Error on saving MS Office Excel 2007 files to MS Office 2013

Q: Error on saving MS Office Excel 2007 files to MS Office 2013

We have an upgrade on our computer units here in the company, my problem is when users save their 2007 excel files an error pops up, Errors were detected while saving "File Name". Microsoft maybe able to save the file by removing or repairing some features. To make the repairs in new file, click Continue. To cancel saving the file, click Cancel.

By the way, the files were save on the file server and users access them through single roaming profile that we created with full access on their folders.
i am hoping i could find an answer.

thank you

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,

A charity is considering upgrading its workstations to Office 2013 from Office 2007.
They have lots of files in the .docx, .xlsx, .xlsm, and .xltm formats that they would need to access on a daily basis.

- Would the upgrade cause compatability problems with working with files created under these above formats?

Hi

One of our users saves powerpoints onto a network share, she has been doing this for years, I upgraded her to office 07 yesterday and this morning she is reporting when she saves a file on the network share it reverts to the previous changes.

The thing is when you close the file and reopen after you have saved, the changes are there. But if you wait 30 seconds the changes are reverted back, has anyone come across this before? There is no error message and annoyingly it looks to have saved the file but it doesn't.

Anyone got any ideas, many thanks.

I should decline these, right?

thnx

A:Office 2007 updates when I only have Office 2013

No don't decline these updates.
Office 2013 updates in the background & does not show up in the usual Windows Updates section. I am using Office 2013 Pro & I have it set for installing updates automatically.
It would be best just to let any updates that are required to be installed. Often certain updates are incorporated to cover a few versions of Office as they earlier ones need it so they incorporate it to cover all the applicable versions, which may also include later versions.
Therefore just leave it alone as fiddling with updates often causes trouble. Also it is just a whole lot of unnecessary work for you.

Hello. I have some .xls files on a cd which I could open fine until yesterday. The files were created on my Acer Aspire 5732Z (Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium system x64 - based pc) using Microsoft Office Excel 97-2003.

Yesterday, I opened the cd on a different laptop (Acer Aspire 5733 64 bit operating system - windows 7 home premium, service pack 1). This laptop opened the files using Microsoft Excel starter 2010. I saved the files back to my cd when I'd finished, then safely ejected the CD using the correct method.

Now when I insert the CD into either pc, it show the CD drive but there are no visible files, so I can't open anything. I tried the error checking tool, but it can't check for errors as it says "windows cannot access the disk".

Can anyone help me open the files please? I have all the files backed up elsewhere, except for the two I worked on yesterday, but I really don't want to have to type them up again unless I absolutely have to as it will take me many hours. Any help would really be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

I recently purchased a new computer and transferred my files from the old one. Both systems run Windows 7 with the same version of Office (2007). After the transfer, Excel files will only open when accessed from Excel - otherwise, they try to open in Word. If I click on a file and select "open with," the only option is to open with Word. Any ideas?

You will recognise other Excel extensions in the same area which you might want to change in the same way.

Just bought a new laptop with Windows7 64bit installed-my first exposure to Windows7. I had Office 2007 installed on my old Dell 32 bit machine. I had also recently pruchased Office 2010 and installed that on my new machine.

Now, when I try to open those 32bit 2007 files with 64bt 2011, Iget an error message that "no picture file is available", or words to that effect. When I try to "open with", the only option displayed is "Microsoft Office" with an icon that looks like a picture file. When I try to browse to the proper office program(Excel, for example), there are none of teh Office suite programs displayed, only "Microsoft Office".

I can navigate seperately to the proper progran, Excel, etc., and drag the file into the application, and it opens, and all seems to work OK. I "save as" the proper application file, but it still will not open with double-click on the file name.

I have not seen this particular item in the forums and would appreciate very much some help in fixing this issue.

Good Day,

I've often used the Files and Transfer Wizard to move files in the Windows XP environment, including those for people moving from Office 2003 to 2007, however, I've just been asked to move a person from a computer that would result in them moving backwards from Office 2007 to Office 2003; is this possible? What concerns should be considered? Obviously if they have a number of documents saved in the 2007 it could be problematic, though could the compatibility pack offered by Microsoft offset that concern? Thoughts? Thanks.

