.rtf Microsoft Word document files aren't opened

Q: .rtf Microsoft Word document files aren't opened

Suddenly, I cannot open an: .rtf Microsoft Word document file.

It is an incoming file from a trusted source.

I can download the file, see the corresponding file images, then when I
click on an image, I get a message from Micosoft Word (with the yellow
triangle enclosing an exclamation point) which says: The server application,
source file or item cannot be found. Make sure the application is properly
installed, and that it has not been deleted, moved, or renamed.

Please help me open this file, it is a work-related file, and I've tried so
many times already.

Thanking you in advance.

Preferred Solution: .rtf Microsoft Word document files aren't opened

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.)

A: .rtf Microsoft Word document files aren't opened

Was Office loaded on that machine at work?
If so it is my guess that one of two things is happening.

1) The Office dll that displays pictures is resident on the work network and is only loaded when it is needed - thus displaying that message.

2) A similar thing with the document that just the link (and thumbnail) to the pictures were included in the document. The actual pictures are still on the network.

Most GIF files save properly from Firefox or IE and are opened without a problem with Windows Picture and Fax Viewer (I'm using WinXP). However, some GIFs don't save or aren't opened properly. For example, I save this file here ( http://macrochan.org/view.php?u=7LRQONLLQFMAAMENXWTEDJNLOOXYAUFE ), and the image viewing stops once the shoe hits the ground after hitting the bear's head. This happened on one of my other WinXP computers, as well.

What's the cause of this? A bad GIF file, a problem with Microsoft's products (again), or is it just not saving properly? My only guess is that the GIF is too long for the picture viewer and it slows down.

(Another example is an image that was this: http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_usb_0QYUB...SdN0zi2U/s1600/penguin_animated_push_over.gif, but it was from a different source (this example file works fine, but another did not).)

Welcome to the TSG Forum.
Not sure what's wrong with WP&F viewer .. It works OK for me in everything except WP&F.
I'd suggest to use Irfanview instead .. (It's my default Viewer and Editor)
Seems to work OK after I removed the white line in frame 39 (the last frame) and re-saved it using Photoshop.
I couldn't find anything else wrong with it.

I have a Word 97 document (.doc) that all of a sudden is no longer openable by the very Word 97 that created it. I tried what the error message said, but nothing helped.

Is it "corrupted"? Is there a file repair tool that will tell me what's wrong and fix it?

It will open in WordPad, but of course is mostly squares.

A:I cannot find a word document I opened as an email attachment

The file will be located in a folder somewhere in
C:\Users\(youraccount)\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet

"\AppData" is normally hidden
"\Temporary Internet Files" is normally a hidden protected Operating System
file

You'll have to remove the checkmark (if they're hidden) in Windows Explorer:
Organize - Folder & Search Options - View

Good luck in finding it, though.

The correct way is to save the attachment first, then open it
from the saved location, if you wish to edit it.

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?
 
Thanks

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:
 
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/12630878/word-vba-document-readonly-status-incorrectly-returns-false

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."
'UserForm1.Show
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?

I looked around the forum a little, but I didn't see this problem mentioned. I'm sorry if this has been asked about before!

I?m having a strange, glitchy problem with Microsoft Word and Microsoft Worksheet. In Word, when I try to cut or copy, for some reason formatting won?t carry over. For instance, if I try to copy an underlined word, when I paste it somewhere, the pasted copy won?t be underlined. This includes fonts, too.

And for some reason, I?m unable to cut data in worksheets. When I try, it only copies the data and the usual black box that forms around the selection doesn?t appear. Worksheet isn?t copying format, either.

This seems a little haphazard. Sometimes if I restart my computer they might work, but this isn?t always the case and I?m afraid that this solution is only temporary (and it?s a horrible solution that doesn?t always work).

I use these programs a lot, so this has been excruciatingly vexing. I tried using the help service inside of the respective programs, but they didn?t offer any solutions. I have the full versions of both and they?ve worked fine for me for years until recently.

I would appreciate any suggestions! Thanks in advance!

If you can save the file on the older computer as a .csv file it will open in Excel if you have that on the laptop. As far as I'm aware .wdb files are database documents so you'll probably struggle to open it in any word processing program without the use of a third party file converting program.

Hello everyone, I've been having some issues with Word 97 lately and I'm absolutely stumped. Any help would be wonderful...

Twice now, I've had Word 97 tell me that it cannot open select documents; a few weeks ago I tried to open a doc and it gave me this message:

Word cannot open the document.
Try one or more of the following:
* On the File menu, click Open to open the document.
* Make sure the file has a .DOC extension

I did both; it would not open from the File menu and it DID have a .doc extension. I tried everything I could think of to get it back, including moving it to another computer and trying to open in there, renaming the document, everything. The closest I got to getting it back was opening it in WordPad - even then, it ate certain paragraphs up and lost the last page completely.

After having no luck at getting it back, I decided that since the document was only 3 pages long, I could stand to retype it and deleted the document. I had no problems opening up any of my many other documents; and so I figured, somehow that one file got corrupted and I just needed to cut it as a loss.

But now, it has happened again with another, much longer document. Again, I can get some of it back with WordPad/RTF, but not all of it. As before, all other documents are fine and openable, just not this one. I have scanned for viruses and the like - my computer seems to be clean.

A:All my files are opened as excel instead of word

Well you can Print in the interim. Instead of pushing a file to an application via its File Association, you can always open the Application and then open the document and print it.

