Do your doc open correctly if you open Word first (open Word first, select FILE - OPEN and then the file, the DOC file opens)?
You can also open your word doc with IE or Firefox:
Launch IE, then at the File Menu, choose "Open" and browse to the Word File. You can also try Firefox the same way (or right click the doc and choose open with and find IE)
make sure your text wasn't accidently changed to white-then it would look like a blank page, see if you can highlight the text.
The files may have been saved as Macro enabled docs. Right click on one of the documents, click Save As. Choose Save As a normal doc. The next time you open it, it should open correctly.
One application I know that could do the same function is CutePDF. You may download and install it for FREE over the internet. Once you successfully install this, PDF conversion will as simple as if you are printing a hardcopy.
I find this a little perplexing too. Without sounding patronising are you sure you are saving it to the same location that you are attempting to open it from?
Something to try.. Excel keeps a record of the last 4 things you were working on in the file menu. Try clicking 'File' then the 2 little down arrows (if they are there) and it should bring up a list of previous documents. Try the last one or 2 and see if either of these are a more up to date version than the one you last worked on. If so in future always choose 'File' - 'Save as' when saving a document and make sure you choose a document path you are sure of.
Where were you saving the old Excel files to: c:\my documents for example. Is your new Excel saving or retrieving documents from the same location? If not, it will look like the old files are gone, when Excel is simply looking in the wrong place.
An installation won't wipe out data files--they're in two different locations. If you do a global wildcard search (*.xls) you will probably find them.
Open the document in word 2007, click file, save as and in the save as dialog box at the very bottom is a field "save as type" Click the down arrow and scroll down to and select Word 6.0/95(*.doc)
In the File Name: field type a new name so that you don't save over your original.
The new file will open in word 2000.
