If you don’t have an Exchange server you can create an auto-reply template:
- Create a message reply to send an automatic reply to your emails. In Tools | Rules and Alerts create a new rule (Start from a blank rule, click Check messages when they arrive)
Please note that this rule will send the reply only one time to each sender (Outlook will save a list of email addresses it has responded to prevent sending repetitive replies, but if the Outlook is closed the list is deleted)
If you want to receive replies to your emails on a different email address then that from which you originally sent the email you can use the Direct Replies To option.
Create a new message and click the Options tab and then click the Direct Replies To option in the More Options section.
Under Delivery Options make sure that he Have Replies sent to check box is checked (it automatically checks when you type an email address) and specify the email address where to sent the replies to this email message.
Now the replies to this email messages will go to the specified email address.
Styles get corrupted when a document that was created in a newer version of Microsoft Word is edited in a older version. Basically the newer version brings in the style definitions (embedded in the file) that the old version doesn’t “understand” and cannot interpret.
To fix this problem go to Styles and Formatting pane and select Show: Custom; find all instances of the char style and delete them (one at a time)
Sometimes the files cannot be deleted and you can run a macro to remove them:
Dim style As Word.style, doc As Word.Document
Set doc = ActiveDocument
Set style = doc.Styles.Add(Name:=”replaced”)
On Error Resume Next
doc.Styles(“Name_of_the_Style”).LinkStyle = style
I was having a problem with the cells containing hyperlinks – the font was changing automatically into the default one (even though I have selected all cells and applied a different font).
In order to configure Excel to use the same font face/size as the one you selected for the entire sheet (or group of cells) you need to create a new default template that will load at startup. They didn’t make it easy to do in Office 2007! But here’s how:
- Open a new blank worksheet.
- Insert > Hyperlink > Paste in any link
- Home > Styles > Right click on the ‘Hyperlink style’ > Modify > Set your font options
- You probably will want to do the same for the ‘Followed Hyperlink’ style
- Delete the hyperlink.
- File > Save As > Other formats
- Browse to “%APPDATA%MicrosoftExcelXLSTART” (Copy/Paste that into the File name field and press Enter to get there easily)
- Save as type: Excel Template (.xltx)
- File name: Book.xltx
Now whenever you start Excel or create a new workbook, the hyperlink font should be the one you choose.

To view two parts of the same document, click on the View tab on the Word Ribbon and locate the section named Window and the click on the Split button.
Word will immediately place a grey line on the screen that you can move up and down with your mouse. This line is simply where you want the split to be on the screen. Just click the left mouse button where you want the initial split. You can move it anywhere to make one or the other split screens the size you want.
Notice that you now have two views of the same document. You can scroll each one independently of the other and see two places in your word document at the same time.
Each view of the document is treated like two separate documents even though you are viewing the same one. You can zoom, scroll, and even change the type of view (print, draft, outline, etc.) for each view individually. Any changes you make into one view will be made to the other view as well. You can edit the text in either view by simply clicking on it and typing.
Almost every Word document includes information such as hidden text, Object info, Personal Information, and other invisible info stored as metadata.
To remove this information, Word 2007 has a feature called Inspect Document which lets user inspect for these hidden elements and to remove them. To do so, open the document which you want to thoroughly inspect for hidden elements. Click the Office Button and go to Prepare and select Inspect Document.
This will bring up Document Inspector dialog, listing all options for inspecting: Comments, Revisions, Version, Document Properties, Personal Info, XML Data, Headers, Footers, Watermarks, Invisible Content, and Hidden Text, etc.
Enable desired options available in the list and click Inspect.
It will start inspecting for specified elements. Once inspection is completed , you can remove the inspected elements from the document by clicking Remove All with each option you’ve selected.
If you click on Remove All, it will instantly remove all the specified elements from the document.
Now your document is safe, and you can start preparing it for generic distribution.
