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?

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.

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.

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.

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.

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?

Can't Print To Network Printer

I just upgraded my desktop and laptop to windows 7 a week ago. When using vista i was able to print over the network to my hp photosmart c5280 printer. Now, when i attempt to print from my wirelessly connected laptop it appears that it was sent to the printer fine, but nothing ever prints. My desktop is hardwired(usb) to the printer and i can print fine from it. My desktop is ethernet connected to my router and my laptop is wirelessly connected to the network through the router as well. I tried multiple times to connect both systems to a home group and everything appeared fine.

At times however i could only see one system or the other though both were still connected to the home group. I have already installed the windows 7 drivers and software from hp on the desktop and the drivers on the laptop. I can see the printer from my laptop as being shared, however when i print nothing ever actually prints on the printer. I removed both computers from home group and just set up the folders and printer to be shared like in vista however i am still getting the same problem. I ran the troubleshooters on both systems for the printer and network and homegroup and found no problems.

Unable To Connect To Print From Network Printer

After upgrading to windows 7, unable to connect to homegroup & not able to print from network printer. Windows 7 upgrade from vista loses network connectivity to windows xp, and mac osx computers and can't connect wireless network printer. Hi, i have recently upgraded my laptop from windows vista to windows 7. While working in vista i had access via a network named mshome to our other windows xp laptops and 2 macs running osx as well as our network laser printer (lexmark c530dn).

Now my laptop can't see the other laptops or macs but can still print to our network printer, and obviously access the internet. I'm guessing that i'm going to have to setup a new network in order to see our other machines. In addition, i have recently purchased a wireless multifunction inkjet printer (lexmark s400 series). The xp laptops and osx machines can print etc. While my windows 7 laptop won't.

The software is installed, latest drivers downloaded, and the printer status is ready but it won't even print a test page. If anyone could give me some advice about the best way to set up a new workgroup (or reconnect to our old one) and get my new printer working i would be really grateful. As you can imagine, i'm now more than a little frustrated with it.

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 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?

Brother Mfc-425cn Printer Problem To Print On Network

I do have a brother mfc-425cn printer and i cannot get it to print as network printer (which was no problem with windows xp). When installing windows 7 drivers, it has been found correctly and without problems in the network. The whole installation process worked fine. However the printer does not react, when i want to print s. Th. So i did the windows 7 troubleshoot. The following 2 problems are found but cannot be fixed automatically:

1)"printer brother mfc-425 usb printer cannot be contacted over the network" - "not fixed".

2) "problem with wireless adapter or access point" - "detected"

As i said the printer was found in the network without any problems during installation. I also have no problems to access other computers or the router in the network. Internet access is fine. So the whole network seems to work just fine, just the printer does not respond.

Taskbar Aero Peek Not Working On Excel 2007

I'm having problems with aero peek for open windows on the task bar. Functionality works correctly for word 2007 but doesn't work for excel 2007. When you hover over excel icon on taskbar popup correctly show icons for open windows with titles but shows generic icon only - not preview of window. When you move over icon then excel window doesn't popup - only when you click on it.

I've tried using aero peek troubleshooter but doesn't find any problems. I've tried excel advance option for 'show all windows' but this doesn't affect problem either. Any suggestions advice appreciated. (Os windows 7 professional 64 bit - was clean install not upgrade)

Microsoft Word 2007 Styles

I have a few questions in regard to the styles in word 2007. The questions may have the same answer. 1. I have created a multilevel list and i want to apply a certain numbering to a heading in the styles. I was able to record it and save it in a . Dotm file, but after i reopen the .

Dotm file, i lose the shortcut keys i've created. 3. How can i create a style to convert table to paragraph?

Using Contacts For Envelopes In Word 2007

When  using word 2007 in vista i could address an envelope by clicking on the 'address book' icon and selecting the address from my "contacts" when in the "envelopes and labels" box.

Since upgrading to win 7 that 'address book' icon is no longer present and i can find no way to access or use the addresses in my contacts which are still there.

I am not using outlook nor do i have exchange, but i didn't have them prior to the update either.

What is the fix for this?  I am getting really tired of haveing to type in addresses for mailings that i already have on my pc.

Using Word 2007 On Win 7 64-bit Issues

Why can't i move the word 2007 insertion point cursor or highlight text or pictures with the mouse after i type text when using word 2007 on windows 7 64-bit?

