Solved: Word 2010 won't display open document

Q: Solved: Word 2010 won't display open document

I bought a new HP desktop computer about a month ago and upgraded Windows 7 Home Premium to Windows 7 Professional. I also installed Office 2010. All was running just fine but a few days ago when I tried to open a Word document, the splash screen would display but the document wouldn't open. When I run the mouse over the task bar for Word, I can see the correct document or at least a small version of it. However, clicking on it won't display the document so that I can edit it. I searched for normal.dot but couldn't find it. I was able to open the document with winword /safe but I don't want to have to continue doing that. Does anyone have any ideas?

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.)

Hi all,

I'm looking for a way in either Excel or Word 2010 to add text to a line before the text. So, for example I have something like this:


And then I want to add "1 " before each line in a way that is copy pastable, so it looks like so:

1 Name1
1 Name2
1 Name3

Is there anyway to do this. it's mostly just to help with copying text from Word/Excel documents onto forums so it formats correctly. Any help at all is much appreciated


A:Solved: Word/Excel 2010 Adding text before each line in a Document

Hi Matt,
It's probably a little cleaner to do it in Excel than in Word, but also a few extra steps. In Word:

You can run a find a replace. Without including the quotes, find "^p" (the paragraph symbol) and replace with "^p1 " (there's a space after the 1). This replaces the paragraph break at the end of each line with another paragraph break and then "1 " at the beginning of the next line. The problem with this method is that the first line won't have a 1 in front of it (because there's no paragraph break before that line) and the last line will have a stray 1 after it. But this should be relatively minor cleanup.

Alternatively, in Excel:

Insert a column to the left of your names. Without including the quotes, enter "1" in the first cell and copy it down your spreadsheet. Insert a column to the right of your names and enter this formula (assuming your names are now in column B):

=A1&" "&B1

This should give you the result you're looking for in column C. Hope that helps.

Hello All

Win 7 Prof 32 bit
Office 2010

I've been trying to create a Task in Outlook from a Word Document that I have created on this computer. The idea is that a shortcut to the document is created as an Outlook Task. Click on the shortcut, and voila - there is the document.

The "Create Microsoft Office Task" icon DOES send the document to Outlook as a Shortcut in a Task, however, when I open the task, Outlook says:"Outlook blocked access to the following potentially unsafe attachments: Shortcut to 'document name'."

It's NOT an unsafe attachment; Outlook WILL OPEN this document if I send it as an email attachment. Outlook will open .docx files types.

This is a one person computer...no network, no sharing. And this problem has been driving me crazy. This would be a wonderful feature, if I can get it to work.

Anyone have any ideas what I (or Outlook) are doing wrong?

Thanks for your help

A:Creating a Task in Outlook 2010 from a Word 2010 Document

I think this will do the job for you:
Add & Create Outlook 2010 Tasks From Word 2010


You can create a task from Word 2010 document and save it under Outlook 2010 tasks. This feature is by default concealed but you can make it apparent on Quick Access toolbar and use it directly.

In order to use this feature, you need to make this feature apparent on Word 2010 Quick Access Toolbar, head over to Quick Access Toolbar and from small drop down button click More Commands.

You will reach Word Options dialog. Hit drop-down button present beneath the Choose commands and select All Commands. Now scroll-down the list and find Create Microsoft Outlook Task command. Select it and click Add (>>) to show it on Quick Access toolbar pane. Once added, hit OK.

First save the document and then select any portion of the text in the document from which you want to create the task, from Quick Access toolbar, click Outlook task button.

Upon click, it will create Outlook task for the Word document and you will reach Outlook Task dialog where you can set Start and Due date for the task and add more information about it. Save & close the task to view it under Outlook tasks.

When opening task in Outlook 2010, you can also view the document from which it was created from, just double-click the document to open it.

I have fixed the problem and I offer a solution here.

First a description of the problem I was having: I would try to open a document by clicking on it on the desktop or from a folder in Windows Explorer and Word would open but the document would not. I could open the document from within Word.

BTW, there is a thread about this in the archives but the solution there didn't solve my problem (running winword.exe /regserver form Start/Run and deleting the doc key from the HK Root section of RegEdit) .

I finally solved the problem and maybe it will work for you. I uninstalled MoveOnBoot and Icon Packager, installed Registry Mechanic and let it fix everything, and then rebooted. Voila...problem solved.

I've had problems with Icon Packager in the past and am now going to classify it for my own purposes as a virus. As for MoveOnBoot by Gipo, it showed up as a tab in the program properties tabs which said to me that it was interacting with every programs startup.

