I have 2 comps that have this prob, both running xp sp2, I can open files (word and excel 2000 and microsoft works 4.5) from the network no prob. I can also save the files to the network drive.
The prob happens when i try to save as to the network drive, I recive the error

I have no password on the file and the network drive is accesable.

I have unistalled and reinstalled the office (did not help).

All other programs have no problems with save as on the network.

Preferred Solution: unable to save as to network drive with word/excel 2000

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.)

I have windows xp with service pack 2, I have a mapped drive to a 98 machine. I can open, save and create new files no prob but when I try to save as a new file name to this drive I receive the error

This volume is not available or file is password protected.

This only happens with office (i.e. word, excel) and works.
I have no prob with any other programs...

any ideas

A:Unable to save as word 2000 to 98 machine

If the place where you are trying to save your file is unavailable, save the file to a different location.

If you have tried to use an unusual character in the file name, remove it from the file name.

For example, the error message

The folder "(path)" isn't accessible. It may be on an unavailable volume, or protected with a password."

...is either caused by a genuinely unavailable destination, or it can be caused by having the "<" or ">" symbol in the file name.

Or.... Click Save As and save the file as an .rtf file insted.

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?

We have a shared file on the network that several people access at work. We are having a major problem that is causing some concern. No one is able to save the file after they make changes. The message is "Your changes could not be saved to 'name of file' but were saved to a temporary document named 'name of temp file'. Close the existing document, then open the temporary document and save it under a new name."

We have checked the rights and permissions and everyone that is working on it, has the proper permissions.

You guys have bailed me out before and I am hoping you can do so this time. I recently changed jobs and am registered as a new user - glad to be back. Thanks all!

Each user has their personal folder on the network P:\. Users can save into any folder in this directory but cannot save directly to the root of their P:. If they go to a Windows XP PC they can save to the root of the P:\ but cannot do it on a Windows 7 PC. They get the error message "You can't save here. Please choose another locations."

For security reasons this is true on both Vista and Windows 7. You can save to my documents and other file locations in C but the root is protected and for good reasons. Although you can probably take ownership and make it work it's not advised. Take Ownership Shortcut

Hi folks....hope someone has a hint on where this is going wrong.

I have a classroom lab that I support and have recently had an usual circumstance. This particular class has been using Excel and only got into trouble when trying to use the Map Object to insert a map, then trying to save the spreadsheet to a network drive. Immediate BSODs result across the board.

Standard text, data, and whatnot will save to the network. Currently we have them saving to the local disk and then moving the file after the fact, but that obviously doesn't really provide a solution. Microsoft Knowledge Base to date has been of no assistance. Any ideas?

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

Hi There

This is not a macro question. I have been at this for hours now with no success. I have a picture in MS word 2000. The picture is text with a box around the text. See attached MS Word 2000 file. I want to copy this picture into Excel 2000. But when I do a copy and paste, it does paste into Excel but just the box shows up and not the writing. Can someone out there copy it and paste it for me in Excel 2000 and send it to me?? I can then copy it from your Excel spread sheet into my Excel spread sheet.

There is an aspect of the "Save As" command that is different for me as I use Excel 2000. I hoped there might be a setting for me to change to have the Save As command work as it did for me in the previous version of Excel.

Previously, when I used Save As to replace a file with the same name, I was prompted with a message box that gave me the drive reference (hard drive, shared drive, personal drive...) as it presented the file name. (Example: The file H:Financials.xls already exists. Do you want to replace existing file?) With Excel 2000, only the file name is presented, not the drive. In the workplace, many folders share the same name, and the drive reference was an aid.

Thank you for any assistance.

I received an Excel file that was saved as Excel 2000 in my email from a friend of mine. The file is 495 KB. I can open the file but I get a message that reads "Save not complete. File rename failed. Retry??" the message has two buttons - "Retry" and "Cancel". When I press "Retry" I get the same message. If I click on "Cancel", I get no mesage. I then save the file but I get another message that says "Document not saved". I have tried changing the file name but nothing works. By the way, the file has macros. Any ideas on how to save the file??

I can't send it to you due to the snsitivity of the data and the high KB.


A:Cannot save an Excel 2000 file

Hi Mario,
You mention the file is saved as Excel 2000, what is your version of Excel?
Have you tried the many Save As options?
If you just need the data you coud save it as a non-macro embeded workbook (2007 and newer) with extension xlsx.
Have you saved the attachment before opening it?
Is the location a network drive of local drive?
If you can open it you could copy every sheet to a new workbook and then try and save this new workbook
Is the VBA project password protected or can you open it, then you can also export all the vab modules to import them once you suceed with a macro-less workbook.
Many options, many questions, but I hope one of these helps you

I have a friend who is suddenly experiencing an issue where they are no longer able to Open an Excel file through their Windows Explorer (e.g. when trying to open a Excel file from within their My Documents folder). After double clicking on the file, Excel opens and acts as if it is opening the file but then proceeds to show just a blank worksheet. The file does not appear to be corrupt since they can then go to File/Open from within Excel, locate the folder and then Open it without a problem.

