One of the toolbars for a section of the report
does not appear on the screen. How do I get the
toolbar to show up again?
The toolbar has probably been re-positioned off of the
screen. To retrieve the toolbar, minimize Microsoft
Word, click with your right mouse button on the Windows
desktop and choose Properties from the pop-up menu. The
Display Properties window will now appear. Click
on the tab that says Settings and then find the slide
bar for the screen resolution (it can also say screen
size, desktop area, etc. depending on your version of
Windows). The slide bar will also have a setting
such as 800 by 600 pixels, for instance. Move this
slide bar to either increase or decrease the size of
your desktop and then click on the Apply button. When
the screen is re-sized and if you are asked if you want
to keep this setting, click on the Yes button. Next,
click on Microsoft Word on your taskbar to bring the
program back up and you should see your toolbar. Once
you have the toolbar positioned where you would like
to have it appear, minimize Word and you can restore
you original setting for the screen size on the Display
I’ve changed the names of some of the
sections on the Report Sections screen. How do
I change the names of buttons on the Report Sections

Customize, click on the Commands tab, and make sure the
changes are being saved to the ReportPlus template. Next,
click with your right mouse button on the button face
you want to change and edit the text in the Name field
which will appear.
What are the strange oversized “I”-s
all over my report? How do I get rid of them?
They are called “Bookmarks.” Word uses
them as place-holders for specific location-based commands
in our software. They show the software where to
place some of the Auto-text entries. Some also designate
reference points for page layouts and are important for
the Report to print out properly.

I received an error message that says "Err='1003'
You can specify only one line, footnote, endnote, comment,
or field at a time". What does this mean?
This messages mean that a bookmark has been deleted
from the report document. To re-insert it, you need to
find out which bookmark is missing. In the User’s
Guide for the program, in the Bookmarks section, is a
chart that lists all of the bookmarks. Choose the
Bookmark option from the Insert menu and a screen will
appear that will show you all of the bookmarks present
in the document. You can compare this list to the
chart in the User’s Guide to determine which bookmark

I’ve just installed Adobe Acrobat 6 and
I no longer see the Reports or Images menu when I’m
in a report document. How do I do view these menus?
What you need to do is un-install Acrobat and then re-install
using the "Complete/Custom" option rather than
the "Typical" installation. When you install
using this method, one of your options will be for Acrobat
not to modify Microsoft Word. The menus will then
appear again when you are in an inspection report document.
I receive a message that the macros are disabled
due to my security settings and I can’t run the

that pops out to the right. On the Macro Security
window, change your settings to Low and then click on
the OK button. You will then need to close and re-start
