Unable to save new Word or Excel document

Q: Unable to save new Word or Excel document

I recently changed computers. I saved all of MY Documents And loaded tham into the new computer, along woth my Office 2000 software. My OS is now Windows XP.
When trying to save a new document I get the following message:
"Folder C:\Documents & Settings\(my name)\My Documents\(title)\ isn't accessible. The folder may be located in another volume or protected with password" I can access all of my previous documents. Just cannot add to them.

I do not have password protection. Does anyone have a clue? is Office 2000 not compatable with XP? This XP is getting to be a pain in the butt!

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.)

It sounds like a permissions problem as though you have access to open the file, but not modify or save it.

Is this on your work network or a home network?

Do you know how to use permissions and folder/file security?

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 lost a few hours of work due to:
Suddenly unable to save a file in Excel. No warnings etc. Blissfully working (and saving) along but when I boot up again later I found the file 'not saved' but a random number file eg; BDF45000 in directory. Opens up in Excel but with only some data.

I did:
Run repair, Office 2003 Proff. (No change)
Check for 'read only' (Not the problem)
Use Reg Mechanic, cleaned up and defragged... (No change)
Save under different name. (No change)

I use AVG... could it be that a third party app interferes with a 'proper save'?.. or AVG interference whilst excel tries to save? I am a bit paranoid at this stage... not trusting the pc. Ideas?

Each time I want to save this specific file after a modification, I got an error message and MS Word shuts down. I tried to copy/paste the text in a new document but it doesn't help.
What happened is that I first wordprocessed a part of this document with Trados (translation managing software) and thought the problem was due to this but even when copying the "trados-free" part of the doc and pasting in a new one I still can't save it: Word closes without saving.

any help would be greatly appreciated

When I save an MS word document from my Kingston stick to my Documents folder, it disappears from my documents folder. Why does this happen and how can I stop it from happening?

A:when I save an MS word document it disappears

I'd like to clarify a few things.

When you "save the document", are you transferring it from a flash drive to the My Documents folder on the main drive?

OR

Have you opened the document and then saving it to "My Documents" on the main drive?

OR

Is the "My Documents" folder one a folder on the "Kingston stick"?

Or are you doing something else?

I'm hoping someone might be able to point me in the right direction with what appears to be a problem with Word.

I have a Lotus Notes application that stores a lot of information, and part of that is output to a word document for printing. A user opens a document in Lotus Notes, presses a button and a Word document is created with the relevant information in it. It does this by getting Notes to launch a Word template file with the layout how we want it, and passing an XML file with all the required values from Notes so that a VBA function in the Word template can read this information in. It's quite a convoluted way of doing things I'll agree, but I am just working with a a system that was developed a long time ago and in most cases it works well.

When the user is done making any changes to the Word document, there is a macro button in Word that they press to mark the document complete. This makes the document readonly, sets a few custom properties and then saves the document.

In most cases, if you were to run through the process, everything works fine. Sometimes however, a small number of users are finding that their work isn't saved. If for example they launch a new word document, make changes and then close word, then go back to that document and make more changes before pressing the Complete button in Word, they find that the next time they go to the document it's in the state before their most recent changes, which are lost.

Hi,

A friend of mine has MS Word 2003 and though it always used to work, a couple of days ago, it simply began to refuse to save anything. She is typing something for school, and when she tried to save the document, the "save" dialog box disappears for a second, then pops back up.......nothing else can work, of course, so long as that box is there........she tries repeatedly to save it, but it will disappear and reappear immediately each time. The only way she can do anything is to remove the name in the "name" area and then just click on the "x" at the top right of the dialog box. At that point, everything she's typed disappears and the MS Word page is blank again.

I've never heard of such a thing, but I'm not real familiar with the Office products. Does anyone have any idea what is going on and how to fix this?

A colleague of mine swear that she saved her Word document. At least half a dozen of time before closing it.

Now, It's gone. We looked in every folder possible. Did a search (querying the hidden file and folders and The system one)

and there is nothing.

We did a search by words in the document itself and nothing.

It wasn't saved on a Floppy, CD or USB drive nor a network drive.

Is there a way to get Word 2000 to save the printer settings in with the saved document?

Example: My favorite word processor, Lotus Word Pro, will save such things as which pages were printed last, whether it was printed duplex or normal, and which printer it was printed to. So, if I open the document, print it to my HP5 in duplex mode and then save the document, the next time I open and print that document, it has those same settings already set.

