We have an upgrade on our computer units here in the company, my problem is when users save their 2007 excel files an error pops up, Errors were detected while saving "File Name". Microsoft maybe able to save the file by removing or repairing some features. To make the repairs in new file, click Continue. To cancel saving the file, click Cancel.

By the way, the files were save on the file server and users access them through single roaming profile that we created with full access on their folders.
i am hoping i could find an answer.

thank you

I'm trying to use column A as a 'sequence' number (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, ...) in a spreadsheet, so I enter '1' in cell A1 and enter the simple formula =A1+1 in cell A2 (which correctly returns the number 2). But, when I copy the simple formula in cell A2 and paste it into cell A3, the value in the cell is 2 even tho the formula shows as =A2+1. This works just fine in Excel 97 and 2003, so what am I doing wrong?

Thx for any advice you can give.

I recently formatted my HD and reinstalled MS Office Enterprise 2007, I last used MS Excel on the 08/06/2014 without a problem, today I go to use my Excel spreadsheet and for some weird reason it wants to roundup my cells.
I have cleared the cells formatted the number but it still keeps on rounding up 25799 to 258. I downloaded a stack of MS Office updates 3 days ago, is it possible one of these Updates has corrupted - broken my Excel program?

I am considering uninstalling all of those updates and turning off Updates for MS Office altogether.

Answer:Excel 2007 (MS Office 2007 enterprise)

Hi there.

To test if it's really a software issue, please try out on a new excel spreadsheet and see if the problem is still there. It might not necessarily be the software. Once we have confirmation that the problem exist on a fresh new spreadsheet, then try to do a repair first before uninstalling.

Hi All,

I really hope someone can help me. I've been looking through all the forums and haven't quite found a macro code that has worked for me. I know this is very simple, but I have no idea what I am doing. Here it goes....

I have a very simple expense report on Sheet 1 of an Excel (2007) workbook. In this worksheet, the first couple of columns simply list the expense items. However, there is a table with only 14 rows (including the header) of data (6-19). Underneath row 19 is a total row that sums the 2 columns of information (don't need to worry about this row but thought I'd tell you anyway). This table only has 4 columns as follows:

Column G - Code
Column H - Category
Column I - $ (this column is using the SUMIF function to calculate the expense category totals)
Column J - % of Total (this column is simply dividing column I by the Total $)

I don't know if this matters or not but there is also a pie chart linked to this table of information.

I would like this table (H6:J19) to automatically sort by % of Total (in descending order) any time I add new expenses so that I don't always have to sort manually.
If there is a way to do this, I would so appreciate simple instructions. I've attached a sample of what the report looks like.
I hope you guys can help!!!

Answer:MACRO NOVICE - Simple Auto Sort using Excel 2007

Hi Janel, welcom to the board

I think this should do the trick, I don't have 2007 here but I used your sheet in 2003

Add the following code the the Sheet1 project


Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
Sheet1.Range("G7:J19").Sort Key1:=Range("J7"), Order1:=xlDescending, Header:=xlNo, _
OrderCustom:=1, MatchCase:=False, Orientation:=xlTopToBottom, _
End Sub

To do this just right-click on the Sheet1 tab and select view Code, you will automatically be in the VBAProject.

In the right screen paste the code above.

every time you change values in the list the range G7:J19 without hearders will be sorted by Total % descending order, th epoie chart will do it's own work since it's related to this table.

Happy coding.

I have a user we recently upgraded from Office 2003 to Office 2007. Recently she has been experiencing intermittent crashes with her Excel 2007. It usually happens when she is opening a document, the system will say it will run into an error and then shuts down.

If I click on an excel document it opens in notepad.
If I open Excel and drill down to the libary document excel file the document will open in Excel.

For earlier versions of Office products, MSFT published a number of KB articles that describe the issue of having more than 1 version of Office in OS, andthey did list some significant potential problems.

Some of the articles were KB 292491, 218081, 828956 and 290576.

