Preferred Solution: document problem

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: document problem

Ravi, you really must say what program you are working with and what version of Windows.

We could make a guess that its Word, but thats about all.

Have a look at this link for a start.

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.

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 running XP and Word 2000 and Nortons. Word will crash if you leave the document open for a while (there is no specific time frame) and then select close (icon). The error - Microsoft Word for Windows has encountered a problem and needs to close. The details are: AppName: winword.exe
appver 9.0.0.3822
Modname: kernel32.dll
modvers: 5.1.26002180
offset 0001eb33

This has pretty much happened since I got this laptop. I have reformatted and reinstalled everything (due to another problem) and still have the same problem with word. I have used the same CD on other computers to install word and they do not have the same problem.

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. Firstly I could put up with it but is now just a nusiance.

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.

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?

Regards

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

Hi all.

Just to advise that I am going to mark this topic as Solved......to 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.

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

Hi....
I'm using word 2010.
I have a Mailmerge document (actually a company letter with header and footer, used by a package called "Cash4Windows" [C4W]). This document usually has the recipients name and address etc. inserted by C4W.
The document is a template - "xxx.dotx".
What I want to do is strip out the Mailmerge fields and save the document as a normal Word 2010 document, 'cos the User wants to have a blank standard company document available.
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

Select Mailings
Select "Start Mail Merge"
Select "Normal Word Document"
then save the Word document.
I've tried this and it has absolutely no effect, as when I close and reopen Word and select the previously saved document, I still get the "Opening the document will run the following SQL command" splash screen!

I can not give you any precise answer but it is maybe because of office specific settings or you press accidentally some key on the keyboard and on this way interrupt symbols entering.

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

Hi,

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. The employee did not like Windows Live Mail, so I installed Thunderbird. It is used as the default email client and the only issue has been with Word.

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!

A friend has scanned a document and sent it to me but I cant open it. I am using windows 98SE and have Kodak Imaging for Windows and Epson PhotoQuick 3.4. The error message is "the documents format is invalid or not supported" any ideas?

Answer:Scanned document problem

You need to find out what file format the document has been sent to you in, (jpeg,tiff,bmp etc), right click it and select properties that should tell you what it it, next you need to download and install a viewer program that will open that particular file, (and others) members on the forum seem to favour Irfan view but there are plenty of other free ones about, some are available from click hereHope this helps...alB

hi all,

I'm sure this is very basic to solve but I am not a hugely experienced user of office.

I am trying to make a table in word 2000; but with the names in the margins at 90 degrees to each other. (does that make sence?) Actually what I would like to do is have the months of the year JAN, FEB, MAR, etc running vertically down the page to save space.

Hope someone can help.

I have a Dell Inspiron 1501 running on Microsoft Vista home basic, with Microsoft office 2007. Occasionally when I open a document and make some changes I cannot save the document. I must save the document with another name. For example I have a client list with addresses and email addresses. If I open the document, "CLIENT LIST 2008", and make some changes when I hit the save icon it asks for another name of the current document. So I end up having to save it as CLIENT LIST 2008A and then delete the original document CLIENT LIST 2008 and then rename CLIENT LIST 2008A to CLIENT LIST 2008, the original document. It's a pain in the a**. What must I do to just save my documents to the original name.Peter

My daughter bought me an HP Photosmart printer/scanner/copier for xmas. I need to scan quite a few legal documents into the computer and then I want to edit the documents once scanned. So far I can't edit anything scanned.

I heard that I need a CDR or Adobe Writer to do this. I just checked Adobe Writer online and it's $129 ---- far cheaper for me to retype all the documents from the originals. Is there any free software that would enable me to edit a scanned document so I don't have to retype everything?

Now she can't find where she put it and is very upset about it. I can't seem to find it either. I've looked everywhere. It's somewhere isn't it? She saved it but we can't find it on her computer anywhere.

Does anyone have any idea where this file could be? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Answer:Problem finding a lost document

The eaiest way would be to use windows search to look for the file name.

Also not sure what verison of Windows that computer has, but I would just check the temp folders as that is where all downloads go when you check open and not save as.

Also if it was done in word, it will usually have the last 5 (i think) documents opened i word under the file menu. You can try looking there and open it from that and chose save as.

