I'm having a strange problem with Microsoft Word 2003 SP3.

It only happens on new docs. I'm a writer and when I open ongoing projects in Word everything is fine, but when I open a new doc. my Page Setup doesn't work. If I set it to have 1" of space top, bottom and sides, it doesn't work on the top. My first line starts at the very top of the page.

Also, the ruler up the left side should be dark where that top inch of space should be, but it isn't because it's not working. I discovered a temporary fix in Page Setup by setting the top space to be 2" and the sides and bottom to be 1". However, even doing this I don't get the dark inch or so at the top of my left margin ruler.

I did a repair in ADD Remove Programs but it didn't change anything. It might be a corruption in Word because I have the same Office 2003, SP3 on my laptop and I've compared all the settings on both computers and they appear to be identical.

Has anyone here run into this problem, and do you think uninstalling and reinstalling Office might solve the problem?

Thanks in advance.

Hi, I've been having this problem with MS Word 2003 for a little bit.

What happens is, I open the application, and the Word box pops up like it's about to open like it should, but then it takes forever to open, maybe over 10 minutes or so, unless I just end the process like I usually do since it takes so long.

The only thing I've noticed different about anything when I open it is, Navw32.exe starts running, and if i end that, an alert window opens that says "The document C:\Documents and Settings\David Solis\Application Data\Microsoft\Normal\ is still infected. Do you want to delete this file?". I'll click no, and Word opens.

Any idea what any of this is, why it's doing it, and how to stop it? Thanks!

A:Microsoft Office Word 2003 problem

I have seen several suggestions for dealing with this problem, some work for some people, others don't and
some of them are potentially destructive, in my opinion, therefore I do not propose to supply any links.

However, I will tell you that I had the same problem recently. I run Office 2003 Professional Edition and
downloaded the Office 2007 trial. It was not for me and I uninstalled it. My problems then started,
with these 'Please wait while Windows configures' messages.

I tried all the usual 'repair' methods, but the only thing which fixed the problem was a complete
uninstall and reinstall of Office 2003. That would be my only suggestion and in addition,
I left the setup files on my hard disk, when asked, because there are some features that are not
immediately installed by the program, even on a full install and it saves digging out the CD/DVD
whenever you come across these features. (Don't remember too clearly which ones, I think it
may have been in connection with Publisher).

I appreciate this may be stating the obvious. If you can find an easier method, which you trust,
good luck.

btw, I am assuming that your computer is virus, adware, malware and spyware free.
You should run something like Malwarebytes and SuperAntiSpware if you haven't
checked recently; presumably you have a realtime antivirus scanner.

Hello there.

Microsoft office 2003 problem.
When starting microsoft word on vista ulitmate, there seems to be a problem

This will automatically shut down, saying there was a problem and is shutting down...
The other programs seem fine, Excel, powerpoint, etc.

I havent a clue what this could be, has anyone else had this problem.
In the top right corner of microsoft word it will say "Finalizing Installation" and then after you type a couple of sentences it will shut down on its own..

This is for a friend of mine, who had microsoft office put on when she bought the laptop of a friend, though she does not have the disk, so i wondered if this is an installation problem.

Would this be some sort of copy of microsoft office 2003, that was put on for her
She has only found this out now as her son needs to use word for school

A:Microsoft office 2003/ Problem with Word

I assume that you're opening up Word from the Start menu here...

Open up the Start Menu and go to Word. Right-click on it. Open up its Compatability tab which is the third tab.

2003 is an XP product. Therefore, Word (and Excel and Access if they're 2003 versions) should be run in compatibility mode for "Windows XP (Service Pack 2)."

If this is not so, check the box and select Windows XP from the list to make it so amd OK the box to close it.

See if it runs now.

Just recently something has changed with my Microsoft Office Word 2003 app.

