    check if you are using the right program to open the file.

    if you are opening from within the program, try copying the location of the file (from explorer) and append the filename.

    or double-click from explorer

I have windows 8.1 desktop. Microsoft works is supposed to autosave my documents every 10 mins. How do I get access to the autosave files?


If you are in Microsoft works already then you are already seeing the saved work. It will only save documents every 10 minutes you are working on. If the program crashes, then you will still have the file, the last time it saved it, when you re-open the file. Since all other files have not been altered they are safe and don't need to be saved.

You can also adjust the saving time options, making it shorter or longer for the time a file needs auto-saving.

When I attempt to open a word document, I get a error message


You made a backup? If yes, then:
Start MSWord.
Click the Microsoft Office Button, and then click Open.
Locate the folder in which you last saved the missing file.
In the Files of type list, click All Files. The backup file usually has the name "Backup of" followed by the name of the missing file.
Click the backup file, and then click Open.

Otherwise it is necessary to try only this way:
DOC Repair Kit is a comprehensive Microsoft Word DOC repair tool with immense potential and an interface that makes the entire procedure a snap. Based on a lightning-fast proprietary core, the program knows how to repair Word DOC files in situations when other tools appear completely helpless.

Open the document and do a "Save as" and make sure the file type is set to .DOT
That will make it a template file.

Hyperlink other document in excel button


The easy way (but labor intensive) is to put the file names in a column (can be any name you want or the pdf file name), right click on a cell, hit insert hyperlink, and in the address field at bottom, put in the file pdf file name. You would have to do this for each of your 100 files.

If you want to automate it, create a column with the directory path name, a 2nd column with the full file names, a 3rd column where you concatenate the two previous columns to create the full path, and then use the hyperlink command to provide the link:


Folder name Filename Concatenated LINK ../excel/ file1.pdf ../excel/file1.pdf file1.pdf ../excel/ file2.pdf ../excel/file2.pdf file2.pdf ../excel/ file3.pdf ../excel/file3.pdf file3.pdf

Here are the formulas behind this:
A B C D Folder name Filename Concatenated LINK ../excel/ file1.pdf =CONCATENATE(A2,B2) =HYPERLINK((C2),B2)
../excel/ file2.pdf =CONCATENATE(A3,B3) =HYPERLINK((C3),B3)
../excel/ file3.pdf =CONCATENATE(A4,B4) =HYPERLINK((C4),B4)
This should work like a charm and the other advantage is that excel won't rename your path locally depending on weather a file is open or not).

What is file format not supported


A file extension, also called a filename extension, is the suffix at the end of a filename, which indicates what kind of file it is. For example, you can tell that the file "computer.jpg" is a JPEG image file, based on the ".jpg" file extension. Similarly, you can tell that "readme.txt" is a text document and "document.docx" is a Microsoft Word document. Knowing what extensions common file types use can be helpful.

Have a .dat file of office 2007. Need to open it as .PPT file.


In your Windows Explorer Go to
Tools-->Folder Option-->View--> uncheck "Hide Extension fro known File Types"

Now get back to your file.
You'll notice a .dat at the end of the file name. just rename it as .ppt
ex--> filename.dat filename.ppt

Hope It Solved Your Problem
Good Day

Cannot Open Excel 2000 File.


I presume you are trying to open the document using the Recently Opened file list in Excel's "File" menu. If so, use the "Open" entry in the "File" menu instead and navigate to the pen drive from there - it may be that the drive letter has changed. Another possibility: use Windows Explorer (which can be accessed by double clicking on My Computer) to copy the file from the pen drive to the desktop and open it from there by double clicking on it. If that still doesn't work (but the copy worked OK) then right click on the file, click on "Properties" and see if the Read Only box is checked. If so, uncheck it.

And yet another possibility: after closing the file, did you pull the pen drive from the PC without telling Windows to eject it first? If you just remove the drive too quickly, without ejecting it first, the file can easily be corrupted.
