Word document disappeared: Word 2007

Q: Word document disappeared: Word 2007

Hello all,

On the 12th October I was editing a Word 2007 document on my Vista Home laptop. Throughout editing I pressed Ctrl S to save the doc over the previous version. I copied data in from several other files.
I went back yesterday to edit the document again and it has disappeared. The only version of the doc is a previous version dated 21st Sept.
I searched on all files modified after 11th Oct just in case I had saved it under another name. Not in there. The files I copied data from did come up in the search results though, soi knwo the search function is working.
I checked the default Autosave location - not in there.
I checked the recycle bin - the doc is not in there and neither are any ~ files or autosaved files. I haven't emptied my recycle bin for months.
I cannot find a word doc modified afetr the 11th October.

Can it really just have disappeared? It is my MBA dissertation paper and I worked on this edit for an awful lot of hours.

Many thanks.

Preferred Solution: Word document disappeared: Word 2007

I recommend downloading and running DRP. It's a recovery tool that has been proven to recover files that most other programs have no luck with. I've even recovered files from freshly formatted or partitioned drives.

You can download it direct from this link http://goo.gl/v51TwD. (This link will automatically start a download of DRP that you can save to your computer.)

When saving a Word 2007 document as a webpage (htm, html), an extra folder is automatically created besides the hmtl document itself. This folder contains background information like pictures, wallpaper etc. Is there a way to prevent that folder from being created in the first place? I've got Word 2000 on another computer, and when I save my word documents as html files over there, that extra folder is not generated. The only time that folder is created in 2000 is if my documents contain pictures, wallpaper etc. In Word 2007, it is created all the time, even though my documents are just plain text.

A:Solved: Word 2007, saving document as html document: how to get rid of extra folder?

Managed to find the solution, it was very simple after all. One has to save the document as a filtered webpage and click "yes" when a box pops up warning you that you will use certain featuers which are specific to Office2007, such as the background. Then the document will save without that extra folder and files.

I have two questions regarding documents created in Word 2007...

1) Can links be created within a Word document? For example, can I click on and item my table of contents and have the document jump to that particular section of the document?

2) Also, is there a way to make sections of the document hidden until the user clicks a specific word or graphic in the document?

I'd like to specify a particular instruction and include a "Show example" link that would make a detailed example appear for those who needed the extra help.

Thanks everyone!

A:Word 2007 - Links within a document? Hide/Show sections of a document?

If you created table of contents through References - Table of Contents, you can hold Ctrl and click on the item in that table, word will take you there. This feature is standard.

Also, to navigate inside document you can use bookmark option.
Insert bookmarks. Word 2010 Bookmarks
Then insert Hyperlink - in the window select second tab "Place in This Document" and choose your bookmark.

As for hiding parts of document, I do not think that is possible.
You can create that in HTML document with javascript, but not in Word document.

I was working on a Word document last Thursday, which was saved inside a sub-folder. When I returned to my PC today, the sub-folder was gone, as was the Word document.

Nothing turns up when I search for the file, and it's not in the Recycling Bin.

It still appears in the Recent Word Documents list, with the correct file path, but when I click on it, it says "The directory name is not valid."

Is there any hope of recovering this file? Why did it disappear?

I've never had this happen in 20 years of computing.

I believe that the document properties in Word 2007 (especially author) is being picked up from the login name in windows XP. I know how to change the document properties on a single document, however, I would like to know how to change the document properties for WORD -- period. In other words, I don't want my login name to be the author, I want my REAL name to be the author. Also, my company name is NOT in my login info, so there is no company coming up, I would like to change these properties so that everytime I start a document it's already there. So far everytime I change the properties, then close the document and start a new one, it goes back to the original. (I assume this problem is being perpetrated throughout the Office Suite...)

Is this an option?

Thanks for any information about this you can provide,

I'm working on a Windows Server 2003 Terminal Server. We have 9 users in our office connect to this server to do everything they need to do. All users are having the same problem. There were some documents that got saved to the auto-recovery (this was several months ago). Since that time, every time we open a word doc, it shows the auto-recovery list on the left. when we close Word it asks:
"The document recovery task pane contains some recoverd files that have not been opened. Would you like to view these files the next time you start Word?"
Yes, I want to view these files OR
No, remove the files, I have saved the files I need.

