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!!
Setting up macro in Word for jump code...inside
(you can actually use any key on the keyboard, I actually use F3 because it doesn't seem to interfere with anyting.)

I call it a "jumpcode" and what you need to do is create a Word macro for it. For example, I use (Alt + /) to insert blanks in a document. Now if I want to jump to the blanks I use (Alt + >). In reading your question, it sounds as if the symbol you want to "jump" to is already in the document, so you would just have to define the jumpcode for that prompt.

So, first create your macro.
1. Tools - Macro - Record New Macro.
2. Name your macro (ex. Jumpcode) or use the default Macro name
3. Assign macro to Keyboard.
5. Select Assign - Close
6. You will then notice the "record macro function" come on (symbol of a little tape cassette will appear on screen). All key strokes from this point will be recorded until you turn off record macro function.
7. Recording your macro. Since the jumpcode you want to jump to is the >" you should set it up this way:
A. Ctrl + F (the find function). This will pull up the "Find and Replace" box.
B. Type in the prompt you want to find which would be >"
C. Hit "Find Next"
D. Then close "Find and Replace" box.
E. Stop recording. (Hit the square in the record macro icon)

Now when you hit "Alt + J" system should jump to the >" prompt in your document

JUMP code
I need to insert a "code" so I can jump from one place to another in document. using WORD 2002 XP. I had a macro set up for this and lost it and have tried to make another one, but when I try to do any macro Microsoft Visual Basics pops up. It will not allow me to assign anything to the keyboard...ANYONE? TIA
If you want to see the jump code, turn on the
Choose "Tools" then "Options" and on the "View tab" under "Formatting marks" check the "all" box. You will then see all codes including hard returns, spaces, etc., but it will show you the jump codes then.
Jump markers in Word
Can you please tell me how you created these in Word. Still trying to figure that out. TIA!
Need Word help again please :) (jump codes)

I posted yesterday about the jump codes. I put the brackets in by ctrl F9 and that worked great. The problem is that once I save it, I have to get the normal back to the screen when I want to use it by going to insert and then file and clicking on that normal. Once it loads the normal, all the brackets I inserted have turned to little square symbols and the F11 function is not working on them anymore.

Any ideas on what else I could do? I have to use the file and then insert though to retrieve the normal.

Thanks in advance!!

For jump codes in MS Word,
I believe that when you are setting up your template you use F9 to create the jump to field, and then use F11 to jump to it when you are transcribing.
Can you use any of the other Word shortcuts to jump around? Such as...
Ctrl+Right Arrow jumps to the next word on the right
Ctrl+Down Arrow jumps to the next paragraph (or paragraph mark)
Ctrl+Up Arrow jumps to the previous paragraph
Ctrl+Delete deletes one word to the right
Ctrl+Backspace deletes one word to the left

There are a bunch more shortcuts.

Try eBay. i got my MS Word 2000 there along with a COA and the code. nm
I have researched on this board for help with inserting a "jump code" in a template, but all the examples do not seem to work or I cannot find the sections needed in Word to set this up in Word 2007...this is not a trial version.  Any computer savvy person out there to help?  I have tried with the Ctl +F9, but although the brackets show up in the document, hitting F11 doesn't move the cursor back up to the place of insertion.  The other tip I found suggested going to View - toolbar - check forms, etc, but I cannot even find that in 2007 - I found View, but that's it.  Nothing near close to what the rest of the tip says.  Any help would be appreciated.  I have lots of normals that I would like to have this "jump code" in.....TIA.
What's the code to insert a degree symbol in MS-Word...
I know it's alt+ a set of numbers.  Thanks! 
I use Word 2003 and I have text boxes I jump to using the F11 key. I have no idea what I did, but

using the F11 key, but I want to see the boxes where I enter the text. 

Any ideas on how to fix this?


