Q: Microsoft Works Word Processor 8.5

Is there any way to alphabetize a list in Microsoft Works Word Processor 8.5?

A: Microsoft Works Word Processor 8.5

You need to add the items to a table and then you should be able to do the sorting.

Look in the "Help" and search on 'sort' and the last entry is a helper.

Hi Everyone,I did a quick search of the forums and didn't come up with anything similar to the problem I've just started having with MS Word.I'll be working on a document and saving my work every so often. Then all of a sudden Windows starts telling me that it can't save the file. I goofed and didn't think quick enough to get a screen shot of that message.However, I was able to copy past everything, from the document I was trying to save, to a new document, which is what I did as I had already had the same thing happen to me a couple of times before. Then when I clicked 'Yes' I get "This" message.OK, so then I click 'No on exit to close the document and got "This" asking if I wanted to save the changes to the document. Then I Just click No because that's the only option that will let me close that application. Then when I try to open it again I get "This" dreaded message.Have any of you guys ever run into anything like this before?It doesn't seem to matter if the document only has ten pages or if it has one hundred ten pages. Nor does it seem to matter if I have a lot of images in it or none at allI am at a loss as to what to do to prevent this form happening in the future. At least I have a work around that I can use so as not to lose my entire document..., but this is still just a bit nerve wercking.Thanks for any help or advice guys.Wendy

I bought my computer in 2008ish, maybe 2009, and it came with Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit. It also came with pre-installed software, and of those pre-installed software included Microsoft Works Word Processor. I upgraded to Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit last week, and I have been painstakingly installing my programs back after I messed up the installation. First, I installed Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit, then I realized I put in the wrong disc so I then put in Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit, then I upgraded to Ultimate 64-bit. All my programs got messed up in the process and I basically have a clean install of Windows 7 with a Windows.old folder containing my programs in a folder, which all need to be re-installed. I can see my Microsoft Works Word Processor, but it won't let me run the installation on it. I tried running it in compatibility modes for every available option, but nothing works. I also ran it as an administrator. How can I legally re-install these programs I purchased? I have tons and tons of .wps files that I want to be able to open with a program I purchased with my computer. Yes, I have heard of OpenOffice and it does not support .wps files. I do have Microsoft Office Professional 2013 installed, but it can't seem to open .wps files (unless I'm wrong).

A:Microsoft Works Word Processor

Microsoft Office 2013 is capable of opening Works 6-9 documents in a Compatibility mode.

To do that in Word 2013 you need to go File - Open - Computer - Browse.
In Open window you have to select a filter:
All files (*.*) or Works 6 - 9 Document (*.wps)

I am wanting to help my mom. She can never remember to save her documents using Word (thats all she will be comfortable with) in rich text format or in .doc. The program first choice in the "save as" menu is .wps which is unreadable to many she has to submit documents to and also takes up much more space. Is there any way I can change the defaults or just make the .rtf the first choice in her choices of saving files?

Um, sorry to bother you all with this but I need a bit of help with a works word file. The program does not want to open saying that it is in use, format not supported or its corrupt. I've tried re-installing works to no effect and I doubt its corrupt since I can see the text inside with a little space like a square between each character. Unfortunatly, its image heavy since its college work.

I really need to get this open so I can print it and hand it in, any ideas?

Hello, I'm not very good with computers so bare with me please

I am a university student and today when I went to open my class notes in Microsoft Works Word Processor I found nothing but a blank page. The file was still there, with the exact same name, but all the text was gone. The document contained 15 hours of lecture notes needed for an exam in 6 days, so I'm naturally pretty anxious for help. I have since turned my computer on and off. I have tried converting the file to rich text format and back, to no avail. The size of the document says a mere 16 kb now as well.

I opened the seemingly blank document with notepad, and found a bunch of jargon along with 2 interesting clues. One was very small pieces of my class notes here and there, in between the coding and jargon. The second was towards the end of the coding, where it said various random things about my HP printer. I did perform a printer test today, and was wondering if that did anything to delete or corrupt my notes.

