Hello,

I am having issues with Word and Outlook 2003. I just upgraded them from 2000 and now I am running into a couple of issues. Help!

Microsoft Word 2003
- Can't highlight or select an area on my Word page with my mouse. I can use my keyboard, but that becomes quite annoying as you can imagine.

Microsoft Outlook 2003
- Can't highlight or select an area on my page with my mouse. I can use my keyboard, but that becomes quite annoying as you can imagine.
- Can't open Word document attachments only. I can open excel, pdf, etc..., but not Word.

I have restarted my pc, reinstalled office 2003, erased the normal.dot profile, removed the 11.0\Word\Data registry and no luck. Any solutions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I currently am setting up 4 new PCs for my workplace. They are runnin Windows 7 Pro 32 bit. I am having issues with MS Office 07. 2 of the PCs run all of the office programs fine. The other 2 will not open word or powerpoint. They just crash on startup. Both these computers are on a domain and the domain user has Admin privileges, however it still does not launch. When I log directly into the administrator account it does launch but if I go back to the domain user (with admin permissions) it fails to launch. I have read tons of forums and tried everything from the reinstalling, repairing, deleting the registry, deleting the normal.dot, running some registry commands and still nothing. I am out of ideas and curious as to why it would work fine on 2 of the PCs but not the other 2. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I know there is plenty of info out there on this issue, but I have tried everything I can find and still no success.

When I open a microsoft office word document a light blue screen comes up which is usually the screen behind the word doc that opens. In order for me to pull up the doc I am looking for I have to hit the menu on top left and click recent documents and then it opens the doc. Also, if I right click and choose word to open the doc an error message pops up saying "Windows cannot find C:documents and settings/administrator/desktop/charlie/d? make sure you typed the name correctly and then try again". I am using Office 2007 and this happens with every document I open that is a word document. It does not happen with Excel

I have assigned a keyboard shortcut to Microsoft Word 2007. When I press those keys, Microsoft Word 2007 takes a while to open. If I close the program and press those same shortcut keys, Word opens up instantly. However, if I don't open word again for several minutes it takes some time to open just as it did when I first opened it. I haven't timed it to see at what point this occurs, but I did notice it after 20 minutes or so.

I am assuming that something stays in memory / running for a while (and this is independent of the fact that I already have multiple documents already open), which is why Word opens up again instantly. It is indeed instant and I am very happy with that speed, but I want it to happen every single time.

Does anyone have any ideas on how this can be done?

Note: This is being done on a Windows 8 Computer.

I am using a computer in the office. There are two of us that use this computer, myself and my boss. Neither of us are really computer saavy, we understand the basics and thats about it. We only work in the office on rainy days, any other time we are outside. But we have been using Microsoft word 2003 for a few years and have never had a problem loading it until now.

I keep getting error messages when trying to open files created in Word 2003. The files burn to cd without a problem but when I try to open them off of the cd I get the file may be corrupt try to use recover text option or open and repair option. The odd thing is these word 2003 files open in Office xp without any issues. I have also got an error stating I do not have adminstrative rights on my cd drive. The cd drive is not a network shared drive so I am confused by this error. I have replaced the old cd-r/rw drive with a dvd r/rw and still get the same problems.

I have created in Microsoft Word 2003 on an XP OS some lengthy documents. I created them using a view setting of 150%.

I sent them to my employer, who is using Windows 98 and Microsoft Word 97. My boss opened them with his system and they displayed on the screen at a view of 200%. He wants me to send him Word documents that he can open from the CD-R that I send that will automatically display at 100% view on the screen so that he does not have to set the view for each document as it displays.

So what is the answer.

Is there a way that I can save my created documents so that when my boss gets them on a CD-R that they will open on his system at a view setting of 100%.

Is there also a way that his system can be set to default to 100% in reading from the CD-R.

My boss does not want to copy the documents to the system hard disk from my sent CD-R, preferring to read and copy directly from the CD-R that I send, so that the original documents will not accidentally be changed.

Any help would be appreciated.

I recently purchased an ASUS Windows 8.1 64 bit computer.  I transferred my Microsoft Works Version 8.0 word processor and spreadsheet files from my old computer onto the new computer.  I just purchased the Microsoft Office 2013 Home and Student Edition (64 bit version) from an online vendor and installed the software onto my new computer. 
 
I have no problems opening my Works spreadsheet files in Excel.  However, when I attempt to open a Works word processor file in Word, I get gibberish.  I did some research online and found out that there is a Microsoft tool called Works 6-9 Converter which allows one to open Works files in Word.
 
I downloaded the Works 6-9 Converter tool from the Microsoft Support website and installed it on my PC.  However, when I subsequently attempted to open a Works word processor file in Word, a dialog box appeared with the error message "Word cannot start the converter Wks9Pxy.cnv" and the file did not open properly (i.e., I got gibberish).
 
I did a little more research online and found out that uninstalling the Works 6-9 Converter, then downloading and installing the Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Package, and finally reinstalling the Works 6-9 Converter may correct this problem.  I followed these steps, but unfortunately when I attempt to open a Works word processor file in Word, I get the same error message and the file does not open properly. ...

INFO ONLY for those suddenly having "no response" with MS Office 2003/2007 Word:

Weeks ago I suddenly got a problem with Microsoft Word (Office 2003) usually failing to respond , unable to open or save files, and just "hourglass thinking". In fact I frequently had to go to Task Manager to close it. Tried everything I could think of and read in sites (renaming "normal.dot", reloading MS Office 2003, loading MS Office 2007 with same result, removing Adobe 9 Pro that had been loaded a week before, using "repair" command.............and nothing worked. Finally I found a solitary blog input somewhere saying that the person with same problem on Vista resolved it by uninstalling "Office Live DD-on 1.4". I had installed that a few weeks before I discovered the problem and never used Office on Vista PC since installation. I uninstalled "Office Live Add-ON 1.4" after many hours of trying other things.............and PROBLEM FIXED!
On my XP laptop and desktop, that Add-On has no impact on Office programs but is apparently a problem with Vista. I did not see any such notice on Microsoft site.

