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.

Answer: Transfering word perferct document to Word

You should be able to hit File-Open from Word. Change the files of type (at the bottom of the dialog box) to "all files, *.*" and just double-click the Wordperfect document. It should automatically convert it.

After that, if I were you, I'd go to Tools-Options, Compatibility tab. Change compatibility to Word document. Then, hit ctrl-a to select the entire document, go to Format-Paragraph and make sure line spacing is single; then change the font to Arial, Times new roman, or other Word font, as opposed to the old Wordperfect fonts.

I am running Windows Vista with Word 2007. Can anyone tell me how to copy an icon image from a convenient location (the desktop, an WE tree display of a directory, etc.) as a picture (or not, what ever works) into a Word document? I have tried copying it through the clipboard but all that gets transferred is the text underneath the image.

The problem occurred without warning after many previous instances of trouble-free copying of Notepad text into MS Word 2010. Here?s an example of what happens:-1. I type a sentence into Notepad.2. I then attempt to copy and paste it into an open MS Word file.3. The cursor in the resulting MS Word file stops blinking on completion of the ?paste? process. A few seconds later, MS Word indicates ?not responding?.4. I press CTRL + ALT + DEL to open the Task Manager.5. On doing this and clicking on the MS Word document in the Task Manager and selecting ?End Task?, a message box stating ? WINWORDC.EXE is not responding?, with 3 option buttons, pops up. One of the 3 option buttons is ?Close program?.6. When I click on ?Close program?, another message box pops up saying ?WINWORDC is trying to recover your information?. Then, a few seconds later, the MS Word document closes (but without saving the text copied from the Notepad file).

You could try the repair option to Microsoft Office 2010. To access it, go to control panel/program and features. Right click on Microsoft Office and select "change". Select "Repair" then continue. Good luck!

G'day,
When I download save or display a word document which is locked some of the fonts change and this makes the documant look bad and as a result it is not paged correctly.
I am using Windows 7 and MS Office Home & Business 2010.
If I use a different computer which is XP and 2003 the document displays correctly, if I copy this to the Windows 7 PC the document font is changed.
The lock document is a form which has been locked for easy completion.

Any assistance would be appreciated.

Hi,

I am developing an add-in for outlook that consists of creating a customized send button next to the standard one. when outlook is configured to use the word editor, when I add the customized send button to the command bar of the mail in edit mode, the add-in is also added in word document. The reason is that the word editor is activated in outlook. How can I tell my add-in not to add the button in word as well. I don't want to deactivate the editor word. There must be a way how to detect the opened application. I searched for my problem on the internet and people said to test if the kind of the document is word mail or word document. Here's part of my code that didn't work correctly:


//event triggered when item is opened

{

//some code to test if it is a maiitem, etc.



Word.Document document = (Word.Document)i.WordEditor;





if (document.Kind.ToString() == "wdDocumentEmail")

addsendbutton();

}

The problem is that the button is still showing at word level. Visual studio is not launching the condition on all the windows. So he?s adding it in word as well, although word document is a wdDocumentLetter.



I have 2 options in mind:



1- The code must not be called at new inspector level. Because this trigger is not launched in the case of the word document

2- The inspector from which we get the word editor is not the right one for word document (Word.Document ... Read more

Answer:Word 2016 is not using the up to date word document

Hi Hollyoaks777

Just so I have it straight, when you say "opening up a brand new document" do you mean you have a blank document that you open, say on your desktop (as a shortcut), or does this happen when you click File then New.

Have you checked Options => Save to see if there is an option box to control this behavior?

Hello all,

On the 12th October I was editing a Word 2007 document on my Vista Home laptop. Throughout editing I pressed Ctrl S to save the doc over the previous version. I copied data in from several other files.
I went back yesterday to edit the document again and it has disappeared. The only version of the doc is a previous version dated 21st Sept.
I searched on all files modified after 11th Oct just in case I had saved it under another name. Not in there. The files I copied data from did come up in the search results though, soi knwo the search function is working.
I checked the default Autosave location - not in there.
I checked the recycle bin - the doc is not in there and neither are any ~ files or autosaved files. I haven't emptied my recycle bin for months.
I cannot find a word doc modified afetr the 11th October.

