I have Office 2007 and I downloaded a 2010 calender template. It's just about what I need and fills up the page nicely, however I've noticed that there is room to stretch the calender on the page. Trouble is I can't figure out how to do that! The little grabber thingy on the top left of each month allows you to pull it but not re-size it. How can I do that to take advantage of every single area of space on the page?

Hello, Welcome to SF,

Try these steps and see whether it works

In Word 2007, go to Office button > Word Options > Proofing > AutoCorrect
Options > AutoFormat As You Type tab, and check the box for "Internet and

Hope this helps,

Hi,

I need help with word 2007. When I open my document (.doc format), word automatically reformats it during loading. After this, I see a lots of garbage in the contents list. This garbage are in fact lines from my document. In the document they look just like other text, but they appear in the list. When I update the style of these lines (for example it uses normal and I just click on normal style), they disappears from the list. I save the document but next time word reformats it again and I have the exactly the same garbage in the contents list. I realized I can stop the formmating during document open by ESC, which at least does not corrupt the document again, but how do I repair the document permanently?

What is wrong with my document? How do I repair my document?

I have found that when I run word 2007 or any other office 2007 program and go to the open a file icon, you then get the open file window that has all of my word documents. Since I saved them with thumbnails, there is a thumbnail of each document saved. Now here comes the problem; over on the right there is the preview pane and when you click on a file for preview, I get the error message: "This file can't be previewed because of an error in the Microsoft Office Word previewer". Of course I have googled this problem, but I haven't found much info other that to run the program with the /a on the end of the desktop short cut which turns off many of Words add-ins and other things that I really don't know about. Yes when you run it in this mode, the preview handler does work as it should. Does know the cause of this behavior and have a solution?

Answer:Office 2007 Open Word Document Window

Since running the program with the /a locks out plug-ins and such, I should of known that a plug-in was causing the problem. I disabled Adobe plug-in and it now works. How about that.

I just obtained an A55 ThinkCenter which had a 60-day trial of MS Office installed. I had no need nor wanted Office 2007.  Tried to install MS Word 2000. It installed without any problems, but it would not open completely and remained hung up. I used the Control Panel to uninstall MS Office 2007 and then MS Word 2000 worked. After I uninstalled Office I noticed that there were remnants of Office still installed. Does anyone know of a safe way to remove the rest of that Office Stuff? I also have another problem caused by that Office trial installation. When I receive Emails with PowerPoint attachments they cannot be opened in OutLook Express.

Okay, I'm a little bit stumped on this issue. I've got a laptop running Vista Business and MS Office 2007. All is well until you try importing a video into Powerpoint. At that point, Powerpoint stops responding and crashes. Vista restarts Powerpoint for you, but the issue continues to occur. If I import the video and tell it to play on click, rather than when the frame starts, the program does not crash until the video attempts to play.

I've tried repair Office, completely uninstalling Office and then reinstalling, it's fully patches and up to date. Tried running sfc /scannow. There were a few issues it claimed it couldn't fix due to files being locked IIRC, but none of them were related to either Office or WMP. I also tried installing WMP11 from Microsoft, but it refuses to install because the version already on there is slightly newer.

At this point, I'm kind of stumped. It seems like it's related to Office's media player capabilities, which I'm guessing utilizes WMP, but I'm not positive and no one else appears to be having a similar issue from my search of MS' news groups and google. . . any one have any suggestions or come across this before by any chance?

I have been using Word and “Microsoft office 2007 - Document Imaging” for doing OCR and passing text to WORD. Recently it has been doing something very strange. When I try to send the OCR’d text to WORD (“Send text to Word”), WORD gives an error message:
“Server Busy. This action cannot be completed because the ‘document 1 - Microsoft Word’ program is not responding. …”
If I can minimize the empty Word document window, a small dialog box appears asking me “Do you want to convert from
[list of file formats] to WORD?” If I select HTML, The text finally appears in Word. Sometimes the Word/Document Imaging programs hang up completely and I have to go to “Task Manager” to get out of the predicament.
I have un-installed and re-installed “Microsoft Office 2007” with no success in solving the problem.
Can anyone tell me what is going on? How can I go directly to Word instead of having to convert from HTML? How did it get to HTML in the first place?