We click NO to remove the files, hit OK and it tells us it "can't delete the file, can't read from the source file or disk.". then we have to click OK 6 times for each file that is in the auto-recovery pane on the left.

Any idea how to make this go away??

I just started using office 2007 and I am having a problem with a document created in word 2000. I have a document that has form fields that when I use it I tab through the various form fields filling out the information and when done with that I un-protect the document (previously I had put a "protect form" button in the tool bar). In word 2007 it seems to be a more drawn out process. Is there any way to just add a protect form button again and make this a one step process? Thanks in advance!

Please help! I have mozilla firefox which uses .pdf for saving any word files. I created a document and I had no option to save it as anything but a pdf file. I need to convert this to a word document asap for work. Somehow when I opened the pdf file in a word format all that comes up is letter, symbols and numbers. My document is not gone but can't be opened in a word format so I can then save it to word. I know I sound illiterate and using the wrong terminology but I'm hoping I gave enough info. Also, when I open the pdf file, my PC only wants to print it. There's no command to close it. When I do try to export the pdf, I get a page that wants me to subscribe to Adobe ID. I already have that but it won't accept my password and keeps emailing me security codes. By the time I get back to enter the code, Adobe ID says that code is invalid and gives me a new one. I'm so perplexed. Why oh why can't there be an easy fix to anything!!!
Thanks in advance.

I'm new to this and word 2007, so please be patient with me.

i need a bit of help. I've got approx 200 word documents (template.rtf documents) that are unique to our system and i have to back them up (in case they are changed/amended or deleted by users, and also so that we can look at these and decide where we can condense them i.e. similar letters into one document etc).
Anyhow I have managed to copy these over into a folder but the problem I have is that the name of the document is not on the actual document so when these are printed out an passed over to a third party to look at and change it looks like i am going to have to write the name of the document onto each one.

Is there a way of automatically inserting the name of document into the actual document (the footer maybe) without having to open them up?

Using Word 2007, is there any way to divide my long, unruly list of macros into four separate lists, each of which could be used with one of the four types of documents?

I've tried searching for help and I'm either using the wrong terms, or this is nowhere nearly as straightforward as it seems like it should be.

By default it is saving docs as .docx. I hope this is enough info. As we are typical in size of a small business, it needs to be sorted asap. Thanks for any suggestions.

Hi there

My appoligies if there is already a thread on this topic, but I have tried to go through everything and have not picked anything up. My problem:

I have designed a letterhead layout for one of my clients in Microsoft Word 2007(there is an image inserted into the top of the document, then I have inserted text boxes containing contact details etc), now when the client opens the letterhead, she only sees the the image, the text boxes are gone???

Now she has just sent me an email explaining her problem, but when I open the attachment I see the text boxes with their content and everything else. Are we going crazy here? The ONLY thing I can think of, that would cause this problem, is that I am using Office 2007 and she is using and older version, but what boggles my mind here, is that I have saved the document as "Word 97-2003 document" and my client still can't see the text boxes (only the image header). Am I doing something wrong here? Is there something need to install?

I am using Windows XP, Professional, version 2002 (Service Pack 3) with Microsoft Office 2007, my client says she is also using XP 2002, but with Microsoft Office 2003.

Anyone's assistance here would be greatly appreciated.

Kindest Regards

I need help with word 2007. When I open my document (.doc format), word automatically reformats it during loading. After this, I see a lots of garbage in the contents list. This garbage are in fact lines from my document. In the document they look just like other text, but they appear in the list. When I update the style of these lines (for example it uses normal and I just click on normal style), they disappears from the list. I save the document but next time word reformats it again and I have the exactly the same garbage in the contents list.

I have MS Word 2007 and the one thing I hate about it is it's default document settings. These are the settings that are applied when I open a new document in MS Word. Exactly what I dislike is the line spacing. It is always set to 1.15 and there is also a new setting I've never seen in a MS word application. It is simply stated as After and is measured by a pt value. This setting is always at 12 and I want it to be 0.If anybody knows how to keep these settings permanent please give me a heads up.

