Can't open OneDrive document in office 2007

Question: Can't open OneDrive document in office 2007

I have office 2007 on a windows 10 machine and when I'm in OneDrive I right click on a document and click open in excel, but it does nothing, then I open it in excel online then click open in excel and it brings me to a page to purchase office 360........did they drop support for office 2007?? This is really really annoying because I'm pretty sure I was able to do it before I upgraded to windows 10.

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.

When I try to open a 2007 Word or Excel document I recieve as an attachment in Outlook 2003, I get the following message:
"This action is only valid for products that are currently installed". Office 2007 compatibility pack was installed and it still did not work.

I then uninstalled Office 2003, uninstalled the Office 2007 compatibility pack and then I ran CCleaner to clean up the registry. I updated my OS (currently has Windows XP SP3) with all updates, reinstalled Office 2003, installed Office 2003 SP 3 and then reinstalled the Office 2007 compatibility pack.

I still get the same message when I try to open an Office 2007 attachment in Outlook 2003.

I am wondering if anyone knows how to customize the "Open Office Document" program in Office 2000... this is the small program that archives shortcuts and has a tool bar on the left hand side with options that include : Web folders, Favorites, Desktop, Personal and History. I want to customize the "Look In:" tool bar...


Answer:Office 2000: Open Office Document Shortcut

I can't find a single way to change that setting. So, here's what I'd do.

Go to your (default) folder in Windows Explorer. Right-click it and hit Create Shortcut. Then, right-click the shortcut and hit Properties. Hit Change Icon. Give it the Open Office Document icon and also rename it to Open Office Document.

Copy or cut the shortcut.

Go to C:\windows\start menu and delete the old Open Office Document Shortcut and paste the new one in there.

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?

there is supposed to be an option in the tools tab of the office suite to access document and image scanner yet it doesn't appear to be there.

the software that came with the printer isn't compatable and no updates are available for the software which isn't very good anyway.

has anyone seen a link or know of a link to download this side of office as an addon or plug in?

any help would be great thanks.

edit: oh i should add it's for a vista 32 bit system not my own system.

Answer:Office 2007 document and image scanner

Apparently Microsoft says the scanning option is not available in Office 2007. Here's the quote from the Office 2007 Help section search result for scanning:

The "From Scanner or Camera" option for scanning documents and pictures is not available in Microsoft Office Word 2007. Instead, you can use your scanner to scan the document, and then you can save the file to your computer.
After you scan the document, you can use Microsoft Office Document Imaging to create a version of the document that you can edit.

Just bought a new laptop with Windows7 64bit installed-my first exposure to Windows7. I had Office 2007 installed on my old Dell 32 bit machine. I had also recently pruchased Office 2010 and installed that on my new machine.

Now, when I try to open those 32bit 2007 files with 64bt 2011, Iget an error message that "no picture file is available", or words to that effect. When I try to "open with", the only option displayed is "Microsoft Office" with an icon that looks like a picture file. When I try to browse to the proper office program(Excel, for example), there are none of teh Office suite programs displayed, only "Microsoft Office".

I can navigate seperately to the proper progran, Excel, etc., and drag the file into the application, and it opens, and all seems to work OK. I "save as" the proper application file, but it still will not open with double-click on the file name.

I have not seen this particular item in the forums and would appreciate very much some help in fixing this issue.

Often when I open an existing Word 2007 or Excel 2007 document, two document windows open. One is the desired document. The other is a blank and untitled window perhaps better termed an ?empty? window with a pale blue color. None of the elements in the Ribbon are active (grayed out, or dimly ?blued out?). It is like a phantom window alongside the desired window. Nothing can be typed into the phantom. The phantom can be closed and the desired document remains. Also, the desired document can be closed and the phantom remains.

This only happens when I am opening by double left clicking on a file from within a Windows folder. If I open the file by right clicking and ?Open?, I do not get the extra document. The behavior is inconsistent; after a few various Office documents are opened, the behavior ceases and only the desired window appears. Behavior is confined to Word and Excel; double clicking on other types of documents, such as text, Acrobat, or photo files does not give this problem.

I also looked at this problem in Task Manager.
When I open a file by right-click + Open, I see one application task in T.M. that begins with the normal Word 2007 file icon on the left: a small W with a few tiny lines (within the icon) under the W. Then Filename - Microsoft Word non-commercial use; then under Status is shown Running. This is the desired file. When I open a file by double-clicking with the left mouse, two application tasks show up in T.M. Neither of these tasks has the normal ... Read more

Hey All,

Here is my issue. The Company we consult for has not transitioned all of the way to Office 2007. We have a number of machines that still have Office 2003. Compatibility Pack works on almost all issues.

