Solved: Word 2007, saving document as html document: how to get rid of extra folder?

Question: Solved: Word 2007, saving document as html document: how to get rid of extra folder?

When saving a Word 2007 document as a webpage (htm, html), an extra folder is automatically created besides the hmtl document itself. This folder contains background information like pictures, wallpaper etc. Is there a way to prevent that folder from being created in the first place? I've got Word 2000 on another computer, and when I save my word documents as html files over there, that extra folder is not generated. The only time that folder is created in 2000 is if my documents contain pictures, wallpaper etc. In Word 2007, it is created all the time, even though my documents are just plain text.

Answer: Solved: Word 2007, saving document as html document: how to get rid of extra folder?

Managed to find the solution, it was very simple after all. One has to save the document as a filtered webpage and click "yes" when a box pops up warning you that you will use certain featuers which are specific to Office2007, such as the background. Then the document will save without that extra folder and files.

We are using Word 2007 in Vista. We have never had any problems with it since installing in 2007. Last week, I was saving a document and it opened the target folder as usual and just froze. There was no error message. The busy icon was on screen but nothing was happening. I couldn't access anything else. I had to restart using Ctrl-Alt-Del. This has happened a number of times. By default it is saving docs as .docx. I hope this is enough info. As we are typical in size of a small business, it needs to be sorted asap. Thanks for any suggestions.

Often when I open an existing Word 2007 or Excel 2007 document, two document windows open. One is the desired document. The other is a blank and untitled window perhaps better termed an ?empty? window with a pale blue color. None of the elements in the Ribbon are active (grayed out, or dimly ?blued out?). It is like a phantom window alongside the desired window. Nothing can be typed into the phantom. The phantom can be closed and the desired document remains. Also, the desired document can be closed and the phantom remains.

This only happens when I am opening by double left clicking on a file from within a Windows folder. If I open the file by right clicking and ?Open?, I do not get the extra document. The behavior is inconsistent; after a few various Office documents are opened, the behavior ceases and only the desired window appears. Behavior is confined to Word and Excel; double clicking on other types of documents, such as text, Acrobat, or photo files does not give this problem.

I also looked at this problem in Task Manager.
When I open a file by right-click + Open, I see one application task in T.M. that begins with the normal Word 2007 file icon on the left: a small W with a few tiny lines (within the icon) under the W. Then Filename - Microsoft Word non-commercial use; then under Status is shown Running. This is the desired file. When I open a file by double-clicking with the left mouse, two application tasks show up in T.M. Neither of these tasks has the normal ... Read more

I have two questions regarding documents created in Word 2007...

1) Can links be created within a Word document? For example, can I click on and item my table of contents and have the document jump to that particular section of the document?

2) Also, is there a way to make sections of the document hidden until the user clicks a specific word or graphic in the document?

I'd like to specify a particular instruction and include a "Show example" link that would make a detailed example appear for those who needed the extra help.

Thanks everyone!

Answer:Word 2007 - Links within a document? Hide/Show sections of a document?

If you created table of contents through References - Table of Contents, you can hold Ctrl and click on the item in that table, word will take you there. This feature is standard.

Also, to navigate inside document you can use bookmark option.
Insert bookmarks. Word 2010 Bookmarks
Then insert Hyperlink - in the window select second tab "Place in This Document" and choose your bookmark.

As for hiding parts of document, I do not think that is possible.
You can create that in HTML document with javascript, but not in Word document.

Is it possible that when you save in Word (2000) it makes a backup copy on the C:?? I save all my work on a Floppy disk then put in my computer with printer (then print it). However recently my disk drive has been playing up and have lost everything on the disk.

So when I save something on a floppy it also creates a backup on the computers hard drive. (Saves file on Floppy A:\letter.doc and creates a backup on hard drive c:\backups\letter.bac)

I know you can create backups on word except it saves them in the same directory (in this case a:\ which is pointless since I lose all data on the disk)

Anyone tell me if i can do this?

Hi all.

