Sounds like you have a background color on that text. You have to remove the shading from those paragraphs. I don't have office 2007 to find the exact function but in 2000 it's in the format menu under borders and shading.

    Try using the format painter. Highlight some text that has no background. Then use the format painter (paint brush) to select the text that has background. The format of the highlighted text should pick-up the format of the non-highlighted text.

    Are you using a different view than the normal view. Maybe your document is just displaying like this. Does the grey background still show up in a print preview or on the printed document?

    It's probaly a view setting you have selected. Try switching the view to normal or print layout view.

    Is no-fill selected in the background option of the format menu when you have highlithed text selected?

    Selecting text with your mouse and pressing CTRL+Space will clear any formatting for that selected text.

One way would be to create a colunn C and use the formula: =COUNTIF(B$2:B$200,A2) in cell C2. Then copy the formula down to C200. (assuming you have 200 entries in B...). This will put a "1" next to every number in Column A that has a match in column B. Then you could put a conditional formula in column A that will highlight the cell if the value in column C is equal to 1. Alternatively you could also simply filter for 1's in column C and then manually highlight the cells that show up in A!

My microsoft not working

To force Compatibility Mode in Word 2007 for even new documents, you may add the CompatMode key to the registry as explained here:

Find the following section in the registry:

In the right panel, right-click and choose New - DWord. Replace New Value #1 with CompatMode

Double-click CompatMode, and replace the 0 with a 1.

Close the registry, then start Word. All document will be editable in compatibility mode now.

You should save the files as .doc, not .docx format as it is not supported by Word 2003. Similar registry settings for Compatibility mode maybe used with Excel and PowerPoint 2007.

preinstalled office is simply a time limited trial version and you have to buy the key to use it. on the other hand, you can download open office ( for free and that will work just as well. all you have to remember is to either set it up to save in microsoft format through the tools>options>load/save section or just choose save as and change the format to micosoft whenever you save the document. setting up the default save feature is probably best, that way you don't forget to do it.
yes, this program does work for ms docs, I use it for my ms created accounts spreadsheets and it handles them without issue.
many people won't use it because it doesn't say microsoft on the label - more fool them!

Microsoft Home and Office Student product key

Your program (ms-office) has been upgraded to Office 2007, and so you are asked for the License key. If you would like to use it, your only means is to uninstall the program and again reinstall your program. And remember if you don't like to upgrade to office 2007, don't install additional upgrades. There's a problem when you open an office 2007 on your previous version, but you can solve it by telling to those who send files to you. Let them save the file in the previous version format, if they save it in the office 2007 format, you'll not be able to open it. The file extension of previous version office is .doc but the new version has .docx, they can still save it in .doc format. You can convert .docx format using converter, but i don't recommend, you might loose formatting. Good luck. Thanks for using FixYa.

Free microsoft word download

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.

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: . You may need to also add the Office compatability pack: .

I hope this helps.