From time to time, when I open a Word document, it is opened read only. I have no idea why this happens. It is fairly infrequent (3-4 times a month) and seems random.
The problem is that I don't notice that it's read only, so I go about merrily on editing the document. When I try to save it, I get the Save As dialog. In  then have to save it under a different name, delete the old copy, and rename the new one. In addition to a royal pain, it screws up my archive log.
Is there a way that I can have Word warn me whenever a document is opened read only?

A:Can I get Word 2007 to warn me when a document is opened read only?

I did a little more research and found this website:

It has a document_open macro which I adapted as follows:

Sub Document_Open()
If ThisDocument.ReadOnly = False Then Exit Sub
MsgBox "This document is read only."
End Sub

I saved it in a Normal code module and set a breakpoint. It does get executed every time a document is opened, but the readonly test is always False, even when the document has the Read Only flag set and the title bar clearly says "(Read Only)".
Is there a way to modify this macro so that the MsgBox statement will execute when a document is opened read only?

So I am officially desperate! I worked on a project in Microsoft Word 2007. I then went to go open it the next day and all of the text was completely gone!! I am only a beginner when it comes to computers so I have absolutely no idea what happened.
To better understand the problem here were the chain of events:
I worked on 2 documents, saved them in a folder, and then closed MSWord
I then worked on them the next day not realizing that for some reason they were opened as "Read Only"
Seeing that, I copied the the text and saved them in new documents
I went to Documents and attempted to move the new documents into the folder with the originals but an error message reading something like "this action cannot be completed because the file is open in another program" when the file was NOT open
In my frustration I attempted to move it over and over again to no avail
I gave up and closed the Documents folder and turned off my computer
The very next day I went to open the project and both the original documents and the copied ones were COMPLETELY EMPTY!!!
the files were still there but the all of text was completely gone!
Through Microsoft forums I've repeatedly tried the "Recover Text from any File" and "Open and Repair" methods
They've remained completely empty
I don't think I can redo the project correctly in the time it is due! Please any info will help. Thanks

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!

Does anyone know if it is possible to get Word 2007 to select a different default dictionary based on the current document?

I know I can change the default by going into options, but it is difficult to remember each time I open a document.

I'm going to tell the whole story incase the answer is somewhere lost in one of the steps I took. I'm writing a paper for school and it needs to be on Word 2007. I have two accesses to this type of Microsoft Word. At my boyfriend's house and at school. I started it at my boyfriends house and didn't have my flash drive, so I e-mailed it as an attatchment to my yahoo e-mail. When I was at school, I opened it and worked on it again. I saved it. Later still at school, I opened it, worked on it again and saved it. As I was saving it I realized that the one I had originally opened from my boyfriend's house was the file extention .docx and the file extention my school uses, even though they both are Microsoft Word 2007, was .doc. So I saved it twice just incase one file wouldn't open. When I got to my boyfriends house, I opened the .doc file. It came up and I finished my paper. Throughout working on it, I randomly and continually clicked the "save" button. Not the "save as". When I was finally finished, I went to upload it onto the internet to turn it in like I always do, and I couldn't find it. I of course closed the program before I realized I couldn't find it, so I couldn't try to resave it as something else. I know I saved it more than once. I looked everywhere I can possibly think of!!

After tracking changes to a document in MS Word 2007, i am unable to print the *original* document. Even when i make sure that i have 'original' showing, even when i turn track changes off, even when i select 'document' in the print dialog box (rather than 'document showing mark-up'), even when i check in print preview and see the original showing as the document to be printed - what actually gets printed is the document with changes (no comments and no red highlighted additions and deletions, but still with the changes in the document and NOT the original.) Really tried everything i can think of. Had this problem multiple times with multiple documents. Any advice very much appreciated!

A:Solved: MS Word 2007 - tracked changes, but cannot print original document

Tricky - I've not had that particular problem before, but Word can certainly get its knickers in a knot over certain things, and Track Changes is one of them.

It sounds as though the file might be corrupted somewhere. If so, a workaround I've often used is:
1. Create a new blank Word doc.
2. Go copy everything out of the crap Word file but take great care to LEAVE BEHIND the very last paragraph marker. (You will need to make para marks visible to make sure).
3. Switch files, & paste everything into the new Word doc.