I performed a system reset back to 5 PM (the file appeared blank at 6 PM, when it said it was last modified). The file is still blank. I have also checked through the recycle bin, nothing. I've got Windows Vista, and my computer is a Gateway Notebook, 5 months old.

My system is Windows XP and I feel my computer user level is just basic. I have lost all the history in my Microsoft Works(7.0) Word Processor. (no clue how it got lost)When I go to My Documents I can see all the files from history but I cannot open any of them. When I try to open a file it directs me to buy Word Perfect(R) 11 software with an upgrade to Word Perfect 12 for $99.00. Should I buy the software? Is there a way to move the files back into the Word Processor history? Next to each file in My Documents it says WPEntrust Signed Document.
 

A:Microsoft Works Word Processor History

MS Works has nothing to do with Word Perfect! MS Works is related to MS Office. If you are looking for your documents, have you tried launching Works and going to File/Open to see what is there? Perhaps you had a trial version of Word Perfect in your computer, too. If you like the word processor in Works, perhaps you should upgrade to Word 2007 instead -- Word is a much larger, more diversified program than the abbreviated version in Works.

I reset the Microsoft Works Word Processor to default with a different font size. It worked fine. Then, while setting up a printing for envelopes, I tried to reset that as a default as well. Big mistake. Now when I open the word processor program it comes up as the envelope function and I cannot get the original page for letter writing back. Microsoft was no help when I accessed their web page (too far over my head in their explanations as well as being not too user-friendly for my level of understanding). Does anyone know how I can get it open the right way again? I use Window's Vista on an Acer Extensa 5620. Thanks.
 

A:Solved: Microsoft Works Word Processor

This only applies for the Works word processor, the common one in Works NOT spelled with a capital W, as in Word.

First, only do this with the Work word processor not going.
If you really only want one default word processing template in Works (and it sounds like you do), and if you have no other templates that you want (and it sounds like you don't) then you can just delete all templates in this folder:
C:\Users\<YourName>\AppData\Roaming\Template\
Then, just start up the word processor and see if it is fixed.

If that is not the case, just let me know and I will adjust and tell you what else you can do, instead.

Hi there guys.
Okay so here's the issue.
I have an HP Pavillion a813w that had Microsoft Works pre-installed on my computer.

Now, I just did a roll back, totally reformated my computer on April 10th to total factory settings once more, so my computer is relatively unbuggy, or so I thought.
However, when I was sent a document from a friend today via AIM, and I scanned it with my virus scanner, it was clean. It had me say yes, I agree to the EULA, and then as it was loading up, it just seemed to disappear, I couldn't open up the document, and I have tried rebooting, and restoring both and it would do nothing.

I'm wondering if there's a reason for this..

I'm trying to figure this out, first time I've ever had Works do this, before I reformated that is.

Also, there is a convertor software that allows conversion from .wps to .doc, but not all agencies who ask for your resume in .doc format will have this convertor software....and I heard that the convertor software also messes up the document...so there is no way around this.

My OS is Windows ME. I had saved several word processor documents to CD disc and was working on one. I closed it out, then tried to open it again and got the following prompt: "Works can't open M:\report.wps. The file may be used by another application, the file format may not be supported by any of the installed converters or may be corrupt". This happened to three other files on disc, but the last one is ok. Since I'm not a wizard at this stuff, is there anyway to get the files to open? If it has been corrupted, I'm probably screwed. If not, what can I do? The stuff on disc wasn't something I can duplicate from memory. I made the file with Adaptic CD Creator (which is also supposed to create regular CD-ROM type discs, but I've never been able to get it to do that). I tried the program's own "scan disc" to repair it, but it's a lot more limited than my computer's scan disc and it didn't seem to do much.

2. Files on CD-ROM cannot be changed unless you have a re-writable CD-ROM disk.
3. I would never suggest anyone even attempt to work directly from a CD-ROM, rewritable or not.
4. Copy files from CD-ROM to hard drive, then right-click in Windows explorer and remove the read-only under properties.

