  • 2. Setting default tray for label printing in Word 2000
    I'm trying to set the default tray for one off single label printing in Word 2000. In the Tools|Envelopes and Labels dialog box, under the Labels tab you can manually set it to Tray 1, but its currently on Autoselect which seems to take it from Tray 3 of the printer. However printing Envelopes seems to work fine and takes from Tray 1. Is there a place to specifically set the tray for Label printing? Any help would be much appreciated.

I am attempting to insert text on an existing form (line) in word.  In so 
doing, the line adjusts - I would like to retain the existing settings for 
the lines and only insert the text on top of the line.

Thanks for any help.

1."Justifying" centered lines, automatically adjusting length

Is there a way in Word (any version, but especially 2000) to "justify" 
centering? In other words, if you have 2 lines of centered text, can you 
instruct word to break them where needed so that the 2 lines will be of 
equal length? (Ideally, this setting could be entered as part of a 
paragraph style.)

For example, instead of this:

        Scientists Discover the Remains of Jimmy Hoffa Inside
                              a Dinosaur

you'd automatically get this:

                   Scientists Discover the Remains
                   of Jimmy Hoffa Inside a Dinosaur

Thanks much.

2.Inserting lines in word that text can go over w/out moving lines

4.length of text lines

I frequently have long documents emailed to me in 
plaintext format, to be edited in Word 2000.  The length 
of the text lines usually is too short, and I have been 
correcting each line manually.  I have tried changing 
margins and formatting paragraphs, but nothing seems to 
work.  Does anyone have a quick fix for this problem?

5.Extract doc into text with 75 char line length

Does anhyone know of a VBA command that will take a Word doc paragraph and 
convert it to (approx) 80n chars in width, while splitting the line at the 
end of a word (ie, not to split at exactly 80 chars, but to split at the 
last full word before the 80 chars is reached).

My problem is that we export the Word doc text into a database by extracting 
the textual content (as ascii text) and the database app cannot present the 
wider lines betyond 80 chars. I need to split the lines at the 80 (or less) 
char mark and insert a CRLF so the db app can handle it for display.

Much appreciated.
