    and check the box that says "Always use the selected program to open
    this kind of file" and click OK.


    Now every time you open that kind of file (.DOC) it will open in Word instead of WordPad.

    My reply:

    Thanks for the above advice, but my office 2003 or 2007 are still not active. I checked in Control Panel as well.
    By right-clicking on a file in Wordpad as you suggested, it did not change to Word.

    I shall not be charged further for this, I hope. My problem is not solved for the money I arranged for. If no further help is offered FREE I shall close my account.

    Hi, perhaps I wasn't clear enough. Where you view your files, either on the desktop or the Start menu or in Windows Explorer, right click on the file that you want to open in Word. When the menu appears, select "Open With." Then click "Choose Program" and browse through the list of programs until you see either Word 2003 or Word 2007. Select it, and then check the box that says "Always use the selected program to open this kind of file" and click OK to close the window.



    Now, when you double click on that file or another file of that type, it will open in the version of Word you selected, rather than in WordPad.

My msword 2003 showing file convertor error in all files my data is v importent pls help me


ARE YOU TRYING TO OPEN WORD 2007 DOCUMENT IN WORD 2003. FOR YOUR INFORMATION, WORD 2003 CANT OPEN DOCUMENTS CREATED IN WORD 2007 FORMAT UNTIL THEY HAVE BEES SAVED IN WORD 2003 FORMAT( YOU GET THIS OPTION IN SAVE AS DIALOG BOX).

You may receive the following error:

Word cannot start the converter mswrd632.wpc
This error is cause because of f the security update for Windows XP, Windows 2000, and Windows Server 2003 on December 8, 2009.
You may experience mail merge issues write files are parsed but no message is shown.
To resolve this issue, an affected user can unregister the mswrd632 converter by editing the registry as follows:
Click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then click OK.

Locate and then click the following registry subkey:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shared Tools\Text Converters\Import\MSWord6.wpc
On the Edit menu, click Delete.
Click Yes.
Exit Registry Editor.

NOTE: For x64 systems above path is slightly changed:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\ CurrentVersion\Applets\Wordpad
This change will effectively unregister the converter and disable it for third-party applications and for Microsoft Office. Microsoft Office will use its own text converters to open these kinds of files.
You can also fix this issue with applying the registry fix, but that is a less secure way according to Microsoft, as this fix actually creates 'AllowConversion' key in the new 'Wordpad' subfolder. (HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Applets\Wordpad)
Download REG fix
There is another way to solve this issue by copying the MSWrd632.wpc file from another computer that doesn't have this issue. Make sure that this file comes from a trusted source on your network. This file can be found on the following path:
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\TextConv






OR DO THIS

Go to Tools > Options > General (Tab) in Word 2003
And check "Confirm Conversion at Open"
When you next try to open the document it will prompt you with a list to convert from. Choose Word 2007 and your document will open.
Have in mind that you will have to unregister mswrd632 first, which is noted above, before you make this changes.
NOTE: If none of this works, please check that your file is not corrupted, or that you or someone else didn't add X at the end of .doc extension or vise versa. This WILL NOT work! You have to convert the document using Office 2007 or 2010.

What is the main function of microsoft word?


The most basic function of MS Word is to create a document/file. Once a document has been created, the user may enter data - for example by typing some text. At any point after the document has been created, the user is allowed to save the contents. The document can then be accessed at a later time and modified as necessary. Documents can be printed out at any stage in this process.

Ok, well you do not need to replace it as such, one usually simply installs Microsoft Office, and this will install Word, & others too, Or, just MS Word, and Associate, the Program with the Document files, so that documents will automatically open suitable documents.

How to read .doc files with windows 7


If you don't have MS Office, Win 7 comes with WordPad (Start, All Programs, Accessories) that will read most .doc files. Other programs, such as OpenOffice Writer, can also read Word documents. The exception may be with the Office 2010 files or some macro-containing Word documents (.docx type extensions). (These may require finding a patch or something for WordPad.)

I hope this helps.

The documents are probably not corrupted, just unassociated file types as you don't have a program that recognizes *.doc file type now that Word is no-longer there. Microsoft Office has a Repair option if you run the Install Disc, or, if you uninstalled the application in the regular manner then you can just install it again without affecting your other office programs by selecting only Word on install.

How to write document and cut and paste it


To write any document, you must have a word processor like MS Word from MS Office. However, if you do not have MS Office installed on your PC, then you can use WordPad. Start->All Programs->Accessories->WordPad. It is the most basic word processor.. Absolutely no frills. Should you want to have one with all the frills and have the power of MSWord and free at that, you must use Open Office which can be downloaded free from www.openoffice.org. It is as powerful as MSOffice and can handle all MSOffice files.

You should probably open it with Wordpad for the least hassle if you want to save the XML document after you altered the premissions in properties.
