Word 2007 opens previous document

Q: Word 2007 opens previous document

If I right click a document and click Open With/Microsoft Word it opens the document correctly.
If I left click on a document it always opens the last document opened with the right click method.
It has only recently been doing this.
I have checked Word settings and reinstalled Word without effect.
Any ideas?
Many thanks.

Preferred Solution: Word 2007 opens previous document

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.)

I have Win7, FF, AVG and MB and am using Word 2007. Whenever I open a saved document Word persists in opening a blank screen (toolbars at top) before it opens my document. I've searched the forums, Googled the problem and tried a few remedies but nothing has worked.

Can anyone solve this for me please?

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.

I have two questions regarding documents created in Word 2007...

1) Can links be created within a Word document? For example, can I click on and item my table of contents and have the document jump to that particular section of the document?

2) Also, is there a way to make sections of the document hidden until the user clicks a specific word or graphic in the document?

I'd like to specify a particular instruction and include a "Show example" link that would make a detailed example appear for those who needed the extra help.

Thanks everyone!

A:Word 2007 - Links within a document? Hide/Show sections of a document?

If you created table of contents through References - Table of Contents, you can hold Ctrl and click on the item in that table, word will take you there. This feature is standard.

Also, to navigate inside document you can use bookmark option.
Insert bookmarks. Word 2010 Bookmarks
Then insert Hyperlink - in the window select second tab "Place in This Document" and choose your bookmark.

As for hiding parts of document, I do not think that is possible.
You can create that in HTML document with javascript, but not in Word document.

I lost a major important Word file on May 16. I worked on this document for hours, saving every minute or so the whole time. When I finished and closed the document, it vanished. The only file left anywhere on my computer was the pervious version from six hours earlier with none of the extensive changes I had made. I went looking for my final version everywhere and could not find it.

I tried several ways to recover it but none worked. I used the Symantec UnEraze Wizard that's installed on my computer (Windox XP) but I ran into a roadblock at the end that I could not solve.

I tried to use Symantec GoBack but it was not installed. I tried to install it but it said it was missing a file and could not run and that I should uninstall GoBack and reinstall it. Useless since it was not installed in the first place and I was trying to install it.

I did a Windows System Restore but the only restore point available was at 9am every day. The file I am looking for disappeared at 9:30 pm, so this is not helpful either.

I also checked to see if, by chance, I had been working on this Word file on my Outlook Express email program and I got a path pointing to C:\Documents\Anne-Marie\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\otqfw5ib. When I tried to follow the path, I got as far as ...\Temporary Internet Files, with no trace of Content.IE5 or otqfw5ib.

I'm using Windows XP Home and Office 2000. Every time I open Word, it opens with a specific document. Even when I delete it and select Blank Page, it reopens with that same document. I've saved other documents since then, but it just keeps opening with this same document. I have to delete the text, insert new text, then save under a new file name. But when I open Word again, it opens to that previous document.

It sounds like the normal.dot template got replaced with the contents of that other file.

Just search the computer for normal.dot and delete it. Word will create a new blank one the next time it is started.

Hi
We have an Intranet on which we've posted user tips etc. These documents are Word documents.

When you click on the link, Word in launched in the browser and the document is displayed...for most people. One of our users gets a blank document each time. No matter which link she chooses. She can open .pps, .xls, .pdf....they work fine.

I checked her settings, I downloaded the most current version of IE (the most current we are using which is 5.5 sp2). These links work fine for me. I checked my IE settings and made sure hers matched mine.

From the link I can right click and save the target to the desktop and that will open in Word and all the info is there, but once it gets to the browser all is gone...

Also, each time I open Word, every document I have worked on in the last few months opens, too. I close each document individually, using File - Close, which I thought would take care of it. But it doesn't, and all these documents open, instead of just the one document I want open.

Hello all,

On the 12th October I was editing a Word 2007 document on my Vista Home laptop. Throughout editing I pressed Ctrl S to save the doc over the previous version. I copied data in from several other files.
I went back yesterday to edit the document again and it has disappeared. The only version of the doc is a previous version dated 21st Sept.
I searched on all files modified after 11th Oct just in case I had saved it under another name. Not in there. The files I copied data from did come up in the search results though, soi knwo the search function is working.
I checked the default Autosave location - not in there.
I checked the recycle bin - the doc is not in there and neither are any ~ files or autosaved files. I haven't emptied my recycle bin for months.
I cannot find a word doc modified afetr the 11th October.

