Word and Excel File lists not appearing

Q: Word and Excel File lists not appearing

Recently, when I open either my MS Word or Excel programs, and click on the yellow "Open" folder, whereas previously a list of my saved documents came up, now sometimes the page is blank! If I leave it for, say, ten minutes, they appear and I can open and work on them, but I wondered whether anyone had an idea as to why this is happening? I am running Windows 7 (64 bit). Many thanks.

Preferred Solution: Word and Excel File lists not appearing

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.)

Hello there this is my first post so I hope its an easy one for you

A guy that my wife works with says that when he looks in his IE history apart from websites there are also the word and excel files he has used.

No one else in the office has this problem and Ive had a good poke round the IE options to try find a solution for him but to no avail.

I dont think its a particular worry to him, just more puzzlement than anything.

If anyone can solve this Ill pass it on and earn some brownie points in the process

Running Word 2003 (SP2) under XP-SP2, the Send to option behaves oddly: the list displayed under "File Sent to" is different than the one located in Document and Settings - < User Name > - SendTo. The one I want to use is the latter.

I completely reinstalled Word 2003 from scratch and ended up with the same problem. On another computer, where the environment is the same, everything works fine.

Is there a registry option I could change?

Hello all, I'm having an issue with Office 2007. All Word and Excel files appear unassociated. They are however associated just fine and the files open as they should. The icons just aren't appearing. I've also notice this throughout the system with .ink files on the desktop and start menu for Quick Time and iTunes.

I tried the usual default programs and reassociation specific files bit. No luck.

I tried first performing office diagnostics, but I get an error stating that I don't have the proper permissions. I am on the main Admin account when this happens.

I also tried the unassociate utility that is floating around online.

When I try to do a change/remove or autorun with the disc, they crash.

I went into the registry and deleted the users choice key, hoping it would reset

I'm seeing this problem on new profiles that I've built and tested.

I'm running Office 2007 with SP1 installed.

Hello all,

I have been presented with a project that involves Forms that I am not able
to resolve.

Basically I have been asked to create a document template where other team
members can fill out a form that asks a series of questions, then to have
only the completed form results export to a new file.

I am aware that Word can export the form results to a text file, but when I
do this all of the questions that were on the original form are exported to
the new file.

What we are looking to achieve in the end:
If the end user is faced with 20 questions, but only 12 of the questions
pertain to the end users project, only the 12 completed form fields will
export to a new file.

I know that this should be possible with using a macro button to export the data, but that is where I need the help.

I tried searching for this exact situation, but I did not find any matches, hence the new thread.

Thank you in advance,

Bill

Hey all,

I have come to you in a fit of desperation. My USB drive was stolen recently and my master Excel data file was lost, which contained all my compiled data from my most recent lab experiment.

Anyway, I have charts of all the important stuff in a word document. The data is there, I can hover on each data point and see the values, and the axes and chart are all accessible for editing.

My question is, how the heck do I extract that data back out of the chart into a table or Excel spreadsheet? There MUST be a way that is better than copying down each data point one at a time

Your help is greatly appreciated.

I'm trying to insert from Word into Excel using Insert-Object-Create From File.

The tab I'm inserting it into is set up correctly (in this case Landscape Legal). But when I view, it only has the first page (of two) from the Word document. I've given it enough space page break wise.

Is there a better way to do this than my first idea (insert one document for the first page, and another for the second)?

Thanks in advance.

my system: vista 64 Ultimate, Office 2007, all updates, no viruses, 8 GB RAM, 750 GB HDD, C2D
Problem: I used to have office 2003. At some time word could not save anymore. so I switched to office 2007 thinking it is related to vista. when I start word 2007 I get the error message "could not create work file. check the environment variable". At first it wouldn't save either, but I fixed that by deleting the normal.dot It seems to work besides the annoying message. The other problem may be related: Excel can not save at all and crashes while trying and says: "MS Excel cannot open or save any documents because there is not enough available memory or disk space... to make memorey free...". all other Office applications seem to work well (haven't tried too much).
I googled and tried all the registry tricks (that's how I found the fix with deleting the normal.dot). I suspect at some time I changed something and can't remember what. but word 2003 worked at some time. I have reinstalled Office multiple times (deleted registry entries etc.) Nada. My links to the temp folders in environment variables should be correct. I had meddled with those at some point.
I searched the forum, haven't found anything. Sorry in case I overlooked something here.

