Excel, Word of Office XP.

Q: Excel, Word of Office XP.


Hi. I got a customer who is unable to bring up their recent documents in Word and Excel as it is not saving.

Anyway to fix this?


Preferred Solution: Excel, Word of Office XP.

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.)

A: Excel, Word of Office XP.

Okay, need a bit more info.

If I'm reading it right, the programs work fine, in that they can:
open and close documents fine.
save and change documents fine

However it is not saving the documents under recent viewed/edited documents?

What version of all the software listed is this?

A:Can Open Office Run Word & Excel?

Hey, I'm having a problem and don't know where to start.
The problem:
Microsoft Word (installed from Office XP) starts up, displays the Word screen, and freezes, indefinitely. Only way out is to task manager quit it.

Microsoft Excel (Installed from Office XP) starts and works perfectly fine, I can save and everything. The only problem (I've found) is when OPENING a document, it will NOT open a file. If I make a blank document, put a single letter in a cell, and save it. Then try to open it freezes. It will EVENTUALLY open it after about 20-30 minutes of sitting there seemingly frozen up. Once it opens everything works fine, but obviously waiting 20-30 minutes is not acceptable. I CAN open the files just fine using works though. I even tried opening it in works, and re-saving it as a CSV, no change, 20-30 minutes to open.

Microsoft Word (Preloaded part of Office 2007) starts up and displays "preforming virus scan" in the bottom left status indicator, never gets past it. This is why I completely un-installed 2007, and installed Office XP that I owned and used on my previous computers. (This isn't a problem because I uninstalled it, but it might be a clue as to something?)

Any help would be GREAT! I can't find anyone else having the same problems.

A:Office XP, Excel and Word on Vistas

An update to this- I just determined that by deleting normal.dot it will allow Word to start.
However the problem is that whenever Word, Excell, or Powerpoint try to open a file it freezes up. Word at startup loads normal.dot apperantly, so this is why word freezes immediately. But if I delete normal.dot, I can start and use word fine, except for loading. Once I close word, it creates normal.dot, and then next time I try to start it, it won't work.

What on earth could be causing office to not be able to load a saved file?
I have verified that the files being saved are legitimate, by opening them on a different computer.

A:Office 2007 Word and Excel

First I would recommend reinstalling the Office Suite all together and downloading any updates that go with it. If that doesn't work, I would start looking at which programs you have that have built in Office Add-ons. Some of these add-on capabilities have been known to cause massive slowdowns in Office performance.

I really screwed up these programs. I downloaded a free trial of system mechanic and something happened to the programs. When I open word or excel a installer opens and trys to install the program but gets an error message that a cab file is missing. Error 1311 c:\msocache\allusers\90000409-6000-11d3-8cfe-0150048383c9\4t561401.cab The computer is a Dell and on microsoft site said I had to go to manufactor for help. They won't do anything except ot sell me the programs as the warranty is expired. Only other thing I can think of is to restore the computer to its origanal state but it would wipe out all the stuff on it. Tried to back it up on floppys but too many files 80,000. Any help woild be greatly appreciated as I have very little knowledge of computers. thanks

do you remember when you install the (system mechanic) ?

if to you can do this a long as you dont have the system restore turned of on your system


select ( all programs
select (accessories

select ( system restore

now you will be given the option to ( restore to a specific date or create a restore point

select (restore to a specific point

now a window will open with a calender on it

select a date that was befor you installed the (mechanic

then do the restore / now this may fix your issue and it may not

this is the issue with useing programs like this / they normally just make things worse or kill your system

hope it works for you

Hi, I am having some wierd problems with my Office XP. Whenever I open files in Excel, it usually hangs. 10 minutes later it will look ok and it will let me do a couple of things but then it will hang again, and usually not recover. Sometimes it does. The cause of the hanging is intermittent, but the result is usually the same; it just sits there and I get a white screen with the "not responding" bar along the top of the window. It will effect other excel files that are open at the moment as well. It is also happening with Internet Exploder and Word, but not as much.

Anyone have any idea of what this could be? Thanks in advance.

Yo !
Have you tryed the Office repair option (Ctrl panel, add remove programs, office xp, change, repair)?
I got that problem on an XP computer, Excel was not opening at all, was asking sometimes the source files, some others do not. Also i was not able to open any attached excel file from a mail, excel crashed every time.
After the repairment, excel worked out fine.
You can try the reinstall office if the repair does not works (same path on control panel, but choose on the office options the Reinstall)

Somebody help me. Every time I exit out of Word 2000 or Excel 2000 I get an "Illegal Operation" message. If I launch the program and close it again right away without opening a document or spreadsheet, it's fine. If I open a document (Word) or a spreadsheet (Excel), as soon as I close it, even if I make no changes, I get an illegal operation. It's not as much a problem as an irritation because nothing else happens. It just crashes. I'd appreciate any suggestions.