I'm a writer and I have always been able to drag my pages that I have written today to a folder in My Documents and the same file would stay on my desktop for immediate access later. I realize other may not work this way but it is how I prefer to work as it has become my habit

When I try to drag and drop it now, it drops into the My Documents folder but it no longer remains on the desktop.

Now, in conjunction with this problem, I have another new problem, which is that when I write a page of text in Word and save it to a My Documents folder it doesn't go there. Also when I save a picture to My Pictures as I've always done it won't be there when I look for it. Something is preventing me from saving things and I haven't a clue what it is. I have to open the My Documents folder and drag the Word text page into it. It's the only way I can save stuff for some reason.

Can someone please tell me how I can fix this problem?

Thank you in advance.

I have created in Microsoft Word 2003 on an XP OS some lengthy documents. I created them using a view setting of 150%.

I sent them to my employer, who is using Windows 98 and Microsoft Word 97. My boss opened them with his system and they displayed on the screen at a view of 200%. He wants me to send him Word documents that he can open from the CD-R that I send that will automatically display at 100% view on the screen so that he does not have to set the view for each document as it displays.

So what is the answer.

Is there a way that I can save my created documents so that when my boss gets them on a CD-R that they will open on his system at a view setting of 100%.

Is there also a way that his system can be set to default to 100% in reading from the CD-R.

My boss does not want to copy the documents to the system hard disk from my sent CD-R, preferring to read and copy directly from the CD-R that I send, so that the original documents will not accidentally be changed.

Any help would be appreciated.

Good afternoon people,

Firstly, I would like to say hello to everyone who've helped me in the past with my Access help. It's been a long absence with study commitments and such, but as is the purpose of this group, I would like to ask for some tech help:

The situation: Microsoft Word (as part of Office 2003 Professional Edition) frequently closes without user notification on my dad's laptop (Windows Vista Basic). It's recently started, and it interrupts his work. He says that the issue occurs when he minimises documents, but he didn't indicate a frequency of this occurrence. He also told me that once he successfully saves a document and closes Word, he then encounters issues when opening said document; it says that the file has been "corrupted" (I can't remember exactly what the dialog box says), and that the data can be recovered, or to proceed with opening the document. Data recovery doesn't work, and when he proceeds to open the document, Word returns "Program not responding" and "Critical error caused by the program" and other prompts of this nature, which then forces the program to quit.

I am aware that a similar problem is in the Microsoft Knowledge Base for Word 2003, but was last revised in 2004 (so covered only xp and 2000), and am not certain if this issue is the same for Windows Vista. It related to the "Handwriting Recognition" program.

After completing setup and customization of Word 2003, I discover that my new default blank page ignores the margins I've set. The cursor blinks right along the top edge of the page even though I've set a top margin of 1.25". Somehow, that's gotten into the basic configuration of Word as there's nothing I can do to get any blank page to load properly. I even tried uninstalling and reinstalling Word, then copying from my other PC my Word 2000 (which is how I originally set up Word 2003), and it still opens any default document with the cursor hugging the top edge of the page. I also tried opening a previously-created Word document with the same margin settings, erasing the content to make it a blank sheet, and using it to create a new and a new The process of converting it to .dot format brings back the edge-hugging cursor which did not happen in the document before saving.

Hi. I have a 250 page document that was set up with standard 1 inch margins on each side. not sure why, but when I opened the document to day, word is adding an extra inch of white space to the right side. I've checked page setup and the margins are still at one inch (and the ruler at the top of the display shows that as well.

Any ideas what may have gone wrong or how to fix this? When I print something out, the print is scrunched down to a smaller size to fit in the smaller space.

NOTE - if I open a new document, things display correctly (treating page as if standard 8.5 inches wide). If I cut and paste my document into this new one, however, I'm again faced with the pseudo 9.5 inch page.