The other day whilst in the throws of fixing another unrelated problem I came across a strange and annoying Word Document problem.

When I bought this word document up it present a very unusual icon. It was grayed out and part of the title contained a ~$ then the name of the document.

When I tried to open it, the word document only opened up to the gray page just before it should turn white displaying the text, and there it froze.

Nothing worked after that! The freeze was so bad that the only way to close the window was to turn the computer off at the tower.

After rebooting I tried it again 2 more times with the same problem freeze occurring in the Word document.

Today I again found another document that caused the same problem, this time the icon for that document was normal but right beside this icon was another malformed grayed out ~$(name) icon.

When I tried to open either of the 2 icons I got the same freezing up problem, just as before.

I tried a previously suggested step in that I opened "Word" and from there navigated to where the bad files were located.

In turn I only hi-lighted each, and at the bottom of that window clicked on the arrow for the drop down box.

I was advised that one of the presented options was to repair the file. No such option was present.

So there you have it. Any advice on this problem please?


Answer:[SOLVED] Word document freezes computer and document is corrupted

Hi all.

Just to advise that I am going to mark this topic as a fashion so to speak.
I may resurrect it at a later stage if the problem re-presents it's self.

In a nut shell. I spent a lot of time today searching sites and performing tests including searches on my computer program.

I ascertained that all the aforementioned "defective " Word documents originated in the same folder. After performing several search functions with the criteria as ~$.doc no other such files were found on my computer, other that the already mentioned.

All tests suggested would not repair the said documents.

I have now deleted the offenders and I will monitor the situation. If I run into problems again I will re-post.

Thanks anyway.

After tracking changes to a document in MS Word 2007, i am unable to print the *original* document. Even when i make sure that i have 'original' showing, even when i turn track changes off, even when i select 'document' in the print dialog box (rather than 'document showing mark-up'), even when i check in print preview and see the original showing as the document to be printed - what actually gets printed is the document with changes (no comments and no red highlighted additions and deletions, but still with the changes in the document and NOT the original.) Really tried everything i can think of. Had this problem multiple times with multiple documents. Any advice very much appreciated!

Answer:Solved: MS Word 2007 - tracked changes, but cannot print original document

Tricky - I've not had that particular problem before, but Word can certainly get its knickers in a knot over certain things, and Track Changes is one of them.

It sounds as though the file might be corrupted somewhere. If so, a workaround I've often used is:
1. Create a new blank Word doc.
2. Go copy everything out of the crap Word file but take great care to LEAVE BEHIND the very last paragraph marker. (You will need to make para marks visible to make sure).
3. Switch files, & paste everything into the new Word doc.

Don't know whether this will help, but it would be worth trying. It definitely works for many problems.

I've spent a long time fiddling with the Header and Footer to get just what the User wanted, and I know i could just cut-n-paste the Header and Footer into a new document, then save it as "xxx.docx", but when I looked on various help sites the normal method in Word 2010 seems to be

Answer:saving new document as WORD

In Internet Explorer (assuming that is your browser of choice) right click a balnk part of the IE toolbar at the top and select "customize"

Then add the "edit button" (assuming it's not already on the toolbar) and it should offer you the choice of "editing" the webpage in Word.

If on the other hand you are "Saving as" a .txt file, simply change your file associations to open txt files with Word will achieve a similar result.

As it stands, from reading your post its quite unclear exactly what you are doing.

Answer:Saving a word document to a CD

They are labeled CD-RW.
If it's not a CD-RW you can't update files already burned to the CD.

If it's a "write once" CD I believe you can add more files if you did not do a "finalized" burn.
They are labeled CD-R.

Answer:Saving As Word Document

First choice will normally be whatever's appropriate to what you are trying to change. So if you're in Word, it should normally be as a Word document, if you're on the web, it will be as a web page.If you're in Word (you don't say) - go to Tools - Options - Save and change the default to whatever you want.

