Hi David,

>I'm sorry that my question seemed to annoy Jane. I'm aware of the Word-PC
list, but I really didn't have time to subscribe to a separate list just to
ask this question. I do believe that a tools-type question is still on-topic
for this list.<

Ouch! I'm sorry if my response took you that way. I may have been rather

I tend to feel that a tool-specific question will be better answered on a
tool-specific list: but obviously there can be other factors that make it
more effective to ask the question on a general list where you can expect to
find Word gurus.

I subscribed to the WORD-PC list a while ago - even though I rarely use it
to ask questions and am rarely able to answer questions as well as the Word
gurus who inhabit that list - because when I *do* have a problem with Word,
and urgently need an expert answer, that list is the best resource I know
of. I am effectively the Word guru for my group here, simply because any
problem anyone else runs into while using Word is likely to be a problem
that I have already tripped over myself and had to find a solution to. But
there will always be problems that I have never encountered before and
cannot figure out how to solve in time: I may not be able to predict when
they will occur or what they will be, but I know it's going to happen.
Subscribing to WORD-PC is my form of insurance. YMMV.