So if you try to open a PDF, DOC, DOCx, and others they are all associated to MS Excel ?

Did you Right-Click on a PDF file and choose "Open With" ---> Choose Default Program
And set it back to Adobe Reader ( or whatever PDF viewer you use ) ?

likewise...

Did you Right-Click on a DOC and DOCx files and choose "Open With" ---> Choose Default Program
And set it back to Microsoft Word ?

Additionally...
Did you go to Control Panel and use the Default Programs applet and then choose "Set your Default Program" and then choose the Program like Adobe Reader, Microsoft Word and have it "Set this program as default" ?

A:Microsoft Word crashes when one particular document is scrolled

Based on the error message, there is an add-in in Word that is causing the document to crash. Try opening Word in safe mode by opening a command prompt, and type in winword.exe /safe. Or, go to the Start menu, find the Office 2010 folder, hold down the Ctrl key while clicking on Office, and keep holding the Ctrl key until you are prompted if you want to open it in Safe mode.
 
If you can open the document and scroll through it without issues, the problem is one of your add-ins.
 
You can disable add-ins by going to File>Options and selecting add-ins. Unfortunately, it will be a process of trial and error to determine which add-in may be causing the issue.

I'm using Office 2007 with Windows 7 Ultimate in this case.

I have changed the default settings for Word (font, line spacing, etc.) and new Documents to open with my settings when I open them from the Word shortcut (to the .exe file in Program Files). I followed this guide: How do I... Change the normal template in Word 2007 to my preferences? This works fine.

But when I open a new document from the right-click context menu, it always goes back to the old default settings (with Calibri font, etc.), even if I redo the settings again.

The "Normal.dotm" file in C:\Users\[Username]\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Templates folder has my changed settings. Where does the context-new word document get the old settings? I've looked at HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.docx but would not like to alter the ShellNew key without guidance.

Any suggestions for untangling this would be most welcome.

Try restarting your computer after changing the template, Word might still be using the old Normal.dotm.

Hello,

Can anyone offer some assistance. I am currently working on a 5 page Microsoft word 2000 document and I have not inserted any page or section breaks. The strange thing is that faint dotted lines appear accross each page when I view it in normal view. I can't seem to delete the dotted lines. When I attempt to print the document it prints out around 60 pages with a few lines of text on each page.

Many thanks for your help.

I am using Office 2000 with XP Pro, IE8, and SP3. I had three pages typed in MS Word for a newspaper article and lost everything except the first two paragraphs. I've never had this happen, so I certainly have no idea of what caused the problem. I was wondering if there is anyway to recover my information, there was a great deal of thought and work involved in this document. I would greatly appreciate any help I may receive, this has been energy draining as I have tried to recover this information to no avail.

Thanks for any help someone may be willing to offer.

Can anyone try and explain this?

I can have a document open and already typed up; if I go back through it to edit it, instead of the characters being 'pushed along ' either by the space bar or by the letters inserted pushing them along to accomodate the inserted ones, the charaters instead get wiped off ; as I move the characters with the space bar, they get wiped off instead of moved along

I hope that makes sense more than 'clear as mud'

but can anyone hazzard a guess as to why this happens?

A:Oddity While Creating A Document In Microsoft Word

Step 4:Add text by moving the cursor to where you want the new text and begin typing, pushing the existing text to the side. If you want to erase the old words as you type the new, press the "Insert" key on your keyboard. You can toggle between the two choices; when you are in overwrite mode the "OVR" in the status bar at the bottom of the screen will be highlighted. Another option is to highlight the text you want to delete and begin typing. The text will be erased automatically.Sticky "Insert" key?http://www.ehow.com/

Please help, we are renting a Dell computer from Rainbow Rental and it has all the latest bells and whistles the only problem we have is when we type a document in Microsoft word 98 and save that document and close-the next time we want to open the document we get a message saying the document is locked by another user 'Rainbow Rental' open as a read-only document or notify when document is not in use--and when we push the read-only button the window closes. Does microsoft word need to be re-installed. We also get a "normal.dot" template message as well. This is very frustrating because we have kids who do papers for school and unless they print print right then and there they can never get the document opended again. Please help us!

Thanks

Call Rainbow and tell them their PC is a piece of junk. Actually, it's not the PC, but the software is poorly install and should have been tested.

Try Word troubleshooting, which CANNOT hurt:

Hello!      What does it mean on my tool bar at the far right side:  paper found in history but...& document recovery posted...by the little x where you can pose a question? 
Next, thanks for the info about back-up saving documents under tools, and every 5 minutes.  That will help alot, and I didn't know about that option as well.  I have tons of floppys that I purchased when  I got the computer but haven't used them.  I never knew that the computer could save since it wasn't able to at the college or public library, so I had to save on floppy then.  I appreciate your help once again.

I don't know how I've done it, but everytime I open a new document in Word the cursor flashes at the very top of the document (i.e. there's no top or bottom margin). I know that by selecting 'header and footer' I can insert these, but it is a pain to have to do everytime I want to start a new document.
Having read another thread where the blank templete had been altered by mistake I took the advice and tried renaming 'normal.dot' to 'normal.old' but this hasn't made any difference.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

It sounds like your margins are too narrow for the printer. Try adjusting them.

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.

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

Also, if this helps- I tried to save another Document and MSW says... Read more
