Read Scan to MS Word by Kenneth Major @ 5/1/2012
Thanks Richard,  you say to put it as a background,  but I can only find  'Watermark'  'Page Colour' and 'Page Borders'.
As you can tell I am not very adept at Word

Reply from Richard Rost:

Just make sure it's the bottom-most image on your page. You don't need to make it an ACTUAL background. Just make sure all of your text boxes are layered on top of it (there are Send To Back and Bring To Front buttons you can use).

Is it possible to scan a document or Form into word then fill it in and save or print

Reply from Richard Rost:

It's possible. If this isn't something you do often, you can scan the image and then place it as a background in your Word document. Add text boxes over the spots where information should go, and that would suffice. However, if you're going to do this on a regular basis, I'd recommend software like Omniform that is specifically designed for this process. Also, if you have one form, or a small number of forms, that you're always having to do this with, you could make an Access Report out of it and design an on-screen form to type the data into, but the printout would look like your paper form.

Read Footer in MS Word 2003 by Ravi @ 5/8/2010
I have a 5 page Document and I want to display Footer for only first two pages and the rest (pages 3 to 5) must be blank.
Please help me in this regard.
Thanks and Regards,

Answer from Richard Rost:

You can insert a SECTION BREAK and then have different headers and footers for the different sections. In your case, you'll want to insert the section break after page 2, then just clear the footer for section 2 (pages 3-5).

This is very similar to different page numbering schemes, which I have a tutorial for:

To set up different page numbering schemes inside your document, you need to set up SECTION BREAKS. See this tutorial:

If I created a letter and printed it closed the application without saving the document, is the letter traceable and/or still on my computer?

Answer from Richard Rost:

Probably not. Once you close Word, it deletes any temporary files that might possibly store that information (like the AutoSave file).

Sorry, but I'm afraid your file is probably gone. Try to get in the habit of hitting CTRL-S to save your documents REGULARLY while working on them, and certainly before printing.

I try to remember to hit CTRL-S every time I finish a paragraph.

Read MS Word 2007 - calculated fields by Phil @ 12/9/2008
I cannot seem to find help in Microsoft's help files for creating a formula field that references a value that is in another table. I have bookmarked the value but do not know how to reference it. Can anyone help??

We don't like what we don't understand.Microsoft Word is used more frequently than all of the other Microsoft products put together. The 2007 version of Microsoft Word should be your highest priority. When can we expect it?

I think that once I get the hang of the ribbon bar it will be easy. For now I am trying to figure out how to center titles, or texts for that matter and I know it is up there somewhere.

Richard, your explanations are very clear. For now I need to know the 2007 version of Word. And Outlook as well.

All in good time.
