Preset Forms??

by junejune0605 / February 27, 2007 4:01 AM PST

Ok, I dont know exactly what it's called or how to set it up, but I did a resume with a template and it had fields where it would ask for your address and automatically format it for you. Since I do contracts all day long it would be great to have these fields there instead of searching through the document to amend them.

thank you so much!!!

Just what program are you talking or thinking about? Word has forms, Excel has forms, Access has forms, Outlook has forms and most server-side web-applications have forms.

Maybe talk with your application programmer? Or hire one? Or maybe start with an analyst for a more thorough study of your needs?

I am wondering if they are talking about one of the Wizards that uses dialog boxes via VB.

I am talking about MS Word. If you go to open a template, and say, open a resume, you will see for example, the address field kinda pre filled out and set there, so when you type 111 main st somewhere xx 22222 it'll automatically set it there and so forth... ???? maybe that will help?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
