I have two different program in one PC and when i try to open and word doc by using Ubuntu he ask me to recover the file before opening ... i need help on this matter..


Recovery is offered when a document appears damaged. This can be due to the document not being saved before closing, or if it was created on windows using microsoft office then opened in ubuntu using libre office, or open office.
Once recovered, save in the open document format and this issue should not continue.

How to convert older Office documents to Office 2007 format


The Office 2007 applications such as Word and Excel can open a spreadsheet or a document which is in an older edition of Office. They can open such older version documents in Compatibility Mode. However, if you need to make use of various newer features available in Office 2007, you will have to convert older Office documents to Office 2007 format. The feature to covert older Office documents to Office 2007 format is very useful. For example, you can now utilize 1.1 million rows in the 2007 version of Excel. In the older versions you could only use sixty-five thousand rows. The method to convert older Office documents to Office 2007 format is the same for all applications. Here we are using the example of a Word document of previous version. If you open a Word or Excel document of an older version, you see [Compatibility Mode] as part of the title.
google_protectAndRun("render_ads.js::google_render_ad", google_handleError, google_render_ad);
compatibility-model-excel.jpg Follow these steps to convert older Office documents to Office 2007 format:
Open the Word document which you want to convert into Word 2007 format.
Click on the Microsoft Office button on the top left.
Click on Convert on the left hand side of the menu.
convert-excel.jpg Click on the OK button on the Microsoft Word Office dialog box which appears.
corverting-documents.jpg By clicking on the OK button, the document will be automatically converted into the Word 2007 format. You will notice that now the window does not show [Compatibility Mode] as part of the title bar any longer.

It is possible to secure your private Word 2007 documents. Your private documents can be password protected as well as encrypted in order to rule out the possibility of other people accessing it. You can encrypt Word 2007 documents in a shared location e.g. a home computer or a network folder. You don't have to worry about the sensitive data in your computer any more as you can easily encrypt Word 2007 documents by following these easy steps:

1. Click on the Microsoft Office Button.
2. Select Prepare from the left-hand menu.
3. Click on Encrypt Document from the resulting menu shown on the right.


The Encrypt Document dialog box will appear. Enter a password for the Word document.

set-password.jpg
4. Type in the password once more for confirmation and click on the Ok button.
5. After you press the Ok button, this window will close without asking for further verification. Your Word 2007 document is now successfully encrypted. When you encrypt Word 2007 documents, Microsoft Office automatically saves the document with a 128-bit advanced encryption.


No-one can open this document without entering the password. If anyone clicks on the document to open it, he will be prompted to enter a password.

thanks....

Looking for word document I did not save


The power just went out while you working on an important document you forgot to save.

Do not panic because Microsoft Word comes equipped with a feature that automatically will recover files you did not save.


Typically, this feature works by default.

The program allows you to change how often Word saves your documents and you can adjust the location where Microsoft Word saves these "Auto Recover" files.


Open up Microsoft Word.

Do not click on a file to open the program.

Instead, open the program by double-clicking on the program's icon.


Allow the program to load for a couple of minutes before clicking on anything.


Look on the left side of the screen.

If Microsoft Word recovered the file, a "Document Recovery" task pane will load.


Find the file's date.

Double-click on the file in the "Document Recovery" pane.


This will open the file in Microsoft Word.


Click on the "File Menu" and select "Save As."


Save the document as a ".doc" file type, and type a name for your document in the "File Name" box.


or


Open Microsoft Word to determine if the program auto-recovered your document.

If your software is set to auto-save your document every couple of minutes, when the program is restarted, any document that was not saved prior to closing, may appear in the auto-recover window on the left side of the screen.


Click on your document, and the last-saved file will open.

However, anything you typed after the last auto-save is gone, but at least you haven't lost the entire document.


Search the auto-recover files manually if the auto-recover pane did not appear when you opened MS Word.


