Whenever I send and receive emails that have ?word? documents attached, the documents often get corrupted in transmission. This shows itself as spaces between words disappearing. Only a few each time. For example a recent 20 000 + word document I?ve been working on, had about 30 ? 40 spaces lost. Any ideas what the issue could be?

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

private void Inspectors_NewInspector(Outlook.Inspector i)

{

//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

My sister called me today and she was working on a big paper and didnt save it and her computer rebooted at some point during the night, is there any way to recover the document? the papers due tommorrow i would really apppriciate the help
 

Answer:Lost word document

If, under Tools -> Options -> Save she had "Always create backup copy" checked, there would be a file appended ".bak" or ".wbk" that contained her most recent save of the doc. Alternately, under the same tab is the option to "Save Auto Recovery info every XX minutes". You can search manually for Auto Recovery files, which have the extension ".asd". Failing those, you can search for Temp files with the extension".tmp" or that begin with a tilde "~*.*", looking for files dated the last time the document was edited. You can use Word to try to extract text from any file by clicking on File -> Open and changing the filetype to All files (*.*).

Answer:Lost Word Document

Had you saved the document at all whilst you were creating it because it is there somewhere. The .tmp file is created by Word to record the changes made to a document when you open (or create) it and the next file save of that document. Tell me the name of the .tmp file.

Question: Lost Word Document

My sister was doing her coursework, and saving at roughly 15 minute intervals. She went out, and when she came back the PC was off. she turned it on and opened the file, and it was if she had simply stopped savingabout "11:22am" (i looked in the properties), although she had been working well past 1pm. As a result she has lost a fair amount of work.
She told me she was mostly saving onto my USB Storage Device - although she had saved more than is there onto the hard drive aswel.

Any suggestions? I looked at the possibiliy of the "windows restore to a previous time" but thats only an option for 8am.

Thanks!

Answer:Lost Word Document

Look for any temp files created in that timeframe. If word crashed (or the computer shut down without Word closing, the temporary file should be there.

System restore could not help anyway, it does not restore user created data only Windows Syetem files (hence the System in the name). Many seem unaware of this.

Ok, so here is the situation. I was working on a script tonight that I opened up as an attachment from an email. As I finished it up, I clicked save, or at least I though I did. Then I went ahead and closed Microsoft Word. There was no dialog box prompting me to save changes or anything, it just closed. Now, I cannot find the file whatsoever. I have searched under recent documents, temporary internet files, and I searched for .tmp files and .asd files as well. I did find one .tmp file that was created around the same time that I lost my document.

I have no idea how this happened, or even if this is what happened. Anyway, I worked the whole day on a word document without saving, at least that is what should have happened because now all my work is just gone.

Hi there folks,

A friend of mine was completing a twenty page Word document for his science class, saved the document and closed out of Word. Later on he was working on a similarly named document, and after he was finished working on the new file, he somehow opened the save dialog and replaced the twenty page finals paper with a similar name!

Is there a program that can restore the previous version or some type of tweak that is available for recovering the older file? As you can imagine, he's at wits end trying to figure out how to restore his composition, if there is any suggestions you can offer towards resurrecting the file, he would be very appreciative.

He's currently using an HP laptop with Windows ME. I'm going to call him back right away and see if there is any more info he can release about the Office version etc., anything that you might find helpful, as outlined in the "Read Me First" sticky.

I know my first post in this forum might seem like I'm leeching information, but this friend of mine is at wits end! I'll try and see if there is some easy questions that I can answer in the mean time, just in case anyone knows how to tackle this toughy.

P.S. He doesn't have any backup software on his pc (yet). I've been trying to get him to buy some for awhile, but it looks like he just might have to learn the hard way.

Then when I wanted to send her the paper back, I saved once more and closed the document, as it cannot be sent if it is open. I went to 'attachments' as usual and THE PAPER WAS NOT THERE in the documents list. I then dug around in the computer like mad to try to find it, to no avail. It HAS to be somewhere, right?

hi there - my father is working on a large word document in word 97 - he is not very computer literate and has not been backing up his files. He has somehow managed to delete virtually all of the text on around 160 pages, and this version of his document has been saved (he only has 2 characters on 1 page in total). I have gone into the versions option in the File menu, but there are no previous versions listed, I guess because he had not activated this function. Everything points toward the information being lost, except that if i look in the file's properties it seems that the file still appears to be about the right size (around 660kb). Does this mean that his text may still exist somewhere in the file, and may then be recoverable? (i would have thought with virtually no text the file should be much smaller). It also says that there have been 98 revisions of his documents. Is there any way to access an earlier revision, prior to him deleting all of this text?