In any case, you would really have to uninstall 2007 before installing 2003.

G'day all,
I recently went from XP to Vista which has Office Excel 2007. The problem is that I saved spreadsheets from excel 2003 that saved as XLR files. The 2007 excel is supposed to open these files but it won't . There seems to be plenty of information on reading 2007 files with 2003 programs but not the reverse. Can I open them in a computer that has excel 2003 and save or convert the files to xlsx?
Hope someone can help, old dog.

Hi all,
help needed please for a excel formula for the following problem.
In my daughter in laws work she as to occasionally alter the the price of a lot of the goods they supply by 1 or 2 percent. The problem is that the manager/owner does not want the price to be exactly a round figure eg £1:00 it can be £0:95 or £1:05 in divisions of 5p So she is in need of a excel formula to round up/down the price to the nearest 5p omitting the .00 Can this be done?

Answer:Microsoft office 2007 excel formula

Not sure if this will work in 2007, I use 2010. There are two functions 'ceiling' & 'floor' that you can use.
EG: - Cell A1 has original price (£1 for example)
Cell A2 =b1*98/100 (a reduction of 2% so £0.98p)
Cell A3 = Ceiling(A2,0.05) will go to the nearest 5p above £0.98p (£1) or
Cell A3 = Floor(A2,0.05) will go to the nearest 5p below £0.98p (£0.95p).
Cells need to be formatted for currency.
Hope that helps

Hello everyone,

I have two questions regarding Microsoft Office Excel 2007, that are no doubt simple ones to answer.

Firstly, is it possible to have a column where every entry added would appear automatically with quotation marks? For example, if I entered Movie #1 in to a cell in Column A, when I click out of that cell, can it automatically change it to "Movie #1"?

Secondly, on a seperate work-sheet (but within the same work-book), how can I have a display telling me how many cells appear in a particular column on another work-sheet? For example, if I have Column A in Work-Sheet #2 filled with entries, can I have a cell in Work-Sheet #1 tell me how many entries there are there in total?

I hope that all makes sense.

Any help would be appreciated!

Try clicking on the Win7 Orb and selecting "Default Programs" and select "Associate a file type or protocol with a program". Scroll down to .xls and change the program that it opens with to Excel by highlighting it and clicking on the Change Program button in the right hand corner. You will recognise other Excel extensions in the same area which you might want to change in the same way.

Could be caused by an Excel Add-in. You might want to use the Office Button->Excel
Options->Add-ins and start disabling add-ins one at a time to figure out if
one of the active Add-ins is causing the problem.

You can also open
C:\Documents and Settiing\"Your profile/logon name"\Applications\Microsoft\
and look for the Excel folder. The Excel Folder will have a
subfolder called XLSTART, if there are any files in that folder, delete them.

I am creating a worksheet about financial repayments, where the repayments are irregular.

Say for example the total repayment is £1000 and I put this in cell D1 ( alongside other headers). I am putting the repayments in column C, so the first entry would be in cell C2.

What I want to know is whether or not there is a very (I mean VERY) simple way to format column D so that any entry in cloumn C will be automatically subtracted from the first figure of £1000 and subsequent running totals and if so will I also be able to format column D as a £ figure (I know how to do that but not with any other formatting)

Yes, I know I sound very lazy (I am), but my maths are poor and it will be a long list, so if I make just one error it will be a load of hassle.

I would be obliged for any assistance.

I'm typing up a lab report, and usually in the past I never had a problem with this. I have two graphs on there, and each one contains thousands of points. These graphs are REALLY slowing down Word. I'm getting lagged typing, and overall it feels like I'm using an ancient PC. Is there any way to flatten these images. I know saving as 97-2003 doc does this, but all of my equations blur, and everything just doesn't look good. I end up converting to PDF instead of 97-2003 format and printing that.

So other than just removing the graphs for the time being, or taking a screenshot, cropping and pasting back in, is there anyway to flatten these so they just turn into an image?


