Can I save a document update to one drive while the prior version is open on another device?

Question: Can I save a document update to one drive while the prior version is open on another device?

I use one drive to backup my excel spreadsheets for my small business. I do all the changes on my laptop, save a copy to one drive, then my husband is able to access the spreadsheets from his ipad while he is on the road. What happens if he has a spreadsheet open on his iPad at the same time that I am saving an updated version to one drive?

Preferred Solution: Can I save a document update to one drive while the prior version is open on another device?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Can I save a document update to one drive while the prior version is open on another device?

technically the updated verion should sync. Unless your husband makes changes to the existing or open sheet and saves it after you have done your changes it might update to the last one. Try one sample document to your needs and see how you go? YMMV

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.

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.

I have both Office 97 and 2K on my PC. Because most of our users haven't been upgraded yet, I would prefer to have 97 be the default when I double-click on a document. I know how to change the default, but if I'm not quick to hit cancel when Office2K does its install thing, my settings get overridden.

Is there a way in the Target of a shortcut to specify the program to use when I open that particular document? I use this one doc a lot, so I'd rather have its icon sitting on my desktop than have to open Word97 and then load the doc, but having the two versions can be a pain sometimes.

(I'm not sure--this might be a question better served by the Windows forum, but I'm giving it a shot here first.)

Thanks!

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.

Answer:Can't save xls document to Network drive

mjm, you might want to take a looks at "file streams"

as this could be a hint of why he can't save or delete the 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?

I SO don't like Office 2007; I miss all my hot-keys from the prior versions of Word and Excel. Is it possible to get rid of 2007 completely, and use the older version?

Answer:i'd rather use prior version of Office

If you have the install media for an older version, just go into the Control Panel, remove MS Office and reinstall the earlier version.To be able to open any documents created in 2007 you'll also need to install the Compatibility Pack from Microsoft.You will, of course, lose any of the additional features that may have been used when the document was created in 2007.

hi
i transfer img files from android via bt to pc, after all have been transferred, win10 asks in which folder they must be saved - this is the easy part.
if there is a transmission error on say img 200 out of 250, bt freezes and i have to redo the whole process and i can't find the files.
are the sent images in ram or somewhere i can actually find them and move them to the correct folder?
another problem is that as soon as the files are all sent and win asks me where i want to save them i only have a couple of minutes to respond - after that win will just cancel the whole process and the transfer is a non-event [a case in hand would be if i have 500 images to transfer and start the process and go to sleep - next morning i have nothing as i missed out on my 'window of opportunity' to save the files.
is there a way to setup bt that files are by default saved in a folder?
kind regards
God bless

I have a ton of docs in GD, but when I go to open them remotely, they will come up, but I can't "open" them and work on them. That is, they will open in the GD window, I can read them, there's a print option, etc, but you can't just open it in Word, say, so you can work on it.

I have several family PCs that I will be upgrading to Windows 7. Some ar XP and one is Vista. I want to do a clean install on all by wiping the partition and then installing Windows 7. Two questions:

1. Will I need to provide the XP and Vista install disks for the install to work?

2. Should I launch the install from within each OS and wipe the partition from within the install or should I wipe it first then boot the install?

Thanks!!

Answer:Does upgrade require proof of prior version?

1) No. all you need is windows 7
2) start the pc up, then put the disk in, go onto my computer, if you want to wipe all your files do a custom install... and then wait

I have tried system restore and startup repair to repair some of my problems but those have not worked, and i read online that reinstalling vista as an "upgrade" should solve everything without loosing your data.

I now have a useless .dat file that Win7 Easy Transfer can't use to identify and load the saved files and settings. My research has come up with nothing usefull.

Tried opening them from a remote PC and they open just fine. Can't do anything with them on my PC except view them in Visio itself.

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.

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.

Hello. I recently switched to Word 2013. It's taking some getting used to.
 
In prior versions of Word when I would "save as" or "open" I would get a folder list. If it were the first time since I had opened the program it would be my default setting: in my case, "My Documents." If I had opened a document and tried to "save as" it would show the most recent folder I had opened.
 
In Word 2013 instead of a folder list I get a list of recent documents. I also get a choice of Recent Documents, One Drive, Computer and Add a Place. This requires that I go through extra clicks to get to the proper folder. Is there a way to switch to a folder view?
 
By the way, what is this One Drive business?
 
Do I need to Add a Place each time I open a folder?
 
