They would have been saved to your normal.dot. Did you answer yes to the message
Save what? The normal.dot?
If you checked the option to prompt you to save the normal template, you will be asked if you want to save changes that affect the normal.dot. This can be formatted AutoCorrect entries, AutoText entries, macros, toolbar changes, and a few other changes.

If you clear the check for the prompt option, changes will be saved anyway and you will not get the message.

Or are you being asked to resave the normal.dot to another name? If that's the case, you have a problem.

The answer is yes but always save
your files before you do any upgrade just to be on the safe side. You can open 2003 documents in 2007 and they open just like they always have. Word 2007 opens them in compatability form but that is not something you see its built in to the program. However, unless you save your documents as "Word 97-2003 Document" (already built in to the options of 2007 when you click save as or you can set it up to always do that) anyone else without 2007 will not be able to open them unless they have the compatability patch. Same with Excel documents.

I have both intances of 2003 and 2007 running on my computer and can swtich back and forth without any problems.

Feel free to email me directly with any other questions.
A more appropriate answer would be to save the template to disk. sm
Save the .dot file that contains the macros you want to preserve to an alternative location like disk, flash drive, another hard drive, etc. Save all templates that contain macros you want to protect.
word normal.dot too big
I read this, if your normal.dot gets too big word is slow to open. they say you can just delete it, do a search and delete.
I believe you would need to make changes to the normal.dot file in Word.

There are two ways to do it.  You can open up your existing normal.dot file and change your view to 200% and then save it.  Or you can create a whole new normal.dot file with the settings you want, but if you do it this way, you have to find and delete the original normal.dot file.

Either way, every new document should be magnified to 200% and in whatever font you set the default as.

You should have no problem..just save your document in Word. A lot of our MTs use WP 10 (sm)
and as long as they save it as a Word document it pulls up fine in Word for the client.
How To Save Word Autocorrect Entries
Would someone kindly tell me how to save your Word 2003 autocorrect entries?  I need to do a complete reinstall of Word?  Thank you very much !
You moved my message but not the answer, still needing help!
Not only have I missplaced my icons, since my message moved, have lost the answer to how to retrieve the icons. Still need help! Thanks
If it's in Word, just right click it and save it. If another format, copy
I just pull up in word and save as Rich Text File...nm
Been discussed in the past that Word's line counter is lower than normal. Anyone else? nm
Thanks XXX. I found a "Microsoft Works Word Processor". You say I save those as files?

I do have a CD drive so if I can buy WORD like you mention, I can load it.

Do you think it would be beneficial in the long run to invest in WORD (maybe buy it at BEST BUY or something) and load it on my computer?  I am going to be doing lots of work, so better to use as good a program as I can as far as being able to SAVE stuff - There will be lots of opportunities for macros (or saving paragraphs, etc).  Whatever the term is these days to mean:  saving lots of words, LOL.



Just open glo file in Word, highlight all, then change case and save back
to glo file. Use the Alt key trick to highlight just the column of words, then Shift + F3 to toggle through the change case commands. First save your glossary under a different name so you also keep the original.
You can replace the 2007 Normal.dotm with your old normal.dot file. sm
Open the old normal.dot in Word and save as the new file format.

The easy way is to load the oldest version first and then upgrade.

I'm completely normal and met my normal husband online. sm
I also met casual dates online (read: real social dates, NOT sex hookups), and all were completely normal. I wasn't meeting who I wanted to meet in the other traditional ways (church, through friends, at work, etc) so I looked online and found someone whose sense of humor shined through in his writing, and that is who I eventually married after 2+ years of traditional dating. We are both college grads, gainfully employed, financially stable, non-perverted, normal people. BUT, I did have to sort through a LOT of personal ads, as there are certainly plenty of oddballs out there, as well, just like in the outside world. :-)
This happens to me in Word sometimes (see message)

I think it happens when I accidentally hit a combination of keys.  I can't remember exactly how I fix it, but it's something like hitting either ctr/shift, or alt/shift, or ctr/alt/shift--some form or the other.  Hope this helps.

Rename your normal.dot file to something else then restart Word. It will create a new file.
No, re-read the message. I said less than $0.01 per WORD.

She needs to compare the amount she is paid ($5.75/1000 words is less than $0.01 per word) by computing a line (in this case the example given was 65-characters with spaces) times a line rate (example of $0.08/line). Comparing the two results will help her to decide if she is being paid enough.

Last word should be support. Sorry - no message
: )
I have had this happen - when you close word you should get a message (sm)
to the effect of would you like to save the Normal template - click OK.  When you start again you will probable get a message asking if you want to open the new Normal - again click yes.  Hope this makes sense!
We use all numbers unless 1st word in sentence - No message
I did try to save the file first but it wouldn't even let me save it.
The Surgical Word Book by Claudia Tessier (see message)
is set up like that. It is black with silver and GREEN lettering.

Love, love, LOVE this book! Good luck!
I quit once for 3 years, but then started again. (Quit cold turkey when I did)

Can you save the document as a Word document? nm
I quit two months ago. I tried to quit for over a year, but I just had to be ready.
I tried the patch, NRT gum, Zyban, everything. One morning, I woke up and just quit cold turkey. There are some good online support groups out there that can help you when you're ready.
normal? Normal means you have a.....S/M

There is no *normal* in this life..........

There ARE conformists and nonconformists but normal doesn't exist. Sorry. 

