I don't think it's a Win10 issue but with the program being used to create the document.

Thanks Big Horn I wondered if that was the problem i.e. that the computer system was not inclusive of the capability of sorting and logging data for a doc. Thanks for confirming this. I think the features are not inclusive of really necessary abilities for standard stuff and have too many unused ones for general use. I have had a few systems Windows 97 and moving forward from there on and I am finding 10 to be the most annoying. rabbit face.

I've also used older versions of Windows and with older versions of Office, first was Win3,1 on DOS 5 and all following versions but never owned a ME/Millenium Edition nor a Vista, never knew of a version 97.
I prefer WordPerfect for a couple of easier-to-use features but have had Office 4.3, 97, 2000, 2007, 2010 and 2013, still have the last 4 editions on some computers. The only real problem with Office 97 was with Outlook, corrected with Outlook 98.

Most versions of Office have reached EOL/End of Life and are no longer supported, maybe even as late as and including 2016. If not wishing to spend money there's nothing wrong with using the free LibreOffice or OpenOffice, just don't have an E-Mail Client similar to Outlook. I like LibreOffice as it still supports the old Microsoft Works formats that some of my clients used for creating recipes, easily transferable.