Current issue is one of our users received a PowerPoint 2003 that has embedded PowerPoint 2007 files. When the user opens the PowerPoint 2007 file Office 2003 shuts down. He has to download the 2007 file to his desktop.

From what I can see this is because the file conversion process shuts down Office 2003 before attempting to open the PowerPoint 2007 file.

Another issue that may be complicating the error is we had to run a Fixit patch from Microsoft that was causing Excel, Word and PowerPoint to be scanned which caused long opening times. I don't remember the KB article for that one at the moment but will find it if I need to.

Thanks for any help in advance.

On my Win7 PC I have open office and on my WinXP Laptop I have Office 2007. Both have one major problem: the spell-checker does not work regularly for English and does not work at all for other languages, e.g., French, Spanish, or German.

I did read other threads regarding this problem and I did go through the routine of Tools-option-writing aids; and marked "check spelling as you type." I also have my abc on the menu bar checked and the adjacent ABC is underlined with a red wavy line (which means the spell-checker is active).

The problem is that when I activate the Eng language in my task bar and type a wrong word, it will be marked with a wavy red line-- which means my spell checker works for English. Now while I still have English on my language bar, if I type a word in Spanish, the spell-checker doesn't work because the foreign word is not marked with red-wavy line. If I change the language in my task bar to Spanish and write a wrong Spanish word, again the spellchecker doesn't seem to work.

Anybody has any idea what seems to be the problem?

I greatly appreciate your help.

I changed OneDrive properties and now all Office apps crash on file open/save browsing.

My family and I were confused between OneDrive and the Documents library in our recent install of Office 365 Office 2016. Sometimes we saved to OneDrive when we wanted to save to local Documents. So, I stupidly changed OneDrive to a 'hidden' folder on one of our machines thinking that was a quick and easy fix. Since then Office products (Word, Excel, etc.) all crash on that machine (i.e. go into Not Responding mode) whenever we try to perform a file save as browse or file open browse and I have to use Task Manager to end them and we lose the document.

First, I tried the Office 365 Quick Repair and the Online Repair. Then I tried 'un-hiding' OneDrive and reran Online Repair. Then I tried enabling "Prevent the usage of OneDrive for file storage" in the Local Group Policy Editor>>Computer Configuration>>Administrative Templates>>Windows Components>>OneDrive, accessing it with Win+R gpedit.msc. I left the other OneDrive configurations as 'not configured'. I reran Online Repair again. That didn't work.

Answer:Changed OneDrive properties and Office locks on file open/save browse

Sounds like you messed stuff up pretty badly there by messing where you shouldn't.

That said, I think the best course of action is to do a repair install - How to Do a Repair Install of Windows 10 with an In-place Upgrade. This will let you keep your programs and setting without having to reinstall all your programs. Once that's done, you might look to reinstall Office.

If that doesn't work, you may need to do a clean install - How to Clean Install Windows 10.

Answer:Office XP Word slow to open first document

What is the brand and model of computer, and how much memory do you have?
There is a Microsoft Update for Office 2002 and XP that you should install if not already done.
First, I would run the free CCleaner, then consider others to remove congestion. Has your system been defragged? Have you run antispyware, adware, and antivirus scans? Suggest you run: Windows Defender, Adware, SpyBot 1.5.2. Or professional paid stuff such as AVG, SpySweeper, Spyware Doctor, Nod32, etc., if for no other reason than to rule out common causes.
Sometimes the problem is exacerbated by an install of a multifunction printer. HP, Lexmark, and Epson are particularly problematic. You would need to uninstall the printer, then reboot, and remove all evidence of it with RegClean, then reboot, defrag, then reinstall the printer.

We recently had a PC which was pre-installed with Tesco Complete Office. I had typed some letters etc. and saved them onto a CD. Tonight I wanted to access one of the letters but because we no longer have the PC or Tesco Complete Office I cannot open the document.Is there any way of opening it?

I am trying to get Word 2007 to hide my unused status bar, but unfortunately there does not seem to be an interface toggle for this in the 2007 version. I then tried to copy and paste a macro for this, which worked, but only when I manually ran it each time I opened a document. Is there a way I can set it to run automatically alongside another macro I have running when a document opens?

I know nothing about macro language...I just copied and pasted the code. So being as descriptive as possible with your solution would help me.

