Excel, Word 2016

Q: Excel, Word 2016

I've been having a great deal of trouble recently with Window 10-- Excel 2016 and Word 2016 and hope you can help.
First I "lost" 8 months of input in an Excel workbook. I contacted Microsoft but without success. Now when I try to access a workbook in Excel I get a uac pop-up asking if I "want to allow this app to make changes to your device" and when I try to access a Word doc there is an order to "confirm your account". This is so annoying---how do I get rid of these?
Norton won't allow Sysinfo.exe because it is unsafe..

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 acquired Microsoft Office Home & Student 2016, which brings along World, Excel, Powerpoint and OneNote. The instalation process got stuck in 95%, but the products were installed anyway. Powerpoint and OneNote opened normally, but World and Excel just keep "starting" forever, like in this screen: I tried unstalling and reinstalling, but both process were always not completed (getting stuck in some step of the process), as said before. It was a really nightmare actually.After 2 days of hard searching, I got lucky and managed to find out that if I stop the process Print Spooler on Services, Word (and Excel) instantly opens, but I couldn't use printers obviously. Now I could successfully unstall and reinstall Office, but doing this still did not fix the issue.I've already tried reinstalling Print Spooler using third-app and erased all the default printers that came along with my PC, but it still interferes with Word and Excel (but Powerpoint and Onenote works normally)I haven't the oportunity yet of trying to print anything random (like a PDF file or something), because I'm not having acess to printers this moment. Any suggetions? [edit] Just other info: if I run Word/Excel with Printer Spooler disabled, and then starts it, Word/Excel start to not respond anymore

Hello,
I have a problem with my Word. I use Microsoft Word 2016 to write, and I'm more comfortable using this than Word 2007. However, when I save a file using Word 2016, I open it later using File Explorer and it opens in 2007. I cannot figure out why this happens. I even go to my document, select "Open With...", click on "Word 2016", and enter. This still opens as Word 2007. I've tried researching, but no one else seems to have this problem.
Can anyone tell me what to do? Maybe I'm overlooking something obvious since I'm not really a techie. If anybody can help, please send detailed instructions!

Thank you!

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.

Hello:
I recently upgraded to Office 2016, and whenever I use Word 2016, it freezes up. It is set to Compatibility Mode, like all my previous versions of Word (except the first one!), because many of my colleagues in small nonprofit organizations have older versions. I have an ongoing malware program and also did a complete scan and found nothing, so it's not a virus. I've also rechecked the settings, but I can't see anything amiss.

The freeze comes like this: When I open an older text (from a colleague so it is in an earlier version of Word), it opens fine. But the first time I try to scroll or page down, it freezes. Also, when I try to save an older text, it freezes. And when I reopen Word and click on the recovered text in the right-hand column, it freezes immediately. I seem to be able to create new texts, and even save them.

Any ideas about how I can fix this? This is my workhorse program so I really need it. Thanks.

Hi

I converted a large addin from excel 2003 using DAO to access several workbooks.

Now using excel 2016.

The addin works in both Update and read-only modes. A 2nd user logging on will open the workbooks in read only mode automatically.

The conversion to 2016 went well but DAO will not work when the workbooks are opened in read-only mode. I get the error "external table is not in the expected format".

The exact same code works fine when the workbooks are opened in update mode.

Very puzzling - can anybody help?

I am really frustrated as I have a lot of users depending on the outcome. They have to continue using 2003 for the moment.
The line in the code that fails is ...

Set db = OpenDatabase(myfile, False, False, "Excel 8.0")

myfile is an .xlsx file

I was having trouble with Microsoft Word 2016. I wanted to have no jagged sides, so I fixed it to do that. But now there are unusually large spaces between words. I tried to do I forced space like I did in Windows 8 but it didn't work. Any suggestions for Windows 10 forced spaces?

A:Forced Spaces on Word 2016

When you justify paragraphs, MS Word will equalize the spacing between words that are on the same line.  If you think about, this is the only way your paragraphs can end up being aligned to both the left and right margins.  Obviously, there are times when this can result in large unsightly spaces.  The only way to avoid these unsightly spaces is to hyphenate some words.  I don't use MS Office, but there should be a setting somewhere that will apply hyphenation for you automatically.  You can check to see if this setting is on.  Also, it's possible that "hyphenation" dictionaries may be available for you to install to help with this.

With the new Microsoft Word 2016 if you insert an equation through the Equation button within the Insert menu you get this new-looking editor.


Equations created in such a way can be viewed in inline, professional or linear mode and offer advanced options.

But if you use a keyboard shortcut (Alt+= or any user defined one) instead you end up getting this old-fashioned editor:


And if you edit equations from documents made by other people sometimes they are opened with the new editor, sometimes with the old one.