A:Solved: Word 2003 Problem with Margins

OK - finally figured it out. I must have clicked on Markup at some point which adds the width to the page so comments can appear in the extra wide margin - I didn't have any comments so that hadn't occurred to me as a possibility. Clicking Markup for a second time (under the View menu I believe) collapsed the page back down to normal proportions. Figured I'd post this instead of just deleting the thread in case any one else had a similar problem.

Hi, hopefully someone can help me with this somewhat minor, but annoying problem with Microsoft Word 2003.

Any time I open a new document in Word 2003, the cursor is at the very top of the page. It's not at the vertical position that the page setup window says it should be at (1"), but it is in the proper left margin position.

To solve it, I have to go to the menu: Format>>Borders and Shading. I click on the Page Border tab (which is defaulted to "None") and click OK. At that point the cursor moves to the correct position.

I have to do this every time I open a new document to get the cursor in the right starting point for the doc. I assume this has something to do with the template, but I can't figure out how to fix it. I've tried editing and saving with the cursor in the correct position, but that hasn't solved the problem.

For the past couple of days whenever I am trying to open MS Word the screen freezes and the only way to come out of this situation is through "Windows Task Manager" => Processes=>Winword=>End Process.

When the Word freezes at that time CPU Usage is shown 100%

Then i have to run some Winsock utility tool then only I could open Word normally. But again after couple of times this whole thing repeats.

I am sure my system is infected with some malware or virus that my Norton Internet Security could not detect. I even tried with Malwarebytes but this did not show any infected file. As I had no other choice left I am posting this problem over here.

I already followed the initial steps mentioned in this forum, and my dds.txt is as follows and Ark.txt and Attach.txt are in the form of attachment.

Thanks in advance for all your time and help.

Recently I must have done something inadvertently in my outlook as I can no longer open links in any email messages. When I try, the following message appears: "This operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on your computer. Please contact your system administrator." By the way, it is a home computer and I am the system administrator. I called Bell Support as I thought maybe it had something to do with the new McFee Virus Protection that Bell switched to but the issue appears to be related to something I may have done in outlook myself. The tech could not locate the problem. Any ideas? In order to open link I have to cut and paste it into google or such but with some links, this does not work. Any help on this issue would be most appreciated. I am not particularly tech savvy so please keep this in mind when you respond. Thank you.

I'm having trouble with Outlook and receiving one email over and over again. I use Outlook to check my Yahoo mail and I was sent an email from an AOL address.

With Word, I have words that i use that are correct, but it keeps underlining them in red and i know you can add the words into its dictionary so that this doesn't happen for those words anymore. I forgot on where you do it, i know i should know as i've been using word since Office '95. I just always click on ignore. Someone did tell me once, but i need my memory refreshed.

A:Microsoft Word 2003 - Need Help

The easiest way I found was to run spell check and when the pop up dialog box appears on words not in Word's dictionary( red squigglies) , there is an option to ignore, change, etc., or "add to dictionary". It is there that I make a decision whether to add or not, and I add it to the general dictionary. Check the HELP to determine how to set up a *special* dictionary, if that is what you want to do, just for these words.
Hope this helps.

im wondering, how do i square root a number in MW?
does it have to do something with like Insert>Object>Equations ?? or something like that? because if it is im having that problem =/

can anyone help? thanks

A:Microsoft Word 2003

Hum.. You want to insert a mathematical expression in your text? Or do you want Word to calculate a quare root for you?

In case of the former, you have to install an Office component called Equation Editor.
If you have that, then you can do Insert->Object->Create New->Microsoft Equation

Otherwise, you can always draw the formula in Paint and then copy-paste to Word

Hi Roisen,

You're seeing the "formatting marks". Depending on your version of word, there should be a button visible on your toolbar with this symbol: ∂ That button toggles the formatting marks off and on.

You might also try the keyboard shortcut of ctrl+shift+* (asterisk)

In Word 2007, the formatting marks button is on the Home tab in the Paragraph group. If that doesn't work, click the "Office" button -> "Word Options" ->"Display" and clear the check-boxes of marks you don't want visible.

