Today, when it opens, it only shows the comments that came with the document when I started work on it. No text shows at all. However, when I click Document View, my text is still outlined in the Document View pane - but I can't get any of it to show in the document screen.

2.Document Map - remove selector bar at top of document map


Is there a way to remove the Document Map/Thumbnails selector bar at the top
of the Document Map in Word 2007 so that it is like previous versions?

It takes up two valuable heading spaces and I NEVER use Thumbnails.

I hope Word 2010 has the option of removing that annoying bar.

3.document map (in navigation pane) shows too many headings

Version: 2008
Operating System: Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard)

Yesterday I began using the document map to navigate my document. Initially it only showed the text I had formatted in a "heading" style. This is what I wanted. Now upon reopening the file, it is showing more more text (too much) -- any normal text that is bolded, every line of all outlines. There is so much being displayed that that document map is not useful anymore. How do I restrict it to just showing the text formatted as headings. (I tried ctl-click and selecting Heading 3 or a different heading, but that made no difference.)

4.Showing Document Map causes Right Click menus to stop working

Looking at an application that hosts word inside of IE.

When document is loaded the right click menus of Word 2003 
work AOK.

Button on the application shows the DocumentMap (One line 
of code). When the map is initially shown everything is 
OK, but when you click on an item in the Map and the 
document view changes to that area of the document the 
right click menu will not show.

Any ideas?