Any suggestions? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated as to the cause and resolution for this.

Thank you greatly,

My daughter has been working on a major final year high school project for several weeks using Word 2000 XP. She has consistently saved the file to floppy disk so as to swap between home and school PC but neglected to save to the HDD. Upon completing the project she attempted to load the final saved file from the floppy. To her great distress the file loaded in an apparently corrupted form with lines of text interspersed with numerous blocks of blank squares. The file seemed about double the original size, text was in an italic font and seemed to be randomly scattered and/or missing sections. She is naturally distraught at the possibility of having lost most of the data she spent weeks compiling and the deadline for submission looming. Can the file be reconstituted or recovered in the correct format. Why would this happen?. Any help/advice would be greatfully received. As a not so computer savy mum I am helpless to assist her.

Try one or more of the following:
* Check the path to make sure it was typed correctly.
* Select a file from the list of files and folders.

Hello, I am a consultant in central Texas and I have a customer that does not recall the chronology of how he got into this situation but basically, I'll attempt to explain. He has Word 2000 installed on an XP Pro machine. He wants to do a mailing that 2000 is unable to handle. We found that 97 will do the desired process with no problem. I tried to install Word 97 to his computer but the setup program indicates that 97 is already on the machine. There is no trace of Word 97 that I can find. The customer thinks that he has vacillated between 97 and 2000 at least twice. I just want both on this machine at the same time. I could uninstall both and then reinstall 2000 then 97 and I think it will work but I was hoping to avoid the uninstalls. Any ideas?

A:Unable to install Word 97 on Word 2000 machine

It sounds like Uncle Bill left some fragments in the registry (or, hopefully, just a file used to flag Word'97's presence).

Hopefully you are using "My Documents" to save everything created in MSWord (either version); that will make it pretty easy to back up the files you don't want to take chances on. Burn a couple CDs or DVDs as needed/if available.

Check the Add/Delete Programs- to see which version/s are installed. I would uninstall each one- re-starting the computer between uninstalls.

With operating systems it makes a difference in which order they are installed; I would follow the same rule for the same reasons--- install the older one first (Word 97). Paranoia makes me want to shut down & reboot between versions. Then install Word 2000.

Good luck.

I am using Win 8 and I can't remember now if this has started since going to Win 8 or if it worked OK for a while and is glitching now. (I am using 2010 and Outlook on Win 8)
If I prepare a Word or Excel document and want to send it on to someone I can no longer go to the File/Save and Send/Send as Attachment feature because if I do that then my machine says cannot send this message.
I then delete the attachment, click on Attach file, find the file, attach it in this way and boom...of it flies - kind of irritating.
Rather strange - anyone care to comment?
And I would really love it if, when this feature does work, such as when you send a picture straight out of My Pictures, it freezes you on that email so if you suddenly remember another file you want to add, or you decide you need to check something somewhere else before you hit go, the screen flashes at you (gives you the finger). So now you have to close/delete that message and start again (fortunately if you have added text you can highlight it before deleting, copy it and then, after closing the message you can paste the copy into word temporarily until you get a new message ready then copy/paste it back into your email.
I have not tried to send straight out of my pictures for a while - must check if that still works....it does!

I had this problem a couple of months ago and it seemed to go away and now is back. I am writing a users manual and its getting big (4.5mb). Before when the file got to about 1mb, whenever I tried to save it (using either save or save as) word would abort and i'ld loose everything. I got around it by keeping my sections to under 1mb.

I am now ready to turn the document over to operations for their use and couple of weeks ago merged all 8 sections into a single document to see if I could. I did and its just over 4.5mb. There is 290 pages, over 200 screen snapshots pasted in as pictures and its 372,241 characters long. I was editing the document with no problems. Then all of a sudden word started aborting again.