Ask in the Other Software forum about CD-writer software.

Hi All,

I have had a rash of Windows error messages saying that Windows couldn't open several of my .wps files and saying that they might be corrupt.

I don't want to give up on those documents just yet so I downloaded a Microsoft Office Word Viewer, the old one, to see if I could open them with it.

Then, following the installation instructions, I clicked on the wdviewer.exe installer and got yet another error message.

This one said; Windows Installer ! The system administrator has set policies to prevent this installation.

Now, as I am the only system administrator of my PC and I haven't set anything like that, that I can remember at least, I would like to know where to look to see the policies that I'm supposed to have set.

Is that something that I would have done through the Control Panel or through the tools settings in Firefox, and why would it only affect this one download?

I mean I download, install and run everything else that I want to on this thing, with no trouble, so why would that program be any different?

Thanks for any help.

Wendy

A:MS Works Word Processor

Don't know what's going with the installation of the Word viewer, but I will tell you about opening up .wps files:MS Works and MS Word (full version) can open up .wps files. You would either have had to save the Works file as a .doc file first, or convert the file using Word after the Works Converter was added to your Word program.Read this Microsoft KB article regarding this issue: How to open a Works document in WordMy students have come to me many times for assistance with something like this, and without the converter, you can't open it.

Sometimes I have been writing for quite some time only to realise that it is not appearing in the doc. This becomes very frustrating when one is writing a manuscript.

I hope someone can shed light on why this is happening and what I can do to stop it?

Thanks in anticipation.

I have just done a clean install of W7 Ultimate 64 bit on 2 different Desktops. One is a Fujitsu Siemens Esprimo 5905P the other originally an HP Pavillion which now has an Asrock Mobo. I have reinstalled all my programs--no problems there. I use MS Works 8 Word Processor. This worked fine on both DT's under XP. However, it now works only on the Fujitsu, but not on the HP. The problem is it doesn't find the Files in My Documents. With Word Processor open, when I try to open a Document, the My Documents window comes up, with the message No Files found---there is no list of Files shown---though all files are in place in My Docs Folder. They can all be opened by individual clicking in that Folder---they just don't appear in Word! I have repaired Word Processor---I have uninstalled it and reinstalled from original CD. I have even cleared My Docs Folder and reloaded all Files---makes no difference.
I don't like MS Office---so who can tell me how to get this to work--as it does in the other PC---and as it did on both machines under XP SP3!
I get no error messages of any kind.
Thanks, Robbie

This is probably a dumb question with a simple solution but, so far, I can't figure it out. I'm trying to write an outline for a research paper using Microsoft Works on my new Dell laptop with Windows Vista installed. Problem:
Every time I try to type a lower case letter (for sub-section of outline) as soon as I type a period or make a space, the small "a" immediately changes to a capital "A"(which I can only use under Roman numerals).
What am I doing wrong or how can I adjust this error?
Will appreciate any solutions. Thanks.

A:Problem with Works Word Processor

Ah, the joys of the intuitive Microsoft selection of programs... What you need to do is open up the program options for auto-correct and tell it to stop doing automatic capitalization. If you like this feature, you could type "A. " (with the space), select the "A" and then type "a", and then click after the space.

Does this freeze happen with other programs? If so, then perhaps the processor chip is getting too hot and everything will lock as you stated. If it's a desktop, make sure the fan on the processor is spinning and a wire is not touching it (causing the fan to not spin).

I've just been to see a machine which is running Works v7. The problem is that the word processor is unusable because it is going too slowly. It's "running" on WinXP and when I check the system performance I see that it (WksWp.exe) is using around 99% CPU time even though it's not actually doing anything. There is also the sound of much disk activity.

Is this a known "design feature" or is something going wrong elsewhere? I'm told it's been like this since the m/c was first bough a couple of months ago and no other application shows this behaviour.

