If you mean you have Microsoft Office installed but not the icons to open it, go to start -> control panel -> add remove programs -> Microsoft Offce -> Change. This will bring up the microsoft office setup. Click repair and follow the prompts.

If you mean you cannot open word documents etc. because you do no have Microsoft Office, there is an excellent free office suite called OpenOffice which will give you all the tools necessary to open these files. This can be downloaded from www.openoffice.org

Why do my database files open up in notepad whenever I click it, is this normal? help please...


You have notepad set as your default text reader. If you have Word installed use that as your default. So go in set up your default programs you can do this by going to setup default programs in the start menu when you get there look for your default programs for .doc files etc and set it to open up using Word or whatever Word program you have other than notepad. It will not harm your computer if you open .doc or .txt files using notepad.

If you want a free Word Document for Office files or for writing purposes go to Open Office it is a free word processor Click Here, that does not cost anything and will even open most Microsoft Office documents as well. Thanks for using FixYa! John

When I brought my laptop to the computer shop where it was bought for reformat because it was infected by a virus, and after it was reformatted, the Microsoft office was gone. Now, I can't type or edit any...


Hi Gabriel

If a PC is reformatted uoy must reinstall your Microsoft package to be able to edit or write existing files. You need to reinstall everything.
The guy who did this must tell you the consequences of a reformatting, but he or she did this probably not.

You are in deep trouble now if you dont have the original disk - Microsoft Office installation disk/CD.

If you dont have this you could use the program Open Office.
It is free to use and is compatible with Microsoft Office.
It can be found here http://download.openoffice.org/index.html
Download the program - install it and you are up and running again.

Comment:
The person who have reformattet your PC is amateur. Virus can be removed by using different scanners etc.
I recomend you to install virus protection on your mashine as fast as possible.
You can find virus protection programs which are free to use. Some of the brest programs are AVG or Avast.
Just serach for these programs on the internet and you will find what you need.

You have to own the software. Without a Product Key, you cannot use it

You can use open office, which is free and does everything Microsoft Office does, but it's free! and fully compatible!

Download it here:

Nothing from tech side. In the first view it seems you are having trouble of office 2007 and below crisis. If you ever try to open any file created in software below office 2007 it will give err in 2007.

Can you reinstall this program? Also, check the shortcut by right-clicking on it to make sure it is pointing to the correct executable file on your system.

Do other programs give you the same error?

Does the icon still show the word logo?

Please give me some more information so I can assist you.
