Unable to save MSoffice files (excell, word, etc) on C

Q: Unable to save MSoffice files (excell, word, etc) on C

Its been a week now since i have this problem that im unable to save MSoffice files on my laptop's C drive. I keep on getting the message "Your changes cannot be saved to "fxx.xxx" because of sharing violation."
This started when i removed my membership from administrators group to power user and change the owner from me to administrators group, i did if for standard security setup in our office for all computers (im part of administrator team, so i know the admin password anyway). Since then im not able to save any MSoffice file on c.
So far this is the only program that i know of that wont allow me to save files on c although i tried running a standalone program from D (no installtion required) and create a profile/or user for that parcticular program, then close the program and open it again but the profile is not being created. I tried doing it using admin login and it is able to create i can also save MSoffice file on c. Funny thing is, on the other machine the same standard security set up is working for a power user. i tried reinstalling the msoffice XP program but to no avail. I tried adding my name again on the administrators group stil not able to save.

Preferred Solution: Unable to save MSoffice files (excell, word, etc) on C

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.)

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

My old Laptop had Office 2000. My new one Office 2007. A number of my old Excell files I have changed from 97-2003 format to the new one.

I burned a Excell file to a cd and put it on my wife's pc, but could not open it with her Excell 2000 and when I did open it it was in symbols, not text. My question is, do my files have to be saved as a 97-2003 format Excell file first before being sent to other people with earlier versions of Excell so they can open them? I had someone email me today that they could not open an Excell file i just sent from my new laptop that I have sent them for years every month from my old laptop.

And is the problem with only old files from my Excell 2000 in my Office 2007 or will I have this problem with even new files I create?
Thanks.

A:Excell 2007 files and Excell 97-2003 compatability problems

For people to open office 2007 files, with earlier versions need to install the Compatibility Pack http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...70-3ae9-4aee-8f43-c6bb74cd1466&displaylang=en

So they either need to install that pack or you need to save the files as the 97-2003 format, which I would recommend, since not many people are using Office 2007

You can change the default save of a word or excel file to the 97-2003, its in the options, click on the Office icon and then click Word or Excel Options then Save

A:Unable to save as word 2000 to 98 machine

If the place where you are trying to save your file is unavailable, save the file to a different location.

If you have tried to use an unusual character in the file name, remove it from the file name.

For example, the error message

The folder "(path)" isn't accessible. It may be on an unavailable volume, or protected with a password."

...is either caused by a genuinely unavailable destination, or it can be caused by having the "<" or ">" symbol in the file name.

Or.... Click Save As and save the file as an .rtf file insted.

I lost a few hours of work due to:
Suddenly unable to save a file in Excel. No warnings etc. Blissfully working (and saving) along but when I boot up again later I found the file 'not saved' but a random number file eg; BDF45000 in directory. Opens up in Excel but with only some data.

I did:
Run repair, Office 2003 Proff. (No change)
Check for 'read only' (Not the problem)
Use Reg Mechanic, cleaned up and defragged... (No change)
Save under different name. (No change)

I use AVG... could it be that a third party app interferes with a 'proper save'?.. or AVG interference whilst excel tries to save? I am a bit paranoid at this stage... not trusting the pc. Ideas?

Need help trying to save a word 2007 document. Am running Windows Vista. I have been working on this document for the past couple of days, a high school maths investigation with lots of equations and graphs copied over from 'Autograph' a 3d graphing software. I have been able to save it with ease with all this stuff on it until an hour ago. When I press CTRL+S it opens up the save as box (even though i've already saved it before). Then when i press save in this dialog box the box closes for a half a second before opening again without me pressing anything. I do it again and again and notice the little loading bar that tells you it's saving in the bottom right hand corner of the document gets stuck and then stops when the box opens up again. I've tried to rename it and this doesn't work. i copied it into an old word document and then saved that document and that document wouldn't save either. i got rid of it off that document and the old document saved perfectly. I closed it just to check it was actually not saving and it isn't. Is there something wrong with my document? or is it word? please help!

