    It doesn't usually appear by default in any of the menus, however if it was available it would be found in the format menu.

    Insert >> Field >> Date and Time. Right-Click the field and Toggle Field Codes to display as code.

    Format >> Boarders & Shading >> Shading Tab. Select colour and choose to Apply To: Text

    They would be what I would do. Although I have never heard of any of these questions before.

    Your life will be so much eaiser if you learn all the menus and what functions are performed in each one. If you can do that, office is a snap.

    Dear Mmaster,
    thanks for your help..
    some comments to questions :
    1-I haven't found "Format Painter" until now in the Format window.
    2- If you right click the field there is no any option to display as a code.. what is available is same options for any text .
    3- This way is not actually considered as highlighting.. this is Shading..
    here is the proof :
    if you use this way and put a shading on a specific text>> you cannot control this shading using the "Highlight" button on the Format toolbar.

    Dear Mitzs,
    thanks for your advice.. iam doing my best to learn all menus .

    i have question 4 now :
    4- Create an Elegant memo template.
    ( I know how to create an elegant memo but my question is : how can i make it "template" as what specified in the question..

    Thanks in advance
    :)

    Create your document with the features you like, then save as "Elegant Memo.dot"

    Templates in Word have the .dot extension, and when you change the extension, by default it should change the target folder to the Template folder. Good luck on the test! Warning! The timing is tight! You will have a little over a minute a question! Try to figure out what they want quickly! They also award partial credit if you get some of the objectives correct. :thumbleft

    Hi abook1,

    Format painter is not available in Word 2000, only XP and later

    Insert >> Field >> Date and Time You should get an option for the format you want, US or custom

    How can i highlight text by using menu commands not the toolbar ?

    Thats why the mouse was invented, to save time! Thats sarcastic but MMaster is spot on.

    have question 4 now :
    4- Create an Elegant memo template.
    ( I know how to create an elegant memo but my question is : how can i make it "template" as what specified in the question..

    Create your file then use the Save As command and save as template. When you want to access it, make sure you have saved it to a folder that you can remember and open it but remeber to then again save it as a word file when you have done what you want to have done.

    Regards
    Keimos

    Not sure where you got the impression that Format Painter is not present in Word 2000, as I am looking at it in my Standard Toolbar as I sit and type. It is the Paintbrush just to the right of the Paste button. It has been in every version of Word since at least Word 97, which I used to teach, along with Word 2000, and I think it was also present in Word 95.

    If you do not see it on your Standard toolbar in Word 2000, go to Tools->Customize, then choose the Commands tab, scroll down to Format on the left of the dialog box, use your mouse to grab the paintbrush button, and drag it up to the toolbar, drop it, and close the Customize Dialog box. :thumbleft
