How to convert a Word Document to a Works Document

Question: How to convert a Word Document to a Works Document

I have enrolled in college after 35 years away. My professor is posting all documents in Word form. I have Works. Can I convert them to open into Works? Can anybody walk me through it step by step? I have Word installed, but haven't "bought" the program (free trial that came on computer). When I try to save the word document and change the save as, I don't get any options except Microsoft Word 97 and All Files.

Anyone know if one can take a PDF document, such as this example and turn it into a MS Word document. I realize this can be done the opposite way, by converting a Word document into a PDF and making it fillable PDF, but is it possible to "undo" a fillable form once it is created?

Reason this is needed is because I have program that uses MS word templates...many government forms are in fillable PDF. It is extremely labor intensive to manually type everything in, and it would be nice to leverage the application by letting it fill in these fields automatically from a Word template.

I could type out and create my own Word template, but I'd really like to streamline this as much as possible since manually creating some of these documents would be pretty brutal; adding database fields is way easier than typing up a full document.

*I do not own a copy of Adobe Writer/Pro, but I'm also not opposed to purchasing software that can accomplish this (within reason).

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

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

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

This is just one of those odd quirks I have run into. When I open a new document in Word, then open an older file, the new document closes and only the old one is displayed.Using Microsoft Office 2010, specifically Word.Windows 7 64-bitA bit of explanation, I often do research/writing for school or for fun. This issue has always happened, just one of those small annoyances.Here is the exact thing that is happening:1. I open a new (blank) word document, by clicking on the Word icon or by selecting "Open New Document" in the Word program.2. I open an older (saved) Word document, by clicking on the saved file, not by using the "Open" function in Word.3. The New (empty) document disappears, only the older document is open.

I 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 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

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.

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?

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.

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.

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.

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.

Hi,

I am not sure if this is possible in word, but say I have document A. I place document A within document x, document y, and document z. Is it possible to make changes to document A and have the changes updated automatically to documents x, y, and z?
I hope this makes sense.

Thanks
 

Answer:Word Document within another document

The only simple way is to go to Insert, Object, Create from file and choose to insert your file as a link (these are 2003 instructions - would be similar in 2007, though.) However, you will then get a questions about the file having links and do you want to update...every time you open the file.
You could also just insert some text and hyperlink it to the other file.
Finally, someone could probably write some VBA that would insert the file and update it every time you opened it.

Does anyone know a way of converting a A4 word document to A3 Landscape. I am using Office 2003.

Answer:convert A4 document to A3

I suspect that Word will only allow you to do it if the Printer supports A3 paper, otherwise the margins won't go beyond the paper size in the Printer settings. You can set the document's Page Setup to use A3 (if necessary using Custom Size of 297mm x 420mm) and setting it to Landscape, but to complete the task you may have to install a printer driver for an A3 printer. If you have an A3 printer, I'm not sure why the document doesn't format properly as A3

My aged P (well into his mid-80's) has just been on the phone seeking help from me over a mini-problem he has in laying out some text in MS Works whilst writing a film script. As a Word user, I'm not that sure on what he has/hasn't got in Works.What he needs to be able to do is type some lines using the full width of the page (instructions to the actor). Then, the actor's lines are written indented both sides. No problems so far for him.But, when he wants to go back to full width text, he has to go through undoing the indents again.Now, if I was doing this in Word, I'd have no hassle; it would all be done using 'Styles' available from the formatting toolbar.However, not having Works available in my setup, I can't make a comparison.Is there an equivalent way of setting out styles in Works? Is there an easy way of laying out the document with easy 'switches' between indent both sides and full width?TIACtA

When I save my document on a GB thumb drive the number of written pages change. Is this supposed to happen?

Answer:Does Microsoft Works make changes in document when it is sav

Word looks at the default printer installed and makes formatting changes to suit the printer. So if you create a document on one computer with a printer that can go to within a quarter of an inch from the edge of the paper margins, then you open the document on a different computer with a printer that can only print from withing half an inch from the edge of the paper margins, Word will correct the margins. This would obviously result in narrowing the margins and causing more pages in the document. This is just one example of how the format could change but you get the idea.

As my attention was suddenly diverted while working on the Microsoft Works Word Processor that came loaded on my Windows XP computer , I mistakenly clicked NO when asked if I wanted to save the changes that I made to a document before closing it. After closing, I instantly realized that I badly needed to save the changes but when I reopened it, all the changes were gone. Is there anything I can do at all to find it? I tried a system restore but the closest automatic restore time was for 20 hours earlier which was well before I made the changes. Can I do a custom time restore, do I have any options at all? Thanks for your help.

Unless you had saved the changes made, there is not a way to bring back the unsaved changes. Backups and custom time restores will only give you the saved changes that were present at that time.

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.

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.

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.