When I try to save, the progress bar moves almost all the way to the end, the light on the USB drive flickers and then word aborts. The error message I see is for

We used FrontPage 2000 to create our intranet. In the intranet we have some links to Word 97 documents. The one's that we notice we're having a problem with are the performance review documents. If I go into one of them through the links on the intranet everything works fine. The problem occurs when I want to save a soft copy to my hard drive. It runs through the save options fine but when I go to open it from the page that it creates on my hard drive the document doesn't come up. I get an error that the page could not be displayed. If I go into the folder that was created when I saved it I can open the Word 97 document but it ends up blank. This document is password protected so maybe that's the problem, but I was hoping that a Save As would save the information for offline storage. Does this make sense? I tried saving it in every possible way (that IE5.5 would allow me to save it in) and every one of them gives me a blank copy of the form. All of the information typed into it while on the intranet is gone. Some help, ideas, etc. would be great. As I said, I'm thinking that if the documents weren't read only we wouldn't be having this problem. Let me know if that's accurate. Thanks.

A:Word 97 & Front Page 2000 Save Properties

Just maybe this is what's happening:

Word forms, when copy and pasted, lose their protection. Once you lose protection, data is usually lost as well. Have you tried right-clicking on the hyperlink and hit "save target as" instead of opening the document/page?

If that doesn't help, you'll need to let me know what format you're getting out of it the other ways--I assume html.

Just recently (last 2 months), I have not been able to save any email word or excel attachments. I can open the document. I can even edit it. But if I try to "save as", the info page shows it trying to be saved in a temporary file on my C drive. It doesn't matter what I do: let the icon spin, try to load, try to save, try a different path. Word (or excel) simply stops responding, then the error message pops up and I have to close the program.

If I open the file again, the prompt to save the file appears, but the same process occurs. I was fortunate (and have no idea how it happened, think I just "saved" it) that a 75 page document that I needed to edit somehow got "autosaved" in my document library, and so I am able to work on that one. The original is still sitting in my email in box because I can't save it :-(

This follows a change to the look/layout of my "info" page that happened roughly the same time. It used to be that I could simply save any document by going to "file", "save as" and it would take me to my library files. Now I have a two boxes at the top with a tile list of my document file folders. I have to either browse my C drive for the file, or click on the appropriate file folder.

What change has happened that my word program no longer saves as I always have?

You have not mentioned what version of Office you are using, but you could try repairing Office as a start. To do that:

Open Control panel,
select Programs & Features,
scroll down to Microsoft Office,
Right Click on it & select Change,
This should open a couple of Repair options to try.

Also make sure office is up to date.

I don't know what on earth happens to my computer. First, this afternoon my computer suddenly slows down A LOT...like for example when I try to open the Windows Media Player it can't open and a message says it's due to low memory...when I was not using any other programs...and then everything else is slow...I can print articles though. Later I restart the computer but it stays the same. Then after some time strangely it gets back to normal by itself and I thought everything's over.
But then tonight when I turn on the computer the problem comes back again. Can't open some high-memory programs...even the Kerio firewall program disappears by itself! In addition, I find that all of a sudden I can't use the cut/copy/paste function on virtually any program that has that function...Word, Notepad, Windows. I was particularly frustrated as I was doing some assignment that becomes quite inconvenient without those functions. And the Edit/Save function on the Internet window was also blocked. ("Luckily" the Save function in Word was not blocked.) Could someone suggest what has happened? Thanks a lot.

my system: vista 64 Ultimate, Office 2007, all updates, no viruses, 8 GB RAM, 750 GB HDD, C2D
Problem: I used to have office 2003. At some time word could not save anymore. so I switched to office 2007 thinking it is related to vista. when I start word 2007 I get the error message "could not create work file. check the environment variable". At first it wouldn't save either, but I fixed that by deleting the normal.dot It seems to work besides the annoying message. The other problem may be related: Excel can not save at all and crashes while trying and says: "MS Excel cannot open or save any documents because there is not enough available memory or disk space... to make memorey free...". all other Office applications seem to work well (haven't tried too much).
I googled and tried all the registry tricks (that's how I found the fix with deleting the normal.dot). I suspect at some time I changed something and can't remember what. but word 2003 worked at some time. I have reinstalled Office multiple times (deleted registry entries etc.) Nada. My links to the temp folders in environment variables should be correct. I had meddled with those at some point.
I searched the forum, haven't found anything. Sorry in case I overlooked something here.

A:Unable to save Word documents

Is there anyone out there that knows if MS Word and/or Excel is capable of converting a numeric such as "1000" to it's alpha equivalent of "one thousand?" (similar to the way a check is written, although the application will be for contracts as opposed to checks). Thanks!

A:MS Word/Excel 2000

Looks like this is the go for currency:http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?...B;EN-US;Q213360and this one for plain numbers:http://www.meadinkent.co.uk/xlnumberstext.htmI didn't know you could do that!