Tag code?
Not sure what you mean by tag code.
Tax code
In Ohio, since there is no actual code that reflects transcription, we use 99999. Worked for me with no problems.
Used to code

Coding is a game where the rules constantly change and they won't tell you what they are - but will gladly penalize you and your employer because you "should have known" all the rules they won't tell you.  They actually have codes that are "blacked out" - in other words, they know what the right code is that will cause them to pay for a procedure, but its a secret beknownst only to them.  "They" being the federal government - they say "ignorance of the rules is no excuse" but won't tell the rules.  You fly by the seat of your pants.  You can attend seminars all year long but still not know if you're doing it right.  You live in constant fear of a Medicare audit where they will find the wrong code and accuse you and your employer of fraud, fine/jail the both of you, and pull the doctor's license. In transcription - the blame for errors ultimately goes to the doctor.  In coding - the blame gets spread around.  If that sounds like fun, go ahead.

Where do you put the code?
code key
The code key that goes with the software is probably triggered to tell it that it's already been installed once.  It's an anit-piracy device.  What you may need to do is call the software support line for the software and explain the situation.  They may be able to give you a new code key for the installation.
Code of Conduct
This thing is REALLY for the ones that got all the lawsuits started, now WE have to suffer. At least we get paid for probably the most boring hour on earth!!
Also, see what diagnosis code
they used to bill.  Might have been billed as a screening and that's sometimes a no-no as far as getting things paid.  Obviously, you can't lie, but see if she had any symptoms at all that might justify the test.

Anyone know what this is?

MT or Code question
I am an experienced MT/now quality auditor---I've taken coding courses and am considering going for certification but for now it's on the back burner.  The experience I have as an MT is invaluable as a coder---if you don't know medical terminology, you will learn it in a legitimate coding course but it sure was a benefit to me in the coding course I took to have the MT background.  Coding is harder to get into than transcribing (my experience anyway) because you need to apprentice (in order to get your certification) and then usually start at a entry level even not as a coder at a low rate of pay when you are first working as a coder.  I know the earning potential is enormous as a coder though.  This is not to say all coding jobs start out this way, just what I've found.  I have a couple of friends from my class who are coding, but it is really hard and takes a lot of knowlege but I imagine would be rewarding once you get established.
You would use the code *11 for the headset
I used to code in house
I wasn't cut out to be a coder, but I did fine at the coding itself.  I coded and billed radiology.  I had a problem dealing with the people end of the business - dealing with patients who called screaming that their insurance didn't pay because I didn't do "my job" right; dealing with ordering physicians who gave routinely unpayable reasons for tests and thought "radiologists make enough as it is because they don't have to see the patient's personally".  I couldn't handle being caught in the middle, and the stress wasn't worth it.  I find transcribing much less stressful because I no longer hear screaming patients or have to beg for a payable ordering diagnosis.
ESL is not code for bigotry. It is used in my SM
community of SoFla. There are ESOL classes in school and English classes for ESL adults. These are listed as ESL! There are references to ESL all over and there is nothing bigotted about it. It is not a "code" for bigotry, at least in SoFla. I don't know about the rest of the US.

I have already stated, I don't mind ESL doctors. As someone else pointed out, they know they have an accent and tend to speak very clearly.

Stop code
Thanks for the help
Each system has a different code
Each call-in system has a different code. My VDI is 36 to speed up and 34 to slow down, and 39 is louder. They can go into the system under keypad commands and tell you. Hope that helps.
what code do you put in each field so sm
you have something to jump to? I haven't ever set these up before.
Hey, don't jump all over me....
I DID keep my kids at home while I worked.  However, to not help someone become "aware" of the potential stressors isn't realistic.  This original poster is a single mother, not exactly an easy situation to be under the best of circumstances.  I was married and not under pressure to produce an income to live off of.  I also did not work set hours, I had a situation that allowed me to work whenever I could.  Again, not always the way it is, especially when your choices are limited by being a newbie and having to take any job you might be offered.  Yes, lots of people do this BECAUSE they want to be home with kids, myself included, but to make it sound easy to care for small children AND learn a completely new field of work, WHILE being a single mother just isn't fair.  It's not that she's being discouraged, just enlightened, which is what she asked for.  Reality, not candy coating.
Just had to jump in on this one

