Q: Solved: Reading .docx documents

I have Microsoft Office Professional 2000 and Microsoft Works 2000. I have one client who keeps trying to send me .docx documents, which I think are Microsoft Works documents, but I cannot open it with either of the above. Is there some way I can set up my Folder Options (or elsewhere) so that I can open and read .docx documents?

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.)

People keep sending me files using the above file types. A lot of it is for church verses, etc. I tell them that I have no program to read this but they send them anyway. I usually type them back and say use another method. Is there any program out there that will read doc or docx programs? Free if possible. Word processor will not read the docx files nor notepad or wordpad. Nothing I have opens these files. It gets annoying that everyone else has this systems but I don't. Hoping for some advice and a free program or a hint at where the program is. Thanks

How do I add a tag to .docx documents in Vista? The field in which to do this only shows up for documents with a .doc extension. Can I make or change a setting so that this option is always available for all .docx documents?

I bought a new computer that runs Windows 7. I installed my copy of Office Ultimate 2007on it, then I uninstalled the trial version of Office 2010 that the computercame with. Then I transferred my files to my new computer.

Every Office program works correctly except Word 2007. While it does recognizes Word 97-2003 documents, it will not recognize Word 2007 documents (docx) and it will not create them either.

Instead, they are displayed with the wrong icon -- not the Word Document icon (blue and white with the W on it), but as a white rectangle withlines across and DOCX on the bottom. I instructed the computer to open these files with Word, and it does open them. In fact, I can edit and save them. However, they save as the unrecognized DOCX files and not as a Microsoft Office Word file.

If I run Word and instruct it to save a New Microsoft Office Word document, it also saves them as the odd DOCX files and not as Microsoft Word Documents. Thus it seems like Word will not make Word files.

When I check the file properties by right clicking, it says this for the type of file: "DOCX File(.docx)." It also says that Microsoft Word opens these documents.

If I check the properties of a Word 97-2003 document, it says it isthis type of file: "Microsoft Office Word 97 - 2003 Document (.doc)."

When I discovered the problem I re-installed Office Ultimate 2007, butit did not fix the problem.

Dear all,

For some reason my installation of Word 2007 has stopped opening .docx documents from desktop shortcuts of from Recent Files in Windows 7. I get the error message "There was a problem sending the command to the program" and Word opens, but not the document. I can open documents from Open>File within Word.

Other web resources suggested it might be a registry problem so I changed all registry entries for .docx to .docx.old and rebooted, then manually configured the shortcuts using Open With, choosing Word 2007. Even doing this Word is not actually recognising the .docx as a Word Document - the file type still shows ".docx file"

I have tried repairing Word and even reinstalling, but to no avail. Anyone got any ideas?

System is 64 bit version of Windows 7 Home premium running on Dell Inspiron 1545 with 2.2GHz Dual-Core Pentium Processor and 3GB ram.

Thanks in anticipation.

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.

Hi there

Please help me choose a device for reading ebooks and documents

I read a large amount of documents (PDFs, RTFs, DOCs, but mostly PDF ebooks) on my desktop and my laptop. Its not exactly as easy on the eyes as reading actual books or printouts, so I try to print out as much as possible, when I can afford it, but lately it is not cost effective because of the price of paper, ink, etc. Also, I want to read on the go, and my laptop is too heavy to lug it around.

First I Googled the web in search for some service which would printout my pdf's in a double-sided book/booklet form and then mail them to me. Couldn't find anything like that. Pity, because it would be useful if it was cheaper than buying a high-end printer.

Then I've thought about getting an Amazon Kindle. Looked good at first, but then I discovered the fact that it cant read PDFs and DOCs and I would have to purchase books all over again even though I already have gigabytes worth of pdfs and documents on my desktop harddrive. Funny how Amazon dont market the fact that it cant read PDFs and bury critical reviews to the bottom of the page. Sneaky, sneeeaky Amazon and Jeff Bezos. Nice try.

I've also thought about getting a PDA, but the screens are waay too tiny.

So I guess the best option is to get a tablet PC. But are there many lightweight tablets with a kickass screen and a long battery life?

I keep lots of recipes on my computer. When I search for an ingredient I want to use - say Marsala wine - I will use the Windows Explorer search feature within my "recipes" folder. If I have saved a recipe as a .pdf or .doc, the file will appear in the search results; however, if the file was saved as a .docx, it will not appear even though I know it is there. I recently started using PowerDesk and have tested the search to see what happens in that application. It finds the files, but they all show up with the same name "document.xml". The only way to tell which file is which, is to look at the path information where it will show the file's name.docx with "/word" at the end.

Odd...but then the document does, in fact, open.

But the document that opens is in compatibility mode [Read only] mode. [SEE ATTACHMENT #2: "This Is What Opens"]. This is odd!!

The .docx format is a newer format introduced and used in Office 2007, and still used in 2010.
You need to install this Compatibility Pack so that she can view the new format in older versions of Office.