My friend uses MS Works (version 8 or 8.5, I imagine, as her computer is a little over a year old) on a Vista operating system. When starting its word processor in whatever form, using a shortcut or from the Start menu, for example, the word processor fills part of the screen only. The maximise button has no effect. The bottom edge can be dragged to the bottom of the screen, but the side edges cannot be dragged left or right in the same way. Every attempt to obtain a full screen image has failed. This applies to the word processor only and has only recently occurred; the spreadsheet continues to open properly, for example.

I recently purchased an ASUS Windows 8.1 64 bit computer.  I transferred my Microsoft Works Version 8.0 word processor and spreadsheet files from my old computer onto the new computer.  I just purchased the Microsoft Office 2013 Home and Student Edition (64 bit version) from an online vendor and installed the software onto my new computer. 
 
I have no problems opening my Works spreadsheet files in Excel.  However, when I attempt to open a Works word processor file in Word, I get gibberish.  I did some research online and found out that there is a Microsoft tool called Works 6-9 Converter which allows one to open Works files in Word.
 
I downloaded the Works 6-9 Converter tool from the Microsoft Support website and installed it on my PC.  However, when I subsequently attempted to open a Works word processor file in Word, a dialog box appeared with the error message "Word cannot start the converter Wks9Pxy.cnv" and the file did not open properly (i.e., I got gibberish).
 
I did a little more research online and found out that uninstalling the Works 6-9 Converter, then downloading and installing the Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Package, and finally reinstalling the Works 6-9 Converter may correct this problem.  I followed these steps, but unfortunately when I attempt to open a Works word processor file in Word, I get the same error message and the file does not open properly. ...

I've been using Microsoft Works 8.5 Word Processor for a few years on Windows 7 and it works fine. However, I was dismayed to find out that I cannot do a bulk search for text across multiple files. It turns out that Works embeds nulls between each character. So CAT in a file is C(null)A(null)T(null). There is no way with any search program that I know of to search all the .wps files in a folder that have the word "CAT" in them.

I *could* keep two copies of every file (one in .txt format), but my goodness what a pain.

So I'm looking for:

a) A program that will do bulk searches of .wps files. (embedded nulls are tricky, you really can't type them in)
or
b) Another program that is similar to Works (Office is NOT similar to Works, it's a pain in the neck to use).

Any help would be *great* appreciated!

Thanks!

Donald

A:Works word processor files not searchable because of embedded nulls

Hi Donalds, welcome to the Seven Forums.

It's years since I have even seen Microsoft Works, I am afraid I am not able to tell you how to search files with those embedded nulls.

However, if I recall it correctly Works can also save using the Rich Text Format (.rtf). If so, you could try if the document content is searchable when saved as .rtf. If so, you would not only solve your issue but also make your documents more interchangeable, as the .rtf files can be shared, opened and edited with almost every modern word processor.

Trying to remember the various features of Microsoft Works word processor, I think I'm not too much wrong by recommending you the Windows 7 native WordPad word processor, to use it instead of Works. WordPad has all features needed for composing, editing and formatting complex documents. It also handles embedded images very nicely.

I have Windows XP Pro, SP2 and version 8.0 of Works.

Now when I start up the Works word processor and I use the "Open" function, it always opens in "My Documents". When I use "WordPad" it opens in the last folder used. Is there a way to make the Works word processor act like this? If not, is there a way to change the default opening folder? (Also is there a way to change the default location where a file is saved?)

Also, since this is closely related, I'll ask this: When you use the Open function in the Works wp, you get the "Open" dialog box. At the bottom there is a drop down box called, "Files of type". It always opens with "Works Document (*.wps). If you click the drop down box, one of the options is "All Files (*.*). Is there a way to change it to this?

Hi Everybody,

I have been using the word processor in Microsoft ? Works Version 6.0 to do a lot of writing and I have just had a devastating experience with it.

When I had first started using it I had learned early on that I had better be making a habit of saving my work regularly or the Microsoft Grinch would jump up and tell me how sorry it was that Microsoft Works had encountered a problem and wanted to go home without letting me save my work.