Can it really just have disappeared? It is my MBA dissertation paper and I worked on this edit for an awful lot of hours.

Many thanks.

I do not wish to count the front page and contents pages of my document so I would usually de-select the "Link to previous" button, but in Word 2007, the "Link to previous" button never seems to be highlighted (active) for clicking..

Therefore it is forcing all my pages to share the same header and footer as the page above...

I'm working on a Windows Server 2003 Terminal Server. We have 9 users in our office connect to this server to do everything they need to do. All users are having the same problem. There were some documents that got saved to the auto-recovery (this was several months ago). Since that time, every time we open a word doc, it shows the auto-recovery list on the left. when we close Word it asks:
"The document recovery task pane contains some recoverd files that have not been opened. Would you like to view these files the next time you start Word?"
Yes, I want to view these files OR
No, remove the files, I have saved the files I need.

We click NO to remove the files, hit OK and it tells us it "can't delete the file, can't read from the source file or disk.". then we have to click OK 6 times for each file that is in the auto-recovery pane on the left.

Any idea how to make this go away??

Please help! I have mozilla firefox which uses .pdf for saving any word files. I created a document and I had no option to save it as anything but a pdf file. I need to convert this to a word document asap for work. Somehow when I opened the pdf file in a word format all that comes up is letter, symbols and numbers. My document is not gone but can't be opened in a word format so I can then save it to word. I know I sound illiterate and using the wrong terminology but I'm hoping I gave enough info. Also, when I open the pdf file, my PC only wants to print it. There's no command to close it. When I do try to export the pdf, I get a page that wants me to subscribe to Adobe ID. I already have that but it won't accept my password and keeps emailing me security codes. By the time I get back to enter the code, Adobe ID says that code is invalid and gives me a new one. I'm so perplexed. Why oh why can't there be an easy fix to anything!!!

I believe that the document properties in Word 2007 (especially author) is being picked up from the login name in windows XP. I know how to change the document properties on a single document, however, I would like to know how to change the document properties for WORD -- period. In other words, I don't want my login name to be the author, I want my REAL name to be the author. Also, my company name is NOT in my login info, so there is no company coming up, I would like to change these properties so that everytime I start a document it's already there. So far everytime I change the properties, then close the document and start a new one, it goes back to the original. (I assume this problem is being perpetrated throughout the Office Suite...)

Hi there

My appoligies if there is already a thread on this topic, but I have tried to go through everything and have not picked anything up. My problem:

I have designed a letterhead layout for one of my clients in Microsoft Word 2007(there is an image inserted into the top of the document, then I have inserted text boxes containing contact details etc), now when the client opens the letterhead, she only sees the the image, the text boxes are gone???

Now she has just sent me an email explaining her problem, but when I open the attachment I see the text boxes with their content and everything else. Are we going crazy here? The ONLY thing I can think of, that would cause this problem, is that I am using Office 2007 and she is using and older version, but what boggles my mind here, is that I have saved the document as "Word 97-2003 document" and my client still can't see the text boxes (only the image header). Am I doing something wrong here? Is there something need to install?

I am using Windows XP, Professional, version 2002 (Service Pack 3) with Microsoft Office 2007, my client says she is also using XP 2002, but with Microsoft Office 2003.

I'm new to this and word 2007, so please be patient with me.

i need a bit of help. I've got approx 200 word documents (template.rtf documents) that are unique to our system and i have to back them up (in case they are changed/amended or deleted by users, and also so that we can look at these and decide where we can condense them i.e. similar letters into one document etc).
Anyhow I have managed to copy these over into a folder but the problem I have is that the name of the document is not on the actual document so when these are printed out an passed over to a third party to look at and change it looks like i am going to have to write the name of the document onto each one.

Is there a way of automatically inserting the name of document into the actual document (the footer maybe) without having to open them up?

