File Close To add a criterion to the list of criteria, define it in the "Define more criteria" section. For each criterion, you must define four parameters: · Whether the criterion should be combined with the existing criteria (And) or used inde- pendently of existing criteria (Or) · A property, such as file contents or file type · A condition, such as items that contain the words or a specific type of file · A value, such as a text string or number Once your criteria are defined, specify the folder to begin the search in and whether or not subfolders should be searched. Click Find Now to return the list of files. Use the Save Search button to save a set of criteria for performing searches in the future. This saves the criteria in the Windows registry in the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft \Office\8.0\Common\Open Find\MicrosoftWord\Saved Searches subkey. If you don't save a set of criteria, you must reconstruct it the next time you want to perform the search. Open saved searches with the Open Search button.

It was created by Woody Leonhard and is available on the Office Update Site (choose Help Office on the Web), or go directly to the site at: downloadCatalog/dldWord.htm. Figure 4-5 shows a modified Places bar. The Places bar is common across all of the Office 2000 applications. Any customization performed shows up in the Open and Save As dialog boxes in Access, Excel, Power Point, Outlook, and Word. File Close This command immediately closes the active document. If the document has been modi- fied since being opened or saved, a dialog asks whether or not to save changes to the document. Like most programs in Windows, Word offers a Close button on the far right side of its title bar, as shown in Figure 4-6. With its new Single Document Interface, Word opens a new window for each open document. If multiple documents are open, clicking the Chapter 4:File | 107