Hope this helps.

I am running XP and Word 2000 and Nortons. Word will crash if you leave the document open for a while (there is no specific time frame) and then select close (icon). The error - Microsoft Word for Windows has encountered a problem and needs to close. The details are: AppName: winword.exe
Modname: kernel32.dll
modvers: 5.1.26002180
offset 0001eb33

This has pretty much happened since I got this laptop. I have reformatted and reinstalled everything (due to another problem) and still have the same problem with word. I have used the same CD on other computers to install word and they do not have the same problem.

I use a variety of templates and plain documents in my work and can not pin point it to one template.

If you leave Word open with a document (no matter what size) and come back to it later this is when the problem happens. I started to get around it my saving first then closing, but this no longer works. The save completes and then I select Close and this is when it happens - you get the dreaded pause and then you hear the whirl of the computer and then you get the Microsoft Word for Windows has encountered a problem and needs to close. Firstly I could put up with it but is now just a nusiance.

I work at a small non-profit and we have updated two computers with new computers running Windows 7. We use MS Word 2003. I have checked all threads on forum related to this issue, but nothing seems to correct our problem. I would be grateful for any help.

Description of issue: With a Word document open, one should be able to click "File" > "Send To" > Mail Recipient As Attachment", or any of the other mail options, and have the email composition window of Thunderbird pop up. What happens is that Word is attempting to send the attachment via Windows Live Mail. The computer basically freezes. If you try and abort or get out of Word, and error pops up stating you can't close Word until the email has been sent. Finally, you have to force a shut down of the computer.

Internet Explorer shows Thunderbird as default email client. I have check all of the other obvious places for setting the default email client, but I can't seem to find a conflict anywhere on the computer showing Windows Live Email as default client.

As a side note, this employee was using Outlook Express as their email client prior to the computer upgrade and all setting were imported into Windows Live Mail, which was initially used. The employee did not like Windows Live Mail, so I installed Thunderbird. It is used as the default email client and the only issue has been with Word.

This is for a friend so I don't have access to the computer yet. She downloaded a word document from her hotmail by clicking on download then open instead of save. She was working on the file and then she stated she went to File > Save. She did not get prompted to save the file in a different location (that usually happens on other Office versions).

She went back to Word but cannot locate the file in her open section or the recent document list. She is on Windows 7 so I finally found the temp folder for her computer but could not locate the temporary file that would have been saved.

Is there any other locations other than the temp folder and the default folders that the file could have been saved? Personally I don't think it saved at all.

I work at a small accounting firm and earlier this year we purchased some new laptops which run 64 bit Windows 7. Since then, we have started to upgrade Office on our computers. On one of the Windows 7 computers, I installed Office 2010 last week. We also use CCH's program ProSystem fx Engagement. Now, when opening Word inside of Engagement (not sure if this happens outside of Engagement because the user can't recall it happening) an error occasionally comes up which says "error creating obj document." The user hits okay, which is the only option, and then receives a second error that says "obj document is nothing." She then again selects okay and moves on. It doesn't seem to cause any issues with functionality so I'm not rushing to fix it but we want to get rid of the errors and hopefully have an idea of how to correct it in the future.

Please keep in mind I'm a CPA helping with computer issues. Since we are relatively small, we don't actually have our own IT department or person. We have to go outside. I do pretty well keeping my home computer up and running if I can research the issue and find a solution. I've looked for a while and can't find a solution in a dumbed down language that seems to fit the issue.

Is there a mechanism in Word 2010 (and also Excel, perhaps) which allows me to DELETE the document I'm currently viewing?

I'd imagine it would be under the "File" menu if it existed, but I've not found it so far.

An example of its use: I prepared a document of things to take to a reunion. My PC was still on when I got home, displaying the list (which I'd saved, as I went along). I didn't know what I'd called the document, and I wasn't certain where I'd filed it, but I know I wanted to delete it.

A:How to delete the current document in Word 2010?

Of course you can't delete open files!
But you can hover over file->open to see the last files you opened. Open the one you want. Do a fake "save as" to see the folder it's in.

Now you know the file name and location, so delete it in windows file explorer

This new word is annoying. I'll be typing a paragraph and then as I go down the page lines I just typed will disappear, or they will blend into another which makes them unreadable. Sometimes single spacing will turn into double spacing, or into no spacing. Sometimes lines of text will be doubled under each other. All the text is still there the way I typed it, but it's not visible when reading over the document. If I want to go back to read what I wrote I have to insert returns into these invisible lines of text to have them appear again. If I scroll up then I can't see the last lines of what I wrote, they are not even there until I again have to insert my cursor and then start pressing enter. I don't understand why everything keeps shifting around like that. Shouldn't it remain static throughout? It's the most annoying thing to have to type a document and have to go through these magic tricks every time.

