Cannot open saved documents successfully /Word 2003, Vista laptop

Everything appears normal when writing a document in word 2003. I save it without any problems. When I re-open it, I get random letters for about the equivalent of 5 pages, before my text appears, but it will be a mass of words. Margins, punctuation, paragraphs all gone. Just a mess. Have offloaded and reinstalled several times. No difference. EXTREMELY disappointed with HP laptop. HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

After you install the software you need to go to the Microsoft website and download all the necessary updates. I believe that you can now do automatic updates for recent versions of office or word. If 2003 is not included in this then you can manually download the updates. I believe this should fix your problem.

I can't open my docs yet I KNOW they haven't been deleted because I am able to email them. How do I fix this?


MS Word offers several different views in which you can read and work on documents.
The view you are using when you save a document will be the default view when you open that same document the next time.
Likewise, if you open a document created by someone else, the view in which they saved it will be the default for that file unless you change it and save it again.
You can change your default Word template, though, so that new Word documents always open in the view of your choice.

Close any Microsoft Word documents or windows on your computer.
Locate the \"Normal.dot\" file on your computer.
This is the default template for all new Word documents. If you are using Windows XP, navigate to \"c:\\documents and settings\\username\\application data\\Microsoft\\templates\", changing \"username\" to your user name on the computer.
For Windows Vista or Windows 7, go to \"c:\\users\\username\\appdata\\roaming\\Microsoft\\templates\", again, changing the username to your user name on Windows.

Right-click \"Normal.dot\" and select \"Open.\"
A new Word document will open, which is actually the default document template.

Change the view to the one you desire.
To do so in Word 2003, go to the \"View\" menu and click on the view you want to use.
In Word 2007 or 2010, go to the \"View\" tab and select a view.

Type something into the document and then delete it.
This allows Word to recognize that a change has been made to the template without adding any unwanted items.
Click the \"Save\" button or press the \"Ctrl\" and \"S\" keys to save the changes to your default Word template.

How to save a word 2007 document to be compatible with Word 97-2003


If you want to save a document to be compatible to open in word 97-2003 you cannot simply automatically save the document because it will save as a .docx. Therefore you cannot click on the disk icon at the top to save your document.

1: Go to the at the top left corner
2: Choose Save As. Another menu will appear
3: Choose Word 97-2003 Document from the list
4: Choose where to save your file.
5: After the file has been saved as a .doc you can now just press save instead of save as. You can also press on the save symbol (a floppy disk) to automatically save the file now.
Yes you can but you must download a compatibility pack from Microsoft. This will enable you to open Word 2007, PowerPoint 2007, and more in your Office 2003 program. You can also download the free Open office program. It will open .docx files already. Go to the Microsoft website to download Word viewer
And you will also need Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack for Word, Excel, and PowerPoint 2007 File Formats.

Convertor office 2007 file to office 2000 or 2003


There is no need for a converter to convert your Office 2007 document into Office 2003 because right in Office 2007 you can save it as 2003 document so that whenever you open that document into lower version of Office you can still access it without any hassle. But you have to understand that some features that you use in Office 2007 may not appear in the lower versions thus some forms and letter may not be available. See the image below...

I have sent a word document created in vista, and have sent it to an XP user. They cannot open or view the document. How do I change the settings in Vista to resend the document?


You need to make sure that the file extension is correct, for example .doc because there are others that a .docx extension as well. One thing is that make sure whenever you are saving a word document try to save it as Word 97-2003 document, in that way it can open to any other Microsoft Word application without thinking what kind of operating system does the computer have.

Jesus Saves
You should too!
ALWAYS save your files regularly during working on it.
There is an UNDO under the EDIT menu, but that is to late now.
IF you had done ANY 'save" at all, at last resort you could have just exited the program, re-opened the saved file and you would have the file as it was last saved.
Right now you can:
Go to TOOLS, Options, hit the SAVE tab. Tweak as you like.

As far as document recovery now, there is nothing that can be done at this time... except TRYING to have a Document Recovery $peciali$t work on it. How long are you willing to be without your hard drive or computer?
