New Word / Excel Docs Cannot Be Shared


My wife and i both have windows 7 laptops, in past months we could share everything through homegroup, i just tried to open my documents on her laptop through homegroup, [i wanted to share some folders on her laptop ] and they wouldn't open. I noticed that any docs that i created a month ago will open on her laptop, but  any docs i've created in the last month will not open.

The only thing i have changed on my laptop that i'm aware of is "auto recover", i changed it to every 5 minutes. When i try to open one of my doc's on her computer , a message comes up saying " access denied-contact your administrator". I can open and share anything from her laptop on mine through homegroup.

Free Word And Excel

I bought a new computer, running windows 7. Problem is it didn't include any office programs. I would really like to have word and excel, but can't afford to purchase. When i look for a free download, a lot of alternate programs come up. I don't want to download inadequate programs. Does anyone know how to download word and excel for free, or some good alternate programs. I just need to write letters and sometimes make a spreadsheet that an be sorted.

Word And Excel Programs Locked For Editing

Word and excel programs locked for editing. Uninstalled microsoft office trial package as did not realize it was running. Purchased, installed and i thought activated office home and student 2007. Activate key in resources does not do this. Both word and excel are locked for editing.

I have now uninstalled the microsoft office trial package that came with the new computer, as i did not realize that it might be overriding the program. I had purchased, installed and i thought activated office home and student 2007 when i set the computer up. In word, resources, it tells me to activate, but when i click it does not action anything. Diagnostic etc run but to no avail.

File Open Issue With Excel / Word 2007

I am using office 2007 on a windows 7 pc and i find that when opening excel and word files from the explorer window, that the relevant file always opens but sometimes a second excel or word window will open but without any document. So when this happens, i end up with two instances of word or excel - one with the relevant document and a second empty window.

I don't know the cause of this and it is sporadic.could it be due to a bug or a utility which is affecting the software? As far as i can tell, powerpoint and access don't suffer this problem.

This is an irritation rather than a problem but maybe someone can advise.

Cannot Open Or Save Excel / Word Files From Internet

Recently i have not been able to open or save any excel or word files from any website or yahoo e-mail. When i click on the file i get a pop-up asking to save or open and i choose one then i see the file progress, then then nothing. The pop-up closes and no file, opened or saved.

In the past i've been able to open and save both excel and word files but now i can't. I was on the phone for an hour with hp support and they were of no help. They had me delete my cookies disable add-ins and reset ie8, none of that helped. Any ideas? Is this a ms office issue or ie issue?

Word Or Excel (2007) Can't Print To Network Printer

I installed a new pc running windows 7 on an existing network with a shared pinter on one of the xp computers on the network. I'm able to add the network printer and print the test page and can also print from notepad. However attempts to print from word or excel (2007) or a page on the internet all cause the program to "not responding". The print windows comes up with the printer selected as the default printer but hangs when i select print.

I connected another windows 7 pc and got the same results - test page and notepad print ok but not word or excel. Note, i installed the new dell print driver for w7 and also tried the old xp driver - same results. Printer is a dell mfp-3115cn. Any ideas?

How To Search Excel Files?

How do i search for excel files? I've tried searching for *. Xlsx. Ok, that's not supported anymore (apparently) as it returns no results (when there are clearly files with . Xlsx filename extension). So i finally figured out the advanced query syntax is ext: and tried ext:. Xlsx. This also returned no results. For some bizarre reason ext:.docx works but ext:. Xlsx (breifly) shows a message below the search field, "no filter matches"what does that mean?How do i search for excel files?

Security Notice Excel 2007

Trying to refresh an excel report on a network drive. All works fine with win xp pro and office 2003 or 2007. Every windows 7 pc with office 2007 get the same errors. Don't feel that it is an office problem cause 07 works fine with not setup on all the xp machines.

First error i get is: ms office excel security notice. Mo has identified a potential security concern. The operation connects to an external data source. I click ok and this is fine. Second error pops up immediately. Ms office excel. The file could not be accessed. Try one of the following: (all of the following are correct. ) Ms wants me to check folder existence, read-
Only, make sure filename does not contain certain characters, and cannot be more that 218 characters long.

Third error: ms office excel invalid web query      

All i got, any ideas? I know all the errors came from excel but this works fine on all windows xp pro pcs, all we have changes is going with windows 7. I figure that something is checked not allowing to connect to external data sources in windows 7 or some security setting.

Excel Insert Picture Does Not Display

We have 2 identical dell systems, one with xp and one with windows 7, both running office 2007. When i create an excel document on the windows 7 system and use the insert picture option, the document will open on other systems but the picture does not display (just the outline of the box). If i create this same document on the xp system everyone can open the document and see the picture. The file is being saved on a server running windows server 2003. Even systems running windows 2000 can open the xp version of the document. I don't know how to solve this problem other than to downgrade to xp (not a pleasant experience).

Excel Documents Keep Moving On Desktop

I am running windows 7 64-bit, all recent updates installed, but this will probably work on most windows 7 machines. I do not have an english version of windows, but i'll try to explain reproduction. I like my desktop icons to be organized, so i do not use auto arrange. I group icons in my own specific way. The left side of my screen is almost empty. My problem is that when i edit an excel document that resides on the desktop, the icon moves to the default (left side) location of the screen. Here's how:

1. On your desktop, turn off auto arrange. (Right click on desktop -> menu "view" -> item "auto arrange")

2. On your desktop right click somewhere on the right side of the screen and create a new excel document. (Right click on desktop -> menu "new" -> item "microsoft excel-document").

