Word 2003 Forms being used in Word 2007; And Creating New

Q: Word 2003 Forms being used in Word 2007; And Creating New

I just started using Word 2007 and am having some difficulty adjusting to the changes. Unfortunately this is the software I am stuck with and no upgrade to 2010 is possible.

Specifically, I have created a lot of forms in Word 2003 by using text boxes to be filled by the user. I've also used links and references so that the user doesn't have to re-type some of the duplicated information throughout the form.

After creating these forms, I protected the documents and other people within my organization use them as templates. These forms need to be uniform throughout the department.

Several problems. I'm having a hard time familiarizing myself with Forms in Word 2007. Another issue, is that I can't get the Forms Spell Check to work like it did in Word 2003. I want my users to be able to check the protected portion of the document. They also need to be able to unprotect the document if they have to make some changes in the form.

It would be very helpful if there was a Word 2007 guide that explains the differences from word 2003 and offers an interactive training.

I'm desperate. Can you help me?

I have several Word 2007 documents containing forms controls that I need to make compatible with Word 2003. When I save the 2007 doc as 2003, the controls become static content. I tried replacing them with legacy controls but can't get them to work. When I insert a drop-down list box, only the first entry in the list displays and there is no drop-down arrow allowing selection of other items in the list. Can you help?

I have created a form with fields and drop-downs. 1. Is there a way after tabbing through the form's fields to convert back to the word processor of Word to allow the author be able to type a narrative and still have all the functions of Word? and 2. I have followed advise on this site to have a field cross-referenced to another field if the answer is the same. Within the first field I checked "calculate on exit" and on the second, insert, reference, quick reference and chose the "text#" of the first field. When you tab away from the first field (while protected) a blank box is promted asking "ok" or "cancel". I have to click one answer twice and the field does appear at the second location. Is there another way to auto-copy fields or a way to get rid of the blank box being prompted? Working with Windows XP. I would appreciate any help. Thanks.

I have created an auto fill form in Microsoft 2007, but my sample (directional) text does not the grey highlight behind it indicating to the user where each text field is located. If i manually apply a highlight, then the user cannot get rid of the highlight after their form is filled due to the document protection.

All the information I have found online indicates that the sample text should have the grey highlight which then will disappear once the user populates each field. Is there a setting to fix this, or am I creating the document incorrectly to cause this difference?

Well i did a big report on my computer with Word Perfect i couldnt print it so i took to school on my flash drive. IN my first class i edited it on Word 2007 and in the class i could print it they had Word 2003 and i couldnt open my file and now i cant even open it in word perfect. I doubt i can use the laptops for a while anyway i can open this on wordperfect
 

A:Solved: Word Perfect- Word 2003 - word 2007

If you saved the file in the "new" Word 2007 format (with a file extension of .docx) then you will be unable to open it in the other applications.

For Word 2003 you can install a converter, but I know of no XLM converter for WordPerfect.

When using Word 2007 you need to "save as" Word 97-2003 format to retain backwards compatibility.

Windows Vista Home Premium SP1, Office 2007

I know how to save documents created in Word 2007 so it can be used with Word 2003 done manually.

Can someone inform me whether I can set my "save as" so documents created in Word 2007 will be always saved as default to be compatible with Word 2003?

A:Saving Documents Created in Word 2007 to be Compatible with Word 2003

You can us this compatibility update to read Office 2007 docs (Word, Excel, PowerPoint) In earlier versions of Office - Download details: Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack for Word, Excel, and PowerPoint 2007 File Formats. Meaning you can save your Word docs in their original format and Word 2003 will read them.

You might want to check this link out as well - http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/wo...444731033.aspx

As far as setting a "default" save, to be honest, I'm not sure if this can be done or not.

Hope this helps.

At my work we have templates from Word 2003.

When we open them in Word 2007 they doesn´t work as they should.

