Help! cannot save files in Word!

Q: Help! cannot save files in Word!

Hi!
I am new to this forum, but recent difficulties have driven me here.
For some reason, whenever I go to save a document in Microsoft word, the "save as" box will pop up as usual, but where it would normally show my the contents of my documents folder there is absolutely nothing! Just blank space! And it will give me the "busy" cursor like its trying to load, but it never will and if I click anything it just goes to "not Responding" and I have to close it! This also happens if I try to open a file. Not just with word either, its all of my programs.

So basically, it is crashing whenever a program tries to access "my documents," which is usually the standard folder that opens whenever you go to "save as" etc.

This used to happen online too, but now that works for some reason but it still doesnt work offline. I thought installing "vista service pack" would help so I did that this morning but its still crashing.

If anyone knows any way I can fix this it would be much appreciated.

-peace

Preferred Solution: Help! cannot save files in Word!

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Ms Word will not save an edited nor new file. There is no error msg. I am using Windows 7, cannot find normal.dot nor any other normal, I have ran diagnostic, uninstalled and reinstalled MS Office, it still will not "save" nor "save as" it just sits there. When I try to save an edited file and check "yes" it just sits there unless I check "no" and it removes the file but will not save it.

Says I can't open document because 'word has insufficient memory' -- I'm assuming this is related to the 62% resources free on bootup...should be 80 if i remember (this is win98) -- any ideas other than that as to why it won't save/open?

and if you agree its the resources problem - how to fix? This is my cousin's old machine...IBM Aptiva...i think it's a duron, only 64mb dedicated system memory...88 included onboard vram.
 

A:Word won't save or open files

I got system resources free up to 88% but it still won't open documents. If I open a document straight from my documents, it will open. But the 'open' command won't work in Word. I can't use the 'save' or 'save as' command.

I can open recent files though in the 'file' menu. Any ideas? Seems really weird.

Also, appears to be true in all Microsoft applications, not just Word.

Friend is having 2 relatively minor problems with his 64 bit Windows 7 Home Premium laptop.

The second:
He uses a flash drive to copy Word files from a Windows XP PC to his Windows 7 laptop. I created a one line bat file for him to copy all the .doc files from his document folder to a thumb drive.

We noticed that not all the document files were being copied. Of about 40 new files, only about 32 made it to the flash drive. When I tried to individually copy/paste files I get a msg (on the 'paste' end of it) that I
Cannot copy (whatever).doc. The directory or the file cannot be created.

So I brought up the original document, and did a Save As to the thumb drive. There I got the msg
Word cannot save or create this file. Make sure that the disk you want to save the file on is not full, write protected, or damaged.

The flash drive is about 1% full, does not seem to be damaged, and allowed me to copy 30-some of the Word files that have been created since 01//06/12, just not all of them.

Any of the documents already on the flash drive can easily be re-copied from the documents folder on the C: drive. It asks if I want to replace the file, I say yes and I get no error.

Any ideas? The Windows XP PC is runing Word 2003, while the Win 7 laptop is running Word 2007 if that makes any difference (I don't know why it should).

First problem in another thread.

Hello,

I am a teacher and would like to save my lesson plans in order so I can reference them easily. I have tried numerous naming conventions but haven't been able to achieve exactly what I want. It may not even be possible. Specifically, I create weekly lesson plans and want to save them in order by week,month, year. This would make it much easier to search for a specific lesson plan. The way it is, windows saves everything in alphabetical order so files are not sequential.

I am running Word 2003 on Windows XP. If anyone can help, I would appreciate it so much.

Thx
 

A:Save Word files in order by month

The file naming is going to have to start with data that you want first, i.e., week-month-year-SubjectMatter.

The week and month are going to have to be NUMBERS.

I have MS Office Home & Student 2007 loaded on my stand alone XP operating system.

Just recently, I have not been able to save a document that I have opened and edited in word as a 1. Word Document, 2. Word Template, 3. Word 97-2003 Document, 4. Other Formats.

When I click on any of these four options nothing happens.

However the only other option in the list: PDF or XPS does work. I am able to save the document as a pdf file.