I am having a weird problem with a Dell Inspiron B130 (Celeron processor) laptop that I can't seem to figure out. Here's what is going on. I can access the My Music tab under My Documents, but the problem occurs once I close or X it out. For some reason, when I close the tab out, all the icons on my desktop will flash blankly, then everything will completely disappear off the desktop (with the exception of the background image). After around 15 seconds or so, the icons will reappear on the screen and I can continue with what I am doing. This primarily happens when I close the My Music tab, but will sometimes do it with other tabs under My Documents.

I have a Word document which I cannot open, and which cannot be opened by two other people on different computers. It was created in Word 2010, saved as Word 97-2003, emailed to a person with Word 2007, who made some editing suggestions using "Track Changes", saved it without changing the file type, and emailed it back to the creator. Now, nobody - including the person who did the "track changes" is able to open the document with the editing suggestions, and I'm trying to work out why.

The document was originally created on a Windows Vista machine, the editing was done on a Windows 2007 machine, and I have tried to trouble shoot on my own computer, which runs Windows 2010 64, with Office 2010. When I try to open the document by double clicking it, the Word Logo appears, saying "opening in protected view", but then nothing more happens. Word never opens completely. Word has not frozen, because clicking "cancel" closes it down. If I open Word first, and open the document from "file - open" the same thing happens - "opening in protected view" and then nothing.

Operating system Windows XP home---Microsoft Word 2000

After just finishing up a 21 post session in Malware removal successfully, I have discovered a document problem in Word 2000! I am not a heavy word user, so 2000 has always worked fine for the personal tasks I use it for.

I typed in two short lines of script IDing a software program I recently downloaded, to tape to my tower to remember when to run the program. Now whenever I go to word, the two lines of script show up on the screen? I can highlight the lines and delete them to compose a new document, but the next time I go into word they reappear again.

In trying to permanently remove the lines, I have rummaged around in word and found in "file" - ( CCleaner optimization.doc) and when I click on that I get the following Microsoft Window that states:

The document or path is not valid. Try these suggestions.
*Check the file permissions for the document or drive
*Use the file open dialog boxto locate the document
C:\...\CCleaner optimazation.doc)

How do I find this document so I can delete the file and am concerned that everything I now type in word will create a new document file! There are three other document files above this one which I never wanted to keep.!

Can I just search in my C drive and find these files and delete them?

Any help wouldbe appreciated. Thanks, Tom

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.

Anyone's assistance here would be greatly appreciated.

Hi - can anyone explain this please? I’ve received a set of accounts as a Word 97 -2003 document which has opened in my Word 2007 in compatibility mode.
It looks perfect on my screen but when I email it to people, it loses some formatting (blank pages appear, footers slip to the top of the next page etc). I’ve tried the following: saving it as a .docx document, saving it as a PDF, printing using PDF Converter program and then sending as a PDF, and saving as rtf. Each time, it’s fine when it leaves me but isn’t when it arrives with the handful of people who are helping me sort it out (they are using Word 2007 and 2010).
If the worst comes to the worst, I know I can scan all 15 pages and send it, but I just don’t understand how in particular the PDFs can change. So frustrating and I don’t like to be beaten!

Hi,

I've create a template at work with a lot of Quick Part functions stored in template modes. This template is distributed as zip via our internet-based file server.

When my colleagues open a new document based on the template everything works perfectly, but problems occur if they close the document. If the do so, all Quick Parts functions are lost (it is as if the document doesn't inherrit the settings of the template - pardon my non-technical language).

Is it true that functions stored in Quick Parts in the template don't work after the document based on the template is closed (or am I doing something wrong?)?

I have done typing over the Internet for years. My regular computer is in being fixed and they have given me a loaner. The only strange thing about it is that when I used my own disk to load Word 2003 on the loaner computer, it came up with its own product code - you know those letters and numbers you have to put in -- anyway, I tried to enter my own, but it would not work. I had to use the ones that automatically came up. I don't know how they got there. The only thing I can think of is that the previous owner of the computer had loaded Word and that this was his product code!

Anyway, my work requires the use of templates that are merge documents. I have to install a certain SQL file in C:\WINDOWS\Temp. The file is there. I have checked. But when I open a document it says its looking for the SQL file in C:\WINDOWS\Temp -- but it can't find it.