One of my user is having this problem on her Windows XP PC:

Dell GX260 with Windows XP Professional running 512MB RAM, Office XP, Acrobat 5.0

When opening a Word file & edited in Word XP, the user cannot SAVE or use SAVE AS the file, when try to exit out the file, get prompt to either SAVE, CLOSE, or CANCEL the file, at that point it will still not save the file, the only way to exit the file is to hit CLOSE to exit.

I initially thought this might be a Word Xp problem, so I ran the repair tool in Office XP, that did not fix it.

I then uninstalled Office XP, reinstalled Office XP, but that also did not fix the problem.

I then ran the Office update to download the latest patches from MicroSoft, but that also did not fix the problem.

I then UNINSTALLED Acrobat 5.0 from the PC, that FIXED the problem.

WITHOUT Acrobat 5.0 on her PC, the user was now able to open & edit a Word file, and able to SAVE the edited file, also able use SAVE AS to save the file as a new copy.

I then reinstalled Acrobat 5.0 thinking the previous copy of Acrobat 5.0 on the PC might be corrupted, as soon as Acrobat 5.0 was back on the PC, the same problem with the SAVE feature came back in Word XP.

I then installed the patch update for Acrobat 5.0, that did not fix the problem.

At this point, I am out of clues on how to fix it....The user tried Acrobat 6.0 before on the same PC, but decided to reverse back to Acrobat 5.0 because of format problem with 6.0.......so Acrobat 6.0 is no... Read more

Two people use my computer, Nathan and Michael.  Both are Administrators.  When Nathan is logged on his Word 2003 documents are saved in:
C:\...Nathan\Documents.  When Michael is logged on his Word 2003 documents are also saved in:  C:\Nathan\Documents.  Obviously, the way it should work is Nathan's Word documents should be saved under his log-in and Michael's documents should be saved under Michael's log-in.  I can't make that happen.  Here's what I've tried so far: 
 
I go to Control Panel, Tools, Options, File Locations.  When I click Modify I can indicate a different folder for saving Word documents, but I can't change the location "Nathan."  Also, any change I make just adds the new extension to the existing.  Example:
 
C..\Nathan\Documents    Modified to:  C..\Nathan\Documents\Documents, etc.  Whatever I choose is added onto the existing location
C..\Nathan\Documents. 
 
I hope I've explained this clearly.  Any Word 2003 experts out there who can help on this one?  It's really got me puzzled.  Thanks in advance.

Hi There

I'm not sure if this is possible to do using VBA. Here is an example only.

In an Excel spread sheet, suppose that I have the following in Column A starting in Cell A2 with the coresponding Numbers in Column B starting in cell B2 :

Revenues $100,000
NOI $50,000
Costs $10,000
I also have an MS Word document minimized that has the following words: The words obviously could change.

I have been working for this company for 1 year and have made revenues of $XXXXXX. My NOI are only $XXXXXX and I also know form my accounting department that my costs are now down to $XXXXX.
What I want to do now is the following. Instead of copying and pasting from the Excel to the word document the dollar amounts, I want to create a macro that picks the dollar amounts from the Excel worksheet an places them in the proper places in the word document where the XXXXX are. To create your workbook and the MS Word Doc, use the generic default names (book1 and document1)

I believe that I have expalained myself on what I want to do. keep in mind that the text in the MS Word document is not fixed. The XXXX can be anywhere. You can use the words revenues, NOI and costs as identifiers in the word document. Also, in the Excel workbook, the information need not be specifically in Columns A or B. But once again the identifiers are the same, Revenues, NOI and Costs.

Thanks,

Mario

Hey,
I have just the thing!

I am a Macro novice so please don't expect me to be able to explain how this works.

If you create a button and assign this macro to it, when clicking the button it will export everything between two cells into a word document (as an image).

The important bits you've got to worry about are:

Set wd = wdApp.Documents.Open("C:\test.doc") - c:\test.doc is the location of a word document (you have to set this up).

Range("A1:G22").CopyPicture xlScreen, xlPicture - The Range between cells is what is coppied.


Sub PasteToWord()

Dim wdApp As Object
Dim wd As Object

On Error Resume Next
Set wdApp = GetObject(, "Word.Application")
If Err.Number <> 0 Then
Set wdApp = CreateObject("Word.Application")
End If
On Error GoTo 0

Set wd = wdApp.Documents.Open("C:\test.doc")

wdApp.Visible = True

Range("A1:G22").CopyPicture xlScreen, xlPicture
wd.Range.Paste

End Sub

Hope this helps!