I have tried repairing, uninstalling and then reloading the office suite. I have also done a system restore to a time that it worked correctly. All these methods have not fixed the problem.

I have not installed any new programs recently. The only thing I have done is deleted everything in my Temp folder. (could this be the cause of my problem?)

Any ideas to resolve my issue would be very much appreciated.

Hi guys,

In each tab, there are several word, powerpoint, and pdf documents that are embedded as objects. My task is to write a macro, that will for each document (keep in mind its an embedded object that needs to be opened), open it with the appropriate program, and save it using a pre-assigned name (the name of the column heading and the row it is in) to a predetermined folder path. This process needs to be duplicated about 200 times. I'm not sure if this is even possible, but I know enough about vba to believe that it is. I've been working on it since yesterday, and I can't seem to tie the pieces together. Can anyone help on this?

One of my user is having this problem on her Windows XP PC:

Dell GX260 with Windows XP Professional running 512MB RAM, Office XP, Acrobat 5.0

When opening a Word file & edited in Word XP, the user cannot SAVE or use SAVE AS the file, when try to exit out the file, get prompt to either SAVE, CLOSE, or CANCEL the file, at that point it will still not save the file, the only way to exit the file is to hit CLOSE to exit.

I initially thought this might be a Word Xp problem, so I ran the repair tool in Office XP, that did not fix it.

I then uninstalled Office XP, reinstalled Office XP, but that also did not fix the problem.

I then ran the Office update to download the latest patches from MicroSoft, but that also did not fix the problem.

I then UNINSTALLED Acrobat 5.0 from the PC, that FIXED the problem.

WITHOUT Acrobat 5.0 on her PC, the user was now able to open & edit a Word file, and able to SAVE the edited file, also able use SAVE AS to save the file as a new copy.

I then reinstalled Acrobat 5.0 thinking the previous copy of Acrobat 5.0 on the PC might be corrupted, as soon as Acrobat 5.0 was back on the PC, the same problem with the SAVE feature came back in Word XP.

I then installed the patch update for Acrobat 5.0, that did not fix the problem.

At this point, I am out of clues on how to fix it....The user tried Acrobat 6.0 before on the same PC, but decided to reverse back to Acrobat 5.0 because of format problem with 6.0.......so Acrobat 6.0 is no... Read more

We are suddenly experiencing weird delays when we use the "receive" function in Outlook to download mail from our e-mail service provider. The mail leaves the service provider server immediately, but does not show up in the Outlook inbox for hours or even a day or two. It is just some of the mail; meanwhile, other mail comes through like normal. And the mail that is not coming through is from people who are on our approved senders list and with whom we've been exchanging mail regularly in the past.

Similarly, there is a shorter delay when using the "save-as" feature in Word. Before, the file showed up immediately in the directory it was being saved in. Now, there is a lag of a few minutes.

We are using Office 2007, and do not have an Exchange server. The mail comes directly into the desktop computer from the e-mail service provider. We tried running Office Diagnostics, but all it did was suggest we download any Office updates and apply them, which we did. It had no effect on the problems.

We have a hardware firewall (Linksys) and have the Windows software firewall disabled. Everything was working fine until a couple of weeks ago. And the percentage of messages that are being delayed is escalating.

Any idea what is causing this, and how to fix it?

Thanks!

However I found myself simply using my mothers more often and saw having two accounts when both of us really only use one as redundant. So I decided to delete the Kev user account. The account had all of my very important files in it under My Documents. When I went to delete the account, it of course asked me if I wanted to save the contents of the My Documents folder for the Kev account under a folder labeled "Kev" on the Nancy Loury user's desktop. I of course did want to save them, so I clicked "Save Files", the account was deleted, and on the desktop is the file labeled "Kev" which, according to the system, should hold all the contents of the My Documents from the Kev account. I clicked on the folder and to my horror I found that it was completely empty; the system had not saved a single one of the files in My Documents like I had asked it too and like it said it would do. Nothing is there.

I've no idea why this happened, all I know is I'm extremely upset about this. What do I do to recover the files from the now deleted My Documents?