Greetings,

I'm a former IT Systems Technician, and my girlfriend is a work-from-home writer. I've recently migrated her PC's original processor and ram from an HP motherboard to an ASRock board, linking the original WD Caviar Blue 1TB drive to the board as a secondary drive to collect documents and storage from, while running Windows 8.1 (up to date) on a Seagate Barracuda 250GB for the main OS and programs drive.

With those specs out there in the open, now it's time to get to the root of the problem.

As a work-from-home writer, my girlfriend depends on the ability to save her documents to Microsoft's OneDrive and upload them to her publisher, but with this error showing up, she cannot get them to save. I have never seen such a message in my many years of IT service, and I'm completely baffled.

I am the administrator... So now I turn to you guys for help.

A:ms word will not save files

RELEVANCY SCORE 60.8

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.

Hello...
I've just done a fresh re-install of Windows 7 (Home Premiium 64-bit)) I'm running Intel i7/8Gb Ram with two 500Gb drives -
I've also re-installed MSOffice 2007 etc use 'Print Screen' key a lot to transfer info to a Word dociument.
Previously, this resulted in a continuous document (ie page following on fromto previous)but now Word is splitting it into side-by-side view.
It's been so long since I fiddled with Word, I'm probably missing something simple to revert it to continuous page.

Can anyone help me get things back on track?

Many thanks

A:Problem with Word - MSOffice 2007

While I don't use Print Screen as you do, so I am not actually familiar with the operation, but it seem that it might have something to do with the size of the image you are transferring. This means Word would put them side by side. Can you make them larger or fiddle with the size to duplicate what you had before.

Do you still have some Word documents that you created before the reinstall that you can refer to for sizing etc..

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.

I have two problems with Word 2003.

First, regardless of any changes made to a document, when I close the application I do not get a prompt asking if I want to save the changes.

Second, I cannot open more than one document at a time. If I have a document open, and I try to open a second document, it flashes the second document on the screen briefly and then closes it, leaving me with my first document open. There are no windows minimized to the taskbar, and there are no documents (other than the first document I opened) listed in the Window menu of Word.

I have installed all updates and service packs (both for Office 2003 and for Windows XP), and I am not using any 3rd party add-ins. I even tried uninstalling all Office related applications and reinstalling. No dice.

This has been going on for quite some time now, and I cannot find ANY information that seems to relate. I am begging for help here, so anything is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

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).

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.

A:Unable to save files on my desktop

See the suggestion below......it worked for me.


I figured out the solution to this problem in Windows 7. I assume this will work with other OS too.

1. Right-click on the drive that is causing the problem.

2. Left-click on Properties.

3. Click on the Security tab.

4. In the first window click on Administrators (your computer name-PC Administrators).

5. Just below the window click on Edit.

6. Click on Administrators (your computer name-PC Administrators) again.

7. Here's the key to making it work. If Apply is grayed-out, check a box in the Deny column. It will then bring up Apply.

8. Check a box in the Allow column. It should check all of the boxes except the last one and uncheck all of the boxes in the Deny column.

9. Click Apply. It should run a scan of the files in the drive. When the scan is finished, click Ok. The first box should still be open.

10. In the first window, click on Users (your computer name-PC\Users) and repeat steps 5-9, of course clicking on Users (your computer name-PC\Users)
instead of Administrators (your computer name-PC Administrators).

NOTE: You may not have to click in the Deny column after the first scan is completed for step 10 as indicated in step 7.

A:Unable to save in Program Files

Hello Zilla,

Even in Windows 7 you are not allowed to save directly to a system folder location from an external source (ex: internet, USB).

Instead, you must save to one of your user folders (ex: Desktop, Downloads...), then you (if administrator) will be able to copy/move the file into a system folder and approve to do so.

This is done for security purposes to prevent external sources from having access to system files and folders.

Hope this helps,

Hi guys,

I have a question that has stumped me so far. Here is the scenario: I am dealing with a spreadsheet that has several tabs on it. 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?

Thanks!

Hello, I have come across a slight problem, I use Google Chrome to download pictures, videos and such, I've set the default location to download said files is the "My Pictures" Folder, but when I choose to save a picture to the file it just says that I cant save it there, and to choose another location, It does it with every other main folder except "Downloads" folder, anything can go in there. I have ran AVG and Malware bytes to see if it could possibly be a virus, but no luck.