We have for example a menu like

2 Electronics
2.1 Phones
2.1.1 Mobile phones

When you make an uppdate on the menu the sub-numbers disapear so it is
2 Electronics
Phones
Mobile phones

Also in 2003 you get a menu to the right where you can change in the list not only the types but also the numbering. Is there something like that in 2007?

A couple of things.

Firstly here is an interactive guide for some of the features in 2003 - 2007. It is useful in some circumstances
http://office.microsoft.com/en-gb/word/HA100744321033.aspx

In regards to using 2003 templates for 2007 - i noticed that not all things worked in the same way in 2007 especially when it came to printing (things would display differently to how they would print)

I work for a big company and i had to redesign alot of templates. Sorry.

In regards to changing the numbering, you now right click on one of the actual numbers within the document and you can change the numbering from there.

Hope that all makes sense.

I am running Vista and Word 2007. I would like to save the document as a Word 2003 document so it can be opened in older versions of Word. I use "save as" and select Save as Word 97-2003, but when I try to open this document on an older machine "Windows XP and Word 2003" it opens with a lots of symbols and then the text is jumbled into one continuous paragraph.

Firstly, Word 2007 can be set to save all documents in compatability mode (.doc instead of .docx). Just save as, or under Word options set it as the default

Secondly Word is full backwards compatible with earlier versions.

Hi, I am creating a form in Word 2003 (Running over Window XP Professional). I have inserted a field called Sdate and on the next line Firstname. When I reference the field Firstname in other parts of the document, it also includes the field Sdate.
So my result looks like this:
Dear Sdate
Firstname
instead of
Dear Firstname

I am having no problems with referencing other fields, only these two. I have removed the date field and put it back in and still the same result.

Hope this makes sense and hope you can help.

A:MS Word 2003 Forms

Hi lotsacats,

Are you using Bookmarks as Field References?
Maybe the Ref for Firstname also spans the previous line including Sdate:

In Tools /Options/View tick the Bookmarks box and then check if the square brackets [ ] are like this:

[Sdate
Firstname]

If so, delete the bookmark for Firstname and recreate it ensuring it only covers the Firstname line.

Hi there,

I'm creating a document containing form fields in Word 2007.

I want to have drop-downs and so I've added the drop down list control. Viewing the properties, I created options for user's to select from.

There's also two further options in the Properties:

Content control cannot be deleted
Contents cannot be edited

Now, here's the thing...when I Restrict Editing on teh form to Form filling only with the first option selected for the drop-down, users cannot delete the control, they can make a selection from the available options but they can edit the option they have selected (including deleting all the text).

Enabling the second option displays the currently selected item for the drop-down only, i.e. the user cannot select any other option.

Entirely useless. I want to have a list of options that the user can select from but not edit in any way, shape or form.

The only way I've found to get round this is to use the legacy drop down control. I shouldn't have to do this.

FYI, I'm NOT using compatibility mode so it's not that.

Anyone else had this issue?

Hi and Welcome to TSF!

You're going to want to uninstall MS Office 2003 before installing Office 2007. This will not remove your documents. However, its always a good idea to create a backup of your documents before doing such a thing.

If you have a product key for Office 2007 you can use that with a trial to activate the product.

I have this form that I made on my 97-03 version of Word. I had inserted check boxes (that work when you click on them) and fields where you can enter information. In the old version of word, there was this protection button that looked like a lock and you can click it to protect the document in which case it would only be useable in the fields where you can type and the check boxes. When you click it again you could go back to editing the document.

I have jsut been upgraded to 2007 Word and I want to modify my document but I do not know where that little lock button is so that i can unportect my document and change the wording. Please let me know.

The field extends that far, but no indicator of the entire field length. Thanks to everyone for being patient. Attempted to be specific as my question seemed unclear in other unrelated forums.

I am wondering if it is possible to do the following in word 2007. The reason I want to use this program is for easy access and completion by multiple low-level skilled people in my organisation.

