I am having some extreme difficulty viewing the field codes in a Word document I have to modify. Actually, I need to change some of the format so that I can actually edit it.

I cannot seem to get the computer to display the codes and I cannot get the icon for this function to respond.

2 questions:

1. Is this the forum for such a problem?

2. If not, where should I go for excellent help such as I have received from this group so far?

Bleeping Computer's Business Application area...

this appears to be the proper area...

but since you have already posted here...

what version of office/word are you using?

by field codes do you mean non-printing characters?
like paragraph marks, tabs and spaces?

those you can reveal by:

tools menu, options, view, and basically check every
box in that window, click ok and look at your document
again... hopefully this is what you are looking for.

(these instructions are from Word 2000... they might
be different for your version... or not)
