DATAFILE.DOT Record Numbering Macro May Fail with Large Cells PSS ID Number: Q105641 Article last modified on 11-30-1993

2.00 2.00a 2.00a-CD 2.00b 2.00c

WINDOWS

The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft Word for Windows, versions 2.0, 2.0a, 2.0a-CD, 2.0b, 2.0c - Microsoft Windows operating system versions 3.0 and 3.1

SYMPTOMS

The Number Records macro in the Word versions 2.x for Windows DATAFILE.DOT template may fail to completely number records in a data file if the contents of one row is larger vertically than your editing window.

When there is too much vertical space in a row, the Number Records macro will not scroll to the next cell properly. The insertion point will remain in the first large cell and continually renumber that cell. You must press ESC to abort the renumbering process.

WORKAROUND

Adjust the column width of any field containing a large amount of information so that no rows are larger vertically than the editing window.
