bullet Letterhead system.  This is a system for self-updating letter forms. Letterhead System - click to download The idea is to have letterhead components stored in one location and have letter forms reference that location when used so that form letters will have the latest letterhead information. If you are generating your letterhead on the computer or if your letter forms need to accommodate pre-printed letterhead, you should look at this! - Last updated 10-Jul-2001 - Version 2001.05 - zip file 496 KB - See also the Letterhead Textboxes and Styles Tutorial (below)  Download Letterhead System Now

Unobtrusive - powerful!

Gender Toolbar - click to download

Example:

Ms. X is  female, a woman. She is married, making her a wife. Her bicycle was a present from her parents. That is why people say the bicycle is hers.

Mr. X is male, a man. He is married, making him a husband. His bicycle was a present from his parents. That is why people say the bicycle is his.

The gender-specific words can be set/changed at the click of a button. 
The fields can be inserted from the toolbar. Once fields have been inserted from the toolbar, the document with fields can be used by someone else who does not have the add-in by manually changing the document property. Otherwise, they retain their gender just as if they were ordinary text.

PlaceBar Customizer - Reset the "Places" in the File dialogs of Office 2000 - Woody Leonhard - a part of WOPR and no longer available for free download.Cry! However, take a look at:

bullet

Favorite Places Bar Wizard by Romke SoldaatClick to go to article and Wizard download at OfficeVBA site. does the same thing as the PlaceBar Customizer and is free! A different link - with an explanatory article is also free: Favorite Places Bar Wizard at OfficeVBA However, there is a catch! This is on the OfficeVBA site which is member-only.  Don't despair! You can sign up for a free issue of the magazine and get 30 days of free access to the site. This site is so good I ended up paying for a subscription to the magazine just for these download privileges. 
You don't really need to read the articles, just download the utilities. The articles, though are good if you are trying to learn VBA because they explain in great detail what is being done and why.

bullet

Better Proofing - Thesaurus and Speller Improvements by Romke Soldaat (Word 2000/2002 only)
Also on the OfficeVBA site (see above) is an Add-In that improves the drop-down thesaurus and spelling menus by giving you access to more replacement choices, retaining capitalization in replacements, and allowing addition of words to multiple custom dictionaries. Although you will want to read both articles (Thesaurus and Speller) you only need to download the Add-In from the Speller article.