Can anyone explain the difference between them and how to force Word to always use the new one, please?, I would like to get it with a keyboard shortcut.
And also how to convert an equation made with the old editor onto the new format?

Hi:
I just had a very strange result when converting a Word 2016 docx, with headings and Table of Contents, to pdf. I've got Adobe Acrobat Pro and attempted to both "print to pdf" and Save As pdf. Each time I got a popup to update the Contents index. Even if I canceled, the pages would reorder such that one of the images and captions of page 16 would show up on page three. I tried deleting and reinstalling the index; saving as a doc file then attempting pdf; uploading to a free pdf converter. Nothing worked. Eventually I saved as RTF, then converted to PDF. Yay. That worked. When I then saved the rtf as docx, it again successfully converted to pdf. Took me about an hour to troubleshoot.

Any ideas out there? Seems like there must have been some gremlin in the TOC code that got stripped out converting to RTF. Weird. Any thoughts or suggestions would be welcome.

Thanks,

Hello TSG!

I am having a hard time with Conditional Formatting. Picture this:

Column A - Room
Column B - User
Column C - Computer
Column D - Expired Date (in date format)
Column E - Replacement Date (in date format)

Column D & E has a conditional format of turn red when cell is less than today's date ( =today() )

What I need is in Column E is to allow have cells turn yellow if the date in the cell is > cell d but < 1 year from date in cell d.

So for example:


User 1's computer would be red in both columns D and E.
Users 2-4 would have red in column D, but yellow in column E.
User 5 will stay clear from formatting.

My issue is that I can't do a blanket conditional format for the yellow as I can do with red as it focus on one cell (i.e. $D$2), unless I am missing something here.

I imported a group of cells from Excel 2016 into a Word document in Word 2016. Under the Developer tab in Word, I added a Text Form Field under the Legacy Tools toolbox. I locked the rest of the form and I can see that I can then only type in the Text Form Field box I created. That works correctly.

When I hold down a key and fill the Text Form Field box, my right margin stays but my left margin and bottom of the text box move so that the words wrap (as I'd like) but the data in the locked area to the left of the field get distorted as the Text Form Field fills with data.

I don't know how to stop this but I know that it can be stopped because this is the second form I have created in such a manner and the first form behaves correctly. On the first form, if I hold down a key and fill the box, the words wrap but the left and right margins stay and the bottom of the text box only gets bigger (not the left side as is happening on my second form as I described above).

I have hovered over the left and right margins and when I get the double line to move them in and out, I have moved both and then one or the other at a time in and out and it doesn't fix the issue.

I also tried using the first form (which works correctly), deleting the existing data in it and importing the new Excel cells into it. The same issue happens. I don't know what I did on the first form to lock the left and right so data only expands downward.

Any suggestions?

I was rather upset to see that Microsoft, in its wisdom, has removed the Passive Grammar checker in word 2016. Basically I use it in writing, as do many others, so why was it removed. It seems the last version is in 2013,so that means I have to go back 3
years to be able  to use this.
It is bizarre since word is supposed to have a grammar and spell checker!!!

I am in the process of upgrading from Win XP & Office 2007 to Win 10 & Office 2016. I have everything installed and it seems to be running. I copied all of My Documents over using a thumb drive. Now I need to copy several folders of user templates.
 
On Win XP, they are in:

C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Application Data\Microsoft\Templates\...
Can I just copy them over like I did with My Documents? And if so, where to?
 
 

A:Where does Word 2016 want user templates stored?

%appdata%\Microsoft\Templates. The %appdata% usually translates to C:\Users\<your user name>\AppData\Roaming. The AppData folder is usually hidden, so you'll need to click on the View tab in File Explorer and check the "Hidden Items" box.

For clarification, are you using Word 2016 (part of Office 2016) and is the document a word doc (.docx), PDF or what?

Whenever I click on the file tab in Word or Powerpoint 2016 (doesn't happen for Excel) the programme crashes. The tech support at Microsoft are unable to resolve so I'm wondering if it is a HP conflict with Office or Windows 10. Has anyone else experienced this and found out how to resolve the problem?

(Windows 7): I have a Word doc I created where I'm pasting text from a PDF and then editing it. LONG document. It's been fine right up till now, where all of a sudden the margins have shifted an inch or so to the right, resulting in all the text being further right than the previous part of the doc. I have tried "everything" as far as manipulating the margin settings, both in Layout--Margins, and also just trying to drag them to correct the mess. Nothing works. Somehow I did "something" and I can't get the rest of the document to line up properly.

Any ideas? Help!
