  • 3. "Invalid product key" -- I NEED HELP !!!!!!!!!!
    Hello, I have had to recently reinstalled WindowsXP on my Dell Dimension 8200. Microsoft WorksSuite was already installed at Dell and now that I have reinstalled XP it will not allow me to install Word 2001. I get an invalid product key when actually I am putting the CORRECT product key that is pasted to the side of my pc. All other programs with WorkSuite seem to be running okay, that is, I don't receive a request for a product key. Has anybody had this problem before? Can someone help me, please?

  • 4. Borders
    I am trying to make a round border for a word document. I have tried using an autoshape and scaling it but I cannot get it to work correctly. I want a border that is almost totally square with just a little bit of a curve and the only autoshape makes it too curvy. Can any one please help me with this or tell me where I can download some new borders for Office 2002? Thanks

Hi Historical Ruth,

From the Word Help file-

. Switch to print layout view.

. Select the text box that you want the text to stop flowing from. To do
this, move the pointer over the border of the object until the pointer
becomes a four-headed arrow, and then click the border.

. On the Text Box toolbar, click Break Forward Link

2.inserting text box - text does not move from under text box

When inserting a text box the underlying text does NOT move out of the way?
In older WORD program the text would move. 

3.Typing in one form's text box affects all others

I downloaded an application form and noticed that all of the text boxes on 
the final page are somehow connected to a title text box on the first page -- 
that title text appears in the subsequent boxes, and changing the text in one 
box changes the text in all others. This is supposed to be a form where users 
can fill in their own information in the boxes on the final page, different 
text in each box. Does anyone know how to fix this, to break this connection 
between the text boxes without creating a whole new form? (No, there doesn't 
seem to be "linked text" in the usual sense.) I'm using Microsoft Word 2002.