I keep a journal and try to update it daily. This morning I updated the journal and got an error message that was being overwritten and did I want to do that? No. Then I got another message that said my file was read only. Hmm. I look again and it says is read only. I click on cancel, and everything closes. Curious, I open my document again--and it can't be found. I looked in temp, Recent, everywhere I could think and the document is gone, though it's listed in Recent. When I do a search it lists the document as 548kb, but when I click on the link, it says it can't be found, and when I click on "open containing folder" there's a shortcut but no document.

I have a backup from a couple of days ago, but since I'd updated the journal I'd really like to find it again. Is there any way to do that?

I was doing some editing the other night and had finished and saved the document (a large one), safely I thought. Then I shut down the whole computer, and an error message came up saying that WORD.EXE failed. I cancelled it and thought nothing of it, but on logging on again last night I found signs that the editing I'd done hadn't been saved. Is there any way I can get the edited version back? Was it because word.exe crashed?

Word is pretty stable though very long or complex documents do rather push it.I think you have lost the edited work this time.Have you tried Tools > Options > Save and setting the time between auto saves?There is the option of Master documents (which I have never needed to use and don't understand) but imagine this is a way of coping with smaller chunks of the whopper at a time.Word may have been cut off while it was saving or closing and simply lost it.I have had this happen in other apps where RAM was at a premium because I was doing a montage or playing with all sorts of imports into a different application.Whatever, when the smoke has cleared all the recent work has disappeared.As grumpyguts suggested Save frequently and if it is that important "Save_As something else now and then.

I'm using Word 2007 as a part of Office 2007 on an Acer tablet running Windows 8.1 with all the latest updates.

I mostly use the tablet in portrait mode using the Hot Virtual Keyboard OSK. I'm pretty happy with the standard "Print Layout" view from a functional standpoint, but I wanted to try the "Web Layout" view to see if this would circumvent a bug with the OSK that causes the word prediction list to disappear. I'm about 100% certain the Word problem itself is completely unrelated to the OSK.

Here's the issue. Everything works fine when I'm using the "Print Layout" mode. But when I switch to "Web Layout," and then try to save my document at any point after this (including immediately after), Word will crash with the following error:

"Microsoft Office Word has stopped working

Windows is checking for a solution to the problem..."

Of course it does not find a solution.

I've run the Office Diagnostics, and no problem has been found. If I restart Word and let it do "repairs" to the document, then I fall down a rabbit hole into further, stranger problems. If, however, I delete any "repairs" and just reopen the original document, right back in "Print Layout" view, everything is back to normal again.

I would very much like to be able to use the "Web Layout" view, but of course right now I can't.

I don't even know where to begin in terms of trouble-shooting this issue,... Read more

Answer:Windows 2007 Crashes when saving a document under Web Layout view

Unless you plan on publishing on-line, I never found much use for the Web Layout view. Just a guess, but maybe the prediction was never made to work with the combo of the on screen keyboard and the Web view. Hopefully someone who does this can either verify yes or no for the function.

I use a variety of templates and plain documents in my work and can not pin point it to one template.

If you leave Word open with a document (no matter what size) and come back to it later this is when the problem happens. I started to get around it my saving first then closing, but this no longer works. The save completes and then I select Close and this is when it happens - you get the dreaded pause and then you hear the whirl of the computer and then you get the Microsoft Word for Windows has encountered a problem and needs to close.

This is just one of those odd quirks I have run into. When I open a new document in Word, then open an older file, the new document closes and only the old one is displayed.Using Microsoft Office 2010, specifically Word.Windows 7 64-bitA bit of explanation, I often do research/writing for school or for fun. This issue has always happened, just one of those small annoyances.Here is the exact thing that is happening:1. I open a new (blank) word document, by clicking on the Word icon or by selecting "Open New Document" in the Word program.2. I open an older (saved) Word document, by clicking on the saved file, not by using the "Open" function in Word.3. The New (empty) document disappears, only the older document is open. I must now open a new empty document to write in. What I want to happen:1. Open new document2. Open old document3. Both new and old document are open (2 windows).Other notes in no particular order:- Word has always operated like this. Just wondering if there is a way to stop it.- I am not using the "Open" function in Word to open the older file, I am opening the older file by double-clicking it in the File explorer. When I use the "Open" function in Word, it does the same (basically "closing" the new file in order to open the old one). - I tried searching through Word's settings but couldn't find anything that seemed to relate to this behavior.- As per regular Word behavior, the new document is auto-na...