This problem hasn't been around long, and I'm already pulling my hair out over it, I was able to do it before, but unable now.

I have also attached a picture as evidence.

I am running Windows 7 x64, and still haven't made a backup

Thanks in Advance

Hazzy.

So here is the story. Last night I installed the Photoshop CS4 trial. Works like a charm. I also installed Windows 7 on my laptop which is on my home network. A strange problem has occurred in which I cannot save images (in any program, Photoshop and Firefox for example) in my libraries and occasionally on my desktop. This is the error that shows up:

This is within Firefox. After ignoring the error and trying again it gives me this problem.

So I just say yes and continue. The problem is that within Photoshop and other programs I can't simply ignore it an save, they completely block it out. So my question is what could be the problem. It seems to be a network permissions issue (as indicated by the error), but I'm not entirely certain how to go about fixing it. Neither of the folders I try to save to are shared on the network so that shouldn't be the issue.

Sorry for the large images (and ignore rainbow Napoleon, just a test image ).

A:Unable to save files due to Permissions error.

Hi and welcome to sevenforums.

Are you the admin on Windows 7?

If so try this
Take Ownership of file - Vista Forums
Use method 2
The path you want is C:\Users

OK, so I'm a former IT tech, and I have 5 computers with Win 8.1 in the house, and a Windows 7 home server.

One of the desktops has started *NOT* allowing its owner/user to save files to their appropriate folders, and now only allows files to be saved to the desktop.

I've thought of System Restore, but for two reasons, I have declined to use this option...

For reason one, we don't know how long ago this issue started.

And reason two, I'm not sure that this would fix the issue, given that the documents and such are on the Desktop, rather than in their respective folders...

A:Unable to save files to Windows 8.1 folders?

Have you attempted for those users to "take ownership" of the folders having the issue?

What happens when you attempt to save the problem folders, do you get an "access denied" error message?

A:What do I do now? word/excell

you need to install ms office of the disk which came with your original PC if you cant get this you may need to purchase it.

If you don't wish to buy it you could download word and excel viewer off the MS website to view them and download this program open office at http://www.openoffice.org/ it is a free worksuite just have a look at the site

Hello,

I am using Windows Vista & Word 2007 + a Pocket PC-Smartphone.

When I used Word 2003 I could create files & save them to my phone.

Now that I'm using Word 2007, it wont let me save files to the phone, though I can open files CREATED on the phone.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks!!

I'm suddenly having quite a few problems the past 2 days and one of them is preventing me from even posting the HijackThis log. I use Firefox but I'm getting multiple IE pop-ups and some of them slow down my PC tremendously and I can't close the windows sometimes. It causes me to shut down about half the time. Here are the links to 3 that just opened right now if that's any help:http://89.188.16.10/trafc-2/rfe.php?cmp=nm...mp;lid=http>http://ultimateplasmatvs.com/?config=2148&...aCD4353:109599:http://adultfriendfinder.com/go/page/galle...&override=0Again, although I never use IE, the windows always open in IE and never in Firefox.In addition, if I try to attach a file to an e-mail, "Save to disk" when trying to save a file, or even click "Save log" on HijackThis to bring up the Notepad window, nothing happens. I don't get an error message, I don't get anything at all.I've run Ad-Aware and Spybot multiple times but it's still happening. I know without the HijackThis log it might be difficult to isolate the problem, but any ideas on how I can start to correct this?

Bit of a strange problem this..

When ever i try and open a program including paint, IE, firefox, AVG, malware bytes, even my music folder the "which user account do you want to use this program with RUN AS" window appears. If i then say click "current user" then press ok an error message appears.


this service cannot be started, either because it is disabled or because it has no enabled devices associated with it.


I cannot "save" screen shots as i get the "access denied" message and a

"the my documents folder could not be found. Right click the documents icon , click properties, and then check that the path to your target folder location is correct.



i also get this error message


c\:WINDOWS\system32\rundll32.exe

The service cannot be started, either because it is disabled or becasue it has no enabled devices associated with it
