Gudpm po im asking about how to open my open offices file again..last feb 15 i open my company pc the file has corrupted... tnx.....


If your company was using MS Office 2003 then you're using MS Office 2007. Make sure you're saving the file in a compatible format. For example, if you've create a report on excel file using MS Excel 2007 then you should save the file in .xls (compatible format) instead of .xlsx (2007 format. In that case you can open your file on both versions. Also when you're saving other office files make sure it's in compatible format.

Writing a document and saving - the document will be saved as .DOCX.

Lose excel formatting when save as it in 97-2003 format


If you are using Excel 2007 and saving your workbooks in the 97-2003 format, you should get a message that appears that will let you know what formatting will not be compatable. If you click ok, then the computer will automatically adjust the formatting to the closest fit for the earlier version to be compatible. Once you save it to an earlier version, then reopen it in excel 2007, you will not get your formatting back.

Microsoft Excel files: File size becomes very big while saving.


Whenever Excel closes unexpectedly, "ghost users" can remain in a "shared" workbook. Excel tracks changes in order to synchronize between users, resulting in huge file sizes. In order to fix the problem click Share Workbook (Review tab, Changes group in 2007 or Tools/Share Workbook in earlier). On the Editing tab see if there are any "Users" using the workbook. If so, remove them by clicking "Remove User." When you save again, the file should be back to normal. Being this is a Microsoft product, I want to re-emphasize the word "should" from my previous sentence...

Is that CD an upgrade version? It will work only with a previously installed Office 2003, maybe. This one is cheaper. The full install version doesn't upgrade the previous one and does install on a PC which never had an Office. 
So, try uninstalling the previous Office and then install. If it doesn't install, then buy a full version of 2007.
