KILLING off the Fax Cover Sheet by
I'm using Word 2000 on XP Home. When I send a fax, the Fax Wizard opens up and wants me to choose a custom coversheet. I do not want that option. The reason is that even when I click NO, I wind up with extra files and folders in my Documents. I have a Fax Template in Word that I use. How can I...

I use Word 2000. I saved a document onto my USB drive. I went to school, plugged in the USB, and opened the document. The school computers have Word 2003 on them. I worked on the document. When it was finished, I inserted page numbers into the footer. Instead of numbering the pages from...

Horrible, just Horrible! (Attn: Mr. Kenyon) Word 2003 mucks up my 2000 files! by
OK folks. I'm using Word 2000 and I'm a happy camper. The school recently installed Word 2003. When I open my documents son the school's computers, all hell breaks loose. Of course, I have to put up with the annoying settings of the school's program, since they have not turned off the squiggly...

Forms? Checkboxes? Gray Shading? by
What have I got here? Some kind of a form -- it's got checkboxes. If you click on one, you get a dialog box. They have gray shading. I want to keep the checkboxes, and I'd like a user to pick one and check it. But I don't want the dialog boxes or the gray shading. I'm dealing with something...

Zero Width Space by
I've heard there is such a creature -- lets you use a slash, but lets the work break at the right margin. So typing "petitioner/respondent" can do a line break thusly: * * * petitioner/ respondent * * * In Word 2000, how do I get a zero-width space? *(((({

Determine if the total # of pages is ODD or EVEN by
Is it possible to use field codes to determine if the document has an odd or even number of pages? I have a couple of long-winded reasons for asking - but this is essentially what I need to know, if anyone has any thoughts. I just can't figure it out. Thanks.

Law & Footnotes by
Arrgh ! I've got to prepare a long document of a legal text. The footnotes run from 1-99, with occasional additional footnotes numbered 45.50, 45.55, etc. How do I create custom footnote entries for the extra footnotes? When I'm done with this document, is there a way to convert the footnotes to...

Continuous Break - isn't continuous by
I'm inserting Section breaks in order to force footnote numbering to restart at 1 "one". The section breaks often occur in the middle of a page. I specify a continuous section break. But Word 2000 takes me to a new page anyway! How do I get a truly "continuous" section break that will let me...

Footnotes - Keyboard Shortcut by

Fussy legal citation problem by
Has anybody figured out how to do legal citation in an easier way? I'm referring specifically to the comma following a case name -- it should not be underlined or italicized.