Thank you.

Answer:Word 2013 Issues: Open File; Save As; One Drive, etc.

You can select a default folder to save to, or set the default to Computer, and then navigate to the folder you want to save to -- File>Options>Save, check Save to Computer by default. You can select your default folder here as well.
When Saving As, you should be seeing a list of recent folders you've saved to, to the right of the OneDrive and Computer options.
 
If you have an outlook.com, live.com or hotmail.com email address, you can download the OneDrive application to your desktop and use it to save and sync files and folders to storage in the cloud. If you don't have email accounts with any of those, you can ignore the OneDrive option.

Hello,
 
I am sure you have heard the whole "sluggish computer, fan running none-stop" deal before. But I am not exaggerating. The only other indication that my computer may be infected is the fact that at least on two occasions when I was rebooting, I spotted browser-like windows with poker ads/other junk on the screen as the computer was shutting down, even though I had nothing open. At one point there was even a line of text in a page source-looking window that said something like "loan = -1" like some kind of code from an ad or something. Explorer.exe and Chrome crash routinely as well.
 
I would appreciate any assistance to help get my computer back on track.

Hi,

My PC has problem displaying flash drive icons correctly in file open and file save dialog boxes.

On my Dell Inspiron, there are 4 flash drives (Compact Flash, SD, Memory Stick, and xD/SM). The 4 drives' icons display fine from Windows Explorer but all 4 drive icons are missing in File Open and File Save dialog boxes. The problem exists in every application's file open and file save that I checked so I'm thinking it's a problem with Vista and not with specific application.

I'm running Vista x64 Home Premium.

Has anyone else encounter this problem? Does anyone have a solution for fixing these missing icons?

Hi,

Just converted from Win 7 Pro to Win 10 Pro yesterday, and afterwards installed a TPM chip. The chip is recognized by TPM Management. I haven't turned on Bitlocker yet.

The only way I can see to change the Owner Password first requires that I enter the current TPM Owner Password. The TPM seems to have been automatically initialized and Prepared by TPM Management. I assume that means an Owner Password has been generated but I have no idea what it is or how to back it up.

Perhaps it's tied into the Bitlocker Recovery Key? Just a guess; like I said I haven't turned on Bitlocker.

Has this something that has recently changed with Win 10? Is it safe to begin using Bitlocker even though I don't have the password saved offline?

Thanks,

Alright, I have a T510 with a single internal drive. I wish to add a SSD drive and make it my primary drive. I have an Ultrabay and know about the drive adapter for it and plan to use it as the new drive location. My question is how to perform the cloning of the primary drive. I can install the new SSD in the Ultrabay and use software, previously copied to the primary(or backup) drive since the Ultrabay is now used for the SSD so I can't run a CD. The issue is how to clone. I don't wish to buy another external drive just for the cloning software CD. I have an external hard drive that I use for backups. Has anyone cloned a copy of a drive(A) to another drive(B) and then copied it to a new drive(C)? If this is a good idea, it is easy since the CD drive is still available using this method. The end result would be to swap locations of the drives making the SSD the new primary internal drive and the old drive goes to the Ultrabay. Just looking for input.  Thanks for taking the time, Pete

Answer:How to Clone Primary Drive prior to, or after, adding a second drive in Ultrabay

What backup tool do you have? If you backup the primary drive, a good tool like Acronis True Image Home 2013 can restore to the new device without issue. I usually backup to an external USB attached drive, remove the source drive, install the new target drive, boot from the Acronis Recovery DVD, then run a restore to the new target. Easy

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?

hi:

I have a question.

Lets say you are going to download something from the internet, it doesn't matter what. When you click on the link a dialog box comes up with the location where you would like to save it. For example the location always comes up as "My Documents" as the save location by default.

Is there a way to change that ? so When it opens it goes to the location that you have specified.

Thanks

Answer:When you save a document -

To specify the default download directory for the Internet Explorer

Start Regedit
Go to HKEY_USERS \ .DEFAULT \ Software \ Microsoft \ Internet Explorer
Add a String value called Download Directory
For it's value, enter in the Directory where you want your downloaded files to go

hope that helps...

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.

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.

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'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?

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.

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.

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.

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.

I just upgraded my Win 10 machine to "Threshold-2" version 1511. All went smoothly! But it added 10GB to the hard drive storage used.

I presume this is due to the ability to "roll back" to the prior version (I have no Restore Points because that feature is disabled).