3. Make sure the new document is not on the default location (left side) of the screen. If it is, goto 1 or try to drag it to the right side of the screen.

4. Open the excel document you just created, and save it (with or without editing). (Saving with ctrl+s, so not "saving as. ").

5. View your desktop again by closing or minimizing the excel document. The icon has moved to the default icon location. I have tried this with other documents, but only excel documents seem to be moving.

Excel 2007 Styles Reproducing

I have an excel spreadsheet with many macros and a lot of code automation. Periodically, when i go to use a style, i find that the custom styles menu has dozens, even hundreds of styles in it, with names like normal 1, normal 2, . Normal 5, normal 37. 1, normal 37. 2, etc. I can only delete them one at a time, but after i spend an hour clearing the list, they are back a few days later. What is going on?

I have written much of the vb code in the macros. I have not been able to pinpoint when the styles are being created, but i assume it is someplace in the code. Can anyone help?

Excel Cell Colors Not Showing

Everything was working fine and suddenly i lost web page background colors and colors in excel 2003 cells; however, they do show in print preview. I received a couple microsoft windows 7 updates and a couple evga updates at the time the colors stopped showing. I removed these updates, but that did not fix the problem. Lost driver perhaps? Device manager shows everything is working.

Mouse Gets Stuck Randomly On Excel

At any point in time while switching sheets within an excel spreadsheet, the mouse gets stuck or when i click i get the window with the "close" option that is supposed to appear only when you click on the top bar. The same happened with a logitech mouse, changed to a ms and have the same problem. So far, no help from ms. I reinstalled drivers, changed batteries, click on both buttons at the same time, check usb drivers anything i could find on the web, but no luck. I cannot be the only one having this issue.

Difficult To Locate Excel File

Window 7: it is now more difficult to locate my excel file back when returning from other programs, i just start switching to window 7 from window 2000. I find that when working with many programs running on the desktop together with a few excel files open, it is now more difficult to return back to the last use excel file. One of the reason is that after clicking at the excel button on the task bar, i can see 4 to 5 minimized excel files, and always upon returning i have to search for the file and select the file all over again.

The conventional display of excel file listing only appears when open files are more than 6 or 7. Is there any option for the user to choose the conventional way of file display ? Also can window 7 be modified in such a way when returning it always go to the last use file?

Excel Visual Basic / Macro Editing

Ok, well heres the deal: i want to setup a macro that will change a cell's fill color based on the cell's value. So if its above 50, lets make it green, and if its below, lets make it red. This is in excel here is the code:

-The code starts here -

Sub colorfillfromvalue()
'
' colordesign macro
''
With selection. Interior

If (activecell. Formular1c1 >= "50") then
. Pattern = xlsolid
. Patterncolorindex = xlautomatic
.color = 5287936
. Tintandshade = 0
. Patterntintandshade = 0
End if
If (activecell. Formular1c1 < "50") then
. Pattern = xlsolid
. Patterncolorindex = xlautomatic
.color = 255
. Tintandshade = 0
. Patterntintandshade = 0
End if
End with
End sub

-The code ends here-

A) the fields are limited to double digit numbers. 100 and beyond, 9 and below are all coming out as red.

B) the macro only works for one cell at a time, how can i edit it so a large selection treats all cells separately?

Ie7 Not Handling Excel Files Properly

With ie7 i am at a website where i can export an excel document. I had 2000 installed and didn't have this problem. I now have office 2007 installed and have an issue where it will give me a prompt stating "the file you are trying to open is in a different format than specified. " If i hit yes it will then give me a user login page as though i am just about to login to the website. However, if i hit no, it will prompt the same message again but with a different file name. If i hit yes to that it works fine.

If i try this through firefox, however, i don't have a problem at all which leads me to believe it's an issue with ie. I tried the registry hack to suppress the error message and when i do it'll simply open up an instance of excel with the user/pass dialog boxes asking me to login.

Excel File Url Opens In A New Ie Window

I have a built a website that contains urls to documents. One of the documents is an xsl file if i click on that link, then a new ie page opens with junk in it. It appears like the file is opened but rendered as html. Save as initially shows the file extension to be htm, but when i change that to xsl the download works fine, and the correct file is downloaded and saved.

Right clicking on the hyper-link and going to properties, does recognize it as type: microsoft office excel 97-2003 worksheet i would like the file to open in excel or prompt me to download it. (It happens on clients with ie7 or ie8, xp or vista business)i found http://support.microsoft.com/kb/162059, but that patch returns an error when i try to run it (error 2347).

Security Update For Office Excel 2003

Security update for microsoft office excel 2003 (kb973475) and previously_security update for microsoft office excel 2003 (kb969681) and previously_security update for microsoft office excel 2003 (kb958436) and previously_. Said updates repeatedly attempt to install, which creates a restore point and stalls out the hp6663us running vista ultimate 64 version 6 sp 1 and norton 360 version 3. 8 until the update fails, which frees the laptop until the next time, usually the next day.

I spent hours with hp chat trying to resolve the issue but with no success. Update history shows this has been happening since at least 12/23/08. Other than for turning off microsoft update, how do i keep un-installable updates from wasting my time?

Cannot Get Xp Mode To Shared Printer

I have a dell precision 390 with 4 gig of memory. The printer is an hp 2300d, which is connected to the computer by usb. I am running windows 7 ultimate. I have set up the printer driver in xp mode as described in the "windows virtual pc evaluation guide". However, i cannot get the printer to work in both native windows 7 and xp mode at the same time.

In order to get the printer to work in xp mode, i have to "attach" it. When i do that, it no longer functions under the naive windows 7, until i release it from xp mode.
