XML document won't save as notepad document?

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

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

Hi, I am sorry if this is a very frivolous request. But it is more for convenience why I am asking this as it does get somewhat annoying.

But when I chose "save as" for a notepad .txt document I have been writing all the time the option automatically comes up as

*.txt

I then have to type in the name of the document I wish to save it as. However what I was wondering, or more hoping, if there are actually any tweaks or registry changes I can make so when I click 'save as' in notepad. The notepad 'save as' screen automatically pops up and assigns the first line of text inside the .txt file I have just typed as the possible name of the document to save.

This is similar to how Microsoft Office uses the 'save as' option, and for time saving and convenience I was hoping someone may know if there was possibly a way to set Notepad to do this automatically too.

Thanks
Anthony

Hi Anthony1uk,
Unfortunately such a thing wouldn't be possible without a rewrite of the Notepad application itself.

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.

I'm trying to create a new *.htm document using Notepad, which I should then be able to view in Internet Explorer by double clicking the *.htm file.

PROBLEM:
I can't create a new file with an .htm extension. I only have the option of creating a .txt file in NotePad. (I'm presuming) that since my file doesn't have the .htm extension, when I double click it I can't view it in Internet Explorer.

At first I thought it was only my printer......uninstalled the drivers, reinstalled.......etc. Then I tried to print as an XPS document and I get the same error messages. Example error message from Excel is "Your file could not be printed due to an error on Microsoft XPS Document writer". If I try the printer I get the exact same message. From Firefox I get "An unknown error occurred while printing." I have searched everywhere for a solution, I even restored as far back as I could but that was only a month ago. I can print from Notepad and Internet Exporer, both on the printer and XPS Document writer, I can also print a test page and an alignment page. Any ideas?

Solutions tried so far......

Malware scan, troubleshooter, reinstall of MS Office 2010, printer port checks, uninstall and reinstall of USB printer.

I have around 50-60 folders that all contain notepad documents with text inside of them. Lets say one of the folders contains a notepad document with the text "popcorn". How might I find that particular folder or notepad document (either one. doesn't matter) that contains "popcorn" withjout manually going through every folder/document to find the one with "popcorn"?

This should help you understand if the above wasn't understandable:

Each folder goes like this:
10-12-13 (the date the folder was created)>10-12-13 Pictures (sub folder) and the notepad document. To clarify, the main folder 10-12-13 contains a sub folder and the notepad document. Now we are back to "popcorn". Say i want to find a folder/notepad document with the text "popcorn" in it. How would i do that without manually going through every folder and notepad document?

Answer:How to search for text in a notepad document (please read)

Hi, welcome to the Seven Forums.

Here's how:Let's say you have the main folder named 2013, containing subfolders for each month (JAN through DEC), and these subfolders in their turn subfolders for each day
Open Windows Explorer showing the content of the main folder 2013
Windows Search includes now the folder 2013 and all its subfolders (Search always searches the folder open in Explorer and everything underneath it)
Type your search term to Search (top right), telling the Search it should search for file content:
Code:
content:popcorn

The search filter content:search term tells the Search to search the content of all files in all files in current folder and all its subfolders

There was a large document I was working on just about an hour ago. I had saved it, and I reset my computer shortly after because I wasn't able to connect to the internet. When I got back on and reopened it, the document was one massive line of squares. I found a variety of conflicting solutions online, though a common problem seems to be people saving their documents onto removable storage. It was just on my internal hard drive.

I tried changing fonts and I even tried pasting it into text forms online and even opening it on another computer, and it's still just one huge mass of squares.

Save to Google Drive allows you to save any web content directly to your Google Drive through the context menu of the browser.

In the settings you can choose where the contents get saved, I recommend navigating to your Google Drive and creating a new folder for all Saves with this extension which makes it easier to organise later. Or you can change the location from the dialog that appears once complete.

You can save all types of contents including;
- documents (pdf / docx)
- images
- webpages including HTML5 audio and video (html / webp / webm)
- audio and video (mp3 / mp4)
- archives
- software (exe / msi)
and much more!

Simply right-click over the image or link contents and Save to Google Drive.

As seen below, Save Link to Google Drive will save the executable to the cloud.


No downloading or re-uploading required to Google Drive.

This extension has been available for many years, it's not new, but most may overlook it's abilities.

Answer:When printing from a notepad document it always shows page # at the bottom

Easy...   With notepad open...File ---> Page Setup... ---> Make Header and Footer Fields blank and select OK ( *Note you didnt want page#, but I am assuming you might not want the header info on there too to have a clean print. If you want the header then just blank out the Footer to remove the instruction to add page number. )Now you will have a clean print without header name and page number at bottom.

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.

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.

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 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

I'm using XP Home SP2 and Word 2002 (screen says "Microsoft Office XP" when it opens, hope that makes sense!)

Something is all backwards in prompting me to Save Changes. First of all, I usually never see the prompt.
I opened some documents - only to read them. I did not change anything at all. When I closed, some of the docs (but not all of them), there was a box asking if I wanted to Save The Changes I made to This Document? I said No because I didn't make any changes. I want it to stop doing this. Also, it only asked that for some of the docs. For other docs (also unchanged), it didn't ask.