I want to have a central word doc with employee data (ie names, addresses, phones, emails etc..) and have this data auto insert into a series of forms on multiple documents.

This data is used many times and figure this will make it easy to ensure all the data is current as it will all read off the one central document, also will the human error factor and lost time to enter the same data several times.

Is this possible?

Hi

I need to create a template in Word 2007 which will enable me to subsequently print out letters to the members of my association. If it was for only the headers and footers, it would have been fine. But what I need is :

1. A header with the name of the association, its president and secretary

2. A footer with the address for correspondence

3. A side bar on the left side listing all the members of the executive committee.

This last one is difficult to incorporate. I wanted something like a header/footer in the left margin so that when I open a new document based on this template, the cursor should not even for moment go into that side bar of the members' list.

Does anyone know how to do this?

Hello.

I am trying to create a contract template for our lawn care business. There are 22 different services that our customers can choose to add, each with a price specific to their own property. At the bottom of the service and pricing list there is a "sub-total" line, with a "5% discount" line underneath, and under that the "total" line.

Like so:

weekly lawn maintenance $35.00 Is there a way to "make" these numbers add up, and
Shrub trimming $150.00 appear in the areas below? So that we don't have to
Fertilization $35.00 manually do all of the calculations, thereby saving
ourselves literally days of work.​Sub-total $220.00
5% discount $11.00
Total $209.00

Also, on the contract we have payment options for our customers. Another big time consumer has been manually calculating these options.

Like so:

$209.00 payable at a flat rate over 9 months (March through November) = $23.22/month

Hey All,

I have a document in Word 2003 that is five pages, and what I want to be able to do is to create a footer that will ONLY SHOW ON THE LAST PAGE OF THE DOCUMENT. I have gone into Help Sections for the program on-line and there is information about creating headers and footers, breaking them up into sections, making different headers and footers on alternating pages. But I don't want them to alternate, nor do I want the one footer taking up the bottom of every page.

The example of the format that I need is the following:

Pages 1-5 contain the article
The last page, page 5 contains the following text as a footer, (text is for illustration only)

A:Solved: Word 2003: Creating A Footer on Last Page Only?

What you do depends on how the document is laid out. If there is a page break between pages 4 and 5, you will need to change it to a Next Page Section Break. In Word, the thinking is that changes to the headers and footers create new sections in the document. In this case, page 5 would start a new section because the footer will be different than the preceding pages. But before we continue, be sure to click File / Page Setup / Layout and make sure that there is no checkmark on either Different odd and even or Different first page.

To insert a Next Page Section Break

First, you need to see what you're doing and the easiest way to see the page break is to change to Draft view (on the Word menu, click View / Normal).

Place the cursor in front of the first character on page 5.
On Word's menu, click Insert / Break
Locate Next Page and click on it.

You will have a page break and a section break. Place your cursor on the Page Break and press Delete on your keyboard to get rid of it.

You can set your page view back to Print Layout by clicking View / Print Layout on the Word menu.

If you place your cursor on page four and look at the left side of the status bar at the bottom of the screen, you will see that it says Section 1. Place the cursor on page 5 and the status bar will change to Section 2. Go into the footer area for Section 2 (if you go into the footer and it says Section 1 Footer, either scroll down until it says Section 2 Footer or click the next section but... Read more

I am having trouble with something that seems like it should be so simple! I need to recreate a form for my boss that she only has in hard copy. I am using a table and removing the borders so that everything is straight in the form that people will need to fill in. I need to put a place for people to write on, like a line, and each cell will need text then a line. I tried using the underscore but it comes out looking spotty, meaning there are spaces between each underscore.

there has to be a better way of doing this? I have never recieved any formal education with regards to word 2003, so all I know I've learned by trial & error but I can't seem to figure this one out.

I can't access photobucket or anything like that, so I can't add a screenshot. Basically it needs to look like this:

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.

