Question about Microsoft Office 2003 Basic Edition English (s55-00066) for PC

1 Answer

Can no longer find info w/in my saved docs using search function

I am not able to find information contained within my saved documents files as I used to be able to do using the search feature. I have Microsoft Word Office Basic 2003. Now, instead of doing a "search" of my saved files I have to go into each file and open each document and do a "find" from the edit instead. This has become much too time consuming. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Looking for word document I did not save


The power just went out while you working on an important document you forgot to save.

Do not panic because Microsoft Word comes equipped with a feature that automatically will recover files you did not save.


Typically, this feature works by default.

The program allows you to change how often Word saves your documents and you can adjust the location where Microsoft Word saves these "Auto Recover" files.


Open up Microsoft Word.

Do not click on a file to open the program.

Instead, open the program by double-clicking on the program's icon.


Allow the program to load for a couple of minutes before clicking on anything.


Look on the left side of the screen.

If Microsoft Word recovered the file, a "Document Recovery" task pane will load.


Find the file's date.

Double-click on the file in the "Document Recovery" pane.


This will open the file in Microsoft Word.


Click on the "File Menu" and select "Save As."


Save the document as a ".doc" file type, and type a name for your document in the "File Name" box.


or


Open Microsoft Word to determine if the program auto-recovered your document.

If your software is set to auto-save your document every couple of minutes, when the program is restarted, any document that was not saved prior to closing, may appear in the auto-recover window on the left side of the screen.


Click on your document, and the last-saved file will open.

However, anything you typed after the last auto-save is gone, but at least you haven't lost the entire document.


Search the auto-recover files manually if the auto-recover pane did not appear when you opened MS Word.


Click the Start menu at the bottom of your computer screen, and click "Search." Some operating systems have the search option as a part of the Start menu.


Search for "*.asd" to search for any recovered files.


If you find the file, open Word, and click "Open" in the menu.

Search through all files, and locate the file that ended in .asd. Click "Open" to view your file.


If you are using Word 2002 or 2003, you need to restart your computer after clicking "Open." Re-open Word after your computer re-boots to view the recovered file.


Check your backup files.

If you have the "Always create backup copy" option selected in Word, you may be able to find a backup copy of your document.


Find the location where you last saved the document.

Check for the extension .wbk.


If there aren't any, search your whole computer for files with that extension.

Open your file by clicking "Open" in Word, and search all files for the .wbk extension.

Once you locate the file, click "Open."


Look in the temporary files on your computer.

Complete a search for files that end in the extension .tmp by typing "*.tmp" into the search box.


Narrow the search down to specific dates of when you were working on the document.

If the file does not show up, try searching for the "~*.*" convention.


Some temporary files are in this format instead.

If your document is now in your temporary files, you will need to recover the damaged document.

Search for it within Word.


Click "Open and Repair" when you find it.






Hope this helps

Looking for word document I did not save


Open Microsoft Word if it's not already open.

This may automatically open a list of your recent unsaved files, which with any luck includes the one you're looking for.


If this happens, simply open this document from the list.


Click the blue "File" tab in Word, and then click "Info" on the left side of the screen.


Click the "Manage Versions" icon to bring up a list of options.


Click "Recover Unsaved Documents" from this list. This opens a list of your unsaved documents.


Select the document you're looking for in this list, and then click "Open."

This opens the document, which now has a yellow bar across the top.


Click the "Save As" button in the yellow bar.

Save your document with your desired name to your preferred location.

We have windows xp but microsoft 2003 loaded. Files come out as ODT files when we try to open them on another computer Can we convert them to files that can be opened?


It seems you actually have OpenOffice.org installed, not Office 2003. The filetype that it saves as default are ODT files, to solve this:
  1. Open the file on the computer you saved it on, and choose File>Save As.. and select the .doc format.
  2. Or use this site to convert the documents.
  3. To make saving .doc files the default behaviour, open the program, go to Tools>Options, click the Load/Save option on the left, and then General.
  4. In the bottom right, search for "Always save as" and select "Microsoft Word 97/2000/XP"
  5. Refer to this picture: crash91.png

What is the main function of microsoft word?


