I have not found a work around for this error.

Did you try saving to disc? If so, and it didn't work, try a system restore.

Trying to download pictures from office word and get file is not an imaghe

The pictures you saved are contained in a Win document file. You'll need to save them as picture (jpeg) files

1. Open up the document you saved the pictures in
2. Right Click on a Picture (within in document), you should get an option for "Save As Picture"
3. Save the picture in a folder that you can find later.
4. Repeat 1 - 3, for all pictures

Now Sign in to Facebook and Upload the pictures from the folder you saved them in earlier.

Problem with section numbers not being linked in a word document that I'm updating using word 2007. The original document was created with an earlier version of Microsoft word.

When you create or open and edit a (.docx) document in Microsoft Word 2007, the Save As option gives you the opportunity to save it as a the (.doc) document in the formats of older versions of Word.

If it is not already too late, try to recover (using the AutoRecovery function built-into Microsoft Word 2007) , the earliest and most error-free version of the document in question you can recover and then use Save As, rather than Save to make an experimental copy of the document in an older Microsoft Word format.

Another option to consider is to download and install the free Office Suite Application Open Office, which can open, edit and manage many Microsoft Office documents and then copy and paste the most error-free version of the document in question into the appropriate Open Office Program and then see what sort of job the Open Office Word Processor makes of handling the tricky formatting.

For the future, as a general rule, whenever editing any document that contains complex formatting, always remember to start by copying and pasting the text of the original document into a new blank document (remembering to close the original document so you don't accidentally toggle between the two). Then your experiments could be conducted on a copy of the document, rather than the original, enabling you to repeat the method and continue creating experimental copies freely, until you have developed a workable strategy for dealing with the formatting issues.

Furthermore, remember to always use the Save As function, giving the experimental documents distinct and varying names (test.doc1, test.doc2, test.doc3 etc.) so you can keep track of your progress in mastering the formatting issues, then each document you save, is a copy, leaving the original document unchanged and available as a template for further experimentation, if necessary.

MS Office 2007 is available here:

Why not just get Office 2010? Office 2010 has the same great basic layout as 2007, just more features, and you can try it for free:

If you don't like the price of Office 2010, try Open Office:
Open office will open and save documents as .doc (Microsoft documents) so they can be read by Microsoft Office products. Open Office really is a good product, and it is FREE.

Microsoft also has a free online Office (Skydrive):

Sorry, but if you are looking for a free download of Microsoft Office 2007, we are not allowed to provide that info on this site because it is illegal.

In which we can open .docx files

You can open docx extension files only with MS Office 2007. If you wish to open it in earlier versions you have to save it again in compatible mode. Click on File (top left most corner with the logo), Save As, Word 97-2003 Document. Just using Save option will save your document as "docx" and not "doc" document.

Microsoft word 2007

Open Word 2007 and create a new document, then save it and close Word. What happens when you try to reopen the document you just created?
If you still get the error, go to the Office button in the top left corner of your Word screen and click the "Word Options" button at the bottom of the resulting screen. Select Resources and run the Office diagnostics from the link provided. Also make sure you have installed any applicable updates.
