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!

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

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?

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.

HTH
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!

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

I use Word 2000 and have had no problems. (knock on wood).
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.
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
Getting started as MT and looking up every other word?
You are kidding, right? I am so surprised. It takes quite a while, like 1 said above, to realize any $$$ from this. I had to stay in English as well as terminology books when I first started but I was being paid as I went along, just a basic salary and still over a year for training. I think you have wishful thinking. Have you read of any of these posts and what MTs are running up against in making a living nowdays- not only that but we are talking about trained professionals, not a newbie starting out. I think your rose colored glasses need a cleaning....With all the previous work I had done in hospitals, doctor offices, medical secretary, I was still not prepared for transcription. I, in my training year, used to go home each night almost in tears, the work was so hard, not what I expected. You are thinking about investing a lot of money, because it will cost a lot if the only thing you have is a desk, in a job which apparently you have no background on. Not a wise choice. If interested, why didnít you start with a terminology course first? Your surgery experience (20 years ago) and the medical secretary do nothing really to prepare you for transcription.
Thank you! When I started working in WORD ...sm
2 years ago I asked the same question and got no answer. My glasses need to be changed every 6 months since using WORD (OK...I'm over 55). thanks for the great advice!

What about over 2000?

THE POINT: The $2000 was for

knockoff or from the store is not a necessity in anybody's book and


is a slap in the face of the taxpayer who underwrote the $2000.


 


2000 is only the beginning

Believe me, that $2000 is only the beginning.  I do feel for these people but many of them are only used to hand outs and they will be getting them left and right.  Lets see how many of  them stand in line for a job.  I heard that WalMart will hire any evacuee, no matter what.  I wish they would report how many have been hired thus far.   I was watching Fox news the other day and one of the  guys they were talking to said something along the lines of "They aint helping us at all, its like they shipped us all on slave boats again"  He then said the F word, which Fox didn't see coming because you could hear it plain as day.  Now that is the state of mind of many of these people. Give me, give me.  The welfare system has tought many that the government will take care of them, they do not have to take care of themselves.  Now I am not talking about all the evacuees just the ones that are not used to fending for themselves.  


Okay, said what I had to say.  This just all gets to me.


 


2000 lines a day
I used to do 2000 lines a day but I had only 3 hospital accounts. Sure, it would be easier to do that many lines per day and more if you have easier accounts (and if you have 1, like yourself, definitely more), but unfortunately most people have lots of different accounts - and where I work, there are over 350 accounts and people sort of have to do whatever comes up, so it is MUCH more difficult to do. It all depends on if you are lucky enough to have 1 account, like yourself, or have to "go with the flow" with whatever comes up, which is infinitely more difficult. Kudos to those who can produce 2000 lines a day WHILE DOING lots of different, difficult accounts. YOU are the ones who truly deserve respect.
I do 2000 lines a day...but...sm
I also have to admit to having only five accounts, mostly with acute care, with only a few ESLs and few Op notes. We go live on the 15th so I probably won't be in the 2000 Club after that, although hopefully, as I get used to things, my numbers will climb back up.
2000 lines...
I think if you are an acute care MT with several different accounts and quite a few ESL dictators (normal for most hopsitals), if you kill yourself and resign yourself to having no life at all, you could do 2000 lines or more easily. However, I don't think it's worth it.
Those of you who do a lot of lines (2000+) a day,

Now I know a lot depends on how many characters per line but putting that aside:  How do you get in a lot of lines every day?


Do you sit and work nonstop?  Do you type at a leisurely pace or bang your keyboard as fast as you can?  Do you use an expander?  A word completion software like Smartype?  Are you able to keep up with everything else - house, kids, DH?  Do you just keep on typing till you get all the lines you want?  Do you set a goal for yourself each day, or just type every chance you get and what you end up with is okay with you?


Just wondering cause I know even though I've been an MT many years (23) I am sort of spoiled.  Had many years where I had easy money accounts and made money not really even trying and not working very hard.  Well now I have canned my own accounts and working for someone else at a respectable line rate - but I find myself wanting to type 1000 lines a day and stop and I need to make more money than that.  I guess I just got lazy! 


So if you don't mind, share your tips!


2000 lines a day

I can send you my line count sheets.  get one daily.  why would I get on here and lie. 


Had mine done in 2000 (I was 39) sm
outpatient hospital and the combined total with everything included came to nearly $10,000.  That was with the anesthesia fee, etc.  I didn't get them both done at the same time. Of course, I probably got charged more since I have insurance.  Did the worst one first and 5 weeks later did the second. What an absolutely amazing difference. I was severely nearsighted and doctor corrected it with a stronger lens and even though I still wear bifocal glasses (for astigmatism) I see so much clearer. I didn't even realize they were that bad.
I took it in 2000 and it was a breeze for me then.
But I didn't maintain it. Has it changed much, does anyone know? I keep hearing it's not easy and am just wondering if it's now more difficult than it used to be. I am trying to decide whether or not to do it again.
Transcribing since 2000, now 31....

2000 lines a day, and that is what I do.

I do 2000 lines a day

I work about 6-7 hours a day and do approximately 2000 lines in that time period.  My company only requires 1200 a day, but I want 2000 a day to have the money I want.


I get 2000 lines a day...

I get over 2000 lines a day, and I post on CafeMT all the time.  I work really hard to get over 2000 lines a day.  I work at least 9 hour days, and most of the time, those of us who hit those really high line counts work 10 or 12 hour days.  I also get a lot of ASR and I have a lot of expansions.  I also proof each and every report I send in.  I care just as much as anyone else about turning in good quality work. 


Why do you need 2000 for EXText?
nm
Since 2000, my income has gone down sm
every year and I am working more hours.  That's it in a nutshell.
I usually do 2000 in a 6-hour day. nm

To anyone doing 1600-2000 lines per day
Just wondering what exactly your day is like, how many breaks, do you have tons of macros, on average how many hours do you spend typing, how often do you get up.  The biggest question of all, don't you get hand cramps??  Anything over 1300 and my hands start cramping/getting numb!  Just tell us your secrets, I would love to produce at least 1800 daily!!!!
$2000 signon MQ bonus
i questioned those bonuses myself to my supervisor when I was turned down for a raise. how much sense does that make when it's a new person that has to learn the account? why not keep employees happy who are already there -- oh, excuse me, we're talking about MQ - nothing logical seems to rule. like i've seen so many say maybe there is something else going on that we don't know about.

as to your career change, i'm contemplating the same thing myself, just haven't figured out what because the transcription business is not about the MT anymore.
Poll- more than 2000 lines/day

It seems like a lot of people on this board think that 2000 lines is unheard of.  Are there any Transcriptionist out there that CAN make this?  I have a pretty easy account, but I can do upwards of 3000+ lines per day.  ANY one else out there?


Just wanted to say that I have mine set at 2000 as well. :) nm

I always strive for 2000/day BUT lately the work has not been there
so I can't do that. Last week I only got a little over 7,000 and that was leaving my computer on after my shift and catching extra reports here and there as they came in. I'm about to start looking for another job. The account I work on is always 2 days behind. Suddenly, they're sending us less than half of what they usually send us and my managers are even thinking they're probably heading out the door and trying out another company??? I hate the ups and downs in this business.