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 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 can anyone help me?I have 'hyperlinked' to a Word document in Powerpoint 2000 and, although the document has opened, it is minimised in the taskbar and I can only view it by stopping the presentation which is not ideal.What I want is for the document to be displayed in full screen format, so that when I close it, I can revert to the Powerpoint slide that I opened the Word document with. (I have set the properties of the Word shortcut icon to 'maximised' but this hasn't helped).This used to work in XP and now I am running Vista on a laptop, (I don't know whether this is the problem). ps I haven't tried the presentation on a pc or laptop running XP yet. Thanks for any help you can give me.

Ok... for some odd reason, that I cannot seem to grasp, Microsoft eliminated the ability to run more than one session of Powerpoint at a time with office 2007. This puts us in an awkward position as we frequently use old powerpoint files as a reference for new ones and/or use them as a reference in phone meetings with customers. You can open more than one document at a time, but you're forced to juggle between them in a single session....

Not only is this incredibly frustrating trying to sort through 5 or 6 PPT files, but it's also makes our work a LOT more time consuming than it should be.

I've done a little research around google and haven't really found a way around this yet but I figured that someone here has to of been down this road before. Is there a way around this stupid limitation (short of going back to office 2003 or openoffice)? Why in the world would microsoft do this? It's mind boggling. Word, Excel, Outlook, etc all work fine... it's only powerpoint that's had this ability taken away.

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.

If you want to uninstall and not leave any remnants, the best way is to do a system restore. If you have just installed these programs and want to uninstall System Restore is the best way to be sure that you get everything. The next best way is get the free process cc cleaner. It is safe and will remove every peice of gunk from your hard drive. If you try it you may be able to remove all remnants and then move on.

Answer:Help opening/converting powerpoint 2007 for office 2003

Hi there
2 options

(I assume the document is an office 2007 document -- if it's earlier than 2003 then your copy of office will read it OK).

1) Get Powerpoint / Excel / Word 2007 Viewer from MS download

For example Powerpoint

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en

This will at least allow Read access into the document


2) With a bit of cutting and pasting open a blank 2003 document and paste into your open 2003 document data from the other window where you've opened the powerpoint document with the viewer.

An easier solution is to find a machine with Office 2007 installed - open the document and save as a 2003 type document -- for example if you have office 2007 installed at work.

The thing is, in Start - Programs I have both. Is there any way to get rid of 2003? Add/Remove programs shows just 2007, and one seems to be in C:/ProgramData and the other in C:/Program Files. Any help?

Thanks in advance =P

Answer:Microsoft Office Powerpoint Viewer 2003 And 2007

Hi again, PP viewer allows you to read Power point files if you dont want it just delete 2007 through add and remove programs if 2003 remains I would reinstall it then remove it. http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details...;displaylang=enhttp://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details...;displaylang=en

I have a document that was created in Office 2003 and had document protection enabled. When I try and open it in Office 2007 the protected document settings indicate that there are no restrictions yet I am unable to edit the document. Does anyone know how to disable the document protection from within Office 2007.

There are many of these documents that were created in Office 2003 so setting up an office 2003 machine would be very impractical for the random times I happen upon these documents.
 

Answer:Protected Document Office 2007

This might be a ridiculous response, but here goes. What if you were able to save the document as the new Office 2007 format, and then resave it back to the Office 2003 format? Would the protection follow?

Hi, all!

