Question about Microsoft Office 2003 Pro (269-07387) for PC

1 Answer

Word 2003 doc spreads to 3 pages

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.

Any help would be appreciated.

    I did try that. I copied the fonts from the Windows/Fonts folder on the new pc to the old one. It didn't help. Thanks for trying though.

    IT WORKED!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH.

    When I copied them this time, I opend a window for each and selected all the fonts and dragged them to the other window. I had to click OK a bazillion times to the question "This font is already installed. Delete it first to reinstall it" (or something like that). I'm not exactly sure what I did a few months ago when I tried to copy fonts and it didn't work. THANKS!

    THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! I tried copying the fonts a few months ago but I didn't do it correctly (don't remember what I did). This time I opened 2 x Windows Explorer and selected all the fonts and dragged them to the other window. I had to click OK a bazillion times to the question "To replace this font, uninstall it first" (or something like that). IT WORKED!

You probably don't have the same fonts installed on the new machines, and Word is substituting the ones you are using with a close alternative.

    Hi, just copying the fonts is not enough, you must also right click them after putting them in the right directory and choose 'Install Fonts'. Hope this helps, regards -- Joe

Word docs open with a blank page.


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.

This is a tough one

I just got a new computer with Word Pad. I cannot open the attachments that I receive in email that were sent from Word. Is there some solution?


Hi,
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.
Please rate me if this helps.

Date in Word Docs


It is one way or the other. Either, you hard code the date, and it never updates, or use the auto-update.

For your purposes, since the date needs to be hard coded, for compliance, it looks like you'll need to edit the date manually.

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.

Check your properties at the desktop icon to see if the target goes to the doc and adjust accordingly. If there is no target then make one the quickest way is by going to the folder where the doc is and create a shortcut and drag it to the desktop.
