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?

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

Is there an email for Google support? I cannot
Never mind. I sent an email to IT tech support. Thx. nm
Stedman's has free tech support
I had problems getting their spellcheck on my computer, too. The company I worked for had a tech dept. and couldn't figure out why it wasn't working properly and had me call Stedman's (got the number on their web page where I ordered the spellchecker.) Turns out I had to load it differently than the directions they included. No biggie. Call them and they will fix you up in no time for free on the spot.
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!

It's working fine for me. Email to support@mtstars.com with the exact problem
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
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?
Feel free to Email me - maybe we can help
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.
Please feel free to send me an email regarding...
your post. My response is far too long to post here, and could possibly be deleted if I provide names.

Feel free to email me about this. Lots of choices nm
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
Anyone familiar with Thawte for their free encryption email service?

I was looking at Thawte for a security measure for sending medical reports through email.  Has anyone here used them before or know anyhthing more concerning this company? 


Last word should be support. Sorry - no message
: )
Contact your tech support. The ExText functions are different than MS or Word commands. Are you usin
Will write more to you shortly - have a lot to say (sm)
Quickly I want to say this - first, many of the rules that you are living by are self-imposed. You are extremely intelligent and eccentric and you are creating a mental cage for yourself, trapping yourself in your own mind by saying that you can't do this and can't do that. I have trapped myself in situations for years before realizing that it was within my own power to set myself free. It is for you too. Saying that you can't work for other people is inaccurate. It may be true that you do not want to work for others or do not enjoy it but it is not true that you cannot do it. Many people don't want to work for others but you may have to do it at least in the short-term while you wait for your online businesses to take off.

Also, as far as getting psychiatric help you can go to the emergency room. When you feel that you should never have been born, that is a sign that you need to go and get help. You need an antidepressant. At the very least you need some fresh air and sunshine. I will write more later.
Awesome. There will be someone on shortly to tell you..
why to feel grateful for that.
Even horses are now gelded shortly...

after birth.  We used to have to wait until they were 2 years old, and some of them were quite "manly" and hard to handle by then.  Now the vet does it within the first couple weeks. 

It's amazing to me how things change.  I wonder why it took so long to figure out that early neutering is fine. 

I will be shortly - school bus driving - sm
$60 a day for about 3 hours of work, about the same I make for MT. I will be very PT at first as I am only a substitute once I finish my training (10 hours of driving with students is all I have left to do). But eventually I will have my own route, then I will probably cut back to about 300 lines a day, or about $600 a month. Don't want to over do it.
downloading free word program
has anyone ever used open office to download word so a test can be taken?  I rent a computer from my company and I know I probably should not do this.  My question is would they know if this is being done?  Thank you.  
No word expander that is worth its salt is FREE...sm
Wish that was so! There are several that have DEMO versions though, including FlashType offered through this website.
Email works fine with my Word docs are open...
it just doesn't work when ChartScript is open.
Are there any free medical spell checkers for Word that can be downloaded?..



If working in Word, autotext/correct can be used for free, but (smsg)
if you need a separate expander, then I recommend Shorthand.  I think their cost is reasonable, and it is user friendly.  I've used it for years, and it has worked in numerous different platforms, or if not directly compatible, I could convert my list either way fairly easily.  It, too, has a free demo period for 30 days.  Aside from Word's own autotext/correct function which is limited in its compatibility to a degree, you aren't going to find a good free one.
Please leave an email or email me at my address....click the email button. Thanks...nm
Do you have EMS standing by? lol
I so appreciate your standing up for me
I do not have to make this up at all. My husband then on dialysis at the same hospital where I worked and this physician on the staff there. My regular doctors there, husband's nephrologist there, I felt in a bind in my ability to do anything at all. I know mistakes made in plastic surgery as far as blotch jobs sometimes but I would think similar has happened before and after me. If I had worked somewhere else, I probably would have persued it further but I could not chance it, raising children and sending to college also. I was behind the 8 ball. I don't know why people come down so hard on another on these posts. If you don't believe, fine, no problem. I thought that $3,000 was not worth my losing my job, losing my insurance on my husband including burial which I had to use eventually, all income. Just didn't make that much sense to me and let it go. Thanks again for your post above!
Try standing
There are desks on the market that can be raised and lowered so you can stand at your station and type for awhile and then sit back down. This may help some people who find it difficult to sit for 8 hours. Just a thought. Some people work better standing and some sitting.