Answer:Microsoft Word Question (Opening old document closes new empty document)

Yes, you are right. That is normal for MS Word.Do this:Open a new document. Type something. Even a single space. Save it with a name you want. Now open an older document. Both documents can be on the screen or cascaded.If memory is not an issue, you can haven two instances of Word.

I am on a network at work. When I take my laptop off of the network, I have noticed a bluescreen error followed by a shutdown. This happens when I open Word 2013, create a new file, and attempt to save it to my desktop.

I have attached the .dmp files in the zip file with this post. Can someone take a look at these dmp files and analyze them? I am happy to give any more info if needed, just let me know what is needed! Thanks!

It would appear the problem relates to Kaspersky Security software. Your dump files are indicating klvfs.sys as the problematic driver which is part of their software.
A quick google and it would seem you are not alone, someone mentioned not having the encryption element of their software installed seemed to help but I would start by removing Kaspersky if only for testing to see if it works ok

I am really confused and frustrated. Just finished spending the last 8 hours writing a research paper. It's about 7 pages, and I went to click save as, decided the name, and then said ok...and now my microsoft word window says not responding. I checked the folder where I saved the document, and it has a document by that name, but it's 0 KB big and when you double click on it it's an empty word document. Omg, I can't have just wasted 8 hours of writing. I'm afraid to force the program to quit because then I'll lose everything for sure. I used the vista snipping tool to take a snapshot of the part of the page that is showing, but I can't get it to unfreeze...has anyone had this problem, and is there a way to unfreeze it so I can at least copy out the text?

I'm assuming this is something simple, it's on a friend's pc, and someone else has spent hours trying to fix it to no avail. What they tell me is happening is that when a document is saved (like a newsletter) all the formatting disappears and it's in the form of one big paragraph. It happens when saving new or when saving exsisting documents that are being worked on. It's happening on a nice old lady's pc, and I'd really like to help her get it fixed, but I'm a WordPerfect person. Any ideas what may be going on and how to correct it, other than reinstalling Word?

This might be kind of tricky.

We're trying to streamline our RFQ-to-Quote process, which currently utilizes a combination of digital forms and hand-written forms passed among several departments. My boss asked me to modify the RFQ form to save him some typing (because he has to retype all the information in the final Quote), and I--not understanding the complexity of the process--very stupidly told him that it could be done fairly simply using form fields and bookmarks. He's been kind enough to grant me a lot of leniency because for him anything would be better than the current situation, so as long as I can improve on what we use now, he'll be happy.

I thought about creating form templates for each of the departments, then as the original RFQ circulated from one department to the next subsequent forms would be appended to it to create a rolling document. I'm not too happy with the that idea; there's all sorts of room for user error. I thought about creating a single document template containing every department's form, but a) I don't want any single department to be able to modify information gathered during another department's process, and b) certain departments must generate a variable number of copies of their form.

I told my boss the best way to accomplish a secure and low-maintenance RFQ-to-Quote would be to create a stand-alone Quote Generator application, but we both agree the effort is not condusive to the timeframe by whic... Read more

On my previous computer with Windows 2000, I was able to make incremental backups of a Microsoft Word document while it was being created by me. The advantage of this was that if an "accident" happened and the document was lost or corrupted before it was completed or saved to a folder, the partially completed document could be retrieved from a special folder somewhere in C-drive. I was able to specify how often a new backup was created (ex.: every 3 minutes, ex.; every 10 minutes, etc.). It is possible that this special folder also contained backups of all previously saved Word documents, which were also being re-backed up every few minutes. -- I cannot find any reference to this on my new computer (Windows XP and Microsoft Word 2002) in the Windows search engine, or in the Word user interface "Help". I cannot remember how I found this feature on my previous (W~2000) computer. -- Thanks

I was working on a Word document that someone sent me by email in form of rar and saved the document. I now can't find the revised file and I have lost about 8 hours of work. Any ideas on where I can find this file? I looked in the email that was originally sent, but it is still the old file. I have also done searching on my computer with no luck. Help, I'm desperate!!! I have Word 2007. Please give me reply as soon as possible.

