Office Word 2007: Change Orientation on Page within Document


Instructions for changing page orientation (portrait vs. landscape) on a single page of a document (as opposed to the entire document), in Word 2007.


Assuming for purposes of explanation that the entire Word document should be portrait, except one page within it should be landscape orientation:

1. Place cursor on the page prior to the one which will be formatted as landscape.
2. Along the ribbon, select "Page Layout," then "Breaks," then "Next Page."
3. Select "Page Layout," then "Orientation," then "Landscape." This will set all following pages to Landscape.
4. From here, set the following page back to portrait.

SharePoint 3.0: Error: Your search cannot be completed...


Upon submitting a search query using an advanced search box, selecting more than one search scope checkbox from the advanced search web part, the corresponding search results page returns no results and instead returns the following errror:

"Your search cannot be completed because of a service error. Try your search again or contact your administrator for more information."

Further testing and attempts to isolate the issue resulted in finding out that one scope in particular seemed to be problematic. When this particular search scope was used in the search query, the results page would return an error. However, if this scope was not selected during the query, then the search results would display normally.


The problem scope, called "All Content," initially had the following scope rules:

* All Content, Include
* ContentSource = People, Exclude

The steps to resolve the issue are as follows:

1. Remove all existing scope rules
2. Create new scope rules to explicitly define each content source such as:
* ContentSource = Content Source 1, Include
* ContentSource = Content Source 2, Include
* ContentSource = Content Source 3, Include
* ContentSource = People, Exclude
3. Update scopes