After living with an alcoholic ex-husband for 20 years, I don't think this is labeling.  I think it is a reality.  He was a functional drunk.  In other words, he managed to fool the people around him at work that didn't know him well enough or didn't work with him closely.  Those that were close enough to him to see him on a daily basis could see that he only fooled himself into thinking that it didn't impair him.  He would use the same reasoning you just did and say that it affects every person differently and some have a higher tolerance.  My point to him is the same as yours:  if it starts affecting your everyday life then it IS impairing your judgment.  If you can't even wait a few hours until the workday is over to have your drink and feel you have to make excuses for why you're drinking on the job, then you're judgment is already impaired before you even take the drink.  I don't think it matters if you're a doctor, bus driver, MT, or zookeeper, you are being PAID for your skills and time while on the job.  Save your drinks for recreation.  If you can't, then either you have a problem with it or you don't respect those who will receive your finished product or those who employ you.  

Think about it....if you were on a job interview and the interviewer asked if you had a problem with drinking on the job, would you honestly tell that person, "no, I think it's okay to drink in moderation" and then expect to be hired? 

Don't jump!
When they jump on someone like below..
Jump on it sm
Forget the miles stuff, outsourcing is in, line money is down. You will make it up in that you will be getting used to the dictators, etc. and pick up speed. I would rather do one hospital than multiple other accounts. It will go fast after awhile, Keep a few small people in case this does not work out for some reason, at least you will have some small money coming in. I say go for it and accept the 12 cents or India will steal it from you at half the price. From the voice of experience, I would go with the hospital at .12 CPL, not a bad deal!
Jump for joy!
The BOS means nothing. What your account wants does.

C-phone access code ?? sm - HELP!
I bought a C-phone from E-bay.  When dialing a number, I get a message telling me I must use the "access code."  I am sure this is something that was put in there by the previous owner(s).  Can someone tell me how to "erase" this directive or clear the machine? 
Try #*11. That's the code I've used with every company. sm

That was # * 11, pound, star, 11 just in case you couldn't see it.

Good luck!

C-phone program code
Does anyone know if there is a code used that will allow you to save your already programmed keys whereas you do not have to re-program the keys every time you unplug your Dictaphone
You probably need your company's permission/log-in code, etc. to do this. nm
Time Code Stamps
Hello All,

For any of you who have had to time code transcripts:

Would it be helpful to have an MS Word application that prints an automated time code stamp? I ask because a programmer friend of mine and I have discussed writing a program to do this, and I'm wondering how useful it would be to you all.

This is how we envision it working: First, you complete the transcript. Then you open the Time Code Stamper in Word, and start going through the audio again. Suppose you want to put a stamp every 15 seconds. When you press a certain keystroke combination (ctrl-shift-f1, for instance), the program inserts a time code stamp in the format you specify. Then you fast-forward the audio to the next 30-second increment. When you find the correct place in the transcript for the next time stamp, you put you cursor on the spot and execute the Time Code Stamper program again. It will automatically increment the time by 30 seconds (or whatever increment you specify) and print the stamp. If you make a mistake, you can click on the menu and manually set the correct time.

I tested this out once with a very simple version of the program, placing time codes in a transcript every 15 seconds, and I was able to complete the whole document in about a quarter of the audio time (e.g., 5 minutes to complete 20 minutes of audio). The few errors I made I was able to fix very quickly and move on.

Like I said, we haven’t actually built a full version of this program yet, I just wanted to get some feedback from the people who could actually be using it. We’re thinking of selling it for $29 or so. What do you think?

If this particular program would not be helpful for you, do you all have any requests for Word formatting programs that would help you? We’re trying to think of different widgets that would be of use to transcriptionists.

C-Phone Security Code??

I purchased a C-phone from someone and now I cannot program any keys because it is asking for "security number"  before allowing you to program any keys. Anyone have any idea if there is a universal unlock code?

stop code question

Does anyone know how to create stop codes in Microsoft word documents. I need to type a letter template and where the blanks are I would like some type of stop code.

Does anyone have any idea on how to accomplish this. Thanks