Answer:Cannot find the saved revised document in Word document

If you were only hitting "Save" and not "Save As" the document is likely, unfortunately, gone. You can try opening Word by itself and going through recent documents to see if it shows up. If you opened it directly from the email and the email was in Outlook, you might be able to find it in the Outlook Secure Temp Folder. To get to this folder, the easiest way is to send yourself a PDF file, open the PDF from the email then go to File | Properties and on the General tab (this is from memory, so I might be off a little bit) you'll find a location that you can click on. In this folder, you have a slight chance of finding the modified file. The only other option you have, that I can think of, would be digging through your temp folders hoping to find a .tmp or .doc file in there that has the content, but I give that about a .01% chance of happening. Good Luck!

I work at a small non-profit and we have updated two computers with new computers running Windows 7. We use MS Word 2003. I have checked all threads on forum related to this issue, but nothing seems to correct our problem. I would be grateful for any help.

Description of issue: With a Word document open, one should be able to click "File" > "Send To" > Mail Recipient As Attachment", or any of the other mail options, and have the email composition window of Thunderbird pop up. What happens is that Word is attempting to send the attachment via Windows Live Mail. The computer basically freezes. If you try and abort or get out of Word, and error pops up stating you can't close Word until the email has been sent. Finally, you have to force a shut down of the computer.

Internet Explorer shows Thunderbird as default email client. I have check all of the other obvious places for setting the default email client, but I can't seem to find a conflict anywhere on the computer showing Windows Live Email as default client.

As a side note, this employee was using Outlook Express as their email client prior to the computer upgrade and all setting were imported into Windows Live Mail, which was initially used.

I am trying to compile an index for my collected travelogues. My intention is to have the Main Entry contain the name of a country and the Sub Entry contain a place in that country (eg England/Canterbury). From what I can determine it doesn't seem possible to set a default Main Entry (eg England) and then mark sub-entries (eg Canterbury) so that each time I mark an entry it automatically becomes a sub-entry of the main entry. It seems to me (and I'm probably wrong) that compiling an index for a 124 page document will be very time consuming as I will have to manually enter the main entry and sub-entry each time I want an item to appear as a sub-entry of a main entry.

Does my post make sense? A summary of what I want is:

MAIN ENTRY: England (default so I don't have to keep typing it in)
SUB-ENTRY: Canterbury (entered by Word when I mark it)

I compiled an index for another document some time ago in the same style but can't remember what I did.

Also, my company name is NOT in my login info, so there is no company coming up, I would like to change these properties so that everytime I start a document it's already there.

I'm in a bit of a muddle with a file. I run a Packard Bell computer with Windows 7 64 bit. I created a novel with word 2007, complete with an index. All seemed well until I wanted to change it in prep for making into an eBook. I removed the index marks and converted it to .doc format, and since then every time I do anything to the work it wont save it except as a new file in a new name. Then I can't delete the old file as it says it is still open (which it isn't). I can't change the name of it or move it or put it in a separate folder or anything. So now I have about six or seven of these frozen files scattered on my computer, getting confused as to which one is the most up to date, and I'm a bit worried that when I send one off for converting to eBook it might be rejected for being corrupted. I tried using an unlocker, and it said it had worked but the files are still frozen just the same. Help!!!

Answer:Word 2007 document frozen

Sounnds like you may be leaving temporary files around when the documents are saved/closed. Have a look in the folder where you document is stored for files with odd names starting with ~. These may be causing the problems.
For safety's sake do back everything up before deleting anything.

