MS Word VBA >> page codes

Hi!

I have come across a number of situations where I would
like to 'reveal the page codes' so as to troubleshoot
certain text problems but I can't find the 'reveal codes'
button. In Word Perfect it is a simple right click menu
item that allows the writer to see his text plus all the
inserted codes in the page. That way, if some line of text
isn't properly spaced, or some word is strangely out of
position a simple glance at the 'revealed codes' will show
imediately what is wrong and allows for correction. For
some reason a writer in Microsoft Word seems unable to do
this. How can I 'reveal coes' in Microsoft Word? It is
very frustrating to not be able to fix simple problems
because this feature is not obvious or not available.
Thoughts?

Thanks!
TL

MS Word VBA >> page codes Hi TL,

See the article "Is There Life After "Reveal Codes"?" at:

http://www.mvps.org/word/FAQs/General/RevealCodes.htm

The answer is "Yes" (Word was born before Reveal Codes.)

Please post any further questions or followup to the newsgroups for the
benefit of others who may be interested. Unsolicited questions forwarded
directly to me will only be answered on a paid consulting basis.

Hope this helps
