Word 2016 opening as Word 2006

Q: Word 2016 opening as Word 2006

Hello,
I have a problem with my Word. I use Microsoft Word 2016 to write, and I'm more comfortable using this than Word 2007. However, when I save a file using Word 2016, I open it later using File Explorer and it opens in 2007. I cannot figure out why this happens. I even go to my document, select "Open With...", click on "Word 2016", and enter. This still opens as Word 2007. I've tried researching, but no one else seems to have this problem.
Can anyone tell me what to do? Maybe I'm overlooking something obvious since I'm not really a techie. If anybody can help, please send detailed instructions!

Thank you!

Hi folks,

I have this problem that is hard to search for on Google. We have a lot of word 2000 documents connected to a simpel text data file (data.doc) that is used with mail merge.

Here is our process:
1.) data.doc is opened, filled with all variablenames we can use in our documents (name, country, etc.)
2.) data.doc is opened, filled with the actual data (from a database) belonging to the variables name (Kees, Japan, etc.)
3.) Our vb.net 2008 application does step 1 and 2, then starts a template word 2000 document which has that data.doc file attached for mail merge. The template is now filled in with the correct data.
4.) vb.net 2008 application tells MS Word to print the document.
5.) Works fine and we have ourselves a nice document filled in with data we specified in the vb.net 2008 application.

Now comes the problem, some new computers will have office 2007 instead of office 2000 installed, during testing we have encountered that it does not error but the office 2007 installed computer does not fill in the data and just shows mergefield names <<name>> <<country>>. Also when printed out. So it seems like the datafile is not connected when opening the template in word 2007.

If we let our vb.net 2008 application show us the document visually first, we can re-attach the data file again and we can print the data, however there are 3 thing wrong with this approach:

1.) More user input which is not needed.
2.) MS Word is opening and showing, somet... Read more

I asked for help with problems that were occurring after Avast found a malware infection on my computer.

When I open a Word file, it freezes & then crashes (details below) often w/in 10-20 minutes of opening the file, but occasionally it has been longer (it went 3 hours once).

Hi

Here is a strange one. I have Microsoft Word 2000 on a computer running Windows XP SP3. I just began having a problem opening documents directly in Word. The documents will open but they are not right. For example, I have a document that is passworded out. Within Word, the document will open, but it does not ask for a password, and the contents of the document come up scrambled. Here is an excerpt of what it looks like:

+??+??7k'?p%V9
q|?F
t?Uzjikvn?nnU
b*79g?CAg?
t???c\0B?~I?_sD
l%*~tL
T,?*O?>.???l?C?
Ab/hA>[S?

This goes on for 20 pages.

However, if I go into Windows Explorer and open the document by double clicking on it there, it correctly asks for the password and opens fine. Weird, no?

I tried opening other documents from Word that do not have passwords. They open, but the documents include a bunch of formatting instructions that usually remain hidden. But from Windows Explorer they open fine. Here is an example:

I've got some strange behavior going on with .doc files at the moment. Whenever I try to open a .doc file from Windows Explorer or a desktop shortcut, Word opens with the error message "Word experienced an error trying to open the file. Try these suggestions. * Check the file permissions for the document or drive. *Make sure there is sufficient free memory and disk space. *Open the file with the Text Recovery converter."

After clicking OK, the .doc file then opens in Word, apparently with no problems at all (I can edit, save, etc.). So basically the error message seems to be wrong, since the file does open properly.

I can open .doc files from within Word (File -> Open) with no error message.

The issue is more of an annoyance than anything else (since the file eventually opens up just fine), but I imagine it'll just become more irritating as time goes on. Any suggestions on how to resolve it? I've been poking around in the Folder Options -> File Types in Explorer without a clear sense of purpose.

I'm running MS Word 2003 SP3 on Windows XP Service Pack 3. If you need any further info, please let me know.

Hello:
I recently upgraded to Office 2016, and whenever I use Word 2016, it freezes up. It is set to Compatibility Mode, like all my previous versions of Word (except the first one!), because many of my colleagues in small nonprofit organizations have older versions. I have an ongoing malware program and also did a complete scan and found nothing, so it's not a virus. I've also rechecked the settings, but I can't see anything amiss.