Yes, I want to view these files OR
No, remove the files, I have saved the files I need.

Answer:How to remove formatting from a Ms Word 2007 document

I'm not sure this is the best way to do this but you can make your changes such as tabs, borders, fonts etc and "save as" a template. Next time you run word you can click "New" and select "My Templates" and open the one you saved. I just looked into it and a better way to do this would be to make the changes you want to be the usual settings and then select the little arrow at the lower right hand corner of the "Page Setup" tab. Here you can select "Default" which will open a window that asks "Do you want to change the default settings for page setup" which is what I think you are trying to do.

Hi there

My appoligies if there is already a thread on this topic, but I have tried to go through everything and have not picked anything up. My problem:

I have designed a letterhead layout for one of my clients in Microsoft Word 2007(there is an image inserted into the top of the document, then I have inserted text boxes containing contact details etc), now when the client opens the letterhead, she only sees the the image, the text boxes are gone???

Now she has just sent me an email explaining her problem, but when I open the attachment I see the text boxes with their content and everything else. Are we going crazy here? The ONLY thing I can think of, that would cause this problem, is that I am using Office 2007 and she is using and older version, but what boggles my mind here, is that I have saved the document as "Word 97-2003 document" and my client still can't see the text boxes (only the image header). Am I doing something wrong here? Is there something need to install?

I am using Windows XP, Professional, version 2002 (Service Pack 3) with Microsoft Office 2007, my client says she is also using XP 2002, but with Microsoft Office 2003.

Here's what doesn't work: selecting text, clicking on font, deselecting strike-through on drop-down menu. This is the most common answer I have found so far but it doesn't work on my comp. Best guess: which is at fault A) the above answer B) my computer (i.e. virus or whatever) or C) yours truly?

I am running Word 2007 on Vista. Every time I open up Word or try or try and create a new document, clicking on 'blank document', it opens up with several print screens that I created and saved as a different document.

No matter what I try and create, the 'blank' document always has these 6 print screen images in the document. Is there a way to get rid of these in my blank document template?

Thanks in advance for your help!

How do you set Word 2007 so that each new document automatically have pagination, without you yourself need to insert page numbers each time. Thanks for replies!

Answer:Word 2007 - Automatic pagination of each new document

This may or may not be the correct way to do what you want, but it will work.

Create a Word document with the number in the Footer (I'm assuming you know how to do that). Save the blank (except for the Footer, of course) document in a convenient place and simply use it as a format for future Word documents. Problem solved.

So I am officially desperate! I worked on a project in Microsoft Word 2007. I then went to go open it the next day and all of the text was completely gone!! I am only a beginner when it comes to computers so I have absolutely no idea what happened.
To better understand the problem here were the chain of events:
I worked on 2 documents, saved them in a folder, and then closed MSWord
I then worked on them the next day not realizing that for some reason they were opened as "Read Only"
Seeing that, I copied the the text and saved them in new documents
I went to Documents and attempted to move the new documents into the folder with the originals but an error message reading something like "this action cannot be completed because the file is open in another program" when the file was NOT open
In my frustration I attempted to move it over and over again to no avail
I gave up and closed the Documents folder and turned off my computer
The very next day I went to open the project and both the original documents and the copied ones were COMPLETELY EMPTY!!!
the files were still there but the all of text was completely gone!
Through Microsoft forums I've repeatedly tried the "Recover Text from any File" and "Open and Repair" methods
They've remained completely empty
I don't think I can redo the project correctly in the time it is due! Please any info will help. Thanks

Also, if this helps- I tried to save another Document and MSW says... Read more

I have found that when I run word 2007 or any other office 2007 program and go to the open a file icon, you then get the open file window that has all of my word documents. Since I saved them with thumbnails, there is a thumbnail of each document saved. Now here comes the problem; over on the right there is the preview pane and when you click on a file for preview, I get the error message: "This file can't be previewed because of an error in the Microsoft Office Word previewer". Of course I have googled this problem, but I haven't found much info other that to run the program with the /a on the end of the desktop short cut which turns off many of Words add-ins and other things that I really don't know about. Yes when you run it in this mode, the preview handler does work as it should. Does know the cause of this behavior and have a solution?