Hey All,

Here is my issue. The Company we consult for has not transitioned all of the way to Office 2007. We have a number of machines that still have Office 2003. Compatibility Pack works on almost all issues.

Current issue is one of our users received a PowerPoint 2003 that has embedded PowerPoint 2007 files. When the user opens the PowerPoint 2007 file Office 2003 shuts down. He has to download the 2007 file to his desktop.

From what I can see this is because the file conversion process shuts down Office 2003 before attempting to open the PowerPoint 2007 file.

Another issue that may be complicating the error is we had to run a Fixit patch from Microsoft that was causing Excel, Word and PowerPoint to be scanned which caused long opening times. I don't remember the KB article for that one at the moment but will find it if I need to.

Thanks for any help in advance.

Good day everyone and thank you for reading my post.

I'm in trouble and need help. I am a statistician that LIVES by Excel. And my Excel is broken. I had 2007 since I started by business 6 years ago. About a month ago Excel started crashing intermittently when saving work on my employee's computer. Then it started on mine. Our data is stored in the cloud through www.cubby.com. I have full antivirus protection on all my computers with N360 (never even 1 time used a computer without antivirus protection since the early 1980's). Never had a virus get through N360.

There is no rhyme or reason why the crashing is happening. It only occurs on saving, and happens intermittently. I open a sheet, save it as a different name (to keep the original sheet unharmed) and it crashes. I open it immediately again, try saving again, and it works. I have tried saving on different physical drives and there is no difference. I mainly work with a single spreadsheet template and that is the one crashing. It may happen with other sheets, but I really never use other sheets to test it with.

I upgraded to Office 2013 early December 2014, hoping that would fix things, and it doesn't.

When we try to reopen those same spreadsheets that we saved during the crash, we get an error message stating the file is corrupted and cannot be recovered.

My spreadsheet templates (I designed from scratch myself) are about 1.5MB in size and do have macros. The macros are ones I programmed myself, ... Read more

Ok, well up until yesterday my father was using Office 2000 with Microsoft binder for work. He just got a new laptop for work and he's got Office 2007 installed. From the looks of Microsoft's site it states that 'Microsoft Unbind is not included with Office 2007.' Looks like what I really need is Microsoft Binder from Office 2000. Is there a place I can download it (legally) or purchase it? He literally has thousands of binder files (*.obd) that he needs to be able to access. I've tried searching with nothing turning up.

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.
 

A:Microsoft Office Binder (*.obd files) with Office 2007?

So further searching turned up that Unbind for Office XP/2003 is just a waste of time for Office 2007 and no point in looking further into that.

So then I found this:
http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=822622

Which seems to me if I can track down a Office 2000 disc I should be able to install JUST Binder 2000. Results show that it works along side Office XP/2003 so I don't see why it wouldn't with Office 2007. It would only be used to unbind old files, not create new ones.

If anyone has any other thoughts that would be great.
I'll look into what I wrote above tomorrow and post back with the results if need be.

We are wanting to up-grade our current Office suite Office 2003 to either Office 2010 or Office 2013.  Our PC's are running Windows 7
 
I would just like to know what peoples opinions and advice is on this?

A:Up-grade from Office 2003 to Office 2010 or Office 2013

 I can't speak to Office 2013, but I've done numerous upgrades to Office through 2010.  When you install the new version, you have the option to keep the old version or just replace it.  Starting with Office 2007 the familiar menu bar has been replaced with the ribbons which take a lot of getting used to for folks used to older versions.  There's a little program called UbitMenu that will add most of the menu bar functions back in the 2007 and 2010 versions that a lot of folks find helpful.  If you do opt to have two different versions installed at the same time, what happens is that when you switch from one to the other, it goes through a juggling act that takes a minute or so.  It's a bit of a pain, but if you need it, it could be a convenience.

Starting with Office 2007 Enterprise x86, going to Office 2013 Standard x64, no matter which way I try to go about it always ends in every Office application crashing (Ex: MS Word has stopped working..) as soon as it is opened.

