You mean it was password protected when it was created, right? You have to enter the correct password to be able to view it.

Make sure the upper case/lower case is correct. For example, Apple is different from apple. Also, make for the password you are not mixing up a letter "l" and a number "1" or a letter "O" from a number "0".

Hope that helps,

Format pdf file into readale text file so that I can print it to answer Na QUETIONS


Not sure why you want to convert PDF to text.
Try to highlight the text in the PDF, copy and past into another document. Otherwise search the Internet for a PDF to text converter. There are some but hard to find one for free. Also, beware of free software.
The problem is that PDF documents were made so they can be viewed on any platform with any computer and still look the same and there is security built into PDF documents so they cannot be converted.

How to avoid viruses in Emails.


Dealing with the ever-growing onslaught of spam is bad enough, but our Inboxes are also under siege from another threat: viruses and Trojan horse programs disguised as legitimate message attachments, often from someone you know. When you open the attachment, the virus infects your computer, and then, behind the scenes, it uses Outlook to send virus laden messages to people in your Contacts folder.
You can avoid getting infected by one of these viruses by implementing a few commonsense procedures:
· Never open an attachment that comes from someone you don’t know.
· Even if you know the sender, if the attachment isn’t something you expect to receive, assume the sender’s system is infected. Write back and confirm that the sender sent the message.

Some viruses come packaged as scripts that are hidden within messages that use the HTML format. This means that the virus can run as soon as you view the message! If a message looks suspicious, don’t open it, just delete it. (Note that you need to turn off Outlook Reading pane before deleting the message. Otherwise, when you highlight the message, it displays in the Reading pane and sets off the virus. Select View>> Reading Pane>> Off.)
Install a top-of-the-line antivirus program, particularly one that checks incoming email. Also be sure to keep your antivirus program’s virus list up-to-date.
In addition to these general procedures, Outlook also comes with its own set of virus-protection features. For example, Outlook automatically disables certain types of attachments, such as executable files. However, if you want to ratchet up the security level in Outlook, you need to switch to a diet of plain text. That is, you need to tell Outlook to ignore HTML and Rich Text formatting and, instead, display all your messages using text with no special fonts, colors, HTML tags, images, backgrounds, or sounds: just simple, unadorned text where no virus or other malicious content can hide. Here are the steps to follow:


1. Choose Tools, Trust Center to open the Trust Center dialog box.
2. Click E-mail Security.
3. Click to activate the Read All Standard Mail in Plain Text check box.
4. Click OK.

When you receive an HTML or rich text message, Outlook converts the message to plain text when you view it either in the Reading pane or in its own window. The Information pane also includes the following message:

“This message was converted to plain text.”

Can't read code


hi, hope this helps:
If all the text appears garbled or as question marks, then Microsoft Word may not have accurately detected the encoding standard of text in the file. As a result, Word may have used the wrong encoding standard.
To have Word use an encoding standard you select:
  1. On the Tools menu, click Options, and then click the General tab.
  2. Select the Confirm conversion at Open check box.
  3. Close and then reopen the encoded file.
  4. In the Convert File dialog box, select Encoded Text.
  5. In the File Conversion dialog box, select Other encoding, and then select the encoding standard you want from the list.You can preview the text in the Preview area to check whether it makes sense in the encoding standard you selected.
If almost all the text looks the same (for example, all boxes or all dots), the required font may not be installed. You can install additional fonts by running the Microsoft Office Setup program again. On the Advanced Customization screen in the Setup program, expand Office Shared Features, and then expand International Support. Select the font you need, click the arrow next to your selection, and then click Run from My Computer.

If the PDF is open to all users, you can just press Ctrl+C to copy the selected text from PDF and press Ctrl+V to paste the text to Word document. This is the easiest way to create PDF to Word, but what if you need to convert thousands of pages PDF files to Word document? Your fingers must be exhausted. What is worst, if the PDF file contained complicated layouts, you will not keep the format as they looked in PDF files. So this method is only for those who want to convert a few pages PDF to Word, and they are text based PDF files. Then you can edit PDF in Word without any problems.

2. Change PDF to Word automatically

If you need to change PDF to Word automatically, there are some useful PDF to Word Converters available in the market.Take Advanced PDF To Word 5.0 as example to show you how to convert PDF to word document.

Encoded email


Hi Charlie,

Yes, you cannot just open a .pdf file (Adobe format) by opening it as a text file. It will look like a bunch of strange characters if you try to open it on Notepad or Word.

Did you reboot your computer after installing Adobe Acrobat Reader? After installation any .pdf files will be opened automatically by Adobe Reader, but only after your computer is restarted.

Also, if you look in your email on the list of files attached, the file should have a name ending in .pdf. That's how the system recognizes it as an Adobe Acrobat file. If it doesn't have the correct extension, you'll need to save it and change the file type. The way you do that depends on which Windows you have an if you're hiding the extension type (which is the default setting).

Worstcase, you can just have your friend open it and print it for you.

By the way, I wish you hadn't rated my answer as "Inappropriate". I got a score of 40/100 instead of 70/100 for a "Thanks for Trying"... :-( Anyway, hope that helps you out.

How do i use omnipage pro 14 (software) to OCR a .pdf file and extract data to an excell format file?


By the way, if you can get Omnipage to convert it into a csv file it will import into excell as long as the end of line is marked. You might be able to write a VB script to get it to mark it if it doesn't.

Printing from e-mail


The problem you are having is caused because you are printing from a web based email and just clicking print prints the email, the frame and all the advertising on the page.

to avoid this try the following:

1. Doubleclick the email to open it, not just use a preview pane.
2. Highlight just the text that you want to print. (You can click the cursor at the beginning of the text, hold down the CNTL Key and then press down arrow till all lines of text you want are highlighted)
3. Click FILE, PRINT on the browser menu (DO NOT CLICK THE PRINT ICON)
4. A Print window should appear, in the PRINT RANGE section, click SELECTION, then click OK. At this time, only the text you selected should print.