Answer:Office 2007 Open Word Document Window

Since running the program with the /a locks out plug-ins and such, I should of known that a plug-in was causing the problem. I disabled Adobe plug-in and it now works. How about that.

I'm going to tell the whole story incase the answer is somewhere lost in one of the steps I took. I'm writing a paper for school and it needs to be on Word 2007. I have two accesses to this type of Microsoft Word. At my boyfriend's house and at school. I started it at my boyfriends house and didn't have my flash drive, so I e-mailed it as an attatchment to my yahoo e-mail. When I was at school, I opened it and worked on it again. I saved it. Later still at school, I opened it, worked on it again and saved it. As I was saving it I realized that the one I had originally opened from my boyfriend's house was the file extention .docx and the file extention my school uses, even though they both are Microsoft Word 2007, was .doc. So I saved it twice just incase one file wouldn't open. When I got to my boyfriends house, I opened the .doc file. It came up and I finished my paper. Throughout working on it, I randomly and continually clicked the "save" button. Not the "save as". When I was finally finished, I went to upload it onto the internet to turn it in like I always do, and I couldn't find it. I of course closed the program before I realized I couldn't find it, so I couldn't try to resave it as something else. I know I saved it more than once. I looked everywhere I can possibly think of!! The recent documents, my documents, everything.

I really need help. Please someone tell me there's a way to find it. It mus... Read more

Answer:Lost But Saved Microsoft Word 2007 Document

It "saved" to a temporary folder. If you've searched the whole drive for the file name and it didn't show up, then it has already been wiped out. When working with e-mail attachments, you need to save it to a known location before making changes to it.

I need help with word 2007. When I open my document (.doc format), word automatically reformats it during loading. After this, I see a lots of garbage in the contents list. This garbage are in fact lines from my document. In the document they look just like other text, but they appear in the list. When I update the style of these lines (for example it uses normal and I just click on normal style), they disappears from the list. I save the document but next time word reformats it again and I have the exactly the same garbage in the contents list. I realized I can stop the formmating during document open by ESC, which at least does not corrupt the document again, but how do I repair the document permanently?

What is wrong with my document? How do I repair my document?

Need help trying to save a word 2007 document. Am running Windows Vista. I have been working on this document for the past couple of days, a high school maths investigation with lots of equations and graphs copied over from 'Autograph' a 3d graphing software. I have been able to save it with ease with all this stuff on it until an hour ago. When I press CTRL+S it opens up the save as box (even though i've already saved it before). Then when i press save in this dialog box the box closes for a half a second before opening again without me pressing anything. I do it again and again and notice the little loading bar that tells you it's saving in the bottom right hand corner of the document gets stuck and then stops when the box opens up again. I've tried to rename it and this doesn't work. i copied it into an old word document and then saved that document and that document wouldn't save either. i got rid of it off that document and the old document saved perfectly. I closed it just to check it was actually not saving and it isn't. Is there something wrong with my document? or is it word? please help!

Hi Everyone,
I am wondering if it is possible to add new fields to the Document Property items of Quick Parts (Insert - Quick Parts - Document Property). Right now it only lists 15 items (Abstract, Author, .... Subject, Title).

I use them for doing Auto-fills (ie, if I have 30 Titles in my document, then just entering the first one will auto-populate the rest), but I would like more.

Thanks in advance!!

I have MS Word 2007 and the one thing I hate about it is it's default document settings. These are the settings that are applied when I open a new document in MS Word. Exactly what I dislike is the line spacing. It is always set to 1.15 and there is also a new setting I've never seen in a MS word application. It is simply stated as After and is measured by a pt value. This setting is always at 12 and I want it to be 0.If anybody knows how to keep these settings permanent please give me a heads up.
