Trying to modify a document in Word 2002, the replacement text has a line straight acrossed through it. Also, the file name has an ampersand in the title. I thought it wasn't possible to save a file with an ampersand in the title. Can someone help me correct this? I hope.

Ampersands in file names have been OK at least since Win7, I believe.  I know they work just fine in Win8 and Win10 but don't have the time to fire up my Win7 box to check.


You have almost certainly turned the Strike Through text formatting on.  I can't for the life of me remember what Word 2002 looks like now, but there is typically a button near the Bold/Italic/Underline buttons that shows text with a line through the middle.  You just need to turn strike through off.
