We have several word docs that are the direction inserts for the products we make.They were all created with Word XP and all are formatted to fit to 2 pages.We got 2 new Dell Optiplex pcs last year.No problem.We got 2 new Dell Vostro pcs in April.No problem.We upgraded to Word 2003 in June.There is no problem with the new pcs but on the old pcs, the direction inserts spread to more than 2 pages, a lot more.The pcs are networked and they are all accessing the same files.They all run Windows XP home edition.When you print the doc on the old pc it is evident that the font is a little bigger.Of course we could change the formatting but then, when printed from the new pcs the text would be too small.It’s the same story whether we print to local printer or network printer.

Do your doc open correctly if you open Word first (open Word first, select FILE - OPEN and then the file, the DOC file opens)?
You can also open your word doc with IE or Firefox:
Launch IE, then at the File Menu, choose "Open" and browse to the Word File. You can also try Firefox the same way (or right click the doc and choose open with and find IE)
make sure your text wasn't accidently changed to white-then it would look like a blank page, see if you can highlight the text.
The files may have been saved as Macro enabled docs. Right click on one of the documents, click Save As. Choose Save As a normal doc. The next time you open it, it should open correctly.
The problem is that your documents were created in older version of ms word now you need to open it up in xp 2007 which is not possible. You need to instal ms 2003 also on your machine so that you can open up older documents
I got some possible solutions to this.
1. Upload the file, then view it at Google Docs. You have to download first your doc file, at least to your desktop. On the left pane of you Google Docs page, click "Upload..." button (beside "Create new" button). On the next page, click "Select file to upload", select your file then "Start Upload". Click "back to Google Docs", and view your document.
2. Open the file using notepad. You need to know at least one word from the file and search it (CTRL+F) to skip the unreadable ascii characters.
3. Install a document viewer. You can isntall open-source software like AbiWord or install Microsoft Word.

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.
Office Password Recovery 5.0 allows you to open your password-protected documents, which have been created in Microsoft Word , Excel, PowerPoint and Access In just about 15 seconds the program removes an "open" password and accurately decrypts the content of a document.
Hyperlink as the name suggests, is a connection that links two files or objects with respect to their location.
if the location changes then the link is cut, so it wont function.
if u have moved doc from one pc to another then it's more obvious that the link has broken due to the loaction, though the folder or file which is located in some specific direcotry remains as it is, but it has changed it's properties of address.
a telephone located in your house has a specific number, now if you either change your tel number or change your house then obvioulsy the link is cut so no one can dial in and talk to u.
if you are using microsoft office 2007 then by default it save as docx form..... I suggest you to save this file into the doc 2003 which have a utility in ofice..to convert in doc 2003 format...(because most of the user still using office 2003)
Just go to file option menu and there is option for save as click and save this doc.....(if you find a solution plz rated us)
Save as Office 2003 or XP (or earlier) not as 2007 (which creates a .docx [note the x!] file which is different from a .doc file and which cannot be read by any other program than Office 2007 -which most people do not have)
This is probably your problem.
I have had no problem in saving to .doc and transferring files to other people.
