Having an issue formatting an outline in Microsoft Word 2003

Hi,

I have created a very detailed outline and also a document map using Microsoft Word 2003. Each section of the outline has many indents. For the first few sections of the outline the indents flow correctly, but when the outline gets to a certain point and the indents should start over since I have created a new section of the outline, the same numbering from the previous section continues into the new section and I cannot figure out how to get the numbering for the outline to work correctly (I have figured out how to fix this problem manually by right clicking and choosing restart numbering, but the outline is 55 pages long and it would take forever to fix this manually as the outline is very detailed and has many sections). If possible, I can send the document I am working with so someone can see the problem.

Thank you for your help!

    Are you inserting a section break at, for example, Level 5 and wanting the Level 5 numbering to start over at one. That way it would read Level 1, level 2, level 3, level 4, level 5-1. 5-2. 5-3. 5-4. 5-5. (section break) 5-1. 5-2. 5-3. etc.?

Are you using styles? You could create a new style based on the existing style that has "Start at" and "1" as one of it's attributes. Then whenever you need to restart numbering, just apply the new style. Reply if you need help with styles

Problem with section numbers not being linked in a word document that I'm updating using word 2007. The original document was created with an earlier version of Microsoft word.


When you create or open and edit a (.docx) document in Microsoft Word 2007, the Save As option gives you the opportunity to save it as a the (.doc) document in the formats of older versions of Word.

If it is not already too late, try to recover (using the AutoRecovery function built-into Microsoft Word 2007) , the earliest and most error-free version of the document in question you can recover and then use Save As, rather than Save to make an experimental copy of the document in an older Microsoft Word format.

Another option to consider is to download and install the free Office Suite Application Open Office, which can open, edit and manage many Microsoft Office documents and then copy and paste the most error-free version of the document in question into the appropriate Open Office Program and then see what sort of job the Open Office Word Processor makes of handling the tricky formatting.

For the future, as a general rule, whenever editing any document that contains complex formatting, always remember to start by copying and pasting the text of the original document into a new blank document (remembering to close the original document so you don't accidentally toggle between the two). Then your experiments could be conducted on a copy of the document, rather than the original, enabling you to repeat the method and continue creating experimental copies freely, until you have developed a workable strategy for dealing with the formatting issues.

Furthermore, remember to always use the Save As function, giving the experimental documents distinct and varying names (test.doc1, test.doc2, test.doc3 etc.) so you can keep track of your progress in mastering the formatting issues, then each document you save, is a copy, leaving the original document unchanged and available as a template for further experimentation, if necessary.

My msword 2003 showing file convertor error in all files my data is v importent pls help me


ARE YOU TRYING TO OPEN WORD 2007 DOCUMENT IN WORD 2003. FOR YOUR INFORMATION, WORD 2003 CANT OPEN DOCUMENTS CREATED IN WORD 2007 FORMAT UNTIL THEY HAVE BEES SAVED IN WORD 2003 FORMAT( YOU GET THIS OPTION IN SAVE AS DIALOG BOX).

You may receive the following error:

Word cannot start the converter mswrd632.wpc
This error is cause because of f the security update for Windows XP, Windows 2000, and Windows Server 2003 on December 8, 2009.
You may experience mail merge issues write files are parsed but no message is shown.
To resolve this issue, an affected user can unregister the mswrd632 converter by editing the registry as follows:
Click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then click OK.

Locate and then click the following registry subkey:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shared Tools\Text Converters\Import\MSWord6.wpc
On the Edit menu, click Delete.
Click Yes.
Exit Registry Editor.

NOTE: For x64 systems above path is slightly changed:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\ CurrentVersion\Applets\Wordpad
This change will effectively unregister the converter and disable it for third-party applications and for Microsoft Office. Microsoft Office will use its own text converters to open these kinds of files.
You can also fix this issue with applying the registry fix, but that is a less secure way according to Microsoft, as this fix actually creates 'AllowConversion' key in the new 'Wordpad' subfolder. (HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Applets\Wordpad)
Download REG fix
There is another way to solve this issue by copying the MSWrd632.wpc file from another computer that doesn't have this issue. Make sure that this file comes from a trusted source on your network. This file can be found on the following path:
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\TextConv






OR DO THIS

Go to Tools > Options > General (Tab) in Word 2003
And check "Confirm Conversion at Open"
When you next try to open the document it will prompt you with a list to convert from. Choose Word 2007 and your document will open.
Have in mind that you will have to unregister mswrd632 first, which is noted above, before you make this changes.
NOTE: If none of this works, please check that your file is not corrupted, or that you or someone else didn't add X at the end of .doc extension or vise versa. This WILL NOT work! You have to convert the document using Office 2007 or 2010.

The File Conversion Format Select the Encoding dialog that make your documents readable text encoding: 1. Windows (Default) 2. MS-Dos 3. other encoding i don't know how can solve this...


Hi,

You have opened a document in Word that it cannot recognise.

If you are opening a file that is not a word document, you will need to right click on it and choose Open With and select the relevant program.

If you are opening a Word document created in a newer version (Office 2007) you will need to download a converter from the Microsoft Office Website: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?familyid=941b3470-3ae9-4aee-8f43-c6bb74cd1466&displaylang=en

Finally, if the document is one that you have created with Word 2003, then it may have become corrupted. You can attempt a repair by opening Word, File>Open Select the document and then where it says "Open", click on the little arro next to it and choose "Open and Repair". If this does not work then it is corrupted beyond repair.

Hope that helps, pls rate the solution

How to open 2007 word document in 2003 word?


Hi there,

Two options.

One. Upgrade to 2007. A bit on the spendy side.

Two. All office products have the ability to Save their documents (etc.) in a format readable by previous versions.

I would ask your friend to open the file, save as a Word 2003 Document and resend the file. No expense, fast, easy.

Best regards
Mike

My self rakesh,using 2007 microsoft word,how to convert the 2007 word format to 2003 format


Convert a document to Office Word 2007 The Word Convert command clears the compatibility options so that the document layout appears as it would if it had been created in Word 2007.
  1. Click the Microsoft Office Button default.aspx?assetid=za100771021033, and then click Convert.
  2. In the Microsoft Office Word dialog box, click OK.
  3. Do one of the following:
    • To replace the original file with a file in the Office Word 2007 file format, click the Microsoft Office Buttondefault.aspx?assetid=za100771021033, and then click Save.
    • To save the original document in its original file format and create another document in the Office Word 2007 file format, click the Microsoft Office Button, click Save As, and then type a new name for the file.
    Note If the original .doc file is saved in a location other than your local drive, Word keeps the original .doc file and creates a new .docx file when you click Convert.

Unable to create pfd with word 2007 document


That is normal, Word 2007 cannot create PDF documents, it can only save files on PDF but, being PDF non his own format, it will lose document format, and may not display pdf.

To create PDF you need the full version (not the free acrobat reader) of adobe acrobat, or a different adobe software (eg illustrator) that manages PDF.
