I have a word document that I want to "lock" all the tables so when I type it doesn't start moving them about like it does at the moment, how can this be done?

Cheers

Do you mean the text inside the table or outside of it?

That's a good question, and I don't think it's possible to lock tables (I've never really thought about it)?

You could do what we used to have at uni and make 'forms', where the user can only type in a section that is clicked on. I remember seeing some tutorials about on google, but it might not be what you're looking for.

You "lock" a table by giving it a set position on a page or in a paragraph.

Right click somewhere in the table and select table properties, then text wrap = around (sorry, translated from a dutch word 2003 version), then "position". Here you can give details where you want to lock the table, and do not forget to deselect the option "move with tekst".

Hope you'll get the point, as I said it is a translation from dutch.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
