    Did you uninstall any previous versions of Office before installing this version?

    You can try:
    To run a check/scan disk:
    a. Click on Start >> My Computer
    b. Right click on your C drive and choose Properties
    c. Switch to the Tools tab.
    d. You should see an "Error Checking" section with a button saying check now. Click this button.
    e. Check the "Automatically fix..." box and start the scan.
    f. Once it's finished, follow the same steps (2-5) for your D drive too.
    Now you can repair Windows. Easiest way to do this is to reinsert your
    Office CD. Proceed through the setup until you get to screen asking you
    what type of install you would like. There should be an option for
    repair.

How to open Book1.xls file.?


To open an Excel spreadsheet, you need a program that understands the .xls format. You can get the free Excel Viewer from Microsoft: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=10 . This is the latest version and will work with computers running Windows XP through Win7. There is a Mac OSX version available but I'm not sure of the URL. If you have an older OS, you can try searching for an older version of the Viewer.

Another option is to install any office suite that includes a spreadsheet program or just the spreadsheet program. Microsoft sells Office in several versions and you can buy Excel separately. There are several other spreadsheet and office suite software options that will also read Excel files. Open Office and LibreOffice are both free office suites which can read any Excel file. (www.openoffice.org and www.libreoffice.org ) Open Office and LibreOffice have versions that work under almost any OS.

I hope this helps.

How can I open XLSs files that have been sent to me via email I have no trouble in opening pdf files. Thanks.


XLS files are Microsoft Excel spreadsheets. If you don't have MS Office or Excel installed on your computer, Microsoft has a viewer you can download. You can't make any changes to the file, but you'll be able to see what you have been sent. Here's the page at MS where you can find information and the download link for the viewer.

PDF files open with Adobe Reader which is something completely different.

I bought the new laptop with Windows7 genuine but the MS Office keeps on asking me for the key?


Usually when you purchase a new PC from the store, MS OFFICE will give you a 30 or 60 day trial of their software...if your trial period ends, it will no longer allow you to use the software unless you buy an activation key. I can suggest a free alternative to MS office. This software opens MS Office documents and has pretty much every capability that MS has too. For example, at work someone sends you an Excel document filled with info...you can still open that using OPEN OFFICE Calc.

In Open Office...ms word is "Writer", ms excel is "Calc", ms powerpoint is "Impress"...same concept but fully compatible.

Download it and try it out -- www.openoffice.org

No MS Excel is a part of the MS Office suite and comes seperately from some computers. Some brand new computers may come with a trial of the office suite, but not all computers come with office on it.

Ms word, excel, powerpoint wont open anymore


Apparently your Microsoft Office files have been deleted or damaged. Try System Restore first (Open Control Panel, click on 'Performance and Maintenance' then in the left column choose 'System Restore' and follow the directions for "Restore my computer to an earlier time"). If this doesn't help, you'll need to completely re-install Microsoft Office.
