    I, unaware there was a problem with my word program saved my document as usual. When I tried to reopen it later, the document was no longer in text- just symbols. Instead of (.doc) it reads at the end of title  (.docx.) How can I return my document back into readable text?


    Thank-you,
    Katrina

Try this:
1. you may not have user permissions to make changes to the document:
check with the document creator or save the file with a different name so you become the new owner of the new document.
2. check if destination folder has enough room:
if not change the location of the file to be saved.
3. you may be using incorrect characters given the file name when saving the file:
don't use "/" when saving the file.

I can't find my auto saved document


Step 1:
What sort of document IE: word , excell , office ......

Microsoft Word's AutoRecover feature periodically saves your document while you're working in it, even if you forget to save it manually. If you close the document accidentally, Word closes improperly or you unthinkingly write over a document or change something important, this function can save you from losing all your work. Although Word doesn't AutoSave constantly, it might have automatically saved your lost document more recently than you manually saved it. Word 2010 makes this rescue process even easier than earlier versions of Word; it stores all recently AutoSaved versions of your documents under the "File" tab.

Open the document for which you lost information. For example, perhaps you were working in a document that you had previously saved, but then Word closed and you lost your most recent work. Click the "File" tab. Click on the most recently AutoSaved version of the document under the Versions heading, next to the "Manage Versions" icon. An Untitled, Unsaved Document b> Open Microsoft Word. Even if you never saved the document, and you can't find the file on your computer because you never gave it a name, Word might have saved a version of it. Click the "File" tab. Click "Recent" on the left column of the File screen. Click the "Manage Versions" icon at the bottom of the middle column. On the drop-down menu, click "Recover Unsaved Documents." Word presents an Open dialog box, taking you directly to the Unsaved Files folder that Word automatically created. Click on the document that you want to open, then click "Open" at the bottom of the dialog box. Click the "Save As" button on the yellow bar that appears above the document, below the Ribbon; in the pop-up menu, give your document a name, choose its storage location on your computer and click "Save."

How to save your Open/Libre Office documents by default in Microsoft Office...


There are many people out there who are looking for great open source software, and some of you have stumbled upon Open Office or Libre Office. This is a great alternative to Microsoft Office but with one small problem. It is always trying to get you to save in the Open Document format instead of a Microsoft Office format that your friends and coworkers can open and use. Well I am going to show you a solution to this problem!

Open up any of the programs in the Open/Libre Office suite. Once it is open go into the Tools menu and select "options". From there, expand the Load/Save option and then select "general"

10_3_2011_1_43_09_pm.jpg

Near the bottom you will see a heading for "Document Type". Select the dropdown box under that and select "Text Document" and then select the dropdown box under "Always Save as" and then select "Microsoft Word 97/2000/XP". After that go back to the "Document Type" and select "Spreadsheet" and set always save to "Microsoft Excel 97/2000/XP". Lastly Choose "Presentation" and always save as "Microsoft PowerPoint 97/2000/XP". Once you do this hit "OK" and your changes will be saved. From now on everytime you save a Word document, an Excel spreadsheet or a PowerPoint presentation it will by default save as a Microsoft Office format!

Can't save world document in 2010 office


Losing work is great for terrible moods.

There is nothing like spending an hour hammering away at your keyboard making edits to an important document, only to find that you're unable to save it when you're done.


If you're experiencing this issue and Microsoft Word is throwing errors instead of saving your hard work, there is still hope for you.

There's a good chance the file you're working on is read-only.


Saving a new copy will often fix this issue.

If you can't do that, copying the body of a document to another application should do the trick.


Select the "File" tab on the Microsoft Word toolbar. Click "Save As."


Browse to the location you wish to store the file in. Select a format from the "Save as type" drop-down list.


Microsoft Word 2010 will default to the .docx format.


Use "Word 97-2003 Document" to save the file as a .doc file.


Type a name for the file and click "Save."

A new copy of the document will be saved to the location you specified.


Your edits will be included in this new document.

This procedure will get you around read-only permissions.


Use Another Program


Select your Microsoft Work window and press "Ctrl" and "A" simultaneously.

This will highlight the entire document.


Press "Ctrl" and "C" simultaneously to copy the whole document to the Windows clipboard.


Launch an alternate text-editing application.

WordPad and Notepad are included with Windows so they make a logical choice.


Applications like Microsoft Works Word Processor or AbiWord should work as well.

Press "Ctrl and "V" simultaneously to paste your document into the second application.


Click "File" and select "Save As." Select a location, a format and a name for the file and click "Save."


Hope this helps

I have text documents saved, when i open it says microsoft program not responding, i can open it on note pad


Hi gvenkatmd

After typing the document, save it as a word document NOT as a text document. If you save it as a text document Microsoft Word will not open it automatically.
Hope this will work for you.
