Removing imbed code on BK Reports

Kenneth Baldwin
 

G’day to All Brothers Keeper’s user,

 

I’m wondering if anybody knows of a quick way of removing the [highlighted commands] in my Wood 2010 genealogical reports.

 

I convert my .RTF files to Word 2000 files and these files are normally on the large size and I end up spending a lot of my time going through my report and removing the [highlighted commands] manually.

Hello Kenneth,
I run an earlier version of MS Office Word and for that I don’t need to delete those embedded codes.  I understand that they are placed there by BK so as to create an index of the entries involved.  Presumably you asked BK to prepare an index of records when you sent it to Word.  In my Word program it disregards the imbedded stuff and prints just the main information – what you haven’t highlighted.  I might be wrong with your version of Word but have a go with leaving all the imbedded stuff in there and see if Word prints the RTF and index.  Would save you a lot of effort.

                These are INDEX entries for the index at the end of the document

They are also HIDDEN commands  and formatting marks and should not print in printed paper documents.  Or even in PDF.

This might help if your settings are arranged  to do such.

 

However, there are other  settings in MS-Word 2010

Under [Menu item <File><Options>]  are a range of settings.  See here:-

This will change the action of the Image non-printable above.

In my version of Word (and others) hold down the Alt key then press F9.  This should show or hide the field codes; the “ xe” code you are displaying is to create an index.

Since you use MS Word you can create a macro to turn off hidden text.

I created a macro that takes the RTF file and creates the Index from those entries, puts page numbers and creation date on the report and turns off the hidden text.

In Word select Marcos (you may have to right click on ribbon and select customize to display it)

  1. Click on Record
    1. Name the macro and if you want assign it to a key stroke
    2. On the file menu downs at the bottom is Options
    3. Select Options, then display
    4. About the middle of the screen you should see “Hidden Text” uncheck it.
    5. Go back to Marco button and select stop recording

 

You should have a macro with code similar to this

 

Sub Macro1()

'

' Macro1 Macro

' Hide hidden text

'

    ActiveWindow.View.ShowHiddenText = False

End Sub
