Fax From Word

Discussion in 'Windows 7' started by Earl Partridge, Feb 23, 2010.

    Using Win7's Fax & Scan is a lot different than what I'm used to in XP.
    In Word when I print to Fax it appears that the word document is going to be
    an
    attachment. I found nothing to ask for info about cover page. Looks like
    the only
    info to be entered is the TO and Subject. I try to send with. I add a
    Fax number
    in my own address in address book for testing, and try to Send. The error
    says
    that "one or more recipients do not have a fax address...." How do I use
    Fax in Word?

    I think I figured it out... In the To field I can enter the phone number
    rather than
    selecting a name from the address book... and then attach a file I want to
    fax.
    But, what about sending to someone in my address book. It seems I should be
    able to select a name from my address book, and as long as it has a fax
    number,
    it should accept and send to that number. Doesn't work that way for me.

    I'm wondering if any of this has anything to do with Windows 7. :)

    Wouldn't it be just as easy to send it as an attachment to an email since
    your wanting to use their address?
    Just a thought,

    That's most likely doable in many cases, but I'm sure there would be some
    cases where a Fax is warranted, or perhaps demanded.

    I'm wondering if you read anything he asked before you decided to offer that
    as "help"

    Sure sounds to me like he is asking about using the fax program that comes
    in Win.7

    No, he seems to be talking about faxing from Word. He just happens to
    be using Win 7.

    If you read the entire thread and not just the first sentence, I think
    you'll see that that was the only reference to Win7's Fax & Scan.
    After that it was 100% Word.

    The fax program is not included in Word but in Windows.

    Which does not change the fact that the fax program is a part of Windows
    7, NOT Word.

    So he is asking about using the Win. 7 fax program, and he wants to use Word
    to create the fax, but you don't see how this has anything to do with
    Win.7?????
    Recent public school grad I guess? Surprised you can manage to get on line,
    or is it you just have no clue, but feel you must post something?
    That is a common theme in Unset. I don't know how many times I have asked a
    question, and get several responses like yours. Some lame post, showing they
    have no answer but just "had" to post something. Of course fortunately there
    is normally at least one person who actually knows the answer, who will post
    it.

    I need to send (or receive) a fax several times a year. Not all
    businesses and government agencies have the ability to send and
    receive documents via email.

    I use greenfax.com for sending faxes (@ $.07/page) and eFax for
    receiving them (free).

    Sorry, I get your logic now. You want to fax to numbers of people you store
    in your address book just for that purpose.
