I have a Dell Inspiron E1505 laptop. A couple of days ago I tried to open an excel file that I regularly use and when I opened it, all cells were blank except A1. In it was "FileError_22001. I start to investigate and every excel file is the same. Furthermore, all of my word & picture files have the same problem. All my excel files are 18 KB, all my word files are 20 KB. They are all time stamped with the exact same time.

I have McAfee that is provided by my employer but I discovered that it had not been updated in some time for some unknown reason. I called our IT folks yesterday morning and they tried to get me fixed but were unable to and had to pass the ticket up to the next level. They were unable to get the virus stuff working again either.

Whatever I got infected with turned off my McAfee firewall, then started corrupting all of my excel, word and picture files. It did not corrupt any files in my recycle bin. I tired to do a system restore to the day before the problems started but it didn't help. Turns out whatever got loaded probably happened the day before all the bad stuff started happening. So, I unrestored the restore that I did the first time and did a system restore to December 1st instead. It did not help and created more problems for me. I keep getting these pop ups, one after another.

I would attach screen shots of the errors but I can't figure out how to do it.

Hi all.

The other day whilst in the throws of fixing another unrelated problem I came across a strange and annoying Word Document problem.

When I bought this word document up it present a very unusual icon. It was grayed out and part of the title contained a ~$ then the name of the document.

When I tried to open it, the word document only opened up to the gray page just before it should turn white displaying the text, and there it froze.

Nothing worked after that! The freeze was so bad that the only way to close the window was to turn the computer off at the tower.

After rebooting I tried it again 2 more times with the same problem freeze occurring in the Word document.

Today I again found another document that caused the same problem, this time the icon for that document was normal but right beside this icon was another malformed grayed out ~$(name) icon.

When I tried to open either of the 2 icons I got the same freezing up problem, just as before.

I tried a previously suggested step in that I opened "Word" and from there navigated to where the bad files were located.

In turn I only hi-lighted each, and at the bottom of that window clicked on the arrow for the drop down box.

I was advised that one of the presented options was to repair the file. No such option was present.

So there you have it. Any advice on this problem please?

Regards

A:[SOLVED] Word document freezes computer and document is corrupted

Hi all.

Just to advise that I am going to mark this topic as Solved......to a fashion so to speak.
I may resurrect it at a later stage if the problem re-presents it's self.

In a nut shell. I spent a lot of time today searching sites and performing tests including searches on my computer program.

I ascertained that all the aforementioned "defective " Word documents originated in the same folder. After performing several search functions with the criteria as ~$.doc no other such files were found on my computer, other that the already mentioned.

All tests suggested would not repair the said documents.

I have now deleted the offenders and I will monitor the situation. If I run into problems again I will re-post.

Thanks anyway.

I tried to recover my files through a recovery program and I did. Unfortunately though some of my word and excel files were recovered as unknown and these files were corrupted. An example of what the text looks like is: ࡱ > . The word files that I know are only a couple of pages each have this weird text on thousands of pages each. Is there any way to get my files back as they were before? Is there another recovery program I could use to recover all of my files so that they are in their original working condition?

Last Thursday I reeived an email from a 'Luis [email protected]', which said it was a resume.  As we are accepting resumes right now for a lineman position, I didn't think twice about opening it.  HUGE mistake!  From there I got all sorts of Trojan worms and viruses.  Our local computer fix-it guy got rid of the viruses, took off my Symantec protection that did not protect me, and installed Microsoft Security Essentials and Malware Bytes.  He could not, however, get my word, excel, and Adobe to work.  I also had another computer guru do a remote session, and he was unsuccessful.  He used FileHippo and installed Open Office to test files...all to no avail.  Our internet provider said there is no fix.  These files are all corrupted, and my backup is from last year.  Dumb, I know...I will now be backing up weekly.  Can anyone help me recover these files, or is it a lost cause?  I greatly appreciate any advice you can give, so I can finally heal my computer AND my weary mind, or heat up my scanner.

