Word XP has quit responding and won't open files



  • 1. mathematical equations

  • 2. Shadow trailing the length of the Frame using Text Form Field?
    Good Afternoon All, I'm creating a form where I want to allow users to input comments and limit the amount of words/characters they can type. The easiest way to do this would be to put the text formfield in a table and set the exact width and height for that cell. Well, the problem with doing that is when the user wants to edit text, they can't hightlight specific text within the formfield and copy/paste text within the formfield. It random highlights the text and group things together. So, the solution to fix that problem is to use frames instead. Now, this works great but if I don't put a return on the next line below the formfield, there is a shadow/trail(dark line) that extends the height of the frame from the formfield. When I take away the return, then I get the results that I want because I can do to the very end of the box and not have that empty space where the return is. Is there a way to format the frame or the formfield itself to get rid of that shadow. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks. bmac
  • 3. Multiple Word Windows
    How do I change Word from creating a new window on the toolbar at the bottom of the screen? I would like Word to work the way Excel does---the open windows are available only through the Windows drop-down menu. I usually have several programs open and the toolbar is too cluttered when Word creates separate windows in the toolbar at the bottom of the screen.
  • 4. can't delete text using backspace button after highlighting text
    i am using microsoft word, and when i highlight a particular text, i hit the backspace button and nothing happens. the only way i can delete text is to go to the word and point the arrow to the end of the word and delete it that way. i have never had problems with this before, but i would like to be able to highlight the entire word, and then just hit the backspace button to delete it. any suggestions or ideas would be much appreciated

I have been using All Office XP products for quite some time. Last night, 
when I tried to open files in any of the applications, I was unable to do so. 
I would double click on the file and nothing would happen. After a while I 
get the message "Word (or Excel, etc.) is not responding". Any suggestions?

See  http://www.**--****.com/ "Problems in Windows 
Explorer or the Windows shell after you install security update 

If you aren't comfortable with editing the Windows registry 
yourself, then go to 
down to Item No. 383 "Hewlett-Packard's Share-to-Web software - 
Fix".  Download and run the script to automatically modify your 
registry as described in KB918165.  You may need to temporarily 
disable your antivirus program in order to run the script.

A revised version of the MS06-015 update was released today that 
supposedly interacts better with the older HP and nVidia 
software.  You can download the revised update from

I just installed the Windows security updates. Now I cannot get into any of

inistalling and reinstalling Office. I finally ended up doing a System

off. Is anyone else having this problem? I also ran a virus scan, and there

5.Word: file open gives program not responding on the 2nd file open

I am not sure that I am in the correct newsgroup for this, but here goes. I 
have 2 users on a Domain, initially they can do a Word, file, open and see 
all of the documents opening correctly. On the second or succeeding file 
open, the folder opens and only a partial view of the folder is visible. But 
we have an hour glass with an eventual message, program not responding.  
Going from y Documentsall files and folders are present and they will 
open normally. Last week I had this very same problem and unfortunately I had 
done 2 separate things, one was to Live-update Corporate NAV. The other was 
to make the users folders default to the correct area on the server. Thursday 
and Friday it worked normally. Today checking Live update, it did not have 
updates to DL. It almost seems like a cache problem exists, the problem is on 
2 machines, 2 Workstation OS. This is only a small 10 user maximum users.