I would appreciate any information or advice extremely, even if it is just to clarify that he has lost this file for good.
Thanks

I created a document but did not finish or save it. Instead, I left the document on-screen and went to sleep, allowing the machine to go into hibernation mode, as it always does.

When I went back to work on the document this morning, the letter was gone. I am probably using wrong terms here, but Word keeps an apparently ongoing backup copy of all open documents that are still open - this "ghost" document has a "?" as first character in file name, with the first word in that document as the title (if/when it has not been saved/named).

That "ghost" document is still here, but is not legible (only seemingly random characters scattered on the page), and ONLY that "ghost" is here. I have searched the whole machine, but cannot find the letter I was working on anywhere. This has happened before, but never with a document that mattered much. This time, I really want to retrieve that work. I am clear that this has something to do with the age of the Office xp (x32) installation on this newer x64 box.

Word has always been good at saving periodic backups, even of un-named documents, so this is confusing, at best... terribly frustrating at worst. I can't afford to upgrade the Office Suite now, but I do need a functional version of Word. Help?!?

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

Well, here is the problem, I appreciate that this may be specific to my works network etc. but just wondering if anyone had come across anything similar or had any ideas what may cause it?

I worked all day yesterday on a document I am producing, did regular saves throughout the day as I always do. It is a big file (52.5Mb) containing a lot of pictures, hence the size.

Finished work yesterday, saved again and shutdown the machine, same as normal.

When I came in this morning, started her up and opened the file, it had lost all the work I did yesterday with the file reverting back to as it was when I finished on Monday. No errors came up, did not ask to recover from a temp file or anything, it opened as normal apart from missing all the work I did yesterday.

It was saved on a networked drive, I.T. guys are a little stumped at the moment, they say there is no version controlled backups on that particular network, I have searched to ensure I didn't randomly save it anywhere else and I hadn't.

Any thoughts or ideas?

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 had a word document open (it wasn't saved). I was working on something for a few hours. Then I opened another word document (that I have had trouble opening in the past) and it completely closed the other, unsaved document that I had been working on.

I hadn't saved the 1st document so I can't search for it. And when I open the 2nd document (that closed the first) it tells me that the document caused a serious error the last time I opened it and asks me if I want to continue opening it.

Please help! I really need to recover this word document. Is there any way I can do it?

I have an End User using GMAIL to email a word document.

End User did the following:

Opened Gmail.
Opened Attached Word File
Worked on the word file in word for several hours.
Clicked "Save" every 10 minutes or so but did not click "Save As".
The End User then closed Word.

We are trying to find where Word would have saved that document.

Does anyone have an idea?

Thanks.

My operating system is Windows XP, Home Edition.

I was editing a very large document in Microsoft Word and somehow wasn't able to save it and it disappeared leaving in it's place a file called ~WRL3892TMP. I can't open it as it says file not found and clicking on properties tab shows that it's a hidden file. Since I'm unable to open this TMP file, there is no way I can change the file extension from tmp to doc (saw this suggested elsewhere).

I am the only person using this computer so if it's a permissions issue, what do I do? I don't understand "permissions" either. I just want my document back..

Please help!

Thanks in advance.
 

Answer:Solved: Lost Document in Microsoft Word - WRL TMP file instead

Do you have an earlier version of the document saved anywhere? Perhaps you could reconstruct it from that point. There may be a way to restore the document from that temp file, but I don't know what it is. Sorry!

I opened a word document from an email (attachment) and worked on it and hit "Save". I am unable to access all the work, and the "Search" is unable to find the document.
Can someone guide me how I can retrieve the file?

Answer:Word document saved in Outlook email

The easiest way to figure out where your document went is to open an email message that includes an attachment, open the attachment, then go to File--> Save As. The Save As default path is always the same for emails, and the reason the search doesn't find it is because it is hidden in a temporary internet file folder. (Something like C:\Documents and Settings\user\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\OLK) Chances are as soon as you click Save As, you will see the document sitting in the temp folder. Then instead of saving the dummy doc you opened, simply right click on the doc you want, and hit copy. Then paste it somewhere (like your desktop for easy access), and there it will stay! Hope this helps!!

I received a letter as an attachment via my ntl email account and opened the attachment which opens on word 2003. I could only see the date and my name on the document. A bit of exploring showed that the text of the letter was contained in a text box. I could not change the size of the text box or get to the text except by deleting the first part of the text to display the second bit. Using the menu option I could convert to frame and read text that way (a job rejection letter!)Anyway, I then forwarded the email to my yahoo email account, where the attachment was scanned and the document opened in all its glory, including the company logo and graphics.....So far I have checked that both documents are loading up the same version of word (same license number and version) and am stumped......I have norton installed on my PC so at the moment am debating if there is a problem with that when it is scanning the ntl delivered document (if it is) or maybe even if my outlook needs reinstalling.I can't blame ntl if the document forwards to yahoo ok.reopening the attachments for both sources several times and I get the same result so it isn't a one-off glitch.....Confused? Oh yes....

