Doh!

Mi malo - I thought you could attach word docs to Blogger. It doesn't look like you can; however, there is a "free add-in called Blogger for Word that lets you save a word document as a post to your Blogger blog w/out opening a new browser." The downside is you have to download and install the Blogger for Word add-in.

If you, and anyone else, is absolutely opposed to doing this then we can just e-mail the attachments to each other? You may still have to e-mail Amiee her document so she can make corrections.

The following link goes into more detail about Blogger for Word and has the link to download the add-in.

Is each of the scanned pages a seperate file? If so, that would be alot of saving of files.

I am not opposed to Blogger for Word, but emailing me the electronic copy is just as fine and well.

Each scanned page is a separate file; however, Ahren had the bright idea of cutting and pasting the article together into one file for your proof reading pleasure. How's Philly?

Duuude, bogus. I tried to send the thingie via MS Word-Blogger-Form-Like-Voltron Combo-style and I got the error message: "The server could not respond to this request or login information is not valid. (#500)". I know my login business is good to go, so I'm not sure what the problemo could be.

Anywho. I've got the file (and it is just one Word file containing the entire article) so, uh... it's cool. I'll get it to you somehow.

I leave tomorrow for Philly. Hopefully, it will be relaxing, enjoyable and fun. Oh wait, I am going for work/training so nix all that.

My email is horowitzaimee@hotmail.com. Can you send me the file?

Sorry about all the trouble!!! And thanks for all your effort!!!

Ahren - major points for the Voltron reference. I gave Rory his article and e-mailed the entire article for him to proof.

If you don't mind an outside opinion... Blogger for Word writes the horrible HTML code that all Microsoft products are known for. If generating valid and clean code is a concern (which I believe it should be) don't use Blogger for Word.
