Earn up to 10 extra points for answering this tough question.
In Microsoft Work 2007, I would like to know how to add text over a line without the line moving as you type text on it.

Thanks for your help

Use the option strike through which will add a line over the text as shown below

You also have another option:
1. Draw a line.
2. Insert a textbox from Insert --> Text Box
3.  Add text to the textbox, remove the border of the textbox.
4. Drag the text over the line based on your requirement.

Hope this helps!

There are two possible ways to do this:

1. Use a 1x1 table and remove the borders except the bottom border. This will allow people to type in the empty table without shifting text around. The limitation is that the 1x1 table must be on its own line.

2. The preferred option is to use the Developer ribbon (enable Word Options - Popular - Enable Developer...). Then under the controls, insert a text box. You can then edit the font of the text box to add and underline. You can find more information about this method on Microsoft's web site here.

selecting the typed word and pressing ctrl+u.  After pressing this command whatever is typed has underline automatically.

If you dont want to move the line when you type another option is to select the text which you want to underline and press Ctrl+u.