I've never seen this box before, usually even if I've made a million changes, I'm never prompted to save the changes or not.

I would like to have this confirmation box come up when I DO make changes! Very handy! But not have it come up when I don't make changes. Very annoying!
It seems to be all backwards, asking to keep changes when I don't make any, but never asking to keep changes when I DO make them! So basically I want things the other way around.
Is it possible?

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

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

Answer:Cannot find the saved revised document in Word document

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

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 "Normal Word Document"
then save the Word document.

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

Each time I want to save this specific file after a modification, I got an error message and MS Word shuts down. I tried to copy/paste the text in a new document but it doesn't help.
What happened is that I first wordprocessed a part of this document with Trados (translation managing software) and thought the problem was due to this but even when copying the "trados-free" part of the doc and pasting in a new one I still can't save it: Word closes without saving.

any help would be greatly appreciated

I want to be able to save the documents I've written in Word directly to a pdf, in much the same way as OpenOffice.org allows you to do.

Software such as Distiller($5000) and Acrobat($300) are out of the question due to their steep price tags. Are there any good, free (read: no ads or spyware) programs which will allow me to save a Word document directly as a pdf? Are there any reasonably priced programs which can do this?
 

Answer:Save a document as a pdf from Word

Sort of an odd question since you answered it yourself. OpenOffice.org is most likely the best one for the job if price matter since it's free. staroffice could also do it mind you.

I'm sure there are most likely some other ones out there but they'd most likely have even more conversion issues then OpenOffice.org so I wouldn't recommend using them.

I have Windows7, Word 2010. When I complete a document in Word, I want to save it in a particular folder which I created on my Desktop in order to keep my work organized. How do I do that? Thank you.
 

Answer:Save document in different folders

Select the office button and then go down to SAVE AS and highlight it so the menu opens up. Select the file type you want and then you should see another window open up named Save As.

From there select Desktop and then the folder you wish to save your file in.
If you need to you can select on the right side of the menu the folder with a star on it to create a new folder on the Desktop. Double click it and hit save and you have saved the file in the new folder you have just created.

Good Luck.

Answer:when I save an MS word document it disappears

I'd like to clarify a few things.

When you "save the document", are you transferring it from a flash drive to the My Documents folder on the main drive?

OR

Have you opened the document and then saving it to "My Documents" on the main drive?

OR

Is the "My Documents" folder one a folder on the "Kingston stick"?

Or are you doing something else?

Hi Folks
I have Microsoft Office 2007 on my laptop. Also there is a trial version of Office 2010 which I dont want to use. I've just created a flyer in Publisher 2007 and want to save it in the format of Publisher 2007. There doesn't appear to be an option to do this. I just get "Publisher" or "Publisher 2000". When I save as publisher and double click to open it, it asks me to activate Office 2010 or go online and buy it.
Luckily I was able to open the document by opening Publisher first and doing it from there. Is there a way around this? With Word docs you can chose save as Office 2007.

My boss has a special network folder mapped only to his PC. He keeps a lot of xls and doc files that are for his eyes only. One of the xls files refuses to save, the error message states that the "file is currently in use". No one else has it open, or even has access to it's saved location.

He can still save a copy with "Save As.." but he can't even manually delete the original file afterwards.

I'm thinking it might be a hung process, but I wanted to see if someone here has a solution/explanation. I'm going over to mess with it now, and will check back later to update.

I'm hoping someone might be able to point me in the right direction with what appears to be a problem with Word.

I have a Lotus Notes application that stores a lot of information, and part of that is output to a word document for printing. A user opens a document in Lotus Notes, presses a button and a Word document is created with the relevant information in it. It does this by getting Notes to launch a Word template file with the layout how we want it, and passing an XML file with all the required values from Notes so that a VBA function in the Word template can read this information in. It's quite a convoluted way of doing things I'll agree, but I am just working with a a system that was developed a long time ago and in most cases it works well.

When the user is done making any changes to the Word document, there is a macro button in Word that they press to mark the document complete. This makes the document readonly, sets a few custom properties and then saves the document.

In most cases, if you were to run through the process, everything works fine. Sometimes however, a small number of users are finding that their work isn't saved. If for example they launch a new word document, make changes and then close word, then go back to that document and make more changes before pressing the Complete button in Word, they find that the next time they go to the document it's in the state before their most recent changes, which are lost.

G'dayI'm designing a site and I want viewers to be able to download my PowerPoint presentations.How do I set up the link to open the "Save" window rather that just opening the presentation in the main frame?I'm using DreamWeaver 4ThanksBen

Answer:"Download" / "Save" document links

for the presentations and put them in it.Create individual hyperlinks to the files, and when a user clicks on one of them their browser should open the 'Save' dialogue. Powerpoint presentations can't be viewed unless the user's computer either has PowerPoint installed, or has the (free) PowerPoint viewer, so you might consider placing a link to the appropriate download page on the Microsoft site.

