May I suggest then that you try an alternative office program?

OpenOffice

With OpenOffice you have all the resources you have with MS Office.

1.Anything generated on a computer with OpenOffice, can be used on a computer that has MS Office.

2.Anything generated on a computer that has MS Office, can be used on a computer that has OpenOffice.

There is no learning curve. The format looks Very similar, for one that is used to MS Office. Only the titles of the various programs in OpenOffice are different.

This program is also free. (Don't let the fact that it's free make you think it isn't as good. Some say it's better!)

Here is the main page of OpenOffice,

http://www.openoffice.org/

I would suggest clicking on - I want to learn more about OpenOffice.org, and checking it out for yourself.

    I also use OpenOffice, and have for more than 1 year and a half. Very easy to use. Those files that are generated in MS Word can be opened in OpenOffice.

    (ANYTHING generated on a computer that has MS Office, can be used on a computer that has OpenOffice.
    ANYTHING generated on a computer that has OpenOffice can be used on a computer that has MS Office. I'm not advertising for OpenOffice, either. The program is a Open Source Program, therefore it is FREE!)

Hi there,

As an alternative to the eventual expense of the MS-Office Suite, I'd suggest downloading Open Office from Sun Micro. It does everything MS-Office does (including opening any file MSO can) and it's free.

I've been using it for five months now, it hasn't given me any problems at all. (And, no, I don't work for them)

How can you beat that.

Best regards
Mike

I am trying to fax my resume to potential employers and they have emailed me, stating that they cannot open my resume. My question is I did not buy software Microsoft Word after my trial 60 days and...


The fact that you have not purchased it should not make a difference to a all ready created documents. When the trial expires it makes it so you cannot type new documents. The only explanation I can think of for potential employers not being able to read it is old versions of Word on their end. Microsoft changed file formats from word 97-2003 to 2007-2010. The old version used a .doc extension while newer uses a .docx If the company is still in the stone age of computing this may be the issue.

What I suggest is to convert your word resume into a PDF and send it out that way. PDF is much more universal. There are many websites you can find that will do a free convert of word to PDF.
Goodluck!

You can convert your reports, spreadsheets and any word files into Adobe Portable Document Format (.pdf). There are many free and paid software’s available to convert normal files into .pdf, for example you can download “Universal Converter Software” free trail. Using this converter you can convert your web pages, emails, books any others important documents into .pdf.

Benefits of .PDF
PDF files are platforms independent, for example if you are creating your resume in Microsoft windows, and you obviously wants that your resume look the same on all platforms, whether computer has Mac, Linux and Microsoft windows. PDF is the great way to send your important documents to others in same and secure ways.

PDF can not be modified in text or formatting in new style without your permission. Internet users prefer the .pdf format because they can download it easily in Adobe Reader.
Fellow the given steps to convert word file into PDF.
  • First download the “Universal Converter Software” and install onto your computer.
  • Now open any word document and press the File and then click on Print option to open printer dialog box.
Here select the “Universal Document Converter” from the printer list and press Properties button to select the “Document to PDF, Color, and Multipage” profile.

Now press the Ok button to start the converting process into PDF.

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.

CANNOT OPEN DOCUMENT SENT OR ANY WVM FILES SENT


Files of the 'WMV' (not 'WVM') types should be opened and processed by Microsoft's "W(indows) M(edia) V(ideo) player".

If you have not installed Microsoft Office, nor Microsoft's *free* "Word Viewer" software, then any 'DOC' files cannot be opened/viewed.
Access http://OfficeUpdate.microsoft.com to download the "free" viewers (PowerPoint, Excel, anld Word).

I have works 9 and cannot open files sent to me in *.docm format for word 2007 although I can open excel ok. Help!


This is a special Microsoft Word 2007 format with macros enabled. I'm not sure if Works supports the format at all. (Certainly, when I look at the Microsoft web site, it's not listed as supported on Works 7.0. Nothing newer showed up on their web site.)

Your possible work-arounds: check if Wordpad reads it (it can read .doc files but I haven't tried .docm files), download and install OpenOffice 3.0 (reads Office 2007 files, IIRC), try the Google cloud Word processor (I haven't tried this). If you only need to read the file, the Microsoft Word Viewer is a good bet. Download it here: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=3657ce88-7cfa-457a-9aec-f4f827f20cac&displaylang=en . You may need to also add the Office compatability pack: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=941b3470-3ae9-4aee-8f43-c6bb74cd1466 .

I hope this helps.

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.

Few sites don't allow you to use any of your download manager. download managers speeds up your download by creating multiple download links. These sites allow only one link per IP eg. fixya.com. You will have to go the windows way.
