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.)

For earlier versions of Office products, MSFT published a number of KB articles that describe the issue of having more than 1 version of Office in OS, andthey did list some significant potential problems.

Some of the articles were KB 292491, 218081, 828956 and 290576.

In any case, you would really have to uninstall 2007 before installing 2003.

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!

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.

Regards,
Jeff

Hi, could anyone help. I have a customer that has Office 2007 and when they open any file from the server they can work on it. If another person opens it they get the read-only message. However if they leave it 20minutes they can open the file and use it even if the orginal user has it still opened, but when they go to save it says read-only and they lose their changes.

It happens on all office documents.

If anyone has an idea why this could be happening i would be grateful.

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.

Hey guys, my wife is taking a course that requires her to install Office 2010. The issue is that she wants to preserve her current setup which includes Office 2003 and 2007 existing side-by-side on her Windows 7 (64-bit Home Edition) notebook.
The 2003/2007 setup is not one that she really wants to mess with (i.e., she has no interest whatsoever in uninstalling the two Office suites that she currently has), so ideally she would like to have Office 2010 installed temporarily (for the duration of her course) on the machine without interfering with the current setup.
What is the most painless way of doing this that does not involve shelling out for a second computer?

Hello

I installed office 2007 ultimate alongside office 2003 professional. Microsoft outlook and publisher was removed from my office 2003 prior to office 2007 installation. I also opted not to install microsoft outlook 2007.

It seems that each time I load word 2007 or 2003 after previously opening the other version (ie. load 2003 followed by 2007 OR load 2007 followed by 2003), a window would opened up indicating that either the configuration or installation process is taking place, hence delaying the startup. However, once the program has started, it would run without problem. I do not intend to unistall my 2003. There was no problem loading excel 2003/2007, powerpoint 2003/2007 and access 2003/2007.

I am running on Windows XP SP2 that is regularly updated. Thank you

I'm on Windows XP w/SP2. It had Office 2003. I've had my computer since 2004.
Before I installed Office 2007, Office '03 worked fine. Then I needed '07 for a college class and installed a trial. Office '07 worked fine, but the MS Word shortcut in my quicklaunch bar pointed to Word '03 still. Whenever I'd hit it by accident, it would try to install Office '03("Please wait while Windows Configures Microsoft Office Professional Edition 2003). I canceled it on the second screen and it worked anyway.

The second screen had this:

Originally, I had Office 2003 installed in my computer, & a trial version of 2007 that had already expired.
Today I installed a full version of Microsoft Office 2007, without removing any of the other two versions from my computer. I realized that it seemed to automatically remove the older version. I`m not bother about it not being there, as I got the new version, but I wonder if this is an automatic uninstalling that Office does, or if the version is still there but I can`t see it, as I would like to remove it properly if it`s still somewhere in my computer.
I checked in Control Panel & the only thing I can see is "Microsoft Office Enterprise 2007", the full version I just installed, & everything that come with it. No 2003 anywhere.
Does this mean 2003 is fully uninstalled?
Thanks a lot!!

A:My office 2003 disappeared after installing office 2007

You can check to see if it is fully uninstalled (I am sure that it is) by going to search and typing the name there. If it is still present, the program will appear.

Worst case scenario, just remanants will remain. Download and use ccleaner. If you run this software, you can be certain that 2003 has gone to software heaven.

If given the option not to use the reg cleaner inculuded in ccleaner take it. I and many others at the forum feel that reg cleaners do more harm than good.

I recently purchased Microsoft Office 2007 and upgraded from my 2003 installation (Word, Excel, PowerPoint) today. I can't believe how frustrated I am, I am regretting the entire purchase and upgrade. The composition of the toolbars is lacking options/icons present in 2003, the word configuration options are all over the place, and I cannot for the life of me find out where some of the most basic options are, such as fields. I didn't know the Visual Basic toolbox is gone until I read a help file on some website online, stating that Microsoft now wants you to purchase VB.NET separately.

I have used Microsoft Office since version 6.22 with Windows 3.1, I can deal with tabs instead of menus, and the new theme...but it is a serious serious pain when I can't find the location of options which I have been using for the past ten years. There is an old addage... If it ain't broke, DON'T FIX IT!
I think Microsoft will be losing many many customers with this one.