I was able to bring the raw file back but they came back as word documents, (.doc) and not .wps extension that he was used to. Now it comes up when opening in word and in works, all jargon, stating this program could not be run in DOS mode, and wants me to select which encoding. My question is, are the files in any way repairable; being as they were corrupted during his attempt in burning them to disc and just simply disapeared.

I'm using Windows Xp on a network with Microsoft Word 2002.

I have one document of about 48 pages. Whenever I want to copy paste within this document or from this document to another document, Word freezes. It does not give an error message.

When I email it to someone else, they can open it and copy paste just fine. If they modify it, save it, and send it back to me, I still can't copy paste form it.

The IT guy reinstalled word, reformmatted my computer. no luck.

I went into the registry and deleted the Data files , as was recommended on another website, no luck.

I couldn't find my normal.dot file, so I didn't do anything with that.

EDIT***
Let me just clarify something - I can copy paste just fine from all other documents.

While copy paste seems to be the fastest and most reliable way to make Word freeze (it happens everytime), A few other things have also caused a crash. The only specific one I can remember at the moment is CTRL-Z

I would greatly appreciate any suggestions!

Thank you!

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

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

Hi guys,

So here's what I'm trying to do. Basically I need to create a word document report from data in an access database. The access database basically contains risk items for different entities. So, the report will contain all the risk items for one specific entity and a summary.

What I want to be able to do is enter all this information into the database and then automatically generate the report. The database is basically setup, including the queries I need. I just don't know how get the information over to word in the way need.

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

Risk 1: RISK 1's NAME

Risk 2: RISK 2's NAME
Severity: Medium

I know that this is not a standard "mail merge", but I thought it might be possible using VBA. I have used a (very) little VBA, but I am willing to learn more. I just need a push in the right direction as to where I might get the information I need.

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!

I recently had a really discouraging problem, where a ton of very special files I'd spent weeks working on, refused to open in either word perfect 8 (in which they'd been created) or ms word from office xp suite. I would either get a message in word perfect about an "unsupported format," or it would try to suggest i open them in ms word 97, and then fail. In word, the doc would open, but be in total gibberish. I tried opening them on different machines, different os's, everything.

I have since been able to recover the original docs from my laptop and I'm ok, but it was scary, to be honest. All that work...anyway, I am wondering what happened, and how to avoid it in the future.

I believe that what may have happened, is that I opened some of the files in both word perfect 8 and ms word, and that somehow this corrupted them. (I don't remember my reason for doing this, but I know I had one at the time.)Are there some guidelines/warnings/issues I should know about in terms of opening docs in multiple applications? Or on different machines (my school computer, home computer, laptop, etc.)?

Also...are there any special conditions that will cause corruption like this to occur, that I should know about?

What I have got is a word document and an excel document.

The excel document is used to enable a userform which a person can fill out.

The word document is used for the details of the user form in excel to be transferred to the word document.

I have created the forms and the word template and i am looking for a way the following can be done when the "SAVE" button is clicked on the user form in excel.

1) Have the details from the user form transferred into the word document at the top where the corresponding headers are.

2) The word document file name automatically created(using the issue title in the user form) and inserted into the excel sheet under issues for it to be reopen and viewed in Microsoft word.

I know it would be simpler to have all this in one form but the idea is to get someone to fill out the issue only then someone of higher authority can update the issue's progress but still allowing the issue creator( or any one else) the access to re-open it and see the updates in a read only format in word.

complicated i know but that's how its got to be.

attached are the word doc and the excel doc

(See attached file: Issues Log new.doc)(See attached file: new sample issues log.xls)

Thanks

I am using Excel 2003 to create a database of hyperlinks to different paragraphs and then through the use of a macro I can create word documents. I inherited this macro from a different department and want to customize it for my needs. That being said I have no idea how to edit a macro this large and complex. What's the best way for me to post the macro and my questions, through email, message through this site, post it in this window? The macro is about 15 pages in length. Thanks.
 

