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.

Excel 2003 worksheet slow in 2007


Hi Lee, I have recently experienced the same thing. When Excel 2007 or later opens an Excel 97-2003 .xls file, there are major issues of speed. The file is opened in compatibility mode. The best thing to do would be to open the file, then save as (keep the same name if you like) an Excel 2007 .xlsx document (or .xlsm document if there are macros). Close the file, then reopen it, and the compatibility mode issue will be gone. You can now use the newly saved file as a normal Excel 2007 file. Hope this helped.

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.

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."

I saved word 2003 file in document folder two days before , but today when i opened "FILE CONVERSION" dialog box appear,,,,,now tell me how i open/recover these files


Unfortunately that dialogue box only appears when the document is damaged. We I need to know if you used any external drive before saving it because they are the greatest damagers of these files.

Secondly, make a complete scan (Virus scan) of your computer to avoid any virus blocking its usage.

Also, try to ensure that its the actual document you sent. It could be possible that you are opening a scrap file of the real file, i.e. one which was temporarily left while you were working on the document.

Inform me of any proceeds please.

Copy and paste document


Adobe is a readonly program. There is an Adobe read/write program but very expensive. Check with your IT department to see if they can zip the program to your home computer, if not, any document you want to edit needs to be sent as an attachment in the MS extention you will be using; ie: .doc, .exl, etc.
Save the document on your desktop, with another name and email it to your office. Don't make the changes without changing the name, the changes will not be saved to the original attachment.

Ord 2007 and Vista


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?
