if you want to send a single fax, and have the fax number (that is on the document) passed to WinFax. You need to create a style called “wfxFaxNum”. That style is applied to the area where the fax number is located on the page.

Using the WinFax (Wfx) styles

A style is a named collection of attributes that can be applied to the text in a Word document. The WinFax macro will use the styles to search the document for data to be sent to WinFax, such as the recipient’s name and fax number. Use the Styles and Formatting command on the Format menu to apply a WinFax style to the appropriate text in your document. The WfxFaxNum style is a required style as it should contain the fax number.

Here is a list of the styles that can be used within a Word document.

· WfxFaxNum – The recipient’s fax number.
· WfxRecipient – The name of the recipient. (Optional)
· WfxTime – The time that the fax will be sent. (HH:MM:SS) (Optional)
· WfxDate -The date that the fax will be sent. (MM/DD/YYYY or MM/DD/YY) (Optional)
· WfxCompany – The recipient’s company name. (Optional)
· WfxSubject – User-definable information. (Optional)
· WfxKeyword – User-definable information. (Optional)
· WfxBillCode – User-definable information. (Optional)

NOTE: Since Word styles apply to an entire line or cell, ensure that each piece of information is on a separate line. If desired, the text may be hidden. Use the Font menu option on the Format menu to make the text hidden.

Creating the Wfx Styles

If you use a template that is faxed regularly, you might want to add the styles to the template so they are always available.

For Word XP/2002/2003:

1. Click Styles and Formatting on the Formatting toolbar, or click the Format menu, and
then click Styles and Formatting.
2. In the Styles and Formatting task pane, click New Style.
3. In the Name box, type a name for the style. For example, WfxFaxNum.
4. In the Style type box, click Character.
5. Click OK and repeat for each of the wfx styles you wish to use.

For Word 2000:

1. Click the Format menu, and then click Styles.
2. In the Styles dialog box, click New.
3. In the Name box, type a name for the style. For example, WfxFaxNum.
4. In the Style type box, click Character.
5. Click OK and repeat for each of the wfx styles you wish to use.

The following is a list, with descriptions, of the available WinFax Wfx styles:
