Question about Microsoft Office Word 2003 for PC

1 Answer

Word is slow to close. Any ideas?

After several years, my Word program takes about 6 seconds to close. It used to be instantaneous. My Excel (2003) does close immediately. Not the worlds greatest problem, I admit!

If you don't have the product key then unfortunately there's nothing you can do other than buy a new copy of Office 2007. You can however install and use LibreOffice which is an open source and free Office Suite. It supports (can open/import and save) Office 2003/2007/2010 file format as well as MS Works file format.
For more information see:

To download LibreOffice use the following link:

Reduce the size of excel file


Many businesses use Excel to track their data and expenses.
However, you can run into problems when files grow too big.
Try reducing the size of your Excel files in different ways to eliminate your storage problems.
Remove unnecessary graphics and fonts from the Excel file.
Simple report data doesn't need a lot of excess formatting to make it attractive.
If you need to keep different fonts in your file, reduce some of the font sizes you originally used.
Reduce the number of pivot tables you allow in your data analysis.
Run your pivot table wizard when dealing with involved calculations.
When given options to format the file, choose those that allow the data to refresh instead of adding a new table.


Input your data, close the file and save as an Excel (XLS format) file and as an HTML (XML format) file.
To do this, choose "XML Data" in the "Save as type" drop down box.
Change the name of your document as well, so you can tell the difference between the two files.

Open the XML file and save it back into the regular XLS file to create a smaller file than the original.
Again, rename this file, as well as changing its type. This act removes odd programming left from past calculations since the last "save."
Check into file compression software such as OzGrid.
These products exist because you cannot open a file once it gets too big.
Compress the XLS data by compelling the program to recalculate the cells used for your file.

or
Microsoft Excel files can contain thousands of cells filled with data.
When you combine this information with graphics, such as charts and graphs, as well as ever-expanding links to other worksheets, you can end up with an enormous file that takes up precious system space and slows Excel down.
While there are many software programs available that promise to shrink Excel files, there are many ways to reduce the bulk without downloading a new application.

1. Click on any cell in the Excel file you want to reduce.
Open the "Go To" dialog box in Excel 2007 by clicking the "Find" drop-down arrow on the Home tab of the ribbon and selecting "Go To."
In Excel 2003 or earlier, go to the "Edit" menu and select "Go To."
You can also use the keyboard shortcut "Ctrl+G" in any version of Excel.
2. Click the "Special" button on the "Go To" dialog box.
Select "Blanks" and click "OK." Click the "Clear" drop-down in the "Editing" group in Excel 2007 and select "Clear All."
In Excel 2003 or earlier, go to the "Edit" menu, point to "Clear" and select "All." This will clear any blank cells to help reduce the file size.


3. Go to the very last cell containing data in the Excel file.
Select the entire row beneath this cell by clicking the number to the left of it.
Hold "Ctrl+Shift" and then press the down arrow key to select all of the cells beneath this point.

4. Click the "Clear" drop-down in the "Editing" group in Excel 2007 and select "Clear All."
In Excel 2003 or earlier, go to the "Edit" menu, point to "Clear" and select "All."
Select the column to the right of the last cell. Hold "Ctrl+Shift" and then press the right arrow key. Again, select "Clear All."
5. Repeat Steps 1 through 5 for any other Excel files that are linked to the workbook you are trying to reduce.
Save the files and then check the new file size by clicking the "Office Button" in Excel 2007.
Point to "Prepare" and then click on "Properties." In Excel 2003 or earlier, go to the "File" menu and select "Properties."
The file size will be listed on the "General" tab.

LaserJet 5Si printing slow use to be able to hit the print key then the printer would fire away. seems like the printer pauses between pages then prints maybe 3 to 4 pages per minute


Could be software. I have seen the last several Adobe latest version documents take several seconds to print. I have also seen increased print times with MS office 2003 Powerpoint documents.If it is a single page MS Word or Excel document and u are printing several copies of it, you should turn off the collate feature for printing of that document

Microsoft Excel files: File size becomes very big while saving.


Whenever Excel closes unexpectedly, "ghost users" can remain in a "shared" workbook. Excel tracks changes in order to synchronize between users, resulting in huge file sizes. In order to fix the problem click Share Workbook (Review tab, Changes group in 2007 or Tools/Share Workbook in earlier). On the Editing tab see if there are any "Users" using the workbook. If so, remove them by clicking "Remove User." When you save again, the file should be back to normal. Being this is a Microsoft product, I want to re-emphasize the word "should" from my previous sentence...

Mostly the reason for word and excel to be slow is probobly too many application running at the same time or too many documents!
try to close some of the program you are running.
Or you could try to close all applications and start them again. That usually helps

Exel files slowly open


Hi Sahil,

This can be difficult to resolve on the first pass because there is so many things to consider. I have no idea what your experience with excel or computer maintenance is. All my training in industry has told me is go for the "low hanging fruit" first (try the easiest stuff first).
1) When did you last defrag your computer. That can be a fast easy fix. I don't know what your operating system is but you may have a defrag program included as part of the system.
2) How much memory do you have installed and if you have added some did it match what you had installed because memory will run as fast as the slowest stick installed.
3) Any other programs running in the background? My antivirous program is scheduled to scann at specific times when I would normally not be trying to be productive with my favorite programs. I have all the memory installed that I can and if my antivirous program is running and I try to do something else my system tempts me to persue fishing instead of computing just so I could use my machine as a anchor.
4) Do you have an infection of malware to contend with? When has the last time been that you scanned your system for system leaches.
5) was there a specific time that the software slowed down and if so what was done to the system at that time. Can it be undone?
6) Are you the only person on the machine?
7) Just how slow is slow? My machine takes 2 sec to load excel - 5 sec to load a spread sheet that I have been collecting data on stocks for 3 years but is a rocket processing the data and developing the individual graphs that is responding to the macros commands.
So is your expectations of the program realistic?
Investigate your issue and try to reason out what could be going on. Collect more data about your system so I can better guess from wayover here.
Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;}

Microsoft office 2007 Compatibility with 2003


MS 2007 is not compatible with MS 2003....because the program hadn't been created yet when 2003 was released. To rectify the problem, you must use the SAVE AS command in your 2007 and in the box where it says file type, select Excel 2003 spreadsheet. It will then save it to a format that your 2003 Excel can recognize.

Thanks and please take a moment to rate as FixYa. Thank you.