I reinstalled Excel 2003 and it opens. I tried to save this as an .xlsx extension and then uninstalled Excel 2003. It wouldn't open. So something is occurring here. On other Excel 2003 created spreadsheets, they open without issue.

Then I have a program with an .exe extension. It needs to open using Excel 2007. With both Excel 2003 and Excel 2007, it will not open. It freezes and then I get an error message saying it cannot open with another Excel other than 2007. If I right clik on the .exe program, there is no "Open with". I even tried opening a blank Excel 2007 spreadsheet and then cliking on "Open". but it is a bunch of gibberish. My IT person says you can't open the program that way, You have to launch it as an .exe program using Excel 2007.

If I said I was confused that'd be an understatement I think. You cannot open executable files (*.exe) with Excel. Recognized file types are things like .xls, .xla, (for 2007) .xlsx, .xlsb, .xlsm, etc. I don't know what your exe file is and I'm not sure I wanna know, but it certainly doesn't open in Excel. What is it exactly? If you don't know I wouldn't open it. Or if someone told you to open it with Excel then it's probably a virus. Unless I'm missing something here.

With the file in question which won't open, assuming it's not this strange and unknown exe file you're talking about, sounds like the file may have been corrupted. Does it open on any other machine? And if you uninstall Excel 2003, did you re-install 2007? It seems strange. I would try cleaning out your application and reinstalling 2007 fresh. You can't install 2003, then 2007, then take off 2003 and put it back on, you're gonna get things screwed up. I bet your registry doesn't know which way to turn here. Some good info on it can be found here...

Also, I would highly recommend you completely uninstall all versions, and I'm talking a deep cleaning, then reinstall. For that deep cleaning, take a look at this article (which I'd highly recommend you do) and then reinstall...

Iím using Windows 7 and I used a macro which worked totally fine under Excel 2003. Now, under Excel 2007 it does not run anymore but displays the following error message:

"Run-time error '445':
Object doesn't support this action.

The function of the macro is to open up all other Excel spreadsheets located in the same folder and copy data out of them into the spreadsheet in which the macro is stored.

When I click on "Debug" the Visual Basic Editor highlights the row which says: Set FilSrch = Application.FileSearch

Can you help me with this? I've searched for a solution for a long time but could not find anything which worked.

The following is the start of the macro code:

Sub UpdateTable()
Dim X As Range, I As Integer, J As Integer, RecNo As Integer, CopyVal As Variant
Dim SourceBk As Worksheet, DestBk As Worksheet, StartRow As Integer, IndRange As Range
Dim ServRange As Range, SrcOpen As Boolean, SourceName As String
Dim FilSrch As Object, MyFilArray() As String

'MsgBox "This function not available in this version.", vbInformation, "Function Not Available"
'Exit Sub
'Sheets("LookUp").[a12] = Now
With Application
.ScreenUpdating = False
.StatusBar = "Counting source files ..."
End With
Set FilSrch = Application.FileSearch
With FilSrch
.NewSearch
.LookIn = ActiveWorkbook.Path
.FileType = msoFileTypeExcelWorkbooks
If .Execute > 0 Then
ReDim MyFilArray(.FoundFiles.Count)
For I = 1 ... Read more

A:Solved: Excel 2003 Macro Doesn't Run in Excel 2007 - Help Requested

I have just been upgraded to Excel 2007. I find that some of the macros that were recorded in Excel 2003 no longer work in Excel 2007. We use the Analysis Toolpak VBA add-in and I have added this in to 2007 ok, but when running a macro I get a run time 1004 error ATPVBAEN.XLA cannot be found. After some searching it would appear that some of these functions have been renamed in 2007 e.g. it is now a .XLAM file rather than .XLA which is why the macro code can't find it. I guess I could manually edit all the macros and change the fucntion names but there are other colleagues in my team that are still using 2003, so I don't want to break things for them. Is there any solution to this? Thanks

