How To Insert Schedule Details directly into Word

Writing the Schedule Booklet is a major task for the Show Secretary. Often, the Schedule Booklet is collated in Microsoft Word and contains Section, Subsection and Class details interleaved within advertisements, pictures and other general information. Hence, when schedule details change from one year to the next they have to be altered in both AgShow and the Schedule Booklet.

The AgShow Template file AgShow.dot extends the capabilities of Microsoft Word to import Section, Subsection and Class details directly from AgShow into the current word document via the AgShowTBar toolbar. So you can easily insert a Section or Subsection's details into your Schedule document inbetween the advertisements, pictures and other information. This makes the collation of the Schedule Booklet based on the schedule details specified in AgShow easy, accurate and fast.

This feature is incorporated into Microsoft Word by loading the template file AgShow.dot from within Word.
Note that AgShow MUST also be running for this feature to work.
