MS Office repair: Go to the "Add and Remove Programs" in your Control panel. Click the "Change" and do the 'repair program' utility. That should fix it, good as new. Be sure to have your INSTALL disk handy (for all Microsoft products).

Please Clarify your Problem, Im assuming from the open office statement that you are having issues opening office files like word in open office, If this so re save the file in office as DOC instead of DOCX Only office opens docx files
This tip is all about the compatibility issues between the Office 2000, Office XP, or Office 2003 with Office 2007. Because all programs in Office 2000, Office XP, or Office 2003 used the old file extensions for its different programs. For example Word 2000 saved files with extension .doc, Excel 2000 with .xls and PowerPoint 2000 with .ppt. but on the other Office 2007 used the new file extensions for its different programs. For example Word 2007 saved files with extension .docx, Excel 2007 with .xlsx and PowerPoint 2007 with .pptx. Now the problem is that when you will try to open Office 2007 files into Office 2000, Office XP, or Office 2003 you will not open the file due to compatibility issues between both office versions (before 2007 and after 2007). Microsoft provides a free compatibility pack to convert Office 2007 documents to the Office 2000, Office XP, or Office 2003 format. There are many third party free converter are available but here we are using Microsoft office compatibility pack.
Please follow the given link to download free Microsoft compatibility pack -
The problem is that your documents were created in older version of ms word now you need to open it up in xp 2007 which is not possible. You need to instal ms 2003 also on your machine so that you can open up older documents
I cannot open a msword doc in regular msword office 2007 with my new samsung galaxy tablet? I did open up pdf's just fine and downloaded them fine as well. But I need to be able to open up word doc's as well. I have quick office on my galaxy tab which is supposed to be compatible. Help please...
Office 2007 will open 2003 word documents. Use open , to the bottom right pick 97-2003 docs, it will show only theses documents. Click open and the document will open. Your Instructor might have Microsoft Works if Document does not ope. The i nstructor should download compatibility software from Microsoft for Office 2007 and load. Then He could use save as a 2007 document.
Hope this helps?
For a free trial version you can try the link below:
However, if you are looking for free office productivity suite, open office would be the easier option, as it is totally free and works as good as or even better than MS office. Try the link below for the same.
Open office does way better than the Home and student MS office version do. Though open office saves in .odt format instead of the .doc format, you can save in .doc format also. If you want to send a document in .doc format to someone who can read only .doc format, this helps. Like wise, you can save in MS office formats for spread sheet or presentations. Open office also give you the option of saving in PDF format, if you want to send a document which is not editable by the recipient. One also will get a great selection of fonts and clip art galleries.
After long hours searching solutions for this, i have finely got back my work and just in time for submission.well my problem occur when using Word 2007 so this is what i have done. :
1. Go to http://converter.tds.lv 2. Upload the docx document of yours and submit the form. 3. The result then will give you the ability to download varius file format. click the .doc file and it will download the file. 4. Open the .doc in Word 2007. 5. In my case i have got all the format and text back (but i found few text format missing/gone. Just a few though.). So it is better than nothing right?
OTHER computers can only open Office documents if they also have the same version of office or a HIGHER (newer) version (backward compatibilitiy)
Office 2007 doc can open ONLY with Office 2007.
Both computers must have Office 2007.
But if you have Office 2007 you can open any OLDER Office doc (Office 2003, Office XP, etc.)
If much older, (Office 95 or earlyier) there is a conversion program to open the older version with a newer version.
"Did your problem get solved? I hope my suggestion helped. Let me know."
Dear jockpsy, i think there is some problem with your file. It seems to me that it has been corrupted. If you can open it for once, try to back up your data as soon as possible. If you can't try to restore your system to an earlier date.
Reinstall new word and rip your files on a cd/dvd. If you are done with virus scan, maybe this is the only solution for this.