Don't know whether this will help, but it would be worth trying. It definitely works for many problems.

Hello all!
The macro has to do the following:Find the next word in the document that ends with "##"
Highlight that word and the following bullet in red.
Find the next word in the document that ends with "##"
Highlight that word and the following bullet in blue.
Repeat until end of document alternating between those two colors.
​Here is an example of how the end result should look like:

Another day.
Hello all. Blah blah blah blah.

Goodbye all.
Yes sir.
No sir.
Open book.
Close book.

Thanks for any help you can give me,


A:Macro that highlights specific parts of a document in MS Word 2007

Have you tried recording a macro?
Start macro recorder and then do what you want.

After you finished one then stop recording, open the macro to edit and see how it works.

Most of us 'geniuses' started that way and it gives insight to what really happens.

Does anyone know anything about WinCVS? My office has been using WinCVS for document versioning (because it's free and it works) and up until we switched to Office 2007, everything was fine. Now, we need to begin saving our documents (mostly Word) in the new format (with the .docx ext.), but I can't find a way to connect the new .docx version to the old .doc version(s). For example, a document called "document1.doc" has been altered and the new version is "document1.docx." Because the document is saved in the new Word 2007 format, with a new file extension, it will not save as the latest version of the old document, only as a new document. Is there a way to "connect" the old and new formats in WinCVS?

A:WinCVS for document versioning-switching from Word 2003 to 2007

If you want to save a document to be compatible to open in word 97-2003 you cannot simply automatically save the document because it will save as a .docx. Therefore you cannot click on the disk icon at the top to save your document.

Go to the at the top left corner.
Choose Save As. Another menu will appear.
Choose Word 97-2003 Document from the list.
Choose where to save your file.
After the file has been saved as a .doc you can now just press save instead of save as. You can also press on the save symbol (a floppy disk) to automatically save the file now.

I have Windows 2007 & Vista Business. Suddenly I have a saved text document that I can't do anything with. Can't print it, copy it or e-mail it or send it anywhere. All I can see when I right click are two "boxes" containing formatting options such as Paste, Font, Bullets etc.Hope you can help.

A:Have a document in Word 2007. Can't send, print or copy or e-mail it.

You can open it though right? Where did the text document originate from ? Where do you see those two boxes you mention when you right click (ie. in Word, etc)? Can you at least read the contents of the doc?

I'm also assuming that other documents work?

howdy, I wonder if you could help? I have been tasked with finding a solution to a particulary annoying issue within Office 2007 Professional. The very first time you try and open up a Word Attachment within Outlook we receive an error message as follows :- "The System cannot find the file specified". If you leave Microsoft Word open and then double click the file again, the document opens.

I have tried all solutions\suggestions on how to fix this and none of these have helped. Has anyone else come across this issue and managed to resolve it?

My system:
MS Windows XP Home fully updated
MS Office 2007 fully updated

The issue:
I have been sent a very large Word file. Unfortunately, every line of text in the file is terminated with a "print" (^P) character, and every paragraph ends with two such characters. As an example, a paragraph of text would look like this:
Terrorism works, to a large extent, because(^P)
terrorists use the media to(^P)
ensure their cause receives the publicity they desire.(^P)
The question:
How do I go about removing all the carriage return (^P) characters at the end of every line while retaining the same character (the second ^P) to keep the paragraphs apart?

All suggestions will be gratefully received.

Thanks in advance.

I am trying to get Word 2007 to hide my unused status bar, but unfortunately there does not seem to be an interface toggle for this in the 2007 version. I then tried to copy and paste a macro for this, which worked, but only when I manually ran it each time I opened a document. Is there a way I can set it to run automatically alongside another macro I have running when a document opens?

I know nothing about macro language...I just copied and pasted the code. So being as descriptive as possible with your solution would help me.

Here's the code (which currently works) for automatically adjusting the zoom on my documents:

Public Sub AutoOpen()
ActiveWindow.ActivePane.View.Zoom.Percentage = 100
End Sub
Here's the code for hiding the status bar that I want to also run automatically whenever I open a document:

Application.CommandBars("Status Bar").Visible = False