My desktop pc is a Compaq Presario with Windows 95 and Microsoft Office. Recently it has started taking forever to close down a Word document or an Excel spreadsheet. The program itself closes out in normal speed but its the separate documents that take forever.

I have checked disk space - plenty available. I have done the usual maintenance ie defragmentation, scan disk etc.

Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.


A:Microsoft Office-Word and Excel

If you're using office 97, according to microsoft, one possibility is that outlook is journalizing your other office documents. They say to start outlook and under tools / options / journal clear all the check boxes under 'also record files from' list. They say this can cause files to close slowly even if outlook isn't running.

Not sure where to post this, but in the last month Office Word & Excel 2007 have slowed down and progressed to "not responding". Cut & paste are virtually "cut and wait 5 minutes" and maybe it will appear properly.

I have check for viruses with Malwarebytes and AVG and have used Spybot, also. I have also ran MS Diagnostics. Everything seems to be in order.

I am using Vista Home Premium with Service Pack 2.

I know this problem has been ongoing for several years, but this is first time I've had to deal with it and MS Support is as usual not helpful.

Would appreciate someone else's clear mind as mine as become muddled trying to remedy the problem.

I've done a bunch of searching on these forums (and elsewhere) and found a few suggestions on how to fix this error, but I can't seem to find a solution that works. I just upgraded to Win 7 Ultimate (64-bit) and I installed Office 2007. The programs themselves work fine - but whenever I click on a shortcut to either a Word or Excel doc, I get the following error: "There was a problem sending the command to the program." The program will open, but the document won't. I can easily open the doc from the program once it's open, but it's annoying to always have to do two steps (and to see that error) The big solution I keep seeing (for Excel, at least) is the "Ignore other applications that use Dynamic Data Exchange (DDE)" option and to make sure its unchecked (which it is).

Any ideas what I can do to fix it? I haven't tried any other Office programs, so I am not sure if it's all of them, but it's quite odd.

In both Microsoft Word and Microsoft Excel, when I do a "File, Open" command, a box comes up showing the contents of the last directory I used. If I then attempt to use the drop down from this box to navigate to a new directory, it takes 65 seconds before the drop down list appears, and then another 30-40 seconds before the drop-down menu responds to my request for a new directory.

I have uninstalled and re-installed Microsoft office, and I have run the "detect and repair" option in the help menu. Nothing seems to fix the problem. I have no idea why this is happening or what Microsoft Office is doing during those 65 seconds to produce the drop down list and during the following 30-40 seconds to navigate to a requested directory in the drop down list.

I do not have this problem with other applications such as Lotus 123.

Any ideas?

Great Forum. Wonderful, knowledgeable folks.

Had to re-format HD, and seems to be working now.
But for how much longer, who knows.

On the old setup, I had MS WORD and Excel.
Many existing files of both.

I only have, if I remember right, 2 or 3 downloads allowable/available from the
Student Edition of them that I purchased a while ago.

So, I don't want to use up what is left on my present PC, as I have real doubts about it lasting much longer.

I heard about Open Office, and that it is free, and "completely" compatible with the MS equivalents. True ? Or,... ?

Is this what I want ?
Are there "better" free ones tghat would work very well with my existing WORD and Excel stuff ?
If so, suggestions would be most appreciated.

This is a question about the search functions within Microsoft Office Word 2007 and Excel 2007. I want to be able to do searches that would yield both “e” and “é” in the results of a single search. Right now all I can do is two separate searches.

My OS is Windows Vista. An example of what I'm looking for is a search that would bring up "cafe" and "café". It's probably either a way to ignore accent marks or a way to define searches for "e" as if they were searches for “e or é”.

Thanks very much for your help.

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?

I have searched various forums, including this one, so I'm not sure there is a way to resolve this problem.

Every time I start Excel or Word [Microsoft Office 2003 Pro] I have to rearrange my toolbars. When I start Excel [for example], I'll arrange my toolbars [including dragging them]. After I have them all moved where I want them, I'll use Excel and then shut the app down. When I restart Excel, the toolbars will no longer be in the places I moved them to earlier. I have to rearrange them every time!

Is there a way to lock the toolbars in MS Office 2003 Pro, specifically Excel and Word?

I'm running Office 2000 on Win Xp. All other Office applications work properly except for Word AND Excel. When working in either program EVERYTHING works properly EXCEPT:

If I click on the 'Edit' menu, the menu drops down, however only 'cut', 'copy', 'paste' are visible, the rest of the menu never completes (no text, just empty - like a blank VB form). At this point the program freezes completely. After a few seconds the stupid "Notify Microsoft" message pops up, and the program closes as soon as I select "Don't Send".

Some history: This all occurred immediately after a new installation of Office 2000. There WERE problems during the install. 4 files failed to register (error 1904 I think). The 4 files were vbe6.dll, msolap.dll, msolapui.dll and mdt2df.dll.

I tried manually registering the 4 files and no help.
I've uninstalled and reinstalled twice.
I've used the repair option 3 times.