I have a very simple Word 2007 macro-enabled template that has a single ActiveX checkbox control and a simple one-line Document_New macro. When this .dotm file is stored in a network folder that has been setup in Word 2007 to be a trusted location, Word always aborts when creating a new file based on this template.

If the ActiveX control is removed, or the macro code is removed, or the file is placed in a non-trusted location (and you select the option to enable macros when you get the security banner warning), it functions just fine. It's just the combination of ActiveX, macro code in a trusted location that causes the crash. I can e-mail the file for those that want to check it out.

Anyone got any ideas how to correct this strange one?

BTW, I have Office 2007 SP2.

Here's a link:

I just figured this one out as well and was having the same issue.

Greetings, and thanks in advance for your help.

First off a little background...

We have many documents that we use on a regular basis in which we make small corrections to and save them and print them using a MS word template that we created. Unfortunately we were not able to save and protect the formatting of those templates because we need to add more information to the document. And after working perfectly for many years we finally had someone that thought they could "improve" what was already working....and changed the formatting of our "Printdate" Word macro, but not on all the documents only a few.

My question for you is....

1) Is there a way to do a "Search and Replace" with all of the documents to update the "PRINTDATE /@ mm/dd/yy HH:mm" formula that works correctly, with whatever is currently in use on specific pages?

2) Is there a way to protect the template and still alow users to type on the form? Currently the templete itself is protected, however when someone creates a new document it is saved as a .docx file

Thanks for your help.

A:hide mode in MS Word 2003 or 2007

Hello kf10,

Welcome to Seven Forums.

I don't know of a way to do this in word. Only way I know to accomplish this in word is to select all the answers, leaving the ans) portion. Hit delete, and print the page. Once it starts printing, you can use Ctrl.+Z to undo the deletion and then print the parents copies. Or, if you've saved a copy of the doc., you could print the parents page then select (hold down ctrl to multiple select) and delete the answers/print the students copies and when you close the doc. don't save the changes.

Hope this helps.

I'm coming across an issue that I'm not sure if it's a fluke or a compatibility issue. In my environment, all users have Office 2003. A select few are piloting 2007. The 2007 users don't get their Readability Statistics after spell check if the document was originally authored in Word 2003. It still works fine in 2003 though. Documents authored in 2007 work fine as well. Has anyone come across this?

I haven't been able to find any mention of this on the internet.

Happy Holidays!

Running Office 2007. Have made a template for a client that features VB (not legacy) CheckBoxes, ComboBoxes, and TextBoxes. The template is a one page document with tables; the client (a dental surgeon) enters patient name and date, checks various boxes about patient condition/recommendations for treatment, selects text from combo boxes. Auto text will also be included.

The problem: The template takes up to 60 seconds to load on his machine (New Dell, 1Gb RAM, NTFS, Office 2003). I save the template in "compatibility mode" on my machine (P4 2.8 Ghz 1Gb FAT32). Also, the template takes about 10-15 seconds to load on my machine.

How can I speed it up? Is it a compatibility issue?

Thanks.

So if I had 50 names it would produce 50 documents or something?

Is that even possible?

A:Merging Data From Excel Into Word (2003 Or 2007)

I think you can use Mail Merge to do this kind of thing.

I'm guessing your spreadsheet is in the .CSV format?

If you are using 2003, I'm not sure what the headings are at the top, but with 2007 you need to choose the mailings tab and then select start Mail Merge.

Select the Wizard and you should then have an option somewhere down the line to import a data source.

After doing this you should be able to insert the merge fields which should look like <<Surname>> or something like that.

From this you should then be able to create a template letter and print all the records out.

Hope this helps,

I have created a business letterhead as a Word Template with company's logo etc as a picture on top right of 1st page.

When I type into the document or insert autotext entries, the picture stays put, even when I go onto second page. But when I paste text onto the first page, if its more than one page long, it causes the picture to relocate to the second page.