Hello experts, I have a word file that appears to have been corrupted. We were working on it through SharePoint and at some point the style information seems to have been corrupted. When you use the style inspector and click on a location in the text it will say the correct information. For example a level 2 heading will look and appear as a level 2 heading in the text and have the correct style attached. However, when you use the navigation pane or create a table of contents nothing is indented as it should be (level 2 is not subordinate to level 1). I have read that there are table of contents styles in Word but I don't know how to change these. Does anyone know if this would fix the issue?
I tried manually to 'reset' a few styles (highlight text and reclick 'level 2 header' ) which fixed the issue in that instance. However, this is a long document (150 pages) and I wouldn't want to do this for the whole document.
If anyone has some advice it would be greatly appreciated,​

The first thing you must do is copy the file from the stick to the HD. Don't make matters worse by trying to work with it from the stick. There's a possibility the document is already corrupted, but the problem you describe may not really be document corruption.

The conventional solution is this:
In the Print dialog, switch to another printer and then back, or close Word and delete the files you find by searching for
Then restart Word.

In Word's Open dialog, select the file, click the arrow beside Open, and choose Open and Repair.

I am trying to format a very long manuscript and am having a page numbering issue.

I know how to link/unlink headers and footers and create numbering within sections. So, my chapters are sectioned and numbered and each chapter starts with page 1.

I also need a running total of pages. I can't seem to have two formats in the same header (a section page numbering and an overall page numbering) so I planned to put the chapter numbers in the headers (unlinked to previous) and the total page numbering in the footer because they can still be linked.

Sounded good, but when I format the page numbering to start with '1' in the header, even though it is unlinked, the page formatting changes in the footer.

Is there any way around this?

I'm using Word 2010 in Microsoft Office Professional 2010 and Windows 7 Professional, if that helps.

I have got Microsoft Office 2010 installed on Windows Vista and on Windows 7, and when I open a document in Word, I would like to view it at a zoom of 100% instead of the default zoom of 150%. I tried to follow the instructions over here in order to reduce the zoom permanently, but the macros simply disappear each time I close Word and open it again. I also followed the idiot's guide to installing macros as indicated in the link above, and the macros worked...but as mentioned before, they refuse to stick around.

What do I do in order to prevent the macros from disappearing?

Thanks in advance for your help

A:Word 2010: how do I change default viewing zoom of document?

i've never needed macros - i use the zoom slider at the bottom-right of the document window.

with saved documents, it seems that the zoom level is saved with the file - so if you saved at 100%, it will open later at 100%.

to set the level for new blank documents, use the slider, then close down word - the next new document will appear at that same level, with no need to save.

that's how it works for me, anyway.

just tested, and it keeps the level after a reboot too.

When saving a Word 2007 document as a webpage (htm, html), an extra folder is automatically created besides the hmtl document itself. This folder contains background information like pictures, wallpaper etc. Is there a way to prevent that folder from being created in the first place? I've got Word 2000 on another computer, and when I save my word documents as html files over there, that extra folder is not generated. The only time that folder is created in 2000 is if my documents contain pictures, wallpaper etc. In Word 2007, it is created all the time, even though my documents are just plain text.

A:Solved: Word 2007, saving document as html document: how to get rid of extra folder?

Managed to find the solution, it was very simple after all. One has to save the document as a filtered webpage and click "yes" when a box pops up warning you that you will use certain featuers which are specific to Office2007, such as the background. Then the document will save without that extra folder and files.

Hi all.

The other day whilst in the throws of fixing another unrelated problem I came across a strange and annoying Word Document problem.

When I bought this word document up it present a very unusual icon. It was grayed out and part of the title contained a ~$ then the name of the document.

When I tried to open it, the word document only opened up to the gray page just before it should turn white displaying the text, and there it froze.

Nothing worked after that! The freeze was so bad that the only way to close the window was to turn the computer off at the tower.

After rebooting I tried it again 2 more times with the same problem freeze occurring in the Word document.

Today I again found another document that caused the same problem, this time the icon for that document was normal but right beside this icon was another malformed grayed out ~$(name) icon.

When I tried to open either of the 2 icons I got the same freezing up problem, just as before.

I tried a previously suggested step in that I opened "Word" and from there navigated to where the bad files were located.