I cannot use the "upgrade" feature during 2013 installation as it will not install Office products of different architectures side by side, so my only option is to uninstall 2007 and install 2013, which produces the crash. I have searched for a MS documented 'best practice' or recommended method of achieving this to no avail.. also looked for a MS removal tool for 2007 but came up empty.

Has anyone else encountered this problem?

If you have information on a MS best procedure or a MS removal tool, please let me know! Any other suggestions such as a manual technique would be very much appreciated as well.

I am about to upgrade to six Windows 7 machines and am seriously considering staying with my Office 2007 for Word and Excel (and PowerPoint, which I rarely use). I cannot find any compelling reasons to go to Office 2013 at this time and about the only reason I can think of that "might" make it worthwhile is something few reviewers seem to talk about. That's load time.

I will be putting SSDs into my two main machines for OS and apps so that should certainly help, but the laptop and other office machine won't have SSD (at least not for awhile). Time is money and I open and close Word and Excel many times a day.

Is there any chance that Word and Excel 2013 will load so much more quickly than Word and Excel 2007 that it's worth the upgrade?

Thanks!
 

A:Office 2007 vs 2013 - loading time?

Hi there,

I wouldn't say load time is a factor when comparing the two versions. The OS helps, because it prioritizes what it keeps in memory from the number of times you open an application, so it should be faster the more you open it regardless of the version. I'd always recommend upgrading from Office 2007, there were just too many issues, like charting (which is partially broken), and much better in subsequent versions. 2010 is pretty solid, but I personally prefer 2013 because of the rich feature set.

If you really just don't want 2013, I'd recommend at least upgrading to 2010, which is much better than 2007. If it were me, I'd just go with 2013. There have been many advancements, like slicers, sparklines, timelines, flash fill, Power Pivot, not to mention the under-the-hood changes.

Hi there
I have some EXCEL addins mainly for getting stock data in real time (or almost real time) from places like CBOE (chicgago board of options Exchange etc). Use a lot for Options trading etc.

When I try and install I get message : EXCEL IS NOT INSTALLED.

Major Showstopper for me this one although if you don't use addins it probably won't matter to you. Sounds just a small problem but this is actually a GO-NOGO type of situation -- it's NOGO.


(Same prob with on both W7 X-64 and W8 RP x-64).

Cheers

A:OFFICE 2013 X-64 some EXCEL addins don't work

That doesn't really surprises me. The addin is probably looking for a specific version number on Excel and doesn't recognizes anything outside a very particular range and simply ignores newer versions. Or it may be that the new Office is simply incompatible with existing addins.

Similar issues happens with most addins in most programs too. I particularly suffer it with every new version of Thunderbird breaking all existing plugins (reason for which I almost never update it).

Excel 2013 has been crashing for over a year, HELP!!! Tried everything
I have a Toshiba P855 with 16GIGS of memory and Office 2013. I have been on the phone with Microsoft for 13 months complaining about how Excel 2013 Office Pro keeps crashing randomly. At first they told me my macro was corrupt. I knew it wasn't because it runs all day long on office 2010 on my desktop which has Windows 7 it was on and off with them for weeks and hours and they finally said that it has to be something wrong with my laptop. It will crash sometimes when I go to copy and paste simple task on a new spreadsheet without any Macros or no conditional formatting and it is real pain in the butt. When it does crash I can load that same file to my memory stick, open it on my desktop, close it, re open on my Toshiba Office 2013 and it runs for a while.

Is there ANYTHING that can be causing this from the laptop drivers or other programs. I'm at a lost and feel Microsoft once again is giving me the run around. It gives me different crash reports within excel too so they are not always for the same reason it crashes but when it crashes anything I have open within excel crashes too. It's ONLY excel that crashes. No other programs and my lap top is fine. It is NOT my anti virus. It will crash when I try and cut and paste ONE CELL

I have recently set up a new network and 4 desktops for a client. The server is running Windows Server 2008 and the desktops are all running Windows 7 with Office 2007. When ever the client goes to save a Word or Excel document to a network share, the applications takes 20-30 seconds to save the file...even very small files. Opening files is quick and other applications (database) are performing well.