I've tried anchoring the picture. The picture is formatted to be square to text with vertical position absolute to page and "move object with text" is unchecked. I've also tried pasting without formatting. None of these work.

How do I get the picture to stay in its original position when pasting text of more than one page long?

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.

Hi all,

Hoping somebody can help me out here. I sent this off to Microsoft about a month ago and have since received three emails in response, one of which said 'try reinstalling' another saying 'are you sure this is the only program in which there is a problem' and a third saying 'please bear with us, we're experiencing high levels of requests right now and need more time.' That was ten days ago.

Yes. Well. I'm hoping somebody out there can help instead

So some background information. I purchased a new laptop about two months ago, on which had Windows Vista (business) automatically installed. I installed myself Office 2007 and updated all the necessary security features and upgrades and so forth. All programs are genuine. This is a decent quality laptop - decent speed (set me back around $2k AU)

About six weeks ago now I began having problems with my computer. It would suddenly freeze on application - the screen would go white and I would lose the ability to click on anything else. alt+ctr+delete had no effect, nor did leaving it alone for a while. Every time this happened I would need to hard restart.

After a system of elimination, I realised the problem occurred when I was opening 2003 Word Documents. (Almost) every time I opened such a document I would freeze up. As a uni student, I'm constantly receiving various documents from other parties which I have been left unable to access.

Office 2007 can read previous versions of Office no matter which program in Office you are using, other versions will need the compatibility pack from Microsoft so they can read 2007 version.

I did use Office 2007 myself recently in a temp job for seven weeks and I don&#8217;t remember seeing an option to save a document in an earlier version format, is the computer is still under warranty?

What ram and processor have you got? Some problems with Vista are caused because If buying a new PC or laptop beware of the differences between &#8216;Vista-Capable&#8217; and &#8216;Vista Premium Ready&#8217;
A PC that is &#8216;Vista-capable&#8217; can run Windows Vista, but won&#8217;t necessarily get everything working. <<<<<<<<

&#8216;VistaPremium-ready&#8217; PC, can get all of the more demanding features such as Aero working correctly.

At the very least Vista needs a truckload of memory and a lot of the cheaper notebooks only come with 512mb of ram unless you have paid for extra, where at least a gig is needed, Ideally 2 gig of memory would be the way to go.

But you did say a reasonable lap top and going by what you wrote it obviously was not like this at the beginning. (Two weeks after you brought it, it started to play up, or is that when you installed Office and its been playing up since you installed it?

After I click on email, the cursor just freezes where it is. I either have to reboot or break the job (CTRL-ALT-DEL) and THEN all works fine.

I recently installed Office 2007 on a new Vista 64 bit system. I was unable to install my previous version of WordPerfect Office 12. When using WP on my previous Windows XP system, I was able to go into the word processor, click open, go to the wp folder (where I kept all my documents) and do a search based on a particular word I was looking for. For example, I could type in the word "hebrew" in the files box and each document file that contained that word (not only in the file name but in the contents of the file) was listed. I could then preview the contents of each document file and open the one I wanted.

Does this feature work in Word 2007 under Vista 64? I have only been able to find a file name with the word I type, even though I know many other document files contain the word I type in the files box. This has been very frustrating because it means I have to preview every file to find the one I want rather than just the files with the typed word in its contents.

Thank you for your time in this matter.

Hi folks,

I have this problem that is hard to search for on Google. We have a lot of word 2000 documents connected to a simpel text data file (data.doc) that is used with mail merge.

Here is our process:
1.) data.doc is opened, filled with all variablenames we can use in our documents (name, country, etc.)
2.) data.doc is opened, filled with the actual data (from a database) belonging to the variables name (Kees, Japan, etc.)
3.) Our vb.net 2008 application does step 1 and 2, then starts a template word 2000 document which has that data.doc file attached for mail merge. The template is now filled in with the correct data.
4.) vb.net 2008 application tells MS Word to print the document.
5.) Works fine and we have ourselves a nice document filled in with data we specified in the vb.net 2008 application.