(I did all of the above with Norton Antivirus and all associated programs disabled. I also ended the process of every running program that wasn't necessary for windows)

Any other suggestions?

Just started using a new workstation with Office 2010 installed by OEM. Everything worked fine for a few days, and then every time i attempt to open a Word file or Excel file i get the MS Office dialog box that states "please wait while windows configures Microsoft Office 2010". The dialog box stays visible for 30-45 seconds and then the program opens and works fine.

Ran a repair, four times, didn't fix it.

All of my research leads me to a solution of uninstalling and re-installing. I'm not buying that if everything worked fine for several days, that a bad install will make the program stop functioning properly.

I also noticed, while visiting help within outlook, that the product was still a trial version and not currently activated. I have entered the activation code numerous times with no luck.

Any suggestions? This is becoming extremely inefficient.

Hi, I wonder if anyone can suggest a fix for this...

Then another window opens, telling me "The feature you are trying to use is on a network resource that is unavailable.
Click OK to try again, or enter an alternate path to a folder containing the installation package 'PROPLUS.MSI' in the box below." and there's a 'Use Source' field with a dropdown menu, as well as Browse, OK and Cancel buttons.

Recently, I noticed that my Yoga2 Pro's display keeps blinking and flashing whenever I interchange from Adobe Reader to Google Chrome. The display will just turn black for 1 sec and turn back ON again. Same issue with Office software such as Powerpoint or Excel. If I just work on 1 program and don't interchange programs, the display will be fine. I am very sure it is a display driver issue and it occurs after Win 10 updates. Booting in Safemode also will prevent that problem from happening. The Display driver listed on this website is not working http://pcsupport.lenovo.com/us/en/products/LAPTOPS-AND-NETBOOKS/YOGA-SERIES/YOGA-2-PRO-LENOVO/downlo... and will have the same issue with Intel 4400... I know that this model is obsolete and the warranty is expired. But this is obviously SW update/Driver issue with Win 10. Could someone from Lenvo help to fix this? Thanks a lot!

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!

Unable to open Microsoft Office documents(excel,word) in Internet Explorer when we enforce strict TLS 1.2 protocol (Disabling SSL v2,SSL v3,TLS 1.0, TLS 1.1)on the webserver. We tested by removing strict TLS 1.2 and IE is able to open the document fine.
Error description : We see a Microsoft Excel Security Warning with the following content.
Certificate error
The application experienced an internal error loading the SSL libraries.

When we disabled SSL V2 and SSL V3, the document opens fine but when TLS 1.0 is disabled we are seeing the  pop-up with certificate error. We tried to open the reports in CSV format, 2007 format and 2003 format and all of them have the same issue. Does
Internet Explorer have any restrictions when TLS 1.2 is strictly enabled ?

Note : We are able to download the document using Internet explorer and the document opens fine from local but opening the document from the browser fails with certificate error.

Recently, I'm having slow file loading while opening ms word files and excel files directly from windows explorer. It takes a minute to load, however it opens immediately if I open .doc files or .xls files directly from their application software. It also take a minute for MS Word and Excel software to shut down.

I have run my antivirus (Symantec) and MBAM but they all show no virus was found. I'm not sure what should I do next, please advice.

The only way I can get any MS office programs to open is to right click and choose the "open with" option. I check the box to Use as default, but they still won't open the next time.
I tried run > winword /r to reset word, but that didn't help either.
All the icons are the same, a little blue chemistry beaker.
In properties, the type of files say they are, "FFV files (docx), FFV files (xlsx), etc".
How do I get these files to open the normal double click way?

A:Excel and Word files will not open in Excel and Word

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.

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 recently installed the Microsoft Office 2010 Beta, but this morning its intro screen stays stuck at "Starting Microsoft Office Click-to-Run." Googling it resulted in only two threads, neither of them having the answer.

I'm back to using Office 2007, by simply setting my Word and Excel documents to open by Office 2007 by default, but now my Word and Excel icons have become much less pretty, such as my Word icons becoming a very plain "DOCX" icon instead of the normal "blue W" icon. I checked, and the file types are still regular Word documents. Is there a way to get the pretty icons back?

A:Office 2010 Problems: "Starting Microsoft Office Click-to-Run" & Unattractive DOCX icons for Word documents.

Regarding changing the icon:
Go to either My Computer or Windows Explorer.
Click Tools, Folder Options, File Types tab.
Scroll down to the DOCX file type (file types are in alphabetical order), click on it one time to highlight it.
Click the Advanced button.
The "Edit File Type" screen appears.
There is a Change Icon button in the top right area.
Click the Change Icon button.
You should have other icon choices to pick from.
Side note: If you don't like any of those icons, you can always hit the Browse button,
and browse to where other icons are, (you can assign any icon to any file type that you want, it is a matter of personal preference).
Icons are found in .exe files (executables), some (not all) .dll (dynamic link library) files, and .ico files.