The freeze comes like this: When I open an older text (from a colleague so it is in an earlier version of Word), it opens fine. But the first time I try to scroll or page down, it freezes. Also, when I try to save an older text, it freezes. And when I reopen Word and click on the recovered text in the right-hand column, it freezes immediately. I seem to be able to create new texts, and even save them.

Any ideas about how I can fix this? This is my workhorse program so I really need it. Thanks.

With the new Microsoft Word 2016 if you insert an equation through the Equation button within the Insert menu you get this new-looking editor.


Equations created in such a way can be viewed in inline, professional or linear mode and offer advanced options.

But if you use a keyboard shortcut (Alt+= or any user defined one) instead you end up getting this old-fashioned editor:


And if you edit equations from documents made by other people sometimes they are opened with the new editor, sometimes with the old one.

Can anyone explain the difference between them and how to force Word to always use the new one, please?, I would like to get it with a keyboard shortcut.
And also how to convert an equation made with the old editor onto the new format?

Hi:
I just had a very strange result when converting a Word 2016 docx, with headings and Table of Contents, to pdf. I've got Adobe Acrobat Pro and attempted to both "print to pdf" and Save As pdf. Each time I got a popup to update the Contents index. Even if I canceled, the pages would reorder such that one of the images and captions of page 16 would show up on page three. I tried deleting and reinstalling the index; saving as a doc file then attempting pdf; uploading to a free pdf converter. Nothing worked. Eventually I saved as RTF, then converted to PDF. Yay. That worked. When I then saved the rtf as docx, it again successfully converted to pdf. Took me about an hour to troubleshoot.

Any ideas out there? Seems like there must have been some gremlin in the TOC code that got stripped out converting to RTF. Weird. Any thoughts or suggestions would be welcome.

A:Forced Spaces on Word 2016

When you justify paragraphs, MS Word will equalize the spacing between words that are on the same line.  If you think about, this is the only way your paragraphs can end up being aligned to both the left and right margins.  Obviously, there are times when this can result in large unsightly spaces.  The only way to avoid these unsightly spaces is to hyphenate some words.  I don't use MS Office, but there should be a setting somewhere that will apply hyphenation for you automatically.  You can check to see if this setting is on.  Also, it's possible that "hyphenation" dictionaries may be available for you to install to help with this.

So....285-page document. It's a novel, so scene changes as well as 1st paragraph of new chapters are NOT indented. I have an issue where sometimes I want to break a paragraph into two and start a new paragraph. Usually it works, but occasionally it just drops the text down a line w/o the paragraph indent. Sure I can hit tab, but the problem is that I've been warned editors HATE having a bunch of tabs in the doc....I did a "replace all" and got rid of all tabs. Fine, but it also meant I had to go back and hand-fix dozens of scene changes to get them right again. So how do I fix the formatting so I automatically get a paragraph indent, w/o hitting tab, or risking having the existing indents/scene changes go wacky again?

Problem: Word won't replace styles (especially in footnotes).

Description: A very large number of footnotes are in the wrong style (or styles). I want to change them all to, say, style FN1.
While SelectAll, specify style FN1 by clicking the ribbon, would only be a partial solution, it doesn't work, although by not erroring it implies it has.
SearchAndReplace Null text, format style 'Bad1' with Null text, format style FN1 says it has done an arbitrary number of replacements, but doesn't.
SearchAndReplace *, format style 'Bad1' with ^& , format style FN1, UseWildcards goes away for a week and says it has done (in one case) 13,849 replacements, but it hasn't.

Solution wanted: Replace all text in footnotes [with or without bad style] with a new style.

Of interest: Simple search for NullText, Style xxx doesn't find anything, even if xxx is, eg, simply italics. Search for Font italic does.

I Suspect: I'm being snared by MS bizarre 'style v paragraph' stuff.

This is not: How to modify a style - Google ad nauseam.

I will really appreciate a solution (or even an explanation of why I have no chance), otherwise I look like having a month of selecting indivual footnotes manually.

System: Desktop, W10, Word 2016 (and earlier).