Can it really just have disappeared? It is my MBA dissertation paper and I worked on this edit for an awful lot of hours.

Many thanks.

I have made a brochure (containing a table)in MS Word97 in *.doc format. The brochure needed to be transferred to my mother-in-law's PC for printing as we don't have a printer. Anticipating compatibility issues (we use MS Office on a system running Win98SE; she uses MS Works on a system running WinXP), I made one page and opened it on her PC. The PC read and printed my test document and I assumed it would work. I then spent the day making the brochure, FTPing and downloading it to her PC. Now when I go to open the documents, Works says that it can't read them (I tried various options - double-clicking to open; selecting different *.doc file extensions from the drop down menu etc). I downloaded the Word97 viewer from Microsoft and it, too, claims not to be able to read the documents. Is there anything I can do to make her PC recognise these documents?And why can't different Microsoft word processors read each other's file formats??? Arrrrrgh!Please help!Jill

Answer:Word viewer will not read Word document

Any version of Microsoft Word should be able to read a document from the same or an earlier version of Word. As long as you have saved the document as Word Document (*.doc). Opening the document from within Word is the safest way.

I have a client with a problem creating new documents from the File > New > Word Document dropdown from Windows Explorer window. If I set her default font to Times New Roman it will stay for creating new documents from within Word. If she goes the other route mentioned above to create a new document it will always default to Courier. Also when she tries to save the document with the Save As item it defaults to txt instead of a .doc file. I am thinking there are two different templates for these two seperate ways of opening or creating a document.

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.

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.

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.

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 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 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.

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!

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".

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.

URGENT!! (Isn't it always?) I need to convert a multiple tab excel document to a word document. I read that I can save as a pdf, then convert to word but I have only Adobe Reader. If this can be done, is there a way to conserve the original format and the links in the excel doc?I would prefer leaving in excel but the customer needs a word document. Also, just in case I can convince to leave in excel -- is there a way to print the excel file as one document without printing each tab separately? If so, how do I ensure the formatting looks good to print as a regular 8.5 x 11 document?Thanks for any help.

Answer:Transfering from Word to Excel

To AmyMill:
If you wish to move tabular data from Word to Excel. If the columns in the Word document are in a table, click in the table, choose Table | Select | Table from the menu, press Ctrl+C to copy to the clipboard, switch to Excel, and press Ctrl+V to paste it in. If items in the columns are separated by single tabs, again you can simply copy the lines representing the table to the clipboard and paste them into Excel.
If the columns in the Word document are aligned using spaces, a bit more effort is required. Highlight the columnar data in Word and copy it to the clipboard. Click in cell A1 of a blank worksheet in Excel and paste the data—you'll find that it all winds up in column A. With the data still selected, choose Text to Columns from the Data menu. On the first page, select Delimited and click on Next. On the second page, check only Space in the set of available delimiters. Make sure the Treat consecutive delimiters as one box is checked. Click on the Finish button and you're done. Hope this helps, Flixx.

Please help! I have a word document I am quite certain was saved to my desktop, only now I am unable to locate the file. I have visited recent documents in Word, it sees the document, but when I click to open the file, a pop-up appears that says the path does not exist.

I have performed a search for the file on my computer (searching all drives and files). I find the document, but again, it says the path does not exist. When I search for it this way, it shows that it is a shortcut on my computer and suggests it may have been moved. However, the search does not find it anywhere else.

I have also searched in the hidden files and folders but the document I need is not there either.

Can someone please help with other ideas of where I can try to locate the document?

Thank you for helping this girl in distress!

Answer:Word Document is MIA

The best search tool I know of is Everything. It's free from voidtools.com. It's fantastic. Keep it around.

It will quickly index your drive. You then enter at least a portion of the file name into the search box and it should find it just about as fast as you can type the name.

There's always a chance you deleted it or the file became corrupt for unknown reasons.

The "recent documents" list won't help if you moved it away from that location on purpose or accidentally, but you knew that.

Answer:Does Anyone Know How To Fix This Word Document?

Does this problem only affect this one document or all Word docs? Have you tried opening the document on another PC that has MS Office Installed? Have you tried using a different Word processing program? Have you tried to start Word in SafeMode?

If you don't have access to another PC with MS Office installed you can try to download a different word processing program such as OpenOffice to see if it will open the Doc. You can also try opening the document using Notepad (right click and select "Open With" and select Notepad)

To Open Word in SAFE MODE

1. Select Run from the Windows Start menu

2. Type winword.exe /a (you must insert the space before the /a
(You may also need to type the full file path of Windword.exe))

3. Click OK

Regards,

Answer:Help with word document!

Retrieve in it word, then watch the box at the bottom of the screen as you file or save it as a .doc file, then review the ?xml info.

The Document Object Model (DOM) class is an in-memory representation of an XML document. The DOM allows you to programmatically read, manipulate, and modify an XML document. The XmlReader class also reads XML, however it provides non-cached, forward-only, read-only access. This means that there are no capabilities to edit the values of an attribute or content of an element, or the ability to insert and remove nodes with the XmlReader. Editing is the primary function of the DOM. It is the common and structured way that XML data is represented in memory, although the actual XML data is stored in a linear fashion when in a file or coming in from another object.
There is plenty of useful information on xml documents and file structure in the Microsoft knowledge base, or even with a Google search.

Answer:Solved: Word Perfect- Word 2003 - word 2007

If you saved the file in the "new" Word 2007 format (with a file extension of .docx) then you will be unable to open it in the other applications.

For Word 2003 you can install a converter, but I know of no XLM converter for WordPerfect.

When using Word 2007 you need to "save as" Word 97-2003 format to retain backwards compatibility.

When I try to open a Word document, there are 2 messages which display in succession, and then repeat:
"The language DLL 'VBE6INTL.DLL' could not be found."
"The Visual Basic environment could not be initialized."
Each time, I have sent the error report to MS.

After a few tries, it offers to open Word in safe mode. From there I can modify my document as I intended, but I cannot open a document without going through this.

Can you tell me how to correct this?
 

Answer:Word document won't open

Not sure but next time you open I would "Select All" > Copy and create a new document and paste, save this new copy with a slightly different file name, eg. xxxx1.doc. Often copy and resaving a doc can salvage them to a more "fuctioning
state".

WARNING IF YOU HAVE EXCESSIVE EMBEDDED EDITTING FEATURES WITHIN DOC MAY BE LOST, eg table links, hyperlinks, pictures,etc.

From personal experience, embedded editing can cause doc file size to blow out but also increase likelihood of corruption occuring. If there are many tables, graphs, pictures often best to save them in a sperate doc (if many of these then several seperate files) and call them appendices.

Answer:why is my Word document mis-numbering the pag

You probably have a section break after Page 2. Show non-printing characters to check.

Having been updating my autotext entries in Word, Office XP I must have inadvertantly pressed someting wrong because now when I open Word it presents a new document but instead of being blank it has text in it. It is called new document. I cannot find any info anywhere in help etc on how to control the opening doc. Any help would be most welcome.Cheers,

Answer:Word starts in a document

.It would appear tht you have saved a document as your NORMAL.DOT file.If you shut down Word and search for the NORMAL.DOT file and rename any entries as say NORMAL.OLD and then restart Word it will build a new NORMAL.DOT file.Any customisation e.g. autotext entries will probably be lost and have to be re-entered.Peter.

When opening MS Word 2003, the program opens to a blank gray screen. Not the same as if no document were open.
I can view the document if I go into "Print Preview" or "Full Screen" modes. This happened all of a sudden after closing out of full screen mode.

