I normally use Word 2003 for documents, although I use Outlook 2010. This morning I opened a Word 2010 document and after quite a while of some sort of an installation, I was able to open the Word 2010 document. I did not think too much of it, except that later I was sending an e-mail and attached a Word 2003 document and when I went to check it (i.e. open it up) it opened in Word 2010. How do I disable Word 2010 as my default program to open Word documents. I do not want to uninstall the program, but at this point I am not ready to learn how to use Word 2010.
since I installed SP1 for Office 2010 I have problems with opening some (not all!) older Word documents created with Word 2003 (*.doc). I get a message that Word can't read the document and it is probably corrupt.On a other client (same OS, Office 2010 without SP1) I can open the same document without difficulty.
I have a copy of my maths assignment (my most recent version...which is not backed up) that I have been unable to open. The error is: The file cannot be opened because there are problems with the contents. Details: The name in the end tag of the element must match the element type in the start tag. Location: Part:/word/document.xml, Line: 2, Column: 12620. How to correct this error? I am working with Word 2010.
Just started using a new workstation with Office 2010 installed by OEM. Everything worked fine for a few days, and then every time i attempt to open a Word file or Excel file i get the MS Office dialog box that states "please wait while windows configures Microsoft Office 2010". The dialog box stays visible for 30-45 seconds and then the program opens and works fine.
Ran a repair, four times, didn't fix it.
All of my research leads me to a solution of uninstalling and re-installing. I'm not buying that if everything worked fine for several days, that a bad install will make the program stop functioning properly.
I also noticed, while visiting help within outlook, that the product was still a trial version and not currently activated. I have entered the activation code numerous times with no luck.
For the last two years I have had no problems using Office 2003 in Windows 7. Now the Outlook program will not open any files created by Office 2007 or 2010. It did before, but now comes up with a error message as it tries to install an unknown program - "an error occurred when sending the command to the application" and then shuts down. A further message then shows indicating that WDVIEWER.cab is not available. So I downloaded and installed this but it is still not found.
I'm not sure what happened, but a month ago my Word started freezing and displaying a "Not Responding" pop-up pretty quickly after I opened it. This is the first time something like this has happened to me in the three years I have owned my laptop.
I've been trying to create a Task in Outlook from a Word Document that I have created on this computer. The idea is that a shortcut to the document is created as an Outlook Task. Click on the shortcut, and voila - there is the document.The "Create Microsoft Office Task" icon DOES send the document to Outlook as a Shortcut in a Task, however, when I open the task, Outlook says:"Outlook blocked access to the following potentially unsafe attachments: Shortcut to 'document name'."It's NOT an unsafe attachment; Outlook WILL OPEN this document if I send it as an email attachment. Outlook will open .docx files types.
For some reason, auto text does not work in one document that I have with a letterhead. Sometimes it does and other times not. The auto text options are all there but they do not work if I type the first three or four letters. They do work,however, if I open a blank document, but not in this particularly letterhead.I know when I first starting using the new computer, it asked me about saving the normal doc on this particular document and I don't remember if I did or did not.After that I believe is when it was no longer Only with this particular document with letterhead. I tried deleting the normal doc and copying from another computer, but still the same problem.
Using Win 7 Home premium and Word 2003. Record new macros, but they're not available if I close and re-open Word. Have renamed normal.dot to oldnormal.dot but don't see a new normal template. Have Acrobat 9.0 but found past problems only with Acrobat 7Everything worked fine using Word 2003 with Vista so wonder if Win 7 is the proble
I have WINDOWS 7 32 bit, with MS OFFICE STANDARD 2003. WORD docs. take at least 2 mins. to open - and to save. This applies to docs. saved on MY DOCS and new docs received as e-mail attachments. The strange thing is that this was not the case when first getting the new PC with WIndows 7 -- it has developed within the past month and is most inconvenient as I work with MS Word docs. daily. I changed my antivirus from AVG to Avast, but no improvement re. the MS Word docs.
In windows 7, in my email program, a Word 2003 doc will not open. I must save the file to a folder, and then open it. This is the only type of file for which this occurs. I have gone thru the Default Programs drill and tried all types of options, but with no success.
sporadic (4 out of 10) issues with saving files. Opens file from the network (AD) drive adds data which takes about 10 min. then saves the file. The save appears to be successful then user closes file and gets file permissions erroŁ Yes or No to save file to another location or change name. They save it to another location. The original file disappears from the network drive.
So. Running XP.2 (can't run XP.3; it kills Adobe's CS2 apps, which I need). Had a spare partition. Before putting Ubuntu back on it, I figured I'd install the Win7 Ultimate that'd come (unused) with another computer.
(The install was smooth enough. The updates were slower'n snail poo. But after turning almost everything back to the Windows Classic theme, it's almost bearable. Only two of my devices were unrecognized and unsupported, and they're no surprise; the tablet's nearly twenty years old (even the manufacturer doesn't support it) and the scanner's older still.)
Installed copies of my must-have software--Office 2003 (I've had to suffer through Office 2007, and will never ever ever put it on a machine I have to work on), Photoshop and InDesign CS2, Winamp .
I got my first real exposure to User Access Levels when, the first time I ran Word 2003, Win7 wouldn't let me save the new Normal.dot. I later went and copied my much-customized normal.dot from its XP location, so the file's at least there. But: I run Word on a portrait-oriented monitor. Under XP, Word remembers the window size and position, and it's exactly where I want it, all the time. So far, every time in Win7 I've opened up an existing document, the Word window has instantly shrunk to around 40% of the size it's supposed to be.