I am producing a Powerpoint presentation using blocks of text from a Word document. The text is currently in the following format:
Code:
[Spanish question]
[Spanish response]
[English translation]

[Spanish question]
[Spanish response]
[English translation], etc.
My goal is to import this Word document as an a Powerpoint outline. I've been using two macros to prepare the document:

Macro 1: Moving English to the middle
I need the English translation to directly follow the Spanish question. Here's the macro that I've been using:
Code:
Sub MoveEnglish()
'
' MoveEnglish Macro
'
'
Do
Selection.MoveDown Unit:=wdParagraph, Count:=1, Extend:=wdExtend
Selection.Cut
Selection.MoveUp Unit:=wdLine, Count:=1
Selection.PasteAndFormat (wdPasteDefault)
Selection.MoveDown Unit:=wdLine, Count:=4
Loop Until (Selection.End = ActiveDocument.Content.End - 1)
End Sub

Macro 2: Adding tabs
Based on what I've read, Powerpoint uses tabs to translate a text outline into a presentation. A single tab designates a main bullet, while two tabs designate a secondary bullet. I'm using tabs to set the Spanish question as the title, the English translation as the main bullet, and the Spanish response as the secondary bullet. In other words:
Code:
Slide title
[Tab]Main bullet
[Tab][Tab]Secondary bullet
I've been using the following macro to add tabs to the text:
Code:
Sub AddTabs()

I am trying to compile an index for my collected travelogues. My intention is to have the Main Entry contain the name of a country and the Sub Entry contain a place in that country (eg England/Canterbury). From what I can determine it doesn't seem possible to set a default Main Entry (eg England) and then mark sub-entries (eg Canterbury) so that each time I mark an entry it automatically becomes a sub-entry of the main entry. It seems to me (and I'm probably wrong) that compiling an index for a 124 page document will be very time consuming as I will have to manually enter the main entry and sub-entry each time I want an item to appear as a sub-entry of a main entry.

Does my post make sense? A summary of what I want is:

MAIN ENTRY: England (default so I don't have to keep typing it in)
SUB-ENTRY: Canterbury (entered by Word when I mark it)

I compiled an index for another document some time ago in the same style but can't remember what I did.

I just started using office 2007 and I am having a problem with a document created in word 2000. I have a document that has form fields that when I use it I tab through the various form fields filling out the information and when done with that I un-protect the document (previously I had put a "protect form" button in the tool bar). In word 2007 it seems to be a more drawn out process. Is there any way to just add a protect form button again and make this a one step process? Thanks in advance!
 

Answer:protecting a document in word 2007

You could surely record a macro and assign a button to the macro, no? Alternatively, see if you can't find the menu command to protect under customizing toolbars (Tools-->Customize in 2003)

I'm in a bit of a muddle with a file. I run a Packard Bell computer with Windows 7 64 bit. I created a novel with word 2007, complete with an index. All seemed well until I wanted to change it in prep for making into an eBook. I removed the index marks and converted it to .doc format, and since then every time I do anything to the work it wont save it except as a new file in a new name. Then I can't delete the old file as it says it is still open (which it isn't). I can't change the name of it or move it or put it in a separate folder or anything. So now I have about six or seven of these frozen files scattered on my computer, getting confused as to which one is the most up to date, and I'm a bit worried that when I send one off for converting to eBook it might be rejected for being corrupted. I tried using an unlocker, and it said it had worked but the files are still frozen just the same. Help!!!

Answer:Word 2007 document frozen

identitycouch
Sounnds like you may be leaving temporary files around when the documents are saved/closed. Have a look in the folder where you document is stored for files with odd names starting with ~. These may be causing the problems.
For safety's sake do back everything up before deleting anything.
Hope this helps, but at least it will bring your post back to the top of the list and someone else might be able to give better advice.

I'm working on a Windows Server 2003 Terminal Server. We have 9 users in our office connect to this server to do everything they need to do. All users are having the same problem. There were some documents that got saved to the auto-recovery (this was several months ago). Since that time, every time we open a word doc, it shows the auto-recovery list on the left. when we close Word it asks:
"The document recovery task pane contains some recoverd files that have not been opened. Would you like to view these files the next time you start Word?"
Yes, I want to view these files OR
No, remove the files, I have saved the files I need.