Answer:Flatten Excel Graph in Word? (Office 2007)

probably because pasting the graphs from Excel to word embeds an excel object into word (thus you can edit inside of word)

if you go edit->paste-special (instead of just paste) you can choose to paste as an image instead

This is a question about the search functions within Microsoft Office Word 2007 and Excel 2007. I want to be able to do searches that would yield both &#8220;e&#8221; and &#8220;é&#8221; in the results of a single search. Right now all I can do is two separate searches.

My OS is Windows Vista. An example of what I'm looking for is a search that would bring up "cafe" and "café". It's probably either a way to ignore accent marks or a way to define searches for "e" as if they were searches for &#8220;e or é&#8221;.

Thanks very much for your help.

I have Office 2007 running on a Windows 7 64 bit Toshiba laptop. I am trying to separate the data and time in an Excel file in one column and put the date in one column and the time in another. I need a "how to" procedure to do that.

Answer:Separating date and time in Excel Office 2007

Excel has formatting for Date and Time.
For column A use a Date format, and for column B use a Time format.
To copy the value from column A to column B a function in column B like this should work
= IF(A1="","",A1)

I'm having a frustrating problem that I'm guessing is going to be easily solved.
I have a user who opens word and excel files directly from a website and has a requirement to fill some details in and then send them via outlook 2007 to recipients.

Up until about a week ago this was no problem... within Word 2007, simply click on the send to mail recipient button and outlook opened and off it went.

After seemingly nothing has changed, Word now wants to open outlook express instead of Outlook 2007. (The default mail program is still Outlook 2007).

Does anyone know the cause of this.

Just recently when trying to format cells etc. after right clicking on the cell the context menu appears and disappears within a few moments. Sometimes there is sufficient time to navigate the menu but most often not. The problem is affecting the ribbon drop downs also and is present in Word. The others I haven't checked as I tend not to use them.
Tried re-booting and running in safe mode but this doesn't help. Tried a different compatibility mode and this works but is rather cumbersome and removes some functionality.
The problem only seems to exist in my profile. I've thought about creating a new profile but the thought of having to copy across all the necessary files rather puts me off.
I was wandering if anybody on here had a better suggestion or easier solution. If I have to create a new user profile I'd like it to have the same name as the original and also all of it's associated programs. Many thanks in advance.
Update: I've now installed MS Office Pro+ 2010 and the problem persists.

Hi all.

I recently upgraded our office to MS Office 2007 SP1 Pro plus.
I generally get people complain about how slow it is, but one issue that some users have got is that the toolbar/ribbon in Excel blanks out when switching between Outlook 2007 (via exchange server 2003) and Excel. Nothing else is open at the time.

The message pops up "Not enough system resources to display completely ".

I have had a look on the web and some have mentioned the size of the spreadsheet.
I was willing to pursue this line of thought, but this morning, someone got it without opening a spreadsheet. He had Outlook open, opened Excel, walked away then came back to the ribbon blanked out.

However, the user has an addin. I will get him to try and open Excel with the addin disabled.

The machines vary in specs, but this person has a brand new HP 2.4GHz Core 2 duo/2GB ram 150GB HDD. Another has a new HP laptop, and the same specs.

Can anyone shed some light on this?

I am creating a worksheet about financial repayments, where the repayments are irregular.

Say for example the total repayment is £1000 and I put this in cell D1 ( alongside other headers). I am putting the repayments in column C, so the first entry would be in cell C2.

What I want to know is whether or not there is a very (I mean VERY) simple way* to format column D so that any entry in cloumn C will be automatically subtracted from the first figure of £1000 and subsequent running totals and if so will I also be able to format column D as a £ figure (I know how to do that but not with any other formatting)

Yes, I know I sound very lazy (I am), but my maths are poor and it will be a long list, so if I make just one error it will be a load of hassle.