I'm curious if this is a cling-on permissions issue with normal.dot under Win7, or a registry setting that simply hasn't gotten made (in XP, Word seemed to take care of remembering where I put and closed it by itself). Did a search, but didn't see any questions that seemed to relate to this, so I'll ask.
(I'm trying to like Windows 7, I really am. I don't much, but I'm trying. I don't mind the thought of getting a new tablet, and I've got another scanner I can use. But I really dislike having to resize my windows every time I open a document--I spend 75% of my time on the PC in Word, just writing.)
And again, I hate, loathe and despise Office 2007 and 2010. I do most emphatically not like the "death by honey and marshmallows" interface that microsoft seems to think is so great.
I'm currently running Windows 7 Home Premium and whenever I try to click on a setup exe file, it would open in ms word. I've searched this forum and tried the MS Fix it patch but it didn't work. I can't even upgrade registry optimizer since it opens in word.
I've loaded Windows 7 and Office 2003 on my desktop. However whenever I try to Route Recipient from Word it start by giving me a message that says.A program is strying to access e-mail addresses you have stored in Outlook. Do you want to allow this? If this is unexpected, it may be a virus and you should choose "No".I respond to Allow access and then choose a recipient from my address book to send to only to receive this message.General mail failure. Close Microsoft Office Word, restart the mail system and try again. I've tried closing word and Outlook and restarting them with no success. I've researched and found this problem when Vista was first released but the registry entry fixes identified as work arounds there don't work. how we can still use the routing recipient in Word 2003 while in Window 7.
I am running MS Office 2007 (student edition)When opening a word document it has started freezing on the word splash screen. I then get the error "There was a problem sending the command to the programme".The only way to get rid of the splash screen is through task manager and kill the process.I have unistalled office and re-installed then updated with SP1 and 2 for it.I am still getting the same error. All other office applications are working fine.
I have Windows 7 64bit. I use google chrome as my browser. I just got Office 2010 and downloaded it off Microsoft's website. Now when I download and try to open a word document from my professor it does this, Windows is not responding, windows is checking for solutions, and then shut down. I then haft to open it in safe mode enable editing and then I can work with it.I tried changing the trust center options and it saves my changes to the trust center when I open word from my computer, but when I open it from a website it does not save it.
I have Office 2003 Word installed on 3 Windows 7 Home Premium machines, but on one of them the program is very slow to open and close. I have uninstalled and re-installed many times with no improvement.
There are strange icons when I am in Windows 7 with Office 2007. I first noticed this when I needed to do a project. Because of the lack of new software, I had to save the file in the doc file format. Then, when I tried to open it to edit it, I noticed that the file icon was not right. It was the blank file icon with the Word 2007 icon on it. Then, I noticed that the rtf files have the correct file icon for doc files. The files can still open, but the wrong icon drives me nuts!
I have a recent installation of Windows 7 Professional 3 weeks ago.The past 2 days, Word 2007 will not open when i double click a .docx document from Explorer.For a couple of seconds a 'spinning wheel' is displayed...and then nothing.I went to Control Panel, Defaults, and checked the Application for .docx and it is Word.The strange thing is that sometimes it does work.I am clicking very fast And Windows 7 does display the spinning wheel for a second or two.
Windows 7. This started happening about a week ago. When I receive an email that has a link or when I even click on something I want to open that has a link. It opens the link in WORD. In order to open the link I have to save as a favorite and then it will open.
One of the schools we work in uses a resource called Primary Resources. It includes downloadable files that can be used for teaching. Here is a link:Primary Resources: English: Word Level: Spelling & PhonicsThe teaches are trying to download the .DOC files on the web page but they are getting a popup in IE to save saying the file may be corrupted. In the background word crashes and has a box saying "Word cannot close because there is an active dialog box open". You then have to end the process to be able to use word again.
Last night, my computer rebooted itself unexpectedly while I was accessing a Word document. I was constantly saving the document, so I expected that it would come back up when the computer rebooted. Every time I try to open it in Word, it says that the file is corrupt and cannot be read. I have tried the Open & Repair function. I have also tried the Extract Text from All Files function. When I did the latter, the document came up to about 1,000 pages worth of different codes. When I open it in WordPad, the most recent things I saved did not come up. I am absolutely sure that I saved what I was working on. Is there any way I can fix this corrupt file? It is a crucial part of an assignment.
We upgraded Office Home and Student 2010 a month or so ago. It works fine on one account but Word freezes when trying to save a file on another account. The Excel works ok.I have to restart to get out of it. I opened another account to see if it would work, it did
Having opened a Works Database I open a Word document to create labels. "Mailings" produces the Mail Merge boxes. Having selected "use existing list" I get a box containing various coding options, Western(Windows) being highlighted - the rest are different languages, e.g. Turkish, Korean etc. On selecting "Select recipients" I get a list in one of the obscure languages. I have tried various methods but am unable to get the list from my database. Labels used to work perfectly with Word 2007 and MS Works.
In the Find and Replace window (Ctrl+h) in Word 2010, alt+a is Replace All. I use this ALL DAY, EVERY DAY. For the third time in the last year, this has now stopped working. Alt+R works (Replace), Alt+F works (Find), just the one that I REALLY NEED doesn't work.I have found the solution the last two times it happened, but now I can't find it for the life of me. It had something to do with the keyboard, I think it was something to do with the accessibility tab or the driver or something, but I can't find it now. I uninstalled and reinstalled the keyboard, I deleted the Normal.dotm file, all to no avail.
