Once the graphic is put into Word, the source name, if it was inserted from
a source, is not available. Often, graphics are just pasted in the
document, so there is not a filename. You can view thumbnails in Windows
Explorer and compare the pics to your document. You can also copy the pics
in the document and paste them in a graphics program to save them as new
graphics. If you want a list of just the graphic names based on caption
names, if that would help, then generate a Table of Figures from your Word

> Here's the problem: I've inherited a Word document that

> of graphics, many more than are used in the doc. I'd like to
> know which of the graphics file are used in the document,
> without having to open them one by one and visually compare
> them to the doc graphics.
> Initially, I saved the document as an html file, and did
> indeed get a folder of graphics files -- but Word
> autonumbered them! This got me no closer to identifying the
> source files that have been imported into my Word file.
> IS there a way to generate a list of the file names of

> Thanks, one and all.