Hi all,

I've had this recurring issue with Windows 7 and I can't seem to work around it.

I often do a little bit of office work at home and I generally email myself the files I'm interested in while I'm still @ work, sign into my company Outlook webmail when I get home, download the files, and work on them @ home.

Now, I've noticed something strange with Windows 7 and it's baffling the hell outta me!

When I open a file directly from an attachment, I can edit it fine etc., but when I attempt to save it, it says I am unable to save to the specified location! I've tried a "save as" and created a folder with no permission restrictions whatsoever and it still refuses to save! I cannot save it anywhere!!

If I save the attachment first and then edit the saved attachment, all is fine - it seems to me like a user access issue, but I can't be certain.

Hello, would you please assist me in solving this problem: I have an Excel object (Excel.Sheet.1) in MS Word document. I'm trying to write a Visual Basic macro for MS Word to change the data in cell A1 of this table. How can I access the cell? I can only activate the table for example like this: ActiveDocument.Fields(1).OLEFormat.Activate - this leads to the same result as double clicking on the table object...

I know how to access MS Word tables, but the problem here is that I have to work with an Excel table.. I suppose only an Excel macro can access it and modify it... And if I write an excel macro to do so, how can I call it from my MS word macro script? Does solving of this problem involve OLE, DDE...? Maybe I should run the Excel application to modify the table and then close it.. so far I have no success in doing that.. this has to be implemented in a single MS word macro.

Thank you!

The main problem is that I need a summary section that lists the number and types of risks found above, and then the details of each individual risk below. So a very simplified example:

Report for ENTITY 1.

Summary
1 High Risk
2 Medium Risks
6 Low Risks

Detailed Information
Risk 1: RISK 1's NAME
Severity: High
Infomation: This is the information about risk 1.

Risk 2: RISK 2's NAME
Severity: Medium
Information This is the information about risk 2.

I just need a push in the right direction as to where I might get the information I need.

Hello Everyone.

I need a help with the VBA macro.

I have one excel file & a word file. I need the data in the excel sheet to copy in to the word document.

This is what i need,

1. When you open the excel file, it has two columns Units & Comments.
2. The data in the Unit column need to replace this "XXXXXXXXXXXXX" in the word document,
3. The data in the Comments column need to replace this "cccccccc" in the word document,
4. once the unit column & comments column data is copied in to the word document. I need the word document to be saved with the file name of "XXXXXXXXXXXXX".

As a end result, i would have each file for each row in the excel file.

Is this possible? Could someone help me with this thing?

Thank you so much for looking in to this,

I have an excel file with over 2000 names that I need to make a word merge document out of. I copied and pasted the information from excel into word 2000. I put it all in tables so that it would be separated by the fileds so that I could sort it alphabetical by city and state. But when I go to make the merge document, I already had a letter to merge the names and addresses into, it will not merge. What have I not done, or still need to do? Can someone help me please. I missed my deadline 2 days ago.

<b>Hi to All</b><p>
Having received (many thanks again !) such a great reponse to an earlier 'thread' - wondered if anyone could assist with this small problem a good friend has :-<p>
On opening 'Word' he finds a letter he had deleted always on the screen ? - no file path given.<p>
File>Properties>Statistics show page statistics but no 'Created, Modified etc.. at top - appears this letter is being displayed as a default ?<p>
A search/find for files/folders using keywords or title shows nothing ?<P>
Appreciate any thoughts - thanks<p>George

since upgrading my Desk Top and transferring my documents I now find that I am unable to read the word document. The document was created using Microsoft office 2001. Ihave downloaded the trial Microft Offine 2010 Home and Student, butd got no Joy andy help would be appreciated - Gerry

A:Unable to read word document

if i was you i wouldn't use trials. in trials you can't use much funtions (eg. older docs). i think that if you like simple (like word 2001) you can download open office for free here: OpenOffice.org - The Free and Open Productivity Suite. it can use doc formats. i am using it also. it works perfect.

edit: if you still want to use the office trial you should post something in the office part of this forum.

Something happened to one of my Word documents. When I try to open it, it says:

The document name or path is not valid. Try these suggestions:
* Check the file permissions for the document or drive.
* Use the File Open dialog box to locate the document
(C:\Documents and Settings\.....\temp.doc)

When I first couldn't access it, it was in "Documents" (not in C:\), so I dragged it into C:\documents & Settings\... but it didn't do any good.

How can I retrieve it? When I use the File Open dialog box, it just gives me the same message.
