  • 1. Text Form Field Formatting
    I have a fill in the blank document, i need to set it up so that users filling in the dicument just have to press the TAB button to jump to the next field. Does anyone know how to do this or where i could find instruction on how to set this up? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
  • 2. How do you edit a Quick Part entry?
    I went from Word 2000 to 2007 in one day and what a change. I have some repetetive paragraphs set up in the Quick Part gallery but I can't figure out how to change, edit, or delete them. In my opinion, the Word "Help" section is the worst I've seen in a while. I typed in my question and it directed me on to a page full of instructions on how to "resign". What is up with that???
  • 3. Managing Links in MS Word documents - link checker?
    I have the situation where I have to deal with many Word and PDF documents on a website for reference. The problem is that the people creating the Word documents aren't linking things correctly when they create hyperlinks, thus creating bad links. The other part of the problem is that many of the documents contain links that are very old and no longer correct. Is there any tool that will allow one to bulk process a directory full of Word documents to check for the links that are inside them? Either to check for bad links - like a search spider / link walker Or to just list out the links that are created in each of the documents? Either of these options would be helpful. TIA

    Hi, I'm trying to find the equivilent Word 2007 setting for the Word 2003 Tools, options, Security, "Warne before printing, saving or sending a file that contains tracked changes or comments" I can't find the option anyway and have hunted through the help to no avail. Any advice would be great. Thanks Trevor -- rocko

Determining Type of Label Used

Postby RGlhbmU » Tue, 18 Dec 2007 15:05:01 GMT

I'm using Word 2007.  I have a file created by someone else that contains 
mailing info formatted as labels.  The problem is, I don't know what type of 
labels to use!  I've tried selecting the Mailings tab and clicking the Labels 
button, then the Options button in the dialog box, but it is showing me a 
standard Avery label that definitely doesn't correspond to what's in the 
file.  I believe that older versions of Word would show the label type 
currently in use, but Office 2007 doesn't seem to do this.  Does anyone have 
any idea how to tell which label product number was used?  I can't ask the 
person who created the file.  Thanks!

No, no version of Word will show you what type of label has been used, which 
is why I usually try to remember to put the stock number in the Comments 
field of the document Properties for label documents. About all you can do 
is scroll through the label types to find one that has the same size or 
number of labels as your document; it might be easier to do this in an 
office supply catalog or at the Avery Web site than in the Labels dialog, 
however.

If you cannot figure it out by looking and measuring then extract the data 
from the labels  http://www.**--****.com/ 
and merge to a new label format that you do know.

Thank you Suzanne and Graham!  I appreciate your help.  I like the idea of 
including the label type in the properties area, that's a great suggestion!  
And, I appreciate the conversion method too -- if I can't figure out the 
label type, at least I can resolve it another way.

By the way, Graham, I've been meaning to thank you.

Thanks to your mailmerge pages, my Christmas cards went out on time this 
year. (That's quite a first! <g>)

THANKS!

Dan

FWIW, I usually find it more efficient to create a mail merge for envelopes 
and address them directly. I don't have an envelope feeder, so doing 
hundreds would be a pain, but you still save the time of sticking labels on 
the envelopes, and it also looks classier if you have colored envelopes and 
don't use clear labels. You can also use larger type than you might on a 
label (and include your return address as well).

I too merge directly to envelopes, but the linked pages are more general 
than their filenames would suggest.

Ah, good, then. Judging by the number of typed letters we get in
hand-addressed envelopes (from law firms, for example), it seems that
printing envelopes, even singly, is an art many have not mastered. <g>

And those who know how to address envelopes evidently find that easier than 
trying to print a single label (understandable) since many law firms send 
large manila envelopes with an addressed #10 envelope taped on as the label.

4.Determine type of OLE Control Object

I'm trying to determine how I can identify the type (textbox, label, 
checkbox, listbox, combobox, ...) of an OLE Control Object that is on a 
slide, programatically.

I want to be able to click on a shape in design view, then run a macro that 
will tell me the type of a OLE Control object I have selected.  Then, if it 
is one that has a Text property, I want to display that.  If it has a 
caption property, I want to display that.  If it has a list of items 
(listbox or combo box), I would like to display the text associated with 
each of the items.

I've got some rudimentary code that handles the ones with captions and 
textboxes, but have not figured out how to iterate through the items in the 
list of a combo or listbox.  I know it has to be something like:

oShp.OLEFormat.Object.????????



5.HOWTO: Determine Application Type

I tried to find this out today, but couldn't find any answered posts (it's 
been asked numerous times!

In the OnConnection method:

if( application is Interop.Excel.Application )
{
    MessageBox.Show("Excel Application");
}
else if( application is Interop.Access.Application )
{
   MessageBox.Show("Access Application");
}

You need to reference Interop.Excel, Interop.Access and System.Windows.Forms 
for this example.
