  • 3. Typing a document
    Ok, I've never had this happen before. But when I open Microsoft word to start a new document, I get a message that says that there isn't sufficent memory to support the font. I can type stuff, but it just doesn't show up. I'v tried to change the font, but it doesn't help any. Some of the fonts I change it to, show up, except it looks like it in Morris Code or something. What can I do?
  • 4. trouble closing word
    I recently downloaded an Avery template, and ever since whenever I go to close any WORD document it says" the document is in use by another application or user", and lists C:\Windows\...\Templates\normal.doc. It then opens the window to the save a document area. There is only one user on this computer, and as far as I can tell, nothing else uses that particular template. It is just a nusance thing, but annoying. Any suggestions?

2.Autofill of Text Form Field based on another Text Form Field

Hi and thanks for your help.
I have a form with text Fields (protected). A number of spots I have the 
name of the person as a text field. Currently I have to renter the name with 
each form field.
Can you have it so that when you enter the name of the person it is 
automatically updated in the other Fields? Wondering if you can do this 
without VBA as then you don't have to worry about signing the code.

don't let me input anything anymore unless I UNPROTECT the form.

5.Make text form field refer to earlier form field

I have a supplier agreement form template that makes eight references to
the state in which the supplier is located.  Right now, these are entered
into eight separate text form fields so that the same state name has to be
typed eight different times.  Is there a way to make the last seven fields
simply reference the value of the first, so that the state only has to be
entered once?

Thank you for any and all guidance
