Set up custom fraction auto corrections in Word 2004
Authored by: Norm Nager on Nov 09, '06 11:34:18AM

I've long wanted to set up fractions that way in Word. Thanks!

But, when I go to Insert/Object, I cannot find equation; the only entries under Object type are:
Microsoft Excel Chart
Microsoft Excel Worksheet
Microsoft Graph Chart
Microsoft Word Document
Microsoft Word Picture

I went into Word Help, but could find no answers on how to use the Equation Editor in Word.

My version of Office 2004's Word is 11.3.

Help, please?

Respectfully, Norm

I think Equation Editor is an optional install - that would explain why it doesn't show up for you.

You might be able to reinsert the installer CD and run a custom install to select just that. However, I think it would be safer to uninstall Office entirely ("Remove Office" is a Microsoft supplied utility which you should find in the "additional Tools" folder) and then reinstall (selecting Equation Editor this time) and repatch back up to 10.3.
