    Adding a picture alongside text in MS Word

    I have problems with getting text and pictures right in MS Word 2007. I'll add a simple image to show what I'm talking about. What I got is text aligned to one side of the document. But whenever I add a picture and put it on the other side, the text extends toward the picture. How to make it so the text stays in place after adding the picture?

    First picture: The document how it looks with text only (grey is text)
    Second picture: The document how it looks with picture alongside text (picture in black)
    Third picture: How I need it to look.

    Hi there

    A little trick here --- set your Word document up so it's in a TABLE with TWO columns. You can set the grid lines to INVISIBLE.

    Now say in Row 3 you simply insert the picture in Column two.

    Easy --job done.

    (There might be easier / better methods --I'm not an "Office Guru" - but this method works).