Here's the code (which currently works) for automatically adjusting the zoom on my documents:

Public Sub AutoOpen()
ActiveWindow.ActivePane.View.Zoom.Percentage = 100
End Sub
Here's the code for hiding the status bar that I want to also run automatically whenever I open a document:

Application.CommandBars("Status Bar").Visible = False

I have got two PCs (Desktop and Laptop) connected to each other through crossover cable.

They can see each other and they can ping each other.

Desktop has got Microsoft office installed on it,,,,laptop has not got installed Microsoft office.

From Laptop (does not office installed) I tried to open the invoice.doc on Desktop,,,,but I could not.

Is this normal ?

Do I need to install Microsoft office on laptop as well ?

Answer:Open a word document via a network from a PC does not have installed office

Yes, you need the program on both machines (or whatever machine you want to view it on).

Sharing a file does not share the programs associated with it, nor is there a way to share most applications like office.

Answer:Open Office Writer Format Confusing a document

I haven't got a copy of OpenOffice on any of my machines at the moment having moved on to the offshoot LibreOffice which is developing much faster. Here's some questions;
Do these grey marks print? Are they evident on other documents you open at the same time? If so I'm thinking aloud the lines that the document has the option to show non printing paragraph marks and formatting. On the toolbars look for the Backward "P" symbol likened by some to a musical clef. That toggles these on/off.

I am looking for a free word processing program similar to the Windows Office program that will open a Windows office 2007 document. Are there any out there? I found and downloaded AbiWord, but I can't figure out how to open the document I need.

Answer:free word processing program that will open a windows 2007 document?

You should be able to click File, click Open, browse to and select the file you want to open, and that's about it. Or right click the file, select Open with.... then browse to AbiWord's EXE file (probably in Program Files\AbiWord), and click OK. You can also try OpenOffice but it's a pretty large download at 120mb for the standard version, the 'Pro' version is about twice that size.
Open Office Standard
Open Office Pro (aka Oxygen)
You can also use Universal Viewer to view the document, but you won't be able to make any changes to it or edit it in any way. UV is for viewing/printing only. If that's all you need, here's the link: It integrates into the Windows right-click menu, so you'd just right click on the file in question and select Universal Viewer in the menu.
And all the programs mentioned above are 100% free to download and use!

Office XP tries to Install when I start WORD/EXCEL in Office 2007.

Answer:Open Office & Microsoft Office (2007)

Yes, you can run OOorg and MS Office on the same PC. You may run into occasional problems when the PC can't decide which program to use to open a certain document, but this is easily solved by right clicking on the document, and selecting Open With and then selecting the program you want to open it with.

Currently I type in Open Office or Libre Office Writer. Export as PDF. Load the pdf into Draw, change the background color to white, then export as png. Then click okay to a popup. Then the png is written to the hard drive.

I have looked for a solution of just using their Writer program to export as png, but there doesn't seem to be any method to accomplish that. The 'convert pdf to png' programs out there look to take at least the same number of steps. I did try one.

I'm working on my Traveller site, with over 1000 planets/solar systems so far, and doing this over and over is becoming tedious.

I prefer a png for documents as it makes it easier to place and download them from my site.

Is there a way to accomplish this in fewer steps ?

Hi all new to this forum and the Yoga. Awesome laptop/tablet so far. I do have one issue...In Laptop mode after I open any Office 2010 program (excel, word), the two finger scrolling or any of the touchpad gestures such as pinch to zoom etc stops working. The touch pad still works as well as everything  on the yoga. If I reboot touchpad works again. Any ideas...I already tried uninstalling and reinstalling the synaptics driver.
Moderator Note: Edited subject to match content.


Go to Solution.

Answer:Yoga 13 Office 2010 - touchpad issues after open any document

You can reenable the gestures again by going to C:\Program Files\Synaptics and running the individual programs. I believe SynTPEnh will do it but it might be SynLenovoGestureMgr. For some reason Office 13 seems to kill the app in charge of gestures. I have no clue how to fix it but at least this way you don't have to reboot every time. (Note: once you go back to office it will kill it again so get your office stuff out of the way first, then launch the program)

In order to answer that question we would need to know what you define as "better". For instance, if your main consideration is price then OpenOffice is better since it is free to download. However, if you need the ability to create and run VBA macros, then Office 2007 is better since OpenOffice doesn't support VBA.