In turn I only hi-lighted each, and at the bottom of that window clicked on the arrow for the drop down box.

I was advised that one of the presented options was to repair the file. No such option was present.

So there you have it. Any advice on this problem please?

I ascertained that all the aforementioned "defective " Word documents originated in the same folder. After performing several search functions with the criteria as ~$.doc no other such files were found on my computer, other that the already mentioned.

All tests suggested would not repair the said documents.

I have now deleted the offenders and I will monitor the situation. If I run into problems again I will re-post.

Please help point me in the right direction.  I checked the File association on Internet settings and document type docx is associated with Word, but it won't open.

Try refining this symptom description.  What exactly do you mean by "it won't open"?  Answering that might explain why you are posting this in an IE forum.  E.g. right-click, Copy Shortcut whatever it is that you are calling
a "broken link" and Paste it here.
Otherwise, try right-click, Save target as... to put the file into your Downloads (Ctrl-j) and then use right-click, Properties to find its
full path and name.  Note that that would be quite different from what the Copy Shortcut step would have shown.
Next I suspect that the Set Associations GUI tool may not be showing you the correct information.  FWIW it certainly doesn't show me the correct information in W8.1.  So, I would try checking if you have an explicit association and file type combination
by using the assoc and ftype commands in a cmd window.  In fact, instead of just showing the ftype for the current association I would use this:

Word 2007 User 2: Gets the error message: ?Word cannot open this file . The encryption type used is not available. Contact the author of the file. More encryption types are available in the High Encryption Pack.?

Therefore I suspect some kind of encryption pack must be installed. I believe the user 1 has XP and user 2 has Win 2000 pro. are using XP. Do you know where these encryption packs are available? The other possibility might be for me to reduce the encription level when I create a password protected docx but I have no idea how to do that.

Is there a solution to this problem?

Kind Regards

A:Word 2007 Can't open encrypted docx from Word 2010

Hi Chris,

I've been looking at this for a while, but cannot find an answer.

The only thing I can come up with, is an alternate suggestion, which I am sure you have probably thought of : use something like 7ZIP to encrypt the file, and then send that to your friends.

I have a Word document which I cannot open, and which cannot be opened by two other people on different computers. It was created in Word 2010, saved as Word 97-2003, emailed to a person with Word 2007, who made some editing suggestions using "Track Changes", saved it without changing the file type, and emailed it back to the creator. Now, nobody - including the person who did the "track changes" is able to open the document with the editing suggestions, and I'm trying to work out why.

The document was originally created on a Windows Vista machine, the editing was done on a Windows 2007 machine, and I have tried to trouble shoot on my own computer, which runs Windows 2010 64, with Office 2010. When I try to open the document by double clicking it, the Word Logo appears, saying "opening in protected view", but then nothing more happens. Word never opens completely. Word has not frozen, because clicking "cancel" closes it down. If I open Word first, and open the document from "file - open" the same thing happens - "opening in protected view" and then nothing.

I assumed that the document had been corrupted somehow, but the really wierd thing is that Outlook 2010 is able to preview the entire file, and I am able to open it without any difficulty in Open Office 3. The the whole document is there, without any corruption. If I then save the file within Open Office as a .doc file, and a new name, Word is still unable ... Read more

I received a document in Works and when I tried to open it in my Word, I got the message, "Word cannot start the converter Works 632.cnv.

I went to Google and asked the question and tried several times to get some understandable result but to no avail. When I was directed to the Microsoft Download site it said at the top, in effect, that they couldn't help me.

Can you?

I am having a issue with a couple of workstations in which if I click on a Word document icon on the desktop, in a email or in Windows Explorer, Word will launch but the document does not open. Once Word is open, I can click Open and navigate to the file and it opens up with no problem.

Both machines are running WinXP SP2. One has Microsoft Office 2003 and the other I just upgraded to Office 2007 basic (it was having the same issue with Office 2003 so I tried to upgrade to see if that would fix it). The one that is running Office 2003 worked fine until I uninstalled and reinstalled Office 2003 to correct a email issue I was having.

I have tried resetting the extensions in Win Explorer to have any .doc file extension open with winword.exe, I have renamed the DATA folder in the Registry, I have tried detect and repair Word from the Help menu in Word, I have tried re-registering Word, I have uninstalled and reinstalled Office....I'm not sure what to do next.

I know at least one of the machines came pre-installed with Office 2007 trial version. I'm not sure about the other one. Could "remnants" of that program be causing issues?

Any thoughts? Let me know. Thank you.