We click NO to remove the files, hit OK and it tells us it "can't delete the file, can't read from the source file or disk.". then we have to click OK 6 times for each file that is in the auto-recovery pane on the left.

Any idea how to make this go away??

I believe that the document properties in Word 2007 (especially author) is being picked up from the login name in windows XP. I know how to change the document properties on a single document, however, I would like to know how to change the document properties for WORD -- period. In other words, I don't want my login name to be the author, I want my REAL name to be the author. Also, my company name is NOT in my login info, so there is no company coming up, I would like to change these properties so that everytime I start a document it's already there. So far everytime I change the properties, then close the document and start a new one, it goes back to the original. (I assume this problem is being perpetrated throughout the Office Suite...)

Is this an option?

Hi there

My appoligies if there is already a thread on this topic, but I have tried to go through everything and have not picked anything up. My problem:

I have designed a letterhead layout for one of my clients in Microsoft Word 2007(there is an image inserted into the top of the document, then I have inserted text boxes containing contact details etc), now when the client opens the letterhead, she only sees the the image, the text boxes are gone???

Now she has just sent me an email explaining her problem, but when I open the attachment I see the text boxes with their content and everything else. Are we going crazy here? The ONLY thing I can think of, that would cause this problem, is that I am using Office 2007 and she is using and older version, but what boggles my mind here, is that I have saved the document as "Word 97-2003 document" and my client still can't see the text boxes (only the image header). Am I doing something wrong here? Is there something need to install?

I am using Windows XP, Professional, version 2002 (Service Pack 3) with Microsoft Office 2007, my client says she is also using XP 2002, but with Microsoft Office 2003.

Anyone's assistance here would be greatly appreciated.

How to remove preselected formatting Word 2007 documents. OR how to override existing formatting with different options ?

Answer:How to remove formatting from a Ms Word 2007 document

I'm not sure this is the best way to do this but you can make your changes such as tabs, borders, fonts etc and "save as" a template. Next time you run word you can click "New" and select "My Templates" and open the one you saved. I just looked into it and a better way to do this would be to make the changes you want to be the usual settings and then select the little arrow at the lower right hand corner of the "Page Setup" tab. Here you can select "Default" which will open a window that asks "Do you want to change the default settings for page setup" which is what I think you are trying to do.

I've run the trial version of MS Office 2007 for a month now. Today Powerpoint is doing something strange when I insert special characters such as a Euro charachter, , or a Spanish accent on a letter, .

What occurs is that Powerpoint doesn't move the cursor to after the character and it cuts the space before and after the character so it sticks too close to the character before and after. Basically it bunches up the special character with the before and after characters, and then positions itself in front of the special charachter I just wrote. Then I need to add space before and after the special character I wrote to make it give space around the character.

Any ideas???

With Office, when you reinsert the original CD, one of the options is usually "repair/modify" the installation.
You can't do any harm with this method.
If no luck you might be best to uninstall Powerpoint and the do a full reinstall again.

Need help trying to save a word 2007 document. Am running Windows Vista. I have been working on this document for the past couple of days, a high school maths investigation with lots of equations and graphs copied over from 'Autograph' a 3d graphing software. I have been able to save it with ease with all this stuff on it until an hour ago. When I press CTRL+S it opens up the save as box (even though i've already saved it before). Then when i press save in this dialog box the box closes for a half a second before opening again without me pressing anything. I do it again and again and notice the little loading bar that tells you it's saving in the bottom right hand corner of the document gets stuck and then stops when the box opens up again. I've tried to rename it and this doesn't work. i copied it into an old word document and then saved that document and that document wouldn't save either. i got rid of it off that document and the old document saved perfectly. I closed it just to check it was actually not saving and it isn't. Is there something wrong with my document? or is it word? please help!

I just ran the Document Inspector on a Word 2007 document. It reported that "Custom XML data was found". I don;t know what that is and I never intentionally created any. But before I allow the Inspector to remove it, I'd like to see what it is.
 
How can I find it?