Now comes the problem, some new computers will have office 2007 instead of office 2000 installed, during testing we have encountered that it does not error but the office 2007 installed computer does not fill in the data and just shows mergefield names <<name>> <<country>>. Also when printed out. So it seems like the datafile is not connected when opening the template in word 2007.

If we let our vb.net 2008 application show us the document visually first, we can re-attach the data file again and we can print the data, however there are 3 thing wrong with this approach:

Hi,
Don't mind the curious ones, but I'm one of them. So anyway, almost one year ago now, the Word macro virus W97M/Marker.C was running rampant around Gordon College, with many teachers and students alike being infected. I was even infected with it thanks to one of my professors posting an assignment description document that had it. I was running AVG 9.0 at the time, and it was flagged many a time over. I think there were like six or so instances. My memory may be flaky, as my laptop has undergone many reformats since then, but what I do remember is trying to ignore AVG's warning, due to the fact that AVG has given me many false positives when I used it. The message Word gave me was that the document couldn't be opened because it wasn't available. But the strange part of that is that AVG had not removed anything from the file. I can think of two reasons why the file wouldn't run with the virus in it. Tell me which, if either, is correct. One is that Microsoft has since changed the macro format from 2003 and earlier versions of Word simply due to the many viruses that once existed for it, or two, that message was a very convoluted way of telling me that Windows 7 no longer supports Virtual device Drivers (*.vxd) as I was able to open the file after it had been cleaned up by Eset NOD32. Any knowledge you folks have would be very interesting, as I have always been curious about the very odd weekend of February 12, 2010. Now don't get me ... Read more

A:random curiosity about MS Word macro viruses and why (thank the Lord), they don't work in Word 2007/2010

I don't know the particulars of the macro virus you mention, but with Microsoft Office 2003, a significant change was implemented that effectively stopped the propagation of macro viruses.

Prior to Office 2003, macros were enabled by default, and opening a document with macros and auto-execute meant the macros were automatically executed (and thus the virus could infect and propagate).

With Office 2003, macro security was introduced. With a Microsoft Office 2003 default install, macros need to be signed with a certificate issued by a trusted root CA. Macros that are not signed will not be executed. Users have to explicitly lower the macro security level for unsigned macros to execute. Almost all macro viruses were unsigned.

I am assuming that pubic is not a word you would use in correspondence- in which case you could use "AutoCorrect" to correct.

Tools> Autocorrect--- then give the word you don't want used and the substitute word you do want used.

If there is a time you need to use that word, you can turn off AutoCorrect when the document is finished and manually make the correction before sending it out.

I have an old version of Word (2000), so I am presuming that MS has not chaned the name of this feature.

When I send some friends a password protected word document created in Word 2010 they can't open it using word 2007 which is compatible with docx by using the correct password. I have no choice but to send as a Word doc instead of docx so they can open it.

Word 2007 User 1: Word launches no password box no error messages just the blue screen.

Word 2007 User 2: Gets the error message: ?Word cannot open this file . The encryption type used is not available. Contact the author of the file. More encryption types are available in the High Encryption Pack.?

Therefore I suspect some kind of encryption pack must be installed. I believe the user 1 has XP and user 2 has Win 2000 pro. are using XP. Do you know where these encryption packs are available? The other possibility might be for me to reduce the encription level when I create a password protected docx but I have no idea how to do that.

Is there a solution to this problem?