Answer:word document not opening properly from email

Word is opening the document differently from outlook. It opens it in report layout and I have to click on the actual page button to display the contents of the document. If I save the document and open it it opens up normally. very odd.

Answer:I cannot find a word document I opened as an email attachment

The file will be located in a folder somewhere in
C:\Users\(youraccount)\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet
Files\

"\AppData" is normally hidden
"\Temporary Internet Files" is normally a hidden protected Operating System
file

You'll have to remove the checkmark (if they're hidden) in Windows Explorer:
Organize - Folder & Search Options - View

Good luck in finding it, though.

The correct way is to save the attachment first, then open it
from the saved location, if you wish to edit it.

Hello all-
I have just gotten ms office 2003 on my computer - i am familiar with ms word, but i think this newer version did something annoying: i wanted to email a set of info from home to work email. i have these in text files. i uploaded these as attachments to an email. when i opened the email, ALL the text from the text files was IN the email, with NO text file attachments.

i also had ONE ms office document ".doc" attached, and it acted like it should: just attached to the email.

is this text file thing something that ms word 2003 does on purpose? i have never had this happen before with my web-based email acct.

how can i turn off this function?

I removed the SmitFraud trojan from a customer's computer, and she reported that when she composed an email, the word "crap" appeared in her email three times. Sometimes, she composes her emails using MS Word and copies and pastes to Outlook Express, and she could not remember if she used Word this time or composed the email in OE directly.I removed SmitFraud using SmitRem, SmitFraudFix, RogueRemover, and CCleaner. The first time I did this, she encountered some remaining spyware the next day (XP Antivirus?), so I did the same thing and then followed up with a Hijack This log. I removed an entry that referred to "BrowsingSoftware", and that took care of most of the problem. Then, a few days later, she encountered her "crap" problem.I then tried running RogueRemover again.

Answer:Can I tell where a Forwarded email was originally sent to?

Internet email was never conceived of as a secure means of communication. Anyone can change the contents of a message and forward it to someone else with no way of detecting the changes. The only way to verify the message was sent would be to examine the files in the senders computer or the logs maintained by the email provider. Of course you have to access to either.

Two things you might do:

1. You mentioned you already checked your "Recent Docs" list in Word, but also check your Recent Items list in the Vista Start menu. It may still be there. If it is, just do a Save As and save it to the location you need.

2. Do an Advanced Search of your entire computer. Press the Windows key with the F key.
That brings up the Search page - click the Advanced Search button to the far right to open the set up screen.
In the next screen check: the Include non-indexed, hidden, and system files option. Under Location, select Computer or Everywhere, and in the Name box, fill in the name of the file you?re looking for, or some text from within the file.

What I did wrong: I couldn't get the Word 2003 to install a clean normal.dot, so after trying to trick it into making a new clean template, I used the repair option on the menu inside Word.

It went through its thing, asked for the original disk to find a file and said it was complete. (Only weird thing was I asked for all defaults, not to save customization, but it did anyway.) Now my normal.dot is fine.

It also completely wiped out my email--all records, plane and motel reservations, doctor communications, calendar, contacts--the works. WHY? Since when did Word control Outlook?

I haven't exported for many months so I have no recent backup, but I know somewhere on the hard drive the files must exist. At least I hope they do. I used to teach Outlook--but 2003 is a puzzle to me.

How do I get all my data back? I am using HTTP email--MSN DSL and mail is taken off the web when it is delivered to me, so no backups there.

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 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 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

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

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!

Hello,
I used mail merger to create 25 letters to different locations and different people. The source used for the names and address's were from an excel file. I used "Edit Individual Documents" in order to get all the letters in one document. Now the problem is i need a backup of each letter on my computer and i have no clue if its even possible to save each page in the master document as a unique document. If not, is there a way of saving each unique document of a mail merger?
Thanks in advance.

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. Additionally, I know that the document could be sent from Windows Explorer by right-cli... Read more

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.

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.

OS is XP Pro
Word 97 SR-2B

Thanks!

I'm creating a document in word 2007 at one point of the document I want to insert a link or icon that points to a separate word document, when the master document is saved both documents are saved as one file so that i can distribute it to other people not linked on a LAN. I don't need the second document to be seen but launched on a separate window when the link or icon is clicked.
Can somebody please help I've seen this on emails and PP presentations but I'm not sure if it can be done in word, I would think so!

Thank

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).

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.

Go in word options/personalize and add the command "close"
The icon to close the current document will appear on the upper left tool bar.
