  • 1. Troubleshooting Section Breaks
    I am inserting a Next Page Section Break but Word is inserting an Odd Page Break which leaves me with an unwanted blank page between my sections I am using Word 2003 and have tried various ways to combat this without success does anyone out there have a fix for this problem? Thanks
  • 2. apply a template to existing documents
    sorry I previously posted with the wrong subject. ok, per instructions on Suzanne Barnhill's site, I've been able to create a letterhead template that has a header and footer only on page three of a blank document and subsequent pages will not have the header and footer. Now I'll tell you what we're trying to do. We've just converted from Word Perfect to word and have a lot of word documents that we call "reports" that we mail out. Page1 is a cover page, page2 is a table of contents, page3 begins an analysis that will go on for roughly 4 pages. What I need to do is somehow convert all of these pre-existing reports to use my newly created template so the existing page3 ends up in my template where i have the header and footer on page 3. I tried to open my template, choose insert file and choose one of the existing reports and all it did was push my 3 page template to the end. Ooops. I also tried templates and add-ins from tools but can't figure out how to make that work either. Certainly there's a way to apply a template to an existing document. Thanks for any help you can provide! Buster
  • 3. Widow/orphan control not working
    Since our company upgraded to Word 2003, widow/orphan control does not work with our templates. I'm not sure if this is a Word issue or a conflict with our customized styles. Our template use a modified version of the Normal style (Arial 11pt, left aligned, line spacing single, indents 0", spacing after 6pt). Widow/orphan conrol is on but sometimes a single line is left lonely at bottom or top of page. Why is this? If I paste similar text into a document based on Word's default Normal.dot, using the default Normal style in that template, there are no widow/orphans. If I now modify that style to include 6pt after, there are still no widow/orphan issues.
  • 4. how to allow merged data to expand row in table

Using Office XP Pro.  First I tried every possible menu item, then I
read, then reread, associated help files.

I can't seem to ask the right question so Word can give me a simple
"how to."

Hopefully y'all can redirect me in the correct direction so I can
figure it out myself.

I have a one page flyer.  The first several lines are centered and not
long, so that I have nice clean areas to the left and right at the top
into which I would like to insert something.  I have problems drawing,
so I want to use either a canned image (jpg), clipart, or an
autoshape.

I tried inserting an autoshape (one of the stars).  I was able to get
it positioned and sized, but it would not 'overtype,' rather it
inserted, shoving aside the text.  What I mean is I was unable to get
the shape and the text on the same lines.  The shape extends
vertically for about 3-4 inches, so the best I could do was to put a
star in the upper left, and the text started on the line below the
star.

I'd really rather insert one of Word's cliparts.  I could not get
anywhere on this.  I could not find a simple "how to" when I entered
clip art in the help box.  LOTS of information, but no step by step
instructions.

For an inserted picture: Click on the graphic to display the Picture
toolbar. Select the Text Wrapping button (dog icon). Change the wrapping to
Behind Text.

For your AutoShape: Right-click on the AutoShape and choose Format
AutoShape. On the Layout tab, choose Behind Text. Note that right-clicking
on the AutoShape and choosing Order | Send Behind Text does not actually
accomplish this (don't ask me why).

Well, Suzanne, thank-you.  I would not have figured this out using the
Word help files.

The "difference" I am seeing is that Order | Send Behind Text has no result
at all. If I draw an AutoShape on top of text and use Order | Send Behind
Text, there is no change at all in the display. When I bring up the Format
AutoShape dialog, the Layout tab shows the wrapping as Square. But I don't
have SP-1 applied, so that may be something that was fixed by the service
pack, though I don't see it listed in KB 311594, "WD2002: Issues in Word
2002 That Are Fixed by Office XP Service Pack 1."

4.delete duplicate clip art images in Microsoft Clip Gallery

I have downloaded many images (from the MS site) into Word 97's Clip Gallery. 
Unfortunately, I've discovered that a lot of the clips were actually 
duplicates of already-existing clips. As a result, the Clip Gallery takes 
about 90 seconds to load, and it's driving me bonkers!

How can I EFFICIENTLY remove the duplicate clips from the Gallery?

Thanks!!  

5.Clip gallery user database failed to open when trying to insert clip art

Version: 2008
Operating System: Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard)
Processor: Intel

I have a teacher that gets the message "Clip gallery user database failed to open" every time she tries to insert clip art in Word or PowerPoint. I have already tried to trash the preferences (and empty the trash) for the clip gallery in the user's library and I have tried repairing her permissions. If logged in as another user, the clip gallery works fine.

This is driving me CRAZY and I really need to move on to other support issues. Please help!