What other random things in 8 should i be aware of going on without my permission?

A:.docx

I've never heard of .doc files automatically being converted to .docx. Generally speaking, the .docx is a better file format as it's a compressed xml format. Saves you on disk space.

Q: Docx

michelec

A:Docx

docx is the new format that office 2007/2010 uses for doc files. Essentially they are compressed xml files.

If your friends don't have these versions of office, they won't be able to open the files. I'd just suggest changing your default file format to .doc and then you won't have issues with people who have older versions of MS office.

W:\ is not accessible.

The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable.

testdisk 6 found something...i ran a scan it found something but i was unable to do anything with what it found...

is formating and running a recovery my only option?

A:Solved: ext usb hdd not reading...

Hi , I would take the offending hard drive out of the case and install it internally in a desktop computer. I would then use Ubuntu as a live cd and see if you can see the files and then copy them onto a usb stick or an external burner. Etaf has good instructions for doing this if you look at his threads. It has worked really well for me in the past where a computer would either not boot or the MBR had become corrupt etc.

I have a problem I can't seem to work out.
I have Asus AiBooster runnning on my desktop so I can keep I eye on temps etc, lately it keeps reading that the cpu is running at 100% constantly.
I have also checked windows task manager and that reads the same.
If I reboot it corrects itself but then something will make it do it again, I can't seem to narrow down what is causing this.
Anyone have an ideas?
Thanks in advance

Just installed my new Corsair XMS2 DDR2 2gb stick, but XP/motherboard (Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3P) only reads it as 1gb. Previous setup was 2x1gb Corsair XMS2 DDR2 in dual channel mode (color coded slots).

At first i thought that was the problem, so i shutdown PC, disconnected PSU, and swapped slots of the 1gb stick with the new 2gb, thus assuming disabling dual channel mode and reading the sticks individually? Booted up to still find XP reading the 2gb as 1gb.

Do i need to change something the BIOS setup?

I am running Win XP. My computer has two CD drives. One just reads the other reads and writes.
I am finding that recenty some CD's just do not register at all. I insert them into the drive. The led flashes for about 20 seconds then nothing. If I go to My Computer it shows nothing in the drive at all.
By way of example. Today I upgraded my Cell phone to a Nokia 6110 Navigator. The Nokia CD loaded perfectly but the maps Cd from www.66.com just will not register with either drive.
This has also happened with a few other CD's recently.
Any ideas?

I have a Dell Inspiron laptop with windows XP and am having great difficulty in reading from a CD with MS Office Professional 2007 which I want to install. I have used the CD on my desktop to install Office with no problem but my laptop will not read from the CD. Other CDs are picked up without difficulty. I have recently had to replace my laptop hard drive which had become corrupted so am now installing the programmes that I want to use. Is there an obvious solution to this?

My neighbor recently trashed his Dell computer, so of course I snatched it up for parts

Now my problem is I took parts from my HP (CPU, RAM, HD) and put it in the Dell because it holds more RAM. Everything is working fine, got a clean install of windows going, however under My Computer, I only see the one HD. The HD is showing under Device Manager and it says it's working fine. I'm just trying to get it so I can use both HD's to download and store info too.

Any help is much appreciated !

When I create or download a document as a DocX,(usually by default), it tries to open with Internet Explorer and it never can. I always have to right click and tell it to open in Word. I get a lot of attachment in this format and want to be able to click and open. Since I can create them, save them and then not be able to click and open them, somethig is not working right.

I'm suddenly unable to access any of my WORD documents. First it takes a long time. Then a window pops up saying it cannot find it. Then, a notepad window pops up, with that document in gibberish.

I'm using windowsXP, and the Opera browser - as I have for the last many years.
 

A:.docx unavailable

there are three things that come to mind. 1. corrupted files. 2. missing file association. 3. word is either uninstalled, corrupted, or needs re-registered. first to try is re-register word. go to the start menu, programs, accessories, and click on command prompt. type "winword /r" (without the quotes) and hit enter. then open word and try it. if that don't work, go to the word document and right click on it, choose properties, and click the open with button (it could say "change"). make sure it says word, and put a check in the box that says always use this program, or something (forgot the exact wording). if that's not it, take the files to another computer with word on it to see if they open there. if they do, it may be time for a new os (you really should before 6 april anyway).

I have just received a word document as an email attachment into outlook from a colleague using office 07. The PC's in my house are running XP pro SP3 and office 2003. When I try to open the attachment word tells me that its from a newer version and may not be 100% but I can read it. When I try to open it on my other PC for some reason it trys to open it with Adobe and can't read it at all.

Where do I tell Outlook what application to us to open attachments, or Iam I doing somethig wrong.

Any help would be appreciated.

A:Problems with Docx

You will need to download the compatibility pack so you can open docx documents in earlier versions of Office.