This problem has probably been addressed here before, but I haven't found it, so will ask it again. Word is supposed to allow data access from other files types such as Excel and Access, for mail merge source and other file linking. These file types are not recognized by Word.

Hi
I'm trying to figure out how to make it so that a very long checklist, which includes checkboxes and text boxes, can be transferred to excel. (I'm working with the Microsoft Office 2007 suite.) I've been reading about how you're supposed to enable the "Save Data as Delimited Text File" in the advanced part section of the 'Tools' Options tab, and then save it as a text file to import into excel, but when I do that it doesn't save any information, just two zeros. I've been looking at other forum questions and messing around with how the forms are protected or not, but I can't get it to actually save any of what's entered in to the forms when I save it as a text file. Any help on this would be very much appreciated.
I've attached a zip folder (I hope) with a section of the checklist in case that might help. Thanks so much!

First off, Hi there,

My name is John, and I'm currently working on a networked computer attempting to create a document that can be accessed and easily adjusted by all the management staff.

Below are the following issues I have encountered and am requesting assistance for:

1. When I create an autotext list via the Style Alt-F3 procedure (right click to access the list) it will function perfectly on my computer.. however, when transfered to another computer, (or the shared drive) it does not recognize that the list exists. How do I make other computers recognize this list? (Please note that I do not have administrative rights to the primary 2003 word folder/files - only the virtual drive)

2. When I create a dropdown list it only provides a total of 25 available entry slots. How do I increase this?

3. The dropdown feature only works if I am in protect mode. Is there a way to select the dropdown items in edit mode?

4. Word 2003 automatically places a border around the dropdown list in edit mode, and attempts to print this. In protect mode, it attempts to print the arrow selection box. How do I prevent the document from printing (or remove) the auto border and selection arrow?

In using Word 2007's numbered list feature (using XP OS), it will not create a multilevel list. When I press Tab to get to the next level in the list, it simply tabs instead of starting a second level list. Frustrating!!! Any ideas?

Hello everyone!As the title says, I'm working with Word 2010 and suddenly my multilevel lists won't work by using the tab key. When I press the tab key, the cursor just moves in 1/2 inch. It doesn't make the line a sublevel.However, when I use the Increase Indent button found on the Home Tab>Paragraph, the sublevels do work.I have absolutely no idea why this is happening. I looked on Google and found an article that seemed promising, but its suggestions did not help.Thus, any help is greatly appreciated!-r0d3r1ck

Hi, folks.

Normally I am somewhat of a guru when it comes to defining my own styles and formatting in MS Word, but I have come across a head-scratcher I thought I would run past the knowledgable people in this forum.

I would like to create a list style, but instead of numbering the items 1,2,3... or A,B,C..., I would like to define my own list of labels, such as Fred, Sally, Joe...

So my list in Arabic numbering would look like this:
1. item
2. item
3. item
Click to expand...

and my list in my custom numbering scheme would look like this:
Fred. item
Sally. item
Joe. item
Click to expand...

Any ideas/insights? I imagine I will have to write some VB code for this, and as I have never done that before in Word I would appreciate examples.

Thanks.

- Kevin

Okay. Ready to pay attention?
Format-Bullets and numbering.
Choose Outline numbering.
Choose the one you're least likely to use (I chose the bulleted ones), and RESET them first, if it's available.
Now, hit customize.
From the bullet dropdown, choose none.
Time "Fred" in the box to the left of the period.
That's the first level done.
Now, click the 2 at the left in that skinny little column.
Choose none for the bullet, and type Sally in box...

Got me?