I have a user that can not save/save as in word 2000. The computer is windows 2000. When you click save or save as nothing happens.

The user can save in any other program.

This is the case on any 2000 machine, if the machine is XP the user can save word files.

I have deleted the users profile on the server(server 2000) and recreated it, still the user has the same problem.

Thanks for any help.
 

A:Can not save/save as in word.

If another user logs into the same machine, can they save/save as?

If so, then it's a problem with the user's local profile. You would need to delete that and create a new one. (backup any data first)

If it affects all users on the machine, then uninstall office, delete the c:\program files\microsoft office\office? directory (? will be a number, 9, 10, or 11, depending on the version of office (I don't recall what # is for OFfice 2000)), and then reinstall office.

I'm having a problem here that I was wondering if anyone else has ever encountered. I have several Word documents that I need to combine into a single document. All documents use Times New Roman 12 pt for the font. Each document has certain words that are underlined or bolded, and some have simple tables in them. The problem is that when I merge the documents by using the "Insert" "File..." commands, the documents get totally messed up. What happens is some of the text in the inserted text switches to Arial font, some paragraphs get bolded, some paragraphs end up with the first line starting way into the left margin while the rest of the lines in the paragraph start at the margin. I've tried copying and pasting the text from the other files instead of doing an Insert, but the same thing happens. I want the inserted files to keep all formatting from the original file. I don't know how or why the new formatting gets applied, especially the font change. I never use Arial in any of my documents. Any help is greatly appreciated since this is a very frustrating problem for me. Thanks in advance!

Hi Trisha,

Welcome to Seven forums.

It seems that USB drive is not in a proper format. You would need to format the USB drive in Windows before you can use the same.

Please format the same and they try to use it and let us know if it works for you. Right click on the drive and then select format, press ok and it should complete.

Keep us posted with the results so we can advise you further.

I am unable to save a file to my desktop in Microsoft Word 2002. I am presented with this message :A file error has occurred. Try one or more of the following: Check the disk drive to make sure the disk is properly inserted. Check the disk or the disk drive to make sure there is not a hardware problem. Check the network connections.

How can this be since I am trying to save to my desktop? I tried searching the internet and none of those solutions seem to present any help.

I do medical transcription on my Windows XP and save on a disk as Word 97 to give to my employer. As of yesterday, the disk saves it as Rich Text Format even though I have clicked on Save as Word 97. Have I somehow changed a setting?
 

A:? on Save As Word 97

Word 97 is only available as .rtf

If you want .doc, use save as - Word 6.0/95.
It is backward compatable with Word 97

Hello guys

The PC is XW4400 HP Workstation.

I am writing on a subject and saved to a CD-RW disk. When I click to 'SAVE' I get the message, 'Word cannot save or create this file. Make sure that the disk you want to save the file on is not full, write-protected or damaged (D:\...\dd)

But next time I tried to save to the same disk a message says ' You cant save here. Please choose another location'.

Any advice please.

Thank you.

Not sure what happened. The Visio files were opening just fine a few minutes ago, and now when I try to open them, IE prompts me continuously for "Open, Save, Save as." I tried all three options for the fun of it and IE still prompts every time.
Tried opening them from a remote PC and they open just fine. Can't do anything with them on my PC except view them in Visio itself.
I've tried resetting IE settings. Uninstalling IE 11 and going down to 10. Nothing in event viewer for IE. 



Any ideas?

Thanks!

Hi and welcome to seven forums

Could you use the snipping tool ( built in (type snip in searcH)) to take a screenshot of the save dialog box. Also what antivirus are you using? could you also fill in system specs (lower left corner) so we know what hardware you have

Thanks

I've been coping various documents (created by me) into new Word folders. Next I tried to save, rename or merge them. Word tells me I can't do that because the file is already open even when it's not. I've had little hiccups with Word before but this is a new one and I'm at a loss. Can anyone give me a clue as to where I might look to solve the problem? Here's a screenshot of the message.

I'm running Win7 with MalwayBytes and Microsoft Security Essentials. I might add I've never had this problem before.
