Question about Microsoft Office Professional 2007 Full Version for PC

2 Answers

File types Greetings... I've just installed Office 2007 and I find that Word won't recognise some file extensions. The one I need specifically is .rtf. I am a writer and have thousands of Word documents saved as .rtf files, but since loading Office 2007 they have disappeared. Help, please? John

    If I use the Open File option in Word I do not get an option to specify .rtf files.

    Where does one find those two tools? I've looked at the programme vis the Start Menu but there's nothing remotely like those names.

    Solution #1:

    If I use the Open File option in Word I am not offered an option for .rtf files.



    Solution #2:

    I have no idea where to find those tools. I've looked at the programme list in the Start menu, but there's nothing like that in there.

The .rtf files are of the form Rich Text Format and should be available as input files without any trouble. By default, these are not included. If you use the file-open option, select the RTF filetype when the selection box appears and you should be able to view the available .rtf files.

This file format is blocked by the OFFICE 2007
You can configure block file format settings by using the Office Customization Tool (OCT) or the Group Policy Object Editor

Problems with .docx files


For infomration on Office 2007 .DOCX file format, refer to http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/word/HA100444731033.aspx

I use Office 2003, and have installed and currently employ the "Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack for 2007 Office Word, Excel and PowerPoint File Formats" mentioned in article. This is, for the most part, seamless when reading in Office 2007 .DOCX or .PPTX files, for examples, in Office 2003.

Otherwise, in Office 2007, you can change and set your Word Options so that you can save files in a specific format, including a previous Office version to ensure compatibility.
See http://www.mydigitallife.info/2008/11/25/how-to-change-default-file-saving-format-from-docx-to-doc-in-word-2007/

Hope this makes sense... Good Luck!

All words file are automatically open in powerpoint or unable to read


You need to make sure that the file type is set to open as a *.doc (Office 97 - 2003) or *.docx (Office 2007) Open up your 'My Documents' folder and then go to 'Tools' then 'Folder Options', then click on the 'File Type' tab. Scroll down until you see the file extentions for Word ( DOC or DOCX). When you click on them, you will be able to change what they open with.