Hi,

I am having problems opening microsoft word files (attachments/uploaded files.)
I am able to save the file to my computer and open them without problems.

The issue is when downloading a file and simply trying to open them from the internet ie as an email attachment. I have also uploaded a cv to a site and when i try and open this i get the same error message

"this file could not be found.
try one or more of the following
*check the spelling of the name of the document.
*Try a different file name
( gives directory path)

Its just strange im sure i could just open documents to view before without having to save everything.

Just to clarify when 'save as' to my machine the documents are perfect. Its just the 'open' function when i just want to quickly view an attachment will not find the file all of a sudden.
hope this makes some sense!

Any ideas??? thanks

An Outlook 2003 user in our California office that is having problems opening attachments from one particular sender. When she tries to open an attached RTF file in an e-mail from that person, she gets the error message shown in the attached GIF file. She sent the RTF file to me and I could open it in Outlook 2003 with no problem. I sent the same RTF file back to her as an attachment to a new e-mail and she could open it with no problem.

She is running Windows XP Pro and says the problem started after rebooting this morning as part of installing automatic updates.

A Google search finds lots of people that get the same error message when opening attachments and the messages go away after clearing a randomly named cache area used by Outlook. I don't think the problem is the same in her case because she can still open attachments from other people with no problem but can't go back and open an attachment from that particular sender.

Any suggestions that I can send to her in an e-mail or walk through on the phone?

We have several end users who have reported the following problem:

While working in Excel, the user(s) will wish to send a file via email. They select File --> Send To --> Mail Recipient (as attachment) and get an error stating that Outlook was unable to open one or more attachments.

If the user saves the file locally (to their desktop or My Documents for example) and then creates a new email in Outlook, they are able to attach the file to the email (by choosing to insert attachment/clicking the paperclip) and send it in that way.

Has anyone experienced this? Is there a reason? Is there a way to fix it? Our users much prefer the shortcut of sending excel worksheets as attachments from within the program.

All the PCs are running Windows XP Professional and Office 2003.

I have a user who cannot open DOC attachments in Outlook 2003. When she tries to open the attachment, it attempts to open the file in Excel. When she opens a doc file stored on the hard drive, it opens correctly, so I know it isn't a Windows file type association issue.
 

A:.doc attachments trying to open in Excel? (Outlook 2003)

This is a good one. One approach would be to narrow down culprits:
1. User - does this happen on other pcs? If you login does it do the same thing?
2. Computer - again is this happening elswhere to same user?
3. Software - Run a repair on office? If its the user profile it may not help.

I work in IT and I've run into a problem I can't seem to solve myself. A client receives regular .msg attachments from a coworker, but he can't open them unless he first saves the .msg files to his HDD. If he trys to open the attachments directly from outlook, he receives the error "the messaging interface has returned an unknown error". No other attachments cause this problem, just .msg files. I have tried reinstalling Outlook but the problem still occurs. The .msg files he receives get forwarded to himself as well as about a dozen other employees, and the rest have no problem opening these attachments. Anyone have an idea what I can try here?

I remember having deleted my Microsoft Office 2007 trial and now I can't find some of my previous word documents that I remember saving on my computer.

Is my suspicion true?

I don't think so. Try installing OpenOffice.org 3.0 and you'll be able to open those files.

I have a user running Windows XP and Office 2007 Professional Plus. With her Outlook 2007, she is having difficulties bringing up e-mails that have attachments. She uses the reading pane and when she clicks on a message with an attachement, the reading panes goes blank and it can take 10 to 15 seconds before the message appears in the reading pane window. Even after she has viewed the e-mail, when she clicks on it again it still takes 10 to 15 seconds for it to appear in the reading pane.

Any other e-mails are viewing fine with no issues. You click on them and they come up just fine.

We run Symantic Anti-Virus Corporate edition 9.0 but I did not see a feature on her program to disable e-mail scanning in case that was the issue for some reason.

No one else is having this issue.

Is there any settings or anything I can look for in Outlook that may resolve this issue?

I appreciate any and all help!

Have you tried turning off the attachment previewer?
Turn attachment previewers on or off
Attachment previewers that come with the 2007 Office release are on by default. If you don't want to use some or any of the attachment previewers, follow these steps to turn them off.

In Outlook, on the Tools menu, click Trust Center, and then click Attachment Handling.
Do one of the following:
To turn off all attachment previewers, click Turn off Attachment Preview.
To turn off a specific attachment previewer, click Attachment and Document Previewers, clear the check box for a previewer you want to turn off, and then click OK.
To turn them on, click to select the Turn off Attachment Preview or specific attachment previewer options.

I have a problem because I need to learn to use microsoft access for a test and the thing is I have Microsoft Office 2007 while the school has Offcie 2003. I really need to know if it is possible to switch from Microsoft Office 2007 back to Microsoft Office 2003 and how?

A:Microsoft Office 2007 -> 2003?

I don't know if it is possible to revert, but would the school be willing to allow you to download access 03 for home use as you are a student there? I know that at least some colleges allow this. If you haven't already asked them it won't hurt to do so.

edit: if they did allow this you would probably have to promise to uninstall the program when no longer a student.
