what version of Word do you have? Here's a link for Word 2002 -sm
This looks like a long and drawn out thing to do, but it's not that hard really.

When I did it, I checked and found that I had the support template already in the folder, so I was able to skip down to "Back up your AutoCorrect entries on source computer." It's named support.dot and is found here:

C:Program FilesMicrosoft OfficeOffice10Macros

Just following the instructions closely, it was really easy.

If you don't have Word 2002, I think there are other methods avaialable.

Here's the link:

Can you transfer them from Word 2002 to Word 2003?
I was able to transfer mine from one computer to another when I had Word 2002 on both of them.  Now I have a new computer with Word 2003, and have not been able to do it.  The autocorrect has a different file name. 
Word 2007, Word 2002, or 2003
How many transcriptionists have switched to these versions of Word?  I am still using Word 2000, and it works well for me, but have been offered job with a company that uses Word 2007, and another company that will let you use Word 2002 or 2003.  I am fighting this and am at the point where I just might not accept a new job because of this change.  I can't imagine why they would want to change from Word 2000.  Your opinions, please.  Thank you.
Word 2002
Try E-Bay--that's where I got mine.
Word 2002
I ordered an OEM version of MS Works Suite 2004 from an online discount software distributor, and it came with it. I had MS Word 2000 that was corrupted. I do not remember the name of the distributor, but I think it started with a V. I think I typed in "discount software" or "cheap software" and that came up. Word 2002 also comes in Works Suite 2005, as that was on a new computer I bought.
Word 2002 help
I have a problem that's driving me crazy.  When typing in Word, it will automatically capitalize the beginning of a new sentence, EXCEPT when the prior sentence ends in a number.  Does anyone know how to change this so that it will capitalize a new sentence following a number?  TIA
Help with my Word 2002

I do not know what I did, but everytime I type b.i.d., my word automatically capitalizes the I so it looks like b.I.d.  It is such a pain because I have to go back and fix it.  does any know what I did to change this?  and how can I fix it?  thanks.

Where can I get Microsoft Word 2002? sm

Is there a place on-line where I can purchase it and download it?  If not, where can I get a good deal on it?  I need it ASAP!


I bought OEM MS Word 2002 for cheap too! (nm)

Sorry about that, I am using Word 2002! Thanks for the info about the key assigments. sm
I did try searching for help in the office assistant and didn't really get much help. It always seems that there are other people out there who are sooo incredibly proficient at Word that it amazes me. I have only been using Word for about 6 to 7 months now, after using WP5.1 for about 4 years. Thanks
Word 2002 versus 2003
I use 2003, is there a huge difference?  Is 2002 more user friendly or is that just the one you are required to have?
Word 2003 or 2000 or 2002?
Hi y'all. I have to change from WOrd 97 to Word 2003 or 2000 or 2002?

Do y'all have a FAVORITE, and can you tell me WHY? Just a short email would do it and would be so appreciated here.

Thanks everyone for input. I really appreciate it. I'm using XP Media Center 2005 and it has 2003 on it that I can buy. My main thing was that with it I could not do like 5mg and have the space between the drug dose automatically come in from my expander. But, as soon as I get the new version of Word, I'm getting Instant Text and maybe that will help. I need to upgrade so I can purchase the IT and Steadman's, and Steadman's needs a newer version. Also, I'd like to get some newer features than 97, hopefully one of the newer versions will be more conducive to production?

Thanks to all who reply. You can email me or post. Thanks much.
I'm using Word 2002 with Vista with no problems. nm
You'd be limiting yourself. It only works in MS Word 2000 & 2002.
Lots of people have had problems getting Smartype to work in Word 2003 and you can forget 2007. It doesn't work in different platforms either. You'd be much better off looking at ShortHand or Instant Text.
No, the Works Suite 2003 and 2005 have Word 2002.
My Word 2002 shows plus or minus symbols in outline view.
Are you sure you're in outline view?
If you are using Word it's control+E nm
Key word here is CONTROL - you need to take some back
Bolds in Bayscribe

I just started using Bayscribe (this is my 3rd day).  I imported my MSW AutoCorrect file to Bayscribe, but lots of it doesn't work, and what does and does not work is pretty random.  I have had to delete and re-enter many of my shortcuts, in exactly the same way - THEN they work.  Go figure.  Something got scrambled in the import.

I was told that I needed to delete all my bolded headings from the file before the import because they would not work in Bayscribe, or would not work with the hospital's software when the report got there.   

Question:  My expansion for -year-old has always been YO and it always expanded after a numeral but in Bayscribe this will not work.  Nor can I get just year-old to expand after a number with a hyphen (i.e. 80-) .  The expansions will only work after a space.  If you have a trick to get expansions to work after a number or a hyphen I'd love to know it.

SpeedType question...more advanced function (inserting subscripts, bolds, etc.)
Does anyone know how to insert subscripts, bolds, etc., into Speedtype? Is there a way to do it by inserting macros? Cut and paste, etc.? I am currently using WP 9 for most work. Do a little Word work also.
Foot pedal control/knee control? (sm)

My sewing machine has a knee control built into the side of the cabinet and I find this very comfortable.  I would like to somehow do the same with foot pedal I use for transcription.  Can figure out how to mount it, but having trouble adjusting it so the 3 pedals are not an issue.  ANyone done this or have any input? 


