There should be an icon in the toolbar that has an "A" and a "Z" and arrow going up or down. Highlight the text you want to sort and click that icon. If the icon is not there you might have to search Help to find where you can choose the sort option.

Why do my database files open up in notepad whenever I click it, is this normal? help please...


You have notepad set as your default text reader. If you have Word installed use that as your default. So go in set up your default programs you can do this by going to setup default programs in the start menu when you get there look for your default programs for .doc files etc and set it to open up using Word or whatever Word program you have other than notepad. It will not harm your computer if you open .doc or .txt files using notepad.

If you want a free Word Document for Office files or for writing purposes go to Open Office it is a free word processor Click Here, that does not cost anything and will even open most Microsoft Office documents as well. Thanks for using FixYa! John

All printout of correspondence is in small print. How do I increase the printout size?


Font type and size are usually set in the document processing application.
If it's a word .doc,you set the size in Word.
Anything you can paste to Wordpad,highlight the text and set the font size in the toolbar.

Problems with .docx files


For infomration on Office 2007 .DOCX file format, refer to http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/word/HA100444731033.aspx

I use Office 2003, and have installed and currently employ the "Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack for 2007 Office Word, Excel and PowerPoint File Formats" mentioned in article. This is, for the most part, seamless when reading in Office 2007 .DOCX or .PPTX files, for examples, in Office 2003.

Otherwise, in Office 2007, you can change and set your Word Options so that you can save files in a specific format, including a previous Office version to ensure compatibility.
See http://www.mydigitallife.info/2008/11/25/how-to-change-default-file-saving-format-from-docx-to-doc-in-word-2007/

Hope this makes sense... Good Luck!

A document I am working on somehow got changed to rich text format, I don't know how this happened or how to change it back.


If you have Microsoft word on you computer, you may do any one of these steps that you are most comfortable with. First, you may click the document twice to rename it eg "name.doc" insure that you put .doc at the end or you may right click the file and choose open with and select Microsoft word and then go to save as and save it as a word document. Or you can open the file in word-pad and copy the text and paste it in a word document and save it. Rich text format is a Microsoft word-pad document while .doc is a MS word document or now they have .docx.

hope this help you have a great day!

No new txt doc.


There is never ant option for .txt docs. It is only for a word doc and what you save it as is your problem. So, dont worry about it. After .txt you will ask for normal txt or rtf. The list is very long. So, the short cut is to open a new doc and save it as whatever you want.

Scan a Document and Need to edit in Word 2007


Most of the time a scanner by default, will scan a document in a tif or other image file format. That means that the scanned image is actually very similar to a photograph. In order to edit the text, you first have to convert the image using something that's called OCR software. OCR is a process that the software uses to look at a scanned document image and determine what characters are on the page. It's not always very accurate but that depends on the quality of the scan and on the OCR software being used. You must have received some sort of scanning software with the scanner. Hopefully it containes some sort of OCR software. Some scanners will save you this extra image manipulation by having a setting that allows you to scan directly to a word document. Usually in that configuration, the OCR software automatically knows to convert the scanned document image in order to automate the process. But either way, you first have to install the manufacturer's software. Hope this helps. Please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.

Editing a document that has no security on it


This is an interesting problem. Since you've already tried copy/paste to a new document, I'll assume you don't care about the file so much as the text in it.

First, make a copy of the file and let's experiment with that.

You said you cannot copy the text, but I'm not sure if that is because you cannot "select" the entire text of the document or because the copy function is simply not working on that file. If you're able to open the document at all, try using keyboard commands to perform the copy/paste. Open the doc and leave the cursor at the beginning of the text. Then attempt to select all the text by pressing Ctrl-A. If that works, then press Ctrl-C. Leave the document open and press Ctrl-N to open a new doc page. Then press Ctrl-V and see if the text pastes in. One important thing to know would be if the text pastes but exhibits the same 'symptom'. If so, attempt an EDIT, PASTE SPECIAL and try pasting "unformatted text". Unfortunately, that method will also remove your formatting.

Here's another approach that may allow you to retain most MS Word formatting items. Click START, RUN and type "wordpad" .. Then hit ENTER. This launches MS Wordpad which should be able to open most .doc files. Use the FILE, OPEN menu items to locate and attempt to open the document in question. If from here you are able to select all the text (Ctrl-A) and copy it (Ctrl-C) and paste it (Ctrl-V) into a new doc file, then we will move on to another possible option.

Another approach would be to download one of the many different .doc repair utilities that exist. There are a number of free ones as well.. repairmyword.com advertises a number of free utilities you may have luck with.

Hopefully one of these will help fix the matter... if not, let us know!

Good luck!

Scanning Problems


I would first make sure that you have latest driver update. MS Word is very particular about how it reads things back in. I would try saving the scan as a text file or PDF instead and then open them in Word. Hope this helps!

To fix the page layout to


Oomar,

Using Word with VB6, I show how you set the page size to A5:

Sub AutomateWord()
' Declare the variable.
Dim objWD As Word.Application
' Set the variable (runs new instance of Word.)
Set objWD = CreateObject("Word.Application")
' Add a new document.
objWD.Documents.Add
' Add some text.
objWD.Selection.TypeText "This is some text."
'Set Page Size
objWD.ActiveDocument.PageSetup.PaperSize = wdPaperA5
' Save the document.
objWD.ActiveDocument.SaveAs FileName:="mydoc.doc"
' Quit Word.
objWD.Quit
' Clear the variable from memory.
Set objWD = Nothing
End Sub

Hope this helps!

Printing a selection from a text


Hilight the text by using the mouse, and right click and select copy.

On your desktop, right click and select NEW, then select either Word (if you have it) or Wordpad.

A new document will appear on your desktop. Double click it to open, click in the body of the document, right click and select paste.

In the file menu select print. Once done you can either save the document or if it's just temporary exit without saving.

Leaving the new empty Word document on your desktop to use for next time isn't a bad idea. You could even rename it to "Temp Word Doc" or whatever you like.
