Q: File (excel and word) vault for windows


I am looking for a reliabe file (mostly Excel and word files) vault for Windows 7. I have not found anything at the moment.

Would you please advise some solutions?

Thanks a lot,

Preferred Solution: File (excel and word) vault for windows

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 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,

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.

A:Excel chart in Word 2010: extract chart values? Lost Excel data file!!!! Help.

Hi welcome to the fourm.
I don't know it reverse engineering is possible.
Something like convert chart to table?

One thing you could try is copy the chart back to a new Excel file and see if more is possible there than in Word?

Like I said never needed this. Have you googled for something like Excel data reverse enginieering?
Maybe something come up.

I am still running Windows XP with Office 2007. Suddenly neither Excel or Word will automatically open existing files when I click on them from windows explorer. I can go to the Open option in the menu bar for Excel or Word, select the file to open and it will then open properly. Are there any option settings that allow for the files to open when click on them? I do not receive any error messages nor does the event viewer provide any error messages.

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.

A:Insert File From Word into Excel

I know it seems it should work, but it doesn't. I'd just copy and paste special between Word and Excel. In Excel, use Edit | Paste Special | Text.

Select All in the Word doc. In Excel, widen column A, format to wrap text, and do the paste special | text.

Not as quick as Insert | Object, but it works.

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:

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?

I can complete the mail merge using the same file on any other computer. The only why I can get the mail merge to work is to save a csv file as a regular excel file. It doesn't matter what csv file I try on, it just crashes word.

Tried unistall and re-install of Office and the problem is still occuring.

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.

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!

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. If I try to open an Excel file as a data source, all I get is a text file with garbage and a message box asking how to convert it.

I was cleaning some old versions of my Internet connection software using Windows Add/Remove Programs, when it seemed to freeze on the uninstallation. After 10 minutes of no progress, I ended the program and rebooted my computer. After restarting, I noticed that all data file icons saved on my desktop were missing, including Excel files, Word documents, and JPGs. The only icons on my desktop were the usual programs and shortcuts (My Computer, Recycle Bin, etc.), as well as all the folders I had saved. But again, the folders were all empty of any data files ? they only had the subdirectory folders, which also were empty. Even sets of folders that go down 3 or 4 levels had no files in them. The best way to explain it is like a tree, with all the branches still in place, down to the twigs, but all of the leaves missing. For example, in the My Pictures directory, I can still see the subdirectories for folders of Baby pictures, Holiday pictures,
Vacation pictures, etc., but all the subfolders are empty as well.

Basically, any data file (XLS, DOC, JPG, AVI, WMV, etc.) saved anywhere on my Desktop is gone. The only data files I still have are saved in C:\ subdirectories, but anything in C:\Windows\Users\Desktop is gone.

Then another window opens, telling me "The feature you are trying to use is on a network resource that is unavailable.

I have a friend who is suddenly experiencing an issue where they are no longer able to Open an Excel file through their Windows Explorer (e.g. when trying to open a Excel file from within their My Documents folder). After double clicking on the file, Excel opens and acts as if it is opening the file but then proceeds to show just a blank worksheet. The file does not appear to be corrupt since they can then go to File/Open from within Excel, locate the folder and then Open it without a problem.

Any suggestions? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated as to the cause and resolution for this.

Have you tried repairing the Office installation (via Start > Windows Control Panel > Programs > Programs & Features > Microsoft Office (version) > Change > Repair)?

Aside from that if the file types are "FFV files (docx), FFV files (xlsx), etc", that suggests you've installed some other software that has taken over the file associations. In that case, you might consider uninstalling that software; otherwise you'll need to reset the file associations, by right-clicking each Office file-type (docx, xlsx, etc.) and using Open With>Choose default program to re-associate them with the correct Office application.

You need to purchase the CD, unless a copy was "bundled" with the PC. Thats not so common now, and it would certainly be well documented if it was. MS Office is relatively expensive.

With the CD, you run it and follow the menus. Its VERY simple.

All current versions of Office since Office 2000 need to be "Activated" with MS (simple to do automatically over the net) or they will cease to operate after a short time.

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.

Hi there,

I am trying to use SQL.REQUEST to pull data from one excel file (a master data file) to another one, and I can't get it to work. I think I don't have the correct connection string specified.

I'm using Excel 2002 on Windows 2000.

The task is, I need to build dynamic queries based on other cells in the "output" spreadsheet, such as, get a count of all records in the master file where the date field is equal to [cell reference] and the ID field is equal to [another cell reference] and a third field is equal to [third cell reference]...
So that, if the values in those referenced cells change, the records that match (and get counted up) will be different.
Also, there will be at least 10 different queries (I do a sum on a field that is a time duration, an average on that same field in another, etc) in different places on the spreadsheet.

I was able to get a simple query to work in Microsoft Query if I used static values, ie, I typed them directly into the criteria... however, these need to by dynamic so that when the same spreadsheet (a report template) is "saved-as" and new values for the criteria are input, the queries don't have to be re-created.

So, using MS Query, I can connect to the master data file and get the correct result... but I believe what I really need to use is SQL.REQUEST, so I downloaded the ODBC add-in and installed that.
I just can't seem to figure out what my connection string argument needs to be.

A:Solved: sql request in excel file, to another excel file - connection string?

Nevermind folks - I googled +excel +"connection string" for probably the 20th time in 4 days... I usually investigate all result about 7 pages deep before giving up, and this morning, all of a sudden a new result popped up right at the top:

at about the same time, my boyfriend finally took a look at it, and he came up with this result: http://www.devlist.com/ConnectionStringsPage.aspx

I used the syntax in this example
Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=C:\MyExcel.xls;Extended Properties="Excel 8.0;HDR=Yes;IMEX=1";
(I almost got up and danced, I was so happy)

Just thought I'd come back and post the solution, in case anyone else ends up finding this thread in the same position I was in.

Now how do I mark this thing solved?

Hello again,

I have a word doc that has a form in it. The form may have any number of fields (boxes) to type text answers into, or be a drop down list to select an answer from. I need an excel macro that extracts all data from the form, but with every five fields starting a new row in excel. So all data from the form will appear within 5 columns in an excel spreadsheet.

field 1 field 2 field 3 field 4 field 5
field 6 field 7 field 8 field 9 field 10

Is that possible? I have had no luck to do it myself.

Sample form attached, thank you

I am using Windows XP, Excel and Word. My address list is in Excel. I start out in Word, selecting the mail merge option and go through the sequence to mail merge labels, when I select PREVIEW the labels, they are completely blank. At the step that shows the labels in which I select which names are going to be used, everything seems normal. But the next step of PREVIEW reveals that the labels are blank. My excel list is in the same format of every other list I have every used to print labels, ie it has Last Name, First Name, Street number, Street name, City, State, Zip. All on one line. I don't know what is wrong. Help!

A:Mail Merge problem with labels Excel to Word in Windows XP

In step 4 of 6, "Arrange your labels," you should be able to type an X (or any other character for that matter) in the first label, click the "Update all labels" button, then see the X in each label at step 5 of 6, "Preview your labels." If you can't do that, then perhaps something in Word 2003 is broken. Visit this site for instructions on how to do a repair:
