Q: Solved: Office 2007 Number of Recent Documents option greyed out.

Hi all,

Today I had to do a re-install of my PC, and re-installed Office 2007 Pro. However, under 'word (or any of the other application) options' > Advanced, the number of recent documents entry is greyed out. I had originally got it working with MS tech support, but now, of course, they want to charge me $49.00 for doing it (and of course I did not write down the procedure at the time!!).

Any assistance in getting this entry back would be appreciated.

Preferred Solution: Solved: Office 2007 Number of Recent Documents option greyed out.

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.)

When I click the "beach ball" at the upper left corner of the page, a new window opens and shows me the most recent files I have worked on. The nice thing is there is a push pin that I can select to make sure that file always appears as a Recent Document.

I have figured out how to increase the number of files shown as Recent Documents. Another great feature!

It also shows files that I have deleted from my computer. If I click on such a file, I am told, The file does not exist or it has been moved. Information that I already know. Here is my question. How can I show only Recent Documents that actually exist on my computer?

Your guidance, as always, is greatly appreciated.


A:Recent Documents In Office 2007

I am interested in the recent documents list as well. You say that you figured out how to include more documents, just how is that?

Also, I have a couple of files that I use a couple of times each week, but I can't get them to stay in the recent documents list. After I open them, and close / save them, they are in the recent docs list for a day or two, but they disappear before I next use them. Conversely, I have file in my recent docs list that I haven't used in a year. ( Really )

I have a problem with Office 2007 related to the displaying of recent documents when open an Office App such as Word or Excel.
I've set the number of the recent documents (lioke 6 or 8 or 10 whatever).
The recent documents I work on or create show up when I open the app for a few days. If I do not use the Office apps for a certain time (I have not systematically experimented with a precise lenght of period yet) they just disappear from the menu windows.
I got to click on "Open" and search for them, which is inconvenient.
Anyone got the same problem? and any idea how to cure this bug?
Thanks in advance for any input.

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.

Someone posted a similar problem before, but I don't know if the original author ever had a solution. I posted this on the Office Online board several days ago, but no one has answered yet.

Question from 8/27/08:

I'm using Word from Office Home And Student 2007 with Vista Home Premium. Word was working perfectly until about 5 days ago. I have not installed anything different. It used to show a counter where it was counting the words of the document and then the documant would open. Now it shows a blank screen with the counter at zero. The document itself is not empty. It still shows the appropriate number of kbs on the desktop.

I went online to try to diagnose, repair, and update. It told me that I had
all of the Microsoft updates. (By the way, this might or might not be
related, but other Microsoft updates keep asking me to download them even though they installed successfully.) I uninstalled and then re-installed Office Home And Student 2007 and by doing so I had to purchase a new product key since I misplaced the first one. Still nothing helped.

I did notice that if I clicked on the Microsoft icon in the upper lefthand
corner of the blank document, I could see a menu of my recent documents and even search in an explorer type of menu system. In that roundabout way I could open the files. But if I tried it the normal way, I still got the blank screen.

When I would close the blank document, it said Word has stopped working, that it was trying to recover th... Read more

The older version I have used for years has a straightforward index list of documents. I use the list option instead of icons. All were logically alphabetical, scrolling across. 2007 Office has the most ridiculous mess I could imagine. It clumps together documents that have alike starting names, putting them side by side in columns, rather than one after the other and uneven at that. To quickly scroll and find what I'm looking for makes me dizzy. Is there any way I can change it to a logical alphabetical list, the way every computer system I've used is done?

A:2007 Office Home & Student documents index

Also, I forgot to mention, I put numbers in front of documents that I want to keep at the top of the list for easy access. Files I use most often. Now in the 2007 Office, these numbers aren't under each other. They are scattered. "6." was so far away, I had to scroll to find it.

I've experienced this problem twice in the past week. Here is my current problem:

New Windows 8 computer
Moved Office 2010 install from old computer to new computer
Copied all documents to new computer by installing the old drive in the new computer (NTFS to NTFS)

When trying to open any DOC, DOCX, XLS, XLSX, PPT, or PPTX files that are stored in the Documents folder I get permission errors. Word will open an RTF file just fine. If I try to use any Office programs to save a file to the Documents folder, I also get permission errors. I can move the file to the Desktop and work with it just fine. I can then move it back to the Documents folder.

Here are the errors when trying to open files:
Word - Word cannot open the document: user does not have access privileges
Excel - 'C:\Users\xxxxxx\Documents\Book1.xlsx' could not be found
Powerpoint - The path or file name for C:\Users\xxxxxx\Documents\Presentation1.pptx is invalid.

When I try to use one of these programs to save to the Documents folder, I get the following error:
You don't have permission to save in this location.

I tried copying the files two different ways to eliminate any lingering NTFS permissions. I used a linux box to copy from the old drive to EXT4, then to a linux formatted FAT drive.

I installed Office 2007 Home and Student on this computer a few weeks ago, but I haven't used it enough to notice this until today: I don't have any Office 2007 fonts at all (not a single font in this list: http://www.microsoft.com/typography/fonts/product.aspx?PID=153 ), only the default fonts included with Windows 7. The fonts are not on my computer at all, they do not exist in the Fonts folder accessible from the Control Panel. A few online solutions suggested to check out the 'Fonts' selection under "Office Shared Features" in the Office installer, but no such item exists:I have checked my printer drivers and such as suggested by Microsoft, but everything is normal there (kind of irrelevant since the fonts aren't even in the Fonts folder). I have seen several other people report the same problem on Microsoft Answers and get no solution. I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit with the latest updates. What happened to my fonts?

A:Office 2007 didn't install any fonts, no Font option in installer

When I go to the top left "Office Button" in Excel and go to my Recent Documents I can open most files, but there's one which does not open.

I'm running 64 bit Windows 7.

A little while ago, I decided I did not want things to show up in my recent items list. This was when I was still using Vista.

I found a small registry change online, applied it, and poof, no more items showed up in the "Recent Items" list. Worked like a charm.

This morning I decided, on second thought, it would be useful to be able to reference a list of recent documents.

I have three registry back-ups saved, for October and November 2009. This is the timeframe I think I made this change in. But when I click on the back up registry file, it tries to open the file with notepad.exe and says "The filename, directory name or volume label syntax is incorrect."

Should I use regedit.exe to open these files instead? Or does anyone know the specific registry change I can make to get my "Recent Items" to start listing files again?

Third, is there a change I can make so that only certain file types show up in the Recent Items list? I only want Word and Excel file associations to appear, but not any videos. That was the original issue.


A:Solved: How to change registry to save documents in Recent Items List (Windows 7)

Hi there. I have a feeling that I'm going to feel really dumb when I realize how to do this... but I've been baffled and nothing online has quite worked or applied to my issue. Here goes:

I'm running Windows 7, and have a habit of using the recent documents separated by program on the start menu. In other words, I'll go to Start, highlight Microsoft Excel (as it's a program I use regularly and therefore stays pretty close to the top of the start menu), and mouse over to the right to see my recent Excel documents.

Early on in my Windows 7 use, I had right clicked on some recent files and selected "Remove from this list" and they vanished from the recent Excel document list. However, I can't get them to ever come back.

I've tried resetting my recent document settings under Start Menu properties, even deleting "recent application data" files according to other sites. If I navigate to the files through the folders, I can open spreadsheets and have them show up, but the ones I've removed from the list will not show up, and I don't understand why.

I'm more than willing to provide any additional information, but hopefully someone can tell me this is a rather simple solution.

Hi all.
Is it possible to run MS Office 2003 and MS office 2007 on the same machine.
I teach I.T. and many of my students, as well as the school computer labs have office 2003. For this reason I need 2003 on my machine.
That said I also am seen as the computer guru by fellow collegues, so often find myself sorting out their computer problems or giving advice on how to merge tables in word or create mark shedules in excel. Many of them have 2007, which is very different. Thus running 2007 seems like a good idea.
So is it possible to have both versions running on the same machine?
At this point I am using windows XP - tablet edition.

After installing and updating Office 2007 application for Vista 32 bit, upon opening Outlook, I continue to get an error message about repairing the pst.exe file. I know how to do the repair, however, I cannot locate the .pst file as Outlook will not open. A simple search does not locate the file, and the file is not residing where is should reside.