Foot pedal control/knee control
Though I have not had experience with this type of modification, I have repaired numerous footpedals and have some information that may be helpful. Generally, the footpedal is comprised of the primary circuit board, the wiring to the computer, and the three switches for play, rewind, and fast forward. These switches are easily removed from the pedal with a screwdriver. With basic soldering, you can lengthen the wiring to each switch, or even replace them with different switches you can get at a local electronics store. With a little bit of creative engineering, you could mount some knee -controllable switches that could control the footpedal.

Just two since 2002.

I'm a "cling-on" from a local small MTSO that bought out by a national, and now I work for that national.

Year 2002
I must be feeling cranky today.  Why do doctors think they have to say the patient had a procedure in year 2002, like the reader wouldn't know a year is meant unless 2002 is prefaced by the word year?  We are more than half way through the decade.  By now everyone is comfortable with year numbers starting with 2000 instead of 1900.  Drives me nuts!
Have been using it since 2002 without problem. nm
Stolen Summer (2002).

In 1970s Chicago, two boys bridge the sectarian divide between the Jewish and Irish-Catholic faiths and forge a friendship. When the Jewish boy discovers he is dying, his Christian friend vows to assist him in his quest to go to heaven, with predictable reactions from their families. This film is the result of Matt Damon and Ben Affleck's Project Greenlight and was well received at the 2002 Sundance Film Festival.

2002 Dodge Durango. (nm)
About the BOS-2, we are talking about the 2002 edition?
started at about 8K PT 2002, last couple years 12K but
I did not work much in 2005 for about 6 months when my 5-y/o got diagnosed with cancer and going through chemo, etc. So I would have made a bit more. I expect to do about $16K this year. I alternate my hours a lot though, about 60 or so minutes of work during the school year a day, but then only 30 during the summer, plus a side job that fluctuates ($300-500 a month). I am shooting for $20K next year, still not at FT (5-6 hours a day). I'll see how it goes. I think $12K for PT is good, but that is my opinion.
Love my 2002 Red Jeep Liberty (sm)
It is my favorite vehicle so far. My dad also works at a Dodge/Chrysler dealership so that is the way to go! He also drives a Dodge Intrepid and Durango. Check out the following link on a funny tidbit about Dodge--I hope you can pull it up.

Microsoft Word.. The oold Word used to do this and I'm new to 2003 Word..nm
Thank you.. you are right. I'm in control of what I do about this!
Why do you let this man control you? (sm)

Confront him about his actions.  Do not hold back.  If it continues, then discuss the problem with all your family members.  You are letting him run your life.  Then let your mother et AL decide whether they want to see you on your terms or if they prefer to have no relationship.  

All this animosity will eat your alive.  Get it off your chest and you do not need a counselor to do it.  Just be yourself and be honest and upfront with him. 

Control-B - nm
cannot control what others do
Personally I would just stop having anything to do with her.  I would tell your husband why and no one else.  Just stop doing anything with her, talking to her, etc.  If you have kids, unless the kids are asking to see her, carry on with your life.  And don't say it isn't that easy.  It is.  And what she does is what she does.  What you do is what you do.  What you and your husband have together is outside of what she does.  Keep it simple.  Don't say anything negative about her.  I know you have hurt but you said you worked though it.  You can do that with this too.  Be strong. 
The key to all of this is control+K
which allows the next keystroke to be entered as the command, in your case hit control B. When the box comes up, make sure the control box is checked, not shift or Alt, and then click okay. repeat at end of phrase.
Out of control
Although working from home is great - I have always felt as if the company that I worked for was more in control of my life than I was. Telling me when I had to have something done - even though they never live up to their own standards. One very well-thought of company on this board is just that way - I have QA sitting out there from the weekend and it hasn't been checked yet, but once it is, they will expect me to have it done in 30 minutes and to the hospital - I'm ready to give up this profession or vocation or whatever anyone wants to call it.
Control key. nm
Control T
Some EXText users have the ability to reveiw old jobs--say you want to look at a physical exam for the dictator you're working on or you want to verify a dosage for a drug on a patient you're working .  You can Control/S, then in the screen that pops up you can chose by date, trans ID, provider name, patient name, etc.  In the documents that come up based on the parameters that you entered, you can select one of those documents.  It's also a way to review what QA filled for any blanks you might have had.  When you are finished reviewing, you Control/T to get out of that document and your working document pops back up.  Working documents you Control/N.  Reviewing documents (read only), Control/T.
Hang in there....it will improve as time goes on.
I am actively searching for a new company. This is a no-win situation.
I don't know nor do I have control over the MT
community.  What I can control is my own career.  Other MTs have to take control of their careers, too.  IMHO, to work for an MTSO/get paid by production as a newbie MT is career suicide.  I never made less than, equal to or close to a housekeeper as a newbie.  I started as a medical-legal word processor of sorts - self-taught - took classes here and there and the rest is history.  My advice to new MTs is to get a job as a file clerk or other admin in a hospital or med group and work your way into a MT clerk and then MT position.  You already have your foot in the door by the fact that you are an employee of the hospital or med group 
And we also have a bit more control over the

Sorry, I meant to say hit Control-Alt-UP
It's difficult but necessary to be in control
Otherwise you are simply allowing little Hitlers to grow up and become *adults* - your job is not to be their friend, your job is to be their parent.

Why would you allow your kids to have friends that you wouldn't allow in your house if they were your friends?

Why would you allow filthy language, out-of-control behavior, and downright liars even on your property?

Are you afraid of your kids? if so, why?

Good luck
sorry, don't think it's either new or damage control
