What type of file is it? You say a CV? Do you mean CSV? Let me know and I can probably help you out =)

    I see what you mean, sorry about the confusion. So when you go into Microsoft word, click on File is there an option for just "open"? I'm not familiar with the "open file to edit" option. Either way, when you get the file via email, try to save it somewhere on your computer (your desktop for example). Go to the file, if you double click on it does it attempt to open it in Word? If not, try to right click on it, go to open or open with and select Microsoft Word from the list it should give you. Are you using outlook as your email program?

    There are a few other things to try if this doesn't work. You are certain you created the file with word originally correct?

    Thanks!

    Oh, yes that's the problem alright, you have MS Word VIEWER which only allows you to view and not edit files.

    The fact that you have 2003 is not the issue, just so you know, if anything 2003 would be more compatible than 2000 =).

    I would suggest you check out open office, it's a free software suite that allows you to edit and save microsoft formatted documents. I believe it's just openoffice.org

    Otherwise you will need a full version of Microsoft Word.

Hi!

Instead of MS Office suite you can use the fully free OPEN OFFICE.ORG.
Please google for openoffice.org and you will get to the download.
It is a suite similar to MS Office, fully compatible with the MS file formats.
It containg among other programs the IMPRESS software similar to POWERPOINT. It offers even more features than POWERPOINT, example: making PDF from presentations.


Hope it helped,

Open them using Google Docs.
You can also download Openoffice from Openoffice.org (free). Both of these should allow you to open and edit the Office 2007 files.

How to download microsoft powerpoint 2003


Paz,
You can not download MS Office components. You can only purchase them, which I suppose you do not want to do. So???
So, forget about MS Office and instead, download Open Office Suite from www.openoffice.org free. Besides being free it is fully compatible with MS Office. You can create/open, edit and save MS Office files in Open Office.
Cheers.

I saved an .odt file from another computer and i can't open it in a 2003 microsoft word. what should i do to open the file?


Hi .odt files will not be opened by MS word as a default. Most likely MS Word does not have the latest service pack. For Windows 2003, download Office 2003 SP2 as a minimum (available from Microsoft)
Download, Install and reboot computer if required.
When PC starts, start up MS Word 2003 which will have SP2 installed.
Locate the ODT file and then double click it. As SP2 for Office 2003 is installed (or MS Word 2003) The file will now open. The formatting might be a little off, but for the most part, all the text will be there and you'll be able to edit and make changes as you see fit.