Hi there!
For years I have used a keyboard shortcut for my numbered lists for "Format Number Default". I had it set so that my numbered lists were flush with the left margin rather than indented. For the past few weeks, when I use the shortcut, the list indents and I have to click Format, Numbering, and then the template I want to use. I have tried resetting the keyboard shortcut in the, but this did not work. Is there a way to change the numbered list defaut? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance!

A:Solved: Word 2003 default numbered list problem

Only way I know is highlight text, click on the numbering tab and then while text is still highlighted decrease indent
Or if text not inserted yet enter 1. Then write the first numbered lot of text press enter, when 2. Comes up, highlight up to next line where the 2. Has been auto placed, and click on decrease indent, the rest of the text will go to the left margin

Might be an easier way I don&#8217;t know but that is how I do it if I want to change the location of the margin of the numbers, its still quick,

I have never been one to use keyboard short cuts as you get used to them, then the keys wear out and dont work, or you have to reformat and reset everything again till and you have to look up again how you set it in the first place and then because you have used the keyboard short cut so long you can not remember in the program where to go as to how you do it and you have to know till you sort out the keyboard again.

However I now have 2003 and when I open a new document, they are completly seperate windows and use two buttons on the task bar. I liked having all my documents open in the same program that i can control with the x in the corner. This is hard to explain so i Hope you know what i am talking about. I know it is possible to change this setting because ive used antoher computer where it has done this. I just can not find it in the options or anywhere I have looked. Any help would be appriciated.

I have never had a problem with Microsoft Word until now. I can use Word fine on my computer. In the past week or so, however, when I send Microsoft Word documents to people, sometimes they say they can open them and sometimes they say they can’t open them. It depends on the person.On some of my e-mail clients (I have multiple e-mail accounts), I can open the files I send myself (i.e. I will send an e-mail to my multiple e-mail accounts and I will attach Word documents to that e-mail. On some clients I can open the files I send myself, and others I can’t...I did a check disk /r (checkdisk repair) on March 9 and it fixed the problem. I could send Word documents and everyone could download them and I could send Word documents to myself and download them via AOL Mail, Yahoo, and everything. And then the problem came back again.When I click on the file in the mail client that doesn’t read the documents correctly, the attachment comes up as saying that the mail client interprets the .doc file as being related to Notepad (specifically listing Notepad as the program it wants to open the file in), not Word. Then when I try to open it (either straight from the e-mail or after downloading the file back to my hard drive), it tries to open in word and gives me the converter message.When it was working for a little while on March 9, the way I knew a Word document would work correctly even before trying to open a file is that Mail would list it as being a Word doc...

A:Microsoft Word 2003 nightmare

I haven't read nor absorbed your entire message.
There's one thing that comes to mind immediately - your clients may have slightly different Word. If they have 2007, you need to send them the 2007 version or have them open as previous version (if possible).

Long ago there was an office update which added some sort of converter to my Office2003. Perhaps if you save as some other than 2003 .doc it would work. That update permitted me to open a document or two someone sent me.

Edited: what is one supposed to do with that megaupload site? All I see to pay lots of UK currency. I'm willing to try to open your
files in my Office2003 but not under those conditions.

A:Solved: Microsoft word font problem

You can try searching your computer and deleting/renaming the file which is the template that Word uses for all documents. To find the location of your template file click TOOLS >> OPTIONS >> FILE LOCATIONS and then select User Templates in your list of file types and click the modify button and the path to your template file will be displayed.

It's usually something like:

C:\Documents and Settings\YOUR_USERNAME\Application Data\Microsoft\Templates

After finding this file in your computer, rename it to something else like Normal.Old or delete it completely and then open Word. Word should automatically recreate the template for you. If it works properly after renaming the template file, you can delete the old one since a new one will have already been created.

NOTE: may be hidden so you may have to go into your Window Explorer options and change them to show hidden files and folders before doing your search.

