Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional for PC

1 Answer

How can I change work written in Microsoft Word Office and put on a CD so that it can be opened up on a MAC computer? I have written two books about my life. One is based on my life from 1929 to 1984 and is in 5 parts. The second book is from 1984 to 2000. Both are on one CD which I have sent to London, Ontario Canada, for a relative. She has a Mac and cannot open it all up - only Book1 parts 2 to 5. Book 2 will not open at all. It does not seem logical. I checked that it all came out OK on both my computer and on a lap top before sending it.

    I had already got an 'RTF save' on Bk1 part 1 on a previous occasion so I guess that will probably transfer OK. There are 40 pages in that.

    Book 2 has 268 pages in all and 'RTF save' would not save. I was told that 'the network or path where you are trying to save this document is unavailable'. There were several other possibles on the list ie
    Word Document, Macro-enabled Document (where I found RTF), Single File Web Page, Web page,
    Web page filtered, RTF (it would not save), Plain text, Word XML, Word 2003XML, Word 6-9, Word 7 and Word 97-2003.
    Can I use any of those? Thanks very much for the previous suggestion anway.

The two of you may be running different versions of Microsoft Word,
with you having created some documents in a "newer" version than she is using.

The solution: open each document, and click "File" and then "Save As".
Under the "file name" input-area, there is a "save as type" pull-down.
Choose "rich text format". Save the file.

The "RTF" ("rich text format") was designed to be _highly_ portable,
without losing the text-formatting that you have done,
and she should have no problems with reading RTF files into Word.

Need a book on Microsoft Office Word 2010

Microsoft does not supply written manuals with its software. It has not done this for years. There are book available, both electronic and paper, that can be purchased from retailers. Some may be written by Microsoft, but most are produced by others looking to cash in on the user's lack of knowledge of the software. Don't count on anything free however, as the tutorial marketplace is a lucrative business.

I tried moving my word application to my desktop and now when I go to open it a error comes up that says that there was a problem opening word and it tells me to reinstall the program. I put in my office...

That's actually a normal problem. You don't need to reinstall Office Mac 2008. What you need to do is to put the the Microsoft Word icon from your Desktop back to Applications Folder. To create a shortcut on your Desktop, go to Applications folder, Right Click(Ctrl+Click) on Microsoft Word then choose Make Alias. Just drag the Microsoft Word Alias to your Desktop. From Desktop you will have Word as a shorcut icon without any problem. If the issue will not be resolved then you need to uninstall then reinstall Office. Here's the steps:

] > Macintosh HD\Applications
* Remove Microsoft Office 2008
] > Macintosh HD\Users\<username>\Library\Application Support\Microsoft
* remove folder called Microsoft
] > Macintosh HD\Users\<username>\Library\Caches
* remove all Microsoft related files
] > Macintosh HD\Users\<username>\Library
* remove Microsoft Folder
] > Macintosh HD\Users\<username>\Library\Preferences
* remove all the ([....].plist files)
] > Macintosh HD\Users\<username>\Library\Preferences
* remove Microsoft folder
] > Macintosh HD\Library\Receipts\Remove all Office 2008.pkg files
] > Delete Microsoft Office shortcuts from Dock
] > Restart
] > Install Office 2008
> Manual Install Updates

I hope this Helps! :)

I am trying to download a free trial copy of M.S office 2007

This is not my work. I simply complied the work of others for your convenience.

DOWNLOAD LINK: or Direct download:
Note, this Second Edition DOES NOT make any changes to Office 2007 (see below).  This is a full version of Microsoft Office 2007 (US English Only) packed into a CD image (.uif) containing:  * Microsoft Office  Enterprise 2007 -  Access 2007 -  Excel 2007 -  Groove 2007 -  InfoPath 2007 -  OneNote 2007 -  Outlook 2007 -  PowerPoint 2007 -  Publisher 2007 -  Word 2007 ^  Microsoft Office Visio Professional 2007 ^  Microsoft Office Project 2007 ^  Microsoft Expression Web (new FrontPage) *  The "Make Office Genuine" Registry Entities only works for Office Enterprise. ^ You will not be able to do Genuine Updates from Office Update if Viso, Project, or Frontpage are installed. The serials are written in by the launcher application, if there are problems they're also in the readme file inside the CD image. All the products don't need activation, therefore you do not need a keygen, this is not a trial, it lasts forever. Windows Update does work with this Microsoft Office 2007, but if you want to do "Genuine Office Updates," you need to use the Registry Pack for Office 2007 to make Office truly genuine. SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS: Windows XP SP2 or later (Vista compatible) (64-bit compatible with limitations) Processor: 500Mhz RAM: 256MB Disk Space: ~2GB Install Notes: Please burn file with MagicISO or Mount as a CD with MagiDisk For support with Microsoft Office 2007 visit Second Edition: *Launcher updated v1.2 - Increased chances of serials being inserted by launcher - Version number in launcher *Launcher.ahk changed to Launcher.txt for easier opening. *Registration Entities added -Allows you to make your copy of Office 2007 Enterprise genuine, so you can do official Office updates from Windows/Office Update. -Please read the Informational Readme file under MAKE OFFICE GENUINE for more info. NOTE: This is a compilation of the registry pack and the torrent Microsoft_Office_2007_Complete_Version. This is not my work. I simply complied the work of others for your convenience.

Need microsoft office for mac

Mr Gates and crew are quite stingy about their programs so you should get your disks back from whomever you gave them to. Or bite the bullet again and make another purchase.

Alternately you could get Open Office.
