Long division in Word 2007

As a middle school math teacher, I was so excited when I saw the
Equation button on the Insert ribbon of Word 2007 (instead of it being
buried in the objects menu like it was before). So I went to use it
to write a test and wanted to put a standard long division problem
(you know, it looks like a square root sign with out the check mark
part) into my document, which I know I could do before with equation
editor in Office 95-2003. However, no matter how hard I look, I can't
find anything that looks like it will show long division for me.
Can someone please help me find this? I can't imagine they tossed it
out.
Thanks in advance!

Re: Long division in Word 2007

Shannay, "they" didn't toss it out because "they" never had it
there in the first place. Now clearly you know you had one
available in Word 2003, so what in the world am I talking about?
I'm talking about the "they" being Microsoft. The "new" equation
editor in Word 2007 (aka, the "OMML equation editor") is what
you're using, and I couldn't find a long division template there
either. However, the "old" equation editor (aka "Microsoft
Equation", or simply "Equation Editor") is still available, and
still buried in the Insert > Object dialog box. In the Text group
on the Insert tab, click Object, the same Insert Object dialog
that you know and love will pop up, and Microsoft Equation 3.0
will be one of the choices. The same 2 long division templates
that you've been using in older versions are still there.

There's another option -- MathType. MathType 6 is newly-released,
and integrates very well with Office 2007, adding a MathType tab
to the Word and PowerPoint ribbons. (The OMML equation editor
isn't available in PowerPoint.) To try MathType free for 30 days,

Re: Long division in Word 2007

Thanks so much for your help. I didn't realize it was two different things,
but I'm glad it is still in there somewhere (although I still have to dig for
it). I think I tried MathType a while back and found it to be a nice product,
but since public schools don't have the budget for lots of extras, I get
along with what I've got!
Thanks again!

Re: Long division in Word 2007

Hi Bob

I hadn't realized that the old Equation Editor was still there in Word 2007.
Thanks for pointing that out.

Re: Long division in Word 2007

There doesn't seem to be a built-in command you can add to the QAT, but the
following macro added there will do the job

Sub InsertEquation3()
Selection.InlineShapes.AddOLEObject ClassType:="Equation.3"
End Sub