I.e., would there be some documents that I would not be able to open in the older (2003) version of Office?

My main reason for wanting to delete Office 2007 is that when I attempt to open a file my computer tries to open it using Microsoft Office Picture Manager 2007. I am confident that I did not create these documents in the program, but rather in Word 2003. Will deleting Office 2007 solve this issue?

I've got two different spreadsheets in Microsoft Office Excel 2007 that rely quite heavily on graphs. Now, the issue I'm having isn't stopping the practical functions of the spreadsheet, but it is aesthetically frustrating.

Each time I access either spreadsheet, some of my graphs data labels reset their formatting and styles. Approximately 75% of the data labels remain as they were originally formatted, but approximately 25% of them reformat themselves each time. I correct it by formatting them the way I'd prefer, and I re-save, but the next time I open the spreadsheet they've gone back to their default state.

Now, this is only the formatting, not the content of the data label, but it is still frustrating.

Can anyone please give some advise as to how I can fix this?

Hi Mike

What Windows version (including 32/64bit) are you using and what version of Office 2007 as I had seen this with Enterprise version before but not the others?

Was this a new clean install of Office 2007 and its happening each time or just appeared?

Is this happening in the Admin or Limited accounts or both?

This could be a potential as did work on one PC I worked on, that said doesnt work for all

or if this is on Limited User accounts, temporarily change their account details to give them admin rights, then log in on that account, run one/all of the Office apps so that this installer runs, then reboot and log in again to check, if works ok then revert their account back to Limited User.

Hello. I have some .xls files on a cd which I could open fine until yesterday. The files were created on my Acer Aspire 5732Z (Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium system x64 - based pc) using Microsoft Office Excel 97-2003.

Yesterday, I opened the cd on a different laptop (Acer Aspire 5733 64 bit operating system - windows 7 home premium, service pack 1). This laptop opened the files using Microsoft Excel starter 2010. I saved the files back to my cd when I'd finished, then safely ejected the CD using the correct method.

Now when I insert the CD into either pc, it show the CD drive but there are no visible files, so I can't open anything. I tried the error checking tool, but it can't check for errors as it says "windows cannot access the disk".

Can anyone help me open the files please? I have all the files backed up elsewhere, except for the two I worked on yesterday, but I really don't want to have to type them up again unless I absolutely have to as it will take me many hours. Any help would really be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

I'm working on a spreadsheet at the moment which displays a range of cells all containing values referenced from another spreadsheet (within the same workbook). This system works fine.

Every day, the original worksheet is updated. So, it has fields already arranged up until the end of the year. A row for every date. Now, needless to say, rows for dates in the future contain no values, and so when the spreadsheet I am working on now references those cells, it displays "$0.00" (which is correct, given I am dealing with financial figures).

Now, all of that works as expected, however, on the spreadsheet I am working on, all of those figures are displayed in a line graph. This line graph, at todays date, shows an enormous drop given that the fields for the rest of the year all show a zero balance.

What I need to do, is to get the remainder of those fields (every field that says "$0.00") to not display anything at all. So, if the value is $0.00, it would not display a value at all, and therefore not show anything on the graph.

Can someone tell me how I can achieve this? I'm sure it can be done with an "if" statement, but I'm not sure how to structure it.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have a range of values (daily financial figures) that are all made from formulas and external sources (other spreadsheets in the same document). None of these values have been directly entered, and the formulas behind them are quite complex. These values (one in each cell) are all read by a graph - however, for days in the future, the graph violently plummets as it's reading the cell values as "$0.00".

Can someone tell me how I can prevent the graph from showing the "$0.00" values? Is there a way to get it to ignore the cells with that value?

