I can't understand your question, but it sounds like you're talking about
WordPad, not Word for windows. The first think you need to do is put
together a better description of the problem.

Also, you shouldn't post in HTML mode to newsgroups; use Plain Text instead.

Its deffinately a word dcument, its 85 pages and when i try to take a page of
the document and copy it to a file for better organization it saves as scrap,
once i reopen the scrap its no longer formatted the same way it once was.

Try the following macro http://www.gmayor.com/installing_macro.htm. This
copies and pastes selected text to a new document based on normal.dot.

Sub CopySelectedToNewDoc()
On Error GoTo oops
Selection.copy
Documents.Add Template:="Normal"
Selection.Paste
ActiveDocument.Save
End
oops:
MsgBox "Select the text you wish to copy first!"
End Sub

If your document is based on another template, change the template name.
