    Default Word new TREC inspection report available

    I have created the new TREC inspection report in a Word file. I will be happy to send it to any who want it. Just email me.

    I have a question for an improvement. Does anybody know how to create drop down selection boxes for areas of the file? In other words, I want to put standard/frequent comments in a drop down selection list for each category. I am fairly competent with Word, but I don't know where to start looking in the menus for this function. As usual, Microsoft Help is not very helpful.

    Thanks,

    I use adobe pdf. I had my son-in-law convert my report (word) to pdf.
    This weekend we will update the report to the required changes.

    I attempted to make some changes last year.
    You have to unlock the document, find the tools, then add in.
    I screwed up, then, but I won't this time.

    Use autotext


    In word 2003:

    To save verbiage:
    Highlight or select the text you want to save
    click insert
    click autotext
    click new
    name the entry to something associated with the writeup that you can remember, at least 4 characters

    Then, when you type those 4 characters, the saved entry notification will pop up by the cursor and will be entered into the report if you hit Enter.


    These saved entries can get lost during a reinstall etc so be sure to back up a file named "Normal" which is here on my pc:

    c:/docsandsettings/owner/application data/microsoft/templates

    I would also advise saving the text in a word doc too.
