MS Office 2003 Problem with Bold

I am using MS Office 2003, and recently, I can no longer bold text in my emails. Either, I try and the cursor jumps from the selected text to another word and bolds/unbolds that one, or nothing happens at all. I have tried in rich text, and html text, have tried closing and restarting. Thanks.

    Thanks for the help - I was able to figure it out myself. I couldn't reinstall the program, as it's my work computer and I don't have access to programs and admin rights, etc. What I did do that fixed it was delete the template, restart Word and Office, and now it works!

Hi there,

You could have done a number of things (by accident of course) so it’s hard to find - on line.

Therefore the best solution would be; to remove you Office installation and re install it.
Start -> Settings -> Control panel ->ad remove program, find and remove Microsoft office.

Restart the computer, and reinstall your office.

If this was helpful, do remember to vote before you leave.
Thank you

Try selecting a cell and right click, Format cells, Font - Bold the text the way you want it to appear in that cell and then let it be the value you want to appear when you select that cell as a solution to a "What If" statement.

Unwanted BOLD Text

Not a big HTML person. But it sounds like you have a unclosed bold tag.

to start bold its <b> to end it its </b> i beleive. So place it halway through the paragraph and see if the second half is unbolded. That should tell you easily if that is the problem. If not, then I can help you. If so, place it at the very beggining of the paragraph. That is only a bandaid to take some frustration away. You should try and find the open bold tag if that is the problem.

You can bold a selected text by pressing Ctrl+B.
I dont think you can color a highlighted text at runtime because colors have to be selected from the toolbar.

If this has helped you please press solved.