I tried reinstalling. No luck. This only happens on my main user profile. When I switch users, the program works fine.
Any ideas.

Chris
 

Answer:Cannot see my Word 2003 document

Try renaming the normal.dot file in your profile.

MS WORD 2000 under Windows XP.Is there a way to have an existing document open at the bottom or end of the document rather than at the top or beginning?I have a very long document that I continue to add to and each time I open it I have to page down to the end. I am aware that I can execute a "GO TO A PAGE NUMBER" but I would have to remember from one session to the next how many pages there are in the document. Sometimes there are days when I don't work on the document so I don't always remember how many pages I have.

Answer:How to open Word Document at the end.

I don't know about a preset for this, but if you press the End key while holding down the Ctrl key, that will do the trick.

I was wondering if anyone knew how to insert a pdf document into word without it just being a link to a file on my computer or without using.. 'embed as icon'. For example.   I want to have the filename in my document like so: blah blah blah  filename.pdf blah blah.  And if I click on filename.pdf within the word document it will open up the pdf.  I know how to do this as a simple hyperlink, but then i can only open the pdf on my computer. I need to email this word document and have other people be able to click on it and open the pdf too. any ideas on how this works?

Answer:inserting PDF into a word document

I don't think that is possible. PDF is a proprietary format that Word can't even open so I don't really see it doing anything else with a PDF file. And honestly in my mind it would be a huge security risk if Word could open some arbitrary file simply by opening a word document. But then again Microsoft have had their share of huge security mistakes so maybe you can do it.But if it was me I would simply attach both of the files to the email and be done with it.

I'm in need of desperate help. I've been working on a document all week and my last saved revision of the document was last night. I opened up the document up this morning and all my content was there.

However when I went back to open it just now the document I was met with a document not found message. I go into the folder and find the document there and open however it's from a previous revision. The date modified shows it was from two days when in fact I last modified it last night.

I go back into to word to check where the file was located that I tried open when I got file not found message and it was in the temp downloads of opera. This cannot be as I've never downloaded this document through email or the web, I've been working on it strictly through MS Word on my computer. It seems the document rolled back to a previous revision. I don't know what to do and don't have time rewrite and complete the entire document as I'm on a deadline.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

When closing an important word document (what was once 47 pages is now only 39) i accidently clicked the 'no' option on doy uowant to save?when i did that, apparently word also deleted all the backup copies of my file as well. For some stupid reason i hadnt saved since three oclock. How do i get back a version of my file autosaved (it does it after every ten minutes and creates a file, and its now deleted the file, so presumably i must be able to get it back somehow) as recently as possible?And also, why didn't microsoft plan for this? why make it so that if you ACCIDENTALLY click the worng option, it destroys all your work completely, instead of keeping the auto-saved file until it's sure you didnt want it? What kind of morons do they employ??i am very much upset by this. ive been crying. Please help urgently! it had to be finished for tomorrow!! i cant write it all again! There were diagrams!! HELP!!

Answer:word document recovery

Sorry. No sympathy. You "accidentally" clicked "no". What you seem to be asking is "Why don't Microsoft write software that reads your mind and does what you really meant to do instead of what you actually told it to do?"QuoteAnd also, why didn't microsoft plan for this? why make it so that if you ACCIDENTALLY click the worng option, it destroys all your work completely, instead of keeping the auto-saved file until it's sure you didnt want it? What kind of morons do they employ??When Word asks if you want to save the file, it is asking if you really want it. I don't think the morons are at Microsoft...I suppose they could have a "blonde" setting where the save dialog asks, "Are you sure", and "Are you really sure?", and "Are your really really sure?" etc but then you'd still get ditzoids saying "I accidentally clicked "no" six times! Those morons at Microsoft!"Quotei am very much upset by this. ive been crying.Makes a change from "HELP PLZZZ!"
