Question about Microsoft Office Word 2003 for PC

MS Word 2003Windows everything gets selected; all is highlighted

About once a week, when I'm either creating a Word document or writing a message in Outlook, a word will become highlighted. When I try to delete the highlighted word, the entire sentence and then paragraph will also become highlighted.

If I switch to Outlook to send a message, items in my inbox column of new messages will also become highlighted.

If I minimize both the Word and Outlook screens and click on an icon, all the icons are highlighted.

I have to use control-alt-delete to close everything and turn off the computer.

When it comes back on, everything is back to normal.

This problems is driving me crazy!!!!

Can anyone help?

NEED TO KNOW HOW TO PRINT MORE THAN 1 ENVELOPE AT A TIME. DO LETTERS AND ENVELOPES ONCE A WEEK BUT THE PRINTER WOULD ONLY PROCESS 1 ENVELOPE AT A TIME AND I HAD TO DO THAT ONE MANUALLY.


Hi there !

For printing bulky letters or documents of the same format, I suggest you use the MS word mail merge document. You need to set up the mail merge document and the data of the file. For examples, the list of names, addresses telephone numbers and others should be input to the envelops.

Here's how to create mail merge document file.


1. Open a new blank MS word document or if you have a format already in a MS word format, just use it as default letter.

2. Go to menu bars (Home, Insert, Page Layout, References, Mailing, Review and View) and choose Mailing.

3. From Mailing, click on select recipients, choose use existing lists and find the excel document files that stores all the information like list of customers, company names, addresses, telephone numbers and others.

4. Open it and select table will appear and just click ok to merge it automatically to your default envelope.

5. Now you need to set up or format your envelope. from the Mailing menu, Insert Mail Merge Field will appear and click it to display the headings of your data source. Put the headings wherever you want.

6. After that, press preview result to display the datas. Save your work and it is finished

I'm out of blank ink. Can I print document with colored ink only? How?


If you want to print text & documents with a colour other than black then for MS Word and many other applications:
  1. Highlight the whole document by either pressing [Ctrl A] or use the mouse to highlight everything by right clicking 3 times rapidly or pressing the left mouse button down at the start of the document then scrolling to the end of the document while holding the button down and then releasing at the end of the document.
  2. Then go to the FORMAT tab and selecting FONT from the drop down list.
  3. Then select the colour you with to use from the FONT COLOUR box drop down list. Just be sure to choose a readable colour and not choose automatic or pure black.
  4. Once this is done you can print.
Note that images that use black will still print but will look strange without the pure black content but muckhof what appears to be black acually isn't and is a combination of the 3 / 5 or 6 other colours inthe printer so may print normally.

I can't write words in excel or word documents


Sounds like your copy of MS Office has been disabled or has corruption issues. If it's a recent installation, perhaps you haven't activated it. Try clicking Microsoft Office Button; then click Word Options; click Resources; then click Activate and follow instructions.

For additional help/info on activating MS software, try this:

Cannot Create PDF from Word Document Using Adobe Professional 6.0


You can try to create PDF file directly from Microsoft Word. Adobe Acrobat Professional installs a virtual printer on your computer. Print the document from Microsoft Word, but make sure you select appropriate printer from the list. It should be called "Adobe Acrobat PDF Printer", or similar.

I want a code for a program.the program is "Finds out all the html files in a folder including subfolders and writes the file details to file like file name, file path?"


Just download a Program Called Clipname It's Freeware, and it Creates Text files of everything you Select & Highlight.
Then just use the Windows Find Files & Folders Util & Use the following search String in the search field :

*.HTML

That will find all folders with HTML Files in, then all you do is Select & Highlight them all & Right Click, choose Clipname & whatever the type of information that you want it to create in Text format.

Printing pdfs with highlighted text/shaded areas


That just means that you don't have a postscript enabled printer, or possibly you're using a black and white only printer. You might be able to print highlighted items normally on other printers, but will have to remove the highlighting to see the text on the one that you have. Alternatively, if removing the highlights isn't possible, you might try selecting all the text and then pasting that into a new document in a word processor or another similar program. If you do have a color printer, and need to print what you're seeing, you can arrange the document so that it is centered on your screen and then press: "Alt + Print Screen" at the same time. You can then open MS Paint or a similar photo editing program and paste ("Ctrl + V") the screen capture into the program.

Let us know if you need further help.

Hope this will FixYa!!!