Hi guys,

I have a question that has stumped me so far. Here is the scenario: I am dealing with a spreadsheet that has several tabs on it. In each tab, there are several word, powerpoint, and pdf documents that are embedded as objects. My task is to write a macro, that will for each document (keep in mind its an embedded object that needs to be opened), open it with the appropriate program, and save it using a pre-assigned name (the name of the column heading and the row it is in) to a predetermined folder path. This process needs to be duplicated about 200 times. I'm not sure if this is even possible, but I know enough about vba to believe that it is. I've been working on it since yesterday, and I can't seem to tie the pieces together. Can anyone help on this?

I'm trying to figure out how to make it so that a very long checklist, which includes checkboxes and text boxes, can be transferred to excel. (I'm working with the Microsoft Office 2007 suite.) I've been reading about how you're supposed to enable the "Save Data as Delimited Text File" in the advanced part section of the 'Tools' Options tab, and then save it as a text file to import into excel, but when I do that it doesn't save any information, just two zeros. I've been looking at other forum questions and messing around with how the forms are protected or not, but I can't get it to actually save any of what's entered in to the forms when I save it as a text file. Any help on this would be very much appreciated.
I've attached a zip folder (I hope) with a section of the checklist in case that might help. Thanks so much!

We get this message when trying to Save As a new file from an existing file:

"The folder foldername isn't accessible. The folder may be located in an unavailable location, protected with a password, or the file name contains a / or \."

I have been to Miscrosoft site and followed their hotfix instructions, still happens, but intermittently. Has anyone had this before?

Hi all,

I am experiencing some problems when trying to save an updated excel 2007 worksheet.
This worksheet as well as all other is saved in compatibility mode.

This occurs only with this particular sheet all other are working fine.

It started yesterday after updating the worksheet with new info.
I got the message "Microsoft Excel has encountered a problem and needs to be closed".
"Send error report"etc... I lost 2 hours of work.

I have downloaded the same very sheet from my company's Intranet (uploaded by myself a few days ago), and the error remained.

The weird thing is that this worksheet was working just fine until yesterday and all other excel docs are working just fine.
I have tried in safe mode doesn't work either.

Any help with this issue would be greatly appreciated.

Running Windows XP with service pk 2, 512 megs of ram and 80 gigabyte hard drive, 2.4 celeron processor

A:Excel/Word 2000 issue

Read other 6 answers

I'm currently running Office2000 with XP PRo.

My issue is this. Word or Excel seems to ignor folders and jumps directly to the first file in a directory when performing a "Save As" or "Open" command. As a result, the scroll bar is not at the top of the directory.

It wasn't always like this. I have another computer configered exactly the same way that is not experiencing this. I believe it's a "Windows" issue and not an "Office2000" issue. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Office and the problem persists.

Can anyone help??????

I'm a former IT Systems Technician, and my girlfriend is a work-from-home writer. I've recently migrated her PC's original processor and ram from an HP motherboard to an ASRock board, linking the original WD Caviar Blue 1TB drive to the board as a secondary drive to collect documents and storage from, while running Windows 8.1 (up to date) on a Seagate Barracuda 250GB for the main OS and programs drive.

With those specs out there in the open, now it's time to get to the root of the problem.

As a work-from-home writer, my girlfriend depends on the ability to save her documents to Microsoft's OneDrive and upload them to her publisher, but with this error showing up, she cannot get them to save. I have never seen such a message in my many years of IT service, and I'm completely baffled.

I am the administrator... So now I turn to you guys for help.

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!

A:Unable to save a specific word 2007 document.

Its been a week now since i have this problem that im unable to save MSoffice files on my laptop's C drive. I keep on getting the message "Your changes cannot be saved to "fxx.xxx" because of sharing violation."
This started when i removed my membership from administrators group to power user and change the owner from me to administrators group, i did if for standard security setup in our office for all computers (im part of administrator team, so i know the admin password anyway). Since then im not able to save any MSoffice file on c.
So far this is the only program that i know of that wont allow me to save files on c although i tried running a standalone program from D (no installtion required) and create a profile/or user for that parcticular program, then close the program and open it again but the profile is not being created. I tried doing it using admin login and it is able to create i can also save MSoffice file on c. Funny thing is, on the other machine the same standard security set up is working for a power user. i tried reinstalling the msoffice XP program but to no avail. I tried adding my name again on the administrators group stil not able to save.

I have created a document whereby I have copied a chart from Excel and pasted it into word with a link so that the information is updated..... however, whenever I refresh the links, the chart resizes and no longer fits on the document.

Does anyone know if there is a way to fix or lock the size of the pasted chart in the word document.

A:Inserting charts from Excel into Word 2000

Have you updated Word with all the service releases? I think there were various problems related to resizing charts that were fixed in one of the releases.

Did you size/position the chart in Word using the dialogue box or just with the cursor?
