I used to run it with Microsoft Office, but had too many problems so got rid of MS Office and just run 2000. I have been lucky that when I get .tmp file, I can just delete it. I got so mad when that would happen I was always doing a system restore. What a mess. I got rid of the MS Office and things settled down. I hope this helps.

Is any one running ExText with Word 2000 and EditScript with Word 2003 sm

I am interested to know if anyone is running two platforms with a different version of Word on one computer.

I am running eScription's ES with Word 2003 and want to run ExText but their version of Word is 2000.  Has anyone done this or doing it now.  If so, have you run into any problems. 

I can't seem to get a straightforward answer from the Techs at either company.    I can't just load ExText and jeopardize it interfering with eScription. 

I am interested to hear any and all comments.  Thank you so much in advance for any help!


Switching from Word 2000 to Word 2003...
Has anyone upgraded from W2000 to W2003? If so, did all your autocorrect entries and normals transfer easily? I would like to upgrade but don't want 2 lose my shortcuts and expanders! TIA

No, have 2 wood stoves and 4 cords of wood that some old guy
Try Word 2000
Look at some online discount software places. I picked up Word 2000 CD only (no book, no frills) for $30. Seems most of these outfits require Word 2000 and up. Try softwareoutlet.com; that's where I got my CD.
Word 2000
Hi All !   I'm using Word 2000.  Is it necessary to upgrade to newer versions of Word? 
word 2000
Anybody know if MS Word 2000...

can be used with Vista.  I want to go out and get a new laptop this Monday.  I have word 2000.  I looked on the web and found Word 2007 but it is quite expensive.  I would rather not have to purchase word 2007 and new pc as that is a bit  pricey for me right now.  Any help would be much appreciated. 

Thank you.

word 2000
thanks for any help!

I do this with Microsoft Word 2000. nm
I bought Word 2000 for $30
at softwareoutlet.com. It was CD only, what they call OEM.

Personally, I don't care what bells and whistles the newer versions may have, I refuse to pay hundreds of dollars for a word processing program.
I use word 2000 and have the same problem
I put "year-old" into my Expander as "yo" and when I type the number, I put the dash after it, like 10- then the "yo" without a space and it works.

What Version of Word do you like? 2000 or?
I'm getting a new computer pretty soon and am wondering what version of Word to get with it. I am only familiar with Word 97 and I like some of the things about that.

I need a version that will automatically CAPITALIZE after a period. Couldn't live with that.

Thanks for all your help. Couldn't make it without my MT buddies!
Were is *acl file in Word 2000? NM
Where is *acl file in Word 2000? TX
My Word 2000 started doing this, and I
problem plus I had header problems.  The header was staying huge even after changing my normal.dot.  I tried MS help to no avail.  The header problem occurred after opening an attachment from an e-mail from the company I work for with a header that was like 3 inches to accomodate a letterhead.  This wound up changing every single Word document to a new header.  I finally just trashed the whole shebang and started with another tower and am running XP with Office 2003.  Good luck, but I still don't know what happened!
Word 2000 question
I have a next page break in between each report, but after page 3, it started back numbering 1.  Never had this happen before.  Anyone know what's going on or how to fix it?  I don't want the page # inserted on the page just to show on the lower left toolbar in correct order for printing purposes.

Jump code used in Word 2000
I'm hoping someone can help ~ I just started a new job where I'm working in Word 2000. My question is this ~ There are a lot of normals that I'm using for doctors and I need to figure out how to jump around the report (sets of ??) without having to use the mouse constantly. I've worked in a few different programs before, but never Word. Chartscript used, I believe, Ctr J to jump around. Anyway, I do think there is a way I can do this, macro maybe? Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!!
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.
Try eBay. i got my MS Word 2000 there along with a COA and the code. nm
I googled it and Word 2000 is supported
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.
setting default view in Word 2000
My default view has changed to 90% and I have to manually change every report. Is there a way to fix this so it pulls in on the normal view every time?
What is the version of word for windows that works best for you? Still working off 2000.
Word hasn't capped after a colon since the 2000 version.
You have to manually cap with shift key or run a macro at the end of the report. You can also hit shift+f3 to change the case to upper.
i have word 2000 free standing as well with no problems. email support, they will help you shortly.
you shouldn't struggle with having problems. support is there to help us and they are good at their job. as with any new acct, there are always gonna be some kinks. i had some to work out as well with my end of the system. it doesn't sound like something you can fix; probably something with how the two tie in together. did you log out and back in and see if that helped?
ExtText by Dictaphone -- Word 2000 - won't capitalize when making a new paragraph or after lists?
Hi. I am new at a job. The Word 2000 running in ExtText (Dictaphone) will not capitalize at the beginning of a new paragraph (never had that happen before), nor after numbers in an automatic list, and sometimes even just after plain periods, not just periods used in numbers (like hemoglobin 7.5).

What is going on? It works fine in the Word version on my computer, but when it ties with ExtText, it "forgets" to capitalize. It is especially annoying with lists, and also at the first of paragraphs, I never had to babysit that before.

Any help? TX

why do some women knock childrearing?

I think that mothers that can stay at home while working and raising a kid or two is wonderful, and YES being an MT mom at home is a career. I've spent many many years in the workforce outside the home, single and married, with and without kids. Not all of us working moms fit the stereotype (if there is one) that we don't know how to find jobs outside of being an MT at home. I have a BS degree from a real accredited university and everything (one I'm sure everyone has heard of), plus what I learned from MT schooling. I'm not trying to say I'm sooo smart or anything, but just trying to shoot down the idea about stay-at-home moms not caring about careers or anything, just pumping out the kids. I am not a supplement to my husband's income. We absolutely need what I bring in financially. I took a pay cut when I was making as much as my husband at one point outside the home because I wanted to have a career that I loved while raising kids. I didn't want my kids being raised by strangers in daycare. So there to all of you who look down at MT moms.