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 of course closed the program before I realized I couldn't find it, so I couldn't try to resave it as something else. I know I saved it more than once. I looked everywhere I can possibly think of!! The recent documents, my documents, everything.

I really need help. Please someone tell me there's a way to find it. It mus... Read more

Answer:Lost But Saved Microsoft Word 2007 Document

It "saved" to a temporary folder. If you've searched the whole drive for the file name and it didn't show up, then it has already been wiped out. When working with e-mail attachments, you need to save it to a known location before making changes to it.

So I am officially desperate! I worked on a project in Microsoft Word 2007. I then went to go open it the next day and all of the text was completely gone!! I am only a beginner when it comes to computers so I have absolutely no idea what happened.
To better understand the problem here were the chain of events:
I worked on 2 documents, saved them in a folder, and then closed MSWord
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
In my frustration I attempted to move it over and over again to no avail
I gave up and closed the Documents folder and turned off my computer
The very next day I went to open the project and both the original documents and the copied ones were COMPLETELY EMPTY!!!
the files were still there but the all of text was completely gone!
Through Microsoft forums I've repeatedly tried the "Recover Text from any File" and "Open and Repair" methods
They've remained completely empty
I don't think I can redo the project correctly in the time it is due! Please any info will help. Thanks

Also, if this helps- I tried to save another Document and MSW says... Read more

From time to time, when I open a Word document, it is opened read only. I have no idea why this happens. It is fairly infrequent (3-4 times a month) and seems random.
 
The problem is that I don't notice that it's read only, so I go about merrily on editing the document. When I try to save it, I get the Save As dialog. In  then have to save it under a different name, delete the old copy, and rename the new one. In addition to a royal pain, it screws up my archive log.
 
Is there a way that I can have Word warn me whenever a document is opened read only?
 
Thanks

Answer:Can I get Word 2007 to warn me when a document is opened read only?

I did a little more research and found this website:
 
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/12630878/word-vba-document-readonly-status-incorrectly-returns-false

It has a document_open macro which I adapted as follows:

Sub Document_Open()
If ThisDocument.ReadOnly = False Then Exit Sub
MsgBox "This document is read only."
'UserForm1.Show
End Sub

I saved it in a Normal code module and set a breakpoint. It does get executed every time a document is opened, but the readonly test is always False, even when the document has the Read Only flag set and the title bar clearly says "(Read Only)".
 
Is there a way to modify this macro so that the MsgBox statement will execute when a document is opened read only?

Hi,

Does anyone know if it is possible to get Word 2007 to select a different default dictionary based on the current document? If I open a personal letter, for example, I want to use my personal dictionary as default, so that when I right-click to add a word, it goes in there; if, however, I am writing a technical document, I want a right-click to add to my work-related dictionary. I know I can change the default by going into options, but it is difficult to remember each time I open a document.

Any help would be very much appreciated.

Best wishes, Patrick

I have a 304 page .docx document in Word 2007 on a Vista-run PC. The document itself is fine, but when I copy it to my laptop which runs on Windows 7 the format changes with the result that the document shrinks to 285 pages. Also, some of the text overflows onto the next line. The result is that I can only edit the document on Vista whereas I would like to edit the document on both machines. Does anyone know what might be causing this problem?

I have MS Word 2007 and the one thing I hate about it is it's default document settings. These are the settings that are applied when I open a new document in MS Word. Exactly what I dislike is the line spacing. It is always set to 1.15 and there is also a new setting I've never seen in a MS word application. It is simply stated as After and is measured by a pt value. This setting is always at 12 and I want it to be 0.If anybody knows how to keep these settings permanent please give me a heads up.

Hi Everyone,
I am wondering if it is possible to add new fields to the Document Property items of Quick Parts (Insert - Quick Parts - Document Property). Right now it only lists 15 items (Abstract, Author, .... Subject, Title).

I use them for doing Auto-fills (ie, if I have 30 Titles in my document, then just entering the first one will auto-populate the rest), but I would like more.

Thanks in advance!!