Hi, I think many has this problem as I found it in other forums without clear response. Sometimes my Internet Explorer 9 does not like Adobe Reader 9. So I open a document pdf which has no security issue, and I just click on the save a copy icon. The icon responds with a virtual click. And that's it. Does not appear the radiobox where I can chose where and how to save. Nothing happens. And I can't find the downloaded pdf in any temporary folders either (I can index system folders and do a search there). So I have to go to another computer where I do the same in Firefox and it works, I can save the pdf file. But this is not OK that I have to use someone else's computer. I just wonder why these intelligent guys who create IE and AR can not make something that works? And since years this problem has been existing. Any idea how to patch it? Cheers and happy new year !

Answer:Save a copy of a PDF document open in IE9 does not do anything

In IE9, enable the classic menu-bar which is disabled by default.

Now when you open a PDF in IE9 via the Adobe Reader plugin, just click File >> Save as. It will save it as a PDF file with a default filename.

Ho do i save a scanned document from my printer into "my documents?"

Answer:save document from my printer's scanner

After you scan the document or whatever you're scanning, you will see the image on your screen. Look for an option to save the picture. When you click save or save as, you will be given an option to name the file and save it in different formats. if you click the little down arrow next to the file type, you will see the options. Jpeg is a very common picture file extension. Then look at the drop down menu that will show you what drives and folders are on your machine. Choose My Documents and click save.

Answer:How to save several pages under one document icon

If you've scanned them they'll be images, which are necessarily one file per image, which means one file per page. What you'll have to do is build them into some other document--for example a Microsoft Word file or a PDF file. That way you open the document (with Word, Adobe Reader, etc) and get the pages one after another in the order you set up. After you've made the document you can delete the original scans.

No problem this is an easy one.

Go to search type in back up and restore Pick a date prior to your problem. And then like magic, everything is back the way it was when life was good. This will affect all your personal documents, but not system settings.

but first try this one. Go to search pick a phrase that is in your document and it should appear.

Answer:Word/Excel document cannot save to server

It sounds like a permissions problem as though you have access to open the file, but not modify or save it.

Is this on your work network or a home network?

Do you know how to use permissions and folder/file security?

I have a workbook that has 30 worksheets inside it. I need to be able to save each worksheet as an excel file with the tab name being the file name. I have been able to save them to PDF files but I can't seem to get it to work for the excel side. Thanks

I have a home network with a couple of PCs. My desktop is currently on W10 build 10586, while my laptop (which this is about) obviously just got updated to 14393.
Previously I could open a document stored on the laptop from the desktop, edit it and save it back.
Now suddenly I can only open the document in Read-only mode, and I can not save it back to the laptop. I get a message 'You don't have permission to save in this location. Contact the administrator'.

Answer:Can't save document to PC on network after W10 upgrade to 14393

Normally the simplest way to sort this is make sure on the pc you contacting has the same username and password as the pc your logged in to as by default it passes that when connecting make sure you saving to a common folder if its in someone profile it wont let you even on the pc

Over this past one year I have noticed more and more frequent BSOD crashes so I started paying close attention to what I was doing. Since then 100 percent of the BSOD occurred almost immediately after trying to save (via clicking the save icon, ^s (shortcut), or even save as). I found the probability of BSOD decreases a lot when you are doing a save a new filename. In fact I can't recall a single time where saving to a new file caused a problem. Overwriting an existing file seems to trigger it. The driver causing the BSOD is NTFS.sys. Note, it doesn't happen on each and every save, the average is like 1 of 7. My work-around has been to avoid saving early and often (which is a serious problem with Microsoft Office which isn't the most stable application around) and when I do save make sure it is via save-as and to a new filename. Just tack on a number or letter prefix. I mostly use Word ands Excel and have noted they both have this problem. Other applications may not have this issue, but then I don't overwrite too many files so that may be the reason for the lack of BSOD.

It's hard to say when it started. I allow Microsoft to update my PC as updates become available. I was never a fan of Microsoft roulette having been burned, but a couple friends insisted Microsoft cleaned up their act so I gave it another try. On the up side some of their updates did correct a couple minor issues. I believe one (or more) of their updates is responsible for this issue. Likewise I was hoping ... Read more

Hi,

A friend of mine has MS Word 2003 and though it always used to work, a couple of days ago, it simply began to refuse to save anything. She is typing something for school, and when she tried to save the document, the "save" dialog box disappears for a second, then pops back up.......nothing else can work, of course, so long as that box is there........she tries repeatedly to save it, but it will disappear and reappear immediately each time. The only way she can do anything is to remove the name in the "name" area and then just click on the "x" at the top right of the dialog box. At that point, everything she's typed disappears and the MS Word page is blank again.

I've never heard of such a thing, but I'm not real familiar with the Office products. Does anyone have any idea what is going on and how to fix this?
 

Answer:Solved: MS Word 2003 won't save document

Have her run a "Detect and Repair", from the Help menu.
