I can't open and read pdf version 8 attachments to e-mails.

I currently have Microsoft Office 2003 but I want to open and read these attachments without buying the latest microsoft programme. Can you help me with a fix - I only want to be able to read & print them, not change or alter them in any way?

If you're trying to read files with the .pdf filename extension, then you don't need any Microsoft software to do it. You need the Adobe Reader (formerly called Acrobat), which is available as a free download from www.adobe.com.

I cannot open an email attachment on microsoft office 2007. what seems to be the problem?


What type of Attachment is it?? If its a .zip, .rar (compressed) folder you may need a software to open this attachment for you. If it is a .Pdf file you will also need a software to open this type of document. I would recommend Peazip (google Peazip and download/Install) to open compressed files from E mail attachments and extract them to a format Microsoft Office will open (assuming they contain files for MS office). For .pdf files I would use Acrobat Reader (google and download/install) Or Foxit Reader (google and download/install). I hope this helps you get what you need. If you have any other questions please feel free to ask.

I am using Microsoft Vista. It works with Microsoft Works. But most of the mail attachments recived cannot be opened since it tells the system is not attached with the required software. Now I thik if I...


You can have both installed at the same time. This will take up a lot more space on your hard drive. Additionally, both programs will want to be the default for many things.

What e-mail program are you using? Can you save the attachment to disc and then open it separately. Some programs are set to not open attachments at all to prevent malware. Check these settings. (It's been awhile since I used Windows Mail. Usually it will be under Attachments in Tools or Options.)

What attachements are causing the problems? Works should read any Office attachment (Excel, Word, etc.) You may need a patch for Office 2010 documents (or the Microsoft Viewer for each program - free from microsoft.com). There are also free alternatives to Office (such as OpenOffice which will read most Office files - 2007 and back). Please note if the problem is related to Outlook (the e-mail program in the higher end versions of Office), the program is not in the Home and Student edition.

However, if the attachments are PDFs, make sure you have Adobe Reader set as the default to read those. In Windows 7, you can set the default Program to open a file in the Control Panel. Start > Control Panel > Programs > Set your default programs.

I hope this helps.

I currently have microsoft office professional 2007 trial version which has expired. If I don't want to order it and just go back to my 2003 version can I just cancel the 2007 version? Will it just convert...


If you still have the installation CD for Microsoft Office 2003 and the key that goes with it, you can un-install the Trial version of Office 2007 and install Office 2003. Files saved Office 2007 format are not redable with Office 2003.

To preserve your files (the ones made with Office 2007) you must go through the following procedure:
  1. Open each file with the application that created it (Word, Excel, Powepoint, or what have you)
  2. If it its a Word 2007 file save it in Word2003 format
  3. If it is an Excel 2007 file save it in the Excel 2003 format.
  4. Etc.
This is only necessary if you intend to modify them at some later time.
If you only want to read (not modify) them you can still do that because Microsoft offers a free Word viewers.

Other free software you can use to open files created with Office 2007 is OpenOffice.org 3. You might lose some formatting but the files will be accessible to you.

I am not able to open any attached file in the incoming mail showing error like documents is damaged. But I can open that in direct mail server please help


If you are unable to open any attached file in your incoming mail and are using Microsoft Office 2007, run registry editor (regedit.exe) and scroll to the following location:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Outlook\Security

Copy the contents of the "OutlookSecureTempFolder" key and paste it in the Windows Explorer to open the OutlookSecureTempFolder. Delete all files in this folder and then run Outlook.

This location can not be browsed to and can only be found from the registry as it is different for all users. e.g. for myself it is as follows:

D:\Users\keekus\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\Content.Outlook\R34DKK8O\

For earlier versions of Microsoft Office, you may find the "OutlookSecureTempFolder" in these locations:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Outlook\Security

or

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\10\Outlook\Security

Open attached files from e-mails


If all you are wanting to do is read or print the email attachments, and they have been written using Word 2003 or Excel 2003, you can go to Microsoft.com and download Word Viewer 2003 and Excel Viewer 2003. These two viewers will allow you to read or print either Word or Excel documents as long as the original composer used Word 2003 or Excel 2003, or some earlier version such as 2000 or XP. To the best of my knowledge, Microsoft has not released a viewer for any of its 2007 programs yet.

However, if you are wanting to compose new documents, or edit the attached documents, you will need to have a copy of the program in question.

There is also one other possibility. You can go to openoffice.org and download a free copy of Open Office. I am not sure if the Open Office Suite is 100% compatible with the Microsoft Office products, but it should be close enough to get you by.

One other thing, if you are receiving .pdf documents, you can go to Adobe.com and download the latest version of Adobe Reader. This is also a free download and will allow you to open, view and print the .pdf documents but, again, in order to edit them you will need a copy of Adobe Acrobat (not free) or some other compatible program such as Open Office (again there may be some slight compatibility issues to deal with).

Hope that helps - Graye

Acer e-mail and encrytion problems


OTHER computers can only open Office documents if they also have the same version of office or a HIGHER (newer) version (backward compatibilitiy)
Office 2007 doc can open ONLY with Office 2007.
Both computers must have Office 2007.

But if you have Office 2007 you can open any OLDER Office doc (Office 2003, Office XP, etc.)
If much older, (Office 95 or earlyier) there is a conversion program to open the older version with a newer version.