If I'm willing to commit to version 1511 and do not need to preserve the ability to roll back, is there a way to reclaim this space? I know one way is to do a "reset," but that wipes all my apps, requiring a reinstall, which is a pain. Is there a better/easier way?

As I understand it Win10 1511 10586 is more or less an upgrade over 10240 and as such there may be a Windows.old Folder on your HDD. Four of my computers had that after the same Folder left over from Win7 and Win8.1 were deleted. Might try disk cleanup, may get rid of it. Or simply wait 32 days to see if it automatically deleted.

The HD in that PC was partitioned 4X (300 GB Maxtor) with pics and music stored on the partitions but because other family come over and share the PC, I have admin account and guest to where guest doesn't have access to our pics/music etc (folders not shared and protected). I did try a new video card thinking that was it but no luck so I gave up and put together a barebone and just received it this week.

So I pulled the HD from the old PC into the new one (SATA worked) and do get the partitions (E, F and G drives in explorere). I was happy at 1st! Here's the problem. I can't view the files in the unshared folders of the slave even if I am the admin on the new PC. I can open all folders etc but can't save downloads to the drive, open any of my old pics, files etc, only getting basic "you don't have permissions to access this file/information" as if I'm guest on my old PC. I go and try to enable sharing but it does not work (it goes through the process and it shows the admin as having sharing access but when I try - nada). I even tried booting up from the old drive but it flashes "Windows XP" as if going to install then reboots and starts up from new drive Windows 7 (possibly the old HD boot partition was the original problem with the old PC, just a thought).

So my question is how do I access my s... Read more

Answer:Prior drive - sharing

This is a common issue when accessing an old drive formatted with NTFS from a new install of windows .

you need to go to the root of the drive (partition), take ownership of the drive, and then set suitable permissions from the new system.

This is especially true since Vista since the dual token system of UAC can exacerbate the issue, but the problem has been present since NT days, it is due to the fact that although the old and new user name may be the same the SID is actually different

I am frantically trying to upgrade the firmware on my Tpad G41 28865YU CDRW/DVD drive (GCC-4241N).  I located the driver update fix in the FWod01 CD firmware update package.  Unfortunately, this package only is available on a multitude of diskettes which most laptops - including do not have.  Fortunately, Lenovo at some point accumulated the 1st 8 firmware packages (FWod01-FWod08) into a CD-boot disk update .iso file for download and CD drive install.  Fine.  I brought down this .iso file and created the appropriate boot CD and ran it:  *FWoD08 here* I had traced the needed firmware version to 0202 as documented in the documentation for my GCC-4241N drive.  Unfortunately, the 0202 firmware never somehow made it into the FWod08 package which only contains the original 1.04 version which is the problem.  So, the documentation and the contents of this FWod08 is incorrect.  Any chance of getting this rebuilt, or made into a new CD boot iso with the GCC-4241N 0202 firmware?  The updates have gone upto FWod09 but that is back to diskettes.  Or - is there some way I can get the 0202 files to add to my current FWod08 CD disk? PJV

I installed the 57DC4102 firmware update on my 9550 and I've been suffering blue screens ever since.
Anyone else seeing this behavior?
Is there a way to download the older firmware? I've been searching, but I can't find any older versions. 
My laptop has crashed 3 times this morning. While it could be related to something else, the firmware was the most recent change on the laptop.

Answer:Toshiba XG3 Solid State Drive Firmware Update version 57DC4102

I just reinstalled my XPS 9550 with a new WIN10 creators edition image from MSDN. I started installing the newest drivers from Dell support and after I installed the 57DC4102 firmware the computer bluescreens all the time with the error "CRITICAL PROCESS DIED".
I downloaded the factory image from Dell and will try to install it now and test if it makes any difference.

Is there a way to get Word 2000 to save the printer settings in with the saved document?

Example: My favorite word processor, Lotus Word Pro, will save such things as which pages were printed last, whether it was printed duplex or normal, and which printer it was printed to. So, if I open the document, print it to my HP5 in duplex mode and then save the document, the next time I open and print that document, it has those same settings already set.

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.

Trying to save an Excel document to Documents folder but keep getting error saying I don't have permissions. I'm the only user! I have administrator rights.

Answer:Windows 10 won't let me save an Excel 2010 document?

Make sure it's the right documents folder.. navigate to C:\users\your user\documents
If still an issue, perhaps check the ownership of your documents folder..