Mom's system just got hosed so I had to reinstall. I installed Win2K with SP4, Office XP, and all updates. I tried to open a .docx file with Word, and it said I needed to install a converter from here:

I did so, and now when I try to open a .docx it says,
"This is a pre-release version of the Compatibility Pack and can open pre-release Office 2007 files only. Do you want to check for a newer version of the Compatibility Pack? (OK) (Cancel)"

So I click OK and it takes me back to the above page to download the same thing again..

I found this:
In method 1, there is no Office2007Converters.adm file,
In method 2, there is no HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Office directory in regedit,

I wonder if the release date of 1/6/2010 for version 4 of the compatibility pack might have anything to do with the problem. Could Microsoft have possibly re-released the pre-release version as an "update"?

Word was working fine before the re-install. And I've tried opening several files which were working fine before, with no problems, so it's not the file that is broken.

Any ideas?

When I started my computer this morning Windows ran a disk check on my back up flash drive (K:\). When I tried to open Outlook in MS Office 2007 I got the following error message:

"Cannot start Microsoft Office Outlook. Cannot open the Outlook window. The set of folders cannot be opened. The file K:\Personal\Email Addresses Backup.pst is not a personal folders file."

This has happened before so I tried what I've done before. (1) I've tried to repair MS Office using the program cd but that hasn't helped. (2) I tried starting MS Office while holding the Ctrl key so that I could get to the Repair command in Help but that didn't work either. (3) I ran scanpst.exe on the Backup.pst file and it repaired it. That allowed me to open Outlook and over 1,500 emails began to download (from my ISP's server I guess).

I suspect that Outlook is using the backup file as its primary source for my Contacts (individuals and distribution lists) and wonder if anyone can help me get those items into the Outlook program itself. Last time time this happened I received a message saying that the K:\Personal\Email Addresses Backup.pst file wasn't available but the program ran anyway.

Any help would be appreciated.

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.

I used to have Microsoft Word or Office on my computer, but it at some point was deleted from the system. However, my resume is a Word document and I need to update it because I am moving. I downloaded the 60 day trial version of Microsoft Office 2007 and it seemed to install properly, but when I tried to open Word from the Start Menu, nothing opened. I tried opening my resume directly, and still nothing. I tried restarting the computer, uninstalling and reinstalling it, and still nothing.

As a result, my fiance went out and bought Microsoft Office Home and Student 2007 for me, but we still have the exact same problem. It seems to install correctly, but when we try to run the programs from it, nothing happens. The Microsoft Office Diagnostics that installs with it will work, but when I run it it does not find any issues. My fiance tried running the configuration for it and received the error code "Error 1923. Service 'Office Source Engine (OSE) could not be installed. Verify that you have sufficient privileges to install system services." We know that means that there is probably a previous version of office on the computer causing the problem, but we deleted the trial versions, as far as we know. I also ran CC Cleaner and the registry program on there to try to remove any last reminents, restarted the computer, tried again, and it STILL will not work.

Any help with this would be VERY much appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Answer:Microsoft Office 2007 installed but will not load/open

If you can't get it resolved, download and run Windows Installer Cleanup utility

and finally if all of this doesn't work, download Open Office v3. It is free and will open and allow you to work and save doc and docx files.

Or any other ideas to try?thanks.

Answer:office 2007 wont open docx file

If you're only getting "bits and pieces of document but also lots of errors", the files you're trying to open may be corrupt.Specifically, what "lots of errors" are you getting? What is the computer telling you?

In the office I have several hundred PST files. When I go to File - Open - Outlook Data Files
I can only select one file. Thus it's taking forever just to get through the alphabet... I there a method to open all the data files? I cannot select all - I am forced to choose one by one ...thanks

Answer:Office 2007 - Open - Outlook Data Files

You can only do it 1 at a time.

Why would you want 100's of PST files. You're scroll bar would go on for ever.

If you just want all the exsisting emails in one place. How about just inporting them?.

Hi all,

I am experiencing an unusual reaction from Office 2007 Enterprise. I am using Win XP SP3.
Office documents, Word, Excel etc...won't open when I am connected to the internet, regardless of connection type, LAN, USB Modem, Wireless wi-fi...
Whenever I unplug/disconnect the internet connection everything goes back to normalcy.

This problem started on first login after installing SP3, although I'm not relating one thing to another and in my opinion this has nothing to do with it, since I am using a similar configuration on my laptop with no problem whatsoever.

As you can imagine this is extremely annoying when working.

Thanks in advance. Any opinions or help will be most appreciated.