The most basic function of MS Word is to create a document/file. Once a document has been created, the user may enter data - for example by typing some text. At any point after the document has been created, the user is allowed to save the contents. The document can then be accessed at a later time and modified as necessary. Documents can be printed out at any stage in this process.

Question: can I save word docs to my mp3 player as if it were a flash drive. It has a folder labeled TXT. what is this for


You can use any MP3 player to store information other then a music file on them. Just keep in mind that you may not be able to read them from the player. For example my player will read txt files, but not doc files, so if I wanted to read them from my player, I would need to save in ascii format, as a .txt file. You should be able to export to txt from Word. If you just want to use it like a thumb drive, then any format is acceptable.

I think my operating system needs to be reloaded I had a virus hit and now it doesn't work correctly and i want to save all my file & pictures before anyone works on my computer, how do I start?


If you have a second hard drive inside the pc you can copy them there. Otherwise you'll need to copy to a CD or USB drive. The hard part is going to be figuring out where all your files/pics are located at. You can do a search through windows explorer by extension on the whole C: drive. Ex. search for all *.pdf files for Adobe, all *.jpg for pictures. Also be sure to save your profile as it contains your IE Favorites, My Documents, My Music, etc.

Im using MS 2003... i just both this new pc for my house... my problem now we are using in the office MS 2007... all the my files now i cant open here in my house... i want to download MS 2007 to upgrade...


Office 07 default to 2 new extensions instead of the old .doc extension. 07 uses .docx or .docm (m is for documents containing macros).

If the document is just a standard one, you can go into file save as in 07 and save as.. 2000/03 compatible. 07 then saves the document with a .doc extension (this loses some of the nicer formatting 07 introduces but still looks ok). Then you can open the document at home.

If you cant rename the file as it is locked or something, then go here >

http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/word/HA100444731033.aspx

And download the compatibility pack. This lets you open these .docx/m documents with 2000/03 office.

Problem using OCR with Canon MP610 all-in-one


I got this message too, before I installed an OCR program. It may be that you need to install one (or specify it, if you have one already). With my MP610, an installation disk was included that contained the OmniPage SE program for OCR. When I installed that on my computer, and told MP Navigator (another Canon-supplied program, that controls scanning) to use it as the "Open With" program for OCR, it worked.

Saved document is now lost


I strongly suspect that the files have been saved to a directory that you were not intending to use, hence my suggestions to locate the files.

First option: Open the program (a blank document will do) and select File - Save As . . .

Look at the top of the dialog box and check where the files are being saved to. If the files are there and the location is not where you thought it should be - select the files you want and RIGHT Click these, select copy (for safety) and manouvre to the Folder where you want the documents to be located (use the drop down list at the top of the dialog box) - when you have opened the correct location, Right Click in the opened folder and select Paste.

You will still need to go into the Tools - Options menu in the program and find where files are automatically saved and change this to your desired location. This saves having to check the Save As . . dialog box everytime you want to save a new document.

Second option: Open Windows Explorer (not Internet Explorer) which can be found under the Start Button - All Programs - Accessories. In the Search box either type in the name of the document (if this is known) or just *.doc (or whatever the extension is eg *.xls). Note the "*" is a wild card symbol which means that it will match any and all letters or numbers in any combination and then followed by ".doc". This will find ALL documents that end in ".doc" not just the ones you are looking for!

The first search will only find files in the open Folder that match the query. I'm guessing that your files are not there. Now select Advanced Search and select C:\ to be searched. This will now find ALL files ending in ".doc" on the hard drive.

View the results as "Details". Locate your files (select "name" as the sort order to make this simpler). If you had a new document and just hit the Save button (or selected Save under File), then the files could be named as the first few words of the document - so look for this as well.

In the details section will be the Pathway to the files (eg C:\Samsung\Inprocessor\Drivers\Resume.doc). You can then go to this directory and using Edit - Cut (or Copy) remove the file from there, then open the directory that you want the file to be placed in (eg Documents) and again using Edit - Paste to put the file into that directory.

Good luck.