Until recently I was primarily using the W700ds but have nowswitched to the W541.

after I saw a larger file losing KB when saved, I did a test with a file that had not been altered or openedfor over two years. I copied it twiceand added a -1 and a -2 to change the names.The file was a small 832 Kb file.When I opened and saved on the W541 running Windows 7 with Excel 2013,the file saves with 771 Kb.When Iopened the file using the W700 running Windows 7 with Excel 2007, the computeron which it had originally been created, the file saved as 830 Kb.Both saved smaller but the newer computerrunning Excel 2013 was much smaller.Iam seeing these same types of ratios of reduction in size for much larger Excelfiles as well.

My question is regarding MS Office, in particular, Excel 2010 and Excel 2013Our small business is currently using MS Office 2010.One of our guys who's job is to prepare data in Primavera wants to test Primavera in Excel 2013.My questions are: If I install Excel 2013 on his computer, will it show up as a separate entry in Programs and Features?If the testing with Primavera is completed and I want to remove Excel 2013 from the computer, will that affect the existing MS Office 2010 install on the computer?Will current MS Office data be affected by Excel 2013 being removed?Thanks

Answer:Excel / Office 2010 compatability to Excel / Office 2013

As these are two seperate applications, yes you can install office 2013 on the same machine as 2010 as a side by side installation, it will appear as a seperate entry within Programs and Features, so yes you can uninstall it at a later date.

Running Vista Ultimate (32 bit) on HP Media Center Desktop Unit (8100y). Each time system is booted up and Outlook 2007 is accessed for the first time, Microsoft Office 2007 begins to reconfigure itself. Neither canceling of the configuation process nor allowing the process to complete seems to have any apparent effect on subsequent operations.

Performed repair function on the Office application without any discernible effect. Any help in resolving this issue would be truly appreciated!

I have an Excel workbook in which I keep racing records. The data goes back about 5 years and as i have accumulated several hundred thousand records, I have moved much of the historical data onto separate sheets in the workbook so that values for calcs that rely on the historical data can be auto updated.

For current data I use a separare sheet as i was finding that it was takin g a long time to perform calcs when all the data (up to 200,000 rows) was all on the 1 sheet.

I wanted to know if it was possible to convert what i have to Access as it has been suggested that a database would do a better job of handling so much data, rather than Excel. I have moderate knowledge of Excel and have been able to build up the series of formulas for calculations in Excel over the years and have it pretty well doing all the things i want now but I have very little knowledge of Access design so not sure if I can convert and how to do it.

The Excel workbook contains a lot of formula that do calcs on past results and then use those calcs to do predeictive calcs for upcoming races. Because it was very "maths"based to start with, I started off using Excel and it has all grown from there. Is it possible to convert what I have to Access? Is is reasonably able to be done (by a moderate user like me with some expert help)?.
The files i have are too big to attach here, but would be happy to prepare some sheets without much data to show what i am doing and get advice.

Have been trying to follow suggestions from similar posts, but nothing working. Have tried to save as .xls and .csv, as well as trying to 'define names' of the various columns, but nothing allows me to import complete contact into Outlook. Please help, very important to get these contacts into Outlook asap. Thank you

Answer:Issues importing large contact list in Excel 2007 to Outlook 2007

Hi hbsurfer

Try going about it backwards.
Create one Contact in Outlook 2007, then Export that one Contact to a .csv file.
Then you will be able to see the format Outlook 2007 is using and reconfigure your headers in the Excel spreadsheet.
When all headers match, you should be able to Import it. Or copy the excel information to the one contact .csv file and Import that.

Let us know if that works for you or not.

When I now try to open Outlook I receive the following "Cannot open your default email folders. The file C:\User\Maurice\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook\Outlook.pst is not a personal folders file"

I have tried uninstalling and re-installing Office from the original disks a number of times, I have successfully installed this on another Win7 desktop computer partition and it works fine. I have attempted to follow the MS repair online notification for .pst but it doesn't seem to work (or maybe it is me that isn't working). Most frustrating.

My employer just upgraded to Microsoft Office 2007. According to the help files, I should be able to paste Excel charts into Word that update automatically when changes are made to either version.