So I am officially desperate! I worked on a project in Microsoft Word 2007. I then went to go open it the next day and all of the text was completely gone!! I am only a beginner when it comes to computers so I have absolutely no idea what happened.
To better understand the problem here were the chain of events:
I worked on 2 documents, saved them in a folder, and then closed MSWord
I then worked on them the next day not realizing that for some reason they were opened as "Read Only"
Seeing that, I copied the the text and saved them in new documents
I went to Documents and attempted to move the new documents into the folder with the originals but an error message reading something like "this action cannot be completed because the file is open in another program" when the file was NOT open
In my frustration I attempted to move it over and over again to no avail
I gave up and closed the Documents folder and turned off my computer
The very next day I went to open the project and both the original documents and the copied ones were COMPLETELY EMPTY!!!
the files were still there but the all of text was completely gone!
Through Microsoft forums I've repeatedly tried the "Recover Text from any File" and "Open and Repair" methods
They've remained completely empty

In a Word document in Office for XP if I type in a URL or email address it immediately turns into a link (Coloured blue). This does not happen with Word in Office 2007. Is this by design and how do I get a URL or email address to appear as a link please?

Hello, Welcome to SF,

Try these steps and see whether it works

In Word 2007, go to Office button > Word Options > Proofing > AutoCorrect
Options > AutoFormat As You Type tab, and check the box for "Internet and
network paths with hyperlinks".

Hope this helps,
Captain

Need help trying to save a word 2007 document. Am running Windows Vista. I have been working on this document for the past couple of days, a high school maths investigation with lots of equations and graphs copied over from 'Autograph' a 3d graphing software. I have been able to save it with ease with all this stuff on it until an hour ago. When I press CTRL+S it opens up the save as box (even though i've already saved it before). Then when i press save in this dialog box the box closes for a half a second before opening again without me pressing anything. I do it again and again and notice the little loading bar that tells you it's saving in the bottom right hand corner of the document gets stuck and then stops when the box opens up again. I've tried to rename it and this doesn't work. i copied it into an old word document and then saved that document and that document wouldn't save either. i got rid of it off that document and the old document saved perfectly. I closed it just to check it was actually not saving and it isn't. Is there something wrong with my document? or is it word? please help!

I have found that when I run word 2007 or any other office 2007 program and go to the open a file icon, you then get the open file window that has all of my word documents. Since I saved them with thumbnails, there is a thumbnail of each document saved. Now here comes the problem; over on the right there is the preview pane and when you click on a file for preview, I get the error message: "This file can't be previewed because of an error in the Microsoft Office Word previewer". Of course I have googled this problem, but I haven't found much info other that to run the program with the /a on the end of the desktop short cut which turns off many of Words add-ins and other things that I really don't know about. Yes when you run it in this mode, the preview handler does work as it should. Does know the cause of this behavior and have a solution?

Since running the program with the /a locks out plug-ins and such, I should of known that a plug-in was causing the problem. I disabled Adobe plug-in and it now works. How about that.

From time to time, when I open a Word document, it is opened read only. I have no idea why this happens. It is fairly infrequent (3-4 times a month) and seems random.
 
The problem is that I don't notice that it's read only, so I go about merrily on editing the document. When I try to save it, I get the Save As dialog. In  then have to save it under a different name, delete the old copy, and rename the new one. In addition to a royal pain, it screws up my archive log.
 
Is there a way that I can have Word warn me whenever a document is opened read only?
 
Thanks

A:Can I get Word 2007 to warn me when a document is opened read only?

I did a little more research and found this website:
 
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/12630878/word-vba-document-readonly-status-incorrectly-returns-false

It has a document_open macro which I adapted as follows:

Sub Document_Open()
If ThisDocument.ReadOnly = False Then Exit Sub
MsgBox "This document is read only."
'UserForm1.Show
End Sub

I saved it in a Normal code module and set a breakpoint. It does get executed every time a document is opened, but the readonly test is always False, even when the document has the Read Only flag set and the title bar clearly says "(Read Only)".
 
Is there a way to modify this macro so that the MsgBox statement will execute when a document is opened read only?

Hi,

I need help with word 2007. When I open my document (.doc format), word automatically reformats it during loading. After this, I see a lots of garbage in the contents list. This garbage are in fact lines from my document. In the document they look just like other text, but they appear in the list. When I update the style of these lines (for example it uses normal and I just click on normal style), they disappears from the list. I save the document but next time word reformats it again and I have the exactly the same garbage in the contents list. I realized I can stop the formmating during document open by ESC, which at least does not corrupt the document again, but how do I repair the document permanently?

What is wrong with my document? How do I repair my document?