I am using a computer in the office. There are two of us that use this computer, myself and my boss. Neither of us are really computer saavy, we understand the basics and thats about it. We only work in the office on rainy days, any other time we are outside. But we have been using Microsoft word 2003 for a few years and have never had a problem loading it until now. It takes up to 5 minutes sometimes to load the program. We are using Windows XP 2002 edition, service pack 3. The computer is a dell Dimension DM051 Intel (R) Pentium (R) D CPU 2.8GHz, 2.79 GHZ, 1.00GB of RAM. All our reports are in Word format and every time we open any report it is taking up to 5 min. to load. Is this a virus, spyware? I dont' think its the computer itself because we've never had a problem with this or any other program before. Any support or suggestions would greatly be appreciated thank you.

Whenever I try to open a saved Word document (or even a PowerPoint), the file doesn't open and I get the following message:

"The file ____ is not available.
You may be encountering this message because an anti-virus program is not allowing the file to open. This can be caused by one of two conditions. Either the anti-virus program needs to be updated (due to a compability problem with this application) or there is a virus in the file but the anti-virus program cannot properly remove or process the virus it has found....etc."

Then when I close the document, I get the following message:
"The file Normal already exists. Do you want to replace the existing file?"

I've tried deleting the file. I've restarted my computer, deleted "" through my computer's search engine, and then opening word. I've tried renaming the file to "normal.old", and followed the instructions after that like I found on a website.
Also, I went to Tools > Macro > Macros and gone to the "Macros in" list, clicked "All active templates and documents", but there weren't any macros listed there.

I tried using the Macro Organizer, and there weren't any macros listed there either.

Many websites suggested that I open the file through MS word and then hold shift before opening it. When I try to open a file, it just says that it isn't available.

Oh, and I'm running on Windows Vista.

I currently have about 30,000 lines of macros. Occasionally the people I work for want an updated list of all the macros in that file (most are user specific) so that they know what macros they have and if then need a different one or edit a current one.

What have been looking for is a way to print the names of the macros only, and not the entire marco file/code.

the first macro looks something like this..

Sub hinj()
' hinj Macro
' Dr. H's Corticosteroid Injection
Selection.TypeText Text:= _
Selection.TypeText Text:= _
"The patient's * was injected with."
end sub

(cut short for brevity)

then the next macro, and so on and so forth.

What i have been looking for is a way to print a list of the macros but not the macro themselves.

IE.. I wold like it to print out...

hinj Macro
Dr. H's Corticosteroid Injection

Dr. H's Hyalgan Macro

Dr. H's Supartz Macro.

so on and so forth with all 375 macros printed.

Is there a way to do this? I would be most appreciative for any clue as to how to do this.

I've been using word 2003 in windows 7 for a couple years now and it always worked fine. Recently, I have been experiencing this issue where if I click on "save as" to save the file and then double click the C drive it just sits there and freezes for a couple minutes (and I get the "not responding" box with everything whited out). I tried to uninstall and reinstall microsoft office 2003 and the problem is still there. I don't know why it's doing that when I click on the C drive because I can save the file to the desktop or under documents right away without any freezing and then move the file -- but this is a hassle. How can I fix this problem?

Please help!

I've a little problem, when I start Word 2003, it takes around 20 seconds and then I can use it.
Some times there is even a force close. (then the word 2003 freezes)

And if I type: winword /a in Start it starts up directly.
So now my default program for .doc files = winword. (which is slow)
I can't change it to /a.
(/a is add-ins??? so winword /a = word without add-ins?)
Can i disable those add-ins?

My Pc specs = the 2nd in my computer specification

I am trying to create a letter template that has drop downs in it so that a user can choose which paragraph to put in the letter.

I can create one by using the Drop down form field but it will only let me put a certain amount of text in there.

Is there a way I can do this?

I dont want to do auto texts just the drop down.

Any help would be really really appreciated.

Thanks very much.