You must have a preconceived idea of what *sanity* is, eh?  *lol*

And I have seen a new ad in the magazine Advance that has a sign on bonus for SE's, maybe just better pay, let's think positive!!
Do NOT quit MT yet! & dont quit looking.Try her
Venting-why do people keep putting nm and THEN writing a message?? nm means no message - sm
Please put sm if you have a message and NM if there is no message other than your subject line.  It makes it easier when reading these messages.  thanks so much and have a nice day everyone. 
A simple google search will give you your answer...I'd give you the answer,
but how would that help you learn to research on your own...and I'm in a rush to get to the next post. 
small message. nm means no message
Flame=200 views, sm=see message, nm=no message
Not normal
Actually, I love my company.  It's just that every year after the 4th it seems to slow down for a short time.  That's all.  I have been with many companies that this has happened at, small and large.  This is the best company and best pay that I've had. 
No I get normal...
That must be a different account they have many accounts I do a VA account
8-10 u/l is normal nm
Yes - CT and MRI, all normal. Dx as
It's normal, like my mom used to say. . . sm

"In order to remember something new, I have to forget something old."

Truth is, you may be able to remember the pair of ice skates you got for Christmas when you were six, but you don't remember to buy milk for 2 days in a row.

My mom always said that her "brain was full of useless information." 


Is this really normal?
I've been with my current national for a year now, and I'm burnt out.  I do acute care work, struggle with lots of ESLs, and work on several different accounts.  For the past 6 months or so, work has been very low on my primary, and I bounce around from account to account, and I only work part-time.  I hate that.  I wish I had a primary that kept me busy and only in rare instances would I have to work on my secondary or tertiary and so on.  Instead, I may work on 4 different accounts in one day just to get in 500 lines, and of course it takes me longer to do that on accounts other than my primary because those accounts have a lot more doctors.  Getting the same ones isn't a daily occurrence, and if you do, they're the difficult dictators.  Is this normal?  It's hard for me to shop around and look for a better national to work for because I don't have high-speed internet access, and some not only want high-speed access, but they also are very specific about what type you need to work for them.  I feel stuck, but I am grateful to have a job and that it's not flipping burgers or working in retail.  Been there, done that....in my youth.
it can be normal, but what is normal?
and it is definitely frustrating, being bounced around. It would slow anybody way down. As far as burn-out -- take more or longer breaks maybe. Exercise inbetween -- walks do wonders for state of mind...maybe try talking to your supe, to see if you could be put on a primary that would have enough work to keep you on IT. Sometimes changing your work hours improves the work flow too, ie, evening shift, weekends... hang in there, as my mom used to say, "the only thing constant is change".

anyone know how to add a normal
You are A-OK and quite normal, actually.
You know, it took me at least 2 years to realize there is nothing wrong with me, as I started to wonder what you are wondering now. I spent 2 years blaming myself, but realized it is just part of getting older. I think it is actually a good thing, because we are not losing focus at all, rather I believe we are probably concentrating more on quality. I know before even in midcareer I did not have much of a tolerance for even commas, I cared about the line count. Now, I actually care about the commas, and the patient care. Plus, I care about my family, my mental well being, as well as the bills. I used to put the bills first and the patient second, and I was single. So, now I accept who I am, what stage of life I am in. The line count seems to be coming back. For the last couple of years when I felt burnt out and blamed myself, I could not do anything to get that line count up, more I blamed myself, more the line count went down. Now, I accept that I have to treat this job differently, accept who I am, and although I won't probably ever get 3K lines a day, and I am happy even half of that, seems like life is easier.
You are quite welcome, and you are not losing your mind. I just hope you don't blame yourself and celebrate your life and your maturity! Good luck :)
Normal sm
Congratulations, you have reached the Twilight Zone. It is normal for those of us who do it, to not remember typing things up and say, "Wow, that's interesting." I think it's normal, anyone else have a humble opinion?
Is this normal pay?
Where in the heck can you make $11.50 in fast food?
Microsoft Word.. The oold Word used to do this and I'm new to 2003 Word..nm
save it for another day
Yes, I agree with you, but apparently some people are unable to NOT be rude, so I have decided to give it up for today..... it just takes to much energy to argue. Not to mention, they can't even grasp the fact that you and I are two DIFFERENT PEOPLE................. so, there ya go.

oh, and bye the bye, in the churches I grew up in Amen was a form of agreement.
Can you tell me how you save your
that it cannot be saved. I'm sure this is a no brainer and I'm making it worse by thinking too much about it - any help would be appreciated.
Will somebody save me?

Hi, deep trouble here.  Reorganized under my desk (bad mistake, I guess, although the cords are nice and lined up now) and when I plugged the C-phone back in it went crazy and now I get dial tone from handset, but that is all.  Can't find the manual after searching for hours.  Anyone know what might be wrong or if I need to reprogram this thing?  I went to their website, but it is down at the place where you sign in.  Of course!  Can't work, so need as much help as I can get.  Thanks in advance. 



Even if you save yourself a
template, you still listen to the entire report and change the words as necessary. You don't leave it if that's not how it's dictated. Setting up your own template saves time & Keystrokes because a lot of times you will have entire sentences or sections the same, but you still must ALWAYS listen to the entire report & make any and all changes.

In addition to OPs, I also make macros for PEs, ROSs, etc., for dictators who usually are repetitive.
That sounded all normal to me. And SM
remember that the day after Christmas there won't be much work anywhere.