I have read in other forums about poor performance when there are mapped drives that are no longer active. This is not my case as this is a brand new environment. Also, notepad and word pad do not have the same issue, it seems to be the way Office is interacting with the network. Any thoughts?

Hi All, In Excel I have a worksheet (W1) that has a table (call it Table A) from Access in it.
In Excel, another worksheet (W2) has cells which should show the values in the cells in Table A

Well, I solved this after an exhaustive day working with Office Access and Excel.
There are about 7 complicated changes you must make to get the Data links to work.
One big mistake I made was not saving a table after I changed it.
If you don't do that, the Access->Excel exports just return the old data.

The ?problem? I?m concerned about is that I noticed existingExcel 2007 xlsx files are now saving with fewer Kb.
I have a Lenovo W700ds and a W541. Both computers are running Windows 7 Pro 64bit.The W700 has Office 2007 and theW541 has Office 2013.Both versions ofExcel are 32 bit as far as I can tell.
Until recently I was primarily using the W700ds but have nowswitched to the W541.


after I saw a larger file losing KB when saved, I did a test with a file that had not been altered or openedfor over two years. I copied it twiceand added a -1 and a -2 to change the names.The file was a small 832 Kb file.When I opened and saved on the W541 running Windows 7 with Excel 2013,the file saves with 771 Kb.When Iopened the file using the W700 running Windows 7 with Excel 2007, the computeron which it had originally been created, the file saved as 830 Kb.Both saved smaller but the newer computerrunning Excel 2013 was much smaller.Iam seeing these same types of ratios of reduction in size for much larger Excelfiles as well.

I have not documented any actual problems or loss of data withany of the files to date and I have used an Ultra-Compare text file comparison which found no differences.
Is there any reason to be concerned about this? And, if so, what to do?

I have installed a small network in our office.  I have 2008 server and all the workstation are runnin windows 7 and office 2007.  Saving files to the file server from Office is slow.  Any other application works fine.  File copy works fine as well, very fast.  I have one windows XP and that is fast as well.  This only happens with windows 7 and office 7 saving file to the network.  Local save is fast as well.  Please please help.Thanks

A:Office 2007 and Windows 7 Slow saving file to the network

I have spent a month researching this problem.  You will need to disable SMB2 on the server that holds the share.  To do so:
Add a REG_DWORD entry named Smb2 with a value of 0 to HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanServer\ParametersThen reboot the server.

Hello,

When I try to open a 2007 Word or Excel document I recieve as an attachment in Outlook 2003, I get the following message:
"This action is only valid for products that are currently installed". Office 2007 compatibility pack was installed and it still did not work.

I then uninstalled Office 2003, uninstalled the Office 2007 compatibility pack and then I ran CCleaner to clean up the registry. I updated my OS (currently has Windows XP SP3) with all updates, reinstalled Office 2003, installed Office 2003 SP 3 and then reinstalled the Office 2007 compatibility pack.

I still get the same message when I try to open an Office 2007 attachment in Outlook 2003.

OS is Windows XP SP3 fully updated
Office 2003 SP 3 fully updated

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance for any hel on this issue.

Are you running Windows in your VMWare installation or is your WMWare installation on your Windows machine?

It sounds like (drivers aside) there were some shared filed that may have been wiped that VMWare was using that belonged to Office 2010.

Office 2016 Installation Routine Deleting Older Stand-alone Apps






I can't say I wasn't warned. I was part way through installing Microsoft Office 2016 on my primary workstation when I got a message that said, "Stop, you should wait to install Office 2016." The error message went on to say that if I decided to continue anyway, my copy of Microsoft Visio Standard 2013 would be removed. Since I had the original disk from when I purchased the software, I went ahead. Bad move. It turns out that when Microsoft says that Visio 2013 won't work with Office 2016, it means it won't even have the chance to work. Any attempt to reinstall the software will be thwarted. The fact that you paid for the software is beside the point. You're basically out of luck. When I went to the Microsoft community forums, which is where Microsoft handles much of its tech support, I discovered that I wasn't alone. Apparently hundreds of people who'd purchased stand-alone Microsoft Office products were affected, and they weren't happy about it.