Symptoms:

1) the common fixes from the past do not resolve this problem on windows 7 64-bit.

2) when you open an existing word document you are able to use the mouse as usual to move the insertion point cursor to different sections of the document, to select objects (like pictures) within the document, and to highlight existing text as expected. As soon as you type anything new anywhere in the document and push the enter key (or just push the enter key) the mouse can no longer be used to move the insertion point to another location in the document nor can it select text or objects. The arrow and shift keys still allow you to move around the document and select objects.

3) when you create a new document you are able to type normally to add text to the word document. As soon as you type anything in the document and push the enter key (or just push the enter key) the mouse can no longer be used to move the insertion point to another location in the document nor can it select text or objects. The arrow and shift keys still allow you to move around the document and select objects.

4) you can use the mouse to select word menus and buttons on the ribbon bar but you cannot use the mouse on or inside the word document itself once the condition occurs after typing begins. The mouse works fine and as expected in excel and every other application.

5) as soon as any open word document is impacted by the "mouse stopped working" problem, all other open word documents can't use the mouse either until word is closed and you start the tests over again. Solutions that did not work for me: similar symptoms have been reported by others using word 2007 and 2003 on windows 7, vista, and xp but i have not found an acceptable solution to this problem with this system configuration.

It seems related to some kind of uac or permission problem or is 64-bit specific but i am not certain. I have already tried the following: - rerun office suite 2007 sp2 to confirm it was installed. Read more at the forum.

Taskbar Stopped Working For Word 2007

My windows 7 taskbar has been working fine with programs pinned to it and with each pinned icon showing 'recent' and 'pinned' documents. All of a sudden this week, all of my 'recent' and 'pinned' documents disappeared from the word 2007 taskbar icon and it will no longer show anything except the basic 'close this window' and 'unpin this program' commands. Other pinned programs such as excel and adobe continue to work normally and show both 'recent' and 'pinned' documents. I've tried unpinning
And then repining word with no result. Has anyone else experienced this type of problem with the taskbar?

Unable To Send Email From Ms Word 2007

I have windows 7, the latest version of live mail and office 2007 student & home edition.
When i attempt to send a word or excel doc as an attachment (from the word or excel menu), i receive two error messages:

1. "You must log on to ms exchange access your address book". ( I use pop 3 not exchange)
I get the above message the first two times i try to send the doc and the occasionally  on the  third time attaching & sending is successful.
 
2. "There is no e-mail program associated to perform the requested action".

This error message is intermittent.
 
I have searched various sites for a solution but haven't had any luck. I have set live mail as the default e-mail program in ie8 and in default programs and have set live mail associations as well.

Printer Problem - Print Job In Print Queue Is Preventing Other Print Jobs

Cannot print from new laptop to shared printer - "a print job in the print queue is preventing other print jobs from printing". I recently bought a new laptop and want to print to a printer (hp color laserjet 1600) i have shared over the network from a windows 7 (x64) machine. When i try to print from my laptop it stays in the print queue and i have to run the troubleshooter on the host computer to resolve the issue and allow it to print.

If i run the troubleshooter on the laptop it tells me it could not identify the problem while on the host it tells me "a print job in the print queue is preventing other print jobs from printing" and it says it fixed the problem and prints the document but i have to do this every time. I also have this printer added to a laptop and a netbook and they both print the document just fine and have no issues. The laptop i am having the problems is running windows 7 (x64).

Unwanted Research Pane Appearing In Word Office 2007

Unwanted research pane appearing in word (windows 7, office 2007), keyboard then acts strangely, unpredictably, f1 key then doesn't work. Office 2003 was removed before installation of office 2007, and word 2007 seemed ok previous to this. While typing in a windows7 word doc (new office 2007) i suddenly get the research pane appearing on right of screen, un-asked for. Going to the review tab, proofing area shows research button highlighted (never selected by me); my keyboard (microsoft!) Then locks up and behaves strangely and i can't seem to do anything.

I can't find a way to remove or switch of this unwanted intrusion except by shutting down and rebooting but it has happened again and again. Got a 3000 word report to write, going crazy now. No joy with online help - in fact f1 button stops working during these 'turns'. Has anyone got any similar problems, or ideas where to go from here?