Click the Start menu at the bottom of your computer screen, and click "Search." Some operating systems have the search option as a part of the Start menu.


Search for "*.asd" to search for any recovered files.


If you find the file, open Word, and click "Open" in the menu.

Search through all files, and locate the file that ended in .asd. Click "Open" to view your file.


If you are using Word 2002 or 2003, you need to restart your computer after clicking "Open." Re-open Word after your computer re-boots to view the recovered file.


Check your backup files.

If you have the "Always create backup copy" option selected in Word, you may be able to find a backup copy of your document.


Find the location where you last saved the document.

Check for the extension .wbk.


If there aren't any, search your whole computer for files with that extension.

Open your file by clicking "Open" in Word, and search all files for the .wbk extension.

Once you locate the file, click "Open."


Look in the temporary files on your computer.

Complete a search for files that end in the extension .tmp by typing "*.tmp" into the search box.


Narrow the search down to specific dates of when you were working on the document.

If the file does not show up, try searching for the "~*.*" convention.


Some temporary files are in this format instead.

If your document is now in your temporary files, you will need to recover the damaged document.

Search for it within Word.


Click "Open and Repair" when you find it.






Hope this helps

Looking for word document I did not save


Open Microsoft Word if it's not already open.

This may automatically open a list of your recent unsaved files, which with any luck includes the one you're looking for.


If this happens, simply open this document from the list.


Click the blue "File" tab in Word, and then click "Info" on the left side of the screen.


Click the "Manage Versions" icon to bring up a list of options.


Click "Recover Unsaved Documents" from this list. This opens a list of your unsaved documents.


Select the document you're looking for in this list, and then click "Open."

This opens the document, which now has a yellow bar across the top.


Click the "Save As" button in the yellow bar.

Save your document with your desired name to your preferred location.

How to Password Protect And Access a Password-Protected Word Document


How to Password Protect a Microsoft Word Document
If you are working on documents that are important and shouldn’t be changed, then there is a way to password protect them so they cannot be changed except by you. You can also make the documents unavailable to open unless the person has the password as well.

Instructions

Things You’ll Need:

  • A Computer

  • Microsoft Office with Microsoft Word

  • Word Documents

  • General Knowledge of Microsoft Word

Step 1

Open Microsoft Word and open or create the document that you want to password protect.

Step 2

Click on “File” in the toolbar and select “Save As”.

Step 3

Click on the “Tools” menu and select “Security Options”.

Step 4

This will open a “Security Options” window. You may now set a password under the “Password to open” box, “Password to modify” box or both.

Step 5

Once you type in the password of your choosing you can opt to make the file “Read-only” by checking the appropriate box. You may then click “OK” to save your changes and then save your document as usual.

How to Access a Password-Protected Word Document
Accessing a password-protected Microsoft Word document is only possible when you have the correct password that opens the document. Encryption and security levels differ for separate versions of Word. Microsoft 2007 doesn’t offer any solutions to allow a user to retrieve forgotten passwords and Microsoft does not allow its employees to help in retrieving or breaking passwords. If you do not have the correct password for the document, you will be unable to access it.

Instructions

Things You’ll Need:

  • Microsoft Word

  • Document password

Step 1

Navigate to the location on your hard drive where you stored the Word document.

Step 2

Double-click on the document to begin opening it. A separate window will appear that prompts you to enter the document password.

Step 3

Enter the password, which is case-sensitive.

Step 4

Click the “Open” button or hit the “Enter” key. If the password was correct, the document will open. If it was not correct, another window will display advising you the password was incorrect and prompting you to try again.

Tips & Warnings:
Have you ever think of this situation, what if you forget the word password ? does that mean you’ll never regain the data in your word document, of course the answer is not , here is the solution for you to unlock password protection word document without data loss!

that is :Word Password Recovery 5.0, a simple tool for the easiest solution to Word password recovery. It recovers/removes the “Password to Open” and “Password to Edit” for you to view and edit the document freely.