Give it a shot, but don't knock yourself out.

Just adopt a steady, calm exterior as you perform both jobs.  I would not try to get it all done.  I would do what I could but not frantically.  That's all you can physically do.  They can't expect all of it to get done with all of those interruptions.  It's not conducive to doing good work for either "hat" you are wearing. 

And since they are so fond of doubling up duties, tell them you'd like a free Pap smear, since they are doctors and went to med school.  Sheesh.  This is the most put-upon career, and it never stops to astonish me what new lows people will go to, to cheat us.  They must be good limbo dancers. 

Good luck to you. 

Could we knock off the diagnostics, please? They're not helpful. nm
Wood heat, here...

Good thing.  It was 6 degrees here yesterday morning.  Have enough wood stockpiled to last through this winter and halfway into next and I have a +2600 square foot farmhouse.  Also have the LP tank full in case the furnace kicks in.

Now, before I pat myself on the back too hard, let me say that wood heat is a LOT of work and time-consuming and very very very messy.  It's almost like a second job in some ways. 

Wood heat here too
I'm so glad we got an outdoor wood furnace a few years back. We haven't had to buy/use LP for 4 winters now. I'll put up with the work as long as I don't have those high oil prices anymore.
Yes, we just put in a wood stove and turned off
the furnace out in the shop. We know of a guy who gives away free scrap wood, so we're heating the shop for free this year. That'll save quite a chunk of change. I wish we hadn't taken the wood stove out of the house, but it would have cost too much to bring it up to code. Other than that, put on more clothes, extra blankets on the beds, and turn the heat down.
yup, 52 here and between m-pause and wood heat
sometimes i purt near melt!!
Wood versus gas, if just using a fireplace
without having an insert or some type of blower most likely you will be better off using another heat source because of the heat loss through the fireplace, unless you aren't using any other heat source.  We have gas heat and prices are expected to increase 70%.  We had gas logs but had them removed because we couldn't afford to burn them even for the mood affect and that was a couple of years ago.  
cord of wood, not cords.
4 cord of wood
have used wood heat for 20+ years
and we have moved a lot, so had to install numerous times. My husband does it. You can spend a ton of $ on a stove, but we prefer the little inexpensive 'box' type stove. They radiate heat well, you can cook on them, control the 'draft', etc. THey put out a lot of heat. If you have a stove that needs a blower to distribute heat, you'll be in a lurch when the power goes out. Also, your stovepipe must go i think it is 4 ft taller than the high point of your roof in order to draw the air correctly. You must get the fire hot enough often to burn out the creosote or keep it from building up. Learning how to build a fire can be challenging -- but once its going, the coals generated will make it easy to keep going. and please make sure you use smoke alarms on each floor.
Brother-in-law has been using outside wood furnace
for many, many years and loves it.  It sits out back of their house less than 50 feet (I would guess) from their back door.  They also cool their house with it (need an exchanger of some sort) and heat their pool water.  He is pretty clever and worked out the plumbing for the pool by himself.  They do have to spend part of their summer looking and cutting and hauling their wood supply but they think it is worth it.  Hope this helps.
outdoor wood boilers
If you live in the north, where our temp is currently 11 degrees, investing in an outdoor wood boiler is the way to go. I don't think you can have them in the city, but if you live out of town, wood is definately cheaper than propane. We can fill our tank once a year (approximately $550)
I haven't put wood in microwave yet...LOL....nm
We are paying as we go.... We also have 2 wood stoves, BUT...
the problem you can run into is that your heating system won't call for heat because the inside of the house is warm, then the water in your heating pipes just sits and goes cold and can freeze and burst as it runs along some of the outer walls of the house.  That happened to us last winter and cost 500 dollars to call a plumber out. 
Use mother nature's WOOD HEAT !!
and maybe get a down comforter for the back bedroom...
Can I come to your house? I miss wood heat (sm)

That was our only heat source for over 20 years. It started out as a backup heat source, but soon became our only source.  We lived in a 5 room house back then and it heated the whole place.  If it was 5 degrees outside, it was wonderful to walk into the house. It felt like a cozy warm blanket wrapping around you as soon as you opened the door.  I was never cold. We kept a metal box fan behind it to blow the heat through the rest of the house, and a 30 gal soup pot on top filled with water for humidity. I even cooked a lot of meals on top. Had a whole set of cast iron pans, including the dutch oven. Meals were great. The only thing I didn't like was the "dirt" from the wood.

We now have forced hot air. I hate it. I'm always cold. I still have the wood stove but it's in the storage shed. Can't talk DH into installing it in the house. The only time I am warm is when I go up to the garage where my DH has an old Kenmore apartment size wood/coal kitchen stove that I bought for him a couple years ago. Guess where I spend all my free time...

Had a flu shots ::knocking on wood:: and so far so good
Two little neighbor girls came over to play. They told me that they had been ill with the flu. I asked them to come back in a week to play (their mother will not let them come over now...).
Are you talking about putting a wood burning stove outside or one of
those furnance box things that you burn wood in and vent it to heat the house?  If you are asking about the latter we don't have one, but have looked into it.  They are about $5,000.00, but other than that I don't know anything about them.