A:Excel 2003 - Macro for creating word document question

First, welcome to the forum!!!

The best way for one of the Excel gurus to work on your problem would be to post your file, after you have removed any confidential data (make a copy and do the editing in it). If it is too large, zip it first (and zip is preferred to rar).
If you are unable to post the file (there seems to be a problem at times with people who don't have very many posts being able to attach files) just send me an email via my profile (include the URL link to this thread). I will respond to you and then you can send it to me, after which I will post it for you.

Hi all,

I'm looking for a way in either Excel or Word 2010 to add text to a line before the text. So, for example I have something like this:

Name1
Name2
Name2
etc..

And then I want to add "1 " before each line in a way that is copy pastable, so it looks like so:

1 Name1
1 Name2
1 Name3
etc..

Is there anyway to do this. it's mostly just to help with copying text from Word/Excel documents onto forums so it formats correctly. Any help at all is much appreciated

Cheers,
Matt
 

A:Solved: Word/Excel 2010 Adding text before each line in a Document

Hi Matt,
It's probably a little cleaner to do it in Excel than in Word, but also a few extra steps. In Word:

You can run a find a replace. Without including the quotes, find "^p" (the paragraph symbol) and replace with "^p1 " (there's a space after the 1). This replaces the paragraph break at the end of each line with another paragraph break and then "1 " at the beginning of the next line. The problem with this method is that the first line won't have a 1 in front of it (because there's no paragraph break before that line) and the last line will have a stray 1 after it. But this should be relatively minor cleanup.

Alternatively, in Excel:

Insert a column to the left of your names. Without including the quotes, enter "1" in the first cell and copy it down your spreadsheet. Insert a column to the right of your names and enter this formula (assuming your names are now in column B):

=A1&" "&B1

This should give you the result you're looking for in column C. Hope that helps.

The only way I can get any MS office programs to open is to right click and choose the "open with" option. I check the box to Use as default, but they still won't open the next time.
I tried run > winword /r to reset word, but that didn't help either.
All the icons are the same, a little blue chemistry beaker.
In properties, the type of files say they are, "FFV files (docx), FFV files (xlsx), etc".
How do I get these files to open the normal double click way?

A:Excel and Word files will not open in Excel and Word

Have you tried repairing the Office installation (via Start > Windows Control Panel > Programs > Programs & Features > Microsoft Office (version) > Change > Repair)?

Aside from that if the file types are "FFV files (docx), FFV files (xlsx), etc", that suggests you've installed some other software that has taken over the file associations. In that case, you might consider uninstalling that software; otherwise you'll need to reset the file associations, by right-clicking each Office file-type (docx, xlsx, etc.) and using Open With>Choose default program to re-associate them with the correct Office application.

We spotted hundreds of IDX files in our WORD application and so, silly me, I deleted them.
When I opened WORD DOCS they were corrupted.
There is jibberish on each page and I pannicked cause the files contain College Applications.

Now, I restored the *.IDX files and I thought I had fixed the problem but now the jibberish is back.

WHAT DO I DO? My daughter is pannicking and I'm lost.

There are random charcters all over most of the docs.
There are http references where data from the net was used.

I'm concerned that I screwed up the whole application.

ANY SUGGESTIONS or thoughts????

HELP????

I am using Windows XP.....
 

A:Corrupted WORD and *.IDX files

Where - exactly- were the IDX files?

IDX is generically an Index file, not sure why they would exist but it depends just where you found them. "In our Word Application" suggests C/Program Files/Microsoft Office/ etc? was this the location?

If you mean they were in the data files area (my documents etc) then thats very different to being in the Word application itself.

Deleting any files from inside an application folder would really be dicing with danger...

Sounds like they could have been indexed links to external information, but if these were indeed such important documents, surely backups have been made?
Remember an even worse situation would occur if the hard drive suddenly failed (and they do, frequently) ... I can assure you from experience (4 in 4 years).

Please advise just where you deleted them from?
