Word Document Save Issue


We recently purchased a windows 7 system and transferred all of our word 2003 documents. I am able to access and edit all of them when they are saved on the desktop or in my documents folder. But, when i open the files that are saved on my "c" drive, the window name has "read-only" in it and i can't go in to edit them. I know this is probably a security setting somewhere (either in the word program or on my "c" drive). But i can't find it.

Restoring To Previous Save Point For Wordpad Document

I was working on a document in wordpad and saved it before going to bed last night. When i re-opened the document today, it was returned to the condition it was in last night before i started working on it. The computer did shut down unexpectedly and when i reopened the file the changes i'd made prior to the shutdown had been recovered. I continued to work, saved my files, and shut down the computer. Please tell me, is it possible to restore the file to atleast the recovery point? I don't understand how the information was lost to begin with.

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?

Save Dialog And Save As Boxes Appear Empty In Programs

Save dialog and save as dialog boxes appear empty in multiple programs. I cant save my work. I click 'save' or 'save as' in dbdesigner4, srcedit, and other programs, and the dialog is empty. The 'favorites', 'ftp', and 'file format' options show up, and the save and cancel buttons at the bottom, but nothing else. I cannot choose a destination directory, name the file to be saved, choose the file type, and when i click save, nothing happens.

Default Save To Location Reg Key / Save As Location To My Documents

Can someone please tell me the reg key that controls where non office documents get saved to by default when you click save. For most things it defaults to my documents, but what controls that. I am not referring to the places bar, rather the location that comes up when the save as dialog box appears. Currently i have users who when they go to save a copy of a pdf or create one using cutepdf writer it is defaulting to a network location that we'd rather they not save to. I want that save as location to be my documents. If i manually navigate to my documents and save and then attempt to save other pdf docs they default to my docs so i know something has to be keeping track of the change. Can someone help?Os is windows 2003 server and we have a citrix environment if that makes any difference.

Document Files Erased

I can't believe that i was so stupid to erase some of my document files, and then i like to have a "clean" recycle bin - so i think i erased and recycled almost half of the document files which hold all my research, document files and other very important and irreplaceable data. I've heard that data isn't really "gone" even if it's been erased. Is this true? And can someone please give me some direction as to how to resurrect my data?

Problem Changing Document User Name

I recently purchased a used lap top with windows 7 home premium on it. I wanted to change all the settings so that there in my name. I was able to make myself the administrator and was also able to put the pc in my name. Now i'm just trying to change the name of my documents folder. At the moment when i open a program is says c:/user/michael. And my name isn't michael. I went and right-clicked on my documents and clicked properties. I then had a window pop up where i was able to change the name, but when i tried to press ok a window popped up that says, "error 0x80070057: the parameter is incorrect. " So i am unable to fix the name. I tried changing my permissions but its still not working!
 
To make my life even worse i tried to contact someone at microsoft and in order for this to be free for me i have to enter my identification code. I entered it and the website won't take it.

Error - Problem Prevented The Document From Being Scanned

A problem prevented the document from being scanned. Windows 7 - hp g4050 scanner. I have an hp g4050 that worked fine with vista. After upgrading to windows 7, i get the following error when scanning:a problem prevented the document from being scanned. Please try again, or for troubleshooting information, see help and support or the information that came with the scanner. I get a different error when attempting a preview.

It starts to preview the page, gets about 2 inches down the page and then i get the following error:an error occurred when setting the scanner properties. If another program is scanning, please wait for to complete and try again. I've downloaded the latest driver (and reinstalled it several times) from hp with no luck. No errors are logged in application events. I'm going nuts trying to figure this one out!

Only Recent Documents Are Showing Up In Document Libraries

Only recent documents are showing up in the document libraries and in searches. How do i change it back to the way it was? I've been using windows 7 for a few months now. Typically, when i select the documents library, everything in my "my documents" folder is displayed. Last week, only recently viewed documents started showing up there. If i use the drop down option and click on the "my documents" folder, i can again see all of my documents. However, all search utilities i've tried will only show results for documents i've viewed recently. Is there a setting i can adjust to fix this? I have tried removing and re-adding my "my documents" folder to the document library list, but that did not correct the problem. Thanks!

Document Hangs In Printer Queue From Remote Machine

I have a homegroup with 2 computers running windows 7 x64. On the primary i have an hp color laser 1600 connected via usb. I can share files fine. Printer show up fine. The network is working fine. I print a document from the secondary computer and it shows up in the printer queue on the primary computer and says its printing but its not printing. I can't pause, resume or cancel the job. If i then print a document from the primary computer it goes into the queue but it can't print because the first job (from the secondary machine) hasn't finished printing.

When i reboot the primary matching both jobs print before i log on to windows. The file is getting sent to the primary but won't print until i reboot. All sharing is turned on. I've checked all the settings listed in other posts and nothing helps. I can print from the primary machine with no problem as long as there isn't a job in the queue from the secondary machine.

Cannot Open Word Doc From Url

Transferred from microsoft office > microsoft office forums > microsoft office word forums > creating, editing, and formatting documents

Office 2010 beta installed three weeks ago. Today i tried to open a word doc from my own website and although the word programme opened i got an office popup message about viruses and then a message that "could not open" and the url.

I uploaded the file again to the server and tried again. Same messages, i went to the server and downloaded the file itself to a temporary folder. Then it would open in word 2010 beta from the saved file.

I never had this problem with office 2007! Other people have been able to open the file through their own browsers without any problem. I tried it on my portable where i still have office 2007 installed, and that worked fine.

I have xp pro and ie7

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.

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.

Error When Using Word / Outlook In Office 10

While looking at e-mail in outlook and i select a link to a web site i get the following message: "this operation has been canceled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. Please contact you system administrator". Selecting a different site while viewing an e-mail or one in microsoft word i get the above message. I get around the problem by directly accessing windows explorer and typing in the address which takes me to the site. The problem is probably in a switch in window 7 or office10 but i cannot find it to turn it off.