Furthermore, the problem extended far beyond Visio. Users with Microsoft Project, Publisher, Access, InfoPath and SharePoint Designer were also affected. Likewise, Microsoft customers who purchased Office Apps that are normally part of Office suites but may have been purchased separately, such as Outlook 2013, were also affected.

Hi

OS: Windows 8.1
Office Version: Professional Plus 2013

Every office application I open seems to have a classic unthemed title bar and not maximise correctly. When opening an office application a number of things happen:
The application opens behind any open windows
The application when maximised appears to be open full screen with in an invisible frame
Drop down lists within the application instantly close when clicked on

Here are few images showing what I mean:





Steps taken to try to rectify the problem:Reinstalled Office after having used Revo Uninstaller to remove any left over traces
Rolled back to a time I don't believe the problem existed, thought this may have existed from the start but never realised due to lack of use
Reinstalled Graphics Card drivers
Turned off any OS resizing options
Tried changing the OS theme back to default
Tried changing the screen resolution

I should also mention that this only affects office applications and no other applications seem to have any issues like this.

I know I can get around the issue of it being maximised, as can be seen from the screenshot. The issues with dropdown boxes etc is a pain, any help you guys can give would be appreciated

A:Office 2013 - All office applications have sizing and title bar issues

Have you tried an Office repair. This is how to do it with Windows 7, Open Control Panel, select Programs & Features, scroll down to Microsoft Office 2013 & Right Click on it & select Change & this will show a couple of Repair options to try. Windows 8 might be different as I haven't tried it.

Any idea when Office 2013 will be available for download / upgrade?

Thanks!

A:Purchased Office 2010 w/ free upgrade to Office 2013

Hi there
it's in the Ms store already -- although IMO I'd stick to Office 2010 if I were you.
Anyway YMMV so here's the link (UK store) .

Microsoft Store United Kingdom Online Store - Office Suites

What you'd do to get the upgrade price I don't know but Office 2013 IS available for download. Try phoning / emailing -- actually a better option these days is to use a FAX believe it or not for this type of question. Emails tend to get lost as people have 100'000's to deal with, phone calls are diabolical --endless menu systems, loads of waiting and people on the other side of the planet who are incredibly difficult to understand.

The lowly fax machine when it chatters into life usually gets INSTANT attention these days . !!

Removing Office completely can be difficult. Refer to the website below. This explains how to remove Office 2013. You may have to remove office 2010 as well & then reinstall office 2010.

Folks,
I have been using Office 2003 and 2007 since it came out. I am finding a few quirky things as of late
as the PST file grows in Outlook ( or as we call it Lookout!). SO, I am thinking of moving
to Office 2013 Business Edition ( NOT Office 365).
My question: has anyone here had good luck in moving 2003 PST Files to Outlook 2013? Are there
any special tricks or got-cha's I need to consider ?
There where issues moving this file to Outlook 2010 , so I did not even bother trying the 2010 version.

Any insights on this or direct personal experiences ?

thanks !

On my husbands computer we are running Office pro 2010 on Windows 7.I would like to upgrade it to Office pro 2013. But in Outlook 2010 he has like 40 folders with subfolders full of emails. When i upgrade will Outlook 2013 grab all the settings, folders, emails and put them in correctly? I know office 2013 does not go onto of office 2010 because i did it on my own computer but i do not use outlook on mine, i use WLM so i do not remember what it did for outlook because i do not remember if i put an account in there after i installed it or not. I did mine months ago, call it a senior moment.

Does anyone here using Office 2013, did it as an upgrade and found all their settings, folders, emails, calendar and everything else get transferred into outlook 2013 correctly?

I do have a .pst backup just in case but sometimes when putting this back it messes up everything and i do not want to spend hours fixing it nor a divorce (lol) over this.