I have installed MS Office Home and Student 2007 on my Dell Inspiron 1720 running Vista Home Premium. Previously I used MS Works that came pre-installed any e-mail with a Word attachment just opened when I clicked it.
Now when I get e-mails with any Word attachments I am unable to open the attachments without first saving them to the desk top, then opening Word 2007, then opening the document from the Word 2007 menu.
Similarly with all my old documents I have to go through the same long winded procedure to open them
Is there a simple way to cure this??. I'm not a tech whizz but if the cure is simple I can give it a go

2. one of field in my forms is a date field and i would like to see a small calendar to pop-up when the user click on that field ? (the effect will be similar to outlook calendar one. when user click the start date, a small calendar will pop-up)

many thanks

 

A:Help : Questions about creating forms in MS Words 2003

Hi

1) You can use the OnClick event of those checkboxes, so that when a user clicks a checkbox, a macro clears the other checkboxes. But this is needlessly complicated. Use optionbuttons instead. Use frames to create optionbutton groups

2) Use the Enter or DuobleClick event of the textbox to show the calendar popup. I'm not sure about the actual object or ActiveX control to use...
See the attached document for examples and code.

I have a folder of documents created on Word perfect X4 that I need to convert to Word 2003. I have Word 2007 but have found that some with older Word versions (before docx) have trouble opening them.

I tried the Word batch conversion utility in the program but the docs came out garbled. This would save me a lot of time.

thanks!
 

A:Need to batch convert Word perfect X4 docs to Word 2003

It is not the conversion that is the problem, you need to make sure that Word 2007 is set to Save As "Word 97-2003" documents to be the default.

Because I do teaching for people who have both versions (2007 & 2010) of Word, I have to keep both on my computer. How do I get .doc and .docx to associate with Word 2010?

Because I work mostly in 2010, I want to default to opening with 2010 but I can't do it. When I do try to correct the association (through the Control Panel) it WON'T associate with 2010. I go to the winword.exe in the correct folder for 2010 and click on it but it just stays the same, still associated with winword.exe in the 2007 folder.

FileTypesManager is pretty good in cases like this one.

Download this free application, run it, look for docx. Hightlight it and press F2. In a new window delete anything in the User Choice field. Close that window and find Open coomand for docx in main Window. Make sure that command-line leads to Office14. Repeat for doc.

I am converting a large website of Microsoft Word files to TeX files and have written several useful Word macros to automate this process. When I converted from Word 2007 to Word 2010, the macros I wrote disappeared (a lot of supplied macros do appear). They don't appear even when I open a doc file where they have already been used in that file under Word 2007. It didn't occur to me to save the macros elsewhere, and apparently installing Word 2010 destroyed them.

Where can I find them?

I normally use Word 2003 for documents, although I use Outlook 2010. This morning I opened a Word 2010 document and after quite a while of some sort of an installation, I was able to open the Word 2010 document. I did not think too much of it, except that later I was sending an e-mail and attached a Word 2003 document and when I went to check it (i.e. open it up) it opened in Word 2010. How do I disable Word 2010 as my default program to open Word documents. I do not want to uninstall the program, but at this point I am not ready to learn how to use Word 2010.

My user has spent years building her Auto-Text feature within Word 2003 to the point it is now, but her company just bought her a new Windows 7 Pro machine with Office 2010 installed. She asked that I migrate her Auto-Text data to Word 2010. After researching on google.com I found that this data is stored in a Normal.dot file and this file needs to be migrated to (in Windows 7)
C:\Users\<User Name>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Office.

Having done this, I now find the Normal.dot file I placed there in this location, as well as a new Normal.dot file that Word 2010 has created, but the two aren't merging. I see the new file has macros enabled... Does anyone have any ideas on how to merge these files into one file useable by Word 2010?

Thanks,
S~

A:Help with migrating a Word 2003 file to Word 2010

Normal.dot is the global template for Microsoft Word and is stored in different locations on the system based on the version of Windows and Word.

You dont want to merge them you want to backup the existing normal.dot file to something like normal.old.
Then replace the file in the correct location, which I cant research for you right now.

The bad thing about doing things like this is that if normal.dot gets corrupted, all the work put in to this is lost!