I am clicking "Link to Excel data" and "Keep source formatting" when using the little popup clipboard to paste a chart into Word. But after closing both files, opening Excel and updating data on the chart, saving and closing Excel and re-opening Word, the chart is not updating with the new information. I can't get it to update by clicking on "refresh data" either.

Does anyone know how this is supposed to work? I was looking forward to being able to update just the Excel file and having it update in all the Word documents where it is pasted.

Our OS is Windows XP Professional, Version 2002, Service Pack 2. My work computer has a Pentium 4, 3 GHz processor and 2 GB of RAM.

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.

Good Evening Everyone,

I have a few questions concerning the Installation of 2010 Office. I know that I have to uninstall Office 2007. I have no clue on how to save or where to save my documents from Office 2007. The documents consist of Word, Excel, Powerpoint and a few various folders. Should I from the Start Menue click on Documents select all and copy. Where should I place this copy? Can It be left on my hard drive? After I install Office 2010 can I then copy the "Document File" and place in Documents. Will all the files end up in the proper place for their programs, Word files go to Word, Excel goes to Excel so on and so forth. Thank you so much for all your help and cooperation. It is greatly appreciated. I hope I described my situation correctly. I look forward to hearing from you.

Answer:2010 Office Professional Plus to Replace 2007 Office Small Business

But you don't have to uninstall Office 2007 to upgrade to 2010. That's the general rule as you can generally upgrade from lower SKUs to higher SKUs (Small Business to Pro Plus). As far as saving your documents, you can really save them wherever you like on your hard drive or on any CD or flash drive if you wish to do so. As far as file types, after 2010 is installed, they should all register properly for their programs so that Word documents open in Word, Excel Documents in Excel, etc.

Though if you have all of you documents already saved within "Documents" or "My Documents" or some other folder you've set aside and you want to uninstall 2007 before upgrading to 2010, the documents themselves will be retained when you uninstall, you just won't be able to really do much with them until you install 2010.

Good Day,

I've often used the Files and Transfer Wizard to move files in the Windows XP environment, including those for people moving from Office 2003 to 2007, however, I've just been asked to move a person from a computer that would result in them moving backwards from Office 2007 to Office 2003; is this possible? What concerns should be considered? Obviously if they have a number of documents saved in the 2007 it could be problematic, though could the compatibility pack offered by Microsoft offset that concern? Thoughts? Thanks.

I recently purchased a HP 530 laptop for our soccer club that came pre installed with Vista. During use of outlook, Excel etc it came up with a message asking for activation key & that we had 20 uses left to enter it (I presumed this was a trial version & activation code to be purchased). After 5-10 uses I decided to install Office 97 which I still had lying around from an old PC. This installed OK but the message was still appearing.

I then uninstalled Office 97 via add/remove programs & then did likewise for anything that mentioned office 2007 (I didn't do the actual uninstalling but am advised there were 4-6 office 2007 variants uninstalled). I then went to load office 97 back in but no go. It goes through the usual install process, enter key, select location to load (prog files/microsoft office) & then select type of install required (typical) & then the features (have selected all & just the basic office install).

Then it goes to the actual install process but just sits there with the bluey/green coloured screen with Microsoft Office 97 written at the top but goes no further.

I have checked add remove programs again & no mentions of office are listed.

I have followed the following fix I was advised about -

By default, Office is installed to C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office. Using My Computer or Windows Explorer, go to that folder. Delete the E... Read more

But, from what I've read, it'll let you gracefully exit the SP2 setup if you started it.

I have Office 2007 on Windows 7.

When I am working on a sheet (or document) the ribbon can become inaccessible, nothing works when I click it (like a 'Not Responding' screen).

If, I switch to another open sheet/doc and then switch back the ribbon is accessible again!

I have uninstalled/reinstalled Office plus SP's twice but the problem persists, and, as is usually the case, this does not happen all the time but enough times for it to be really annoying!

Any ideas?