Firstly I am a beginner of beginners but I try to learn as much as I can.
I have put the following protection code into an Excel 2003 workbook and everything runs ok. I then opened the workbook in Excel 2007, and saved it as a .xlsm file. When I try to open the .xlsm file in Excel 2007, I get a vba Runtime error 13, "Type mismatch", and the code sticks at the first line below("If Worksheets...). I have tried everything that my limited knowledge allows, searched the web for 2 days, and still have no answers.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Private Sub Workbook_Open()

MsgBox "Sorry, this program is not registered for this computer, please e-mail .......... for more info."
Application.DisplayAlerts = False
Application.Quit
End If
End Sub

Hi,
My wife's Lenovo computer running 64 bit vista had office 2007 pro trial installed from the factory. We uninstalled it and installed office home/student 2010. When it checks for updates it continually wants to install Office 2007 Power Point update KB2464594.
Is there anything we can do to stop this behavior?

Thanks

Hi can anybody tell me hoe to copy macros from excel 2003 to excel 2007?
The excel 2003 is running under windows xp and the 2007 under windows vista.
(The two versions of excel are installed at differnt computers)

A:Copy Macros From Excel 2003 To Excel 2007

I don't know Excel 2007 nor Vista.
But the usual way to copy macros brute force would be to open the VBA toolbar, get into the Modules, select each, and Export one by one. Then import into 2007 modules if Excel 2007 VBA permits that.
If export/import doesn't work, you can always copy out the entire text into Notepad text files, and copy/paste from the Notepad into your 2007 Excel.
If the VBA language or object model has changed between 2000 or 2003 and 2007, then some tweaking might be in order, but I suspect they left it alone, and the error messages, if any, might suggest what to fix.

Since these are different computers, either network them and share some common directory, or use USB flash drive for transfers of the, say, Notepad files.

Export is good, because it names the modules. They get saved someplace in your local settings. Notepad will not name, and doesn't matter really.

Does anyone know how to run Excel 2003 print macro on Excel 2007 or higher? When I tried running my 2003 macro, the VBA editor pops up w dialogue box, " Run-time error '1004': Method 'ActivePrinter' of object'_Application' failed ".

This is my code: Application.ActivePrinter = "Epson LQ-300 ESC/P 2 on USB003"

Can anyone help?

Thanks!

Welcome to TSG hope we can help you and you can help others.

I'm not an Excel macro guy but you code looks reasonable. What happens if you run this. I suspect printer name is a little off.

MsgBox "The name of the active printer is " & Application.ActivePrinter

I'm not sure if it because the files are 2003 or not? When I try to open them an error message appears stating, "...the file you are trying to open is in a different format than specified by the file extension. Verify file is not corrupted and is from a trusted source..." These are my files. The interesting thing is that if I try to open the same file that I have saved within the last year (before I got 2007) then I can do it? That is, I have a cache folder of files that I go get to do calculations then save in a new job folder. The ones in the new job folder will open (also 2003), but the ones in the original cache will not? I would truly appreciate any suggestions. Thank you.

A:Can't open 2003 Excel Files in Excel 2007?

Have you attempted to set them up in 'Compatibility Mode." Not sure if this will help, just hoping it will. I have been testing the new Microsoft Office 2010 Beta 64 bit, and have yet to have this problem, and like you I have a great deal of files in 2003 (never used 2007)'

I think you can still download MS Office 2010 beta from Microsoft's download site. Good Luck.

I purchased Excel 2007 to take advantage of the larger number of rows and columns. My SS applications are very large and I run out of columns. But after trying my Excel 2003 in the new 2007 software, I find that 2007 runs 10-20 times slower, making it completely unusable. Googling the problem shows it's a widespread issue. MS help desk essentially no help. Any suggestions?
 

A:Excel 2007 Runs MUCH Slower than Excel 2003

The biggest thing that slows Excel 2007 is also what you wanted it for - the greater number of cells. If your formulas have cell references like A:A or $1:$1, then that is a lot more cell references for it to process.
Read this http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa730921.aspx and maybe you will get some ideas on how to make your files process faster.

I want to install Office 2007 on a machine that currently has Office 2003 installed.

I would like to have both versions installed concurrently on the same machine so that I can access either version independently.

Q1. Have any of the Forum members successfully had both versions installed concurrently on the same machine?

Q2. If "yes" to Q1, what precautions need to be followed at the time of installation?
