Applications :: Cannot Save - Edit - Open Files In Microsoft Excel

Apr 4, 2010

I'm getting tons of issues opening, saving, and editing files in Microsoft Excel. My checkbook is basically unrecoverable. Files saved give errors that they are read only or the same name as a read only file, despite not being read only. Opening

Quote: Finance_Spreadsheet.xls cannot be accessed. The file may be read only or you may be trying to access a read-only location. Or the server the document is stored on may not be responding......

OS X :: Cannot Open And Save Excel Or PowerPoint Files

Sep 11, 2009

I cannot access or save exel or Powerpoint Files. I did restart the machine after every install. I also repaired the disc permissions but I had two messages come up:
1. SUID file " system/library/ been modified and will not be repaired
2. SUID file " system/library/ been modified and will not be repaired When I try and open an excel or PowerPoint file that already exists, a message pops up and says that "the file cannot be accessed".When I try and save a new file it says that several things could be wrong such as:I have installed and uninstalled so many times. I have called apple and they said its a Microsoft problem so they wouldn't help. I then called Microsoft and they wont help unless I purchase another copy. The copy I originally had got deleted during my reboot. I have no idea how to solve this problem. I need excel in order to do my schoolwork.

Applications :: Microsoft Excel 2004 Not Open In Leopard

May 14, 2008

I'm getting a weird error when I try to open Microsoft Excel 2004. "You can't open the application "Microsoft Excel" because the Classic environment is no longer supported."

1. Excel used to work just fine (I'm not sure if I've used it since I upgraded to Leopard)
2. I've seen other people say on forums that the MS Office 2004 suite works fine with Leopard
3. As far as I know the Classic environment was phased out in Leopard, though I don't think I've ever used the classic environment
4. All my other MS Office Apps work

I'm not having much luck with google, hopefully it's a dumb configuration thing that I don't know about.

Applications :: Cannot Open Document Created In Microsoft OLD Excel For The Macintosh Version 1.x

Dec 12, 2009

Error: Cannot open document created in Microsoft Excel for the Macintosh version 1.x Solution Found: [URL]

Problem: I don't have my old Excel (or at least I can't find it). I do still have my old copies of Office 95 for PC but that doesn't seem to open it either. Probably because back in the day, it wasn't directly compatible. What I need is to be able to open this file in something and get it converted to OpenOffice, Office X or Office 2003.

Applications :: How To Open Files By Default In Microsoft Word 2008

Sep 16, 2009

By default, I save all my word documents in rich text format (.rtf). After I installed Snow Leopard, these files now open by default with Text Edit.

Since I want these files to open by default in Microsoft Word 2008, I right clicked on the file, chose "other", selected "Word 2008", and then checked "always open with". However, the files still open by default in Text Edit...

Since I updated the latest software on 2/2/12, Office For Mac doesn't work correctly.  I can not open Excel or Word documents from Office.  I cannot save a newly created document.  However, I can open an exsisting document by going to the hard drive and double clicking the document I need.  I can't save changes I make to the document once opened.

Every time I try to open an existing document or save a new one Microsoft word crashes. I am able to start a new document but if I try to save it all of the action/editing buttons fade/unhighlight (save, print, quit, copy paste, etc) and I am ubable to do anything. However, most of the buttons in view, history, bookmarks, tools, window & help still work.Then I have to force quit because the option to quit is no longer available.

Software :: Cannot Save Files In Microsoft PowerPoint?

Nov 22, 2009

I have a ~31 MB PowerPoint talk for work. I updated it minimally and it opens in Slide Sorter view just fine and appears normal (ie, all slides show up appropriately). However, once open, I cannot save it, either immediately or after making additional changes. Every time I save it I get a dialog box that is defective: it shows the orange PowerPoint logo on the left, and the aqua blue action button on the right, but the rest of the box is blank. I presume the aqua blue button should say OK or something, but it has not text in it. There is no text in the remainder of the box anywhere. If I click the aqua blue button PowerPoint either crashes or the box goes away and nothing happens. If I try Save As PowerPoint always crashes. Weird. I have no idea what to do.

OS X :: Can't Open Excel Files From IDisk?

Jun 13, 2009

My MBP blew up so am on a temporary Blackbook and luckily all my important day to day docs are on my iDisk, no problem I thought... But something really odd is happening, when I try to open a spreadsheet with Excel (tried 04 and 08) it says "the file may be read only or you may be trying to access a read only location or the server the document on may not be responding".

I can open the file with open office and ALL other file types open fine from iDisk (including Word and PPT).

At the moment I am having to drag the files to my desktop edit them and drag them back to iDisk so all is up to date when I get my computer back.

Has anyone had anything similar? Any tips gratefully received (apart from the obvious; ditch MS Office!).

After first noticing the problem I set iDisk to keep a local copy on the temp machine but this made no difference.

Applications :: IWork Apps To Save Docs As Microsoft Versions?

Apr 22, 2010

I don't mind iWork, but one thing that bugs me is having to specify all the time that i'd like to save the document as the microsoft version (ppt, doc, excel etc) instead of the apple formats. It also isn't that fun to then have to navigate to where the original file is and overwrite it. Any way to just have the apps default save your documents (whether new or old) as microsoft versions?
