A lot of Vista users have run into this problem. From what I can tell...you need to do a system restore.
One suggestion was to change the default printer(?).
Another was to use Open Office, which is free.
Sorry, not a Vista user, wised up after a month.

I have microsoft office 2003. My daughter's school uses microsoft office 2007. Will open office be able to accept microsoft office 2007 and will she be able to work from that?


Hi, Open office shouldn't have any problems with opening files created with Microsoft office, it can read those formats but it wont be able to save with the same format.

Cannot open attachments from emails.


Hi There.
If you can not open attached documents it might be because programs are missing on your computer.
As an example:
for a file xxx.PDF you need a PDF reader installed eg. Adobe Reader.
Can be found here: http://www.adobe.com/downloads/
Download Adobe Reader and install it and you can read PDF files.
If the document is a Microsoft Office document you nee the whole Microsoft Office Package - but this package is not free - must by it.

As an alternative to the Microsoft program you can use Open Office.
Can be found here: www.openoffice.org
This program is compatible to Microsoft Office and it is free to use.

Other type of files need other programs etc.

When an emailing an attachment for an example a resume. They other user can not open the attachment i had sent. How can I get this opened?


The possible causes are two:

1. You are sending out a format which the recipient doesn't support (e.g. OpenOffice). To solve this, install utilities such as PDFPrinter, or export the document as PDF. This is a format which almost anyone can read, even if they can't edit it. Otherwise go for Microsoft Office or, if you use OpenOffice, set it to save as "Microsoft Word Document".

2. The recipient has some kind of security in his/her computer which disables opening of all kinds of attachments, possibly excepting only some "deemed safe" ones. There's not much you can do here. Sending documents in Microsoft Office formats sometimes improves chances they'll be deemed secure.

I cannot open attachments and any attachments I send cannot be opened. I am using Yahoo mail and microsoft works word processor. I have sent word files as well as photoes seperatley.


I would recommend to stop using Microsoft Works, as not everyone has it. Microsoft Word will let you open all Word attachments. Word documents are NOT compatible with Works. If you have a copy of Microsoft Office 2003 or 2007 available, you should install it, otherwise, I would recommend that you buy Microsoft Office 2007.

I cannot print my documents even if there is Microsoft Office Document Imaging?


hi,
open Microsoft Office Document Imaging then opened the Tools menu, then
Options. In the Options window, select the "Other" tab and clicked on the "Reset" button under Default Program.

Then, close Microsoft Office Document Imaging and open windows explorer, navigated to an "*.MDI" file, right clicked it and chose "open with" "choose a program" then browse to the Microsoft Office Document Imaging executable found in the Office folder (don't remember the exact location) and select that executable to open *.MDI files and check the box "always use this program to open this file type".

Now, finally, the "File" menu in Microsoft Office Document Imaging will work

Is it possible to convert a .wps format, to a .pages format?


when at school go to the file "save as" option and you should be able to save the wps document into a word format ( using the drop down menu at the bottom to select microsoft word document ) or something along those lines.

You should then be able to use that in pages and email it back to an email account ( that you have or use ) in a word format or maybe save it as a word document.

The other option would be to download and install open office ( http://www.openoffice.org ) and bring the documents from school to home as a word document as per above and use open office to do what you need to do and save it as a word document again and you should be able to do it that way.

Short of that speak with the IT person and see if they can use open office ( pages is a mac only piece of software from what im aware ) so dont think that will be an option at your school where as open office should be as its free.
