Ask in the Word ng:

news://news.microsoft.com/microsoft....rd.vba.general

The solution can be translated to VB.NET...

How can I change the font of text I am inserting into Word. I only want
the inserted text to use the new font and all other existing text to
keep it's original font.

Thanks,
Richard

Hi Armin,

I'm getting more curious.

Now you're saying:

I really don't understand who gains from this post.
Richard. BTW, I really don't understand who gains from _your_ post.

Are you supposing that this person is stupid and needs to be told
twice?
Herfried's hint was about 2 hours earlier than Richard's second post, so
Richard probably overlooked Herfried's reply, that's why I referred to
Herfried's hint to turn to the other group.
Do you get some kick out of seeing your name in posts?
Are you trying to get your hit count up in Google Groups?

*LOL* I'd say _you_ are the one creating the most OT threads lately, so,
please, don't try to tell me what to do, ok? And, to answer the questions:
no.

I have written a post to Cor but it applies to you.
You will disagree and I am interested in what your views will
be.

I think Richard didn't really understand _why_ I told him to ask in the
Word ng. In the Word ng, he will more likely get an answer. The
question is mostly related to Word VBA, not VB.NET.
Are you supposing that this person is stupid and needs to
be told twice?
Ha... In the German ngs people who do not post with a realname don't
get an answer. I and some others tell them that they should post with a
realname. Some of them change their name into a realname quickly,
others still post with the "nickname". Nevertheless, there were some
folks who needed some time to understand why it's better to post with a
realname.

What's the point of the paragraph above? Telling somebody that he
should post to an other ng should not be interpreted as a command, it
should be considered a hint.
Do you get some kick out of seeing your name in posts?
LOL

Hi Armin,

I actual discovered these while investigating a query and curiousity led
me to wonder how many postings Herfried had made. I have only just compiled
this table in response to Herfried's question. "Is there any hit count?"

Yes, the table is sorted, but it's not a league table unless you would
like it to be.

I'm not on the table as I've only been newsgrouping for three weeks! I
haven't done a last-three-weeks table. I leave that as an exercise for
league-tablers.

Even if I were on a table, I have a higher percentage of amusement
postings which would skew the results as much as it skews download times. ;-)

Fergus

That is a historic deep difference between the habits from people from the 3
old empiries countries in Europe and the other Europe countries.

It was very efficient to keep track of the people.
But why would we use those old empire despotic standards?
A lot of Dutch are killed by that kind of administrations in the last war.
Since then it's very deep in the Dutch moral to keep that in mind.
I am from after the war, but freedom in every way is the main part of Dutch
thinking and in that I am real Dutch.

The sentence about war is only too illustrate, that is behind us in Europe
happenly, but the lessons that we did learn not.

Normally you put with these messages the sentence.

Please do you want to send a picture from you in a zip file so I can

Sorry for this Sthephany, normally I don't like to threat woman in an other
way than man,

and don't blame Fergus, he is so done to help people in the way he thinks is
right.

(And we have almost the same thoughts) that he seems to be a little bit
furious.

And to be seriously:

Fergus I think we all want to help, Armin, Herfried, you, the others and me.

Please keep in mind that people, for whom English is not their native
language, sometimes use the wrong word because they think it looks like
English. I did it with argumenting (while I know what arguments mean in
English but forgot it), you did it with geblauten.

Have fun all.

Nov 20 '05 #25
Cor
Herfried, Armin and Fergus,
When I see this thread, I can only make one conclusion for myself.
We all want to do it right and we do it wrong.

My sugestions are:
Cor, Herfried, Armin and all Others,
(And that is all Fergus wants I think).
Is it possible to wait with OT's that are discussable if it is an OT 12
hours (to overcome the timezones).
OT's are for me by instance the sure VB6, C#, JScript, Office, HTML, old
ASP, ADO 2.<7 question, but when you have doubts please wait.
(When I am wrong in that please give comments)

Fergus, Cor and all Others,
Can we have the dicipline when it is real an OT question, not to answer it
directly or only if it can be done with one sentence?

By the way the answer from Herfried on this question was in my opinion not
an OT the only word that was missing was
Ask in the Word ng: FirstThe solution can be translated to VB.NET...


And not to make this too long the rest is written in my other answer to
Fergus in the thread On being an assister II

???

Maybe it's simply a question of politeness whether to tell somebody his
realname of not. If, in the "real world", somebody meets you and says "hi,
I'm xqy", you would say: huh?? So why make a difference here? There is
simply no reason to hide the name - unless the one has been up to something.
This is a "technical" group, not one talking about suicide (just an extreme
example) or other topics that justify a nick name. Apart from that, a nick
name is often childisch because grown-ups usually know that they can be
behind there statements.

This has been discussed over and over again (most people finally understood
why use the realname), so I won't make any further comments on this. ;-) -
and, this does not mean I wanna tell anybody in the group what to do, it's
only the explanation of the "realname-habbit" in the most German groups.

The OP wants a _quick_ response. Why waiting for 12 hours? If the OP
reads the hint telling him to turn to an other ng, he can find a
solution in shorter time.

I think it is not right to put your own standards to someone else.
When it is a habbit in the German newsgroup, for me that is no problem, it
is a closed group of countries which use that language.
(I do not know how it is with the Belgian, Swiss, Italian and Danish German
language part about this subject).
But i failed in my explanation.

Hi Armin,

|| There is simply no reason to hide the name

Isn't there? Does a nickname only <hide> or can it <reveal> too?

|| - unless the one has been up to something.

That's perhaps a bit of a limited view?

|| a nick name is often childisch

In Britain, and many other places, I'm sure, 'childish' and 'fun' can be
applied to the many behaviours. I'm very grown-up at times and I'm very
'childish' at times. I have a lot of fun. For many people, having a nickname
is an amusement - not a cover. There are some people for whom their nickname
is more 'real' that their actual name.

I had a query-conversation with a chap calling himself NewbyDewby. He
chose Newby because it represented his newness to VB.NET. He added Dewby
because it rhymed. Rhyming adds amusement value. It was also his way of
saying - Don't be hard on me, I'm a nice guy and I'm new to this game.

NewbyDewby is a perfectly valid name to come into the group with. And I
understood his intention with it. Eventually I asked him his real name but
this was because our conversation was extended and I do prefer a real name in
a longer exchange and because I find NewbyDewby awkward to type.

Some people use nicknames because they are lazy. I don't condone that -
I'd rather have a real name. The person calling himself "e" maybe in that
category. But he may have a valid reason for it. It may, for example, be a
childhood nickname. I don't presume to judge.

|| a nick name is often childisch because grown-ups
|| usually know that they can be behind there statements.

I'm not sure what this means but if I've got it right, a person with a
nickname can also stand behind their statements. I think that it's the
willingness to stand rather than the name used.

|| somebody meets you and says "hi, I'm xqy", you would say: huh??

Lol. Actually I'd say "Hi Ecksquwee - that's an unusual name" and start a
conversation about it. ;-)

Fergus

Yes, to give time to others to give an answer, this are topics "very much in
between",
I normaly think they get a reference (like Herfried did make and seen in our

When you now see the Jeremy Cowles answers you expode I think, wait a while

Jeremy uses "please" in his replies too. Really rude, even for (i

You can say 'will probably' or 'may', but 'may probably' is like saying
'possibly probably' - so I've taken out the 'probably'.