So I know this should be very easy. I have a 285-page novel manuscript I'm formatting for submission. I have page numbers that start on the 3rd actual page, which is where Chapter 1 begins. I have a header but it only appears on those first two pages; it stops before Chapter 1. How do I have the header appear on every page of the doc? I googled it but it's confusing....it took awhile to get the page numbering right, because I wanted it to start where it does....I'm afraid if I mess with the header as it is, I'm in for more frustration. A simple step-by-step would be appreciated. Thanks!

This is really recent, after I paid this year's renewal.....when I try to "Save As" on any Word doc, it hangs up forever, until I close out using Task Manager (cont-alt-delete.) I have Windows 7 Home Pro on my desktop. This does not happen on the same program on my laptop (Windows 10.) I looked into the issue online, but it seemed that the options are very time-consuming, and the reviews on effectiveness were mixed at best.

Any ideas? I guess I should at least start with uninstall/reinstall? (That's my inclination; it's just that I read other people saying they did that and it accomplished nothing.)

I appreciate any help. Again this is Microsoft Word 2016 on Windows 10 64-bit.

I am in the process of upgrading from Win XP & Office 2007 to Win 10 & Office 2016. I have everything installed and it seems to be running. I copied all of My Documents over using a thumb drive. Now I need to copy several folders of user templates.
 
On Win XP, they are in:

C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Application Data\Microsoft\Templates\...
Can I just copy them over like I did with My Documents? And if so, where to?

I imported a group of cells from Excel 2016 into a Word document in Word 2016. Under the Developer tab in Word, I added a Text Form Field under the Legacy Tools toolbox. I locked the rest of the form and I can see that I can then only type in the Text Form Field box I created. That works correctly.

When I hold down a key and fill the Text Form Field box, my right margin stays but my left margin and bottom of the text box move so that the words wrap (as I'd like) but the data in the locked area to the left of the field get distorted as the Text Form Field fills with data.

I don't know how to stop this but I know that it can be stopped because this is the second form I have created in such a manner and the first form behaves correctly. On the first form, if I hold down a key and fill the box, the words wrap but the left and right margins stay and the bottom of the text box only gets bigger (not the left side as is happening on my second form as I described above).

I have hovered over the left and right margins and when I get the double line to move them in and out, I have moved both and then one or the other at a time in and out and it doesn't fix the issue.

I also tried using the first form (which works correctly), deleting the existing data in it and importing the new Excel cells into it. The same issue happens. I don't know what I did on the first form to lock the left and right so data only expands downward.

Any suggestions?

Whenever I click on the file tab in Word or Powerpoint 2016 (doesn't happen for Excel) the programme crashes. The tech support at Microsoft are unable to resolve so I'm wondering if it is a HP conflict with Office or Windows 10. Has anyone else experienced this and found out how to resolve the problem?

I have a HP Pavilion X2 with windows 10 and Office 2016 installed on it. MS Word is the only application where scrolling with two fingers on the touchpad is unbearably slow.
Is it possible to fix this? Why does that happen just in MS Word and not in any other application?

For clarification, are you using Word 2016 (part of Office 2016) and is the document a word doc (.docx), PDF or what?

Good morning,
I have a style setting for a user-defined style called Front Matter: Heading that I want to start on a new page and about 87 pt down the page. So, in the style paragraph dialogue box, in "Line and Page Breaks," I clicked "Page break before,"
and in "Indents and Spacing," I set "Spacing: before" at 87 pt.
The Front Matter: Heading paragraphs begin on a new page like they should (i.e. there's a page break before), but they start at the top of the page, not 87 pt down like in previous versions of Word. If I unclick "Page break before," the next Front
Matter: Heading paragraph begins 87 pt below the previous paragraph. But how do I get Front Matter: Heading to leave a gap at the top of the page when "Page break before" is clicked?
This is happening in documents I've converted over from Word 2010 and in the template that these documents are based off.

This should be easy, but I'm baffled. If I create a table in a word doc, then go to delete a column, the column on the far right will lose its right border. Huh???

What am I doing wrong? Never seen this before....Oh, and it also happens in Google Docs....
 

A:MS Office 2016: In Word, deleting column in table

Please check if the border exists when you zoom in. Vertical and horizontal lines seem to have a hard time when you are zoomed out.

Please see the gif below:
