    Hello Everybody,

    I have a MS Word XP document that has a frame around it. I'm trying
    to put a light gray bar with black type across the page from the left
    side of the frame to the right side. The problem I'm having is that
    the light grey bar only goes as far as the width of the text which
    doesn't go completely across the page. I've tried adding spaces or
    tabs, but I cant get the barr all the way across and still keep the
    text centered. I know it can be done with Word Art, but I'd like to
    do it with standard text in the document.

    Please Help!

    You might try to insert a table (one cell high x one cell wide). This will
    put in a cell/table that will stretch the length of the page. Right click
    on the cell, choose Borders & Shading, click the Shading tab, and select the
    color you want.