So saving my work after ever third of forth paragraph has become a habit with me, and that's what makes what happened to me today even more puzzling.

I'm running Windows XP home edition with SP2. I had seven or eight IE browsers open doing some research and trying to get some photos downloaded for the project that I'm working on.

SpyBot started telling me about a change that had been made saying "User-Specific browser toolbar value deleted" and something about BarLayout. At the same time whichever IE I was using when that message had popped up would quit letting me copy\paste.

But then when I would close that browser I would get another SpyBot alert saying that that same value had been added. The only action that SpyBot would accept in either case was for me to press the OK key otherwise it just kept spitting back that same alert.

At the same time I was using Yahoo messenger to chat with a friend and things just started going haywire. So I hurried up to save and close everything that I had open and clicked t... Read more

A:Trouble With Microsoft Word Processor

I am not a great authority, but it looks like you may have prematurely closed the Works document especially if you were downloading something that you were incorporating into the text. The garbage at the bottom of the recovered document seems to be formatting information. I doubt that a good saved copy now exists, especially if you have saved over any prior file name.
When I am working on a document that is of much length, I generally do a manual save at a good place to stop (chapter one, for example) and then continue, but rename the file and perform periodic saves to the new file. That way, if one of these doesn't "take" I can at least retrieve a large portion of the text by returning to the saved document (chapter one). Later, I can always merge the major saved portions.
Cheers,
John

Hello, I'm not very good with computers so bare with me please :).

I am a university student and today when I went to open my class notes in Microsoft Works Word Processor I found nothing but a blank page. The file was still there, with the exact same name, but all the text was gone. The document contained 15 hours of lecture notes needed for an exam in 6 days, so I'm naturally pretty anxious for help. I have since turned my computer on and off. I have tried converting the file to rich text format and back, to no avail. The size of the document says a mere 16 kb now as well.

I opened the seemingly blank document with notepad, and found a bunch of jargon along with 2 interesting clues. One was very small pieces of my class notes here and there, in between the coding and jargon. The second was towards the end of the coding, where it said various random things about my HP printer. I did perform a printer test today, and was wondering if that did anything to delete or corrupt my notes.

I performed a system reset back to 5 PM (the file appeared blank at 6 PM, when it said it was last modified). The file is still blank. I have also checked through the recycle bin, nothing.

These notes are very important to me and my grade in this class. I have backed up material from 3 weeks ago, but with 3 hour classes i would still be missing a lot of material >_<. Any help is much appreciated, thank you very much.

I suspect DEP isnt turned off or it wouldn't be able to "shut down word". You can however, simply add word to DEP's exception list and it will ignore it.

Did you look in the "Recycle bin"?

Had you saved it, before it disappeared?

I don't know what I did, but I no longer have Word or Microsoft Words 7.0 or Microsoft Publisher on my computer.
These are the disks I have:

Microsoft Works Suite > 5 disks and MS Office XP and another one called Office XP Small business.
Can anyone tell me (step by step and easy for a dum-dum to understand) how to reinstall?

When I look in add/remove programs from the Control panel, MS Works 7.0 is gone as is Word 2002 as is Publisher. All the others in the Suite are there.
When I click on the desk top shortcuts or from the start menu, I get this popping up (see attachment) for Word and Publisher.

Thanks in advance

Carolyn

Hi,

I am in Works 7.0, and have installed PictureIt, Encarta, Money and MS Word 2002. I can launch all of these programs from the MS Works Launcher, with the exception of MS Word. When I try to launch MS Word, I get the following error :

"The Works Launcher cannot access the task you selected. Files needed to start the program may be missing, corrupted, or may have been deleted. " (etc.)

There is not much help online for this, and what there is seems to refer back to issues with Norton Anti-virus. Problem there is that I don't have Norton installed on my PC.

I am running this under Windows 7, and have tried "run as administrator", as well as running it in XP SP3 compatibility mode.

Any help appreciated.

Thanks and regards,
Andrew Fortune,