I have tried and tried all morning - emailing the company back and forth in the UK and it just will not work. I am completely baffled. The file is there - the path is correct and yet it says Word cannot find it.

Does anyone have any suggestions? The only thing I can think of is that the previous owner - the owner of that product code - had some kind of administrative blocking on the computer.

Anyway, I am not making money and would like to figure it out so appreciate any help.
 

Answer:Word 2003 merge document problem

Hi Purley,

How did you get the SQL file into ...temp?

You need to have the SQL file point to a data source; the SQL is just a filter against a data source somewhere else and that connection needs to be established first.

Is the source database on another Server e.g. at the Company you are doing work for?

You should contact the company's IT admin to make sure you have connectivity.

I tried to fix this for hours. I'm trying to copy a table on the first page to the other pages. (I need several pages with the same table) but each time I copy the next table is a little bit more to the right. It's like it's adding a tab automatically or something. I know I can fix it manually but I would like to know why it's doing this.I fixed the problem, thank you.

Answer:Microsoft word problem (tables) Please look at my document

take the image and paste it on your pages like you are, then go up to the tool bar , click on the 2nd box from the _U  < underlined U box..."looks like a bunch of lines.......this should center your table in each page.  continue...etc....

I am a teacher in Tennessee and I need to find a software that will enable me to edit and change a scanned document. I have some old tests and worksheets that I inherited from the teacher that had my room before me. I would like to make some minor changes to the documents without having to retype the entire set of documents. (Things like change the date and the teacher name on the heading, etc...)

Is there a software out there that will allow me to scan a document in and then alter it? These are not copyrighted materials, so that is not an issue.

Preferably, I would like a freeware or shareware or trial version of something to make sure I can navigate it before I shell out a chunk of cash to purchase something.

As a teacher, it is important to me that my materials look professionally done, so I would prefer to edit them on a computer rather than use white out and pen.

thank you so much

Hi, I am trying to edit somethings in a XML document and save it as a notepad or wordpad document. I open it with notepad or wordpad and it allows me to make the changes. However, each time I save it after opening it in notepad or wordpad, it then reverts back to been a XML document.

Answer:XML document won't save as notepad document?

In Notepad/Wordpad, choose Save As and save it with a .txt extension, or else make a copy and change the extension of that from .xml to .txt

Answer:document editing of scanned document?

You can use OCR, i.e text recognition. I'm not 100% sure if Adobe Reader does it, but Adobe Acrobat Pro definitely does. There's probably a few other free alternatives out there as well.

edit: looks like Reader does. How to Enable OCR in Adobe Reader | eHow.com

I have an old .docx document that I encrypted years ago (around 2010). I know the password to the file but I don't remember how I encrypted it (if I used office or a third party app). When I open the document in word it just shows gibberish symbols, it doesn't prompt me for a password. Anyone know how to check what program was used to encrypt the file and how to open it up (like I said I know the PW I just can't get anything to ask me for the password)
Thanks.

Here is the beginning of the document xml file that I retrieved when opening the docx in winzip if this helps:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="true"?>

Answer:Problem opening encrypted document, I know the password to the file

Well if you had encrypted it using the built in function, you would be prompted for the password in order to open it. If you had encrypted it using the Explorer properties for a file or folder, and it was done on the same computer you are using, with the same user name and password to the user profile, it would open normally and not ask for a password. If you used a third party application, you will need it installed on that machine to decrypt it.

Answer:Problem with printing a MS Word document (Ms office 2003)

Hi,

What does the Print Preview for the doc. show?

Does it contain non-standard fonts and/or special characters?

Have you tried opening the doc. in a different Word Processor?

Have you tried converting it to/saving it as a PDF file and then printing it?

Hello,

I've always used MS Photo Editor (PE) as a quick and easy way to paste cropped images into a document or email. I do a print screen, open PE, Click Edit > Paste As New Image, crop the image to size and then copy the cropped image into a document or email. This used to work well 100% of the time but now, after copying the cropped image and pasting it into a doc or email the entire printed screen will paste, not the cropped image. It's driving me nuts because I use this method a lot. I appreciate any suggestions.

Thanks,

Brian ([email protected])

Hi, and welcome to the TSG forum

have you upgraded / updated any of the software.
how do you copy - have you tried edit

I have found that sometimes I need to use the edit / copy/paste rather than cntrl C / contrl C or even right clicking.
