Re: Problems with saving, saving as, and
Do you have the disk or program ? first go to windows update, it should take you to office 07 update, ideally you would be looking for it to say you needed an office update. I that no happen, go to the office 07 page, and run a diagnostic on it, it will most likely tell you that you have a missing or corrupted file and take 20 minutes or so to repair thr problems you are having. If by chance it is a pirated copy, it isn't going to work, I can send you into a warez site that may be able to help but lets try it this way first. Also on my office suite the first listing is a diagnostic so good luck,Peace,Gym

If your company was using MS Office 2003 then you're using MS Office 2007. Make sure you're saving the file in a compatible format. For example, if you've create a report on excel file using MS Excel 2007 then you should save the file in .xls (compatible format) instead of .xlsx (2007 format. In that case you can open your file on both versions. Also when you're saving other office files make sure it's in compatible format.
Compatibility mode helps users collaborate with those using previous versions of Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. A file created in previous versions of Office, such as .doc, .xls, and .ppt, are fully functional in compatibility mode in the 2007 Office system. Compatibility mode ensures that the 2007 Office system can open and save files in from previous versions of Office without converting them to the new file formats in the 2007 Office system.
Just select "save-as" and save the file in 2007 format.....And when you will open the newly saved file...It won't show "Compatibility mode".
you need to open the file on the same version then save it again but on the version that you need, cause an older version could not open a newer, on the newest you have the option to save files at any version that you need
Based on my experience there are many reasons that this issue may occur. I suggest you try the following suggestions:
* Suggestion 1: Clear Temp folders ====================== 1. Click Start>Programs>Accessories>Disk Cleanup 2. Clear your Temporary Internet files and temp files. 3. Restart the PC. 4. Copy your Office 2007 files and folders to a local folder. 5. Double click on the Setup.exe to start the install process.
* Suggestion 2: Check the Environment Variables ==================== I remember I have resolved some similar issues that the users report Office 2007 has failed to install. I have figured out this is caused by the wrong configuration of the user variables. To check it, please follow the steps below:
1. Right click on Computer, and choose Properties 2. In the Tasks list that appears on the left, click Advanced system settings. 3. Click Advanced tab, click Environment Variables. 4. Under User variables for user name, check if TEMP is configured as the following value: "%USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\Temp"
* Suggestion 3: Install under Vista safe mode ====================== Please try to install Office 2007 under Vista safe mode:
1. Restart Windows. 2. At the boot sequence, long press F8 key to invoke startup menu. 3. Choose Safe Mode with network connection on the menu and press Enter. 4. After Windows starts in this mode, install Office 2007 again and see the result.
Hi, If the files were created in a lower version then when you open them in the newer version you are usually asked if you wish to convert them if this does not happen and you wish to retain the file in its earlier version then make sure when you go to save it that you use the "Save As" option instead of "Save" because you must choose the lower version format from the "Save As Type" box underneath the "Filename" box.
Let me know how you go.
