Question about Computers & Internet

I am using Microsoft Works 8.5 and Windows XP Home. I want to be able to put a graphic and text into a table. I would like to either use a text box in a cell or wrap text around the graphic. I can not do either. I am trying to make name badges. Must use Works.

    Thank you for your response. However, it doesn't work.

    I already have the name badges bought and have made them in Ms Word without any problems, but I now need to do it in Ms Works.

    I went to Tools>Labels and went to the Avery label, but it still creates a table, and I can not bring in a text box or can I bring in a graphic and then apply text wrap tight.

    There doesn't appear to be any way to bring in the grapic and then get the text to type along side of it.

    If you have Works, try it, and see what I'm missing.

    Thanks so much.

    Solution #1 is identical to what I tried to do except I made my own table instead of using Labels and Avery label. The problem is still putting a graphic and wrap around text in the same cell. I would like to solve this with a text box, but it appears you can not put a text box or make a graphic with wraparound text in a table cell.
    Does anyone have a work around?

  • donna406 Sep 05, 2009

    Yes, I have tried to take my Word template, which is a table, and bring it into Works. It doesn't work. When I try to do a Save As in Word, saving to .wps it quits responding. I have Word 2002.

    When I try to open a doc program - my table - into Works 8.5, it only brings in the last two cells. I have four rows and two columns.

    I have done updates on the programs and they are up to date, albeit not the latest.

    Any other ideas.

  • donna406 Sep 08, 2009

    I have been able to transfer documents from Word to MsWorks, but I can't do it with tables. And of course, the original problem I can not put a wraparound graphic or a text box in a table cell in Works 8.5. Please would someone who has Works 8.5 try it on their computer to see if there is a way to do this.

  • donna406 Sep 08, 2009

    I do not want to put this in a web site which I think is what you are explaining, CSS appears also to apply to web sites.

    My problem is straight forward using software Works 8.5.

    Please rethink your response.

    This appears to work great except I've forgotten a lot about how Paint works.

    I made my table in Works, put the images in, copied the table and pasted it into Paint.

    I was able to get the text in fine. My problem now is I can't print the table as I thought it should be.

    What is it about my procedure or printing that doesn't appear to work.

    Thanks so much - this is the first solution that came close to working.


  • donna406 Sep 12, 2009

    I didn't read the last part of copy/pasting back to Works. This doesn't work. I get nothing.

    Any suggestions?

There are two common methods explained here for wrapping text around images in HTML: Theimage attribute method and the table alignment method. You can also use CSS to wrap text around images explained here >>.

The first method called the image attribute method is simplest way to quickly add an image with text wrap.

First you will need to decide on the location you want the image to appear in proximity to your text content. There are things to consider like the overall image size in relation to the length of a paragraph. In the example I have a short paragraph with small text, so for example purposes I will use an image to match the scale of this example. I have decided to place the image (at the beginning of the paragraph) -- the red X shows where I initially placed the image but I used theimage attribute called align to make the image appear to the right. See example 1

Example 1: Image Attribute Method

I am using Microsoft Works - panda2.gif

TIP: You can create your images with a 5 pixel border matching the page background to provide more predictable spacing between images and text or use the table alignment method explained below. The code used to make this alignment happen was:

<img src="panda.gif" width="80" height="80" align="right">

You could also use the following depending on where you want images placed in relation to text. Here are other alignment options:


TDepending on the way text flows you may decide that you want a less crowded look or you might want to add a caption above and/or below the image. This can be achieved with thetable alignment method. The steps for the table method are listed below.

The table alignment method contains the image inside its own table at a set width that is the same as the image. The table as a whole is then set to align to the right as the example shows and given some cell padding for a defined border area. The cell padding is key to this approach and gives you flexibiity to create any spacing between text and images you want. The example HTML code is below using cell padding of "5" and table alignment to the right:

<table width="80" border="0" align="right" cellpadding="5" cellspacing="0">
<td align="center" valign="top">Caption Area<br>
<img src="images1/panda.gif" width="80" height="80"><br>
Caption Area</td>

Using this method allows you to also add a caption top and/or bottom of the image if you like.

TIP: Don't forget to add ALT attributes to your images! images provide little use to people with text/speech browsers, browsers with images turned off, and can benefit you from the perspective of keyword density for search engine optimization. Make your images useful to all of your visitors by describing the specific purpose inside the ALT attribute.

In the tools menu there should be a section dedicated to labels. Go to the page set-up and you'll find it there. Most of the options are from the Avery company. You can purchase name badge stationary at your local Staples or Office depot. When you bring it home look for the Avery standard guide number. XP has all these listed in the Works program under the "Programs" page scroll down to mailing labels and that will bring you to the Avery lists. Make sure to indicate that they will be individual lable not all the same,"unless" you want to hand write in the names later. That's it. Good luck. Dana

Can you put American greeting 8 on to windows 7 ?

The website / Microsoft site does not have any information if this software will work with Windows 7 / Vista, hence it would be a better idea to try installing it and see it it works. If it does not work with windows 7, windows 7 has a very good feature called XP mode to use old software and hardware which are compatible with XP but not with windows 7.

Please check the link below for details of what is XP mode in Windows 7