I have a Lenovo laptop which my husband purchased for my daughter. It came with the Vista bundle and recently he downloaded Microsoft Office Suite 2003. The laptop is set up with different users, specifically my husband as the administrator, myself with administrative authority, and my daughter with no privileges. I work as a medical transcriptionist and am planning on using the laptop when I go on trips. I downloaded Nuance MedRemote Webtop. This program has 3 components: one component with the patient demographic information, an audio player to listen to the digital voice recordings, and then a Word program. It can work with Word 2000, 2003, or 2007. I have MedRemote loaded on my main computer with Word 2000 on an XP platform and it works fine. On the laptop, however, the MedRemote cannot find the Word program. It gives me an error "Word not available." However, I do have Word 2003 and it works fine. I have run the detect and repair option on Word 2003 in the hopes that this would help, but it did not. It may be that MedRemote is not finding the "normal.dot" page. Can anyone help with this? I really appreciate it!

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.

Hi all.

I have an application which inserts data from an oracle database into
bookmarks in word docs. Recently I have added various formula onto the
documents which perform calculations and formatting on the data in the
bookmarks.

My problem is that when the application is use in conjunction with Word 2003
the formula fields are updated and show the correct data when the document is
opened - in Word XP the formula fields show zeros and do not show the corrcet
data until I manually update the field.

Is this new functionality in Word 2003? Or is it a setting that is not
switched on in Word XP? I have duplicated exactly (as far as I can) settings
between both versions but to no avail.

Ta!

Hello...

I am trying to create a form that people fill in and then the data is transferred into a new document created from a template. The Form now opens when the template is open (thank you XL Guru) but I cannot seem to get the data to transfer...

I have created a 'textform field option' in a cell in word which I have called 'Price' in the 'Bookmark:' section.

I have then entered the following code into the userform module (my user form is called userform1):

Private Sub btnUserOK_Click()

End Sub

Private Sub TextBoxPrice_Change()
vprice = UserForm1.TextBoxPrice.Text
ActiveDocument.FormFields("bkprice").Result = vprice
End Sub

I am quite new to all this so you will have to excuse my ignorance if this is complete garbage...

Do I have to enter the code into the 'Userform1 module' or the 'thisdocument' module.

I then have an OK button which I want to click and the data then be entered into the appropriate 'textform field option'

Any help will be greatly appreciated..

Thank you
 

A:Forms and Word

Word VBA is NOT my thing (dunno where Annie is lately).

Whatever button (AKA control) on the form you want to "do stuff", rightclick it & "View Code" and shove it in there.

eg:

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
vprice = UserForm1.TextBoxPrice.Text
ActiveDocument.FormFields("bkprice").Result = vprice
UserForm1.Hide
End Sub

Help!!!! I have created a form in Word 97. It basically lists the information I need and there is a text box to the side for the response to the question. All I need to know is how do I fix this form so the end user can put a response in the text box and tab to the next box. I feel like an idiot, I can not figure out how this works. I could do it in excel however this is for work and has to be in Word. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!!!!!!!!!!

I believe all you need to do is just "protect" the form. Click the padlock on your Form toolbar. Then you can tab from field to field.

Works for me but I'm sure Dreamboat or someone else will respond if this is not correct.

I found a bunch of old 3 1/2" floppy dislettes I thought I'd lost. The docs on the diskettes were written with Office/Word 97. Now have Vista, Office 2007. Word 2007 will NOT read old Word docs. Says "You have attempted to open a file that was created in an earlierl version of Microsoft Office. This file type is blocked from opening in this Word version by your registry settings." Then it proceeds to send me to an internet site that explains in great detail how much danger there is in attempting to change the registry settings. Have installed Office 97 on new computer and instructed the files to open in Word 97, but always defaults to 2007 and still won't read. I get the same message as above. I would love to have these docs back. Anybody know a workaround? I'll happily convert them to 2007 if necessary.
