Word 2003 - "expanding" RRS feed

  • Question

  •  

    Hi Everyone

    I'm using Word 2003 and would like to create a simple Newsletter.

     

    I was wondering if Word 2003 has an option to expand or contract what I call a "section".

     

    For example, the newsletter will have articles - the title and summary of the article is displayed and if you click on the title to  "read more" it would "drop down" with the fulltext of the article.

     

    Let me know if you have any ideas.

    Thanks.

    Jimmy

  • While I do not consider that Word, of any version is the right thing to use for that, you could use macrobutton fields to run macros that toggle the hidden attribute of the font used in the Sections.

    See
    which also considers some other options... Maybe download
    to see a small sample doc which demonstrates the approach Doug mentioned.
