Rename all instances of your document template files (Normal.dotm or This will prevent formatting changes, AutoText entries, and macros that are stored in the global template ( or from affecting the behavior of Word and documents that are opened.

Renaming the template lets you quickly determine whether the global template is causing the issue.

When you rename the Normal.dotm template in Word 2007 or the template in Word 2003 and in earlier versions of Word, you reset several options to the default settings. These include custom styles, custom toolbars, macros, and AutoText entries.

I bought the new laptop with Windows7 genuine but the MS Office keeps on asking me for the key?

Usually when you purchase a new PC from the store, MS OFFICE will give you a 30 or 60 day trial of their software...if your trial period ends, it will no longer allow you to use the software unless you buy an activation key. I can suggest a free alternative to MS office. This software opens MS Office documents and has pretty much every capability that MS has too. For example, at work someone sends you an Excel document filled with can still open that using OPEN OFFICE Calc.

In Open word is "Writer", ms excel is "Calc", ms powerpoint is "Impress"...same concept but fully compatible.

Download it and try it out --

I have Microsoft Home and Student 2007 on my laptop. I cannot get a product key # for it? Have tried what was advised, but still nothing? Can u help?

If your are not very particular in using MS office there is a very easy answer. Forget this MS office thing. Download Click the link below

It is absoultely free. And works way better than MS office in my opinion. Honestly,( MS will have to pay me to use it. Not the other way around.) However, it saves a doucment in .odt format instead of your regular .doc format. But there is no need for worry. If you need to send a file to anyone who can only read a .doc file open office provides you the option to save it in .doc format. Which solves the problem if any. Try it once an you may never think of MS office ever. Open office also gives you the option of saving a document directly into PDF format. So any one who recieves it cannot edit it, if you want uneditable documents to be sent to somebody. With MS office you need to buy a new software to achieve this. More money wasted.
Like wise XL/ presentations/database type documents are saved in the open document formats, but open office gives you the option to save all of these in the MS office default formats. Good luck and have fun.

2 Answers computer works on vista but the futura program doesn't respond with it

Depends on how old the "futura program" Vista is a new system it's not compatible with many programs. For example if you save a document with MS Word 2007 and then go home and try to open it with MS Word won't work...or you'll end up with a document full of source data. That help or make sense at all?!?

Im using MS 2003... i just both this new pc for my house... my problem now we are using in the office MS 2007... all the my files now i cant open here in my house... i want to download MS 2007 to upgrade...

Office 07 default to 2 new extensions instead of the old .doc extension. 07 uses .docx or .docm (m is for documents containing macros).

If the document is just a standard one, you can go into file save as in 07 and save as.. 2000/03 compatible. 07 then saves the document with a .doc extension (this loses some of the nicer formatting 07 introduces but still looks ok). Then you can open the document at home.

If you cant rename the file as it is locked or something, then go here >

And download the compatibility pack. This lets you open these .docx/m documents with 2000/03 office.

Creating Mailing Labels in MS Word 2000

It could be that the file you're using as a data source is too large, causing Windows to exceed the limits of your computer's RAM. Try extracting just the data you need from the spreadsheet into a MS Word 2000 table, and save that document as a separate Word document (your new data source).
